From “Your Beauty and You”: “The older your Easter clothes are this year, the more patriotic. For it shows the world you are making things do and putting your money where it will best help peace to come soon! So, my pet, your Easter Beauty this year depends entirely upon two things – good health and perfect grooming.” Patricia Lindsay, Harrisburg Telegraph columnist, also recommends “a good sudsy bath, a manicure, pedicure, brow trimming and superfluous hair removal” followed by a good night’s sleep (p.6). A new bow or feather for your old hat and a clean suit are all you need to wear. In Europe, Germans and Rumanians are fleeing Odessa as the Russians get closer. Our bombers have crippled Japanese ships in the Carolinas while troops have established a new beachhead at Anzio.
