Bathers at Willow Lake, near Glendale, Calif., have adopted mass-production methods to speed up the process of acquiring coveted coats of sun tan. They employ a motor-driven atomizer to apply a newly developed milk spray, which is said to protect the skin from unaccustomed exposure to the sun’s rays and to help prevent burning- and peeling.

UNRULY HAIR Stays Neatly Combed (May, 1938)

This shows how much hair styles have changed in the last 60 odd years. The “unruly hair” looks just like a modern haircut whereas the Glostora saturated model looks like he should be the evil rival in a Harry Potter movie.

UNRULY HAIR Stays Neatly Combed
Even Stubborn Hair Will Stay In Place
Costs But A Few Cents To Use — a bottle lasts for months

IS YOUR HAIR difficult to keep in place? Does it lack natural gloss and lustre? It is very easy to give it that rich, glossy and orderly appearance so essential to well-groomed boys.

Just rub a little Glostora through your hair once or twice a week — or after shampooing, and your hair will then stay, each day, just as you comb it.
Glostora gives hair that natural, rich, well-groomed effect, instead of leaving it stiff and artificial looking as waxy pastes and creams do.

Try it! A large bottle of Glostora costs but a trifle at any drug store.

Delusions About Shaving (Jan, 1933) (Jan, 1933)

Delusions About Shaving

By J. G. Pratt

The author of this article has gained an international reputation for his remarkable work in high-powered microscopic photography, as Scientific Photographer for the Bureau of Entomology, U. S. Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C. This article was prepared by special arrangement with the editors of this publication.

AMONG countless thousands of men who shave every morning before breakfast, probably few phases of the process equal in importance the factor of one’s own imagination.

In the following paragraphs it is not my intention to criticise any one’s personal habits, but merely to present a few scientific facts to help the man who does his own shaving, and perhaps guide him in the purchase of new razor accessories.

Hardware Chic (Sep, 1935)

Hardware Dealer Fashions Feminine Hats from Merchandise

SOUP strainers, window screening, metal scouring pads and even fishing plugs were fashioned into hats by an ingenious hardware merchant in dressing up his windows for a special sale.

A tray from a weighing scale furnished the foundation for a “Military” bonnet which included such accessories as a metal scouring cloth chin strap and a cocktail strainer pom. He fashioned the brim for an “Afternoon” hat from a strip of window screen, used a soup strainer for the crown and fishing plugs and a scouring pad for the feminine frills. An upended paint brush was used to produce the final touch in chic styling.

Eye-Glasses Double for Microscope (Jul, 1936)

I don’t really see how this works.

Eye-Glasses Double for Microscope
EYE-GLASSES which can be used instead of a microscope have been invented by C. Dreisseg of Hamburg, Germany. The glasses obtain their microscopic power from specially treated dark paper.

This paper changed the focus of the eye so as to magnify the size of a fixed object. Even minute particles can be distinguished. The dark paper is encased in a leather band which fits snugly around the eyes to exclude all possible light rays. The novel glasses are ideal for student use.
