Despite the world depression America's beauty bill for last year was
$750,000,000, and it continues to grow. Now, some of our law-makers
have suddenly awakened to the possibilities of tbo cosmetic business
as a fertile source of revenue and a bill has been introduced to provide
for a 10 per cent luxury tax on lip-stick, rouge and other aids to
beauty. But tbo women are up in arms to oppose the passage of wbal
they call an unjust imposition. They deny that cosmetics ar a luxury,
asserting that they are as much of a necessity as m man's neckties or
razor. Furthermore, tbey say they owe it to the stronger (?) sex te make
themselves as pleasant to look upon as possible. When on considers
the amount of pounding, plucking and paring that a woman will under
go for her looks, one can form a good estimate of the ferocity with
which they will fixht the bill that might deprive thorn of their make-ut.
