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.
