How devastatingly :boring it would be if we all .were the same without the little eccentricities that set us off from those around us. These little quirks, however, can be something of a headache, too. Take, for instance, your hair. Are you one of those plagued with problem hair? By this I mean one with hair that's too curly, too fine or thin, or do you have an obstinate cowlick that has been given you noth- ing but trouble over the years? Some too, have the problem of letting their hair grow out to a longer desired length. Tell- tale roots at the hair line and the part can also be a diffi- culty for some women between touch-ups. For advice on all of these problems, drop in at Terry Ave. Beauty Salon. It's our business to know. Phone MU 2-1881., Terry..
