How long have you yearned to go adventuring; to sail the seas in aristocratic ships, to put in at strange ports? How often have you wished for an exhilirating day out-of-doors playing golf, polo, tennis, riding or shooting? How many times have you been faced with the problem of where to go, how to get there, what to see, what to play and what to wear? It has happened to us a thousand and one times and each time it has left us in a dither, but now Wanamaker comes to our rescue with their Travel and Vacation show. Their entire first floor is devoted to vacation problems and their solutions, a floor with exhibits and instructions on archery, swimming, diving, fly casting, tennis, golf and the proper clothes to wear for each. The American Express Travel Bureau and the Red Book Magazine Camp and School Bureau are there to tell you down to the last minute detail where to go, how to get there and just how much it will cost.

If Dusting Powder has always been just Dusting Powder to you then try the new Ann Rovan product. It is unique among toilet articles, a dusting powder that sheds water, acting like the feathers on a duck’s back. In addition to being mildly antiseptic, cool and deodorizing it actually takes ### any excess film of water w### may be left on the skin after hurried or incomplete drying. You’ll love it once you have used it and it is a thrill which will enrich your skin and leave it with a glamorous smoothness.

Never before have we been furniture conscious! Like grandmother, we used to think that decorating a home or an apartment was something you did once in a lifetime, but now we realize that that no longer holds true. Thursday at the opening of the Dansley Modern Furniture Co., 14 East 38th street, our imagination was excited by the new trends in furniture, in fabrics, in wood treatments-things like that-and we feel that we’ll go on being excited for life. These ingenuous merchants have done the utmost in furniture style decoration. Their great love is for modern furniture, but realizing that there is a tendency towards the neo-classic (a combination of empire and directories), they have retained the modern design but compromised on the finish. In that way no effect of the modern is lost but rather a full, rich and harmonious pattern is completed. Their prices are lower than average and their showrooms a thrill to visit. Don’t fail to see that maple wood fireplace, Jacquered with glossy black and trimmed with curved motif chromium. It’s the last word in charm and wherever it is housed it will proclaim to the world that this home is sma### alert and supremely 1934.

Here’s something new and gr### and believe it or not it’s a ### down shower. Imagine, if you ### an in-a-tub shower that permits you to sit down, keeps your hair dry and needs no curtain.
