                                 The one piece flat crepe frock was a trousseau must, whilst Capes
                                 would be important for day or evening. Also, every type of bolero
                                 including bolero effects would be fashionable. You can see cape
                                 effect sleeves in the image on the left, plus a range of flared flutes
                                 and pleats arrangements. In general the lines are much softer than
                                 in the 1920s.
                                 To be smartly dressed in Spring 1930 a woman was advised to
                                 have a suit in her wardrobe, perhaps a 'Beller' styled one with a
                                 high waist highlighted by a belt.
                                 Brimmed hats were also in fashion again and four or six button
                                 suede gloves the ideal accessory. The final advice was to use jew-
                                 elry sparingly during the day and that chokers were very appropri-
                                 ate when jewelry was used.

Shut off the gas valve and clean the screens in the carburetor and
gas filter bowl. A vacuuming of the car interior might be accom-
panied by a removal of the kick panels and door panels to remove
any debris that may have accumulated. This helps prevent rust
due to moisture absorption. Paint these areas if needed. Grease
