No Appointment Necessary
uncredited photo, dated 1944

There's no need to make an appointment at this makeshift beauty shop somewhere on the Italian front. A couple of GI cans for a seat, an army cook's jacket for an apron, and a Yank wbo's handy with scissors for a beautician are all a gal needs — and all she can get! — when her locks demand attention. Pretty Mildred Proudfoot of New Canaan, Connecticutt, serving with the American Red Cross, smiles patiently as Sgt. Dennis L. Guthrie of Smithfield, Arkansas, tends to her hair-do.
