JUNE 19, 1933

Augusta bread-makers are joining the fast-moving procession now speeding toward business recovery, and tomorrow will link arms with executives of the Southern Bakeries Association in a meeting in Atlanta to determine what will be done about the price of bakery products.

Flour may jump up to $1.25 per barrel as a result of the 30-cents-a-bushel processing tax on wheat just announced by Secretary of Agriculture Wallace.

    WHAT DOES YOUR COLOR CHOICE SAY ABOUT YOU?

    Pick the perfect hue for that kitchen cabinet, garage door or guest room, and find out what your choice really means.

    Leatrice Eiseman can tell you. She knows all about true colors - literally. For 25 years, manufacturers, businesses and designers consulted her about the best colors for products, packaging, corporate identities, and interior and exterior designs.

    In Colors for Your Every Mood (Capital Books, $20), Ms. Eiseman takes her expertise from the board room to the living room, telling readers which colors evoke feelings of whimsy, nurturing, tradition, romance and tranquility. The book includes examples of 150 color combinations, pointers for choosing a scheme for any place in the home, and reportage on psychological research about color.

  • Pink - People who prefer pink are soft, tender friends. Romantic and refined, they are upset by violence of any kind.
  • Black - People who prefer black often have conflicting attitudes. They might be conventional and sophisticated, or might like to think of themselves as worldly and serious, very dignified.
  • Orange - Orange lovers are agreeable, gregarious, charming and always looking for a new challenge. Because orange people are fascinated by many things, they can be fickle. The newest friend is often the best friend.
  • Blue - Blue people are trusting, cool and confident. They think twice before acting and prefer sticking to a close circle of friends. Because of their highly developed sense of responsibility, "blues" are often perfectionists.
  • Brown - Browns love simplicity and comfort. They are loyal, understanding and firm. They manage money well and are intolerant of others who think, act or talk too quickly.
  • Purple - Purple people are enigmatic, generous and highly creative. They have a quick perception of spiritual ideas. They are easy to live with but hard to know.
