From page 60 of ' When Two or Three '
' Cosmetics '
Mrs. H. RICHARDSON
This morning Mrs. Richardson is to sketch the history of a craze that was fashionable in the time of the ancient Egyptians and has remained so more or les; ever since. She will describe various new ways in which the Greeks and Romans used cosmetics, though they retained the Egyptians' kohl for the eyes, and how, as the years went by. women had a cosmetic tradition behind them, as it were, of sweet scents, darkened eyes, and red and white paint '.
She will describe cosmetics in Elizabethan times, and in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries when the craze was rampant and men carried ' vanity boxes ' to the wars. Cosmetics in Victorian times when ladies languished and make-up was pale and subtle and put on to deceive.
Cosmetics in our own times, when everything has swung round and make-up once more is as bright and vivid as the plumage of a fancy pheasant.

This musical comedy was done as a stage play both in England and America and has also been filmed. It is welcome news that Edith Day is to broadcast in the part she created in the London production at the Prince Edward Theatre in 1930. She is as distinguished on the air as she is on the stage, and listeners will remember her broadcasts in Frederica and Show Boat in 1934, and in Desert Song last year. They will remember her singing in several ' Songs from the Shows ', particularly in ' From the Royal Box' during Silver Jubilee Week.
'Rio Rita ' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 9.0
