Babies To Smile ht Penney's This Week A flock of bouncing babies will be smiling, frowning and making ~faces for a patient photographer at J. C. Penney Co. Store in Char les Town this week. Pixy Pin- Ups, a photographic concern which works exclusively through Penney's will be at the store to take pictures of babies and child- ren up to the age of five years. Pixy Pin-Ups is an unusual op- eration, for it employs as photo- graphers only young and unmar- ried women, many of whom are re crusted from air.line hostess i schools. Stanley Hoke, who heads the organization, says they get best results with girls who have had little or no experience in op- erating a camera. They are easier to train in the very exacting me- thods which Pixy Pin-Ups requir- es of its staff of 52 photographers. Each girl goes through an inten sive two week training period at a Charlotte, N. C. studio. A coach is assigned to each girl who works with a specially designed electric camera, the same type as that used in the field. The camera takes 650 shots without reloading.
