Subject: Re: "False Faces"
I always called them "masks," as did all my childhood playmates in La
Jolla, CA, in the late 40s and early 50s - except for one who called them
"false faces." Unfortunately, I don't know what part of the country his
parents came from.

I was interested in Luanne's brief mention of "false faces" in Chicago
since I had forgotten that term, even though it was what we always called
Halloween masks when I was little. Do any of the rest of you remember
using that term?
