'roblems of Travel Great,
deed To Observe Etiquette
Comfortable Look Latest in Men's Suits
By MIKE HARRAH
With summer approaching comes
the possibility of traveling; and'
with travel one is faced with the
perennial problem of tipping.
Etiquette experts claim that
manners away from home are best
revealed in tipping procedures. On
ships, planes and trains there are
definite rules to be followed.
Just before disembarking from
a 'ship and beginning to tour, a
passenger should tip the room
steward, table steward, head-wait-
er, wine steward, and deck and
Tipping rates are becoming more
and more standardized. According
tio one expert, the steward who
has taken care of your room, the
table steward, and the head wait-
er expect to receive between $7.50
and $10.00 per person.
Tipping deck stewards, bath
stewards, cabin boys and the
"boots" may be done at the timef
of service or at the end of the
voyage. They usually receive one
dollar or more depending on the
amount of service rendered.
On most ships the chief steward
is classed as a ship's officer and
as such, is never tipped.
For those traveling by plane the
problem is not so complex. All
members of the flight crew have
professional status and are not
When you arrive at your desti-
nation the airlines provide porter
service from the plane into the
checkout area. These are staff
porters and are not tipped, but
porters (sky caps) who take over
from them should be tipped ap-
proximately 25 cents per bag.
Train travel involves tipping the
red caps in the station as well as
the porter and steward in the din-
ing car. In most terminals red
caps receive a minimum of $.25
per bag and more where service
has been prompt and courteous.

Looks of clothes are important,
but the really important thing is
that they feel right as they are
The trend in suits is toward the
"natural" look. Americans all over
want to feel comfortable in what
they wear. And feeling comfortable
is most important, for only if
one feels comfortable in his clothes
will he look "natural."
Suits are being tailored to meet
the demand. Padded shoulders are
giving way to the shoulders which
slope naturally. The coat which
fits close *to the bdy bows to the
coat which drops comfortably
straight down. Smart tailoring,
while still important, has taken a
back seat to comfort.
Want Moving Room
Americans like a lot of room for
movement. Clothes which are too
fitted just don't have popular ap-
peal in this country. English tai-
loring and styles will some effect
on American suits, but, in general,
the "natural" look will prevail.
It's the style that everyone wants.
The most popular suit for the
coming season is a three piece
summer suit of dacron and cotton.
Suitable for wear during nine
months of the year, this suit is
lightweight, but still practical for
early spring and late autumn.
Demand Darker Colors
Thergreatest demand is for the
darker, solid colors in this suit.
Soft plaids and muted stripes are
also popular, but the trend is now
getting away from the brighter,
flashier colors and combinations.
In lightweight suits, principally
for summer wear, the cotton and
dacron, wash-and-wear outfit con-
tinues to be in demand. Its com-
plete versatility for every occasion
makes it a popular outfit, espe-
cially for students, who can often
make good use of its "wash-and-

dacron is the latest thing. Because
of its linen base, it holds a beauti-

out the long autumn days. Light-
weight, but still warm, it will see
good use in autumn, when the
temperature can vary greatly in
the course of day.

tive and striking color combina-
tions for the coming season.
Formal wear varies little from
year to year. The most popular
outfit is, of course, the traditional
tropical worsted slack in black or
midnight blue, with a white din-
ner jacket. The white dinner
jacket, always single-breasted with
the shawl collar, comes in many
different materials, including the
expensive raw silk. Madras and
batik dinner jackets have also
recently gained acclaim.
Spring has sprung, and the na-
tion changes its style of dress to
fit the requirements of the season.
In the past, the "Continental"
look, the "Ivy League" look have
been high on the scene.
This year, however, the trend is
toward the middle ground. The
"natural look" combination of all
the fads and extremes is sweep-
ing the nation this spring.

By JOHN ROBERTS
An increased use of gold and
olive, but no revolutionary depart-
ures in style is the forecast for
male fashions this spring.
The only major innovation is
the use of India Madras fabrics
in items ranging from sports jack-
ets to hatbands. Madras is a mot-
tied-looking, felt-like cloth home-
spun on primitive looms and im-
ported from India.
Asno two pieces are exactly
alike, clothing made from this
fabric has a distinctive unique-
ness which will appeal to the in-
dividualist. The authentic, vege-
table-dyed colors are guaranteed
Gold, Olive Popular
The stampede to gold and olive
is most pronounced in shirts and
trousers, with some influence also
observed in sports jackets. Most
store managers connect the use
of the new colors to the general
