New Plaid Materials
Are Chic For Evening
The mysterious people who design
materials have really let themselves
go this year and some of the results
are startingly beautiful. The clan
plaids of old find foreign figures
running through their stereotyped
pattern. Satin stripes shine subtly
on one taffeta dress while gold or
silver lam.e glitters in the plaid of
another. Even satin and velvet have
gotten together in a remarkably wov-
en fabric.
The local windows are alive with
new ideas in evening dresses, so why
not discard the "black or white is
always good" fallacy and let's get
some of the color we display in our
sweaters and skirts into our formals?

The Nation's Leading Column on the Nation's Affairs


EHESE ARE DAYS of great stories of
political and economic struggle. Covering
those stories calls for minds of the biggest
calibre in alertness, resource and gift of
expression. In Pearson and Allen you
have them.
They have made of "The Washington
Merry-Go-Round" the nation's leading
column of report, interpretation anSI com-
ment upon the nation's affairs. They are

far ahead in getting, explaining and weigh-
ing the news of Washington and every
sphere it affects.
Tersely, trenchantly and courageously,
they tell you what the nation is doing and
what that means to you. The color, the
life, the portent of Washington and the
personalities which people it, come vividly
and clearly before you with every appear-
ance of "The Washington Merry-Goe
