"While there is no compulsory
exercise program for this year, wE
are hoping that the women will feel]
the necessity for doing exercises 'onr
their own' at their dorms, sororities
or league houses, and for this reason
we feel that the booklet will be a helr
to the houses," Miss Dietrich con-

Despite icy winter winds, summer
is already here in the fashion sector
of Manhattan, the middle Forties,
where designers are busy with clothes
for the Florida and Southern Cali-
fornia resort seasons. The clothes
they are fashioning today are those
Miss America will be enjoying eight
months from now.
Here are some of the style points
in fabric prints and textures to
expect in next season's clothes, as
glimpsed in Wesley Simpson's fabric
collection now being made up by
scores of playclothes designers.
Prints that tell a story or have
ome central theme are the most
popular. Horses are particularly
numerous in prints this coming sea-
son. Wesley Simpson's Persian pon-
ies, black prancing horses wearing
colorful headgear, are printed on
white shantung, for one of the most!
striking of the new designs. His
Jungle Fantasy is another intriguing!

Black and dark colors have pushed
pastels into the background as far
as play and resort clothes are con-
cerned. It's either black. printed in
dark greens, turquoises, corals, or
cinnamon shades, or bright white,
printed in the deep colors, which
make for the subtlety in the newI
Fabrics themselves are either of
the shantung type which washes so
well and stays fresh for a long time,
or of the crisp linen-type weave,1
such as Wesley Simpson's famous
"North Shore." This fabric, 35%
cotton and 65% rayon, is frequently
tebelized for crease-resistance.
Designer trend is toward whole'
series of play clothes developed from
coordinated fabrics and colors in
prints and plain materials. Thus in
matching sets one can find kneeI
pants and shirt, bra and shorts, a
tie-on skirt that can double as a
cape, plus a short jacket.
