Radio Men Put
On 'New Look'
By LOUISE KONING
The common man and the un-
common man have both definitely
put thumbs down on long skirts
and full-blown coats.
Serving as jurors at the Cosmo-
politan magazine's male-tested
fashion show at the Stork Club,
such well-known radio men as
Peter Donald, Peter Roberts and
Ted Malone decided unanimously
that the American men and wom-
en who pay the bills want no part
of the "new look" in women's
They were backed up by com-
ments and letters from dress man-
ufacturers and radio listeners. The
former are protesting that they
have found that retail outlets can-
not move the new look attire.
The four major complaints that
were given are: (1) the fashion
trend forces women to buy new
clothes, throwing budgets out of
line when the government is ask-
ing for conservation; (2) the long
skirts take too much material that
is needed for poverty-stricken Eu-
rope; (3) long skirts, along with
other style features age women
and (4) long skirts just cannot be
worn by women who are chasing
small children around.
One dissenting listener sums
the situation up by writing, "Who
on earth are the droopy dresses
for? A short person looks like a
gnome; a tall person looks like a
skyscraper; a fat person looks like
a tub; a thin person looks like a
There are the words; where are
the actions? We must remember
that women are women, and fash-
ions are fashions, and it seems
that right now fashions have the

Taking first place
By MARILYN JONES .
WOMEN HAVE revolted again !
This appears to be the only explanation for the sudden change
from conservative neutral shades of hosiery into a riot of color. It
seems that one way for women to overcome the boredom of wearing
the tried-and-true colors of hosiery offered during the war is to make
some kind of drastic change.
T HE NEW COLLECTION of revolutionary shades are in part named
after jewels, with each resembling its namesake in color. We find
in this category such shades as ruby, a deep wine shade; amethyst, a
deep purple; asteria, a silver blue and platinum, a dark gray.
In addition to the jewel tones there are four popular shades ro-
mantically named mistique, a hazy autumn taupe which harmonizes
with dark apparel; bronzeskin, a sophiticated brown for costumes in
brown, cocoa and coffee tones and black beauty, a dramatic off-black
for costumes in black, gray plum and mulberry. Another is gunmetal, a
misty gray-black that blends effectively with fall and winter shades,
THE NEW FAD was readily taken up by the younger set, while older
women and many style-conscious people are taking a longer time
to become converted. Many of those who do not really approve of the
new shades are buying them merely to be in style-another manifesta-
tion of the theory that the old "follow the leader" motto- still pre-
vails in the fashion world.
Many stores find it hard to keep the new shades in stock, while the
old conservative shades seem to be moving very slowly, merchandis-
Dye manufacturers have fortunately come to the rescue of those
who do not wish to discard their old hosiery. A dye has been perfected
which proves very effective in transforming the old shades into beau-
tiful new colors.
