Well, judging from the impressive stack of "unRSVPed" wedding
invitations cluttering my desk, I guess it's time to begin thinking about
what to wear to summer weddings.
So, conscientious student that I am, I took this morning off to
see what the local clothiers had to offer in the way of suitable dresses.
I hopped on my trusty Schwinn and jogged over to a fashionable
After a hearty and personable greeting from my favorite clerk I
was hastily guided to a lumpy salon chair. Whereupon she immediately
produced an array of garments which might be nice for an elaborate
costume party but certainly in poor taste for a wedding.
Dresses this season, she told me, are definitely emphasizing femi-
Sheaths with wide cummerbunds and bouffant bows with flowering
ribbon streamers are cosmopolitan and flattering to the petite junior
size gals as well as the larger sizes.
Top this off with an illusion veil (which doesn't look like a hat but
is). Then add white gloves, matching or contrasting handbag and shoes
and the wedding guest will look stunning but not as if she's trying
to outdo the bride.
This season designers are being kind to the tall, thin girl, of which
variety I happen to be.
Therefore, I was entranced with the filmy, floating chiffon and
organdy creations. The splashy colored silk print is also very good
Not quite waltz and not quite street length, these dresses can be
worn as easily and graciously for a cocktail party, tea, or wedding.
For. instance, picture yourself in blue cotton organdy with white
embroidery. This gown is sleeveless, has a tight fitting bodice ending
in a shallow collarless boat neckline. At the waist a cummerbund
ties in the front. The voluminous skirt billows out from the waist with
the help of many crinolines.
Don a pair of short white gloves, dyed to match blue shoes, and
a matching blue straw cartwheel and you'll grace any early summer
Don't try to outdo the bridal party. For instance, if the attend-
ants are wearing picture hats better choose something else for your
Simplicity is always smart.

Jean noted that "there are a
number of jobs in engineering
that women can do equally well or
better than men.
"We can help to fill the need
for engineers in such fields as de-

marked. "We don't want to re-
place the men in engineering -
we want to add."
