British Lads To Wear Tin Hats; In Case Of War They'll Make Some More

I'- T u 'Th


Looking Qiass



Intended for use o British air raid wardens and others who must be outside during a bombing attack, 1,000,000 tin hats are being produced at
plant in Dagenham, Essex.

Here are some new colors to accent those beloved basics, black and
brown: jelly apple, maple sugar, Baccus grape, green tea, and toddy tan. The
names are descriptive enough to tell you what the colors are. They all have
the rich tang of fall and work wonders by spicing up your wardrobe.
The pork-pie hat which made its debut last year has now
threatened to replace the favorite roller for casual wear. In case
dl you aren't familiar with the queer sounding term, it's a flat-crowned
rather large brimmed hat usually of soft felt and copied from those
of the dandies of a few centuries back. You'll love it to wear with
reversibles and perennial polo coats as well as all your suits, par-
ticularly if the roller doesn't show you at your best.
Something quite new by way of costume jewelry is shavings-
the kind you used to pick up from the carpenter's scraps and stick
in your hair for curls. Some smart designer hit on the idea of hav-
ing them processed, lacquered and shaped so that they look like flowers. Now
they're going to be worn as very smart boutonnieres on tweeds, especially.
Another phase of the forestry idea is the use of lacquered pine cones and
acorns strung to form necklaces or mounted to make clips. These, too,
are grand for tweeds.
Airplanes are now leaving their mark on fall dresses. Aviation symbols
such as propellors or wings are being used to brighten informal woolens by
way of novelty.
If your budget allows for anything as extravagant as a costume suit, one
of the smart fall finds is a bronzine green wool dress with a beaver-like
mouton jacket in brown. The flared-back jacket you'll wear with
other dresses-even your formals-and then the dress will be
practical under your winter coat.
Latest of the Robin Hood inspirations is the draw-string money
bag like the wallet the gay adventurer was supposed to have used.
It's made of green suede lined in bright red. Get Robin Hood red
makeup to put in it and you'll be all set for fall.
Cardigans this fall are "Sloppy Joes." They're English style
-long, wide and droopy, but oh, so smart. The English influence
is strong on new sweaters anyway, for colors are called "Dominion"
blue, London rose, and English green. And don't forget the im-
portance of sweaters for evening.
Classic coats for campus wear will be as always tailored camel's hair
models. This year the double or single breasted model with back belt or
no belt at all and back vent has supplanted the usual full-backed model
with careless belt that has held sway for so long.
This summer the two piece dresss in chambray cut on tailored lines was
popular. It was made with shirtwaist top, gored skirt of contrasting color,
the two held together by a trim belt of natural leather. This popular style
has carried over into. fall in soft botany flannel. Popular combinations
are two shades of the same color or contrasting colors such as greyed blue
for the top and grape-wine for the skirt.

ably the most common inexpensive'
car in this country, M. Sallet replied,
"Oh, no! Fordsare for the richer
classes only. We drive a Citroen."
This is the inexpensive French car,
manufactured by the famous Andre
Citroen, known as the Ford of France.
The work week of the French teach-
er is only 20 hours in France, M.
Sallet reports. This consists of four
hours of teaching each day for five
days a week. The remainder of the
teacher's time is spent at home, usu-
ally marking papers-of which French
students have many times more than
American students-or in preparing
lessons. The teacher also does much
studying for he is constantly taking
University courses and other work to
perfect himself, M. Sallet said. It is
for this reason that the French have
among the best-prepared school
teachers in the world.
In three years, teaching in a high

let doesn't even know his own col-
leagues, he says.
No sports are participated in
France, he declared. This is true of
the school curriculum as well as of
recreation or pastime.
Subjects taught in the school com-
parable to our high school and junior
college are the old-fashioned essen-
tials. They include history, geogra-
phy, French literature, and composi-
tion, physics, natural science, chem-
istry and a little of foreign lan-
guages. There is no vocational work
offered, he said.
M. and Mme. Sallet, both of whom
speak very little English, arrived in
this country only three weeks ago and
have spent the past few days in seeing
the middle West of this country. They
have been the guests of Miss Kathe'r-
ine Swift at the French House. The
Sallets will leave early next week on
the return voyage to France.
