DON'T MISS A SINGLE BARGAIN! CHARGE IT NOW PAY OPEN DAILY 10 TO 10 HOGAN BLVD LOCK HAVEN 1-Piece Swim Suit Hit Shore 30 Years Ago NEW YORK (AP) Amid dire predictions of moral perdition, topless bathing suit bit American beaches just thirty years ago this month. The furor was not to be believed. The city fathers of Atlantic City, N.J., home of the Miss America contest, said they would never tolerate such an obscenity on their strands. Across the country there were outraged howls. Bare bosoms? Belly buttons? And worse, Hairy bosoms and stomachs? Because the guardians of public morals were talking about men swimming in just trunks.

Until 1937, the men of America had been swimming in one- piece or two-piece knit bathing suits with more material above the belt than below. Most of the trunk parts had skirts over them, moreover. Like the topless fad for females, the mens' craze originated on the French Riviera, spread to California and then insinuated its -way to the East Coast. Life Magazine commented then that "in the more inhibited East a male costume consisting solely of trunks was, until just recently, cause for arrest on almost all public beaches and raised eyebrows on many a private one." It wasn't until the next year that Long Island's Long Beach allowed men to air their chests and Atlantic City held off until the outbreak of World War n. Bathing suit manufacturers complained that there was little chance for originality in design just plain black knit trunks with a white canvas The next year in its July 18, 1938, issue Life showed pictures with such captions as "trunks do Httle for faulty posture," "hairy chests are becoming public," "trunks should be privately fixed," and "trunks should be worn high." Atlantic City, and other outs, have long since lost theif battle: The bathing suit manufacturers have discovered Heeding Madras, boxing trunks, Bermuda shorts, cabana suits and a great many other changes on the black knit trunks they thought were the limit.

Will the topless fad for women spread as fast and the objections sound as silly so soon?
