Styles have been a knotty problem to those who designed them, tryed lo sell them or essayed to wear them ,ln the first place the coronation in-- fjuence launched a vogue for "regal Splendor' 1 — and turning out "regal splendor" at $10.75 is no small trick. It kept designers working overtime 'Next came the vogue for the cor- selette waistline with its concave diaphragm inspired by Ihe clothes and figure of the Duchess of Windsor. Tltese two were difficult to design and niake practical for women whose diaphragms, to put it mildly, were not concave. : The fashion marts which live by selling styles were likewise faced with Missing Dancer Slain in Paris The mysterious disappearance of Jean Dekoven, 21-year-old American dancer pictured above, finally has been solved by Paris police, who announced that Eugene Weldmann, a German, confessed that he kidnaped and killed the girl for the 600 francs ($24) and $500 in travelers' ch«cks she carried. Weidmann also confessed slaying four other persons, police said. He told authorities he buried the dancer's body in an abandoned villa. Miss Dekoven disappeared from her Paris hotel last July. a first class "headache." Heports from the market are that business has not been good with fabric manufacturers, clothes manufacturers or retail shops. There is One bit of balm in Gelead, however. Reports from the market note an increased trend among women to buy quality—good classic tailored and sports clothes designed without fashion whimsies, which are always wearable and smart. Lillian Russell Revival The woman who wore the fashions of 1937 suffered another "headache." A number of them, hearing of a "vogue for elegance," shimmering satins and gleaming lames, decided the mode was not for them and a limited income. They clung to last year's frock. Others, trying to cram their figures into 'those slim-waisted corselelte dresses, struck a snag they could not get around in haste. This fall's fashions displayed a slim twentieth century version of the Lillian Russell figure with an accented bust of greater fullness, a slim waist and slender molded hips. Women who were over- plump could not fit into a concave diaphragm frock. Those who were oVer-thin lacked the required curves. Only the slender women with a good figure could make the fashion grade. The rest threw up their hands in despair. Nor did their fashion worries end German Possession of Islands Talked AP Writer Says It Would Tend to Ease International Pains WASHINGTON—It occurred to us while rambling that it might ease a lot of international growing pains if the United States should give the Philippines to Germany. Germany wants a colony or two. The United States has decided it does not—at least not the Philippines. Germany used to have a host of little island possessions east and north of the Philippines. They were scattered over the western Pacific like leaves on a mill pond. The war came, and Japan got them in payment for her assistance lo the allies. Japan aided the allies by taking a piece of China which Germany held before. The idea of Germany owning the Philippines suggests many excellent possibilities. Japan could not kick much. Japan is allied with Germany in an anti-communism bloc and ought to be glad to have her ally close at hand fcr aid in emergencies. It is doubtful that Japan really wiuld want her ally so close at lu, •'!. hut under the circumstances what could s>iij •.ay Might Please Everybody England should be pleased to* have Germany in the Pacific as n sort of associate break on Japan. Except for the last war, England has been on friendly terms with Germany aboul as long as with any country. The Philippines would make a fine colony for enterprising Germany. The islands are packtd full of raw materials—coconut oil, hemp, timber, sugar, gold and, very likely, oil. And Germany has been testy in recent days about her lack of raw materials. The Filipinos might object—but not unanimously. They do not want freedom unanimously, nor do they want U remain with the United States unanimously. Perhaps Hitler could make them unanimous. He has made Germany unanimous.. (FS: This sounds too simple; mus be a catch; in it somewhere. Guess we'd better ask Mr. Hull.)
