But that doesn't mean that I Ihe Glamor Girls of 1949 are going I to forego new school wardrobes. I Exposed to fashions all day long, j movie children are extra clothes con- i scions. And studio designers and j movie mothers wisely encourage them ! in this, at least to the extent of let- j ing them help select their clothes. learn what colors are best on them and wh-it sytles suit them. They develop patience in trying on several outfits until the right one is found. "Native" Dresses Very Popular They know, too, that little girls like "special" frocks so that they can refer airily to "my bustle dress." much as a society matron says. "1 think I"l wear my Chanel lace with the pearls tonight.' 1 They have a wide variety this fall, with styles contributed from many countries. The English-princess lines still arei being used in fall coats, but in little else. Instead, there are Dutch dresses and bonnets, Scotch plaid skirts, and j Tyrolean costumes of knitted skirts held up by wild-embroidered suspenders with tasseled caps to match the crocheted sweaters and hug-me- tights. New for "best" wear is a long- sleeved, circular-skirted skating frock of velveteen, buttoned in silver or gold or trimmed with stiff Irish lace or cut-work embroidered linen. Smaller girls' best dresses follow peasant styles so closey that they are almost like costumes, complete with ittle aprons and caps. Even cvery-day cotton frocks can have what Gloria Jean. Universal's new 11-year-old singer, calls "tang." She has acquired a great affection for the word and of a contrasting bow or gadget of any kind she says, "Isn't this pretty. It gives the dress a tang." One of the fall frocks that the studio helped her select surprised her considerably because it didn't look like much on a hanger. But the minute she tried it on she was sold completely, because she discovered its rust color, printed in small green leaves, exactly matched her hair. Another was a dusty-blue cotton in solid color with trimming of fan- pleated narrow ruffles all around its circular pockets and its demure round collar. When its narrow sash was tied tight, she found ho wfull the skirt was, and lover it, because it swung out when she turned around fast. A third wash dress that Gloria particularly liked was a Dutch-boy style. Its silver buttons and cornucopia pockets were very special, she thought. Show Bustle Effeef, Too Her idea of a magnificent costume is a dress without sleeves and a fox coat, but mean while a pink party dress that is all over ruffles will do. A Sunday frock is from Lanz of California, a thin wollen trimmed in bands of red peasant embroidery, but its greatest distinction is the bustle effect made by cartiridge pleating—oh, definitely tang. "I love nice clothes because they give you a nice appearance, and Dial's very important, for a girl." the 11-year-old said seriously. "So I don't mind trying on all the dresses mother wants me to when we go shopping, even If we don't buy them. But I do not like to try or. shoes. I like these best of all," she showed open-toed canvas sandals. "But I guess I'd ruin the effect of my new bustle dress with them." Russia and Japan Agree to a Peace Armistice Announced on the Manchoukuo-Mon- golian Frontier MOSCOW, Russia —i/P,— Soviet Russia and Japan Friday agreed to an armistice in their "vestpocket' 1 war on the Manchoukou-Outer Mongolia border. Some diplomatic quarters saw the move as a passible fore- runner to a non-aggression pact. The agreement to end hostilities on the frontier between Japanese-dominated Manchoukuo and Sovieticti/.cd Outter Mongolia was announced by the Soviet official news agency. Fighting had continued intermittently sinc'j May 11. i Appointment of Consiantin Smetanin as Soviet ambassador to Tokio also was announced. Smetanin has been serving as charge d'affairs in Tokio. j where Russia has been without an; ambassador since June 5. 19.'i8. The armistice was to begin at 2 \ p. in. Saturday. One reliable source expressed belief that a non-aggression pact between the two nations had been signed and might be juinouncf.-d Saturday. A commission of two Japanese-Man- ^chfjukuotin arid two Sovict-Mcing-MUri representatives will be irga.-ii/.er "at the earliest pssible date" to establ::-}- a frontier line between the two slates in the area where intoi-mittcm war fare has been in progress aim '• May 11. but speedy Cro.ssett Kagles, 26 to 6, on ii muddy field.
