'AGEFOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, IS.A. ! Fashions a Chance New York Designers May Replace the Experts From Paris By ADELAIDE KJKRB AJP PMhhm Editor A number of America'* ace designer* are »t work on the creation of fashfcm* without Paris aid. Many at them bclJeve the American tehion world i* fating th* most critic*! period of its life. The war has raised the question whether Paris will b« able to ««>- tinue iU participation on the fashion front. Sotjn after the war was started nearly ali the big houses on which the New York garment center him leaned so long for inspiration, closed, ffww most of them arc opening again, expecting to produce nnall rnid- iesuwn collections. But more big questions loom ahead. Can Paris. beset by the economic And psychological handicaps of war, continue to produce new fashirms which have zip? If she can, will the American fashion world be able to get what Paris produces? If not, what -will,America do? 'Create for ourselves," Kay some New York tycoons and the little group of dcaignera who have originated fame fashions of their own. "None of 6s wants to profit by the trouble which hajt Mruck Europe. But the ultualirm exist* and it gives American designers a chance to show what they can do," Some say tbt-y have no intention of trying to go abroad while the war Joffta or of importing model's from the coining Parix midseason collections. They are deep in work on their own design* for resort and advance spring wear. But there i.i another sizable contingent in the style mart which , cling* doggedly to the hope of continuing work with Paris. Mont of its member* have no axpiraion to the title of "designer." They manufacture clothes in volume to sell and long have ciun<! to Parlt' guiding hund. If they con'no longer hold to that hand, they feel they will be in the dark, and they view the prospect with gloom.. "Who's Koin« to Kettle «uch questions ax xkirt length and silhouette?" ihcy cry. "There'.'! not a :;tronK enough leiidership in America to do it. In this business of fashion smoebody's KOI to be hot*, or the whole style world'.-) in chaos." Nobody Iriiw to answer that ijuc.i- tiOn yet. But in Seventh Avenue akyscnipperjf and 47th .Street workrooms designer;; are at grips with the problem of collection!) v/hich v/ill show what they can do. First problem they tackled wa.i fabrics, since quality and originality of weave arc important factor.'; in the inspiration and creation of new f,il- houttes.

The gigantic army of the world's largest country is commanded by a man who learned his soldiering when he was thrown into it on the battlefield. Until then he had been a rnineboy, shepherd, farm-labor- fr, factory-hand, revolutionist and many-limes political prisoner. He is Marshal Klcrncnti Efremovich Vor- oshiloff. Soviet War Commissar. Russia's present dominant position on the coiftincnt of Europe is due in no .Mnall measure to him. Convinced that Red Russia could expect, at any time, a war at the hands of a capitalist power or group of powers, Voroshiloff organized a (.'cneral staff, mechanised the forces, built a large air fleet, encouraged sue)) novel military ideas as "parachute infantry." Well-built, powerful-looking astride his horse, easy to talk to. cheerful, and handsome in Russian eyes. "Klim" has come a long way. Born in 1X31 into the family of a railway watchman, he went to work at 7, earning a nickel a day in a mine. At 10. he turned shepherd and farm-laborer. At 18, he organized and led a foundry strike, was blacklisted by the police, found himself unable to get another job. At 22, he joined the Lenin-led 'Bolshevik) wing of the Russian Social-Democratic LaborFarty. His life became a series of arrests, exiles, escapes and resumptions of revolutionary activity. The Russian revolution of 1U17 turned him into a military 'man. Generally considered the ablest commander to emerge from the civil wars that followed the revolution, Vor- oshiloff was promoted to increasingly important posts, finally Dccame People's Co'mmissar for Military and Naval Affaris in 1925.
