Perhaps they won't go so far as to walk on all fours, but it's not unlikely that they will start barking soon after acquiring that new winter coat. You see, the smart thing is the "poodle look" for fall. Your new coat or suit should be as shaggy as fido's if you really want to be in on the ground floor of the new fashion trend. That's what New York designers say, previewing their fall collections this week for the benefit of 150 visiting fashion editors, representing newspapers throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, Denmark, Sweden France, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Brazil and South Africa. * • » * INITIAL SHOWINGS bear out their predictions. So bulky and shaggy are the new winter coats that often it's hard to find the wearer underneath it all. "Poodle cloth," in a score of different textures and called by as many names, is the particular pet of the designers this year. They present it in greatcoats, jackets, suits and dresses, usually in neutral canine colors and in such realistic textures that in all logic each coat should be provided with a wagging tail. The poodles may be either French or domestic and may emulate the close-curled pelt of the former of the shaggy-dog look of the latter. Some are stiff, heavy fabrics of the general texture of doormats, and others are light as and Mrs. Elmer Onhiser and grandchildren, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Cripps and daughters, Cecil Cripps and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Glen Procise, Mr. and Mrs. Claude Cantrell, Mr. and Mrs. Devon Boyes and daughter, and Mr. and Mrs. Jake Cripps and daughter, Deliah, all of Salem; Mrs. Ceola Miller and son, of Centralia; Mr. and Mrs. Claude Cramer of Yale; Mr. and Mrs. Warren Wells and son, Cleo and Mrs. Lavonne Scott and children, of Mt.

(OFFICIAL PUBLICATION) REPORT OF CONDITION - At CLOSE OF BUSINESS JUNE 30, 1951 — eiderdown, with a deep-pile, dog- ! gy surface. • • » • THE DELIGHTED GAKMENT MANUFACTURERS predict that the new poodle coats are going to make mink old-fashioned, and that every smart woman will demand canine cloth instead of furs next fall. This is about the only bright spot for husbands and fathers to be found on the fashion horizon this year. For clothes in general and woolen ones in particular are going to cost more next fall, and the faitful checkbook .is going to grow progressively flatter. Despite little basic silhouette change, fall clothes have a completely different look because of the new fabrics and textures, the bulky look of coats, the fuzzy look of suits and dresses, the new casual "winter play" clothes introduced by designers such as Tina Leser and Claire McCardle, both of whom unveiled their fall lines during the first day of this week's showings. MISS MCCARDLE spotlighted her shaggy dog textures in every conceivable version, while Miss Leser propounded her theory that the era of stiffly formal dress is on the wane, and that instead of ball gowns, women went casual, colorful leisure clothes in winter as well as summer. Both of the girls have sound ideas, destined to sell like hot cakes, while pop sighs resignedly and pays the bills.
