Golden theater^ It was written by Rose FranVten, absent from the Broadway .play shops since 1941 when her-"Claudia" "started out to become a national theatrical en- thuslasfao. Two Pranken flops between "Claudia" and "Soldier's Wife" indicated the authoress had been trying too intensely to. write socially conscious drama. Certainly " "Soldier's .Wife", which , is. cut from the same brightly witty and warm dramaturgical plaid as "Olaudia" seta more neatly on Miss Franken's shoulders.. , "Soldier's Wife" is not the wartime play tne - title might imply. It is concerned primarily with the continuing relationship of a young couple after the husband returns from war to find that his once-re- sourceless wife has taken on all the household problems, has had a baby and has, through necessity and considerable heartbreak, made herself into a nearly. self-sufficient human. Added complications creep in when-the wife discovers she inadvertently has .written *, best seller In the letters to her husband while he is in the South Pacific. Not for a second does anyone believe things won't come out all right for the youngsters Involved. The major complaint -. might be that the p)ay as a whole contains the slick-paper patness of M'ss Prank- en's magazine stories. others nay carp about its failure to probe Into general problems . of returned soldier: husbands; Just the same Miss Pranken has taken a bright ^n to a particular problem and has njected good humor, sparkling dla- ogue which only Infrequently sags, workmanlike cast all by herself.

New York fashion and the subject of creative .style now faces he crucial test of competition with Jie old maestro—the Paris influ- nce. Reporter*, therefore, flocked to the showing; of the Malnbocher ollectlon of fail and winter clothes with eager anticipation of »eelng n extravagant and dramatic pre- ivar expression of the mode. Main- boeher proved--to be in complete sympathy with the immediate needs of American women and played down extravagance to emphasize simplicity and beauty of line. Infantry Blue It ' was a touching gesture of thought on the part of this designer of Parisian fame to include a new color in deference to the United Statea Infantry. "Ladles, I give you Infantry Blue," he said,'Introducing * subtle shade of gray blue that will doubtless set & color preference this coming season. While the present dress. collections are full of blue, there 'is a definite feeling that infantry Blue will gftm ni Rny mends for sentimental reasons alone. General wear street and sports clothes featuring Infantry Blue are already in the making Infantry Blue Celanese Jersey blouses and sports dresses will be amonb the first to 1 reach the stores for fall and southern wear. Fashion In Pastels One of th* nicest exhibitions to appear here in a long time Is devoted .to pastel portraits of children Executed by th« talented portrait artist, Zoe Shippen, these young 'aces, many of them from famous famtlles, have a depth of expression that almost talks, and a lum- nous quality that leaves you breathless, Zoe Shlppen works with some three hundred IVench. pastels n a graduation of tones hardly perceptible to the untrained eye. Miss Shippeu's next exhibition will be held In the Mayflower Hotel Washington, D. o., November 1, a and 3. It will present children of ilplomatlc families of foreign na;ions, including Chinese, Belgium, Iceland, Thailand, and others. Fan to Make a H*t Helene. Darnell, top ranking designer of exclusive millinery, has lust written a book called "It's Pun « Make a Hat" with illustrations by lerself. The new book is creating quite a sensation, not only because t is probably the most complete and explicit book of its kind, but because It's straight" forward advice to the beginner, Its generous reveal- ment of professional tricks, and Its ascinaUng sketches, make it fun to read even If you don't make hats. Tricks of trimming', how to make * bow, how to sew on e. bird, and even patterns for basic hats are included In this book with directions or cutting.
