MRS. BYRON HARMS (Bcller Photo) Thompson-Harms Vows Exchanged Girls Are Back In Style By BOB THOMAS AP'Movie-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Dinah Shore has returned from the Paris fashion salons with good news: Girls are back in style. No gal in television dresses finah than Miss Shore, and she works at it. She returned from Paris last week after a frantic 10 days of viewing all the new styles. Her haul: A dozen stunners from the needles of Balmain and Nina Ricci. "The trend in Paris?" she said. "It seems to be toward a more feminine look, thank heaven. I mean now girls look like girls. There seems to be less designing for the tall, emaciated fashion- model type and more for the rest of us, the ones who are all girl. "The look is softer, rounder. The clothes show a waist, which most women have. There is no attempt to hide the bust line, which most women have. And the dresses show hips, which—(sigh) —most women have. "Hair styles are softer and lower, necklines are more feminine, and heels are coming down. Good thing; those extra-high heels looked ridiculous and uncomfortable. Oh yes—Skirts are higher."

I'm nutty about slacks and .^eaters, and that's what I wear most. People seldom go out any more in Hollywood. We eat at home ; most of the time. If we go to | friends' houses, I usually wear | slacks and sweaters." > But her TV life—that's another i matter. "I think I get more fan ! mail about the clothes than about i anv other matter," she said. "I ' " Y v 11 i gown on the old 15-minute show. i I got 10,000 letters about that one." ! Now the gowns get top consider- i ation in her program planning. i "And if they don't like the dress watch out! Once I wore a red leotard—pants, actually—that somehow photographed flesh color. Boy, did I hear from that one!" " Lest you worn' about Dinah's closets bulging with costly gowns, I might explain that the designers lend their original models for her to use on the show.

Kurnitz is convinced this habit of rising early to face his typewriter is the chief reason he was unable to remain a failure. "I've known many extremely .gifted men who became defeated in life simply because they lost ,', besides golf, is gambling— and I'm lousy at both."

"On the other hand, I once j spent eight months on a play, j then tore it up and had to start j all over again. "I was never able to match Noel Coward.
