A second interpretation of the "coif," upper right is contrived from a lace straw, and here the backward-peaked silhouette can be seen. The "coif" is important because it strongly advances the trend of flatter-topped, non-pompadour hats and hair-dos.

These barriers now provide a bottleneck that is interfering with the war effort, by golly. And look what has happened. This piece that started out to be just another fish story has developed into something of political and economic and .social significance. British babies can't get enough vitamins because dried egg shipments are down because there aren't enough vitamins in tne hen food because production of fish meal is limited because New Jersey has a law that won't let Delaware fishermen catch menhaden off Sandy Hook and Raritan. Congressman Philip A. Traynor of Wilmington, Del., introduced a bill to provide wartime suspension of state laws restricting menhaden fishing, but politicians from some of the other states ganged up on it, called it unconstitutional, and have apparently killed it deader than a herring. And that's -the end of today's fish story.
