With the change of lengths of skirts today I think Duane Dewel who writes the Hodge Podge Column knows something we don't. ... at any 'rate 20 years ago this column appeared in Sept. 2 issue of the Advance. There are some women in various parts of the country who are protesting the lengthening of skirts. But they will wear them! Shucks! The gals got one put over on them by the dress makers— or maybe it was papa who got the works! Because every woman wants new clothes the new styles are a godsend to to those gals who want new clothes. And pappy also gets a chance to pay. And the bird who benefits by all this hokus- pokus is the of new cl»Uu'.s Looks like a deep-dyed plot against pappy's pocketbook. Then after all the gals get the new long skirts—wham! Hhe manufacturers shorten them again! Seems strange not to see a sports page but twenty years ago today there was little or no mention of things going on in the world of sports, Guess things have changed as athletics play eueh a large port in our community as well as over the world.
