4 Palm Beach Post, Friday, Nov. 15, 19fi8 ..;t Only You Make Things Happen Children's Letters To God w 1 i 1 X love yaw yepy bore to me and I finally gave up in despair. I'm through with my earning davs, I thought. "Later, a little restaurant where I ate with a group of girl friends every week needed a cashier. They noticed I was the one who had to figure out what each person owed. I was always quick at figures, but never thought of myself as a potential bookkeeper or cashier, until they offered me the job. It's now a year and so far I haven't short-ehanged them or the customers." Or you might look into VISTA or the Foster Grandparent Program, both of which pay-modest sums to their workers. '0 By HENRIETTE KISH NEW YORK (WNSi "I'm waiting for something to happen," a woman told a friend. "When summer's over, things have to change. I can't look forward to the same dull, aimless fall and winter I've lived t hroug h t hese past few years. " Her friend wished her luck, and added, a little cynically, "Something will happen when you make it happen. That's the way It was for me. That's the way it is for most of us older women. Who's going to come and pull us out of our cozv little corners?" Maybe your cozy corner suits you. But if it doesn't, some sort of job may be the means of moving you out into the world of action. It can be paid, it can he volunteer. It can be full-time or part-time. The important thing is that it should be within your skills and strengths, and interesting enough to make you want to stay with it. One woman wrote about her experience. Widowed and childless, she took a refresher course and went hack to work, at 55, as a secretary. She had never liked shorthand and typing, but in younger days had been able to adapt herself.

' ' i hibrics Little Misses Trend-Setters For Mommies By PATRICIA MCCORMACK NEW YORK (I'PI I Little girls, take a bow. Many of the nation's trendsetting designers have peeked into your closet (or inspiration when putting together spring and summer clothes for big ladies such as your mommies. They liked the jumpers and white blouses and school ties. They flipped over the princess dresses and little smocked numbers. Their eyes sparkled over ruffles on other dresses. While they were at it, they looked at what some little girls wear in the comics. What they adored was that white collared and cuffed one that Orphan Annie has been wearing for decades. All these things they adapted for big ladies. They made the dresses larger, used very expensive fabrics and put price tags on big enough to pay for a little backvard merry-go-round. The designers also gave your little brother's closet the once over. They liked his school blazers. Back at their drawing boards they worked out blazer shapes suitable for women. Designers who have done some of these things include Larry Aldrich, Chester Weinberg, Oscar de la Kenta, Donald Brooks, Pauline Trigere, Mollie Parnis. Beene's jumpers had the biggest ties. They were worn with long white sleeved shirts, a la parochial school uniforms. They stal led small at the neck and widened out nearly to bib size at the end near the waistline. The designers initials. were embroidered on I hem. Beene frequently showed these junipers over bell-bottom trousers. He called the pants "Beene bottoms." Since first claim on bell bottoms belongs to the Navy, I wonder if he is going to "Beene" some other Navy things coming out with "Navy Beene soup." Some of the childlike influences were not as innocent at the back as thev seemed at the front. A "saintly front and sinning back" dress in the Beene collection had a serene and very modest choir boy front, complete with collar. When the model wearing this turned to show the aft part, her back except for the back rim of the collar was bare all the way to the waist. And speaking of bare, Hudi (iernivich, award-winning California designer who invented the topless bathing suit, proved he's still on that track. In a collection of togs lor Harmon Knitwear, the designer had a number of ghillie tie touches. In these, he used narrow strips of fabric to lace over fronts or backs of tunic dresses with daringly deep cutouts. Back slashes, six inches wide, rode down to buttocks on some of the dresses. Front openings showed the navel and were so widely cut that a lot of bosom showed. Matching ghillie cutout treatments were on boots, calf-high. (Jhillie-laced cutouts under arms to hips were featured on other dresses. He used the same ghillie tie treatment at top of briefest bikini bottoms to swim suits with cut out tops. His one-piece swim suits, almost tank style, had the lattice cutouts from waistline to low on the pelvis. Internationale imuHiiwiii'ic i! y rr-'.l?ilj Kmj Feiturej Syndicate. Inc.. Ib8.
