BY EPSIE KINARD NEA Faihion Editor IVfEW YORK—(NEA) — Pedal pushers are the recipients of two fashion honors this spring. They launch a new fabric which chalks up another triumph for versatile rayon. They make a style hit which is as well liked in Paris as in the U. S. A. The del Mar-designed pedal pusher fashion (rifhl) is the American sportswear choice of Leslie Caron, a sailing enthusiast and the dancing sensation of Paris. She is shown sailing down Ih'e Seine wearing red cotton poplin pedal pushers wilh a boned camisole top and a matching bolero of black birdseye pique. The pin-checked pedal pusher suit (above) on the American gal who putters with paint owes the crisply tailored look of both trousers and jacket to a new crease- resistant crimple rayon. This takes a smooth finish, tailors like quality worsted, is budget-priced, feels cool, and is able to stay crisp in wilting heat.

It seems that in her crowd the parents make no bones about the fact that when they've escaped from their own children for the evening they don't want to be bothered with anyone elses. So if the Smiths hire a sitter and come over for dinner or an evening of cards, Mrs. B., the hostess, has to get her children fed and out of the way by the time the guests arrive. "I do let them come into the liv- without making a nuisance of themselves, they can be allowed to stay up until their regular bedtime. But the parents who intend to take that stand will have to see to it that their children don't interrupt adult conversation rudely and demand the center of the stage. We laugh at the old saying. "Children should be seen and not heard." But at least children were seen in Grandma's time. Now, because whenever they're seen they are apt to be heard too much, weve compromised by not even letting them be seen. So if we leach our children Rood manners and iippress on them that if they want to stay around when we have guests they'll have to he on their good behavior—there's no reason why we cant have them around. After all, it's pretty foolish to ban our children when they are nt an ape to be fascinated by our friends, nd then wonder why, whim they reach adolescence, they are so unhappy and awkward in a gathering of adults.
