Gals who didn't nibble on dainty salads all summer wiil be happiest in the oval shape, wliich combines front shaping with a rounded back. The slimmer chick will show off in the slim coat. It isn't plastered to the body but it stays close. But the big news this season is more the imc details than the silhouettes. This was apparent from the collections shown in New York during the past week. Raglan and kimono sleeves are [important in most of the coat collections. Double-breasted closings, buttons galore and lots of pockets add fashion interest. High, flared collars turn up on several of the "big" coats. Belts are featured in many cases, but seldom at the natural waistline. Some are placed high, but the newest encircle the hips. Frabrics include whipcord, brushed mohair, lovely wool tweeds and soft fleece. Many are thick and textured, warm, but light in weight. Purpie—from plum to violet — makes color news, especially in handsome wool tweeds. Camel and myriad blues are close contenders for top honors, with a sprinkling of scarlet and green to brighten the autumn scene. The elegant black coat is still an integral part of a wellrounded wardrobe, but in daytime coats, it seems that black will play a bit part compared to the starring role of color. Kookie gone-but not forgotten by Mr. Bpes By VERNON SCOTT UPl Hollywood Corrtspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - Edd Byrnes isn't Kookie anymore. Gone is the ever-present comb, the greasy kid stuff, and his role in "77 Sunset Strip." After five years of playing parking lot attendant and junior grade detective in the series young Byrnes finds himself a free lance actor. His is a case study in what a video series can do for an unknown. In a matter of weeks Edd rose from an absolute obscurity to teen-age idol, making "Kookie" a household word. And unlike many a graceless actor, Byrnes doesn't knock his captivity in a series. "Kookie will always be a good friend of mine," he says. "He did a lot for me. I was nobody before I played that role. My only jobs were bit parts in television. But once '77 Sunset Strip' went on the air it took only eight weeks for me to become nationally prominent." Edd's immediate problem is how to avoid returning to obscurity. Fortunately, he no sooner bought up the remaining 10 months of his Warner Bros, contract than he was hailed for a meaty role in "The Dubious Patriots" which rolls in Yugoslavia this summer. Already Edd is discovering certain disadvantages in leaving the protective bosom of a major studio. He now has to pay his own press agent to prevent his name from fading in the public eye. Also there's always his personal image" to worry about. During his years at the studio the publicity department did its best to convmce the world that Edd was every bit as hip and jazzy as the role he played, you dig man? But in truth Edd is a square. Kookie's dialogue was as mystifying to him as it was unintelligible to viewers. "No more hipster image for me," Byrnes said during a noonday snack in the Brown Derby. "From now on I'd like to establish myself as a motion picture star. "I'd welcome some television guest appearances, too. And if the part is good enough I would even piay a parking lot attendant again." Edd, who looks many years younger than his age (29), has a perpetual air of parking lot fresh ness about him. He's a convincing car parfcer, make no mistake about it. In his first big independent movie Byrnes will be limited to parking tanks and jeeps, inasmuch as he is playing a soldier. If Edd appears to be smiling a good deal in the picture it might be that he is contemplating the re-issues of "77 Sunset Strip.' When the reruns hit the air Kookie will earn him another $100,000, which isn't bad parking in anybody's lot. We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT, Even a youngster can have the knack of putting herself into another's place, and will often use this gift to deflate or embarrass a friend. If her parents don't encourage her to use this uncanny ability to help rather than to hurt, that child will grow up to be a very unpleasant woman. There's at least one such woman in almost every group — the woman who spoils small triumphs for others, who reminds them of things they would like to forget, who has a habit of introducing a pamful conversation with the most tanocent-sounding question. The sad thing is that such women have the same knack for knowing what others are feeling as do the most charming and agreeable of women. But they use it in the wrong way. Knowing how others feel, they use the knowledge to hurt, to take the other person down a notch or two. A charming woman uses her knowledge of other people to build them up, to say just the right word, to make an accomplishment seem even more important than it is, to smooth troubled The overblouse is a favorite style for autumn daytime dresses.

NEW YORK — (KEA) — When' the hemlines don't change and the waistline wanders up and down, there's not much news in a silhouette. That's the status of daytime dresses for autumn. But there is evidence of imaginative use of color and fabrics in the new fall lines. Handsome detail has been achieved by combining smooth and textured fabrics, such as satin and tweed, and colors are generously mixed. Greens with blues and deep reds with pinks are handsomely combined in tweeds, plaids, checks and stripes, and somber woodsy tones in lacey wool ateiost give off the scent of autumn. Camel and navy are a new color team that promises to be a favorite, and beautiful, indeed, are the printed florals and paisley wools. The costume will be more popular than ever this season. Many daytime dresses have short contrasting jackets, both plain and fur-trimmed. In two-piece dresses, the banded overblouse makes news in lightweight souffle wool. Sleeves are an important part of all fashions for fall and many [of the dresses have raglan sleeves. I reflecting the casual look of the (season. Skirts are easy and mobile, with pleats and side button- ings. The jumper dress and the shift have retained their good standing jand turn up in every fabric from i suede to crepe. The coat dress, the sweater dress and the full-length shirt bow is in the sportive mood in just the right weight for a brisk walk on the first, crisp delightful autumn afternoon. There's so much variety in day- ttime dresses that everyone should find shopping a joy. NEW YORK (NEA) - The evening hours will usher in the most exciting change in fashion this fall. Long gowns will sweep onto the scene with an elegance not seen since the '30s. The bouffant skirt is gone. The new gowns have narrow skirts and if they do have some fullness, it falls gantly. Most are cut on the bias for beautiful movement. Color runs rampant through the collections. Lush velvet is seen in rich, vibrant ruby, turquoise, plum, green and frosted pastels. Gold brocades gleam and metal- lies highlight black, brown and deep reds. Jeweled embroidery twinkles on shoulder straps, necklines, sleeves and hemlines. Jet and ice diamente cobweb designs and mobile teardrop or chandelier motifs will sparkle in soft candlelight. There's a neat trick in store, loo, for the gal who wants her money's worth out of her investment in a floor-lenght gown. ,Long funic tops worn over nar- irow, long skirts for evening can be worn without the skirt as a cocktail dress for late afternoon. In the superb elegance of the new evening dress, you will feel as beautiful as you look.

The group spent the day in the area and enjoyed a covered dish luncheon at noon. The club is in recess during July and August and this was a traditional social occasion with no business session. A visit in San Bemardmo of the department president of the California Auxiliary is on the calendar for August 1 with members of the Redlands auxiliary invited. wafers and take the sting out of someone else's careless remark. The ability to put yourself in another's place can be a great gift if coupled with kindness. When used to deflate and puncture the ego of others, to probe the most sensitive spots in their natures, it is a real curse. That's a lesson mothers can teach their daughters — not by lectures, but by example. TIZZY By Kate Osann K-colt ^stSmf (rigt) arrin a dominant mellow red.

RECORD REVIEW NEW YORK (UPI) — Some of the best music of the last 10 years has been that written for the movies and "How The West Was Won" is a standout among them. The music from the latest Cin erama epic was scored by Alfred Newman around old tunes of the Civil War and early western history as well as folk tunes. Among the songs to be heard are "greensleeves," "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and "Wait for the Wagon." Most outstanding recording, of "How the West Was Won" is the original sound track (M-G-M- 1E3). It includes three numbers sung by Debbie Reynolds plus several excellent chcral offerings. The Hollywood Sound Stage Orchestra edso has recorded the music from "How the West Was Won" (United Artists 6283). This orchestra uses arrangements by Alfred Newman, Ken Darby and Robert E. Dolan. Both of these recordings will make excellent additions to collectors who specialize in music as well as those who gather Americana. Middle-aged sentimentalists who remember the early recordings of Jack Hylton and his Orchestra will be happy to hear they have been put on an LP as "England's Favorite of the 1930's" (Capitol TAD 10323). Pat O'Malley. Sara Browne and the Hylton Trio are featured on such numbers as "Body and Soul," "She Shall Have Music" and "1 Believe in Miracles." For Flamenco Fans — "Feista Flamenca" by Mario Escudero (ABC Paramount ABC 248) is vibrant and alive. Good sound reproduction gives starting realism to Escudero's brilliant work on the guitar and Anita Ramos' band- ling of the castanets and her handclapping and finger snapping.

I wish Td grown up before cooking got so franticl" A TRIBUTE To FRIENDSHIPl Through the years, as we learn to evaluate people and personalities, we find that enduring friendships are one of life's precious jewels. What is more (X)mforting than a treasured visit with someone to whom you can be just your natural self! Do you know what the definition of a friend is? It is a person who knows all your faults but stm likes you, in spite of them. None of us is free from faults. That is only human. So we gravitate to those who like us and who, in turn, we think rather special. Let's cherish our friendships and make the most of them . . . lest auld acquaintance be forgot! f.
