Countess Boss Of Swedish Factory By GAY PAULEY UPl Women's Editor RIPSA, Sweden (UPI) —Ripsa is a small village set in the heart of Southeast Sweden's farming and forestry country. But its reputation is a large one among textile people in many parts of the world. At a factory in this out-of-the- way place, with a population of 250, are produced hand woven wools worked into casual clothes sold in Western Europe and across the U.S.A. Christian Dior was one of the first customers of the firm bossed by the Countess Ebba von Eckermann, a tall, handsome woman in her early 40's. The firm was organized officially in 1952, although the countess already had been busy with textiles. In an interview, she told how she started the production of at-home clothes, ski and after-ski pullovers, skirts and other casual wear—all designed by her and all dyed in the clear, bright colors she specifies. Reporters Visit She talked as she held an in^ formal fashion show on the lawn of the manor house of the family's 6,000 acre estate. The visitors were a group of reporters from The United States, Canada, Jap an, Brazil and several Western European countries. They were on a two weeks tour of Scandinavia as guests of Scandinavian Airlines System, and the tourist * associations of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. "This area always has done fine weaving," said the countess "My husband and I settled in Ripsa in 1945 and while he farmed and timbered the land his family has owned for five generations began with some of the local to make fabrics for GIFT IDEAS "If "Old World" ART in this covered jar from Italy.

"My mother is the Countess Marg von Schwerin, a couturier in Stockholm. She's been in business since 1927. The crown princ ess of Norway was one of her early customers. "I was supplying mother with yard goods for suits, but afraid I'd drown her with fabrics, began to make some lap robes. I'd already been doing a few as gifts for friends." In 1950, her husband went to the United States on a reforestation study and she went along with a group of the robes to show stores. She returned to the village, which is about 60 miles southeast of Stockholm, with a batch of orders. Turning to clothes was the next logical step and now the countess also is making scatter rugs. Her husband explained that "nothmg goes to waste. We make the carpels from scraps. The buyers snap up the rugs for their homes, not for their stores." The countess employs 50 people — 40 who work in a tidy factory on the estate. Some of the young women who are not from the village live on one floor of the spacious white concrete manor house. One section of the house also has been turned into a styling workroom. As the business has grown, so has the demand from local residents for her to open a weaving school. She's already in the second year of an experiment en rolling teen-age girls in sort of a charm school. They learn cooking, correct dress, manners and such. "The weaving school will have to wait until I can find the space, she said. "And, the time." Designer's Long Skhf Bid Gets Cold Reception We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT, A woman whose hair is starting to turn gray can't afford NOT to dye it, says a representative of one of the country's leading hair dye manufacturers. She claims a woman owes it to her husband to keep the silver threads from among the gold because, if husband and wife are about the same age the man caji say to himself, "Well, my wife's as old as I am and she looks good ... I must look good, too." Though her words are an out- and-out sales pitch, there's a lot of truth to them. A man doesn't have to worry too much about a receding hair- ne and a widenmg girth if his wife works hard at the job of staying young, keeping her girlish figure and refusing to settle for gray hair. If, by making a supreme effort, a woman can manage to look 10 years younger than she is, her husband can assume one of two things: 1—His friends will figure he is as young as his wife looks — and only looks older because of the heavy responsibilities he carries. 2—He can figure that if some people DO thmk he is older than his wife, they'll thmk he is to be envied for having a wife who is 10 years younger than he is. So, either way he's the wmner. But it's entirely different with women. No woman figures she is anything but a loser if her husband, who is the same age as she is, somehow manages to carry the years so much better that he is the one who looks 10 years younger. So that's another good reason for a wife's doing her utmost to By ALINE MOSBY United Press Internationa PARIS (UPI) — Designer Jacqes Heim's long-skirt bomb- shee is a dud, American buyers said today. After Heim opened the fall-winter Paris fashion shows Monday, a cross-section of merchandising experts from New York indicated almost complete indifference. The e.\perts conceded that the new heavy tweed walking suits and knee-high boots that are blossoming all over Paris could stand a skirt about an inch or two lower than usual. But otherwise, the buyers said, they have no intention of stocking department stores this fail with longer skirts that will force a worldwide wardrobe overhaul. "I didn't like the long Heim skirts. Women never will wear them, not this year, anyway," commented one New York fabric manufacturer at a party given by the Dior Salon for designer Marc Bohan Monday night. The head of a leading New York department store, however, confessed that the real reason the long skirts will not be adopted by stores is not consideration of women, but the fact that Heim is "not a pacesetter." "Balenciaga, Givenchy, Dior and, to some extent. Yves St. Laurent set the style" he ex plained. In other words, women's legs are not out of the woods until the Givenchy-Balenciaga-D i o r votes are in within the week. But if Heim's long sWrts are thumbed down, the "covered leg" and tweedy look appeared here to stay, possibly because Balenciaga introduced it with knee-h i g h suede boots last Printer. Heim, Jacques Esterel and Louis Feraud all showed knee-high leg coverings Monday. Heim's were in ocelot, zdjra and other furs or fake furs, and flat heeled. He showed them with mid-calf narrow tweed skirts topped with waist-length loose jackets. His full-skirted and belted tweed coats with fur-edged hoods were accompanied by ankle-high bootlets in matching tweeds. Feraud's eye-opener was a red and blue tweed coat with a col lar and half-lining of fuzzy Mon golian goat fur dyed red. The mannequin wore shiny red knee- high boots. Newly Married Samuel Isabells Feted At Party Newly married Sharon Wiese and Samuel Isabell were feted on the return from their honeymoon July 14 at a reception for 35 relatives and close friends at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jerald H. Wiese, 154 MuUvihiU street. Dee De Mirjyn, a childhood friend of Sharon's, opened the gifts and cut the tiered bride's cake. Mrs. Jean Wiese, aunt of the bride, served the punch and Mrs, Sonja D'AlIesandro, Sharon's cousin, registered the gifts and circulated the guest book. Attending from out of town were Mr. and Mrs. Donald Wiese and Sydney of Pacoima, Mr. and Mrs. Ralf* Wiese of Inglewood. Mr. and BIrs.

Chris Morgens Here For Visit Christopher Warren Blorgens, son of Lt. Col. and Mrs. Warren Morgens, 424 West Olive avenue, is spending his first summer here since 1958 and is enjoying renewing his acquaintance with many of his former classmates at Smiley School.
