By GAILE DUGAS NEA Woman's Editor NEW YORK (NEA)—The winter vacationer, buying clothes for two weeks spent under tropical skies, need not buy with just one purpose. By shopping, shrewdly, she can make the clothes she chooses fill out her wardrobe for spring and'sutnmer. More and more, fabrics are crossing boundary lines. Cotton is worn in winter, wool In summer. There's linen for winter wear as well. Fashions that formerly had a brief life span, therefore, now may be worn a part of the year—or more. On any plane or train, a travel suit like this one (left) is a joy to wear. With straight, loose-hanging coat, a waistcoat matehed to coat lining and a narrow skirt, this is a forward-looking fashion. The lines are so right that it can see wear for months to come. Another travel suit with a fu- ,ure (right) has the straight, loobe coat, too.

If you're cooking with your diet in mind or the special needs of other members of the family, don't point out that the food Is "good for you." Say. if anything, that the food Is "good." This helps everyone to approach 'the meal with greater relish/; , When you're out^with your women friends^ nren'E, yon bored when they talk about their diets when you're not on one? • Remember thai if you feel inclined to rid yoursel of anxieties about,; your weight am figure measurements, the person to [ talk to is your doctor. chambray, has an affiliated blouse and jacket-lining. Both suits represent the costume look that will b« important for spring and summer. ,. - It's good for you to talk about what's uppermost hi your mind, but If you're on a diet and that's your main, preoccupation, select carefully the person you dlscurfl it with. Another dieter or your mother— and, of course, oyur doctor— wiU be interested, but ho one else will. It's deadly boring to hear nbout what someone else can or cannot eat. Whether it's diabetes, indigestion. ulcers, obesity or anything else that is causing your food limitation. 1 -;. keep them to yourself unless asked. It's destructive to charm to let a man take you to an expensive restaurant and then refuse the house specialities because they're fattening or otherwise In conflict with your diet. Explain to him In advance that you'd rather go another time because you can't appreciate the food at present.
