And a man may find a certain fault fn a mm her of. women without proving hat he'll find that fault in every woman. That is why the most Infuriating ;h!ng a man can say to a woman Alien he Is criticizing her is "That's list like a woman!" It denies her any individuality vl all. It Implies she is not an Individual, Just a woman, and that any other woman In the world would lave done exactly what she did. So heaven help the gfrl who marries a man who knows all about women, lumping them together and attributing certain faults nnd vlr- .ues ot them simply because they are women. A woman can't hope for understanding from such a man, or respect, or consideration, or even for real love. Because we love a person for the things that make him different from every other individual In the world. And the man who thinkcs he knows all about women wouldn't be capable of seeing all the mnny ways hi which one woman is different from all the other women he has known. _uncheon Given For Club, Guests Members find guests of the Friday Club were entertained yester- dny 'With a luncheon luul bridge by Mrs. FfliTls McCnlla and Mrs. Rob Lortan, at the Logan home.

French Designer Shows Full Skirts In-Season of 'Straight and Narrow' r By DOROTHY ROE NEW YORK W — Just to bfi different, Jacques Fath. the Paris designer who presented today an American collection for the house of Joseph Halpert, shows a series of voluminously full skirts in a season of the filraight-nnd-tmrrow silhouette. This is the sort of pixie humor that makes the French the unpredictable artists of fashion that they are. True, Path's bouffant skirts are mostly for after-five wear, but they arc exaggerated enough to be sensational in a_ season of slim lines, One of the most spectacular is a taffeta dinner dress whose nnkle- length skirt has enough yardage to make a good-sized circus tent.. Another, designed ..for) cocktail or Informal 'dinner wear, h'ns; a skirl' whose sides r may be lifted to shoulder -height without disturbing the pieated fullness at front and back. Perhaps the astute Frenchman thinks there, may be a number oE women who still may wish to hide their hips beneath the bouffant skirt, Philip Mangone, the master tailor, clings to the narrow silhouette in his shaped collection of and finished beautiful}/ suits and coats. He shows some handsome silk tweeds for spring, presents box and semi-fitted jackets in a series of new-looking suits, and uses the .bold plaids which have become almost a signature in some distinguished casual coats, narrower this year than formerly. Mangone does tricks with pockets, often using four of them on tubular wrap coats, or -putting, small pockets on top of big ones. He likes light-weight tweeds and chiffon poodle cloths for coats, s moo t h wool baratheas and worsteds for suits.
