Texas lias both for summer '68. At least that's what everybody says. For two days now, nearly 200 fashion editors from papers throughout the United States and Canada have been seeing Texas fashions parade down runways in San Antonio. They're HemisFair-inspired, HemisFair geared, HemisFair right, and Hemis Fair ready. But will the fair itself be ready? From the looks of it today, one can't help wondering. "Don't worry. These things have a way of opening. We'll be on time," everyone assures you as you wander around the site wearing a hard orange hat (Manditory for anyone in the area) dodging bulldozers, paving trucks, tree planting crews, painters, and workmen of all sorts. Or ride the sky- ride from one end of the park to the other. The skyride is already in operation and nice young men are practicing getting visitors like us in and out of the cars. "Are you sure it's really ready. That it really works," someone asked as we climbed aboard. "Sure. I take the first ride every day," said Jay Cantu. "I check all the cables and make sure everything's perfect every day." HemisFair, the first world's fair ever held in the Southwest, expects more than seven million visitors between its April 6 opening and its October 6 close. And there are all sorts of ways to get around the 92-acre site in the heart of downtown San Antonio, just blocks from the Alamo. In addition to the skyride, there is a bright orange and yellow elevated mini rail, which already weaves around the park. There will be ele- vated walkways -- people expressways -- .to enable fairgoers to get from place to place, quickly. Wajcr taxis will carry visitors to the fair on an extension of the San Antonio River. And cruise boats will carry them leisurely around the fair on a mile-long waterway. All right. So we're convinced they'll get the fair going on time, and that it will be easy to get around when we get there. What shall we wear? For the very young, Texas Fashion Creators suggest the body scooter. This is a very short culotte one-piece step-in garment, usually zipping up the front or back. Body scooters come in the gayest imaginable colors, with detailing ranging from lace and ruffles to saddle stitching, tabs, and pockets. Then there are the two- piece types. Short short dresses or shiris worn with matching shorts, bloomers, ruffled panties, or some sort of coordinated undies. If sportswear is not for you, then you'll probably come m ruffled blouses, wide crushed leather belts, and full skirts. Such is really the '68 fashion news. Those belts are going to be bothersome if you spend nxich time eating at Hemis- Fair. The food we've sampled so far is super. Lunch yesterday in the River Room of the Convention Center was served by Frontier Enterprises which will have the restaurants in the HemisFair Tower. Cuisine will be typically American, long on beef, and with a seafood and a fowl daily. For dessert, the two specialities of the House are Texas Pecan Tart -- a German chocolate pecan filling in n tender pastry, topped with whipped cream -- and a praline topped with softened ice cream, then whipped cream, then semisweet chocolate bils, and capped with a chocolate replica of the tower. Try those on with your new wide crushed leather belt. SWITZER'S Latin Flavor Donovan-Galvani captures the Latin American f l a vor of HemisFair '68 in this dramatic interpretation of a matador's costume. Tiny lace ruffles stand out on full sleeves, and the vest and pant are done in cotton brocade. Play Clothes Ball fringe and coin dots are Tedda Togs' play story for summer. The cotton poplin blouse features a cutaway back. New 3 PC. tttardrobcr... Matching Jacket, Pant, Skirt Regularly $29.98... Now $23 Complete Just arrived!
