But the judge .is first again --to state firmly that she Isn't interested in the job. '· "This has been my: dream," said the 56-year-old woman who is the. only one of her sex ever elected to New York's highest judicial .post, . the State Supreme Court "I have no aspiration beyond.'this, I want that understood." The strikingly, handsome jurist also was the first woman elected to a New York municipal judgeship, and the. first to sit on the city court bench. Her current job, to which she was sworn Jan. 6,. is for a 14-year term at 'a yearly salary of $32,000, which is just $3,000 under .what associate justices of the U. S. Supreme Court earn. What is she like--this woman named "Birdie," cited by one high-ranking jurist for her "extraordinary accomplishments on'the bench," and holder of goodness knows how many · citations and awards from her own profession? WELL, SHE-wears pearls, Maurice Rentner suits, keeps jer deep auburn hair in a chic chignon, is-happy her judicial robes are enveloping enough to hide an occasional stocking run, and is convinced that eventually this nation will have a woman President. "I don't know if it will be in our time," said the lady judge.- ' "But women have shown they have outstanding abflity in a variety of jobs. Let's appraise our resources realistically and utilize' wom- anpower as well as manpower. . . ." Judge Amsterdam is single, has no heart interest, but believes "where there is love, it does not matter if a woman also works." ' She dines on sardine sand- "wiches 1 at her desk because there'hasn't been time to get away from it at lunch hour; she's a size 14 "but a 16, unless 1 watch it," and is a gardening hobbyist, taking over where the hired help leaves off at her summer home in Lido, on Long Island. . She is an amateur interior decorator who outlined during ' our interview the new color scheme for. her. chambers, currently done in office green." ·.- '·' -..'· ... . ··. · "Hate it," said the judge firmly.

NEW YPRK--A casual-war] designer's theory ihould/ do wonders for our morale if not our waistlines. She ; says we women should dress for flair-and to heck with our figures. "Most women are too conservative when it comes . to choosing casual clothes and sportswear. They think .high- fashion lines and colors are too extreme for-the average figure. If they have to'make-.a choice, they., should'forget their size and concentrate ' onf -.clothes with' flair," said Florence :Zinberg, designer for 'Macshore Classics, a leading v manufacturer of medium-priced. separates and c o o r d i n a t e s (Mouses, beach coats 'and two- jiece dresses).'

The collection is the first, of its kind to be available at 1 moderate prices in Brazil. Miss'Zinberg plans to design her, next collection from ideas gathered in Mexico. She believes color Is one o the most important features o this line because · "Braziliai women wear more colors thai we do. They wear casual style but are less conservative." The designer borrows.lots o hot" colors from South Amerca--bright turquoise, orange, old, and crimson, often. com- ined in prints or used solidly dth.white. ·. : · ' · ' ' * · ' · .BLOUSES COME witn ''moderately ; plunging" neckliiws-!- ' ' ' - "" " ' in be ow enough.-for- comfort warm weather.

She was christened Bella, but her parents dubbed her "Birdie" because of her baby chiirping sounds. The name .stuck. "My parents taught me to aim high," said the judge. "Mother always said, grand opera --or nothing." · One.of six children, Birdie 'Amsterdam .was graduated .from Hunter 'College High School with a state scholarship, studied at City College of New York, and got her LLB from New .York University. She was admitted to the bar in 1923. · But she never has moved from the neighborhood of her birth, although the area hardly is a fashionable part of town. She now lives with her youngest sisters family,. "I lik« my neighborhood, I know the people," she said. Since she became Supreme Court judge, the letters have poured in from all over the 'country, she said. One of her favorites was, from a young man in Hot 'Springs, S. D., who wrote, "I am just a coun- .try boy ... but 'I just want you to Toiow howl feeL ... I think there should-be'more women running things in this ole world. . . . " , . . . \ .
