FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NIN» HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Do U. S.Women Look Like A Standard Row of Acorns? NEW YORK—W)—Do American women today really look like a row of acorns? This question has the clothing industry In a mild tizzy. The accusation that women, by aping the body lines of movie stars, had become as much alike as so ^«ny unborn oak trees In their 4v-shells was made by Raymond Marlnelll, a well-known designer. Marinelli said this sameness resulted because too many women had adopted "the universal, uplift bust- line," whether or notjt corresponded with their own contours. But his chhrge drew an immediate and heated denial from a lady clothing designer—Cynthia. "The upstanding bustllnc has already gone out," said Cynthia firmly. "And the acorn look Is a thin; of the past. It may have been popular a few years ago. But It has been replaced bv the natural look. Stress Body Llnei "The trend now Is for each woman to stress her own natural body line—to wear clothing with a natural shoulder, natural hip and natura bustllne. And with no exaggeration anvwhere." Cynthia—lady designers, like male hairdressers, tend to regard las names as superfluous — also liad nothing but scorn for Marinclli's contention that women would he more beautiful If they threw away their bras and girdles. "I Cftn't Imagine a girl feeliii] good without a bra^and girdle—o: looking gootl either," she said. "Shi would feel uncomfortable and ill a ease—definitely not well groomed. "A man wants a woman Individ ually attractive to him. He doesn' want others to stare at her because she's Improperly dressed." jK* 1,000 Times More ^TJut Cynthia, how about Mr. Mar Inellt's statement that women woul he 1,000 more feminine wlthou these undergown fashion aids? "Don't you believe It!" said Cyn thia, a tall, slender blonde with blue eyes. "A girl Just doesn't look attrac- ive if she doesn't wear her foun- atlon garments. She look untidy— definitely. And If she is on the leavy side, she wobbles when she walks." Cynthia gave a blonde shudder of distaste as she added: "She is like a bowl full of qunking elly. A girl should wear .her girdle and bra everywhere except at the beach or in her own boudoir. "I'd certainly hate to see a girl vear a fashionable strapless even- ng gown with nothing underneath. She'd be quite sloppy. And men wouldn't like her. Men arc gelling more and mnrc and more conscious of feminine styles—there have been •inch' drastic changes. And they want their eirls to be well groomed." Sheer Nonsense Cynthia said It was nonsense, too. to think thai foundation garments had compressed all women Into a single standard shape. "Your modern day bras and girdles don't change the figure to that extent," she said sternly. "They Just control it. And the-- come In hundreds of different styles, shape and sizes." And Ihen Cynthia gave he clincher: "Statistics show that 80 per cent of girls 15 years of age or over do wear foundation garments. That's four out of five." I guess It must have been one of the fifth girls, however, who wrote me this anonymous letter: "More power to this Marinelli guy! Girdles? I detest 'em! So carry on the crusade." Not me. I don't want to get caught In the crossfire between Cynthia and Marinelli. It's all right with me if the girls wear chain mail, so long as it keeps them young and haopy. But do they look like (i row of acorns? Well, when they wear those 'NEW AVENUES'—Chairman Millard p.
