TEETH DENTUREZE NEW AIRLINERS—Three of the world's largest airlines, American, Pan-Ariiericnn-Grace and United, have placed orders for ill) new high- speed airliners with Douglas Aircraft Company. By MAE SAfNDERS Hardly hail the dust of battle in Paris settled and victory won by the Allies when a new battle began. I'nited States stylists, who have had the fashion market entirely as their own field, eagerly scanned news from Paris about what was "being worn." They are now resenting the fact that Paris women, despite their hardships, are among the most smartly clad, even if poverty-strlrcken. One fashion analyst, referring to prewar days, immediately deflates the Parisian fashion balloon with these observations: "One report from Paris itself declares categorically that Paris is still the style center of the world and cites women in full-skirted tight bodiced printed dresr with brightly-colored shoes as proof. The result Is confusing to those who did not know Paris in prewar days. In that time, the French were, the first to admit that, on the average, American women had morn and prettier clothes than French women. Where thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, aspire to be fashionable In this country, the French ranked elegance above fashion and classed it as one of the arts. The rank and file of Frenchwomen made no more attempt to be elegant than they did to be great painters or musicials or writers." All of this is probably true, but American women will be the first to admit as a whole that they have missed the Parisian fashions and the "elegant" impulse in design and have resented being "on the average" the best dressed women in the world. No woman thinks it is style- to be average. While hundreds of thousands of American women "aspire" to lie fashionable, each one as an individual also aspires to be "elegant," but during the time that Paris inspiration was closed off, for the most part the mass of women found little to inspire them to be individualists in costume. Of course there are always a few of American women "elegantees" Your Casual Dress... for Color Under Your Coat Highlight your furs or your casual coal with vibrant color beneath.

Fashions Main Floor I who do and cun afford to buy the original" model, but the greater number of women in both the middle and higher income brackets go into the same shops to the same fashion floors and buy ;i dress that is the "love of her life." Then she walks out on the street and meets Mrs. Smith coming from nnother store with the same dress. Each smiles wryly and chalks it up to American mass • production. Men can walk into a store and buy five suits all alike and wear them with deep appreciation and satisfaction and this insensitive male creature, cares not at all that Bill Brown buys five suits just like his own. In fact, he's apt to tell Bill Smith where to go to get a suit like his. But a woman, having found a special buy and a special .style, will hoard her great secret until she is trailed by friends to her fashion lair. American women certainly were hopeful that American designers challenged by the war would turn out fashions that would forever hold their affection. But such has not been the case. American de,signers will declare thnt shortages ''of materials handicapped their genius. American women patriotically consented to be crammed into skimpy garments cut without much imagination and with no decorative detail for the most part. But every woman bringing one of this war's uniforms home, eyeing it. managed a little trick or two with it by her own choice of accessories, until it took on a little distinction. She probably, nine times out of ten. could have given its maker a hint or two on how to mike it individualistic. Women concentrated on individualistic hair-do, make-up, and hats, because the American milliners are more gifted in styling. So if Parisian women, during their fashion hard times, have managed to be colorful and individualistic in their dress, American women can appreciate their fluir for wearing clothes and making them look ultra. American women have had to work hard themselves to substitute for what Paris originally handed to them and can appreciate fully what Paris women have achieved. But the battle is on. Parisian hats are now being accused of being large and lumpy by American designers, and the French dress being ultra fashionable for only the very few. American women sigh to he included in that very few. Maybe this battle will be known as the "battle of the chapeuux" or the "battle of the robes." American women will be true allies of the French women all out for the tri-colors and the slogan, "feminine, individual and elegant." FRENCH AMBASSADOR LONDON, Sept. 12. UP)— General Emmanuel D'Astier de Ja Vigierie, former interior commissioner for the French Committee of National Liberation, will leave for Washington soon "to represent France as ambassador to the United States," the Paris radio said today.
