Pants Designed For Elegance in Rome By LEONORA DODSWORTH AP Fashion Writer ROME (AP) - Rome fashion house Barocco presented a new view oh pants in their spring- summer 'showing Wednesday night. Called "pouf pout" by designer partners Gilles and Rocco, they took the form of knickerbockers and—with jackets added—were meant to be worn in a city location. The way Barocco made these pants suits, ttiey were elegant enough to be worn on New York's Fifth Avenue but as a design idea they were pretty drastic.

Pants apart, these outfits consisted of long jackets with deep horseshoe necklines that revealed frosty white shirts that wrapped high round the neck. Sometimes there was also a vest included. Coats were 'straight-cut with lightly padded shoulders. In silver gray tweeds, they were girdled with a new belt made of linked pearl buttons that looked just like ear studs.

It had a big deep pointed collar, a tiny and sprang into deep folds from just below the bust. Coming Events Monday First Methodist W.S.C.S. Dell Baptist W.M.U. Altrusa Club of Blytheville 7 p. m.
