.PAGE. SIX Theater Or Dinner Suit Say Pick One That Fits . Right Rather Than Ex* • pensive One BV MARIAN YOUNG -N'EA Service Siaft" Correspondent NEW YORK.—Too many women , .shop, for a new dress instead of I the right dress, according to Sophie ' Gimbel, one of America's greatest designers. "li'i; a real mistake for any woman to dash out and hurriedly pick : up, to wear to tomorrow's party; Mrs. Gimbel continues, "The perfect wardrobe never develops tremendous gaps at. crucial moments. When it appears chat the one black dress 'should .be relegated, to the second best category, the smart, woman starts ' looking then and there for a new black one—Instead of waiting until a party or an unexpected trip forces her to buy it hurriedly." The tall, slender, light-haired, extremely good-looking Mrs. Gimbel, who came to New York from Texas and has become an outstanding success in the field of designing-, points out thai a perfect, wardrobe doesn't necessarily mean AH extensive cue.. . - . "You don't have to 'have "lots' of clothes in order to be chic," she explains, "But you most certainly have to have the right clothes.' 4 . HERE'S A GOOD COVERAGE WARDROBE -For the average woman, the right clothes, according to Mrs. Gimbel, include: a suit which may be worn with blouses in town, with sweaters or sports blouses'in'the country; a -plain, well-cut, dress.. in " black or some- other dark, neutral color; a dinner dress in. black or a dixi'k shade of winch she and others won't tire easily; an evening dress, preferably one with its own jacket. If she just never wears evening clothes, then a simple 'silk afternoon dress may be substituted for . the • last-named item. Mrs. Gimfael believes that dresses should t>e a subtle background for a woman's personality. "When you remember what she had on, but nothing about the woman herself, you .can bet that what she had on was all wrong," the designer explains. "The right clothes never overwhelm their wearer. Unless a'dress makes YOU prettier or ..smarter than you really think you are, don't buy it." •"'-'"• Among Sophie ; Gimbel's • list of dont's for women who would • be" , inore chic are: ' Don't' buy accessories hurriedly. The wrong bag or the wrong hat or shoes will ruin the appearance of the smartest dress. Don't wear too many fussy, frilly accessories which will detract from the simple beautiful lines of the dress or suit. By all .means don't pile too many feathers or jewels .or '-flowers' into your evening coiffure. , A smart hairdo, like a smart dress, depends on good lines. It can be ruined with gew-gaws. ' Don't shop hun-iedly or have .your clothes fitted - hurriedly. Last- minute shooping is no bigger mistake than frantic, last-minute fittings. Don't buy a too-small dress and have to let it out. If you cannot get the right size, buy a size larger and have it made smaller. Don't, if you are more than size 18. rear a blouse that contrasts with your suit skirt. For large •figures,, skirts and blouses should be the SPme color PERFECT FIT IS MOST IMPORTANT Don't spend so much on a dress • '.hat there is no money left in the budget for alterations. Better to buy an inexpensive dress and have It properly fitted than .an"expensive dress which will have to be ; worn as is. Don't buy anything which isn't essentially comfortable. All smart clothes are easy-fitting through hips and shoulders. Don't think that smart clothes occasion of alone can make a chic woman of cvenin S- you. Your makeup, your coiffure and .your posture are just as important No dress, however fine is at its best on the woman who does not carry herself well Sophie Gimbel those (he accessories shown with smart theater or dinner suit, which she designed. Of beige wool, tbe jacket is embroidered with diagonal stripes of black sequins. Gloves and slippers are of beige kidskin, matching: (he suit. Other accessories include a muff of silver fox, Chinese bell gold earrings and a tiny black velvet skull cap, trimmed with birds of paradise.

Milk 'Controversy' Sets Off Lively Session (Continued From Page 1) not .equipped to - make - detailed tests. At the same 1 time he said he •was willing to co-operate with the health unit to protect the city's milk supply and invited inspection of his dairy by all interested persons. Dairyman Craig, who appeared on the scene somewhat belatedly, said that not a dairy serving Blytheville was living- up to the standard milk ordinance and that the blame rested on the city for failure to keep out .the "milk bootleggers." He said dairymen were forced to •uroduce milk to compete with "bootlezgers" and that in doing so they did not maintain the high standards of the milk ordinance. Craig said he was getting out of the dairy business because it had ruined him (giving some credence to rumors that a major milk distributor was going to .enter this territory). Asked ay city officials why he Didn't renort milk bootleggers to them. Craig said that was the city j officials' job. that the dairymen I shouldn't be required to do the watching for the bootleegers and that he had told them that many times before. He charged that the administration had maintained an indifferent attitude toward the milk ordinance for years. Craig and Mayor Williams clashed over somewhat personal remarks at one stage although their crossfire of comment was not the only business property, located on Walnut street adjacent to the city I hall, suffered dining' the street dance which preceded the Cotton Picking Contest against his license fee as a practicing, attorney was read.

He asked an allowance of $4.97, stating that he was unable to estimate damage caused to the building's roof at this time. On a motion to return Mr. Douglas iris check for the difference between his total license fee and the damage claimed ^tantamount to rejecting hi s claim) Alderman E. R. Jackson, Loy Welch and John C. McHaney voted affirmatively. Alderman E. R. Jones said he would have to study the matter longer. The motion carried. Mr. Jones made a motion to allow Jodie Nabers, grocer at the south end of 21st street, $70 on his privilege license for materials and work Nabers had expended at the street or Highway No. 18 turn at the end of 21st street. Alderman Jackson. Welch and McHaney 'voted against the allowance. Alderman McHaney said he felt that the city had carried out its part of a bargain with Mr, Nabers when it had provided the work for putting in tile at the corner and also filling in to about ground level. Welch" and Jackson indicated . By NBA Service NEWBERRY, Mich., Nov. 7;— As it must to even the best of wolves. death came to ornery Old Clubfoot the other day. After eluding the hot lead and cold steel of upper Michigan hunters and trappers for many a year, the notorious old timber wolf ran afoul of a radio technician by the name of Leslie j Powis,. who lives here in Newberry. At least twice before the big brute had been trapped. 'Both times he tore loose, losing a forepaw once to get his nickname, Old Clubfoot, and dropping- two claws from his other front foot in the second encounter. But the other day Old Clubfoot was not as' young- as he once was. and he put his foot •; in it. Powis placed his set so that the wolf entered a .narrow approach and couldn't miss "the trap. This "tune the trap held. Powis, whose hobby is trapping. had prepared his- own special! "wolf call," had wailed with baited trap for three weeks after running across the trail of the wolf whose forays had made him- the most sought after animal in the upper peninsula. Old' Clubfoofc was eight feet from tip to tip. and that's some wolf. But he was gaunt, having fallen upon unhappy hunting in his oldjige because of his missing paw. He weighed about 100 pounds, but Powis estimated. he would have hit 150 had he been in good flesh.
