By MARIAN YOUNG \'EA Service StafT Correspondent NEW YORK.—With designers ookltig to the Pnti-Amcrican Expo- illoti and the romantic costume f Hungarian peasants for insplra- [on, the array of new summer resses has been made colorful, gay ind exciting. This Is a season when •on can wear bright gold, scarlet, 'arlous tones of royal blue, vivid ;recn to your heart's content. Pan-American Exposition silks come In such interesting shades as Aztec red (almost an old fash- onecl turkey red); Toltcc green (an emerald tone); Inca gold (a tine gold shade). Also In a variety of softer, rather dusty colors which arc es|icclally flattering to women with vivid coloring, such as dark eyes and hair and very white skin. Desert dawn, a cloudy rose-pink; Chile copper, a wonderful rosy hen- panipas beige, witli pinkish lights in II; desert dusk, a clear, wide-awake gray ,and Toucan, a .subdued orange, are among the nicest. Ilrijrhl Krocks for Vivid Beauties Nowadays fashlonists seem to agree that the woman with vivid coloring should wear rather bright colors. Otherwise, she overshadows her clothes to the point where they seem actually drab. Put a while skinned, dark-haired benuty in a brown ensemble and the ensemble vlll mean little or nothing. But iress her in a warm rose, dusty or scarlet frock and, immedl- itcly, she - and the costume will on new interest. On the oth- ;r hand, they say. it's n mlslakc 'or a subdued looking colorless woman to wear scarlet. The color overshadows her completely. Darker or nciitral colors will bring her out to better advantage. Anyway, if you have been wearing navy or black or beige all spring, it's a good idea to have a gay summer dress or two. If you do "'car navy or black silk sheers on hot days, freshen them up with spick and span white collars or bo\vs or jabots. Tlie cooler you look, the cooler you will feel. Low Necks for Comfort Pleats and tuckr. distinguish the smartest frocks of the moment. Many silk sheers are tucked from text on drop of Africa called, "My Chil 1 the Forest," It was deter Bishop presented the Bible lesson, Prayers were offered by Mrs M. C. Outlaw, Mrs. S. T.
