(FREE PRESS PHOTO) Hat Fashions Copied From Yesteryear By GAY PAULEY NEW YORK (DPI) -The latest feminine tial Irick bor- riws from the boys. Hats copied from what men wore yesteryear and wear today emerge as (he strong trend for (all and winter. Women will be wearing versions of everything from helmets taken from Ihe days when knighthood was in flower, on through to the jaunty Robin "Hood shapes, the Stetson of Ihe cowboy, and a number of versions of the Aussie's upswept brim hat with strap under the chin. Add in fedoras, dozens of stylos of capes, and the dressy Homburgs. One designer does the Homburg in white felt with metallic gold trim for evening. By sharp contrast, another trend is, to Ihe ultra-feminine hat with big, face-flattering brims back on the scene. One of these "picture" hats is all feathers and a yard wide, and can't you just see that one on a windy winter day! New hats were spotlighted in Ihe Millinery Institute of America's semi-annual brunch "bash" for visiting fashion editors. Boise is the home for newlyweds, Mr. and Mrr.

Eighty seven per cent of them saw their husbands as a provider, or breadwinner. Shocking, isn't il? Not only that, it's almost nauseating. Of course, the researcher can prove almost anything he wants to with a survey. All he has to do is find the right people to answer his questions or phrase the questions in just the right way. However, slanting the views of 622 women isn't that easy, so we can't take these results lightly. The image of theAmer- ican may not be as bad as this survey shows, but the survey does tell us a lot about what is happening in our society. What ever happened fo the revered father of not so long ago who came home from a hard day's work to an adoring, devoted wife and children? Jn our modern society, that poor guy seems to have been murdered. Or maybe he just died a natural death due lo "circumstances beyond his control". Take for instance the city guy. Because he lives in a large city or its suburbs, he has to commute to work. This may take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half to do. This means he spends from two to five hours a day just traveling to and from work. This traveling time causes him to leave the house before the children are up in the morning, and in many cases, to arrive home at night after they are in bed. Therefore, his children see little or nothing of him except on weekends. Since they see so little of him, it's no wonder his family begins regarding him as .lilfle. more than a pay "check 1 . A'tter all, he doesn't settle typical dlily family disputes, attend the children's school activities, play games with the family in the evenings, or participate in any oilier of the .nuititude of activities associated with family life. Before long, even on weekends when he is home, he is treated liks another piece of furniture. The chiii'en aie so used to going to Mom with their problems five days a week that it never occurs to them to do otherwise on weekends. But Ihe city dwelling man isn't the only one whose image has .slipped-- il'shappened allover America. One thing which has fostered this situation is television. In most of the family situation comedies on television, the children are smarter than Mother and she's much brighter than Dad. In fact, Dad's a loveable but laughable guy who fumbles and bumbles around and generally makes a mess of everything he does. The worst of it all is that this television father is usually pretty well manipulated by his wife. She competently settles all tlie family's problems and then skillfully using her feminine wiles, she convinces Father that he really was Ihe one who settled things. Ot course, the viewing audience knows that he diiln't. What's more Ihe psychology she uses on her husband wouldn't worko;i (he average three year old, but this guy swallows it all Ihe way. . Do Americans lust-like to think they're -extra clever and smart or do they really think'men are that dumb? If not, why do they allow their children's minds to be swayed by that sort of garbage? After all, what a program like that really does is plant the idea in a child's mind that Mommy is really tha smart one around the house and Daddy is pretty dumb. What child can respect his father when he has that kind of image of him? You may say "How orepos- terousl What kind 01 woman would do a thing like that to her husband?" Well, Irom the evidence of the earlier cited survey, most American wome^ would do it -- and they probably do. If 87 per cent of them will admit lo a surveyor that they see their husbands primarily as a provider, then their children are being instilled with the same attitide. Oh, the mother undoubtedly doesn't come right out and tell the children not to respect their father as a human being. SJie doesn't have to do that. Children learn attitudes by observing adults and they sense adult feelings very easily.
