"GAY TWENTIES" — In the above picture (left to right) Mrs. R. A. Porter, Mrs. Max Logan and Mrs. John Caudill are modeling fashions of the "Twenties." These fashions were the theme of the Junior Auxiliary Fashion Show in 1952. "Twenties 77 Styles to Return In Fall Fashions This Year By MILLIE ANN MALLORY (Courier News Society Editor) Jazz bands and moving picture shows have been reviving songs and stories of the "Gay Twenties," and now Christian Dior comes out with fall fashions that revive the clothes of that era. Box Office Opens 6:45 Show Starts 7:00 p.m. . Admission 15c & 35c At All Times TUBS., WED., & THURS. Double Feature -Theatre- On West Main St. In Blythevilie Show Starts Weekdays 7:00 Sat, Sun. 1:00 THEATRE OSCEOLA WIN FRIENDLY THEATRE Relax in Air Conditioned Comfort In looking at fall clothes and window shopping, you see some odd creations. Shoes are so pointed and have ;uch small heels that a person wit. large feet will look like they have on shoeboxes. Hats are out of this world, some dating back to the first autmo- oiles and others looking like the bird cage in the zoo. Manufacturers of reducing products may ge rich this fall because every woman in the United States will be on a diet so they will be able to wear these creations. The husbands, however, will be the ones to suffer, both in food and money. Of course, by the time the women get the tonnage off in the right places another fashion will be out and here we go again. Jewelry also is changing this fall and going back to the long- ropes and dangling ear screws. The working girls will look smart with their ropes of jewelry lying upon their desk as they bend over them slaving away. Opinions Vary Short bobbed hair cuts are going to be in style, and they say a woman's hair is supposed to be her pride and glory. Women have been wearing knee length hose this summer and, with the new shoj „ dresses, I wonder if they'will paint their knees with rouge like they did in the "Twenties"? BlytheviUe w omen's opinions vary on the subject of the fall clothes. The younger girls who have never had to wear them think they are fascinating- and women who have worn them say they had prettier clothes then than they 1 • ever had. Of course, they weren't married then and could afford them. On- girl said she could get her mother's trunk out and she would have a fall wardrobe. Another said she was so short that with those loose dresses she would look like a barrel. Some say they are about the "tackiest things" they have ever seen and others say, "Who in the world has the money to change their wardrobe every time the moon changes?' 1 Someone said they certainly don't look like much on a rack. In the over all picture the men seem to be more u. -et than the women. If the clothes are changing, I wonder if the bunnyhop will go out of style and the "Charleston" return? The merchants seem to think that most of the American styles will be altered to a certain extent and be more civilized looking, with tlr basic color being anthracite, a dark grey. Luncheon Given For Armorei Youths Mrs. J. E. Cooper entertained•members of the Young People's Department of the Armorei Baptist Church Monday with a luncheon.
