Here are three versions of John Frederics' "advanced modern" cloches for fall (1. to r.): The sequin helmet, the winged velour helmet and the rocket helmet. Colors Include voltage blue, future pink and a series of "bleached" pastels. By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Fashion Editor You're all set, fashion-wise, for a rocket li-ip to the moon in some of the more advanced fall styles in head-and-footgcar. Among the millioners, John Frederics plunges farthest into the future with his new collection of "advanced modern" shapes, which include Ihe "linear cloche," the "free form" and the "light struck" designs. This strictly contemporary do- signer feels that hats should be pure form this ; year, uncluttered by trimmings, hugging the head and ready for whatever space flights may be in store. Fall shoes are just as radical, going in for invisible foot coverage. Clear, transparent vinylite is used in some of the season's most advanced styles, giving the illusion of bareness but actually providing full covering for the foot. These, too, manage to have a look of the future—the sort of footgear chosen by ladies of the atomic age, who expect to travel about the firmament at supersonic speeds.

MARRIAGE LICENSE Frederick Proctor, Ellery, 111. and Wanda Janell Green, RED 2, Grayville, 111. 1 RUTH MILIETT Mt. Vernon's New Citizen LUCKY "Al" Coming Soon Most Men Help In Kitchen But the Minority Lingers On According to a recent survey 91 per cent of American husbands that help their wives with the housework. That figure seems incredibly high unless the men queried felt they could give a "Yes" answer, if, in their long memories they had ever hung up their own clothes, made the morning coffee when their wives were too illl to totter to the kitchen, or graciously consented to help Mama move the piano at housecleanmg time. But let's not quarrel with statistics. Let's consider what you ought to do if your own husband belongs to that small minority who still cling to the old-fashioned notion that housework is woman's work. Shall you try shaming him with the fact that his wife is among the underprivileged 9 per cent of American women whose husbands refused to lend a hand around the teepee ? Wife Has Choice of Action Or should you take decisive action by handing him the tea towel next time you start to wash dishes and saying: "Here, Busier, the honeymoon is over?" Or should you just forget those humiliating statistics and go right on being, not .just the chief cook and bottle washer, but the iol« cook and bottle wushor? For the sake ot your httppy home, the last answer Is probably the best one. Some men feel mighty strongly against doing any housework and just because they are In the minority doesn't mean they aren't convinced they are standing on their rights. Just the other day a wife said in court that whenever she asked her husband to hang up his pajamas he would remind her that he had enough of being ordered around in the army. And whenever she tried to reason with him and explain what she thought were his responsibilities around the house, he'd tell her how much she reminded him of his top sergeant. So you see how strong some of those minority husbands feel about being expected to do housework.
