Blake Jr. PLUS SELECTED SHORTS A Woman Should Never Look Severe By DOROTHY ROE AP Women's Editor NEW YOB". l»—A woman should never look severe, in the opinion of Hannah Troy, who softens the uncompromising look of the straight silhouette this spring with femine and frilly lingerie touches, ranging from a wide cape collar of crisp, white, embroidered organdie on a navy silk afternoon dress to a discreet little collar of linen and lace on a sheer biege wool sheath. The white-collar girl is this designer's favorite for spring, »nd her crisp accents of linen and lace give a fresh and flattering look to the new fashions, viewed today by the nation's fashion press. Many of the Troy outfits achieve a two-piece look in a one-piece drejss by simulated boleros ane jackets. Others have real jackets which may be removed to turn a tailored costume into a cocktail dress. After 5 Wear For after-5 wear, this designer presents varied silhouettes,' ranging from slim shafts of silk to draped harem skirts and full gauzy skirts of chiffon or net. Oleg Cassini dramatizes the feminine figure in new ways this spring, using various devices to make a, simple and carefully shaped sheath look daringly naughty. A case in point i» hi» blact linen sheath called "Hands Off," in which a cutout section just above the bust provides -air- conditioning and manages to give the high neckline a definitely dating effect. Look More Exciting With skillful drapery and fluid handling of fabrics, Cassini builds his dresses around the figure of Box Office Opens 6:45 Show Starts 7:00 p.m. Admission 15c & 35c At All Times LAST TIMES TONIGHT h TECIthlCOlOK ji iiiANurvo-»u pBoucrnn witt SMIII wncs • CUT K WB( HcDtWOrr • JUKI 11BUOI • Scrttt fto falOBOll rff prated bj «.
