Ardizzone1 Follows Great Great Aunt In Human Rights Battle By JOY MILLER NEW YORK AP - A hundred years ago Sophia Yarnall Jacobs' great great aunt was ostracized and on occasion jailed in her fight for the rights of women and Negroes. "She was a great girl," Mrs. Jacobs says of her indomitable ancestor, Lucretia Mott, "Very small, fragile, infinitely determined and afraid of nobody. I'm afraid of almost everybody. It's fantistic what she did. I'm projd of having even a collateral relationship with her." She sighs, rather wistfully, and adds: "We're in theusame fight today. But I don't believe for a moment I could measure up to her." Fortunately. Mrs. Jacobs' modest views about her own accomplishments are not shared by anybody else. Just yesterday she was the recipient of the 1963 American Woman's Association Award for eminent achievement, which since 1931 has been given to such women as Amelia Earhart, Margaret Sanger and Sen. Margaret Chase Smith. "Inspired volunteer leader in movements for human rights and world peace" the award calls her. But characteristically, Mrs. Jacobs protests that the award belongs to the entire membership of th National Council of Women of the United States, of which she just happens to be president. "I got into women's organizations please, not clubs, organizations rather protesting!' seven or eight years ago." says Mrs. Jacobs. "Protestingly, because 1 like working with men very much and above all I don't like anvthina sesreaated women. Negroes, political groups. I've al- wavs seen an analogy between discriminatory practices against minority groups and discrimina tory practices against women. Unique Functions "For many years my interest was in the field of race relations. Then I moved into the field of women's rights. It occurred to me that DerhaDs a women's organiza tion had unique functions to perform that couldn't be done by mixed men and women's groups, for example in pressing for women's rights and eq lal opportunity for women in employment. Mrs. Jacobs, now a pretty, white-haired Grandmother with a disarmingly easy manner, says she married after I1 years at Bryn Mawr College "where I got well indoctrinated with women's rights." After her boy and girl had grown ud she went to work for the Phil adelphia Orchestra. There she came to know Marian Anderson and othe distinguished Negro art ists. "I real v had never thought about their problems before. and having thought about it 1 had to do something about it." She worked for the World Af fairs Council and later New York's Urban League of which she is now chairman of the board. ! She's also vice chairman of the American Civil Liberties Union and of the American Committee on Africa. In 1957 she visited Africa to learn more about the status of women there, and tn 1959 she was one of the Americans in the first woman-to-woman exchange with the Soviet Union. "The problems of this world are so immense you'd cut your throat i you felt you couldn't do your little bit." she says. "But you should concentrate on one thing, not scatter yourself all over the lot. "I've learned to budget time and energy and live a pretty routine life, so I can manage pretty well. When strains come I get edgy, but I keep reminding my-sel.' it's not the end of the v. odd." To keep yourself going, Mrs. Jacobs thinks it's important to have lots of extracurricular activities. She likes music, the theater, swimming, and walking in Central Park and daily the long trek to her National Council office. On the way to work she thinks about the world's problems and she has concluded: "The major concern of our country today is racial discrimination. If we don't resolve it quickly the Soviet Union will capture the loyalty of all non-whites, whether in Asia or Africa or Latin America. The rest of the world is important to us, for our preservation." For a moment she looks gloomy, then smiles. "But I feel encour aged. I don't know why. Maybe l ve got a good liver.

J , SUNDAY, APRIL 21. 1!)R3 15 Regard Dublin Stylists As Distinctly Different DUBLIN AP - "It all started with a red flannel petticoat." The words sound ou' of place in the elegant Georgian drawin : room overlooking Merrion Square where Sybil Connolly, Ireland's best-known designer abroad, en tertains visitors in the grand manner. In nine vcars the names of Con nelly, Irene Gilbert and Kay Petersen's new Anna Livia Boutinue have put irish fashion firmly on tne Internationa! map ;o longer, are the words "handwoven tweed" synonymous with arty peasant Crafts the halmark of all three major designers is an original and highly sophisticated use of exquisite handmade native materials. In North America, particular, the Dublin couturiers are re garded as exclusively 'different ' from those of Paris or London, t Each of the "Big Three" has her own speciality among the lo cal fabrics. Svbil Conno v's is gossamer-fine Irish linen, hand-pleated and stitched to form a light, uncrushable, hard-wearing material with a richly textured feel. Red Was A Hit She makes it up into cocktail and evening gowns, dyed in brilliant pinks, bronze-gold and slate- blue. Unbleached, it forms the wall covering of her Dublin salon, setting off the gilt empire furni ture and moss-green carpets. Vet it all started with red flannel petticoat worn bv a' peasant woman in a cottage door way in Connemara. In the snrin of 1953, Sybil Connolly was brood ing over her first collection on a motor tour of Western Ireland "I stopped the car and thought 'I must have that in my' " She bought yares of thj traditional red flannel, ouiited it nn.H made it into a long evening skirt. Teamed with a white crochet blouse, it bowled over the American buyers at the show. It still is a top seller in the Connolly boutique. Tipperary-born Irene Gilbert, an aristocratic-looking woman with the reserved charm warming into gaiety that forms a distinctive "Dublin manner," was Ireland's first couturier. She began in 1947 and has perhaps been unfairly overshadowed by the publicity given abroad to Connolly's clothes. Miss Gilbert's hallmark is Car-rickmacross lace, hand-sewn by nuns and cottagers to age-old designs, moonted on fine net and made up into filmy cocktail frocks and blouses for movie stars and members of the Irish county nobility. Besides commissioning work. Miss Gilbert buys up lace wedding gowns and christening veils from the treasure chests of old ladies. She remodels the leg o mutton sleeves and tight bodices into a line as modern as the twist a delicate job because of the risk of cutting the edges of the lace patterns. Most Irish couture clothes go overseas the republic is still too poor and underpopulated to s :pport such a luxury industry but Dublin is one of the few capi tals left where people dress formally for private dinner-parties, and Irene Gilbert's casual elegent styles are widely seen in the cas-tcls that form the hub of Irish county society. Enrolls in School Miss Deborah Lyon Chapman, 31 Carlton Road, Metuchen, is enrolled in the one-year secre tarial course at the Katharine Gibbs. School, New York City, where she will begin her work July 8. Miss Chapman will be graduated from Metuchen High School. i Soft and Pliable To keep the skin soft and pliable, massage your elbows with a soapy lather as you bathe, then follow with a second massage with a sponge.
