' J ' * '- \",'!- L fc THE BAKERSFIELD CALIPOHN1AN, MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 1933 l( SHIRT VETOES MANNISH CLOTHES Says Women Not Built Right to Wear Masculine Attire; Dietrich Ignored (Associated Press Leased Wire) PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 30.—Marleno Bletrlch may wear them if she pleasea but, says John Schalderer, chairman of the style committee £bf the International Ausoclatlon of Clothing -Designers, "women. Just aren't built to wear men'n clothes, no matter \vho designs them." Commenting on -this latest fad among Hollywood stare, Schalderer expressed the opinion at the semiannual convention of the designers that It "short-lived." '/Anyway,", ho added, "It doesn't inean a thing to us. Thero Isn't a designer In America who will ever try to cut men's clothes for women." And that, It would seem, Is tliat. Behind locked doors, the designers pondered much more weighty matters, to their minds, than whether tho female of the species shall don coats, vests and pants. For, they are engaged In deciding for tho man-about- town what sho shall wear In 19S3. Their dictum, it is said, is that coats will be broader at the shoulder this season, snug fitting at the hips and form-fitting at the waist. Only 'the top buttons of stnglo breasted coats will be buttoned, accentuating the waistline and broad shoulders. Trousers will be hlgh-walsted, pleated at the waist, "pegged" at the thighs and measure 20 Inches In width at the cuffs, , Topcoats can be either single or double breasted and have either regular of raglnn sleeves.

Trading Sluggish, on Even Keel; Rails Display Firmness LATE BULLETIN NEW YORK, Jan. 30. (A. P.)— The stock market leaned forward slightly In an extreme quiet session today. The closing tone was steady, with some advances of substantial fractions to more than a point, but the turnover was only about 500,000 shares. (Associated Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Jan 30.—Tho stocjt market drifted on an almost oven keel today. The list remained extremely sluggish, but rails showed a littlo firmness as tho session wore on, and a nomewhat easy tendency noted elsewhere In the list was soon overcome. By cnrly afternoon, most price changes wero negligible, although some shares wero up fractions to moro than a point. Norfolk & Western roso !}{, points In n small turnover, nnd Delaware & Hudson and Canadian Pacific, about a point. Union Pacific, off a little at the start, recovered. Steol common was steady, and the preferred, up a fraction. American Telephone, off a major fraction in the early dealings, erased Its loss before mid-day. Tho formation of a Hitler cabinet In Germany may have been a factor In the easy tone of the markets generally at the start, for the growth of the Nazi movement was regarded an alarming by financial quarters here a few days ago. But tho attitude toward Hitler has changed considerably in the pnst year, and some International banking quarters now express the view that a German chancellor with a large popular following should be considered constructive. Tho approach of U. S. Steel's quarterly directors' meeting for dividend action, slated for tomorrow afternoon, again acted as a brake upon speculative Impulses in the market, although Wall street, now definitely understands that tho regular preferred dividend will not bo paid.
