2 - Wed., May 19, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts Travel lightly with Mimi Benzell By HELEN HENNESSY NEW YORK (NEA) - Few people travel more frequently than an artist in the field of entertainment. And so it's natural that tips on how to travel lightly should be forthcoming from Mimi Benzell, star of opera, concert, theater, television and now radio. "I stuff hoses, pockets and purses with small things when I pack for a trip," Miss Benzell said. "There's never an inch of wasted space in my luggage. I told her that I was curious as to what her travel tips would be for I bad talked on tiie same Eubject with another singing star recently.And I was speechless to learn that for a two-week trip she took ONLY six suitcases and two small trunks. "She meant when she traveled professionally," Mimi BeMell said. "Then you must take along a lot more." But she admitted that professional travel made one a pro when it came to personal travel. "You learn aU kinds of tricks." "For instance, last year on vacation," she said, "I bought an inexpensive purse that came with slip-on covers in different colors. This'one bag served for every daytime purpose for I could convert it to match every ensemble. "I also take only simple clothes — dresses that can be dressed up or down and are suitable for most occasions with just a change of shoes or jewelry. "Knits are ideal. Many blends and cotton knits are wrinkle- proof and can be washed, dried quickly and worn again. "Some of the newest are so lightweight that they can be rolled up to fit into shoes or other items that take up space in a suitcase. So with a wise selection, you can have frequent changes in knits for daytime through evening and still carry only one suitcase. "Collapsible fabric hat* are With vacation time close at hand, it's wise to take a dose look at lightweight, wrinkle- proof, washable knits as traveling companions. Wearing a Tycora yarn design, Mimi Benzell, who travels frequently as a star of opera, stage and radio, shows its featherweight quality by holding several dresses on one finger Gett) and rolling a dress into a shoe (mset) to save luggage space. Tycora is highlighted with metal yarn in ,the packable after-dark knitwear fashion (right). All are Caledonia designs. another space saver, for they can be tucked into the comer of a bag and come out looking fine. "You must be sensible about shoes," she said. "You needn't take along every pair in your wardrobe, but a change or two is necessary for feet weary from sightseeing." . I add one note to Miss Benzell's advice. There's hardly a spot on earth where yon can't buy anything you've forgotten. So travel with a light heart as well as a light suitcase. You won't be in any difficulty if you've inadvertently left something at home. TREASURE HOUSE pliances will find a ready mar- set through Classified Ads.

The, most eagerly awaited spectacle in the Northwest each year, Seafair is now firmly established as one of the country's most illustrious celebrations, comparing in stature with the St. Paul Winter Carnival and New Orleans riotous Mardi Gras. What is Seafahr? It Is a 10-day affair—sched uled this year July 30 through August 8 — which embodies Broadway shows, sports events, parades, a water carnival, community celebrations and general hijinks. Greater Seattle, Inc., a civic promotion group, sponsors the annual fete, as well as working with the City of Seattle in providing year-round entertainment for its citizens at the Seattle Center, a marvelous complex of buildings and grounds inherited from the successful 1962 World's Fair.
