Gentlemen, Give Your Queen A Robe Husbands with romontic ideas about gift buying for Christmas will find the fashions this year support their fondest dream. In seasons past, conservative-mindod wives have tended to look askance at long, flowing at-home wear. In elegant turnabout, women are baring their knees by day and covering their ankles after five in the most romantic wrap-up of all this Christmas. On the home front, the ladies have decided it's high time they played as dramatic a role as any star on stage. Most of (he new loungewcar, no matter how filmy it may look, can be put in the washing machine, so there's no e.xtra care price on home-scene glamour. Designers for Gossart-Artem- is, who have master-mindeded a large and handsome collection of holiday season coverups, say hu.sbands will be revealing facets of their own pei-sonality by the styles they select. The man who fancies his wife in an empire robe may yearn for lu.xury, simplicity and ease of the Napoleonic era. If his eye falls on a velvet coachman coat with glittering buttons, he's probably spent at least a moment or two in his life dreaming about the stately life of an English lord. If he wraps up a full-length robe with flowing back, he may have a secret desire to \isit Camelot and chat with Guinivere. In keeping with the richness of these private life fashions are the soft, quilted fabrics, and the vivid colors which include violet, cherry, avocado, marigold, ruby red, and gold along with basic blue, turquoise and pink. Even linings are a color delight, with surprising contrast of violet outside and deb blue inside, or avocado with pink. Gowns come long, supple, and flowing to match these in something long, flowing. ecial Bonus Offer! to our Chrishnas Clubl Members m-i t I This ZVh RPM recording, featuring S Lionel Barrymore in his favorite role | as Scrooge in Diclcens' Christmas g Classic, "A Christmas Carol/' and g the celebrated Canterbury Choir | singing fen beloved Christmas ^ Hymns and Carols. | A $3.95 value — only $1.25 to Christmas Club members.

ILL What's Correct re Christmas Cards Whose name comes first If you use a card with your names printed or engraved on It? Here the wife's name is coui-teously used first; "Mary and Tom" (or "Mary and Tom Green"). If a Christmas card is engraved with the sender's names, with "Mr. and Mrs.," should these be at the top or bottom of the card? Always at the top. Otherwise, they might seem like a signature. When signing the card, whose name is written first — the husband's or wife's ? It is courteous for the pei-son signing the cai-d to wi-ite the other's name first. For example, if you sign the card for you and your husband, it should read: "Tom and Mary."
