PARIS (AP) — Christian Dior, who brought skirts down with the New Look, is out to nearly to the knee.

Bosoms were exaggerated and Iwo kinds of skirts prevailed — tight shenths and inflated bells. The former he callr, "Eitfel Town," UK; latter "Cupola." Then, for variety, he whipped up some cocktail dresses in direct contrast. They sported hourglass waistlines and skirts rounded like a ball. Again, though, the emphasis was on the bosom. "Agile, dancing, full of life." were Dior's words for his new clothes. The Pro and Con of Gas Rate Hikes By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Gasoline price hikes just now snag the pockctbooks of many a vacationing motorist. They puzzle some congressmen who can't see how higher prices fit into the law of supply and demand {supposedly restored with the end of price controls). The supply of crude oil is kept so closely tailored to demand as to look like price fixing to some inquiring congressmen. prire-cuttinR. Without conservation regulations oil miRht be pumped too fast from a given oil field, so that the underground pressure needed to force oil to the well is quickly expended nnd a major part of the oil may be lost forever. Oilmen contend price hikes are necessary and just, find in the Jong run in the Interest of national defense. Their arguments run like this; The price hike In crude oil, and in gasoline, fuel oil and other products which followed, was base on rising operating costs. The search for oil Is .becoming more expensive. They have to dri! deeper each year to find it. The cost of transporting oil, refining it and distributing the products to the public keeps going up. And in the interests of national defense, the oil industry is main tabling a reserve of a million barrel-a-day capacity from which it gets only carrying ccwts, no revenue. Earnings statements of oil companies show tha t profits for the lirst half of 1953 are running behind those of a year ago—a trend contrary to that In many other industries. The oil industry expects the recent price hikes to reverse that picture. . Biff Ifs Under the law of supply and demand, however, operating costs can be passed along In higher prices only if: 1. The consuming public will accept them; and 2. competitors don't under-cut the price. That's where oilmen have to bring up extra arguments. Because the law of supply and demand in their case is frankly tailored by state laws to see that only enough oil is taken from the ground to meet current demand. These conservation laws prevent waste o£ the nation's reserves ol oil. They also incidentally put a stabilizer on prices, legally maintaining a balance between supply and demand, and thus discouraging The nation needs these oil reserves. For defense it also needs to encourage the search lor more oil fields. More than 47,000 new wells are being drilled this year, record. Oilmen insist that to get men to take drilling risks (they strike oil less often than they end up with a dry hole) there must be the incentive of profit. With operating costs rising, prices must rise, too, or risk-taking will drop.
