SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1943 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE on Department New Designs to Be Taken From Pacific By ADELAIDE KERR AP Features -Writer Dorothy Liebs is among th best "one man shows" in Ameri can business. She is to textiles what Schia parelti is to clothes. * # # She can take plastic beads blui green chenille, black fur, siive thread, red raffia--and a fev more things--and weave them into an evening jacket fabric tha will do more for romance thai Cinderella's slippers. She doe some simpler and less expensive tricks for Mrs. Jones' draperies and curtains too. Mrs. Liebs also has the reputation of being a shrewd business woman. So when she talks abou business trends after the war. you can afford to listen * * * The other day she said in rapid fire English over cinnamon toast and tea in New York: "After the war we're going to use design expression from China India and the South Sea Islands Before the war Americans never thought of the Pacific. If they had a few dollars they went to Europe But I doubt whether in our lifetime Europe will ever again be the influence that it was. The Pacific is the coming great sphere of influence. New ideas, pattern and forms will come from the Pacific--and that includes Central and South America. Our biggesl markets will be there. We each have things the others want. Europe is prostrate. It is not going to be a big market for a long time But our boys have been to Australia, remember. It's no longer a strange country to them. "With the development of the airplane distance has been lost After the war the average Mr Snooks will be able to go to the orient." * * * The very air seems to crackle when Mrs. Liebs talks. She is a tall, blond, good looking gal who wears her hair in a modern pompadour in front and an oldfash- loned coil of braids in the back She was born Dorothy Wright in California, lives there still and reflects a strong California influence in her worlc. She attended the California School of Fine Arts and was graduated from the University of California. After she took her master's degree at Columbia she taught three years at Teachers college. Then she went abroad for a year, and after her return was married to Leon Liebes, a California merchant. * * * Early in her girlhood, she became interested in textiles. And - --- ....-- -»..j.*.vi j i i L^.vmua. Zulu before her education was complete she went to Hull House in Chicago for study. Thereafter she was never without a loom. "Weaving is like aviation," she says, "after you have mastered the technique, from then on it's a solo flight." * * * Mrs. Liebes lives in a modem apartment overlooking San Francisco's Chinatown and works in a separate studio where she em- loys 8 to 15 girls. She has woven textiles for some of the biggest private houses and designers in America. She begins by making colored crayon cartoons of every design, selects her materials, dyes them and weaves the first yard of every textile herself. Ideas fly to her like metal to a magnet She works like an electric dynamo and runs on about four hours sleep a night. But she doesn't miss any fun. Goes out about five nights a week. Then comes home and dictates 30 or 40 letters on a dictating machine before she goes to bed, Jones-Larson Vows Spoken by Couple EAGLE GROVE--Mr. and Mrs. Henry T. Larson announce the wedding of their daughter, Margaret, to Cpl. Robert G. Jones, son of Mr, and Mrs. Orval Jones, performed at the parsonage of the East Side Lutheran church, Dec 26, the Rev. T. J.

Grandma's fashions arc making headlines these days, as heat rationing and wartime priorities send our once scantily-clad modern misses scurrying for flannel nightgowns and woolly "bundling clothes." This winter it's smart to bundle up, and choose your wardrobe for warmth. Woolen stockings will be seen on some of thc best-dressed legs this season, as silks and nylons disappear. Red flannels will graduate from the winter sports class to everyday wear, as office and apartment building heat is reduced. Woolen scarfs, hug-me- tights and fascinators, all favorites of grandmother's day, are back with a bang. A sensation of the New York fall openings was thc bundling -turban introduced by Lilly Dachc, a woolen stocking cap with a long end to be twisted around the head or wrapped around the neck according to your fancy and the weather. Top-flight designers are showing wool skirts and jumpers, little extra quilted jackets, even fur lounging slacks for added warmth in heat-rationed homes. The scarf business is booming, with woolens away out in front. There arc scarf-hoods lo keep your cars warm,- big brushed wool numbers almost thc size of a blanket to wrap around your shoulders, divers versions of grandma's lacy woolen fascinator. This year it's Bundling for America! --o--JOYCE KILMER CLUB TO MEET Joyce Kilmer club will have its first meeting of the new year Monday evening at 8 o'clock at the Milwaukee Women's club with Stacia Harding, Vera McCorkle and Almeda-Walters as hostesses Margaret Carroll, Mary Gallagher and Nona Finnegan will have the lesson and Millie Daly and Florence O'Leary, the current events. --o-FAREWELL DIN'NER GIVEX FOR MR.

Uniformed Women Are j ^ ' f o 't^T " '° t ! ° ove1 ' By HELEN MONBERG WASHINGTON, U.R) -- In the past year America has seen something new on the national scene-- --J, study- . -- non-combatant jobs to release men for active duty, e are about 16,000 -- service oMhe army, navy and coast guard, all of whom have gone into uniform since May 15, and most since August. If pre.'ent estimates become realities, there will be close to 200,000 women in the ranks by Jan. 1, 1944, which means 200,000 more men on active duty or 200,000 fewer family men drafted. Asked for a comment about the women's army auxiliary corps, soundly trained and ready to go on an essential war job, are celebrating thc new year in the one way in which they most want to celebrate it -- b y leaving WAAC training centers in increasing numbers to begin their duties at army posts and stations across the nation and overseas. (WAACs are now serving in Britain and Africa.)" if. if. if. The WAAC.s have made great strides since May 15. There are nearly 11,000 WAACs in school and on duty, and schools are turning out hundreds nearly every week. Last m o n t h President Roosevelt ordered thc corps to full .strength--150,000. Director Hobby hopes this can be accomplished by January, 1044. Although two months younger than the WAACs, the women's naval reserve WAVES, got rapidly and grew fast. When Mildred of the navy, the under way more almost as H. McAfee, president of Welleslcy college, was appointed head of the WAVES last July 30, she immediately an- hampton, Mass.

Commandant of the Comr, Dorothy SPARS will go into a training school, or "boot camp" at Cedar Falls, Jan. 20. SPARS now number about 100; by the end of 1943 thc corps is expected to be about 5,000 strong.

IP December, only four marriages were performed there all by the pastor, the Rev. F. L. Hanscom. It has been at least 20 years since so small a number in one month has been recorded. In 1940 when The Little Brown Church, was nationally known for its marriages, the month of December had 80, and the total for the year was 1549, the highest record the church ever had, couples coming from all parts of the United States, in autos, by train, and airplanes. January, February and March of 1941 started of with 35 more than the first three months of 1940, but about this time the new health marriage law went into effect, and the number began to go down in April. April started out with 16. and in April the preceding year there were 60 The total for 1941 was 802 and for 1942, 283, or 1266 less than 1940, the top year. Engaged to Marry Mr. and Mrs. James M.
