6 Friday, Feb. 85, 1»44 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE V Mink Dress! Relax, It's in a Dream B; DOKOTHT ROE AP Fashion Editor New York--"California can't hope' to compete with New York as a world fashion center, and movie styles are mostly spinach." These fightin' words come not from a movie-hating, dyed in the wool New Yorker, not from a member of Grover Whalcn's world fashion center committee, not even . from a Fifth avenue fan. The speaker is the head fashion designer for Paramount Pictures. And if you don't believe it, I have witnesses. The historic statement was made the other day by Edith Head, here in connection with the premiere of, the Ginger Rogers picture, "Lady in the Dark." Miss Head, a pint-size firebrarid with jet black hair and indignant . black eyes which she hides behind enormous dark glasses, figuratively spat on her hands and spoke: "I'm sick and tired of New York reporters and fashion editors looking down their noses as they comment loftily on movie fashions. I want to make it clear here and now that'the'clothes designed for movies are'not, never were and never will be.meant for general consumption. ' "They are designed for a specific star and a particular story, and they aren't intended as creations for the populace. ·/ "That's why I say California can't hope for recognition as a fashion center; We have only two real designers out there--studio designers don't count." ': Having delivered herself of this blast, Miss Head took a quick sip of black coffee, and continued: : "I know you're going to ask me about that mink evening gown Ginger Rogers wears in the picture. Well, I think it would be just as terrible as you think it would be if all ihe women in the country suddenly turned up wearing mink evening gowns. ".That gown was created as a - sort of dream costume--the' sort of thing a 'lady in the dark',would visualize as the climax of a fantasy. As a matter of fact, i didn't design it. There has been too much snickering going on about it--as if all you superior New Yorkers 'thought Hollywood designers had at last gone completely berserk. ./"Well, it's a circus dress. It's supposed to be fabulous and fantastic. And it isn't supposed to be copied by Gertie the typist or even Mrs. Richwitch." Miss' Head admits that in one class California designers excel-that's in the realm of sports clothes. She says: . -.'· ''California sports clothes are absolutely ,' tops.- You can't;- beat y them. But you can't build a fashion industry on -sports clothes alone. "No, I thing New York is the logical fashion capital of the world. I think New York will remain the center of style even after, the war. And more power to it!" "T Miss Head has been designing movie fashions practically all her life, except for a few early years as a school teacher. She likes.her work, and she can laugh at ft in all the right places. ·L.-.:. ,'1 hope," she remarked as I said eoodby, "that the California Chamber of Commerce doesn't get wind , of this."

Drop in every particle of meat, skin, bone and fat you discard while preparing food, the skimmings from stews and soups while cooking, and the skillet scrapings and the panbroiler drippings afterward. After meals add the fat and bones left oh the family 'plates. True, this thrifty procedure will jheat the garbage pail, but it will reveal conclusively how much leftover use'd kitchen fat you actually have for salvage,, even in these days of rationed meat. , The garbage pail merits slim pickings today. It has always fared too well in" the American home because of priority in position. Conveniently near the sink or stove, it is always at hand ready to receive any and all offerings. As science improved.its construction, making it larger, easier to open, and more pleasing ito the eye, it continued to draw business steadily until the" war. ' Today a well filled carbage can no credit to : any housekeeper, but one harboring any used fat, unsightly, burned, or s m e l l y though that fat may be, is an evidence you are not co-operating entirely in the war effort Any leftover used fat has salvage value and is the source' of the glycerine so vitally needed for ammunition, medicines and other war and civilian uses. So install today a can for used fats and meat scraps as a rival to the garbage can. Keep it in the same place. Into it drop every scrap of meat, bone or vegetable fat left from cooking. When this can is full, melt down the contents all at one time. When you have a pound can of melted fat, take it to the meat dealer and collect your cash as well as extra ration points for your thrift. Above all, have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping your country by returning to our national economy a product that is vitally needed today. A , product which is wasted unless you, in your kitchen, save it, and return it for service.
