A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE THE LOGANSPORT PHAROS-TRIBUNE A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE Florida Styles to Snub Paris' Potato-Sack Trend MIAMI BEACH — .If winter resort styles are any indication men will have plenty to ogle at next spring. Feminine curves are revealed— the way nature intended them to be—in the 1957-58 cruise and resort styles shown by the Miami fashion industry. The Florida fashion business now ranks fifth in the nation and <3oes an annual volume or more than 50 million dollars. It represents 50 manufacturers. Keynote of the collections is a "relaxed look" for greater comfort, said Mel Warshaw, president of the Miami-Florica Fashion Council. Most designers snub French potato-sack styles, which render the fair sex almost sexless. But they have "a little influence here and there," said Warshaw. More Bikinis Extremely tight-fitting dresses are out. So are full skirts that billow out when you sit down. Beachwear has gone nautical with lots of red, white and blue stripes, middy collars and sailor ties. Bikinis are more popular. They inches from the floor for daytime and ballerina length for evening. Examples of the new "looks" :hat have sneaked into Florida fashions from- Paris, Rome and New York are the "bubble skirt" and "cream puff" silhouette. They rive the effect of a balloon inflated around the hips. "Released Shcalh" There arc furs on cocktail dresses, lots of barrel-shaped suit jackets and ribbon. One designer, L Strom, used 110 yards of ribbon in horizontal bands to make a cock' tail dress. The favorite silhouette of Florida designers is the "releasec sheath," a "dress which hugs the natural curves. But it is not so tight as some of last year's styles. It permits ladies with not-so-perfect proportions to cover up what nature missed. New creations have a wider range of fabrics this year. Cotton, the old stand-by, predominates. There also are many printed silks, linen, satin, woolens and lace. Local manufacturers no longer confine themsleves to warm-weather styles, said Warshaw. Many designs are heavier and suitable Simple Cells Multiply Caster in the Dark LOS ANGELES—Zoologists have discovered that simple cells multiply faster in the dark than they do in the light and that at higher temperatures "monster" cells with many nuclei develop. The scientists have not reached a point in their study of life where they can determine the significance of these observations. But cell division and growth is the basis of all growth in living things. The miscropscopic organisms under study at UCLA are callel Eu- glenda. At 86 degrees Euglena doubles its population in the dark or light every 18 hours. But at 95 degrees the rate of multiplication varies with the light. Stronger light cuts down the rate of cell division and increases the number of "monster" cells with multiple nuclei. Dr. Jean Gross, who is engaged in the research, said these findings may mean that there are two mechanisms involved in cell division—one controlling nuclear division and the other, cell division. PURSE RETURNED LISBON, Ohio — Mrs. Ann Harco, Gonneaut, lost her purse containing $216 in cash while vacationing in the South Dakota's Black Hills, Mr. and Mrs. Elam Longnecker oE Lebanon, Pa., found the purse and turned it over to Ohio authorities as they passed through this state on their way home. SHOE SHINE BOY SYRACUSE, N. Y. — Middleweight boxing champion Carmen Basilio, who has given and received a good many shiners in his time, recently offered downtown Syracusans a few more. Basilio and other local notables shinet shoes to raise money for the Optimist Club's youth activity pro gram. HOT WATER? CAT KINGS BELL HIRAM, Me—Selectman Warren A. Bailey has' a cat that rings the "doorbell" when it wants 'to come in. A string of old sleigh and cow bells may not constitute ,the conventional doorbell, but it is just right for "Tabby." for northern resort wear. .__. .... •won't replace traditional swim suit! Most popualr colors fall styles, but more bikinis will be three categories: American into seen on beaches next summer. Backlines are plunging. Necklines aren't getting any higher, either. Knee-length dresses are not shown, in spite of efforts of French designers to put the knobby-knee back in the limelight. Florida fashions feature hemlines 15 to 16 trals, island brights and underwater tints. Beige is the top neutral shade Island brights include rich tropica' shades of yellow, blue, green and pink, often used in clashing combinations. Underwater tints are sheU tones of cool blue, green and white. i Blessings of the Season i4'<Hike to fill your Stockings with ow best Irishes for a Christmas holiday as bright at *« Kght in 8 «bild-'s eye* »* . es vwwm and ch*«y W a gtowtne Bud's TV & Service take Cicott Phone 40070 Best wishes to oil for Yuletide happiness.
