Long Torso Silhouette to Be Emphasized on Spring Fashions By DO110THY ROE AF Women's Editor NEW YORK (AP) — New York designers revealed to the nation's fashion press today that women can look feminine and alluring even though their bosoms do not precede them into a room. Previews of new spring fashions were a distinct relief to editors frightened by Paris reports of a flat-chested era. Although the new silhouette does not require fal.sies, plenty of curves are present. The bustline is naturally rounded and slightly lifted, the waistline Is un- nipped and emphasis falls to a slim, sheathed hlpline. The long torso silhouette, which forms the theme of practically every collection, gives a tubular, elongated look to the midriff, fits snugly about the hips, and may flare into pleats below the hipline. Allhough the hip belt is much In evidence, it is not the hip belt Slim Princess Lines 8211 36-52 By Sue Burnett A handsome afternoon style for the mature figure, cut on easy to sew princess lines that ore so slimming.

The bodice is carefully fitted above, so that a slim waist is still a vital necessity to glamor. Bouffant petticoats may appear in cocktail and dinner dresses, but for daytime the path is straight and narrow. Many of the new H- Hno or long-torso styles have pleated skirls, but these too are slim in effect, often being stitched part way down, to preserve the tubular look. Smooth Line Though bosoms are not exaggerated, n.s formerly, they arc still present and accounted for, and no boyish figures will be necessary to fit into the new clothes. The long-torso silhouette requires a smooth, unbroken line from bust to hips, achieved best by an all- in-one foundation which molds and smooths the midriff. Dresses look like .suits this spring, and suits look like dresses. Both hug the figure to the hipline, which usually is .accented by a belt or cuff—nnd woe to the lady who lias acquired middle-aged spread below the belt. The long-jacket suits have a new and fresh look, after several seasons of short curved jackets with nipped waistlines. Many are cut on riding jacket lines, others button from chin to hip line, but all are slim and meticulously fitted. Shorter Skirts Skirts are slightly .shorter, but qnly slightly. Fabrics nro lightweight and handsome, with miuiy silks that look like wools and wools that look like silks. Tim costume stifl is a top favorite in practically all collections, done in all fabrics, made to look like a suit when the jacket is worn, nmorgo a.s n cocktail or dinner dress when the jacket is removed. Navy is the big color, for, suits, dresses a nd coats, often with a fresh bit of white frosting in the form of starched or lacy collars. Although the Paris-inspired silhouette is the most important new theme, New York designers have adapted it to the American taste, Mr. and Mrs. Clair Miller and Mr. and Mrs. C. R.

New Blouses Add Top Style Interest By GAILE DUGAS NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK (NEA)—Because the top of the silhouete has gained such fashion emphasis this fall, blouses are getting imaginative neckline treatments and collars of many shapes and sizes. There's freshness, too, in the way detailing is used at the back as well as front of a blouse. The fill-in necklines and removable collars in the new blouses are real budget-savers for career and college girts since they permit a daytime-to-date transition. Fill-ins sometmies take the shape of a turtleneck gilet which, when removed, leaves a flatering boat neckline that's a background for pretty ac- cesories. Sailor collars and peaked-back collars add as much individuality as Wilson WSCS Sponsoring Breakfast The Women's Society of Christian Service of the Wilson Methodist Church is sponsoring a pancake breakfast at the church Jan. 21 from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. A menu of hot cakes, sausage, coffee and milk will be served those who attend. the new back treatments that often have narrow ,flat pleats set below yoke.

Also 1 day Dry Cleaning Service 3MfoMe 'L 'LAUNDRY-CLEANERS Keep Bag Under Control BJ- ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor One of the more vexing prob- j terns thai, faces a woman who wants j to be correct and still be reason- | able is the question cf what to do with the handbag. It seems to be eternally in the way, bumping intri things, being forgotten, stumbled on and kicked about. The old taboo still holds — don't put your handbag on the dining table. To avoid a lot of problems when dining out, accessorize in advance with n small envelope bag that, will rest quietly in Hie Jap, with gloves inside or through the handle. If you go from work or shopping to dinner or luncheon and still have a handbag with you. put it on the floor, under your chair. Leave it there. Don't fuss or dig in it during the meal. There are gadgets that become books to go over the edge of the table. In some localities, this is fine. Use your good sense, how • ever, and don't hans your bag where a waiter is sure to knock it off or at an occasion where it's bad taste. When you go to a party, leave i anything larger than a tiny evening bag in the room where you leave your coat. Take your handkerchief and cigarettes out and carry them • When you need to repair lipstick' you will,of course, go to the powder room anyway. On a bus or car ride, put tho bag, however big, in your lap and nold it firmly but lightly. Don't j juggle it or try to stuff it under ' the seat. A good trick for a working woman with an immense bag is to have a tiny Interior bag with wallet, lipstick, comb and cigarettes in it. Check the big bag and carry the Httle one where the occasion demands it. W.M. BURNS Insurance Agency We have some (food, well located homes In Blyhevillc for sale. Also Farm lands and farm loans.
