Pockets Are a Girl's Best Friend, Say Fashion Designers By DOROTHY ROE AP Women's Editor . NEW YORK (AP) — Pockets are a girl's best friend, say two fashion designers whose ideas change the look of American women's clothes each season. They are Adele Simpson and Mollie Farnis, both of whom previewed their spring collections on. the opening day of New York's current week of showing for the visiting fashion press. A woman needs pockets for change, cigarettes, handkerchiefs, glasses, lipstick and shopping lists. But up to now most high-style fashions have ignored this basic need. All Slzw Mrs. Simpson and Miss Parnis, however, are correcting the situation this spring. Both show pockets of all sizes, shapes and descrip- Sew-Simple For Tots 8093 mot. • 4 yi By Sue Burnett ITE, 1-YARD This dainty little three piece outfit is wonderfully easy to sew.

As the diminutive Mrs. Simpson remarks: "This is an age of pockets. In order to look well, women must feel comfortable and easy in their clothes. They like to stand with hands in pockets, they like to nave pockets in which to carry small belongings that get lost in the bottom of a handbag. They want and need functional clothes .for ease of living—skirts with room for walking or for getting in and out of taxicabs, suits that turn into cocktail or restaurant dresses with the removal of the jacket—and enough pockets to hold their minor accessories." Miss Parnis, favorite designer of Mrs. Eisenhower, shows envelope pockets on smooth, wearable, understated shirtwaist dresses for spring, and recommends the shirtwaist outfit for every hour of the day. She explains: Clothes Feel Good, "Women don't want to look overdressed or regimented. They want clothes that make them feel good, and that don't have a lot of gadgets and trimmings that need constant adjustment. They want to look smooth, well-put-together and contemporary, but never faddish. They adapt today's fashions to their own tastes and activities, individualize them with their own accessories. And they like pockets, because pockets add to the ease of living." Mrs. Simpson stresses the long- torso look in both suits and dresses for spring, and is careful to explain the type of foundation garment that should be worn with them—an all-in-one combination that smooths and lengthens the midriff, lifts and rounds the bust, gives the silhouette that long, unbroken line so important to the new styles.

Ruth Millett Don't Try To Regain Love of Man A twenty-year-old girl who has had the young man she planned to m a rry taken away from her by another girl wants to know how to get him back. My answer is: Don't try. If an- o th e r girl • can take him away from you before marriage, what makes you think that someone else couldn't take him away from you after marriage if you were unlucky enough to get. him back? The man a woman has to chase and knock herself out to hold onto is sure to give her more grief than happiness if she puts her happiness in his hands. Sure, a girl can often hook a man who doesn't want to be hooked or get back a man who has tried to get away, but after she gets nim she has to spend a lifetime trying to hold onto him. The women who go through life secure and serene aren't the ones who plot and plan how to get a man who is trying to get away They are the women who are smart enough to choose the man who chooses them. Then from the start the man knows that he is the pursuer—not the pursued. And that makes a whale of a difference in his attitude. His wife isn't the girl who finally caugnt him and who is willing to White's January Event Now Going On! Have you been to White's this week?
