For Flattery, Vary the Veil By ALICIA HART KEA Beauty Editor Using as their touchstone a photograph of some well-known beauty in her middle years, many mature women go overboard and wear veils all the time. A veil Is a great aid. It can soften hard lines and disguise wrinkles. Worn well, it can make a severely dressed woman look as pretty as a bride. But a veil, like any fashion accessory, should not be worn all the time nor always in the same color or style. A good big hat with a soft brim can do what a veil does. Its dramatic lines can call attention away from a tired skin. It should not be worn with a veil. And most mature women should have at least one such hat in their wardrobes. A veil tied over or attached to a hat (one that pulls under the chin) Is the ruse most mature women af- Tweeds of Blue and Pink to Be Outstanding in The Easter Parade By DOROTHY ROE Associated Preu Women'! Editor NEW YORK (AP) — Vera Maxwell loves fabrics the way a horseman loves a thoroughbred or an engineer loves a bridge. This youthfully silver-haired de signer with big blue eyes and.self- effacing manner has built a successful career in the midst of the cut-throat competition of New York's hard-hitting garment industry on an artist's devotion to an ideal. The ideal: masterpieces in fabric. \ Miss Maxwell, who isn't a miss at all but .a folksy family woman with a grown son and a country home, started by working out her own fabric designs with domestic manufacturers. In recent years she has traveled the face of the earth in search of new fabric firsts. Irish Tweed Her most recent fabric safari took her to Ireland, where she discovered with delight the artistry of the Irish peasants who weave into their tweeds the colors of the barren hills of Donegal and the misty mountains of Connemara. Absorbed in her quest, Vera visited the thatched cottages where one room is devoted to the mechanics of living, the other holds the loom, and the one good light burns far into the night as the man of the family weaves exquisite tweeds destined to be worn by women of New York and Paris, San Francisco and Caracas. Selecting each piece of fabric in the place where it was made, the triumphant Vera returned with a collection of some of the most beautiful tweeds ever made into a suit or a coat, and made them into her own kind of easy, distinguished outfits for her current spring collection. She liked best the pale, misty blues that the Irish know how to achieve best, and a strawberry pink, gay as a colleen's smile. These she is now showing in a group of coats, suits, dresses and ensembles destined for the Easter feet. This plan should be varied. A coarse fishnet veil with a tailored hat, one that goes just under the nose, can dramatize eyes and make a suit as youthful as a grown woman need desire. A red veil is an idea'some women foolishly pass by. Its warm color puts color in the face. This veil should be fine, almost net, and without decoration or fancy weave. It will put a rosy glow around the whole head. For cutting down on jowls and chin wrinkles, a Veil that goes around the face rather than over is a sound idea. It'll have a quaint look, much like the hats and dusters of the early days of the auto-| mobile. Veiling is cheap. Replace It often. Buy a lot and experiment in front of your mirror with styles and colors. Vary the diet and sometimes, just for fun, go without. Parade. Blue and Pink Miss Maxwell understand! the kind of clothes that American women like and need. So she makes simple, casual outfits that can go traveling, to the office or on a country weekend with equal aplomb. She combines a straight tweed coat with a matching wool jersey dress to make a costume endlessly useful and always effective. She does her coats both straight an* fitted, varies collars, pockets anl sleeve, lengths, but retains the classic simplicity that has become a signature. Miss Goodrich Entertains" GEOClub ' Miss Vera-Goodrich was hostess last night to members of the QEO Club. She had as her guests Mrs. Tom Little, Jr., and Miss Nora Simpson. Bridge winners were Mrs. Joe McHaney, high, Mrs. Johnson Blackwell, second high, and Miss Simpson, bridgo. A salad course was served by the hostess during the games.
