12F--July 30, 1972 Sunday Gazelle-Mail ^,.....-- I- . Charleston, West Virginia--In Middle? You Can Go Either Way By Tommie Denny When you're sitting in your first class of the semester, look around you. What is the girl to the left of you wearing? Ah, the stylish layered look with a camel pleated skirt, a traditional tailored blouse and dark ·brown sleeveless tank top. Now look to your right. T h a t g i r l i s w e a r i n g jeans!--but she can be just as fashionable and "in" if she knows which combination to choose. So you're caught right in the middle, huh? What to do 1 * With many county schools adopting more lenient dress codes and college campuses already looking like a sea of blue denim, a gal's go-to- school wardrobe is almost doubled with the addition of pants. And jeans open up even w i d e r p o s s i b i l i t i e s , a s limitless as that trigonometry book you're staring at appears to be. BUT JUST as trigonometry becomes easier and more practical over a period of. time, so have jeans developed into a look all of their own. From the strictly jeans and T- · shirt days to today's look of jeans with bright borders wrapped with moddish belts and topped with a wide variety of shirts. Take your plain ol' blue denim jeans (the ones that started the revolution when o l d e r s i s t e r was a teenybopper with rolled up cuffs and saddle oxfords). In fact, take them right to the head of the class by adding bright flowery strips of trim to the bell" bottoms and wearing a color coordinated knit shirt. That's one look. If you're tired of the knit tops, get" a few of the baby doll-type coverups with lots of ruffles or a bikini top of bright, splash flowers... or create your own lawyered look with tailored blouses and tank tops. . . or even the new smocks and "jeans dresses" that many a gal is putting into her wardrobe. . . along with body shirts in oyster shell knits. ' OTHER JEANS that go to class with class can be striped, speckled, flowered or showered with your own e m b r o i d e r e d designs-a heart, a diasy. a cartoon character, or a message of importance (like "love") Bells are big (39 inches around or even more) and ring out a story of "newness." But you can take an old look (ever- so-slightly flared legs) and add a new dimension (roll 'em up to mid-calf). Peeking out from underneath are bold- colored argyle knee socks that stand in a "workman's" shoe of high-topped suede. ·Extend the layered look to your jeans wardrobe with knit tops over blouses, sweathers over b l o u s e s , or e v e n sweathers over sweathers. Cotton suede or wool plaid "shirt jackets" belted at the waistline bring it all together stylishly. Belts are usually wide, tied, sashed or slashed in colors that cut vividly across your middle. For the do-it-yourslef coeds, why not crochet or macrame your way into the political world of red, white and blue. Add a big, big donkey or elephant as a buckle and you autmoatically cast a fashion vote. TAPESTRY BELTS offer feminie appeal to the pants idea. And here's hoping you were lucky enough to pick up a hand-cut leather belt at this summer's arts and crafts shows--the wider the belt and the bigger the buckle the better. Another point popular with jeans enthusiasts is the free- for-all list of accessories that goes with them. Like tapestry shoulder bags with rope handles. . . suede drawstring handbags (large or small). . . canvas carry-alls with a touch of homemade embroidered artistry. * School days arc no longer golden ride days as far as dress is concerned, and Ann Simpson (left) and Cathy Thaxton are out to prove just that point. Ann sports the big, big 39-inch bell bottoms clenched at the hips with a wide leather belt. Cathy will be off to classes at Morris Harvey this fall in "Xolled up jeans atop argyle knee socks and ankle-high suede shoes. Her layered · look is brought together with a turtlencck under a short sleeued buttonup sweater and wool plaid shirt jacket. They are available at Frankenbcrger'sand the Village Wardrobe. County Health Training Select "Just the facts, ma'am/' And that's exactly what will be taught this week by school p e r s o n n e l a t a h e a l t h worskshop. Kanawha County Schools has been chosen as one of six- national centers to t r a i n school personnel to use a health unit on the respiratory, c i r c u l a t o r y and nervous systems. Emphasizing the IM \STIC MAN IS USED AS DEMONSTRATION MODKI. hlemcntary Students Study Effects of Drugs, Tobacco effects of alcohol, tobacco and drugs on the body, the workshop will be attended by eight, five-membeer teams.' "In these units' we don't preach to the students. Our aim is to give them as much f a c t u a l i n f o r m a t i o n a s possible--accurate, up-to-date a n d p r o v e n v a l i d w i t h s t a t i s t i c s , " said Mrs. Margaret Grizzell. Health consultant with the Kanawha County Schools. Mrs. Grizzell w i l l h e a d t h e s u m m e r workshop which will begin Monday through August 11. THE INNOVATIVE health program is broken down into three sections. This year's participants will study the lung and respiratory system. During the next two summers the heart and brain, respectively, will be emphasized. Each unit is designed for a particular grade level. Teachers who are trained this year teach the fifth level. Next year's participants will be sixth level teachers; 1974 participants will be seventh level teachers. Workshop trainees are committeed to teach the program within their schools, to train other teachers to use the model and to expand the program to other schools in their district. "Teachers particularly like the program because it in. . cqr.por.ates,. numerous, ii i .«( . . . . · . · , · . · : , i i i r.. t materials, such as tapes, movies and filmstrips. One of our most valuable teaching resources has been guest speakers," said John Santrock, associate superintendent o f i n s t r u c t i o n a l o p e r a t i o n s . " A g e n c y representatives speak on their fields and pass cut very useful pamphlets. Professional resource persons have included doctors, pharmacists, f i r e m e n , ecologists and policemen. Volunteers, such as these, have put a lot of m o n e y i n t o t h e h e a l t h program." Each workshop team will consist of a principal, two teachers, a school nurse and an administrator, such as one in curriculum. The eight teams in this year's workshop are from Huntington, Mart i n s b u r g , M o r g a n t o w n , Wheeling, Welch, Parkersburg a n d t w o f r o m Cumberland, Md. Local personnel were trained during three consecutive summer workshops in San Mateo, Calif. During the summer of 1969 personnel were trained to initiate the lung u n i t at Spring Hill Elementary School. The heart was piloted at Mound Elementary; the brain unit started last year at DuPont Junior High. .The California workshops were sponsored by the National Clearinghouse
