5E--Augu»t_27, 1972 Sunday C«« " ' "h»riMton. West Vlrginl* Society Belle Patented Wiper TARTAN PINWALE SMOCK AND PANTS Available at The Diamond Corduroy Big in Kids 'Fall Togs People are coming back down to earth this year and kids' clothes are coming right along with them. What's more natural than the plush, rugged feel of corduroy, or the rustic patchworks and plaids they comet in for fall? Big news are bright tartans. Plaids and checks have a w i d e range-- windowpanes, taltersalls. block plaids, bold houndstooth checks. Newest are tweedy plaids and corduroys, ribbed or ribless, with a heather look. The nostalgic feeling continues in prints that deceive the eye with the look of knit or needlepoint, embroidered ribbon stripes. Motifs tend to whimsical animals, flowers, vegetables, houses, trees. Colors have a mind and mood of their own as well. Bright and sassy goldenrod, apple red and pasture green offset the tranquil dusk colors -- chocolate b r o w n , smoky blue and deep purple. The clothes themselves are simple and unaffected. When big sister took to -the Army- Navy store for grown-up overalls, little sister wasn't far behind her with her own scaled down variety in durable corduroy, suspendered. buckled, snapped over a matching shirt. SWEATERS * ARE every- g where, over and under. Lay- j ·:·: ered over a man-collared shirt \ :;:· or over the perennial cotton j % t-neck. They go under jump- j :$ ers and vests and smocks with j ·:·: short sleeves to show a sweater-ribbed arm. Dresses relax with princess lines and quiet detail. They go to parties in soft and easy- care ribless corduroy, luxurious as velveteen. Little boys snuggle into no- rib quilted jackets with warm fleecy linings and a definite home-on-the-range air. Robust corduroy pants in prints and solids are standard fare from infant to big brother to papa. The return to simpler days and grandmother's ways is expressed best by the warm, rural connotation of corduroy, with its endless variety of ribs and prints. Corduroy for fall. . . it's only natural!

Black or Brown.:; Sizes 10 to 18. · :· By Lynn Reeves Birmingham News Writer BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-W- Before the windshield wiper there were disgruntled motorists and obstructed views. A society belle from Birmingham envisioned a- brighter day. It was in the winter of 1902 that Mary Anderson went to New York and was distressed at the plight of the street car driver. Back in those days a motorist went out on a rainy day with an onion, a plug of tobacco or a piece of carrot. Theoretically, the things were rubbed briskly over the windshield, leaving an oily film which prevented water from collecting. But the theo- ry left » hit t« he desired. When .she returned to Birmingham she made a drawing of a gadget she thought would do the job. A local company made a working model- a s i m p l e , manually-operated arm to remove snow, rain and sleet from thp glass of the modern electric motor car. It was patented under her name in 1903. but did not catch on u n t i l years later. Miss Anderson forgot about the invention. Miss Anderson died in 1953 at the age of 87, no doubt amused that her invention was found two-fold on millions of vehicles. shop mondays and fridoys 10 to 9 CANTRECE PANTYHOSE FIT SMOOTH won't wrinkle bag or sag GRACIE SQUARE POLYESTER KNIT SUITS...
