8E--Srpi. 3. 1972 Sunday Gasettp-Mnil -Chsrlwton, Wwt Virginia- Designer's Touch Create a Suite With Room Divider or Screen By Connie Shearer Suit yourself with a suite. And it can be done easily with room divider or screen. You have a choice of styles in the screen market today and it's a sure and simple way to give a room a special touch, cover the area you didn't have time to get in order and make one room seem like a small suite. IF YOUR TASTE is Chinoiseric. and that's a very vogue taste to have, invest in an Oriental screen. You may choose one of the elegant, very expensive ones or you may find just what you need in a discount or department store with a very nominal price lag. Choose a "Chinesey" lamp and Ihen pick up one of the Oriental patterned throw rugs which are flooding the market today. Let's pretend you've chosen these pieces for the master bedroom. In so doing you have separated the sleeping quarters from a small office away from the office, or sleeping quarters from a private TV room or from a wee snot to have coffee in the morning. The nice parl is you have taken only mere inches of space to create a greal effect. A "K" TT IF YOUR LIKES run toward the Spanish, try the same treatment, with a Mediterranean styled room divider--maybe a lace-patterned wrought iron one. Add a small bunching table with wrought iron legs or a mirror in a Spanish-style frame and separate the living room from the dining room. Again you have used only a few inches of precious space. There's a little of the decorator in all of us if we just use our imagination and good taste.

Journals Bowing To Libbers Beset By Schizophrenia By Joyce Egginton The London Ohserrrr NEW YORK--"All things considered, she had made a perfect rape victim. Better she, everybody seemed to think, that somebody else who might not have taken it so well. . ." So began a recent short story in a popular American women's magazine. The same issue contained a survey on the effect of the Women's Liberation Movement and a discussion by Dr. Benjamin Spock on whether girls should be raised like boys. It also carried four pieces which could have come from a women's magazine of 'id years ago: ''How to Run a Kitchen," ''How lo Knit Those Fabulous New Sweaters", "How to Make a Perfect Meat Loaf" and "How to Have an Enviable Complexion." This typical contents list shows the schizophrenia which is besetting the mass-market magazines as they try to lune into Women's Lib. They have come a long way in the two years since a hundred militant feminists "sat in" at the offices of Ladies Home Journal for II hours, protesting that (he magazine's entire emphasis was lo relegate women to an inferior role. THIS DEMONSTRATION of March, 1970, was not only a landmark in the Liberation Movement, it was a turning point in editorial policy for the nation's seven leading women's magazines which have a monthly circulation of 40 million. At first, editors regarded the feminists as a lunatic fringe. "Turn yourself off, baby. If you don't like the magazine, don't read it." one male executive told a demonstrator at the Ladies' Home Journal. Soon the Journal-probably the most conventional of the seven--was publishing a \vhole section by the feminists, had changed the tone of many of its articles and had hired the consumer advocate Ralph Nader to write a monthly article on te subject of his choice. Typical of the new Nader columns was one on how women get cheated on pensions because they usually live longer than men. The Infest issue of (lie .Journal carried an article mi how much pay a hose- wife is wordi (more t h a n she gels) and advises renders to tackle their husbands on the subject: "It he's an Incorrigible male chauvinist who wouldn't he caught dead with a wet rag in his hand, then the new balance must he achieved financially. . .if he won't lighten your load, he should pay you what you're worth." The same magazine publishes an explicit description of the functions of (he female organs, taking the mystery out of gynecology, plus advice on dealing with unscrupulous door-to-door salesmen. These are sandwiched io tween the f a m i l i a r style of articles on "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" f T h e answer is always ypsl. "What to Do About a Six'Year Old who si ill Wets His Red" and "How to Make More (Or Loss) of your Bosom". A lot of the taboos have been broken these past two years. The mass market magazines no longer shy away from adultery, veneral disease and homosexuality. Margaret Mead, the anthropologist, con- ducts an advice column in Rcdbook where she has frankly discussed among other topics, incest. Medical men now tell women readers that it may be healthy to masturbate. The current issue of Cosmopolitan, aimrd at a young, sophisticated readership, has a long article on lesbianism which examines "the avers that "more women than you'd suspect have had one or more episodes of lesbian lovomak- ing in their lives", and goes on to describe some of them. The old suburban morality is rapidly disappearing from women's magazines. Right no longer triumphs at the end of every piece of fiction. The stereotype "other woman" in short stories has ceased to be the tough careerist, threatening the marital peace of a sweet little girl who stays at home, b a k i n g brownies and p r e t t y i n g t h e chintz slip-covers. The hcroiiif may now be somebody's mistress or a victim of rape. "All things considered, she had made a perfect rape victim"--How can the reader resist reading on? SOME OF the changes are self-consciously experimental. The latest Redbook has a beauty article entitled "How a Working Woman Finds Time to Look Great". It reveals the cosmetic secrets of a 24-year- · old career girl in Cincinnati -- ' techniques which can be cop- ' ied by any reader. Only the drawings and mention of a "natural style' 1 for her "tightly textured hair" reveal that the subject is black. The same issue faces up the the problem of white parents passing on their racial prejudices to children and. self-consciously again, spells black with a capital "B" and white with a small "W". Politics have at last found their way into the women's magaz'nes. and there is much more practical advice than 'here used to be on carpentry, plumbing, income tax and money management. Women politicians arc replacing film stars as popular subjects of f e a t u r e articles. Betty Frie- dan's face, warts and all. is often photographed alongside her monthly women's lib article in McCall's. Nine years as« in her book T h e F e m i n i n e Mystiqn e (which continues to he the Bible of the Liberation Movement) Mrs. Cor Ms, as she prefers to %« known S ITrleAan lambasted America's popular woman's magazines. Picking (Ironically, it now .seems, upon McCall's) she stated: "The world ( h a t emerges from this big. pretty magazine is young and frivolous, almost child-like: f l u f f y and feminine: passive: gaily content in a world of bedroom and kitchen, sex, babies and home. The magazine surely floes not leave out sex? The only passion, the only pursuit, the. only goal a woman is permitted is llir pursuit of a man. "H is crammed full of food, clothing, cosmetics, furniture and the physical bodies of young women, but where is the world of thought and ideas, the life of the mind and spirit?" Like other popular women's magazines, McCall's is schizophrenic. It still goes for gossipy boudoir features about Jacqueline Onassis's alleged insistence upon a separate bedroom and Princess Anne's alleged arrogance. lee street at hale 71.37 PHONE SAVINGS THAT GOTO YOUR HEAD sinoo WPERM.
