Army. By GAILE DUGAS .VEA Women's Editor NEW YORK — (NEA) — How many pieces of luggage did you :ake with you on your last trip? Were you loaded down with three :ieavy eases you got as a gift 10 years ago for a birthday or anniversary? If you were, It's time for a look at what's happening with luggage. Far lighter weight, for one thing. Even 10 years ago, a woman's wardrobe case was so heavy empty that it wasn't easy to lift. Add clothes to this weight and she couldn't possibly walk from house to taxi without two men and a boy to handle the luggage And that wasn't all She needed m.ore than just one wardrobe case. It may have been impressively heavy but it wasn't planned to hold much. So she had to have a train case for her cosmetics and possibly a suitcase or another case in iddition. The new lightweight luggage means that a woman can easily carry her own case, if need be. And any woman who's been stuck at airport or railroad station with no porter about knows what this means. The new luggage Is considerate of you In other ways. Luggage designers have come to plan cases for certain periods of time. That is, one new case is designed to hold everything a woman needs for a two \veeks' vacation. Other pieces are similarly planned, whether for a weekend, a week or just overnight- And these new pieces are the ultimate in eHiciency. One new case, for instance, separates in two compartments. The top part you hang up for packing. This will hold up to eight dresses. The bottom part lies flat for packing shoes, accessories and cosmetics plus all the other needed odds and ends In the hanger section you can put four dresses, two jackets and skirts, a beach robe and a light, unlined coat .The flat section will take a good-sized cosmetic kit, six pairs of stockings, travel slippers and robe, lingerie, two bathing suits and swim cap, shorts, two blouses and sweater, flats and evening shoes. jewelr» scarves and handkerchiefs. Everything you need for a two weeks' period goes Into this moisture and dustproof, lightweight case. At The Hospitals Blytheville Hospital Dismissed: W. E.
