"If enough women decide they ,\ don't want their skirts real lonp k manufacturers will give them what" ever they do want," she said. It is sheer nonsense to thhn »>ai a designer can get in en ivory tower and dictate what the •ubllc wants. If the public revr-i; long skirt*, maniifaclurers 'w'ill change in a big hurry."

"If you've got legs that are worthwhile showing. W hy cover them up " they asked. They claim that the new fashion must have been started by some "spindly-shanked" designer and continued by "a lot of bow-legged or knock-kneed wo- I men who have nothing better to do than buy new clothes." The Andrews Sisters, popular singing trio, said they don't have any intentions of wearing long dresses. Patty Andrews said that they "do something to a crowci J'icss) new long skirts but .they'll wear them anyway to woman in four approved calf-lenlh skirts. / up by clothing manulac- Nine-Day Wait GOOSE BAY.
