A cross-section sound-and-fury poll by NBA Indicates that women In general don't like the long skirts and prefabricated hips the designers are offering this fall. It's a threat to California's "free and easy R'ay of life," the gals out there cry. "Ridiculous," eays short-skirted car-hop Pat Hawley or Beverly H1IU. Tall, blonde Caroline Kehl, UCLA art atudent sums up their arguments: "Why exercise to keep slim if you're going to pad your hips?" Texas girls are making an Alamo stand against sloping shoulders and heavy hips. The majority of Port Worth women questioned say they still want the square-shouldered, slim-hipped silhouette. None of these leg-o'-Button sieves for them. Eagerly confessing she welcomed a chance to speak up. Mrs. Mike Matties, well-dressed Fort Worth Chaplain is Speaker Before Osceola Club OSCEOLA, Ark..

A British ex-patriate, Mrs. R. G. Deltz, also interviewed In F\>rt Worth, made this observation: "The abrupt, fashion change Is typically American. It was planned and executed for American women who love to buy and buy." And it was a Dallas woman, Mrs. W. J. Woodward, who organized the "Little Below the Knee" club. Chicago Kills indicated a reluctant willingness to go along with fashion arbiters "a little way" in. lengthening skirts. But not all the way to the ankle. Mrs. Leon Mandel, voted one of j the nation's best dressed women, I says it's up to each woman to determine the skirt length most flattering to her. j Cleveland women are rallying behind social worker Lillian Schuler who charges that "the new fashions are designed to force women to buy complete new wardrobes." ; Mrs. Rene Banks of Cleveland says Paris is "leading us around by Ihe nose." Afler looking at new hats loaded with crowns, flowers and other gee-gaws, Mrs. Banks said vehemently: "Why I could do better mysel rummaging around in the attic." .vClevelan^. millinery designer MargaretVpbhn thinks the current • 1920 revivals show the nation is backing up on fashion instead of going forward. Elizabeth Luft, Cleveland Prc3S society editor, tried U> calm ner '• enraged readers, however. Style changes, she insisted, won't necessarily mean new wardrobes. Her comforting conclusion Is that by using resourceful tricks of changing shoulder pads and lowering waistlines and hemlines women can keep their last-season clothes from looking dated. In Dunuque, la., there's an organized stand to hold the old hemline. M. Eileen Maiers, society- editor of the Telegraph-Herald, says club women throughout the country will spear-head the revolt against Paris. Knoxville, Tenn., women ar« against the new fashion, says Carson Brewster who polled their opinions for the Knoxville News- Sentinel.
