Th»« eomtortlng new« eomes cm Gilbert Adrian, vhose dress eatloru havt been worn by most ollywood (lamer queens. "I think that American women av« outgrown any 'looks' that ight ba put over on them," hf emsrked. "If there Is any nota- « style In 1952 It will be the rysUlltzaUon o! all the things hat American women have found radical through the years. "After all, American women lead much different life from Euro>e»n women. That la why they annot follow European styles. h« American woman Is active; drives a car, takes part In x>rt« and travels a great deal 'herefor*. her clothes must be treamllned so they can be packed or travel and uncluttered EO they •on't get in the way. Hem Line Remains 'I predict the hem-Hue will remain where it is—[rom 13 to 14'.4 nches from the floor, or' about n the middle of the calf. Ex|i«ri- nce proved that is the best length, shorter skirt Is unflattering, and longer one is unwieldy." "What about the plunging nsck- ,ne?" I asked, somewhat avidly. "That will continue to be a mater of taste, as it always has," ie replied. "Women who can and nt to wear « low neckline will do so; others will not. There is nothing new about decolletage; women have been using It for cen- uries. It was merely brought Into he limelight when many women n television used it. because the camera focuses attention on the upper part of the body." Low Neckline* Retract? Does he, as a designer, resent t when a low neckline detracts Tom his gowns? "Not In the least. Sorne women can look very attractive that way." Adrian designed gowns at MOM n the glamor days o( Oarbo, Searer and Crawford. He recently re- -urned there to put on a fashion show In "lovely to Look At." When saw htm in his scented salon, he was surrounded by bolts ot cloth aiid preparing for his own showing of spring fashions. The designer has long coiubattert Parisian dictates and was an opponent of the late, unlamentcd "New Look." He remarked: 'The French were out of the running during the war years. When the »ar wai over, they tried focut attention on themselves. They threw out everything we had ? ound practical over the years and Bubetituted skirts that reached to the ground, padded and drooping dre&sej. No "New Look' "It was a clever promotion, but American women will not fall for >uch a scheme again. They cannot afford to completely make over 'heir wardrobes. And they will not jo for fashions unsuited to modern living. We have weeded our fashion garden." . Will the New Year bring any fashion changes for men? "There will be further advances in summer and sports wear, making them more comfortable and colorful," he replied. "But I don't think there will be any changes in the standard uniform of the business euit," Coming Events 'fhurtdaj Mary Martha Class of First Baptist Church has potluclt supper meeting at 7 p.m. at the home of Mrs. Adolph Hcinlcke.

NEA Staff Writer A divorcee writes: "I am engaged to be married, but I am almost afraid to go ahead, as in the hvo years since my divorce I have come to realize that I could probably have held my first marriage together, if I had not Jet my pride, my temper, and hurts shove me into a divorce. What chance does a woman who wasn't" too bright about her marriage have of making a second marriage n success?" That depends on the jvorrian, and what she learned from her 1 experience. Judging from your letter U sounds as though you have every chance of making a happy second marriage. Why? Because you have matured in the past two years. You have grown \ip enough so that you can see some of the blame for the marriage failure was yours. What is more, you are honest enough to admit It. Adult Altitude Augers Success With that kind of adult attitude, you will undoubtedly work much harder to make marriage -work with your second husband than you did with your first. You have also found out how foolish it is for a woman to 1 let pride nnd temper drive her to the divorce courts. Certainly you should never make that mistake again. So have happiness. Don't be ashamed of your pasl mistakes, but be jirouci that you have learned from them and that you need never make the same mistakes again, That is the courageous attitude to take toward living.
