There's a Fur For Every Budget By DOROTHV ROE Associated Press Fashion Kilitor If you cai't afford a mink coat^there, little girl, don't cry. Either Dorothy, known ,as designer of .some of Ihe world's most fabulous furs, says there's a smart fur coat to fit any budget— and It doesn't hnve to be Imitation mink. Says she: "Our alert young career girls nowadays don't want to look like their mothers, In mink. They want to pay for their own fur coats, and they want them young and gay. They prefer a bleached muskrat coat or one frankly dyed red or green, to one of the so-railed 'mink-dyed' variety They're clever, because a dyed muskrat never looks like a mink, anyway." Among budget-priced furs available today in sleek, youthful styles says Miss uoroihy, are: American broadtail (processed lamb), clipped fox, American nutria, sheared opossum and, of course,.muskrat. In her.fall collection Miss Dorothy showj such things as a greatcoat of clipped fox dyed mint green and lined In red taffeta—as right for city streets as It is' for the football stadium. A little spencer Jacket'of nutria has a matching beret and muff, for endless uses. The Jacket may be worn separately with a tailored wool suit or coat. And the beret may be crushed into various shapes to suit the moot! of the wearer Miss Dorothy, whose own home m\ ,, tath " la!s and bl3 '*ets, thinks all furs have a place In the current fashion picture-and that all can be beautiful and useful if they don't try to Imitate something else. Says she: "During the last war, all the housemaids wanted to look like their mistresses, and bought mink with their war factory earnings.
