24 THE VANCOUVER SUN: Sat, Feb. 4, 1356 SHOPPING GUIDE Penny Looked "F"-Like Once By PENNY WISE I should think that a lot of you middle-aged gals, are, like myself, thinking back to the days when WE had that "f" look, and I hope you've all decided that once was enough. I know that even if our lovely Marie Moreau hadn't come up with the good news from Paris that Fath is going to let us go on being women, regardless of Dior, I for one was going to stick out for the few curves I have, come hell, high water, Dior, and a misplaced waNtlino. Now, of course, Fath is a woman, so that accounts for her , taste in feminine lines, no doubt; but it makes me wonder what this fellow Dior has against men to have the temerity to try to flatten us gals out like undernourished neurotics, I guess it was back around 1927 or so that the fashion dictator of the day decreed that the female should be flat in front, with no hips and a waistline in the neighborhood of her thighs. Well, that was easy for me; I was a natural heaven knows, and I stayed that way for about 15 years after the other gals all ji started doing intriguing ;? things to their sweaters. ' Finally, by dint of downing a . pint of cream every day, work- ing days instead of nights, stopping doing the Charleston J (except at private parties), abandoning tennis, mountain-& climbing and running after S: busses, I achieved the plea-tf nantly plump proportions that 'c now grace my bones 37, 27, ;: 37 and I hope to keep them for 1 life, or maybe even add a half I j inch herev a wrinkle there, or a J. modicum of cushioning on the :; derriere. k l- Mind you, the young gals J today will diet like crazy to $ unsweater themselves, and I suppose the price of uplifts & will drop 236 per cent over- & night. What do we get in that line now, pray: the "V- V flattener"? What people like $ la Munroe will do, I can't $ imagine; we'll probably get G. Gavbo back, or maybe v Grace K. will give up her Prince and go on with her ; movie career, she never being one to bother about whether ;i she bulged or not, preferring to act, praise be. Insofar as the shorter skirts go, that's okay with me so long $ as they don't start featuring that most peculiar looking part of a woman the knee. I am blessed with a pair of nether j$ extremities that can withstand exposure well up the calf-line, and that is the Plimsol line insofar as legs go, I think. Vn less you're Grandma Dietrich, of course. Haven't quite the face for these new hats either, alas except a very, very large one. But somehow that hardly seems the thing to wear while sashaying around the food stores or giving the latest can-opener the once-over. Still, they're far and away better than the cloche. Can you remember that atrocity and how you felt with it pulled well down over your shingled scalp, your ears, your eyes, and two-thirds of your nose? You can probably recall the tricorn too! I never, never, never, never look askance at ANYTHING any female might choose to wear; I know it'll be only a matter of time before she gets back lo normal. Which leads me to ask; what IS normal? I know- that when I was in Russia the very few women who did appear in a hat wore something so absolutely ridiculous that I figured at first they were doing it for a joke. Then I took a look at my own hat in my hotel room, and wondered just upon whom the joke was. -I've a hunch that M. Dior Is sitting around in his crowded back room splitting his sides laughing as his scrawny 1956 models trot out on the double to startle the eyes of all the sugar daddies and their lovelies who fill his salon day after day, once the openings are over. Well, Christian, have your fun, but don't expect most of the women in Vancouver to give up their curves, their femininity, or their men. Am I right, gals?

They do not always think that they are right. j Parents of past eras had no such misgivings. They knew they were right because they were parents and they acted i accordingly. How often have you heard a modern young parent say, "I wish I ' knew what to do. I am never sure that I am acting rightly." Another marked change in the family itself is the greater co-operation of the father. It wasn't too long, ago since the father felt it beneath him to have anything to do with the children. That was the mother's task. He shouldered the obligation to see that the family enjoyed shelter and every material benefit. But he washed his hands of the children except to look at them with pride or punish them if their sins were greater than the capacity of the mother to handle. Today, as no one needs to be told, things are different. Many women work outside the home, either from necessity or choice. This makes it obvious that someone has to help with the burdens of the home and children and since domestic help is at a premium, the role falls to the father and he also sits in on disciplinary problems. It wouldn't be possible for any parent or any human to be right always. So perhaps it is all to the good that modern parents feel discouraged, feel confused and bewildered. This prevents them from being so self-satisfied as to stifle all progress and improvement. and I went together. I loved me. We planned to get married as soon as he imished college. When he finished he was offered a job in another city and took it. He came home for occasional vis its and I noticed a change in him almost immediately. After several months of this, I asked the trouble and was informed he "wanted out." I pretended to understand, and haven't seen him since. I'll never try to win him back, but my problem is how to forget him. I try to keep busy, have joined a few clubs and go out with my friends, including boys. It's been seven months and nothing interests me, D.C.. ANSWER.: How about leaving the city and getting a job elsewhere?
