Interesting Ideas on Post-War Clothes Given by Wholesale Dress Queen By ADELAIDE KERR Associated Press Writer i NEW YORK, Oct. 23.-Amerlca's wholesale dress queen foresees new post war era In clothes influ enced by global thinking and econ omy. "Our thinking will be global after the war," said Nettle Rosen stein as she sketched her Idea of 1950 clothes. "Instead of getting ready to spend a few weeks down south, you'll probably be getting ready to winter In India or China, Designers will have to know what clothes are suitable for trips like that and naturally the clothes they make will reflect Ideas from those countries. "Our clothes will be further In- fluenced by global economy. We know now that we can't be very rich and prosperous when other sections of the earth are very poor. The economic pattern is too closely Jn tcrtwlned. So clothes will be In fluenced by what is going on all over the world. What Mrs. Rosenstcin thinks about clothes Is news to women and to the fashion world. For Nettie Rosenstein has matched her wits and technique to three different eras and three different types of clothes-making in New York, and rung the bell three times. She was born Nettie Rosencrans in Austria, but grew up in uptown New York where her father owned a dry goods store. She be gan to make clothes when she was a little girl. She spent her 'teens In the millinery shop of her sister, married Saul Rosenstein, and mothered two children. Then Nettie Rosenstcin embarked on the first stage of her famous career, She opened a dressmaking es tablishment on the first floor of her brownstone flat in the days when ladles had their dresses made to order and whipped that business up to such a point that it overflowed the house. The day a customer brought a buyer marked her en trance Into the wholesale trade and the second phase of her career. In the early SO'a she opened a swank wholesale house on New York's West Forty-seventh Street and turned out sleek, worldly suits and frocks selling from $100 to $400 each. Mis. Rosenstcin realized thc"8et- ting no longer existed for the kind of clothes she had been designing, so she designed clothes for the setting which existed. She stopped using Imported materials and pure silks, which she- could not get any way, designed her dresses to suit the times, slashed her prices in half and sold four times as many units. Realizing that the' real jewels which used to accent smart, simple dresses were in storage vaults during the war, Mrs. Rosenstein took one more hurdle and designed gold plated, sterling silver costume jewelry to take their place.

A nine o'clock curfew for girls under 18 has been i suggested by social welfare organizations here, ALL KINDS OF SLIPPERS BUT FEW COUPONS Britons Hold Tickets Too Precious to Go for Luxury Footwear By DENISB DALTROKK Canadian Press Staff Writer LONDON, Oct. 23. Not for a long time have London's West End shops had such an attractive dis play of shoes for house wear as today. Slippers of cut felt in bright shades of red, purple and green with open toes and heel straps cost about $8.75. There ore others with hlfth fronts made of quilted rayon with each piece of quilting embroi dered with tiny flowers. They are priced at the equivalent of $5.18. But it is the requirement of five coupons rather than the money tbat deters people from buying them, After all fancy slippers are a lux ury especially when comfortable, but perhaps not quite such dainty ones, can be made at home for $2.25 and no coupons required, Some shops sell fluffy soles and give directions how to crochet san dal tops on them, or how to make them out of felt, which can be bought without surrendering coupons. Ordinary walking and afternoon shoes require seven coupons now and the low heeled shoes are prac tically all made with wooden soles. Some have small strips of leather at the toe and down the sides of th sole while others have the sole slit each stds of the ball of the foot to give more flexibility and prevent the wood from cracking wnen walking. RAYON PLENTIFUL Renovating a dress with a con trasting material is a popular method of freshening up an old frock and thus saving coupons. A checked yoke on a plain dress is a popular way or a couple of sets of contrasting collars and cuffs make a dress appear a little different and fresher. Shops have a zood display of rayon and woollen materials of Surprising quality for the fifth year of war. Printed rayons, as supple as pure silk cost about $3 a yard woollen materials and check suit ings run about $4.50 to $5.60 a yard. Lace, too, la still in good quantity though there has been a heavy demand on it. It is couponless and is used chiefly by brides for their wedding frocks, although lace blouses and trimmings are patronized. The price of lace is about $6 a yard. , B.B.C.

"She does not bother to use her vote. If she does, she usually votes as her husband docs." Her words were hardly in print I before housewives were up in arms Newspaper columnists went to bat and a flood of letter inundated publications of all creeds. It be came so stormy editorials also took the woman broadcasters and the B.B.C. as well to task. "I challenge this view of the av erage housewife as a lowbrow her metically sealed in kitchen interests," balked Amy Temple, Dally Mail columnist, taking up cudgels on behalf of the "wronged women. "Housewives have already been roused to a sense of citizenship The war has done that What mat ters now Is that they be treated as awake and intelligently interested, not talked down to." Carrying the argument a bit far ther a colleague, Milllcent Pleydell Bouverie, wrote: , "I do not believe that the house wife does not care what is taking- place around her. She cares enor mously, but women are very thor ough in anything they undertake and most of them feel that unless they can take a real, whole-heart ed and active interest in things out side their own home, these things art better left alone. "The only reason why women ap pear to care a twopenny damn is because no one has In the past cared a twopenny damn about. them." Typical of letters received by newspapers was this one to th r J Daily Herald: "The housewife knows what l.-J going on outside her home all right considering she is often out at worl- all day. Listen Miss Dunbar! ThH part-timer has often three or fou: little children to get ready fod school; then dash out to get th old mans dinner, end come hi and cook it, and then dash off t work. She then comes home to d the housework and washing and prepare for the next day's food The very idea!" Things got so bad that Miss Dun bar in private life Mrs. A. C Webb of Twickenham, mother oi two children had to do a lot of tal explaining to get herself out of hot water. "I used the wrong word," she la mented. "What I usually say is We are a dunderhe&ded lot, aren' we?' And this usually gets a laugh It was In that sense that I use the word 'fathead.'
