Ever since interior decorators stopped being dictatorial in favor of encouraging homeowners to select furnishings with which they the homeowners would enjoy living, homes in general hav'e gained in personality. It took a strong woman, not so long ago, to fly in the face of matching three-piece living room sets and dining room appointments that just had to include a buffet, a china closet, a server, five straight chairs and an arm chair for the host. Perish and forbid any innovation! Today we borrow from the outdoors, if it pleases our fancy, and we (ind the light touch of wrought iron furniture captivating in city apartment dining alcoves.

Taffeta Pantalets Amuse Fashion Editors Who Are Getting Big Rush From Our City w j By MARGARET MARA Visiting fashion writers are seeing a plush-lined and generous New York under the careful she'pherding of the New York Dress Institute which invited them from far and wide to attend the 10th national press week that started Monday. Open-handed dressmakers, milliners and accessory manufacturers are playing hosts to the ladies at breakfast, luncheon, cocktails and dinner and in between they trek through countless showrooms where smart models parade the New Look. And that isn't all! Lavish gifts of costume jewelry, scarves, cosmetics, flowers and candy are handed around, thank-you-for-coming gestures by the members of the fashion houses. The writers, who represent newspapers, magazines and radio stations from nearly every State, Canada and Australia as well as European and South American countries, sat through seven fashion shows yesterday. Garment Center Gathering Five of the shows were gren at 498 7th Ave.', where the ladies of the press trod velvet carpets and sat for hours on gold chairs while mannequins rustled past in Jaffeta petticoats and dresses. x One of the amusing incidents was the excited exclamation in a multitude of accents from the deep South, the West and Down East that greeted the surreptitious showing of black taffeta pantalets under a daytime tissue crepe. The straight-legged ' undergarment, which had had a fluted flounce from just below the knee, was worn in lieu of a petticoat. Taffeta petticoats are being sold with ensembles, and one white with black dot dress showed a half-inch of bright red taffeta below the dress hem. Yesterday's exhibitors included Ben Reig, Hansen Bang, Foxbrownie, Joseph Whitehead, Anthonyv Blotta, International tNeckwear Fashions and Nettie Rosenstein who was hostess at dinner at Sherry's. Significant in the showings was the popularity of gray for Spring. Suits and dresses in pearl gray and smoke gray are being shown by nearly every manufacturer. Most effective is the agate taffeta of Ben Reig who showed a dress in agate gray rayon taffeta with a pleated jutting peplum. The skirt hem was lined with a horsehair dust ruffle. Navy is a strong favorite for the coming season in wools for suits, sheer crepes, georgeUe and chiffon for dresses. Foxbrownie favors the wool dress with taffeta bodice worn with a matching suit jacket. Hansen Bang's lounging and casual clothes Include something new in the ankle-length taffeta culotte and the voluminous house coat of shimmering platinum satin made with wide kimono sleeves.

DAVIS Society Editor It was Prom Time for Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School last week. The seniors held this auspicious event in the lovely Music Room of the Hotel Biltmore, Manhattan, just as the Spring grads did last year. It was a night for the boys and girls to remember. And although they probably won't need any reminders, the 100 couples all will have souvenirs which consist of an album of about 50 pictures taken at the dance. Each girl received a gold bracelet with a heart attached engraved "Loughlin Senior Prom, Jan. 9, 1948." THE ' PRINCESSES ALSO HAVE mementos of the prom. The Princesses are 12 girls selected by four judges Mr. and Mrs. John B. Hayes and Mr. and Mrs. James Dooley during the first dance of two sets. They were selected for their attractiveness, poise and vivacity. These young women receive ""purple and gold ribbons on which was printed in gold "Loughlin Senior Prom, Jan. 9, 1948, Princess," e distinguishing honor. The 12 selected were Helen Ryan, a Bryant High senior, escorted by Jim Sheehan; Nancy Coyle, a Mary Louis Academy senior, with Robert Auld; Mary Healey, a senior at Cathe- dral High, with James Carney; Joan Mathews, ; a Richmond Hill High grad, with Jack Becht; f Peggy Armstrong, a junior at Bishop McDon-4 nell High, with Frank Flood; Helen O'Reilly, it a Mary Louis Academy junior, escorted by ' John McVicker; Helen Seaman, a senior at Baldwin High, with Joseph O'Brien; Kathleen Princesses Chosen At Bishop Loughlin Shelly a qrad of Dominican Commercial High, escorted by Kenneth Kramer; Dorothy O'Con-nell, a Grover Cleveland High junior, with John Simansky, general chairman of the party; Mane Bogus, Our Lady of Wisdom Academy senior, with.

Valerie, of 216-34 118th Ave., St. Albans, was chosen Loughlln's Queen and was properly crowned and given a special souvenir, an engraved gold compact. She is a pretty blonde. . HER HAIR WAS DONE in an upswept fashion, adorned with gardenias. Her white marquisette bouffant gown had gold sequins trimming the waistline. The Queen wasn't the only girl wearing white, for we noted that Marie Bogus also chose white lor her prom dress. Helen Seaman was the only Princess in black. Aqua, yellow, fuchsia, blue, rose, pink and green were among the other favorite colors of the 12 honored girls. The 100 couples had a wonderfuh evening dancing to the tunes of Joe Carroll's Orchestra. John Simansky, general chairman, had on his committee James Carney, assistant chairman; Robert Auld, Joseph Colgan, Vincent Downing, William Doyle, James Dunn, Philip Geyer, Lawrence Helfrich, John Hyland, Arthur Lang, Robert Markart, Joseph O'Brien and Abraham Ward. And, of course, the committee couldn't have worked so successfully if it hadn't been for the Rev. Brother Bertrand Andrew, F.S.C., moderator. S311fep!

DEAR MARY HAWORTH I appeal to you for advice on my problem, which is a sudden overwhelming inferiority complex whenever I see my brother Bill, who is three years my senior and nas always treated me with the indulgent condescension usually accorded a harmless moron. He graduated from high school with honors and I graduated a year later (at a slightly precocious age) with even more honors. While he did well In college, I did even better, winning a beauty and popularity contest to boot. But wher5as his success thrilled me and I S'-fpraised him highly, my suc cess was never mentioned. Bill married a grand girl with a typical Irish wit and MarY ncrwonn temperament. I like her a lot but she affects me the same way he does. I am very happily married to a fine man, have two lovely children and much else to be thankful for. However, we are expecting Bill and Kay for a visit soon, after not seeing each other for two years, and I don't want my pleasure in the visit spoiled by this stupid complex. Doesn't Think It's Jealousy When our first child was born I allowed some of my joy to creep into my first letter to them, but their reply was so filled with gentle amusement that I felt like the ridiculously proud parents in cartoons, ' and thereafter in writing just briefly mentioned baby's health. Xew Uut they have become parents, their let- ters are hilarious' accounts of the Infant's precocity. We have achieved as great, if not greater, financial success than they, although material things have never been of prime importance to me. And Bill is such a fine character that I can't believe there is any petty jealousy or attempt to deflate my ego. Perhaps I am just hypersensitive where he is concerned. Thank you for any insight and help you may give me. E. G. Man's Attitude Is Competitive DEAR E. G. There is striving for supremacy here, but mostly in Bill's unconscious, I think. Your birth gave him no joy. Hence from earliest awareness you sensed a strong emanation of disapproval- from him. Bill's manner indicates a tacit general understanding in childhood that he was unmistakably his mother's favorite. Time to Discard Childish Rubbish This is my interpretation of the significance or causation of your so-called overwhelming inferiority complex in relation to Bill. And the cure consists in a thorough housecleaning of your feelings about him, a shake-up that is long overdue. So for advice: Discard as rubbish your old childish, awestruck idealization of him and aspiration to. wrest accolade from him. And do this by the sane device of appraising him through mature, objective eyes, in the light of experience, and seeing him realistically for what he is, namely: a smug, self-centered, competitive and ungenerous, rather shallow and insetititive person. The best way to make a hit on Bill is to be fully as self-satisfied, or call it self-accepting, as he is. M. H.
