i i V K I ;ac Berets Boom Back In Bonnie s Wake By LOUIS LABORDE-BALEN Associated Press Writer PAUt France (AP) "Bonnie and Clyde" has stood . the French beret industry on its -head. 'The Faye Dunaway movie has set a new style for women's . headwear, sending females all .wwer the world out In search of a , Jjeret "a la Bonnie,, i" The effect here, where most -ef the world's berets are made, , has been astounding. One beret manufacturer calls it a mira- file. , For, just last January, the Pau Chamber of Commerce, in its annual report, pronounced what sounded like an epitaph . for the industry. . , "After a 18 per cent decline in sales last year, sales of the hasque berets are going to be ; still worse this year," the report said. But then came Bonnie and production of berets is up 1,000 ppr cent. Crosnier, one beret maker, is now turning out 1,500 herets a day, instead of 200, its campaign to give men a taste for beret wearing. . "It was a total loss. Now, in two weeks, one film ha done more than all those millions, he said. That film, temporarily at least, has saved the French beret industry. During its peak years, up to the end of the first World War, the region counted 30 beret manufacturers. Last year, seven remained. The first blow to the industry was delivered by Turkish President Kemal Ataturk, who ordered his soldiers to change their headdress, the chechi, a sister hat to the beret, made in Pau., Styles in France changed; the beret' smacks of provincialism and, except for the basque country, berets are usually worn by the elderly and less monied classes. The French army helped out for a while when they made the beret a part of the uniform, but an end to the colonial wars and cuts in the armed forces have 1967 average. Laulhere, another led to a drying up of army or-manufacturcr, reports a daily ders. production of 8,000, up from 280 , The beret makers here hope a day last year. , ! the fad continues for a while "A couple of years ago," onejlongeF. astonished manufacturer said, Meanwhile, they're praying "all the beret makers got to- that some enterprising movie gether and spent millions of producer will dress his male francs to finance a publicity lead in a beret. ir ocicdtUoww Miss Deborah Bridget Dawson arrived Tuesday night for A brief visit with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.

I'm especially talking about those of us whose Dad is in his sixties or older. It's liar,! to Find 1 something for him, isn't it? A little idea occurred to me a couple years ago and I thought I should pass it on to you. (This can also be used for Mother's Day ) Are ou aware that there is such a tiling as three way and fourway telephone calls ia long distance? These are called con ferencc calls. Three or more people c an talk at omo. For instance, if your Dad lues in another city, you can pick up your phone and dial your long distance operator. Tell her that you would like to hae a three or four way conference phone com ei sat ion Give her your fathers number and at the same time, the numbers of your sisters and brothers who will be talking. Tins can be done een if two of the parties live in the same town. Naturally, this is going to cost more. So . . . BEFORE you place the call, get an estimate from the operator (and she will give it to you gladly) as to how-much the total cost will he. j I tried this once for my Mother. letting her talk with all her I sisters in three different towns 'at the same time. She was flab bergasted. I The operator will also be kind enough to give you a three-mm ule notice if you will ask for it. This is just a thought I wanted to pass along to those of you who are wondering what to give on this special day and want to surprise a parent. They will be ahsoutely overwhelmed. Mine were.
