I.—More often than not. the so-called "elaborate coJffure turns out to be more practical for sports and vacation clays than simpler hair styles.

Certainly hers is the most:glamorous of all glamor bobs, p Those who have curly bangs seem "to .have the least trouble retaining their coiffure smartness through a day of swimming, golf of tennis -or even water skiing. Bangs are ' attractive when fmish- fures clown here is Mrs. Frederick Sigrlst's. The bangs are rathei short, just covering the top of her j forehead. Side .sections of hair are brushed smoothly upward and held in place with invisible hairpins. The sleekest, smartest coiffure in the 'Bahamas is, of course, the Duchess 5 - of Windsor's. The nl- ways fashionable wife of the Governor of the Bahamas parts her back hair in the middle, brushes it, upward into a neat roll all the way around her head. The suave 'little fabric cnlots of which she seems to be especially fond at the moment just cover the crown ol her head. Their edges are concealed by rolls of hair. Usually she puts a. jewelled clip on the front of the cnlot—just above her widow's peak. For evening, the Duchess lowers the roll at the back. leUiuii it cover the nape of her neck. At all times her hairdo is more severe than soft, more chic than j pretty.

And hero's a question that this correspondent never has been able to get answered in Hollywood: Even if we were able to represent Wall Street, where empires arc built and destroyed with ticker tape, is a complicated Institution. Stephen Longstreet. though, reduces the financial machinations of the Street to their simplest components in his latest book, -The Golden Touch" (Random House: $2.50). It is the story of dynamic Mike Seabrook and of a lot of ridiculous men who make careers otic of buying things they never really own The author of "Decade," in his latest novel, takes the Stree a make-believe game and running around in circles thai only make them dlw.ler. Mik« Is one of those "boy wonders" — not exactly a boy. but young enough to know better. His mother considers his spectacular career in Wall Street a dismal failure because he has no Icnowl- dge of life's fundamentals. He niys and sells furiously, engineers hady ventures. Yet he knows nothing about airplanes and steel and ships and grain.

Would it help to make South Americans admire us? Would you, for instance, think any more of England if the London studios began filming their conceptions of life In the United States? The chances are you'd think them pretty stupid to try to compete in that way with our own movie companies. If you're asked to see a London- made film, you'd want it to tell you something about England or the empire. And a "Mr. Chips," a "Citadel" or a "Pygmalion" would show you quite a bit- about the people and their way of lii'e.
