The sacks, the trapeze dresses, the harem skirts and-«U the other weird looking fashions that stared at us last year are gone. So are the "amusing" hats that never did amuse anyone but their wacky creators. In the place • of all the scarecrow outfits, with bows tacked on in odd places and skirts too short to sit down in comfortably, there are actually clothes designed to make women look pretty. The lines are soft and graceful, the colors are meant to be flattering, rather than startling. The hats are almost irresistible to any woman who loves pretty hats and whose eyes each spring are drawn to store windows. You can even take a man shopping with you this spring without fear of hearing any comments like. "How can you be sure it isn't a maternity dress. It looks like one." Styles this spring not only appeal to women, but they are the kind that make men say, "Now, that's the way a dress ought to look." So you needn't dread shopping this year. After the pavement pounding we women did last year trying to find a few clothes in which we didn't feel absolutely ridiculous, shopping is going to be a breeze. The designers have been kind to us this year. They've been good enough to remember that we're women and that we love clothes that simply underline that basic fact. A happy adoption for a homeless child is like the joy of Easter, Mrs. Marguerite Tandowsky, director of Children's Home Society volunteers told the Episcopal church women recently. "The new hope given families and children by the services of the Children's Home Society turns a tragic situation to a joyous occasion. There is nothing more inspiring than finding a right solution for parents and children through the family pro gram the Society carries on at the statewide level and through such local auxiliaries as Bonnes Meres, the Redlands chapter," she declared. One of the roles of the society's 13 branches throughout California is to interpret the Home Society's services to the com munity. In addition, auxiliaries such as Bonnes Meres, have been established in 137 cities, including 60 in Southern California, she said. "Our focus is on the child and finding a home which will develop character and security with loving parents," Mrs. Tandowsky explained. As a licensed adoption agency, the society offers help for children of every race, mixture, religion or physical condition. "But Competition Keen At A.C.B.L Spring Nationals Winslow Randall of Redlands,; president of the American Contract Bridge League, and Mrs. Randall are currently in Seattle, Wash., where the ACBL Spring Nationals are being played. The Los Angeles team of Lew-| is Mathe and Edward Taylor led with 879% points yesterday as the open pairs competition headed into its final two rounds. Close behind were John Crawford and Sidney Silodor of Philadelphia with 861 points. The starting field of 260 pairs was cut to 156 going into Sunday's final rounds. In the Vanderbilt knock-out Team-of-Four play, tne largest field ever to compete, 80 teams, was reduced to 19 who survived for play-offs today, tomorrow and Wednesday, according to word from Mr. Randall. Of the surviving teams, only two remain undefeated. One is the team headed -by B. J. Becker and the other is headed by Samuel N. Stayman. Seven teams are entering the last days of play with only one defeat. Of these seven, one is the Seattle team which knocked off the Miles. Jacoby, Solomon, Kantar and Fishbein team. r J MAKE f R1END5 If you can't u«e something a friend offers to give you it is usually better to say so frankly than to accept the gift and not use it. There is usually a tactful way of saying that you appreciate being offered something but for one! reason or another feel that someone else could make better use of it. the family unit is maintained wherever possible," she said, pointing out that 20 per cent of the cases are kept in the normal home, with counseling and assistance, rather than being placed for adoption elsewhere. By counseling new strength and new values often are conveyed to parents, while children get a new start. Of the natural parents placing children for adoption, approximately 80 per cent arc not married. The bulk of the other cases are total orphans and older children from homes torn by divorce or parents found to be unfit. In charge of the meeting was Mrs. Frank Babcock, president. The speaker was introduced by Mrs. B. E. Van Arsdale. The United Thank Offering program was discussed by Dr. Lucille Fostucdt of Palm Springs, who said (he collection for this purpose will be taken May 7, Ascension Day.
