How Little Girls Do Glow In New Wool Winter Coats LITTLE GIRL CHARMER — The "Bishop's Coat" by Childcraft in all-American diagonally patterned wool is styled with raglan shoulders and ruffled cuffs in a "Sundcry-best" manner. The gathered full skirt from a high-line yoke adds much-needed dimensions to their precious figures. Let-down hem grows with her years. Buying a little girl's winter coat is one of the most imp o r t a n t wardrobe investments, that must satisfy two points of view—the young fashion-plate's love of new styling and Mother's firm notions about the intrinsic virtues of warmth and durability. Here's a fashion check-list for children's coats, as distinctive as their personalities, that will result in a mutu a 1 agreement of choice: A. Complement color to skintone. All youngsters love color, look their best in lively tones. However, while adults can cater to every fashion color whim using make-up to change complexion tones, special care is needed in selecting colors most suitab 1 e to children's natural skintone and shining hair. B. Fur trims act like magic! A little girl really blooms when a tiny touch of fur snuggles her chin. It's that lovely natural sheen against live 1 y wool that does the magic trick. This year, fur of all types, from mouton to mink, lends a soft glow to many youthful, dressy coats. C. Favor fuller silhouettes. Most flattering styles for undefined contours, whether thin or rounded, are the double- breasted and generously cut lines in flares or pleats. Fit should be comfortably easy, lending a charm of subtle shaping. For the baby roundness of knee-highs, favori t e line is the high bodice, with skirt perkily jutting out. D. Choose wool for healthful warmth and durability. For generations, Mother's bas i c stipulation has been for a "winter coat of wool." No fiber matches the healthful, natural warmth of all-American wool, its sturdy durability and l sf . c . /jr M? n _ Con ? m i" ee This Week Feted With Steak Dinner Members of the Pulpit Supply Committee of First Christian Church and their wives were entertained Wednesday evening with a charcoal sleak dinner at the lake home of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Skidmorc.

There's no restraint, no locked-in feeling with flexible wool, which breathes with the body through its natural air spaces, li k e pores in the skin. Because of its depth, wool retains -all the fine marks of tailoring—rarely if ever do the seams rip, pucker or lose their grip. The natural wool fiber can absorb up to 30 per cent of its weight in moisture with o u I feeling damp or clammy—providing an important safeguard to little ones caught in a downpour of rain or a snowstorm, E. Grow-ability. American manufacturers have provided for an extra year of wear, and often two, through a built-in growing scheme to cope with this fast-sprouting generation. In children's size ranges, hems and sleeves and the i r linings have a generous turnover for letting down. In some cases, this coat growing to fit can be merely pulling a thread and pressing. With the bouncy line wool fiber, a quick s'eaming eliminates telltale marks of yester-year's hemline. Beware Credit System Pitfalls, Says Senator CHICAGO — The American credit system, says Sen. Paul H. Douglas (D-Ill), is a which there are many pitfalls for the unwary consumer. He has been exploring this wilderness. The senator has proposed would help right the wrongs he has found. It would require agencies extending credit to disclose the finance charges. Douglas discussed the pit falls of the credit syst e m recently when the Senate Subcommittee on Production and Stabilization was in the ci t y conducting a hearing on h i s } rrr Shaped Sheath Pure Flattery By ANNE ADAMS A superbly shaped sheath— the most elegant way to be noticed by day, at dinner, on a date.

He cited some statistics: At the end of 1959 Americans were in debt 183 billion dollars—some 131 billion dollars of this in mortgages and 52 million in consumer credit. By the end of this year, consumers will be entangled in an estimated 200 billion dollar credit web. During 1959, 88 per cent of the bankruptcies in the United States were family bankruptcies. Sen. Douglas said he and his supporters are not opposed to consumer credit. "But we do say that the buyers and borrowers are entitled to know how much they are paying for the credit," he said. Douglas has found that interest rates as high as 100 to 160 per cent a year are being paid by many consumers. Many are not aware of the add-on charges and camouflaged terms in the contract. "Instead of telling the customer what he has to pay, he's told only what he pays a month and how many months he must pay it," he said. "Then there is the basing of the interest debt on the original indebtedness. In this the customer continues to pay the same rate for the original sum instead of what he owes. He will pay, for example, 8 per cent each month on $300," Douglas said. "Abuses in recent months show that a buyer is loaded down with additional charges, a form of discount and deductions for various services. "The testimony at the hearing was disclosed that in auto financing for used cars there is a volume of cases when a man bought an automobile and found out later he also bought 'life insurance. "The rates are heavy. And not only is he buying life insurance against his will or knowledge but also accident insurance. "Service charges — her* there has been a big source of abuse. These accumulations of finance charges, which are often in excess of the interest rates, place a burden on the purchaser. "We are making a study of individual cases. We find that the consumer in many cases is paying as much as 140 per cent on the unpaid balance by computing interest on a monthly basis," he said. Douglas said he is not anxious to have the national government take over supervision of finance from the states. But he pointed out that 19 states do not have laws in the personal loan area. "Our analysis shows that the 31 remaining states do not have laws that are effective," he said. "In 31 states no laws deal with merchandise other than an automobile."
