Buy For Father's Day By DICK KLEINER NEW YORK — (NEA) — Noth ing, after all, is sacred. It used to be that there were a few fields Result _ gift certificates won,; sportswear placed and shirts showed. Actually, a gift cerlificate is a tad elusive*. WS sensible ^rangement. There are any encroaching females. Gradually, the gals have been invading Ihem, one by__one,_pnd now Hie last stronghold lias (alien. And (his last stronghold is jokes- about-hats. Women were the only sex lo wear silly hals. And a man could say something wilty, like "What happened—did a fruit salad fall on you?" But now along conies "fun hats" for men and, boom, down goes this final fortress. Fun hats—some manufacturers simply call them novelty straws- are wild and zany and impractical. But that's what they're supposed lo be. They're designed for leisure hours, when the wild and zany and impractical are highly sensible. They're comfortable and easy to wear. It doesn't matter if they're an cigbth-of-an-inch over the righl ear or nol. They're free of inhibitions. Colors like fire engine red and sky blue and shrimp pink are available, along with dreary old browns and grays. Some have huge feathers and some have big, sloppy brims and some have gaudy bands. They're fun fo wear. That's the main tiling. If you're out fishing or golfing or gardening o- just relaxing and feel Ihe need of some covering for your delicale litlle head, a fun hal beats wearing a plain hat of any kind. Of course, if you wear one, yuxi do so with the full knowledge that some gal is going to make a witty remark, like "Ob. say, Bessie, you do look chic." But never mind. They're just getting even for 75 years of fruil salad. & *. * Father's Day (June 16) is often a pretty grim day for Dad. If he hasn't dropped r few conslruclive hints, he's liable to wind up with a gift he can't stand. In this connection, any mothers or wives or daughters planning a gift for father might pay attention to the result of a survey conducted by a man's magazine (True). It asked 2,300 subscribing falhcrs what llicy would mosl like lo receive. no worries about styles, sizes, colors, lie can pick out what he ,-ants. Never can tell, Ihe old boy maywind up wilh a-happy Father's Day vel. * * * The Marine Corps has announced thai, beginning wilh this summer's lightweight uniforms, French cuffs are permissible on uniforms for officers and staff NCO's.
