C PENNY CO Man, Dig Those Crazy Easter Lids By PAT MULLINS (Courier News Society Editor) Girls, you should hear some of the remarks men are making about our spring bonnets—as if they had not always ridiculed the more extreme variety of headdress. Of course in some cases, I not only agree with them, but I can also sympathize with them when they escort a gal wearing one of these monstrosities to church or to a party. And these new colors—they'rt absolutely the end. A little cocktail number I saw recently—in screaming pink looked like any ordinary pill box hat bar.ded at the bottom by small rhinestones except for a tassel of black silken threads which hung right over the left eye—not down to the cheek mind you, but down to the shoulder. It looked like a crow between a Veronica Lake hairdo and a mop. Another current offering is ft black straw with a brim, which extends past the shoulders. Looks like it really should be worn with a zoot suit., Now, of course, if you're a little more conservative, there's always the inverted sand-p»il with a patch of varigated flowers growing out of the top. If you don't like that style, maybe you'd prefer, the little blue hat I tried on. It was quite charm- ing, for those of you wno like the inverted bowl with flapping velvet bow ears. Two other distinct style* are to follow. One is the tall, pointed type, which actually looks the old witch hats we used to buy at ft 10-cent store for Halloween. Or maybe it reminds you more of the dunce cap used in schools so long ago. Who knows, maybe one of these was the inspiration for such a headdress. Another definite shape is something that vaguely resembles a lamp shade. This type may be adorned by anything from fruits and vegetables in clusters on the side to a whole patch of flowers, feathers or—well, you're guess is as good as mine as to what will be next. If you're always flying around, then here's the type for you. It's shape very much like a helmet and is adorned by large jeweled hat pins. Looks like K came from outer space, and the nice thing about this hat is that you can always let the kids have it to play space cadets in when you're tired of it. On hats, here's a conversation I heard recently from a couple leaving their house for church on Sunday morning. Husband, with awed expression when his wife entered the living room: "My gosh, Honey, are you going to wear that thing?',' Wife: "But of course. Come on, let's go before we're late." Husband: "No, I've changed my mind. I just don't believe 111 go." On one occasion I heard about, the little woman had bought a new hat to boost her moraLe- When she took it home and asked her husband what he thought about it, he told her it looked just like she had joined the Salvation Army. I asked several men what they thought about their wives' hats thesa days. Some gave frank opinions, while others declined comment. When I approached one fellow on the subject, he had only one thing "to say as he put his hands over his face: "Deliver me." Another man's view of the whole thing was this: "I just cant' see why you women have to wear those silly looking things. All men wear hats practically alike and you women would just flip if you saw someone else wearing the same hat. I just can't see it." The younger man's opinion was this: "Generally speaking about women's hats, Teal cool, frantic, crazy, man, crazy." If you don't understand whether that's a compliment or an insult, don't feel l-'ersonaf 9 i Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Moore, Jr., of Helena, Ark., visited Mrs. Don Edwards here yesterday.

Of course, there are the very simple neat and small hats that you may select and look quite charming without the severe look. The colors, of which navy is probably the most popular, range in shades of the old standbys to the newest soft colors. The trend this year will be to the soft pastels and navy. Men may tease about women's hats and every magazine may include a joke about them, but from one woman to another: go right on buying them, they're wonderful morale builders and they look lovely, even if' the only compliments you receive are from other women.
