Coat Collections f W\alze Selecting problem. Viewing the exciting collection of coats this season, all unmistak ably Fall *63, women will be hard put to limit their choice to just one. Coats range from sportive, col orful mesh tweeds, loops, fleeces and mohairs to full-length eve* ning coats in opulent meltons. There are cape-coats with mil itary bearing, full coats, oval shapes. On the scene, are sophis ticated afternoon coats of crisp- faced worsteds, sometimes with Spanish - influenced braid and passementerie buttons. Fall '63 is a coat season for fashion individualists," says The National Board of The Coat and Suit Industry — and indeed, it is a time when women can express themselves in their cover-ups. Untrimmed or lavishly furred styles are equally fashionable — and for warmth and elegance combined, there are the inside- story coats. Either ample or slender, they are lined with muskrat, opossum, mink, nutria — and even luxurious sable. For the sportive-minded, linings are mink gills, ocelot or red fox. Textures provide magnificent drama for subtle shaping. Lush furry tweeds in monotone or combinations of amethyst and gold . . . forest green with deep pink. Shetlands, meltons, kid mohairs and all the precious fur fibers are fashionable. Dressy and handsome are the new worsteds and among these, Anglo features a textured worsted with surface interest and body to give fashion a crisp, fresh outlook. Checks Checks range from miniature to checker size — and double coatings star with one weave or color superimposed over another in deep colors and rich textures. Untrimmed coats are most ele­ gant when they achieve their shape with subtle seaming—sometimes gently indented in front and free in back, oval shaped or low-belted in the manner of the twenties. Seaming is a major fashion note this season, and definitely it is important to watch for it signifies careful tailoring. In untrimmed coats, collars are understated. They include notched lapel? Peter Pan, unobtrusive wing and cardigan — while pockets make a grand come-back. They appear in patch or flap types — in duets or quartets. Sometimes they disappear as in the new "hidden" pockets—handy for one's fare back home. Sleeves are longer and slimmer, often featuring shirt cuffs. (What a blessing in sheltering one's arms from chilling winds). Shoulders are raglan or balma- caan, in the main, and dropped shoulders are chic and newsworthy. When fur appears, it is generally heaped on generously. Still favored, is mink — from rich dark ranch to delicate silver pearl. Sable is treasured; nutria and beaver appear in natural, mocha or black. With soft flattery, fox and lynx are back in saucer shaped collars or boas that often detach. Other romantic collars include the Rembrandt and Palazzo. The coat story is incomplete without a word about buttons— for they are definite, to say the least. They are newly elongated, twisted, crocheted, passemen­ terie, convex or concave. cranberry to blood orange. Plum with a reddish cast. String beige thrugh the new topaz down to jet brown. Camels are highly im portant. Blues are lively in tones of teal and royal. Greens from emerald to bottle green. Oxford grey is conservative and elegant. Black, the perennial favorite, is with us again — but this autumn, it is overshadowed by its brilliant competition. Fall '63 is a cheery season for coat collectors — for few worn- Color goes rampant. Reds from en will be content to stop at one. New Cuffs Add Fashion Interest With fashion interest shifting strongly to sleeves, cuffs as well as shoulder lines come in for a greater share of attention this season. Favorite treatment is the little roll cuff, with the sleeve softly gathered into it. This type of cuff often is accompanied by a matching roll collar. The shirt-cuff look for sleeves continues in both suits and coats. Other cuffs are detailed to give a custom effect — handsomely adorned with buttons or with buckles and straps. The result adds up to still more freshness for fall fashion. Open Friday 'til 9 P.M. OPULENT swagger A magnificent swirl of silky-soft Berroco Quelinda wool proudly collared with Blue Norwegian Fox.

FalVs Costume Jewelry Carries A 'Golden 9 Look Ever since time began, women have known that jewelry flatters them and draws admiring attention. This Fall's exciting new designs and styles in jewelry of all kinds aro bringing a special sparkle to every woman's eye and adding glamour to her wardrobe, says the Jewelry Industry Council. Everywhere the popularity of karat gold jewelry is growing, and the variety of styles to choose from seems almost limit less. While many new pieces feature traditional patterns, some plain gold jewelry is being shown in neo-modern designs using vari ous kinds of finishes for more interesting effects. One of the most dramatic new trends is the extensive use of colored stones in every type of gold jewelry, with pins and earrings being set with high quality aquamarines, amethysts, garnets, opals, topaz quartz and the various varieties of Lindo stars. The fashion importance of gold filled jewelry has been skyrocketing, thanks to more and more imaginative and tasteful designs in pendants, pins, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Through the use of precious stones, this jewelry is reaching new heights of popularity. Pins, one of the most important jewelry items of the season, carry such interesting stones as black onyx, smoky topaz, jade, carved tiger eye, carnelian and even ivory and carved jade. Gold filled bracelets and necklaces, in a variety of finishes, are available in many styles to suit today's fashions. Costume jewelry this season carries a fascinating "gold look" the result of gold colored fringe, mesh, braid and woven finishes. With the dramatic use of colored stones, the pins, necklaces, bracelets and earrings have taken on an air of special importance. The popular shift dress has brought about two distinct necklace lengths, a long one that is attractive on a high or round collar, and the choker that adds to the boat shape or open neckline. A new mid-length necklace of two or three strands and made in handsome gold finishes is making its debut. All signs point to the fabulous popularity of rings of all kinds. As a result, there is an unprecedented variety of ring designs using colored gems, diamonds, pearls and other attractive stones such as Linde Stars, turquoise, opal, jade, tiger eye, coral and many more. Domeshaped and stone-studded rings have strong fashion appeal, while those with a large single stone, often with flanking diamonds, are in great demand everywhere. Where the stone is the focal point of the ring, the setting shows as little as possible. Reward for a Nurse NEW YORK (UPI) - To a student nurse, caring for newborn babies, children, and surgical patients is the most rewarding part of her job. But the death of a patient can be a potentially strong stress, although it is one that diminishes with time and experience. These were among the findings of a Columbia University research team which surveyed 4,000 student nurses in 29 schools of nursing to find what is satisfying or dissatisfying about their work. Solitude . • . If Alone, Use When boiling old potatoes, use a little milk in the water to keep the spuds from turning dark. Add both curry powder and chopped chutney (with a Uttle of plus cooked rice and vegetable the chutney syrup) to mayonnaise and serve with a platter of cold sliced chicken and turkey salad. Comfort, First Requisite of New Mattress URBANA — In shopping for a mattress, start by looking far comfort to suit the sleeper, advises K. Virginia Seidel, University of Illinois extension home furnishings specialist. To test comfort, she recommends that the person or persons who will use the bed stretch out on the mattress. This test gives a more realistic picture than merely pinching or sitting on the mattress. Miss Seidel points out these other considerations in selecting mattresses: Comfort depends in part on the firmness of the mattress. How firm it should be is a matter of personal preference. A good mattress is level and resilient, with evenly distributed support. By law it must be labeled with a description of all materials used in it. The extra-large mattresses once sold only on custom order are now widely available. Measurements of these extra-large sizes such as "king," "queen," "extra- length" and "long boy s," frequently vary with the brand. While these mattresses may offer added comfort, they may create a space problem in small bedrooms. Also the extra-large mattresses take extra-large sheets. Finally, consider the mattress and springs as a unit. Each item depends on the other for top effectiveness. Chemise Returns The chemise — that major undergarment of the flapper of the 20's — sweeps triumphantly back in many versions — pretty and frivolous little fancies to wear under lined dresses. Some are lace, some gaily beribboned, some take to the fur prints and others bloom with gardens of flowers or cool green forests of leaves. Perfect for Sports Scarf Story Many fall fashions feature scarves, in a variety of fabrics and furs, tucked into V-necklines or worn as babuskas.

The first is the stadium coat, the 39-inch long coat that underlines the special importance of corduroy for fall. The corduroy is often treated like melton, and lined with bold plaids or pile. Details include detachable hoods, toggles, big patch pockets and defined yokes. Still in the new long-coat category is the convertible coat that can go from country to town and back again in a shell of cotton or a blend, with pile, fur or fake fur collars that button off, and pile, laminated wool or fake fur linings that zip out. Dressy outerwear will mean coats of wool in single and double- breasted models. The herringbones are prominent here. These coats will be featured in diagonals and plaids in black and white as well as a variety of compound colors. In addition, a silvery sharkskin is a new entry. Fake fur collars, both shawl and notch, accent the coats. In the linings the now, bright ideas will be important.
