The Parisian hair stylists have decreed medium length bobs, longer in front and shorter in back, for the winter season. But the President's wife, who has a flair for creating her own styles, still prefers the long casual look for herself. Her long page boy caused a lot of comment when she made a public appearance at the welcoming ceremonies for Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia before her trip to Greece. Masculine opinion was highly in favor of it. To women observers, it was the "Jackie" individuality again, bound to gain many followers. A few years ago, Mrs. Kennedy's bouffant hair-do's were fashion pacesetters. Most of the New Frontier women soon fell into line including the women in the Kennedy clan. But leading Washington hair dressers are now promoting shorter hair. Jean Louis, one of the capital's haute couture hair dressers, has just returned from Paris with what he claims is the last word on the' subject—shorter hair with less teasing and, happily men will say, less spray to hold it in place. Jean Louis' main sales pitch to the elite women who come to his salon is that the new style is more useful and chic—especially if they are nearing or past 30. He is all for the super dazzling upswept hairdos for evening, but prefers to achieve these creations by adding a small hairpiece, called a "postiche." While cruising on the Mediterranean on the luxurious yacht of Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, the first lady has not bothered with fancy hairdos. But there are two hairdressers on board to keep her and her female companions, including Princess Radziwill, well-groomed while touring the Greek islands.

Participating Leagues were Galesburg, Kewanee, McLean County, Moline, Rock Island, Peoria, Sterling and Morrison. The members heard Tilmon Kreiling, Republican State Committee Chairman from the 18th Congressional District explain the structure of the political parties and the role of the political workers. John E. Cassidy Sr., former Attorney General, traced the history of the political parties, beginning with the Federalists. He stated that all laws passed go through a series of checks and balance, for it has to be passed by both houses, and the governor still has the power of veto. Public opinion, continued Mr. Cassidy, is still the most powerful force on legislation. Of the 102 counties in Illinois, 52% of the voters are in one county, which is Cook County. The manager of the Caterpillar Foundation, Ron Hurst, outlined the functions of the political parties such as: provide machinery for nominations; rallying point of similar viewpoints; vehicle for raising money; encouragement of qualified men; arouse voter interest; and to keep interest between elections. Former assistant Attorney general and corporation counsel for the City of Peoria, and now senior member of a law firm, Thomas B. Kennedy Sr., stressed the fact that discipline in political parties prevents chaos, and the party platform must be supported. He continued that the average citizen votes against something, rather than for something. Concerning patronage, Mr. Kennedy stated that this will continue to be a necessary form of politics, but it has declined appreciatively in recent years. The afternoon session was spent in workshops on United Nations, membership, foreign policy and public relations. Mrs. William Johnson, president, Miss Gertrude Hopps, Mrs. E. Van Giesen, Mrs, S. Ross, Mrs. Robert Cabeen, Mrs. Ray Arnold and Mrs. Werner Michaelson, members of the local league attended the all day session.
