I Dior Hemline Heard 'Round The World By AMoclated PT'MI Fuhlon Editor All over the world right now women of all countries are contemplating their skirt lengths, and trying to decide that trying question: "To shorten or not to »horten • Cause of all this widespread rumpus is a small, mild Frenchman named Christian Dior, who threw the world of fashion into a similar tizzy a few years ago when he introduced the "New Look," with longer fuller skirts, after the skimpy stylet of World War II. When he displayed skirts two- to-three inches shorter than current styles In his fall fashion show- Ing early in August, buyers and press were thrown into a state of high excitement. The words "knee- length skirts" went clicking over the press wires, setting off a chain reaction which resulted hi a state of polite War between rival designers, particularly the British, with Dior. In America, polls were taken and women vowed they would never go back to that "unbecoming skirt length." U. S. buyers In Paris tempered enthusiasm with caution, bought a. few of the new short models, filled in with IKS startling designs. Some of the high-style shops in New York and other population centers stocked the short-skirt models heavily. Others ordered the Dior frocks with longer skirts. But U.S. experts predict that by spring American women will be following the leader and turning up their hemlines once more. 7« You. Can Profit From.

Well, what do you do about his criticisms? Lump them all together as evidence of how difficult he is with, resent them all, and. then discredit them? Or have you really stopped to analyze his criticisms to study them carefully. Ruth Alillett You really should, you know. A criticism doesn't have to start a fight, be dismissed as lack of appreciation, or be resented. If you'll pay some real attention you may learn something about yourself. For instance, if your husband says you spoil the children: You can resent the criticism, or you can ask yourself, "Is it true? Am I really too easy on the children? Are they well-behaved, happy, and self- reliant, or are they spoiled, selfish, hard to get along with?" If you are certain the children show no evidence of bein gspolled, then you may he safe in dismissing the criticism. But if your honest answer is that they are selfish and hard to live with, then there's truth, in your husband's criticism. Reason" For Criticism There is reason why a husband should criticize his wife. A great many women believe, however, a good husband should act as though his wife is perfect. And certainly the wife who listens to criticism with an open mind isn't nearly as likely to have a husband who criticizes constantly.
