THE TROUBLE IS, WHEN SHE SAYS 6HE'LL SCARE UP SOMETHING TO EAT, 6HE REALLY MEAN6 fT," "WELL, SO MUCH FOR NIGHT-CLUBS I NG, CHARLIE." Hats Are Back and . . . Look Who's Wearing Them! By HELEN HENNESSY NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK—(NEA)—For the past few years fashion has been frequently dictated by the young people. And to all appearances they're on the job once more. Since the days of the bouffant hairdo the millinery industry has been slowly" dying. And even though those days are long since gone, the mature woman has never gone back to wearing hats en masse. But today, according to Bernard Grossman, president of Betmar, a hat. company, the millinery business is booming again. And the boom is due to the kids who until recently never wore a hat in their lives. To them it's new and it's fun. "All the mommas say, 'It's nice that hats are back.' But they don't buy them. "We're doing belter because of the young people. So our business is concentrated in stores that have a basic young clientele," he said. Grossman maintains that the millinery sales increase comes from stores that weren't even in existence a short time ago or store groups that had but one store and now have 50 simply because they cater to young people. These stores, he said, are ordering tons and tons of hats. "This trend is evident in cities everywhere," Grossman added. "The kids are educational to me. They're barometers. I watch what they buy and what the stores reorder. "Our designing is not from our brains these days. It's from feedback. "I go into the woods and I get feedback. And the feedback is not provincial. The young people in our country are creating their own trends. This is the way we think and plan and respond." Ali MacGraw made one kind of hat popular among the kids. From that time on "...and thank you for the doll, Grandma." The now generation's quest for fashion nostalgia is satisfied in the reminiscent "Cut-Up" pull-down cloche of powdery blue felt (upper left). The mood of the rollicking jazz age comes to fashion life again for spring in the eye-catching yellow felt "Great Gatsby" shape (upper right). The fashion bravado of front page news is captured in the sweeping brim of the "Godfather" silhouette in pink. "Liberation Derby," softly shaped (lower right) is in parfait pink felt. (All design! by Betmar) the biggest sellers are close- fitting hats that go with the long hair. "I sense the beginning of a very big hatwear business," said Grossman, "if we keep ourselves in the popular price range. As more kids wear more hats more store departments will stock hats. "You have to nurture the growth. And that's exciting. You design by listening and watching. Sometimes it s not so romantic — as designing hats once was. But at least you know you're reviving an industry, "The kids wear what they want to. And they want to wear hats now. As they get older they will be oriented to hats," he predicted. So the millinery business is once again on the road to playing a top role in fashion. Let's hope some kookie hair stylist doesn't dream up another hairdo that will take its place as today's top banana. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) A long distance call is the really thoughtful way to acknowledge gifts from relatives and friends far away. It gives you a chance to let them know their gift arrived safely and how much you appreciate it. It's a lot easier than writing and gives you a chance to have a personal visit, too. And the cost is very small. Just 75* or less for a 3-minute, out-of-state station call to anywhere in the continental U.S., except Alaska, any weeknight after 5 and all weekend, if you dial direct without operator assistance.* Why not call and make those Christmas "thank you's" right now? *Dial-it-yourself rales apply on all interstate dialed calls (without operator assistance) from business or residence phones anywhere in the continental U.S. (except Alaska) and on calls placed with an operator where direct dialing facilities are not available. Dial-direct rates do not apply to person-to-person, com, hotel guest, credit card and collect calls, and on calls charged to another number. (§) Northwestern Bell
