By HELEN HENNESSY NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK — (NEA) Focusing attention on the legs was a favorite pastime of the 1960s and it spilled over to the short-lived hot pants flash of 1971. So while a great many women are still happy with the dressing-in- pants syndrome, designers are now lifting their talents to the top of the silhouette. Nat Hirsch, designer for Junior Gallery, is intent on emphasis at the yoke, shoulders and collar but doesn't think it should be achieved with an excess of width. "Ladies don't want to look like football players," he said. "But they do want to look different from the way they looked last year." While many designers have made a big play for dolman sleeves, hoping to revive a look that was popular in the 1950s, Hirsch hesitates to concentrate too much on dolmans as they're not the easiest fashion to wear or manipulate. Instead, he makes the action happen at the top by adding ruffles on coats which is about one of the loveliest touches ever. Capelet shoulders, puffy sleeves, shirred yokes are also among the new softening influences. Suit jackets hone in on the top action for pantsuits and skirt suits. These are well- balanced by wide leg pants and pleated, motionful skirts. More top action is in store this season in hats—but not stodgy old millinery that you buy in a salon at a table Personal Mention Bolder shoulder treatments clear the way for the top action. Capelet shouldered, water repellent chino coat (left) has a snug, warm quilted lining. Sleek wool broadcloth coat (right) pulls in via a half belt in the back and has a ruffled bib for top attention. Both designs are by Nat Hirsch for Junior Gallery. balancing a large mirror. You might unexpectedly pick up a floppy beret at a small accessory outpost lo­ cated in the coat or sportswear department. Unserious, throw-away-type accessories are a sign of the times and Meetings in Kansas 50-Year Honors Mrs. Delbert Hinsch, at left, president of Chapter AY, P.E.O., presents a 50-year pin, an award for Mrs. Tilla Sheldon, to her daughter, Mrs. Eva Sheldon Holmes who accepted it for her. Mrs. John Osgood, Estherville, at right, has been presented her 50-year pin which is attached to her jacket below her P.E.O. membership pin. Mrs. Sheldon, now a resident of Minneapolis, was unable to attend. Her daughter, also of Minneapolis, was initiated by chapter AY.

This book, written by George Sullivan, features exciting accounts of the careers and achievements of approximately 40 of pro-football's greatest all-time running backs. Significant games and key plays are also re-created. How about finding some interesting facts about the Miami Dolphins? Read PROMISES TO KEEP by Bill Braugher. The first Dolphin team was coached by George Wilson, quarterbacked by his son, underwritten by comedian Danny Thomas— cheered on at times only by Flipper— which would rise six years later to challenge mighty Dallas in the Super Bowl. If any of you received wine- making kits as Christmas gifts, we have just in the new WORLD ATLAS OF WINE, by Hugh Johnson. This extraordinary book, the first complete atlas of the wines and spirits of the world, is a landmark in the history of wine and wine literature. We also have "Easy to Make Wine" by Mrs. Gennery Taylor, and "The Craft of Making Wine" by Jan Adkins. GIFTS OF AN EAGLE, by Kent Curden. This delightful book is about a golden eagle named Lady. Captured as a nestling, Lady was raised by Kent Durden and his father at their home in the coastal mountains of Southern California. She lived with them 16 years until the breathtaking moment when she flew back to freedom with a wild mate. "Gifts of an Eagle" is about Lady's years in captivity and the day-by-day revelations of the complex, babbling, proud and somehow touching personality that lies behind the gleaming eyes of this one very individual eagle. As a symbol of those animals on the verge of extinction, Lady gives us all a chance to understand how vital they are in the balance of nature and thereby makes a strong plea for a new alliance between man and wildlife, so necessary for survival, so important in undoing the destruction which has already begun.

CORRECTION In the Daily News of Jan. 4, the report of the 40th wedding anniversary celebration for Mr. and Mrs. Merl Landmesser referred to It as the emerald anniversary in accordance with a reference used here, Webster's New International Dictionary (copyright 1944), which lists the 40th as the emerald year.
