Back-toSchool Accent in the Nations Stores By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK UB- The accent Is on youth in the nation's stores. Back-to-school promotions are aimed at a record 43,135,000 enrolling in schools and colleges. This means 1% million more need outfitting this year than last. First response has ranged from spotty to excellent. Most stores look for the big rush this coming week. Ads stress the new in school needs, like: "A modern pen for the progressive student" and "pack up your bubbles (a liquid laundry detergent) and carry them off to school in a plastic bottle." Play Up Standby* Or thej> play up the standbys of other days, like. "Our poplin auto coat" reminiscent of the first horseless carriages, second hand raccoon coats that saw their first time round in the 20s, and middy blouses. The National Assn. of Men's Apparel Clubs believes that boys are getting more clothes conscious. And a store in the Bronx section of New York City advertises Ivy League style suits for grade school boys Boys' Apparel Buyers Assn. Time* Herald, Carroll, Iowa Saturday, Aug. 24, 1957 J. A.
