WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE ELEVEN Coed's Winter Coat Is Big Investment By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP FasMon, Writer NEW YORK (AP) -During high school and college girls begin to learn about big fashion investments, f6r the choice of a winter coat Is entirely theirs, without parental influence. It's either their own hard-earned money they're spending, or an allowance with frustrating limitations, and they have to play it close to the line. They learn to take stock of (heir wardrobes, and then search for outerwear investment with the largest fashion dividends. Often they double their money with reversibles that are sportive or dressy. One thing they learn to avoid is common stock. Who wants to look like the girl next door? Whatever its price, a good coat ought to have chic, good lines, and fine const ruction. In other words it should be strictly blue chip. Imitations Preferred Preferred stock among the wise investors this fall are coats that fake out the skins of wild-j cats, as well as imitation leath-i ers and suedes with not - really-i snakcskin trim. ! Also seeing plenty of action on the trading board are turncoats. They have quiet, well behaved; color that gets along with every-j thing on one side, and on the oth-j er a lively plaid guaranteed to cheer up a drab day. Among the glamor stocks are ! shaggy, deep - pile coats, in white, bright hues, and pastels, too. Here are three kinds of casuals of which a miss might take stock. At left, is a plaid woof cape coat \vhich reverses to a camel's hair side (shown third from left.) The girl in between wears a fake cat print coat, and hood which is also reversible. At far right, the tailored vinyl swede coat has a mandarin collar as an oriental touch. Ann Landers He '// Never Be a Gezundheiter are not overlooking the utilities — coats that are water repellent, easily cleaned, and warm without being tiringly heavy. Girls research carefully before | they buy. Is the hood a permanent fixture? Or docs it zip off?

Our son, Lawrence who will be 12 years old next -December, plays ball with these little hoodlums. Lawrence seems not to notice that they are roughnecks Still, usually when she discusses the matter with her banker, he (Dad) is so impressed with his daughter's fashion business acumen he is not the least bearish about floating a loan for the second investment. All in all, the market experience is invaluable training, excellent background for a girl who is working her way up to mink. Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Robert L.

I finally said, "Bill, I sneezed." He replied, "Do you have a cold?" I gave up then and there. Why is he like this? What can I do about it?—ROZETTA DEAR ROZETTA: Blessing the sneezer is a family custom which Children learn from association and I don't want Lawrence to pick up any of their nasty habits. My husband says he grew up in the toughest neighborhood on New York's East Side and it didn't hurt him one bit. He has asked me to stay out of this and to say nothing. I'm not so sure this is the best approach. What do you say?—W.M.W.

If your son's training has been good the neighbor boys will not corrupt him. Say nothing. Should Lawrence spring a little primitive Anglo-Saxon in your home, just tell him you will not tolerate such talk and there will be no more of it. «' * * * DEAR ATVN: I know now that doormats don't always know they are doormats. They just go around unhappy, with a vague feeling that something is wrong with them. I had my first big think on the subject when I attempted to discuss my unhappiness with my husband. He looked at me dull- eyed and said, "So you're unhappy. Now isn't that a shame." Then he walked into another room. - When I told him I was going to see a psychiatrist he became angry. He said there had never been anyone crazy in his family, and that I was imagining things. When I told him I was going to pay for the therapy with money I had saved from the years when I worked he was furious. He thought it was selfish of me to "squander our nest egg." I asked him to please keep quiet about my treatment, but within the week he had told every member of his family and mine. My mother was outraged. She said I was blighting the family name. My sisters said they always suspected I was a nut. I somehow found the strength to tell them all where to head in and now I feel myself growing stronger and more confident every day. I'm getting to know myself for the first time and to my astonishment I'm not useless and stupid as I once thought.

Really, that's just about as bad form as wearing a diamond necklace with a bikini. Surely we girls have more fashion know-how than to mix our fashion metaphors. This season's casual clothes for town wear, above all other types, demand appropriate accessories. The first clue to them is in the shoe. .. one with a gentled toe and mid-heel, in burnished or grainy leather, in reptile or plushy suede. It could be a pump a tie or a near-boot. In chilly weather it might be a real boot. But it must have the spit- and-polish of impeccable town- tailoring. The same look characterizes a suitable handbag. The right shapes are uncontrived—on the large side, but always classic in feeling. The colors in both bags and shoes, as by now you might guess, are keyed to classic shades—antique brown, tauped grays, russet, khaki, bronze, olivine. The "small touches" must also tnie to the line. The just-right scarf is foulard paisley or regimental stripes. The stocking is textured, a little or a lot. The glove is pigskin, knitted or hand- stitched leather. In jewelry, important stick pins and cuff links take over. It could be, of course, that served But if greater formality, crave the casual you like your cup of fashion 1960-61. brew, drink ft in proper style— with nonchalant but posh accessories. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Wood River AAVW Dr. Marion Taylor will be guest speaker at the first fall meeting of the general membership of the Wood River Branch, American Association of University Women, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday In East Alton Savings & Loan Association building.
