Best Dressed Girl No Clothes Horse By CLAIRE COX United Press Staff Correspondent Chicago, (U.R) — Evelyn Hall, named one of the 10 best-dressed working girls in the U. S., said Saturday she really had hardly a thing to wear. "I don't even own an evening dress," she said. Miss Hall was among 10 American girls whom the Mayfair Magazine Fashion Guild selected for looking most chic in wardrobes which are "the result of their own earnings." She is employed as office manager at a commercial art gallery where she earns a "modest" salary overseeing the work of two other girls. "I don't know why they picked on me," Miss Hall said. "I'm not glamorous and I don't want to be. I don't want people to point me out as a clothes horse, either." She said her .small wardrobe was hardly enough to fill one closet, and she hasn't even owned an evening dress for at least six years. The rest of her attire includes only six suits—one of them three years old—, "four or five dresses," four hats, four pairs of shoes, three handbags, and one Persian lamb coat. "I try to keep basic," she said. "My clothes all were in .plain colors and of conservative—but stylish—design." SPRINGER-PATCHEN Charles City—Mr. and Mrs. George Patchen of River Edge, N.
