Attire ful picture of present-dayj lies living in model houses America — from our lofty achievements in the arts and sciences on down to the everyday food we eat and clothes we wear. Fashion Shows As you might expect, there'll be fashion shows every day, and even "live" American fami- and apartments on the fair grounds. But the "models" who interest us most are the 52 young men and 28 girls who will serve as guides during the fair. T h e .s e Russian - speaking Americans will wear, instead of uniforms, typical American wardrobes taken off currenti clothing racks and counters. In a, they will be uniform in dress since all the men will wear the same outfits on the same day, as will the women. The male guides' wardrobes are valued at about $300 each. You might check them against your own basic wardrobe to see if you've got the same value in styling and wear-and-care qualities for this modest sum: All-wool red sport shirt, retailing at about $13.95. Navy blue casual jacket, all wool, $17.50; Gray flannel slacks, $22.50; Navy blue wool cap, $3.95; Sweater Blue .shawl-collared cardigan sweater, $22.50; Light blue Orion-wool jersey .^port shirt, long sleeves. $7.50 "Off duty" swim trunks $5.95; boxer trunks, $3.95 short-sleeve cotton terry shirt $2.95; ' Iridescent blue worsted suit 3-button single breasted, notched lapel, flap pockets and center vent, $79.50; Dacron - cotton wash - wear single breasted suit. $39.95; Three shirts: cotton wash- wear sport shirt, $5; oxford button-down, $5; Dacron-cotton dress shirt, $6.95; Shoes Three pairs of shoes: brown blucher, $15.95; black slip-on. $13.95; black three--eyelet blucher, $9.95; Three pairs of nylon stretch socks in black, maroon and navy. $3 total; Three sets of underwear, .$6 total; Gray tweed casual hat, $10; Solid rep tie, $2.50; Neutral color raincoat, $25. WHITE FLANNEL — These cool white flannel walk- shorts fill the bill on board ship and when sight-seeing in port. They're all wool, hold a press, shed dirt and are pleatless. The shirt is knitted wool jersey, very cool and doesn't wrinkle. The black front panel is a smart contrast to the gray body. It is short sleeved for summer comfort. The fun hat adds a bright note on deck. Collection of Casual Straws Is More Daring than Ever By Dick Kleiner NEW YORK — (NEA) — Summer is sometimes known as the silly season. It's the timcj when you can do things which you might not otherwise do— and wear things which you wouldn't think of wearing at other times in the year. Take hats. You'd never wear a hat band as gay as. some of jmor is a casual, relaxed, happy season. Fifth Generation Arthur Sarnoff, the fifth generation of his family to be in the hat business, designs many of the models his firm makes and sells. And this summer his collection of casual straw.s—as well as casuals of other fabrics —is more daring than ever. There are straws that basi- Five of the 52 young Russian-speaking American men who will HCTve as guides at the American National Exhibition in Moscow next week model the typical American clothes they'll wear over there, included are (left to right): a shawl-collared cardigan sweater; a blue long-sleeved sport shirt; a navy blue casual jacket; a gray wash-wear suit and an Iridescent blue continental suit. The male guides' wardrobes arc valued at about $300 each. Some arc copies of native J-i^!styles in such places as Perul^OCOf/OO hOir-UO and India. Others iire modern; replicas of old-fashioned shapes. He even has a tri- cornored job that visions of the Think Nylon Is Hoffer Than Coffon? Illinois Research Team Disagrees Should Be Simple URBANA — The widespread belief that nylon is hotter than cotton may be just that—a belief. It's now been proved that skin temperatures are the same under cotton and nylon clothing. The girls wearing similar cotton and nylon outfits say they agree with the thermometers. Thermal Comfort brings back Revolutionary War. In straw, yet. Others are trimmed with tiny figure.s or cutouts, or decked out in blinding bands, or tricked out with rope or feathers or colorful brushes.

More and more, men's fashions are exploring new territory and summer casual hats is a good j place for you to start your I exploring. If you don't want to spoil your summer vacation moan- participating in the tests wore outfits made from cotton and nylon in each of the climatic conditions. They report that they were equally comfortable or uncomfortable thermally at the different temperatures and humidities. Research at the University of Illinois by Jane Werden and ing and groaning about the way 1 Ruth Galbraith, department of your hair looks, give the hairdo you choose for the hot months .some careful consideration. You will want it, first of all, to be light as a feather. And you'll want it shaped so that you can, without fuss and bother, recomb it into styles suitable for both casual days and formal evenings, Sintce summer is the time of year when most of us do travel, and certainly are more active outdoors,'we would be wise to have our hair professionally shaped .so that it will be becoming and easy to handle. home economics, and M. K. Fahnestock, department of mechanical engineering, shows that the fiber content makes no difference in the thermal comfort of clothing. Tests were run at four different temperatures (from slightly cool to hot) and two different humidities (40 per cent and 80 per cent). The girls Measurements In another .series of 'tests, the girls again wore outfits made of cotton and nylon as they sat in a hot, humid room and then moved to an air-conditioned room. The same measurements were taken this series as in the first. Again the records indicated, and the girls agreed, that there were no differences due to the cotton and nylon fibers. The three research workers report, "while we could find no differences in thermal comfort of the various fibers tested, the popular conception that there is a difference is too strong to be denied at this point." Methodist Churches Built in Seoul, Delhi A large new Methodist church has just been completed in the capital city of one Asian country, and by Feb. 1960, an other Asian capital is expected to have a major new Methodist church. The J. S. Ryang Memorial $100,00 and seating 2,500 in the sanctuary, was dedicated recently in Seoul, Korea. In Delhi. India, the Centenary Methodist Church, to serve 2,000 Hindu-speaking Method injists, is under construction and is expected to be ready for use next February. It is expected to cost about $144,000. Name Woman Detective on Denver Police DENVER — iJP) — Denver's first woman detective is a college graduate in psychology who packs a pistol but has never used it— except for target practice— in six years of police work. Mrs. Doris Shelley went to work for the department because, "I had just graduated from college and needed a job." She has advanced steadily and recently was appointed a detective. Mrs. Shelley's past assignments have been mostly investigations for the department's Morals, Detective and Juvenile bureaus on cases involving fortune tellers, gamblers, sex offenders, child molesters and juvenile delinquents. 'I've met a lot of people, I 'd never met otherwise," she says. Her most interesting work, she says, has been on the problem of sex offenders and child molesters because she studied abnormal behavior in college. Mrs. Shelley often works incognito checking on gambling at local race tracks, breaking up fortune telling operations and investigating liquor violations. "There's always danger, but I've never had any trouble in arresting or holding persons," she says. While she has never used her revolver on a case she practices target shooting each month. Her detective assignments will be almost exclusively with delinquent girls, making investigations, pick ups and checking probation violations. Mrs. Shelley, a native of Indiana, was graduated from the University of Denver in 1953 with a degree in psychology. During undergraduate days she had not intention of going into police work. It's very interesting, and I like working with people," she says.

Pleafe print plainly your name, address with zme, style num Fashion Nofes Alaskan Angles The parka, first and foremost; is the essential, beloved,; jtalked-about fashion in ourl Uoth. You can't top the flat-' tery of that fur-trimmed hood —and a parka'd baby is irresistible. Most popular ver- ;sions: mink-gill, hair seal, raccoon, corduroy, leather. Jewelry means golden nuggets, symbol of Alaska almost. There's a wealth of hematite, jade, ivory, too, set in gold or silver-gilt. Collector's item are the very scarce Russian "trade beads" of lapiz, one of which was worth a white fox skin. "Fu r s abound in Alaska, though the skins are sent out side for manufacture. Most popular are hair seal, mink-gill, mink and fur seal. Lush fox and marten skins also abound —•the latter really American sable, rich and thick. Rarities (to us) are the fishers and land otters, also natural fitch. Inlaid fur banding is an Eskimo forte, used for trimming on parkas and mukluks. Footwear focuses dn mukluks, boot-like gear with tanned hard elk-hide soles and uppers of leather or fur. They wrap around the leg to hug the calf with leather thongs, are trimmed with inlaid fur bands beading, wool pom-pons Liners inside of soft felt offset the hard soles, Then, there are soft-sole "Santa Claus' boots of hair seal or reindeer fur with turned-up toes which have the look of Lapland. Woman's way is very fashion conscious, there. Women in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Nome as well as other cities enjoy high fashion and therie is much dressup for parties, balls ^dinners and weddings.
