St. Louis designers use this theme In many Ingenious ways, but one of the most popular Is tailored In a salt and pepper tweed with the seams at side and neckline etched in black braid. Designed on sheath lines, it has an optional belt. In contrast, there is the full- skirted jumper buttoned to the hem in front, coat-style, and worn over a tailored shirt or sweater. The sheath jumper in black velveteen is greatly favored for its two-way look— when worn with glittering jewelry and white gloves, it is a becoming cocktail dress; worn with wool jersey shirt, it becomes a dress for campus. STRAwllANDBAGS . Freshen up your straw handbags and hat for the new sea son. Usually you can remove most grime with sudsing. Let the items dry and then shellac. Give each article as many coats of shellac as needed to stiffen the straw. Note Advantages of Costume Suit A very easy measure of fashion is the look of a costume, head-to-toe. Does it hang together—in silhouette. In fabric? The costume suit offers an easy affirmative to these points, and as a consequence is one of the popular fashions every year. This season is no exception. St. Louis ~ where so many young ideas have their start — creates the costume suit In many versions. Most of them begin with a well-shaped wool dress, and over It, a tweed jacket or a jacket In the fabric of the dress. Others match the dress with a long coat; or let a blouse In the lining of the jacket add an ensemble note. One of the most dramatic of the new costume suits is created in a rayon damask — the dress for late day and theatre, topped with a full- length matching coat. For town and travel, co-ordinated separates in tweeds and plaid woolens offer interesting variety. Spotlight Fabrics in Coat Styles Coat news from St. Louis houses begins with the fabric. The young look expressed in cashmere is newly bold in coats with stand-away necklines or with shoulder-wide collars — wrapped or fastened with just one button. For those addicted to cashmere, these light-as-feather coats can be teamed with cashmere skirts and sweaters for a co-ordinated look. With them, however, are the new tweeds — many with shawl collars or long-haired fur —or belted in the Hollywood manner. It's a year of glamour in coats, and St. Louis designers favor the tawny colors. 'NATURAL' BEAUTY To give the impression that you're "naturally" beautiful, avoid the heavily made-up look. To pick up excess liquid foun dation, pat . . . don't rub . . the face with a cotton square. To get a smoother finish with pancake foundation, allow it to dry, then buff with a cotton square to remove excess. —Mniicheitter Studio Janet Geller Steven J, Bomba to Claim Bride Mr. and Mrs. George H.

Stylists Proclaim Year for Jersey The lovely cares of wool jersey—soft as a kitten's touch is one, of the reasons for its perennial popularity. Designers choose it for tailored dresses with easy drape, using contrasting colors in the jersey for dramatic interest. Typical is one in which the color contrast is used as a shirred panel at one side; another styled as simply as a pinafore has a wide leather belt; some are full-skirted,, . , , „ others are pencil slim and lined |^*).^^'^ KO- Government-Planned City Elects Woman First Mayor Wed in Ohio The Congregational Church of Kent, Ohio, was the setting for the recent marriage of Phyllis Bryden Waddell, daughter of Mr. and Mr,»,.

RICHLAND, Wash.—(NEA) —Pat Merrill, a pretty 35-year- old mother of four lively youngsters, is putting into practice some of the things she learned in a cultural anthropology course 16 years ago. She's the first mayor of this city of some 23,000 citizens. Last December Richland was incorporated as Washington's 11th largest city. Shortly thereafter, Pat Merrill became mayor of this city where plutonium—the nuclear fuel that triggers atom—is made. She's been having fun and doing a real job ever since in one of our three atomic communities. Everybody's Problems For most of her life Mrs. Edwin T. Merrill has been concerned with the problems of her fellow citizens. That class at the University of Washington only whetted her interest. She says she is proving that being mayor and mother at the same time is not only possible but is in the interests of good government. When this government- planned city became incorporated, Patricia won the mayor's job over a fellow councilman. Now the pretty, five-foot, six-inch mayor, who describes herself as a brownette, has everybody's problems on her mind. But she's not worrying, even though the pay isn't much —$1,000 a year. City Charter She's mighty proud, too, of Richland's city charter. "We're putting good government to work in the simplest way possible," she smiles, as she tells you how she guided some 40 ordinances and resolutions through her council in the first two and a half months on the job. Mayor Merrill moved here from Seattle with husband, Ed, a chemical engineer for the company which operates the big Plutonium works for Uncle Sara. By 1951 she had joined the League of Women Voters, began to atttend the advisory council meetings and "got interested in what makes the —Swtrtout StudI* MRS. DOUGLAS BRAND (Phyllis Waddell) to keep their good shape, In young fashion it's a year for jersey in all the colors of a painter's pallette. "Government is everybody's business, and it's only as good as the people in it," she insists, "If you don't vote; don't complain. Go to council meetings. If everyone would attend only two city council meetings year in this coimtry, there would be a great upswing in good government, "1 never assume people know what I mean. I tell them what I'm thinking." Family Powwow Before Pat consented to be a candidate for mayor, her family held a powwow. She spelled out just what it would mean to them; how she might have to be away from home more than usual. Ed agreed and .so did the children—Linda, 12; Steven, 10; Mark, 8; and David, 6. Mayor Merrill cooks all the family meals but a hired woman does the housework. When she's cooking, a 25-foot telephone cord permits her to discuss city business. Official business gets under way about mid-morning, and before the afternoon is out Mayor Merrill doffs her municipal role and becomes Mother Merrill. Once a week she reveals her true femininity and hies herself off to a beauty .salon, where Gladys Baird gives her a shampoo and all the trimmings. She looks forward to that one and a half hours under the drier. "The main thing about the drier," she confesses, "is that nobody can call me on the phone and I get a lot of things done. I read ordinances and correspondence. I think I save the city lime; it's not time off the job." Lutherans Launch Church Bond Issue NEW YORK — (m — For the first time, the United Lutheran Church in America has entered the commercial money market.
