And who can blame him. tfis never, never land of whim- Meal, body-revealing clothes is too much fun to leave. Qernreich—whose past shockers include the topless bathing suit—was the icing on the cake jfirtday as the week-long series Of American Designer showings came to a close. "There are many understated versions of the clothes you will see," Gernreich told his audience of fashion reporters from all over the country. "But I BIRTHS Mr. and Mrs. John Wright, 201 S.

They're a bore." The designer, not to be outdone by his own creations, appeared in a white, zippered Nehru suit with black turtleneck. Gernreich showed two collections—one, a series of knitwear he did for Harmon* the other a "courture" group for his own line of clothed. In both groups, there were tunics, tunics and more tunics —shown with tights, pants, skirts, bloomers and boots. No matter what the combination though, the clothes were complicated. Models peeled off layer and layer to get down to almost—but not quite—bare skin. Hidden underneath many of the tunics were see-through blouses which hid nothing. Gernreich used coq feathers from the tips of his models' huge hats to the toes of their feathered—and waterproofed— boots. He also magnified the Eastern look with tunic and bloomer sets complemented by boots wrapped with multicolored laces and topped by wizard's turbans. In the same afternoon session with Gernreich were Victor Joris for Cuddlecoat and Oleg Cassini. Joris' costumes were clearly for the woman who likes the stark look. Long coats—the designer himself didn't know whether to call them midi or maxi—topped loose fitting pants for daytime, evening and in-between. The piece de resistance, however, was a huge circular cape over a black vest and pants. Joris said he cut and sewed it himself to get the enormous swirl. For swirling in and out of Dracula movies presumably. Cassini, who had the misfortune to be the last designer to present his collection, had to contend with a steady stream of tired women who were leaving early. "I'm showing at Grand Central Station when everyone's taking his train," he lamented at one point. Those who stayed got a look at what Cassini calld "young clothes for young girls who can afford the prices." The collection opened with four Scotch plaids with short, swinging skirts worn with those thin knee socks. Cassini, who sported a plaid tie himself, noted that the dresses all could be coordinated with items from the men's collection he showed last Sunday. MRS.

Since the showing featured the briefest of play clothes, this close range view revealed the models' most conspicuous flaws. Can you guess what they Were? It all started when one of the most attractive girls came into view in a sleeveless, very short beach dress. At first glance- perfect—but from my brightly lit spot the imperfections were all too apparent. Her elbows were rough and wrinkled, her knees were rough and red, and the heels of her bare feet had taken drastic punishment, too. Unfortunately, she wasn't unique. Several other professional beauties had obviously lavished more than enough time on face and hair but had sadly overlooked the elbows, knees and heels. Granted, head-to-toe fastidiousness is work. Granted, too, it's more fun to "w'ork" on hair and makeup than spend time on arms, legs and feet which are generally covered by sleeves, stockings and shoes. But when unveiled as arms, legs and feet are at some time or other, will yours pass the test with flying colors? Or do bees knees bug you? . . Are your heels as vulnerable as Achilles'?. . . Do your elbows betray a leaning towards rough treatment? If you answer Yes to a"ny or all of these, take a few minutes daily or at least half an hour weekly to negotiate the following joint proposals for prettiness: Clean Them: Any of these problem areas respond to soft scrubbing with superfatted soap and a nylon brush. Heels are hardy enough to Withstand pumice stone, but they appreciate soft-soaping as well. Do try these special extras: Oatmeal and water mixed together makes a super scrub. Elbows (and knees) lighten and brighten if you twirl half a squeezed lemon on them. Cream Them: Warm a little olive oil in two custard cups and rest your elbows in them for a smooth 10-minute soak. shelf. Leave on 10 minutes; rinse off with warm, then cool, water for the smoothest elbows, knees, heels ever! Or, try fresh cucumber juice mixed with skim milk powder which helps bleach and baby simultaneously. Cover them: If you insist (please, please don't) on leaning on desks, tables or other hard rough surfaces, keep your elbows covered. Every time you lean, you stretch the skin just a little bit more. Unhappily, once a "pouch" is formed, you'll never be able to undo it. Cover up redness or spider veins on knees with adept use of a spotstick (check behind your knees as well). Heels fare best with covering, too, be it stocks or footlets which prevent the build-up of ugly callouses. Your elboWs, knees and heels may seem like a very small part of the beautiful image. And truthfully, if you care for them conscientiously, they'll remain quietly in the background. If you let them go, however, the day will come when their imperfections may ruin an otherwise flawless impression. JUST FOR YOU: For an eight- hour caretaker, work castor oil, cocoa butter or lanolin Into these rough spots before bedtime — the softening treatment goes on whUe you sleep. Plan September Wedding Dip a cotton square into these self-same bowls and apply the oil to your knees while you're soaking. For your heels (and feet), before bathing rub them with a little baby oil ... enough will remain to act as a softening treatment even after bathing. Lavish hand or baby lotion on all these areas whenever you think of it and every time you use face cream, remember to "wipe" the excess off on your cream-craving elbows. Coddle Them: Further beautify by applying a special mask to make these areas feel "loved." Beat up an egg white slightly with a little skim milk poWder plus a few drops of mint flavoring from your pantry Mr. and Mrs. Roy D.

MISS LeMAY Clubs, Organizations 7-fi Is tbe computer a better matchmaker than Cupid? Answer: After studying 500 marriages made with the help of computers and 500 conventional, courtship-inspired marriages, a West German professor concludes that the computer has a better aim for marital happiness than Cupid. He found 18 per cent fewer divorces among the "computer married" couples ihan among the others; 02 per c*nt of the computer couples said they were happy, as oppofpd to only 37 per cent of those who met and married in the usual way. Are all power-seekers a threat to society? Answer* Power is dangerous In the ha,ids of those who seek It as compensation for unhappiness or a sense of personal Inadequacy Some psychologists lay no one should hold public eflioe wjw Is not basically hap- py and self-confident. Yet a person can be ambitious for positions of leadershiu if he is capable of carrying out the duties of those offices because of his training ;«nd ability, not because he is anxious to wield authority- Should young people be •happy as larks' all the time? Answer: Older people often think that because young people are young they should never be anything but supremely happy. But youngsters have their pert, ods of depression, too, brought on by: .school problems, dating, parental relationship, growing maturity, etc. Even those who are not hippies or beatniks ex- perienc<> unhappy moments that are bas^rt on a feeling of Insecurity, the feeling that they won't measure up to the demands of life. Sheinwold on Bridge This Hand Abandons Old Rules «D 1868. King Feature*, synd., Inc.) By ALFRED SHEINWOLD People talk a lot about'our debt to the genius who invented the wheel, but there's a 1 conspiracy of silence about ,what we owe to the man who first discovered that it isn't necessary to draw trumps on all hands. Thanks to his courage, even respectable people are now willing to leave a trump out. South, in today's hand, was a conformist. He Wore a shirt, a tie and a jacket. He wore shoes on his feet and no hair on his chin. In short, he was a square, and he played the hand squarely into the ground. West wOn the, first trick with the queen of diamonds and continued with the jack. South ruffed the second diamond and followed the rule he had been taught in his first days as a bridge player: he drew trumps- South led out the ace of trumps, then the king of trumps and finally a low trump. All of this may have, made South .feel virtuous and may, have opened his pores, but it did nothjng for his partner's blood pressure. When the hearts failed to break South had to lose one trick in each suit. Down one. Leave Trump Out South would make his contract if he forgot the foolish rule of drawing trumps. After drawing just two rounds of ttrumps with the ace and king, South should leave the last trump at large. Instead of leading another trump, which would remove the last trump from dummy, South should begin to lead out his hearts, from the top down.
