Lufberans Name Youth Direcfor CHICAGO — The Rev. 1..; David Brown of Miniieapolis.| Minn., has been named youtlv director for the American Lutheran Church, a new 2,20(1 : 000 -member church body which, will be formed nest April. 1 Rev. Brown, associate youth' director of the F.vanp,e!ical Lutheran Church {l:.LC) sincej 1955 and actin;; director for the past 18 months, was elected here to serve as executive director of youth activities of!., .#, kj i the ALc. Nafional Chnstian Council fo Mark His nomination for the position came from a joint committee composed of representatives from the new body's Luther League and Youth Activity boards. The latter board elected him to the post. In his posititju as executive director of youth activities. Rev. Brown will have responsibility for the Luther League program, as well as for voluntary youth service anil vocational guidance activities in the ALC. New color combinations, such as olive and gray, coupled with new Continental cut give fall suits for boys fresh appearance. Above, shorter coat length, slightly pinched waistline arc two of the distinguishing features of new style. Fabric here is a wrinkle-resistant blend of 70 per cent Orion and 30 per cent worsted. At left, bold bUie- gray and charcoal plaid distinguishes this sport coat. Two- button closure, peaked lapels and cutaway coat front are most noteworthy marks of styling. Sports Styles Borrowed by Fashion Field NEW YORK—(NEA)—Styles frequently follow news and just as often they follow sports. And so it's interesting to note the first reports of the uniforms which will be worn in various international competitions by American athletes in the near future. This summer, there are the Pan American games in Chicago. The team—both male and female athletes—will ditch the traditional blue flannel blazers (the off-duty and formal get-up) for a blue non- flannel blazer. They've adopted a handsome wash-and-wear blazer, made of 55 per cent kodel, polyester fiber, and 45 per cent rayon. This means that the wash- and-wear idea is getting an official nod. The kodei-rayon blend can be washed in machines, dried in machines and worn immediately thereafter. With the push these blazers are getting, they stand a good chance of being a popular item, even in nonathletic circles. Winter Olympics Next February, there are the Winter Olympic Games in Squaw Valley, Calif. By now, most of the winter athletes— skiiers, in particular — have abandoned the age-old idea of piling on dozens of layers of woolies in favor of modern, lightweight, insulated winter outfits. The U.S. team next winter will wear these more comfortable, just-as-warm outfits. In the summer of '60, the Olympic Games will be held in Rome. Already, one significant change has been announced. The American equestrians will U. S. athletes participating in the Pan American games this summer in Chicago will wear non-flannel wash-and- wear blazers.

These adjustments are made with either slide fasteners or buckle straps. And there are several different styles which come with matching belts. Trimmer Lines There are the continental-influenced slacks, which are trimmer and narrower (and don't try to put them on over your shoes). These have pleatless construction and half-top pockets, and look best if cuffless.

Extra Service Incidentally, if you want extra service from porters, you might be interested in learning that the porters said they gave special attention to travelers who seemed to be experienced and, thus, perhaps more appreciative tippers. But don't try to get special service by wearing expensive clothes. Nobody will notice, if this survey is to be trusted, except your wife. Sulf Sfill Tops for Campus Wear No college wardrobe is complete without a suit, and this season's crop is a bumper one! St. Louis designers offer three shapes.

This, again, will proliably start a trend among the horsey set. So you have to watch the sports pages to catch the new fashion trends in the making. Maybe we'll have straw football helmets yet. Custom Suits Who buys custom-made suits? The answer, says, Louis D'Andrea, whose firm (according to the Amalgamated Clothing Workers Union) is the largest custom-made tailor in the nation, is that there's a relationship between success and custom-made suits. "To be successful," says D'Andrea, "a man must be ambitious. Ambition is an off{spring of ego, or vanity, whichever you want to call it. If we did not have such men, there were hardly be any history made. "Great men throughout history have found it necessary to distinguish themselves from the masses by wearing special uniforms. Why should the successful and affluent professional or businessman be less proud of his achievements? Naturally a man who has arrived is entitled to indulge his vanity. It is this exclusive category of prominent men who comprise our largest volume of custom-made business." D'Andrea says that successful men are generally in their mid-30s or beyond, and they have a tendency ito develop a larger girth and broader shoulders, thus making them harder to fit in ready-to-wear clothes. And custom-made suits enable a man to try his hand at designing. "He may like cuffs on his sleeves," says D'Andrea, "or a one-button jacket or narrow or wide lapels or peaked or rounded lapels. If he has the means, he is entitled to -indulge his whims and his vanity and, above all, to feel perfectly comfortable and at ease in what he wears." i)f historic Christian sites and of present day Christian institutions such as schools and so- !cial centers, and programs of religious music, drama and discussions broadcast on radio and television.
