Elephant Authority for all this is a couple of French Red Cross nurses, who are here to brush up on the American way of wrapping a sore thumb. They are Jacqueline Vach-erot and Jane Martin. Miss Martin, who knew more English than I did French, was the spokesman most of the time. Neither of the nurses ever had seen America before. "American men," she said (this is a translation), "are better dressed than our men. They are full of life. They are happier, like they are just married. They seem to be quietly busy all day and they are busy at fun all the night after work." Jacqueline butted in to say she had been led to believe all American men particulaly those in Washington were always gasping for breath to get a big Job done. The French papers, she said, reported that workers in the capital hlppity-hopped around like crazy. She said she was a little disappointed. Jane Martin volunteered the observation that she thought the older ladies in America were "simply lovely." but that our young set could do with shorter skirts. Newer New Look Christian Dior, the French de signer who sold us the "new look" or longer sun. reversea ine neia In Paris a while back and dictated the "shorter, or. newer look." The French equivalent (from the girls) was that: "We fixed his wagon. We kind of laughed at him over there. We had made our skirts about a foot and a half from hem-to-floor a long time before. We not only, were ahead of the world, but alfead of the 'new-look' fellow." American women, in the opinion of the French ladles, are well dressed; but not as well dressed as the girls in France. This from Jane Martin: American women I have seen are somewhat of a pattern. AU of the dresses are alike. We don't do that In France. Either A woman makes her own clothes, or she goes to a tailor. We play for individuality. You seldom see one woman with a dress like her neighbor's. That is considered bad taste. Same with hats. We also go for darker colors in everything. We like them." (All of this is literal translation, although both girls spoke a little English. Both doodled on pads of paper in French while they talked.) The two nurses are here to at tend American schools of nursing. Jacqueline will go to the university of Texas at Oalveston and Jane goes to the University of Syracuse.
