Not as startling perhaps as the one called the New Look back in 1947-that would be too much to expect But given the uneasy state ol fashion it is certainly welcome. The New Look put Paris back on the fashion map after World war II, and it left its mark on clothes women wore for a dec- ade thereafter. This one may return to the couture some ol the prestige it has lost to ready to wear. It's the New Look with modern comfort. Would Be Proud What Marc Bohan has con- tributed to fashion for next spring, and conceivably for the next year or two, is a new shape. Christian Dior, who died 10 years after his bombshell, would be proud of him. Bohan has been guiding the destinies of Dior since the early 1960s. First off, skirts have been lengthened, to about midenlf. Second, skirts have been widened. That makes the long- er ones look more palatable. Third, all the high, tight arm- holes and plastered-to-the- body tops have disappeared. That means women will be able to move around, and even go without bras if they want, without looking ridicu- lous. The very first tablished the mood. outfit es- It was a gray flannel flared skirt with a short-sleeved jacket in a lighter ;ray and with one of those new shirts underneath. Made It was followed by a gray and white striped pantsuit and it mmediately put the people who are on the Rome-Paris fashion trek at ease. It was clear that .he clothes would be suitable for lose Kennedy, the Duchess of Windsor and other couture cus- tomers as well as for women who buy their clothes ready made, said Harry Larimer of Lord and Taylor. Tlie truth is, Rohan, having established his theme, carried it throughout the collection. There was a loose, smock-like shantung raincoat, two-piece dresses with sleeves like scarves falling in points from the shoulders. It's not that he designed never-seen-beforc clothes. He's picked up ideas that arc In the air, that other designers have played around with. But, he has put them together with such authority and such pleas- ing results that he may very well change the shape of fash- ion. At least, he has given the couture a reason for its exis- tence. Actually, it's been not a bad day for the couture. Jean-Louise Scherrer launched what is prob- ably his best collection to date. He's back there in the s it the pre-New Look of jut, his revivals have a good deal of charm and look like fun, marcelled hair, padded shoulders and all. The makeup uns to red, red lipstick, rouge and penciled eyebrows. Feather Boas His shirtdresses aie p'.ea'.cd too, in the softest apricot, blue or peach tones. He has whim- sical evening dresses, replete with feather boas, embroidered in white and silver beads, that show Paris still has the workrooms to turn out the stuff. Philippe Venet's show is mod- est by Paris couture standards, and so are his clothes. White coats over pale crepe dresses may look unassuming, but they are pretty luxurious, when you come to think about it. That's the. way things go here, quiet luxury so the gold ankle-strap shoes were a shocker. Well, you have to break loose sometimes. WIN was the bride's sister Sandra Erger. The at- maid Miss tendants' gowns, trimmed in lace with a blue ribbon, were royal blue with square neck lines, long puff sleeves and ruf- fles at the hem. Each carried a single white mum.

(AP) The Georgia house of representa- tives has rejected ratification When Thelma Miller de-ices her Of the proposed Equal Rights sidewalks, she not only gets rid of the ice but occasionally reaps a good crop of strawberries in the spring. Mrs. Miller said she has used fertilizer, instead of salt or melting pellets, to keep her walks clear for about seven _i years. One year, the melting snows and rain water washed the fer- tilizer off the walks and into nearby strawberry beds. "Boy, did we have good, big strawber- ries that the Indianapolis housewife said.
