Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueidoy, April 10, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HIRALP Bare, ladylike look dominates evening fashions By MARGARET NESS NEW YORK (CP) The lady like look dominates the evening scene for spring and summer. Even the plunging necklines and the popular bare backs manage to look al- luring rather than blatantly sexy. As Oscar de la Renta says: "All the evening clothes have a sense of bareness but it is not provocative nakedness." No all evening styles, of course, are bare-topped. There are also romantic over- tones from some designers with ruffles and embroidery. But they are again lady like and not dramatic. For at-home parties or less formal occasions, the flowing caftan is still around, in filmy fabrics. And many late-day clothes are actually informal in double crepe, says fashion expert Eleanor Lambert. "They play up tennis sweater tops over long pleated skirts and little battle jackets over sexy bias dresses.'" But perhaps the most typi- cal late-day dress is a long white version of the shirtwaist with a tiny tucked waist that extends over the hipline, with full cuffed sleeves. It has an elegant simplicity. In Toronto couturier Ro- dolphe showed a shirtwaist style with bias skirt in a plaid-on-green-ground silk or- ganza. And Donald Brooks in- cluded several versions of the shirt look in different fabrics On the evening scene The ladylike look dominates evening wear for spring and summer with the plung- ing necklines and popular bare backs. The short cocktail dress, left, by Oscar de la Renta has a plunging halter bodice bordered with pleated ruffles matching the gay peplun. it has a full skirt and signature flower adds finishing touch. Long lithe dinner dress, right, is in black and white polka dot and edged in matching stripe fabric. Female athletes seek recognition Bishops condemn By KATHLEEN REX Torcnlo Globe and Mail TORONTO (CP) The boys at Humberside Collegiate Insti- tute are gouig to be left alone to cheer their school's male ath- letes at this years spring as- sembly. The girls are planning a ban- quet at which, for the first time in the school's 80-year history, a trophy will-be presented to the top girl athlete. The banquet speaker will be Laura Sabia of St. Catharines. Ont., a promi- nent rights activist. Humbersirfe's palace revolu- tion is part of a generally rising feeling that girl's athletics get short shrift in most public schools. The Toronto Secondary School Athletic "Association (TSSWAAI has submitted a re- port to the board of education deploring the fact that in many schools the bays get mos! of !he allotted to school teams tor travelling money. The report said some schools assume the money is for boys' teams only and the girls must raise their own money. A few physical education teachers said that boys, with Oldsters sponsor Korean TORONTO Kim -Jong Ho. a 12-year-old boy in South Korea, would certainly get "writer's cramp" if he decides to write to all his "relatives." The boy has acquired 32fi "grandparents" from Bcndaic Acres, a home for the elderly in suburban Scarborough. They contribute SJ2 a numlh through the Chris'San Chi Wren's Fund of Canada for fond, clothes, care and education.

And the i bishops said they are seeking i ways to reverse the recent I United States Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. i "We find that this majority opinion of the court is wrong and is entirely contrary to the I fundamental principles of mor- alityy' said a pastoral message of the National Council of Cath- olic Bishops. "In order to emphasize the special evil of abortion, under church law. those who undergo or perform an abortion place themselves in a state of ex- communication." Excommunication means that the subject is cut off from re- ceiving the sacraments. John Cardinal Cody, arch- bishop of Chicago, told a news conference Catholics must op- pose abortion as an immoral act and that "they have a moral obligation to protest it." Asked whether the bishops, had any real hope of over- turning the Supreme Court deci- sion. Cardinal Cody said: "We have great hope and very! great determination. "We have legai experts trying to come up with a proposition.'' as a pleated-front blush crepe, anemone patterned crepe de chine with Jong cardigan coat, white crepe with a cropped flannel jacket, and an all-over Fortuny tucked and niched white chiffon scattered with brilliants. At Holt Renfrew's import showings. Dior's eveining shirt dress was typi- cal of this mood. Then, too. the short party dress is back. A season ago women were charmed with the return to femininity and with the elegance of the floor- length gown. It has been ab- sent, except for the most for- mal occasions, for some years. Even the teen-agers ex- changed their limp draggly long skirts that, were practi- cal or suitable for many occa- cally a uniform for the new- to-them formals. Suddenly dressing up became exciting again. But it was soon evident that the floor-length wasn't practi- cal or suitable for many occa- sions. So back comes the short late-day dress. It can be extremely tailored, as a shirt dress but in rich fabrics, or it can be halter-neck and bare- back. However, where a long Petition approved BARI, Italy (AP) The gov- ernment approved the pension petition of E. 65-year-old woman farm worker, setting her sti- pend at five cents a month. bare-topped gown can look el- egantly complete, there's an unfinished look about a short bare-back dress. So some of the latter come with their own discreet triangular scarves or mantillas, as with Donald Brooks' short black lace ver- sions. Actually, while black isn't popular for floor lengths. did appear at the New York showings in short versions w several collections by top de- signers. As well as Brooks' blacks, there was Leo Narduc- ci's group of chiffons trimmed with whife organza or piped in black satin. John Anthony's short backless black chiffon was elegantly edged around the matching jacket with os- trich feathers. He also showed the other extreme in a simple princess black chiffon with long sleeves. Evening fabrics stress light- ness and lustre. Thev include crepe de chine, georgette, ul- tra-thin satin, silk matte jer- sey, printed organza, cotton voile and gossamer silk chif- fon. While pale pastel and ivory tones are still the spring-into- summer color spectrum for street and resort wear, more color has been added for evening: turquoise, shrimp, jonquil yellow, lettuce green. Evening clothes are deli" nitelv feminine and beautiful.
