Irish Fashion Showings Feature Peasant Theme DUBLIN (CP) The luck of the Irish mpvtd into tbt fashion field this year with the success of the peasant or gypsy look. Nothing could be more tai- lored to the talents of Dublin de- signers, who are making great play with the peasant theme in the seventh Irish Fashion. Fair, for buyers from Europe and tfarth America. .It's'a somewhat ironic devel- opment in the story of Irish fashion, which has performed a meteoric rise from cottage in- dustry to multi-mUtion-douar world trade in tittle more than 10 years. Designers who once strove to shed'the Irish-whimsy look in favor of an international sophis- tication now find the Paris and London fashion mood in tune with fringed shawls, swirling gypsy skirts in hand-woven tweed and rich country dyes. Fashion writers' who gathered in DubSn for a preview of the 1970 fair were predicting that this would bring about the most successful season yet for Irish Esigns in the world market Plenty of the traditional touch as in evidence at the slickly iresented press show in Dub- in's rebuilt Abbey Theatre, ypsy styles featuring tweed maxiskirts with shawk and bol- ero tops m vrrid nurple, amber and flame-red shades vied with medieval-style evening drpjses m fine crochet silk, sometimes teamed with hooded cloaks of contrasting color. Dublin's designers went ly for the mkn hemline, favor- ig a below knee level for suit with belted jackets also for the .top halves of rouser suits. But Dublin girls, wearing no- ceably brighter and better- made clothes than a few years ago, still seem wedded to the miniskirt. Some stores on smart jrafton Street are even selling ee-through microskirts of woven that would have scandalized Ireland's convent-educated cot- Much of the credit for the boxing Irish fashion industry, running at a year, compared with in 1860, goes to'the republican gov- ernment's thrusting export board.. As weE as mounting this coU rful 'annual' promotion oh fe of 50 local designers and manufacturers, it also provides hem with marketing expertise nd sales springboards through Is offices in Britain, Europe Canada and the United States.

"The general feeling for teachers is you're damned if you do and damned if yea dont" DEVELOPMENT LAGS He says experimeotal tocb- nkjues and greater freedom have come into use before there have been standards set and training available for their use. "We realty did not establish criteria to decide which chil- dren should have freedom. Most children need some kind of exposure to an the teaching methods. "There has been a tremen- dous lag in development hi teacher training and practice. "Certain staff and students do their best work in a very controlled environment, oth- ers need freedom. "What 1 think has to be B that we somehow have tradi- tional classes and methods combined with the ultra-pro- gressive. Even in an open school there must be easy ac- cess to an authoritarian ar- rangement, and vice versa.' He and the teachers say parents compound the difficul- ties by expecting too much, and the wrong ttoup. "The natural question today is 'What is the school going to The school is expected to attend to every social crisis, drugs, pollution and, as the church's effect has supped, to values and ethics as weD. We are also still expected to prov- ide students with technologi- cal- skffls, with vocational preparation." CANT MEET IT AIX Teachers are frustrated, he says. "You can't meet it all The educator who is honed has to arrive at the conclusion be just.doesn't always know what is right" A spokesman for the On- tario Secondary School Teach- ers' Federation says there is a great deal of corfusion about what teachers can ant should do about the particular problem of drugs. At same time there is an increas- ing recognition that they should do something.
