Traditional bride replaced Skin's for revealing fashions PARIS (Reuter) Bosom- revealing, bra-less fashions tea- bring transparent taps were a major theme of designer Unga- Airing fashion collection SDOWR ncrc. Slit skirts highlight the legs while tbe boom b almost al- ways dearly storm under the sheer printed vote and chiffon tops. Slim straight daytime dresses place all accent on deep plunging bathing suit Salvation Army home opens for girls on probation HAMILTON (CP) The Sal- vation Army has opened a home for girls m probation, its first in Canada. Major Charles Eoorman, its administrator, says it can ac- commodate 12 girls between the ages of 16 and 20, referred to them by the courts. Their probation time may be from three to 18 months. Some of them may be able to get jobs, take vocational training or get special help if they need it. "The girls' may stay with us until they are ready to be re- turned to the Major Boorman said. "We shall also do follow-up work, by keeping in touch with the community which they come from." Major Boorman's wife has taken charge of the decorating, and has tried to make tbe resi- dence as homelike as possible. The bedrooms are all in dif- ferent colors. All of them have bulletin boards where the girls may pin up their own treasures. The small dining room tables WANTED MOTOR HOME RENTAL can accommodate extra people if the Kiris have guests. The girls will be expected to help with the work in the kitchen, and Mrs. David Taylor, the domestic superv i s o r, win give them cooking lesson. There is a recreation room, a craft and hobby room.

BASIL'S MEN'S CLUB necklines cut in wide V'j or deep oval scoops that barely cover the Up of the bosom. The naked "bird" in a gilded cage even replaces the tradi- tional bridal govvn in this un- conventional collection. A mannequin walks on stage encased in gilt bars complete with the bird cage hook above her head, wearing nothing but a gold-metal loincloth. The bridesmaid is almost equally niked, wearing a scattering of bronze-colored metal leaves. COMBINE PATTERNS Ungaro's more serious fash- ions have a Far West theme with florals often combining two or three different patterns in the same outfit, with knotted kerchiefs or loose neckties, and flat-crowned cowboy hats as accessories. Hubert de Givenchy carried on the hot pants theme, fea- turing sexy shorts in nearly all his spring collection. Givenchy opened with a group of terry cloth beach en- sembles with matching tunics or long gonduras, turbans and wedge-soled sandals all made of towelling. Shorts also were shown with matching checkboard, gabar- dine tailored jackets, and fea- tured "shirt-shorts" cut all in one piece paired with bulton- down-the-front skirts. Shorts were featured throughout town wear, worn under suits with pleated skirts opening up the front. But the blazer jacket took priority, shown either with skirt aud shorts or culottes. Wide-legged trouser skirts evolved from several of Given- chy's skirt dresses, shown in small geometric, printed silks with long sleeves and scarf necklines. SHUN MATCHING SKIRTS The big message, however, was shorts teamed to slit skirts. Shorts also appeared without matching skirts, while navy blue hot pants were fea- tured with a matching blazer jacket. In the Guy Laroche spring fashion collection evening clothes featured stylized geo- graphical influences including the African bumoose covered with cross-stitch embroidery, Chinese dresses with high necklines and slit skirts, cen- tral European peasant-type dresses. The collection also included 1930s-style crepe and chiffon dancing dresses with split-level hemlines or bias-cut panelled skirts, and pastel crept dresses with rang waisted loose sleeve- less tops and sun-ray pleated skirts, accompanied by match- ing loose cardigan jackets and ankle-strap shoes. Laroche's colors are bright and offbeat, with orange re- peated constantly, and lots of yellow, toast, tangerine, pow- der blue and all the beiges. He shows plenty of city shorts both as integral cos- tumes and worn under suit skirts or split-seamed dresses.

BOTTOMS UP LONDON wno wear Union Jack paper panties got a slap across their bottoms from heraldic expert John Brooke-Little. He called for the government to state where and when the flag may be displayed. But the word from Carnaby Street, one of London's fashion spots, is that Union Jack gear is "bad Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My huband reads your column every day. When you print a letter that gives the husband a break he always says, "Hey, look at this one I'm addressing this tetter to him and if I'm lucky enough to see it in the paper I'm going to say, "Hey, look at this one." DEAR SWINGER: You are nearly 40. Your children are growing up and they really don't know you. You haven't been around home rcuch. You don't know me very well either, Whenever I try to talk about things that trouble me you shut roe off by calling me a "nag." In a few years (sooner than you think) you'll be too tired to swing. The chicks you've been charing will suddenly not seem worth the effort. You'll want to be part of a family. But it will be too late. Your children will be strangers. You did not want to be part of their lives when they needed you and they will not permit you to become part of their lives when you need them. I used to feel that I had failed you. I blamed myself for not being a better wife. Now I know that no matter what I had done the results would have been tbe same. You weren't interested in a better ANY wife. So I've built a life which doesn't include you and I'm Happier Than You Think O.K., Ann, print it and I'll let you know what happens. wife DEAK WIFE: Thanks for your letter. Keep me posted. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You stated recently in a speech for the Navy Wives in Washington, B.C., that the thing you ire trying to do in your column is educate people. here's an opportunity. I'm a receptionist for a busy pediatrician. I'm new in this job, trying to get acquainted with the work and the patients. For some strange reason people resent being asked who they are. They act insulted and hurt. Or they give the impression you are' prying. Here are some of the answers I've been getting: "I have an appointment for Look in your book." "I've been coming here for The doctor knows who I am." And here's a beauty. "I'm this child's mother." Yesterday when I asked a woman her name she said, "I was here twice last month. If you can't rtmember my name that's YOUR problem." Please tell people that a little common courtesy would help expedite matters. I don't care who they are but the doctor would like to he can't remember Hoo Out There DEAR YOO-HOO: Here's your letter and I hope it helps. DEAR ANN LANDERS: We just came from another rotten dinner at my mother's house. The food is so terrible a person can actually leave the table hungry. The place is so filthy it's unbelievable. Junk is stacked everywhere. I'll bet she hasn't vacuumed tbe rugs in six months. Don't suggest that we invite her to our place because when we do she talks until our ears drop off. At least when we go there we can leave when we want to. What is your opinion of a mother who invites you to dinner and greets you with a dirty house and serves a meal that is just plain garbage? Reviled DEAR R.: If your mother is such a rotten cook and lousy housekeeper she didn't get that way overnight. You grew up in her house and survived on her cooking. Something else is bug- ging you and I hope you find out what it is.

Nova holds a lot. It's not too small. Nava. The not-too-big, not-too-small car. Of the many different features that make Nova "just right" for so many different people, price is one of the most important. When you consider what you get, and what you pay, you'll realize.Nova means value. Big value! Here's what you get. Nova is just 189.4 inches from end to end and a mere 72.4 inches across the beam. While it fits into normal-size garages, is easy to handle, and a snap to park particularly for the ladies, Nova is also big enough not to get blown around on. the highway or bounced around on rough-ish roads. The standard six or V8 engines work every gallon of gas to the very last drop. 3-speed manual transmis- sion is standard, but you can order 4-speed manual, semi-automatic Torque-Drive, fully automatic Power- glide or Turbo Hydra-malic. Your Nova sedan will seat six adults and there's room for five in the coupe. In either case, the trunk is big enough for a whole family's luggage. What do you pay? Right now, your Chevrolet dealer has a lot of catching up to do, just as fast as he can. So go in and talk. Make a deal. Nova is big value at the best of times; for the next few weeks it could be something fantastic! 1971.You've changed. We've changed. Everything's GO at your Chevrolet Dealer's!
