The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta January THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 23 Costumes through the centuries housed in Bath museum By MARGARET NESS BATH, England (CP) For anyone interested in fashions, this is the city to visit on a trip to Britain. Here is the largest perma- nent collection of fashions to be found in the world. It's housed in the Assembly Rooms, opened in 1771 with a ball attended by people. The Museum of Costume has been located here since 1993. Every aspect of fashionable clothing is included. There are articles so the displays are changed at various times. The collection starts with Elizabethan times. In the centre glass case in the Card Room was a coif, that stand-out ruffled neck- piece of the Elizabethan age. It's odd to realize that its wea- rer could have attended some of Shakespeare's plays. In the same case was a man's night- cap with intricately worked designs. In the early 17th cen- tury night air was considered unhealthy. So when the mast- er of the house came home he changed his hat for an elaborate nightcap and then changed that for a plain one for bed. Of special interest to men in this room was a nun's suit in deep-pile velvet. Early 18th- century gentlemen favored colors all shades of pink from light to rose to brick red and all ranges of browns from palest biscuit to darkened chestnut, including gold and apricot. In another room is the wedding dress of Lord Byron's bride. The gown is simple white muslin. Her going-away costume was a pelisse of thin satin. This was for a long carriage drive on a cold January day in 1815. SHOW BYRON'S COSTUME There's also a costume of Byron's. He bought it on his grand tour of Europe in 1809 and gave it to an attractive woman friend for a mas- querade. There are costumes from the period when Beau Nash 1674-1761 rled Bath society as the master of ceremonies. In the Victorian section there's a tartan overdress made in 1873 by a French dressmaker for Alexandra, Princess of Wales. And Queen Mary is represented by one of her famous toques in beige with feather pom-pom. She wore it at the Jubilee Drive in 1935. In the Panorama Room the clothes were arranged in scenes with painted backdrops of period furniture. They progress from 1827 to late Vic- torian. Several groups have Bath settings for added interest. One represented a room in the Cir- cus a swank residential sec- tion, so the clothes were even- ing gowns. Another was a Pultenev Street backdrop with a genuine three-wheel Bath chair. Crinolines with six pet- ticoats or a cage were the fashion of the day, in 1859. A cluttered mid-Victorian parlor featured a young girl showing off her wedding gown to her grandmother. In another scene long-skirted women .were playing croquet. When you've toured the museum, go down to the Pump Room in the City Centre where Beau Nash reigned and have lunch or afternoon tea in the charming Terrace Restaurant. FARMING EXPORTS The United States expects to export more than billion worth of agricultural produce in the current fiscal year. Hang in there! Standing up on a moving mini-bike is a trick even for people, but Pierre, a sure-footed poodle, makes it look easy as he takes a ride with 11-year- old Randy Certain of Dallas, Texas. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I have a problem. I look like you. Peo- ple are always stopping me on the street, in the super- market, any place at all, and asking me for advice I used to say, "I'm not Ann Landers You are but lately I've decided that maybe I can do some good (besides, they look so disappointed when I tell them I'm not So, a Ijttle advkfeV ft the problem isn't too com- plicated. Almost everyone thanks me and I see no harm in it (One lady kissed me.) I should also tell you, Ann, that I've signed a few autographs when they was no way out of it. Please say if it is O.K. I'm beginning to feel guilty. Carbon Copy In Houston Dear Copy: It is NOT O.K. Cut it out. And now if you'll move over, the real Ann Landers would like to stand up and say something to her readers. If you see me on the street, or any place at all, please say hello. But don't ask for ad- vice. I don't counsel on the hoof. It isn't fair to you OR to me. Dear Ann Landers: I am getting a divorce soon. My husband was physically abusive from the first month of our marriage This does not excuse what I did, however. I need your advice. Three years ago I started to see a married man. (No lec- tures, please.) I had two children with him. Now, the real problem My husband loves these kids and has no idea they aren't his. I have offered to forego support and alimony if he will give me complete custody. He has refused, saying he wants to support his children. I have changed my whole life and am behaving like a model mother I am not see- ing anyone but my conscience is bothering me. I feel it is morally wrong to let a man support children that are not his For this reason I think I should tell him Do you agree? Woman In Indiana Dear Woman: I have a nagging suspicion that the real reason you want to tell vour husband the children aren't his is so he will give you full custody. Sorry, Lady, according to law the kids are his. Any they MAY be his, biologically, as well. Keep quiet and settle for joint custody. Pass up the alimony if you want to, but don't try to cut this man off from the children. Kids need all the love they can any place they can get it. Dear Ann Landers: You hit it right on the head when you told the man who complained that his wife was a telephone yakker, "Maybe you don't talk to her and she feels the need to talk to SOMEBODY." I married a non- communicator. On the rare occasion that he feels like talking, he ridicules me tor asking such stupid questions. Our conversations always end up in a terrific argument. Women have more of a need to talk than men, especially the trapped housewife with young children. The telephone can be her link with the out- side world. He is out among people during the day so it's easy to see why he is content to read the paper and watch TV at night. If there's no con- versation it's O.K. with him. So, pardon me, Ann, if I seem to be a telephon-aholic. Made Me One Dear One: You and thousands of others. Alex- ander Graham Bell probably didn't know it but his inven- tion serves as "therapy" for a large segment of society. Thank you for saying it. Dear Ann Landers: Is it a little peculiar (to put it delicately) for a'24-year-old girl to sleep with from seven to ten dolls in her bed every night? Her collection is enor- mous, and she is still buying them I am only the stepmother so, of course, I have nothing to say. I raised five children of my own and none of them ever acted like this. We are moving soon and I would like to give all these dolls to the Goodwill. In my opinion it's time the little girl grew up Maybe I'm wrong, but I find it embarrassing when people see all the dolls in her room and ask, "How old is the I'm looking to you for sup- port, Ann. Please be on my side. Thanks. Very Con- fused. Dear V.C.; Giving the dolls to the Goodwill would not "help the little girl grow up." It would only make her bitter and resentful. If she gets comfort and pleasure out of her doll collection, no one has the right to deprive her of it, no matter how old she is. Dear Ann Landers: I have complete faith in both my clergyman and my psy- chologist, but they have given me conflicting advice pertain- ing to a matter that concerns my spiritual as well as my psychological well-being. I feel as if I am being torn in mid-air, unable to make a decision. The nature of the matter is too .personal to describe in a letter and I'm sure you couldn't print it, anyway. Do you have a suggestion as to how I might resolve the conflict? I trust your judg- ment completely and would do as you say. Confident in Cleveland Dear Confident: What you are asking is which "advisor" to listen to, the clergyman or the psychologist. Sorry, dear, I can't tell you. I know nothing about either Moreover, I have no clue as to the nature of the problem. Your best bet when faced with alternatives is to choose the least destruc- tive. CMyriRhtlftt FMM tMtfftnn, he.
