18 THE IHHBRIDGI HEBAID Monday, July 13, 1970 Seen Everywhere At New York Showings Gaucho Look Held Over In Fall Fashion By MARGARET NESS NEW YORK (CP) Two of last season's top fashion items are holdovers for fall, 1970. The South American gaucho look has returned with in- creased impact and" the Mexi- can-inspired poncho is back, though rath slightly lessened emphasis. The gaucho look was every- where at the recent New York because it bridges- the skirt-length prob- lem. The straight, wide pants, well below the knee, provide a psychological transition from mini to midi. Also, the effect is avant garde. Women will have to be somewhat extroverted to wear tile total gaucho look of pants, crop jacket, shirt and wide, authentic gaucho belt as shown by Davidow's new Ar- gentinian designer. Anne Klein really went all out for the gauchos. Her out- fits were mostly intended for casual wear, like her leather gaucho pants with a cheetah print blouse and a leather vest. But she did include sev- eral that could be worn as street suits, such as grey tweed gaucho pants with a brown leather battle jacket.

"We are urging women across the country not to shop on the first Saturday of each month and to boycott products manu- factured by firms that are major war said Katherina L. Camp, league president. Tightening household pur- sestringi! against the arma- ments suppliers will allow mil- lions of women to dramatize their opposition to the war in In- dochina, she said. About 50 women attended an emergency planning conference for a worldwide women's war on war recently, including Cor- etta Scott King, widow of Mar- tin Luther King Jr., and Bess Myerson Grant, New York City's commissioner for con- sumer affairs. "There is_one massive group included Robert Hall's flecked tweed pants and soft crepe shirt, with a slender and centre-fringed leather belt, and his purple plaid pants will] a mauve sweater. The gaucho is also for city wear. Modifications have turned the look into smart pant-suits or pant-dresses that even conservative women could wear. One of the best was by Kasper for Joan Les- lie. Tlfe jacket of the black- and-white doncgal tweed gau- cho suit was bordered with black ric-rac braid. Modelia combines grey flannel pants with a banana-color safari jacket over a printed crepe de chine blouse. Suzy Perette's tweed gaucho dress with wide leather belt and patch pockets was matched with1 its own fringed shawl. Big unlined capes teamed up with gaucho pants in the collections of both Anne Klein and Junior Sophisticates. And many of the new jump-suits used gaucho-length pants. A western influence also ap- peared in fringed gaucho cos- tumes. Several were laced up the front of their high-riding gaucho pants. Gauchos even popped up in late-day moods, such as Cal- vin Klein's high-waisted pau- cho pants and nailhead-stud- ded vest, worn with a stock- tie crepe shirt. Perette teamed up brown velvet gau- cho pants with a cream satin top and red-and-silver rib- boned belt. Junior Sophisti- cates showed1 jewelled gaucho jump-suits for evening. All of which shows that the gaucho is versatile, popular and likely to find its way, in one of its varied forms, into a lot of wardrobes. "The fringed poncho now Is moving into high fashion expert Eleanor Lam- bert reported at the American Design Showings. Last season it was mostly a casual ward- robe item and worn more by the young. The fall poncho isn't a dom- inant factor, but when it ap- peared it was effective. Some ponchos were dropped from the shoulders to the waistline, making a skirt, but most de- signers used them in the usual cape style. But it was in the evening collections that the poncho shone, especially in Malcolm Starr's huge chiffon ponchos, ostrich-bordered and w o r n with matching floor-length gown. rr .1 -rawiilu u Ann Landers THE GAUCHO LOOK-This evening version of the gaucho look, by Calvin Klein, features gaucho pants worn with a nailhead-studded bolero and crepe shirt.

In addition to Mrs. Grant and Mrs. King, the "shopper's stop- page" was put together with the aid of Jane Hart, wife of Sena- tor Philip A. Hart, Jeanette Rankm, former congress- woman, and Felicia Bernstein, wife of composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein.

No children under 76 allowed new education minister, the only woman in Prime Minister death's .Conservative cabinet las clashed head-on with teach- ers as well as political oppo- nents over an issue that will shape the future of most of the country's children. Margaret Thatcher came in for some of the roughest tongue-lashing ever meted out to a woman in the Commons when she announced a halt to Labor's machinery for compel- ling state-supported secondary schools to incorporate the more elite grammar schools. The Labor party's education policy was aimed at eliminating the intellectual class distinction in British state schools, which divide pupils over 11 into bright and not-so-bright groups by a controverrial examination known as the "ll-Flus." The bright pupils proceed to grammar schools, historic insti- tutions that traditionally attract fine teachers and produce a crop of university en- trants. The less-able children get shunted into "secondary modern" schools, where the ed- ucation is practical rather than academic. Its products are des- tined more for the factory floor than the university campus. In its last months of office, the VVilson government in- formed local authorities all over England and Wales (Scotland has a different system) that they must submit schemes for the change. RESENT COERCION Many local authorities fiercely resented the govern- ment's indication that state funds would dry up unless they co-operated. Cities with famous old grammar schools were par- icularly sensitive. The Conservatives declared in he recent that they choice back to local authorities. Mrs. Thatcher now has imple- nented this by withdrawing La- xjr's instructions on the sub- ect. This promptly let loose a storm of abuse. The National Union of Teach- ers is furious because she did not consult it first. In the Commons, former edu- cation minister Edward Short, once a headmaster, lashed out at her for her "doctrinaire, re- actionary" decision to revert to a system that was "education- ally indefensible, socially unjust and economically wasteful." He predicted it would lead to chaos within months. election campaign would throw the Canadian Mothers' Union Requests More Autonomy LONDON (CP) Phylli: Jutchinson of Winnipeg, presi dent of the Mothers' Union o: Canada, urged the organize lion's former parent body to alter "its colonial attitude" to- wards its member groups.

A few "days ago I heard on the radio that a woman who lives in London and they mentioned her by her driver's licence test for the 39Uh time. The poor thing had been trying for 11 years to pass and now she is giving up. She invested over on driving lessons, tutors and test fees which are required in England before one can take the examinations. Can you imagine that woman's shame after having failed so many times? And then to have it publicized all over the world must have destroyed her. To my way of thinking it is the most heartless thing I ever heard of. Why would they do it? Sorry For Her DEAR SORRY: Everyone likes to read the this story certainly qualifies. It also makes the people who have failed their driving tests three and four times feel better. I agree, however, it would have been just as well had they not mentioned her name. DEAR AKN LANDERS: I feel compelled to write in refer- ence to "Hung Up" the woman who didn't know whether or not to marry a man who hated her young daughter by a previous marriage. The poor kid happened to bear a striking resemblance to his ex-wife whom he despised. I married for the second time seven years ago. My daugh- ter was nine at the time. She was an image of her father, whom my husband loathed. I, too, thought love would con- quer all. Here is the way it turned1 out. My husband picks on her unmercifully. She hates him. The girl has turned from a smiling, pleasant person into a sullen, unhappy Bar. I am constantly in the middle. Her step- father never refers to her by name. It's always "your daugh- ter." The guilt I feel for bringing up this child in such a hostile environment is driving me crazy. If "Hung Up's" daughter is hiding in her room NOW, refusing to come out even for meals, I shudder to think of the future. Unless the mother is willing to ditch the girl in a boarding school and then ship her off to Europe during summer vaca- tions, she is in for a hell on earth. If she doesn't it will be hell for the girl. Either way the marriage is doomed. If the mother who wrote hasn't already made the trek to the altar I hope shfe changes her mind. Too Late For Me, I Married Him DEAR TOO LATE: I received a surprising number of let- ters which read a great, deal like yours. Most of the writers were women, but a few men had a similar story to tell about second wives who mistreated their children. How sad for all Df them. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell folks that when they see a person with a black eye not to ask, "What Anybody with half a brain can see that somebody probably hung on a haymaker. And while you're at it, tell people that the jokes about shiners are not funny to the person who has one. I have had two in four weeks and I am sick of nosey questions and stale wisecracks. Thank you. Ducked Too Late DEAR DUCKEY: Two in four weeks? A person who has that much trouble with his eyes must also have a problem with his mouth. If ten isn't enough, count to forty.
