Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta English villages protect tradition of Morris dancing THAXTED, England (CP) Although its origins go back to pagan times, Morris dancing still thrives in many English villages. Originally, the dance was connected with fertility rites but through the centuries it became a form of communal entertainment'. Some authorities say it first appeared in England during the Crusades and others that the soldiers returning home from France during the Hundred Years' War (1338- 1453) took it to England and that it originated in France, Flanders or Spain. Because Morris dancers sometimes blackened their faces, and some still do, it was thought that the name Morris might be a corruption of the word Moorish, although the dance was known before the Moors came to Spain. The blackening of faces probably followed an ancient tradition which kept the identities of the dancers secret for superstitious reasons. But wherever the Morris dance came front, it is a popular entertainment in England and there are numer- ous annual festivals, favorite dates being Whitsun and May Day. DONATIONS BRING LUCK There .are usually eight dancers, all men, in a "side" or team and they dance to traditional music supplied by an accordion and fiddle or a pipe and tabor. Traditional Morris characters who do not take part in the dancing but amuse the crowd are the Fool and the Hobby Horse. During the 16th century such characters as Robin Hood and Maid Marian found their way into the tradition. A Bagman collects coins and these donations are supposed to bring luck. The dancers wear white trousers and shirts with colorful waistcoats or braces and straw hats bearing flowers. Small bells stitched onto pieces of colored leather are bound around the dancers' lower trouse legs and jingle as they dance. The Cotswold Hills, southwest of the English Midlands, are an important source of Morris dancing traditions'. The tunes and steps vary from place to place. It was at the village of Headington, near Oxford, that the Cotswold Morris dancing tradition was revived after a decline due to poor social conditions in the last century. Cecil Sharp, founder of the English Folk Dance Society in 1910, had seen the Headington Morris dancers in 1899 and travelled from village to. village recording the steps and music. As a result of Sharp's work new Morris teams were formed and six of them joined to form the Morris Ring in 1934. Membership of the ring now totals almost 100 teams or clubs and many more all over the country are recognized.

NEW YORK (CP) Suits and two-piece dresses are back in the fashion news this spring after being largely replaced in recent years by the costume of dress with jacket or coat. Pantsuits still are in most manufacturers' lines. But more and more skirts are to be seen on city streets. The skirted suit can be elegant or casual. Pleats are almost compulsory, but wrapped and bias skirts are also popular. However, the eye can be de- ceived. "What seems like a suit is more often a dress with reported fashion au- thority Eleanor Lambert in her forecast at the American Designer Showings for the press. Kaper has a number of these non-suit suits in his collection for Joan Leslie. He describes them as "pared down, unconstructed with roomy jackets, tiny tank tops and fluid shirtings." They include a slouch jacket ensemble with deepsleeved cardigan over a skimmer dress and a striped horizontal weave knit dress with a patterned cardigan. SUITS TRAVEL WELL Adele Simpson presents a spring-and-after suit in jac- quard cotton. She also likes shaped jackets over swingy bias skirts. Jerry Silverman also offers suits that travel well. One is a pin dot on black woven cotton, worn with a white blouse and red tie. Some suit components have multiple functions, like Oscar de la Renta's long jacket with open neckline, which looks right either with his heap- hipped full skirts or his straight-legged pants. Colors for daytime may be pale and neutral or vivid and clean as .new paint, said Miss Lambert. Bright red seems the dominant color among the vivids and carries such descriptive names as red furry, poppy, Chinese lacquer red and flame. Blues are called cornflower, Bristol blue, electronic and canton blue. There is also a lot of celery and Kelly green and some lemon or sun yellow, marigold and orange. The pale shades include pure white, cream and ivory as well as platinum, raw sugar beige, sand and oatmeal. Leo Narducci likes the combination of ecru with navy or coffee and chamois with wine and olive green. And, of course, for spring there's always navy. One de- signer calls the season's shade midnight hour navy. Girls helped VANCOUVER (CP) Reva Dexter, counsellor at Eric Hamber secondary school, complains: "As soon as I start to stir things up at school .1 get notes saying 'cut out that women's lib stuff." Sh.e says girls are discriminated against in schools. "Women have to de- velop some sort of positive self-concept. But the way things are structured this is difficult to do."
