Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Olobor 13, 197Z THE IETHBRIDGE KERAIO 19 Short dinner dress returns By MA11GAUKT NESS NEW YOKK (OF) The most important ffislunn news for evening is the return of (he shorl dinner or semi-for- mal. Last winter the floor length dress or skirl-amKop blan- keted the evening scene. They, even appeared at informal af- fairs. Older women welcomed them back and the younger .set was fascinated by the nov- elty. Important for fall evenings, too, is the dinner suit, both long and short. Glitter is back, with sequins as a favor- ite in total or scattered. Most evening fabrics arc airy and shiny, sometimes both, as with lurex metallic threads. Many designers slill like chif- fon. Last winter the laundresses were fine lor car-and-hnsbantl or taxi-oriented women but just aren't prncUcnl for the majority of late-day dates. Designers have bowed to the need for knee-length and Kcmi-Ionnal-s, even in some cases (lie short formats. Kasper does a tiered short navy chiffon for Joan Ixjslie, with a sheer dolman-sleeved top. Jerry Silver-man likes starkly simple late-day dresses as his IxMge matte jersey, also with, dolmans. Adele Simpson's bare-back shorl black wool jersey is topped by its own jacket, col- lared and cuffed in black fox. There's quite an interest in fin- a ccenLs, both on ,s hort dresses or companion jackets. The fur provides that extra gin PANTS KHMEMHKllKM livery fall style is found in these cocktail lengths. Nor is the practical and now classic evcning-panLs outfit forgotten. Oscar de la Kcnta combines navy velvet pants and a navy sequin shirt. Originate comes out with a threesome of black pants and black paillctted sweater and a black lopper lined in white satin. And John Anthony goes romantically el- egant with a burgundy velvet pants suit and a chiffon shirt with full see-through, cuffed sleeves. However it's with the true forma Is that fall's elegance really glitters. And glitter is the theme, But it's a lady-like glitter. "Things that shine look right says Oscar de la Kent a. This inelud es lurex, paillettes and floss embroi- deries. He adds lhat evening clothes "follow the ultra sim- ple lines of the day clothes in fabrics full of night lights as sequin shirts and cardigans and long metallic sweater lubes and matching cardigans." Sequins seem to be the most popular glitter. "It's sequins strewn on the surface of metal-lighted chiffons, sequin sheaths and slipper says Malcolm Starr of his fall collection. "The look is rich but re- mains gracefully relaxed." Slipper satin, in fact, is very popular. It has a rich- ness and beauty that fashion is re-discovering. Ann Landers THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Well, this month's budget balances Pre- cariously, but it balances." ANNUAL FALL SUPPER ST. ANDREW'S UNITED CHURCH HALL CARDSTON, ALBERTA Monday, Oct., 16th to p.m. Adults Family Children Under 12 Homes close for unwed mothers NEW YORK (AP) The rale 1 illegitimate births in the United States is on Ihe rise, yet homes for unwed mothers are clsoing their doors faster than vaudeville houses after talkies came in. And those that remain open report a dropping occu- pancy rate. New uses are being found for the facilities. But where are the girls "in trouble" going? Some authorities wovking in the field predict that in years, homes for unwed moth- ers will be extinct. The drop began almost im- perceptibly as early as 1966. The more general and notice- able decreases started in 19C8 and 1969. The reasons are obvious: In- creased availability of abor- tions, more and more wide- spread knowledge about birth- control methods, more and more girls keeping their babies and the financial crush of main- taining the homes. Some say the last two factors contribute most significantly, since the ill egitimacy rate has continued to rise. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Reverend C. Galca was assigned to ttic Guclph Correctional Centre for his summer work. During liis time there he tried to help the young lawbreakers at the institution and eventually lie developed an excellent rapport with them. He asked the boys to delve into their backgrounds lor clues jis to why they hail ended up in that institution for delinquents. Then he asked them to draw up a code for parents, using as a basis for the code specific areas where their own parents had failed. Here it is, Ann, and I hope you can fine! space for it in your column. 1. Keep cool. Don I lose your temper in the crunch. Keep Hie lid or. when things go wrong. Kills need Ihe reassurance ttiat comes from controlled responses. 2. Don't get strung out from too much booze or too many pills. When v.e see our parents reaching for those crutches we get the idea that nobody goes out there alone, that it's perfectly O.K. to go for a bottle or a capsule when things get heavy. Remember, your children are great imitators. And we lose respect for parents who tell us to one way while they are behaving another way. 3. Dug us a little. Be strict ar.d consistent in dishing out discipline. Show us who's boss. It gives us a feeling of security to know we've got some strong supports under us. 4. Don't blow your class. Keep the dignity of parenthood. Stay on that pedestal. Your children have put you there be- cause they need someone to look up to. Don't try to dress, dance or talk like your kids. You embarrass us and you look ridiculous. 5. Light a candle. Show us the way. Tell us Cod is not dead, or sleeping, or on vacation. need to believe in something bigger and stronger than ourselves. 6. Scaie the bell out of us. If you catch us lying, stealing, or being cruel, get tough. Let us know WHY what did was wrong. Impress on us the importance of not repeating such behavior. When need punishment, dish it out. But let us know you still love us, even though we have let you down. It'll make us think twice before we make the same move again. 1. Call our bluff. Make it clear lhat you mean what you say. Don't be wishy washy. Don't compromise. And don't be intimidated by our threats to drop out of school or leave home. Stand firm. If yon collapse, we will know we beat you down and we will not be happy about the "victory." Kids don't want everything they ask for. 3. Be honest with us. Tell the truth r.o matter what. And be straight-arrow about it. Lukewarm answers make us un- easy. We can smell uncertainty a mile away. This means being generous with praise. If you give us kids a few compli- ments once in a while we mil be able to accept criticism more readily. We want you to tell it like it is. From A Reader Who Loves Kids DEAR HEADER: Thank you for your generous contribu- tion to this space. The young lawbreakers who put together this guide for parents did a splendid job. And my warm regards to Reverend Galea. I can see why the kids love and respect him. Obviously he has a way of bringing out Ihe best in them.
