The Hetald Bulky styles for fall and winter coats By MARGARET NESS NEW YORK (CP) Bulky styles are back in fall and winter coats but there are plenty of alternatives You can find slim, classic trench and clutch types. The bulky coat isn't as bulky as it sounds.- Generally it is loosely belted, not the huge tent silhouette of the 1950s. The length is mid-calf. And high leather boots have returned to complement the longer skirts. The bulk is supplied by flare-skirt yardage or bias cut rather than by the materials. John Anthony, for ex- ample, has cut nearly all his coats and capes on the bias. The wrap coat also adds a suggestion of bulk and wraps were prominent at the American Designer Showings for the fashion press. Anthony showed ar oatmeal Donetal tweed wrap with bulky top, generous armholes and fox cuffs. Most designers included a lot of fur trim. Geoffrej Beene used sable or fox cuffs on is big coats with rippl ed fulness falling from a yoke. At the Montreal Mode showing, designer Leo Chevrier of Montroy Coats used Russian racoon for deep cuffs on a camel-colored cashmere shirt coat and an enormous self-tie tent coat of black cashmere-and-wool. The steamer coat, originally a big wrap coat worn by transatlantic travellers for promenades on deck, is back, usually with slathers of fur. A few designers carried the wrap to voluminous extremes so that tht wearer seemed to be clutching yards of fabric. The big coat was popular at the Montreal Mode Morty Garelick for Par Morty liked a tent shape, the tuliness falling from the shoulders to frdht and back 01 the back only. Auckie Sanft's fuller coats were designed with different sleeve and pocket treatment to create a balanced silhoutte. Dolman sleeves teamed with welt pockets and set-in sleeves with patch or flap pockets. However, designers in both New York and Canada could not afford to place all their fashion faith on just one style and one length. So in every collection old favorites appeared, like the short car or pant coat. Rodrigues showed a three-quarter-length, grey flannel style with matching skirt. Marielle Fleury, designer for Sport Togs of Montreal, included a French navy shaped pant coat. The knitted look that came in last year is still with us. A number of knit coats were in bulky yards, often with fur collar or cuffs. Adele Simpson featured an ox- ford grey. longer length, rib-knitted and rapped style with fox collar and cuffs. There are also a lot of mohair fleece and wool-and- mohair coats and double-faced fabrics remain popular. Geoffrey Beene showed an open-front style in aubergine-and-wheat. worn with a long alpaca muffler in matching tones. Capes fit the shoulders and hang comfortable. Most of their bulk is in yardage for many are unlined and can b? -.vom over suits. Oscar de la Renta likes trenchy or Inverness with extra shoulder cape styles. Sanft had a black cashmere coat-cape with sable shawl collar. Some capes are reversible, as Rasper's apricol-and- rust Donegal tweed to rust cotton poplin. This could double as a fall raincoat, poplin side out. Raincoats are becoming more popular every year for fall. Anthony lined one luxuriously with nutria and edged the open front with lynx. Hie Wacs reverses lodcn to beige poplin in a wrap style and adds a patterned light green scarf and beret. Leo Chevalict reversed both a coal and a cape from beige poplin tc Donegal tweed. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes Times of plenty Although the coming of fall is met with sighs from people who worship summer, robins in Lethbridge are having a field day and veritable feast on fallen crab apples, like this one who was caught enjoying lunch. Ann Landers Today I saw it for the first time. As a delegate of the American Medical Association, I witnessed an operation performed under acupuncture. It was a thyroidectomy. The patient was a woman, age 34. She had one needle between each thumb and index finger, and one in each wrist, all connected to an electric stimulator. The operating room was not air-conditioned and the patient was perspiring profusely. A nurse periodical- ly mopped the patient's face with a damp cloth. Although I was dressed in surgical garb and mask, they allowed me to carry a fan the same one 1 had used the previous day when we visited a pigsty in a commune. I was standing less than a foot from the patient's head and proceeded to fan her. She gave me a pleasant smile and said in Chinese. "Thank you very much." I asked her if she felt any pain. She replied, "No. just a little numb." Dr. Claude Welch, the dis- tinguished surgeon from Mass. General in Boston, and President of the American College of Surgeons, said the goiter was very large and the surgical team was doing a fine job. We witnessed another acupuncture operation, however, which did not go so well. The patient was having part of her lung removed. Dr. Pepper Jenkins, of Parkland Hospital in Dallas and former President of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, stood at the elbow of the doc- tor in charge of monitoring the equipment. Midway through the operation it became apparent that the patient was in serious trouble. Dr. Jenkins immediately became part of the team. He helped administer the oxygen and the patient was given an injection of Demerol. We checked later that day and learned that she had "made it" but it was a very close call. Much has been written about acupuncture as the new- miracle anesthesia. The members of our delegation agreed unanimously that it has merit in selected cases, they believe acupuncture is more of an analgesic (pain reducer) than an anesthetic, and it is not likely to become widely used in Western sur- gery. As. Dr. Michael DeBakey pointed out when he visited The People's Republic several months ago, only about one- third of the surgical patients are suitable candidates. They must be stoic in nature, have a suggestible bent of mind (in the same sense that some peo- ple are not suitable subjects for hypnosis) and they must be in reasonably good physical condition. It should be remembered that acupuncture has been used as a "cure" in China for centuries, but as an anesthetic it has been in use only since 1958. Moreover, it was virtual- ly discontinued in 1960 when Liu Shao-Ch'i and other counter-revisionists deemed it "unscientific and of no prac- tical value." In 1966. Mao ordered the technique revived and used in all hospitals and rural areas. The Chinese physicians with whom we spoke made no ex- travagant claims. They told us they use acupuncture for sur- gery in only about 15 per cent of their major operations. "How does it happen that you have six going on this mor- asked Dr. John Cowan, former Navy Admiral, now A.M.A.'s Director of Inter- national Medicine. "Because you American doctors are visiting us." was the frank reply. The only time we felt the Chinese were trying to sell us a bill of goods was in the cur- ing of congenital deafness with acupuncture- We visited a school for deaf children and they were adorable. The electrical gadgets and Rube Goldberg paraphernalia, however, were labeled "pure hokum" by our delegation. Dr. Jay Arena, a world- famous pediatrician from Duke University, said, "There is a possibility that a child whose hearing has been damaged might be helped somewhat by nerve stimulation, but to date, there is no way that a child born deaf can be made to hear with acupuncture treatments or anything else."
