a French flavor hitherto beyond

of Dominique, Parisaa couture

American methods of production.

Mr. Ben Rothchild, coordinator
for the American manufacturers
who are making the replicas of
these fashions, believes with M.
Mola in the necessity of simplicity
of line in children's clothes with,
room for freedom of action and
careful adaptation of the mode of

young. The good taste and common

she said they tasted more like kip

Miss Bacall, who is doing more
than look in movies these days,
was doing her first cry-scene un
der the tutelage of her husband,
Humphrey Bogart. for Warners'
"Key Largo".
"This is really the new Bacall,"
sniffed the new Bacall as she wip

time before (he cameras giving
nut down-under looks."
But there'll be no more looks
from now on.
"I want to be an actress, not a

"That was just a trick," Bogart
agreed. "You can't build a whole
career on it."

Bogart and Miss Bacall are plan

yacht when the picture is over
since under Bogart 's new contract
he's committed to only one Die-

frequently argued with the studio

"But they find out they can't
get on alone," Bogart chuckled.
After all, who'd go see a movie

Token Taken
From The Men
A new fabric is making its ap
pearance in women's and children's
suits and dresses this spring. It's
a crisp, smooth fabric that the
men have raved about in their
sports shirts for several years past.
This fabric made of 80 Avisco
spun rayon and 20',o wool has
several unusual features.
By a skillful and unique method
of blending, the suppleness of spun
rayon and the resilience of wool
are combined to make a fabric that
has beauty of texture and a recep
tiveness to tailoring and fine
needlework. And. due to ati en
tirely new natural finishing tech
nique, the fabric is washable. It is
guaranteed not to shrink over V.i
and the color should not change
noticeably through many trips to
the washtuh!

soft enough for eating, it will soon
