Vivian Whitfield as guest speaker. Mr. Whitfield’s wide range of interests as uni versity instructor and later as representative of the United States givernment in Latin America, and now president of the Pender Coun ty Farm Bureau, and new mem ber of the state legislature afford a treasury of ideas and ideals. His lecture was in truth a vig orous argument that “Man is Mas ter of His Fate,” and by educa tion properly applied, determines whether he shall be enslaved or free. The entire program was an ex pression of the club’s good-will towards Wilmington’s splendid, talented citizens of foreign birth. Representatives were presented and received warm response from all present. Mrs. E. W.

Fashions By Balenciaga Show Spanish Influence PARIS, Oct. 20 — Styles from this fashion capital show a definite Spanish influence, for a very special reason. Balenciaga, said to be the creator with the greatest influence on fashions throughout the occupation, has been stranded in Spain since the frontiers were closed. Spanish inspiration is especially stressed in the large number of bo lero effects reminiscent of the bull fighters’ dress, and ‘Infanta” dresses are popular. Balenciaga is responsible, too, for the stressing of wasp waists and definitely rounded hips, a distinct departure the streamlined silhouette which had been current until outbreak of the war. Balenciaga features longer skirts. Suits show supple jackets cut on easy-fitted mannish lines, but with nipped-in waistline and slender skirts. Pickets appeared on most models, both formal and informal, coats, dresses and many redingotes featuring three pockets strung across the front. A notice able feature of the Balenciago collection wa sthe number of red ingotes in plain corduray velvet, the latter used horizontally, worn over dresses of matching or con trasting colored wool and silk crepes. Most popular colors were navy, black, chestnut brown, copper, and many pastel blues. Other de tails highlighted were detachable boleros, gilets, capelets and fring ed, draped fichus in pastel velvets or satins. Sequin embroidery of the same color as the dress or in neon light effects was especially stressed for formal afternoon frocks, usually following the short bolero theme or again forming deep, rounded yokes with a touch of embroidery on the cuffs. Sou tache and passementerie trim ing was also used on afternoon coats stressing definietly the round ed shoulder line All coats showed fullness massed at the back and caught in by a half-belt, buttoning high at the throat with six to seven double rows of buttons. ULTRA-FULL SKIRTS Dinner dresses included a model with a slender black velvet skirt and black silk top entirely em broidered in black sequins, while another showed gold and silver embroidery reminiscent of Christ mas tree decorations forming bo lero and cuffs. Hostess dresses favored ultra-full flowing skirts with almost tailored tops. One es pecially striking model of onary yellow velvet was worn over a white satin gown finished with an enormous double jabot neckline. Another was fashioned of scar let velvet lined with black moire. A striking evening gown of Goya inspiration was made of ecru lace wth tight decollete bodice of emerald green velvet with a man tillaof velvet edged with lace. The show ended with a spec tacular bridal dress of white ben galine with the same full skirt and fitted wristlength jacket, while the bridesmaid’s dress of white satin was distinctly 1880 style with off the-shoulder neckline and skirt hem edged with volants. Balenci aga’s hats were evocative of the styles of the last war with much ostrich feather ♦rimming. The mannequins were all up swept coiffed with curls forming a coronet effect, also of Spanish inspiration. by Alice Brooks This collection of motifs—quick, colorful stitchery—just the thing to make plain linens smart—helps reduce that Christmas list.
