Manhattan Beauty Specialist Favors "Wi ndow" Bosom Gowns Predicted By ROBERT RICHARDS United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Feb. 1.—Eunice Skelly, a Manhattan beauty specialist, said today that if Hol lywood designers turn out an eve ning dress with a "window” bos om, she’s just the gal who will wear it. Miss Skelly was commenting on a United Press dispatch from Hol lywood yesterday which quoted Renie, who designs costumes for ; movie queens, as predicting that feminine clothes with complete up ! per exposure would be along next. “My dear,” Miss Skelly, a for | mer Ziegfeld Follies beauty, said. “I want you to know that I think the idea is gorgeous.” Miss Skelly said there isn’t any thing, for instance, much uglier than the average nose—yet women stick them out all over the place. Miss Skelly draws a large part of her income from putting wo men’s bosoms into shape. She thinks, since they pay $10 a visit, they might as well get their mon ey’s worth and expose her handi craft to the public’s eye. John Robert Powers, of model fame, took an entirely different view. “I think that we had better teach women how to keep their heads out of their shoulders and their shoulders out of their hips before we do anything like that,” he said. Powers contends that most Amer ican women still retain that “deb utante slouch” and that they’ll have to snap out of it if they want to make the most out of any trans parent dress. Louis Feder. a Fifth avenue hair expert who specializes in men’s toupee’s, was happy to hear about Renie’s ’prediction. “It will help my business a great deal, I think,” he said. “And how will it help your bus iness?” “Why,” Feder said, “The first week that women dress like that the shock will be terrific. Before many a man can get jpis eyes closed, he’ll have lost his hair.” Carolina Coach Company To Purchase 118 Buses RALEIGH, Feb. 1—(JP)—R- C.
