* We, the Women
A New York hat designer has
created a special board of judges
to pass on the headgear he de
signs for women to wear. The
board is made up of husbands. If
they hoot at a hat, it isn’t manu
factured—and a lot of other hus
bands are indirectly benefited.
Now there’s a reai step forward
in feminine fashions. Had a board
of judges made up of husbands
viewed ail the fashions of the past
few years, probably a lot of them
would never have reaches Main
And Main Street would have
looked better for not having been
cluttered up with pretty girls look
ing grotesque in blue jeans, wom
en who sack their lovely hair in
snoods. And husbands might have
labeled a lot of costume jewelry
as pure “junk.”
And that unbecoming cross be
tween slacks and shorts—the ped
al pusher—would probably never
have come out of the nightmare
world to see the light of day.
Women would never have been
tempted to twist their hair into
variations of jungle hairdoes, if
men had been allowed to veto the
up-swept hair style before it swept
the country.
So long as men don’t get a gan
der at a new fashion until their
wives and daughters -have already
bought it, their hoots don’t carry
much weight.
Their only chance is to get a
look at them before the women
are told, “This is the very latest
America’s telephone industry
reports that there are 31,170,000
telephones to 140,000,000 persons
in the United States.
