I # % I MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1955 Smoking Manners Outlined By Eleni How are your smoking man ners? We don’t predict you’ll go up in smoke if you don’t measure up to the “cigaretti quette” standards outlined by one leading cigarette company. Your score will show you up though if you do more of the don’ts than the do's they use in determining social success. We're adding a few of our own observations, too. DO’S. 1. Be feminine in smoking. Every woman should study her “cigarettiquette” in the mirror while smoking and curb any masculine gestures, such as heavy inhaling or ex haling. (If a large mirror isn’t handy pull out a com pact.) 2. Remove the cigarette from your mouth while talking. <Most women can’t be under stood when they’re talking, anyhow, so maybe this will help.) 3. Keep you face at its pret tiest. Contortions distract from your most beautiful fea tures. (When the smoke has gone down the wrong pipe, keep smiling if it chokes you.) 4. Carry your own cigar ettes and try to keep them in r convenient place. .(This means on you. Not at home which is convenient only when you are there.) 5. Observe all “No Smoking’’ signs. They’re for your pro tection. (Who’s protecting whom?) 6. Light your own cigarette if it will cause inconvenience to the gentleman nearest you to light it. (What if you don't know him?) And now for the DON’TS. 1. Don’t be affected. This includes tossing your head back in an exaggerated man ner, or pursing your lips. (No comment). 2. Don’t let your cigarette droop from the corner of your mouth. (The gangster-type girl has never been a big hit in this country.) 3. Be careful not to blow smoke in your companion’s face. (They're liable to blow it right back.) 4. Don't ever smoke your cigarette down to a stub.

Never put ashes on the floor. There are more efficient ways of discouraging moths. (And guests.) 6. Do not squash your cigarette out in food, drinks, saucers, plates, plants, or any where except in an ashtray. f You may want to finish eat ing or drinking.) 7. Never rest lighted cigar ettes on furniture. Even if you have plenty of Are insur ance, it’s still bad manners. (We lose more furniture that way. and aren’t those insur ance companies nasty about smokers!) What’s your score? * NO OSCAR FOR THlS —Extreme poses are sometimes good for photography but not when you are relaxing and enjoying a cigarette. Shown in Rome ly Hi* North Amorkar Nowipopor Allionco ROME, Feb. 21.—Obscured behind the silk and satin, tweed and of the Euro pean spring fashion shows for women, a style industry for men complete with famous designers and ever-changing patterns has been developing in Italyi Just as in the women’s de partment, moreover, the new male styles have been un veiled by tailors with abun dant faith in novel and deco rative creations. The displays of new male fashions are not at all frivo lous on this peninsula where men are enthusiastically style conscious. Just as when Christian Dior springs a new line on his feminine public, so a great deal of fantasy and fatigue attends the dis closure of a stylist’s new plans for attiring Italian men. Famous Houses Famous houses in the men’s wear field here include such i.ames as Santocorno, Lizzola, Baratta and Trecanni. Spokes men of all agree on the con viction that men should dress smartly—even superbly—and that such splendor requires pioneering. At the Baratta house, the stylists showed one of the newest offerings —a short tweed overcoat with vents, three flap pockets and an opossum collar. Drabness is condemned. The full lining is red and white plaid. Trecanni’s piece de resist ance is a waistcoat with nar row lapels, flap pockets and fancy buttons. Giving a full blooded fling to a waistcoat is a specialty of several of the men’s-wear sylists. New on the market are waistcoats showing red, white and green coats of arms on a yellow background. Ski vests are fitted with brass buttons and knitted wool backs in the same color as fire hydrant red fronts. Black and white plaid vests ara trimmed with velvet piping. By the stylists’ consensus, men's jackets are an inch or so longer, and with less shoulder padding this year. Smart lounge suits are being equipped with vents which provide away to put your hands in your pockets without creasing the jacket. Waists are a little lower, but costs, sev eral stylists admitted, are a little higher for 1955. Washington Birthday Ball Slated A re-enactment of George Washington’s last celebration of his birthday will take place in Gadsby’s Tavern tomorrow nignt, climaxing Alexandria's Heritage Week. In February, 1799, George Washington wrote in his diary: “Went up to Alexandria to the celebration of my birth day. Many maneuvers were performed by the uniform corps, and an elegant ball and supper at night.” The scene was Gadsby’s Tavern at Royal and Cameron streets where for 12 years the General’s fellow citizens had been honoring him with an annual birthday ball.

To Re-enact Scene The re-enactment of the final celebration 156 years ago will come to life again this year when Gen. and Mrs. Washington, impersonated by Capt. Albert Toney, USN, and Mrs. B. B. Comer Lile, will head a receiving line to greet guests in Eighteenth Century dress. Among patrons for the event are: Army Chief of Staff and Mrs. Matthew B. Ridgway. Ma.i Gen. and Mrs. John B. Ackerman. Maj. Gen. and Mrs. James L. Collins, Maj. Gen. D and Mrs. James M. Gavin, Rear Admiral and Mrs. Charles R. Brown. Representative Joel Brovhill and a score of prom inent Alexandrians, many of them descendants of thd* very guests who danced at the ball in 1799. Special Events Planned Several special events have been arranged by Mrs. J. E. Brickert, chairman of the Pag eant Committee, to take place in the Tavern’s famous ball room with its quaint musi cians' gallery. There, to the music of a string trio, Mrs. Brickert's trained group of eight youthful dancers will perform the minuet and other Eighteenth Century dances.
