Readers' Clearing House, E-2 Dear Abby, E-15 WEDNESDAY Raleigh Haberdasher, “Des tination South and Spring” luncheon fashion showing for the Columbia Country Club members and guests. FASHION NOTEBOOK By ELENI Carwatching Is Spectator Sport That's Fashionable Though carwatching hasn’t become a national spectator sport it certainly is boom ing. Sportscar devotees < they include drivers, watchers and just plain people inter ested in sports cars and rac ing) are meeting in Wash ington Wednesday through Sunday. The Sports Car Club of America expects some 2,000 registrations for the numerous events being planned. As one of the convention events scheduled. Julius Gar finckel & Co. will stage “Tips on the Races,” a' fashion showing of what to wear when following them at Le Mans, Deauville, Sebring, Nassau, Marlboro or Lime Rock. The show will be on Friday at luncheon time in the Sheraton Hall at the Sheraton-Park. Expert knowledge in the fashion selection is assured, since Eve Lloyd, who is deb utante sportswear buyer for the store, is also a sports car fan. Married to Joseph Scherschel. a Life magazine photographer, Eve says she's even succeeded in making him a sports car enthusiast. Although few women race sports cars, they find it a fascinating sport because their beaux, husbands and friends are a part of the ex citing world. Sarah Thompson, whose husband, Richard Thompson, has racked up sports car class championships galore throughout the world, offers some fashion pointers along with Eve Lloyd. Mrs. Thomp son is chairman of the fash ion show event. Most girl carwatchers ap preciate the fact that it Is an outdoor sport and leave the false eyelashes at home. Us ing color with discretion is considered important, John Weitz, talented free-' lance designer, is a sports E car fan ai!d lays claim to "having lost four sports car championship races.” His suggestion is that women participating in observing the sport, be respectful of it. “It depends on where you are watching the races,” he points out. “You can forget all the nonsense about looking chic, just look warm when you have to, and cool if needed, but at all times be comfort able.” Dress as you would if you were watching a golf tournament. . Most carwatchers prefer to wear sky and sea colors in their outfits. In the ease of Sarah Thompson, she wears pants that have some kind of pattern rather than a solid color. “The pits are ,dirty places wiV.i grease and grime and there’s rubber dust con stantly around the asphalt,” she says. If, however, you follow the races in Europe or in South America, DON’T be caught wearing trousers. They’re ver boten. A casual suit, a linen sheath with a sweater, or a good looking shirtwaist dress makes the grade instead. Short shorts are ruled out everywhere. Shoes says Eve Lloyd, “are definitely flats since you are standing most of the time.” Eve's current favorite out fit (from her sportswear de partment, of course) is a cable knit sea-blue green mo hair sweater with the V neck line filled in with a turquoise chiffon scarf, and slacks in turquoise and green striped wool. Right now “hip rider” pants, those Westernized low slung jobs, are getting a ride from the girl carwatchers. A word of caution from Eve Lloyd is, “if you have en ormous hips forget them.” Jazzy or "kookie" dressing doesn’t mark the woman of taste anyplace, and least of all in the sportscar set.
