f STAR | | DUST | * IMovie • Radio J ★ * ★★★By VIRGINIA VALE★★★ IT IS children’s day in Holly wood, with contracts being signed in carload lots to exploit youngsters in films. The five tough young lads whom Sam Goldwyn imported to play in “Dead End” made such a hit at the preview that he prompt ly put all of them under con tract to make more pictures. Their next for him will be “Street Corners” after which Mervyn Le Roy would like to borrow them for a series. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s fa vorite is fourteen-year-old Judy Garland. They have lined up three stories for her. Universal intends to keep Deanna Durbin very busy for the next year, and Paramount plan to star the youngest of all, four-year-old Kitty Clancy, in “Call Back Love.” Rubinoff does not like to expose his priceless Stradivarius violin to brilliant studio lhan * s necessary, H so during rehearsals |poß| and whenever he Hrap 8 was not P la y> n g f° r tra °k °* husky virtuoso car ries a big insurance policy on the violin Rubinoff and would feel lost if anything hap pened to it.

When Frances Farmer arrived in New York, instead of pausing po litely to let all the news photogra phers take pictures of her, she rushed off to Mount Kisco upstate to go in rehearsal for her first stage engagement. Four nights later I saw her performance and sudden ly found myself wanting to burst into cheers. Playing a role quite unlike any she has done on the screen, a role simply made to or der for Lupe Velez, she displayed a cat-like grace of movement, a voice musically rich, and great variety of moods. Ozzie Nelson and his popular radio orchestra are currently ap pearing at the Astor roof in New York, but soon he will move his activities to Hollywood so as to be near his wife, Harriet Hilliard, who is under long-term contract at the RKO studios. Ozzie is the hero of all boy scouts who want to make a name for themselves. At fourteen he was honored at a jamboree in London as the youngest Eagle scout. —-k Youngsters who were the original fans of “The Lone Ranger” are getting pretty grown up now, hut they confess that they still follow the adventures with bated breath.

Smart Coats for Now and Early Fall By CHERIE NICHOLAS , j, 1 ■ HP- faßmp - OW is the time of year when a midseason coat becomes a wardrobe requisite. Much is de manded of this coat. It not only has to round out the summer season with a perfect touch but it is ex pected to usher in the new fall sea son with a proper style flourish. Then, too, it must be not too heavy weight for immediate wear and not too lightweight for autumn com fort. It is with cunning awareness of all these “musts” and “must nots” of a midseason coat that versatile designers fell into step, cutting ca pricious capers with tempting tweeds and featherweight fleeces, also with soft lightweight woolens. White and pastel wool coats, al ways important dots on the summer landscape, are especially good style this year being as popular for wear in town as in the country. The wide variety of weaves and patterns in these lightweight monotone wools has added much to the style interest in these casually correct coats. The white, buttonless, three - quarter length full swinging swagger coat centered in the illustration is the sort you treasure, for, accompanied by a matching skirt, it makes a most practical and stunning cos tume to wear when weather is fair, be it a midseason or a warmish autumn day. To add to its prac ticality this coat may be worn over summer dresses and the skirt may double with delightful contrast ing lightsome wool sweaters. A week-end vacation calls for one of the soft, well-tailored wool tweed swagger coats of three - quarter length. Casual and comfortable it must be. It should be styled with GOING HIGH-HAT By CHERIE NICHOLAS % V Watch crowns! The advance fall hat fashions declare that height is the chief aim of designers. The three types that lead the millinery procession for midseason and early fall are berets, toques or turbans and the hat with a brim that takes an abrupt turn up at one side re vealing half of the coiffure. There is no doubt that millinery fashions are tending toward the extreme, and they are also very versatile. The three silhouettes pictured con vey an idea as to important mil linery gestures. The high draped toque at the top is significant of the future. The beret of velvet is featuring as a smart midseason number, and women who lead in fashion are wearing them with their summer frocks at this time. The dashing high-side-brim hat is some thing to look forward to since mil liners are featuring it in various moods often with rather spectacular feather trims. MIDLAND JOURNAL, RISING SUN, MD. deep, roomy pockets and broad lapels, hang straight in front and have a full swing-into-folds backline. Checks, stripes and monotones are the gay themes that sing to riotous color tunes. Consciously fashioned for nonchalance, these wool tweeds are indifferent to the hard knocks of traveling and they never know the meaning of wear and tear. The model shown to the left tallies with this description of what a casual, practical travel coat should be. The tweed so expertly tailored with wide rounded lapels, deep patch pockets and wide turnback cuffs in this in stance is in brown, rust and white check. It is worn over a beige featherweight knit wool frock with brown hand-knit scarf. Lustrous fleeces are very good this season, especially in the polo coat style. No camping jaunt, motor trip or ocean voyage is com plete without one of these sturdy old reliables in either white or natural shade. Cut just like those made for the men-folk with deep slash pockets, tab cuffs and vent back, a coat of this type should be included in the wardrobe of every woman who expects to run into damp winds or who will spend any time in a “don’t dress for dinner’’ region. The double-breasted polo coat pictured to the right is a classic. Of light weight wool fleece, it is styled with raglan shoulders, vent back, tab cuffs, stitched slash pockets, wide notched revers and wide self belt. © Western Newspaper Union. FEATURE VEILS IN MODELS FOR AUTUMN Veils which not only cover an en tire hat but the face and the shoul ders are the most striking feature of many advance fall models. The large mesh veil which is dot ted with chenille is the favored type for wear during the daytime, but there are some handsome lace veils to wear for more formal occasions. Most of these veils are circular in shape and are thrown over the high peaked crowns of the new hats so that their draped edges extend well over the shoulders. Sometimes they are placed over the head before the hat is put on so that the part which covers the crown of the head serves as a crown for the hat. Another type of veil, also circular in shape, has the center cut out so that the veil fits around a crown or edges the brim of a hat. It usually is worn to give a downward sweep at the back, frequently extending halfway to the waistline. Uneven Skirt Line Latest Style in Evening Gowns A Paris fashion house shows a practical evening gown with a short skirt in front and a definite back ward dip to a greater length. These full skirts resemble the tarleton skirts worn by ballet dancers. The material is gathered into so many folds that the skirts swing out grace fully in wide sweeps with every movement of the body. These short skirts are far more : practical than floor-length ones, which are likely to get trampled underfoot when dancing, and their width and fullness make them graceful as well as practical. Matching Hats and Heels Are Popular for Sportswear Matching Headdresses and heels are providing a gala touch to sim ple summer outfits worn by attrac tive young spectators at smart Mid-, western country clubs. Dusty pink frocks combined with beige turbans and ostrich skin pumps with beige colored built-up heels are a popu lar combination. On many of the smartest white ensembles, effective accents are furnished by paisley print headbapds and heels. GOOD TASTE £ TODAY % Temilypost/f World'! Foremoit Authority on Etiquette © Emily Post. Shaking Hands Is Matter of Impulse r\ EAR Mrs. Post: Should a worn- an, when taking leave of a small family group, several of whtrni she met on this occasion for the first time, shake hands with ev eryone? And would the fact that she shook hands with each one an hour or so before when meeting them have any bearing on your an swer? While 1 know that shaking hands is not so much practiced to day as it once was, I wish I knew at what times it was still the polite thing to do. Answer: The question of whether to shake hands under the circum stances you mentioned is far more a matter of impulse than of rule. If those whom you have been talk ing with are standing directly next to you, your qatural impulse would be to shake hands. But if they are sitting in different parts of the room you would certainly not go from one to the other. Again, if one of them goes with you as far as the door, you would probably shake hands with her, or him, as you say good by. • • • Let Members Pour at Women s Club Tea r\ EAR Mrs. Post: Our women’s club is giving a large tea for approximately a hundred and fifty guests. Would you suggest that it is better at a tea of this size to let the hotel do all the serving, or do you think it more friendly to have members of the committee preside at the tea table? Answer: At a tea for as many as fifty the details of serving are more often than not taken care of by the caterers, or by the servants in a private house. However, in your case, if sufficient members of the committee take turns at pouring, it should not be too tiring for any one of them, and there is no question that club hostesses at the tea ta ble would create a more friendly atmosphere. In any case, all the other details of replacing used cups and saucers with fresh ones and re plenishing sandwiches and cakes and passing them will be taken care of by the hotel. • • • Serving Young Guests. r> EAR Mrs. Post: I would like to 1 r give an evening surprise birth day party for my son, asking a dozen or so of his high school friends. Everything is to be sim ple and the evening will probably be spent in playing a variety of games, as our house does not af ford space for dancing. For re freshments, would chicken sand wiches and milk be sufficient? I know all the young people drink milk and hardly any of them drink coffee, and I thought milk would be very easy to serve. Or can you sug gest something that you like bet ter? Answer: If you are sure they like milk better than anything else, this is an excellent reason for serving it. Otherwise, I think I would sug gest that you have cocoa for a change, and also because a hot drink would taste better with cold sandwiches. • • * Break Away Gently. P\ EAR Mrs. Post: When I first began working in this office several of the girls invited me to go to lunch with them and tried to make things pleasant for me. But now I don’t seem to be able to get away from them ever and I find that their interests are not mine. I would rather not lunch with them but seem to be getting deeper into the habit. What can you suggest for me to do? Answer: Since ybu can not very well tell them you do not want to sit with them, the only thing I can think of to suggest is that you make other engagements for yourself at noon, at first occasionally and later on habitually. • • * Ribbons and Seats. F\ EAR Mrs. Post: What is meant by “in front of the ribbons’’ and “within the ribbons’’ and who is seated in each place? Answer: Both mean the same thing; having a place within the en closure marked by the ribbons. The pews in front of the ribbons are always seated according to near ness of relationship, and cards bear ing the actual pew numbers are sent by the mother of the groom to each of those relatives and a few dearest friends who are to be seated on the groom’s side of the church, and by the mother of the bride to each of those who are to be seated on the bride’s side of the church. * * * Fine Technical Point. n EAR Mrs. Post: Which is cor -1 rect? Drink your soup or eat your soup? Answer: Eat your soup with a spoon and drink it from a cup. In other words, you eat it with a table spoon when served in a plate; you sip it from a teaspoon or drink it, when served in a cup. WNU Service.
