i Onited Press Staff Correspondent
Paris, <U.R) ? Wally Simpson
j has placed large orders with
I four different couture houses for
her spring wardrobe and trous
| scan. Each big dress house has
been told that she will not ac
cept the finished clothes if any
sort of publicity is released re
garding her selections.
It is known, however, that she
has ordered chiefly sports and
street clothes and that blue is
the outstanding color in the new
! wardrobe. Since she and the
Duke of Windsor undoubtedly
will continue to live in the coun
try aft?r their marriage. Mrs.
; Simpson has selected many light
! weight woolen clothes which are
; made up on simple, tailored
j lines. Part of her charm and
smartness lies in the fact that
she never is guilty of over
| dressing and is invariably clad
! in simple costumes.
Five or six new straw hats
| have been ordered from two j
. lr.rge hat houses in Paris but J
gloves, shoes and stockings have
ail been sent from England.
Mrs. Simpson has tiny feet and
a special last has been made for
her by her London bootier. As
she is not a sportswoman, she
usually wears high-heeled pumps
| trimmed with tiny leather bows.
Mrs. Simpson's taste in lin
gerie is as simple as her state in
clothes. She wears simple night
gowns which are trimmed with
embroidery, as she heartily dis
likes lace. She is fond of loung
ing pajamas, which are almost
invariably in some shade of blue.
Two shades are outstanding in
her trousseau lingeries ? tur
quoise blue and rose pink.
Mrs. Simpson has set a new
fashion in popularizing a 1 1
shades of blue for spring.

Caroline Chatfield Says
Mil 11 should lake time hv forelock ati<9 warn his mother
ami lii* intended that he experts them to he friends
for hi* sake. This policy would forestall many an
in-law tragedy. Testimony of one who tried it.
I noticed that when the subject of a man's mother and wife living
I together like a couple of spitting cats comes up that the entire blame
j for the trouble is laid at the door of the women. My own experience
leads me to believe that the attitude of the son and husband plays^ a
big part in deciding whether they live together in peace and harmony
or in constant strife. My wife died and soon after my father died,
leaving my mother entirely d; pendent upon me for support. Mother
knew that normally I would marry again, though she never put it in
so many words. She often said that no two women could be happy
under the same roof and she hoped that would never fall to her lot to
try it. When I became engaged I told her quite frankly that I couldn't
support two establishments and didn't want her to go to a boarding
house to live. Yet either site and my wife would have to live together
| pi aceably or she would have to go to a boarding house. I told my in
tended the same thing and tried to impress upon her that if she want
I ed to make me happy she could do it by making friends with mother
so we could keep her with us. As soon as we came back from our |
honeymoon mother turned over the keys to my wife, assured her that'
I she never would meddle in household aflairs but that she stood ready
j to help with advice and work, whenever she was called upon. They i
have never had a cross word. If my wife were mother's own daughter i
she couldn't love her more and vice versa. I am sure that what I said i
j before our marriage had its effect on each of them and I am inclined '
, to believe that if more sons and husbands were to approach the sub- j
ject in this way there would be fewer in-law tragedies. T. D. R.
Your are one hundred per cent right, brother; but not one man
in ten thousand will do what you did. Why? Because it is not
man's nature to precipitate a situation and because it is man's
nature to be sunnily optimistic where his women folk are con- j
corned. He always believes that mother and wife, loving him will i
love each other. He isn't one bit influenced by all he has seen and
i heard of unhappy in-law relationship between mother and daugh
| ler-in-law. Perhaps it isn't altogether strange that he should be
hopeful about his own case. His mother always has been a model
mother to him. She has proved her love and devotion in a thou
sand ways. Why should he imagine that she would not take his
wife to her heart And the girl?hasn't she assured him that she
is anxious to do everything to make him happy? She has looked
lovingly at his baby pictures taken in his mother's arms. She has
called for stories and more stories of his childhood and spoken
tenderly of the mother to whom she intends to be a real daughter, i
? All of which she has meant with her whole heart: all of which he
has believed because he has wanted to believe. So lie gets married
and as often as otherwise discovers that all those fine sentiments
implied and expressed by both women go over the dam in a flood
of jealousy of him?the adored of two females.
Hero again it is man's nature to back off and let tlie females fight it |
out. If he interferes one or the other will be offended with him. Unless ?
he is unusually courageous he \von'i step in between the.::. Indeed
after the fight over him has begun he can't bring the warring parties
to peace term.-, even if he has the hardihood to try it.
Every man taking a wife and planning to put her under the roof
with his mother would do well to have a clear understanding with I
each of them 'before the ceremony? as to what he expects of them \
regarding their relationship to one an-iihrr and to him It would i
save much bitterness and iieartaciie and obviate many a domestic

Creswell Social
P. T. A. Meeting
The Creswell Parent-Teachers
association held its regular meet
ing Thursday, April 8th, in the
school building, with a capacity
iiouse. Meeting was called to or
der by Mr... W. W. Bateman in
the chair and D. O. Hudesill at,
secretary's desk. A brief but, fitting
devotion was conducted by Mrs.
Jac kscn. During the business ses
sion . everal per incut suggestions
were made for the benefit of the
school, most important of which
was about restoring spelling to the
high school course. Principal Ad
derholdt frankly admitted the
need of such a course but seemed
to doubt the advisability ol put
ting it in this la e in the . chool |
year. But if the voice of the par- i
cuts is to have any weight with
the school men of the s ate it will I
be put in soon. Any system that
turns out a ciass of high school
graduates who cannot . pel] cor
rectly the words of th ;ir small
vocabularies has a weakness that
needs doctoring.
M'ss Usurla Ba'.eman, Plymouth,
was present and made a plea to
the chap er to help finance a cork
leg for one of the Cre well stu
dents. This worthy appeal was fa
vorably referred to the ex -cutive
committee for final disposition (
and it is sure to receive worthy 1
consideration. At this point the
president recognized Mrs. Mag
nolia Hopkins, chairman of pro
giarn committee, who had pre
pared a real treat for the evening.
The evening closed with a poll
ing bee by some of the high school
boys and girls. Miss Elizabeth Peal
came out as die lone wolf with a
nice box of candy as a prize. The
P. T. A. has been working well for
the school year but has not seem
ed to care much about telling oth
er of its noble deeds. But it is on
the job just the same.
