RADIO STARS tells the story. Patsy Dow is only four years old. Little Orphan Annie (Shir- ley Bell) is only twelve but she is al- ready a leading Chicago radio actress. Donald Hughes, who appears in Helen and Mary, played in a broadcast I liked almost as well as any ever on the air. Do you remember the program? It was called "Daddy and Rollo." "Many people have asked me if the professional jealousy that exists among adult entertainers exists with the chil- dren or if it is happily eradicated. It certainly exists between the proud mammas who bring the little wage-earn- ers to the studios. Between the chil- dren? Well—it is not nearly as bad as it gets some years later but some- times—oh well, I can best describe it by the fact that thirteen-year-old Jimmy McCallion said to me the other day, about radio children, "We're just like one big happy family," with which he nudged me and winked! Marilou's Spring Wardrobe (Continued from page 37) jacket over a tailored blouse? And that's just a slight idea of the clever way Marilou makes her clothes do double duty. "I've found out that it isn't how much you spend, but how you spend it, that really matters," she explained to me. "Accessories make or break a costume. I always choose an 'accessory color' and make that the foundation for all my clothes of that season. This spring it's brown—not the ordinary brown, but the new warm brown that has a purplish tinge. That doesn't mean that I wear only brown clothes. Far from it. But I do choose clothes that will go with it. For instance, I can wear green, beige, pink, yellow, rose and white, just to mention a few. This, of course, is be- sides black. I believe black accessories are always necessary to have on hand, particularly for dress-up occasions." Here's a clever example that illus- trates Marilou's point. Her spring coat (see page 41) bears out the newest de- tails. It's a dull, soft apricot color and it's made of a lightweight woolen fab- ric. Notice the sleeves. It's a change from those huge shoulder puffs we've worn all winter that give a girl that too top-heavy look. This one has smart tuckings at the shoulder and the full- ness falls just about the elbows. It has the high, collarless neck, and this is where Marilou uses her ingenuity. "For general street wear I prefer it simple and collarless. But I often vary it by wearing a silver fox scarf with black hat, gloves, bag and shoes. And then I sometimes wear a brown galyak tie scarf with brown accessories, which makes it look like something else again." DEMEMBER, the smartest spring coats are collarless, with detachable fur collars or scarfs. The little square sailor with trig, tailored lines that is tipped jauntily on Marilou's head is one of those lovable styles that still remain with us. Prints we have as soon as the first robin chirps, and they're better than ever this year. Stripes are giving floral prints a close run for popularity. The one that Marilou is wearing (on page 41) is a navy and white novelty weave, that employs the stripes in an advan- tageous manner to form the slim bias skirt. Tiny cap sleeves, the loose, knotted bow at the neck, and the navy suede belt are chic details that mustn't be overlooked. There's a closeup of the navy straw fabric cap that Marilou wears with this frock on page 41 also. Don't you just love the tricky openwork that allows the hair to peep out? I know there's an old voodoo about stripes. So many girls think it makes them look stout or shapeless. Well, if it's a very narrow stripe like the brown and white jersey that Marilou wears on page 40 and has the same sporty look, you needn't worry about it adding pounds. The tie collar, the bone buckle, the unusual way the pockets are set in, and above all, the novel treatment of the stripes, are its most distinguishing details. There's always a "pet" dress in every girl's wardrobe. Marilou's is a white corded wool which is one of the materials that finds a favored place in the spring and summer sun. The tie around the waist, and the cuffs on the three-quarter length sleeves are a novelty knit of green, black and white. With it she wears a shallow green cloche, turned up at the back and trimmed with a green grosgrain band. For later in the season, Marilou has a pair of those extremely cut-out san- dals. They might seem a little daring to you, but they're newer than to- morrow's mail. Just a few straps in- tertwined, and presto! you've the smart- est shoe of the season. You must have a very firm, high arch to wear this type of sandal, but sandals are very definite- ly in. No spring wardrobe is complete with- out a coat dress. Young Miss Dix chooses one of a soft, dusty pink that reveals, when the rever is open, an in- set of a striking brown and pink plaid design. (See page 40.) The dress slips on and buttons around like a coat. Necklines are still high, but they're softened by arrangements such as this bow around the neck. In a coat frock, particularly, are accessories important, and Marilou wears a brown grosgrain toque, and brown shoes, gloves and bag. Marilou's pet dinner dress received its inspiration from the prim Gibson Girl. It has a light top and dark skirt —"shirtwaist" style it's called. The bodice is white sheer crepe embroid- ered with gold threads, and the dull black crepe skirt interrupts it was a high, flattering molded line. A cerise and black sash ties around the waist.
