Harassed Husbands Organize j
For Short Skirts, Lower Costs
(this article is rewritten from a
story printed in the Portland
“Sun” on November 9, 1947)
More troops are rapidly joining
the battle of the hemline as irate
boyfriends and harassed husbands
flock to the ranks of “MOWS,”
(Men’s Organization to War on
Styles) in an attempt to keep the
skirtline from dropping even lower.
The MOWS movement was start
ed in Portland by gentleman whose
name is listed as Mr. Mows on or
ganization stationery. According
to Mows the attempt to hold the
hemline is a serious matter with
which nations as well as individ
uals must deal.
Government Ruling
He pointed out that the British
labor government officially ruled
that the clothing industry must
comply with shorter skirt lengths
in an effort to conserve material
and bring down living- costs. Mows
further emphasized that the CIO
has tabbed the “new look” as “a
conspiracy aimed at the people.”
According to Mows, the most ef
fective method of discouraging the
long skirt is for popular athletes
and male students to cut dates or
voice emphatic disapproval of girls
who wear long dresses.

ganization to War on Styles with
over a thousand members. In
Georgia there is a League of Broke
Husbands whose slogan is “Keep
dresses shorter so they may be
worn longex-.”
Smart Girls
The Portland organization.which
now claims 6000 members, echoes
the attitude of various publica
tions and prominent people who
have stated that, “If a girl has
good legs and she is smart she will
not cover them up.”
Mr. Mows closed his remarks on
current styles by saying that
American women have fought long
to emancipate themselves from
slavery, discrimination, and other
bondages arxa that they will not
forske their freedom for fashion.
