First Lady's Inaugural Hat
Has International Flavor
By Hal Boyle
NEW YORK—(AP) — Women’s
hats don’t just happen. They are
made to happen.
And there is quite a story behind
the first hat of the land today—the
hat that America’s first lady will
wear in Washington after husband
Harry’s swearing-in ceremony.
Bess Truman’s inaugural recep
tion hat proves we do live in one
world. It is a kind of United Na
tions hat—welding together the ar
tistic talents of arid Africa, Italy,
France and Hungary. The price—
undisclosed—is strictly American.
“There is only one hat of this kind
barges of petroleum to the upriver
The Columbia downstream was
fully navigable. In fact, Capt. Clyde
Raabe, president of the Columbia
river pilots, said it had never been
better for heavy shipping.
That was the result of dredging,
not of the weather. The army engi
neers have dredged the channel to
its full depth of 35 feet and width of
500 feet from Portland to the sea,
and have removed more than 11,
000,000 cubic yards of soil from the
river. Most of it was deposited by
last June’s flood.
The ocean storm, which is due to
bring warmer weather to Western
Oregon today, was likely to deposit
more snow on Portland. The wea
ther bureau said the fall might be
as much as 3 or 4 inches.
Has the Toni?
A package arrived at the Emer
ald yesterday addressed to last
year’s editor, Bob Frazier. It con
tained a home permanent set,
which is not exactly the sort of
thing that usually arrives with the
Just what Mr. Frazier intends
to do with the set, which arrived
gratis from a shampoo company,
is a matter for serious contempla
tion. Christmas being well past, it
is of absolutely no use as a gift. By
next year the lotion will have lost
The arrival of the permanent set
may mark a new era in journal
ism. With cigarettes and shampoo
kits coming in bunches, it should
only be a matter of weeks before
convertibles, airplanes, and maybe
even electronic typewriters begin
arriving at the Emerald’s door
Who said there is no progress,
Sure of himself: the guy whc
doesn’t buy a corsage when flowers
in the world—and there will never
be another,” said Suzanne Remy,
petite French designer.
“And it will be worn just once.
After that it will be put in the
Smithsonian Institution, where
they also have a hat worn by Mar
The Smithsonian also recently ac
quired the first airplane flown by
the Wright brothers.
But to get back to the hat—
Africa’s contribution came from
an anonymous ostrich, which do
nated ten tail plumes. An elderly
Italian, the only man left in New
York who can do this sort of work,
then spent two weeks laboriously
tearing the feathers apart and glu
ing them back together’ in the pat
tern Mile. Remy designed.
Twenty-Five Dyes Tried
He had to try 25 separate dyes
before he could achieve the five
shades of mauve the hat required
to go with Mrs. Truman’s grey
dress. The hat was then shaped and
completed by Mile. Remy’s Hungar
ian assistant, Nanouchka.
“It is really an international hat,”
said the designer, a pretty blue
eyed blonde of 28. “Mrs. Truman
had two fittings. She said ‘The Boss’
had seen it and liked it.”
What else could a diplomatic hus
band—even the President of the
The mauve ostrich feather crea
tion was one of three hats Mile.
! Remy designed for Mrs. Truman to
wear during inaugural ceremonies.
Daughter Margaret took one—a red
hat with a big side bow.
“Margaret doesn’t care much
about hats,” said Mile. Remy. “She
has such beautiful hair—she does
n’t really need to weat a hat often.
She tried on about 75 before she
picked the one with the red bow.”
Mrs. Truman was quick and deci
sive in her choices.
“She knows exactly what she
wants,” said the little milliner. “I
wish more of my customers were
Designing the inauguration hats
capped a pleasant success story for
Mile. Remy herself.
Success Story for Designer
“I came here from Paris in 1941
with only $200 and some materials,”
she recalled. “When I was down to
my last twenty cents I had to do
something. So I called up my friends
and began designing their hats.
Mrs. Truman was so pleased with
her three hats that she invited Mile.
Remy to attend the inaugural re
ception and ball. Mile. Remy is go
ing of course, but—
“I haven’t a decent hat to wear
myself,” she moaned. “I never do.
“I don’t think I’ve ever had a good
1 hat in my life.”
Chambers Says Common Interest,
Basic Qualification for Marriage
By Barbara Hollands
“Marriage is a three-legged
stool,” said Dr. O. R. Chambers of
the OSC psychology department,
addressing a large group of stud
ents last night at the YMCA. “If
one of the legs breaks, the stool
Dr. and Mrs. Chambers present
ed an informal discussion on the
subject “Anticipating Marriage,”
as the second in the series of lec
tures on “Marriage and the Family”
being presented by the YMCA and
the sophomore commission of the
The three legs of the stool to
which Dr. Chambers referred are
common interests on an intellectual,
a physical, and an emotional plane.
“After one is enamoured it is too
late to reason,” Dr. Chambers said.
“Be sure that you like the same
things and the same people. And
remember, too, that you’re not mar
rying merely a girl—but her whole
family as well.”
Dr. Chambers stressed the fact
that a couple should have similar
interests, and spend their free time
together, doing the same things.
“The situation is identical on the
emotional plane,” he went on. “The
indiviudals should agree on their
pet peeves, and get a lift from the
Mrs. Chambers added to the dis
cussion at frequent intervals, as Dr.
Chambers prophesied she would in
his opening remark when he said,
“As a hint to those contemplating
matrimony,—let your wife talk. It
is much less dangerous.’’’
Mrs. Chambers expressed the
opinion that every individual puts
on a front in adolescence, but when'”
he is mature enough to think of the
other person, and forgetTiimself, he.
is ready for marriage.
In reply to a question from the
floor, “Can a happy bachelorhood*
last,” Dr. Chambers replied that he .
has known very few unmarried peo
ple beyond the age of thirty-five
who are really happy.
Summing up his remarks, the*
speaker suggested that it is unwise
to expose oneself to a-person he
would not want to marry.
“Remember,” Dr. Chambers said, '
“all you have to do to marry a rich,
girl is never to go with a ..poor one.”

will be presented next ' Thursday*
night. Students are urged to ar- -
