New Elegance in Current Mode
Calls for Quality-Kind Silks
(Recipes Below.)
Incredible as it may seem the cal­
endar is bringing Thanksgiving time
again and with it comes to every
homemuker thoughts tor the Thanks­
giving menu—plans for its prepara­
tion and anticipation of the fam ily’s
Today, however, I want to re­
verse this whole situation. I want
to suggest to you
that enjoyment of
your fam ily on
Thanksgiving day
should be the key­
note of every one
of tha plans that
you make for the
Now that
does not mean for
one minute that I
that the Thanksgiving dinner be
slighted. I couldn't do that, for who
of us for one minute would sacri­
fice those precious memories of
Thanksgiving dinners at grandmoth­
ers that are really priceless heir­
looms. No, 1 say—we won’t sacrifice
the dinner—but we will plan it so
that you will be as free as possible
on Thanksgiving day so that you too
can enjoy the fam ily and let the
fam ily enjoy you. A m iracle you
say? No—not really—just wise plan­
n in g -p le n ty of work the day before
perhaps—but tim e— no w orry—and
an easy dinner on Thanksgiving—
and that's worth while isn't it?
How to do it? Well here are my
suggestions. F irst, it is entirely pos­
sible to clean, prepare and even
stuff the turkey the day before
Thanksgiving morning. Then put it
on a rack in an open roasting pan
and store it in your refrigerator
over night. I f you have a mechani­
cal refrigerator it w ill be running of
course. I f you have an ice refrig ­
erator, be sure to get an ample sup­
ply of ice so that your refrigerator
can really work for you over this
Vegetables—salads—relishes, in­
cluding celery, radish roses, etc.,
even desserts, one
and all can be
gotten ready on
as I say, then all
that remains for
Thanksgiving day
is just the cook­
ing, the table set­
ting and later the
serving of the viands.
Below I am including a number
of Thanksgiving recipes which are
all planned for just such Thanks­
giving ease. And—a happy Thanks­
giving to each one of you.

person served. Dress, clean, stuff

H A T was good enough for our
’ ’ great - great - grandmamas
should be equally as good for us.
Some such thought must have moti­
vated the minds of our modern fab-
ricists when they announced for fall
and winter 1939-1940 a revival of the
quality-kind old-fashioned silks such
as were the pride and the joy of our
ancestresses. Call them heirloom
I silks if you will, for some of the
| silk weaves so chic and so fabric-
fine that are considered high-style
; today but tell the story over again
; of sterling-worth bengalines, failles;
likewise traditional ottoman silks
| and grosgrains, also stand-alone
| moires and taffetas that make music
- with their rustle of real honest-to-
goodness silk.
When you come to analyze the
present situation, the re-incarnation
in current fashion of the elegant
i “ lovely lady” fashions so charac­
teristic of the early Victorian and
Edwardian periods, we of this gen­
eration just naturally have to think
in terms of fabric elegance.
The idea that prevails this season
is fabric elegance for dresses
styled with utmost simplicity, de­
pending on accessories for dash and
allure. High value is put on skillful
fabric treatm ent in drapes, shirr-
ings, pleating and self-fabric details.
It is a very silk-conscious group
we present in the illustration here­
with. A great favorite with French
designers is pure silk jersey which
they say, and they prove it in the
lovely creations they turn out, has
no peer when it comes to sculptural
draping and intriguing shirring.
The attractive dress to the left in
the picture is of smooth, dark silk
jersey. Although it has been elab­
orately draped and shirred, the slen­
der silhouette has been in no respect
I f you haven’t a silk
jersey (preferably black) daytime
dress in your collection you are los­
ing out on a lot of pleasure and com­
fort. Choose dark or black jersey
for practical afternoon wear and for
your loveliest form al let it be Of
white silk jersey sculpturally draped,
adding gold accents to make it su­
premely beautiful.
A draped and shirred green silk
crepe luncheon dress, designed for
the new corseted lady, is shown to
the right. It speaks eloquently in
favor of fabric treatm ent. Note the
I self fabric pleated ruffle on the bod-
’ ice ' the wide corselet belt and
other fetching styling details.
Centered in the trio is a striking
evening ensémble dyveíopéd' of
handsome silk white (¿mle.for faille,
such as our grandmothers treasured,

bpef peplum that flares from the
new lowered waistline of the basque
jacket. The novel square buttons
are of outstanding style importance.

stored away among heirlooms some
of the gó'rgeous jeweled buttonsvthat

In conclusion just a word about
the stunning jacket tailored suits
that are made of black' bengaline
silk or faille. These silk classics
register among the topnotch fash­
ions of the day.

Whimsical Velvet
Turbans in Colors
Milliners are designing adorable
little velvet turbans, bright with col­
or, to wear with fur coats this winter
or to crown smart dinner gowns with
glory. These little fantasies of velvet
are often allover shirred or are
formed of myriads of little corded
loops. Some houses are showing
them in that old-time favorite, old
gold. Others exploit them in teal
blue to ensemble with silver jewelry
set in blue stones, and as for eye-
dazzling red, there’s nothing sm art­
er than a red hat with a black dress.
In fact these cunning velvet tur­
bans have gone on a gay and festive
color spree. The fireman-red velvet
types make you “ stop, look and lis­
ten’’ but you'll love these startling
reds just the same. With dark furs
they are simply perfect.
Most of these flattering little hats
have a snood to cover the coiffure
at the back, and it’s “ m ighty like a
rose” that some of them look being
often a huge pouf of velvet in flow­
er color, posed jauntily low over
the brow.
