That's what s happening " now that so many of our servicemen are re- turning to those "they hold dear. The season of the year no longer has anything to do with the case. One of the reactions to the war is that weddings come up in any month. In fact, they have become year-rouna events. This year with the return of thou- sands and thousands of eligi- bles, wedding bells will be ringing more frequently than ever. Design- ers ar~ outdoing themselves in creating just one lovely gown after another for brides-to-be who want to say "I do" in a wedding dress fashioned with fitted basque waists and very full skirts in such sheer, cloudlike fabrics as ninon, mous- seline de sole, net, marquisette or organza. There are also combina- tions of lace and net, satin and net, cr chiffon and lace. Several designers are featuring rhumba ruffles, starting at the waistline and extending to short full trains. There is lots of back inter- est, too. either in skirt fullness or in bustle bows. Peplums and apron effects vary the skirt treatments in front. Off-shoulder bodices and bertha necklines add a picturesque note to a number of dresses of the heirloom type. The favored head- dlress these days is the very full fingertip veil of fine net or tulle, falling from a little circlet or bon- net or pancake beret of fluted net. The illustration herewith brings you a preview of Just such gowns as you will see parading down the cen- ter aisles in endless procession, for weddings are scheduled to take place in record number this year. Lovely beyond words is the very youthful-looking bridal dress of sheerest dotted net shown to the left in the picture. In this bewitching lit- tie frock, so frilly and ruffly and sheer, so refreshingly naive in its simplicity and girlish charm, not only the groom but each and every guest will have fallen in love with this winsome bride. A muchly beruffled bertha falls bewitchingly over her shoulders. The simple headdress she wears is of artfully arranged plain net. Traditional satin of choicest weave fashions the stately gown centered in the group. It carries out formality to perfection. The fine seed pearl embroidery that en- hances the bodice is also repeated around the neck to encircle a throat-high yoke of transparent net. The very young bride or the bride with the small "teen-timer" figure will go for the picturesque gown to the right, made of an indescribably fine net. The bodice pleating is set on a flesh-colored yoke giving an en- chanting off-shoulder effect. The pleatings on the skirt are applied with exceeding grace to carry on about the short and full train. This portrait gown will be effective made up of mousseline de sole or fine ninon or soft and sheer voile. For the bride who plans a mid- season wedding, a gown as effective as the traditional white satin is fash- ioned of an all-over eyeleted white cotton sheer. This could be easily made by the bride-to-be who can sew. Let the bodice be of the fitted type, prettified with a sweetheart neckline. Make the skirt gathered slightly into the waistline but cut on a circular movement that de- velops into a long train that will bil- low out behind with infinite grace as the wedding cortege moves down the aisle. Released by Western Newspaper Union. Cotton Pique Suit We are hearing so much about suits that are made of de luxe cot- tons in dark colors as being top fashion for summer and early au- tumn wear. Here is just such a suit, and it is made of green and white check pique. White pique i cuffs, collar facing and a novel but- ~ ton-back jacket-edge treatment add excitement. This stunning two- piece by Helen Morgan makes a perfect going-away costume for the midsummer or early fall bride.~ Wide Brimmed Hats With Sheer Frocks That bulky look you see in many of the lovely white summer dressy hats is a myth. That is, they are not clumsy or heavy in the least. It's that they are lavished with bil- lowy masses of net and tulle and veiling about their wide brims until sometimes they look almost top- heavy, but really these airy-fairy confections are light as a feather. The hat obthe moment to wear with one's dressy summer prints and pretty.pretty black sheer frocks is the wide-brimmed black straw; the wider the brim the smarter. An in- teresting feature about these black b[auties is that more often than not the brims are made to look dr~ssy with fluted edges of lace or black net or they may take on big ruchings of black sheer Sometimes the brims themselves aro a structure of va- pory black tulle and lace manipu- lated on a wire foundation. Be the hat a simple straw, a fine Milan or a muchly manipulated brim with sheer lacy effect, the fact remains that the large black hat is a fashion favorite this summer. Hats Styled for Up Hairdo Come as Welcome News women who have been having dif- ficulty in fitting hats over the top. knot hairdo will welcome the news that crownless hats are now being made that hook or snap around the bun or the cluster of curls atop milady's head. These can be ad- justed for a perfect fit. Sometimes a tall ruche of black or white sheer on the hat surrounds the topknot ment. WASHINGTON QUIETEST IN YEARS The Dist4-~ct of Columbia looks more like a peacetime capital this summer than in many years For the first time since the war, the house is now planning a long recess. This reflects increased congres- sional confidence in the new White House set-up, also the fact that many a legislator yearns for home. . . The dollar-a-year men and brass hats who planned to check out after Germany's 'defeat haven't started their exodus. Instead they've been joined by hundreds of business men who've moved in to get their reconversion headaches unsnarled. . . Thousands of returning officers and enlisted men from Europe have added to the housing and feeding problem.-Parking spaces along the Potomac are crowded on hot nights with G.I. Joes and G.I. Janes and government workers searching for a cool breeze. Washington is more peaceful, but still jammed. Adding to the ,mush are the Tru- man boys who have descended on Washington They fall into three categories: (1) The Missouri boys, friends of Truman and Bob Hanne- gan looking for jobs, patronage, and juicy political plums (2) The Pauley boys from Southern Califor- nia--friends of former Democratic Treasurer Ed Pauley who've rushed into town to climb on the gravy train. They're brash and crude for the most part, have little respect for the taxpayers' money, and already have their eyes on the gilded dome of the capitol Third group are the "Battery K" men, These are the World War I vets who saw service with Harry Truman in 1917 and 1918. Most are satisfied with a I~i~ief "hello" and a handshake from their hero. Others cling to the wrought iron gates of the White House, think that their comradeship with the new chief executive is a guarantee of a soft government job.

Everyone he taps for $5,000 will feel like contribut. ing twice as much to the Republi- cans to hoot the Pauley crowd out.
