Just by way of diversion from weightier mat-
ters, let's take time off to consider women’s slacks
from the gentleman’s viewpoint. Everything said
must be strictly impersonal, and should not pur-
port to represent any universal masculine atti-
tude toward women’s slacks. Probably there is no
universal attitude toward anything that concerns
An undeterminable number of men cling to the
archaic notion that women are more attractive when
they look like women. There is nothing moralistic in
their attitude. They are concerned only with the es-
* * ❖
Moreover, these men insist that'they are reason-
able in their views—that obviously there are places
where women should be forced to wear slacks even
though they would prefer dresses. Production plants,
for example, where safety is a vital factor.
Slacks are conceded to have functional virtues when
there is now to lie brushed off the porch or the walks,
a furnace to be wrestled with, rooms to be vacuum-
Some, but not .11 of the protestants approve
of slacks on the beach, in camp, for hiking and
other recreational occasions. A goodly number ap-
preciates well-cut slacks for informal wear about
the home and even, perhaps, when entertaining
If there is any consenus about the criticism, it is
slacks worn on the street for shopping, strolling, at-
tending gatherings outside the home—slacks worn with
high-heeled open-toed shoes and fur coats, itself an
Probably the matter is of no particular importance,
but sometime when you have opportunity, hide behind
something and listen to what soldiers say when they
get away from camp, looking for feminine companion-
ship, and find it dressed like a man.
Every really good editorial viewing with alarm
is supposed to offer a constructive suggestion. So
here goes—and please keep the nearer exits clear
for the moment:
How about an order by the WPB, the OP A, the
WMC, or somebody else in Washington, that every
woman shall be required to wear slacks for the dura-
The cynic from whom this idea is cribbed predicts
that the resulting screams of indignation, from the
slacks-wearers themselves, would make a London air-
raid alarm sound like the still, small voice of Adolf
