SPRING FASHION REVUE STELLAR SWEETWATER EVENT Sweetwater's merchants joined in staging a new and unique type of style show Monday night when the Spring Fashion Revue was inaugurated. That this type of fashion display has strong public appeal was demon- strated as thousands of residents of the city and sur- rounding trade area made a carnival event of the affair. It was a real community event, staged with local talent as models who did their share in making it an outstand- ing fashion show. Everyone entered into the spirit of the revue and the throngs who witnessed the modeling were exceptionally good natured and orderly. It is not stretching a point to say a Mardi Gras atmosphere pre- vailed. Too much credit cannot be given to the boys and girls who so whole-heartedly entered into the bicycle parade which preceded the window shows in the stores. T...
