Page 4 THE NEW FASHION NATURALS CHILD CARE OPENS in KEARNS Black self-awareness has moved into fashion fast. The young black girl below is Carol Young. She is part of a firm called New Breed that designs, manufactures and sells the unmistakably Afro or “natural” clothes she wears here. As assistant advertising manager for New ‘ee Breed, Carol spends most of her time in their Brooklyn factory where there's a constant flow of visitors and'creative people with ideas that often end up in their Manhattan shop—called New Breed, too. In two short years this operation has grown from a single shop in Manhattan to over ten shops spread all across the country. Ideas for their fabrics come from African motifs in brilliant swirling color. There are tunic- By ROBERTA HERSCHFIELD like shirts that you can wear sashed or loose, alone or with matching pants, and there are some marvelous arrangements that are actually tubes of fabric on elastic bands.

CURIOUS COMBINATION CREATES AN EXTRAORDINARY PLAY LOT The combination of a bearded, long-haired art professor and a number of strikingly original sculptured forms has created an extra-ordinary play lot for children in Holyoke, Mass. The playground, generated by Holyoke’s Model Cities process, was built despite the suspicions of mothers who thought that their children might be exposed to a hippie culture. The project also survived an investigation of the _ city’s Board of Aldermen. “HUD Challenge”, the official magazine of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, carries the story in its May-June issue. Prof. Jerold| Wyman, Chairman of the Art Department at Holyoke Community College, wanted to use his talent and his summer vacation last year in a way that would serve a useful public purpose. He planned to offer to his summer students an unconventional sculpture course with the major project to be an “aesthetic play area” which could then be donated to the city. Complications plagued Mr. Wyman from the start. His summer course was cancelled, thus depriving him of his anticipated student work force. Soon after construction started, parents began to express doubts about his wood and concrete forms called ‘““privacy-intimacy shelters,” a climbing maze and toadstools. But Mr. Wyman’s friends enlisted about 50 neighborhood youngsters who made the project site a work-play area. They were an unusual clean-up and construction crew as one has ever seen, especially when licking ice cream cones. The Park officially opened in October 1969, some five months after work began. An alderman who had opposed it was defeated for reelection. Mr. Wyman, who had set out to make the park “a symbol to the local people, giving evidence that things can happen...” won praise from Mayor William S._ Taupier. One of the significant things about the undertaking was the fact that planning and building the play lot helped make local political history and demonstrated how Model Cities guidelines can be implemented. The evolving project supported the Mayor’s theory that planners must try not to isolate themselves from politics, because such aloofness can imperil or defeat needed municipal projects. “HUD Challenge’ appears bi-monthly, and serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas and innovations between HUD staff throughout the country, HUD-related agencies, businesses public. and the institutions, concerned Housing Send letters, articles, poems, _ art work or photographs for publication, to Editorial Offices, 975 E. 3300 South Suite 1, Salt Lake City, Utah 84106.
