    Background: AUTUMN BRINGS MANY CHANGES, TREES LOSE THEIR LEAVES ON THE FARMS THE POULTRY LOSE THEIR FEATHERS. PEOPLE MIGHT NOT CARE ABOUT THE LEAVES, BUT DISCARDED FEATHERS ARE PROVING A VALUABLE ADDITION TO THE LIST OF RAW MATERIALS IN THE MILLINERS' CATALOGUE.

    FOR THE PAST 5-YEARS BRITAIN'S AMATEUR HAT-MAKERS HAVE BANDED TOGETHER EACH NOVEMBER, TO STAGE A SHOWING OF THEIR LATEST FEATHERED CREATION AS PART OF THE INTERNATIONAL POULTRY SHOW, OPENING AT LONDON'S OLYMPIA, NEXT WEEK.

    IT IS A COMPETITIVE CRAFT, AND BEFORE THE HATS GO ON SHOW TO THE PUBLIC THERE'S A SPECIAL PARADE AT WHICH PRIZES ARE AWARDED. THERE ARE TWO CLASSES -- ONE FOR FASHION HATS, THE OTHER FOR PURELY "ZANY" CREATIONS......A SECTION WHICH HAS PRODUCED SOME OF THE MOST FANTASTIC HATS EVER TO ADORN A FEMALE HEAD.

    THERE IS NO RESTRICTION ON THE TYPE OF FEATHERS USED, DUCKS, CHICKENS, OR TURKEYS, AND THE DESIGNS THE PRODUCTS OF THEIR CREATOR'S IMAGINATION.
