TRIBAL COSTUMES of the North American Indians will be modeled by members of the women's committee for the Modern Institute of Art in Beverly Hills when a special showing of the collection is presented next Friday at 8:15 p.m. Pictured here, Roxana Ray Stahl wears a Hopi girl's ceremonial headdress; Charlotte Liebig tries on a Taos Pueblo boot; Mrs. Delmer Daves has a Pueblo wool embroidered shawl over her shoulder and Louise Duque holds a Crow Indian dress. The show promises to be one of exceptional interest.
