Neither Partner Touches the Other in the "Innova

Stowed Awau in Hie Pockets All the Time and
the Woman's Resting on Her Hips.
"That Dance Is for Soul Mates," Comments a Spec
tator of an Exhibition by the Castles, "for No Mere
Ordinary Husband and Wife Can Keep Step
by the Power of Auto Suggestion.'
Bg Marguerite Mooert Marthall.
It's so purer than the purest, this Innovation Tamo that the Vernon
Castles danced at Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish's
waits or the two-step, or eren the dear
dsnce one ever heard of, before the Innovation, the
dancing partners at least i touched each other's hands.
But a goodly two feet of floor space separates the trip,
pen of the touchless tango. It Is the ideal dance for
Icebergs, surgeons In antiseptic raiment and militant
moralists If they can do it.
For as I looked on at Castle House yesterday after
noon, it seemed to me that one salient characteristic
of the Innovation, as compared with the old-stylo tango.
Is the greater difficulty of the former. A woman must
have excellent poise,
and a eonetderebte experience to be
her male partner white entirely ungutded by him. Stage dancers hare j
often varied their steps In this fashion, hut I doubt f it comes easily to j
the social dancer.
WOMEN WILL OO IN FOR IT ALL
On this very account the Innova
tion, If it Is generally adopted, will
doubtless Increase th dance mania.
In an effort to master th solo steps i
women will take more twenty-flve-dollar
leasons, will devote more hours
to torpslchorean practice, will talk,
