Business Calls Youth
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Sept. 27.?
Business is calling youths who nor?
mally would be entering college now,
Dean Frederick S. oJnes, of the Yale
academic department, said to-day, in
explanation of the fact that the enrol?
ment of 3,000 at Yale was somewhat
les3 than had been expected.
"There probably will be about 400
fewer enrolled in the university than
before the war,'' he said. "The de?
crease is probably due to the demand
for labor to which college men are re?
sponding. Many young men eligible
for college are turnrng to business in?

The Important Consideration of individuality in

FOR WOMEN AND MISSES
Gown fashions do not converge to any particu?
lar type of silhouette. On the contrary, style
motifs are so divergent that many influences
are traced in the silhouette and treatment. The
personality of the petite type is well expressed
in the picturesque bouffant and panier fashions:
that of the tall, stately type in the classic drapes
and straight lines. Outstanding style notes are
cap sleeves, short sleeves, ruchings, pipe organ
and cartridge plaitings, flounces, beading, com?
plex embroideries, and fur accentuations.
