LONDON WOMEN-USE THESE HAIR FRAMES
Here are some of the queer frames
that women are wearing in England
just npw to lielp shape their heads'
to the contour of the fashionable
Some of these caps nave been
worn, more or less, by the English
women ever since Queen Alexandria
introduced that pompadour and
"bath bun" hair-dressing which all
the court ladies and would-be fash
ionable English women followed so
many years. Queen Alexandria still
wears her wig dressed in this way.
The frame that looks like a per
fectly good masque is worn by the
woman who wants a "Madonna
part," with loosely waving hair over
the ears. The one that looks as
though it might have an electric
flashlight in the front of it is the one
that is used when the French twist
pompadour curls are worn.
The others are used at the back
of the head with strands of hair
brought through them, giving a place
to pin on switches and curls.
American women are in favor of
simple hair-dressing and usually have
enough hair to dress it in the close
fitting styles that are now worn.
But the usual middle-class British
matron will hie herself to the hair
dresser's the first thing after she re
ceives an invitation to dinner and
she will not think of attending the
theater without having her hair
dressed in such an elaborate manner
that the stage is obstructed for the
man who sits behind her.
ANDY SUES INTER OCEAN
Andy Lawrence, publisher of the
Examiner, has filed suit against the
Inter Ocean for $100,000, based on
editorials that have appeared in that
Lawrence names as defendants H.
H. Kohlsaat, Cyrus H. McQormick,
Charles R Crane, Julius Rosenwald
and James A. Patton.
A school class had been accus
tomed to sing each afternoon a short
hymn one line of which ran : "Weak
and sinful though we be." On a new
teacher taking charge she was puz
zled at the children's very indefinite
articulation of this line, and on inves
tigating found that nearly half the
class had been rendering it, "We can
sing,,full though we be!"
