clothes was denied today by Mrs.
Christian Hemmick, suffragist, so
ciety leader and amateur playwright.

adopt men's costumes," she declared
"Such a dress for women is too ugjy
trousers and all. I do not believe
that the present immodest and sen
sational styles will long continue.
The present style of expose gown
and slit skirt is traceable solely to the
fashion dictators of Paris."
Even though Mrs. Hemmick op
poses men's' clothes for women, she ,

furcated garment, will come into its
own simply because it is comfortable,
giving freedom of locomotion and
yet appearing like a real skirt.
