TO JACKSON PARK
When Dr. Rosalie M. Ladova,
minus the skirt of her bathing cos
tume, dived in the water at the Jack
son Park bathing beach yesterday,
she stirred up the lake.
That wasn't all. She stirred up the
members of women's clubs, minis
ters, and even aroused Chief of Po
lice McWeeny, which is some arous
irg. :ss Ladova was arrested by an
outraged beach policeman, who had
read ail-about "September Mom." At
the Hyde Park police station she gave
her opinion of the park bathing rules.
Her slogan is: "Skirjts for men
bathers tights or close-fitting
bloomers for girls if their figures
permit it" She did not say who was
to be the judge of whether "their fig- (jfy
ures permit it."
"Women can't swim in skirts and
swim properly," said Miss Ladova,
who is- an expert diver. "Anyway,
if their figures are sufficiently round
ed, they do not need as much cover
ing as men. My costume-was more
decent than that worn by men. I was
covered from head to foot, but all
around me were men naked to their

of merely trunks and a shirt, she
would have been doing the sensible
Even Chief McWeeny came to the
I defense of the woman. "Women
have as much right to expose their
arms and legs as men," he declared.
"The people are growing too prudish
in regard to almost everything."
It's all one to the chief. He an't

While Dr. Ladova was stirring "
things up in the water, the well
known slit skirt was getting Its reg
ular Sunday lashing. Rev. P. C. -Bruner
orated against the Jacknike
garment, and his sermon sounded
like an argument for prohibition.
"The slit skirt is more suggestive
than bare legs," he said. "The rust
ling of silken folds that expose the
ankle is the hissing of the serpent."
Rev. Brunner did not say whether
the hiss was that of a garter snake.
