Note the suspenders! Husbands
will have a chance to return those
embroidered monstrosities which
wifie has been- giving them at Christ
mas for years and years.
These hats are all shown at fash

name of some famous French mil
liner in the crown.
Lace butterflies will be one of the
most popular of hat trimmings this
year, and the upturned ruche of lace
about the crown has reached such
.proportions that one can wear very
little other trimming.
The new dress fashions show a
marked inclination to emphasize the
size of one's hips not the shelf-like
ones of grandmother's times, but a
broad, curving line from waist to
knees.
With a plaid skirt like the illus
tration, a white silk shirt and a plain,
short coat will be worn.

With never a chance In the race,
But it's worse to lose out when you've
gone the wrong route
When you've held to the heart

You may sigh for the men clear be
hind, You may shout to the winner,
"Well done
But somehow to me there is deep
