SOMBER GOWNS AND THIN MATERIALS

Notwithstanding all the bright
colors that have been shown this sea
son, the fashionable woman puts her
faith in black. Every third gown you
see on the streets of Paris, New York
or Chicago is of that somber color.
A black chiffon gown with black
taffeta ruffles is one of the season's
most beautiful afternoon costumes.
There is an increased fullness about
the waist of all formal gowns. The
cunning dressmaker, because of this,
is making the tops of almost all skirts
of shirred lace chiffon or silk voile.
Then she puts on her frills and fur
belows of whatever material her cus
tomer happens to fancy. There seems
to be no diminuation of ruffles, but
probably by fall gowns will grow
plainer, as the heavy materials that
are shown in the advance styles for
l fall will hardly make fine ruffles.
To oblige a descendant of Thomas
Jefferson, Miss Genevieve Champ
Clark, daughter of the Speaker,
Champ Clark, brayed the "three
times a bridesmaid, never a bride"
tradition to act as maid of honor to
Miss Nathalie May Boush, who be
came the wife of G. Gordon Asher of
. Mrs. Elizabeth Tilton, member of
the legislative committee of the Bos
ion Federated Woman's clubs, and
chairman of the alcoholic education
committee of the Boston Associated
Charities, says "Women can't carry
on their fights for health' and effi
ciency and leave out the alcohol ques-.
tion. Alcohol is playing a great part
in everything we women are fighting
poverty, crime, immorality and dis
ease." o o
