NO "MILITARY STRIDE" IF YOU VALUE GRACE
LESSONS FROM IRENE HOUGH'S BEAUTY
BY 1DAM M'GLONE GIBSON
Dame fashion has a new ally (he
girl with the military stride!
She has tramped right up to the
firing line and captured the fort so
long held by the army of the debu
tant slouchers."
Thq girl with the military stride
and square shoulders and pointed
chin, will find many followers, more'a
the. pity, for girls were never intend
ed to look like soldiers, though they
must sometimes have the courage of
the fighting man but she'll find one
rebel in the camp, and that's Irene
Hough, the most beautiful telephone
girl in America.
Miss Hough will have none of the
military stride, and this is what she
says about it:
"The debutant slouch was horrid,
but it wasn't half so bad as the new
military stride the girls are practic
ing. I can't understand why a girl
should want to look or walk like a
bold grenadier, she' so much more
interesting when she acts like a girl.
Soldiers are not gracetul, their mili
tary tramp is fine on the parade
ground or in battle march, but it's ab
surd on the street.
"I admire the soldier man, but I
shall not imitate him Anyway, I'd
rather be a girl than a soldier any
day. I like to follow the new fashions,
but 111 desert if I have to adopt the
military stride."
