The "307 gown," at the right, seen
at the recent Fashion Art League of
America exposition, proves the" effec
tiveness of black and-hite for even
ing wear. Black and white striped
o
satin, each stripe an inch wide, was
used to make the skirt, and black lace
was draped into a low-cut evening
gown, suspended over the shoulders
with narrow straps of black velvet
A cluster of roses of "dead rose"
tints held the skirt up in a graceful
drapery at the right.
"A NEW BRAND OF LOVE MAKING NEEDED,
SAYS LILIAN BELL TO ENGAGED GIRLS
Marriage nowadays consists most'
ly of the man's whistling from dowa
stairs and the girl falling out of the
front window.
I may exaggerate a little but what
I mean to say is: Nobody takes time
to make love any more.
If you don't believe me when I say
that? men don't know how to make
lotjj ask your wife or sweetheart
loojt' into her eyes while she is an
swering you, and then analyze, if you
hivlS any gray matter at all! the
caUse of your misunderstandings and
quarjels.
What do you call making love?
A few kisses? g
Mest men think when they can get
to the point where a girl will accept
their caresses that the day is won!
Why even after marriage, the game
of being in love has just begun!
I have heard many a man sit up
and tell me what his wife thought of
him, and even while he was talking,
I have got a wireless from her say
ing: M'Do I, though? You are a woman
and you know what I would have if I
could, and how I have had to make
him believe he was all he is saying,
because he is my husband!"
Not that she would give him up.
Not that seh would leave him nor
have anybody else if she could. She
loves him all she can and he loves her
all he wants to. He had won the
game, but
Love making is much more than
getting well enough acquainted to
call each other by your first names,
wanting to hold hands and talking
about getting married;
Love is a delicate, valuable thing.
It holds life ' together makes life
worth living. The lif e which has no
love in it is not life at all it is a bare
existence.
So love must be MADE. And to,
make love means that you must so
study yohr sweetheart's mental needs
that you will make your own way of
supplying them actually indispensible
to her.
Make such sensible love to her
that no other men could copy your
method nor get her away from you
if he tried.
It almost makes me weep when I
think what a chance a clever man has
to distinguish himself in this line and
how he never seems to avail himself
of it.
Most men think that companion
ship is all that is necessary. The girl
seems to like it, and it saves a lot of
bother not to have to fuss around and
think thoughts and make remarks at
night which sound idiotic by daylight,
If I were a man, I think I would
make it my business to invent, copy
right and trademark an entirely new
brand of love making not necessar
ily highbrow but certainly high class.
There is a difference.
A man will cudgel his brains, lose
sleep and irsk his last dollar to get
out a new line in business one that
beats all bis friends and keeps his
competitors guessing, yet he will use
an old line of lovemaking, winch was
obsolete when Noah built the ark.
In fact love fsn't made any more.
