JUST THE GOWN FOR A DRESS-IN-A-HURRY
Rj-v-'yS'' "-'''& -' j-'-gvg'
By Betty Brown
Because It is so simply made that
it can be slipped on over her head in
a minute this clever little school frock
should appeal to the girl who some
times dresses in a hurry.
Navy blue gabardine is the slip pic
tured here, but the same model
would make up attractively in brown
corduroy. . Black satin trims the
roomy, practical pockets and the belt
and makes a cuff for the lingerie
sleeves. Thin sleeves, by the way are
cool and comfortable fpr schoolrQom
wear. Theyshould of course be at
tached to an underwaist rather than
to the cloth gown.
NELSON PREDICTS DUPLICATE
OF TRIANGLE SHIRT CO. FIRE
Martin J. Isaacs, attorney for the
clothing bosses, strutted out of Mu
nicipal Judge Flanagan's court yes
terday very much satisfied with him
self. He had won his case. Edward
Strauss, who owns a shop on the
sixth floor of a building at 400 S.
Market st, had been discharged.
Oscar P. Nelson, 'state factory in
spector, had had Strauss arraigned
for keeping the doors of his shops
locked in violation of the health, saf
ety and comfort act.
Judge Flanagan read Section 15 of
the act. "It says nothing about locks
being on doors,' he stated, with a
"But it provides that all doors
must be constructed that they may
be easily and immediately opened,"
said John Reed, representing the
"Fm afraid to confess that I can
not see anything pertaining to
locks," said the judge.
After an hour's argument on tins''
point Judge Flanagan adjourned
court and went over to the factory
with Nelson, Isaacs, Reed and
Strauss. There Nelson pointed out
how dangerous it was to keep the
doors locked and how they were
locked when he made his inspection.
The judge went back to his court
room and discharged Strauss.
"Judge Flanagan's rulings In this
and other cases practically nullifies
the health, safety and comfort and
garment acts," said Nelson. "If a
lock isn't part of a door and man-f
ufacturers are permitted to keep the
doors of their factories locked, one
of these days we will have a disaster
which will duplicate the Triangle
Shirt Factory fire of New York."
