PARIS STYLES, BUT MADE IN
Paris is "predicting the vogue of
the Spanish gown!" Hum-m wasn't
it last June in the early exposition
days that the Carmencita gown was
so popular with' American women?
And the Carmencita or Spanish
gown is of American origin, the de
isgn of Mme. Alia Ripley, president of
the Fashion Art League of America.
American designers are not only
creating styles, but they are gener
ously handing them on to Paree.
e And here's the picture of the Span
ish gown that's new in Paris but
made in America. Mme. Ripley's
model is made of a heavy silk stripe
in black and white and cerise, with
cerise velvet waist with bolero of

NEIL SHOWS UP WORKINGS OF
SO-CALLED "CHARITY FOLKS"
By Henry Neil
Organized charities of Chicago are
just about to launch a collection cam
paign to "help" the deserted families
that they have had taken off the
mothers' pension roll.

any day one can see the way these
mothers are helped. The mothers are
bidding their children good-bye, with
grief that would melt the heart of
anyone but a charity expert

two sweet, innocent, little girls good

institution. The institution collects
from the county tax fund $15 per

to keep her children because the fa

Europe, where he went to visit his
parents just before the war started.
This mother could not- get the
"pension" because she was deserted.
That is, her husband was held by a
country at war. And to show our
neutrality we break the mother's'
heart and give the children a "happy
Christmas" in an institution at a cost
of $30 a month to the taxpayers. All
to "prevent desertion."
