Why can't I skate, ah, me,
Over the ice afar,
When with my skates I .frame
Figures of eight, etcet,
. Do I get wild acclaim?
No, all I get is wet!
When o'er the frigid lakes
Free as a bird I roam,
Every one present makes
Offers to help me home!

"Arnica quick he'll die!"
Hark! ambulances whirl!
Wherefore again I sigh:

SMART LITTLE VEST GIVES THIS
GOWN AN AIR!
By Betty Brown
Si In your fashion scrap book give
this frock a prominent place a place
where it will catch your eye when
you are planning your early spring
gown, for you'll probably not find an
other that combines so many charm
ing features as this "creation" in
Panama cloth and Roman striped

silk, linen or Panama cloth lend
themselves admirably to this design,

Art League of America, who originat
ed this Eton model, used Panama
cloth in the natural color and a vivid
striped silk to make the vest and
cuffs and collar.

gives the suit its distinction and
don't omit the bag, it's quite the most
artistic touch in the entire outfit.
