way resturant and danced until the
place closed.
Next week Broadway is to see a
musical comedy called "The Masked
Model."
Even now it is seeing a model who
wears a mask that may cost as much
as 5 cents and a coat said to be worth
$6,000. The story is that the coun
tess was stagestruck and her hus
band wasn't so she has to wear a
mask to keep the count from recog
nizing her.
But this is not all. Didn't the sun
mask itself with the moon the other
day?

TALE OF A BEAUTIFUL MERMAID
The most fashionable mermaid in
the Atlantic ocean sat on a piece of
coral and wept salty tears.
"Now, now, my pretty one!" ex
claimed Neptune, "why should you
grieve?"
"When the land women took up the
chin chin, I wore one too," wailed the
beautiful mermaid. "When the land
women started the dancing craze, I
one-stepped on the waves as grace
fully as any of them. B-b-b-but,
n-n-ow," she sobbed, gazing wistful
ly at an approaching iceberg and
casting a rueful glance at her finny
extremity, "How, oh how, can I ever
take up the skating fad?"

FASHION SIGNS OF SPRING
The jacket of the springtime tailor
ed suit will be from 22 to 26 inches in
length, and there'll be a stiff little rip
ple at the hipline.
For your new spring frock the
frock you'll wear in May, and later
select a broad stripe, a big plaid or a
pin head check. You'll be right up
with fashion if you do.

We feel sorry for Houston, Tex.
One of its daily papers boasts of a 12
foot thermometer a merchant dis
plays on a prominent street corner.
It seems just awful to have a brand

'WHY GIRLS LEAVE BOARDING
HOMES!" COLLECT GIRL TELLS
jLSTHEft- PACKARD
New York. "Show me a rulejand
I'll break it!" So a well balancedgiri
of 25 told Miss Esther Packard, col
lege graduate, investigator of board
ing homes for the Consumers' league.
And that sums up the objection of
New York young women to the
boarding houses for women, estab
lished but unsuccessful throughout
Manhattan, according to Miss Pack
ard. There are too many repress. e
rules. Young girls want freedom.
Miss Packard recommends a "so
cialized apartment house" suites
running from room-and-kitchenette
to several rooms where working
girls can live as they like, with a large
cafeteria opea to the public, and sev
eral reception rooms where residents
may receive callers.
In 31 non-commercial homes for
working women, Miss Packard found
220 vacant rooms. Closing hours, no
dancing rules, and .other restrictions,
drive the girls out, Miss Packard
found. The landlady of a furnished
room house in the same block with
one of the "homes" said she frequent
ly rented rooin&.for the night to girls
locked out of the "home."
