TUNICS NOW BEING WORN BY
The tunic no longer belongs ex
clusively to the fluffy dancing frock.
Miss Tailor-Maid has appropriated it
and the graceful double skirt will
give a suggestion of elegance to
many new street gowns. If you have
your "doots" about the success of
the tailored tunic, notice this frock
which I saw the other day in the
studio of Mme. Grosfield of the Fash
ion Art League of America.
Brown broadcloth was used in its
development The coat skirt is cut
rather full to harmonize with the
tunic. The high flaring collar and
the semi-belt are features that will
appear in many modish spring suits.
SANITARIUM DOCTORS MAY
HAVE TUBERCULOSIS CURE
A specific for tuberculosis may at
last be found.
Two scientists and a skilled labor
atory man, poring over their hiero
glyphics and concoctions of chemis
try at the Chicago municipal tuber
culosis sanitarium, believe they have
found a certain cure for consumption.
"We are hopeful," said Dr. J. W.
Coon, sup't of the sanitarium, when
pressed for a statement as to wheth
er or not a cure had really been
"It may be six months, even two
years, before the researches and
tests are completed. But no an
nouncement wil be made until we
are sure an actual cure has been
found. If it proves out it will be giv
en to the world absolutely free. It
will not be patented."
JTests, apparently successful, have
been made on guinea pigs, rabbits
and white mice. It has not been
tried on any humans.
Dr. Harry J. Corper, he,ad of the
laboratory, and Dr. W. A. Gekler, as
sociate medical director, are the sci
entists conducting the quest for the
annihilator of the great white plague.
