DON'T FORGET COLLARS AND
z BELTS IF YOU TRAVEL
By Betty Brown
The extra collar is to be the princi
pal dress ammunition of the vaca
tioner this summer. A perky collar,
unspotted and unwrinkled, saves the
day, no matter how train-mussed one
gown may be.
For a silk suit this little ruff of
white Georgette crepe with band of
coral velvet is smart and dainty. The
tiny rosettes of white silk are cen
tered with coral.
For the more sedate serge tailored
suit the high stock of black with
moire silk saucerlike top of white
pique is very good. The triple cas
cade of black moire is odd" and smart.
A tailored belftrf silk in black and .
red "checker" blocks will relieve the.
primmest tailored gown of its sober
ness. The belt is sailor-knotted in
front. It will be worth the vacation
er's while to slip one of these gay
belts into her suitcase.
A FEW TRAGIC "EXAMPLES OF
The. taxi driver who can't change
a five-dollar bill.
The man who forgets to put the
cat out until his wife wakes him up
to do it at 1 a. m.
The madman of the links who car
ries only one golf ball.

CHINA GIVE$ US FASHIONS!
By Betty Brown
Prepare for a Chinese invasion.
The advance guard has arrived al
ready. In at least a dozen dressmaking
studios where I tarried. for news this
week I was told war has so disturbed
American trade-with Europe, Ameri
can importers are looking to China
for silks and dress fabrics.
But if this news brings visions jot
wrappery-slippery-kimona things to
your mind, I kodaked a Chinese mod
el which Mme. Marguerite of the
Fashion Art League of America has
just completed and it is not what
you'd call wrappery..
Though the coat is something of a
mandarin, the skirt and blouse are
cut on good American lines, and the
costume as a whole, picturesque as
it is, is conservative enough to be
worn on semi-formal occasions,
A lovely imported pattern in old
blue silk, embroidered in lighter blue A
and in dull gold, is used; the sash is w)
dark blue, fringed in bue of lighter
The simple " blouse is flesh color
Georgette crepe and the same mate
rial is inset at eitehr side of the skirt.
Teh sailor hat of distinctly American
contour is in Chinese blue Georgette
crepe banded with old gold ribbon.
