VACATION TOGS
By Betty Brown
If you are going to leave your
trunk behind when you go vacation
ing, limit your wardrobe to a one
piece frock and top coat, and leave
your clothes worries at home. If the
dress is pussy willow in midnight
blue, and the coat sand color, or tan
inlserge or lightweight cloth, you will
be fashionably as well as comforta
bly dressed. 'Vacation time, mind
(tfi you, is no time to let down in the
matter of clothes. Select your gown
and coat with this happy thoxight in
mind. Don't be a dowd just because
you are traveling.
The voile blouse, all fluffed out in
frills or collars or cuffs of gay-colored
organdie or voile loom up
brightly among summer finery, and
if you are planning a vacation outfit
take a second look at the voile blous
es. It's cooler than silk and softer
than the organdies and lingerie
things that are so lovely but have
so unlovely a way of getting crinkled
and crushed.
FLOWERY BLOUSE SO COOL AND
PRETTY
By Betty Brown
A summery little blouse is made of
Dresden Georgette crepe specked
with all the colors of a summer gar
den. There's no frilly trimming to it,
just two tabs of black taffeta ribbon
that fall from the white organdie col
lar, and bands of black ribbon form
ing little "wrist garters" to hold the
cuffs in place.
At either side the material is cut
into a square tab and falls losely over
an inserted piece of the crepe. The
organdie collar is adjustable.
After long investigation a French
scientist declares tuberculosis can
be transmitted by the perspiration.
