STYLES FOR KIDDIES
By Betty Brown
A nice gray elephant or bright red
horse is now stenciled on the little
person's clothes rather than the
wreaths of flowers or a flock of
birds. These "circus" decorations
are newest in kiddie clothes. All the
animals that ever came out of the
ark are to be seen on the little frocks
and coats and bonnets.
Cut-out patterns of animals in gay
colors are used on the bottoms of
skirts or square cut yoke. Cunning
little sunbonnets may have a whole
troop of animals splashed across the

'NATURE CHILDREN" LIVE IN THE WOODS
Atlanta,. Ga.,. July. 6. "Nature
children" are roaming the woods,
swimming the streams, climbing the
trees and mocking the birds over an
old battlefield at Jester's Old Mill, 16
miles from Atlanta!
Clad in flowing Grecian robes, or
in less, they gambol among the for
est glades and run at random over
the grassy slopes carefree, worry
less, attuned to perfect health!
Athenian culture, Spartan cour
age, Olympian grace are the ideals
ever before these babes of the by
paths, whose parents have chosen
this ancient method of giving their
children an opportunity for right

Miss Robert Jester, a girl of S, and
George Alfred Jester, going on 3

They explore the unused mill race,
invade the homes of the bullfrog and
the thrush and win at first hand a
love of nature, that, their parents be
lieve, will make them better citizens
in days to come.
And no child at Jester's Old Mill
has ever been sick since the camp
