ally alone. It was a quiet morning
and only two or three lawyers were
sitting in the room. The old judge
knew me and invited me up to the
bench in a friendly sort of way to
transact my business. I got it over
with just as easy as buying someone
a cigar. The things that I dreaded
were not in existence. That experi
ence taught me a lesson and later on
when I had a real case I carried no
foolish fears into the court room."
Lawyer-man or girl swimmer,
whatever you may be, you can make
your life happier if you dive in re
gardless t)f your fears. Once you
"hit the water," things will look bet
ter to you. The next effort will be
vastly easier; something to enjoy in
stead of dread just because you
tried when you were scared.

A WORD FROM BETTY BROWN
The Weatherman, not the Fashion
Lady, has brought such warm-weath
er things as voiles, organdies and
ginghams into favor. The half
sleeves that fashion frowned on so
sternly a month ago are not so un
fashionable as they used to me. We
can stand just so much discomfort
then comes rebellion and comfor
table clothes.
The sheer gowns of voile and other
summery fabrics are, of course,
much "hooped," and this effect is
very easily gained as the shops now
provide a ready-made little hoop
skirt of stiffly feather-boned cotton
net. This little petticoat is the mod
ern version of grandmother's hoop
skirt. Even the sheerest summer gowns
have their pouch pockets just
make-believe pockets, for even the
smallest "hanky" would spoil the ef
fect of the "pouches."
The band of your sports hats sim
ply must match your skirt or your
blouse or your hose. You can achieve
this end by buying a half dozen hat
bands at the ribbon counter. They
are ready-made and not very expen
sive. The Lady from Philadelphia al
ways carries an all-white kerchief,
but the girl who is right up-to-date
flirts a handkerchief that's bordered
in blue or rose, dull gray or green.

GAY CUBIST COLORS FOR THE
SMALL MAID
A&Sr
She is in Cubist colors, is this lit
tle maid. Her one-piece frock is
orange color handkerchief linen with
yoke of blue linen. The diamond
patches on yoke, sleeves and skirt
are old blue and dull red the Cubist
colors, and the black silk cord at the
waist completes the Cubist scheme
or dream of color.
