IDAH McGLONE GIBSON TELLS EXACTLY WHAT
SPRING FASHIONS WILL BE
BY IDAH McGLONE GIBSON
New York, March 30. After see
ing the wonderful Kurzman exhibit
of importations, I can make these
authoritative statements:
Sailor hats will be much wider of
rim and higher of crown than those
RHBbt 1 B
High shoes for evening wear are
the latest New York fad. They are
buttoned at each side, and finished at
the top with a bracelet, which is fas
tened to the top of the shoe at the
back. x
of last year, a new sailor which rolls
at one side promising to be popular.
" Shoes and hats must match
gowns; stockings may match or aid
the general effect
Parasols will be carried more this
summer than at any time since the
mid-Victorian era.
The crownB of the hats go soaring
many of them being over 12 inches
high.
Dresses for the street are at most
only six inches from the ground.
Skirts are much narrower than
they were last year.
Mqch plaiting" is used in skirts.
The most popular materials for
street and day gowns are serge,
georgette crepe, satin and Jersey.
Georgette1 crepe is combined with
each of the other materials and
sometimes you see it with both serge
and satin in- the same costume.
Positively no high collars! After
noon gowns are so decollete that you
can scarcely tell whether they were
for night or day wear except that
they have long sleeves.
Nature colors the soft red, blue,
purple and yellow you see in summer
skies; the green of the trees and the
grass and sand color will be the fa
vorites.
Black with white polka dots for
those who like them.
Black combined with bright colors
is perhaps the most popular of all
combinations in gowns.

DREAM MARRIAGE ENDED
Dr. Raymond R, P. Sweany's
"dream marriage" to Hazel McFall
was ended yesterday . when Judge
Thomson granted him a decree of
annulment. Sweany is now on his
way to his home town, Canton, 0.,
to marry te sweetheart of his boy
hood days.
Sweany, who is heir to $75,000,
told a queer story. He said that he
met Hazel while rooming at her
mother's home, 1511 Adams. There
was no courtship. But Hazel told
him he was the first man she ever ,
liked. Later he discovered she was W
the divorced wife of W. F. Brenner,
saloonkeeper. One day, he says, Ha
zel's father invited him to have a
drink. When he came to his senses
one week later he was a married
man.
