FASHIONS SET AT RECEPTION
TO BILLY SUNDAY
l'IARY, CA35 CANFIELD'
By Betty Brdwn
The first social function in New
York for Billy and Ma Sunday- was a
reception given by Mrs. Charles B.
Many fashionably attired society
Among the most striking and suit
able costumes worn "was that of Miss
Mary Cass Cornfield,
More than one head turned in
passing another smart little lady.
The feature of the suit that caused
the passerby to give it a second
glance was the long, straight cape,
which hung from the line under the
cellar in the back, almost to the
hem of the skirt
This was no all-enveloping cape,
for the smart thing about it was that
it hung with some fullness entirely
in the back, not even shielding the
arms from view.
