6reat Array of New Styles for Wom

For the last two years footwear has
itoyed an increasingly prominent role
In the mode, growing ever more elab

ford shoe with a medium heel, or the
difhtly more elaborate type of shoe
a low street shoe of black patent
leather and gray suede, with elastic
Inserts and high patent leather Span
ish heels. Another walking shoe of
tbe more conservative type Is an ox
ford of suede and patent leather witli
a broad, low, suede-covered heel.
Hels of varied types are seen among
street shoes, including the leather
i heel, very broad and low, the
' llliar Cuban heel, nnd finally the
' rider Spanish heel, which Is a
action lower than the French heel.

suede or patent leather with steel
ekies are the favorites of the wom
who seeks distinction In dress, and
V bid fair to displace the ubiquitous
strapped sandal. These slippers of
distinction seek the softer tones of
suede to harmonize with frocks of
the fashionable colors. Gray, beige
and black are set off with steel
buckles, while brown suede Is com
bined with a buckle of bronzed steel.
Black patent leather Is extremely
anart for the afternoon, particularly
Then it is simply made and set off
with a colonial buckle, or an orna

occasions Is Invariably accompanied

the edge of the skirt and armholes and
ta clusters of three dotting the surface
f the frock all over. A narrow black

The cape-back Is well liked this
season, nnd Is frequently employed as
a means of diversifying the simple
straight dress, observes a fashion
authority. In afternoon and evening
frocks the cape-back sleeve Is often
seen. It Is worked out by means of
a straight piece of lace, or the fabric
from which the dress Is made, that
goes across the back In the form of a
cape and extends along the length
of the arms to the wrists where It

dress is dead white and the trimming

Linen tapes have been widely taken
up by dressmakers and milliners, but
their use was confined to wash dresses

signer conceived the Idea of mnklng
a lacework of fine linen tape and us

NOVELTY WOOLEN FOR COATS
Distinct Emphasis Placed on Sport
Idea; Fancy Backs Much In EvI-

Novelties in coatings constitute a
large proportion of the fall woolens,
as shown this far, and In all the lines
which Include fancy cloths there Is a
distinct emphasis on the sport Idea.
Fancy backs, whether they are plaid,
block checked, or solid, are much In
evidence, and for topcoats and sport
capes there are the largest of plaids.

CHARLES E. "BETTER" STUMP, THE
REGULAR TRAVELING CORRE-
. SPONDENT FQR THE BROAD AX,
SEEMINGLY DELIGHTS TO HANG
AROUND IN TEXAS, BUT AT LAST,
HE HAS STARTED ON HIS WAY TO
LOS ANGELES, CAL.
Austin, Texas. This is the town
where lives the Rev. Dr. L. L. Camp
bell, a Baptist preacher, and I am told
that he is called a traitor, and a man
who would see any member of his
race knocked out of the box if it would
please a white man. I am not dishing
this out for truth, but the people of
this place say all kinds of things about
him and he is called everything but
a child of God.
In my last letter, I asked you to
pray for me, and 1 am sure that you
have been praying for I am still on
earth and in Texas at that, but if you
want to reach me with a letter just
send it care Mr. N. G. Pitts, 2355 East
9th street, Los Angeles, Cal., for I
expect to be somewhere near that
point when you read this letter, and
from there 1 will make a trip to Chi

Speaking of Chicago, I am informed
that the people arc just getting ready
to put the big pot in the little one
when the young people come there
next August to the National Congress
of the Alien Christian Endeavor
League, of which Dr. S. S. Morris is
the big secretary and chief. The local
committee is at work and every step
ays success. It will be the largest
convention of young people ever held
in the city of Chicago. They will be
there in large numbers from all parts
of the country. The summer schools
will be out, and the teachers will wend
their way to Chicago to be in this
great school of methods looking to
tile elevation of the young people.
Connected with this meeting there will
be a business feature, a social feature,
an educational feature and a religious
feature, and if you are not there you
will nii.-s much.
But let mc now call your attention
to the fact that I am in Texas, and at
tended the Grand Lodge of Knights
of Pythias in San Antonio, Texas, last
week, and they were there as thick as
fleas in the back of some dogs, and it
was a business session from start to
finish. 1 would first tell you about
some of the visitors leaving outimy-
sclf. Supreme Chancellor S. V. Green,
of New Orleans accompanied by
his wife. He was the chief visitor to
the grand lodge and she was the queen
of honor at the grand court of Calan-
thc. and both gave good instructions
and advice to our people.
Of course, you know Supreme Chan
cellor S. V. Green, for he is the man
who stands for right, and I believe he
would suspend his daddy from the or
der if lie failed to comply with the
law. and he .now has Missouri outside
looking in, but I have told you about
that before. He has many friends.
There was Supreme Attorney S. A.
T. Watkins. and he was from way up
yonder in Chicago, and was brave
cnouch to come down here in Texas,
and believe me when I tell you he
sooke riuht out in church. He did not
come down with advice, "Make friends
with the white folks" but told his
oeoole to be friendly with all people.
when it can be done in a manly way,
and in all times stand erect. The time
has passed he contended that the
Netrro should go with a down hung
head and an aching heart God has
not wanted man to fear him, but love
Him and such should be the case with
all other men. They should not ex
pect more than God. "Obey the law,
and do right, and fear no human be
ing." Attorney Watkins is a southern man
and he knows conditions. He is a
good lawyer and is serving his peo
ple well in that capacity. If you want
to sec him get busy, just let the in
formation reach him that the white
man is trying to legally rob his people
of some of their rights, and you will
find a real busy man.

She is a Jalkcr, and a worker also, and
it is a rare thing that you find such

proud of her.
The Grand Lodge and the Grand
Court of Texas have in cold cash very
near half million dollars, and just let
them put in that Pythian Temple in
Dallas, valued at $250,000, and you
will find them over half million dol

They added over 8,000 members to
the order during the past 12 months,
and they. arc constantly making other
improvements. They were able to go
to the rescue of Paul Quinn college a
few days ago and made a loan of
$20,000 to that Institution, and they
have let the United States Govern
ment have some money. We arc com
ing. Mrs. A. D. Key, is the presiding
officer of the Court of Calanthc, and
there arc others that time will not
permit me to mention. For I was the
guest of Dr. S." J. Johnson, who is
getting ready to take up his abode in
Washington in 1924, for that is the
year he is going to be elected Secre
tary of Church Extension to succeed
that great giant. Dr. B. F. Watson.
Dr. Johnson is just the man for the
place. Here 1 am writing this letter
from the home of a prospective bish
op, Dr. S. D. Butler, the man who is
just doing things. I shall say more
about him later.
I must here leave off talking about
Knights of Pythias to talk about a
book, "Unsung Heroes," by Mrs.
Elizabeth Ross Haynes, of Washing
ton, D. G, published by Du Bois and
Dill, of New York. This book came
from the press in 1921, but it has just
been brought to my attention, and 1
wish that it could.be placed in the
hands of every boy and girl of this
race of ours. It is indeed an inspira
tion, for it tells of the struggles of
men and women of our race, who have
Mrs. Hayes in her writing does not
make any attempt to show how well
she has mastered the big wards in
the language, but she tells the story in
a style and manner that will interest
the young mind and at the same time
the otdcr minds. She tells the story
of the life of Frederick Douglass,
Booker T. Washington, Paul Lau
rence Dunbar, Harriet Tubman, Alex
ander S. Pushkin, Blanche K. Bruce,
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Benjamin
Banneker, Phyllis Wheatley, Tous
saint L'Ouverture, Josiah Henson, Sou
journer Truth, Crispus Attuck, Alex
andre Dumas, Paul Cuffc, Alexander
Crummell. John Mercer Langston.
These will inspire any boy or girl who
will take the time to read it. If you
once commence you will not stop un
til yo'u shall have finished and then
you will find yourself wishing for
more. In the foreword the author
uses this beautiful quotation:
"Go on and up! Our souls and eyes
Shall follow thy continuous rise;
Our cars shall list thy story
From bards who from thy root shall
And proudly tune their lyres to sing
Of Ethiopia's glory."
We are now getting ready for the
trip to the National Baptist conven
tion, and I hope to tell you about the
National Baptist Sunday School and
B. Y. P. U. Congress which will be
in New Orleans while you read this
letter, and I will leave from there for
Los Angeles to see how they arc go
ing to entertain us next fall.

Sounds Travel -Farthest In Darkness.
Sounds can generally be heard much
farther by night than oy day; some
times ten or even twenty times as far.
One reason la that the air at "alght
contains, as a rule, few eddies and
other local dlstrubances, such as break
up the sound waves by day. More
over, on calm, clear nights the verti
cal distribution of temperature near
the earth Is often the reverse of that
occurring by day, and has the effect
of bending the sound waves downward
instead of upward.

SHAWL PARIS FAD
Spanish Shoulder Decoration At
tracts Attention to Gown.
Noted Dressmaker Stresses the Nip
ponese Note in Exquisite Out
fit for Formal Wear.
The Spanish shawl has brought oat
an entirely new type of evening dress
which is nothing more than a simple
crepe de chine, low neck, sleeveless
robe which matches the shawl In col
or. There Is nothing more lovely be
ing worn In all Purls at the present
time, says a writer In the New York
TrlbJne, than this type of dress, a fad,
as It were, among chic women who
wish to attract attention by their
striking clothes. When wearing such
a costume one looks like a brilliant'
hued tropical flower or a bird of rare
Recently nt a fashionable restaurant
in Paris a charming outfit of this kind
was seen. A beautiful red-haired girl
wore a vivid empire green crepe dc
chine dress and Spanish shawl. The
shawl was embroidered In enormous
peonies In dahlia shudes, covering a
range from the beautiful dahlia pinks
down to a deep clematis blue. This.
In contrast with the vivid green of
the foundation, made Indeed a bril
liant spot of color. The woman wore
a chain of silver bead, braided
through her auburn tresses.
Another restaurant gown In burnt
orange crepe de chine had an ex
tremely low neck, sleeveless bodice
and draped skirt It was entirely
ivlthnut trimming nnd had a match
ing Spanish shawl, this embroidered
In the most vivid colors with deep
fringe hnvlng knotted ends.
It Is to Paul Poiret, the eccentric
though admittedly talented Paris man
dressmaker, that fashion owes some
3f her more remarkable turns. Just
now M. Polret distinguishes himself
oy emphnsizing the Japanese note.
At a recent ball given in connection
nith the dressmaking trade of Paris
a Polret mannequin wore an exquisite
dress decidedly Japanese In effect,
ivltti her coiffeur a la Japanolse and
her face made up to resemble a Jap
anese masque. The dress was de
veloped fropi blnck satin, silver fringe
and a gorgeous silver brocade, on
which there were Japanese flowers In
nattier blue and rose.
DRESS AND CHIC 0VERBL0USE
The feature of this charming out
fit, worn by a popular film favorite, is
the pointed overblouse. Note the but
tons under the arm.
SMART RIBBON BOWS ON HATS
Colored Strands Supply Simple and
Attractive Trimming; Black
Wide ribbon made Into loops and
ends or tied In very smart bows of
good size. Is making the trimming for
many of the hats shown for Immedi
ate wear. Black shapes particularly
show the preference for the bow trim
and models of hair, malines braid and,
of course, mlian, are used for this pur
pose. In using these wide ribbons it is no
ticed that the hnnging end Is still em
ployed, in some cases , the ribbon
reaching almost to the waistline at
the side. Many of tbe large shapes
In poke effect that have the new cut
off back brim, employ the ribbon to
fill in this space with a long soft bow
reaching far out on each side. 'In
other cases, when a shape is raised
slightly at the back, the ribbon loop
or bow may be placed on the under
side of the brim well toward tbe back.
In contrast with the brigbt-hued um
brellas of tbe moment Is a new de
mure umbrella in fashionable gray
tones. Tbe cover is of dove gray silk
and the handle is of gray bakelite
hand-etched in black and white.
Frame, tips and ferrule, are of silver.
Hothlng could be daintier or more
elegant than this silver-trimmed gray

SOME CLEVER LINEN FROCKS
Fabric Featured in Garments for
Young Girls; Chambray Also
Linens are featured In frocks for
children and young girls. One de
signed for a girl of twelve or fourteen
years. Is especially charming because
d Its color combination and Interest
ing trimminz. The dress was shown
in a light, dull green piped in henna,
and the blocks of embroidery on
sleeves nnd skirt, both back and front,
were done In several shudes of green,
dull red, yellow, nnd touches of black
'The dress is a perfectly straight,
smock-like affair, and could be made
by any home dressmaker. Any gar
ments that are handmade or hand-embroidered
must of necessity be ex
pensive if bought ready-to-wear. The
woman who Is skillful with her needle
is fortunate when handmade and hand
decorated garments are the vogue, be
cause simplicity Is almost always the
dominant note in the designing of
these garments, so that time and pa

featured a straight front intl Nick
panel with little strap bei1- r either

pipings In rose. Blocks of embroidery

instead of the side front -'
Brown chambray fashioned another
dainty little frock, cuffs, collar and
pockets were of white organdie em
broidered In brown and red wool yarn.
The pockets were criss-crossed all
over, while a mere line of embroidery
finished collar and cuffs.
SIMPLE LINES FOR DRESSES
Little Frock That Features Smocking
at. the Waist 'and Yoke Ap
peals to All.
The youthful frock, developed on
lines of simplicity, gives marked
prominence to novelty fabrics as a
rule. Both novel and wearable ma
terials those that will appeal to
"mother' from the standpoint of
wcnmbility and to the child on account
of their attractiveness are seen In a
simple little frock that features smock
ing at the waist and yoke from which
the fullness of the dress Is derived
One New York firm has bad particu
lar success with imported voile this
season, voile so sheer and silky as to
closely ally It with georgette. Bright
colorings, such as orange, rose and
green, are among the favored shades
while pale yellow and white assume
a hand-made appearance with their
tuckings and frilllngs to embellish tbe
skirt, neck and sleeves.
Marvel silk, one of the pongee fam
ily, though with more advantages in
the way of being Immune to water
spots, has found a ready market. It
Is stated, and Is very comfortable for
the afternoons In the little smocked
effect done with bright silk floss
stitching. In a natural coloring or dyed
shades a choice can -be made.
For ready turnover, the frock of rat
ine has proved particularly success
ful, printed In large block designs of
gingham colorings. Circular lines,
rather than fullness, are well suited
to this dress, on account of the weight
of the fabric. Another little style,
much In favor. Is a tissue gingham, n
materinl of gingham simulation, but
not of finer weave. '
Wool embroidery continues to be
the vogue. A black hat of rather large
brim was decorated with a life-size
parrot In gay colors. It was embroid
ered on the left side ot tbe crown to
partly decorate both crown and brim.
Just simple tassels are seen on many
sport bats. A tassel of white wool Is
allowed to fall off tbe left side of the
