There is no reason, they argue, why
the 'iien of San Francisco should not
be just as noted as their women folk for
faultless adherence to the dictates ol
style and devotion to the rules of al
ways being "correct." It goes without
saying that visitors in 1915 will return
to their homes with reminiscences ol
the charm and chicness of San Fran
cisco's women; shall they not carrj
with them also an Indelible impressior
of a city whose men epitomize th«
grace of the boulevards of Paris; tht
debonaire swagger of Vienna and the
faultioss grooming of Pall Mall, toppec

The Merchant Tailors' associatior
says ii must be so—that the men must
prepare for the world's inspection twc
3 - ears hence, and that this spring thej
must have their first lesson in the ex
actitudes of dress.
CAMPAIGN OF EDI CATION
Thus was inspired the exclusivelj
masculine fashion show which is tc
precede the Easter season and begin its
work of teaching both the merest man
and the fanciest that he can get just
as much «njoyment out of the extrava
gancies of fashion as can the city's
maids and matrons.
Many wonderful mysteries to the
average man will be unfolded by the
show, which will be staged in the win
dows of shops where masculine attire
is made or sold, beginning two weeks
before Easter blooms.
For instance, there is the "smooth
face" suit, of which every man who
aspires to associate with his fellows
upon a basis of equality must have a
least three in his wardrobe. This
'smooth face" suit is one of the. posi
tive dictates of the coming season. The
Fashion Show will teach all men jus
what a smooth face suit is and how to
Advance information has it that this
new creation of masculine fashion is a
wonderful sartorial achievement of
trousers that crease at the "left and
right of center," vests that are longer
at the sides than in front: coats that
■f have button holes in the lining, so they
may be buttoned into every curve of
the masculine form.
.But this is only one of the new Pa
risian fancies in dress for the sterner
• that the Fashion Show will intro-
It is in the little things that have
to do with masculine garb that the
fashion show will dispose of a long
felt want, say the tailors.
Take spats, for instance. Spats are
nor. generally worn in San Francisco
yet there is no more important item
in the well dressed man's grooming
Bay the trilors, tHan the festive spat
Every suit that is built for man should
have Its special spat. There is the
morning spat, the noon spat and the
afternoon spat. They may be Of dif

Lot of Miss Browns
Got Smiths on the Run
"Little Miss Brown," who is refused a hotel room by grouchy clerk because
she is alone and without money.
Call Office Thronged in
Quest of Free Thea
Several of the unmarried, feminine
I Browns, whose names appear in the
'city directory and the telephone book
;' swept down on the subscription clerks
at The Call office yesterday In a rush
!to obtain seats at the Cort theater for
j next Monday or Tuesday nights' per-
I formance of "'Little Miss Brown."
In yesterday morning's Issue an
i r.ouncement was made that two seats
. for "Little Miss Brown" for either of
i those nights would be given every
' Miss Brown who is , now, or will be
i before those dates a subscriber to The
; ('all. No age limit Is drawn. Any Miss
i Brown who Is on the subscription
! books of The Call can get two seats
' for what eastern audiences have called
1 the funniest farce of the season.
The Misses Brown may live in San
Francisco or Honolulu; the only re
quirements are the name, the prefix
"Mies" and a receipt for at least a
I month's subscription to The Call.
"Little Miss Brown" is coming to
! San Francisco with a four months' run
at William A. Brady's Forty-eighth
street theater to its credit. It moved
Ito Philadelphia for a long stay and
i comes to this city after a series of
j successes in St. Louis, Denver and other
; large cities.
From the advance press notices It
j would appear that a big treat is in
I store for The Call's Brown family.
There are no questions asked, no
' problems presented, no ethical ques
'■ tions to be soJve'd. It is all clean,
three different sizes of buttons at the
waist, while the proper suits for other
events of the evening must have but
tons all of one size.
Many intricate problems like this are
to be disposed of as one of the first
steps to the education of men who de
sire to perfect their outward ap
pearance for all occasions.
According to the latest literature of
the National Association of Merchant
Tailors five suits a day must be worn
by the man who desires to impress his
fellows with his acquaintance with
"what's right" In the way of clothes.
So far as is known there is no San
Franciscan who considers it impera
tive to change his apparel five times a
day, but it is predicted there will be
thousands after the fashion show has
There must be the negligee for break
fast —a combination smoking-jacket
bathrobe-dinner-coat effect, which will
be displayed here for the first time
during the memorable week.
CUTAWAY COMES BACK
Then there Is the morning suit,
adaptable to countless new patterns
and weaves of twill and serge, with i
both checker board and hairline pat- >
terns entirely new this spring. The j
lunch suit—no man may lunch in his
regular morning garb—is followed by
the afternoon suit in which the long j
missed striped trousers will contrast |
with the black cutaway coat so little
affected now on the west coast. Then
the dinner coat, which is modeled after i
new lines, and the proper evening
dress, for different occasions.
Spring colors are exceptionally fancy,
and, it Is said, a fashion show is neces
sary properly to prepare the femininity
of the city for the surprises that will
be sprung on them Easter morning.
Mere grays and London smokes are
quite conservative in comparison to the
tawny yellow shades, the tiger spot
tings and the zebra stripings.
The general tendency of the cut is a
little "more so" than during the clos
ing months of 1912, which means that
the up to the minute suit, ordered from
the fashion show's display, will be
molded to the form quite the same as
a dressmaker molds lines. There are
certain variations allowable, such as
box backs with "roller" fronts, but
these are not advocated by the ma
jority of the tailors-.
MAKE IT ACHIEVEMENT
It is not so much an effort to Intro
duce the new styles which Is the men'i
show foundation as a beginning in the
education of the men folk in the pos
sibilities of dress. San Francisco men
always are well groomed, say the tail
ors, but they should make dressing an
art, an achievement, just as much as
do the women. If the fashion show
gives them the right inspirations, the
1915 visitors will have marvelous tales
of the city's masculinity to tell the
folks at home when they go back.
The date for the display, which will
be elaborate and costly, embracing
practically every men's clothing store
in the city, has been fixed for the sec
ond week before Easter. J. M. Heffer
nan of Kelleher & Browne is chairman
of the committee making the arrange

DORR ON STAND
Stockton Man Tells How He
Shot Lynn Manufac
turer in Auto
Drove Up and Down Boule
vards With Body Propped
in Car, He Says
SALEM, Mass., Feb. 26.—For half an
hour after he had killed George E.
Marsh, an aged manufacturer of Lynn,
William A. Dorr drove up and down the
Lynn boulevards with tbe body propped
up beside him in the single seat of his
runabout. Other automobiles passed
him, but he attracted no attention.
This Is part of the remarkable story
Dorr told today before the jury before
which he is being tried for murder.
The state asserts that Marsh was
murdered in order that the defendant
might profit indirectly by Marsh's death
through a trust fund which he thought
would go to his aunt, Miss Orpha Marsh,
with whopiihe lived in Stockton, Cal.
He told in detail of his life In Stock
ton. His aunt's property was involved,
he said; and believing it was being
mismanaged decided to come east and
see privately Mr. Marsh, who was trus
tee of the funds.
SHOT IX SCTFFIjE. HE SAYS
While he and Marsh were driving in
an automobile he declared Marsh made
an Insinuating remark about Miss
Marsh. They quarreled and Dorr
started to leave the car. Marsh tried to
stop him and was shot In the scuffle.
On cross examination Dorr stuck to
his story. Replying to auestions of the
district attorney, he said:
"After the shooting I wrapped the
body of Marsh in a blanket, put his hat
on his head and started toward Lynn.
I drove the machine up md down *he
boulevard several times, undecided
what to do. Several times I had to
stop the machine to prop up the body,
which had toppled over."
"What prompted you to keep riding
around with the body In the machine?"
the district attorney asked.
DORR DEFENSE ENDS
"Fear," said Dorr.
Eventually, he said, he left the body
on the marshes, where It was found
the next day.
"While he \va? disposing of It, Dorr
said, an automobile passed and the oc
cupants called out to him, but he did
The defense rested its case tonight.
Tomorrow the state will call two or
three witnesses in rebuttal.

Ladies Adopt 1915 Seal
Design Is Exceptional
Mrs. Lucia K. Mathews
Donates Art Work
A seal of artistic design, emblematic
of Columbus opening , the Gatun gates
to the commerce of the world, was
formally adopted by the women's board
of the Panama-Pacific international ex
position yesterday. The design, which
is considered exceptionally beautiful
and expressive, was executed by Mrs.
Lucia K. Mathews, who is widely
known as an artist of ability. The
thought, time and work the seal rep
resents Is her gift toward the efforts
California women are making in be
half of the great world's fair.
When the question of the seal was
first considered by the board, there
were some who advocated a state wide
competition. The difficulties Involved
in such a scheme, however, brought
the unanimous decision that the better
plan would be to obtain the co-opera
tion of a woman artist. Mrs. Mathews
accepted the task enthusiastically, ask
ing only that her efforts be freely
criticised until she had put into the
seal exactly the message the women
of the ptate were willing to send broad
cast. She made but the one design,
which immediately received hearty ap

will be extensively used in the activi

PORTLAND. Peb; 26—News from
Washington to the effect that there has
been an open break between Unite 1
