The Fifth Avenue woman's tailor, the
head of the department store section de

so-called exclusive shops agree that the
days of the Flapper are numbered. The
longer skirt, fashion's decree for the up-
to-date styles, has sounded her doom.
they say. With her back against the just-below-the-knee
skirt, they will tell you,
she is waging gamely and stubbornly a
losing battle against the effacement of her
jaunty recklessness, the loss of her pi
quant, convention-defying, elf-sufiicient
personality. All the signs and portents
are that the longer skirt will be the vic
tor. Her manners, prophesy the modUters,
will change with her fall gowns.
One salesman, after a Flapper had vain
ly asked the other day for a gown shorter
than any of those shown to her, and had
departed with her purchase in a mood
which indicated that she thought the
whole world was in conspiracy against

or have it shortened, but a month from

"will join in the 'attic trunks and chests

"Dress has invariably influenced so
cial manners, customs and speech.
"Much misinformation" has been spread
concerning the genesis of the term Flap
per and the person to whom it was orig
inally applied. The general impression
seems to be that both the term and the
type it describes were first of all out
growths of the World War, that both sig
nified in the first instance a girl who en
gaged in vtar work and thereby, tasting
the sweets of independence of and equal
ity with -man, became a destroyer of es
tablished custom and the sole arbiter of
her own destiny.
"As a matter of fact, the Flapper, as
we know her today, is the complete anti
thesis of her on whom the title was first
bestowed. In 1910 American visitors to
England heard of the Flapper. Those who
inquired into the meaning of this unusual
and previously unheard appellation found
that it designated a girl, varying in age
from 14 to 17, who had not yet come out.
who rode in the side car of a motorcycle,
and because she had not reached the de
butante stage of doing her hair ou the top
of her head wore it hanging down her
back, braided or Iooe, so that it flapped
in the wind. Hence the name Flapper.
This girl was in type anthing but radical
or unusual. In speech, manners and dress
she was modest, unassuming and refined.
the personification of a well-bred, well-
reared, well-educated daughter in a lam-
ily of means and social position . She
wore her skirts half way to her ankles.
SRe was thoroughly conventional.
The Original Flapper.
"She had none of the assurance, none
of the independence, none of the im
pudence, none of the defiance of social
laws, none of the slang, none of the
freedom with those of the opposite sex,
none of the scorn for parental advice,
none of the derision for rcpectahility,
none of the daring in dress, none of the
imperviousness to criticism which have
made the American flapper a bj word.
"But there was a war metamorphosis
f the title. With woman's entry as
an active ally into the struggle against
nne-nower world domination, she

She shed the greater part of her femi- WORLD UNDER JOHN
ninity but retained her womanhood.; ROBINSON'S BIG TOPS
She went into postwar life with a chip
on her shoulder. She toot her flap
perdom with her, her short skirt and
her bobbed hair. She refused to sur
render her war-conferred freedom.
The war flapper became a leader, a
standard bearer for girlhood and young
womanhood. But among those who fol
lowed her example were many of the
ignorant, the extremists and those who,
just graduating from grammar or high
school, had not been through her ex
periences, these mistook liberty for li
cense. The dress designers and makers,
quick to catch the trend of the change
in woman's outlook on life, catered to
the extremists, so that, willy-nill), the
conservatives were forced to accept
what stvle dictated or be out of fashion.
Graduation no longer meant long
dresses and the assumption of the out
ward semblance of the "grown up-'
Moreover, matrons and their unmarried
sisters, seeking to lull the outward
signs of the advance of age,' found
the flapper's code of dress, found in
conduct an outlet for the pent-up re
pressions of long skirted dignity.
"Thundrrings from the pulpits of all
sects and denominations, edicts of
school boards, prohibitory rules of de
partment stores resolutions of self-constituted
censors of public morals and
parental warnings have failed to turn
the flapper from her own definite
speech, , dress and manners. She has
defied them all, opposition serving only
to spur her to further adventures in
living her own life in her own way.
Faces Fashion's Decree.
"But now she is opposed to an irre
sistible force, the force of fashion. She
may defy it; she is def)ing it. But it
goes on the way it has charted, oblivious
of her threats, her tears, her efforts to
circumvent it. She is getting out of
date. AH fashion is a manifestation of
the herd instinct. The herd has started
to follow the new styles, just as it aped
the flapper. She will follow the herd,
"It is not in reason, knowing some
what of what he is at heart and
something of what history and human
exDerience have taught us of the psy
chology of clothes, to make a further
prophecy? With her longer gown the
erstwhile flapper, under whatever name
may be coined to fit her as a new and
distinctive tpe, will still retain her fear
lessness, her engaging frankness her
faith and pride in herself. She will
still breathe the spirit of undjing joulh
and joy in living for itself."
