woman. One shop on the Avenue de
votes a side window, tucked in be
tween two marble pillars, to rackets,
balls sports shoes and middies. The
blouses, slashed in front and laced,
have sailor collars and cuff-like hems;
they are made of white linen, crepe
do Chine, wash silk and khaki cloth,
the fabric of the soldiers' uniforms,
an attractive tan in color and with
good wearing qualities.
While the whims of fashion are not
as a rule rigidly followed in the
clothes for sports wear, the added
width in skirts is readily accepted. To
be sure, skltrs for walking, golf and
tennis are not extreme, but now meas
ure from two and a half to three yards
around the lower edge. Such fabrics
as pique, plain and in novel stripes
and bars, linen crash, khaki tweed and
herringbone mixtures are shown, in
these skirts, which are short and plain
save for a lap closing or patch pocket?
Hats, too, have a swagger style.
Panamas appear in every conceivable
shape, from slouch to stiff sailor, with
knitted silk bands made like the knit
ted ties the men wear. There are col
lapsible hemp straws and black felts
faced in color, convenient to tuck in
the corner of a bag when leaving town
for a week-end. Broad-brimmed sail
ors of a printed linen in two-toned ef
fects and in natural linen faced with
blue are also smart, while rolling
brimmed sailors of grass straw in pur
ple and white, and black and white
lend variety to the styles; or you may
have a bonny tam-o'-shanter loosely
knitted in coarse silk jauntily tilted to
one side, like the Scotchman wears
on the heath.
As in other seasons, the gloves are
the heavy mannish type of tan leather
or white buckskin to protect the hand
- of the fair wearer, but belts are a real
innovation as they appear in brilliant
stripes and checks, knitted to match
the bands on the hats, or in black or
colored leather finished with a large
buckle at the front.
Fancy shoes have grown so com
mon,, it is small wonder we find a few
novelties among the models for sports
wear. Perhaps the most striking is a
white buckskin tie with rubber sole
and Btripings of green , or red leather,
which serve as trimming, as well as
a stay for the flexible buckskin. One
nouso is featuring a white buckskin
shoe, the sole of white leather, treated
in such a manner that it retains its
whiteness in spite of wear. These
heelless ties and shoes are shown for
tennis, while walking ties and shoes
.have heels about an inch high.
Along with the other garments, rid
ing habits are receiving considerable
attention. The new trauser and leg
ging In one, laced in front or buttoned
at the side, is a style adopted by young
girls, while older women favor the
skirt for country wear, finished with a
lap seam front and back with straps
underneath for cross-saddle riding.
Riding coats show the .conventional
notch collar, close body and flaring
skirt, and the habits are made in whip
cord, covert cloth, tweed and khaki
cloth, while tan leather boots or leg
gings and ties -are the approved mode
of dressing the feet. The tendency in
hats seems to point to the mannish
sailor with a,fancy band; gloves are
the. gauntlet and neckwear the stock,
usually pique or duck, in some cases
embroidered with large green polka
dots or gay purple fleur-de-lis, If you
chance to be ally.
It is interesting to note the studied
carelessness of the clothes of the
woman who loves sports for. sports
sake. Two notables of New York so
ciety appeared at a golf club early in
the season and I heard an idler on the
broad veranda remark as thev took
the bunkers that they certainly knew
now to wear their clothes. The very
suitability of the garments made them
stylish. With her fair skin tanned a
delicate brown, the first was a perfect
picture of what a robust American girl
should be in her Norfolk coat of tan
chinchilla, with blue linen skirt show
ing below, sailor hat of the same ma
terial, tan gloves and low-heeled ties
of tan leather. The other woman
trifle older, wore a white linen blouse
with collar turned low, a striped pique
skirt with large patch pockets and
Panama hat with a checkered band of
knitted silk that carried out the con
trast of her white buckskin shoos
stayed with black leather, and her
black leather belt. There was nothing
to hamper their freedom, not a surplus
Irill or button, but every detail of the
costumes Bhowed the thought that had

a way to gain legal possession of the

PUNCH BOARD 1ST GO
JONES TO TUCSON
TUCSON, May 5. Dicing'
for cigars and other merchan-;
dise also may be banned as
gambling by County Attorney
Hilzinger as a result ot the
investigation which he is now
making. He announced yes
terday after correspondence
with Attorney General Jones,
that punch boards hereafter
would be considered as gam
bling devices. In accordance!
with that decision, Sheriff;
Forbes has published a notice j
that arrests will follow fur- j
ther use of the boards. I
"Punch boards recently
were put out of business m
Phoenix," said Mr. Hilzinger. '
"The primary reason tor stop
ping them here, is that they
are gambling devices and con
sequently illegal, it may have
been at trfe start that they
were merely devices to stim
ulate trade, but the game has
grown to such an extent that
'it bids fair to swallow trade.
"It has been developed to
the point of interference with
legitimate trade. There is no
limit to the sort of merchan
dise offered as prizes. They
dispose of jewelry by this
means, yet they pay no jewel
er's license. Candy is so dis
posed of, yet they pay no li
cense as confectioners.
"Protests have been made
to me about it. I am looking
'into the matter further."
Girls Are Lurea
The punch boards were not in evi
dence at- the various tobacco.stores up
and down Congress street' and Stone
avenue this morning. This has be
come one of the most popular pastimes
with those who have a minute, or an
hour in which to loaf. Even girls have
been lured by the spirit of chance.
A punch board manufacturer former
ly kept an agent in Tucson. Many
traveling agents came through the
state. .Many of the boards used in this
city are manufactured in Los Angeles,
although it is understood. that Los An
geles has .prohibited their use. . The
plan by which the law, is avoided there
is to sell post cards at ten cents each
and give a punch free with each card.
Not infrequently the customer does not
care to take the post card.
Frank Howe, of the Howe Bros,
news and fruit stand, in thefpostoffice
building said this morning that they
would discontinue the use of the board
rather than have a fight about it.
But they will first confer with the
county attorney. They operate a big
board of the post card variety.
Howe Brothers also manufactured
some boards with, candy as- prizes and
distributed them about the city.
"We are candy wholesalers," said
Howe, "and took care to put $30 worth
of value on every $30 board put out."
Jewelry to Mackintoshes
Jewelry is "the class of prizes most
generally offered, although everything
from pipes to mackintoshes has been.
offered in season. One board on
which was offered an automobile went
so slow that it was recalled. Ten cents
per punch is the standard price, but in
the automobile instance, the price was
blind, being the amount of the number
punched, and which as the veriest tyro
at punching knows, is --concealed, be
neath a seal. It ran. into dollars.
About a year and a half ago there
was an effort made by the city to stop
the use of dice, but, upon the plea that
it was a '.'stimulus to trade," the prac
tice was allowed to continue.
It is said that the profits on a
board will run 200 per cent or more to

BOUT TKIT HOUSE
' MMUM ILL
The house appropriation bill pre
sented yesterday was a disappoint
ment to those who had been led to
believe that it would propose a' sweep
ing retrenchment in state expenses.
Many had been misled as to statements
concerning the amount the bill car
ried. Nobody appeared to Itnow pre
cisely what that amount was but it
was' variously estimated by men who
had assisted in the construction of the
bill, at from $1,200,000 to $1,500,000.
In the light of the bill itself the diffei
ence between these estimates is quite
unimportant. The total amount itself,
whatever it may be, is unimportant so
far as concerns any serious attempt
to reduce the expenditures of the state.
It was developed in the early con
sideration of the bill yesterday that
many of the so-called "statutory appro
priations" had been for some purpose
omitted from the bill. The statutory
appropriations are those which are
continuing in the absence of any fur
ther legislation. For instance; the
house bill contains no appropriation
for the tax( commission, and in the
absence of any appropriation, the ex
penses of the commission for the next
two years will be whatever the com
mission chooses to make them. The
blue - sky is the limit. There ig no
restriction in the act creating the com
mission as to clerks and stenographers
and their salaries. The law, of course,
pretends to limit the . Expenses of the
commission, traveling and other ex
penses by the vague word, "neces
House bill 168 of the late regular
session included sub-sections provid
ing for the' tax commission and that
provision4 was certainly generous
enough, $37,900 for the next two years.
This isonIy one of the many "stat
utory appropriations" with which the
fuouse committee on appropriations
elected not to interfere. As to how
oiuch. all of them will total- nobody to
whom questions were put concerning
them seemed to know. That is, after
a ten days' investigation leading up
to the completion of the so-called gen
eral appropriation bill, nobody could
furnish information . as to the proba
ble state ' expenses for the next two
years. 1 - '
This much was' apparent: compar
ing the nearly thirty items gone over
in the committee of the whole house,
all relating to salaries and expenses,
aggregating $197,400, there had been
'ao reduction. "Several of the items
.vere. larger than in the general appro
priation Dill of two years ago and
nigher than the corresponding Items
of the ill-fated Ja'ouse bill 168. Several
of the -items were increased in the
committee of the, whole and it was ob
servable: that on every division the
ine-up' was the same.
" It is true that there is a saving in
the free text book item of $300,000
and that provisions for buildings were
held down to less than $75,000. But
for an actual saving in the cost of ad
ministartion, nothing is contemplated.
It is, of course, certain that no such
bill ,as. this is likely to be when the
house gets through with it or any bill
remotely resembling it will pass the
senate but it is a matter of regret
'.hat the bill which seems to find favor
in the house indicates that there will
be a serious struggle between the two
branches of the legislature before an
appropriation bill is evolved.
TOKIO, May 5.: The war between
