Of the densely congested sidewalks on
downtown streets on the opening night
of the "Week of Wonderful Windows"
there was none more crowded than those
in front of the show windows of the
The "Passing Show" feature of the
Bidndeis windows, carried out with liv
ing models, furnished one of the most
widely discussed Innovations of the gala
evening's many surprises.
The parade started with a passing In
review of men and women lr, evening at
tire,' and the best efforta of the most
celebrated Parisian dressmakers could
not have produced a more electrifying ef
fect 5ipon the audience. The men were
groomed to the minute and presented the
.1ust-out-of-the-bandbox appearance which
Beau Brummcl was famous for a genera
tion or so ago.
The second section of the show passed
rapidly, disclosing men and women In aft
ernoon dresses and attire, the men with
street clothes and frock costs, ailk hats
The third section was an exhibition of
the most stylish of the outer garments
for men and women and the most am
bitious follower of fashion was perforce
amaied at the remarkable variety aad
charm of the garments shown. '
The fourth section was a display of
tailor-madeg, with men in business suits.
The smart styles of the tailor-made cos
tumes of the women were not to be de
nied, lending that snap and go to this
section of the wonderful parade that lent
a novelty and had the vast crowd outside
on the tiptoe of expectancy.
The fifth section, devoted to sport
suite. eli lted unqualified praise from
the vast throns that was now perfectly
fascinated with the feast of fashion show
ing before their eyes.
The sixth section showed girls' colored
dresses, boys' suits, girls' white dresres
und boys' dressy suits.
The crowning feature of the Brandeis
windows' fashion parade was the wed
ding profession, in which the "bride,"

In l!4 Aft-. Shamp, on a trip east, had
already bought his ticket for the Twen
tieth Century Limited when circum
stances arose which made it deslreable
that he take another train, from which
he would not need to change In getting
to Scranton, Ta. So he changed his
ticket and took another train. The Twen
tieth Century Limited that he would
have taken was wrecked near Cleveland.
In Oreen Hirer Wreck.
That ssme year Mr. Shamp was In the
big union Pacific wreck at Green nivrr.
Wyo., and had a miraculous escape. The
services he rendered In rescue work on
that occasion brought him and three or
four others letters cf commendation from
the leading Union Pacific officials.
Mr. Shamp went to New York this
time to attend an Important conference
of the International I'nlon of Stationary
Firemen, which took place March :4.
Incidentally, he attended the big prie
fight, and he says Wlllard seemed to
have everything his own way. "Me
seemed almost to be afraid to hit Moran
with all his strength," he said.
