ARMORED CAR IN WARFARE
European Armies Have Found It ot
the Greatest Value In Their
Although an engine new to warfare,
the armored motor car has proved ex
tremely useful, especially for outpost
arid scouting duty. Fast, silent, and
mobile, it covers a, vast amount of
ground on the splendid roads that
crisscross the field of war in western
Europe. Most of the cars are incased
in a, light frame of tough steel plate
that ranges in thickness from three
sixteenths of an inch to a quarter of
an inch, and that is impervious to rifle
and machine-gun Are. All the vulner
able parts of the motor, such as the
radiator and steering gear, and in
some of the newest cars the wheels,
are protected by the steel covering.
The wheels, both wood and wire, are
said to withstand the roughest sort of
usage. Accidents to the tires are
much less common than anyono would
expect. The cars carry a light arma
ment—one or two machine guns so
mounted that they can be swung
through a complete circle—and a
large supply of ammunition. The
crew, which may number from four to
eight or more men, are armed with
rifles and revolvers. Some of the cars
have a steel superstructure that rises
from the chasis frame hjgh enough
to enable the crew to stand upright,
and that is capped with a domed roof,
from which bullets and shrapnel usu
ally fly off at a sharp angle without
even denting the steel.—Youth's Com

AMERICAN WOMEN HAVE DECID

After Refusing for Three Seasons, Sen

The Silhouette May Be
^The French designers have tried to
exploit the fitted sleeve, with its regu

refuse It and go on their way, seem
ingly content with the kind that was
rarely right and never comfortable.
True, its shape contributed to that
carelessness of figure which has been
considered the desirable thing by the
fashionables and their vast number of
followers. And probably the only rea

After three trials they refused it
on every variety of pretext. The
truth was that they didn't want it, and
no score ot French dressmakers could
make them take up with anything
they didn't like. The only reason they
accept it now is that they have
changed their minds concerning it, or
they have wearied of the slouching ki

HOLDS BRUSHES AND COMB
Useful Little Case, Easy of Construo*
tlon and Calling for Compara
tlvely Little Outlay
This useful little case for holding
twG military brushes and a comb can
be easily constructed from a thin
wooden box of a suitable size and
To make it: The lid is cut in half
and nailed down and forms the front
of the case. The upper side of the
box is removed and fastened on at the
back with tiny brass hinges. The
whole of the exterior is covered with
pale green silk, the material being
turned over at the edges and .under
neath and fastened on with a strong
adhesive, and it is lined inside with
soft white silk.
Across the center of the side of the
box that is fastened on with the
hinges, a strap of broad white elas
tic is sewn and to the upper edge a
flap is attached made of some of the
same green silk, lined with white silk
and bound at the edges with narrow
dark green ribbon, and ribbon strings
of a color to match the latter are
sewn tin where indicated to secure the
cas6 when closed.
Our illustration clearly shows the
way in which the case is arranged, and
in the small sketch on the right it
may be seen closed and fastened with
the ribbon strings tied in a smart little
bow. Initials of the owner might well
find a place in the center of the flap
Typhoon Color Now.
Sand color is familiar to everyone,
through the velvet hats that have
proved so popular if in no other way.
Someone who wanted to give a more
striking, because unusual, name to
the color, called it typhoon color with
the result that typhoon velvet hats,
in that particular shop, sold admir
line. A second smaller spray of em
broidery is worked upon the bib and
a frill of lace at top and bottom of
apron is the dainty finish.
FROM A SCRAP OF VELVET
Extremely Pretty Bodice Covering
May Be Devised for Dress of
Net or Lace.
Have you a. piece of velvet about
a half yard long? Do not throw it
away, especially if you are planning a
dress of net or lace for evening.
Make a bodice covering that resem
bles the breast armor of the cru
saders. It need only come on the
front of the dress, with a very short
peplum effect at the lower edge. The
upper part can be cut in two points
that come over the shoulders. To
make^this curious piece of velvet a
part of the gown, cut stots around the
lower part of the cuirass, buttonhole
them and run a sash of silk that
matches the color of the velvet
through the slots. Tie it ai the back
in a loose bow with ends that hang
down to the hem. Pale blue, pink, yel
low or black on white is a distinctive
touch that a scrap of velvet will add.
