New Ways of Shawl Collar Coat
NEW YORK, Sept. 3.—’Most
everybody likes coats with
shawl collars. They're easy to wear
i —becoming to nearly everyone—
; warm.
1 But ’most everybody likes variety,
too, and heretofore there hasn't
been much choice of shawl collars.
There was a shawl collar, and if
yr'u wanted one it looked much like
all the others.
This year there is variety. At
least five kinds of shawl collars
are fashionable. Some of them can
be wom in two or three different
ways, too.
For instance—there’s a collar
called tne "lei” shawl, because one
way it’s worn it looks like the gar
land hung around your neck by
native Hawaiians when you take
your departure from the island.
Effect of Lei
This effect is shown in the left
hand sketch of the three. And you
hardly think of that as a shawl
collar at all, would you?
But there are two other ways it
can be worn, and one way looks
just like a one-sided shawl collar,
with the right-hand side of the col
lar extending diagonally to the
waistline, crossing the shorter left
That’s the most wide-open way
to wear it. The sketch shows it in
the second position—half open and
half closed. And the third way
to wear it is wound close about
the throat with the chin smuggled
comfortably down into the fur.
Two-Way Shawl
Another new shawl collar that
can be worn two ways is shown in
the sketch in the center. This is
the one-sided, long shawl collar
that closes above the waistline.
(You can see how far above the
waistline the three buttons extend.)
Worn as sketched, it’s a mighty
comfortable collar for cold days.
But on warmer days the two top
buttons can be undone and the
right side of the collar allowed to
fall back in the way of a fur-edged
The left side of the collar then
falls straight down the front to a
point just about on a level with the
armhole of the coat.
A Question Mark
A third shawl-collar—and one
i that looks something like this one
sided, long shawl—is called the
! “question mark” shawl, because it
looks like a question mark made
The right side of this shawl ex
tends clear to the waistline and the
shorter left side can be tucked
under the right, close around the
neck, or left to fall back on the
The lei shawl collar already de
scribed is a fashion best for the
younger person. But there's anew
one for the not-so-young woman
too. It’s the squared rever shawl
and is shown at the right.
Dignified Looking
This is quite a dignified looking
collar and smartest in the shorter
haired furs like mink, kolinsky,
Hudson seal and so forth.
It’s a flatter looking collar than
those of long haired furs described
above, giving almost the effect of
revers. And it’s set back slightly to
frame the face.
The fifth fashionable shawl collar
you’ll find on fall coats is the one
you already know—the regular
shawl collar extending about to the
waistline, set back on the fabric to
stand up and make a frame.
It’s good-looking, becoming, com
fortable. Not as new as the others
but just as much in fashion if you
like it best.

When I was little my mother

no dent in my young life—she

or the other.

in an enormous dark dining room.
Out in the hall there were singing
and tremulous voices recalling the
virtues of the dead.
The long talking out in the hall
bored me, the singing coupled
with the sad faces of the dark
ladies disturbed me.
Outdid Best Mourners
To my amazement my mother and
her friends began to cry. Suddenly
the strangeness of it all crashed
into my tiny soul and I began to
I outdid the best mourners there
—I did it so well that—well, never
mind, but I had to be led out to
the back porch to pass off the rest
of my grief.
I have v tched other children at
other fun* >,ls. I have never ap
proved of their being there—not
until their age and reason can cope
a little with the mystery of death.
Because the dramatics of the av
erage funeral, kindly and sympa
thetic as they may be, are not con
ducive to that normalcy we are try
ing so hard to achieve in the young
er generation.
Children React Differently
It is not generally known that
children have a subconscious fear
of death. It is one of those obses
sive fears hard to define and diffi
cult to deal with. It shows itself
in various ways in behavior.
There is no good reason that I
can see for deepening this terror
by emotional occurrences at funer
als, particularly when it is not nec
essary. With one of the family it
is different, but even then the less
dramatization, I think, the better.
Os course there is a difference in
children; some are not sensitive to
any melancholy influence, while
others need very little to encourage
a morbid terror of the unknown.
That has to be taken into con
sideration. If they can gain a
healthy viewpoint of death, that it
comes and should be accepted, with
out accompanying fear, how much
better that is.

Flower Mission Activities

While the boy was made more
comfortable and good food supplied
in place of the peaches, Mrs. Noerr
