.‘Help Poor’ Is Creed of Clubwomen Welfare Work Is Major Interest of Many City Groups. BY BEATRICE BIRO AN Time* Woman's Pari* Editor “Lend a hand" has become the creed of society women, who have realized the community's need of their leisure time. Often their training in colleges has prepared them for welfare activities. More frequently, their willingness to aid unfor tunate s has aroused an un derstanding and consequent effi ciency, which has become an in tegral factor in the rehabilita tion projects of various social agencies. The most re cent undertaking of this nature is the auxiliary to the Indianapolis Miss Burgan Orphans’ home, organized by the board with the intention of stimu lating the interest and activity of younger women. Several young ma trons and a few young women, re cently students of colleges, were ex tended invitations. Following an explanation of the lines of work in the home, the workers were requested to choose the phase which attracted them. Contrary to opinions of chronic critics who lament the dis appearance of womanliness with its maternal virtues, a majority elected to care for children in the nursery department. Devote Time to Work. Because the auxiliary became sin cerely interested in development of the children, it steered away from tea parties and similar projects. Their time has been devoted to ac tual work. Mrs. John Hollett, who majored in social psychology at Mt. Holyoke college, tutors approximately thirty five children, suffering from speech defects. Miss Constance Fowler has de veloped poise and self assurance in the older boys and girls enrolled in her ballroom dancing class. Last Friday the class held its first dance at the home. The children were as expectant as any boy or girl antici pating the “first dance” and their fun just as genuine. Manages Motor Corps. Miss Ruth Millikan manages the motor corps, which is of service on Saturday morning in transporting the children to doctors and den tists for needed attentions. Mrs. Wynn Owens and Mrs. Jessie Fletcher, members of the board, have been working with the auxiliary in its first year’s activities. The Junior League of Indianapolis annually continues its constructive work at the James Whitcomb Riley hospital for children. Six members go each day to the hospital wards, where they w'ork under the supervision of graduate therapists. Therapy Staff Aided Members of the league who assist in the work of occupational therapy are required to complete a course, directed by Miss Winifred Conrick. With this knowledge they assist the patients in the various therapy projects. League members also teach out patients who come to the occupa tional therapy shop on Saturday mornings, and two members daily assist the staff at the Rotary con valescent home.

Jackets Individual in Easter Styles Eye-Catching* Blouses Another Feature for ‘Big Parade’ \ Three handsome Easter choices, any one of which might w r ell suit you to a “T”: The Gibson Girl blue suit deft) with wade shoul ders and a pert peplum. It is topped by the latest go-to-fez hat. Softly dressmaker, is this charteuse green and This is the first of a-,series describing smart Easter apparel for the whole family. BY JULIA BLANSHARD NEA Service Writer NEW YORK, April s.—Easter suits carry youthful zest into the fashion parade this year. You can be man-tailored, you can wear a soft dressmaker suit, or you can have some of the mannish suit-ables that combine clear-cut lines with the latest wide-shouldered silhouette. Skirts are more or less incon spicuous. It’s the jackets that count for individuality. You can go in for having that so-called ‘coat-hanger” look to you and be a knockout. You can have a coat that is practically a boiero. one that hits your figure just below the waist in a funny, chic manner; you can have a box coat that just hangs, or a fitted coat or one that is a little mess jacket. The woolens that go into these suits are handsomely woven. Some of the fabrics that look like wool ens really are flax, others are novelty cotton weaves that have the feel and look of wool, not to mention the price. All new suits have eye-catching blouses, whether they are gleam ing white satins that feature un usual sleeves and tie under the chin, or are of striped linen, wo ven flax, printed silks or what. New suits play up blue as a first choice this Easter. Black always suits some women perfectly. Neu tral gray looks like Easter, as it is a late Easter this year. Striped suitings have many different color combinations. a tt tt DON'T buy a single accessory or your hat until you get your suit. And be sure, unless a blouse goes with your suit, that you try them on, before buying. Hats, particularly, must be well with the suits or your whole ensemble is ruined. If it is one of the latest high styled suits you are buying, try the new hats with it! They were made with that sort of suit in Exercise Reduces Hips ll ~~ ~ _ \v ' f' ; \ f f I l / ,' V > / - \ \ Hip roll . . . with opposite arm-swing This is the tenth of twelve daily arti cles by Jae Auer. New York body build ing expert, outlining exercises to improve your looks and health. BY JVC AUER Written for NEA Service CONCENTRATE today on your hips and abdomen. Reducing your hips gives you the slender form you want. Toning up the abdomen is help ful, not only in reducing the waistline, but also is excellent for toning up your whole system, be cause it works toward the com plete elimination of the system, essential to health itself, as well as an exuberant, lilting figure. This exercise is a double one. You swing your shoulders one way, your legs another. It is a par ticularly fine abdominal squeeze that you get by this opposite swing. Sit up straight on the floor and rock back as far as you need to get proper balance to lift your feet slightly off the floor, ankles crossed. Your arms instinctively will go out to your sides to bal ance you. Keep them as near shoulder level as you can, and parallel. Now swing your legs off the floor to the left side as you swing your arms forcibly to the right side, keeping them at shoulder height. Rest. Now swing your legs off the floor to the right and your arms to the left. Try it a couple of tunes, resting in between. (From Sally Milgrim, New York.) gray striped woolen suit (center), with short sleeves. Very new is this black gigolo suiif (right), with diminutive fitted jacket with great pointed revers, faced with the red, black and white printed silk of the blouse. The hat is the new Maria Guy coach man’s model. mind. You'll probably find one that was made with you in mind. Inspired by the gay nineteen hundreds, a smart fine felton navy wool suit flaunts a pert peplum. and has the new Gibson Girl silhouette. Its shoulders are padded and puffed to exaggerate their width, with the express pur pose, of course, of minimizing your hips and making your limbs look slender and tapering. It has wide, flaring lapels and buttons right down the front, with a very narrow leather belt around a high waistline, to emphasize the peplum. The skirt has little godets in front to repeat the peplum's flare. With this the new Maria Guy go-to-fez hat is done in white, with a little stand-offish ribbon fancy at one side, the color of the suit. White gloves, blue pumps with stitched stripings, a blue purse and a soft, white satin blouse with a tie collar complete the smart Easter picture. u n tt VERY original is a black gigolo suit, neat, smart, unusual, its diminutive jacket is fitted, has very wide shoulders and tight, straight sleeves. The trim skirt fits up to a high waistline and buttons down the side with the button holes out lined in the novelty red, white and black printed silk that fashions the blouse and the great pointed revers of the coat. This print aiso lines the coat. With this is worn the new Maria Guy coachman hat that is such a furore. If a girl is the kind who can wear it, it is smart as no other hat is smart this year. Oxfords, of trim, tailored cut, with the new punchwork holes for decoration, make a suitable addi tion to this suit's appearance. Much easier to wear than either of these suits is a chartreuse green and gray striped woolen dress maker one. It has a simple skirt, and its silk blouse is the chart reuse. The coat is an easy, surplice cut, with the new short sleeves that let the blouse show for cuffs. It fastens with a single button of the wool. Now swing first to one side with your feet, arms in opposite direction, then reverse, completing the exercise. Do it several times, until you can feel your abdomen getting the squeeze. This exercise works directly on | your hips too, and your buttocks. It is an invaluable aid toward ! complete co-ordination of your body and limb muscles, which makes for perfect poise.

Next—Easter coats. Manners and Morals Bring your perplexities to Jane Jordan, who will help you straighten them out in your own mind. Dear Jane Jordan—Can a per son be in love and not know it? It’s like this. We’re both 20 and have known each other fifteen years. I’m the only girl he goes with, but he never has spoken of marriage. He isn’t in a position to marry, for he has no job and no prospects, but it seems to me that if his love was real he would say something about wanting to some time. Ke says he loves me and seems so sure of it. I never tire of him. I’d rather spend an evening at home with him than to go anywhere on earth with anybody else. If this is love, it isn’t exactly what I thought it would be like. Could it be that I do love him. but that it has come upon me so gradually that I don’t know I’m in love? I’m sure he isn’t my ideal in looks, for he really is a bit home- i ly. But how many women ever marry their ideal in looks? He is a swell person, though, and makes up for his looks by being kind, generous and loving. I do hope you can help me. Is there any test that can be used to prove love? Answer: It is typical of a woman that she can not regard love as an interlude. As soon as she estabishes a happy companionship with a man, she examines it for signs of per manence. The nesting instinct is so strong that the moment some man attracts her, she expects him to join her in plans for a future home in which to express their love and house their children. But the man is content with the happiness of the moment. He makes no plans for permanence un til he fears that he will lose the girl unless he does. Then, if he has come to believe that she is necessary for his happiness, he signs on the dotted line. You want me to tell you that you are in love with this young man. The fact that you need reassurance shows that you feel something is missing. Therefore, if you want to find happiness, you either will have to change your young man or change your concept of love. a a ts Most young girls learn all they know about love from romantic novels or from highly colored film stories. Cheap fiction and the movies fulfill the wishes of women in a way that real life does not. It causes them to build up a picture of love impossible to realize in fact. Disappointment and unhappiness result. Tire all-conquering male of the movies is a hero who seldom ma terializes. In reality, this godlike creature is a playboy who avoids stern responsibilities as long as possible. He likes women to play with, but he shies away from tying himself down to one. How does he knew that he won’t want somebody else later on? a tt a The girl who waits to be swept off her feet by a prince, whose inten i tions are serious from the first, ! seldom realizes her ideal. She is not trained to recognize the timor ous stages which the male goes through before and after he com mits himself. When finally he gives up, he likes to think of himself as a conqueror, but in a sense it’s a truer statements to say that he is licked. Since you are so young, it is ad visable for you to stop trying to label your emotion until time has had a chance to develop it or de stroy it. It is true that you have known the young man for fifteen years, but you both were children. Wait and see what an adult view point does to your companionship. Dear Jane Jordan—l am a girl in my teens. I am in a crowd of girls and boys out for a good time. They are fine, even though they may seem rather rowdy to out siders. My mother objects to some of the boys and won’t let me go to the parties they have. The other girls’ mothers let them go. We modern children like to have a good time, and are just as goody goody as our ancestors. Kappa Beta Convention to Be Here Sessions at Butler to Be Attended by Delegates from Six States.

BY JANE JORDAN 1 There is never anything wrong in what we do. Please advise me. MODERN GIRL. Answer—At your age almost every young person is engaged in a strug gle for freedom from parents. Sometimes it is not so obvious as it is in your case, but it is there just the same. It is a struggle which must be won if they are to learn to live in the world independ ently. The wise parent knows exactly what is happening and encourages the child to make the break. How ever, it’s a smart girl or boy who retains the parents as advisers. 1 can not tell from your letter wheth er your mother has any real ground for her objections, which are hid den from you, or whether she is motivated by prejudice. Talk with her sympathetically and try to find out for yourself. Dear Jane Jordan—There is a young boy who seems to be very fond of me and I of him, but I have found out that I am over a year older than he is. It makes me feel like I am robbing a cradle or something. Do you think I should stop seeing him, or what must I do? DOUBTFUL. Answer: I can't see why such a slight difference in ages should make any difference in your frend ship. If you’re having a good time together, that's all that matters. CLUB SPEAKER • • y- . : : : • ?

BY HELEN LINDSAY FOR the person who takes gardening and lawn culture seriously thi3 spring, there are all the thriils of a three-ring circus, for the most unusual and interesting things are happening in the gardening world. Sprinkling systems are being handled in an underground way. While this formerly was only practical for large estates and public grounds, underground sprinkling systems have been introduced which are suitable for the small gar den or lawn. Small annealed copper tubes are placed about two or three feet below the soil surface. By pressing an electric switch in the house, the water is released through these copper tubes, sending out the moisture which the roots of the grass and plants seek. L. A. Turnock, local representative for the North ern Indiana Brass Company, which has perfected this system of Nibco sub-surface irrigation, explains that in this way only one-fourth of the water used ordi narily in watering lawns and gardens will be con sumed. Evaporation, which takes place in ordinary sprinkl ing methods, is eliminated with this sub-surface de vice. Rock gardens, according to D. D. Morris, land- scape gardener, are being combined more and more with lily pools. Mr. Morris uses coloring substances on concrete and even on coke, to effect the desired natural rock coloring where rocks are not available. According to this garden expert, electricity plays a leading part in spring gardening ideas, with the introduction of electric lawnmowers, electric shrubbery shears, and even electric hotbeds. O tt tt Sprinkler Saves Passer-by TPHE Rain-Square lawn sprinkler, featured at the Vonnegut Hardware* -*■ Company, answers the question of sprinkling the plot of ground close to the sidewalk. Differing from the ordinary lawn sprinkler, this new device sprinkles not in a circle, but in a square, so that it can be adjusted to reach all corners of the lawn, and still not drench the passer-by. Among the most popular garden tools displayed at Vonnegut's are cultivators with four prongs and long handles; bamboo rakes, reinforced with metal to prevent their breaking when they become wet, and turfi cutters, to be used in trimming around walks and flower beds. tt tt a Garden Grown by Pattern THE most "ultra” note in the new gardening ideas is the paper pattern for the garden. The designer formerly planted seeds at random, hoping that color combinations and design would develop according to fond nopes. The garden now is planted according to a desired design by use of a pattern of perforated holes in mulch paper. The mulch paper aids seed germination, and discourages weeds in the garden. This pattern is shown in L. S. Ayres garden department. Outstanding in this department, also, is anew rambler rose, which has been patented in the United States patent office. It is the "Blaze;” a crimson rambler which blooms once a month all the summer, instead of only once during the year. tt tt a Information Given on Shrubs SHRUBS and evergreens, together with desirable plants for rock gar dens, are grown in profusion at the Weigand Evergreen Nursery on Kessler boulevard. Experts at the nursery provide ideas for the proper shrubs to bs planted according to the season, advising also on the kind most effective for the individual grounds.
