Military Air to Rule at Club Ball Notables of Army and Navy Will Attend Annual Event. BY BEATRICE BI.'RGAN Tim** Woman * Paie Kdilor Squared shoulders will be the fashion at the Columbia Club ball Saturday, June 17. There'll be no artifice about the effect, no intri cate pieatings or fluting* of coutu rier designs. The shoulder keynote will be set by the military attaches, who'll assist the club to sound "taps" for social activities at the annual military ball, usually held in early spring. Invitations were issued this week, stirring a patri otic burst with the red, white, and blue stripes on the inv it a tion sheet and enve lope. Enthusiasm was aroused, de spite the ther mometer gambol, by the promise of the presence of Major-G e n e r a 1 George V. Mose- Miss Burgan ley, fifth corps area commander of Columbus, O; Rear Admiral Wat H Cluverius, commandant of the Great Lakes naval station at Chi cago, and Brigadier-General F. C. Bolles of Ft. Sheridan, 111. Pomp and ceremony, so lacking in the usual social life here, will have its night. The ranking offi cer's flag will hang above the speaker’s table, in this case being thp colors of the major-general. After all the speeches and the dinner, Ihe evening will reach the peak. The distinguished visitors will receive guests and lead the grand march, to the blare of mili tary tunes. Besides the braid and metal-trimmed army styles will float the swishing softness of the summer formality for women. Governor Is Honor Guest Honor guests, lending eclat to the hall, will he Governor Paul V. Mr- JNutt. commander of military forces jn Indiana Adjutant-General Elmer F Straub. Major-General Robert H. Tyndall-of the Thirty-eighth di vision; Brigadier-General George H. Jamerson of Ft. Benjamin Harrison: Brigadier-General L. R. Gignilliat of Culver Military academy; Brigadier- General George H. Healy, Military Order of Foreign Wars, and Lieu tenant-Commander O. H. Hessler, naval militia. More than active military lead ers will be represented, as has been the custom of former military balls at the club. Commander Louis A. Johnson and Adjutant Frank E. Samuels, both of the American Le gion, will in the line of honor, as will Major J. H. Davidson, Eighty fourth division: Colonel W. M. Lou den, Spanish-American war veterans: Captain Frank S. Clark, Veteran of Foreign Wars, and Commander James Bowden and Adjutant Joseph B. Henninger, both of the G. A. R. The reception will be in the foyer following dinner. The club's idea of the ball isn't merely to end its social season with a "splash." Hope is to cement the civilian life of the city and state with the military establishment in this territory. Preparations for the hall and dinner are being made by R. C. Rottger, chairman: M. L. Menden hall, vice-chairman, and Dudley R. Gallahue. Wallace O. Lee and Thomas F. Ruckelshaus. Co-operating with this group will be aids of General Jamerson and Major Tyndall. Adjutant Samuels will work directly with the commit tee and so will Major Davidson and Colonel Louden. ‘Comers' to Give Ball The "coming" business and civic leaders of Indianapolis will frolic at Ihr Columbia Club Saturday night. Many of the young business men, just beginning their ventures, be long to the Junior Chamber of Commerce, which will entertain with its formal spring ball.

Dear Jane Jordan—On reading "Manners and Morals," I smile, j Why not make it "Manners and Immorals?" Apparently you stand for immorality and the destruc- j tion of home and family life.

Maurice Hindus in his book. "Hu manity Uprooted," writes: "The rev olutionaries regard the exploita j tion of a woman’s body for commer j cial gain as a vicious insult to wom | anhood.

May I en ter the lists? Let us grant that ; monogamy is a form of marriage in which the highest possible re lationship can be attained. But our loyalty to monogamous mar ! riage must be predicated upon an j honest evaluation of the contri ! bution it makes to spiritual growth, 1 to social usefulness and to hap ; piness. So must any extra-legal relationship be evaluated. Is there decency in loyalty to the empty shell of an institution? In many instances, marriage rep resents nothing hort of legalized prostitution. On the other hand. I have seen in practice many extra legal relationships, which, if hon estly evaluated, must be consid- When “Old Sol” Scorches MAROTT Advises I Science Proves Light Shoes Cooler When it's boiling hot and the 'pavement sizzles Marott advises light shoes, proved by science to be 15 DEGREES COOLER .

If you are to guide folks to a better way of living, you must develop in them an ability to evaluate the situations in which they find themselves. You must guide them to a desire for the higher values which are possible in human relationships. This, it seems to me, you are doing. The general trend of your ad vice is toward the guiding of pas sion and desire in the right direc tion. through a love for some thing higher and better, some thing contributory to the develop ment of a well-rounded personal ity. in which the tilings of the body, the mind, and the spirit shall be blended in a wholesome way. Virtue lies not in self-abnega tion. but in self-development for the good of oneself and of others. Sometimes as you meet these problems you will parallel current conventions, sometimes violate them, sometimes transcend them. But as long as you try to teach people to face the facts of life honestly, and to seek a better way of life as you now are doing, why more power to you! P. V. B. A. Answer—lt was extremely inter esting to find two letters containing such widely varying opinions in the same mail. Because I do not re gard familiar notions as sacred, I am not understood by those who do. I am for marriage when it is a blessing and a delight, but against it as a conventiona coercion. Throughout long and dirty gen erations, society has sought to cast aspersions on love barred from find ing its fulfilment in marriage. Plays like Philip Barry's "Animal King dom” have shown us situations in whch the wife has the qualities of a mistress and the mistress the qualities of a wife. r hope that these two letters will stimulate others to write the column, telling on which side of the fence they stand, and why.

Special Children’s Day Is i Arranged at Ayres’; Talk ; on ‘Spies’ to Be Feature ‘Story Lady’ Will Tell Indian Tales in Book Shop; Beach Department to Have Formal Opening:. BY HELEN LINDSAY IN celebration of the close of public schools. Indianapolis children will be entertained all day Saturday at Ayres. Special programs have been arranged. The most exciting of these are three talks to be given by Major Yardley author of "The Black Chamber." During the World war. Major Yardley was employed in the United States secret service, where he gained fame as a specialist in decoding secret messages. He will talk at 10:30, 2:30. and 4:30 Saturday in the Ayres store auditorium, on "Spies,” and will give demonstrations of secret ink writing. At 11 and 3 Miss Myrtle Snyder, known in radio circles as "The Storv Lady.” will tell Indian stories in the book shop. She will be dressed in Indian costume. Miss Snyder has been in Indianapolis before, telling stories under auspices of the Book House corporation, in schools and public libraries. The children's department of the Ayres Beach Shop will have its formal opening Saturday, when all the summer bathing and play costumes are to be ex hibited. Indications are that the youngsters will be organized into their own particular "nudist colony" this year. Bathing suits are wool trunks, although for the more modest, strap tops are provided, which conceal little. These are made to button on to the trunks. Sun suits for children this year are mere patches of cotton print. They are designed for youngsters from 3 to 6. and have large matching hats, to protect faces from freckles. If guests arrive, and it is necessary to bring chil- dren in from the play yard to greet them, flattering aprons are provided, in matching material, to be donned over the sun suits. These are made with straps over the shoulders, and ties in back. Like other summer wear for young children, the aprons are backless. Older girls will be interested in wrap-around beach dresses, made of striped cottons, which can be worn over bathing suits. One-piece bicycle dresses, made with divided skirts, are suitable for this wear, since most, girls prefer boys’ bicycles. They are made of striped cottons. Bright colored canvas sport shoes have composition soles. They can be laundered in the washing machine. a a a IN the toy department at Ayres, new dolls are waiting tu greet little girls on Saturday. Each doll has an individual name. There is Dollv Varden, Sunflower Sue, Bettina, Katrina, and Gretchen. They have soft bodies, hand-painted faces, and hair made of colored yarn. Little col ored dolls, made in the same fashion, bear characteristic names such as Dixie Lee, Ginger, and Dixie Bell. ana TEK-NO-KRAZY" is the new game offered at Ayres to keep active children interested and quiet on hot afternoons. It is played with thirty pegs and a board made with thirty-two holes. ana ANEW contest offering trips to the Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago for the first ten winners has been opened bv the People's Outfitting Company. With each dollar purchase ten votes are given. These may be assigned to the buyer or to some friend entered in the contest. The first four awards are cash and round trip tickets to the fair.
