Fasbionablo Women Arc Adopting Fuller and
Daintier Gowns.
A FEW nights ago, at a fashionable charity
entertainment, n fascinating little New
York girl appeared In a costume representatlvo
ot tho early part ot the last century. Unless
Dame Fashion veers decidedly around, before
very long we shall be wearing this Identical
stile, for each day brings skirts fuller and
shorter nnd bodices more contracted. One of
the most picturesque frocks Is being worn by
Miss Ella Brock. The material Is pale blue
Pompndour silk, liberally sprayed with pink
rosebuds, nnd the gown has a snugly fitting
basque, the decolletage softened with cream net.
The skirt Is quite short, and Is shirred over the
hips and luted at the hem. An Inch-wide black
velvet bow, with long streamers, adds a finish
ing touch at the back.
Miss Eleanor Blspham wears a delicate frock
of pale blue satin, over which Is hung a tunic of
blue and silver bugles. The skirt Is In dancing
length. An effective gown of deep garnet velvet
was worn by Miss Kitty Penn Smith recently.
It w'ns hung qulto straight from the shoulders,
hardly defining the waist line, and was devoid
of trimming. Mrs. George McFadden Is also
wearing a Bmart gown of deep red velvet It Is
draped In Grecian fashion and filled In at the
decolletage with soft cream-colored lace. Over
this Mrs. Mcradden wears a. gorgeous cloak.
Miss Nancy Coleman appeared recently In a
girlish little gown of palest pink pussy-willow
taffeta. It was made quite simply, reljlng on
the draping for effect, and had a wide girdle
nnd an oversklrt of the taffeta. The tiny sleeves
were caught on the shoulders with rosebuds.
Miss Mary Evelyn Chew looks well In a danc
ing frock of soft white crepe ds chine, com
bined with black velvet. The skirt is of crepe
de chine, accordion pleated, and the short
walsted bodice consists ot a wide band of black
velyet without fulness, relieved by a little edg.

Citizens Atouecd By Councils' Fniltiro
to Comply With Director Porter's
Request for Funds to Increase Force.
Organizations Unite.
United action to force an appropriation from
Councils for more police In Germantown was
discussed today by leadlmr civic workers when
they teamed that Councils had ignored Director
Porter's demand for provision for E00 new po
licemen. Three Germantown associations will combine
In the new effort to get adequate protection.
,For several months there has been agitation
for more pollco as tho result of many robberies
In the Germantown section.
The three organizations are the Germantown
Business Men's Association, the Germantown
and Chestnut Hill Improvement Association and
the East Germantown Improvement Association.
A month ngo delegations from all three Inter
viewed Director Porter and urged the necessity
for more police In their districts. They pointed V
out the record of robberies In the section, de
claring the present force In Germantownyloo
small to meet the situation.
The organizations also sent many letters to
Councils asking for an appropriation for more
police, but the letters were Ignored. Tho same
falo befell Director Porter's request at Councils'
meeting Thursday. It was learned today that
members of tho East Germantown Improvement
League are talking of forming a Vigilance Com
mittee to keep down the number of robberies In
that section.
1 Like measures may be resorted to by mem
bers of the other two organizations. Besldents
of Germantown aro virtually In a state of terror
because ot the large number of robberies.
The Bev. Harle W. Hathaway, pastor of the
Coienant Presbyterian Church, of 21st street
nnd Chelten avenue, said:
' I cannot understand how City Councils can
remain passive when It knows what conditions
are In Germantown. We are virtually helpless
Wllllnm M. Emhardt, president of the German
town and Chestnut Hill Improvement Associa
tion, said:
"We shall certainly combine the work of the
Germantown -civic organizations. The lack of
police Is appalling. Not only do we need police
to prevent burglaries, but the main thorough
fares are the scenes of many accidents because
they are not properly policed,"
FOR SHARE OF $50,000
Councils' Appropriation for Unemployed
Attracts Unworthy From Distant
States "Some Good Pickin's," Beg
gar at Aid Headquarters Declares.
Attracted by the 350,000 appropriation for, the
unemployed, which was fathered by Common
Councilman John P. Connelly, hoboes and
members of the wanderlust brotherhood are
flocking to Philadelphia. Riders ot freight cars
and prof esslonal' beggars are eager to partici
pate in the appropriation.
Fifty professional beggars and widely known
charity seekers haie been arrested by detec
tives of the mendicant squad since Connelly's
ordinance became a law through the support
of Republican Organization Councllmen.
Men whose homes are In distant cities
crowded about the Emergency Aid Committee's
headquarters at H2S Walnut street today eager
to get cash. Many of the applicants frankly
admitted they had heard of Connelly's ordl.
Since the appropriation was made, no par
ticular method has been adopted to distribute
the city money. Four widely known charity
agencies have declined to assist in the distri
bution. It has been suggested by prominent
social workers that the danger ot bad politics
being Injected In the new movement caused
the four charity agencies to refuse to partici
pate in the movement
When the appropriation was made, It was
decided that the Emergency Aid Committee
should have charge of the distribution of the
city money. As yet not a cent of the 350,000
fund has been distributed.
"There ought to be some good plcktn's here,"
said a beggar as he stood outside of 1428 Wal
nut street The appearance of professional
mendicants who hae been loitering near the
aid headquarters the last two days has caused
residents to complain.
On file In the headquarters of the Society
for Organizing Charity are many applications
from total strangers who want a share of the
350,000 appropriation. Some came from Con
necticut, Rhode Island and other States. The
applications for cash aid were made at the
different substations of the Emergency Aid
Many suggestions were made today how the
150,000 could be spent. Social workers sug
gested paying It to men employed on the high,
ways. In parks and on boulevards An en
thusiastic war veteran, who saw the "hoboes,"
said a part ot the 350,000 should be spent ar
nlshlng and cleaning the statue of William
Penn on top of City Hall. A neighborhood
house where poor children can spend their
winter afternoons was suggested by a social
worker. This man said if such a house was
constructed work could be obtained for many
Max Herzberg, president ot the United He
brew Charities, said: "I do not think It Is a
good Idea to have Councils appropriate money
for unemployed. There Is always chance of
an Invasion of unworthy men from other cities
who might Impose upon the municipality.
"The heads of the parlous municipal depart
ments ought to ascertain just what Improve
ments are needed and then give work to the
unemployed," he said.

Civic Workers Plan to Establish Station
for Advice of Victims of Housing
Evils in Finding Thcrri Better
A renting bureau where Philadelphia's poor
can obtain Information relating to aanllnry
dwellings which rent for the same Amount thai
Is charged for dirty and wlndowtess tenement
will be established shortly by civic workers.
The plan is to educate the tenement poor and
urge them to, leave their present Insanitary
homes nnd move to other sections of the city
where there is no difference In the cost ot rent
Suppling 'residents of the tonements with
Information about belter homes was suggested
today by members of the Philadelphia Housing
Commission. It has not been decided where the
renting bureau will be located.
A study of various residential sections of
Philadelphia ha convinced civic workers that
there are many sanitary houses, with real win-
j0w, bathtubs, running water and other Im
provements which can be rented for the ahje
amount charged for dirty tenements,
Trained social Investigators will be assigned
to make tours of the city, locate vacant houses
nnd to ascertain Uie rents. Records of house
known to be sanitary will be kept at th
After n record of about 500 sanitary homes
where the rent Is moderate has been made. In
vestigators will be assigned to congested sec
tions where dirty and unventllated tenement
are. Residents of tenements will be told of tha
sanitary dwellings, where rent is no greater
than they pay for the hovels In which they
"There are hundreds of families In the tene
ment house section," sold one civic worker
today, "who could easily move tOUP-to-daU
houses In the northern part of the city. Many
houses thero charge the same rents that land
lords charge for tho unventllated dwelling
w hlch are living vaults nnd death chambers."
The action of Councils' finance committee In
Ignoring the appropriations for the new
Division of Housing and Sanitation was ai,-aln
condemned today In various parts of the city.
Voters, especially thoso who live In the 7th
Ward, of which Select Councilman Charle
Segcr is leader, expressed their feelings openly
today about his stand relating to the;
housing laws. Seger Is among the Councllmen
who have declared they were opposed to the
new Division of Housing and Sanitation. That
the attitude which Seger has taken in connec
tion with the new housing laws will Injuie him
politically was predicted today.
Common Councilman Connelly has twsen men
tioned several times as a probable candidate
fon City Solicitor on the Republican Organiza
tion ticket He has also expressed himself as
being opposed to the housing reform provided
by act of legislature, to enforce which Councils
refuses appropriations, because In his opinion
It Is too drastic.
Residents ot sotrle sections of the city sug
gested today the holding of mass meetings In
localities where the dirty tenements are located
to enlighten the poor on tho stand that Con
nelly and Seger have taken.
