all patriotic movements.
General Headquarters,

Dear Sin:
Please accept for yourself and con
vey to the workers of the Wanamaker
Stores my warmest thanks on behalf
of myself and the British Armies in
France for your hearty message of .
congratulation and goodwill.
I have to thank you as well for the
beautifully printed Union Jack with
the Verses of love for Old England,
which you so kindly sent me and by
which I was very much touched.
Your record of supplying 1200 men
'for the U. S. Army and subscribing
15,000,000 dollars to the Liberty Loan
is one to be proud of.
Wishing you all a very Merry
Christmas and the best prospects for
the future,
Believe me, yours very truly,
(Signed) D. HAI(j, F. M.

New satin and straw hats. New hats for "Sports wear.
New shapes and new colors.
(Second Floor, Chestnut)
New Gowns for Morning, Afternoon
and Evenings
A few of . them are fresh from Paris exceedingly simple, straight
lined frocks, exquisite in color and, made altogether by hand. With hand
embroidery. White and rose and flesh-colored voiles, some with linen pleat
ings, are in this group and the softest of old blue silks with white bound
But the majority of the gowns are made by American designers from
imported fabrics and are possessed oc as much charm as if they had been
born across the water.
Various shades of rose and the new beige, mauve and pale yellow are
among the colors; and there are bloused bodices, narrow kimono sleeves,
broad soft sashes and great quantities of beads are among the fashion
features. Many of the evening gowns show no sleeves whatever, and one of
the most striking of them all is of a marvelous gray fabric, covered abso
lutely with tiny crystal beads, the whole accented by a single great orchid
in the girdle. One model of heavy beige crepe is held in at the foot by a
band of beads and a great rose. Other evening gowns are entirely covered
with tiny spangles black or white. A silver gown of silver cloth and heavily
embroidered silver ijet has velvet dahMas in the girdle.
Then there are sports frocks of heavy tricolette sometimes flesh color,
with embroidery of gray wool; severely tailored frocks of heavy white silk ;
simple linen frocks with hand hemstitching and embroidery, and pale tinted
tricolette .with very heavy hand-crocheted work.
Never were dresses more wearable and(summery, and altogether to be
worn against the vivid background of bright palms and blue water. ' "

Another lovely blouse has lattice
beading and box pleats, and it promises
to be such a favorite that it comes both
in high and low neck, with a shawl collar,
$6.85 also.
Real filet lace with hand embroidery
is the means, whereby another blouse
achieves much- loveliness. It. is of- the -finest
