wearing my stage :owns in private
life. I want to get way from them.
The instant I put them on, I feel key
ed up to a scene. At home, I wear
loose things mostly chiffon, Geor
gette crepe, or crepe de chine.
The softness and silkiness of these
fabrics appeals to me. They drape
gracefully and there is no weight to
them. My street gowns are simple.
I do not care for severely tailored
clothes. I wear, usually, what is
known as a semi-tailored suit
Most of my hats are small and of
vivid coloring. My hair and eyes are
dark. A vivid color casts a reflection
on my face and makes my eyes even
larger and more brilliant than they
As to eating: I have always dread
ed putting on flesh. I do not fear
obesity, but I eat comparatively lit
tle. For breakfast I have fruit, ome
let, toast and tea.
At noon I eat almost nothing. If
we have had a strenuous morning I
force myself to eat to provide
strength for the afternoon. But at
dinner, pity my cook! My peculiar
ity is that when I find a dish I like,
I insist upon my cook preparing it
perhaps three or four times in suc
cession. The meal I like most is the late
supper and of course it is the most
harmful to a woman of my profes
sion to try to fight the desire to have
a bite to eat every night before I go
to bed.
Sometimes, to satisfy my craving
for food, my maid suggests hot milk.
I loathe hot milk. I always refuse and
go to bed dreaming of Welsh rarebits
and lobster Newburg.
The last question interviewers ask
me is: "What sort of sports do you
I do not like golf and like tennis
only fairly well.
But I'm very fond of motoring, mo
tor boating and swimming. Even a
"vampire" must know how to swim.
That's one reason I learned how.
Maybe some day Mr. Fox will give me
a picture where I can display my
swimming ability. Then, perhaps,
they will call me "Lorelei."

"On thing Dame Fashion must do
for women if her dictates are to be
accepted," says Mme. Alia Ripley of
the Fashion Art League of America,
"is to give them fashion that empha
size youth.
"Youth is incorporated in every
fashion that wins favor with women.
"So our wide skirts now are short
and skillfully handled, all heaviness
and clumsiness are eliminated and
even when a hoop or distender is
used our movements and our unre
strained mode of living is in no way
"This brings us to the question of
the actual hoopskirt. I doubt very
much if we will use the actual hoop
skirt or, perhaps, if used, then only in
evening gowns.
"But whether artificially stiffened
or not, skirts are yards and yards
around the bottom all the way from
five or six yards for street wear to
ten and tweve for evening and after
noon." o o
First sea voyager (on rather rough
trip) Ah, isn't the salt air bracing.
The sea is good for a man!
Second sea voyager (wanly) Yes,
it certainly calls forth the best that is
in you. Pelican.
For the "sweet-girl graduate" who will wear wide skirted, panniered
frocks during the graduation festivities, Mme. Margurite of the Fashion
Art League of America, has designed a charming frock. It is purple
duvetyn cloth lined with pale gray.
