WITH the return of warm weather there returns also the same old threadbare story about th i elim ination of the shirtwaist. One hears the final dictum—presumnbly from Paris—that suits and blouses must match In color, and that all the shirt waists worn by really well dressed women are of some other material th in a lingerie stuff and of a color repeat ing the hue of the skirt accompanying them, Why, then, one speculates, are all the trig, attractive feminine folk who in the restaurants about one remove their spring Jackets to reveal cool, fresh and obviously new white lingerie blouses? All this talk about the elimination of the white shirtwaist is nonsense. The white washable blouse has become ton thoroughly and Indispensably a fea ture of the summer wardrobe to be sac rificed to any style mandate.

On such ii day the chiffon blouse over a silk lining, or even a thin silk blouse looks hot and feels hotter; and with June only a few weeks off it is high time the foresighted woman has her warm weather blouses off the sewing machnie and in the shirtwaist box ready to wear. The plainness of the new blouses strikes one noticeably in a first can vass of the shops where shirtwaists are specialized. A few tucks and a frill are the sole trimming in many caa s; or there is a simple binding of em broidery introduced down the front; but materials, in the case of the best waißts, are beautifully fine, and some of these exquisitely fine blous s with daintily run pin tucks and a pleated frill along one side of the front are quite as attractive and in much better taste than the hon?ycombed lace and lawn models of a few seasons since. A marquise blouse for wear with tailored suits was made In this fashion, the LOS ANGELES HERALD SUNDAY MAGAZINE material being the French batiste. Half-inch tucks were run across the front from shoulder to bust, continu ing all the way down the front as the center was reached. The blouse fas ten, 'iii'il toward the left—as everything din's this Russian-mad season —and the edge was finished with a shaped frill of the lawn some four Inches wide at the top and tapering to a point at the bottom. Down the center front of the blouse went a row of fine Ham burg embroidery. The sleeves of this waist, in bishop style, were gathered into cuffs of tucking, and the upp *r sleeve waa made smaller by rows of tucks running from the top down to about the elbow. This is a clever no tion which secures a trim look at the shoulder line, yet gives the slightly fuller sleeve which is liked now. toned toward the left—as everything Another clever feature tl the de tachable frill which may be slipped out and sent to a special laundry to be fluted crisply; something the ordinary washerwoman cannot do. This saves the expense of sending the whole blouse to the special French laundry, whose prices are pro hibitive to the average woman. The detachable frill Is sewed to a narrow strip of the batiste, and in this button bo'M are worked at intervals corre sponding to thos • worked on the blouse front. The frill is then buttoned on over the pearl buttons of the blouse and remains there until removed for laundering. White frills for wear in silk blouses may be attached in the same way. Many colored effects are shown in the new summer shirtwaists and some of thorn are very pretty. A white batiste waist, tucked across the front, has a pleated frill bordered with blue and white dotted lawn, and the dotted lawn also finishes cuffs and collar. This blouse would be very dainty with a blue serge suit. A pink and white cotton voile blouse in tiny stripes had a plain pink lawn frill set under the striped one of voile and pipings of the plain pink were used on cuffs and col lars. This model was shown also in green and white, and lavender and white and was much admired.
