LEGHORN AND VELVET MAKE
STARTLING NEW. SUMMER HAT
- T " '
This black velvet crown and facing on the leghorn straw brim makes
one of the real stunning dreas hats for the summer season. And the dress
hat is holding its oyn against the onslaught of the taiUeur modes. Even
the sports hats have taken on a certain dressiness this season. It certainly
is not trimming which makes this hat sruitable for formal wear, for the
large pompom on the side of the soft velvet crown is the only adornment
used.
I Dorothy Dix Talks
THE CLINGING VINE vs. THE BEAN POLE. jj
I By DOROTHY DIX, The World's Highest Paul Woman Write?
Delia O'Grady is as pretty and clev
er a little milliner as ever twisted a
wisp of ribbon and tinsel into a hat,
stuck a gold rose on the outside of it
and a Paris label on the inside, and
and .sold it for an imported French
confertion.
Ordinarily Delia is as pay and smil
ing as a spring morning, but the other
day I found her with her white young
brow corrugated with thought wrink
les, and her blithe spirits registering
T deep dark gloom. So 1 asked her what
ryas the matter.
"Oh," she replied pessimistically, "I
am wreslling with the new woman
problem of whether it is better for a j
wife who really loves her husband J
and -wants to help him to be a clinging
vine or a bean pole whether she
helps him most by lightening his bur
den, or by dumping such a load on him
he's got to fight for his life or be
crushed, and I've about roar bed the
conclusion that you can't be good to
your has band without ruining him.
"And my heart's hurt, and my
pride's hurt, for I thought in my nn
it that I had solved three of the big
gest conundrums of our day first,
how poor young people could afford
to marry while they are still young
enough to reaJly love, and before their
romance gets all the gilt rubbed off of
ihe gingerbread."
"And secondly, how to prevent the
economic waste of putting a girl in the
kitchen who has trained herself to fol
low a profitable, gainful occupation
when she marries which is as silly as
it would be to put a hundred horsepow
er engine to doing a l wo-horsepower
job."
"And thirdly, how to open up a ca
reer of usefulness and profit for mid
dle aged and elderly women who are
now idle and dependent."
' That's a pretty good handful of
problems for anybody to tackle " went
on Delia, "but I thought that I had
worked them all out successfully in
ray own case, and now I Jind that my
solution doesn't stand the acid test of
actual experience, and I am up in the
air like everybody else."
"You know before I married Tom
I had this nice little business that is
making me a good living. It's work
that I like to do for I feel that I am
an artist creating beautiful things in
silks and laces instead of paints and
marble, and, moreover, l hat I am a
philanthropist who softens the home
liness of many a woman and makes
her easier on the eyes that have to
look at her by giving her a good hat "
"Well when Tom and I were going
to get married of course he said the
usual masculine thing of protecting me
from the hardships of life, and about
my giving up the shop and doing no
more work except in my own little
home. I declined on the ground that
making hats was a joy and play to me,
and I loathe cooking and washing pots.
"I also explained to him that there
is no truth in the old saying that two
can live as cheaply as one, but that
there was no gainsaying the truth
that two people, working at their
trades, can earn more than one. I
showed him that if we both kept on
working for a few years we could not
only live in much greater comfort than
we could if we had to pinch along on
his small salary, but that we could
sae up enough money to buy us a
home, or for him to start in business,
and to give our children if we had
any. a better education and a better j
start in life than either of us had."
As for the home, I explained to him
that we need not be deprived of that
for we had an old mother who had
to be supported anyway, who would
be perfect 1 happy to feel herself use
ful once more, and independent on the
salary we would pay her for running

"Tom demurred a little, but all the
logic was on my side, so we -were mar

as per my schedule. We would come
home in the evening from our differ

the jolliest evening chatting, for each
