IN WOMAN'S WORLD
The Smart
Set
her shoes gold buckles. Queen Mary couldn't have done more, from her
point of view, and she hadn't. an idea Queen Mary might have done less.
Across the room might have been discovered a young Burlingame
matron equally determined to be well gowned. With her, however, it
would be a less desperate effort; more a subconscious 1 instinct of wearing
suitable- things. A black cloth tailor suit, small black felt, hat, properly cut
and aigretted, and no chatelaine display added -to the general simplicity,
would be her way. / i
Only one who may modestly study sartorial vagaries like motor bonnets
on the heads of hopeless pedestrians, golf and polo coats adapted to shop
ping and a "strictly tailor made at $14.48," combined with a $40 willow
plume, might realize the single purpose of both costumes. Others wouldn't
think it worth considering in a serious analytical way. Half of them would
just, say the first was gorgeously gowned and the second didn't know how
to dress. The other half would (if they remarked it at all) declare the first
impossible and the second meriting no comments, which, analyzed, would
mean it was quite as it should be. Which is the way the world is divided.
Neither the Burlingame matron nor the queen of Sheba could please every
one. Just as well they both do their own way, serene in their consciousness
of being well gowned and giving both divisions entire satisfaction.

most women desire to be well
gowned. Strange because, with . a
splendid singleness of purpose, they
attain such madly different results.

Names of Several
Schools Changed
by the Directors
School ■ Director Payot, at > the meet
ing of the board of education yesterday,
introduced a resolution .to change the
names of' a number of the 'public
schools. As a reason for this, he said
that some of the public « schools were
designated by honored names associated
with the history of the "country,/and a
number still; retain the name of the
locality or;street on- which located, In
most cases/the same being meaningless.
inappropriate .and.-of no value./ He
proposed > the following' changes:

Francis Scott Key school; Bergerot to
Rochambeau school; Ocean House *to

He also suggested the name of ; Mar
tha Washington ..for " the r new school -to
be built in Norwich street. > / -"/;'. /;//-'/
| The • changes were adopted/ except as
to the Norwich street school, as there is
a Washington grammar school and the

thought that three vWashingtons would
be confusing. That name will, be con
sidered in conference/ Monday.

On Garbage Problem
'BERKELEY, Nov. B.—Mrs. Alexis F.

address today to the new women's civic

garbage ; Incinerator problem. The
question will-be submitted to the/voters
early next year in the form of a direct

Mrs. Lange described the modern in
cinerator ; methods in vogue - in i Ham
burg, Glasgow, Edinburgh ,-; and Liver
pool. - • ""v'v":;--; ' *.">.
"The cost of labor being cheaper than
in this; country," she, said, "lends a dif
ferent aspect to the garbage disposal
problem as contrasted with .conditions
in, America. Cities !of Europe are able
to hire more unskilled laborers to han
dle the refuse than could an American
city." /.;//:;..;.;;;■: „.■'■ ' ..„•//'.--7-
The speaker then took up the meth
ods in : New York city and -Milwaukee,
describing the plants. •" She told of 'the
New York system;by which a ; contrac
tor pays the city $1.50 a ton for the
pick of the waste.
; "According to the authorities," she
said, "this * method saved for New York
$32 ar; day, or $10,000 a year. 7 ; The
refuse that remains for the city to dis
pose of, the slag,, is useful as material
for concrete; road work and for;'road
ballast-instead.of crushed; rock. / • 777
"It would pay Berkeley to send an
expert east to v study, and gather-sta
tistics on garbage incineration meth
ods. ; It would be a profitable invest
ment before establishing a ;plant, ; to
have a thorough scientific investiga
tion made." *

To Shrink a Fleshy,
Flabby, Bloated Face
(From Happy Homes)
The woman whose face has a
bloated appearance at times, particu
larly upon arising, as well as she
whose face is permanently over
fleshy or flabby, should use the saxo
lite solution. This is made by dis
solving 1 oz. powdered saxolite in
y 2 pint witch-hazel, inexpensive in
gredients which any druggist can
supply. Use as a wash lotion. There
is nothing better to reduce the face
to a normal condition. The loose
skin shrinks, bagginess and wrinkles
are ironed out. Not only does the
effect quickly show in ones improved
appearance, but there is also a com
fortable feeling of firmness and
smugness.
This treatment is far superior to
massage. The latter, as a matter of
fact, can afford but temporary relief,
and its continuance tends to break
down the muscular tissue and aggra
vate the trouble.

I suppose" you know the kind of "people I mean—those
well meaning, often extremely kind hearted, sometimes
highly "interesting and entertaining folks, who, despite
all their, good qualities; somehow seem to wear upon you
and tire and inspire you with a sense of relief at their
departure.
/ A girl wrote me about one of these peoplea relative
of hers. , "My: cousin is a wonderfully bright girl* and
keeps us laughing all the time she is here; and yet some
how after she is gone I always feel less strained . and
tired." We sometimes have a specimen of this class in our home. She. Is
the most kind hearted and well intentioned person possible. She does every
thing in her power for us, and yet we are all worn out if she stays more than
a week or two. ..-..-'' '■-• -■'■■
Now, what I want to know, and can't seem to think out, is this: ; First,
what is • it. that make's wearing people wearing ■ and * hard to live with, when
they try so hard to please; and, secondly, how can they get* over it, or
can't they? .. - , ; '* V 7"• " ' ; «7 ■ -'■
xx ls it something that can- be cured or is it some incurable misfortune like
freckles,-sandy;eyebrows or a pug nose that simply has to be endured? ,
I- am especially keen on this topic just now, because a wearing person,
whocontrary to most of her speciesactually, realizes that she is wearing,
has applied to me for aid. 7.7 7 ■.:-'
"I've thought it all out," she says, "and I've decided that I:i am what
people call 'wearing.' 7 Now, can't; you tell me just what I do ,that makes me
tire and fret people so, for truly I don't mean • to. And can't you please show
me someway,; to, get over ; I'd do anything on earth."
Now, what am I going to tell this poor lady? :„-'.-., ,
It seems fto me that \ the thing that makes \ wearing people wearing is
that they are:keyed up all the time and that they have a tendency to screw
every one with whom they, come into contact up to the same tense key, and
thus tire them out. A"X- :'"'-''.' '•''',.-•'"" '^-v-'/'"77*7 777777 A'AAA-x'': - "• ■
Wherefore I should say that the only possible cure would be to try
to unscrew themselves that can be done. , „- -.-' * .' ; '■■
" I am afraid that this is entirely inadequate advice.
