THE TIMES Tuesday, August 21, lj)17. HE FASHION'S LATEST IK ST MAKOAJtST KASOXT. Written lor the Vnlted l-rr.) OFFICER'S WIFE IS BUSY WAN WORKER Mark! Mark! In war times dark The fashions are coming' to town- None In rafts, none in tags, But a"; In velvet gowns. NEW YORK. Aug. 17. In spite of committees anl boards and common sense and patriotism and all that, fashions for Fall don't seem to show much let-up In their orgy of ornate ness. Velvet, that fabric of the rich and rare and royal. Is the favored material for suits, separate coats and wraps, evening yowns. afternoon toi lettes and. above everything, hats, cap ping a velvety climax. Already coming velvets cast their shadows above and many fashionable leather brains are abroiling under August suns and hats of velvets. Black velvet tarns, draped turbans of vivid cerise, emerald green or royal purple velvet, usually adorned with a silken tassel, and large broad-brimmed velvet shapes In black, wine or purple velvet re the most ubiquitous. Straws no longer show which way the fashion able whims go it's the velvet lid that's on. As for the gowns and suits and wraps of velvet, the advance models now being shown certainly have much In the way of beauty to offer as an extenuation of their flying in the face of conservation and economy in war times. Dye shortage seems to have no power to dim their gorgeous hues, nor the divergence of facile fingers to knitting, bandage rolling, canning, gardening and munition-making to have lessened the hand embroidery with which they are adorned. Smart and cunning little trotteur suits have short box coats of velvet, preferably black, and short rather tight plain skirts either of the same or of check, striped or plaid serge. White satin waistcoats buttoned up high and mannishly complete a decidedly swag er outfit. Now that all our best boys are In khaki It adds a bit of relief to pee our best girls in such erstwhile masculine toggery. ! The wonderful and colorful velvet evening wraps of last season will again enswathe your shoulders this year, collared and cuffed deep in fur and lined in exotically hued satins. Loose separate street coats with fur collars, cuffs and deep fur bands around their hems In the more somber tones of gun ir.etal. black, tete da nigre. Russian green and navy will vie with the gar ments of all fur. Even in negligees and tea gowns velvet will play its regal part, and loose mantels C-f pastel tinted velvet over inner roues Z lounced lace wifl brighten many a hearth and home. Long loose Turkish coats of velvets In Oriental colors, caught in with cords and tassels of silver and gold and worn with full Turkish trousers of black eatia will keep many a tired business man at home nights. Gleams of metallic embroidery are again lightening tip the sartorial out look and metalUo laces and materials of all sorts are to be used in conjunc tion with the velvets. Velvet suits and wraps are gay with metal em broidery, ornaments and buttons, and the afternoon frocks show pockets, yokes and cuffs picked out with silvei threads among the gold. The more formal evening gowns have ankle-length skirts of velvet with trains of the same. A small draping of velvet may be allowed up a short way on or.e side of the bodice, but or dinarily the realm of the velvet seems to lie below the waist, while the bodice, or what i3 alleged to be a bodice, al though there hardly seems enough of it to warrant a regular name, is of gold or silver lace or metallic net Cascs.des of the wide metallic lace or fioun-ea of it often form the ankle length skirt entirely so that only an overdrape and the inevitable train is of the lustrous velvet. It is said that the manufacturers of metallic fabrics and ornaments have heen forced to seek tne scrap heaps i ' V'' i ri:.j 1 iV... x. I Si . y , f. ? Si V a xUsJ :'Vir - "-I ' S J Mrs. R.

"There's more than one way of going to the front." philosophically cogitates a bit of brass filing that has come off of a shell en route to somewhere in France as it is picked up from the scrap heap and converted into part of a gold lace apron for the front of a debutante's dancing frock. It is hardly a comfortable thought, though, that sister particles of those gleaming in the meshes of golden lace that cover Beauty's satiny flesh at the ball may be gleaming in fragments of Bravery's tortured, torn and bloody flesh at the battle. At any rate, there is also a comfort ing thought as well which goes with this mettalurgic bond between muni tions and fashions. The same stuff that shells and laces are made of will make both Beauty's and Bravery's conquests complete and victorious. N. y. OFFICIALS IN row mm pun Board Head and School Supt. Go to Mat Over Mr. Wirt's Ideas. NEW YORK. Aug. 17. The contro versy between Superintendent of Schools Maxwell and President Willcox of the Board of Education brought forth a let ter yesterday by Mr .Maxwell in which he informed Mr. Willcox that he was amazed at his "making an on-slaught" on the public schools because one boy only had failed in a spelling test. The letter, made public by Mr. Max well, also informed Mr. Willcox that the most charitable view to take of an assertion made by him in his letter of July 20 to Mr. Maxwell was that it was written by one of his "numerous ad visers.' although above his own signa ture, Mr. Maxwell's letter was a rerly to 1X22 iimm Go.

Mr. Wlllcox's letter of July 20. which in turn had been prompted by a letter sent on July 12 by Mr. Maxwell to Mr. Willcox. The Gary school system, known also as the duplicate plan, was criticised by by Mr. Maxwell, although he was care ful to remind Mr. Willcox that ho has yet to pass final Judgment upon it, de- spite the assertion of the latter. "You Are the Aggressor." "On reading over my letter of July 12.' Mr. Maxwell wrote, "I be gleave to say that I find nothing in it to retract, except the statement that the Board of Education had directed the Superintend ent of Schools to investigate the work of the duplicate schools. "As to whether my letter, written to disabuse your mind of certain opinions, since you object to the word 'delusions.' contains matter that is unseemly, I leave it to a discerning public to de termine. To enable the public to reach a just decision, it is pertinent to state that, in this controversy, you are the aggressor. I had written a letter to Gov. Whitman asking him to veto the bill changing the educational system of New York City. Tou saw fit to write mo a letter criticising my argument to the Governor. Naturally I replied. "Surely it is the part of him who makes the attack to "play the game.' and not to attempt to wrap himself in an armor of official dignity against which he calls it 'unfitting" nnd 'un seemly' to use time honored weapons of controversy. Tou will permit me to in form you, however, sir. that you fears, as far as I am concerned, are ground less. No man can impair the dignity of the President of the Board of Educa tion except the incumbent of that high office." "Disgrace to Metropolis." Mr. Maxwell went on to warn Mr. Willcox that "to attempt to teach nearly 70,000 high school students in less than 40,000 sittings Is a disgrace to the metropolis of America and does & great wrong to successive generations of stu dents." "I am amazed," he continued, "to find that you. as President of the Board of Education, make wholesale onslaught on the work of the public schools, found ed upon no better evidence than 'a letter from the Vice President of an important industrial corporation,' and 'a report re ceived from one of the leading banks' regarding a spelling test given to a single boy. "I do not consider it necessary at the present time to enter into any elaborate defense of the public schools. They are good schools. They would be still bet ter schools and cause much greater sat isfaction if the Board of Estimate would give the money to build new school buildings when such are needed." Ask Yourself How Serve Your Country? You Can T DEFEATED (Special to The Times.) EAST CHICAGO. INU. Aug. 21 The fast East Chicago Tigers defeated All Stars of East Chicago by the score of 6 to 5. Andy Loda was on the slab for Tigers and held the slugging All Stars to three hits, while Buck was hammer ed for nine hits. Mike Shaffer. the Tigers' shortstop, hit the first home run at Gravers park. The feature of the game was the fielding of Alex Lula, the All Stars' outfieldt-r, who made one great catch which saved the game.
