NEW YORK, Sept. 15.?There
Is a man in New York who knows
what you are going to wear before
you wear it, who buys it so that
you can buy it, who knows what
you-like and don't like before you
do?who keeps about two jumps
ahead of your pocketbook and
your taste in styles.
Ho is Alfred Fantl. He spends
more than .$1,000;000 a day as j
resident buyer of several hundred!
department stores and specialty,
shops scattered over the United
State. He ought tc* be?and is?
an expert on styles.
"Extremely long skirts are
merely a brief fad. Skirts are
getting shorter again?the proper
length will be aljout nine inches
from the ground.
"Women can't wear long dresses
with bobbed hair.
"Bobbed hair is here to stay;i
switches now being sold are only
"The day of the petticoat and
shirtwaist is over permanently.
"Modern dancing has taken the
steel out. of corsets.
"Earrings will be popula'r a
long time. Few women know how
to choose the correct barrings; i
short ones are the better.
"Dresses with capes and coats
have the call over suits." !

things, just as he knows about
prosperity and dull times?by the
temper of the enormous buying
public he represents.
With a corps of expert buyers.
Fantl has an organization that
dLrectly or indirectly handled
$411,000,000 in merchandise purchased
last year. ,His own buyers
alone bought $50,000,000 worth, in
addition to the purchasing power
the organization represents.
"When you buy for retail stores
you have your finger on the public's
prosperity pulse," says Fanlt
"Resident buying is a new business,
a development of the last
few years.
"More and more merchants are
coordinating their buying, closely
following our system in which
th0 enormous purchasing power
of chain store method cuts down
Filntl predicts a steady decrease
of retail prices during the next!
five years. He says business con-|
ditions throughout the country
are improving, with only sporadic
injury from the coal and railroad
"People are down to a better
merchandising level," he said.
"During "our war prosperity we
bad a luxury splurge; now ibere
is a larger luxury class, and cartain
things that used to be luxuries
are now considered nec-ssitioa
?such as silk stockings?but generally
people are buying a better
class of goods."
-Ninety-five per cent of th4
goods FantL's. corps buys is for
women. Here's the way hc divides
up the buying dons by women.
40 per cent dry goods, cotton
goods and piece goods.
15 per cent hosiery and underwear.

though there are fads. Men are

DETROIT, Mich., Sept. 16:?
In responae to rumors with regard
to the closing ot the Ford .

G. Llebold, personal secretary of f,
Henry Ford, today issued the fol-, &
lowing statement:
"Mr. Ford's statement of sev-j ,!
eral weeks ago that all plants H
would close September 16. still | stands
I believe; he has made no: statement
to the contrary and If \
he has any new plans he surely
will issue a new statement."
Asked concerning reports that
9,000 men were dismissed last
night the secretary declared he
had no knowledge ot such an action.
The 70,000 employes of the

mlnuto statemont from Mr. Ford
would keep them on the job. Mr.
Liebold said there was no change
in the coal situation so far as the
Ford company was concerned but
intimated Mr. Ford might make
a statement later in the day that
wpuid quiet rumors regarding the
closing ot the plants.
