are negligent "Of the needs and the difficulties of others only because they rarely are Help All brought to war at* tent ion. Whenever people clearly see and understand the trou bles of their fellow creatures, they rarely fall to help* them. I was in San Francisco within a week of the great fire that drove thousands of people from comfortable homes to seek shelter in tents beyond the fire tone. Working ón a newspaper I had an ample opportunity to see how help was coming in from all sides, and to observe how thfe rich forgot their pride and, taking off their coats, labored twelve hours a day till all that had been driven from their houses were supplied with shelter and food. This is one of the fine traits in hu man nature. It takes cover during the average run of events, but it comes out when there is a call for aid. In Carl Sandburg's fine biography of Lincoln he tells how in his early life one of the greatest of men and of Pres idents could never endure to see a hog in distress. The hogs would go down to the creek to dribk, and become mired in the thick mud, which, had they not been helped, would soon have drawn them down to their deaths. Then the tall lanky prairie youth, driving past and observing them, would pull off his coat and sometimes the remainder of his attire, and by exerting his tremendous strength, pull the squealing porkers out on high land. He smiled happily while they waddled away to safer footing. Little in that time did Lincoln, or anyone else, dream that before so many years he would be rescuing a great pa-. tion from destruction. Today there are many reasons for mutual helpfulness in the world. It is a time to scrap selfishness and self-seeking, and do all that can be done to keep going the movement which is to bring the world back to its. feet. The vast majority of the people in America understand this. The concerted efforts that are being made to restore better conditions is the proof. There will be sacrifices and hard ships. But Jé ike man In this wide CQuntry who, while struggling himself uill not reach out a hand toward a neigh bor who is in a worse position than he? Millions are starting slowly back up the hill. And I believe as they toil upward they will find their neighbors reaching out to helpthem, and finding in the practice of sympathy a satisfac tion which will more than repay them for all that they have done or are doing. In the days of my youth there were men who could not afford laundry bills and who wore what were known as "dickeys." Dickeys were shield shaped devices ef Jinen or cotton which could be used to cover up the tri- False angular space which 1 Fronts begins where the vest leaves off. •trt they were not very satisfactory. They had a tendency to pull out at the corners, permitting the public to view contemptuously the soiled white or whitish shirt underneath. They saved laundry bills for a while to be sure—though in most cases it was the toil of the poor wives or mothers at home that they saved, but they were known throughout the town to be poor pretenses at respectability. And as soon as a man's financial con dition improved a little he abandoned them and went back on the old hard boiled standard. But the "dickeys" supplied a lesson to some of the people in my old town which more than atoned for the embar rassment that they sometimes cost. Their wearers discovered that sham was no good, that they might better have donned the old red flannel shirts which were worn by the railroad boys and truck drivers than to attempt to be something that they were not. This Is not an argument in defense of the "snappy dresser" or of the boy who keeps his mother at the washboard so she can save money to buy her off spring the evening suit he says he must own in order to keep up with the pa rade. It is merely an effort to impress on my readers that, while rags may not be "royal raiment when worn for vir tue's sake," it is better to stand for what you are instead of what you would like to be, or what, heaven will ing—you mean to be when you get your chance. Be what you are* and don't be ashamed of it. Better it if you can, and as rapidly as you can, if yon want to be some thing better. But don't use false fronts or pre tenses. Even If they were not found out they would be bad for your character. And, believe me, they always will be found out, probdbly at some time when the discovery will embarrass you almost beyond your power to stand up under It. Wear a bold front always.

The taffeta trimmed bonnet to the upper right In the picture dem oust rates this point to a nicety. The big bow at the throat is of self-saiue taffeta as the bow on the bonnet. Mil liners are all enthusiasm over the taf feta (plain or plaided) neck-bow and hat "sets" which are selling at first sight.

Narrow at the sides is this type with a startling forward streamline sweep of the brim. To In rerprei the very quintessence of chic it must be tilted at a rakish angle down over the eyes. The smartness of these forward-brim hats is added unto with novel crown effects achieved via pleats and folds, eccentric peaks and spiral drapes often surmounted with amusing feather fancies or perky ribbon cocardes. Two models of this suggestion are illustrated below In the picture. The felt to the left is olive green with black and olive feather fancy.

If you register In the sailor-conscious sorority It will be worth your while to tour the shops and see what's doing in the way of nifty exponents of this type. Iir Paris the low crowned sailor of shiny black straw is a big favorite. To wear the new sailors properly they must be saucily tilted over the eyes, with a veil to complete the picture. Loyal to the beret are you? Well, fashion is willing, providing a very new look Is achieved via a subtle drape or a topknot trim or a use of a novel fabric combination and always a little veil for the sake of chic. A matching scarf also adds a voguish note. ©. Western Newspaper Union. •y/ Szebenyei József, i„ 102 West 80 Street. New York, N. Y.
