NKW YORK, Sept. •22. — The
art colonies and salons of New
York have been i.tartled recently
with the beauty and originality of
the dresses of many of the women.
These wonderful creations are the
result of the application of
psychology to dress ilcsi-.n.
An American woman portrait
painter, Bertha Holley, driven
from Paris by the war, has con
vinced women that they should
wear clothes that express their
personality.
"An long as a woman be
lieves her first and last duty
Is to conform to a right model
and hence look exactly like
otlxer women, there is no psy-
«loilogy In dress for her be
cause her psyche isn't
awake," she says. "She
dresses by impi-ession Mi
slead of expression.
"The psychology of the
wardrobe begins when a
woman realizes dress in not
a mere protection against
wind* and rain and cold, but
an extension of her xery
personality.
"The psychology of dress Is
strikingly evidenced by one's re
action from her costume at a
fancy dress hall. Every woman
feels she comes under the Influ
ence of the personality she repre
sents* That's the secret of the
charm of fancy balls.
"In proportion as women are
personalities, they are repressed
by fashions, and the effect to een
sltlve women Is that of hypocrisy.
THEIR GOWNS ARE DEATH
MASKS.
"My mission Is to give woman
a wardrobe aa responaive to her
moods as a piano to the musician's
MONUMENTAL TASK,
BUILDING 16 CITIES
Tills is the second of a
series of article* giving Major
Starrett's personal account of
how the country's HI canton
ment camps INN lnuilt in
throe months. —Editor.
Major W. A. Starrett. upon
whose shoulders the burden of
building America's 16 draft army
cantonment camps fell, today out
lined for the United Press the
precautions his committee took lo
prevent graft or favoritism creep
ing into the work.
"On the committee," said Major
Starrett, "were C. W. Lundorff of
the Crowell, Lundorff, Little Co.
of Cleveland; M. C. Tuttle, gen
eral manager of the Aberthaw Con
struction Co. of Huston, and Fred
erick l4iw Olmstead.
"When we went into delibera
tions on the contracts, Lundorff
and Tuttle. because they were con
tractors, withdrew. Tuttle has
withdrawn his concern absolutely.
He won't touch a government con
tract.
"Olmstead and I called in Leon
ard Metralf of Boston and George
W. Fuller of New York, not to be
confused with the George Fuller
with the George A. Fuller Con
struction Co. We were the com
mittee that made these decisions
and reviewed the list of con
tractors.
"With regard to his personal
part in the work Major Starred
said: "There is too much misun
derstanding about the name of
Starrett flying around the coun
try. I was educated at the Univer
sity of Michigan and when I came
out I was employed by the George
A. Fuller Co. and worked along
with them for several years.
"In 1900 with my brother and a
man named Thompson we founded
the Thorn pson-Starre't Co. In
1913 I quit the company, as had
my brother, sold all my Interest
In It and joined my brother in the
practice of architecture. That is
my business."
A high government official said
today that irresponsible and dis
gruntled persons seem to have
been responsible for rumors of
graft and crookedness in the build
ing; of the camps. "I will discuss
that In a very familiar way," said
the official, "using as an Instance
the work of the lumber committee
which deserves the highest praise.
"Some officials thought the
committee was paying too much
for lumber. The talk got to the
point where one of our national
commercial organizations took cog
nisance of it.
"The president wrote a letter to
the government In which he men
tioned a certain man who purport
ed to have figured lower than those
of the committee.
"It was found that the man's
figures were from brokers bidding
out of thin air who had no more
conception of this thing than—"
Here the official threw up his
hands.
"This man with the unbelieva
ble low prices said he would sei
the price for the whole territory
involved at $20.
"Don't do that," said the repre
sentative of the territory, "you
will ruin our people."
"In that one discussion the low
prb'pd man showed how foolish
he was. When It came to quan
tity production he blew up. He
was dealing with brokers who
thought they could make a strike
with the government.
"The average price of the four
billion feet of lumber used In the
cantonments was $2(1.50. Four
billion feet represents the coun
try's output for a whole year."
Turning to the matter of bonus
es and penalties for the contract
ors Major Starrett said:
"This is one of the great bones
of contention In the contracting
business. We decided against It.
"Suppose we had given one man
a contract and agreed that^lf he
got his work done at a certain
time we would pay him so much
extra or If he did not finish at
a certain time we would deduct so
much a day from his earned per
centage.
"If we had had such a system
on these cantonments see what
would have happened. We would
have had- sn appeal to the man's
money making instinct, not to his
patriotism. He would have been
working for a bonus on an arbi
trary contract to which we could
not have added buildings or sub
contracted them.
"We have had to change con
tracts and plans all the way lons.
If we had had the bonus system
the contractors would have said:
'This Is not the work I contracted
to do. so you must extend my
time.' We could not shorten the
time under any circumstances.
You see how the government's
hands would have been tied under
that system."
NOTE: In onr next Issue
Tlie Time will print a story
of the actual work of build
ing the camps and giving In
teresling figures an to the
amount of mulerliil used, men
employed and other details.

a suit brought in the Thurston county superior court by the Union
Trust Co. of Seattle. The suit is brought agaiust W. E. Huiif-en
