Miss Jane Brown
Spokane Girl Wins Vogue Position in Paris in Competition with
Hundreds of Artists- Manito Methodist Women Plan Style Show
By Pauline Suing Bloom.
Several years ago a little, dark-haired girl in her
middle teens made up her mind that she was going
to be an artist, The other day she came home from
Paris still in her early twenties, having financed
herself throngh her art work here, to a yvear at the
Academie Americaise, and having earned enough
while o student there to take a three months’ trip
through Italy, Holland, Belgium and Germany be
fore coming home. It seems a distinet credit to
Spokane that one of its danghters should be se
lected to make the color sketches for the Vogue
magazine, ont of the hundreds of girls who would
aspire to that work, but Jane Brown, the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence H. Brown, Sllll Wall
street, got the position,
A brilliant high schoo) student and a graduate of
the fine arts school of the University and a stu
dent at the Fine Arts league in New York under
Charles Hawthorne, of Washington, Miss Brown
sensed quickly the value of her work in the com
mercial world. More and more, she believes, good
advertising is to play its part in the suceessful mar
keting of any product, and art must be the guide n
the building of any advertisement. Though an ad
vertisoment is not illustrated, the compelling ad
vertisement is perfect in its principle of design and
coordination, and the successful writer of adver
tisements must at least have the sonl of an arfist,
it she has missed the special training,
In addition to her work for Vogue, Miss Brown
did some work for the Fairchild's Publishing com
A rare treat for most girls, it was her work to go
to tea at the Ritz several days a week and there
sketeh the gowns of the famous continental women
who set the styles in Paris both for Europe and
The American well-dressed woman is always
outstanding even in Paris, Miss Brown said.
While she seldom adopts the extreme styles worn
by her more daring Parisienne sisters, who, he
cause of their petite build, “get away with mur
der” tfiguratively speaking) hecanse of her health
and athletic bearing, she is gradually taking the
leadership away from Paris.
French girls of the better claiss envy the Ameri
can girl. They, still in the hands of the chaperon,
dream of the freedom, the courage, the initiative
and the ambition of the hundreds of American girls
there studyving to make careers for themselves in
their chosen lines of endeavor. And each vear they
acquire just a little more freedom of thought and
action and just o bit more of the independenece
which makes the world so dear to the heart of
American women and which makes them so loyal to
their own heloved country,
Though Miss Brown demonstrated that she conld
make a living in Paris, home pulled on her heart
strings. After all, there is no place quite like Spo
kane! Other parts of the world have a littie of this
and a fittle of that, but here, God seems to have
created the perfect setting for life in its fullest
sense. We have the best of all that any other city
has to offer, ommitting mere size, which, once a
city is in the hundred thousand class, is meaning
less. Here we have our lakes and our mountains.
our freedom from storms and ecarthquakes, ex
fremes of heat and cold, wonderful roads and mar
velous hotels. And people - real people, onr
friends, That ig all earth has to offer. if we are
worldly wise enough to realize it.
So Miss Brown will join the ranks of the business
vomen of Spokane, specializing in commercial art
work, a field of endeavor especially adapted to
women, for in this Twentfeth century all advertis.
ing except a very limited field must make a spacial
appeal to women if the product it sets forth i< to
be moved quickly and advantageously,

her health failed and she finds her present occupa- ‘

she will have all she can do to supply the demand.
That is why “the popcorn lady” eagerly awaits the

And don’t you love the rooms that knows

In such a room I love the huc

An air of camaraderie;
The hum of voices, deep and true;
Old friends, old songs, old books
