Everything From the Tops of Our Tango Heads to
the Tips of Our Tango Shoes, Carry Out the
Tangled Tango of Tangoism.
By Margaret Mason.
(Written for the United Press.)
There was a tango maiden
And she had a tango smile,
She wore a tango bonnet
And she danced a tango mile:
She met a tango teacher
And became his tango wife;
And ever since they've lived, 1 hear,
A tangled tango life.
NEW YORK, Feb. 6.
-There's a tang
in the tango that lias gotten into ev
eryone's blood.
The tango is every
thing, and everything is tango.
Strong men and fair actresses have
had stronger cigars and weaker per
fumes named after them but nowadays
everything from tobacco to toothpaste,
from hardware to haberdashery is
done in the name of the tango. Cer
tain it is that the little milliners and
dressmakers and bootmakers and cor
seEleres and hairdressers and jewel
ers have gotten busy and brought
forth enough tango togs to cover us
frpm the tops of our tango heads to
the Ups of our tango toes.

New Tango Hair.
First and topmost of all is the new
tango hair which is of the most hectic
of hues dubbed tango red. Perfectly
good tango hair may also be done in
other equally riotously radient shades
such a cobalt blue, mauve, nile green,
or orange. Then your tango dyed
locks should be done in the tango cof
fure which means that it must all he
loosely waved, drawn neatly back
from the face and the back hair fast
ened and tucked under at one side of
the head with a jeweled tango comb
or two jeweled tango pins. Perch on
top of ail is one of those fascinating
little lace tango caps exploited by Mrs.
Vernon Castle and the tango head is
fashionably complete.
The tango corset should be the start
and foundation of your tango toilette
de luxe. The accepted model is of
silk tricot with but one bone in the
front and back. It allows the figure
full play and yet is so admirably con
structed that it confines and holds
well in Us proper place any undue em

Over this foundation you may take
one of three choices. The tango pan
talets which start from the waist and
fasten sniigiy with elastic about your
ankles, the tango garter pantalets
which are dainty lace and chiffon ruf
fles fastened to either knee with a
satin garter, or the dainty lace in
crusted tango petticoat, scant and
diaphanous and slit at either side to
allow your dip and glide full sway.
The favored tango frock of the mo
ment is of softest taffeta. It almost
invariably boasts a tunic a la Minaret
although a model simply dubbed "tan
go" which is being exploited by a well
known Paris firm has a decided pan
nier in its first and original form.
Tango stockings are aglow witli

Women on Grand Jury Like Work
Well Will Keep it Up.
REDWOOD, Cal., Feb. 6.—Califor
nia's first women grand jurors, those
of San Mateo county, like their work
so well that they are going to keep
up. even if they must do so in an un
official capacity. As a preliminary
step, plans were completed today for
the organization of a county «tornmlt
tee of women to investigate' everything
that looks like it needs investigation.
The leader of the movement is Mrs.
McCroskey, who was a member of the
jury. The other jurettes are also in
cluded as are many well-known San
Mateo county women who had not the
good fortune to serve on the inquisi
torial body. While the women's future
investigations will be extra-legal, the
leaders say they will be extremely
thorough and that by the time they are
concluded San Mateo county will be
thoroughly purified. Judge Buck sug
gested such an organization when he
discharged the jurettes recently.

PORTLAND, Feh. 6.—The supreme

difficulty in matching players and ar
ranging their handicaps.
Bed Cross Worker Made Some Startl
ing Discoveries While Investigat
ing Conditions in Fight Zone.
HOUSTON, Tex., Feb. 6.—The sc
heret is out. The public long ago be
gan to aeept as a joke published re
ports that hundreds were killed in
Mexican battles, for the number in
variably dwindled down to a score or
so. But thei'e is a reason.
The exaggeration of killed and
wounded in battle is directly due to
the Mexicans' laziness. The Mexican,
both federal and rebel he it known,
with few exceptions, carry the small
est army rifle in the world—a .
bre. Some carry a 30-30. The Mex
icans dislike to carry heavy guns or
heavy ammunition and these light
rifles are no burden. The Mexican
loves to fight, but when it comes to
marching and carrying a gun, that is
work, and he wants to get out of as
much of that as possible. There is
no glory in carrying a heavy gun.
This discovery was made by Will
iam H. McGrath, representing the Na
tional Red Cross society. He found
that Mexicans who had fallen in bat
tle suffered from very small bullet
wounds and further investigation re
vealed the fact that they carried the
lightest weapons possible. McGrath
has just returned from a trip along
the border and throughout north Mex
ico where he saw much fighting. Dur
ing the day of the heaviest fighting at
Uuevo Laredo when the rebels tried to
capture the town. 125 "fatally'' wound
2 cali
ed soldiers who were counted as dead,
were cared for by the Red Cross
corps. Only four of the Mexicans died
as the wounds of the majority were
slight. This is about the average
percentage of, deaths of those cared
foi, aserts McGrath, which leads to
the reports being sent out that a great
many are killed,
fall and they are
stretchers and the correspondents and
even the generals are honestly
reived. So when one reads a head
line: "200 Die in Mexican Battle" it
may be generally taken for granted
that there is one cipher too many.
This has been the case in every Mex
ican battle in the last several years.

WASHINGTON, Feb, 6.—-AVomen are

and depositing their spare change in
stead in Uncle Sam's postal savings
banks, according lo a report today in
the hands of postoffice department of
ficials. The report was submitted by
the postmaster at Pittsburgh. He
says that a woman recently went to
his postoffice, pulled $2000 out of lier
stocking ,and asked for a pass book
from the postal savings department.
Failure of banks is also benefiting
the postal savings service, according
to Third Assistant Postmaster General
Dockery. In cities where hanks have
failed recently, many bank depositors
hare opened new accounts with the
postoffiees. Five days after a run on
the United States Trust company in
this city last November, 147 new ae
counts with deposits of $15,650 were
opened with the postal savings ac
