THE E ERNAL SKIRT QUESTION
Hobble Affairs Are Declined by Many,
Yet Majority Follow Fash
The question of skirt width is a
problem that looms large on the hori
zon of the fashion world just now.
Straight line effects have held sway
for many seasons, and this season
garments rather reached the limit of
straightness by reason of the decree
able time was had by those present, activity among women, due to the de-
verunheard-ownarroy basis of. a of
ing party Saturday evening. Ice cream skirt. Coming as it did immediately
and cake was served and a most enjoj
mand for their service in all sorts of
war work, the vogue for ultra narrow
skirts attracted more attention than
it ordinarily would, and many women
have firmly declined to accept the
hobble affairs. However, the majority
of women follow fashion's decrees
whether they really like them or not,
and skirts not more than a yard in
width are everyday sights on the
streets of most cities.
A foreword from Paris announces
that very full skirts"are looming up
there, and there is a very strong indi
cation that when fall styles put in
their appearance the little, tight-skirt
ed affairs of the present season will
serve merely as foundations if any re
modeling is to be done.
An advance guard of the full skirt

MAKING STRENGTH FROM MILK.
Plenty of milk is one of the simplest
ways of improving the general health
of children, authorities believe, and
home demonstration agents of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture and the State colleges are making
special efforts to create public interest
so that every child will get his share.
In some cities, where many children
have been found undernourished and
undersized, milk is served in the
schools. In 19 Indianapoli3 schools
2,000 children have been served a half
pint of milk each school day during the
past year. The milk is delivered at the
schools in individual half pint bottles.
A hole is punched in the cap of the
bottle and a straw is inserted. The
chidren help themselves as they march
pa3t, and afterwards they return the
empty bottles to the rack. This work
in Indianapolis is maintained by the
parent-teacher clubs, but it is largely
self-supporting. The majority of the
children pay 3 cents a day, or 3% cents
for milk and crackers. Those who can
not pay get the milk free. The child-
ren are measured and weighed, and the
chart of each child is kept in his school
room, so he may see Whether he is up
to normal or below. All the children
are much interested in weighing what
they should. The teachers report" a
marked improvement in the schoolwork
and want the work continued. The
Indiana home demonstration agents co
operate with the county welfare com
mittees in weighing and measuring tt*e
