Poli has made another one of this many promises good and Xcrk; .patrons are i to see the play at 1)11063 within the Jounds "Of -reason tfor-a-comedly of this1 type. ' In view of "the fact that th -piece Is one of the- more Teccnt New York and national successes and Its release for stock presentation of only a few days back there must naturally ibe a keen interest in knowing who have been ast in the roles assumed .by- Unorig inal company. In that first -company-it-will e Te-J Imembered there were Edith Talia ferro, Zelda Sears, Adele TRoHand, Otto Kruger, Ernest Stallard, Charles Brown, Charles Dow Clark, Elmer IC-randin, Edward Snader, Lincoln Plumer, Wtstcott Clark and Alf De-Coursey. The New Clothes A.-uit coat which, depends on its belt to fasten, is of a blue-green suede i melton and carries an old tuxedo -shawl collar enhanced by- an attached strap of self material on which small self buttons are iplaced, corresponding with sleeve trappings at wrist and others at cither side back. Peach- plays a leading part in trimming other-fabrics in differ ent shades, and hi tliis instance farther embellishes the broad self girdlo by facing ituid turningover at the -top as well as forming turnback: caffs. Lightweight novelty-coating fabrics in rich, light shades, made into earfs finished with silk f ring ends are smart to wear with velvet jackets. A,pekin model is slrown, one end of which may be pushed under to any de sired depth-to 'form a, hood, while the remaining end, is used for the scarf. A suiVfor business wear, has the skirt cut in two pieces. The coat is sbort-wnisted with, a blouse idea, a wide belt stitched in as part -of coat, with a short rippled back, and pointed front. A vest of striped yellow and white silk sets off the- navy serge effectively. One type of garment that strikes- bination, with almost ridiculously "French-waisted frocks children wore a few years ago. They are quite novel, and appeared o-catch the eye of observers. Smart Millinery MLAN WITH HUMP STRIPES Milan bodies are covered with different color satins with a tip of straw and vertical strips of straw radiating from the crown tip to the brim edge in a striped effect. This narrow hemp braid is used quite a bit either in this striped way of vertical stripes or in the horizontal striping about crowns of satin; then too, it is used as a flat trimming in flower patterns. SPORT SHAPES Matclasse sports shapes show facings of different color hemp trimmed in floss stitchings and straw wheels on-brim edges. Two large chrysanthe mums are placed on the. side brim of a large cloche of colored lisere, while cotttr shape of this calibre shows fruit bunches at the -crown front, RIBBONS FOR MOST TRIMMINGS Ribbon trims are prominent, either in chous, pleated fans, two-tone rib bons showing the colors in the twisting of the ribbon, or simple bands and bows. Facings are generally of contrasting color, and where straw is used " for the upper portion they generally consist of some material such as crepe de-chine, Georgette or satin, or vice versa, if the upper part is of fabric then the facing is in the straw. IN THE WORLD EMPIRE George Beban has a new actress in the cast of "Jules of the Strong Heart" in which he is appearing at the Em pire theatre today, namely Vivian Thew, the eleven months old daughter of Harvey Thew of the Paramount staff of scenario writers. Mr. Thew has long been anxious to have the babyhood of his daughter Immortaliz ed in celluloid and promptly when he was handed the script for Mr. Beban's forthcoming production, wrote in a part for a baby and succeeded in con vincing everyone in authority that his baby was the only one to play it.

Conforming to the fuel conservation orders the Red Cross rooms in the Warner Institute on Lafayette street, will not be open on Monday after noon or any of the succeeding Mon days that have been declared holidays. That is this closing plan will be ad hered to until further notice. The rooms will also be closed on Tuesday evenings. About fifty of the district leaders and workers of last year's financial campaign, together with members of the board of directors of the Bridge port Protective Association met yes terday afternoon with Mrs. Walter Wilmot at her pleasant , home on Stratford avenue. It was intended to make a house to house canvas again this year but after discussion it was felt that the end desired could be attained just as well by a circular let ter enclosing a report of last year's work. Miss Kathryn Hewitt, super intendent of the home on Myrtle avenue, spoke about the new home into which the association has moved recently and described the greatly in creased facilities this house offered over the one from which the associa tion moved. After the business had been disposed of there was a social hour. Tea was served with Mrs. C. B. Doremus presiding at the urns and the members of the board assisted in the dining room. The girls of the grade school clubs will have charge of the vesper ser vice at 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the Y. W. C. A., 1087 Broad street.

There will be a luncheon for board and committee members at 1 o'clock FUNERAL BOUQUET AND DESIGNS. JOHN RECK. & SON Rich Evening Wrap ; of Chinchilla Fur pH,BU",""'""1w1 1 Photo bv Here is an evening wrap developed entirely of chinchilla fur, a striking feature being the arrangement of the run" in the stripes to form a yoke and deep border. The entire garment is lined with flesh satin veiled with gray chiffon. on Monday, followed by the annual meeting of the board, with reports of the chairmen of committees and election of officers of the association for the coming year. The luncheon will be under the direction of Mrs. W. J. Nichols and the other members of the cafeteria committee and serv ed by Mrs. Idella Ellsworth, the ca7 feteria director. It will be a war menu. About seventy-five guests are expected. In spite of the fact that moving is planned for Thursday, most of the activities of the week will go on as usual. The educational classes have finished tjieir first term's work and are having their scheduled vacation week -between terms. The new rooms will give much better facilities for class work and it is hoped that the new term to open next week will have a large registration. The classes of fered are dressmaking, millinery, em broidery and knitting, cooking, Eng lish improvement, French, Spanish, nursing, dramatic expression English for foreigners. In order to meet the war emer gency and . to outline a general field for development of extension work with women in cities, the States Re lation Service of the United States De partment of Agriculture have pre pared a suggestive program which emphasizes immediate stress on the conservation of food, fuel, clothing and income. It is believed that the lines of effort briefly indicated here will make a special appeal to thought ful city women at this time, as av nues for national service, and as a means for the expression of the new patriotism that looks not only to the present but to the future. This program offers women a chance to help reduce the intensity of the human struggle for existence so that problems of mere subsistence may be solved in such a way as to leave a residue of strength, time and income for the development of high er intellectual and spiritual values. The text is the interpretation of con servation as "the greatest good to the greatest number for the longest period of time. Miss M. Estella Sprague, Home Economics Director of the Connecti cut Food Administration and Chair man of the Committee on Food Sup ply for the Women's Council of the National Defense, will explain this program at an open meeting to be held in the Art League rooms, Sta ples building, State street, Wednes day, Jan. 30th, at 3 o'clock. Miss Sprague has been connected with the Extension Department of the Connecticut Agricultural College for a number of years and has been loan ed by the college to the Food Ad ministration during the war emer gency. Miss Sprague is a wqman with a magnetic personality and her close connection with the United States Department of Agriculture previous to the war makes her ex planation of the conservation pro gram of great value. Wlien AVomen Do the Work. As. the great majority of the men in Bulgaria are serving under the col ors, during the past two years most of the work on the farms in Bulgaria has been done by women, according to Consul-General Dominic I. Mur phy in Sofia, but both harvests were very abundant. During the Balkan war the farm work was likewise done by the women, and m that year the crops proved to be excellent. This incident brought forth the following Bulgarian saying, "The lord blesses the harvest when the women do the work." household hints r A cheap new dustpan makes a splendid pie lifter for taking pies from the oven. , To sweep a carpet without much dust: Wet newspapers, tear in pieces ana scatter over the carpet.

This inter polation of the military idea into , the scout movement at first sight appears to be at variance with previous con ceptions of the scout plan, which since its inception has been oposed to mili- tarism in any of its phases. It is not, however, with the Idea of preparing its corps for military service that drill has been undertaken, but simply as a measure of producing greater ef ficiency. '' Military drill makes for instantane ous obedience and response and ulti mate efficiency, and these are essen tials to the best team work demand ed of the Girl Scouts of today. All play, as play, has ceased in Girl Scout organizations of the country, and ef forts are all being directed toward serious war work. "W Oman's work cut down to girl size" is the way It has been expressed. Out of the rec ords which the girls are making to day will be built the homes of the future. The Girls' Scout organization in Washington is already co-operating with the government in several of its departments. It is linking up with the States . Relations Service of the Department of Agriculture in the Boys' and Girls' club work of the lat ter; with the Food Administration in tne preparation of, and giving , in struction in, war-emergency foods; ir the . Bureau of Education in the mat ter of Americanization of aliens; and with the Department of Labor in as sisting to bring ; the jobless men and women to the bureau of that depart ment which seeks to fit each man and each woman to his or her right place in the national service of today. ETIQUETTE If you are not sure that evening dress ns to be worn at the entertain ment you are going to attend, it is proper to ask about the costutme for the occasion. Edward People who conform strict ly to convention maintain that i young man ebxmld never ask a young lady to marry him anywhere except ing in her father's house, anil surely that is the best and most suitable set ting for a proposal of marriage. How ever, young people are so unconven tional and generally independent these days that the question is likely to be "popped" at any convenient time and place. There is one rule, nevertheless, which a man of fine sensibilities will instinctively observe he will not ask a young lady to marry him while she is in his home whether she is making a visit or merely spending the evening. After being accepted, the young man should go to the girl's father at the earliest possible moment and ask his consent to the marriage, at the same time giv- r an account of his finances and his prospects.

M'ENELLYS HERE MONDAY. Prof. Quilty has arranged for two big dances at the Colonial ball room in Fairfield avenue for Monday after noon and evening. The first will be from 2:30 to 6 o'clock, and the second from 7:30 to 10 o'clock in the even- ng. The Singing McEnellys, favor ites here, will be the attraction at both sessions.

Pleats are used on these models and are laid in groups and add to the style lines. A 48 inch coat length is being used for the early season's models. One model in moss green especially design ed for a walking coat has a patent leather belt fastening at the waist line. At each side of the back the fullness The linings of the coast are gay, but blend in with the general color scheme. Some of the coats have only a shoulder lining, others, are lined to the waistline, and others are lined throughout. One coat having back pleats which must lie flat had the lining finished all around but leaving the pleated back unlined. Gabardine, Poiret twill, and serge, as well as shepherd's plaids are used in these mod els. This latter material is used for a suit that can be worn for golfing or w Iking, but is cut and made for extra freedom which, is demanded in an outdoor suit. "Vests, whether of mannish cut shades,, impress one as a leading feature in practical suits shown for South ern and spring wear the coming season.

THIS IS THE DAY OF CHOCOLATE IN , OREGON "Chocolate Bar Days," when con tributions are taken to buy chocolate bars for the Oregon boys in the ser vice, is the latest plan of college girls at the Oregon State Agricultural Col lege. Women of the Home Economics Department of this school are also supplying boxes of food to the col lege boys who have gone, at a re markably small price. They have sent 200 boxes filled with war cake, fruit, confections, nuts, popcorn balls. oatmeal oookies, and salted peanuts, to the Oregon men at the cost of 20 cents a box. The candies were all made of sugar substitutes, such as honey and corn syrup. A card index of the 1,000 University of Washington men now in the Army and Navy is being compiled by girls at the University of Washington in Seattle, no that the former students may be supplied with the college daily paper. This file of college boys in service is) in working order at many of the colleges. Promotions, changes of addresses from camp to camp, etc., are noted in order that weekly letters, in adidtkm to personal mail, will toe sure to reach them. FOR HOMELY HANDS Washing the hands in a bowl of warm milk every night is a good bleach for redness. Another bleach is made from lemon juice one ounce, honey one ounce, and perfume one ounce. If you wish to make your fingers longer and more tapering, soft en them with warm water or olive oil and then massage them with a long slow stroke from the wrist to the ends of the fingers. Then take each finger separately between the thumb and forefinger of the other hand. Pinch the fingertips gently at the sires, at the same time drawing the finger out from the hand. If your hands have a congested swollen appearance, with distended veins, it is sometimes a sign that you have some article of clothing too tight for your own good. It may be a sleeve, collar or belt, perhaps. If this is not the case, the trouble is that the blood rushes to your hands too much. Form the habit of holding the hands up as much as possible instead of c'own at the sides. This will relieve the blood vessels of their extra burden. MADEIN CONNECTICUT WAR INTERVIEWS WITH WOMEN Statements by prominent Connecticut women on vital war topics have been 'secured by the Connecticut State Council of Defense. This newspaper has made arrangements with the Council of Defense to pub lish these interviews, and they will appear four times each week..

The "Brownie" members of the Girl Scouts of Washington spend a portion of their time each week in making these trench candles, which are handed to the Red Cross for dis tribution. Trench candles are made by cutting cut eight full length column strips from a, newspaper. The first strip is roiled as tightly as possible, then the other six strips are rolled carefully around this foundation, one by one, until' a compact cylinder is formed. This is tightly tied with thread, then it is boiled for half an hour in par- ainn, wnen it is taKen out ana cool ed. When it has become cold it is treated to another boiling bath in the paraffin for another half hour, and when cooled for the second time it is ready for use. FOREIGN WOMEN OF GREAT AID IN WAR WORK That foreign women in the United States are volunteering to work for Uncle Sam and the Allies is evident from the registration taken by the Woman's Committee of the Council ' of National Defense. There have been many reports of Italian women doing Red Cross work or buying Liberty bonds. Polish women, Russians, Por tuguese and Japanese offer all sorts of service. The Chinese were a fea ture in Chicago's registration. But the last report is possibly the most striking of all, for in Idaho, Basques are volunteers. There never was such a test of our melting pot as this which is on us now," says the Woman's Committee, "and the response of the many aliens' who are with us has teen as touch ing as it is magnificent." For chopping potatoes in the spider use an empty spice can or cocoa can which has been washed clean. Make three or four holes in the bottom and it is ready for use.
