AND OPERATE STORE.
A group of energetic girls attending
a T. W. C. A. Industrial Camp : in
Arkansas last month organized and
operated a co-operative store with a
working capital of $80.00, the one
dollar shares being bought by any of
the girls Interested in the scheme.
The scheme was directed by the In
dustrial Secretary who thought this a
good way to give the girls business
experience as well as to supply con
veniences to the campers. The store
carried In stock all the articles of
toilet and dress usually left behind by
the feminine camper anything from
a toothbrush to a bathing suit. The
organization had officers, a board of
directors and purchasing agents.
Eighty girls subscribed $1.00 each t
the scheme. Supplies were purchased
In a nearby town. A regulation set
of books was kept and slips Were
made out for each person. During
two weeks $160.00 worth of goods
were disposed of and a net profit of
$40.00 waa realized and distributed
among tha subscribers according to
the stock purchased during that
period. The director got a return of
$2.11 which was immediately Invested
In mueh-needed tennis shoes.
HEAIrn AND BEAimr ARE
REWARDS FOR SWIMMCTG
"Regular vigorous swimming Is the
best aid to beauty and health that
girls can find," says a Y. W. C. A.
swimming director of New Tork City.
"The exercise is easy, requires lktle
strength and therefore does not de
velop large, ugly musces as some
sports do. It sends the blood racing
through the body and thus removes
blotches on the. skin and other un
sightly effects of a sluggish circula
tion. It soothes the nerveg and does
away with frowns and discontented
looks And sleeplessness a great
enemy of good-looks is unknown to
the good swimmer."
Women and girls are taking an In
creased interest in swimming, accord
ing to reports of T. W. C. A. swim
ming pools In some of the larger
cities, Thls is the time of all sports
but the water sports hold first place.
In one V. W. C. A. pool In New York
City during the month of July, 4,01j
girls were registered for swimming
lessons, 1,084 for dips. Winter figures
show an average of 2,000 monthly.
Ribbons are assuming large propor
tions for fall, ranging from the nar
rowest to the very wide heavy moire

"We women are all jubilant over
the triumphant of the Woman's Suf
frage Amendment," stated Mrs. H.
Willard Fleck, the Fairfield County
chairman of the Republican Women.
"As soon as the ratification is made
sure, work will begin immediately jo
register tne women oi mis uiuy m
order to make them voters" contin
ued Mrs. Fleck. "Our organization is
in fine condition to enable the women
to engage themselves in 'active work
at once." "
"It seems too good to be true, after
so many years of hard work," says
Mrs. William T. Hincks, chairman of
the Democratic Women. "The feeling
of triumphant should not be appar
ent, but the spirit should be one of
progress toward civilization," contin
ued Mrs. Hincks.
There will -be no public celebrations
in this city by local suffragists be
cause, just as Mrs. Hinck3 has said
above, the feeling should not foe one
of triumph but one of calm, steady
and sure progress toward civilization
with a square deal for the women of
the world. ,
Already the National American
Suffrage association has declared and
emphasized itself ready to meet any
attacks which may be made against
the amendment. One of the prom
inent members of the association said
yesterday: "It is expected and hoped
that the Secretary of State will pro
claim the amendment at once as rat
ified. This would seem to be auto
matically inevitable. Even if the
amendment is to be the subject of
later attacks, the Secretary of State's
immediate task is the proclamation.
Without the proclamation there is no
amendment to attack.
"The ionization of the world is
saved. The mothers of America will
stay the hand of war and repudiate
those who trifle with a great prin
ciple." WHAT DO YOU OWE
' A vast number of people seem to
think that God and the world are
under great obligations to them, and
that the world owes them a living
without any return, service whatso
ever. ..'." j
Not long ago a young woman said
that she did not consider that she
owed the world anything; she was
thrust into it without being consult
ed, and that she proposed to get what
ever she could out of it. She was going
to do this with the least possible ef
fort on her part and did not feel un
der the slightest obligation to the
past. . . .
Did you ever think, if you are one
of the idle ones, what you really owe
the world for the privilege of living
in it? Did you ever think that all the
civilization of the world have been
working for you through all the ages,
up to the present moment, that you
are reaping the harvest of hard-work
ing, sacrificing and suffering sowers
who have preceded you? The woman
who does not feel that she owes a
tremendous debt to the past is cer
tainly not made of the right kind of
Everything that has gone before
you enters into your life and time.
Many lives have been lived in solitude
and misery in order to develop sci
ences which are today . the beacon
lights of, the world. Just suppose the
woman who made that remark waa
called upon to produce even a lead
pencil, sheet of paper, pair of shoes,
or a suit of clothes. There is toil,
struggle and sacrifice in everything
you purchase or enjoy. Wherever you
go, tens of thousands have been pre
paring the way and getting things
ready for you. and yet you consider
that you do not owe the world any
thing! The idle man or woman is like a
piece of machinery. As soon as it is
idle, rust and decay set in and begin
to destroy its usefulness. Work is the
inexorable law of growth. There is no
getting away from it. The Cr"eator put
an enormous penalty on idleness
weakness, destruction and annihila
tion. "Use or lose" is -natures edict.
Panne velvet, and hatter's plush,
with panne .predominant, are used in
a large percentage of hats.
Large shapes are very . evident, es

Fluted and pleated brims are used
on large shapes.
Lacquered wings, quills and coq

This is developed in all colorings and

are used. ' '

NEW " WRINKLES"
IN STRAIGHT LINE
With the exception of several num
bers which follow semi-fitted redin
gote lines, the latest models leading
department stores have added to their
line favor wraps on straight lines.
The manner in which the wrappy
effects are obtained, while adhering
to the straight silhouette, is the
cause of many new "wrinkles." .' One
number for instance, in navy blue
duvetyn is so cut that the sides,
when arms are outstretched, are like
full length batwings, which flap for
ward with the arms movement (for
the sleeves are part of them), and- so
in a seemingly envelope-fashion form
a sharp side line, even though the
wrap is there. Flying squirrel bands
edging this arrangement add to its
softness and correspond with the col
The unique armhole which is not
exactly melon shape but wide and
oval, gives sufficient fullness to an
other model which also has 'shirring
arranged high across the center back.

boxy at either side back and front,
with the fronts swerving toward the
center and taper, in order . to .. stide

CONTRASTING PLEATS GIVE
Near tha tag end of summer one's
wardrobe is apt to need a bit of re
furnishing, and an over-Mouse is the
most practical and the most suitable
thing for this season. Of course, you
have a number of blouses of this type,
and are perhaps at a loss for a new
Do you have a blouse in your collec
tion whHjh is trimmed with box pleats
ot a contrasting color. i noi, nere is
just the new design you are looking
for. -The pleats are really not pleats
at all, you know. They are merely se
parate straps which stimulate pleats.
The oval neckline depends upon the
straps alone to cover the shoulders.
Notice the very attractive way of
treating the slits and the plain but
very smart sleeves.
This design will look welf in dark
blue crepe de chine with the straps
and the bands around Vne sleeves in
mustard yellow. The buttons' are cov
ered with self-material, and the straps
are embroidered in light blue silk.
How would you like the blouse

With this the embroidery should be
done in browns and the new rust col
Pongee, voile, satin, sports silk and
charmeuse are materials- which will
look well with this design.

Dear Sir: '
I beg to acknowledge the receipt
of your courteous ' letter informing
me that His Majesty, the King of
Italy, has conferred upon me the
degree of "Cavaliere" ofr; the order
of the' Crown of Italy. .:
I very deeply appreciate Hiis great
honor and I beg that you convey to
the Office of Foreign Affairs in Rome,
and through it to the King, my dis
tinguished consideration and gratitude-
Whatever I- have done for my fel
low Americans of Italian extraction in
Bridgeport and Connecticut has been
in reality little, and amply repaid by
their generous, friendship. I cannot
but feel this distinction to be quite
beyond my deserts. As I have come
to-know better the- Italian people, I
have learned to respect their charac
ter and especially to love their quali
ties of heart.
They are filling a useful and a very
necessary place in American life.
''And they so carry themselves that
they are making Americans every
where better acquainted with Italy
and that inevitably means bringing
Italy and America closer together in
bonds of international concords
Every American understands and
will ever acknowledge the never to be
requited, debt we Italy for her
service In the war. Italy sacrificed
much but she won unperishable glory
for herself and she had large share
In keeping living upon earth the
ideals of humanity.
May these two great countries go
forward together forever , allies in
peace and in national honor, promot
ing justice and protecting liberty!

and will notify you upon my return
on September 10th and will there
after, at your pleasure, receive, with
pride, from your hand the insignia of
With considerations of highest esteem,'-
I beg to remain, ..
