Women In Gel


By Katherne Fitch
There should be a wider cooperation'
between the so-called scientists who
predict, or rather prognosticate the
future state of the weather and the
artists and designers who dictate fu-,
ture styles. Much could be accom-
plished, certainly, if the creators of
the gown knew with some degree of,
sureness the prevailing temperature
for the ensuing season but this is not
to be. The thermometer varies so
considerably from the faithful reports
of "our weather man" that the whole
;idea seems futile anyway. Still it
would be a highly practical innova-
tion,--the real millenium in fashion.
Until. then, however---
For summer, whether the season
prove to be a continuation of winter at
a slightly higher temperature, or a
veritable inferno with the thermo-
meter at 99, the fashion mentors have
provided the costume. Your spring
wardrobe has ben selected and now
there is another dress problem for
you to solve. Protest that you are
weary of eternal thoughts of style but
be honest and admit that you do en-
joy it.
Summer frocks, summer wrapa,
summer costumes, are a replica of
those for spring but they are differ-
ent,-lighter, softer, finer,-oh, much
more fascinating. One may rave poet-
ically on the delights of springtime
but there is something about summer
more deeply artistic and it lends it-
self wholly to dress. The line is
somewhat the same, and the fabrics

wardrobe. They are made of anything
and everything from handkerchief I

linen to heavy kasha. The dress is
usually of soft light material and the
straight coat of heavier weave. They
are cut on straight lines with a single
fastening or, perhaps, no fastening at,
all. The coat with the flare has not
attained any great popularity since its
introduction in the spring mode butj
it is still making a persistent attemptl
for recognition. It is as difficult to
supercede the silhouette as it is to es-
tablish the popularity of the natural j
waist line. There are differences, dis-
tinctly summery. Many coats are,
sleeveless; some ensembles are en-
tirely plainted; all are light. Fur
trimmings are good as always. Sum-
mer furs are light, the short fur being
more popular for trimming this sea-
son. Collars and cuffs are the rulel
although the collarless coat with the'
wide band of fur around the bottoml
is still good.
Evening dresses and wraps are the
real exhibits of the summer fashion.
Here is a real difference.--less of the
bizarre, more of the decorative, or-
namented simplicity. They may be
white or pale toned or of any of the
brighter fruit colors. There is little
black, contrary to the mode of late
seasons. Materials are of soft chiffon
or satin,-much satin. Beads are used
in exceedingly novel ways in an at-
tempt to continue their popularity.
There are beaded girdles and beaded
hems, usually in some attractive de-
sign of conventionalized flowers.
Colored bands of beads shading from
dark shades to pale tones are popular
and fascinating. The embroidered'
frock holds place with beads in thel

at the expense of the intellectual,
Miss Bourland said, "On the contrary
the European woman is more inter-
ested in intellectual subjects than the
average woman at American .univer-
sities. Their intellectual .and social
life is stressed; they are aware of the
political and social life around them,
not only while at school, but later
when they are out in society. Dancing
and other such social amusements are
secondary to intellectual conversation,
which is a real art in Europe. Their
education has been so versatile that
they can speak intelligently on al-
most any subject."
Another interesting point brought
out by Miss Bourland, is that in Hun-
gary it is the height of bad manners
for a young man to ask a young wom-
an for a. "date." Social etiquette de-
mands that the girl extend the invi-
tation to the man, with her mother's
permission. If a young man wishes to
continue the acquaintance of a girl
he has just met, the furthest he can go
in expressing a desire to see her again
is to ask her whether she likes the
opera or the theatre. These questions
are supposed to be hints to the girl
that he desires her to invite him to at-
tend any of these places with her.
The girl's mother, of course accom-
paines them when they go anywhere.
At no time does a young woman dine
out with a man unless her mother is
with her. The cost of the dinner is
split between them.
Athletics play a minor part in both
German and Hungarian schools. At
Romerei college the favorite sports
were tennis, horseback-riding, swim-
ing and hiking, but there are no or-
ganized events, as in the American
schools and intercollegiate sports are
unheard of.

Consider shoes and note the distinc-
tion between the season's foot-gear.::
As usual there are sport oxfords, com-"
fortable and a trifle clumsy, perhaps,
but rather attractive with bizarrei
decorations of various highly orna-
mented kid. It is the style of the ox-
ford that is, of necessity, clumsy,- -:
heavy, broad, square, its only grace in:
its appropriate comfort. Attempts to
vary. the rule of the sport shoe meet .
with little success. The summer {-.
model may be of white buck-skin or
brown leather with moderate Cuban
heels. The heelless slipper is relegat-
ed to its only proper setting, the ten-
nis court. Such is the shoe of pure
practical value only.
Of course, a shoe is always practical
but it need not be solely so. Slippers,
