Two Types of Jobs

by Magazine Writer
"In choosing a vocation, there is
one paramount question which ev-
ery girl must decide for herself
fairly early in her working life. 'Is
the safe job or the adventurous job
the better for me?'" Miss Ann Mor-
gan tells some of the advantages of

Cottons are cool, crisp and cute,
and the craze for them is spreading
like an epidemic. The newest,
smartest formals for summer eve-
nings are made of the cloth that
can be laundered freshly for each
occasion. There are organdies that
are striped like a stick of pepper-
mint candy, and evening dresses of
plaid-striped linen that have no
back and are lovely in their simpli-
Accessories need not offer too
much of a problem. Little jackets
of grosgrain, white velveteen or cor-
duroy answer the demand nicely, or
even the all-around white top-coat
would serve the purpose. Cotton
slippers are smart and dull crepe
sandals in pastel shades are also
Other accessories that we could-
n't help noticing were various col-
ored rough, cotton bags with metal
trimming, a paid of white pique and
mesh gloves, and a white crochet
cotton bag with white crochet gloves
to match.
Among so many of the fashion-
able blues it is rather refreshing to
see a smart outfit in another color.
We saw one the other day in the
form of a stylish grey suit. The
:kirt and the jacket were both quite
plain and this simplicity was set off
by the bands of rich fur with which
the sleeves were trimmed.
