New Perfume Made
A new American firm called LeArns
has produced four of the most start-
lingly modern perfumes on the mar-
ket this season. "Silver Orchid" is
distinctly a formal perfume but has
an air of sweetness about it that
mhakes it a sure-fire hit with anyone
who chooses to wear it.
LeArds "Dianthus" in a spicy per-
ume for the woman who adores tweed
and tailored clothes while the .firm 's
"Mimosa" speaks of brilliant holiday
parties and its scent in'yparts a gay
spirit. "Sweet Briar" marks the
revolution to a floral scent that is not
too sweet and yet has a simple charm
that would please any woman from
9 to 90.

Or would you lose a second or two

American Ballet Young
However, the American Ballet, an
outgrowth of the School of the
'American Ballet is comparatively
Soung, having been organized in the
present form only about five years
ago; and, as Mr. Allentuck stated,
their ballet still has far to go before
t will reach its highest achievement.
It is this youth which, he stated, no
doubt leads to that incompleteness
and lack of transition which review-
ers sometimes find disconcerting.
However, a young organization is
not the only claim to youthfulness
that the ballet has. The members of
the troupe themselves are decidedly
of the youth of America. ,Coming
from all parts of the United States,
their ages range from 17 to 22 for
the women dancers and 19 to 25 for
the men, with the exception of one
man who is just 30 years old.
Strenuous Life
These dancers have for the most
part been dancing since they were
11 or ,12 years old, and one young
man started when he was four, be-
cause, he said, he was a very plump
boy. Looking over the troupe now,
there is no one who tends towards
