Cotton Skirts And Torso Dresses
To Be Warm Weather Favoritesj

is slim and we know that you want
good-looking outfits too, so just
hold on and maybe you'll get some
ideas from this bit of information.
When you're out playing tennis, sail-
ing or just walking around, you'll
want some snappy little cotton skirts
that you can flip on over your fav-
orite shirt or blouse. Well, here's
one tlat's short without being awk--
ward and it looks crisp and fresh,.
The skirt is gathered in front with
a beautiful gored back, and it has
great big patch pockets to serve you
f when you don't want to carry a
handbag. Not only that, but it has
little silver rings on the waist-band
so you can adjust it to fit your own
particular waist-line, and it's made
of a cotton weave which looks just1
like a pastel tweed.
Make Your Own
If you're one of those people who
can't wear broomstick skirts, and yet
want some extra skirts, you ct.n
easily whip up one like we described
above in almost two hours. All you
1 have to do is to get some material
you like, gather it all into the waist-
band, press it and there you ale.
Maybe not quite as simple as that,
but almost.
Another idea for you, if you're in
the mood to add a few items to youw
wardrobe (and who isn't?) is to take
the material you have left over
from making your cotton skirts and
make matching bands of them for
your new cocoa straw hat. Even if
these skirts do look cute with huar-
aches and saddles, they look equally
good with spectators and a hat.
Green Accents Navy
It's almost impossible to even start
describing the scads of new cotton
dresses on display for this summer,
but here are a few we noticed that
seemed especially attractive. That
unusual but very smart color com-
bination of navy blue and light green
has been combined in a pert new
dress which also features the mode
of the moment, meaning the long
torso. It has a navy blue, long torso
linen top and a flared, seersucker,
green and navy plaid skirt with tiny
collar and short sleeves to match.

or out of the army, "a good opportun-
ity for understanding what democra-

into is a form of a planned order.
Let's call it by its right name, and
then if we still want to go ahead -
well all right, then!
"My main reason for believing that
it is important to have this year
of service compulsory," Mrs. Roose-
velt writes, "is that I believe so much
in the value of knowing many sides
of our national life." If, for the sake
of argument, we concede that the pro-
gram the President's wire envisages
will help us know the value of more
of these sides of national life - and
I can't really see how it will - it
still seems peculiarly coincidental

maybe it's not so bad right now, but
