"Only mad dogs and Englishmen
go out in the noonday sun." But that
was written before the new coco-
nut straw hats came into view. They
are cool to wear and keep the sun
from toasting your hair to a crisp.
Anyone can go out, avoid the shade,
and still maintain that refreshed
look with her hair in place and a
shaded face.
With brims turned up or down,
round or squared crowns, coconut
straws can be found that are flat-
tering to almost every type of face.
What is really miraculous is the way
they go with every color imaginable.
Just get a supply of ribbons to
match or harmonize with your dress
and it will seem as if you have a
dozen new hats. If you make your
own clothes you can stitch up a
band of the dress material and have
a matching hat and dress.
For the "big moment" require-
ments in hats, enormous cartwheel
hats of fine straw are recommend-
ed, for their soft flopping lines that
shade one eye are most becoming.
For sultry days, when any vestige
of blowing hair is troublesome, sophis-
ticated turbans of white or pastels
will be very welcome to ward off the
hot sun and devastating winds, and
will look becoming with summer suns
and light clothes.
7-11 Club To Be Open
Featuring bridge and dancing to a
nickelodeon and with refreshments
available as usual, the 7-11 Club at
the League will be open today, to-
morrow and Saturday, instead of
