Excuse For Spring

Assembly Ba


$* l5 .'."
Spring is coming, and all that sort
of rot, and it won't be long before
people will be quoting dreamily about
'young men's fancies turning lightly.'
Resist the urge to administer a sharp
uppercut and consider the practical
aspects of this suggestion-what with
the draft and all.
This is a dress that would make a
man think of spring, it he were in
Siberia. It's of crisp, brown faille
with tailored white collars and, cuffs
of grosgrain, and it's got the stuff,
even if the thermometer hasn't.
