Spring, 1917, has indeed, distinguished itself
by ushering in styles that permit the widest pos-
sible freedom of selection. The lines, the colors,
the textures are so diversified that one may in-

tent and still be dressed in complete accordance
with Dame Fashion's mandates.
All the new etndencies and style features of the
moment are accurately presented in the Mack
displays. Suits, coats, dresses, skirts, and other
apparel, now gathered in the Fashion Salon, are

and most daring creations. "Goldflex" suits of brilliant jerseys,
short belted coats in vividcolorings, and separate skirts that range
through a striking array of stripes and figured patterns-all original
and exclusive, yet surprisingly low priced.
