There is a very general demand
among women everywhere for all
the loose basket weaves. In these,
mixed colors hold a strong position.

demand. Poplin in silk and wool
mixtures Is aiso registered among
the popular materials for Spring.,
Prints take first place in silk. In

marocaln, satin and Shantung and

liET THE MARINES DO IT
Chaperones are coming back
into style, according to a social
note. Are the old people getting
wild again? . . . The chaperon is
a relic of the flaming Victorian
days when young people used to
play postolfice instead of robbing
it. . . . Speaking of Coolidge's
lame hand, perhaps it would be
well for the president to take a
chaperon along when he rides
west this summer. The chaperon
could do the handshaking in the
great open spaces where hands are
box-car couplers ... Of late
we've been depending on the ma-
rines to do most of the chaperon-
ing. . . . They have arrived in
several communities and seem to
have the chaperoning situation
well in hand. . . . The best chap-
eroned thing we can think of right
how is the constitution.
