FOR AND ABOUT WOMEN.
Alas for the self-satisfied. He who is
without aspirations is poor indeed. For all
life consists of realizing unrealized ideals,
and he who has no unrealized ideals is
already dead, and knows it not.—Lyman
Vacationing 7—There are two points
you'll have to settle before you buy
your ticket and check your trunk:
Where you're going, and what clothes
you’ll take along. Of course vacations
differ—all the way from a week in
Washington to a summer in Maine.
All the way again, from a round of
dancing and swimming and dressing-
up at a smart summer hotel, to the
veriest roughing-it away off where
people stop being important, and you
have a bit of time to yourself and the
trees and the sky. But the real thing
about a real vacation seems to be that
it shall take you to the things that
you have been missing all the year.
That’s why you people in the cities
like to get away from them, and you
people in the country find so much fun
in a couple of weeks in New York.
And every last one of you, I'll wager,
looking forward to treading unfamil-
iar paths, consider your clothes with
perturbation, and wonder just what
Well, to you all, I'll say this: Un-
less you are going to a place where
dressing is the most important thing,
don’t take too many clothes. Spend
your money and thought on a few
right ones instead. Care free is the
woman who is going camping. For
she can step into a sports outfitter’s
and (provided she can manage the
money) buy a swagger outfit that’s
just right: Breeches and coat, soft
shirts, high comfortable boots, and a
short skirt if she likes, with a warm
sweater and perhaps a big waterproof
coat and a comfortable hat—the kind
of clothes you don’t have to think
about. The only drawback to this is
the pang she may feel when in a near-
by shop window she glimpses a ruffled
gray organdie or a tangerine-colored
sweater, that she doesn’t need.
If your vacation is sight-seeing in
the city, keep your clothes to a stern
minimum. Perhaps you’ll insist on a
suit for traveling; there’s nothing
trimmer, certainly. Then one of the
twills, in navy blue and not too ex-
treme a cut, ought to suit you. Or
maybe a tweed or homespun trimly
tailored. Your hat should be small
and comfortable for your head, soft
at the back, anyway. Milan and ta-
gal, crepe, taffeta and faille offer
themselves. Perhaps you will add a
bit of color to your hat—rust, tange-
rine, jade, or brighter blue. I like the
straws this year that have a bit of
gold woven in.
Fer shoes, oxfords in a medium
brown shade, or that modification of
the oxford, the low shoe with buckled
straps. And, by all means, two pairs.
Pavements are hard on the feet.
Gloves—washable white or light tan
chamois imitation, or silk, in gauntlet
style. Uunderwear—silk or crepe.
Blouses—matching georgette for util-
ity with a navy twill suit; but if your
space permits and your suit is tweed
or homespun, semitailored crepe de
chine or dimity. And here’s a sug-
gestion: Why not buy a fresh cotton
blouse as you need it, mailing your
soiled ones home?
You can dress for a short vacation
in a suit; but I think it is wise to car-
ry a wrap or top coat—perhaps a
swagger plaid affair cut on English
lines, or perhaps a more dress-up cape,
like the French model now worn, of
navy twill cut in the shape of big pet-
als, each one outlined with shiny black
braid. With this cape, if you take a
smart little taffeta or crepe dress, you
are well fixed for the theatre or din-
ing. A plain dress of this type may
even take the place of the suit.
But enough of cities! For the great
nine-tenths of us, vacation means
bathing suits and such, doesn’t it?
And, oh, there are such cunning bath-
ing suits this year—slim little black
velvet ones, and bouffant taffetas, eye-
let-embroidered or maybe accompan-
ied by little red and white checked
gingham trousers. Silk or wool jersey
suits for real swimming show wide
horizontal stripes of vivid color, and
colorful, too, are the beach capes of
rubberized watered silk or Terry cloth.
Then there are sweaters and sports
skirts. They say the Tuxedo sweat-
ers are selling as well as any, though
there are a good many tie-ons, and
for the ultra smart, the high-necked
slip-on is voguish. A so-called golf
middy has a V neck, long sleeves and
belt of self-material. Mohair is pop-
ular, as well as chiffon alpaca, silk and
fiber. The vogue for white has reach-
ed sweaters, and popular colors are
rust, buff, gray, jade, tomato, and tan-
White flannel is the new thing for
sports skirts; and the knitted silk ones
in bright Roman stripes are almost
too much temptation.
Knitted sports suits and dresses,
silk or wool, will tmept you, as will
the swagger little suits that show
coats of plain jersey, collared and
cuffed with checked velour or striped
flannel like the skirts. A very chic
combination is a striped green and
white flannel skirt with an overblouse
of white crepe de chine.
Of eourse you'll want an organdie
frock or two if there’s any chance of
your wearing them. Perhaps you will
chyose a vivid tomato color with or-
gandie flowers and short puff sleeves.
Then there are the flowerlike frocks
of fine French voiles and linens, deli-
cately hand made and hand drawn.
And the parasols, that range from
checked gingham to flowered taffeta,
knitted fabric to chintz. And the fas-
cinating white brushed wool capes.
—Woman’s Home Companion.
There are many accessories which
can be used for the color note of the
tailored suit. Perhaps it is just the
bag, made of gay moire, -
beads, or vachette leather. With a
suit of Jough sports ctdk in golden
brown, the bag looks smart in Dinty
color note in stockings.
dark or neutral in tone, and let the hat
faille silk, |
match it; but have your silk stockings
in the brightest of plaids. Another
idea is to have the guimpe give the
color note. Even the rainy-day cos-
tume can have its color accent by
carrying with it a gay, cheery um-
brella—red or emerald green.

Amanda doesn’t pretend to approve
of -the restricted, goldfish bowl exist-
ence led by most New York apartment
dwellers. She says she likes space.
“A dinin’ room, an’ a settin’ room, an’
a kitchen, an’ two or f’ree bedrooms,
an’ a sewin’ room, an’ a bar’ room, an’
an attic” representing the appropri-
ate thing in floor plans to Amanda. |
But Amanda, forsooth, is an architect
of fate, and contrives to “make the
mos’ of things” in an astonishingly
comfortable way even in an apartment
of modest dimensions. She arrives
earlier than believable, rescues the
cream, ice and morning paper, pre- |
pares a dainty breakfast, and insists
that her mistress eat in bed. This
morning the sun shone in the tiny
bedroom, and the bright glass and chi-
na caught the glint. The pretty dra-
peries hung in soft folds and the rose-
budsina breakfast cap bloomed be-
comingly against fair hair. The coffee
was deliciously aromatic, the melon
ice cold, the toast hot, the butter
Amanda surveyed the scene approv-
ingly. “You certainly do look grand,
ma’am, a-settin’ there eatin’ that
breakfast so elegant like. Lawsie,
ma’am, to look at you, you'd nevah
think that that breakfas’ was cooked
in a little "lectric stove in a baf-oom!
Ain’t that the Noo Yawk of it!"—

PENN STATE MUST STAND STILL
TWO MORE YEARS.
State College, Pa., June 8.—“So far
as accommodating more students and
expanding resident instruction is con-
cerned, we will have to stand still for
the next two years,” said Dr. John M.
Thomas, president of The Pennsylva-
nia State College, in commenting on
the college appropriation of $2,156,000
as authorized by Governor Sproul.
Only $25,000 is allowed the college for
building purposes, as against $2,885,-
000 asked by the college trustees, and
$650,000 voted by the Legislature. The
sum asked by the college was calcu-
lated to provide only desirable class-
room, laboratory and dormitory space
to properly house the existing student
body of 3,000 men and women, and the
state grant will mean no additional
buildings whatever to relieve crowded
Penn State, which is the only col-
lege in Pennsylvania having a definite
status as a state institution, refused
admission to over 1000 applicants last
fall due to lack of academic facilities,
and has turned away over 3500 in the
past seven years. No limit has been
set on the Freshman class for next
year but it will probably be less than
the 750 minimum of 1920. The college
requested $2,900,000 for maintenance
for the next two years, and receives
$1,600,000. For the summer sessions
of this and next year $100,000 was
asked, and $40,000 received. The col-
lege needed $65,000 for engineering, |
mining and liberal arts extension
work, and received $35,000. By reduc-
ing the agricultural extension request
from $524,214 to $450,000, farm inter-
ests of the State lose double the dif-
ference, or almost $150,000, as the na-
tional government always gives an
equal amount with the State.
