partner, M. Clustine.
SIDE-GLIDE IN ONE-STEPv
AS IT SHOULD BE DANCED
'T'HIS article Is the second of an illustrated scitcs on Anna Pavloica's New
J. Social Dances and How to Perform Them, tthlch are to appear exclusively
every Tuesday and Thursday in the Evcnino Ledger. These articles have
been written by Mile. Pavlowa, who as piemlcre ballerina assoluta of the St,
Petersburg Imperial Opera, is everywhere recognized as not only the oic.atcst
living dancer, but the greatest living authority on the art of the dance. The
photographs were posed for by Mile. Pavlowa and her partner, Ivan Clus
tine (mallre de ballet of the Imperial Opera Houses in St Petersburg and
Moscow and at the Parts Grand Opera), regarded as Europe's foremost mas
culine social dancer.
By ANNA PAVLOWA
THE side-glide, which constitutes the
second division of my standardized
one-step, may be performed after the
eighth count while the couple is dancing
with the lady moving straight ahead. It
may also be performed after eight counts,
in which four are first In a forward di
rection for the, lady and the next four
reversed, taken with the cavalier going
It consists of two glide steps to the
right, Instead of the left, of the cavalier,
as has been the custom, I believe, In some
r.nrt nt the country. Occupying a
"closed" position, the partners are ready
td begin the side-glide, tho lady on her
right foot and her partner on his left.
This side-glide figure should cover
eight counts of the music, but there
Bhould be only one step taken on the first
two counts. Tho lady moves to her left
and the cavalier to his right. Instead of
a long first-step the dancers take one
less than one-half a customary., glide
step. This Is made necessary because of
the direction assumed, something I deam
proper in order to give variety and grace
to the dance. , . ,
The lady, -who is in a "closed' posl
.. TOih hr nsrtwer. moves to her left
on count "one," starting on her right
foot, which she brings sidewlse along the
floor until It rests closo against the left.
On count "two" she stands perfectly
still, taking no step whatsoever.
When count "three" arrives the lady
takes a fairly long step to the left with
her left foot, and on the ball of the foot;
and on the fourth count she brings her
right foot close beside the left as she did
In starting the figure on the first count.
Th. iiRxt four counts are, for the laay,
left foot to the left, on ball of the foot
', count "one" (or five, if it bo easier to I Step.
so remember It), right foot brought along
side left on count "two"; and a repetition
of these steps to the lady's left on counts
"three" and "four "
During theso last four counts, the lady
and her cavalier make a gradual turn to
the left so that on the final step they
have mado between a quarter and a half
Kturn On the eight (or second count of
four) count the dancers find themselves In
a perfect position either to resume the
first figure In the one-step for eight
counts or to progress Into the next one
The cavalier, of course, starts on the
foot opposite that of his lady and to his
right. On count "one" he brings his left
foot, which Is only a few Inches away
from his right, along the floor and closely
touching tho right, lie stands quiet on
count "two," glides a fairly long glldo
(as much as 12 Inches) with tho right
foot on count "three" and carrjlng the
left foot along the floor on tho fourth
count to the right.
Tho next four counts are first on the
right, then the left brought alongside,
the right again and finally the left car

Bright and Early, the
inter's Greatest Sale of
ren's Overcoats at the
19 0 ur we sock of staple

Some of the $25 over
coats are the finest ready-to-wear
Philadelphia ever saw at
any price. Magnificent
Carr-Meltons, tailored in
the most expensive, fash
ionable style, and richly
lined with silk.
In all, there are more than 2000 overcoats going" at prices from $12.50 to $25. The
highest price is $25, but there are plenty of overcoats in the sale worth twice that much and
some worth more than twice as much.
In the whole 2000 there is not one overcoat that would nbt be an honor and an orna
ment to our stock at its regular 'price in the height of the season.
Every overcoat in this sale has come down for the first time. There is never any marking up and
marking down again in the Wanamaker business.
Nqcomparative prices will be found marked on the sales tickets. But, for the information of our
customers, we will say right here that there are bigger savings and better savings in this sale of overcoats
than in any other sale of overcoats ever held in Philadelphia, no matter what prices or what comparisons
may have been quoted. (
Of overcoats at $25 there are nearly 800, and in all our experience we have never seen better. They
represent the veiy finest fabrics that it is possible to secure in ready-to-wear clothing.
In the case of one group of 100 the manufacturer said:
"I let my taste for very fine things run away with my judgment, for you never would expect
to have seen such fabrics as these in ready-to-wear overcoats. It is the kind of cloth' that is
handled by only a few of the most expensive and exclusive custom tailors in the country. It is
doubtful if it will ever be seen in ready-to-wear garments again." f -
Almost as good things might be said about every group in the sale. Every one of the overcoats is our
own careful pick. There is no job lot here, no bargain special, no hurriedly patched-up lot for a sale.
But there are, instead, 2000 overcoats specially priced at $12.50, $18.50 and $25. They include a com
prehensive collection of Chesterfield style; black, oxford and Cambridge gray mixtures; plenty of over
coats in gray, blue, brown, heather mixture and in smart.color effects; plenty of single-breasted overcoats,
double-breasted overcoats, convertible-collar overcoats, slip-on overcoats, plaid-back overcoats, skeleton
lined overcoats and rich silk-lined dress overcoats.
