Causing Tragedy—Fiancee Relents
Chester, Pa., March 18. —Stephen
Melikizey and Mary Luskovisky, a
young couple, are sweethearts and
their wedding day was fixed. Stephen
wore a mustache of which Mary was
proud. Tuesday Stephen had the hirsute
adornment shaved off.
When Mary discovered this she de
i elared that she would not wed Stephen
until the mustache was regrown.
Yesterday morning Stephen, distract
i ed, declared that life had no 'bright- !
11 ness for him without Mary, and he
I made a dash for a nearby water-filled
! 1 quarry hole. Mary followed, attended ;
|by a great crowd. At the edge of the
quarry hole Mary caught her fiance by
' the coat tails. Stephen slipped out 01
the coat. Mary again seized him and
1 two men assisted her. Then she prom
ised she would become his bride, mus
tache or no mustache. The dive into '
' the watery depths was postponed in j

"Spirit of Greece Must Go Shod,"
Dancer's Lament
Boston, Mass., March 18.—And now '
it is bare feet that have been placed j
on the tabooed list in this puritanical !
city. Mayor Curley did it yesterday,!
when he decreed that feet when ex- !
posed are shocking to public morals.
This latest edict hits young society \
women who were to do barefoot dancing '
at the 1915 dance carnival for the!
woman suffrage fund. It has never been I
customary to wear stockings in Greek"!
interpretative dances, they protested: |
i but Mayor Curley replied that he is go- j
j ing to smash custom.
All feet must be hidden in hosiery,!
| says the Mayor. Unless his order is I
obeyed the show cannot be given.
"Bare feet are as innocent as bare!
hands or bare faces," said Lalla V.
\\ vman, society dance introducer.!
"The Mayor interferes with a work of I
i art and says nothing about suggestive j
j jokes that are used in musical come-
I dies in some of our most respectable)
; theatres. In Boston the spiiit of Greece j
must go shod."
