The Commissioner of Public
Affair of Spokane han isHuctJ an
onlcr keeping women oil" the
ucels and out of public places
who persist in wenrinjr clothes
fhicli are so filmy nnd scant as
tu cause comment. The city of
Port la ml lias designated a special
policeman to censor the dances
jo that the ratf. tanjro and other
indecent steps shall be prevented.
The police force in nearly every
city tun been instructed to keep
cfosc watch on the dress and
actions of the women. liven in
St. Helens the rranatfers of the
dances have put the taboo on the
ratfuintf. etc.. and people are
warned at every dance that
ragging" will not bo permitted,
still in the face of the warning
there are those who try to rag a
little anyway. All alonjr the
line, in every community, there
Is a movement to control the
matter of women's dress arid
and actions. There is a general
belief that the styles of female
clothing has considerable to do
with the many assaults and at
tempts at assaults on the w omen.
The tendency of the styles is to
use just as little clothing as is
fKissiiiIe. arid there are those
women, many of them too, who
will use just a little less that is
possible. It is a sad state of
affairs when it becomes neces
sary to appoint a censor to pass
jon the decency of women's
clothing, and to have a police
man stationed at every dance
hall to see that improper and im
moral dancirg is not permitted.
It is time that the good women
of the country take some steps to
Jo away with the extreme styles
and fashions and Ret back to the
ityles of old fashioned mothers,
fur whom no censors or police
men were needed.
A trip over the roads from St.
Helens to Portland in an auto is
sufficient to convince any reason
able person that oil on the im
proved roads is a Kreat necessity

-hen another rut and then Borne
more ruts on both sides and all

and dust. In Multnomah county
the entire distance to Portland
roin the county line is like pave
ment; smooth and hard. The
windalion and material of the
rua,'s in Columbia county is the
same as in Multnomah countv.

lta roads in one county as the

are nn.re numerous in Mult
