CHICAGO. March 2L (Special.) Revo
lution has been proclaimed by the Chicago
dressmakers In congress here for their
semi-annual exhibition. The thralls of
slavery to Paris styles have been thrown
off, and the American modiste Is de
clared to be a free and independent
artist, with the right to life, liberty and
her customers patronage, uninfluenced
by ilFrench competition. Mme. Linda Ross
TVaue, vice-president of the National
'Dressmakers' Association, announced the
declaration of Independence yesterday.
"We sec," she said, "that the yoke of
Paris has been on our necks, figuratively,
speaking, altogether too long. It is time
for us to break away and create National j
styles of our own. At next Fail's ex- i
hlbit there probably will not be one
Parisian model shown. We gain nothing
from them except the conviction that our
workmanship Is better than theirs.
"Styles made here are better adapted
to the American woman's figure and tem
per than the French gowns. But until
we take the law Into our own hands and
refuse to' import gowns Parisian gowns
at great expense, we will not be Ipvent
tors and artists, but copyists, I
How to Look SlimrThoug i Not. I
Behind locked doors, with a. strict pro- j
hibltlon placed on the presence of men, i
Mme. Wade lectured to a large audience
of women this afternoon on the proper
methods of walking, sleeping and wear
ing corsets, accompanying her theories
with demonstrations. Among her dicta
"Sleep flat on the face, with the limbs
stretched out straight. This keeps down
the abdomen and double chin. Do not
curl up like a hibernating groundhog.
"Walk on the toes, not on the heels. Do
not scrape the feet, but step along lightly.
Try to avoid attracting attention to your
feet, if you want them to seem small.
"Any woman can have a shapely figure
if she wears the right kind of a corset
and puts it on properly. If you have a
bad figure, blame yourself rather than
the corset. Fasten th6 bottom catch of
the corset first, and then mold it to your
figure. After drawing the strings tight;
exercise a little before fastening, all the
'Cultivate Hour-Glass Figure.
"You, . must have an hour-glass figure
with an 16-lnch waist," said Madame
Wade. "The proper waist measure Is 26
Inches, but you must make It look IS."
"Don't you have to. squeeze awful hard,"
piped a wide-eyed girl In a Napoleon hat,
who had never been taught that she
mustn't speak up In meeting.
"You don't have to squeeze at all," re
turned Mme. "Wade. "Xou must wear a
proper corset, get into It properly, and
take the simple physical culture exercises
which I shall show you."
Then Mme. Wade, with the aid of some
ravlshlngly pretty models and some cor
sets that have been adopted by the Na
tional Dressmakers Association, proceed
ed to do stunts that astonished and In
terested her audience.
In the evening Mme. Hunt, president of
the association, talked on "The Uses and
Abuses of Trimmings."
