proposing a standardized evening dress, sprinkled generously throughout the
l-'ajthiuuM and the War.
IT seems rather far fetched to connect
the question of dress in any serious
way with the war. Yet as one of the
fcy-products of the conflict now raging
we may find the matter of how we shall
clothe ourselves in the future affected
to quite a remarkable degree.
Ephemeral fashions we shall have in
Plenty from the war. We will proba
bly be decked tvlth military braid and
buttons. We shall wear headgear that
Smacks of Tommy Atkins and the land
f Tarn o" Shanter. Our coats will proba
bly have the lines of military jackets
r the fascinating swing of military
rloaks. Our skirts will be kilted,
l-'rom head to foot we will in a dainty
iciiiinine way ue military.
But these changes are neither per.
judical, nor important. z these were
mil in the matter of dress that the war
Js likely to bring in, the subject would
not be worth considering. But there Is
possibility that something of far
srreater consequences will come out of
the war. In a word, there is the talk
now of a standardised dress.
In London a movement to bring this
wuuui is uireaay on loot. Those back
r it say tnat the terriflc financial ex
penaiture going on means that for
j ears to come the strictest economv
will be necessary for everyone. And the
nrst point at which to begin this econ
omy, suy the promoters of the move
jnent, is dress.
So they are tackling the problem to
see If something cannot be done to re
duce the cost of fashionable dressing.
As a step toward this end they arc
Men, they say, have a standard for so
cial wear, why not women? They are
also urging the adoption of some stan
dard form of headwear. And again they
draw attention to the fact that man's
headwear is standardized.
If a reduction in the cost and labor
of keeping up with fashion would re
sult from the war, surely it would be
a thing to give thanks for. It would
be a difficult thing to bring about, for
women in these matters are whimsical
and self-indulgent. But the iron hand
of necesssity is being laid upon them
and they may yield to this when noth
ing else would compel acquiescence.
And though this may seem an incon
sequential thing to evolve from the
chaos now reigning, it will If occom-
pllshed have a tremendous effect on
life as the years go by. It will free
woman from much that now shackles
her; from much that takes her earn
ings, her time, her energy. It will lib
erate her for endeavor in more worth
while directions.

naming the three elements nec
essary for the promotion of per
sonality, Mrs. Kate Upson Clark, of
Brooklyn, who spoke before the Port
land Woman's Club yesterday, said:
The first is health. The Lord never
made us to be invalids. The corset.
the dotted veil and the high-heeled
shoe are foolish. Women of the West
should set the fashions. The West
ern women have such good sense.
Don't lose it. Cultivate individuality
by yourselves. Imitation is death to
The second requisite named by Mrs.
Clark was an education and thw third
religion. 'I don't care what your re
ligion is, but you must have spiritual
force," she said.
Sincerity and courage were urged by
the speaker as attributes to be cul
tivated -constantly.
The subject of the day was "Can
Personality Be Cultivated?" and in
answer to this Mrs. Clark said: "If
you want anything, if you feel that in
your character and general makeup
you lack some element, pray for it,
work for it, strive constantly for it
and I feel sure you will get it"
Personality, she said, is far above
good looks. "I've known men to fall
in love with very plain girls who had
personality," she said.
To the mothers of boys and girls
of college age she gave this advice:
"Educate your young people out here.
xoey can learn just aa well in the
West as in the East. And I know
what I'm talking about, because I had
three sons graduated from Yale."
Delightful wit and humor were
speaker s address and at the close of
the programme phe was honored at
an informal reception.
Yesterday was the first social meet
ing of the club for the season. It was
an open meeting and Mrs. B. J. Frankel,
the president, announced that all the
women present who were not members
were invited to join. The club had
let down its bar of exclusiveness. Any
woman was welcome.
At the opening of tjie session, Mrs.
Russell Dorr, chairmaff of the music
committee, gave the plans of the com
mittee. It will be their aim to give
a few minutes of the time allotted to
music to an analysis of the work to be
presented and some comments on the
composer. The music will be made an
educational and inspiring feature.
Hartridge Whipp gave four English
and three German songs. Mrs. Whipp
