skirt that is neither bulky In width
nor conspicuous by its narrowness.
Over it a tunic is worn. This may be
varied to suit the wearer and the oc
casion. The materials used are cnosen
by the wearer and may be anything
from heavy woolen to soft silk. . The
garment is especially adapted to busi
ness women who have little time to
change from a day to an evening costume.
As formidable as the universal cos
tume sounds, it is rather an attractive
garment, and is being worn by many
women who have adopted it as a prac
tical garment, and others who have
chosen it as a fad. It has made its
appearance at the seaside and Sum
mer hotels as well as In offices, school
rooms and libraries.
Mrs. Landone herself is entirely con
ventional in her dress. She is fond of
conservative styles and colors. She
dresses much like other women. The
present age will, according to the dress
reformer, bring to women the realiza-
ion of the importance of the struggle
for existence and the lack of impor
tance in finery, as the age of the
French Revolution brought the same
knowledge to men. She declares that
the bedecking of the person is a rem
nant of the dark ages which must be
done away with sooner or later. The
Polymurlel she believes to be the solu
tion of the problem of dress reform.

By Marie Dille.'
I Mrs. Mildred Johnston Landone, Cre
l tor of the Polymurlel.
NOW and then one sees a gown
that is part frock and part tunic,
a garment that is not "up-to-date"
according to the Paris designers and
is somewhat ahead of date In the
estimation of women who do not care
to accept the standardised dress for
women. Miss Jessie Rosefield is the
designer of this new garment, but Mrs.
Mildred Johnston Landone, of New
York, wag the originator of the idea
and the inspiration behind the design
ing of the dress.
Although Mrs. Landone did not know
exactly what might be accepted in the
way of a simpler dress Bhe did advo
cate less submission to prevailing
modes and more to the individual and
the demands of the wearer. She was
so determined to evolve a universal
costume for women that she offered a
$150 prize to the designer that would
create a costume that might be worn
on all occasions from the office of the
Business woman to an . after-theater
According to Mrs. Landone, the
minds of women are more important
than their clothes, and when relieved
from the worry of following ever
changing fads they will devote their
attention to more important things.
Her original idea was that of a rather
short skirt wtih trousers Just show
ing beneath it which might be turned
up in wet weather. She advised the se
lection of the most durable and adapt
The Polymurlel" that has been de
signed differs slightly from her orig
inal idea. It has a short, rather full
GREAT heed must be paid to the
"little things that count" in fash
ion as well as in other affairs. This
year the greatest amount of attention
paid to litle things is concentrated on
the neckwear. Now that Winter i3
oyer and the smart skating scarfs can
not be worn much longer, and woman
is loath to give up so becoming a part
of her wardrobe, an ingenious design
er gave her an aftermath.
It's a silk scarf tie that comes in
just as many and Just as gay colors
as the crocheted scarf. The shape Is
identical and the ends are fringed, in
many instances with a different color.
Some of the "scarf ties" are in pastel
shades and some in stripe and in mar
ble silks; others are in bright colors.
They present a beautiful means of get
ting the wearer gradually to uncover
her throat that has been swathed in
crocheted scarfs and furs all Winter.
A new way of wearing the "scarf tie"
and other ties is effected by the use of
a high collar that has standing-out
points under the ears. These may be
of any material from crisp organdy
to stiff linens. All except the points
of the collar is concealed by a colored
tie that is wrapped several times about
the neck and then tied in a single in
visible knot in front and allowed to
bang down like a Jabot.
Collars that are like little shoulder
capes will be popular, especially if
they have an additional small stand
up collar about the neck. There is a
French atmosphere about the flaring
organdie or batiste collar with a
chemisette of like material attached
and buttoned up the front with cut
steel or other fancy buttons.
There is a collar, so unusual that it
attracts a great deal of attention and
is of so unusual a style that it may
be worn by only a few types of women.
It has not a particular name and is
made right on the frock. The idea
was to imitate the cowl of a monk,
when the hood is thrown "back. The
collar has no visible seam in front and
wrinkles loosely almost halfway up
to the chin. The back has the ap
pearance of a hood.
Hand embroidery, that has been neg
lected the past few months, with
Spring finds new life, and is especially
in demand on the neckwear. Little
colored sprays of embroidery on white
organdy, satin " or Georgette crepe
make handsome vests and collars.

Miss Dollle Bunch.
Miss Dolly Bunch, the charm
ing and petite ingenue of the Dil
lon and King Company at the
Lyric, is leading a boost-for-Portand
song this week called
"Portland." It has proved one of
the song successes of the season.
Miss Bunch says: "That Port
land song, bow I love it. The
words express what a beautiful
city Portland really is, and each
performance I can hardly wait
until I get out before the audi
ence to sing that song to them,
for I put my heart into it. I
love Portland, and the song gives
me a chance to express to the
people out in front my liking for
their beautiful city.
"My engagements have always
kept me away from the Rose Fes
tival, but this season I shall be
here, and it is something I am
looking forward to."
