bij Madam Eickpf
PORTLAND Dear Madam Richet:
Please help me with my problem of re
modeling a dress like inclosed sample
Will buy trimming or suitable contrast
ing material as you suggest. If possible,
would like pattern number and periodical.
The dress at present is made with waist
to normal waist line, opens down center
front. Underneath an extra set on front
of same material, which is trimmed with
black soutashe braid; has full - length
sleeves in one piece, with gore at back
trimmed with self - covered buttons to
elbow. Skirt is In two straight piecea,
36 inches long, with three-inch hem and
each piece is about 30 .inches wide, gath
ered at top; has a straight - gathered
tunic 20 inches in length, which does not
extend all the way around, but just
comes to sides of center front. Tunic
also is trimmed with the soutache braid,
tiklrt opens at side. Would like a dress
suitable for church or street wear. Am
35 years old, five feet four inches tall,
weight 118 pounds, bust 38 inches, waist
28 inches, hijis 38 Inches. Have light
brown hair, blue eyes and medium com
plexion. MRS. E. A. G.
MRS. E. A. G The blue dress
needs little to make it quite up
to the minute, and I would advise
the removing of the tunic, piecing i.t
into side panels placed just below
the point of hip bone. Braid the
seams of piecing with black sou
tashe; remove the vest and replace
with one of taupe broadcloth. Braid
the sides of blouse which follow the
front line of vest. At the bottom of
toe panels a very attractive fea
ture would be in the use of caracul
in the black. The cape can be
eliminated or one of taupe broad
cloth used with a smart collar of
the caracul. . Please see the model
(shown in the fall quarterly of the
jlcCall number, page 17, No. 2810.
Face your ekirt if it now seems too
ABERDEEN, Wash., Oct. 81. Dear
Madam Richet: I have a. navy blue
tricotine dress which is too small for me.
J would like to combine it with some
other material for a street dress. Tbe
front is one. pieue, hut. haa small slit J L
pockets with a lighter blue strip of flan
nel for trimming. There is also a strip
of the flannel three inches wide around
the bottom of overdress. The back is
two pieces with small self - material
buttons in a single row the full length.
Three-quarter set in sleeves. Fastens
under left arm and on shoulder; 62 Inches
around bottom and 44 inches just under
arms; 48 inches from shoulder to bottom
o: dress. The under skirt is 12 inches
long, 57 inches in width, and is fastened
to a silk top.
1 am 5 feet 6 inches in height, 46
bust, 36 waist, 46 hips and ' weigh 178
pounds. ty hair is very light auburn;
dark blue eyes and a little color. I am 18
years of age. MRS. J. H.
Mrs. J. H., Aberdeen, Wash. Be
fore masing over your dress may I
suggest that you be fitted to a well
made corset, for truly you are far
too young to have such large hips
and bust. In the fall quarterly of
the McCall fashions there is shown
an attractive style, page 9, No. 2800.
Combine with a blue canton crepe,
using the latter for the pleated
apron, and piece out the skirt to
the desired length with the drop and
the front removed. The seams can
be finished ,with the cording. From
what you write of your blouse the
side button trim with fringe or
monkey fur will be very attractive.
The model will give you a plan
upon which to work, and I am sure
that you will like the dress when it
has been completed. The buttons
can be of the contrasting or the
self -covered and the fringe or fur in
AURORA, Or., Oct. 21. Dear Madam
Richet: Would like your advice in mak
ing over a dress of- navy blue silk tri
colette. Will buy suitable contrasting
material as you suggest. If possible I
would like pattern in Pictorial Review
fashion book. The dress at present Is
made with waist to normal waist line
and plain two-piece skirt. The waist Is
plain with the exception of the sleeves
being set in an underwalst.
W ould like to iresnen up tne aress, as

skirt or anything that you will suggest.

plexion, blue eyes;" bust measures 41,

Perplexed. Aurora. Or. With the
blue tricolette you have I would
have the henna moire for the skirt
panel strips with an effective de
ign done in the eteel beads, une
blouse and the sleeves to be of the
combining shade. Meeting your re
quest for a pattern I shall ask you
to see the model In the fall quarter
ly of the Pictorial Review, page 16,
No. 1152. The lines will give you
length and the combination of blue
and henna is always attractive.
HOOD RIVER, Or., Oct. 2. Dear
Madam Richet: Have five yards of
black taffeta, .40 inches wide, like in
closed sample. I would like it made In
a way that I could wear lor a. coirpie oi
years without making it over, if such a
thing is possible. I don't want any bead
ing or embroidery on it.
Also I have two and one-quarter yards,
40 Inches wide, of gray crepe de chine
for a blouse. I want something becom
ing and simple for dress wear. Do you
think beading or embroidery would be
good? What color?
I am planning to make a coat suit. I
don't know what kind of material and
color would be best. How about navy
blue poiret twill. Suggest pattern. I am
18 years old and 6 leet tali, ofl oust, ou
waist, large below hips. My hair Is
medium brown, eyes bluish green and
complexion medium, with some color.
Please select Butterick, Standard, Ladies'
Home Journal "or McCall's, as they are
the only kind kept here. Thanking you
in advance, MARY JANICE.
Mary Janice, Hood River, Or.
With the request for a dress that
you can wear for two years without
making over I can assure you that
you have given me a problem, for
only a prophet can foretell the
whims of fashion. However, there
is in the Ladies' Home Journal for
October 'a very smart frock shown
on page 62, No. 3674. Inasmuch as
you do not wish the beading or
the handwork, I would suggest the
use of Copenhagen broadcloth used
for the tabbed collar and sleeve
trim. This contrast can be re
moved without demanding a general
change to the dress. The pleated
panel at the side should be lined
with the blue as used on the blouse
and well weighted at the bottom.
For the gray crepe de chine blouse
there is a most attractive model
shown in the winter quarterly of the
Butterick on page 36, No. 3698.
Follov the Russian cross-stitch in
a combination of colors such as old
blue, black, henna, copper, orchid
and green. The overtype will be an
advantage in lessening the full line
below the hip. I would do the em
broidery in the rope silks.
A splendid type of suit for the
winter, because of its high collar,
will be found in the winter quar
terly of the Butterick, page 51, No.
3956. This I would have in a dark
blue poiret twill.. The stitched strap
trim at the side will be especially
good for the full hip, as it will give
length, and the sightly bloused line
at the waist is very well planned
or the tall figur.
EMPLOYES ASK RELIEF
CITY WORKERS DON'T LIKE
"DIPPIXG IX POLITICS."
Civil Service Association Resolu
tions Advocate Amendment
of City Charter.
City employes are anxious that
the city charter be so amended that
they will not be required to "dip
into politics," as is the case now,
because of the three-mill tax levy.
In resolutions adopted by the mu
nicipal civil service association the
city council and the people of the
city of Portland have been urged
to amend the city charter to embody
the 6 per cent tax limitation as a
replacement of the 8-mill limitation
now in the charter and thus allow
the tax levy of the city to operate
as intended by the framers of the
tax limitation amendment.
In the same resolution the city
employes pointed out the danger,
not alone to themselves, if the
3-mill tax is not authorized, but also
to the normal functioning of the
city government to the point of peril
to the health, happiness, safety and
the city's social and business rela
tions. The Original Food-Drink for All Age

HDGKWOOD VOTE TARGET
AMENDED COMPLAINT FILED
IN ELECTION CASE.
Permanent Injunction in Water
District Case Is Asked by
Opponents of Measure. .
An amended complaint was filed
in the circuit court yesterday in
the effort of certain Rockwood citi
zens to prevent formation of the
Rockwood water district. It asked
that the temporary injunction re
straining county officials from giv
ing approval to the election results
be made permanent and that all acts
performed in the attempt to create
the district be set aside.
A new allegation was that 60 per
cent of those who signed the peti
tion asking for an election October
14 on the question of creating the
district were not legal residents of
the district. With the illegal names
deducted it was alleged that less
than the required 15 per cent of
valid signatures were obtained. Ex
ception was taken, also, to the plan
of County Clerk Beveridge in ar
ranging only one polling place in
the election held, where it is cus
tomary in all other elections to have
three polling places
In the election there was an evi.
dent majority of 39 in favor of cre
ating the new water district. Suit
to " enjoin officials from carrying
forward the project was filed re
cently and a temporary restraining
order was obtained. Among other
allegations made n the first com
plaint was one that wards of the
county living on the county farm
had been taken to the polls and per
mitted to vote. It was said, also,
that the election officials did not
restrict voting to those listed on
the registration books.
