changes of fashion you are not
apt to make a mistake in the bis
change. For .nstance, if you know
that jackets are shorter and that
skirts arc smartest when uneven
length; that feathers trail instead
of sticking up; that high-collared
blouses with snort sleeves are more
modish than low-collared blouses
with Ions sleeves; if you are on the
alert about these little things, you
will not be likely to pick a suit, or
shirtwaist or hat that will be out of
style before the second season
Brand new fashions usually con

quite so strikingly smart, quite wear

changes in fashion, or a.i the fashion
expert terms it; "to be dated" about
fashion. To know absolutely which
styles are on the way out; which
tlyles are good for a little longer;
and which styles are entirely new.

than
blouses?
Ijo you know that skirts, of uneven
length, are much smarter than skirts
that have an even measurement all
around? This does not mean that
skirts sag anywhere far from it!
The effect of unevennrss is gained
by dropping loose panels of p. eating
or draped chiffon or lace over the
skirt, the panels falling below the
skirt hem; or by lapping the skirt
at one side, or at front or back the
lapped portion pulled up an inch or ',
two to give uneven length at the foot. I
JJrccoll shows a skirt of this kind in
a suit of navy blue wool poplin. The
suit has a short, loose jacket falling
Just below the hip, and the skirt is
short, narrow and plain. One edge,
from belt to hem is lapped five Inches
over the other edie, the lap coming
just at one side of the front. The
lapped edge falls several inches short
of the other edge, showing beneath it,
and small buttons run all the way
down the lap.

wristed grloves. and the effect is very
feminine and dainty. Some of the
Jackets look much like gay little
wraps or mantles with their loose-
draped lines and flowing sleeves.
Shall We kooa Wear Mitts?
Whoever thought mitts would come
in again? But then whoever dreamed
that pantalettes would return to
fat-hion? Pantalettes have been worn
under winter- costumes, though the
modern pantalettees fall just below
the knee instead of to the ankle; and
now Paris has revived mitts. Lace
mitts are worn with elbow sleeved
frocks and there is something to be
said for this quaint old fashion the
hands and forearms are covered, 6r
semi-covered, and one feels more for
mally dressed than with bare hands;
and handsome rings show to advan
tage. Rings are getting so large
that they are positively uncomforta
ble under kid gloves, but with lace
mitts you can wear an enormous ca
buchon ring very comfortably.
And. by the way. square ring set

the bodice with henna colored silk,
has panels of henna chiffon at either
side of the skirt and falling at least
six inches below it. This means that
the satin skirt is very short, for the
panels extending below it do not
reach the anklea These panels are
accordion pleated and are wide
enough to cover the satin skirt well
only a narrow 6trip of skirt show
ing at the center front and back. In
evening gowns the uneven skirt is
achieved usually by draperies of lace
or chiffon which fall considerably be
low the short skirt.
White Facings the Fad.
The Parisienne is growing as fond
of contrasting facings as was the.
soldier of the Revolutionary days.
Jackets are faced with a contrasting
color that ehows in turned back collar.
revers, cutis, pocket flaps, sash ends
and so on: and sometimes in narrow
lines like piping at the edge of the
garment. Lanvin is especially partial
to this effect and many of the Lan
vin models this spring are black
with white facings. A stunning Lan
vin tailleur of black serge has its
jacket embroidered all over in a
light scroll design in white silk and
the jacket is lined with white cash
mere of fine, light quality. A tall
rolled-down collar shows the white
facing and there is a detachable cape,
also lined with white, which may
be thrown over the back of the
jacket. Another Lanvin model is a
stunning separate coat of black satin
emtirodiered elaborately as far down
as the hips with white and fared
whfte satin which shows in facings
at collar ana culls.
It pays to keep up with sleeves:
to Know wnen kimono sleeves are in
and when set-in-arm hole sleeves
cave the ravor; to recognize raglan
sleeves as an incoming or outgoing
mode and to realize when bishop and
leg o' mutton sleeves are fancied by
Dame Fashion. Just now the rather
tight sleeve set in a small armhole
le the style and these sleeves, us
uaJly in three-quarter length, flare at
the edge to show a gathered under-
sleeve. In fact all sleeves are very
elaborate. Sometimes they are
slashed and laced together with nar
row ribbons; sometimes they have
circular flounces set on between
shoulder and elbow. Only the tailored
salt and the topcoat have plain, long
sieeves; rrocks show all sorts of gay
sleeve styles. And some frocks have
no sleeves at all. There are fetching
little taneia dresses for spring, with
itttea Dodtces and full fircular skirts;
and no sleeves, the arm emerging
from a plain armhole. Many of these
frocks show tall stock collars. The
short sleeve and high collar combina
tion la especially smart In blouses,
too!
Sleeves always make you think
about gloves, for gloves' are what
sleeves make them short or long ac
cording to sleeve lengths. You will
positively need Iong-wristeed gloves
this spring, for four-fifths of the tai
lored suits and all the frocks have
loose three-quarter sleeves if not
shorter ones. The new suit jackets,
very abort and Jaunty and in loose
gold and the effect Is that of one
huge solitaire.. Cabuchon rings set
with aquamarine, tourmaline, tur
quoise, matrix or onyx, are square in
shape of setting and some of these
big rings are worn on the middle
finger not a particularly pretty
style. And while rings are square,
earrings are in round or hoop shape.
Two new things about this spring
chapeau: the draped crown topples
over backward a wee bit and it I
a very tall crown, but in panels and
crushed down in itself. And the
mushroom brim is cut out in scallops
or what the milliners call "petal ef
fect." In fact the whole hat looks
somewhat like a big riower turned
upside down on the head as a fairy
doubtless wears her headgear. The
hat (4963) Is made of orange faille
with strappings and edge trimming
of shiny black patent leather, and the
pert little bow at the right side is
of the patent leather.
Stand-up and stick-out effects in
ostrich are not so smart, this spring,
a? softly trailing effects; and most
feathers keep on trailing till they
touch the shoulder. When the wind
blows hard you can throw a lace veil
entirely over the hat to protect the
feathers and they will crush down In
soft, becoming effect under the veil.
This new hat (43:!9) is in the flat
cap shape that fashion approves; the
crown is of black velvet and the visor
brim of black straw. The feather
trimming is in a French blue shade.
There has been a dreadful slump In
the hatpin business while women
have worn hats so low on the head
that no pins were required to keep
them on: but now somebody has
started wearing hatpins thrust
through the brim, instead of the
crown, and all the ornamental hat
pins are going like hot cakes. Fancy
hatpins are specially effective on
roll brim sailors and this new model
(2632) shows a graceful roll of brim,
with a broad bow of moire ribbon
across the back matching the moire
brim facing.
I
T IS unfortunate that so scientific
and beautiful a game as auction
should be completely spoiled at
times by the lack of comprehension
and stupid methods of a partner.
This, however, is true of all partner
ship games, and while the situation
is a trying one, one can but accept
it with equanimity and take comfort
in the fact that time I fleeting and
that at best it cannot last Indefinitely.
To heap censure and abuse upon one's
partner at such a time is worse than
useless; not only does such act de
tract from the character and high
standing of the game, but it detracts
from one's standing as a player (and
as an individual), and by putting one's
partner in a disagreeable frame of
mind it unfits him from doing the
best of which he might otherwise
be capable In the future.
The following hand which came up
not long ago is a good illustration of
the case in point that of a good
player meeting with utter rout be
cause of the lack of conception and
arrant stupidity of his partner;

Z was the dealer and the score was
love At love score the bid of a minor
suit Is supposed to embody an invita
tion for a no-trump bid. Z in this
case, however, bid the club, not in
the hope that his partner would go
to no trumps, but with the belief that
it was a game hand at clubs and
intending if his partner did shift to
no trumps to persist with clubs.
With diamonds blank, a singleton
spade and no face cards in his suit,
albeit an exceptionally long suit and
needed by ace, Z certainly did not

wish the hand to be played at no
trumps.
The pre-emptive bidder will doubt
less say that Z should have started
with' two or three clubs at the start.
Let me here say that an initial bid
of more than two of a minor suit is
so seldom made that it is given no
consideration and that an initial bid
of two in a minor rarely accomplishes
. the purpose of a pre-emptive bid,
since it can so easily be overcalled
'with two of a major, an it is not
made with such intent, but purely
and solely for informatory reasons.
It says to the partner that the hand
is well protected in all suits ut one:
that the suit bid is exceptionally
strong, and with slight assistance
from the partner should go game.
It also indicates a no-trump hand
and distinctly tells the partner to
choose between no trumps and the
suit, as at either bid game should be
assured, provided at the no-trump
bid the partner has protection in the
initial bidder's weak suit. The bid
of "two clubs" therefore would but
make more emphatic the inference Z
in this case wished to avoid.
Z therefore bid "one club" and A
"one diamond." Now as to Y. Y in
this particular hand is the offending
player throughout. From the very
start he fails to grasp the situation
and instead of being an intelligent
and helpful partner proves a com
plete handicap.
Y, of course, has no means of know
ing that his partner's bid is not In
tended as an invitation for no trumps,
and with his good protection in dia
monds (the adversary's suit), the ace,
queen and a small spade and four
cards of his partner's suit to three
honors he certainly should bid no
trumps. Instead of so doing, thus
giving his partner important infer
ences which would have helped him
in determining his future course, he
weakly said "two clubs." For every
reason Y should have bid no trumps.
Had he done so and Y had bid hearts
on the second round he could have
taken refuge in the club bid and no
harm would have been done. Then,
too, Y has two bids in his hand, the
no-trump bid and the club raise. In
able to come In with the lower val- I
ued suit on a subsequent round. This
torm of bidding is known as the
shift and is of great value, imparting
definite inferences to one's partner
and generally resulting in the hand
being played at the bid which is sus
ceptible of the best results to the side.
Another Hdvtl n t era cranapnlNt k.citU. '
ins irom tne bid of the higher valued
suit first is that if there is-no other
round of bidding and you become the
player you at least play the hand
at your better bid rather than your
poorer. Each trick at no trumps is
worth ten points, at clubs only six
enough of a difference, certainly, to
inspire a player with the desire to
use the better suit. Having a better
bid than the one your partner has
made constitutes a good and valid
reason always (save when the score
is such that game can as readily be
won at the lower bid) for naming
your suit, even though you have
good support for your parner's.
, As explained at the start, the in
itial bidder (Z) had no desire to have
the hand played at no trumps and
fully intended, had Y so bid, to per
sist with clubs. The no-trump bid,
however, would have given him Im
portant inferences as to his part
ner's strength, and would have en
couraged him to carry the club bid
almost indefinitely had this become
necessary. The raise of his club gives
inferences of minor value, not of
suficient importance to encourage
him particularly regarding his bid.
For all he knew the high-card
strength of the suit which he lacks
could easily be held by the adversary.
Y could have repaired his error
to some extent by raising to three
or even four clubs when the oppor
tunity offered ceitainly he had the
Strength to justify it but in this
particular also he fell down, as evi
denced by the further bidding.
After Y's bid of "two clubs," B bid
"two spades." Having no help for
his partner's bid, diamonds, though
genuinely good spades, this was en
tirely correct, and, in fact, what he
should have done had he had help
for his partner, spades being the
higher valued declaration.
Z went to "three clubs," and A,
having three of his partner's suit,
and pleased with the thought of hav
ing the hand played at the higher
declaration and using his suit as a
side suit, to "three spades." Y and A
passed, and Z, reluctant to relinquish
his fine suit, to "four clubs." though
the fact of his partner's, having
raised but once, was certainly not
encouraging. A promptly bid "four
spades." and Y most unexpectedly
came in with a double.
Now as to this policy. In the first
Mace Y sat on the wrong side of the
strong adversary to double (B being
the strong heart holder and wan
therefore disadvantaged. In the sec-
unu i-te ne neia two or three un
aeciarea raisers for his partner's
clubs, he had neglected to shnw hi
no-trump strength (which would have
Deen excellent for forcing, since it
would have necessitated the adver
saries bidding one' more in their suit
than he had to bid in his or re
linquish the bid). Yet in spite of
all this and of the fact tht he was
thrusting a big responsibility upon
his side, he decided his proper Youree
was a double.
Y's double-after his previous course
iuuh a so completely Dy surprise 1
mai.ne rouna nimseir in a dilemma.
His' Tirst impulse was to call "five
clubs," but realizing that his partner
had raised him but once and that
his own hand contained at least four
losers reflecting, too, that his part
ner was playing for a hundred a
trick, while he at best could score
but six, and that in order to score at
all he would have to take all but two
tricks, concluded it better to defer to
his partner's Judgment and so passed.
The hand, therefore, was played
at "four hearts," doubled. B being
the declarer and Z the player to
lead. As a matter of fact., because
of good judgment on the part of Z
and the fact of Y's strong holding
the double would have pulled off
successfully had Y not falhen down
in his play as completely as in his
bidding.
Many players in Z's position would
have led the ace of clubs on the
chance of its going through and
knowing that if it did not make then
it would not make at all. Z could
read that with his two short suits
other players as well were short
suited, so he feared to risk It and
led instead the ace of hearts. This
lead, in fact, gave Y his only chance
of pulling off his double, but he failed
to grasp the situation, and the result
of play gave B "four spades" doubled.
a total score of 140 72 for tricks, 18
for honors and 50 for making good
at a double. Had Z come out with
the ace of clubs, no play could have
prevented B from making good.
To the lead of the ace of heart
Y played queen which meant that
he could wn the next round with
the Jing or that he could ruff, so
at trick 2 Z led another heart,
winning with a small spade (trump)
If, at this stage, Y had correctly
sensed the situation and led a dia
mond Z would have won the trick
with a small trump, and Y's ace of
trumps, being a sure winner, the
double would have been successful
and instead of declarer winning 140
he would have fallen down on his
contract and Z-Y would have scored
100. Instead, however, of leading
small diamond on the chance that his
partner could ruff Y led his ace and
then his queen of trumps (spades)
won the second trump round with
the king and Y's chance was lost, B
then took every trick. Why, with 1
diamonds between his own hand and
dummy Y should not have seen his
only chance of making his double lay
in Z's being short in the suit and
having the power to ruff, is difficult
for one to understand. It was in line,
however, with Y's methods through
out. His excuse was that he did not
wish to lead up to strength in dum
my's hand, thus establishing his ace
king and jack, and that he thought
it better play to attempt to kill dum
my's ruff in clubs, and at the same
time doubtless drew two trumps for
one. The arguments which players
advance in support of their exceed
ingly poor play as in this case are
frequently quite remarkable.
Had Z played the hand at clubs,
as he would have done, had i en
abled him to diaw correct inferences
as to his holding he would have made
a erasid slam, securing a score of
172 4 2 for tricks, 30 for honors and
100 for grand slam. If to this be
added the conceded value of a game,
125 points, it makes the total 297.
This as against an adverse score of
140. or, including the value of ga
265. and for no other reason than
because of one's partner's utter lack
of judgment and comprehension.
As said at the start, such experi
ences are most trying, the unfor
tunate feature being that the good
and conscientious player suffers the
same loss as the poor player. If
the poor player could be impressed
with the fact that his blundering is
responsible for the loss and that auc
tion is a game calling for a knowl
edge of the subject and concentration
and thought and care, and would set
to work to improve his methods, some
good would be accomplished, but this,
alas, la seldom the case, and he
usually goes on in his happy-go-lucky
methods until the end first one
partner and then another going down
with him in defeat
It may safely be surmised that he
will seldom have the same partner.

ENGAGEMENT LUNCHEONS
Affairs Do Not Need to Be Gorgeous in Order to Be Every Bit as
Nice, Declares Margaret Newcomb.
1
BY MARGARET NEWCOMBE.
fjlHE week Helen Peabody visited
ner cousin sue in the city was
one round of parties, for Sue, had
announced her engagement to one of
the most popular boys in the crowd,
and It seemed as though everyone had
entered a contest to see who should
give the cleverest and most original
affair in her honor.
"It was a most gorgeous party,
mother, the announcement luncheon,"
Helen had said. "I wish I could give
something like it when I tell the girls
about Frank and me, but I don't sup
pose we could get any of the favors
or place cards around here.' It's dif
ferent living in the city," she went on,
rather disconsolately,
"Why, I am sure, my dear," her
mother had answered, "that between
us you and I can concoct an engage
ment luncheon every bit as nice as
Cousin Helen's, if we put our think
ing caps on. Let's plan one now,"
and this was the beginning of the
lovely luncheon that was given in the
Peabodys farm dining room last
spring. "
Not one or the nine girls who were
invited had the slightest idea what
was coming, for although Frank had
been rather more attentive to Helen
than to any of the others during the
months before he had gone away, they
had thought nothing about it recently.
So the whole thing was a real sur
prise. The invitations had said 1
o'clock and at Just that time they all
trooped into the big, homy dining
room, where the long table had been
laid for ten. In the center was the i
prettiest little fairy well, made from I
an old cigar box. It had been built
up on a round tin pot cover. The
cover all about the little well was
covered with green moss, which was
banked up about the sides as well,
and tiny white violets and lavender
hepaticas were really growing in it,
some of them high enough to reflect
themselves in the water, which was a
square piece of an old mirror.
Dancing about this homemade well
was a circle of the dearest little
fairies one could want to see. They
were really little 5-cent dolls with
long yellow hair, about as tall as one ,
forefinger. They were dressed in
little dresses made of white chiffon
and each one wore a tiny crown of
gilt paper with a little star pasted to
the front and a little paper wand
tipped with another star was glued to
their hands. They were connected by
a little wreath of green leaves and
early spring flowers. Of course there
was one for each guest. At each place
was a little basket made of crepe
paper with the handles made of twists
of paper, filled with salted peanuts,
which Mother Peabody insisted were
every bit as goo-d . as their more
patrician sister, the salted almonds,
if they were properly prepared.
The place cards had been made
from a box of pale pink correspond
ence cards that had been given to
Helen the Christmas before. One card
cut across two times made three
cards. On one side was written the
guest's name, and they found their
places by them. When they were
seated they turned these cards over
nd on the other side discovered the
following verse:
If you'd like to know a secret.
How Cupid shot his latest dart.
Ask tho magic well.
It will aurely tell.
For it loves affairs of the heart
