Time was when a gown was not

came the age of leather, when

leather trimming. Until at last

was offered and declared emanci-
pation by wearing their frocks as
clmple as a Pilgrim's gown.
The one-piece, sHp-on model took
the world of fashion by storm. It
was the reversion to simplicity

Summer frocks especially boasted
of their simplicity until they fairly
resembled the housemaids apron

model, so designers have taken that
popular model and transformed It
into something unusual by chang
ing its silhouette.

find themselves unpopular.
Each of us should strive td be
herself. Too often, girls will set
op a sort of Ideal person in their
minds and then strivo to be as
nearly a duplicate as possible. This
suppresses one's Individuality and
eventually destroys the natural'
' charm which nature .intended ; for
our personalities to express.
If yon are one of those fluffy lit
tle - girls . who should express all
that Is light and dainty, you are
probably idealizing the statuesque
beauty who would give much for
your petite charm.
Be yourself! That is ray first
secret of charm. When you hare

your charm assets. . We - all have
them. It is a matter of discover
ing them, then making the most of
what nature haa bestowed.
When I speak of nature's gifts
I da not necessarily mean her gifts
of beauty in face or' figure. One of
the most charming women I havo
ever known was lacking In most of
the physical refinements we im
agine Quite necessary for charm.
Her charm lay-in her gracious man
ner, her soothing voice, her way
of greeting new acquaintances and
making them feel . quite at home
when she was hostess.
The attributes that made this
woman so popular, may well be cul
tivated by any glri who strives for
the same laureL
