DOLLI GOES LQuB
Statesman Shopper Finfls
Hose, Criterion of Prices,
At Very, low Prices -
By OLIVE M. DOAK .
i - How far will a dollar go Is al
most as good a question as how
far Is up. but my dear reader, you
will find that there is a splendid
answer to that question In- Salem
this spring insofar as clothes and
food is concerned.' "-; t r ;'
Prices : have : "dropped . and
one does not realise the extent to
which, they " have dropped " until
one starts to buy. You ! will be
delighted to find that the same
amount which . - you ' carefully
tucked away for your . Easter
clothes this year will buy very
nearly twice- as much as it did
last year and the material la as
good or better than it was; , ; '
This week I have seen on the
racks of Salem merchants dress
es selling for $3.95 which were
made of a durable grade: of silk,
which were well made, and which
had as much style as , dresses
which sold two years ago for 12
and $15; ' - : r- rr'f'-:
I saw men's suits which last
year w'ero selling for between $35
and $45 now selling for just a Wit
over $20 and the wool in them
was a much better grade than
that used ; last year. Men's ties
which previously sold for $2 are
now selling for $1 and many of
them are hand-made ties, j
Hose Good Price Indication "
One merchant told " me that
hose was the Indication ! of all
prices In all lines of clothing.
Competition in this, line of wear
ing apparel is more intense than
in any other line and so the fluc
tuation of :price is felt .here first
Excellent Buys Offered
To Milady This Spring;
Less Extremes Are Seen
By OLIVE M.
I spring, the fresh little
touches that will make the
clothes of ! this spring different
from those of other springs, the
unusual lines that have been
evolved -from all preceding fash
ions, the bright, the gay, the
"new" will be on display in the
windows of . Salem merchants.
As all these things . cannot be
in the windows and . as those in
the windows are only . placed
there as a whet to the appetite
of the viewer .and prospective
buyer then Saturday and the
days following will be occupied
in "shopping" round, pricing,
planning and buying so -that
when Easter. Sunday has arrived
and the prohibiting hand of. the
lenten season has withdrawn all
will step forth! with ne'wlbeauty
ana freshness . In "spring out
m- as. wen as- in soul and a
fresh, spring ' physical feeling of
renewed . enthusiasm and -Tim.,
To go through Salenr shops In
anticipation of Spring - opening
is to get a thrill in advance for
the prospective buyer and it is
to experience a burning desire to
make any 'number of things on
sale ones own for there are such
pretty things, and such smart
things and all at such reason
able prices that , one can hardly
resist. .; --'v -
; "Charging" may be Avoided -.
' With a little thought this year
the working girl may be dressed
tastefully ,and attractively for
every occasion and still stay
within the ; bounds' of - her in
come, thus doing away with the
tragic habit of "charging" and
being continually In debt. -
Coats of gay color and well
made, bright knitted suits, ear
scarfs,' good looking- sport shoes J
attractive silk dresses of tailored
line are to be found In, Salem
shops and which when combined
will make a sport or street cos
tume, to rejoice the heart of any
modern 'young maid.
i There is one thing to beware
of at. all times lnfbuying clothes,
especially if yo do .not have
much money to fcpend, and that
is stay away from the extreme.
This spring's fashions seem to,
have less of this objectionable
quality than the,, styles for some
time. The style is different but
It is not so - over-emphasised. -
" ir la possible to buy clever
evening gowns in Salem shops
which would be difficult to place
as to price once-they were on an
attractive figure, and my dears,
only a few days ago there was
one dress on display which quite
amazed one for its -good lines
and the price of 151. ;
There are also some whose
beauty - quite. Upset one and
whose prices- go in the $50 to
$78 range, but, at. that, these
same ' dresses - would have been
in the - $60-$100 range a year
or so ago. r : rv. : !:---

EASTER SEASON HERE
Marl Yow FiriK
VARjffiTY M : KEYNOTE
" Tour Eswter; outfit is very;ini
portant, not only because it will
get much attention from those In
terested in what you are wearing,
but because it Is doubtless your
first splurge into a spring ward
robe, and should be chosen care
fully, so that It will be, a keynote
around which : you may. build
most of your" new outfits, partic
ularly so far . as . color scheme
goes.. . . . . - , . ,
If yoa like the ssortif type of
costume, yon will find a tweed
suit with a .short, slightly- fitted
Jacket, , hip-yoke skirt, and tail
leur ' blouse most serviceable.
Wear with it a . tweed beret to
match, or if you don't find one
and this same merchant told me
that he is now buying a stocking
which sells for $1 and is a better
grade of hose than that which he
could buy for, the same price be
fore the - war shot prices sky
high." .:,., .'..- . -r-; -.J
All the . merchants say that
clothing can now be bought for
the same or perha'ps less than it
could in the days before the war.!
And this is , true - of all goods
whether It is ready- tp wear or
foods by the yard; whether it is
shoes or fur coats, handkerchiefs
or "undies' V. it's all the same!
prices are at least one third low
er and in many things all of a
half and sometimes even less
than that reduction. ' J
So . my" fair reader, take your
little savings, or if you are lucky,
your, big savings, and fare forth
with a happy heart and return
with clothes and bursting enthus
iasm over what you - have been
able to buy.
Frills. Flonnces Shown
There are handsome things In
delicious colors, many - frills,
flounces, and fitted - lines, that,
properly made, will do . wonder
ful things for any-figure.1 Just
recall the 'skimpy" little .things
of several years ago queer ,how
ideas, of beauty change! . v
As. to shoes which make such
an Important note- in any ward
robe be it man's or woman's,' you
will find an t infinite choice. The
.colors, this year tare more sub
dued and leather tal.es the lead.
Sandals, and .low heel oxfords
for sport, high heel or semi-high
heel oxfords for the street,, kid
pumps . and .low. slippers for- eve
ning and in most any color de
sired and all ' these are at your
command in Saleri. shops. -
Hose values are quite amazing
and. colors, are. delightful. To
see the hose and let them 'slide
through, ones hands is to be
tempted to buy. Sport hose con
tinue to offer most Interesting
designs and weaves which add
much to any sport, outfit. J
Pigskin Gloves Popular i
Pigskin gloves ' f or r sport and
street wear have made a .popular
appearance . with.. the . unusual
popularity of suits. Gloves, suits
and , purses . should . be L of the
same color to carry out a smart
ensemble idea. .. '.- ..
Speaking of purses you will be
delighted with the numerous
shapes, ; sizes and . colors from
which -you will have to choose
and' again .you .will.be delighted
with' the low I prices from which
to choose. Tooled leather in de
signs that hare. been worked out
in color completes one of the

tion. Tapestry has, a place in
purses but is not sa popular as

hand-woven effects . which are
also popular and always -will be, ,
no doubt. .
Hats will prove fun toi ; o
shopping for. They are in most
any style which yon " might like
to consider. - No brims, much
brim, brims that turn up and a
few that turn down, and what
ever your choice it will be safe
from the standpoint - of popular
style. The - tiny-little "off the
face" bonnets. are a happy fad
of the hour. " Perhaps the great
est difference in hats to be seen
in Salem shops this year is the
material from j which the hat Is
made. ' Lace, linen,' lacquer
straw and novelty straws all
play an : Important part j in the
making of smart hats. !" .;'-.

be one of the pleasures of which
yoa will not want to be deprived

suit, is a gray tweed a matching
tweed bag, if possible, or one in
gray or tan leather. 'If you want

don't forget a vivid scarf.
- Another, smart suit though
not of a definitely sporty nature
is the . English lounge , suit,
with which you can wear a ling
erie blouse, and a fur scarf or a
gay silk ' scarf a smart - little
English felt sport hat, - walking
oxfords - and pull-on gloves, with

fashions, yoa-will probably pre?
fer an ensemble, either with skirt
and smartly fitted blouse of print,
plaid, checked or monotone creps
-or with a one-piece dress .of
crepe or sheer woolen. A printed
frock worn with' a three-quarter
jacket lined in the fabric of the
dress is very good looking, and
qute dressy if the coat has a'fur
collor. The fur collar may be
either a scarf of flat fur, , or a
shawl collar of soft fox in a nat
ural color, or dyed pastel.' If you
select cae of the new. collarless
neckline types, wear a fur piece
of fox, mink, marten, or sable
or one of the clever separate cra
vat efect scarfs of flat fur. It
yourc ostume is in monotone, or
in a combination of two solid col
ors you shuld strive for still an
other contrast in your hat, bags,
shoes,, gloves' and hose. If you're
short, . It Is wiser to have your
hat match the jacket, thereby
giving you -added height which a
contrasting color cuts short- and
leave the job of color accent to
your other accessories. - '.
.If your ' wardrobe must be so
limited, that you don't feel you
can nse A suit or ensemble to ad
vantage (although very smart
ones'ean be gotten as inexpensive
ly as $16.75) you may prefer to
wear a dress and - coat in " the
"Easter parade. Here your range
is unlimited, and whether ' you
want a sport, tailored; dressy, or
formal afternoon outfit, you - will
find a plentiful variety of styles
to choose from. ; .
; Your dress may be , of knitted
fabric, sheer woolen, flat -crepe,
canton crepe, - striped, checked,
printed, or plaid silk, or even , of
lace if it will be worn. as. a fqrmal
afternoon frock. Let its color be
that which flatters you most,' and
don't hesitate to select. One 'of the

deep tones. -These colors may

As for the coat It should be

It is usually best to choose a
hat that matches your coat, un
less you're always atendlng lunch
eons and after noon teas where
you will have fo wear your hat
with your frock minus the coat.
In that case, match' your " hat to
the predominating color in -your
dress There are so many flatter-:

some simply tailored1, some dar-'
ingly extreme that yoa should .
use your best Judgment In making
your choice. The beret in7 Its

Brimmed bats are- smart, and
have changed tremendously, be
cause they dare to' go off at ang

in front, at the-side, or all the
way arolnd at the back. "Halo bats
are very youthful, whether in
straw, felt, ribbon, 1 or fabric.
They are just cap-shaped bit",
cleverly fitted to the head, with a
braided or Tolled band that goes
all around the head halo fashion.
Your, choice of shoes depends
entirely on youri taste for activi
