Fashion designers took advantage
of woman's credulity and patriotism
during the war, according to Lady
Duff Gordon, and made her believe
that the short skirt was a necessity

peaoe and plenty will re-create the
demand for longer draperies.
Since 'her ladyship, commonly
known aa Lucille, is an authority,
only a brave soul would question her
wisdom. 'But most Americans, male
and female, will hope that she is
wrong. ' 1

cadets to West 'Point, Representative

JAP LABORERS AWAKLN
Toklo, June 10. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) The in
creasing tendency of the Japanese
workers to assert their rights and to
interest themselves in socialism is
causing leading Japanese to study
the means of meeting this labor
problem. It Is pointed out that
strikes are liable to lead to danger
ous violence, as in the rabe of the
rice jriots last year.
The Herald of Asia says that there
la a considerable element affected toy
socialist theories, but that owing to
the severe repression imposed by the
authorities there Is no means of
knowing how ttCr socialism has
spread. The journal adds: "That the
bacteria exists here, there la no
doubt It is kept under so far, but
H only smoulders, ready to break
out on occasion. If socialism can
not legitimately raise its head, then
it will try to do so Illicitly, and the
result is bolshevism and anarchy."
The journal recommends immedi
ate and effective improvement of la
bor condition in line with the sug
gestions of the league of nations, a
political educatiqnal reform, the
elimination of bureaucratic methods
and a true restoration of the ideal

In the earlier duys of Japan it was
popularly supposed that any one
gazing on the sacred emperor would
be struck blind. Accordingly his face
waa always veiled by a fine bamboo
mat when an audience was granted.
As late as 191 .1, on the occasion of
the coronation at Kioto, photographs
