morals was advocated by Harry A.
Smoot, general superintendent of the
Juvenile Protective association, in
his reKrt presented at the annual
meeting of the association yesterday. J
Declaring that prevailing styles no

"One walking up and down our
streets, especially in the downtown
district, cannot help but be impress

styles in dress which A young girls
are prone to wear must surely be
contributing causes to delinquency,"
said Mr. Smoot. "Frequently every

ired Wichman, erstwhile manager
and general factotum of the Grants

fused to hire a lqwyer and went in
and managed his own case. He call
ed for a jury and put up six good,
round, hard dollars. This is where
the trouble comes in. He won his
case and wanted his jury money

LONDON, Nov. 1. Gray is to be
the winter color for men's clothes
not a silver gray, such as was popu
lnr during the summer, but a steel
gray. So affirm the experts, who
from London and the provinces are

resist strenuously any drastic
changes in style. The experts were in
earnest consultation yesterday over
the rounding of the lapel edges of a
morning coat. A matter of serious
debate, too, was the binding of anoth
er lapel with ribbon instead of braid.
A little point the well-dressed man
must look to this winter in a cont
which bears the hall mark of being
