7th contuins nn article rlr-criptivr of
tho latest dance taken up by Lok An
geles nml San Francisco society,
something entirely different from tho
so-called "rag" dances. It is a so
cial dance primarily, and though con
taining n few fancy blcps nnd figures,
is not difficult to master.
The Wilcox xlid Is the name, the
dance having been comjiosed by MLsh
Jane Heers for Kiln Wheeler Wilcox,
who has added fcomo oints nnd
dnneed it nt n number of funcliom
given in her honor. Chnliff, one time
winch of the MetrnMlitau ballet,
complimented the iwetess very highly
ujon tho Wilcox glide. The muslo for
the dance was composed by Professor
Ilorher, and several Medford ladies
already have copies in their music
cabinets. Mrs, J. V. MncClntchio in
trodneed tho dance nt nn informal
home party recently nnd it imme
diately "mnde n hit." Following arc
Position Ilegular ballroom pod

foot to right side, point, step right
foot in buck of left, step left to left
side, .step right foot in front of left
Second step- ''Hop slide"-hop on
left foot, Mide right lo to right side,
bringing heels together. While, the
woman ii dancing this solo, her part
ner continues to keep the time and
ihythm of the dance, or to dnnee
nfter her, but without taking hold of
her hands until the beginning of n
new measure or until a lime indicated,
when he rejoins the lady.
Third Step "T two-step turn,"
slide, right, left, right, left, turn hulf
way again to make a complete tutu
HeK'nt all from beginning.
Tho lady's partner goes through
the snme steps, beginning with tho op
posite foot, however.
Prof. Chnliff nays "The Wilcox
Olide," "The One Step," "Tho Frisco
Walk," Iheso are. some of tho new
dances of the moment. They nre not
difficult if one has n good sense of
rjthm and the love of dancing. With
out these two factors no one can
dnneo well, und most people who lack
rhythm und tho joy of living never
wnut to dunce anyhow."
If tho ludv uses a scarf the effect
is prettier and more graceful,

The Pan-IIellcnio Society met
March 8 at the Woman's Rest Itoom.
The muin topic for discussion was

rest hooms nnd increasing their pat
ronage. Two rooms arc how com
fortably furnished nnd tbey were well
appreciated Saturday, March 15,
when a chafing dih suprfcr was

convenience of business women who
work Saturday evruing.

How would you equip a model
laundry What is tho chemical
aualysls ot soap! Give the test
which Indicates which, bluing will
roak'o your clothes yellow? Does the
wicker basket lend Itself to proper
sterilization? T These and scores of
other Important questions were an
swered at the meeting ot the homo
economics department on Wednesday
of this week. Tho chemistry ot the
household, especially In connection
with the laundry, or the cleaning and
restoring of textiles, proved an thing
but a commonplace subject. Uy a
very clever test those present were
shown the effect of an alkali on ani
mal and vegetable fibres as found In
wool and cotton. That bad Iron rust
stains on cotton or linen can be re
moved was ulso demonstrated satis
factorily. So much of real benefit
comes out at each meeting of thU
department, the members feel tbey
cannot ufford to miss any ot the pro
grams. The real object ot a public
nottco of these meetings Is to Indi
cate to the women of Medford the na
ture of tho work undertaken and ex
tend an invitation to them. In all
of the Women's club movement In tho
country tho home ecouomtcs is the
strongest department. Magazlues
und newspapers mention trequeutty
their share In tho real activities of
the. world. It will not long be the
caso that tho college womon aud
thoso with u broader outlook on life
uro the only ones to realize the dig
nity ot home-making as a profession.
