just nine inches above the toe line is
the proper fall length for this gar
ment. What it lacks in length, how
ever, it will more than make up in
width. .Six or seven yards round is the
average circumference of the hem.
Just to bring a bit of brightness into
the lives of all save the blind many
skirts are lined with a vivid scarlet,
green, blue, or, orange silk from the
hem to the knee. This glimpse of color

The same tint used for the skirt
lining also faces up the inside of the
long flaring bell sleeves and touches
up the neck line and the pockets.
Everything seems to be striving for
the higher life as the days grow shorter.
The skirts and collars are climbing to
ear tips and hats are going them bet
ter. Some of the collars shown are nothing
short of amazing. They are cut like
deep flaring cuffs and stand up uni
formly around the head. It may be an
open secret that lovely woman has two
legs to stand on but whether she has
a mouth and a chin now remains a dark
mystery thanks to these new collars.

Miss Helen Calbreath and her beauti
ful mount, Susie-Seal, are fast friends,
according to tho Oregon . Journal.
"Susie-Seal is a perfect little lady,"
affectionately stated the mistress, w jen
the camera found them out together
hunting a few especially green and ten-
der tufts of grass. "In the busy life
of the studio," said Miss Calbreath,
who is a piano teacher, "there is no
relaxation or exercise that caii . com
pare with horseback riding."
Miss Calbreath is one of the most
capable, ambitious and thoroughly in
dependent girls among tiie many tal
ented professional women of the city,
and her advice seems to have a mes
sage. She ilias traveled extensively
abroad, and in the eastern states, and
has been a keen observer.
"There is no companion for the open
like a horse whose unobtrusive presence
seems a part of it all. Then the ex
ercise is so healthful.
"An exhilirating gallop over a coun
try road! and all tho cares and worries
of a moment before are gone, the mind
is free and rested, and 'all is well with
' ' With a party of friends I covered a
route on horseback this summer from
Portland to Tillamook and on to As
toria, which most of previously had
taken by motor. We all declared the
horseback riding to be far the more
enjoyable trip. We wandered along,
peeping into every nook and corner of
the wonderful wildness along the road.
The horses were keen for the new road
they were traveling and seemed to enter
into the trip as an exploration lark.
"Dancing, golf, tennis and kindred
spurts may all oivtrihute to the grace
ad charm of a girl's carriage, but a
brislv gallop in the wind will bring col
or to the checks and an open happy,
healthy countenance that no other sport
on enrth can touch."

The difference between a marine and

sergeant W. B. Schuman, of the
Western Reeruiting division of the
United States Marine Corps, has estab
lished a recruiting station for the
navy, with rooms in the postoffice
building. This will perhaps become a
permanent recruiting station for the
marine corps, and any young man who
has ambitions to spend four years, not
on the big ships firing the big guns,
but iii the marine corps, would do well
to call on Sergeant Schuman. After a
young man is once accepted, he may
have the opportunity of becoming a
gunner, and again,' if his ability does
not run in that line, he may never
touch a big gun, and never serve oir a
cruiser or battle ship.

motion is to corporal at $21 a month,
and next to sergeant at $30 a month,

cruiting station will have the following

30 miles from (San Francisco to the re

Girls of Willamette
Enjoyed Short Hike
Thursday the girls of Willamette as
sembled at Katon hull at 5 o'clock and
started out cu a hike, carrying their
lunch with tham. They journeyed to
the Polk county side of the river south
of the bridge and there built a camp
fire and proceeded to roast their "hot
dogs." College songs were song and
talks were made by the cider girls.
The hike wns a means of all getting
acquainted aud it was thoroughly en
joyed by the "rookeeses." Tho crowd
returned about 7:30.

than anything else to cause the newly
arrived "rooks" to have a warm and
tender feeling for upper classmen.
Speeches by the most popular men jn

eats for the occasion.

years, he is retired on three-fourths pay,
