8 THE SCRANTON REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, 1936 BP Mrs. Jarrett Eleanor Jarrett's Troubles Are Attributed to Her Failure To Be Sport About Discipline I Feminine freedom from ages - old tabus is an accomplished fact. Is the world exacting a price for woman's new status? That's the question examined today by Helen Welshimer in another article on LADIES IN DISTRESS. Second of a series of six daily articles, it deals with the case of Eleanor Holm Jarrett. By HELEN WELSHIMER Y HEN Eleanor Holm Jarrett, former star of the American Olympic swimming team, drank some champagne while aboard the S. S. Manhattan, bound for Berlin, she plunged into , such deep water not even her able strokes could bring her safely to shore. First removed from the team for breaking training, she now has been barred from competition in any amateur athletic events. She knew the U. S. Olympic athletes were given rules to obey, for the sake of God and country and the team. She knew that a bedlam would have oc curred had everyone of them gone haywire while IwK M M the ship sailed on to Hamburg. KY ' H You must assume, too, that Eleanor Holm Jar - mm . Ms . i .. .... rett knew the rules of the game, lor mis was ner third Olympic trip. She knew that her very presence implied submission to regulations that were aimed less at curbing the conduct of any one person than at the welfare of the nearly 400 ath letes on the Olympic squad. Yet she got into hot water instead of the cool reaches of the swimming meet. Whether or not Chairman Avery Brundage is too severe; whether or not Mrs. Jarrett's apologies should have been heard with a more sympathizing ear, is not the focal point of this discussion. We are interested in women, in trouble, and how they got that way! , Women of Yore Wouldn't Have Defied Regulation FORTY years ago, when the first modern Olympic games were held, it is doubtful that had women participated, any one of them would have sustained punishment for infractions of rules. Not because of lack of disciplinary measures, but because woman had not achieved the independence of today which makes her dare to break them. It is splendid, this new bravery and daring of the modern woman. Not for one minute would the 20th century place women in the position of fearful servitude, in which they looked up to men as their lords and conquerors instead of their equals and companions. However, when woman uses her new freedom to smash a prescribed rule, to which she has pledged observance, you must admit that she cut down the cherry tree with her own red hatchet! It's a new world, a happier world, a freer world in which women live today. There are few closed doors. Yet there are restraints on conduct, and there will always be. For the benefit of the multitude, certain laws are necessary. Those who can live happily without them, who can take life in their stride without restriction must sacrifice for the sake of the great throng. It always has been so. It is a lesson which woman, as she climbs higher in the professional and economic world, is learning. Men Are Accustomed to Abiding by Disciplinary Rules MEN are accustomed to rules of training. They are part of their curricula. Women, newer to sports, may need a little more time to learn that the game is the thing, whether the event is a high school basketball game or a competition at Berlin. They must realize that sacrifice of personal inclinations, though they know the things they do will in no way impede their progress, is part of the code. It is the same courage, skill, and fearlessness that caused Mrs. Jarrett to win her berth on the Olympic swimming team, that caused her to lose it. Only in this 20th century could there have been world - wide athletics for women. It is woman's own courage of convictions whether she is right or wrong that is getting her into deep water, quite often, this Summer! NEXT: Plight of women workers.

An elaborate program of games and novelties has been arranged, and dancing will be featured. A chicken dinner will oe served from 11:30 to 2:30 by women of the parish. The pub lic is invited to attend. By MARIAN YOUNG TEW YORK. Daylight dining, dresses ' have a special niche in the wardrobe " of one whose social life doesn't sink into oblivion during the hot months. You can't wear a very formal evening gown to a dinner that ends up with demitasse in the garden, to a sidewalk cafe or to a country club dance. You need an ankle - length something that looks festive but not pretentious. For just such occasions there are dressy shirtwaist frocks of sheer organza, dotted ' swiss, cotton lace and other summery fab - ricks. These have little puff sleeves or shoulder capes or draperies that take the place of both. It's smart to pick one in navy or black with crisp little white pique or linen collar and matching touches. The navy organza daylight dining dress, sketched here today, is sprinkled with diminutive white stars (not dots). It molds the waistline and hips, billows about the feet, is trimmed with white grosgrain and white buttons. Note the charm of the puff sleeves. It's worn over a navy taffeta slip that rustles when you walk or dance. Another type of costume that is rapidly becoming a necessity is the hostess gown. It looks like a happy cross between a dinner and an evening gown, is fashioned from a pretty luxurious fabric and is worn in your own home. Mainbochcr and Helene Yrande, of Paris, have done some unusually interesting hostess gowns. One of Mainbocher's models white organdy, embroidered in large - sized eyelets bound with green satin is the kind of romantic creation of which every woman dreams. The top of the dress is very simple (soft bodice with moderately full sleeves and a narrow belt at the normal waistline), but the skirt is dramatic. Two flounces one moderately full and placed well above the knees, the other quite voluminous and attached near the bottom are used to achieve this effect. The bottom flounce forms a tiny train. Three little green bows down the front make the hostess gown not - too - formal. Helene Yrande favors chiffon or tulle. Yards and yards of yellow chiffon make the sTiirt of one model, shown here at right in photograph. This falls in soft folds about the body and ends in a short train at the back. The waist is defined by rows of tiny tucks and the nudity of the bodice (two strips of chiffon which form points at the back, the front and under the arms) is offset by the addition of luminous black net half - sleeves, starting just above the elbow. Does Double Duty Yrande does less formal hostess gowns, too. She starts off with a foundation dress, cut on simple lines, with fullness from knees to hem and a short train. Over this she flings two scarfs of chiffon, allowing for original color combinations, and destined for strictly informal entertaining. If, after dinner, someone suggests going out for a bit of dancing, the hostess simply removes the scarfs and, over the same foundation, puts on a strictly tailored jacket in rich, dark taffeta. Division of Work Among Other Organs Combats Kidney Disease By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN Dr. Fishbein will answer personally any questions sent to him by readers of The Republican. His address. 435 North Dearborn Street, Chicago, 111. The first step in overcoming a kidney disorder is to determine the cause of the trouble, and the next is to reduce as much as possible the amount of work that the kidney has to do. In seeking the cause, the doctor examines not only the kidney but all other organs and tissues of the body, since their .failure to function may have affected the kidney. The doctor does this by making suitable chemical examinations and determining the chemical changes that have taken place in the patient's blood. , Rest, for the kidney, Is cspe - PENN STATE ACADEMY OF BEAUTY CULTURE 318 Adams Avenue (Opp. Town Hall) Offers a Complete Course in BEAUTY CULTURE Under the Supervision of Experienced Teachers - Licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Instruction.

This rest may be supplied by shifting the work of the kidney to other organs, such as the skin and the bowels, and helping the disturbed organ carry on the little work it has to do. If the patient rests in bed, the kidney unquestionably wilt be benefited. Increase in the amount of sweating will give the skin an opportunity to do some of the work ordinarily done by the kidney. Use of mild laxatives and enemas also may shift to the bowel some of - the usual work of the kidneys. Finally, a carefully selected diet is especially important. The old - fashioned milk diet is not satisfactory, because it may provide too much fluid, or too much protein, for the individual case. The diet, invariably, depends upon results of the study made by the doctor. In his examination, the doctor will consider the amount of salt, water, and protein that should be permitted. If there is an accumulation of fluid in the body, such as occurs in the condition called dropsy, it is necessary to control the intake of salt and fluid. If there is a great rise in the amount of urea, or of nitrogen, in the blood, the doctor will have to cut down the amount of protein taken into the body.

June Jenkins, who appeared in the "Ghost of The St. James" plays the part of the scatterbrained mother, while Ruth Harvison who took one of the leading roles in "Growing Pains" plays the intellectual daughter. The athletic son is portrayed by Frank Webb, graduate of Carnegie Institute of Technology and former member of the Cleveland Players. He has appeared at Buck Hill as Matey in "Dear Brutus" and as Carlton Craig in "Where's The Fire." Barbara Herendeen plays the role of the school girl daughter, while Jerry Holman takes the part of the younger son, originally portrayed by Noel Coward. Sarah Wheeler is cast as Mrs. Crombie, a friend of the family who conies for a visit with her daughter Faith, played by Nancy Aitken, Jim Studdiford is the butler.
