NEW YORK Consider the jumper dress! There's a fashion for you that's as American as the football ames where it's going to be seen a lot this fall. It's not just a sports fashion, though. Rut a casual sort of dress. One that fits into the sports scene just as well as into the less formal atmosphere of the school or college girl and the young business woman It ha a neatness and precision about it that, makes it look right sitting behind the typewriter desk ... or poring over a pile of math or English books. This same neatness and precision puts it among the best golfing fashions and gives it a place in the informal daytime wardrobe of the housekeeper. There's a comfortable feeling to it. too, that hard workers and sportswomen appreciate. In the wide, ! loose arm holes and the softly full skirt. It's easy to wear . . .no difficult lines about it. Color Contrast And it gives a chance to get the fashionable contrasting color note into a costume . . . with the dress of one color and the blouse in another tone of that color. Easy to vary these color combinations, too, just by changing the blouse. Of course the blouses that go with Jumper dresses have the same neat, clear-cut lines that the dress itself i has. The shirtwaist type with tail- orcd collar and sleeves goes best . . . and is best liked by fashion-knowing women. With a jumper dress of fine jersey, soft tweed or sheer wool, or of j velveteen and these are the most-j in-fashion materials for jumpers ! and with blouses of jersey, satin or ' silk crepe . . . you've & costume I that gives you fine service. Matching Jackets Some of these dresses have matching jackets. Simple little cardigans that turn the dress into a perfectly good street or campus suit. We've had one of these sketched at the left. There are lots of different kinds. Some with the rounded neckline of the one at the right. Others with rounded necklines that are even deeper. Still others with deep V's or square-cut necklines.

Piano Proves Home Problem Placing of Musical Instrument Is Important Issue For Interior Decorator By .IL'LIA BLANSHARD NEA Service Writer EW YORK Arranging a room so that the piano is located in the psychologically perfect spot is a matter well calculated to tax a professional interior decorator and strike fear into the heart of any ordinary home-maker. It must be right, both for beauty's sake and health's 3ake. Reversing the order of these, there are certain places which no piano should be put, because they are likely to hurt the piano itself. Pianos should never be put against radiators or pipes that are hot because the temperature is very bad for the casing and various and, sundry of the mechanical parts. They should never be put near enough windows so they get draughts or dampness on them. They should never, because of possible cold and dampness, be backed against an outside wall, but should be put either away from the wall slightly or eLse against inside walls. This taken into consideration, the matter of the beauty of the room is of primary importance. No room is successful when the piano hits you in the eye the minute you enter. Since pianos hav a way of locking over-sized for modern homes, the best way to counteract this is to arrange your other furniture in such groups that they ap proximate the importance and size of the piano. The shape and size of your room and the other pieces of furniture you have in the room determine the latitude you have in solving your piano-placing problem. Certain plans, however, might prove sug gestive. An oblong room that has win dows on both ends, a door onto the porch off one side and doors to both the hall and dining room on the side, across from the porch doors, has its grand piano placed a little distance out from the wall at one end. Directly in front of the side of the piano, and practically ars long as the piano, a handsome, hand-carved library table is placed, with lamps, magazines, flowers and a row of books. One big arm chair is placed at the end of the table. at the keyboard end of the piano. This makes a kind of music room nook for the piano and, since the room Is long enough, proves most successful.

A WICKS Anniversary This Week rN THE DAYS when a public drinking fountain was as necessary a part of a town as hitching rack, the Woman's Club of Homestead was active in civic affairs and presented a fountain to the city and later founded the first playground. Until the Carnegie Steel Company took over the playground the clu wpported it. Club members were also instrumental in establishing the Frick Park in Homestead. The Homestead Woman's Club, which is the oldest club in the vi cinity, is celebrating its thirty- fourth anniversary this wek in connection with the Old Homestead Golden Jubilee. . Document, pictures and maps are being displayed this week in one of the department store windows of Homestead, in connection with the jubilee, showing the part the club has played in the civic activites. The display was arranged by a group of club members who were born in Homestead and whose parents also were from there. They are Mrs. Jesse Williams, the chairman, Mrs. THE STORY 0 OF SUE a Margery Hale Sarah Wishes Ted Happiness She Tries to Laugh and Die So Sue Decides to Help Her Do It 7 FTER that, Sarah seemed to watch life from a great distance, when she knew anything about it at all. Once in a lucid interval she understood that Ted was asking about her. She knew that no one could come in. But she thought it would be rather sporting to wish' him luck and love. Since she was going to die anyway . . . Hadn't she made her will? And nurses didn't let people who were semi-conscious make wills unless they knew that they were needed . . . She might as well enjoy one more scene before the curtain swung down. She was going to leave everything. She was just a spectator now. A ghost sitting on a fence watching the parade. The funeral parade She turned her head, whose black curls spread out in dusky shadows against the pure white pillow. She opened her dark eyes and motioned to the nurse. She was stronger suddenly. The sense of the dramatic was reacting to this last curtain call, she thought, without knowing that she did. Ted came in, hesitantly. "You didn't expect to be admitted, did you, Ted?" she asked. "Usually a corpse has to be exclusive, wait for the undertaker. I just wanted to wish you happiness and hope that you have orange juice and oatmeal this one for an upright piano, is to place the piano along one wall. nearer the entrance door than the middle of the wall. Beyond the piano, the corner of the room contains a large armchair, upholstered in a merry print, a table and lamp by it and a gay rug with the armchair's colors in it, in front of the fireplace which faces you when you come in. Your eye skips beyond the piano on your right and lights on the cozy corner just beyond. Without a fireplace, however, other arrangements are tremendous ly successful. If your room has enough length along one side to place the piano mid-way, with a davenport group beyond where listeners may rest in peace and enjoy the music, then that arrangement has a way of flattering the piano's presence and seemingly bestowing a certain graciousness upon the whole room. The davenport unit, however, must be well-balanced, in good tasle and dignified and formal enough to be a fit mate for the piano with which it, must liv. In addition to furniture grouping th"re are other matters of interior decoration that a piano governs. It is a mistake first of all, to crowd much on to a piano or to hang many pictures by it. Knickknacks should have no place atop a piano. A few flowers might. Or a handsome single piece of pottery or crystal. Enormous rooms with rich furnishings sometimes use shawls or tapestries to throw over a piano decoratively. The average home should try none of this. It looks cheap and gaudy, usually. A single lovely painting above a piano, or a rich print, is a perfect foil for the regal elegance of a lovely instrument. Even with perfect indirect lighting a lamp is needed by a piano. But aside from these, it is much better to restarin your decorative instinct for train it upon other parts of the room than that where your piano sits.

"I don't understand . . . "Ted began. Sarah laughed. "My mind isn't wandering. I'm taking my final breath . . and it hurts like blazes, too ... to congratulate you. You know, wedding bells, then a funeral dirge. That's life. Can't you say thank you? It's expected!" "I'm not engagedl" The words came out In such sudden surprise that for a second Sarah hesitated. Then she remembered that nothing mattered now. She was a ghost, sitting on a fence, as the parade went by . . . "Of course you are." Her voice was so light a breeze could have blown it away. "And I'm so very, very glad. And now, I need some sleep. I never died before so I don't just exactly know how it's done." She was still smiling as he left the room. Then her smile faded gradually, and her breath came gaspingly. It had taken all her strength to talk like that ... she didn't even know what she had said . . . Oh, yes, she had congratulated him . . . the blackness was closing in ... it was like a closet where she had been locked for some punishment when she was very small. In a minute somebody would turn the key . . . After that she didn't know anything. "She's out of her head," Ted told Sue. "But she's laughing. She wants me to . . . " Then he stopped. "I heard her," Sue answered. "Joan's nice ... I don't- know her very well. But Sarah and I like her hair. Sarah dyed her hair red once to pose as a waitress. Remember?" "My God. why doesn't someone do something?" There was terror in Ted s voice now.' Next: .lark comforts Sue.
