(Copyright, 1020, by Htyle Hmirccs.) NEW YORK, Nov. 4.—Tim three- quarter length evening wrap, which made Its initial bid for favor during the summer, has become tho most 1 portant development for winter. Moat often It is of black velvet, but occasionally sapphire hluo Is chosen, and still more infrequently a light color to match a gown, such as pule pink, blue or green. Its most luxurious expression la in all-white—velvet with white fox. The silhouette of these wraps follows Bimllar lines—they »rc drawn tmiigly about the hips, either plain or handed with a wide border of while fox. The collars and cuffs are usually of the fur, and the former may bo a standing col lar of the Paquln type, or else the fur frames the front of the wrap itnd Is "squared" across to suggest a muff. Sometimes a self yoke or little flying panels from either shoulder are added. The sleeves are generally wide, their width emphasized by the fur. It seemed last season as If the different phases of tho black and while evening wrap had been exhausted, hut thu first formal events of tho winter m-a- eon immediately established tula UH a favored combination in wraps which had a distinctly new aspect. While the majority of the wraps observed thus far are of black velvet, 'they do not always form a part of an ensemble. They give this appcaruncu, however, since they are moat fruquviit- ly worn with a black gown, net, black satin, velvet or chiffon. Thu black gowns of these fabrlcn and white gowns In satin or net uru preminently important. SCORE OF NEW MjEMBERS INITIATED BY Y. W. H. A.

A delicious and nourishing lunch- con dish for Juniors who hurry homo from school Is made of rice and tomatoes, well seasoned and suvory with cheese. If children dislike tomatoes nerved plain or In any obvlouflly lomnto fashion, a dish which combines them with Homo other material often is necessary to Introduce this valuable vegetable into the diet. Since scientists assviro UB that tomatoes can be cooked without damage to their vitamins, canned and baked dishes should be freely used. Luncheon rice and tomatoes nerved with ahrcdded cabbage, lettuce, endive or cress furnishes a complete meal for adults nn well as children. The cheese used in the mixture makcH meat unnecessary. Illc.o and Tomatoes. Two cups cooked rice, 2 cups tomato pulp, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons butter, 1-3 pound grated cheese, 2 tablespoons minced sweet pepper, 2 tablespoons minced celery, 1 tablespoon onion juice, 1-4 cup buttered crumbs. nub tomatoes through a coarse sieve to remove.seeds. Combine rice and tomatoes and add Bait, minced pepper, celery, onion juice and sottp.n- cd (not melted) butter. Mix thoroughly and put a layer into a well buttered baking dish. Add a layer of grated cheese and continue layer for layer until all is uried. Then cover with buttered Crumbs and bake 30 minutes in a moderate oven. Serve from baking dish. Care should be taken that tho rice for thiH dish is not overcooked. Overcooked rice will produce a watery dish while undercooked rice will absorb some of tho tomato juice and the dish will bo firm and attractive.

NEW YORK, Nov. 4.—You'd never suspect how very Victorian London has become unless, you glimpsed tho now cUmters of curlB, "buns", anil whatnots recently grown prominent in the colffuro of Mayfair. They emphasize tho Victorian quality. Muyfalr ban returned to diadems, tiaras, bandeaux combs and broaches as hair ornaments. A new typo of bandeau Is a bracelet worn about tho head and tied in back with a bit of silk matching tha hair; the counterpart of this bracelet appearing on tho arm. When curls cluster at the back of tho neck, they often are pinned with a large Jeweled brooch. 1'loHh Lingeries. A fascinating danco set of lingerie Is of «ilk crepo in llosh color. The step-in and bandeau arc trimmed with aim-tan lace, in the properly frilly effect, and to emphasize the nlpped-ln waistline tho step-In has about the waist an elastic band. Though women are doing their frantic beat to remove actual tan from necks and backs rovealed by the new evening gowns, lace in sun-tan shades is still in vogue for underwear. Tliut Kxtru Coat. With such a variety of beautiful Colors In frocka, an extra coat which can bo worn with all of them Is advisable an well as economical. Worth of Paris is making a simple black coat lor wear with the bright nnd practical little dretHHCs, and ho Is also turning out top- c.ontH In black and while tweed, which has thu effect of gray, and Is pretty nearly unique In depending upon unusual Btttchery Instead of on fur for its ornamentation. Another of his practical coats is in black and white check with collar and deep cuffs of gray astrakhan. Velvet Hutu. Soft velvet hats which hug the head and are appropriate for many occasions gain dally an Increased popularity. A new Idea is brought forward by one of these in black. Instead of velvet "tabs" framing the face geometrically, this hut has a wide, loosely gathered ruffle of velvet extcnlnjj half wuy on the top of tho crown in black, and curving tlaUci'ingly about each side cf the fuca.
