By KHANClCS TAGKT. (Copyright,, 1930. by Stylo Sources.) NEW YORK, May 27.—To tan or not to tan is the burning question of the day. Whether it is bettor to aid and abet tho process by wearing cutaway backs—no sleeves and otherwise exposing one's body to the medicinal but often uncomfortable caresses of a too ardent sun, Is one of the problems confronting women. Now that the suntan neckline in tennis dresses is not the rule but the exception, it shows intermittent signs of regaining high style Importance. The interesting phase of its endorsement for summer Is Its occasional appearance in exclusive collections! its practical omission from the ranks of the moderate and low priced groups, in which it was such a dominating factor last summer. Far from establishing Itself in distinctive style groups as a feature of importance, it is nevertheless, accepted as something which still has appeal for the woman with many and varied tennis frocks and a preference for sunburn. With the exaggerated sunback no "longer exerting a daring appeal, the moderate and adjustable .versions are the principal exponents of the low back. One sees a return to that type of dress which with a Hack that buttons or ties up may be opened to give adequate exposure. And its endorsement is founded on the suppositions that not only is It effective but It provides the woman who has tried tanning and finds it particularly becoming a way of getting hers without being conspicuous. The extent to which the suntan back in Jjathlng suits has been exploited goes to indicate that the sun vogue has not entirely passed. In the swimming suits the suntan neckline is no longer a highlight yet on the other hand it has not shown such strong evidence of making its exit as it did in the tennis fashions. The market abounds with interesting adjustable backs for those who go in for compromise. OFFICERS ELECTED BY LUTHERAN MINISTERIUM Hon. Charles M 1 .
