It offers the same crisp tailored inea that are apparent in cloth or inen, with the added advantage of ;oolness, and a wide range of colors, ncludlng bright tones as well as pale inte. Combinations of colors are also mportant in developing organdie suits, since the crisp little tuck-in with short or no sleeves is-a favorite in costumes of this type and may introduce a con- .rasting pastel. The suit is an outstanding example of the extensive variations which may be developed in one style type. Sponsored by suit houses, sportswear flrms and in a whole-hearted fashion by dress creators, both crisply tailored and soft versions of tbe dressmaker ;ype are strongly .accented. *' Since the silk suit has been generally approved, it naturally follows that nany varied fabrics have been drafted for service. Revealing to what lengths the insistence on the suit by designers has gone, one has only to view the mediums sponsored, with particular interest, of course, manifested in the sheer silks, printed and plain, fofr summer wear. • Brttia CHURCH NEWS Services at the Altoona Rescue Mission at 808'/j Ninth street will be held this evening at 7.45 o'clock with' the speaker being L. 3H.
