1**% ?<-* . .". Church, Society «na Fraternal AS SEEN BY FRANCES PAGET t By f-RANCRS FACET. " * (Copyright, 1930. by Style Sources.) NEW YORK, May 29.—Women are ktwrwii to be extremists. Having >* adopted pajamas and to a lesser extent shorts, one now la confronted With the "two pants suit" idea. Among the newest apd most startling "bf the season developments Is the 'exploitation of daytime frocks in printed and plain fabrics, which, by th« simple removal of their wrap" around skirts, are transformed into active sports costumes, comprising shirt and shorts. When made of dark ground prints in flat crepe and crepe de chine, these little dresses suggest their suitability for city wenr and are offered as "week-end frocks" in sports departments. Tennis costumes are seen In many guises, with linen and shantung of foremost importance. Some pique appears usually combined with another thinner cotton. The tuck-in blouses are often made with low-cut sun- backs and another idea is the grouping of two blouses with one pair of shorts, 'one of the blouses cut low In back, , while the other is made with a high \ collar. When developed in printed percales and muslins, little suits comprising shirt, Jacket and shorts are extremely ' modest in price and because of this ' appeal they should prove strong features during the vacation season. Many of the beach and sports costumes" shown include matching hats. With beach pajamas, a crownless brim of wide proportions is shown of matching material, and with swagger little . 'muslin suits, there is a muslin beret -«, in contrasting color. Other berets are of knitted fabrics and there are fabric scarfs that can be tied kerchief fashion around the head. i Flannel appears In shorts, long .pajamas and in separate coats.
