THE AtTOOtfA MIRROR-FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 8, **> SOCIETY SHELVED, AS HORSES PARADE First Time In Forty-four Years of New York Show Fans See Horses Instead of Viewing Style Display. »>• in.v.vK OKTTV, Stuff Correspondent. NEW YORK, Nov. 8.--"Thfi show," Insists Bob Clari>, who lins aeon nil forty-four of the.Mo ;innnnl national exhibitions, "nln't what it. usnd to be." But limn, neither is the horse. This fnct remains tliaf: HIP forty- fourth annual national show IH under way In Madison Square garden today after a send-off as colorful and enthusiastic—(and br-tti.T attended In- ,<!ldentall.v)—as any in the history of the event. Society, In ermine, xeril and \veber and heiibroners, turned out in record numbers. .Five army teams lent un international fillip to' the alTirir. The United States got away to a. .splendidly earned victory in the opening Jumping competition. California entries began a, concerted raid upon the blue ribbon counter such as cast consternation among the eastern exhibitors two years HK<>. Altogether, this horse show started out like quite a show. .The old timer's complaint Is thai Madison Square garden -the new uptown variety of a venerable .showplace—has no promenade. "The show ain't what it used to be," Air. Claro maintains. "In the old days, they had the promenade, and these society people could walk around and seo each other and dfiy: 'Hello, there.' and give thn rest oC us it look at them and their Jewels. "Now they have'to go in and Hit in their boxes and look at thu horses. H'H all different.' While the annual natlonul horse show unquestionably tins served In the past, the purpose suggested by Mr. Clare, its appeal in this automotive ago Is extraordinary. 'I'lint thero should be a record opening night attendance of nearly 10,000 In the garden Is Indicative of something. First honors went to the United .Status, as was only lilting and proper after the splendid record made by our Army team in Berlin, Paris and Dublin this year. In tho' event for pairs of inlernn- •tlonal officer's jumpers, feature event of tho opening night, Proctor mid Gcorgo Williams, tho nges among the American horses entered, easily won the biuo ribbons. Ridden by Captains Bradford . and. WiUltin.-t, they swept over the obstacles on the figure eight course with pnly a single fiuUt. Another United States team tooli second place, with tho Jrlsh ii-eu state onIranta third. Ben Meyers of Beverly Kills carried off two "blues" In thn harness pony class, to thu disappointment ol eastern exhibitors, recalling a slmilai . success scored by California entries in 11)27. FASHIONS AS SEEN BY FRANCES PAGET By VnANCES PACiKT. (Copyright, 1029, by Style Sources.) NEW YORK, Nov. 8.—It won't be long now before that Christmas 'list must be prepared. Not such a task either, for there, ore ever so many things to wear which arc fashionable and foolish a.s well as sensible and sane. For instance it has been quite a few years since one could conscientiously add neckwear to one's list, unless by neckwear one implied a, scnrf. Thero are still myriads of good looking scarfs, but there Is also neckwear of quite another sort, dnlnty Idc.y things with and without match- Ing cuffs. One extreme Is the lace bertha, which Is again at homo on a velvet gown. A belt Is another revised gift poa- sil.lllty calculated to please no matter where tho wearer decides is its proper resting place. Hells range all the way from suedes and reptile skins, (o metals and wooden bead novelties made to match up with bracelets, or what not. They are either wide or narrow, usually the former, but in some ultra smart cases afc much us four inches In width. There are also buckles for either belt or slipper. It Is rather fun to know that one may give or take a muff—of course you have noticed that they are in again. The tiny barrel shaped muffs are being carried for evening also which brings to mind that evening gloves ar« morn than acceptable as a gift since they are essential to the modern costume. To cap the climax of these In revived gift possibilities there are headdresses anil "theatre caps."
