(Copyright, 1930, by Style Sources.) NEW TORK, June 4.—An Increasing feeling for formality is reported from, smart centers where country club life reflects the . moods and ^^ _. ^ __ _ „ „. „„ tenses of the young matron—and the i f 0 n ow i n g t s the program of business matron not so young. Aside from the i for the conference: strictly plain sports costumes wjiich are a part of the day's play, there Harnish of Altoona; and' treasurer, Mrs. H. P. Faber of Altoona. are types other than the printed crepe 'dress which last season was the general choice. The printed frock Is abundantly worn but there are other soft types, Chiffons, plain as well as printed, pastel tinted crepe laces alone or with chiffon and a score of things including shantungs, georgettes, linens, cottons and even feather-weight woolens. - The comfortable habit of remaining in sports clothes until time to change for dinner has been broken. One now finds luncheon costumes quite as formal in their way, 4s those worn for daylight dining. Such dresses are usually ankle length though rarely uneven. The hats affected with such frocks are naturally of soft-nattering types and may be anything from bonnet to cartwheel proportions. Many of these hats are transparent, hair lace being a great favorite. Meticulous attention is being paid to footwear, the feeling running high that shoes should match either the dress or one of the costume details. A printed tub silk endorses wrapped flared skirt treatment. The curved seaming and button trim of the hip yoke are decidedly slimming details. The supple bodice shows slight all- around blousing. PIiv tucks narrow the shoulders. „ The dainty flared cuffs of the elbow sleeves make the arms appear very slender. Style No. 2561 is youthfully smart and wearable. It is designed in sizes 16, 18 years, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44 and 46, inches bust. Shantung in x dusty-pink shade is very attractive for spectator sports and the beach. Flat crepe silk in light navy blue with vestee and flared cuffs of ecru embroidered batiste is very- chic for town or travel. Chiffon voile print in polka-dots is jaunty. Pattern price 15 cents. Be sure to fill in size of pattern. Illustrated dressmaking lesson furnished with every pattern. Address. FASHION" BUREAU Altoona Mirror 261 Fifth avenue • New York City, N. Y.

(Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, June 4.—A year ago, everybody was cracking a vertebra to gain a boyish silhouette. This summer, Paris says the silhouette is to be statuesque. Not statuesque like Venus, but like a statue with—for instance—a black crepe de chine evening frock with a tiny bolero, and with four deep rows or flounces of heavy, black silk fringe from hip to knee. And perhaps the upper part of the gown does resemble that of Venus, un petit peu London Smells Grand. They are going in for floral scents in London, floral scents being considered more appropriate to the floral season than the somewhat more elegant and langourous perfumes which made the winter what it was. Also, floral scents accord with the 1930 Idea; so, hoop-la for mignonette, violet, lilac, rose, lavender and verbena. So Old They're New. With sleeves that end at the elbow or just above it, half-length gloves are worn. Of kid or fabric, they come not quite to the elbow, leaving a slice of the arm bare. This is a fashion so old that it's new. The belles of 1830 wore very short sleeves, with gloves betwixt and between. In both kid and fabric, you may if you wish, find gloves that match a shade in the summer gown.

Vesuvius was active again today, deafening explosions and frequent eruptions of incandescent cinders frightening the countryside. The fiery d'lsplay w'as visible over a wide radius through the night and luring the early hours today, Profesor Alessandro Malladra, director of he Vesuvian observatory, suggested mmediate construction of breastworks o prevent the flow of lava outside 'Hell Valley." This "valley" is a gorge often in the iath of the' lava stream as It flows o the southeast. The eruptive cone, located in the entral crater, was noted .to be rising as a result of the accumulation of ashes and small outflows. The actlv- ty was regarded as the forerunner of what has become the customary sum-' mer eruption. It was recalled the volcano erupted violently from June 2 to 8, last year, he lava reaching the outer section of he village of Terzigno, damaging fruit orchards and vineyards. ST. OLAP CHOIR WILL OBSERVE ANNIVERSARY One of the most famous cathedrals in the old W9rld is the Trondhjem cathedral at Trondhjem, Norway. The cathedral ,was first b.uilt in the latter part of the eleventh century as a monument to the sainted King Olaf. After hundreds of years of construction, .A. has now beeri completed and is one of the most beautiful and imposing Gothic cathedrals in northern Europe. An altar costing $3,500, a gift from Norse-Americans, Is to be placed in the -vest nave where the congregation usually worships. When the St. Ilaf choir visits the picturesque 1 and historic city of Trondhjem this summer, the members will participate in the 900th anniversary of the establishment of Christianity as the national religion of that country. For it has been that long since King Olaf Haraldsson, fighting to install Christianity as the religion of his people, fell on tho battlefield of Stiklestad. King Olaf lost his life, but his cause triumphed and his death marked the turning point in the history of Norway, from heathenism to Christianity. He had triumphed over the objections of the old Vikings who worshipped Thor, Odin, and other gods famous in Norse mythology. St. Olaf college at Northfield, Minn., at which institution the members of the famous St. Olaf Lutheran choir are all students, is named after King Olaf Haraldsson, later known as Saint Olaf. The choir has been officially invited to participate in the coming national festivities for which elaborate preparations are in progress The choir will take part in the program of rededication of the famous cathedral. Following the visit to Trondhjem, the choir will sing a number of concerts in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France and England, appearing in the capitals of these countries. The choir will sing one of their notable concerts in the Roosevelt Junior High auditorium of this city on Thursday evening, June 19, under the auspices of the Altoona Women's league of Gettysburg college.
