, Society ««rf Fraternal FASHIONS AS SEEN BY FRANCES PAGET ; By FRANCES PAGET. ' (Copyright, 1630, by Stylt Sources.) NEW YORK, June 6.—With Decoration day the curtain Is rung up on the vacation season. Beach togs and sports wear now centre the stage. The time has come to test the prestige of pajamas and the status of shorts—to determine whether the sun shall have Its way with complexions and whether we will bow meekly to the edict that the beach ensemble must include an enormous hat. We had been admonished to wear cottons for the beach, and to don organdies for the summer dance, to wear linen suits and matching pumps and to go gloved wherever we are. We also have been thoroughly drilled In the relative values of black and white versus colors—and advised to brave the ravages of the sun by adopting pastels for sports. We have been informed as to the acceptability of sheer, even transparent fabrics, of the chfc of the paletot or very short evening wrap and the excellence of the jacket costume. The .value of all this drummed Into our defenseless ears for months Is about to be tested now that the summer season is here. All doubt as to the status of prints, Irrespective of their foundation has been laid to rest. The welcome to the short sleeve has been a rousing one—and the decline of the suntan back, excepting for bathing suits has been admitted. The large hat has registered. Belts have been accepted and no one worries any more over the question of skirt length. Things are straightening themselves out, as usual if given sufficient time and we have with us once again The Summer Girl—ruffles, ringlets and beaux.

The decorations for the occasion were most colorful and profuse and consisted of huge baskets of seasonable flowers and evergreens, used in a most artistic manner. The pretty pastel shaded dresses of the little tots taking part made a delightful combination of colors. The balcony was filled with the proud parents and very intimate friends of those taking part, each of whom thoroughly enjoyed each number presented on the varied program. From 2 until 4 o'clock, there was not an idle moment, the first number being a rosebud dance in which the entire group participated, making a picture that will remain with the spectators ft long time, for Its beauty and charming simplicity. Tap dancing, character sketches and solo dance by little Miss Patty Clark, 4-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Clark, were each in turn a source of unlimited amusement and enthusiastic admiration for their audience. The final part of the program given especially for the little tots themselves was also one of delightful charm to the spectators. The very informal party opened with the little folks seated In a circle and each given a most tempting serving of ice cream and delicious cookies. Then balloons were blown to them from a back section of the balcony, as were great strings of serpentines and quantities of confetti, which caused plenty of merriment and joviality to the little tots., As parting favors from their teacher, each little student went away from this very delightful afternoon function cherishing unique forms of lollypops and clever little hats. This afternoon and evening, Miss Kirk Is entertaining the older groups of her classes at Bland park, where they will also enjoy a very delicious picnic supper, bringing to a close a very successful and entertaining season of physical education and expression for a group of nearly 100 boys and girls.
