This picture was snapped while she was watching the events in a recent horse show at Oakbrook. tsrw cessful parties in its history Saturday evening. Nasturtium yellow Invitations, that look more like dodgers, were in yesterday's mail bidding the members to come as they please" for cocktails, dining, and dancing. The idea is that they will appear In costumes tliat are, perhaps, the expression of long suppressed desires. Pirates and cowboys, gigolos and waiters, cabaret dancers and prima donnas all of them are expected.

But for the- sake of those who hesi tate to depart enough from conven tionality to rig themselves in some disguise, Albert J. Pardridge, the party promoter, explains that white linen or a black tie will be acceptable. The Chicago Golf club hasn't had such a party for at least four years. so its no wonder that the members are rallying to the idea with enthusi asm. There will be prizes for the costumes that show the most origi nality, also for those judged the most amusing.

sir. and Mrs. Pardridge will enter tain one of the largest groups. Amon, their guests will be Mrs. Robert R.

McCormick, the John Jay Bryants, and Mr. and Paul Walker. Scott Linn has reserved an especially large table for his guests, most of whom will come out from town. The Horace Wetmores and the George F. Henne berrys will be still other hosts and hostesses.

Party for Young People at Onwentsia. Lake Forest's young set, a number of them to be debutantes this autumn, will claim a major share of the attention at the supper-dance the Onwentsia is having Saturday evening. The invitations have explained that the party is for the young people but that the grownups may come if they desire. One of the largest groups will be that to which Miss Gwendolyn Bowen will be hostess. Miss Bowen is entertaining at dinner at home and then the Onwentsia party for Miss Peggy Clow and Miss Clarice Hamill, both of whom are to make their- debuts this fall.

Mr. and Mrs. Walter S. Carr, the Ross Byrons and Mrs. Byron's parents, the John W.

O'Learys; Mr. and Mrs. David J. Molloy, Mr. and Mrs.

Cushman Bissell, and Mr. and Mrs. Ferre Watkins are a few of those who will entertain Saturday evening at the southern party at the Knoll- wood club. Mr. and Mrs.

James R. Bremner, both senior and junior," will have one of the largest tables beside the swimming pool, and the Percy Wilsons Patricia, will be hostess at another. Mrs. Wilson and her daughter have just returned from at holiday at Northport, Mich. The party at Knollwood is the first pool party at the club this season.

Tables will be arranged on the ter races surrounding the handsome nata- torium. There will be a swimming and diving exhibition, and then a mid night supper will be served in the clubhouse. The first big party at the North Shore Golf club this season, to be held Saturday evening, will mark the dedication of the club's new swimming pool. This club also boasts some fine new tennis courts, and the members have access to the stables of the North Shore Polo, Riding, and Hunt club. The Herbert J.

Lorbers will entertain one of the large parties Saturday eve ning, and the Charles Ellises and Continued on page 17, column 1. We discovered some very unusual white flannel berets in a young girls department, but the head sizes are the usual for average tops. These white berets are dotted in colors, such as scarlet, bright blue, and navy. The dots are dime size and are embroidered cn the flannel like small bumps. As tops for smart sports clothes they can't-be equaled.

There white linen nightgowns, made long and fitted, with just the minimum of color accent at the necklines, on the tip end of the tit sashes and perhaps a bit of embroidery that looks like a complicated monogram or set of. initials. Coral rose, and a peacock blue are the best color contrasts used as accent for these lovely sheer white linen numbers. Another white hope for a summer sports wardrobe is a new two piece knitted outfit, the skirt slim and straight, the slip-over top scanty as to very short sleeves and a high straight across neckline. The sleeves and the clever way they are inset to the sweater itself make these knits far more expensive looking-than they really are in fact the rather startling price mark will make you look twice.

Incurable bargain hunters are having a grand time with all the clearance sales around the town. What you will find are reductions in white gloves, that are well worth buying for future needs. Also white felt hats, and some of the best buys of the season in backless white sports dresses. Slim, expertly tailored white suits of linen crash, palm beach, and. other summertime materials, all of which can play a return engagement next summer.

in the hushed, elegant atmosphere of her own bedrooms. Claudette has all the gifts that make an ideal film actress. First of all, she has intelligence which shows in her eyes. Because she feels and understands every situation of her script she acts with subtlety. She can djj more with a twist ot her moutn or a droop of her eyes than some of the baby faces can with dramatic dynamite.

She is photographic, too. The modeling of her face is unusual. Her enormous brown eyes are wile set, her face is quite broad at the tomples, but her chin is almost pointed. Cameramen like its planes. Claudette has done an excellent job of making the most of her own type.

She has discarded her own eyebrow line; she chooses instead a penciled line in a high arched effect that swing southward rather than downward at the outer corners. Her hairdress is one of her pet concerns. The hairdresser may trim and wave the sides and back of her hair but no hands save her own cut or arrange her bangs. She thinks the arrangement of her bangs is what gives individuality to her coiffure and she achieves personal effort. Health is the real beauty secret, she thinks.

She admits frankly and wisely that her greatest prof essional asset is her animation and you can't keep that quality if you're under par. So she works at being healthy. Because she has a tendency to go under the weight mark if she isn't careful, she supplements her daily meals with three glasses of plain or malted milk and every night before dinner has a luxurious massage to erase the wear on nerves and muscles of a day before the camera. She doesn't fuss much with her skin outside of scrubbing it furiously, after cleansing with cream, to remove the heavy makeup she must necessarily wear all day. When it gets out of whack for one reason or another she gives it corrective treatment, but she doesn't have any set skin program r.side from cleanliness.

Lots of hard work, some good, wholesome and using the old bean about taking care of your health will keep you young and beautiful, says Claudette. Just one look at her and you'll be sold on the idea that it's a good formula. Eleanor Nangle. at FIGHT you over again. There's no disputing one thing she is utterly, fascinatingly unique.

The picture is an adaptation of the successful play in which Misa Bergntr also appeared. The play was evolved from the books of Margaret Kennedy, who is responsible for that collection of queer, fictional geniuses, the Sanger family. In "Escape Me Never" the diminu five star portrays Gemma, a waif, and a mother without benefit of clergy, who is victimized and remains loyal to a musician who has genius, looks, egotism, magnetism and nothing much to commend him so far as character goes. Still, the fellow loves her after his fashion, and, though he's been bad to her as bad can be. Gemma cries.

between tears and laughter born of tears, when he promises to reform: don't tcant a good man There are women like that. Jcnotc Gemma bursts tempestuously Into she picture. She breaks away from a schoolgirl party being thrown through the staterooms of a Venetian palace occupied by Sir Ivor and Lady McLean. She explains her presence but with an elfishly humorous appreciation of her predicament and the effect her word3 have on her flabbergasted listeners. She is unmarried.

She has a baby. She is hungry. Hunger is her reason for attaching herself to sightseeing parties because after sightseeing trips there is always tea somewhere. And Gemma, In the confusion of settling down at tables, is usually able to seize a morsel here and there. She lives with her friend vho had taken her and her baby son off the streets and befriended them.

Who is the friend? Jlis name is Sanger. He is ihc son of the great composer -who is dead. My friend, too, is a composer Whereupon the McLeans gasp and flounder like fishes and order Gemma out. FOR at that very moment isn't their own and only daughter out with Sanger in whom she has displayed a remarkable interest What neither the McLeans nor Gemma know is that old Sanger had two sons The story transports the observer to the Dolemite Alps whither go the McLeans to see what can be done about repairing Fenella's broken heart, and where they are followed by the brothers Sanger and Gemma, with her baby in her arms object of the trek being to put Mamma and Papa md Fenella right as to Gemma's destructive, though innocent, statement But nobody foresees that Sebastian ond will fall for one another. See the picture for further developments.

It's a charming film alternating laughs icith heart prods. It's alive situations that are unusual and interesting. Direction, photography arid staging are splendid. Dialog's in-teUigcnt and smartly seasoned. Miss Bergner is fascinating.

There's discerning thought behind everything she does and says, and yet, there isn't a moment when she doesn't seem completely spontaneous. Hugh Sinclair, handsome, poised, electric, was the perfect choice for Sebastian. I We'll be seeing you in Hollywood, Hughic! Other roles are handled with nice discrimination.
