The collection of suits this season s varied enough to give every woman exactly the kind of suit she has been wanting. The important ollections have included types from he classic tailored jacket suit to more versatile three and four piece costumes. Two-toned yarn-dyed worsteds and flecked tweed mixtures play mportant roles as fabric tweeds. There are a great many imported weeds following the decidedly smart and popular vogue for British clothes. Blues and the brown and :an ranges are of foremost importance, while where patterned fabrics are introduced, they are usually a conservative check. Types of Suits. Women who want a lot of suit! for their money should certainly make anyone of the four-piece versions their choice. These suits usually consist of skirt, a blouse or sweater, jacket and topcoat. This costume offers almost endless opportunities to enlarge the wardrobe. Many times the topcoat is full length, but whether it is, or is three-quarter or seven-eighths, it can still be useful as an extra coat to wear with other dresses or skirts. The short jacket may ^combine itself with a contrasting skirt, and thus make one more costume. The three piece suit comes in this same category, consisting of skirt, jacket, and topcoat. Sometimes the skirt and jacket may be of check with the topcoat a harmonizing monotone tweed. The coats may be reefers, balmacaans or swaggers. Another important and very new looking suit is the hip bone length jacket with matching skirt decidedly nipped at the waist, after both Chanel and Schiaparelli. These jackets are usually fastened at the side or center front with just a single clip or button, and the shoulders usually padded a bit to suggest a slightly square shoulder. These suits are seen with and without topcoats. Decidedly of British feeling is the shorter jacket suit of Norfolk inspiration. These belted jackets are distinctive and so new looking, they are sure to be a favorite of many women. Women who lead suburban lives have long been seeking just such a suit. Many of these are shown with a balmaccan type topcoat and the combination is very chic. Dross and Coat. It has been many seasons since this type of suit has been seen and it is sure to have a popular acceptance. The dress is usually one piece with wool skirt and silk top. The coat may be full, or three-quarter length, and is lined with the silk of the dress top. This suit will be a favorite of larger women who feel that wearing a blouse and skirt is not becoming and who still have a yearning for a suit. Many of the suits have gone to Schiaparelli for their inspiration and have emerged with their fullness centered at the front. This silhouette is especially smart in the knee-length jacket for when this length jacket is fitted it has a mature appearance. This feeling is entirely offset when the jacket is belted and has this new unexpected flare.

Sarah Fink Tells Tales to Children Storybook Characters Come Alive for Des Moines Woman. Fairy stories come alive when Sarah Fink of Des Homes tells them using both costume and mask. Mrs. Fink has begun a series of visits to the Mason City schools, telling her. stories under the sponsorship of the Lincoln P. T. A. Wearing colorful costumes and masks which she, herself, designed and made, Mrs. Fink relates the stories of "Robin Hood," "Cinderella," "Treasure Island," "Jack and the Bean Stalk," "Three Pigs and the Wolf" and "Little Black Sambo." When she growls through a pirate's lips that "we want to know where we stand," its like being in the clutches of Captain Kidd himself. The baby pig's squeal is just as realistically interpreted. Mrs. Fink began her work in Des Moines and has given fairy talks and folk lore programs there for the past four years. After her ap- pearence at the state P. T. A. convention in Marshalltown last year, many demands have been made on her for programs in various parts of Iowa. Mrs. Fink gave programs at Monroe, Washington and Harding schools Tuesday morning and at Lincoln school Tuesday afternoon.
