·SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 1 · 1937 WOMAN'S CLUB WILL HEAR NEW YORK DRAMATIC CRITIC M. E. Church to Be Place of Meeting John Mason Brown Will Speak Thursday Afternoon for Club. John Mason' Brown, -dramatic critic of the New York Evening Post, who will lecture at the February general meeting of the Woman's club Thursday afternoon at 2:15 o'clock, in the First Methodist church, has been called one of the best public lecturers in the United ' States by William Lyon Phelps. Mrs. Bertha Patchen will play a prelude ot organ music. Vanity Fair magazine nominated Mr. Brown to its hall of fame in 1935 because "he is the dramatic critic of the New York Evening Post, and for two years, has scored highest among the Broadway appraisers, on a basis, of. the number of hits and Hops'; he predicted correctly; because~he is an aiumnus of the late George Pierce Baker's 47 workshop at Harvard; because he has written several able books on theatrical criticism, 'Letters from Greenroom Ghosts' and because, as staff lecturer for the Institute of Arts and Scientists, Columbia university, he was called by William Lyon Phelps 'one of the best public lecturers in the United States.' " Mr. Brown has published another book, "The Art of Play- going," since his "Letters trom Green Room Ghosts." Earlier books of his are "The Modern Theater in Revolt," "Upstage" and "The American Theater as Seen by its Critics," the latter an anthology of American dramatic criticism.

Heat Waves Envisioned by Stylists Furs and Woolens in Summer Fashion Parade Says Paris. By MARY FENTRESS Jnited Press Staff Correspondent PARIS, (UP)--Fashion experts londay confessed that women this iimmer are doomed to "suffer for le sake of smartness" in heavy woolens and furs. There may even be a few heat rostrations, one couturiere along ne Rue St. Honore said in em- hasizing the radical change in ummer styles. Never before have so many weeds, woolen weaves and furs iecn shown in the summer collec- ions," she said. "Silver fox is the most popular fur for short and ull-Iength capes with the skins placed vertically from high, col- arless neck lines." Sleeveless Jackets. Some o£ the fur jackets are sleeveless, others have elbow ength sleeves. One of the large fashion houses ins gone extreme in producing a coat of sheer, transparent marquisette trimmed with horizontal jands of black fox fur. Tailored suits lor street wear are shown everywhere, in black woolen weaves and bright tweeds. Coral turquoise is the most popular of the new shades. For afternoon wear the woolens and tweeds will be trimmed with [ace, or starched white pique. Startling Effects. Startling effects have been obtained with these trimmings. Several of the modistes will show bands of sheer, black lace inserted in pale pink mousseline and frills of white lace on black crepe. The tailored evening suit has disappeared, to be replaced by a, formal gown with low cut, draped bodice'that can be worn with a short, fitted jacket with tailored lines. Both afternoon and evening gowns will be heavily embroidered in bright'colors, with silk, beads, sequins and pearls. "Vest pocket" hats will appear this summer. Looking like a pawnbroker's skull cap -and worn on the back ot the head, they can be crammed into a tiny purse. CENTRAL LUTHER. LEAGUE MEETS Central Luther league held its home vespers Sunday evening, at. the home of Arline Martin, 8 Ninth street northeast. Discussion was led by Miss Martin on the apostle, Paul. Hymns were sung and the Luther league benediction given. Later refreshments were served and the time spent informally. Occasional Chairs There is an endless variety in the occasional chairs shown at the various furniture markets. Wingbacks and barrel-backs are important, and small chairs arc bright-red, green or unusual blues. F u r n i t u r e colors for 1937 No color or combination will stand out p a r t i c u l a r l y in f u r n i t u r e during the year a c c o r d i n g to showings nt the f u r n i t u r e markets. Gray and blue is a favorite combination, however, and experts tell us t h a t furniture colors often follow the hues of ladies' dresses. In that case, dubonnet, royal blues, navy with white accents, brown, chartreuse combined with American beauty or purple, and some in other shades of red will prevail. Called to Iowa City.
