A fashion show ARRANGED FOR YOU WE MUST be in fashion today. Fashion reaches even into our thoughts and speech, into our every activity, into almost every incidental of our present-day background. Though elusive and constantly changing, we must .be familiar with this force--if we are to hold our places as active members of a modern community. To speak of young girls as flappers is to date ourselves as immediately post-war. Plush and mohairs would stamp the past on our home furnishings. And antiquated household appliances would continue to submerge us in drudgery distinctly unfashionable. There is no better parade of fashion than that which is presented to you daily in the pages of this newspaper. Through the advertisements, leading merchants and manufacturers are telling you about fashions in living. Hats and shoes now being worn, the better kind of household conveniences, the best values in foods, decorations, furnishings--each advertisement contains sincere and truthful news of the latest offerings of the stores. With the advertisements you can keep abreast of the times. You will find that it pays you to read them every day.
