DISCUSSES , IMPERIAL DEFENCE Recommends That Canada Share Burden With Other Nations of Commonwealth . IMMIGRATION RESOLUTION Complaint That British Settlers Under Heavier Restrictions Than "Preferred Countries" "White's Best!" Winnipeg, June 11. Several Important resolutions were dealt with at last night's session of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire at It 27th annual meeting. - The most important of these resolutions, one concerning the immigration question, was adopted.The resolution urged that in order to encourage assisted British immigration the same restrictions imposed on British immigrants be rigidly enforced on immigrants from the preferred countries of northern Europe; that the Dominion Government remove the restrictions on British immigration under the Empire settlement scheme and allow British settlers to come into Canada on the same terms as those from the preferred countries: and the national executive of the I. O. D. E. was requested to survey the immigration situation ands take what steps appeared to be neces- , sary. . In the discussion on the resolution, it was shown that domestical who came to Canada under the Empire settlement scheme were required to produce reference, etc., while immigrants from JJorway or Sweden coming under the preferred countries' clause, were admitted without restriction. A resolution urging the Government of Canada to consider the necessity for increasing Canada's contribution to Imperial and national defence so that the Dominion could take its place with other nations in the Commonwealth, was adopted. It was decided that the memorial, to the late Mrs. Clark Murray, founder of the order, should take the form of a picture to hang in the archives at Toronto. Torontowas selected today as the meeting place in 1928 of "the 28th annual convention of the order. The invitation, which was made by Mrs. C. E. Burden, municipal regent of the Toronto Chapter, was accepted by unanimous vote. The convention proper was brought to a close this morning with the completion of deferred business, but the attending delegates will be ythe guests of the Manitoba Provincial Chapter this afternoon,-' . , . "The convention has been a remarkable success," Miss R. M. Church, national president, declared. She hoped that the energies of the order would ' be devoted to immigration work as the next great field of endeavor. ,The work for which the war memorial fund Was created would soon be accomplished, she paid, but therewith the opportunities for patriotic work would be by no means exhausted. READING CANADIAN ' MAGAZINES URGED J $ Do you remember a childish rhyme which runs something like this: " Pink's pretty. Blue's blest, Green's hopeful, "White's best!" Tou cannot help but think of it when you see a perfect white costume. Such a one is sketched here. To begin with, the lady who wore It was one of the rare brunettes with startling black hair and creamy white skin, who look well in white. Her costume was entirely white, with the exception of a black hat band that was worn under her white hat-band . and showed just a little. The frock was pure white crepe de: chine and on her shoulder was a big flower in chiffon in the same immaculate white. She wore a long strand of pearls twice around her neck, pearl earrings, a bracelet of crystal links and one lovely emerald ring. She had a bag of white leather and white nacre the pearl-kid that is often used for even ing shoes. This bag is very smart with an all-white costume because It keeps to the color scheme and yet has the 'contrast of dull-surfaced and shiny-surfaced materials; also. It cleans very easily! Her-shoes were white buckskin Oxfords with a high leather heel, trimmed with stitching. Her costume was far more effective and distinctive than any gay combination of colors ;ould have been. Of 'course, a white costume must be immaculately fresh if it is not to look bedraggled, but, when It is perfect, "White's best! (Copyright, 1927, by Vogue.) Lady Kingston is the honorarvyjee- presiaent. PRINCES DANCE RIVALS I.O.D.E. Resolution Savs National Spirit Would Thereby Be Fostered Winnipeg, June 11. An effort will be made by the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire to have the citizens of the Dominion subscribe for Canadian magazines and periodicals rather than those from the United States, following the adoption of a resolution at the 27th annual meeting of the order here last night. i The reading of Canadian magazines 'and periodicals would . aid In developing a strong national spirit in Canada and play an. important part in creating the characters of the young people of the Dominion, the resolution declared. A campaign will be carried on through the leading newspapers of the Dominion, and articles fostering the reading of Canadian books will be prepared by the I.O.D.E. for publication, i 'The resolution urging that cttj-paign be started to suppress objectionable advertising was tabled. No mover was found for a motion protesting against the publication of the memoirs of Arthur Ellis, the hangman, nor was a mover found for a resolution asking that newspapers be asked to cut down' on sensational crime news, and publish Instead patriotic and Empire news. The resolution pointed out that school children were urged to read the newspapers and publication of sensational crjme news had a demoralizing effect. ELECT C.W.L. CONVENERS Work of National Convention Brought to Close Conveners of committees were elected at the final meeting of tho seventh annual convention of the Catholic Women' League of Canada In the Windsor Hotel on Saturday morning as follows: Orgnnlatloo In the west," Mrs. K.

The Duke of York only dances fairly well, and admits it, but he holds the palm so far as the ten nis court is concerned, as none of his brothers has ever been able to fathom hla left-hand deliveries. Prince Henry, the third eon of the King, who has just celebrated his twenty-seventh birthday, is easily the best cricketer of the family. Prince Henry, too, la fond, ot hunting and often rides with the Prince of Wales, but frankly confesses that the heir to the throne Is , much better rider than he. ' . "I fall, or am thrown, nearly as much as Edward, the Ptince said to some of his friends after a recent hunt, "but the public doesn't hear of it." ' TEMPERS LOST AT BRIDGE Women Officially Barred from Clubs in Budapest Budapest, Hungary. Until women can' play bridge without losing their tempers they have to stay out of Budapest card clubs, declares the Minister of the interior In a decree, prompted by a more or less free fr all fight in wnicn trie wire or a state official and an actress pulled hair and exchanged blows over an error In the reckoning of a bridge score. Women, the, minister asserted, are more zealous gamblers than men, and are less able to restrain their fighting Instincts when vexed over a card game. He alms eventually to stamp out alt the clubs In Budapest, an.i there are many hundreds of them, In which gambling Is the main object. Reasonable games with reasonable stakes will not be menaced, he declares, but ruinous gambling will be rigorously prevented. Meanwhile women are deflnl'y prohibited from entering card clubs of any sort. DANCE FESTIVAL DELIGHTS CROWDS Fletcher's Field Ideal Setting for Popular and Clas- , ' sical Dances Various phases of the dance were exhibited by children of the city before thousands of spectators when the summer playground activities were officially opened at Fletcher's Field on Saturday afternoon under the auspices of the Department of Recreation of the city of Montreal. Ideal weather conditions with bright sunshine and a light breeze blowing greeted the occasion and the setting of green trees and blue skies formeu a perfect background for the danc- An improvised platform in the centre of the field near the bandstand furnished an excellent .stage for the exhibition and allowed those on' the far edges of tho crowd to obtain an unobstructed view. Diminutive dancers costumed . in delicate pastel shades contributed to the aesthetic quality of the performance, while older girls gowned in rich Oriental colorings lent a note of vividness and contrast to the programme. ' Throughout the exhibition was illustrative of the high degree of grace and technique 'which had been attained by the young people who participated, and . showed the , careful training that the children had been given by Marjorle D. Llvln-son, of the Rialto Dance Studio. While the programme was consistently good, a few of the numbers seemed more in accord with the our.-of-door setting than others. The dan :e of- the birds, with the musical setting by Tschaikovsky, was one of the finest things in the afternoon's performance, while the costumes with their wide variety of hue were plc-torially perfect. An old French gavotte with its stateiness and charm also made tn effective number, with the tiny gentlemen garbed in black frock coats and the dainty ladies in taffeta gowns. A Chinese fan dance, presented by two of the youngest performers, Carmen Sangswesser, and Lorraine Townsend, was one of the most amusing numbers, while Constance Carln in an imitation of Pav-lowa's Dying Swan, -was charming. Misis' Gabriel Johnston, made a very .saucy Columbine, while Sylvia Gar-ber interpreted a gypsy number with the necessary amount of Insouciance. Miss H. Page was charming in "Tabatiere de Musique" and "Czardas." The prelude, with Us musical setting by Chopin, was an excellent piece of ballet work of the more difficult order and taken both from a technical and aesthetic point of view was undoubtedly the gem of the programme. In their delicate costumes with garlands of flowers forming a head-dress, the perform-rs made an exquisite picture, while their toe dancing was executed in an admirable fashion. Baby Esther, Viola Miller and Sylvia Garber were the stars of tht afternoon. Baby Esther was most effective in a Russian number, while garbed in a tricky black and white costume topped with a silk hat Viola Miller gave an exhibition of the' Black Bottom that had a professional finish. In addition Baby Esther offered a Black Bottom number that endeared her to the flapper members of the audience. As an example of what can be done with only two dancing lessons, a dance was given by twelve children from Lafontaine Park under tha direction of Miss Garber. The number was well received and .considering that only two hours had been spent on tit showed a surprising amount of finish. During the interim between the numbers the banc; of the Royal Montreal Regiment, under the direction of Sergeant-Major T. E. Jackson, gave a pleasing programme of dance music. The official party at the exhibition was made up of: Aid. Poulin, who represented Mayor Martin; Aid. La-londe, Mrs. Lalonde, Aid. Mcrcure, Mrs. Mercure, and Proctor S. Adklns. representing the Campbell Estate, under whose auspices the band played. Dr. J. P. Gadbols, superintendent of public recreation, was in general charge. - "Feminine Note in Dress In most of this season's models Introducing the softened line there Is evident that feminizing Influence which has been prophesied for more than a year, offering gracious relief from the severe silhouette that was for several seasons so generally affected.

For generations the average size of the foot of the North American woman has been 4B. But .the modern girl has oiiU'rown this standard, say figures published by the Women's Home Companion, and the average size at present, is nearly half an Inch longer and a full size wider than that of a orief decade ago. Athletics, dancing and much walking on pavements are advanced as the principal reasons for the increasing size of the feminine foot Predominating Notes A few details are emphasized in the general styie of the summer ensemble, or costume compose, as the French couturiers prefer to call it. One is the lifted line in front, ind another is the emphasis upon fullness In the front of the skirt, which Is stronger than ever, although a few designers are making an effort to reverse this plan with fullness, drapery .and even a bustle effect at the back. GIRL GUIDES HOLD DISTRICT PARADE Attend Trinity Memorial Church Canon Almond Dedicates Colors ' Over two hundred and fifty gl? guides of district 4, under the command of the district commissioner, Mrs. W. H. DT Murray, and the district captain, Miss Helen Laing, attended church parade at Trinity Memorial Church. matins service yester day. Eight companies, one ranger company and three brownie packs were Included in the parade. The pre sence of the guides and tne colors of the companies, placed before the chancel, gave a. setting of celebration to the service which was particularly fitting as the day was the first annl versary of the dedication of Trinity Memorial Church. Canon Almond, who conducted the service, expressed his delight that these two occasions had coincided, and welcomed the guides. "We make too much of sin; we ,.wU,u tamer ui ine ?ooa mat is to be accomplished; we should thrill young, people with love of . home, of Canada, of Empire, and, above all, of God," said Canon Almond in his sermon which was based on the text "Our guide even unto death." The speaker said he believed no other or ganization was doing more to build Canadian foundation of rhn rfar than Va Guide movement, and that through sucn euort tney might , further the meai in Canada "His dominion shall be from sea to sea" T-Ta nnlnteH in the great significance in tho word -guiae, reminding his young hearers that they were being trained now in gullding that they might later be of service in helping others, and that mose wno would be a guide to others must themselves , know and follw Christ, "our guide even unto death." Turning his attention to the parents, the sneaker said he waa am7eH that all were not Interested In the girl guide movement. There would be a different Canadian womanhood if all young girls were brought under its influence. The Jazz fiend, the young person who llstlesly walks the street, are examples of the lack of a "guide," of a directing motive- or Incentive in life. Admitting that the life of service might be one of personal sacrifice the speaker challenged "Who wants religion on cheap and easy terms?" Following the sermon there was a short special ceremony when Canon Almond dedicated tfhA nlnr 49th company. Trinity Memorial Girl uuldes, of which Miss E. A.
