The graceful mannequins who wear these beautiful creations are r-er- upon whenever the need arises. Lady Eaton then went on to say-that in order to accomplish all the tasks that fell to her lot in . her j onerous though indefinable position -in the firm, it was necessary for her to plan her work carefully and then tn adhere religiously to her schedule . . , -The trouble with schedules, though.'' she continued, in a soft, unhurried voice, "is that they begin to run you instead of your running them, if you are not careful. And that is why I have just broken away and come on this trip." Lady Eaton smiled, a smile that began in her tiuiet blue eyes., "This is the first time I have ever motored all the way-lure. And I enjoyed the drive immensely. It was lovely!" IS FOXD OF SPORTS. aided by pages with trumpets, and a ..... , fn intomatlnnnl Not all Lady Eaton's time is devoted to work, however. She is an ticcomplished sportswoman, a fact that is borne out by her slim, erect figure and graceful carriage. When interviewed, she was wearing a dress of beige and silver material cut on sports lines and trimmed with one large painted green flower, a beige veloun hat banded with brown, beige stockings and brown strapped shoes. I am equally fond of riding, swimming, golf and tennis." Lady Eaton declared. "There is one drawback in beina interested in so many sports, however, and that is that they all require different clothes. When T travel and I move about a lot-it complicates matters by piling up the luggage' curtains slowly part, the first pair of mannequins appears at the head of the stairs and are followed by ethers wearing further versions of the new elegance which the mode in furs has taken unto itself this year. As the mannequins descend, they slowly unfold than- coats to reveal linings of exquisite beauty in keeping with the rich loveliness of the furs. All the latest creations designed by this house show that unmistakable beauty of line which gives elegance to the wearer, enhancing the rich colorings of the furs. Hudson seal with its glossy black sheen is shown combined with seftly pouched or graceful shawl collars and cuffs of some luxurious contrasting fur in rich browns and lighter tones. Blonde broadtail trimmed with fox in a matching shade is a novel effect of very smart and youthful appearance. Another magnificent coat is made entirely of grey squirrel, with softly pouched collar, and the pelts worked in delicate striped effects. Racoon in a number of different patternings makes another lovely group of coats, while a model of leopard, trimmed with fitch, cannot fail to be coveted by every feminine member of the audienoe.' Persian lamb proves to have firmly established Itself as a feature of the youthful mode in coats in several ! models trimmed with delicately When asked if she had any hobby marked brown furs. among the arts. Lady Eaton an- i One of the first models to appear swered that though she enjoyed other people's work, she herself had, unfortunately, not been gifted with the talent to perform. At this point.-; however, she was interrupted by a friend who was present at the time, "Oh! What about your music? Why Lady Eaton sings and plays charmingly!" Lady Eaton then confessed modestly that she found her greatest relaxation in music. "I practice an .hour every day," she said, "even uring the summer, when my family is at home." It would, of course, be impossible for Lady Eaton to know all the company's employees, but, through the heads of the departments, she keeps in touch with their progress find problems. She is especially interested In the girls and women who work in the stores. Last summer Lady Eaton entertained them at a garden party. SPORTS ADD GRACE TO WOMAN'S FIGURE Reverse Effect on Men Lamented by Paris Sartorial Experts is it gorgeous creation of Hudson seal lavishly trimmed with white fox, tails and all, on thes long shawl collar and on the cuffs. An equally striking model comes on the stage towards the end of the revue, made of ermine trimmed with white fox. fehawl collars vie with the pouched mushroom effects and sometimes the fur continues down the front and into a border. Each group of coats seems more lovely than the rest, and every one is entirely individual in style and treatment. All imaginable artistry has gone to achieve the beautiful effect of each model exhibited, making the winter mode unsurpassed in any former season by its elegance. The appearance of the various groups of beautiful models is .interspersed by dances and songs. Baby Esther takes a prominent part in the revue, with her singing and irrestible dance steps, while Al Edwards contributes a catchy song especially written for the occasion. Tiie Campbell Twins, with Germaine Daigneault and Marguerite Bray make up an entertaining foursome in their "bellhop" dance and their white costumed ballet. Friendship through the Churches, at the annual meeting of which, on November 10, 11 and 12. in Pittsburgh, she will be one of the principal speakers. During her three weeks' j stay in Canada she will deliver a, number of addresses on: "The Christian social movement in Eny- land;" "The Copec. movement, and i how it began;" "The Copec reports, how 'they were made and what they signify;" "Our Christianity, A Gesture or a Jest?" "Social Service in England, methods of training and co-operation;" "The Christian in a non-Christian society;" and. "Vocation." The Copec reports deal with: "The nature of God and His purpose for the world, and the social function of the Church: The home and sex relations: Leisure and education: Property and industry: Politics anil citizenship." It is not the wish of Miss Gardner to teach Canadians or Americans at this time, the main objective of her visit being to help her hearers to understand better their responsibilities in the world. It is one of her principles that, taking the case of poverty, the public should seek and i destroy the roots from" which such conditions arise and .not to attempt the amelioration of blights on the human fabric. In procedure Miss Gardner, in company with others holding her theories, approaches the public through the churches, being convinced that it is not enough for people to attend church and there offer praise and thanksgiving for all their bountiful blessings. Speaking of the Copec movement in England, Miss Gardner said that it had already created an enormous Impact on the churches. Under the chairmanship of the Lord Bishop ot Manchester, a conference was held by Copec at Birmingham in the spring of 1924, over 1,500 delegates attending. Miss Lucy Gardner leaves Mont real on Thursday for Winnipeg and is to visit relatives in Saskatchewan afterwards. She will be in Toronto about October IS, just before going to the United States. Special Cable to the New York Times and .Montreal Gazette. Paris, September 25. The coutur iers and tailors of Paris are greatly at odds over the influence of sports on styles. While the leading fashion establishments for women concur In expressing the belief that sports have greatly facilitated their work by permitting women to develop on more graceful lines the sartorial dictators of the men announce that it is almost impossible to dress an athletic man correctly. "When monsieur rushes around hitting little balls with sticks or with his toes, like the crazy English, he grows ugly bunches of muscle and nwings his arms, destroying the impeccable lines in which we cut his costumes," said one master tailor, wringing his hands in despair. "I far prefer to dress short fat men than the sporting type." To which a famous dressmaker countered: "In the past it was sometimes terrible, oh, so terrible, to make ma-dame's gowns hang properly because of little rollB of fat here and shallow spots there. So many used to waddle instead of walk. Now all is changed. Madame's form is approaching perfection since she walks, rides, drives, golfs and swims. Her poise improves, her movements become more natural, so we are able to do wonders with delicate stuffs her rebellious mould to drape."
