RAIL DAD IS FINED FOR TRANSFER OF SOIL Removal of the Menlo Park laboratory building, where Thomas A. Ekll- BOH mad.o the ilrst electric light, to Dearborn, Mich., to become a part of Henry Ford's collection ot historic relics has resulted in the imposition of fines aggregating $1,400 againrt the Pennsylvania Railroad by ord*-r of Federal Judge Joh'n Bpyd Avis. T;he railroad was charged with tho transportation of noil infested with Insect larvae from New Jersey to Michigan contrary to quarantine regulations. Counsel for the railroad admitted the charges und stated that the company was ready to pay a $100 penalty on each of 14 counts of the indictment Acting under instructions from Mr. Ford, the rairoad attorney told the court, the laboratory and surrounding ground were transferred, about three I carloads of the top s«il being re-1 moved. The railroad, failed to treat,! tho soil to rid it of the larvae of the' Japanese and AslaUc beetle. An agent of the United States Department ol.' Agriculture stated that j thousands of the larvae of both spe- { cies of beetle were found in the soil, i which, If left unmolested, would have filled Michigan, with the pests that u*i a scourge in New Jersey. Dame Fa Smile By Grace Jewe\ shion s t Austin Look like sports In the morning, look like a party In the afternoon, look like a million In the evening--seema to bu, when boiled down, the agree- in em of many fash- Ion dictators. TMs does not mean qt all that sultn will not be entirely proper afternoon wear In theso spring days, but there IB a softer, woolier, more Oraca J. Aurtin. at PMe ^3 com. fort look to the morning suit, and the blouse has more simplicity. Dame Fashion baa noted with pleasure that many of the sports or business suits still are shown with the over-blouse, rather than the tuck-In, for there Is no question about It that the over-blouse attends to its own business, and does not need the care and attention to keep It ID Its place which is needed by the'tuck-In. Some have moorned that the prospects for tht use of summer felt hats are not so good as In serernl recent years, But why mourn? Summer time Is straw time, after all. Nevertheless, the summer felt hnts hnv« proved their worth so fully to womankind that It is doubtful If they are ever really banished. Gloves are wonderfully beautiful Jnst now. Just as soon as a re-emphasis Is given to any type of wearing apparel It seems to put such hope and zest into manufacturers that tn«lr products bloom like well-nourished roses. And that Isn't a far-fetched figure, for surely you know that the beautiful rose is about the hungriest of flowers and the heartiest eater of any of the blossoms. The l i t t l e silk worm will h*ve to be Industrious throughout this entire summer. Silk suits, silk gowns in floral patterns, silk sweaters and silk Jersey dresses will abound on ?very nlde. One curious print pattern h;is been noted with many ltttl« elephants In Its design, as a change from so many flowers. Berets promise to be ns pood ns ever for hat wear. Like tlie little girt with the curl, when they are good for one's style, they are apt to be vtry, very good; giving to the fnoe Just thnt air of the jaunty, rendy-for-n-KOod-tftne disposition which Is «ttractive. If a melancholy person should put on a beret, one of two thln?a would happen. Rlrtier she would nt once unto- raatlcnlly cense to be. melancholy-or, Involuntarily, the -'lash of mood would make her pull off the beret with hnste. One garment that each woman fond of sports will be qulti' Ilkoly to Include In her wardrobe for spring end summer will he n leath.-r blousejacket of suede or some shiny leather. Dame Fashion has never lost the memory of the exceedingly "chic" appearance of n group of women she onre observed in Michigan, apparently OH their way j to hunt. No ermine munlles could j have been more becoming than their leather jackets. Aud speaking of travels reminds Dnme Fashion that several friends, with tours and cruises in mind, have said that two kinds of costume only need to be provided; tlie sports typt; for day, and evening wear. The typical "afternoon dress" has not much place on a cruise. (©. 1930 Western Newspaper Union.) Matin Frock Has Longer Skirt, Normal Waistline The Matin frock feature* the longnr skirt, molded hips, normal waistline and soft lingerie of the new mode.

Floral Patterns for Print Frocks Sport* Dresses in Knitted Fabrics; Few Changes in Evening Clothes. Printed dresses seem to stress the floral patterns in small, slightly con- v«ntionalir.ed types for Informol wear, in large realistic designs on flnt crepe or chiffon for tbe afternoon. In dresses of this type, notes a fashion correspondent in the .New York World, there la a tendency to use much fine knife plaiting on the lower half of the skirt for added fullness, although a few variations of the wrap-arousd skirt are shown. Homespun and worsteds are among tbe homely fabrics which are used for tha seven-eighths length coats that accompany many spring ensembles. Ihese hare a great number of cape effects. A few surprising coate show sleeves of three-quarter length and are worn with dresses whose sleev are an inch or two longer and provide n sort of dressmaker cuff effect. Tbe majority of dresses, however, have sleeves of tbe puff type that do not extend as low as the elbow. Among tbe most Important of the individual models is a group of three sports drcflses designed by tbe indefatigable Patoa. These are all shown in russet and gray knitted fubrics. The most amnsing of tbe trio uses a fairly light Jersey doubled, so that it Is really two identical dresses stitched together. The skin is particularly interesting--a single Inverted plait Is placed at the center of the back and a very low circular (tare runs all the way across ' the front, A second dress of this group ta a two-piece affair with gray and russet stripes running diagonally across the front, vertically dowia the buck. 4 A square gllet of white silk pique has several tailored bows of the same material, and the sleeve* are enlivened with corresponding iiqoare inseta ef tbe pique just above the wrist. Lucile Paray has designed an ensemble of mustard colored faille, a Charming Printed Frock Ha» Gold Dalale* on Black Crepe Ground. fabric, by the way, which promises to win, show or place In the spring collections. The one-piece dress has a peplum, many criss-cross tucklngs and short gleevea. The white collar Is set on askew, closing at the left Hide, and the matching tout, of seven^elghth length, Is completely nnllned. Vlonnet has used an entrancing printed crope of black-eyed suennn on a black ground for one of her frocks of a cut so complicated as to confuse Mr. Einstein. The skirt has a wraparound, apron effect In the front, one side of which continues up under tho matching belt to form an nppliqued revere that slants across the bodice. The draped collar is a one-sided arrangement. Tbe evening things are very few and do not show these revolutionary changes which we, in our Jaded generation, have come to expect Boa- lunger has contributed a dress of green faille which Is one of those satisfactory things that may be hauled out and sent to the cleaners every month for the next three years. It is of the shepherdess type with huge side panniers that are plaited to the bold ice, looped over twice, and continued to the back to form a very straight, very narrow divided train, one side of which Is perceptibly shorter than the other. The skirt in front la a matter of green chiffon petals that ends some six inches abov» the floor, and lets every one see whether or not your legs come ,up to snuff. Lnnvln lias designed a very theatrical black gown made entirely of large, round sequins that sparkle wickedly. Tt plots the curves of tho figure with an embarrassing accuracy and descends to form two tiers, ench edged with a good eight Inches of stiff black tulle which has been Joined to form a complete circle and to float behind In tbe manner of 'a broad hoop. · Gray Formality A very formal Paris gown is of exquisite pcurl gray chiffon, with Empire 'nit nod the finely plaited skirt floor length all around.
