In the past, a bathing suit had to be Just so, to pass muster. Now, she can wear what her own modesty or Immodesty dictates, as long as she wears a bathrobe when she is on the sidewalk. On the sand it makes little difference. The result is some striking costumes, to say the least, and an absence of hosiery that ought to make a style shop manager go into hysterics over the loss of business.

One pxnlanation of this is vouched for by Jake Miller, manager of El Paso's own White House, The explanation is that the manufacturers of hosiery shut down about a year ago, when there seemed to be rather a good supply of hosiery on the market and buyers were timid about laving In stocks, for fear that the price would drop on them. The manufacturers did not make any hosiery for several months and merely filled orders from stocks on hand, meantime purchasing the supplies for making them. When the stock of manufactured articles was exhausted, the Feature of California Beaches Are the Girls in Beautiful Bathing Suits Who Never Get Them Wet; They Are Called; Ocean Park Disappears Officially; Divided Between Other Municipalities.

They shoulders and said: "We have no The result was a bidding on the part of retailers for hosiery and the resultant rise in price. As a pair of hose can be worn out in one day at the beach, the women were not to blame for protesting at wearing them. As the women vote in California and many of them reside in the beach municipalities, the officials were not to be blamed for relieving the situation by removing the ban from stockingiess bribers. One of the things that strikes the average visitor most forcefully is the bathloss bathers on the who come out in their bathing suits and never get the suits wet.

Some of them have elaborate costumes of filmy material that would be ruined if the salt water ever touched them come out in their filmy creations, all colors of the rainbow, make themselves comfortable lounging places on the beach beneath a big umbrella, seat themselves with their knitting or a magazine, they are surrounded by the young men who frequent the sands, and all spend the day eating, chatting and, some'imes, slumbering The beach habitues, who go into the water and burn their skin brown and red, facetiously call these eirls and their escorts and friends The one piece bathing suit Is considered the proper thing for the women who really go in swimming.

This skin Is a recent gift to Bara, sent by English officers In India.

It measures ten feet six Inches from the nose to the tip of the tail, and Is beautifully striped. The English officer who writes to Miss Bara for himself and his com- rades states that he has admired her productions in India; that her pic- tures have enlivened many a lonely evening for the English residents there and that the officers had resolved to send her the skin of the next tiger slain. This animal, a rnaneater, he stated, had spread terror among the natives of that section. The officers requested that Miss Bara send them autographed photo- I graphs of herself, which the Fox star has done. Some joker suggests that maybe will have a picture made in the tiger skin, since she has appeared so much in bareskin.

The announcement that William Fox had annexed Pearl White as a star is followed by the news that William Russell, stage and screen artist, is to appear in the Victory series, which also features George Walsh und (11a 'ys Rrockwell.

Although Ocean Park Is still on the map as one of the more Important the beaches near Los Angeles, It no longer exists as an official municipality.

The territory has been divided between the townships of Venice and Santa Monica for administration and police purposes, Venice getting the major portion of what was formerly Ocean Park. The division strikes a barbecue lunch stand directly in the middle. The clerk stands in Venice and serves barbecued sandwiches to patrons at the counter in Santa Monica. The out front shows plainly where the dividing line occurs. It Is red on the Santa Monica side and white on the Venice side.

Before Jnly Venice and Snntn Monica made over half of Ocean Park The red sidewalk was on the side. Venice is far and away ahead of any of the other California beaches in the line of amusements and Is constantly adding to its list. All the pier is now taken up with amusement concessions of one sort or another, over a score having been added this year. Ocean Park has added a small, new bath house. It is.

California picture theaters have quit fighting over the relative merits of their pictures and are now squabbling which has the finest organ and the best organist. One of the biggest money makers on the Crescent beach is the little! electric line operating between Venice and Ocean Park piers and between Ocean Park and Santa Monica. The fare is five cents between either destination and the cars are filled all the time. The passengers sit sidewise on the and are crowded on as thick as sardines in a can.

The electric chairs that formerly operated on the beaches have disappeared. It is said people used to rent them and, instead of returning them, would sidetrack them somewhere along the beach and leave them, so that It took all the time of the attendants to hunt them up. They were propelled by electricity and carried two people and rented for a dollar an hour. One of the passengers operated the chair.

He has reversed the order of things entirely. Hundreds of plays and books have been written about Harry News and Freda Leasers, the girl who gave and the man who took. They have been carried further to the point where the girl, betrayed and deserted, has turned upon her betrayer and killed him. but never before, so far as I can remember, has a man shot his sweetheart because she refused to marry him when that marriage was a moral necessity.

LET ME TAKE ITU0WN AKH HAVE IT FIXED? i wm iiiii the head be held proudly, the chin up, the muscles of the neck will also bs held By LINA CAVALIERI. The Most Famous Living Beauty. AND II woman likes to talk about it. She would even like to forget it entirely if she could, but the approach of old age is soon made manifest to her In many ways that cannot be nored or overlooked. And it is in the neck bhat the very first encroachments are observed.

Look at yourself with critical eyes. Is your beginning to look old? Is the skin growing wrinkled and Flabby? Is the skin looking yellow? Is it no longer a source of pride and pleasure to wear a V-shaped or low- cut gown? Well, then, you need not despair, for the ageing neck is not an infallible sign of growing old. It is only one of them. And you have my assurance that you can make it look youthful again. Oh, yes, you can! For proof of this let me point you to the great singing hers and to the great singers who are their pupils.

Almost every one of 1 can think of no a soft, round, white and youthful looking throat. You can have a pretty when you are 70 if you are willing to take a little trouble now. To do this properly you should begin giving the neck special daily attention before you are 30. It were even better if you began when you were 25. First, you must look to its careful feeding.

Give it at least one good meal; a day rubbing cold cream liberally into the front of the neck before retie, ing. Also, you should look very care-j fully to the po: of your head. If the head be held proudly, the chin up. the muscles of the nev will also be held firm. But if you permit the head to droop the neck muscles will share the sagging.

Never lie with the head high. One small pillow is enough for any one. If; you can dispense with the small, flat' pillow and lie wMth the head and feet on a level, so much the better for the neck. The neck thus trained and with the' additional training of deep breathing! should never grow old. If the neck no longer retain its firm aspect, then 11 would advise every woman to take! vo al lessons for herself, even though she have no liking for music, simply for the sake of the beauty of her neck.

The most beautiful necks in the world are those of singers. However, if these preventive measures have been neglected and the neck is gradually losing Its plump roundness. then I would advise you very earnestly to have recourse to that great body There is a special massage for thd neck and it must be Intelligently done. First, strengthen the chin muscles by pressing firmly upon them with he a ks of the hands. Turn the hands with the backs upward and let the finger tips meet beneath the middle of the chin.

Press with all your strength on the muscles of the chin- working backward and upward behind the ears to the hair-line. Second, with the tips of the fingrers quite meeting at the point of the collar bone in front, Hraw the hands with long, slow strokes upward to a point beneath lie ears. This Is a good muscle-building movement. Third, slap the neck smartly with the palms. Fourth, the tendons at the side of the neck that are Inclined to grow more prominent and each year.

This lifting consists In seizing the tendons In a firm grasp and seeming to raise them to meet tha head. This Is painful and may even cause a slight headache at first, but thetfe are only protests against the unaccustomed. Even nature is an old fogy about innovations. Fifth, grasp the large muscles at the back of the neck, connecting with the shoulders, and these also. Raise them as though It were your purpose to place them In the curve of the neck.

This should be followed by a vigorous kneading of the muscles. The aim of these massage movements is to promote circulation In neck. The yellowish, withered looking skin denotes that the blood flows weakly in that part of the body. The flabby muscles indi ate that the muscles have not been well exercised. A developing exercise for the neck is to let the head lie as far back as possible on the shoulders, then roll slowly shoulder to another..
