Club to Elect at Meet April20 Union Twp., Apr. 11—Mesdames Lillian Jones and Angle Stouteh- berg, Burt, will entertain the Mothers & Daughters club April 20, when the annual election of officers will be held. Program: response to roll call, favorite flowers; talk on rock gardens, Marie Grover, Burt; paper, perennial gardens, Mrs. Winifred Jergenson. Mesdames Mary Bennett and Mar- —and pose on top of them' a snip f a hat, worn well over your eyes fyhigh in back, and flower trim- 1 or garden trimmed for fussy ear, but simply ribbon banded, ith a silly round brim, for sports. The next thing to indicate your Gibson Girl" inclinations is the breadth of your shoulders—so by day you wear puffed and pleated sleeves, and wide lapels which ex- agerate your nipped in waistline— and by night you will beruffle your frocks, arid let them hang'down to your ankles, witii fullness repeated by more ruffles . or graceful flares. Even yo'ur undies have become more frilly and dainty, and your nighties, too, recall the daintiness of bygone days. Now—down to the very tips of your toes, where rounded shoes make your feet look infinitely smaller and carry out the Gibson Girl silhouette 'to a final point of perfection.
