stripe, and the other a blue gray
mixture. A sable choker completed
the former costume and a gayly
printed scarf ths latter. The hats
were Milan cloches.
Coats seen on the avenue also

"What Is It?"
—Six Girls Who Want to Know.
There la really a sharp dividing line
between real love and that what often
passes muster as love. Any devotion
that Includes selfishness, Jealousy, re
sentment, bitterness, fear or cruelty
la not love—but desire. True lov#

eringly, demand. Ho when two people

Intent on the happiness of the other

To be jealous Is not to have com

Inclined to demand what is due rath

Bitterness and cruelty are expres
sions of hate Instead of lov*. And
fear is another expression of doubt.

uGood News About Man”
The story of the Garden of Eden, a crude and
primitive interpretation, is still a determining in
fluence in much of the world’s thinking about the
nature of man.
The Puritan idea that human nature is essen
tially evil, and the theological idea that man is an
alien from God, remain in the minds of millions.
To a world that has long fostered dark and de
k grading thoughts about the nature of man, Chns
« tian Liberalism brings glorious tidings concerning
st our humanity/
W These tidings Rev. Ralph E. Bailey will present
in the sermon, “Good News About Man, to be
given at the First Unitarian unurcn, on* name, onccv,
