STYLES TO REFLECT CHINESE INFLUENCE Striking Hue* and Polychrome Effect* Studied. Parts spring clothes may show a | Chinese Influence, reports from the fashion world Indicate. Stylists credit the predicted Ori ental trend to the Inspiration of the International eihlMtlo® of Chinese art in T^imlon, which several de signers have seen and more Intend to visit Mandarin hats of black straw or lacquered printed satin, and gold Chinese bracelets fastening with a long pin, have already made their appea-once, while new spring fab rics, now being shown designers, reflect an Oriental Influence. Some prints are patterned with tiny pa godas or fishes and others with de signs which recall Oriental porce lains and vases—tiny flowers with in larger flowers linked In n smoothly running pattern. The striking lines and polychrome effects of Chinese porcelains, paint ings and tapestries are being studied for possible color Inspiration for spring clothes. One shoe designer is working on boudoir bootees of turquoise or peach blossom pink satin embroid ered In small flowers, which are cut to mount well over the ankle in a manner recalling the Chinese boot. SWEETHEART GOWN By CHER1E NICHOLAS Tills winsome two-piece dress Is so called because It has heart-shaped buttons and pockets. Perhaps the thought of St Valentine Inspired It. Anyhow, worn on February 14 It would make quite a “hit” or on any other day, for that matter, for there Is no denying this clever frock Is exceedingly attractive. It Is made of pure silk crepe In a lovely rich coral tone entered on the new color card as sunset. The side pleated skirt stitched to the hlp llne Is smartly featured in incom ing fash Iona Note the four cun ning heart-shaped pockets and the unique heart-shaped button fasten ing. The hat la of the new apun tex felt The dress Is equally as attractive In white or any of the pastel shades. Its short sleeves are noteworthy since advance new* give* emphasis to the coming Im portance of aleovea that are of above-elbow length. SURPRISES HER _ Mi*. John Adama gave a sur prise party on his wife, Mrs. Ida Adams, on Saturday. An enjoy able time is reported. Among those present were members of the "20 Wonder Club" and a host of frienda Mrs. Carrie Hale, of Sioux City, Iowa, arrived in the city February 16. Mrs. Hale, who is ill, will make her home with her mother, Mrs. Sarah Taylor, 2721 Caldwell, until her health im proves. Mrs. Inila Wales, 2212 North 21st sir deft, is confined to her bed. C. A. Sheldon, 2f>20 Grant street, Sa confined to his bed with infiuema. BRAID TRIMMED Sr otaaui MKHOCAS Watch for brald-trlmmed dresses, suits and ensembles. They are coming along thick and fast In the advance spring collections. Flat braids, any and every sort of braid ing will give a new aspect to the new fashions. Soutache, of course, will he In the lend, for It lends It self so aptly to versatile treatment. In the picture the smart ensemble shown Is of white silk gahc.dlne. Gabardine, by the way. Is a word to keep In inlnd, for It Is going to fenture In headlines the season through, not only silk gabardine, hut wool gabardine for the swanky little tailored suits which promise to he the rage this spring. The blouse worn wtih this white gabar dine Is of navy blue silk Jersey. White soutache trims yoke aud belt In vermicelli patterning. Tho coat Is decidedly new In cut, espe cially the sleeves. Clever New Tricks Used to Get Color Contrasts. When It comes to feathers yowig women seem to like the tiny, curled glided ostrich tip. The folding for real flowers has also brought in all sorts of tiny or larger flower deco rations made of fabric, ranging from a tiny circle of pink rosebuds to enormous coronets and tiaras of satin or velvet. Color contrast Is not new, but It Is done In different ways this mid season. Some of them are the pocket sections in bright color on Schiaparelli's white resort suits 1 the red woolen scarfs, tied around the waistline of Paray's black frocks; Malnbocher’s light blue scarf going abound one shoulder and tied under the arm of a dark blue evening gown; Plguet's color pipings on a black dress; llaggy ltouff's vivid velvet collars and plas trons on dark dresses; and Lan vin's multicolor bands around the tops of dark dresses, both sleeves and bodices. Those working with lacc are combining the s.-iim* lico In two different colors tills season, as black skirt and royal blue cor sages bald together by a scarf com bintag both. i t ki Tibet's High Mountains Feature of Strange Land Tibet, most mywtsrlou* of coun tries of central Asia, la a land •blefly of ups and downs, notes a writer In the Chicago Tribune. High mountain ranges there are cut by narrow valleys, the whole of the country being so rugged and rocky that It Is capable ef supporting a population of barely three mlllloa souls. A tlsable proportion of these are lumas, or priests who dwell within lamaseries that ding peril ously to the steqp slopes of the awe inspiring mountains. On the occasional lofty plateau In this strange land the people carry on a precarious form of agricul ture and tend their small drovea of yaks, great, shaggy oren that are found In the country also In a wild state. The religion ef Tibet Is a for* of Buddhism known as Lantabuu. It Includes a widespread belief In re incarnation. The head of the church, who likewise is the bead of the state, bears the title of Dulal lama. Second lo authority In the country and the church Is the Tashi lams, to whom are attributed great spir itual powers. Since the Jesuit fathers Orueber and IVOrvlUe visited Tibet In 1081 few Europeans or other aliens have bee* permitted to cross Its borders te visit the sacred cities of Lhasa aad Shigatae.

Irish Celtic in Origin The Irish people, while a mixture of race, are lurgely Celtic in origin, descended from the Celts, part of Ihe great Aryan race which swept ov.er Europe many centuries before the Christian eca. They are not Semitic In origin. There are va rious traditions nnd poetic failles to account for the early Inin,. Hants of Ireland, before the Col Me Inva sion.

Oliver Cromwell a* Dictator There la Hltle disputing the fact that Oliver Cromwell, during his office ns Lord Protector of England, exercised dictatorial powers, al though Id his pronouncements he Invariably associated himself with the parliament and acted lu co operation with the parliament when that body was sitting. In its aiw sence he alone decided matters of state, but persisted until Ms death In accepting only the title of Lord Protector, having refused the otter of crown made by the parliament. Indians Traced to Yellow Race The original re) nmn, the Amer ican Indian, came from pure yellow stock and did not carry any black strain from admixtures with na tives of Oceania, reports Dr. Ales Hrdllcka, curator of anthropology of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington. He brands as ••fabu lous” the theories thnf natives of the Oceanic Islands left tlicir Im print on the American continent. These Islands were occupied by the Melanesian peonies only as recent ly as the Hut millennium before Christ, at which time the New world had been populated for sev eral thousand years from Mongo lian stock, ski.tut have been foetid In the Amorims which seem to In dicate Melanesian origin, hut these always p*ove to fall within the va riations known te occur among the Indians, declare* Doctor Hrdllcka. \ > • . * *% . k V \ V •*. A D VICE ' By Mias Trobbl Watters B. P. and C- M—You will receive your private replies next week. Dear Miss Watters—My husband opens my letters without my per mission. What shall I do to stop him? He says that it is alright for me to open his- I am not in terested in reading other people’s letters and I don’t want anybody reading mine—J. S. C. Answer—Ha is probably inter e-ted in reading your mail because your actions causes him to be lieve that you are carrying on im proper correspondence. The best way to stop him would be to permit him to read all of the le‘ters until he has convinced himself that he is wrong in ever suspecting that you would try to put something over on hint- There is no rea son for secrecy between husband and wife, although it is practiced in many instances. Dear Mb* Watters—I did a fa vor for a man three nsontha ago because of nothing more than sym pathy. hhrer since ho has hounded me to death with proposals of love and marriage- Now this man could never be anything to me but just a friend and I have told him so But he keeps on being a p-vtt ’That, shall I do to convince Lira?—P.

Slight Error Found in Fahrenheit Thermometer Fahrenheit, who made the first mercury - glass thermometer, arbi trarily assumed that the amount ot expansion of mercury was exactly proportional to the increase o< temperature. The error of thia as sumption was learned when It was found that the rates of expansion of different liquids were not strict ly proportional to each other and therefore not proportional to the temperature. Thermodynamical calculations have shown, writes Dr. Thomns M. Beck, In the Chicago Tribune, that temperature la exactly proportional to the pressure of an Ideal gas (that Is, a gas whose molecules possess neither weight m>r vol ume). Unfortunately, an Ideal gas exists only as a theoretical concept. Ilowever, certain gasea, particu larly hydrogen and helium, ap proach the ideal In behavior and, by application of small corrections, cun be made o give the same re sults as an Ideal gr.s. Consequent ly the eor.-eeted hydrogen thermom eter Is the standard od which all thermometers are based and la used for the most precise tempera m-e measurements. The hydrogen thermometer fa rather cumbersome, so for every day pu^tottes the mercury ther mometer la nsed. Obviously it can not be wsad below the freezing point of mercury (—40 degree*). ff.»r such temperatures thermome ter* fill-id with alcohol or pentane (a luw-mlMng gosobne) are used. For tea;;* rMirr.-s above the bolls ng point of mercury (about TOO de g'-ex*) another liquid metal, gal Horn, has found application, and »b%»ve the softer»ng t.mpor*tu~e of glass (about 1,3)0 degrees) the therwetnotsr tube ta nude cf quarts.

Origin of Olympics It !s vt .-.v popular to apply the w< rj O'yiijil.' to any groat ceiebra t:'n of spoil. The word is de rived from the rami1 of tho plain, Olympia, where an.denL (tree,: gani-g, vver» Kid. In thoje pagan days i i? an*’l its; credited toe gods vbh being human, and according ly did MI they couid to please them. One of the Ideas of their gsnits pnil entertainments was to enter .aIn t!ir. ilehlcs who d welt on Mount. Oly nnnts. The most fa nioni of the guinea were those spe cially arranged for that, purpose, and they were named Olympic. A period of four years elapsed be tween the games. That period was called the Olympiad, nnd frrni the year 77tt It. i\ was used to measure time. Tire Olympic games thus de noted a very special exhibition, and that Is why the word applies to the greater festivals of sport.— Montreal Herald. Short Siiirti Forecast by Survey of Studio Style# Short skirts for American wom en—at least, shorter skirts—are on the way, a survey of Hollywood dis closed. For American women, following the styles set by the screen stars, are sure to adopt the mode soon | to be brought to the screen by Fran cis Langford in "Collegiate" and | other uctrcssos, including Carole Lombard, Marlene Dietrich, Norma Shearer, Claudette Colbert and Joan Crawford, according to Travis Uanton, Paramount stylist. "The new skirts will fall about three Inches below the knee for an average of 11 Inches from the tli or," Fauton explained. "Some skirts may be 12 Inches from the floor, but before a woman adopts that length she should have a pretty good idea of what her legs look like to other people." Bactrian Camel, Central Asia’s Beast of Borden Quite s lot of people think that n etiL.el with two httinps is not a camel at all but a “dromedary." This Is not so. The two-bamped animal, which for many centuries has been the mainstay of Oentrsl Aslan transport, is the Bactrian camel, states a writer In the Mon treal Herald. It Is shorter Is the leg and has stouter and harder feet than Its re lations in warmer ellmes. and Its thick hair enables ft te withstand the bitter winds and My cold of winter In Central Aida. The drsmedary M a name gives to the swift riding eased ef Ara bia ami North Africa to distinguish It from the ordinary park carrying camels so familiar So ns In pic tures of caravans.
