Personal Notes from Gotham
Horse Show Opens the Real Social Season in New York and Functions
Will Be Continuous Until Society Gaes South Debutantes to Rule and
' Hold Sway from Now Until the Holidays Some Beauties Coming Out.
BY MARGARET WATTS Dli PKYSTEtt. 1
NEW YORK, Nov. 1!. (Special to The
Bee.) The horse show practically opens the
real New York season. Before that mo
mantuoua event, society is more or less
scattered, but everybody comes to town
then and nearly everybody stays In town
until the time comes for the southern mi
gration. Hence from now on there will be
busy days for those who are accustomed
to shine in the social world either through
Innate brilliancy or reflected luster.
From now on until the holidays the sea
son practically Is the debutant's' and the
greater number of social events are ar
ranged with a view to her exploitation.
Tho annual ball at Tuxedo club house, was
usual, the first stepping stone of the de
butante's career, serving to Introduce In a
somewhat Informal manner the girls who
will constitute that Interesting faction of
metropolitan society known as "the
younger set." '
Occasionally some of the young women
make their social debut duitng the Hum
men at Newport, while many of them, al
though not officially "out." are allowed to
attend small affairs In the summertime,
but the Tuxedo ball Is generally regarded
ns the first authentic "coming out" fol
lowed Inter by the more formal receptions
und dunces In town and by the first Junior
cotillon, the true social rublcon of tho so
Approximately about the same number of
tl'i.t ore prcinted each year. Just at pres
ent the list "wiiii unusually long, and It Is
far from being complete yet, new entrants
being heard from every day, but by De
cember II will be known definitely just who
may bu counted upon.
Miss Margaret Rutherford. Airs. K. Van
derbill's daughter, was Introduced lute last
season, but went out very little owing to
Mrs. George H. Clements, who. have mude
Paris their home for some time, and Miss
Lois Whitney Martin, daughter of Mr. and
Mr.". Edward S. Martin. '
It Is rumored that evening receptions
may find fuvor this winter as the Ameri
can salon, which Is so often talked about,
but has not ox yet fully materialized.
The American salon as it now exist In
variably consists of a muslcale at which
the artists are all of great price and not
the Ideal fialon where are supposed ton be
gathered the most brilliant men and women
of tho time. One reason may be that there
Is no court to decide upon, which men and
women are reully tho most brillinnt. To
determine that would require the services
of an Investigating committee which, of
course, would have to be Investigated by
still another committee. Ho the clever
hostess of the day realizes that It is wiser
to provldo a superb musical entertain
inent and Invite those whose names always
appear ".among those present" at any en
tertalnment really worth while.
Luncheons and dinner dances are to be
popular forms of entertainment. Indeed
the debtintant luncheon is quite a feature
of every winter. It Is given at one of the
fashionable restaurants of the Colony club
and la for the girls who make their debut
this winter, in fact. It is the only enter
talnment of the sort that really is dls
tinctlve in that girls of other sets are not
Invited. Dinner. and dances cannot be so
exclusive and the girls of two and three
and four seasons are always Included in
the larger entertainments, much to the de
light of the young men who find tho con
stant companionship of debutantes some
what insipid and monotonous.

Mr. and Mis. Henry I-annIng Wurdwell,

1" real home life
S.athtng denunciations of "the selfish
American girl" by certain sociologists have
arout-ed a discussion that Is waging
fiercely. Many of tho disputants maintain
that real domesticity Is growing less and
less; that the old-fashioned American home
is fast disappearing. If not already gone,
and that the American girl Is Its destroyer;
and she, too, is to blame for the fact that
there Is a "servant girl" problem.
If domesticity Is not altogether thing
oAthe past. It Is rapidly waning," says one
eminent sociologist, "and tho American girl,
Instead of being the builder of homes, has
been transformed Into a social butterfly or
mere low-priced adjunct to an Industrial
or commercial machine."
Dr. Ohmann-Dumesnll, a prominent physi
cian of St. Louis, and a profound student
of sociology. In an Interview In the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat concurs In the view
of the sociologist who arraigns the Ameri
can girl as the cause of celibacy.
Real home life has practically vanished,
savs Dr. Ohmann-Dumesnll. "The average
housewife of the middle and higher class
of the present day chooses to Idle a-way
her whole life In the parlor, the woman s
club or In society. The daughter prefers
the store, the office or the factory to the
kitchen, and to devote her God-given ener
gies outside the hours when she is 'earning
wages' to flitting about and the gayety of
the cafe, the theater, auto joy-riding, the
summer garden or the ball room In winter
never giving a single thought to training
herself for the duties of wifehood and
motherhood. Mother and daughter alike
are concerned only with the idea of 'hav
ing a good time.' "
Men Mast Itehel.
The doctor believes It Is because of those
alarming conditions that many men are
crowded out of their legitimate spheres of
usefulness and occupations, and that wages
and salaries of men have not kept pace
with the Increased cost of living. Ho cries
out to the women and girls, liait:
Simultaneously, he suggests to the men to
"Go into the kitchen, you men," says he;
"take up the women's work just as they
have taken up yours. They'll scream
against the invasion. They'll denounce
you; but It s the only way to restore tne
lost American domesticity simllla, slmill-
Speaking on the subject not long ago,
Miss Jane Addams of1 Chicago said:
There Is no doubt that the girls of the
present day are -too eager to shun the
duties of the kitchen and take up work In
the office, store or shop. The fault to a
certain extent lies with the mothers. Jf
the girls were taught that household work
Is not menial labor, but rather the stepping
stone to the highest and noblest usefulness
as It surely is there would be no servant
girl problem, and no charge could be sus
tained that the American girl Is destroying
tho American homo."
Sew Woman Iotm Kase.
The love of women for good times and
an easy life Is the cause of the servant
girl problem," says Dr. Ohmann-Dumesnll.
'So many things seem out of Joint. The
home life Is not Inviting, because of the
wild, mad plunge of the feminine sex Into
man's domain. If man began as determined
an onslaught Into woman's work we would
"Why do girls hate housework? Is It
because they have come to look on It as
drudgery? Why, there Is not the hundredth
pari of the drudgery about It that there Is
In standing all day behind a counter In a
store, pounding a typewriter for nine hours,
or In feeding a machine for ten long hours
at a factory.
"I am Inclined to think that girls dis
like or hate housework because they have
an utterly wrong conception of It. They
do not see the nobility In It or the honor
attached to the service. They do not see
that It Is a creative occupation, giving
opportunity for the exercise of the highest
brain power. Selling ribbon or some other
commodity In a store Is nothing but a
mechanical task. The saleswoman creates
nothing. She has to be polite, no matter
whut the provocation to be otherwise. Over
and over again she must lift the goods out
of their places on the shelves, display them
to prospective customers and wearily lift
them back again. She Is a mere human

Women Should Itianlfy llomf nrV.
"That girl." resumed 1 r. Ohninnn-Du-mesnll,
"strikes the truth. We ate for
getting home life In our rush for dollars
"Lawyers, merchant. manufacturers
and other business men have bought ma
chines. They hire girls and women to
operate them. One girl or one woman and
a machine do a man's work st half the
cost of a man's services.
"According to my view. It Is the house
wife's first duty to dignify housework.
Let her show by example that there Is
honor In knowing how to make a home
and in actually making one. Then there
will bo no servant-girl problem. It may
bo that the American girl will rob the
store, office or factory of many of her
kind, but. If so, she will only be making
places for young men at higher wages, and,
anyway. It Is better to rob the office or
store of youth and beauty than to rob the
home of Its domesticity.
"A givater Inclination to, and love for,
domesticity, real home life and less of the
empty and alluring frivolties of social
gayety, will make a good and eligible
young American citizen less averse to matrimony."
INDIAN WOMEN AS WEAVERS
workmanship and Drulgn In flaskets
and the Coloring: and Decora-'
All too unknown are the beauty and the
art comprised In the basketry of the North
American Indians. Their baskets are be
lieved to be the finest In the world, and
they are the product of the Indian women,
relates the Los Angeles Express.
Indian basketry saw Its prime before the
advent of the white man, since when,
through the Introduction of foreign ele
ments, it has been on a gradual decadence.
Fine specimens are still put out. however.
and the owner of an Indian basket of the
better sort Is the possessor of a treasure.
Basketry antedates pottery, whose mother
It Is said to be. Baskets were used by the
Indian for every conceivable household
purpose. Materials for them wer culled
from the natural products of the land
round about. Hence we have baskets of
birch bark and spruce root ornamented
with gaily colored quills, baskets of sweet
grass and baskets of hazel tongs, redhud. 1
stripped cedar, sea grass, pine root, fern
stalk and willow. One versed in the sub
ject can tell at a glance Just where a
bask.-t came from, the nature of the soil,
color of the rocks and growth of the region.
The woven baskets are considered finer
than those which are sewed. The higher
grades of these are exquisite in workman
ship and design. Nine different weaves are
employed today.. Five more are to be seen
on ancient baskets, but the knowledge of
their making has become extinct. The
Indian woman took as much pride In her
basket as any Penelope of today. She
counted her stitches with most careful
precision and Intertwined her weaving with
marvellous Imagery of color and design.
The symbolism of the shape and orna
mentation of the baskets Is a fascinating
study. StudVnta have spent years In work
ing it. Signs of the zodiac, man, beast
and flower all appear on the various ar
ticles. The coloring also has Its s'gnlflcance
and must be understood before an Indian
basket can be fully appreciated. There
are also ceremonln.1 baskets used by the
Indians in their religious rites. These arc
especially fine and elaborate.
Baskets ornamented with feathers bring
hundreds of dollars on tho market todav.
They are seldom if ever made now, nnd
therefore are rare. In addition to the
feathers these are often garnished with an
embroidery of beads, some of them so beau
tiful as to bo almost like pearls. Shells
also are employed In tho decoration of
The finest Indian baskets are too expen
sive for sny but collectors, but the deslro
for baskets for all purposes that Is now
possessing femininity has aroused general
Interest In this work of the Indian sister
and whenever posslblo her products are
purchased Instead of the modern raffia or
willow, or those made of corn husss, beau
tiful though they may be.

Ir. Ohmann-Dumesnll recounted the
story told him by a professional friend
who thought housework ought to be called
"college work." The professional friend
had a young woman acquaintance, a
stenographer, who gave up office work
for tho Kitchen. Ho met her while she was
rejoicing In her new occupation.
"I'm going to college." she explained,
"in Mrs. U s. kitchen. I'm getting ready

farm must fall upon woman, even when a
