TIIE.HKE: OMAHA, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1915
By MELLIFICIA. Wednesday, December 8, 1915.
AT last Omaha has caught the ice skating; fever, and rather late In
the Infection, some are thinking. There is a very credited rumor
afloat that the old base ball diamond at the Field club will be
converted Into a rink.
With the windows of Omaha shops displaying such attractive skating
costumes in such fetching caprices of modes, it Is a great wonder that
some hidden influence has held back the skating impulse this long. It
has been raging In that hub of all modes and fancies, New York, long
enough, the while world knows. It has struck Chicago and struck a tell
ing blow. The last Sunday's papers were filled with it, it had invaded
the restaurants; and, where the light hearted formerly danced between the
courses of luncheons and dinners, not to speak of suppers, they re now go
ing to skate, or dance on skates. ,
The Ice Tango and Jack Frost Hesitation are the steps of the moment,
every one is learning them; but, above all, everybody is dressing for them.
At the first Chicago indoor gambol on Ice, a marked feature of the
frolic was the number of women who wore ice-dancing frocks that were
fashioned for the ballroom; silks, laces, nets. In a few more days, the
change had come the women danced, looking the part .
If there Is one thing under the sun that can make a woman more
adorably fascinating than another, It certainly must be known to that
specialist in such refinements, Mr. Florenc Ziegfeld of the Follies.
Fonr years ago it Is now since the skating girls of the Follies set New
York and the world that goes to New York Into a state of abject be
wilderment of admiration, and the girls were dressed .n far more clothing
costumes than tin ballroom demanded.
