Tuesday an event occurred which will
bring home for the summer a little
group of young people of whom we
are all justly proud. They are the
thirteen graduates of Nebraska's own
state university at Lincoln, who claim
Omaha as their residence. They are
the Nebraska products which offset
the commonplace, although very
necessary, corn fed porkers which are
allied with our reputation as a state.
Those who may ;eer at our absorp
tion, as a state, in the raising of
earthy swine, will, nevertheless, unite
' with us in doing honor of the splendid
young people w ho represent the high
educational standards of Nebraska.

The barrel skirt is one of the pass
ing fashions, nut it is not nueiy to
have a very long life, and will be
easily altered when fashion turns its
back upon it.
Loops of beads are being used as
ornaments on the new, high-crowned
turbans with mushroom brims, the
loops, in two or three graduated
lengths, falling from a cockade set
high at the front of the hat.
In the world of underclothes crepe
de chine reigns supreme. It seems
extravagant at first sight, and not
nearly so useful as the nainsooks,
lawns, etc., which were essential years
ago, but crepe de chine garments are
easily laundered.. -
There are dainty thin frocks of
plain blue or rose muslin, with
straight falling narrow skirts and
simple bodices. One pretty frock of
blue muslin is finished with a picot
edge and ornamented with oval
patches of gray embroidery. This
frock is girdled with bits of blue mus
lin linked together with blue enamel
Soutache bralU is utilized in a thou
sand unexpected ways by the clever
dress designer. Even for tricot it
lends an embellishing touch. This, is
evidenced in the novel way in whton
a top-coat of rose-colored tricot is
decorated with soutache in the form
of wide band on coat and sleeves.
The wide shawl collar, cuffs and belt
There are models in crepe de chine,
silk or velvet, vivid in coloring and in
complete contrast to the wrap or
jacket. It is predicted that they will
be worn with tailored costumes. With
light dresses nothing will be more
modish than a collar of this sort of
silk or chiffon. With rose, green or
white dresses the effect will be partic
ularly charming. ,
A pretty sash to wear with summer
frocks is in two parts, the crushed
frirdle around the waist line, and a
ong triangular shaped sash end that
falls in a cascade drapery to the skirt
hem. The triangular end is faced.with
contrasting color and is -weighed at
the end with a tassel or crocheted
ball, so that the cascade drapery keeps
its place and does not fly about. One
of these sashes, in pale blue, satin
meteor, is lined with pink satin; an
other sash of black charmeuse is lined
The square-necked blouse or bodice
is a pretty- fashion rendered doubly
so in its modern development, for
the sauare is either deen enough to
allow of the whole thine slipping over
he head (cotta-fashioh) or else is
provided with a clipped fastening just
at the neck on the shoulder to per
mit of this easy means of entrance. A
particularly pretty example of the
latest square-necked blouse provides
for the material to be gathered to the
edge by a square yoke, and looks
equally charming in crepe de chine,
muslin. Japanese silk, or any of the
materials now in vogue.
