same in real life as they are in
filmland,' says Mrs. Askew

few short boat trips. Mrs. Askew
is very enthusiastic over the cli
mate and beauties of that state, but

This Outfit Would Make
Any Girl Pretty
J... - -
By A. K.
Fashion Camera Photo.
What girl would not look pretty in this outfit? Could anything be
daintier or more summery? The blouse is of oyster white linen, though
it could be made of any color linen, rough or smooth weave, that would
suit the wearer, It is trimmed with white' bands of cluny lace. The
umbrella, which really looks mischievous, if not flirtatious, is of white
taffeta and ostrich feathers. The hat? Oh, yes. There is a hat, isn't
there? Well, it is of Pekin blue, the feather being about all you see unless
you look closely. s
