The Piag Pong Girl
The ping pong craze promises to out
rival the golf fad of previous seasons
In the multitude of things brought out
in the shops which owe their existence
to the fashionable game imported from
Ping pong shirtwaist-sets In silver
consist of a brooch formed of two bats
crossed inside of a horseshoe, and three
pins for the front of the waist made
of two bats crossed.
Ping pong stick-pins have a single
bat mounted on the end of the pin.
The end of a ping pong hatpin is orna
mented with two bats crossed. The de
votee of the ultra-fashionable amuse
ment can proclaim her allegiance by
draping her chapeau with a veil of
white chiffon profusely embroidered In
black with small crossed bats sur
rounded with tiny balls, or the same
design comes embroidered In white on
Among the special neckwear designed
for the "Ping Pong Girl" is the ping
pong cravat This consists of a stock,
shaped to fit the neck, of heavy corded
white pique finished with long ends,
smartly ornamented on the edge with
lows of stitching, which widen gradu
ally and terminate In a fancy pointed
effect: the ends are double, the one on
top being of pique, beneath which Is
another detached of soft fine mull In
contrasting color, this being slightly
larger, so that when the ends are
crossed and fastened with a scarf pin
the effect Is of a border of color ex
tending beyond the white pique.
The same Idea is carried out In the
ping pong cravat, which comes with
ends already tied in a double knot In
front This Is extremely smart In the
now very fashionable black moire or in
barathea silk ornamented- wlth tows
of stitching, and also In butcher's linen.
These cravats are shown In the various
Another ping pong cravat Is of white
cheviot made with a stock three inches
high and tie graduating Into very wide
ends and embroidered with a design of
crossed bats and balls In black-and-white
or in color. The cravat Is usu
ally worn with ends folded over once
and fastened with a pin.
A ping pong stock of fine, striped,
imported madras has ping pong em
blems embroidered in black, pink, blue
and golf green.
A washable ping pong belt with stock
to match comes in a peculiar fancy
open mesh called Kro-mesh. The
edges are bound with narrow lawn. All
colors are represented, but particular
ly pretty are the all-white mesh belts
and those In different combinations of
blue and white pale blue with white
border, white with pale blue border, a
light blue and white plaid mesh with
white border. A white mesh delicately
barred in green with white binding is
smart as are the black-and-white ef
fects. The gay plaids are quite the
thing for golf. The stock to match Is
of lawn-bound mesh, the ends being
brought around from the back and
tying in a small bow in front
Of course there Is a ping pong shirt
waist It is made In various stuffs,
but the smartest models seen thus far
are of pongee and of butcher's linen.
One of pongee Is in the popular Gib
son style except that it opens down the
front and has a cluster of three one
half inch vertical pleats on each side
of the centre band. The stock and
cravat are of pongee, but what gives
the waist its ping pongy touch Is the
design of crossed bats and balls em
broidered in scarlet on the cravat ends
and on the deep turned-back cuffs. The
symbolical designs embroidered In
black and white on a Gibson model of
green butcher's linen convert it into a
ping pong shirtwaist
Shops are showing ping pong suits,
and If you want to be strictly up-to-date
don't say "polka dot" say "ping
