About sixty persons were entertained each time. The score cards were adorned with quaint Dutch fig ures done in water colors by Miss Ger trude Aitken. There were six different styles In these that each person at a table might have one different from the others. Two of the prizes were also Dutch paintings, the others were Dutch figures in burnt leather, holding 1903 calendars on their wrists. A two course luncheon was served after the games. The porch was illumined with Jack-o'-lantfrns. J -V -v TeU Delta Delta celebrated Hal lowe'en by Initiating seven charming new girls into the mysteries and joys of tin sorority.

The freshmen girls of Kappa Kappa Gamma entertained the active mem bers and a few of the alumnae at the home of Miss E!sie Fawell last evening. The house was decorated and lighted entirely with Jack-o'-lanterns having all sorts of curious and ludicrous faces. The girls bobbed for apples, told fortunes and enjoyed all sorts of Hallowe'en games. The costumes were appropriate to the night and were varied in design. Doughnuts, elder, roast marshmallows and nuts, tempted the appetites of the guests. Thirty-five young ladies were pres ent. The students of the Latin depart ment of the state university were guests of Professor and Mrs. G. E. Barber Monday evening at Fraternity hall. Mr. and Mrs. Barber were as sisted by the instructors in the depart ment and" their wives. The hall was decorated with university colors. Col lege songs and a social time were en-Jeyed. Not because it is expected that men nnd especially college men whose brains are busy with weightier mat ters, will read this article, is it used, but because the weaker sex Is inter ested in all matters of dress and that worn by the college man most of all. It Is from the New York Tribune: CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 11. (Spe cial.) A leading Boston tailor was nsked recently: "What styles will Harvard men follow in their clothes this fall?" "Heavens," he said, "don't ask me. I don't set the styles. The boys do that." What the tailor said was true. No fashion plate, however unique or fancy, ever produced the fascimlle of a typi cal college man, and no merchant, whether a tailor, hatter, bootmaker or pipe manufacturer, was ever able to introduce a style here. The collesje men know what they want They fol low no one, and they dress in a manner peculiar to themselves. Their clothe, shoes, pipes, hats, collars and neck ties are made after their own designs, and the submissive manufacturer bows in Bllent resignation to his fate. This year Harvard men will assert their individuality In dress more than ever before. With "pancake"- hat. low "dinky" collar, coat well moulded t'j the form, flapping bloomerlike trous ers and Hat Oxford shoes, the college undergraduate will be In a class By will be the military style, without the flare at the hips, and will not permit its possessor to slump or carry himself awkwardly. He must walk erect and gracefully If he wishes to make a goo I appearance. Despite the efforts of tailors tt change a two years' style, trousers foi; the college men will be cut wide ancj flapping at the hips this fall. Thesa are the easiest to wear. That is what they want them for. This year, as last, college men will show a supreme contempt for the cold Some will buy overcoats, the style of which It is impossible to predict, but the greater part will stride about col lege happy In the warmth which only? perfect health and a good circulation can give a man. It will be the style to' stand on the front platforms of street cars, breaking the December breeze on Harvard bridge; it will.be the styl$ to wear low shoes through slush and snow; it will be the style to stand more erect in walking, and to avoid the hand, slapping, shoulder swinging stride which characterized the swagger man of last year. A few knit woolen stock ings will be worn by the colder mem bers of the fraternity to make up for the lack of leather over the ankles, bul the tougher ones will face the cold In the open work hosiery of the summer and fall. In rainy weather the college man will don his rain coat, which Is long MRS. "MARY LATKY, of Lexington, Neb Mrs. Latky was elected grand chief of honor at the recent convention of the A. O. U. W. Degree of Honor in Nebraska. himself. Outsiders will look upon him as an eccentric freak; mothers will shake their heads sadly as they watch him; the poor chap in ready made clothes will envy him, and he himself will be supremely happy. Every typical man In Harvard today dresses in the manner described above The "pancake" hai is a low, wide brimmed affair, setting on his head like a Illy pad on a mill pond. Gray Ic becoming the popular color, al though many of the hats are black. Narrow bands have replaced the wider ones of last fall, and the brims ar slightly turned up at the outer edge. Below the hat is a pipe. This year It will be a short, straight stemmed pipe, with a ard rubber mouthpiece and pl.iiiV - -iarwood. Sliver will net bi mament and amber will ik in bad taste. The c Vs collar is een "dinkier" eaj- than It was last. A few wing collars will be worn, but the popular article will be the low. comfortable piece of linen which comes together tightly at the front and Just displays the tightly knotted necktie underneath. This necktie will, with lew variations, be of black. That is the tastiest color, and college men are rarely seen wearing anything else. Studied negligence will be avoided In coat and trousers, as well as in every other article of dress. There will be less of a tendency toward "swagger." and more cleancutness and sprlghtll ness In dress. The coat will lose the greater part of Its padding and will be shaped more closely to the form. It and lose and comfortable. Some will wear conspicuous yellow oilskins, to show that they own yachts, and not a few will be clad In policemen's rubber rain coats, to show that they despise appearance and care only for being dry. This year as last, the mustache will be popular at Harvard. This Is par ticularly true of seniors. The hair will be worn short. When the student Is not showing his clothes on the street cars or In the college yard he will be either drinking chocolate, eggs or milk, or a "horse's neck," or he will be en tertaining his friends In his heavy an tique furnished room. The furniture here will be quaint, awkward and old fashioned. The more quaint and bulk ier it is the better he will be satisfied. The following plaint recently pub lished in the New York Tribune will probably be endorsed by many fellow sufferers over the country: "Deli er mev from my friends," ex claimed a reduced gentlewoman who had gone into trade. "I can reconcile my enemies," she continued, "even win golden opinions from strangers, but my friends bid fair to ruin me." It is sad, but true, that friends are generally the worst props that a fash ionable woman, can lean on In misfor tune. They" mean well, but they criti cise sharply, and one would have to be an angel to please them. If they order a gown from a friend who has taken up dressmaking, they first announce that they feel obliged to give the commis sion, and then they cavil over the work. the cut, the finish, the style. This seems hardly fair. If an order to help out a friend is given in kindness the same kindness should prevent criticism which might Injure. "I haven't a single thing I like this season," walled a really kind hearted woman. "So many of my friends have gone into business that I have had to buy my season's outfit from thenv a walking dress from one, a dinner gown from another, a hat from a third, and so on." This was said at a luncheon, and her audience was amused, but her friends would probably have preferred it if she had been less kind about her orders and more circumspect with her tongue. An order for a single table cloth of fine Irish linen and hand woven lace, lately given through a prominent dry goods establishment of New York city, required the best part of a year to fill, and cost nearly $4,000. The lace was fashioned to enwreath partially the position of -each cover and to form a centerpiece. The monogram of the In tended recipient appeared in one por tion of this, and the family Insignia at Intervals throughout the lace. It was designed as a wedding gift. Lace as an embellishment of napkins is not yet numbered among the novelties in table linen, but a large Importer in this line has placed an order for some as an experiment. The N. O. K. club gave a party Sat urday night at the home of Miss Sadie Thompson, 2732 O street, as a farewell to Miss Hattie Brown, who started on Thursday for her new home In Cali fornia. A guessing game, and an exhibition by the men, of their skill in millinery, occupied the time until dinner was an nounced. The dinner was a delicious old fashioned meal and was thoroughly en joyed. The place cards were adorned In water-colors by Miss Kenagy. Following beside the guest of honor, were present: Misses Ada McFall, Nell McFall, Thompson, Brown, Kenagy, Gertrude Kenagy, Ringer, Mary Ring er, Allen, Robinson, and Mrs. Burton Robinson, Miss Ida McFall, Messieurs Richards, De Noon, Bronson, Jones, Folts, Farell, Perslnger, Graves and Bennett. w- a Thlrty-Jlve friends of Mrs. F. L. De Witt were pleasantly entertained by her at a kensinglon Tuesday afternoon. Miss Anna Hass received a bunch of roses as a reward for making more neatly than did the other ladles, a yel low muslin cap with black threa Mrs. Will O'Shea and Misses Ernst, Auld, and Robinson, contributed musical numbers. Mrs. F. Layton and Mrs. A. Haydn Myer assisted In serving a two-course luncheon. & & The marriage of Miss Mae Burr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Burr, and Mr. John Meadows of St Joseph, will be celebrated Wednesday, Decem ber the tenth, at Holy Trinity Episco pal church. A large reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Burr will fol low the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Burr of New York city will arrive a week or two before the wedding and will spend the month of December here. -;- American women first wore and made useful, the shirt waist, after which it was adopted In Europe, and now the short skirt, which has been for several years lndlspensible In this country, has crossed the pond and has been adopted in Paris and other cities. Paris and London set the fashions for dressy oc casions, but America is gaining the leadership In practical styles. Miss Blanche Hargreaves entertained a club of girls and a few young men Informally Wednesday evening. Cards were played and dainty refreshments were served.
