I read with great interest a story recently, written by Mack, in which he explained his reasons for letting Lapp and Plank go to bat. Be ieve me. Mack was up against it when that situation came up. I did not realize it then so much as I do now. I was doing a lot of hguring myself at that time. I was also more or less up against it. In my opinion.

The Call's Magazine ad Fiction Page The Coiffure of Refinement ADMIRATION of the latest styles in coiffures is largely tinged with rejoicing that the day I of the grotesque haystack bunch of jute is passed, and that the simple, graceful coiirure is coming back to its own. Beginning with left to right, a very effective j and simple style of hair dressing is shown by Miss Ann Swinburne as Seraphina in the title role of "The Madcap Duchess.*' The effect is that of a Psyche knot with the added gracefulness achieved by a braid worn over the forehead, with the side hair brought low over the ears. The style adopted by Miss Margaret Andrews is iv direct contrast, with the effect almost as simple. The hair is bunched at the crown with I the effect of a soft drooping pompadour in front.
