What to Wear and. How to Wear it [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921

Wkat to Wear and Ho# to Wear tt The sports coat is sii?l in favour, - A new type has made its appear ance, and will probably become a general favourite. It is cut on easy lines, with Magyar sleeves, wide col lar and revers, turn-back cuffs, and large pockets cut in .one with the front panel. The length varies ac cording to individual taste, but the smartest models reach only as far as the hip line. The most popu lar material is coloured olanicet cloth. The fastenings are two large buttons and feathered holes. This season's tailor-made coats have back-pockets witr small welts as extra trimming, reminiscent of men's hip-pockets. On ? smartly-cut, loosely -fitting sac this is an extreme ly happy idea, and one which will probably be copied a good deal as the late' autumn styles advance. One thing should be borne in mind, how ever, and that is these back pockets are very unsafe for actual use; only those in front should be used as re ceptacles for valuables. It has been decreed by the le...

The World's Dandy "hangouts" [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921

On World's Dandy 21 'fiaiflouir __«v_ There have recently been numer oos complaints about the terrible stuffiness of the gambling rooms at both Nice and Monte Carlo. When ever these places. have been visited in past vears some guests have been stifled and have become iU after an hour or two, and how those who stay in them for a whole afternoon and evening, and occasionally for a good- part of the morning as well, can stand it, cannot be imagined. It is sometimes hot and sunny on the Riviera (though not often), but even on the most superb days it has never been known that a window was opened. It was once tried to open one, when an attendant rushed and nearly slung the offender out, threa tening immediate arrest and all sorts of dire penalties. There can be only two reasons why the Casino authorities should thus hermetically seal the places which are such a peculiarly remu nerative source of income. One is that in a vitiated atmosphere the gambler loses all sense of restraint and thro...

Clergymen Act A Mortality Play Names Kept Secret by Special Desire. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 1 May 1921

Clergymen m n ntortalitv Piav Names Kept Secret by Special Desire. Is the temperament of the priest akin to that of the actor? It seem ed so recently at the Church Hall, Westminster., where several London clergymen distinguished themselves in the old morality^ play 'Every- man,' produced on behalf of the Ab bey Restoration Fund. v. The identity of those taking part in the play was not revealed. 'We desire specially that our names should not be given,' a Lon don clergyman, vivid in paint, pow der, and bright mediaeval dress, said to a London Press representative before the piay began. However, the identity of some of these actor-clergymen was known to their parishioners, and there was a considerable number of devoted Church people who had come to see how the Rev. ? So-and-So would acquit himself as Death, or Every man, or Good Deeds, or Fellowship. In a few instances the curious, ap pealing words were given with the intonation of morning prayer; some of the clergy could not dt&am...

ft Cosy Corner. The average man and woman is a comfort lover. Both have a de cided dislike to Jack Frost anl Jupi ter Pluvius. After a taste of cold or wet weather, how nice it is to come home to a brightly burning fire. With what a sigh of relief one settles down in a chair to warm or dry their tootsies. And there is great satisfaction also in getting to the bottom of a glass of hot Scotch or special ale. Even the feminine equivalent tea is none the worse for a little stick in it. Then a good meal and an adjourn ment to a well-warmed drawing room, there to supply' or listen to good music and singing. If your tastes run to reading, the paper and a smoke, with the news of the day to interest you in the sitting room. Do ycur_ prefer your own comrany? If so then your reading or wJting can be don' by a nice fire in your own well-appointed room.
