5.0 Mrs. TOWERS SETTLE: Fashions for the Coming Season '
FASHIONS for the coming season !
What a thrill the phrase communicates to rather more than half of the population; for with women the instinct of dress is almost universal, and the woman with a small dress allowance and a clover dress-maker is just as keenly interested in the latest news from Paris as the plutocratic patron of the most celebrated establishments in Hanover Square. This afternoon they will both have a chance to hear the latest and most authentic advices from so well-informed an expert as the editor of Vogue.

This pantomime should have been produced last year-approximately on Boxing Day. We say ' 'approximately' because most Strutham Amateur productions are unavoidably postponed at the eleventh hour. ' Dick Whittington ' was first discussed at a meeting of the Society in May, 1926, and forgotten until July, 1927, when it was definitely decided to stage the entertainment on December 26. An epidemic of absentee-ism enforced yet another postponement, and the date on the tickets has been altered to April 9. Billing this outside broadcast as a ' rehearsal ' is merely playing for safety. Recent reports from Strutham tend to the supposition that the actual production cannot take place before midsummer (1929 ?)

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
