More Attention Being Paid Small ^
Boy Styles; Well Dressed Child Not Denounced By ‘Corner Gang’
NEW YORK, May 7.—Styles for vest-pocket citizens command a great deal of attention these days. Tfhe freckle-faced urchin who had r<>ne suit of "every day" corduroys and another for Sunday wear Is of a family himself and he has now, in all probability, the father himself and he has been succeeded by a race of ^miniature dandies who are giving quite serious attention to their appeal. If the Juveniles are not especially interested themselves their parents are, and the result is pretty much the same- The well-dressed boy today is neither denounced by the "corner gang" nor bombed with mud balls. He has become something of an accepted institution and while his sandlot associates may at times disapprove on the grounds that matters are being carried a bit too far, the tribulations of Little Lord Fauntleroy are no longer the common fate of the well dressed lad.
New York approves the 3-button Norfolk suit with knickers for small boys this spring. The larger boys, of high school age, are wearing pretty much the same type of suit that the college men feature, which means the 3-button single-breasted sack with straight-hanging long trousers. While it is admittedly the case that in the -west and the south stores are selling the small chaps knicker suits they have not taken to the Norfolk, although It is expected in such quarters that the demand will increase for this style of suit for smaller boys.
Fundamentally, the small boy is a hero worshipper. His admiration is confined to firemen and policemen and possibly aviators and steeple-jacks the greater part of the time but scarcely any of these spry individuals supply the necessary style inspiration. Baseball players of national standing invariably occupy pedestals In the small boy’s estimation. For that reason there are thousands of Bab© Ruths swarming about the vacant lots of the U. S. A wearing outfits that are named after famous athletes. When cinema favorites like Jackie Coogan have been selected to set the styles for the small fry there has been great difficulty keeping them from growing qut of their prestige. No small boy can long be a hero to small boys if nature takes its course. Which Is one reason the silver screen has supplied very few permanent fashion plates, although the older men take many of their dress leads from both etage and screen.
Boys* Long Trousers.
This summer unless all signs fail, the beaches will be peppered with small figures wearing bathing suits
that feature the term "Life Guard" across the bosom. This is a gesture in behalf of the robust individuals who haul swimmers out of the sea. The bathing suits for email boys this summer are of practically th© same style of tailoring aa those for older men. Of course the adults are deprived of the exquisite delight of glorifying life-savers but the small boy’s outfit is decidedly mannish in general lines.
On© of the things that stylists hear little about today is the long trouser suit for very small boys. Mothers spiked this proposition on the theory that sons grow up fast enough and, furthermore, young-appearing mothers did not car© to hasten any process that would make them seem old themselves. For that reason New York women this season have clung rather persistently to the 3-button Norfolk, which is a compromise between the offspring’s desire to be a man before he is a boy and still features somewhat masculine and adult lines. Knickers are popular with small boys because their fathers wear them and the taint is thereby removed.
PLANS MADE FOR MARKLE FOUNDATION
By Universal Service.
NEW YORK. May 7.— Entering for the first time into a detailed outline of how the John and Mary R. Markle Foundation is to devote its funds to the advancement of humankind. John Markle, philanthropist. and retired coal operator, today told of the scope of its program.
Medical research centres, hospitals, charitable institutions and educational agencies are to be created and maintained. Study of disease and development of methods of its eradication will be flsanced.
Libraries will be supported.
Destitute individuals deserving assistance will be helped. Markle said that he intends the program of the new organization eventually shall reach proportions surpassing even the scope of the Rockfel-ler and Carnegie foundations.
Though an early fund of 18,-000,000 is contemplated as a first enterprise, he said that in the immediate future there will be no new ventures, except a continuance of charities he and Mrs. Markle already are engaged in.
