Another mystery ship. The German submarine mothership Vulcan, which, when Germany turned over her fleet to the Allies under the terms of the armistice, strangely disappeared, and nothing has been heard of her since. Did she meet the same fate as our unfor£unate collier Cyclops? Note the heavy cranes amidship for raising the submarine out of the water for repairs.
S. O. S. for a designer of women’s clothes, to introduce a simplified American style of dress in Japan, was received here to day by the American Young Women’s Christian Association from Miss Michi Kawai. general secretary for the Japanese national Y. W. C. A. Entry of 850,000 Japanese women into industrial and professional life has resulted in a revolt from the tyranny of centuries-old costumes.
Miss Kawai explained that school teachers and wives of small merchants, who must have fifty or more dresses which must be ripped apart and laundered once a year, no longer have time for such tedious tasks. Japanese girls attending college in this country have been urged to bring home their American clothes to aid in setting the new style.
