Our Solution of the Hat Question. BY F. O N. From a recent editorial in. one of our Salt Lake dailies we see that it has "been proposed and carried that women should henceforth dispense with the time-honored custom of wearing hats in church. It appears that the subject sub-ject has been agitated for some time; and although the convent girl has not been called upon for an expression of opinion, her views might not prove altogether unworthy of consideration. The editor of the above mentioned paragraph par-agraph facetiously .condoles- with the woman of fashion who will now be forced to sacrifice an elegant' hat to th whim of such a prefer a view of the pulpit and its occupant, . and, in view of the fact that Easter without my lady's bonnet would scarcely be the same, he urges that a single exception ex-ception to the law be granted in favor of that Sunday. Then when one turns to another column and reads an elaborate elab-orate description of the new styles chapeaux that are to surpass everything every-thing in the millinery line since the gorgeous reign of Louis le Grand; "creations" foreign in name at? well as finish, with colors rivaling those of the rainbow, and sporting the choicest choic-est beauties of the floral kingdom it does seem like a ruthless encroachment on woman's rights. It therefore, not without some lingering feeling of sympathy that we stand apart, yet without giving pur voice wholly to the innovation. As Catholics, we have no desire to disregard dis-regard the injunction of St. Paul, whose words are too clear and positive to admit of ambiguous interpretation. But at the same time we claim a grievance against the hats, and one somewhat weightier than that already advanced; for it is not su much the preacher we wish to see, but rather the Altar and Sacrifice, for which chiefly . we go to church. It is, indeed, in-deed, no slight disappointment and annoyance an-noyance to those desiring to assist at Masts as devoutly as possible, to have the view entirely obstructed by a hat of the cartwheel variety. We dare say that had the Apostle of the Gentiles Gen-tiles foreseen these vast expansions of headgear, he would have added restrictions re-strictions for these later timee.' Can w e fancy' the women of Corinth arraying array-ing themselves thus? " Were it not likelier that the mode which wo would advocate 'as a "Satisfactory" solution of the problem would be more in accordance accord-ance with their classic taste? I Why not. eay-wo, adopt in the world j the fashion that has so long prevailed in convent schools,, and which doubtless doubt-less comes down from the earliev and simpler-times? To" those unfamiliar with the effect it might seem plain or odd, but ' in reality there is a certain modest charm and grace about it that grows upon one- with the custom. Among the pictures of memory which the convent girl. will in the after. years take delight in recalling, there will scarcely be any sweeter or more beautiful beau-tiful than those slowly moving processions pro-cessions of her white-veiled companions compan-ions approaching .. the Holy Table. Could the same impression be made; if hats were substituted for the veils? Even with the smaller black veil or Spanish mantilla, worn by all the pupils pu-pils at the ordinary services, the effect ef-fect is very pleasing. Not infrequently is the eye attracted and held by !a w insome face, the beauty of -which is strikingly enhanced by the filmy lace that falls gracefully about the brow and shoulders. . . What advantage would be enjoyed if such a style were to, be generally followed? It is clear that much vain show and petty rivalry would be abolished, abol-ished, great extravagance would, . be avoided, simplicity, with its sister virtue, vir-tue, would be revived, a multitude of distractions prevented, and, finally, there would be no caiice Sot. complaint that the Altar cannot be seen. "Who will be the one to bring this admirable practice into vogue? y RHYMING CHRONICLES. (From the First Seniors' Year-Book, 1904-5.) Come back with me to bright Septem-' be i-, The seventh, as we all remember, When from vacation's rest and play. To the dear old school-home we bent our way. Greeting with joy each well-known 1 face. And happy once more in the dear old place. Soon all the pupils, large and small, Assembled in the study hall. To meet and welcome with hearts sin cere, Our new superior and just here, With love's silver bell notes and gratitude's grati-tude's chimes. We echo those welcomes a thousand times! "When our serious duties we had begun, "We found there was little chance for fun. Although when we went out into the yard For botanical work, 'twas not half so hard. One Monday brought us a great surprise, sur-prise, A change we all deemed very wise, For instead of the weekly points as before, be-fore, Once a month we received our class merits' score. October then came with its privileged rare, The first of which was a trip to the fair. Great was our pleasure one of those days. To -hear Mr. "Warde rehearse Shakespeare's Shakes-peare's plays. The artists on tat. Luke's day had a feast; And lo! their number suddenly increased. in-creased. Ah! their hospitality we cannot for-tret, for-tret, Yes, that dear afternoon's a sweet memory yet. Next day we went to Barratt hall, Where Warde was again enjoyed by all. Soon this month fulfilled . its perfect round, "With Hallowe'en play and masked ball crowned. Thus October's golden days were spent, And with Rosary graces we trust they are blent. LOUISE M'HUGII. November first, of nineteen four. All Saints' day opens wide your door, A feast belonging to us all, Unless from God's grace we should fall. Then the "Poor Souls" our prayers enlist, en-list, "With pity that must e'er persist. Next the Alumnae gather 'round, Their Alma Mater with hearts love-bound. love-bound. St. Cecelia's feast, it came to pass. That we all attended a grand high mass, And that afternoon was made full glad, By a candy pull an old-time fad; And each enjoyed her taffy brown. . More than if it came from away downtown. down-town. Then all other affairs were thrown in the shade, Till the jubilee exercises were made. Our next great treat w as Sousa's band. Which every one knows was very grand. Then pictures of the school were taken, Turning out good despite the shakin'; For by the time the spot was chosen, Our heads and feet were almost frozen. Thanksgiving was a gala day; And that night the juniors gave a play. December came with a dale to spare, Miss Babcoek and Monsieur Beaucaire. Then examination had its time, When our courage soared to heights sublime; And with two or three books "under ' each arm, We studied and. prayed to. escape all 'harm. "When these ordeals all were safely o'er Kind Father- Roeser stepped to the door, And invited the seniors out that eve To see how All Hallows boys receive. Of course we returned the compliment And invitations gladly sent To our next affair, the Christmas play, Thus the school-time happily glided I away, And the. long-looked-for holidays came I at last: But they, too, were soon a thing of the i past. January brought us together, a gain; And. the chronicler takes up her pen Two great privileges to record:. The Symphony concert we could not afford To omit, nor yet the beautiful voice Of Melba. singer of the wide-world's choice.' Thus far, our year we've sung in rime, So we'll bid you adieu till some other ; time. JULIA M'CUE. Roll of Honor. ' - Roll of honor for week ending March 10. ions: Senior Department Misses R.
