Brown, jr. Mrs. Gregory wears a black and white tweed skirt with a sweater hand-screened to match. Mrs. Lowrey and Mrs. Langford are wearing raccoon coats of the 1930 vintage over knickers, which are replacing Bermuda shorts on the golf links this fall. Mrs. Brown's sweater is designed to look like a cardigan over a slipover. The clothes are from the Mademoiselle Shop.
