Picture above shows handiwork of
girls, aged six to 12, who learned new
hobbies at the Day Camp sponsored by
the Girls’ Club during July. The masks
on board at left are examples of papier
mache craft by the youngsters. The
faces were formed by molding wet
paper towels, then taping them with
brown paper tape and finally painting
the features, using wool yarn for hair.
The children wore the masks in an
amateur show climaxing the Day Camp.
Some of the puppets made by the girls
are shown at the foot of the board at
left, while at right are papier mache
animals created by the children and
used in a “Strange Animal Fair.”
Day Camp activities were under the

Mr. McBain emphasized that the Com
pany continues to have faith in State
Street as one of the greatest shopping
centers of the world, but, “just as it
enlarged its ability to serve our rapidly
growing suburban areas by opening Oak
Park, Evanston, and Lake Forest stores
more than twenty years ago, it hopes
further to enlarge its capacity to serve
Chicagoland with this newest develop
ment to the Northwest.”
The new shopping center will be the
Company’s first unit in a location other
than a traditional shopping section. The
project is in line with a trend toward
opening stores away from established
shopping centers, the prime considera
tion being accessability and parking
space. Marshall Field & Company’s
plan to build an outlying shopping cen
ter is akin to that announced by J. L.
Hudson Co., Detroit, several weeks ago.
Field’s and Hudson’s have for years
been neck and neck as the second larg
