      I found out from a short story by Chicago newpaper writer Geo.Ade--this type of fad collar. If striped, it was the "zebra" It is a collar that is higher than usual, which to a collage boy meant they were special in some way, I suppose. Ha Ha! But they were very serious about it. Maaybe a certain frat. worn by college boys .Ot even pledges? Sooner or later things come to light after we post the picture! I think there is an illustration in the book too, so I will find the book and post the picture tomorrow.

      He's a handsome young man, I don't see any problem with his neck at all. It's an optical illusion, when he takes the collar off, his neck looks just fine and dandy.

      He was fashionable in his day. But durn happy to take it off,--I'll bet.
      But compared to the torture young ladies went thr0ugh trying for an 18 inch waist---men had it pretty easy.
