William Marion Reedy, “Hosiery and Skirts, Etc.” in Goodwin’s Weekly (1919), p. 9—

We want a [J. Edgar] Hoover to regulate skirts and waists and stockings—yes and the cosmetics of the ladies. The paint one beholds! And the ladies are all past impressionists. Their faces rival the works of Matisse or Nevinson or Picabia. They are as barbaric as Gauguin, as cubist or vorticist as Gaudier Brezska. Some of them look like the camouflage ships on the river or in the bay.
