Daily Clothes Care Saves Student Budgets

Your budget may be small, but
even so, by being thoughtful about
caring for your clothes you can
make it through classes, dates, and
storms fairly comfortably.
Ch a n g i n g shoes daily may
double their life, according to
Michael Gore's "The Encyclope-
dia of Household Hints and Dol-
lar Stretchers."
Airing shoes, the book explains,
prevents perspiration from rotting
the leather.
Shining new shoes before wear-
ing them helps too. It preserves
the leather and the surface. Shine
them regularly thereafter.
Shop for shoes late in the aft-
ernoon rather than in the morn-
ing, Gore quotes one salesman as
saying. During the day your feet
spread, especially in hot weather
and especially if you use them
Shoes Silenced
Squeaky shoes can be silenced
by making several small holes
through the sole just in bapk of
the ball of the foot.
Lemon juice gives a fine shoe-
shine. Spread a few drops on black=
shoes or on smooth, tan leather
ones, and rub briskly with a soft

v New Fad

According to local merchants,
there are two styles of men's hats
which will be in vogue on campus.
The standard felt hat will
change from the thick heavy hat
for winter to a lightweight,,
streamlined style with narrower
bands and brims. Two hats especi-
ally featured will be the "jet
stream" and'"young executive."
These hats have narrow, raw
edge brims; the "jet stream" has
a low telescope crown with a very
thin hat band and brim, while the
"young executive" has a straight
cente' crease crown with a slight
taper and a one and'three-fourths.
inch brim.
Straw hats are also expected to
be very popular. The colors of the
new straw hats will, range from
natural and bleached coconut to a
khaki tinted hat, and, will have
regimental hat bands. In straw
hat brims the trend this year is
also to regimental bands rather

than the madras or Indian bands.
Brims will be a little wider than
those in felt hats.
Hat merchants expect the
"boater," a white straw with a
black band, to be a popular hat.
Some lightweight, "ivy" cotton
caps are expected for summer.

Men's stores will show more
Bermuda shorts than in previous
years. There will be a greater
variety of materials and added
emphasis oh matched sets.
Indian madras will be used fre-
quently in cut and sewn shirts this
spring. Also expected to be good
"sellers" are the pullover and but-
ton-down jumper. And, as usual,;
the knit will be available in a wide
selection of colors and patterns.

easily with a little turpentine.
Suede shoes can be kept new
by rubbing them with a rubber
sponge or a piece of stale rye
bread after each wearing.
Shoestring Tips
When shoestrings lose their
tips, dip the ends into nail polish
or hot paraffin and twist them.
When a zipper jams, you'll prob-
ably find paper or thread particles
interfering with it. Remove them
patiently. Whenever an end of
fabric or thread is jammed in,
pull it out gently. Hold the slider
by the tab; never push, pull or
To remesh a zipper that has
pulled out of its slider, move the
slider to the open end, hold it
loosely, and insert the end tooth
on the pull-out side into it, where
it should be. Hold flat the rest of
the zipper above the slider, so that
the two sides are exactly parallel
and almost touch.
Now if you are holding them
right, You can slide the slider up
to mesh the teeth of the sides of
the zipper.
Rub With Wax
To make zippers work more
smoothly, rub them occasionally
with a bit of wax.
There are tricks to hanging
things on hangers. To prevent
sleeveless garments from slipping
off wire hangers, bend the ends
of the hanger up.
Hang up a suit or dress imme-
diately after you take it off. The
wrinkles will fall out more easily
if it is still warm.
If your wire hangers give way
under the weight of heavy gar-
ments, bind two or more of them
together with scotch or adhesive
tape. If they threaten to leave
rust stains, wind scotch tape
around them.
Use Hangers
Next time you take off your
topcoat, hang it on a coat hanger
rather than on the cloth loop in
the neck. This measure will help
preserve its shape. So will the
practice of always unbuttoning
your coat when you sit down.
One device can help you starve
your moths. Hang moth crystals
as high as possible in your clothes
closet. The fumes are denser than
air, so they go downward. If you
hang them low, the fumes will
stay at the bottom of the closet.
To keep your hat in shape, put
it away on a flat surface, not a
hook. A soft brush or cloth is
the best thing to clean it with.
Stocking Sies
Don't buy stockings too short
for your foot. The strain will
make them wear through faster.
They should be half an inch long-
er than your foot. Buy dressy
sheers half an inch longer than
usual, and they will last better.
Nylon picks up dyes from other
fabrics readily, so it's wise to
wash stockings separately.
.Can't you pair your stockings
easily? Sew a different-colored
thread to the top of each pair.
Your galoshes need not leave
rings on sheer stockings. Just put
strips of adhesive tape around the
top of the inside of your galoshes.
'A Day of Rest'
Suits, like shoes, last longer if
you give them a day's rest between
wearings. Be careful not to stretch
yoursuit pockets by overloading

when you take them off - untie
To make collars last longer,
turn them down before tying your
tie, not after. Better remove plas-
tic collar stays before having
shirts laundered - too much heat
can fuse them.

Take care when washing wool-
ens. Most woolens and silks can
be laundered successfully if not
exposed to excessive heat or strong
detergents. Rinse twice in water
of the same temperature as the
wash water. Do not wring them;
press the moisture out by squeez-
ing gently.
