The one new look for young
men, guaranteed to virtually sweep
across the U.S. of A. in a man-
ner roughly approximating Sher
man's march to the sea, is the
dashing young uniform of the
armed forces. Those who view
with terror this coming sweep of
the scythe, are quite simply ig-
noring the vast fashion benefit
to be obtained from the draft.
For instance, those little differ-
ences of rank and ideology which
are only perpetuated by the cloth-'
ing, would be removed. For in-

MEN'S RAINWEAR, as well as women's, will work upon the popu-
lar Epionage theme. This puddle-jumper wears a design of tried-
and-true khaki. The sleek, unbroken front of this raincoat makes
it a natural for even clear weather, as it may be worn also as a
serviceable spring coat. And, in Ann Arbor, nothing could be
more sensible than being prepared with an ever-ready raincoat.
The manly black umbrella, which completes the ensemble, is also
fast becoming an item of everyday status.
Lace shall move out into the
world of sportswear. Bell:.
bottomed pants, already this year's
greatest look in casual wear, are
being manufactured in all types
of foreign and domestic lace. The
colors, too, will move with a mod-

and even red.
In swimming wear, the lace two-
piece promises to be a wild new
look for the summer. Designers are
now showing ensembles of the
basic suit, with an unlined over
jacket. It may become a real sta-
tus symbol to display a tan which
is patterned by the lace interfer-
ence with the sun. One small
problem in this fashion has al-
ready been noted, however. For
the lace is extremely sensitive to
chlorine pools and sea water. As
the old song once said, "Hang
your clothes on a hickory limb,
but don't go near the water."
