Spring is bound to come around

RAIDS. This spring, the founda-
tion industry has come up with7
several new items to make the col-
lege boy's favorite sport more ex-
citing. The luckiest participants,
will return with such treasurers,
as the "no-bra," the "body stock-

reich (of topless bathing suit
fame) has designed the "no-bra."

model, butncomes in sheer nylon

They also have the "body
stocking," a garment that looks
somewhat like a tank suit and
offers about as much support. It
was tagged with the name "body
stocking" because the bust area is

young muscles," she said, foresee-
ing the possibility that those with
old and flabby muscles will also
be relying on it.
The saleswoman explained that
the body stocking was meant to be
worn primarily under negligees
and hostess gowns. However, she
predicted that the sheer nude-
colored undergarment will be seen
under white blouses "at the rate
