Campus rainwear, as all Umn-
versity fashion, varies from ex-
teminant of drss is practiaity.
The classic outfit for damp
weather includes the long black
umbrella with slender handle and
pointed tip and the green rub-
ber poncho. These coats are both
water repellent and inexpensive.
Parka Length
They come in nearly every col-
or and in a parka length for men.
Hoods are attached and remove
the need for any form of head
covering. These raincoats may be
bought anywhere from the dime-
store to some of the more sophisti-

cated clothi-ng stores. .
Those who do not wish to con-
form to such a degree wear trnc
field styles. Plaids and solid blacks
and whites appear to be most
popular i-n such fabrics as den-
im, madras, cotton, and corduroy.
Slickers and Boots
Some of the more chic may
wear oilcloth or plastic slickers
with hat or high boots to match.

Common accessories include tri-
angle scarves or rain hats, black
