Nors bright daps induce one to lay aside
spring attire and to don a Sweater-shirt

You'll like the "feel" of your shirts when you put them on, freshly
laundered by White Swan. You'll like their appearance, too. Collars
spotless and unwrinkled, fronts fresh and white, sleeves soft and clean.
This weather especially calls for "good appearance" in your shirts.
Coats are often off. Warm days and sunshine bring soft white shirts into
their own.

among notably well dressed college women nowadays. The
Sweater is firmly established as an essential part of the

cut, daintily patterned guise or other, is seen at every imagin-
able gathering that is not distinctly formal. You will find
here approved versions of the golf, slipover, sleeveless,
cricket and tuxedo styles.
