How to keep warm and yet look
smart is a problem that confronts
most of us in this zero weather. Go-
lkshes and wool clothes are certainly
not the last word in romantic ap-
parel, and yet it is surprising how
well they can look given a certain
amount of attention.
To begin with golashes if they are
neat and fit the ankle snugly do not
detract from the appearance. We
saw one pair that looked like shiny
alligator skin and actually compli-
mented a bag of the genuine reptile.
For dress wear the velvet and fur
lined carriage boots (that are not,
by the way the kind grandmother
used to wear to dances) are water-
proof soled and quite appropriate for
street wear. Some ambitious manu-
facturer even turned out overshoes
in gold and silver for evening wear.
Bright wooly sets of scarfs and
hats fairly breath warmth, and are
quite as much appropriate for cam.-
pus wear- as for skating. Also the
bright wool three-quarter length
"campus coats" are smart as well as
appropriate for either the ice or the
