Pajama Styles
Need Brilliant
Color Touches
Ribbed Corduroy, Crepe,
And Velvet Are Popular
Fabrics For Lounging
House parties during J-Hop neces-
sitate the newest and brightest of
lounging pajamas. Bright colors or
startling combinations of light and
dark seem to find great popularity
with new buyers.
For really comfortable pajamas the
ribbed corduroys and heavy velvets
are excellent. They are one-piece and
usually of a single color, bright blue,
red, green or gold. Trimming con-
sists of buttons placed in a mannish
double-breasted fashion on the front
and a narrow belt of the same mate-
rial as the pajamas.
Crepe For Informal Wear
Heavy crepe composes the greater
part of the latest informal garb. It
is with these that designers allow
themselves the greatest leeway in
clever cutting and odd color combi-
nations. One pair was of two shades
of chartreuse green. The bodice and
sleeves were of very light, almost yel-
low, green. The front and back
dipped down to meet the darker
green which composed the rest of the
Another outfit was of light blue.
The top part was smocked across the
front, peasant fashion and a short
waistline jacket of brilliant pink was
worn with the pajamas. The jacket
had huge elbow-length, puffed sleeves
encircled with bands of yellow, green
and blue. The attractive part of this
costume was that the pajamas looked
equally well without the jacket.
Velvet More Formal
More formal and dressy pajamas
are made of transparent or chiffon
velvet. It is not as practical a mate-
rial but infinitely more appealing.
Turquoise-blue chiffon velvet was
chosen for one pair. They were sim-
ply made except for shirred sleeves
and neckline. A graceful sash of the
same shade of blue in crepe tied in
the back and completed the costume.
Russian pajamas are constantly
popular. A gold and black combina-
tion is startling. A two-piece outfit
that was particularly noticeable con-
sisted of black velvet trousers with a
gold-colored tunic. The neck was
high and fastened around the throat
with a black band. Baggy peasant
slevees that came to the wrist was
an added feature, completed with a
gold cord with.enormous tassels
which tied at the side.
"The Collecting of China and Pew-
ter," and allied topics were the sub-
jects for a -talk by Elizabeth Martin,
of Foster's Art Shop, at a meeting
of the Home-Making section of the
Michigan Dames held at 8 p. in. yes-
teiday in the League.
A new venture at Ohio State Uni-
versity is a chess club which has been

1933 Junior Girls Play To Give
New Ideas In Musical Revues

The nature of the 1933 Junior
Girls' Play will be quite different
from that of former productions,
finding the unique in modern scen-
ery, lighting and stage effects. !
Through the medium of splashily
painted back-drops, gay scenes will
be found on the stage as the curtain
rises. This type of scenic effect has,
heretofore, seldom been found except
in Broadway revues and musical
comedies. Achieving stage settings
that are "new and different," the
properties staff have been successful
in getting the technicalities of the
play under way.
Ruth Duhme, '34, chairman of the
properties committee, is now at work
on the sets, a thing which has sel-
dom been done previously by a Jun-

equally cock-eyed tour of Europe in
her Junior Girls' Play, and does it
in a rather interesting song-and-
dance manner," Mr. McCracken de-
clared. "Scenery and costumes will
be used to bring out the satirical na-
ture of the script."
"The painted scenery will be in a
naive mode, and a humerous note
will enter into the designs," he con-
With the co-operative assistance
of every committee, it is expected
that March of this year will "ring
down the curtain" on a musical re-
vue which is decidedly unique, co\.-
bining the elements of satire, grace,
humor and enthusiasm in every
