In Suimmer Apar
The days are past and gone for-
ever when the summer wardrobe of
the feminine swimming enthusiast
consisted of one very practical, if not
beautiful swimming suit, a gingham
dress to wear to and from the old
swimming hole, and a hickory limb
thrown in upon which to hang said
The up-to-date swimmer finds that
this sport necessitates a wardrobe
more extensive than that of the most
unathletic social butterfly. Not only
is it absolutely obligatory these days
to have a large collection of beach
accessories, but we find that the garb
for actual swimming is completely
separate from that which is de rigueur
for lounging on the sand.
Shorts and slacks are the thing for
the beach. The newest thing in the
slack line is a cotton knit fabric which
is made up into separate slacks as
well as in a new over-all style which
is completely backless and features
Sweaters and cotton blouses are
worn with the shorts and there is a
new jacket, styled just like a man's
mess jacket, that gives a very nau-
tical effect to the beach ensemble.
For the swimmer who does not
heed the admonition "don't go near
the water" there are real action swim-
ming suits, that do not differ greatly
from those in vogue last year. Knit
suits of course are the thing for the
conservative swimmer, and they are
still shown with the very low sun-
back. Most suits have adjustable
straps so that the maximum number
of ultra-violet rays may be absorbed
during sun-bathing and the suits ad-

tion for realaction.
Halter backs are very popular and
the new adjustable straps which are
shown are called the "prom" style,
guaranteed to suit your tan to almost
any low-cut formal.
Rubber suits are still very much
the thing. They are made of thick
crepy rubber and are shown in both
one and two-piece styles. The lat-
est have adjustable straps and belt
of heavy white rope.
With graduation coming in the
very near future, many of the so-
rorities and fraternities have started

Shorts The Thing'
For Sports Wear
Fashion is doing drastic things this
season, with all sorts of innovations
coming into their own, but here's the
long and short of summer apparel.
Longer and more feminine for eve-
ning and shorter and shorter for
sports, culminating, in fact, in real
honest-to-goodness shorts for active
Shorts may have been considered
a bit freakish a few seasons ago, but
this year it's freakish not to wear
them. They are the only thing for
tennis, or for the beach and have
proved as comfortable and practical
as they are smart.
This season's versions are shown
in pique and linen, in solid colors, or
with colored stripes or checks. The
sailor note is caught by those which
feature very nautical lacing instead
of buttons and soie are slit all the
way down the side nd laced up, to
insure even greater freedom of move-
Many come in three-piece com-
binations, shirt, skirt, and shorts to-
gether, so that a quick change from
sports to street wear is possible. Other
outfits combine the shorts with very
masculine looking shirts and in these
costumes fashion decrees much very
vivid color contrast.
There are very special sweaters too,
designed for wear with shorts. They
are cotton knits and are made with
quite as little back as the average
bathing suit. A string that ties
around the neck holds the sweater
in place and that's just all there is.
Of course, if you happen to be a
stickler for absolute modesty or if
your skin doesn't take kindly to the
ultra-violet rays, the same knits are
obtainable in a variety of styles with
rather more to them.
