leroy collar, full petal sleeves, and a
full skirt,. and white lace mitts. Jane
.Edmonson, assistant chairman, who-
attended with King Lewis, '37, also
chose white in sheer crepe with black

tight to the wrist..

Color, Accents Lend Fashion
That More Nautical Appearance

With the coming of summer, fash-
ion seems to favor the navy. Dresses
and accessories have taken on a
nautical- air, and although they do
not necessarily follow the color
scheme of the navy, red, white, and
blue predominates. Many of the
white cottons are trimmed with blue
Alien Women

blue was the color scheme chosen by
Mary Jane Brotherton. Kate Lan-
drum wore plaid organzawith a short
peplum jacket and cartwheel sleeves.
The skirt had inset flares. Betty
Anne Beebe wore a pink crepe, close
fitting,, with a lei of royal blue velvet
flowers around the neck.
Pastels Predominant
Jane OFerrall chose peach organza
in princess lines with a square neck
in back, and wide taffeta straps which
continued. to the floor in a wide flare
to meet the short train. Charlotte
Hamilton preferred----flowered silk
crepe with- orange and brown pre-
dominating. The neckline was cowel
in front and in back was trimmed
with tiny pleats. '
Quiet Conservative
Taste In Clothes Is
Not Virtue In Men
It is high time for an authoritative
article on men's clothes on this cam-
pus from the viewpoint of a woman.
There is much to be said, both in
praise and condemnation on the sub-
ject. In the first place, why must
white shoes be dirty to be correct? It
seems very unnecessary to the average
girl. Casualness in daytime dress is
commendable, but sloppiness never is.
Most of the students are remark-
ably well dressed and on the whole
they present an appearance not by
any means devoid of grooming and
style. But in one particular especially,
they fall short, that of a quiet and
conservative taste. Too many young
men fall a prey to the idea that to be
well dressed is to be heard as well as
seen. Rainbow-hued ties, brilliant
shirts with contrasting collars,
checked coats differing strangely
from their accompanying trousers;
and the ever-present white shoe, meet
one's glance at every trun.
The sporting note is admirable on
a college campus, but it can be, and
is, over done. -knickers are excellent
on a golf course, but worn on the
campus in connection with bright
green wool socks they are not quite
au fait. Bow ties hold a place high
in disfavor also. Especially polka-
dotted ones. There is really no excuse
for such displays.
The white "drinking vests" that one
sees occasionally are beyond words
ridiculous, anad "beer suits" .. , NO.
These examples of bad taste are prob-
ably due to a certain youthful exuber-
ance which may be calmec in time.

rope belts and halter necks are tied
together with a similar rope. Large
sailor collars of blue with several
rows of white braid are very popular
and appear not only on the sportiest
of clothes but'also on the crepe after-
noon dress. Buttons, too, have come
to the fore and are often placeo
down the middle of the collar.
, The nautical atmosphere has also
been accentuated in purses and
gloves. Bags are fastened with little
anchors or minature life preservers,
often made of cork, and several rows
of braid are being used on the cuffs
of summer bloves to complete the
nautical effect.
Evening clothes have departed
this year from ruffles and frills, and
tailored frocks have taken their
place. Formals have become more
sporty and have also borrowed much
from the sailors. Straight lined for-
mals of either blue or white with
large sailor collars of a contrasting
color are especially popular this

Complexion Brush Used
.To Banish Shiny Nose
Hot weather! It had to .come and
now we're all wondering what to do
for that school-girl complexion. After
that wide-awake tennis set or that less
vigorous class, when one's nose looks
and feels verily like a mirror, we seem
to think that we'll never be the same.
However there is a remedy, and it

Thdored ciiin dini
id Piq? It-Style
For Campus Wear
Tailored things for both day and
evening wear are predominate this
year. Gone arc the days for frilly.
iuffly frocks; a sleck appearance is
much more to be desired. The popt-
uarity of trim, tailored clothes for
evening has increased noticeably in
the last year. Smart cut ginghams
and piques are appearing everywher.
Plaids, checks and stripes with fin-
ger-tip length coats are outstanding
on any dance floor.
Shirtwaist dresses are back in
vogue again. They are seen in in-
creasing numbers on and about
campus. They combine the utmost
in practicability and style for class
wear. Their chic severity is well
adapted to a season of tailored lines.
The free and easy cut of shirtwaists
makes them infinitely more desire-
able for summer when comfort is one
of the first considerations. Seer-
sucker and broadcloth are the most;
favored fabrics.
If you must be "ingenue" at night,I
wear tailored clothes in the day time.,
The contrast will be very much to1
your advantage.

Bombshell' Coats
Are Popular For

As in recent years, the swagger coat
holds its imperial domination over
summer styles with a few new and
intriguing touches. White linen is still
popular for sport wear, but pique is
recognized for all occasions. For smart
afternoon swagger, there is the pique
"bombshell coat," seven - eighths
length, with a wide belt and flare
skirt.:A velvet bow-tie at the neck
is just surprising enough to be styl-
ish. The black and white striped swag-
ger in linen takes a tall wearer, with
just enough dash to put it across.
Corduroy in white or ' yellow, when
worn with proper accessories, holds its
own in the swagger world.
The very practical miss looks to the
dress with the three-quarter coat to
match, as a compliment to her budget
and good taste. We fashion followers
