Wind Blown Look
Typf ies New Hats
Hats, this season, along with most
everything else, have that wind-
swept look that must have been par-
ticularly designed for Ann Arbor
weather. It doesn't make much dif-
ference if you look as though you
were blown from the front 'or back
as long as the bonnet gives the im-
pression that it is hanging by a hair
--no pun intended.
One of the best examples we saw
was of brown straw with a brim
turned up all the way around and
perched so far on the back of the
head that the hat pin that was sup-
posed to hold it on in back scarcely
seemed like enough. There were two
small green bows, one in front and
one in back that further accentuated
tdat "pushed back" look.
The irregular brimmed hats go one
step further and give the impression
of having been blown from the side
as well. The brim gives a visor ef-
fect on one side and on the other it
is narrowed considerably. One in
brown straw we tried on had a shal-
low crown and a brim that practical-
ly concealed the right eye. The hat
was kept on by the 'help of a small
elastic in the back.
The picture of a woman trying ony
for the first time one of the new
Breton sailors is a study in itself.
First there is the shocked laugh, then
the closer examination and finally
the approval. All too true is the
saying "you must get used to it" and'
what's more your friends must, too.

LAWTON, Okla. - (R) - Too much
lipstick and rouge are abhorrent to
Edwin Markham, the poet, who said
here recently it was "amazing" that
"so many women don't know how
to make themselves beautiful, but
make themselves so ugly."

Sunday brings with it the question
of a dark frock, suitable for church
and later for dinner and a tea date,
but with all having a certain dressed
air. It must fit smoothly under a
coat, and be an appropriate length
for all service. And your final choice
must indicate a rather dignified mod-
el, that has a promise of spring.
The color, it is generally agreed,
should be dark, and lightened by lin-
gerie touches about the neck and
wrists. This is the spot where taf-
feta, that newest contribution for
spring wear, plays a prominent role.
We've seen one navy blue two-piece
frock of this crisp material, that had
a skirt, with the lines of the slim
p e n c i l silhouette, and then was
topped at the neck by a jabot of
pleated lace rufles, with similar
trimming at the bottoms of the
three-quarter sleeves. The entire ef-

feet was ingenue, yet gave that ap-
pearancc of knowing the right ap-
parel for the occasion.
For some time yet, satin trims will
be worn on church-going frocks, be
they of dark wool, or of crepe. Some
of the more subtle models have re-
movable tops, which leave one smart-
ly clothed for supper dancing later
in the day. Usually the cloth com-
binations are enough trimming, but
one often finds small collars of white
or cream.
But taffeta appears again as we
see the hats, bags, and ruffled petti-
coats of it which are displayed in'
the best shops. Not only does it la-
bel you as a sophisticate when your
accessories are of taffeta, but the
thrilling rustle that surrounds your
presence adds to the glamor every
woman desires.
