Suit Time Begins;





Three-Quarter Length Coat
To Be In Favor; Town
Outfits Not Tailored
Short Jackets Are
Smart For Sports
Tweed Keeps First Place
For Hard Wear; Green
With Blfde Is Popular
There are all sorts of exciting new
spring suits for the co-ed to choose
from this season and to judge from
the weather, it is time to begin. As
to style in suits, relatively few col-
ors are being worn. About seventy
\er cent of them will be navy blue
again, and among the rest will be
found various other shades of blue,
gray, tan, green, and brown and tan
The dressy suit may have a short
or a three-quarter length coat, but
the latter are said to be the more
popular, because they can be worn
very nicely with other dresses. A large
per cent of the suits of this type,
whether with the long or short coat,
are trimmed with fur, mainly with
fox, but some have a severely plain
neckline. Still others are trimmed
with large stitched lapels of taffeta.
Split skirts are still being featured.
Dainty Touch on Suits
Ilustrative of this type of suit is
a tailored model, having a tight fit-
ting black worsted jacket and skirt
in Oxford stripes. A distinctive touch
is provided by a crisp organdie ruche
and white flower in the button hole.
The new wool jacquette frock in,
perhaps, a navy blue, is very smart
when set off by a white pique ascot
printed in a lighter tone and but-
ted to the front.
Here is something new in the way
ot a suit, a Russian peasant coat
tat looks like a dress, buttoning from
hem to tiny turn-over collar exactly
like a shirt frock. It is of imported
diamond weave worsted made from
Australian yarns.
The new subtle shades of spring
are inspiring -women to be original
this season. Among them is the Ro-
mano blue, which is set off to ad-
vantage when worn with a long
waisted white blouse caught in by
a belt. In this case the suit coat
should be of a three-quarter length.
Reflective of a well-bred simplicity
the Trutan beige makes an exqui-
site color for a long coat trimmed in
red fox.
Violet Wool Smart
Equally smart and very new is a
wool violet tweed tailored suit, hav-
ing a short high-buttoned dandy's
jacket and slightly flaring skirt. The
blouse is of a parma violet silk and
is ingeniously matched by a nosegay
of the shade worn at the collar.
The semi-sport or dressy sport
type of suit features short jackets.
Here, for example, is one of the new
tidy tailleurs of soft imported woolen
material. The skirt is made to button
all the way up the front and fits the
figure to exactness. The button motif
is also carried out on the chic little
suit coat, which is set off by a neat
collar of white pique.
The typical town suit should be
soft and not too tailored. A rough
wool is the correct material and may
be dressed up cr down according to
the choice of blouse.
For the hard wear suit a tweed
is the thing. A clever feature this
year is a two-skirt suit, one skirt
matching the dark brown jacket and
the other a brown and tan combina-
tion, usually in the form of a large
check. Many sport suits are three
piece, predominating color combina-
tions being green with blues, beige
with brown and green, or all brown.

In recent elections Chi Omega sor-
ority chose Sally Browne, '36, rush-
ing chairman, Helen Haxton, '36, as-
-sistant rushing chairman, Billie
Faulkner, '37, assistant rushing chair-
man, and Jean Snyder, '36, chapter

Sport Dresses
Are Ideal For
Campus Wear
Knit Suits Combine Art
And Utility In Models
For Warm Weather
It's all very well to spend hours
discussing glamorous new formals or
striking spring wraps but everyone
knows that at this season of the
year such gorgeous garments are all
but forgotten in favor of the simple
sport dress. In the spring it's the
girl who looks alluring in out-of-
doors attire who really ratas, an;d
ony the one who is still attractive
with her hair all rumpled and her
nose slightly sunburned who knows
real peace of mind.
For many seasons fashion has been
doing her best to combine art and
utility in the perfect sport costume
and this year she seems to have at-
tained her goal in the knitted dress.
This is the ideal outfit for daytime,
because it is suitable for every activ-
ity from golfing to tea dancing, not
to forget that unimportant side-line
of attending classes.
Knit-Wear For Spring
And lest the word knit still hold
some of its old connotation which
conjures up visions of a heavy, fuzzy
woolen garment, may we hasten to
add that the new knit goods is as
light and spring-like as most of the
silks or cottons which are shown.
The loose weave which is used in
most of these frocks is responsible in
part fcr their summery appearance,
but the yarn itself differs radically
from the heavy wool with which
grandmother used to knit her afghan.
Caronne, a silk yarn with a thread of
wool in it is one of the most pop-
ular and the familiar chenille is
also good.

Simplicity To Be
Quality Of Ne
Simplicity is the outstanding qual-
ity of the newer gloves. Whether
they are to be worn for sport, for
street, or for evening, they are alike
in their plainness.
The familiar and usually very pop-
ular buckskins are being overshad-
owed by many less
familiar materials.
Pigskin, chamois,
doeskin, bengaline, 1
.". a nd string c u t
. gloves are heading
the fashions in the
glove world. .id-
skins are still good, however, and will
be worn by those who enjoy being
Pigskin and chamois are being-
shown almost exclusively for sport
and campus wear. The pigskins are
available both in white and natural
shades, the latter loking especially
striking when worn with brown, and
the white proving an excellent con-
trast when paired with navy blue.
One popular style is shown in natural,
pigskin laced up the side in a con-
trasting shade of brown. Another in
chamois is a pull-on with a strap at
I the back of the wrist to pull it snug.
For a smart sports outfit one could
do no better than to have a match-

w Spring Gloves
ing hat, shoes, gloves and purse of
The two-way-stretch silk corded
bengaline is by far the newest and
most popular of the glove materials
for general wear. These gloves are
smartest in navy blue. The bengalines
are mostly of very simple design, but
anyone liking more elaborate styles
will be pleased by
those trimmed with
c u ff s of taffeta
ruffles o r corded
material. One pair
recently featured in
one of the leading
fashion magazines
has a very plain
cuff edged by a tiny
band of white. An-
other clever pair
which can be purchased is made with
a lace-like crocheted cuff. String cut
gloves in all light colors are also
good for everyday wear.
White doe skins are featured for
evening. They are practical as well
as very smart looking for they can
be washed easily. Very plain, they
are made to reach the mid forearm.
Three button kidskins of navy and
gray with a very little white stitch-
ing are also good for evening wear.

Spring's New f
Sweaters Are
Practical And Attractive
Linens Are Predominant
In Cooler Weather
For the 1935 spring sweaters, manu-
facturers have concocted more gay
colors and more original designs
than ever before. The sweaters are
soft and the blouses crisp, and both
are lovely.
In the line of blouses, linens are
predominant right now, and later,
as the weather becomes warmer, dim-
ities, organdies and tissue ginghams
will be the favorites. But if you're
looking for something to rejuvenate
your winter suit, the shops are full
of piques, linens and seersuckers.
Linen Practical Now
The linen ones are now made so
that they are practical as well as
attractive. The days of rapid wrink-
ling linens are fading into the past.
Some of the linens and pique blouses
are trimmed with literally dozens of
buttons, big cloth-covered ones or
small pearl ones. Somehow a demure
touch has crept into these tailored
blouses whic his just what they need

If you are looking
more dressy than the

for something
ordinary street
blouse, there
are taffetas,
si1k crepes,
and prints'
that breathe
femininity at
every s e a m.
The sweat-
ers are as
variegated as
t h e blouses.
They are so
soft that one
touch of their
lacy sleeves or
r abbits-h a i r

to keep them from being to austere
and business-like. Or if you prefer
to have a business-like attitude ex-
pressed in your clothes, try some of
the shirt-waists of cotton, and prints.
One piquant seersucker is blue plaid
with large white pique reveres. It is
nice to wear on rainy spring days
because dampness will not wilt its


trimming will convince you of their
allure. Salmon pink, turquoise blue,
Holland yellow and aqua-green are
some of the lovely tints, while white
remains tie perennial favorite.
The knits are so different. One
sweater originally designed fr Saks
Fifth Avenue, is vertically ribbed and
is just the thing for the girl who
yearns to be the slender, willowy type.

An especial dinner was held at
Martha Cook last night honoring
about 30 residents whose birthdaysk
occur during holidays and vacation1
periods. Each woman honored re-
ceived an individual cake and candle.
Coral sweet peas and roses and
ivory tapers were used on the dining
tables. Coffee was served in the Blue
Room afterwards. Margaret Bartley,
'36, and Margaret Van Vleck, '36, were
in charge of arrangements.

Patent Leather Purses
One can scarcely think of gloves
without thinking also of a purse.
Patent leather is one of the newest
and the smartest of purse materials
for this spring. To be - extremely
chic one could not do better than
to select one of rich brown or navy
blue. Either an envelope type with
one of the new slit corner openings
which are so popular or a pouch
style trimmed with a contrasting
rough leather will be a worthwhile
addition to anyone's accessories.

Sport Designs
Favored Fo r
New Jewelry
It will be almost impossible for
anyone to conceal her favorite sport
this spring, because the new cruise
jewelry which is so very popular for
sports wear appears in the form of
anchors, golfsticks, paddles, and ten-
nis racquets. The former shapes are
shown mostly in clips and pins. Life
saver bracelets and clips are also very
popular. Shown in navy blue, red, and
white, they add distinction to any
sports costume.
There are all kinds of fascinating
jewelry for evening. Gold still sur-
passes every other shade, but all
types of blue, especially turquoise,
and yellow are very good too. The
general appearance of the pieces is
very heavy. The surprising thing about
it is that most of this jewelry is in
reality, very light.
Dress clips, bracelets, and earrings
are among the most popular articles
of jewelry. There are an indefinite
number of styles from which toI
choose. The diamond clasp which
decorates your bracelet may, when you
take it off, prove to be a clip. One
smart bracelet shown is of gold set
with pearls. Another of black enam-

Luscious Shades
One of the most intriguing things
about the knit frocks is the variety
of luscious shades in which they are
shown. Even the names are intrigu-
ing, including as they do such titles
as coppertint, berry rose, medieval
blue, and sun orange.
The neck treatment here is impor-
tant as it is in everything this
spring. Necklines are consistently
high and are trimmed with cord
tassel ties or with jabots.
In addition to the knitted sports
frock, sheer flannels in two-piece
styles and pastel shades are very
important. They are extremely tail-
ored, made with the pinch-back and
often buttoned down the front. Large
wooden buttons are the most pop-
ular trim, as well as pipings or
These fashions of course are in
addition to the ever-popular sweater
and skirt, than which there is noth-
ing better for spring sports wear.
But however good they are it's nice
to inject a little variety into the
wardrobe with a knit or flannel which
is a more all-around costume as well
as having a bit more of that feminine
eled metal doesn't quite meet around
the wrist.
Among the earrings being shown,
those which clip to the ear predom-
inate. Gold leaf designs in all sizes
and of all kinds prove to be very good.
One pair seen were made up of three
pendants extending down with tiny
leaf designs at their tips.
One of the best looking of the
clips to be had is of gold shaped
triangularly and covered with bril-
