What To Wear To Teas,
Dinners And Luncheons
Described In iDetail
Simplieity Is Rule
For Smart O tafiits
Last Two Parties Are To
Be Scenes Of Elegant
Formal Attire
What to wear for rushing dinners
is the question that looms up before
women new to the ways of the cam-
pus. To look one's best, correctly to
the last detail, is the desire of all
about to begin the whirl connected
with choosing a sorority.
Sorority women have the upper
hand in knowing how best to dress
for all rushing events. It is the fresh-
men who are at a loss. So a word
to the wise.
First of all are the formal teas.
For the long trek from house to house,
a variety of outfits are equally suit-
able. For the Saturday teas, tailored
silk dresses or dressy wools take the
limelight. An ideal three-piece cos-
tume recently seen combined pine
green plaid with dark brown wool.
The foundation of the outfit was a
smartly tailored brown wool with a
high roll collar. Over this is worn a
green plaid overblouse, buttoning up
the back, and intricately pleated in
front. The third piece is a finger
tip length coat of the plaid lined
with the brown of the dress and flair-
ing out gaily in the back.
Weather Is Factor
The weather is the big item to take
into consideration, and on one of Ann
Arbor's hot days frequently encoun-
tered during Indian Summer, a lighter
weight outfit would be much more
desirable. Such a dress would be
found in a rust and brown shown
in the window of an Ann Arbor shop.
The brown dress is topped with a
rust peter-pan collar edged in kolin-
sky fur. A rust belt continues the
color combination.
The Sunday tea offers an oppor-
tunity to wear ones more dressy en-
sembles. A crepe dress with the full-
ness gathered to the front in one of
the many variations of red shown
this fall would make a rushee feel like
the latest edition from Paris.
But don't be misguided by the term
"formal tea." Above all, don't dress
too much. Long dresses and exces-
sive jewelry is quite out of place with
the simplicity of well-dressed rushees
one encounters.
Wear To Dinners
For dinners, any of the outfits de-
scribed for the teas would be suitable
for these events. Many of the soror-
ity women will be wearing the same
outfits to the dinners in which they
appeared in campus that day, and the
rushee will do well to follow her ex-
The Friday and Saturday dinners
are more dress-up affairs than the
others for one goes on her date di-
rectly after dinner. -An informal
gown will.fill the requirement excel-
lently. A tailored velvet in black,
ankle length, featuring Queen Anne's
lace around the high neck and long
sleeves with fullness above the elbow
would be charming.
Long dresses are not at all essen-
tial for the week-end dinners, and a
crepe such as one seen in pine green
with two stripe of gold cloth and gold
covered buttons dowr the center
front would also be very suitable.
And the breakfasts and luncheons

Perfect For Rushing

Coats for sport and dress, for
fall and wintery breezes, are a big
factor in the college women's ward-
robe. A few models seen in a show-
ing of winter coats begin displayed
in a local shop may aid you in your
choice this fall.
Topping the list in dress coats is a
smart new fitted model in black and
wool and Persian lamb. Ones first
impression is of vertical lines. But-
tons from the throat to the hemline
and double bands of Persian lamb on
either side carry the eye the length
of the coat. A perky winged collar
of the fur and sleeves increasing in
width toward the wrist and the tight-
ly drawn into a band and bordered
by the lamb at their fullest point con-
tinue the lines. A wide leather belt
buckled in silver completes the coat.
Grey Krimmer For Di e ss
Another excellent cloth coat for
dress occasions is one of green wool
and grey krimmer. Bat sleeves with
wide cuffs of krimmer are drawn
in. tightly at the waistline by a series
of tucks. Below the tucking the skirt
of the coat falls in full, flattering
lines. The front of the.coat is faced
formal, the conservative white lapin
jackets of any length from the waist
to the floor or black velvet wraps of
floor or three-quarter length are1
excellent. A variation of the black
velvet wrap is the cape style. Capes,7
short or long, hooded or not will
grace any formal. A smart looking
variation from the usual formal wrap
is a white silk brocaded in silver.
The coat is finger tip length with aa
saucer collar and sleeves very full
about the elbow.
To feel well dressed is the first
step toward having a good time and
being at ease. To achieve this end,
simplicity above all is the rule to
follow, for dresses are meant to bring
out one's personality, not to hide it
through elaborateness anti over-dec-

with krimmer, which continues up to
form a saucer collar.
An unusual fall color in coats is dis-
played in an off blue creation trimmed
in mole, the blouse back and sleeves
made of the fur.
A new material shown for coats
this fall is called "velours du nord."
It is similar to velveteen, but is much
more durable and heavier. This,
made in fitted lines and trimmed in
black or red fox or caracul with an
accompanying muff would make a
charming addition to any women's
wardrobe for those special dates.
And for wear on campus, swagger,
fullness and gay colors in solids and
tremendous plaids are ideal. One
seen was in brown and white plaid
tweed with wide roomy sleeves and
looking as if the wind was whipping
the back right off. It is climaxed
by a bushy raccoon collar.
A warm, wooly soft camel's hair
coat is the joy of every woman on
campus. They are shown in every
sport style imaginable: belted with
two pleats down the back and wide
lapeds, full swagger falling from the
shoulders down and even accented by
fur. A model seen with fur trim was
belted with wide sleeves cut in one
piece with the back.
Dash and action are the main fea-
tures of coats to be worn on campus,
but for those more special occasions,
elegance and grandure is the key-
note to follow.
The latest shades in fall hosiery are
wine and green. These shades are
especially effective when worn with
contrasting colors. Green is being
shown with brown and wine outfits
and wine with grey and brown.
New slips being shown this fall are
in dark shades. Black and brown
slips to match dresses of these colors
will avoid the embarrassing situation
of "PHD," petticoat hanging down.

An informal perfectly suited, for
wear at rushing dinners and for in-
nuberable occasions later in the year.
on Saturday. Gay colored wools and
knits will be seen in great numbers.
As an example there is an extremely
sporting outfit combining green, yel-
low and rust in a large plaid. The
skirt is bias and the plaid runs
straight in the shirt-waist blouse.
The climaxing events are the two
formals. Then the rushee appears at
her best in her favorite and most flat-
tering formal gown. Fall fashions
offer a style for each type, the tall,
the short, the sophisticated and the
naive and sweet. But be sure that
you pick your own type. It may be
your ambition to be tall and willowy,
the ultra-sophisticated but a dress
alone cannot achieve this effect.,
Rather it onlya tends to emphasize
yout deficiency. A charming formal
being displayed in a local store is
excellent for the freshman's choice.
One, in a deep rose shade, is made
of heavy slipper satin. It features
a tightly fitting bodice, with a low
off the shoulder effect and a wide
sweeping skirt.

PREPARE a whole breakfast-a man's breakfast
in your electric oven in twenty minutes!
Muffins, broiled bacon and eggs can all be prepared
at the same time, and served together, deliciously
hot and appetizing. Enhanced flavor, like that of
old English 'grilled bacon, results from electric
broiling. The bacon is evenly browned and keeps
its shape-it does not shrivel into unmanageable
curlicues. Even the eggs taste better than when
fried, thanks to the "flavor conserving" heat of the
electric oven, which does not cook to toughness but
cooks thoroughly and gently. Finally, electrically
baked muffins are delightfully flaky and tempting
-a treat to top off any breakfast! Here is a meal
after a man's heart-and with an electric range, it
takes only 20 minutes to prepare.
Why not give yourself and your family the enjoy-
ment of modern electric cooking in your home? Its
benefits are so worthwhile-its advantages so many
--that there is really no reason why you should
