Only a few more days are left be-
fore the first football game with its
attendant bands, cheers and milling
crowds,. occurs. To enjoy the game
in comfort is largely a matter of
careful dressing and if one's plans
include a tea or celebration of some
sort afterwards, the selection of
clothes becomes doubly important.
Since the first game is usually
played in ridiculously warm weather,
it is well to choose a smartly simple
wool or knitted dress to be worn
with your knockabout camel hair
coat, which, incidentally, you will
probably shed before the half. The
two-piece knits with a handmade
appearance are better than ever this
year. A classic model which is beau-
tifully tailored but not too severe
comes in a variety of colors. The
wool has a rough look but the effect
is softened by ties at the neck and
waist and such dressmaker details
as tucks and a row of tiny buttons
down the front of the blouse.
Feathers Woven In Wool
The new princess silhouette is
exemplified in a well-cut dress of a
new wool which boasts ostrich fea-
thers in the weave to make it look
light and warm. A little bolero jacket
fits under the flattering Directoire
collar. A shirtwaist style of the same
material is novelized by gathered
shoulders, tiny covered buttons and
a velvet ascot plunged into the high
Camel hair, the season's favorite
coat fabric, comes in beautiful glow-
ing colors such as soft green, a nice
subdued dubonnet and'a lovely warm
rich toast which pleads to be teamed
with the yellow of chrysanthemums.
If you choose a tweed coat and skirt
your coat will probably be a fitted
reefer style.
As for hats, one of the primary
factors to be considered is whether
or not your choice will blow off at a
crucial moment and whether you
will -be compelled to clutch it at
every gust of wind throughout the
game. A securely fitting felt pork-
pie with a softly upturned brim and
a tiny gay feather in its band is more

Knit Your Own'IsTheme Song
As Co-Eds Rush For New Yarn

Brilliant Autumn Colors
Popular For That First
Knitted Suit
The continued popularity of knitted,
dresses makes it possible to achieve
variety and color in the college ward-
At the beginning of the school year,
knits will be worn for all occasions.
There is nothing more popular or
suitable for the classroom than sweat-
ers and skirts or all-knit dresses.
All the yarn companies have re-
cently issued their fall styles. It is
evident that the chic new styles will
insure the stay of hand-knits. Bright
shades for fall, dark ones for winter
and pastels for spring complete the
year's wardrobe.
The military trend is reflected in
a hand-knit dress of a dark color.
The whole outfit is donee in stocking-
net stitch. The jacket is bordered
with a contrasting stitch and zips up
the front. Four frogs of a contrasting
color add the finishing touch to the
Knitted Suits Popular
Knitted suits vie with those of
tweeds in style and line. One made
entirely on diagonal lines has a con-
trasting blouse and a jacket with
diagonal ribs throughout. A coat
style made with a narrow ridge and
sport kick pleats, has a wide leather
belt and wooden buttons. A bright1
scarf and handkerchief add a bit of
Pleats are proving as popular in
knits as in woolens. A shirtwaist
dress with action pleats in front and
back has a yolk and collar of a dif-
ferent stitch. Leather buttons and
belt of a harmonizing color may be
The newest knit coat has all the
latest fashion details. Swing back,
large sleeves and tailored collar are
all included in its style.
Belts And Bows Featured
Looking ahead, a short-sieeved
dress for early spring is jauntily set
off with a huge bow tied through
equally huge bone rings. A wide
suede belt matches the bow and sets
off the dress which has a tricky
ribbing in both skirt and blouse.
A nubby yarn dress has a diagonal
cut to the blouse. The collar and
sleeves are bordered in a bright color
with a matching belt. For the am-
bitious knitter a coat also accom-
panies the demure dress.
A two-piece dress with a ribbed
panel down the front of the skirt has
a jacket made with the ribs. The
raglan sleeves and belt are of a dif-
ferent color and a scarf which pulls
through a bone ring matches the'

Styles Seen In
Hats For Fall
Contractions seem to be the key-
note for fall's latest creations in hats.
High crowns, flat crowns, brims
chopped off in front, back or side,
berets which may be worn anyway,
turbans and off-the-face hats in a
deluge of delightful colors confront
the prospective buyer.
Newest among these is the high
crown which is flattering and a bit
breath-taking. Possibilities with these
hats are endless. Creases and peaks
appear with ribbons, feathers and
Tailored ensembles are best suited
to the mannish hats which dip over
the eye. With a double-breasted two-
piece suit, a wide-brimmed medium-
high hat has a contrasting band, and
a crease similar to a man's hat. To
go with a coat of tweed with wide
reveres, a modified postillion hal
which dips front and back has a
matching hat band.
Fashion has taken comfort intc
consideration as well as height. On a
high-crowned hat, the brim juts out
in front, but becomes a mere noth-
ing in back, lying fiat against thC
head. A large fur collar will not push
this hat out of place.
Also for comfort, one can find
small turbans which are easy to dance


Proves 1lattering
For New Coiffures'
New and different coiffures have
a perennial attraction for the beauty-
conscious woman. She likes to ex-
periment with them in the hope of
improving her appearance. But no
elaborate hairdress can flatter if the
hair itself is not in good condition.

lege wardrobe and there are so many
clever styles to knit that no one can
help but attempt at least one. A
sweater with that classic crew neck
is an excellent start for beginners.
Many companies advertise making
the skirts for a small sum if the
buyer secures enough yarn for both
the sweater and skirt. This should
be a great boon to those who imagine
a whole outfit to be an endless job.
You can now purchase yarn that
is very similar to that used in Brooks
sweaters. The price of these may
be prohibitive but it is cut in half
if you make it yourself.

Flowers, both fresh and artificial,
add to the loveliness of formal toil-

might be striking. However, it would

could carry this off effectively.
In all hair arrangments one should
