Only Essentials
Articles on beauty aids which de-
scribe creams and lotions by the doz-
en to be applied every night before
retiring and in the morning upon
rising are of little value to the college
woman who makes a non-stop flight
from bed to breakfast table to class
room and drops wearily back into bed
in the early hours of the next morn-
Time is at a premium and the de-
sirable daily grooming is simple and'
of short duration and can still bring
results of clean skin, hair attractive-
ly dressed, correct make-up, well-
groomed eyebrows and nicely mani-
cured nails.
Clean, healthy hair is a great asset
and it will be found that a recondi-
tioning treatment or hot oil shampoo
is as almost refreshing as a check
from home. Over the weekends,
niore complicated dressing is at-
tempted. It pays to experiment with
new styles, if only to achieve variety.
Curls piled high are the most pop-
ular concessions to formality.
Along with a strong, unadorned
hairbrush, a college woman ranks a
good, mild soap. A complexion brush
is also a great aid to the clean, crub-
bed look so valued on campus. Few
creams clutter dormitory dressing
tables and a minimum of make-up is
applied for class. Lipstick of course, l
is in constant use, and lipsticks are f

Swing music has taken the country
by storm! Where there's swing, there's
rhythm. . . and where there's rhythm,
there's grace. So college fashions
step up to take their place in the
best of swing circles.
Although you've probably decided
that practicality will be your watch-
word for your college wardrobe it is
impossible to resist those new frocks
with the swingy notes such as tunics,
boleros and peplums. Undoubtedly
you have included one of these newer
notes in one of your dressy after-
noon gowns. Even the princess
fashion from bygone days has left the
straight line and swings out danger -
ously at the hemline.
'Evening Swing Gowns,
The Greeks had a word for it! Well,
so has fashion . . . "The Evening
Swingown." This winter the col-
legians will swing into their night
life in a swish taffeta dress. Frolic-
some little basques and peplums'shoct
out in back. Black is the leader
but royal blue is on the way up.
Strictly formal dresses are at a prem-
ium but dinner gowns can be found
just everywhere. Black velvet, that
classical combination, still rates very,
very high. It's really so sophisti-
Evening wraps are short and swingy
-or fit beautifully at the waist and
drop down and sweep the floor. Black
velvet again comes into prominenc┬░
and white lapin coats are just too de-
ightful. Short bunny wraps are as
dead as hip flasks because they have
a tendency to shed all over your boy
friends' dark clothes.
Shoes are aspiring things this fall,
swinging up on your foot to hit a
new high in fall fashion. Manufac-
turers have evolved an ankle hugging
boot which they call the "highboy."
Sweaters and skirts! Everyone
wears them and a collection of sweat-
ers will be the envy of every girl in
college. A few well-styled tweed
skirts combined with these sweaters
will serve admirably for classroom
Three-Piece Suits Galore

The freshman's debut into that
most exciting of years plunges her
into a whirl which makes exacting
demands on her wardrobe. Directly
after Orientation Week's tests and
speeches, sorority rushing starts, and
rushing means tea, informal dinner,
luncheon and formal dinner engage-
To begin chronologically, Saturday,
Sept. 26, sees the first rushing tea.
Afternoon dresses of wool
and crepe and suits are
in order here; the too
sporty and the too elab-
orate should be avoided,
Perhaps the freshman
has read that sweaters
and skirts are ubiquitous
at college, but they are
exclusively for campus
wear, and the extremely
dressy silk or velvet
should be saved for the Sunday tea.
Any one would be able to swing up
the walk of her first sorority with a
jauntiness she did not feel if she was
wearing a coral wool tunic dress and
a smaller small brown antelope hat.
Buttoned straight down the front, the
tunic has a brown velvet ascot as its
only trimming. The hat with its
peaked crown and feather (a feather
is absolutely mandatory this year)
complements this outfit. .
A good looking knitted suit might
also ring bells with rushers if it was
of the currently popular coronation
blue trimmed only with three red
frog fastenings. A tiny blue hat
with a tucked crown and a startling
feather would finish off this costume
with the dash it demands. Since one
makes only a brief visit at each soror-
ity during these initial teas, most
people keep their chapeaux on their
heads. This keeps the coiffure in
order and sometimes pre-
vents said chapeaux from
being squashed in an up-
stairs bedroom.
Freakish color combi-
nations might infuse
some of the nerve into
their wearer which she
needs along about 6:45
p.m., after wandering be-
wilderdly all over Ann
Arbor looking for cer-
tain Greek letter houses. Magenta
trimming and accessories mated with
soft guardsman's blue is exciting, and
is being seen a lot this fall. An en-
semble of the more formal type
which might be worn with impunity
for a Sunday tea combines these
two colors pleasingly. The short
sleeved wool dress of the blue has

magenta flowers at the square neck-
line, while the short swagger coat of
magenta is topped by a luxurious grey
fox collar.
Black, however, eternal
favorite that it is, will not
step into the background
for any young upstart of a
color combination. It as-
serts its place in the
fashion world with re-
newed assurance in dresses
that make one feel truly
"dressed up." One little
black velvet with a round
collar of starched white lace has a
band of the lace inserted in the
middle of its short puffed sleeves.
Another velvet, buttoned down the
front with tiny silver buttons, uses
green discreetly in scalloped edgings
on collar and sleeves. Both of these
would go over for Sunday engage-
This year's rushing 'dinners give
the rushee a little breathing spell
after the first plunge, for she has
until Tuesday to think about what
to wear on that day and on Thurs-
day. And she will not have to
think vrey hard, for she can wear
clothes of the same type as those
she wore on Saturday and Sunday.
However, the two Saturday luncheons
are different, for one can be dressed
a little more casually, a tweed suit

Latest Fashions Will Be Seen

Belts of corded fabric are new and
make skirts more flattering when
worn with tuck-in blouses. They may
also be worn over-blouse fashion with
sweaters, and are smart with sports
frocks. Thin belts of pigskin, along.
with leather belts and matching but-
tons arc the thing for" sportswear.




Fall Parade Of Shoes Is Led

the third and last week of
rushing, the freshman has
ample opportunity to pa-

wear. She can follow her

Freshmen will be glad to hear that
low-heeled sport shoes are the most
satisfactory for campus. They are
easier on the disposition since an
astounding numb'er of miles must be

calf oxford and the monk type will
probably prove the most popular.

ish pink will be most popular for the
new evening sandals. One style has
two wide bands of leather across the
foot, and two more very high on the
instep, giving an almost boot-like
appearance to the shoe which has
high tapering heels.
Built on a very high heel, a kid san-
dal has only one wide strap wound
cleverly to make an unusual evening

type rather than the extremely dar-
ing. Incorporating both the King
Edward coronation influence, and the
vogue for the dinner dress, one model
of black paper taffeta figured all
over with royal blue circles, has a
corsage of matching feathers at the
low v neck. The sleeves are demurely
feathers in. the hair would make
this costume unforgetabable.
"The Little Emperor's" personality
is felt this season, not only in his-
tory 12, but also in the realm of
style, for evening capes have a Na-
poleonic swagger in their squared
off shoulders. One cape of this type
in hunter's green would be perfeet
worn over a green lam6 dress

A tweed or soft wool suit is a good
investment and probably there will i
be three-piece suits galore in the col-
lege wardrobes. A fur coat will do
wonders for your morale and they
follow the new swing trend, too. Short
flat furs, such as beaver and caracul,
have completely stolen the fashion
spotlight from the heavy, bulky rac-
coons of bygone eras.
Fur collars aim high! Fur-trimmed
cloth coats will be more prominent
on campus this year than ever be-
fore. These coats are being shown
in a wealth of novel and lovely colors
but black promises to be the smart-
est especially when combined with
persian lamb. For wear right now a
loose swagger of camel hair is defi-
nitely college material.
Now for the odds and ends that
cement thewardrobe together. k
suede or leather jacket is a remark-
ably useful thing to have in one's
closet and they really do beautifully
for field trips. Shirts of the man-
tailored type are second to sweaters
