Halo Was First Worn By Freich Spinsters

The co-ed of today hardly dreams
that, her modern halo hat once was
worn entirely by French spinsters-
,hen they went to pray to St. Cath-
arine for a husband.
And if their bonnets were as fetch-
ing as the newest hats displayed,
they prayers must surely have been
answered. Many variations of this
style will be seen on the heads of
smart women everywhere this spring.
Usually of straw, these will be either
demurely unadorned or gay with
clusters of flowers for wear with
the new print dresses.
Muffin Role Innovation
The ever-popular Breton sailor is
represented by the iuffin roll. One
of the loveliest is an off-the-face
Breton in straw of the thistle shade.
Navy grosgrain forms the band which
ties in a big bow in the back. The
crown is tipped slightly forward.
Turbans still retain their popular-
ity for formal afternoon occasioncv
One, of navy pleated taffeta, has a
long, flowing Moroccan sun protec-
tor down the back. Another style ,is
a wound fabric turban with no crown.
This corpes in all colors.
Gaucho, Breton Vie
The Spanish influence is depicted
in the Gaucho., On. the.Breton type,
it is made of red earth felt and
navy grosgrain with a puff ball of
navy tucked under the left side. Worn
over one eye, it goes perfectly with
the dramatic bolero costumes.
Of all the fashion notes for spring,
paisley is the most important. Used
for everything from trim to entire
hats, it either dresses up 'a plain
dress or matches a print one. A
great many of the shiny muffin roll
straws have a paisley band on the
crown which goes down through the
brim to form tails in the back. Paisley
turbans also come .with matching
All the hats come in the gayest of
colors, for this Spring fashion de-
crees that one of the colors in the
froc must be repeated in the hat and
gloves. E

Casual Coat Still Chic

around coat with a large, stand-up
collar. Note the slash pockets.

Nine New Hosiery Tones Arei
Usurpingn Limelight For Sriiw

The latest in spring hosiery shades
are nine new tones usurping the
limelight. The lightest of these is
Sunhaze which is a vivacious beige.
flattering to summery clothes in
white, natural, pastels, and gay tones.
It also blends well with blues, 'beiges,
browns, greens and black.
Titian is a light beige, good with
white, complementary to all blues,
reds, and yellows. It is smart with
dark spring prints, beige, or grey, and
contrasts with dusty pink and violet.
Another new shade is Avenue,
which is a warm, light beige for after-
noon wear. It is also a versatile shade
for light gay prints and dusty panels.
Glow is a coppery hue for spring
and summer wear. It supplies a con-
trast for white, natural linen tones,
and pastels, including aqua and tur-
quoise. It is good for daytime wear
with light. prints, blues, beige, or
Auburn is a coppery tan of leather
type which contrasts with light colors
and accents dark colors.
A rich neutralkbeige for sports and
tailored wear is Swanky. It goes with
many beiges, browns and neutral
tans and with blues, navy, greyish

greens, and black.
Amber is a dark brown beige which
makes a good street shade. It will
be good for spring with browns, dark
coffee beige, yellowish greens, rusts,
and brownish mixtures like tweeds,
and is stunning with black.
Townwear is a greyed beige neu-
tral shade for general wear. It com-
plements navy, smoky blues, greys,
reds, greens, beiges, browns, and
The darkest shade is Browntaupe,
which is a brown neutral tone for
dark and medium costume colors.
It blends well with browns, rosy
beiges, navy, medium blues, greens,
and wine reds.
New "crepe twist" stockings will
soon be shown and promise to be very
popular this spring.
With grey shades distinctly on the
wane for stocking wear, rich sun
colors suggestive of spring are offered
to the well dressed miss.
The namessofsun-gold, suntan,
and koma have an exotic tropical
lilt, which is justified by a sight of
the dyes in sheer stocking fabrics.

Simple Lines'
Spring weather brings us a galaxy
of new blouses to be worn with tail-
ored suits. Simple styles with touche,
of color and dress-makers details dis-
tinguish the season's newest. High
neck-lines, little turn-over collars
and short sleeves will be the popula*,
version. .
Handkerchief linen makes a smart
blouse with a front of fine vertical.
pleating. The tailored skirt is ver-
satile this season with a frilly jabot
that may be buttoned on, wnaking it
useful for any ; occasion. Crepe is
attractive in a flame color with nar-
row white piping, and a white zipper
fastening. Another favorite in crepe
has a corded neck-line and cording
banding the sleeves.
Campus women will welcome the
new non-crushable material, orchid-
skin, which a shop features in a light
grey blouse with dark red piping and
red wood buttons. For those seeking
a more feminine style, a dainty lace
blouse in shell-pink is the essence
of spring, with a tiny bunch of spring
flowers at the neckline.
Dainty embroidery or tucking on
sheer organdy makes blouses that
are "ne plus ultra" for tailored suits.
Most blouses of this type come in
white and their freshness adds im-
measurably to the smartness of an

Curls, Curls And More Curls
Will Be 'Tops' In Hair Styles


"Uneasy lies the head that wears
the crown"-but not if the crown is a
roll of soft curls that are taken into
a horse-shoe roll at the back, or a
rolling wave with two rows of ring-
lets set high on the head.
The complexities of coiffures have
been set forth in the swirling decrees
of spring and received by the beauty
Simplicity of style comes to the
fore to balance the loveliness of the
Easter bonnets. Any of the new types
of hats expose the hair and give wide
scope to variations in artistic design.
For chapeaux with low crowns fa-
shion demands a sleek top, while lit-
tle tilted numbers are made more
effective by the piling of curl-clusters
on one side of the head.
Curls Fringe Skull Cap
If you're considering a skull cap,
you must have a hedge of curls all
the way around your head. But surely
hats aren't everything and there are

innumerable majestic modes for af-
ternoon and evening wear.
One popular suggestion casts the
forelock back where it is gathered
in soft curls and in the front ap-
pears just the hint of bangs.
"Evening Enchantment" stresses
swept-up waves at the temples and
a halo roll brought high on the
Simplicity Taboo
The coronet influence is much in
evidence. Loose curls edge the smooth
crown with a center part that ex-
tends part way down the back.
Braids and brands are useful for
quick changes as well as originality in
coiffures. The band may be arranged
as a wide or narrow sheath, twistea or
crossed, depending upon which style
is most becoming to the individual.

chose to turn the ends of his hair
