Furs For Dress
By JEAN HASTIE
A fashion "must" for the smart
co-ed is at least one and preferably
several wool sports frocks for the
classroom and coke dates: Today,
sports dresses must be as sleek as
evening gowns. They cling religious-
ly to the waistline, and flare out-
rageously at the hemline.
These new dresses come in warm
autumn shades in such grand ma-
terials as cashmere, jersey, alpaca,
flannel, novelty woolens and vel-
Draws All Eyes
A frock that will draw all eyes
from notebooks is a wool jersey as
smartly , finished as broadcolth
Sbhiaparelli's influence is shown in
the double pocket blouse, and the
umbrella-tucked skirt is a flatterer
that never sags or loses its shape.
This model may be obtained in a
number of goregous shades-black,
blue, green, bronze, red and gold.
Purple is one of the newer "raves,"
particularly when combined with
metal. One frock in this color com-
bination has a very simple gored
skirt which does not detract from the
brilliant silver metal binding on the
breast pockets. A zipper neck fast-
ener completes the dress. This dress
also comes in that good old standby
Pastel Shades Glow
Pastel shades are adding to the
festive air of the Yuletide season. Of
these, beiges is a strong color. There
is a truly lovely model in natural
cashmere tailored in a coat style
that has notched edge down the front
and on the sleeves. It is fastened by
large wooden buttons that march
straight from neck to hem. Th con-
trasting note is offered in the tailored
belt of blue bengaline.
Another frock comes in chartreuse,
a pastel that does wonders for one's
complexion. This dress introduces
Frisca cloth, that ne wwool shot with
cellophane. A beautiful alligator
belt completes this unusual dress.
South Plaid Accented
Every style-wise co-ed must have
one Scotch plaid dress in her ward-
robe, both for its practicability and
its gaiety. There is a soft red and
black plaid froc kthat is distinguished
by its voluminous pleated skirt and
its novel black leather belt. It has
a round, black velveteen collar and
velveteen trimming on the cuffs and
minute breast pockets. The girl
wearing this dress will turn her back
on her .man yadmirers just to show
them the row of tiny black buttons
down the back.
Routs Exanination Blues
Grand to wear during blue-books
would be an e4hilerating scarlet
jersey frock, with its only trim a
black laquered zipper side fastener.
The sleek straight skirt emphasizes
the softly draped bodice, which is
shirred from the shoulders to the
giddy, high waistline. The smart
simplicity of the dress is further
brought out by the severe V-neckline
and the material belt.
A jacket dress is wonderfully con-
venient-it not only gives one the
appearance of having more outfits
than one actually has, but it also
affords that extra warmth one needs
these shivery days. The frock is one
model is shown in hopsacking, a new
nubby wool, in a brown and aqua
check. It is made in shirtwaist style
with a tie of the material and long
sleeves. A brown jacket is worn over
it. This collarless jacket has tricky
brown and aqua carved buttons, and
two huge stitched breast pockets.
Aids To Writing
Every college woman will welcome
pens, pencils and brief-cases- as
Christmas gifts this year.
Inexpensive pen and pencil sets
are featuring sides of Doric columns
copied from the Grecian column like
those of Angell Hall. Although the pen
and pencil have 12 sides, they have
been designed for perfect balance and
are easily gripped in the hand for
comfortable writing. The gripping
point is perfectly round.
Pyralin is the most popular material
for pens this year. It comes in strik-
ing black and silver stripes, green,
red, black and gray.
One pen with a lifetime guarantee,
features pyralin and a lattice work
design showing a visible ink supply.
An adjustable slide adjusts the pen

Trim For Sports Coats;
Astrakhan For Dress I
By BETTIE HOWARD
Are you planning to ask Dad for a
new cloth coat for Christmas? If so,
perhaps you'd like a yew helpful hints.
A good looking cloth coat is really'
essential for a busy campus goer.
Even if you possess a fur coat, it is'
wise to have a cloth coat for warmer
days and to save wear and tear on
your fur coat. And if you don't own:
a fur coat, then of course you must
have an exceptional cloth coat.
There are two types of cloth coats,
fur-trimmed and Untrimmed. So
you must decide which will best suitI
your purposes. If you have a furI
coat, you are prepared for dressy oc-
casions and what you need is a sport,
coat. Untrimmed coats are best forI
this purpose and are not as expensive.
Reefer Coats Smart
Reefer coats are the newest things'
in sport models this season. These
come in smart diagonal tweeds and in
plain colors. Camel's hair coats are
always popular. Black in this fabric,
is one of the winter's outstanding
There are also very sporty coats
with fur trim. These are usually
swagger coats with a large, long
haired fur. A local shop, shows a coat
of this type in multi-colored plaid
with polar wolf collar. Another smart
sport coat is of black camel's hair
with a flattering collar of natural
white wolf which is striking against
the black. Wolf and raccoon are the
most popular furs for these sporty
Dress Coats Require Fur
But ,if it's a dressy coat you need,
then it should be fur trimmed and
the trimming should be real fur for
a good quality. Otherwise, it will
wear out rapidly and look shabby be-
fore you are ready to discard the
One good looking dress coat shown
in a campus shop is of diagonal tweed
and has patch pockets. The collar is
of bleached skunk. Another in the
same shop is a fitted three-quarter,
length coat which buttons up tightly
and is trimmed with astrakhan. It has
a hat to match.
Season's Furs Elaborate
Fur is being used more elaborately
this year than it has been in more
recent years. Whole sleeves made of
fur are very good, especially when
made of a sleek, flat fur such as
caracul. Fur collars continuing into
full-length fur lapels are also very
popular. One such coat is of tweedt
and the collar and lapels are of polar;
A perennial favorite is a coat of
natural or tan camel's hair with at
smooth beaver trim, Because of its
long wearing quality, beaver makes
one of the best furs for trimming pur-

Books Are Happy Solution
For Those Individuals

It happens every year that there i
,are problem people on everyone's l
Christmas list, people who either have v
everything or whose tastes are mys-c
teriously unknown. For such, books r.
are the happy solution. s
There is no other gift which is sos
universal or so adaptable to different
personalities as a book. One mays

the sophisticated roommate with any-a
thing from a best seller to a volume of
'Northwest Passage' Tops 1
In the realm of best sellers, therec
are three which are now at the topf
of the nation's favorites in fiction--
"Northwest Passage" by Kenneth
Roberts, "And So - Victoria" by
Vaughan Wilkins and A. J. Cronin's
In the non-fiction group are "How
to Win Friends and Influence People"
by Dale Carnegie and its aftermath,
Irving Tressler's "How to Lose Friends
and Alienate People," "Life With
Mother,"' by Clarence Day and "Or-
chids on Your Budget" by Marjorie
Hillis, sequel to the very successful
"Live Alone and Like It."
Hemingway Suited To Men
As a book is one Christmas present
a man really will use, there are some
books more particularly suited to the
men on your list. Ernest Heming-
way, for instance, has written a new
novel of the island region off Florida
and Cuba in "To Have and Have Not."
If the lucky man has read "Invasion,"
he will probably enjoy "Hath Not the
Potter" by the same author, Maxence
Van der Meersch.
Particularly appropriate for the
gift-giving season is Lloyd Douglas'
new book "Home for Christmas." It
tells the story of an adult family who
returns home for the holidays to re-
capture the Christmas spirit. Two
other very suitable books for this time
of year are "1001 Christmas Facts and
Fancies" by Alfred Haltes and "Merry
Christmas" by Mary Ellen Chase.
For non-fiction lovers, a timely book
would be "Japan Over Asia" by Wil-
liam Henry Chamberlin. It is a news-
paper correspondent's account of the
Japanese nation, its culture, aims and
psychology. "You Have Seen Their
Faces," a book ofnthe Southern share
cropper, has been compiled by Ers-
kine Caldwell and Margaret Bourke-
White, the famous photographer.
Your roommate would probably be
happy to know that Margaret Fish-
back has published another collection
of her effervescent poems, called "One
to a Customer." If the impressive
gift cellophane and boxing doesn't
deter you, you may have time to read
it before Christmas rolls around. Then
too, there is "Martingale," the story
of a horse who is pictured in typical
scenes of a debtuante's life. This
amazing theme is profusely illustrated
with horsey versions of well-known
Very probably the family would ap-
preciate your giving your smaller
brothers and sisters something other
