GayCombinations Give Variety
Of Ways To Season Wardrobe

VIV, t'!


"How to win friends and influence
people" ought to be an easy task this
spring, if you season your wardrobe
well with all the gay, exciting colors
and take advantage of the novelty and
classic combinations the designers
have created.
For those with more taste than
money, gingham town suits are very
new, and most practical, too. They
look like shepherd-checked wool, and
won't tell a soul how many times
they've been laundered.
Striped Scarf Used As Wrap
One of the most attractive ideas
to come forth in the formal line is
that of using a scarf for a wrap. A
floating, striped chiffon one, pinned
to the head with one of those new,
strong-minded combs and then wound
around the shoulders, has been used
to create that fragile, compelling
If. you're planning on rejuvenat-
ing your last season's dark dress, try
freshening it with a white vestee in
the neckline. Later on, you can re-
move the vestee, and fill the low neck
with masses of beads.
Evening Coat Made Of Faille
You'll be a dream walking, when
you turn out in a new, stately 18th
century'°evening coat of mauve-pinkf
faille. It has a sung buttoned bodice,
a full skirt, and three-tier sadd'le-bag
pockets over the hips, and is the cor-
rect solution to the wrap for your
full-skirted evening dress.
Romany themes are among the
more prominent motifs for formal
wear this spring. One Paris model
consists of a bodice of peasant lace,
a swirling taffeta flounce, and the
whole thing covered in white net.
Heavy, colorful jewelry will complete
the effect. .
Two fish-net scarfs, fastened by
a huge, gilt hairpin, can create devas-
tating charm, if draped around the
head correctly. For tips on draping,
watch Hedy Lamarr.
The bonnet brigade-which is still

holding forth this spring-has added
a clever note to many of its creations.
One of the most popular is an un-
trimmed, flat-crowned straw bonnet
worn with assorted veils and scarfs
which wind over the crown and tie in
a bow under your chin.
April 'Phoo Phrolic'
Attracts 500 Guests
In League Yesterday

Scherger's music at the "Phapril
Phool's Phrolic" which was held from

hellenic Association.

number was presented by Barbara
Telling, '40, Erwin Scherdt,'39SM,
and Chan Pinney, '40E, called ",A
Triple Alliance," in which Miss Tell-
ing sang a blues song, Scherdt, a
classic, and Pinney, sweet swing. Ruth
Enss, '42SM, sang a duet with Scherdt.
Donna Baisch, '42SM, accompanied
the singers.

mon, '41, attended the dance in

Dick, '40, were prominent members

gress and Panhellenic Association un-
der the co-chairmen, Ella Stowe, '40,
and Winston Cox, '42. The committee
