For Dress, Sport Wear
With the beginning of classes comes
another problem for the freshman
women, a problem eyen greater than
registration and knowing which is,
the museum and which the health
service, namely rushing.
Teas and dinners and then more
dinners and the question is, what to;
wear? Don't let it awe you for the
answer is really very simple. For the
first initial teas, Saturday, every
thing is casual. Spectator sport
clothes predominate. Ideal for that
teal would be a tailored sport dress
of wool, with coarse tucks on the
shoulders and broad pleats that are
stitched to six inches below the hips
but flare out from there and give
freedom for that campus stride you
will soon acquire. This dress would
be smart in black with buttons and
belt of plum or shudder green. A
dressy sport hat, without the veil
would be in good taste and would
look smooth in black or plum with
shoes to match.
Tailored suits are also in good
taste for this first tea, with dressy
oxfords and contrasting accessories.
Zippers are still very much the rage
and would look well on a light weight
wool dress with short sleeves, .puffed
up rather than out. The entire dress
is ribbed and would lend height. It has
a tailored collar and a black patent
leather belt to contrast with the teal

blue material. The zipper is gold and
ends with three gold flowers at the
neck. Spectator sport suede shoes in
black would look well with this dress
and would match the perky tricon
hat that sits over one eye at a rakish
angle.
Don't wear sweater and skirt to this
first tea and don't wear saddle shoes,
no matter how clean they are, and
don't let them stay clean for long
if you expect to rate in Ann Arbor.
Enough of the don'ts.
For the Sunday teas be a little more
on the dressy side. Veiled hats are
fine and dressy suede or kid shoes
will look well. One of the latest shoes
this season is the suede lastex pump
in black and all the new fall colors.
Leave your pig skin gloves at home
and don the extra special kid for this
is the time when you must shine.
As far as dresses go, the Sunday
teas demand the same as do the rush-
ing dinners that will follow. Stay
away from tailored clothes. Velvet,
dressy wools, crepe, silks, and vel-
veteen are the latest and will add
that touch of charm so needed at
this time. A perfect dress for Sun-
day and the rushing dinners would be
a mossy rayon crepe with short
sleeves puffed up rather than out. It
is shirred in the front from the high
neck to the broad waist band. At the
neck and waist are two gold fig leaf
clips that brighten it up and give a
touch of the feminine to the full
skirt.
The versatility of velveteen makes
it ideal for rushing. One particular
dress in mind is collarless and is cut
on princess lines with a flaired skirt.
It has lingerie trim tucked cozily
between a double row of velveteen
buttons that reach from the neck to
the hem. The sleeves are short and
are set off by the same lingerie trim.
This dress would look well in black
