For Gay,

Waterproof Snow Suits

I' T Togs

New Boy Blue
Suit Is Made
Of Gabardine
Flared Velveteen Skatinor
Skirt, Ice-Blue Bolero
Make Attractive Outfit
"Tis the season to be jolly" and to
indulge in winter sports ,so what
could be more appropriate as a gift
for the wardrobe-minded miss than
a gay snow suit for cutting winter
These suits are very attractive this
season. In bright colors, they add
vividness to the art of skiing, or if
you haven't any art, they are made
of practical heavy wool which will
readily withstand your tosses and
Red Colorful 'On Snow

Gay Plumage For Young


Disgusted Male Voices Frank
Opinion Of Hoop Skirt Fashiona

Capeskin Belts
Worn On Furs


Bright red suits are especially pop-
ular and make a colorful appearance
against the snow. They are water-
proof and guarantee that the snow
won't seep in. One like this is two-
pieced and zips down the front. The
jacket has two large pockets, a
turned down collar and is fitted. The
trouser legs fit close to your ankles
and lots of warm things under-
and are so full that you can wear lots
The very latest thing is the boy
blue" gabardine suspender suit. The
very tailored shirt tucks into high
waisted trousers. The shirt has two
tiny pockets, is collarless and has
silver coin buttons, both down the
front and on the cuffs of the long
sleeves. And just in case you think
you might not be warm enough, you
can buy some of the "new" red flan-
nels to wear underneath. Either
yellow or accessories with your suits
will make you very smartly clad. for
your- winter season.
Jackets Vary Ensembles
Then, too, you can buy the ski
pants separately and wear them with
numerous jackets. Forest - green
pants with the new lamb's woll jack-
ets make a striking outfit. These
jackets are very chunky, warm and
are natural-colored. Leatherbut-
tons are the only trimming and it
is collarless, so you can wear colored
scarves to keep your neck warm.
Unusual is the Bradley creation in
dubonnet with light blue trimmings.
The jacket is fitted and has a zipper
from the shoulder to the neckline.
You can either wear the collar, which
light blue, zipped up as a turle neck
or turned down. There are blue in-
serts in the sides of the jacket and
the belt is dubonnet with aslight
trimming of the blue. The little cap
to be worn with the outfit is also of
light blue.
Corduroy is a suitable material for
your snow apparel. These suits come
in all colors, blue, red, green, brown,
gray and black. The jackets are fit-
ted, have turned down collars, and
either button or zip down the front.
The trousers are fitted too and zip
in the plackets.
Velveteen For Skating
If you. like cutting figure 8's on
skates and all those fancy things on
ice you'lltlike the new dress designed
for just that purpose. A two-pieced
velveteen with suede trimming will
improve your skating no end. For
instance, the short flared skirt will
give you lotsdof room cutting pi-
tures. It is deep red and the short
bolero jacket is of light blue suede.
A suede cap with a deep red feather
adds the finishing touch.
And so you see there's no end to
the colorful and clever snow suits
this season, and what with all the
sleighing parties, skiing, ice skating
and tobaggoning planned here in
Ann Arbor, we know that no Christ-
mas gift will be appreciated more.
So just suggest to your family that
this is your choice and you will be
sure to have a very merry Christmas
and a happy snow year.
Practical Bookends
Please Roosmnmates
For a roommate who leaves books
straggling all over the desk, the ideal
gift is a pair of bookends. They add
much to the appearance, as well as
the neatness, of the room.
For the loyal student who cheers
with gusto at games throughout the
year and speaks of Michigan with a
glow of pride, there are wooden Book-
ends with the Michigan seal in metal
on each one. They are especially A
nice for a girl who has just .started
in college, and can keep them for her
'remaining years.

Back in the interim when women'
did not bedeck their "twinkling"
ankles ,with portable bird cages and
mouse traps, life at Michigan was
worth the while. You could go to the
Soph Prom or the Panhel (preferably
the latter) without worrying about;
having to take lessons on how to
maneuver a trailer truck or a date
with a hoop skirt. The memories of
those days are pretty much like the
beautiful dreams I used to have be-
fore I took to eating cheese and
crackers before retiring.
I will remember the first time I
bumped into a hoop skirt (and here
"skirt" means the garment, not the
wearer). It had been a beautiful day, ,
just like before the hurricane from
the picture by the same name. So I
had not bothered to get a taxi. Catch
on? With a light heart and an equal-i
ly light wallet, I tripped up the walk
to our lady fair. As per usual, I
opened the door before entering. And
then it happened. She was waiting
for me. She could not wait to see
my reaction.
Stupification Followed
Just like the blind man who firstl
came in contact with the elephant,'
I did not know whether it was like a
tree, a snake or a house.. It stupified
me-or should I have said stymied?
I did not know what to do. But I
think the thing that got me was when
she hinted to me-oh, so coyly-but,
oh, so effectively-that because her
skirt was hooped we would have to
take a taxi, don't you know.
We men have to understand that
there are times when we have to re-
sort to taxis, as when it rains, so I did
not mind even that too much-then.
But we men also understand that
there should be some increment for
the expense involved. So I was a bit
put out when I found that in order
for her to get her whole hoop skirt in,
I would have to dangle my feet out
the door or sit up in frnt. Then and
there I cursed the hoop skirt as being
an infernal successor to the cigarette.
Mob Scene Begins
But that was just the 0eginning of
my woe. After doffing my coat at
the check room, I took up that eter-
nal wait in front of the door which
has printed in small type on its face,
"Women.." Twice the usual procras-
tination ensued before my lady fair-
to midlin' now-traipsed out. Then
came the mob scene. Every. female
in the place had to come up to her(
and see her new gown. I could not
get within 20 feet of her. So I joined

red mittens, socks and scarf to add a contrasting note. The matching
hat of navy blue is lined back in red to match the accessories. The
jacket is cut to allow for plenty of action. Large flap pockets promise
to keep all that lies within them away from the snow and ice. Heavy
ski boots complete the outfit. They are usually made of waterproof
cowhide and are large enough to allow for the wooly socks which are
worn with them.

New Sleeping Togs
Combine Gay Dots,
Peter-Pan Collars
It may be just a personal exper-
ience, but it seems to us that these
eight o'clocks are getting harder and
harder to cope with. The combina-
tion of a gray day, a cold rgom, and
a sleeping roommate simply does vot
arouse the old vim and vigour, and
any intellectual fires that are still
burning have become slightly dam-
pened in the process. The one bright
spot on this otherwise chilling hori-
zon arises in the tempting share of a
pair of woolly, Dr. Denton pajamas.
A very new development has re-
sulted in the creation of pajamas to
fit the personality, as well as any in-
cidental whims in col'or combinations.
For the sweet-a- :-unsophisticateds,
Dr. Denton recommen ds sleep-togs in
pasteldshades of blue, wviite, or pink,
topped off by a demure peter-pan
collar. While man-tailored styles,
with fuzzy belts and pleated waist-
lines, in solid or contrasting color;,
will make the eyebrow lifting gals
think they're in another world. Per-
fect for house-meetings or bull-ses-
sions are the new polka-dotted, or



animal-spotted comfies which can be
matched with woolly bed socks, too.
And don't be selfish; buy your friends
a pair for Christmas, too.
buckles are very good for sweaters
and sports dresses, as are narrow
belts of alligator. Then, too, for the
same purpose are peasant belts which
are wider and are embroidered in
various designs.
Gabardine is being used in belts.
One trimmed in kelly green is strik-
ing and would give a lot of "ga" to
your sport dress.
There are belts of all kinds, sizes
and description and there are many
from which to choose. 'They would be
very welcome gifts come Christmas-
time for the girl who likes a versa-
tile wardrobe.
