New Flannel Housecoais
Prove Practical, leer=n
By DORIS BROWNI
You will long cherish one of the
new housecoats as a Christmas gift
this year. Many smart new materials
are being used. Angora, which is very
good for campus wear all the day
long, is also being used for trimming
robes. We noticed a fitted white one
with a tiny patch pocket just below
the waist line edged with maroon
For really practical use a Botany
flannel robe in red, trimmed with
multicolored fringe, will keep you
warm these snowy nights. Another
flannel housecoat is pale blue with
a crimson velvet collar, or perhaps
you would prefer a robe of billiard
table felt with a Talon fastener from
collar to hem. ,
Individualists should see the fitted
robe which has equal charm for
traveling, college, or at home. It has
your own initials snapped into the
button which will close the front
tightly to the neck or can be left un-
done, forming large revers. The rich
two-toned sash repeats the color of
the button and adds to the luxury of

Bed jackets for those few who have

this season. We noticed some of white

Gift Question Solved
It's Christmas time and we sup-
pose you all have the spirit of giving.
But there's always a question con-
cerned with giving, and that is what
Linen handkerchiefs with flannel
patterns are a good answer. A lady
looking through a lorgnette adorns
one while another has a girl strug-
gling over a golf game.
Chiffon handkerchiefs with em-
broidered corners are quite versatile
as they can be worn either for eve-
ning as kereiieves with your sweat-
ers. Thn, too, if the wind should
start to blow your new "hair-do" you
can even tie it around your head.
Christmas Cheer Is Suggested
By New A merican Perfumes
Of Famous Creators
The Christmas holidays always
bring forth a flood of intriguing new'
perfumes in tempting and decorative
little bottles. The American per-
fumers have produced some of the
Imost subtle and delightful new whifs
this year that equal or even surpass
in some opinions, those of the French.
Harriet Hubbard Ayer is a leader
among these with her new Yu. Yu
is a festive new perfume just suited
for the vacation parties and makes
a gift that is a compliment to the re-
ceiver and a symbol of the good taste
of the donor. Yu has been made in-
to a light, refreshing toilet water, and
bath powder to make the perfect set.
Twin Set Is Attractive
Another New York creator, Helena
Rubenstein has brought out her new
Town and Country duet in a set of
two tiny bottles attractively pack-
aged in a little cellophane box. The
former of these twins is a rather
heavy, sophisticated odor while the
Country twin is light and carefree.
Lavin, the noted French perfumer
has put out a very unusual holiday
package of his four best-known crea-
tions to suit any mood and occasion.
The most distinguished is the most
subtle of the odors: My Sin. Then
there is the daring one Rumeur, and
Pretexte is the third. it is light and
refreshing to contrast to the fourth,
Scandal which is a rather heavy, al-
most oriental scent vaguely sugges-
tive of the Near East.
Emerand And L'Aim,*nt
Mr. Coty has brought out a set in
his inimitable Emerand that consists
of the perfume, a very fine bath talc,
toilet water and face powder all in
that wonderful whif that might well
be called the smell of smells. His'
clinging triumph for the great mom-
ents in one's life is his L'Aimant with
L'Origan to supplement it in a high-
er holiday odor.
In the same Christmas spirit comes
Lentheric's Miracle which is the ideal
all-around perfume. Lentheric's

For chic smartness every authority

Crepe de Chine. It makes a flawless
gift and perfect for tea dances and
smart, informal dinners.
Something new in the perfume line
has been put on the market by Orloff
and is seen in his dainty hand-paint-
ed packs that contain concentrates in
a variety of smells that will not leak
or evaporate and which will go won-
3derfully in even a small sized purse.

with A La Concarde de France; a re-

Mittens are a campus indispehs-
able. They are the one sure way of
keeping fingers warm these sparkling
winter days. They are a wise choice
for a Christmas gift, too.
Angora mittens in soft pastel
shades and snowy white are worn
for dress and formal occasions: Their

idea 'for skiing. They have tight
bands at the cuffs to keep stray

Sweaters are always a popular gift for the college miss for she can
never get too many of them. Pull-overs, cardigans, peasant, just any
kind of a sweater, is sure to meeo with her approval, but especially the
soft angoras and the cardigan-pull-over sets. They come in all colors
and thus will match any outfit desired. The waist-line length sweater is
being shown a lot this season. It has a lastex band which ensures it
against slippilng up unawares. So you see, you really can't miss if you
get her a sweater.
