College Man Issues Ultimatum
In War On Women's Fashions

By JOE COLLEGE
So they're going back to the hour
glass figure! Fashion is indeed
spinach, but what else can one ex-
pect from the incomprehensible logic
of the feminine mind. For years
the fairer sex has endured seven
kinds of torture to achieve the girlish
figure until the "femme fatale"
looked like something by Petty.
But now fashion decrees wasp-
waists and wasp-waists it is. Ah
well, perhaps they won't catch. Thank
God, hoops didn't.
On the other hand, women can be
very practical indeed, as witness the
babushka, which is probably the best
use bandannas have been put to ex-
cept for those interesting beach halt-
ers.
Sweaters?-But, Definitely!
They say sweaters are comfortable
too. At least they look comfortable,

so we'll give them a vote, reserving
opinion on angoras to avoid censor-
ship.
In England the younger set is nuts
about hiking and maybe we'll soon be
able to take up this sport without
too much bother. For what could be
handier than to pack a lunch in one
of those simply divine knapsacks
with long straps that some enter-
prising soul put on the market as
purse wear?
Shoes leap from one extreme to the
other. Bits of two by fours fastened
to the foot with leather straps, and
presto-you have sandals. Or the old
stand-by, saddle shoes, a steal from
men. Of course, the toeless slipper
hangs on, and heaven only knows
how!
The Pedant Speaks
Some learned pedant once re-
marked that improper footwear af-
fected the eyesight but he didn't say
why faulty shoes made women wear
those pince-nez on a chain. A man
probably invented those, too.
The ideal Michigan girl, according
to an informal canvass conducted by
the SPCA, should have in her ward-
robe at least two dirndls, preferably
with large wide stripes of orange and
black; four hats, designed to make
the face appear long and haggard, in
keeping with Michigan tradition; six
pounds of assorted junk to be used
at random for decorative purposes; a
raincoat, either green or purple; a
pair of rubber boots, size 10; three
kinds of glamour paint, one each for
morning, afternoon and evening; and
finally, the clothes that one would
wear at home.

Bright Plaids,
Simple Styles
Are Favorites
'Sloppy-Joe's,' Cardigans,
Are Still Popular College
Modes; Anklets Match
By MARY HELEN DAVIS
More than ever before the num-
erous bright colors of fall will be in-
cluded in the fashion landscape for
both on and off campus wear this
season. The college woman's peren-
nial cry for simplicity has been
answered in full by the designers of
our clothes. Even date dresses are
cut on the most simple lines possible
and are made in brilliant hues.
Although the more prominent
Paris stylists are showing all sorts
of draped, shirred and bustled models,
the modern co-ed still clings to the
little girl simplicity that has. long
been close to her heart. Smocking,
too, is one of the season's latest
touches for the collegiate date-dress
and embodies all the youthful spirit
of its wearer.
'Sloppy-Joe' Styles Popular
The nation-wide campus outfit,
the sweater, skirt and suit team, has
such a multitude of variations this
season that the possibilitie sare end-
less. Cardigan and slip-over sweat-
ers in the "sloppy-joe" styles are the
most easily cared for and most casual
sort that we all adore.
Cardigans with plaid ribbon trim
to match your pet skirt are a novelty
of the season that have caught hold
rapidly. Soft cashmere that incor-
porates the tones in a strictly tailored
tweed suit makes the ideal costume
for classes and football games. And
speaking of tweeds, it might be well
to get an angora sweater made of a
tweedy looking yarn with all the
colors of your suit in it.
Plaids Are Prominent
This matter of plaids has been
constantly before our eyes for the
past few weeks and deserves careful
attention as they are very definitely
the best thing of the season. A plaid
suit that incorporates most of the
colors of your wardrobe will be a
heaven-sent blessing to every woman
this year. When mixed with plain
flannel skirts or jacets, several dis-
tinct different costumes that Will be
a help to the budget.
The eastern colleges started a
craze for bright flannel shirts with
severely man-tailored lines last year
that promises to gan great popular-
ity here. When worn with either
plaid skirts or plain flannel they are
the most comfortable apparel for
long hours in the library. Fireman
red or yellow make a stunning match
for your, red, blue and yellow plaid
skirt.
Jersey Shirts Are Favored
Printed shirts of baby soft jersey
make a good match to wear with a
dark town suit of herring-bone weave
and if you are the sort of person
who loves to change into slacks for
evenings in the dorm there could be
nothing better. Under many of the
simpler slipover sweaters and under
cardigans there is nothing that makes
one feel better than a crisp white
skirt. It has become quite a custom
here at Michigan.
There are two new trends in suits
for this fall and winter. First the
skirt sare very full, a bit shorter and
definitely flared while their jackets
have grown, longer to harmonize with

Ji

the added length of your cardigans.
For a tailored suit there could be
nothing better than a soft wool herr-
ing-bone skirt with a collarless jacket
of a contrasting color bound in the
color of the skirt. The snug high
neck-line of the jacket makes it adap-
table for both sweaters and ascot
scarves or even with a chunky strand
of pearls.
Pin Stripes Are New
Pin stripe sare another adaptable
weave in flannels this year and may
be obtained in two piece dresses so
that the flared skirt with a narrow
leather belt may be worn with plain
flannel shirts of a different hue.
Corduroy in vivid new colors that
have all the zest of fall weather in
them is being shown in several styles
of sports wear that will delight any
woman because of its comfort and
washability. Little girl jumpers are
new and smart and are at their best
under casual sports coats.
Suits of sea-green or teal blue
corduroy are a boon for these semi-
cool fall days when its always a prob-

Suede Jerkins Popular

nor too cool. Box and butcher-boy
jackets of a brilliant corduroy with
plaid linings and detachable hoods
make an ideal sports jacket for classes
and rig games.
A semi-dress costume of bunny soft
mustard cashmere wool is unusual
with itsconcealed full length zipper
down the front and a narrow leather
belt goes into the making of a hit
dress of the season. The sleeves are
three-quarter length and hang loosely
from padded shoulders.

Everything in line of perma-
nents, finger waves,. mani-
cures, and facials at prices
you can pay. The service and

faction.

Grey Wools Lead Parade
Sheer grey wool made into a tail-
ored dress finds the concealed zipped-
up front with us again. The most
appealing feature of it is a krimmer
trimmed detachable hood that hangs
loosely down the back and gives the
dress a luxurious note. Loose three-
quarter length sleeves are designed
to give grace and comfort to the
wearer.
Another light weight grey wool
has tiny flashing paillets on the snug
little collar and over the skirt which
is full and flared. Pin striped flan-
nel dresses are being shown with un-
usual fullness in both the back and
front and are belted with wide leath-
er girdle of brightly contrasting color
to the dress.
Jersey shirt-waist dresses with nar-
row leather belts are on display in
such exciting new shades as maple
sugar, bacchus grape, silvery green
and sea foam. There could be noth-
ing better than this dress to wear
under a bright new reversible coat
or a corduroy jacket.
One of the hit dresses of the seasoni
is a black jersey dress that has tiny
crystal buttons marching down the
back. The distinctive features of this
simple tailored dress are the vivid
Mexican patterns embroidered on the
sleeves and front in a heavy yarn
that adds color and zest to its ap-
pearance.
The trend in date dresses is to have
them as a back-ground for our heavy
new jewelry. As a winter favorite,
velvet is with us again in smocked
and-shirred models that have a for-
tunate way of hiding figure defects.
Velveteen for skirts and trim dinner
suits are being shown this season in
all, of the newest shades to delight
your heart.
A dead black dress of crepe may be
worn alone with your largest jewels
at the' throat or with its sea-foam
blue velvet jacket for those special
occasions when something extra is
