Attractive Kits
Now .Provided
.For cosmetics
Two cosmetic problems face.-the
University student, and both have
been solved by manufacturers of
facial helpers. The traveling lady
no longer has to worry about a con-
venient carry-all for bottles and jars
and the woman of few spare mo-
ments can now- find adequate time
for her beautifying treatments.
For the first mentioned problemt'
child have been developed several
styles of overnight cases. Of beau-
tiful alligator, pigskin, or simulated
soap-toothbrush-colderea n sizes to
grains, these models range from
those that will accommodate slip-
pers and housecoat.
Lunch Box Convenient
One particular style, built in the
proportions of a laborer's lunch box,
has' a handle at the top for conveni-
ent portage. The tray of this piece
of luggage is fitted with innumer-
able and. varied sized bottles and jars.
These are. suitable for carrying
powder, -creams,_ lotions, and mani-
cure,;articles. The lower portion
provides ample space for pajamas,
change of blouse, or even a srmall hat.
Kit Has Many Asets
Other ┬░cases, put out by promoters
of various brands of cosmetics, come
already equipped with the necessary
creams. Every necessity for beauty
repair on a short trip is concluded in
'these compact grips. Most are made
so that re-fills can be purchased to
replenish a kit that is still in good
All-purpose creams and "one-treat-
ment" cosmetics solve the problem
of how to "keep face" in record
time. Just a dab before retiring,
and a normal complexion can be kept
in shape indefinitely. Pure soaps, in
a variety of scents, form the basis
for this short but comprhensive sys-
Carriage Boots Guard
Against Wintry Blasts
It is a rather unpleasant thought,
we will admit, but has it yet oc-
curred to you that w~.inter is almost
here, and that with winter comes
snow and with snow come carriage
boots (galsohes if you prefer)? They
are, really essential, whatever you
privately think of them.
For just plain everyday, class to
class wear, we suggest rubber. They
are very practical and, 'if you insist
upon diversion, fur tops can be pro-
vided. Zippers, the answer to all
sorts of prayers, make them con-
venient for the taking off, putting on
Velvet of course for dressy wear,
in .all colors-well, black, brown and
white, anyway. These sort of make
you unafraid to wear this protection.

Red Wagon Blues Will Vanisl
As Johnny Sees Toy Li




Johnny, wanted a little red wagon.
He had always wanted a little red
~wagon. But Johnny's parents, who
were only moderately; well off, al-
ways thought that warm things for
winter were more to the point than
~little *red wagons.
But Johnny still wanted one. The-
other day, one of Johnny's pals' told'
him about a place where you could'
"draw out" all sorts of toys, just like,
you could books from a library.?
When he got there, there stood his.
little red wagon just waiting for'
him. Now it's his for ten days and
if he wants 'to, he can renew it.'Jhn ie h da
Starting from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30'
p.m. at Perry School today, a newly'
established toy-lending library will
be open to all children in that
school distri'ct.' Toys may be
"drawn out" at this time any Mon-
day or Wednesday from now on. in
two or three weeks a branch library
will be opened at Donavan School
on -the west side of the city.
Last year the library was under
the guidance of the Ann Arbor Chil-
dren's Service :Bureau at Perry Cen-

ter', but this year the Student
ligious Association has taken the x
jlect over. As in a book-lending
brary, the children may keep
playthings for 10 days and then e:
er exchange or renew them.'
committee hopes that the idea
become city-wide, according to Fr

dents or townspeople will be
comed," stated Miss Johnson. "P:
