Compact Trend
Is Toward Art,
Not Usefulness
Different Types Serve For
Every Occasion During
Day AridNight Life
By PENELOPE PATTERSON
There's always something new un-
der the sun when it c.omes to com-
pacts. Each year they become less
of a untility and more of a work of
art.
There are compacts for every occa-
sion. For those glamorous night,
look at those white enameled com-
pacts, covered with gold leaves, whose
sterns and veins are delicately col-
ored lines. Then there is a black
enamel compact with a sparkling
friezework of rhinestones for other
festive occasions. The peacock, sym-
bolizing vanity, most appropriately
spreads its multi-colored tail over
the surface of another dull gold van-
ity. The peacock is hand painted and
on its tail are many tiny dots of glow-
ing color.
A dull metal-gray compact with
small gold initials in the center is
more conservative and will go with
every color and ensemble.
In keeping with the bustle and
Victorian motif are the round fluted
snuffbox vanities. A small black one
with tiny painted flowers on the
edge seemed to represent all the
glory and prudery of the Victorian
age. These snuffboxes come in all
shades, plain or decorated, and con-
tain powder only.
Every year more startling and nov-
el compacts come out. Fo: more in-
formal occasions, there is a light
wooden compact, with a modernistic
face of a girl on the cover. The face
is made by squares of darker. wood.
For the gray winter months, there is
a wine-colored compact with a light-
blue donkey pulling a cart of flow-

Brooks Sweaters
Give ophistication
To Every Woman
(Continued from Page 1)
sweater is the pride and joy of every
woman who owns once. Its fine, dur-
able quality and itspattern have been
imitated everywhere, but the wool
has never been equaled,.nor have the
unique lines of the original Brooks
been truly copied.
Distinguished By Long Wiastline.
The long box waistline, the snugly
fitting ribbing; around the neck, and
the long, roomy sleeves do a great deal
to distinguish this sweater from all
others. Howeveir, the fabri and the
weave also contribute in giving-this
classicits aristocratic air. The Brooks
worn with a string of pearls and with
sleeves, either down or pushed up to
or above the elbow is the height of
fashion.-

Variety Shown
In This Year's
StyleInShoes
In the good old days even the lady
with an elegant wardrobe had no
more than two or three pairs of good
stout shoes. They used to say that
"gloves mark the lady." But with
the advent of short skirts more and
more attention has been paid to
shoes, and now there is a tendency to
think that "shoes mark the lady."
This year's fashions in shoes are
wide in range. For daytime wear on
the college campus saddle shoes still
top the list, and the square-toed
"barge" is still much in evidence.
'Thick crepe soles are very much "in;"
and the crepe-soled suede shoes of
various colors to match your costume
are a change from thesaddle shoes.
A variation of this suede shoe is the
sabot type, which gives the impres-
sion of a pump, but lets you hurry
from class to class in flat heeled
comfort.
High heels are being worn not only
tordress-up affairs, but to classes this
year where they were worn not near-
ly so much last year. The classic
spectator pumps are still the favorite,
but there is almost, endless variety
of styles to choose from beside. The
sabot motif is carried out inseveral
attractive types of pumps. Suede
pumps with alligator trim, are smart,
and toeless suede pumps are here,
even with the nippy weather. Defin-
itely different are the several adap-
tations of .the old-fashioned buttoned
boots designed with an eye to keep-
ing your old-fashioned hats com-
pany.
Evening shoes, theever-fascinating,
are mostly of the classic sandal type,
in gold or silver. Toeless sandals
with strap heels are pretty, and make
feet seem smaller. Sandals j of fine
mesh give that desirable dainty look.
Not so commonly seen, but up and
coming, are evening pumps with a
satin finish dyed to match your for-
mal or to contrast with it.
Smart shoes are rapidly taking as
important a place in the well-dressed
woman's wardrobe as hats or bags or
even gowns, and they are just as much
fun to choose.

smart on the campus, and is found
to be very practical. In the first place,
there are two sweaters. One is a slip-
over and the other a cardigan. In
the second place, they can be worn
together or separately.~ They come
in one color or in contrasting shades
or colors.
Cardigan Most Popular
There are numerous other kinds of
sweaters, but it appears that the most
popular style is the long-waisted, long
sleeved slip-over or cardigan.
A handy trick of the sweater trade
is to put a cardigan on batkward so
that it buttons up the back. Any
kind of costume jewelry as well as the
traditional. pearls are worn with
sweaters; Blouses with plain or lace
collars and kerchiefs add smartness to
the usual 'plain neckline of the be-
loved -sweater.
