Velvet has come into its own in a
flared rayon velvet skirt for that fun-
damental dress which lends itself to
much adaptation. With a suavely
draped blouse, it is perfect for after
5 p.m.; while the same dress, with a
simple rayon crepe top, is grand to
set off accessories for daytime wear.
For sipping cocktails at the Motor
Bar, there is a smart rayon crepe
with unpressed pleats all the way
around, with wide waistband and
jewelled accents for that general
"soignee" look. Huge bows bedeck-

rent novelty, with some in back as a,

waist, especially in a restrained crepe
For the less dressy occasion, a most
versatile, infallibly "right" dress is a

wool gabardine, with shiny metal but-
tons and leather belt.

cover, all complete in a case of red
Music boxes in the form of cig-
arette boxes are also a novelty. The
one I saw was wooden, and very nice.
I saw another music box at the same
store--this one though, was for the
pure unadulterated purpose its name
declares. It played four tunes, oper-
atic arias, and was very pleasant
to listen to. (I think I annoyed the
proprietor, by playing it so much.)
This box was also made of wood, and
imported from Switzerland.
Jewel cases are another item which
does not immediately come to mind
when one is out looking for gifts,
but I saw some honeys. They range
in size, color, and correspondingly
in price, but they all were trimmed
in gold, had two layers, and a special
Ah, knitting bags. No, don't laugh.
I saw some that were distinctly dif-
ferent, and would be welcomed most
heartily by confirmed knitters who
are tiring of the "same old bag."
These were of two types, one an all
over' embroidered peacock design, the
other with a distinctly Tyrolean at-
mosphere-felt Tyrolean figures, be-
ing prominently featured. The bags
had room galore.
Ann Arbor's climate being so def-
initely indefinite, umbrellas are an
important item here. There was one,
a silk, with navy and white check,
which was very reminiscent of "Ye
Olde Fashioned Umbrella", a mod-
ern version, of course. A second pret-
ty one displayed the "Chamberlain"
handle, and was a very lovely rust,
moss green and brown plaid. The
third outstanding one was part silk,
part oilskin, a black and white print,
with a detachable handle for packing
A gold leatherette manicure case
was, something else over which I
could wax enthusiastic for hours.
This set comes in varying sizes and
prices, too, and is completely fitted
with gold implements. The entire
outfit is very rich looking, and the
recipient's name or initials may be
engraved in the gold side casing.
Other attractive sets were cased in
pigskin, and one featured a combin-
ation .manicure set and jewel case.
I haven't even begun on jewelry,
compacts, lingerie, perfume, mittens,
socks, sweaters, purses, bookends, sa-
chets, and all the thousand and one
little things one discovers on a spree
like this. But there isn't room enough
in this letter. So I'll save it to tell
you in person. Meanwhile, let me
say that this town ought to be nick-
named "gift shopper's paradise", and
I hope to be sent back here very
shortly. See you soon.

New scents are filling the brisk
autumn air. This is a year for glam-

keeping pace with the trends in sty-,

was her charm. This is a new per-

A love story is said to be told in
one radiant new perfume called "It's
You." This personalized scent has
inspired an amethystine make-up
which harmonizes very well with the
popular jewel tone shades such as
pearl gray, turquoise, mauve pink, or
violet. The make-up box includes
lipstick, nail polish, eye shadow, and
Influenced by the war is another
luxurious ,perfume, "Grand Prix",
which comes all done up in a little
leather boot. This makes a nice
gift for one's room mate if she's cer-
tain to be generous with it.
For a sophisticated perfume the
still new and astonishing "Shocking"
heads the list. Newly introduced
are scented bath sponges with their
surprise ending. They come in boxes
of twelve little pink pellets that blos-
som under water into giant wash
cloths scented with "Shocking".
For sports wear the clean fra-
grance of the Old English Lavender
Sachet still remains a favorite as do
the French "Tweed" and "Shanghai".
Back to the early American charm,
when blue-eyed Dolly Madison was
the toast of the land, we find the
motive present in "Old Spice".
Breezy But Blithe
A fragrance typifying the breezy,
blithe air of the college woman is
one "Carefree". This has a delightful
woodsy odor which appeals to the
outdoor girl as well as those who pre-
fer to sit by the fire.
Not new on the market but remain-
ing old favorites are "Opening

and she, had thought that being
neutral with a little color it would
go with all her clothes, along with
the padded shoulders, and the flared
skirt and the big buckle, and the
patch pockets with gathers at the
side and that big pleat in back. She
clutched it around her and managed
to pull out a flowered scarf to tie
around her face. Bending to catch
a pair of ornate rayon gloves with
wide gauntlets and small buttons
along the side, she caught a glimpse
of herself in the window of a store.
She did have a rather nice face,
round but not ugly; and her shoes
were the very prettiest pumps she
'could find, gabardine and patent
leather. Clamping the scarf on her
head, she thought momentarily, "Oh,
dear, I had wanted my hair to stand
out today-and in truth it did stand
out in quite a wide swathe of blonde-
ish fuzzy tuff.
Dwarfs Her Personality
Miserable, both because of the
dreary weather and something which
she could not define, she awkwardly
stalkedi through campus staring at
the ground, and speaking to no
one. Alice, our Goon Girl, "knew
it couldn't be because of her clothes."
She had paid a lot for that black
skirt and orangish sweater . . . now
weren't black and orange good Colors?
And she did curl her hair. And she
did wear make up-high on the cheek
bones, just ,like Marlene Dietrich,
and also orange lipstick and rouge
just like her favorite actress. So
it really couldn't be that, she thought.
And even nailpolish . .. that new
shade .of pink cloud. And still she
couldn't make anyone look at her
with interest. She still didn't have
any dates. What was the matter?
And so Alice became more morose
and grouchy as the days went by.
She spoke to no one, she was so
afraid that people would laugh if
she said more than a few words. And
as a defense mechanism she dived
deeper into some of the unopened
books in the library and said "She
would show them; she would get all
