Have Varied Styles
Untrimmed coats are appearing
this season in many and varied styles
to delight the heart of the college
One unusual style featured by an
Ann Arbor store is the 'coachman
coat:' This moderately priced style
comes in an imported tweed mixture,
a brown and green background
flecked with yellow, red and blue.
The coat is a varation of the refeer
type and 12 buttons up the front give
a tailored double breasted effect.
Dressmaker details such as tucks
provide a fullness in the bodice and
large patch pockets serve as conven-
lent carry-alls. Set in stove pipe
sleeves and a green velvet scarf add
to the richness of detail.
LETTERS TO SANTA CLAUS
Airplane Metal, Colored
Rawhide And Tweed
Bags Are Now Featured
Cater to the Halliburton in your
friends by giving them some new lug-
gage this Christmas.
Nothing can give the traveler
more self-confidence and assurance
than the knowledge that his lug-
gage is exactly right.
For that special woman on your
list a stunning new fitted over-night
bag is suggested. Canvas covered
with raw hide binding, this bag is
lined in water proof red leather. The
accessories include a sewing kit, pin
cushion, cream and lotion jars, hair
brush, comb, jewel box, scissors, trav-
eling clock and removable mirror.
Two extra pockets are attached to
the main compartment, one for
cleansing tissues and another for all
of the little odds and ends that you
don't want mislaid.
Case Has Zipper Opening
Raw hide, the perennial favorite,
inay be obtained in a number of new
styles. One case opens on three
sides by means of a zipper. It is
extremely light in weight and holds
enough clothing for an entire, week-
end. Another Rase that is zipped on
three sides is made up in bright red
cowhide with an alligator grain.
Lined in black poplin, its bright cov-
ering will add a smart accent to any
An extremely new type of luggage
that looks as if it just came out of
"The World of Tomorrow" is called
airplane metal. Gleaming silver in
color, air sealed against dirt and dust,
this type of luggage is purported to
give a lifetime of service. These cases
are especially good-looking when
lined in deep wine colored taffeta,
with a cataline handle.
Another new type of luggage is
being introduced by a famous old
luggage concern. This type features
soft sides of brown and white tweed.
The bag is feather weight and looks
almost like the old fashioned plaited
straw "satchels." The old fashioned
look is belied however, by the gleam-
ing lining of white striped brown
White Rawhide Is Popular
White rawhide, the princess of all
luggage is increasingly popular. One
beautiful overnight case is a delicate
ivory shade initialed in silver. Gleam-
ing chromium fixtures and iveory
poplin lining complete the color
scheme. One concern that has spe-
cialized up to this time in plastics
enters the luggage field by putting
a processed fabric overnight bag on
the market. Due to some secret pro-
cess the strong fabric has been made
to look just like the aforementioned
white rawhide. This bag is wash-
able and is said to wear very well.
Even the most superior red cap will
be impressed if you stpp off the train
with antique brown rawhide luggage.

this set of luggage is lined in burnt-
DEAR SANTA CLAUS:
Well, this year I decided that I
wa~s going to cut myself a piece
of the cake. Every year father
an the children wonder what to
get me. They really give nice
gifts, but to tell the truth I do
wish that they would be practical
-so this not. What I really want,
and need, is a nice silk nighty.
One I can take on trips and wear
on nice occasions, yet usable. For
instance those dainty ones that
I'saw in VAN BURENS. They had
such pretty floral patterns, and
lovely lace. They were hand-made
too and came in large sizes be-
sides small. The baby pink and
blue would look so attractive with
that quilted bed robe I got there,
and which I like so much. Mo-
thers do really appreciate things
that are practical.
DEAR SANTA CLAUS:
Here I am in college and still
writing you letters, but a hint to
the wise is sufficient -I hope.
You may not realize it but it gets
very cold here in Ann Arbor. I
saw just what I
need for these sau-
. cy nights at DIL-
LONS. It is a
"dorm dud", in
sense language a
three piece pajama
set. They come in
soft wools and would be so comfy.
The colors are delicious, blue and
red plaids, loud but tops for tie
bed room. The jackets-with
four pockets, just think of the
things that I could dump in them,
would be smooth for those all-
,night bull sessions. Comfort in
the bed room - that's what we
need more of, so - maybe?
Yea man! Older Sister.

DEAR SANTA CLAUS:
There is nothing that I like
better than to sit comfortably in

thing that I would never buy for
myself, I'd like those pigskin
slippers which come in a case for
times when Mom and I go travel-
ing. Well, don't let me down.

I do feel foolish writing this
letter to you, but anyway we al-
ways have our childish moments,

I am a little girl six years old.
I want a big doll for Christmas.

He wanted me to tell 'you in case
you lost his letter. I have been

DEAR SANTA CLAUS:
Another year has passed, and
here it is near Christmas again.
Many things have happened, but
most drastic to me is the decrease
in my linen supply. Santa, I am
asking you to help me out. I can
hardly keep my eyes off the love-
ly, lace tablecloth displayed at
GAGE. Something nice, yet prac-
tical would be the nicest gift that
I could receive. The bridge sets
Costume Jewelry Makes Popular Gift
Fashion demands attractive jewelry in this gay season. Heavy

Are you one of these people that
automatically reach for the same
bottle of perfume whether you are
dressing for your nine o'clock or for
a formal dance? And do you know
that -the perfumes you wear are cap-
able of creating your moods as well
as influencing those of the people
The French, long known for their
immaculate taste and good grooming,
are probably more aware of the pow-
er of perfumes than any other women
in the world. Possibly for this reason
the perfumers of France are more re-
nouned than any others in the world
for their exquisite delicacy in creat-
ing distinctive perfumes.

so handy to carry around on trips.
Well Santa, I've got my fingers
crossed. Be good to me!
I want silk pajamas for Christ-
mas. I need them. Nothing is
nicer whenI travel to the differ-
ent house parties. Things a lit-
tle nicer than usual are always
in demand, especially for Chris-
mas presents. I noticed SORENS
have some just like what I have
in mind. They are
two pieced and'
have such pretty
colors. I like to de-
pend on Soren's af- -
ter that bargain I
got on that chenille &

wouldn't turn down '
sweaters either. I hardly wear
anything else to school. Boxy car-
digans are in this year, the slop-
pier the better. And with every
color in the rainbow, no skirt
need go without a match. Things

I am on a budget this year. I
must have things that are prac-
tical. I work, so the thing that
would be most appreciated by me
for Christmas would be a sweater.

is so attractive.
