Fashion Features Plaids,
Black And Gold Stripes
For FallEvening Wear
Of course the news has spread
around by now that bustles and low
waistlines are the fashion sensation
of the season for formal wear. But
fortunately for those of us who are
shy of radical styles, these. features
will be definitely modified for the
campus formal.
Even plaids are appearing in shim-
mering new materials and youthful
models to delight all feminine hearts
this winter. One unusual dress of
a rich plaid has a band of gold
threads through it to add a glow
under artificial lights. The skirt is
full with a high bodice bound in a.
black velvet band and topped by
narrow velvet straps. It has a jacket
of the same material with smart vel-
vet revers.
Black And Gold Stripes Unusuala
Stripes are in excellent taste in
excellent taste if they are of a black
and gold-cloth combination. One
classic dress of this type is cut on
simple lines that flow into a full
skirt from a high bodice. There is
a little shirring on the top to give
grace to the wearer and emphasize
the lines- of the dress. Its crowning
glory is a halter top and tailored mess

the big occasions of the year.

One of the most important aspects
of. the. University woman's life is the
care she. gives herself. She dresses in
fireman's time, she rushes off to a
multitude of activities, classes and
appointments and nine times out of
teen tiears herself away from a bridge
game with half an hour to go before
an important week-end date.
But for al! of this, her face and
figure come first when her time is
being planned on the personal ac-
tivity budget. Good grooming is es-
sential to a successful college career
and the dozens of little points that
go into the creation of a -well dressed
woman may be tucked into the time
budget so as not to interfere with
stuying or the traditional bull ses-
Fruit Juice Is Better
Complexions are of prime impor-
tance and are seriously menaced
with the college woman's' custom of
mid-night snacks and eating be-
tween meals. For the benefit of both
face and figure it might be well to
try ordering a fruit drink instead of
a coke when the group gathers for a
few minutes relaxation. And do go
easy on rich deserts and candy, espe-
cially chocolate, which will play havoc
with the best of complexions.
In spite of the advertisements,
most college women have neither the
time nor the patience to bother with
an. elaborate set of creams and lo-
tions although they do find that a
liberal application of cream about
once a week will help to retain the
fine soft texture of the skin against
the harsh winter breezes.
Makeup Must Blend
A good foundation is really all that
is needed for a clear complexion if
one is careful to remove every trace
of make-up each night. Make-up
must be chosen to harmonize with in-
dividual skin tones ,and particularly
with one's wardrobe.
The care of the hands, nails and
elbows are another important prob-
lem that need not take a great deal
of time if it is gone about in a scien-
tific manner. Careful scrubbing, little
cream on the elbows and a bi-weekly
change of nail polish is a contribut-
ing factor to a well-groomed appear-
The new long hair-dos will require
more careful washing and brushing
than ever this winter. For a sleek,
smooth coiffure try several minutes
of' vigorous brushing every night. It
will do wonders towards relaxing one
after a concentrated study session.
If the length of your hair bothers you
while you're striving to do a difficult
bit of translation, why not gather up
the loose ends in a coarse snood that
will be attractive as well as comfort-
The daily shower is one of the col-

lege woman's "musts" to 'pep her up
before a day of classes. It takes only
a minute longer to use a cologne
following this and the refreshing
effects will stay with one for hours.
Perhaps you are the sort who prefers
a shower to tubs, but a weekly soak
and scrub is essential even if you're
sure your daily shower removes the-
dirt. The relaxing effect does won-
ders for your disposition, especially
when a few 'drops of bath oil 'or'
bubble soap are added to the water.-
'When you are dressing in twenty
minutes- flat be sure you don't reach
blindly for the nearest bottle of per-
fume. A touch of just the right per-
fume to fit your mood, and the occa-'
sion will do more to make the eve-
ning a success than the smallest drop
of too heavy or too flippant a scent
could ever do. But be careful that it
