Jewelery Designers Go

To Nature For

For A Date

Gadgets Are Novel


Shells, Cork,
Wood Offer
Colorful Ideas
Sporting World Contributes
Cues For Novelties In Fashion;
Flowers, Animals Are Popular
Gilding the lily will be delightful
work this Spring, for jewelry de-
signers have created some arresting
styles to don this season's wardrobe.
Jewelry will be fun to wear and clever
designers have conceived most of
their ideas from the sporting world.
Sailing is important recreationally,
and in fashion too. One necklace
boasts of natural wooden boats and
anchors alternately hung on a chain
of wooden rings. A breezy accessory
is a graceful sailboat made of a pa-
triotic red, white and blue plastic
material that promises to last longer
than one sailing.
Now you can make your strikes and
spares outside of bowling alleys by
wearing an intricate pin of a mipia-
ture bowling ball that always knocks
them down.
Jacks Provide Adornment
Returned to popularity is the game
of jacks for entertainment and adorn-
ment. One clever pin invites you to
a game by extending a wooden hand
full of gold, jacks and ball. You can
steer your own boat now by wearing
a unique silver captain's wheel en-
crusted with rhinestone and a syn-
thetic ruby center.
Back to nature is easily the theme
of jewelry makers, for they have-re-
turned to using nature's raw mater-
ials for some clever novelties. Whole
necklaces of square bits of bright
hued sponge are effective on sweat-
ers, and their ;brilliance and size are
reminiscent of Hawaiian leis. Cork,
jewelry dressed up in pastel lacquers
and assuming the shape of bottle
tops make cute sports bracelets and
Real unpolished shells combined
with rough leather compose necklaces
of a primitive charm. Unusual and
colorful is the jewelry made up of
bamboo sticks and red and green
Nuts Add Glamour
Man's ingenuity added to just the
common pecan1 produces some start-
ling results, for nuts are no longer
nuts when an artistic mind thinks
of glamorizing the ordinarily unat-
tractive shells. A real fashion terror
is the necklaces with hand painted
faces of cannibal witch doctors which
is strikingly like the larger coconut
heads of zombies. Then too, authen-
tic sea horses have been processed
for use as jewelry.
Evolved from the fad of wearing
footwear on or dresses are the gold
or silver Roman sandals which act
as clips to add a classic touch to
modern dresses. To be truly bewitch-
ing, yet feminine, add pins of rhine-
stone or brilliants to your costume.
Huge sprays of flowers, graceful bow
knots, lucky horse shoes, keys, and
question marks are popular patterns
for these dressier jewels.
Wood is as good as ever for casual
accents, and either plain or pointed
fruits or animals are fashion leaders.
Pins of carved wood are now made
to resemble floral pictures in frame-

Since Fashion Futures a few
months ago enough time has passed
to see what predictions have rung
true. "Fashion Loyalties," the color
green, straighter skirts, ruffles and
flowered hats were among them. All
have proven themselves.
The loyalties are the biggest fa-
vorites, and top
among them is
U. S. boosting
with military
trends, and best
of those are the
sailor outfits.
Navy blue, gold buttons, square
collars and anchors adorn feminine
raiment now. Gold chains and
mnilitary belts on suits give the
army full credit as do stripes and
eagle emblems. Even the air corps
does its part to decorate a white
crepe formal with spreading wings
below the neckline.
Next most acceptable of the loyal-
ties, is Chinese. Smoothest of cover-
up fo).mals under the oriental influ-
ence can be topped by large flowers,

Tailored Suits
Take .Dictation
From Militia
The men of the country won't be
alone in uniform this spring, not with
the styles that designers have "draft-
ed" or created in women's suits.
Borrowing their ideas from the
army, the navy, the air force and
the military splendor of past cen-
turies, they have turned out trim
two and three piece outfits for sports-
wear and dressier occasions, tailored
very much like those of our fighting

Sport Jackets
Reach To Hips
Mannish Influence Still Popular;
Open-Throat Models Fashioned
Of Soft Materials Are Shown
Women's fashions seem to have
been drafted into the army.
This impression is given by pre-
views of this spring's sport coats. The
influence of the army and navy upon
the new styles can't be overlooked.
The women, also, this year will have
gold stripes on their sleeves.
The gold buttons down the front
of the jacket are decorated with the
United States eagle, and some styles
even have epaulets on the shoulders.
For those who are strong for the
navy, there are jackets with nautical
designs on the sleeves.
Mannish Influence Noted
But this mannish influence is car-
ried even into the design of the spring
sport jackets. The new styles are very
tailored and generally masculine ap-
pearing. The long hip length, to-
gether with the straight liues of the
jacket, add to this appearance, and
also help emphasize. the long slim
f figure, which is going to be more pop-
ular than ever this spring.
The latest thing in jacket collars is
the open-throated style, made like the
silk shirts which dominate campus
this season. Most of the jackets this

Color Are Dull
Most of the suits are very tailored
and in navy or some dull color re-
sembling khaki, like the uniforms
of the present day, but many make I
use of lighter blues, reds and the
cape-like effects which added dash
to the garb of the officers of the 18th
and 19th centuries.

Greek wraps also follow this
trend. In earth brown they adapt
themselves to a wool jersey after-
