The promise of melting snow brings
with it the fading desire to ski and
toboggan, the hopeful look towards
canoing and tennis, and the inevi-
table wish for some enthusiastic
sports clothes.
Gone are the pink parasol and?
frothy dress combinations for a late
afternoon canoe party. Into the
wardrobe must go one servicable pair
of slacks that show the cooperative
spirit in working the boat up-stream.

colors that rival chocolate creams to

Slacks Go Navy
Most noticeable of the new influ-

navy craze, most suitable to these
trousered garments. Blouses have
gone back to grammar school days
with middie models to hang to the
hip, and navy-blue ties draped in a
loose knot at the throat. Emblems

newer creations--emblems to take

Soft Shetland, Cashmere Yarns
Remain Classic Favorites; Red
Cross Gives Instruction
Are you a knitter? Whether you
are experienced at the art or simply
a potential enthusiast, this article
is for you.
The Daily has received reports from
campuses all over the country about
the growing popularity of knitting.
Women are knitting everywhere for
themselves, for the Red, Cross, for
Bundles for Britain, and for the
countless other charities for war re-

know how! Just hie yourself down
to the W.A.B. of a Saturday after-
noon and get some instruction from
our own Red Cross unit. They'll start
you on something simple like a child's
sweater. You can have it done in

You'll soon find that knitting has
its decided advantages: you can keep
your hands busy while conversing, at-
tending meetings, or lectures, and will
soon get the habit of picking up your
work in any odd moments.
You may even join the past mas,
ters of the art who concentrate on a
book while their needles fly. Some

War Revives Knitting Epidemic;
Argyle Socks Are Fashion Pets

mere-the yarn, which is imported
from Scotland is rather expensive
on account of the war, but well worth
the money, though American yarn
can be just as good. We guarantee
that with a little patience and perser-
verence, you'll have a sweater to rival
your best friend's favorite Brooks.
If you can tear yourself away
from classic styles long enough to
consider novelty yarns, nubby and
rich-textured, you'll find infinite pos-
sibilities for unusual effects with rib-
bing and more difficult stitches.
If you don't want to tackle a
sweater, try some of those amazing
new spiral socks-just a matter of
knit and purl. They have no heels,
yet they fit your feet to a T. Very
simple, buy some sock needles or a
circular sleeve needle, and get busy
on that yarn.
Argyles Are Pets
Argyles are probably your pet pas-
sion right now-those diamond socks
women have stolen from the men.
They are not so dificult to make if
ypu have had some experience, and
they give you an opportunity to
dream up something original in the
way of color combinations.
Get your friends to donate left-
over skeins, and work out color pat-
terns to go with two or three of your
sweaters, such as beige, aqua, and
fyellow, or navy, peach, and white.
The number gf concoctions is unlim-
ited so just use your imagination.
You might knit a pair in red, gray,
and black for your big brother or the
man, and then a slightly smaller edi-
tion for yourself.
You have the fingers. Here is some-
thing in the way of inspiration (we
hope). So get on the bandwagon and
knit like mad!

Evening Sweater Described
For evening and dinner wear, there
is a ribbed boucle number, waist-coat
style. It has tiny buttons to the waist-
line and from there on it's cut away
just like a waist-coat. A beautiful
cable-stitched sweater with large
patch-pockets is elegant for informal
evening wear too!
Since suits of all descriptions are
going to be the thing this spring, lots
of sweaters and blouses will be needed
4o complete the effect, and there's
one sweater that will not only com-
plete it but definitely enhance it!
It's a two-toned, ribbed model and
comes in any combinations of colors
that could be desired, blue and white,
pink and white, and so on far into
the color prism.
Cashmeres ArerFavorites
When the weather gets a little
warmer, a cashmere slip-over will be
on the list of every sweater lover. It's
made on a fine-gauge machine and is
as thin, light and expensive looking
as anyone could want.
