when donning one's under pants.
Still preferred by many are the
more brief jockey shorts, cool and
comfortable, not only for spring but
for all-year wear.
New colors this year are being fea-
tured in shorts, the newest idea being
to have your shirts, shorts and hand-
kerchiefs of the same pattern, though,
some may consider the advantages
here of a rather doubtful nature.

Heavy' Men
Are Advised
On Fashions
If you're characterized by an over-
abundance of avorduopois, it's no rea-
:on to be discouraged, fellows.
For you may frequently be the
brunt of many an ill-aimed college
>rank, but if you know how to select
,our clothes the right way, you will
ind yourself returning to popularity
with that magnificent American spec-
'es, the Michigan coed.:
Select your clothes so as to elongate
and uibroaden your frame. To put it
--ruelly, if you're a little over-devel-
iped around 'the equator, don't, for
heaven's sakes, wear the blatantly
loud colors and definitepatterns that
your brother thin man does.
But you can still wear some plaids,
she smaller the" better. In fact, a
:laid jacket with matching vertically
4riped trousers is an excellent com-
bination for the obese individual.
And a few don'ts, too-avoid round-
ad shirt colors ,and 'bulky, tweedy
coats. For rough clothes stick to
cheviots and Saxonies--they are moreI
.lattering to the figger, boys.

Tobacco Pouch
Must Be Neat
Design Includes Gadgets
To Guarantee Moisture
Another essential for the well-
dressed man this spring is a tobac-
co pouch that not only keeps your
tobacco in the right condition, but
also looks fairly neat in appearance.
Latest innovation in this line is a
pouch made of a material similar to
}nylon, with a water proof rubberized
lining. On the outer layer there is a
little button-like apparatus, thiough
which a few drops 1of water are
equirted into the space between the
two layers of material. This water
keeps the tobacco moist and fresh.
Key And Watch Chains
Attract Varied Crests,
What men will wear on their key
or watch chains has become an im-
portant problem in men's fashions.
Aside from wearing a Phi Beta
Kappa key, if you can get one, or
showing how smart you were when
you were a freshman by sporting a
Phi Eta Sigma crest, there are count-
less charms one can wear on a chain.

The pouch comes' equipped with a zipper and a rubber lining. The two

Also fairly new is, the zippered air-tight, thus- preventing the tobac-

Varied Colors
Even in belts the keynote is color
this spring.
Newest fad is in transparent plas-
tics which come in many brilliant
color, as well as in plain colors, which
take on the hue of the trousers you
wear. Of course, this gives the a'p-
pearance of not wearing any belt,
and if you've a new belt, you will
want to .how it off. So Daily fash-
ion experts recommend a little dash
of color around the midriff.
New braided belts are quite the
thing, especially in two-tone leather,
Brown and tai together, or brown
and white braid gives a very pleasing
For light-weight weanr, belts of
Palm Beach cloth, Bermuda cloth,
Congo cloth, and other tropical fab-
rics should be in order, in many pas-
tel hues for summer wear.
A combination belt-pouch is good
this year, serving the double func-
tion of belt and pouch.
