Gabardine Raincoats
And Bright Umbrellas
Help Dark Rainy DaysI
It takes a rainy day to bring out
originality and cheerfulness in many
people. Infinite are the ways in which
one can make the most of a rainy
There are the little gabardine wat-
er-proofed jobs which come in gay,
charming colors, and can be worn on
campus rain or shine. In sunny
weather, if you want to be collegiate,
roll up the sleeves, let the coat fly
If rain makes you furious, and your
hair straight, invest in a gay um-
brella to replace the inevitable ban-
dana. Get -a brilliantly colored one
while you're at it-a bright red one
will throw a rosy glow over your face
until you'll think you're in a sunset
in the face of the darkest clouds.
Add White To Green
Dark green, with all the coolness
that hot weather demands, becomes
more effective when touched with
white. Add or subtract detachable col-
lars for effect. A variety of touches,
all removable and washable, will give
the same dress a new lift.

Dickie Dress

Is Crisp

Contrast And Sheen Furnish



Ladies and gentlemen, here it
comes! The fashion show that was
designed for you. Ever up to the
minute, these
traditional Dai-
tly shows start
and end every
4q, ,school year with
a style smash.
This season's
will include every cotton, silk or or-
gandy bit that a co-ed ever wished
for herself or a Michigan man wished
to see on his date.
.The wealth of sport clothes that
stylists have thought up for sunny
weather is quite something. No need
to say that broomstick pleated skirts
are on the top of the list. Done
mostly in' cottons spattered with
tiny flowers and worn with white
shirts, they'll still be the symbol
of this summer in dotted Swiss for
dating or in bigger prints with a
wide band of lace near the hemline
for a broomstick evening skirt. Cas-
ual blouses with tiny sleeves and
low round necklines are made to
match them.
Picnic slacks have a future in the
straight and narrow, and come up
high around the ankles. Many bath-
ing suits now look so much like
shorts that they can be used as such.
These have wide straips and so-full
and-flouncey skirts that start at mid-
hips and end at the pantie-line. The
real thing in shorts is, of course, to
be long and English-y, mostly with
cuffs and big patch pockets.
Although spectator cottons are,
still tailored, they have a 1941
knack. Some, have crossed over
necklines and: others slip on likea
coats and are : crossed over all the1
way down. Plunger collars are be-.
ing used with: a single big buttonJ
to hold the shirt waist in place.I
Others have deep V stitching down
the front of the blouse to empha-
size the V cut, of the collar.,
At the same-time that we're speak-1
ing of such clothes, let's put in the
hope that this spring won't be like
the last and that we'll be able to go
about campus. in fair weather togs
just a little bit before exam time. 1
If and when we do, the maze of colors
will be terrific, considering every
color is a prominent color this sea-C

ed that long waistlines are here to
stay. If those aren't your forte,
then at least there must be waist-
line emphasis with drapes or ac-
cessories. Sleeves of silk suits end
above the elbow and are cuffed. And
the ever-flattering V necks should
coine in for their share of glory.
Looking for a formal? Then you've
considered something South Ameri-
can, no doubt. Be formal about it
and get a sleeveless white lace with
tiers and tiers of ruffles down the
skirt, or don't be so and get a be-
flowered skirt with a white silk blouse
or an also-beflowered midriff top.

night in

If there's to be no
new formal, at least
get a Chinese house-
boy jacket to wear
over the basic white
you've had for years,
or a mandarin coat as
an evening wrap.
Another fine job to
wrap up and say good-
is flowered silk quilted
Light Handbags



Accessory Ru
Light with dark and dark with light
is the perennial and obvious rule for
summer accessories. And because
campus fashion does not like to be
either perennial or obvious, it intro-
duces shine and color as important
accessories factors this summer.
The light-dark rule still holds, how-
ever, for white gloves against dark
sheers, and cool white straw hats.
above lace necklines. Washable slip-
cover purses make a practical laun-
dry-fresh accompaniment.
The diminutive effect of dark
gloves against pastel skirts remains
an advantage for larger hands. Tiny
matching hats sprout summer flowers
to distinguish themselves from fall
and winter cousins, while dark
trimmed shoes complete the harmony
of the costume. In classic or new-
est styles, heads, hands and feet are
always in close partnership, be they
five feet nine inches or a bare five
feet apart.
Summer umbrellas come in a burst
of original styles. No longer just
black and white, dark or light-they
are sheer, shining and bright. Some

are flowered, some match pink, yellow
and sky-blue raincoats, and some fold
to purse size or open in the handle
to a convenient compact compart-
Sports clothes have their own
accessories, and kidnap the boldest
colors. Canvas shoes come in gypsy
colors--red, yellow, green, blue, with
stripes and contrasts not neglected.
The sailor cap joins tl e visor, the
beanie and the bandanna for sporty
headwear. Sports bags are gayer
than ever, and large enough to
smuggle picnic sandwiches.
There are many possibilities for
hysterical color combinations in the
riot of this summer's accessories. But
to the clever girl they offer even
greater chances for striking combina-
tions, matched and contrasted.
Spectator Has Lizard
Newest in spectator sport shoes is
the traditional white with untradi-
tional lizard. This shoe can be worn
with black, brown or blue, and won't
clash. ;

Days Demand
Qa Housecoats
For wear around the house these
lazy summer mornings housecoats
provide one of the prettiest and most
comfortable garbs.
Sheer Bemberg rayon printed wrap-
arounds are flattering and feminine.
Other popular fabrics include cot-
ton pique, terry cloth, seersucker and
gingham. Made in a variety of styles,
some housecoats have tulip sleeves,
shirred yolks or tropical designs.
Housecoats as well as other apparel
show the military influence. Red,
white and blue are combined with
sailor colors, chevrons and other mili-
tary insignia. Lightweight housecoats
of flower prints are being worn over
pajamas of the same, but heavier
Not only becoming but also prac-
tical are cotton terry cloths that can
be worn for both beach and boudoir.
Big initials on the pocket and match-
ing scuffs and turban complete the

For Summer Wear
Include Gay Plastics
For summer a smartly dressed col-
lege girl will have large, yet light
hand bags.
Science has offered two synthetic
products for milady's pocket book.
She may have a large rectangular
Alaska white linesette bag with a
plastic top. The clasp is becomingly
piped in banner red "cheques". Bags
of spun glass plastic are also on the
market. One style is bound in navy,
red, green, beige, black or tan gabar-
A carry-over from spring but still
popular in warmer weather is a large
square pocket-book of shiny saddle
leather. The bag is pleated in front
and also has stitching in saddle
leather. Besides natural and honey
tan, the pocket-book comes in red
and white. An outstanding feature
is its washability.

For color relief, and for fresh-
ness, merely change the dickie
collar, to blend or contrast.
