Broadway Hit

Petitioning For Positions On W.A.A.
Executive Board Will Begin Monday

._. ..

it's to the Navy now that the
know-it-ails of fashion give full en-
dorsement. Michigan women are do-
ing a good "job of boosting the fleet
of the U.S.A. in spite of the fact
that they're far from the sea air, for
there's not an article of clothing that
hasn't seen the nautical adaptation.
Only the most attractive of each can
get its praise here in print.
Tops in seafaring date dressesf
is of navy blue silk crepe, and has
a slightly flared skirt. The square
collar has two white stripes edging
it, and the double stripes are also
on the cuffs of the long sleeves.
It's cut to a low V in front and
the neckline is filled in with a hori-
zontally striped, red and white,
round-necklined, dicky.
White percale middie blouses, with
colorful naval emblems on their short
sleeves, are for classroom wear. They
even have a blue tie running under
tha collar and put through a loop in
front just like in grade school days.
FiAvorite in hats of this vogue is a felt
beret (soon it will be a straw beret)
worn on the back of the head. It can
have a gold emblem in front but is
even more dashing with only two
loose grosgrain streamers dropping
from the center of the crown to an
inch or two below the edge.
The best in sailor formals is so
beautifully severe it makes one
gasp. Of white crepe, its square
collar is dusted with red stars-
thickest around the edges--and
the belt is also star dusted. Sleeves
are short and plain. The skirt has
four unpressed pleats in front, and
four in back, with the sides very
straight. Knotted loosely around
the neck is a pink chiffon ker-
chief. Suggestion for an evening
wrap is a sweeping cape, red on one
side and blue on the other, with
lots of gold braid.
Even shoes sing their part in "an-
chors aweigh." Navy blue pumps with
medium heels have flaps with a bor-
der of white and a white anchor in
the center. To Navy gloves dash is
added with an anchor on the backs.
If the Navy hand bags with draw-
strings were many sizes larger they

through the lessons will help the
