In this age of fur styles through
which we are now passing, a cos-
tume like this is a typical dream of
any college girl. The large brimmed
leopard skin hat with a roomy
matching muff brings a certain
straight-from-Paris aire to the out-
fit. The muff is also a purse, a
combination unsurpassed for eve-
ning wear.

a-days, it is a comparatively simple
task for a girl to completely make
over an outfit. Add a bit of fur
here or a strip of lace there. We
suggest arranging balls of fur to
clamp on your shoes-it's stunning
and it's new. A matching fur purse
and hat will make it even more ef-

Women on campus have been af-

and are sporting their woolies to bed.
Doctor Dentons, reminiscent of child-

selves invaluable, especially when it
comes to that first dive into bed be-

Grandma swore by flannel nighties
and many a granddaughter has taken
over the policy that the yards of
flannel in a gown will be protection
against the most bitter cold. Huge
flowered prints are especially old fa-
shioned looking and fit in with the
idea of auaintness that is associated
with nighties.
Booties, night caps (shaped like
bonnets) and mittens, designed for
night wear, are considered a neces-
sity with women who sleep in open
air dorms. Glamour ceases to be the
word in nigh apparel and comfort
