fur Is Popular
With Designers
Of Fall Styles
Jewelry, Shoes, Hats, Gloves
Coats, Muffs, Suit Trimming
Are Among Numerous Uses
Eskimos and Indians have had
the monopoly on fur for their clothes
for a long time, but the designers,
from all indications have encroached
upon said monopoly and are not only
offering new combinations of fur in
coats, but also fur shoes, jewerly, hats
and gloves.
One favorite, which will be seen a
lot this season at football games and
skiing parties, is none other than
pony skin. It has been made into
fleece-lifned shoes and boots; and also
warm, snug vests to keep out the win-
try blasts. Leopard is, one of the
most popular of all furs this year,
and there is a stunning giant clip'
of leopard designed to wear, with a
favorite leopard muff or hat. Two un-
Usual pieces of jewelry in fur are a
bracelet of black Persian lamb, jew-
el-studded, with earrings to match,
and a necklace of matched ermine
tails, also with earrings to match.
Civet Cat Appoints Outfit
An extreme, but definitely striking
outfit is a black wool dinner suit, with
a knee hem of civet cat fur, a match-
ing beret, sand muff. Just touches of
this fur seem to give that air of
sophistication seen in vogue this sea-
Away from the specific for a mo-
ment, a fur that will be seen in the
form of capes, jackets, full-length
coats, and what-not, is white baby
lamb. It is to be used for evening,
afternoon and sport's wear, and when
lined with bright red or some other
brilliant hue, makes a particularly at-
tractive outfit. Another new fashion
note this year is the combining of
two different furs in one costume.
For example a soft, beige-toned fur is
used for collar, cuffs and pockets on
a black caracula coat, adding a youth-
ful touch.
For just a touch of fur, instead
of a whole garment, a suit of beige
wool, one of the season's most im-
portant colors, is made particularly
attractive with a pert mink turban,
mink reveres, and dark brown acces-
sories. These fur turbans are ex-
tremely popular with the smart set
these days. They are made to match
any or all fur outfits in one's ward-
robe. Another attractive suit is one
of imported wool with hip length
across the bands of fur to match a
jacket which has a fur-trimmed col-
lar, and huge pockets with criss-cross
bands of fur on each one. There is
also a tiny hat to match this out-
A coat to be seen much this winter
is a smart grey broadtail treated like
cloth. It has enormous pouch-pockets,
a small-round neck-line and an ex-
tra amount of buttons. Straight, reef-
erlike lines are featured and the col-
or combinations all the "go" this

For Rainy Days

was. Them days are gone forever.'
Now. on every rainy day some new
rain apparel appears. One of the
newest is the knee high rubber boots
in red, white, black, or brown. They
are a good guarantee against rain-
splattercd legs. Some boots can be
worn over shoes, and others are made
with shoes inside. They have made
a valiant struggle to be accepted on
the campus, and this year have won.
A fitting headgear to be worn with
these boots is the policeman-like
rubber helmet. A strap under the
chin secures it. Try wearing boots
and helmet of the same color. Another
suitable rainy-day headpiece is the
triangle scarf in cellophane or oiled
clothe. You might be inclined to try
something super-new sgch as the
'porkie pie' hat that is made of viny-
tile, a new composition. It shapes
well, and makes a grand twosome
with the reversible.
Come and go what may in the
fashion parade, the reversible still
reigns supreme. Perhaps some of the
reasons is that it offers so many
variations in colors, cut, and mater-
ials, and yet its main purpose, that
of a quick change to a raincoat, re-
mains constant. Manty types of rain-
coats vie with the reversible for first
place, such as raincoats of cellophane
or of oiled silk.

Perhaps because of our interest
in things American. we have turned
to the Indian and have stolen some
feathers from his war bonnet. We
have used these feathers in numerous
ways, from swooping quills that tow-
er above the crowd to tiny stuffed
birds which nestle amidst veiling,
but this year we also have little hats
made wholly of feathers. We find pill-
boxes with tiny jet ones and tur-
bans of soft plumes in muted shades
that are particularly attractive with
Indians Add Feather
Even on sports hats, the feather,
we find, is the inevitable touch. Plain
felt snap-brims and cloches (another
bit of our American fashion now be-
ing revived) almost invariably have
a little feathery tuft in the hatband.
The very popular Scotch cap would
not be considered complete without
its feather.
Besides hats made of feather sthose
of fur have invaded the stores this
fall. They, too, are often completely
of fur, such as beaver, leopard cat,
or Persian lamb, or else they just
have a bit of mink or fox trimming
on felt. Fur hats can be worn with
fur coats, but they are considered
equally smart when serving, along
with a huge fur muff or purse, as
accessories to plain, meticulously
draped cloth coats.
Suitable for most every occasion

If you are conservative, a lover of
things that are perennially smart,
you have no doubt already solved the
problem of winter coats, both for
sports and dates. If, however, you

for something new: stores are filled

coat that reminds you of your happy
childhood; namely, one of red or

familiar nautical insignia - or you
can have that too if you really want
to be patriotic.
A suggestion which would meet the
demands for warmth and smartness
is the snow-white polar-bear coat,
of cotton-backed wool fleece, lined
and hooded in red and black plaid.
Or if you have just received your al-

Those dress designers must have
terrific minds; they sweat and slave
all year and then emerge with exact
replicas of standard men's clothing
and automobile hoods.

Hankies have regained*their sta-
tus in popularity. Out of the purse
now drops a dainty lace handkerchief
instead of the rough edge paper tis-
sues that may carelessly be thrown
away after use.
Femininity has overcome practi-
cability, and handkerchief styles once
again are being noticed. All over flo-
ral designs, bits of dainty lace or
big masculine ones are making their

Real lace hankies are difficult to

a high collar which extends down the
front in a flowing group of ermine
tails. Another unusual ermine crea-
tion is a shawl of white-Russian
ermine with a small crown collar,
and hand-drawn fringes of white silk
edging the complete shawl. There
is another striking fur this year in
the new "black-coffee" ermine.
A subtle complement for black
is natural Russian lynx. There is a
unique role for this attractive fur
with its ends cleverly arranged to
snap into a muff over the wrists.

Perhaps it is this scarcity that has
made real lace the sudden vogue of
'fashion. Lace experts give instruction
for the novice in buying handkerchiefs
bordered with genuine handmade
lace. Notice the corners of the lace,
they advise. If the corners are mit-
ered, the hankie is less valuable than
if the border has been made on a
frame, in which case there will be no
seams in the lace.
Hankies Are Tailored
Practical for campus life are the
initialed monogramed hankies which
are easily identified. These look best
in tailored styles with the emphasis
given to the color scheme. Gay floral
