New Fur AppointmentsAre Continually Produced

Leopard Trim
For Sport, Dress
Wear Is New
Ermine Popular For Formals
And Wraps; Fur-Lined Jackets
Are Practical For Winter Sports
Just when it seems almost impossi-
ble that there could be any more in-
nuendoes in the fur-fashion world,
out comes some ingenious designer
with startling and stunning outfits
that even the little animals who fur-
nish the skins couldn't have imagined
Zebras aren't exactly little animals,
from what we've seen of them in the
zoo, and their skins are definitely
startling even when in the natural
state, but when made up into a sort
of soldier hat with a huge muff-purse
combination to match, they're more
striking than ever.
Leopard Spats Are Innovation
Another innovation in the fur
world has to do with that most popu-
lar of furs this season, leopard. A
tricky little pair of spats has been
made u of leopard, devised to be
worn only with the most strictly tai-
lored sport shoes. There's a little
round bag to match, that completes
the outfit to be worn with a smart
While still on the subject of leop-
ard, here's a stunning outfit for those
who can both wear and afford to
wear it. It's a knee-length swagger
coat of leopard-cat with a small,
stand-uppish collar. There's a huge
halo hat and muff-purse to match
which really make up a sophisticated
Leopard On Formals
Two more items of leopard news
and then on to another fur! A snappy
little hat makes the front page, with
its aureole of leopard on black felt
background, and an item for the for-
mal news is a super-sophisticated
dinner dress of wool with leopard
trim on the low, suare neckline.
To continue with formal news there
are several new ideas done up in er-
mine. One is a black wool dinner
dress with an almost knee-deep hem
of white Russian ermine, and a stun-
ning wrap to top a more formal out-
fit is a cape oft black broadtail lined
with luscious white ermine.
A new item in dyed fur fashions is
Hudson-seal dyed muskrat. From all
reports it's going to be very popular
this year with the younger set as
well as those more experienced in the
fur world.
Furs Keep In Warmth
With all the tobogganing and ski-
ing to be done yet this winter, there's
nothing like fur to keep in that
much-needed warmth. There's a de-
lectable Eskimo parka edged with
warm, shaggy fur, which would have
plenty to its credit in the way of looks
even if it weren't snug as the pro-
verbial "bug-in-a-rug." A jacket to
be worn in the coldest of skating
weather is a plaid, boxy model, lined
with the softest of black or brown
French seal, depending on the colors
in the plaid. There's also a more
dressy tweed coat lined with the same
smooth fur.
Moat smart girls choose their
make-up and clothes according to
their particular type and there's real-
ly something in the idea. There's
really as much in the idea of choos-
ing a fur suitable to a certain type.
White ermine, leopard, silver fox,
mink, chinchilla, Russian lynx, beav-
er, reccon, and almost all of the
popular furs have their own separate
personalities. Why not choose a fur
as you choose clothes and accessories?

Why Not Knit Socks?
Get on the bandwagon and knit
your socks to match your sweater.
Both pretty and practical, the socks
take less time to finish than a sweat-
er, and because they are small can be
taken out.to be knitted upon in class
if you possess a strong enough con-
stitution to resist the icy stare of the
professor who strangely doesn't feel
the same about knitting as we gals do.

Wear Casual Furs For Campus Dates


Sheared Beaver and Skunk make up the type of classic great-coat
shown above. Worn with or without a hat, these coats fulfill all the
purposes for which you will ever need a fur coat-they are sporty
enough to wear to classes, and dressy enough to wear over your most
formal evening gown.
Hats Come Ito Ucydey Again

Warm Wools
Replace Light
Dress Fabrics
Cardigans No Longer Needed
For Extra Comfort; Pastels
Relieve Drabness Of Costume
At the Christmas festivities this
year the majority of American girls,
even though they may look just a
little bit summery, will be warmer
than ever before. This winter we
won't have to slip on cardigans over
our silk dresses to give us that extra
warmth, for dresses made of wool are
definitely replacing those of the light-
er materials. Even the dressiest of
"date dresses" now come in wool.
And in such colors! We no longer
have to go through winter as drab as
the landscape, in dark browns, greens,
and blacks, because pastels are quite
the vogue. Any group of well dressed
coeds will probably show a pleasant
sprinkling of light blues, pinks (there
seem to be more of these than any-
thing else), mauves, chartreuses,
aquas, and beiges-everything but
Wools Plain And Dressy
This crop of wools presents an
amazing variety. They range all the
way from types almost as dressy as
any velvet or taffeta afternoon dress
to the plain shirtwaist. Many of
these are very tailored, with long
sleeves, and skirts with only one or
two pleats in the front and back.
Some of these dresses button all the
way down the front.
Most of the more dressy types of
wools are collarless, usually with a
plain neck which often has some
small tucks or a little embroidery near
the edges. However, the small round-_
ed collars that were so popular last
year are by no means out. The sleeves
this season, as a whole, are three-
quarter length. Many of the skirts
are flared, but, as slim hips are again
fashionable, the fullness is concen-
trated in the front and back.
Drawstring Waistline Featured
With the exception of the promi-
nence of pastels, there is really very
little outstanding or different about
the actual style of this year's wools.
Perhaps the most distinctive feature
is the draw-string waistline.
Also, fancy belts are being featured
quite a bit to liven up the pastel
backgrounds. Many have gold or
silver braid along the edges. Some
have huge wooden buckles, while oth-
ers have attractive metallic designs.
Of this latter type and showing thei
increasing war consciousness of the
nation, is a belt made up of rows of1
little golden cartridges.
Bonnet Is Popular
Angora may be on the decline ac-
cording to some fashion experts, but
used in the new bonnets it's hitting
a new high in popularity. The bon-
nets, which are a replica of those
Mother used to keep our ears warm
when we were still in the carriage, tie
under the chin with a matching satin
ribbon. They are cut far back on the
forehead which gives room for the
pompadour curls to emerge.I

Snowy Slopes
Offset Wintry
Sports Clothes
As first snows pack the campus
grounds with the incentive for sports
fun throughout the winter season, the
search for warm but unhindering out-
door clothes begins.
Ski suits may be a repeat from last
season, but the improvement in
lightness of fabric make them entire-
ly new garments. Air-proof and
water-proof is the thin poplin that is
practically weightless, and yet pro-
vides all the warmth of heavy woolen
materials. Stolen from its former use
as covering for airplane wings, poplin
is usually made up in natural-col-
ored short jackets.
Use Natural Jackets
Dullness is not one characteristic
of the complete outfits made up in
poplin, however. Natural jackets com-
bine with any bright shade in ski
trousers; purchase the suit complete,
or mix the ingredients to suit your
taste. One particularly eye-catching
model is of dark navy trousers, with
a natural jacket hooded in navy with
red lining.
The suit is particularly practical
because of the possibilities of re-com-
bination with other jackets, other
skirts, and particularly with contrast-
ing accessories. The jacket is fitted
enough to look well with a campus
skirt, while it provides enough roomi-
ness to permit the wearing of a heavy
sweater underneath.
No More Ballerina Skirts
Skating costumes begin to look less
and less like ordinary skirt-and-jack-
et combinations, and still less like the
old-fashioned ballerina-skirt affair.
Corduroy and quilted cotton are the
prevailing materials, while the more
dressy outfits are made of velveteen,
heavy satins, and knitted wools.
Just-above-the-knee is the ap-
proved length for most of the models;
they are shorter than the usual cam-
pus skirt, and yet quite a bit longer
than the exhibition or professional-
type garment. Most of the jackets
are contrasted in color by the skirt,
and matched by the hem-lining or by
a hood.
White still holds the preferred sta-
tus in skates for women, in both the
regular and figure-skating types. Al-
though the styles vary very little
among the different manufacturers,
the fit of the boot is the most im-
portant consideration in the purchase
of a pair of skates.
Active snow ball fights demand
something in hand protection other
than inhibiting mittens. Woolen
gloves retain their popularity for
these cold occasions, although the
type of wool, the colors, and pat-
terns are varied practically every

Clever Toys
Delight Kiddies
Many Of Latest Children's Gifts
Imitate Grown-Up's Presents
Children's Christmas presents are
of three varieties: those which charm
the parents, those which delight the
child. and those which do both, estab-
lishing the good taste and popularity
of the giver.
Ask a child to describe the gift
whih pleased him least last Christ-
mas. It may have been a washcloth
in the form of Donald Duck, or a
pair of pajamas, or a Wee Folk's
Bedtime Book. But the chances are
that it was either practical or so
gayly nonsensical that Aunt Clara
couldn't resist it.
Or notice where a little boy spends
the dollar someone gives him. It
goes for candy, funny-paper books,
and Wild West shows. You could
give him no more fascinating Christ-
mas present than a box of 5 and
10 cent store surprises, with bubble
gum and penny candy wadded into
the corners. His father and mother
might be somewhat shocked as a
police whistle and water gun fall out
of the tissue paper, but he'd love you
for it.
This year's toy counters are bright
with inspirations sure to please both
the little cousin and his mother,
however. Many of the new toys are
in imitation of grownup presents
such as the miniature golf set, or
tiny refrigerators. Doctor and nurse
sets may be had at all price levels,
with corresponding ingenuity of de-
tail. The young doctor calls them
"Lots of fun," his mother cries,
"Cute!", while his father nods ap-
Not all original gifts are new on
the market. Boxing gloves, tool sets,
toy dishes, and tiny lockets, for in-'
stance, are as exciting to give as to
receive, and a welcome change from
the annual shower of books, games
and handkirchiefs.

Varied Fur Models Appear

Tradition has it that the world
travels in cycles, thus fashion is no
exception. To get to the point, fur
hats have come into their periodic
heydey and are adding the crowning
glory to the chic woman's costume.
A stroll down the main drag be-
twixt the League and Union last Fri-
day eve revealed that the Michigan
gal is up on her fashion, for a medley
of styles indicated that 6ir coeds are
relaxing the rule of a hatless date.
Leopard, beaver, and skunk models
appeared to be most popular in a
survey (apart from Fortune and Dr.
Gallup) made by this correspondent.
It was apparent that the size of hats
has been kept down to a minimum
both in width and height.
Poll Of Quills
Nine models were "shooting high"
with quills of different shapes and
hues. It is estimated that the majori-
ty of votes would go, in a poll of
quills, to one model fashioned of
skunik which sat atop the wearer's
blonde locks slipping over one eye.
Measuring six inches in diameter, the
startling affect was accomplished by
a blue feathered bird perched in the
center and apparently anchored to its
moorings by a high quill of matching
Then we noticed that one creation
caused heads to turn in retrospection.
It boasted being of all leopard com-
position and harmonized with the
wearer's leopard coat. Not pretentious

in design, the hat won its appeal be-
cause of its flattering lines. It was
modeled in Scottie style, tipped over
the right orb, with a brown velvet bow
ordering along in the back, courtesy
the West Wind.
Off-Face Beaver Version
Beaver, shirred to decrease its bulk-
iness, served one BWOC, as far as
fashion be concerned, in providing a
flattering off-face version which re-
minded us of a nurse's cap. Made of
French felt, the brim was banded in
the rich brown fur.
Something unusual and fitting on
the freshman who was showing it off
to full advantage was a green velvet
skull cap with a tremendous bow of
leopard attached to home plate.
We liked it, not only because it
showed originality, but because it is
practical. (Mother and Dad still foot-
ing the bills.) It will be as appro-
priate down at the Sports Building
accompanying its wearer as a specta-
tor at the basketball game as later
in the eve at the Union.
Perhaps an ideal gift to express
concretely your feelings toward
some demoiselle is a wrist watch.
Such a watch, first requires a sub-
stantial outlay of funds and indi-
cates to the woman that you think
enough of her to make a long-term
investment in her. And secondly a
watch is extremely 'helpful in
knowing what time it is.
