Alright, so you were soaked at the
game yesterday. Perhaps, at the mo-
ment you feel that you could never
work up enthusiasm for any kind of
a coat except the newest model ren-
dered in pure rubber with seams
caulked with resin.
But the time is coming-and you
can hardly disagree with this, be-
cause winter always has come-when
the dearest thing to your heart will
be the shortest path to a warm fur,

One big jump right from college
into the midst of a career-that's
what Vogue's sixth annual Prix De
Paris contest is offering this year to
college seniors who have a flair for
writing combined with an accurate
eye for fashion.
Once again this fashion magazine

good, of course, is the award awaiting
the second prize winner, while the
five best articles submitted during
the course of the contest will be paid
for and printed in Vogue.
For anyone who is interested in
magazine work, fashion reporting or
feature writing, this is an opportunity
to gain experience and prestige in
holding down an editorial job that is
almost bound to lead to bigger and
