Favorite Fall Colors Are Gay;
Attractive Styles Also Demand
Comfort And Good Grooming
Clothes don't "make or break you,"
but the right clothes certainly help
you to put your best foot forward, at
a time when a first impression is
pretty important. What we mean,
of course, is that along with neat
grooming and the ability to balance
a teacup with grace, te right clothes
do make a difference, especially dur-
ing rushing, the first hazard you'll
encounter in your university career.
For the initial teas a silk or dressy
wool is in order. This gives you
plenty of leeway certainly. Maybe
and most probably you have a "good
black" you intend to wear. A varia-
tion this year of the perennial black
is the use of two materials such as
velveteen with a contrasting band of
faille, crepe with bands of velvet, or
wool with sequins or glittering jet.
Colors Shine Bright
Important news this fall are pri-
mary colors-clear and bright. If
red acoents your black hair. then wear
its in a wool jersey dirndl-three-
quarter sleeves and a full skirt gath-
ered onto a tight waistband-de-
sindto Make your waist look even
smaller. Bright blue, a soft yellow
of an electric purple are eqally eye-
catching and bound to make the
sisters remember you as "the girl
in that smooth purple wool with the
crocheted hat that perched on the
kback of her head."
Velveteen suits are perfect for tea-
inig,,especially for these early fall
clays .when it's too warm to wear a
coat. One little basque version is
edged with braid, while challis has
been'bo'rrowed from the peasants.to
add a gay flowered ,note to' suit
blouses. And, speaking of 'suits, you
can dress up your new plaid suit with
pumps and a jaunty hat to go a-tea-
Accessories Individual
Since dresses this fall are basics
depending on peplums and tiered
skirt for line, you can express your
individuality with accessories-clever
bins, a befeatheed bonnet or an
enormous bag for tremendous trifles.-
And don't forget you've a round of
teas to attend-afternoons which en-
tail a lot of walking, so your feet
should be shod accordingly. At long
last manufacturers are really de-
signing medium heeled shoes that
. t ake even size 8's look tiny.
One of the rare occasions when
you need a hat in Ann Arbor is the
rushing tea, for you can attend the
series of desserts sans chapeaux.
Many of the sororities plan special
entertainment for these parties and
will ask you to dress accordingly.
'Otherwise a simple wool dress will
be .appropriate. If you attend a lun-
cheon before the Iowa' game, you can

Now that you've read this don't
rush out' and buy yourself a new
dress just because the little black
velveteen princess that you and the
salesgirl and your mother all agreed
was just the thing hasn't been men-
tioned above. Wear it with the tricky
hat that ,'sits back on your head and
has a swoosh of veiling and remem-
ber to glance in your purse mirror
before your start up the walk to be
greeted by the welcoming commit-
tee. See that it's on at just the
right angle with no wispy locks out
of place, that the shine is off your
nose, that your stocking seams are
straight. Then walk up the path
with a smile for the benefit of the
sisters and the assurance that you
possess that "well-groomed look."


Campus Women W

r e rw c

Perfect for those important rush-
ing teas and for campus dates is
this sheer wool with its elbow-
length sleeves and classic neckline.
High Neckline
Trend Is Seen
For Formalis
A !letter came our way the other
day in which a prospective Michigan
student inquired about formals.
"How many would be an adequate
number?" she wanted to know. That's
a difficult question to answer as it
depends not only on where you go of
a Friday or Saturday night but also
with whom you go.
The more variety in men, the few-
er formals you'll have to have, so
don't unbalance your' budget too
drastically by limiting the number
of swains right at the beginning of
your college career.
The formal dinners at the end of
rushing don't mean that you have to
wear strictly dinner dresses. Any
sort of a formal will do, but of course
sleeves are the new note in evening
dress. Short, three-quarter, and
wrist-length ones carry out the trend
toward covered arms even for the
most formal of balls.
Chgllis basques with the fullest of
black velveteen skirt ~or hug-me-
tight jackets that cover low-cut
necklines and bare shoulders are
practical for campus dances, since
many of them entail dinner parties
Fur coats can be worn over formals
when you dash from taxis to the side
door of the Union or you can indulge
in pastel tweed evening coats
trimmed with gold applique or fur-
warm and practical, and striking
when worn in perhaps bright red
over a black formal.
White kid gloves are traditionally
correct for evening, but we bet you'd
rather break tradition than freeze
your hands. So here's a tip: get a
pair of quilted satin mitts. They
come in all colors and are guaranteed
to prevent numb fingers.
Another tip regards your feet. If
you've accepted a blind date and you
don't know whether he's over five
feet six or not, then play safe with a
pair of evening shoes made on the
same last as the playshoes you lived
in this summer.

League Paper To Give
Points On Activities
Upperclassmen as well as freshnen
will this year welcome a League
House-Committee publication illum-
inating the intricacies of League ac-
tivities. In the form of a monthly
newspaper replacing the "What's Up",
of last year, old and new regulations
will be clarified, and additional jour-
nalistic features offered by Jeanne
Crump, '42, editor, and Dorothy Mer-
ki, '42, committee head.
Interviewing dates are to be an-
nounced for all League and project
positions, with explaniations and sug-
gestions for petitions. Special em-
phasis will be laid, on clarifying class
projects, with editorial commentaries
on the significance of League activi-
ties. Lighter touches are to be fur-
nished by small drawings, and a
feature column by Miss Crump.
No experience is required of staff
members, Miss Crump announced,
and they will participate in the pub-
lication according to their interests.

The rough-and-ready-date is the picnic or

Fbr the male element we have only one bit of clothes advice. Get out
your camel's hair jacket and wear it constantly-even to bed. It's all we've
seen on men in Ann Arbor, and from a purely feminine point of view, we'd
say you can't go wrong on a camel's hair jacket anyivhere. Show your
college sophistication by just glueing it on your back and saving the bother
of taking it off and putting it back on again. Accessories include a thick
Mississippi River gambler-type watch chain to twirl as you stand in front
of the Parrot with the rest of the freshmen and at least two pairs of
trousers which come no lower than to the middle of your calf; it saves
the bother of turning them up in the accepted Joseph College fashion.
