Perfume Now
Comes In Pins,
Candles, Sticks
It's fun to get perfume for Christ-
mas, for all the college woman's fav-
orites come in gay holiday guises rem-
iniscent of the days when Christmas
was the most important day in ,thel
Every girl likes clever little figures
to put on her dressing table, and one
house takes cognizance of this by
putting out a little' white plaster of
paris angel gazing beautifically at a
vial of perfume which she holds in
her arms. This same firm also uses
a jaunty head of the season's patron
saint as a cap for other bottles.
Perfume In Stockings
It's been years since the college gal
carefully hung her stocking by the
chimney for Santa to fill, but stock-
ings still hold grand gifts for her.
There is a tiny red one containing
a diminutive bottle of perfume that
comes in a holly-topped cellophane
However, stocking filling wasn't
Santa's only mission, he used to
bring fascinating gifts such as the
hobby horse. This hobby horse is
back again, but now he is a mere
shadow of his forner self and carries
a bottle of cologne on his back. An-
other attractive figure is the armored
man who has a bottle of perfume con-
cealed in his chest.
Candles Are Unique
Flowers at Christmas time always
mean the vivid poinsetta which has
a special fragrance this year because
small perfume bottles have replaced
its regular buds. Candles also have
a special place at Christmas time but
are not always used for lighting pur-
This is illustrated by the glass one
which is used as a bottle for one of
the best sellers in the perfume field.
The candle is in a glass holdet, which
*ooks like the one that used to be
in the front parlor, and is made even
more realistic by having a red glass
flame at its tip. Even the shiny blue,
green and silver balls °that hang 'on
the tree have been transformed into
containers for the holiday perfume
Also Sticks And Pins
The newest quirks in the perfume
field are the perfume sticks and pins.
The latter consists of a glass globule
with a stopper, attached to a long
pin,resembling a corsage pin, and
can be worn in the lapel of one's best
suit. The perfume sticks are in a con-
tainer like that of a lipstick but have
colors unlike those of the lipsticks
for they are pale pink, green or blue,
depending upon your fragrance.
So in the frantic search for a
unique Christmas gift, don't overlook
the potentialities of the perfume

'Hats For Beaut
In Styling Of
If there is anything a college wo-
.pan can buy for beauty rather than
practicality, it's a hat. This is be-
cause collegiate casualness which de-
mands flying locks or babushkas for
every day, allows all sorts of novel and
beguiling styles for sports and dress-
up. And so here are several snappy
ideas for the gal who wants not only
a bright touch for her date dress,
but an eye-catcher to wear on an out-
door date.
One of this year's most interesting
styles in sport felts is the sombrero-
modified, of course. It is tied under
the chin with rawhide thongs and
worn mainly with suits, sport coats
and rubber cowboy boots. In the same
category comes the off-the-face
"Yankee Doodle" made for little girls
who insist on weaningpompadours
instead of long bobs. And of course
the Tyrolean hat with the badger
brush and trinkets pinned on the1
crown must not be omitted.
Pin Cushion Beanie
More flashy tricks can be included
in the sport wardrobe too. There is
the tomato pin cushion beanie just
made for Michigan "brains" to pin'

their honor society pins on. The Eton
cap, the highland bonnet and the
gabardine overseas cap are fine head-
gear with your polo coat, while heads
will turn your way if you show up in
your fur coat wearing a striped stock-
ing cap.
However, the sports hats and caps

' Are Found




1k Lingerie

Present Season

are not the only flip note on the
fashionhorizon this year. The calot
and the dressy little peasant pill-box,
first introduced by the Duchess of
Windsor, are excegingly popular this
winter. The pill-box is especially ap-
propriate for Christmas, being of
white felt with bright red and green
appliqued designs, while the calot
greets Old Man Winter with a large
fluffy snowball attached to the brim.
Chanticleer Pill-Box
Other variations of these two styles
are the Chanticleer pill-box of red
belting and ribbon plumage, ,and the
bonnet with a ruffle on the front.
They are youthful and charming, and,
as you have no doubt noticed, partic-
ularly adapted to the pompadour
hair-do, because they are worn on the
back of the head.
Although the cloche hat is rather
extreme for college wear, it may well
be to mention one of its simpler styles
being sold that has a small childish
brim, calculated to make the wearer
look pleasingly fresh and naive.
Tl iese are some of the many sug-
gestions for winter headgear on gala
occasions. They're small and sweet
and becoming, but when Old Boreas,
the -northwest wind that brings
storms, goes sweeping down the diag-
onal, you'd better wear your ker-
Wallets Are Practical
For women who dislike carrying
bulky purses to class, the manufac-
turers have taken the hint from the
gentlemen and have designed femin-
ized wallets of soft calfskin and other
leathers. These billfolds come in var-
ious colors.
There are separate pockets for bills,
change, identification, apd activity
bards and memoranda. There is also
a sectet hideaway for special papers
and large bills.


First Honors
In Style Parade
Classic Cardigan Holds Own
As Designers Draft Jerkins C
For Dancing, Campus, Or Classc
"Tonight We Love" may have been
first on the hit parade but we nom-
inate sweaters for -top honors on oura
holiday fashion parade.k
If you desire to be a carbon copyU
of "Sweet Varsity Sue" this Christ-b
mas vacation the new "pig tail" swea-
ter is designed to do the trick. A
loose sloppy cardigan, the sweater
comes with two matching bows to tied
around those very, very collegiate pig!
Shetland Argyles
Another new idea is a sleeveless,
blended Shetland Argyle sweater overt
a turtle-neck one of sof cashmere.r
Not only will this contitute to the
college girl motif, but it's just the
ticket for those cold, snowy days when
he "Takes You Out To the Ball

must be spent in doing the necessarys
purchasing of gifts because as every-
one knows "Santa Claus is Coming
to Town." Wear a knitted variation
of the blazer in baby blue, cable
stitched Shetland, piped in blackr
while shopping for those gifts for
"Mother" and "Daddy."C
Shopping Ensembles
Another good idea for a shopping?
ensemble is to wear over a simple
black pullover a very bright coloreda
V neck jerkin fitted at the waist.
The newest in sweaters for shopping
are chic pullovers of wool-and-rab-
bit-hair, diamond plaided in brights
It's "Tea for Two" time on our holi-t
day fashion parade and our fair dam-t
sel dresses for the occasion in a smart
classic, long torso sweater of blackA
Shetland worn with the slimmest of
black skirts, the sleeves and back-yoke
of the sweater are all ribbed.
Sweater For Dancing
Another very appropriate sweater
f6r dancing is a long-sleeved open
neck and very sophisticated black
sweater of brushed wool. Dress it up;
with two bright jeweled clips and a
skirt of that very popular magenta
shade. If you abandon tea and decide
to start "Sippin' Cider Through a
Straw" at your favorite drug store
bwear a loose knit, cable stitched swea-
ter that could go over an open-throat
white shirt.
Christmas time is the time for
skating, skiing and sledding. Breeze
along to the tine of "The Skater's
Waltz" in a bright red velvet skirt
topped with a gray and red striped
wool sweater with a matching stock-
ing cap that's long enough to form a
Attached Knit Helmet
A heavy knit red and white sweater
with a snug red knit helmet attached
is just the thing for sledding. You'll
have him saying "You Are My ,Sun-
shine" when he sees you at the skat-3
ing rink wearing a white, gaily em-
broidered Tyroleon sweater over a
navy whipcord skirt.
Fashion dictates that sweaters are3
the seasons sensation for evening.
When sipping "Blue Champagne"
wear over your plain black dinner
dress a pink basic cashmere sweater3
with pearls or bobbles of gold at the
neck. A basic black sweater for
"Dancing in the Dark" is an essential.
This black sweater embroidered at'
the neck and on one wrist with tiny
seed pears is a must with a blue wool
evening skirt.
Odds And Ends

Gi*ve Useful
Fashion Hints
Dickeys to the college girl connote,
immediately, a sport outfit of a swea-
ter and skirt, but now these most con-
venient collars may be obtained in
dressier styles to wear under silks or
One attractive model is for a V-
neck dress and is made of white pique.
There is about one inch of crisp lace
around the edge, giving a new, fresh
appearance to any dress.
* * *
The fashion cycle is forever turn-
ing and the most notable changes
are seen this year in evening wear.
The new ankle-length evening dress
is probably causing the most com-
ment but one of tulle worn with only
a knee-length slip will undoubtedly
turn even more eyes.
No longer is it necessary to own a
long dinner dress. A very dressy, se-
quin or gold embroidered black after-
noon dress is now considered entirely
appropriate for dinner wear.
Did you know that: Christmas is
one holiday celebrated all over the
world? There is a town named Santa
Claus in the U. S.? The origin of the
abbreviation Xmas comes from the
Greek-the Greek X being equivalent
to our Ch? St. Nicholas is the patron
Saint of children?
