How would you like a 'perspirator,
an exerciser, an electric toothbrush,
or a "laff library" for Christmas?
What about a pair of hand carved
rubber-tipped tongs to make it easier
to pick up-not blonds-but bobby
pins and butts? Have you bden pin-
ing for a thermometer with self-il-
lumination, a "tool shoo in your hand
with only 300 easy to change access-
ories," or 10 varieties of cheese in a
gaily wrapped gift package? Well this
year you may get any or all of them.
But don't let yourself be hustled
into the "It's better to give than to re-
ceive" faction without further deliber-
ation. Plenty of desirable jiggers are
on thE/market and you may be lucky.
Toilet articles for men (an ashtray
masquerades as one of them) are
coming into their own again, and
fancy shaving mugs which eventually
become containers for collar buttons,
studs and the like, are sure-fire gifts.
And there is a new razor which uses
any standard double-edged blade on
a vibrator principle. You wind up a
spring in the handle, the blade vi-
brates, and shaving becomes a plea-
sure. It's not nearly so precarious as
it sounds, and takes care of even the
toughest beard. Electric razors are
still going strong, and the new three
and four headed affairs (guaranteed
to bite nothing bit the whiskers) are
supposed to be the works.
Some enterprising manufacturers
have perfected a self-winding, water-
proof and shack-proof watch which
should be a blessing to a sportsman,
and others have added calendars to
the regular dials.

Trouser Hangers
Curved Three .Ways
To Benefit} Crease
The last student we saw before
press deadline looked like he had
been reclining on a washboard.
He wouldn't have looked like that
if somebody had given him a set of
practical coat-and-trouser hangers
to go with his Twiddleham tweeds.
A far cry from the bent wire knives
hangars fill too many closets, the new
hangars are curved three ways to fit
the student stoop.
They also include an attached pair
of grippers which hang onto your
trousers like a pair of suspenders
but with an even more beneficial ef-
fect on the crease.

cocktail ears, lucite coasters, glasses
and swizzle sticks are pretty good
choies. The latter are practically in-
destructible. There is also a ther-
mometer swizzle stick on the market
which tells you exactly how cold your
coke is.
Kit bags have been fashioned to
serve as the Army or Navy man's
Christmas stocking, and they come
filled with everything from toothpaste
to toffee. The emptied bags dan be
used as catch-alts, laundry bags, or
towels. Toilet kits that are construc-
ted' for rough use and sewing outfits
will prove valuable, while games to
keep the boys out of mischief are
widely advertised. ("How about a[
game of whist tonight, Sarge?")J
Pocket domino, chess, and cribbage
sets fall into that category.

Clock Presents
Practical Gift
Although we may all be hearing
bugles within the next six months,
an alarm clock is still one of the
most practical gifts to give a college
They come in all shapes, sizes, and
sounds. Some of them whisper, some
of them shout, and some just yell
like hell. The more genteel of the
species are equipped with two-tone
chimes and a silent mechanism.
The height of barbarism in this
field was reached with the introduc-
tion of the electric buzzer alarm,
still the best bet for Morpheus, '42.
When placed out of reach, it is as near
fool-proof as any man-made contriv-
ance yet invented.
To purchase a car in British Gui-
ana, a government permit is required.


For the one who enjoys the tang
of the wild and the thrill of the
chase found in those days in the
field, this slip-on sweater makes an
excellent gift.
