-Hair.Styles Are'
Shorter, Need
More Primping
Since the "defense hair-cut" was
featured in one of the more popu-
lar weekly magazines, many short-
haired women have been seen dart-
ing hither and yon on the campus.
Not only the particular styles shown
in this magazine have been seen but
many variations of thisfashion are
manifesting themselves.
The philosophy behind the new
hair-do is to minimize the amount
of time and effort American women
h ave previously expended upon their
This is a fallacy however, accord-
ing to local hair dressers as well as
to actual guinea pigs for this new
experiment because they insist that
the Veronica Lake style takes much
less time in keeping trim. Short
hair requires an extreme amount of
time because constant curling as well
as trips to the barber are essential
to perpetuate the effect. It is also
generally believed that only those
with abundant natural curl can
weather the rains with little con-
Despite all of these obstacles hair
is getting shorter. Men will have to
forgive their "short-headed" friends
if they arekept waiting even long-
er, (if that is possible) because of
last minute primping.

Ut iity I n Su its Key Words, 'Bigger And Better,'
Is Emphasized Describe New Trend In Jew


* * :* * *

For Duration
Tailored Gabardines, Patterned
Tweeds Prove To Be Popular;
Bright Colors To Predominate
Suits are in the first rank this
spring because busy lives and war
sacrifices mean the necessity of a
realistic point of view in the matter
of clothes.
War means fewer materials for clo-
thing and less money to spend for
them. Fashion for the duration
will notsbe so flippant and variable
as it has been in the past and fads
are almost treason.
Investment in an expensive and
durable suit is a sound practice, for
it will be worn for a long time to
comeband for many occasions. The
best bet for this wardrobe mainstay
is a distinctive wool suit in classic
lines. A tailored gabardine or mono-
tone patterned tweed, with a well-
fitting jacket and comfortable skirt
is ideal.
Avoid Drabness
Suits that look like uniforms
should be avoided. There will be
enough of them in defense work and
the men in the armed forces will not
be apt to appreciate seeingcarbon
copies of themselves when they must
look at the same monotonous uni-
formity of style every day, anyway.
However, the old axiom of sticking
to the tried and true conservative
is more fitting than ever in choos-
ing a basic suit. Drabness can be
overcome by brilliant accessories.
Find 'Young' Suits
Not all suits are classic styles. This
spring ,more than ever, there are
many of those "extra" little suits that
dress up a wardrobe and raise your
spirits. You'll find them in soft
wools with young dirndl fronted
skirts, straight and long modified
peg-top skirts, and short tight fit-
ting or bolero jackets.
Bright colors predominiate, par-
rot green, sun yellow, cerise, blue and
white. And these are in novel fab-
rics because of the priorities on silk
and wool. A very ultra, ultra Easter
suit might be in moire or taffeta,
with a long slim skirt and a short
bolero jacket.
