Spring Gloves To Display Great
Variety InFabrics And Styles

Bright Pumps.




Gloves, a small but important part
of. a. complete wardrobe, should be an
item on the spring clothes budget.
Appropriate gloves for every occa-
sion are significant features of a
well-dressed woman.
White suede is considered the per-
fect glove for the Easter Sunday
Parade. These may be short and
handsewn, but of conservative de-
sign. A feminine and popular pull-
on is made distinctive by- short lines
of handstitching across the back.
Eyelet Trimming Featured
One dainty, handsewn shortie is
extremely plain, with the exception
of eyelet trimming along the edge.
The new tapered wrist is a fashion
note, and may be found in a con-
servative pull-on.
Returning to suede, this material
is used in a smart, short glove with'
brief fringe around your wrist.
If one is seeking a good invest-
ment, this may be found in a pair
of deerskin gloves. Rugged, hand-
some, and long-wearing, they will fit
in with either sport tweeds or that
new dressmaker, spring suit, behav-
ing nicely with both. Cut longer'
than the average glove, they will con-
tribute an air of smartness to either
Whipstitch Is New
Double-woven cotton gloves have
found their place in the fashion sun'
when dressed up by the new whip-
stitch. For more dressy occasions,
shorties distinguished by a wrist bow
would be the answer. Fashioned in
suede or cotton these would be equal-
ly effective.
The king of glove fabrics, doeskin,
still reigns supreme. For morning,

noon, or night, designs may be found
in this material. For morning, the
short. handsewn slipon is perfect.
For daytime, the smart four-button
length is the answer. And for dress-
up elegance in the evening, the eight-
button length is worn by well-dressed
women everywhere. This latter style
may be found in every conceivable
shade to exactly match, or perfectly
contrast with that new spring formal.
These are often worn with dancing
dresses to give that covered-up look.
Completing the glove wardrobe, a
well-fashioned, serviceable pair of
pigskins are necessary. For riding,
golfing, or hiking these will answer
your' problem.
Spring Is Reflected
In Floral Perfumes
Spring, soft breezes, light floral
perfumes-that's what the weather-
man has ordered for the next few
This spring you can match your
favorite scent in perfume, cologne,
bath powder, sachets, lipsticks, and
even soap! And these scents are
more true-to-the-flowers than ever
before. /
We have it straight from the Easter
Bunny that some of his pastel eggs
are going to contain saucy scented
perfumes, for more and more toiletry
manufacturers are putting up their
products in packages shaped to sug-
gest the season or holiday or name
of the scent.

Sring Prints
Red alligator calf pumps for your
suits, red suede pumps for your
bright prints, and red ballet slippers
just for fun are appearing on many
dressed-up feet this spring. How-
ever they require pretty ankles and
legs, so if your face is your fortune,
better steer clear.
Navy blue alligator pumps with
little flat bows and square low heels
are perfect for suits and dresses.
The low heels are a blessing for all
tall women. This is the kind of shoe
that can be worn with everything,
so is practical as well as charm-
Spectators are still favorites among
college women everywhere. Several
new versions include a natural linen
with brown heel and toe, and an all
navy pair of gabardine and kid. The
white ones withbrown,bnavy, or
black heels and toes can be worn all
summer long as well as through
The new shoes with the elevated
soles and wide, high heels are fine
for those 5 foot 3 incheseandrunder,
but not for anyone taller unless she
has been lucky enough to capture a
young giant. They add a full inch
and a half to one's height so unless
you're wee, better resist them.
Spring is here tra-la, but the bright
sun certainly makes those clothes
you've worn all winter look wrinkled
and dingy. For that tired reefer you
can go buy yourself a remnant of
dizzy plaid, make a new collar and
have the buttons covered to match.

Pastel WooIs,
Large Flowers
Are Featured
Classic navy blues, prints, and tiny
black and white checks are three im-
portant highlights in afternoon dress-
es this season.
The peasant influence is definite-
ly most popular in the printed styles.
Huge flower block prints or em-
broidered ones set sparingly on plain
backgrounds are the newest addition
to dressy styles. Besides these there
are loads of tiny flowered prints in
the spring fashion parade.
Have Long Look
Most of the prints have that long
look which seems destined to stay,
and tiny waist-lines which do won-
ders for the figure. Elbow-length{
sleeves seem to be a characteristic of
all the prints, and many have bloused
tops. The printed silk with long wool
or flannel jacket to match is in again
this season, and makes a smart out-'
fit for any occasion, as it can be
worn with or without the jacket.
Something new is the one color
large print on a white background
which has a turban and pouch bag
with a wooden handle to match. Per-
haps, the most stunning thing this
season is the combination of print
top and plain skirt or vice-versa.
Many of these are styled with the
new bell-shaped skirt.
Lace Decorates
Touches of red, and white starched1
and lingerie lace decorate the classic
navy blue silks this spring. Military
touches on navy blues are more subtle
this year, as they're evident in the
cut of the outfit or combination of'
colors rather than in navy or army
Plain tailored and pastel things are .
still on the racks this season, and
warm any college woman's heart.
Some styled in silk have shirtwaist
tops with long hip lines ending in
accordion pleats. The light pastel
wools come in beautiful shades of
aqua, beige, chocolate, yellow, and
dusty rose. These are styled with
buttons all the way down the front,
and several unpressed pleats. Plaids
and stripes are seen in these pastels
many of which have long full-length
sleeves, and natural colored leather
Gabardine Featured
One beautiful dress which was for-
merly made by an English company,
is now put out by an American con-
cern. It's fashioned of gabardine in
lovely pastels, and the lines of the
dress are smoothly tailored. It has
a fly front, narrow skirt, casual open
neckline and one top pocket. Tiy
fine saddle stitching can be detected
as a bit of decoratiot, and the dress
is completed with a reptile saddle'
leather belt.'
Black and white checks are im-
Perfume is Found
In Powder Forma
If you have tired of perfumes and
colognes in the usual form, you can
buy them as solids or powders. Solids
come in stick form and powder sa-
chets are pretty and handy. Inci-
dentally, the stores are selling lots of
sachets for lingerie, too.
Hand lotion and perfumes are be-
ing combined in popular floral scents
and even foundation oils carry out
the scent theme, but if you want to
add spring atmosphere to you and
your belongings on a large scale, youi
can burn a perfumed candle lamp
which gently perfumes your room.

Look Fetching Gals

With spring in the air and with
young men's fancies rapidly turningi
to other channels it's time for Michi-
gan women to inject a bit of life
into their well-worn winfer ward-
It's going to take more than sun-
shine to brighten the aver:e class-
room, and the gay pastels of the new
spring wools will go far towards
attaining that end. No girl needs to
ce told to do spring shopping, but
everyone can use a few suggestions
as to what to look for.
Dolman Sleeves Are In
Each season sweaters seem to be-
come more and more desirable, so
that whether a girl has five or fif-
teen she can always find room for
more. This spring will be marked
as history-making, for the classic
cardigan has been combined with
cVulman sleeves to make a sweater
that will be a MUST in every ward-
robe. This carefully tailored cardi-
fan made of wool jersey has the full
effect that every college girl loves:
Nubby knits are still in the spot-
light, lucious enough in the new col-
ors to make your mouth water. Gold,
icc -blue, turquoise and sand are a
few of the shades which will be popu-
lar this spring. Another novelty wool
is featured \n the "oatmeal sweat-

Color Emphasized
Skirts are again made to mix or
match. or to contrast completely with
a plaid. Fashion emphasizes color
this year, and that's what you'll find
in the new light weight skirts so
perfect for the forthcoming warm
GCather. Finch aqua, parakeet
green, canary yellow. pelican pink,
and plum are terms which very
aptly describe the briglit new shades.
Classic grey menswear flannels-
slacks, skirts and jackets-perennial
favorites of the college woman, again
come to the front this year. These
hardy, casual suits are able to stand
the wear due to them and still re-
tain their lasting smartness.
News of the straighter, peg-top
skirts may not be too welcome to the
conservative Josephine College. Wrap-
arounds are reported as coming in
with side-saddle suit-skirts - un-
doubtedly to save wool for defense.
Sixty paltry pennies will buy you
real protection from Ann Arbor wea-
ther and it's postpaid too. Just look
for a place to buy or send for the
new synthetic rubbers. They come
in cheery little polka-dot oiled silk
envelopes and can be carried in your

portant this season, and are seen in
complete dresses or skirts with plain
jackets. Checked gloves and hats
are very smart with these dresses.
One of the smartest dresses in this
line is a two-piece outfit. The top
is a red wool jersey jacket with big
white pearl buttons and a white
dicky. The skirt is a black and white
tiny check of heavy rayon.
In general peplums, redingotes and
draped effects run through all the
spring styles. One smart ensemble
is the navy blue crepe dress with
long princess style redingote in red.
Both the coat and dress may be worn
separately, and the coat can easily
be used with other dresses.
Bring Out Stuffed
Animpals And Dolls
For College Room
Gone are the days when college
women flaunted an all-American se-
ries of college pennants, donated by
far-flung collegiate beaux, to dazzle
her sorority sisters or dormitory
neighbors. Into the ash can with
pennants go beer mugs as an aid to
room decorations.
But dust off your stuffed animals
and dolls of your younger days and
adorntyour book shelves and beds
with these new additions. Maybe a
gentle hint to the boy friend will
afford you one of those brand new
surrealistic ones.
Bedspreads with matching drapes
are practically a campus "must." Col-
lege men, too, buy these matching
outfits for their rooms, and interest-"
ingly enough a survey proved that
men showed practical streaks through
their choice of the darker shades,
while the girls usually choose the
lighter, gayer and more easily soiled
For that extra pin to dress up a
suit or accent a dress a sterling-sil-
ver orchid would be equally at home
on either outfit. Since this is as
close as most of us will come to the
real thing for many-a-day, wear it
with a gleam in your eye,
