Cosmetc Supply Equals Demand
In Spite Of Active Defense Board,

Although we are told that in the
future we may be wearing no make-
up, there is and will be for some time
a plentiful supply of every kind of
cosmetic on the market and we are
still faced with the ever prevailing
problem' of picking the kind of cos-
metic which will be best for our skin
and which will do the most for our
Q4ualifications of the manufactur-
er, smoothness of texture, and quali-
ty of ingredients are things to be
considered in buying cosmetics. There
are certain tests and general prin-
ciples which have been scientifically
established which will greatly help
in choosing the best face powder,
lipstick and rouge.
Test Powder
Good quality face powder can be
identified by its smoothness of tex-
ture, its evenness of color and the
way it looks when applied. Good
powder should lend the skin a smooth
finish so that it doesn't show as pow-
der. Powder can be tested by putting
a small mound of it on a piece of
paper and, pressing it hard with the
fingertips, streaking it.
If the thinned-out streak of powder
is grainy-looking, uneven in color,
it may go on the skin in a smudgy
patchy way. Powder is also much

Olarker in the box than when ap-
plied so care should be taken that
too light a color isn't purchased.
Lipstiek Should Soften
Lipstick should have softening
properties so that it spreads easily,
doesn't dry or crack the lips and
looks smooth. No lipstick is com-
pletely indelible and those which
profess to be so may cause irrita-
tion. Lipstick can be made more in-
delible by powdering lightly over the
lips after application.
Cream rouge and cake compact
rouge usually contain the same certi-
fied dyes and differ only in the
length of time they stay on. Cream
rouge has some of the near indelible
quality of lipstick colors, and so lasts
longer on the skin, and is better for
day-long make-up. Compact rouge
is blown or rubbed off more easily,
and must be more frequently re-
Scents Bath Water
Sold in a smart looking card-
board tube case is the new scented
sponge. The minute this article hits
the bath-tub water, it opens up and
lets forth your favorite scent. It
may be secured in some of the most
famous perfume odors. Lastly, this
article is made to fit in the palm of
the hand.

Spring Coats
Are In Pastels
And Vivid Reds
"Trench Coat" Has Casual Lines;
Reefer, Tweeds, Camel's Hair
Styles Are Popular This Season
If your last year's spring coat has
done a fade-out thus making it nec-
essary to add something new to your
wardrobe, you'll find that this sea-
son is offering a grand selection in
beautiful spring pastels and vivid,
distinctive reds.
A good example is the new swag-
ger style boy-coat. It has the wide
easy lines that make men's coats
so comfortable and suits can be worn
under it .without making the wearer,
feel as if she were modeling a strait
Has Set-In Belt
One of the most attractive war
styles is the "Trench Coat." This
makes a swell coat to knock about
in with its set-in belt, push-up
sleeves and casual, swinging lines.
Reefers still have an undeniable
undisputed place. If you want a
reefer and are tired of the button
all-the-way - down - the - front type,
why not invest in one of the smart
herringbone models which just has
two buttons placed horizontally at
the waist?
Of course, the tweeds, those long-
wearing stand-bys of so many college
women, always have a place in every
college woman's wardrobe. If you're
caught in one of those frequent
sr.ring rains, don't worry because a
sprinkling never has fazed one of
these good tweeds yet.
Remember Camel's Hair
Speaking of stand-bys, don't for-
get to look at the camel's hair styles.
For, as usual; they will play a promi-
nent part in the spring parade.
Soft pastel plaids also have a spe-
cial place in the favored list. It's
tun to match the pastels in your coat
with your new nubby pastel sweater
and it makes a smooth-looking out-
If you like a touch of the unusual
in your clothes, why not try one of
those white teddy bear. cloth coats?
They're new this year and have an
edging of bright-colored embroidered
flowers around the yoke. This coat
has the -full dolman sleeve which
ends at the elbow.
To Save Stockings
No need to worry any longer about
the Nylon stocking shortage. Well,
anyhow, here's one answer. Latest
outcome of national defense is the
tube stocking applier. This little af-
fair is supposed to make the legs look
clothed in the sheerest seamless hose.
It comes in a handy small tube, is
applied without water,

Gay Spring Cottons Exemplify
Spirit Of Patriotism, Rhumba

/ '
x: ..


Gayety with a vengeance seems the
byword for spring dresses, especial-
ly cotton ones. After all, something
is needed to keep up morale and1
nothing can do the job as well as
new clothes.
Since zippers, snaps, ornaments,
and other trimmings must be used
at a minimum, the wanted effect is
achieved primarily with fabric and
color. The majority of styles are
Patriotism Shows
Design is influenced by patriotic
fervor for America. Good old Amer-
ican plaids and stripes, perennially
in evidence in the summer, are back
again in full force in seersucker
suits and the favorite tailored shirt-
waist frocks of chambray and per-
cale. But even the tailored dresses
this season, have skirts with a full
circular swing.
Tropical islands make the front
pages/yin fashion news as well as in
the war news. One dress with a full
skirt, set-in waist band, and plain
blouse, is splashed with an enormous
print of palms, parrots and huge
flowers of the leis.
}North American Indian designs are
reflected in many vivid dresses.
Some of them are patchworks of more
colors than are contained in the rain-
bow and there are many different
colored blocks xll on one dress.
Rhumba Spirit
South American rhumba and tan-
go spirit is exemplified in cotton
Bracelets Are Vogue
Sweethearts and mothers alike find
a joy in small, silver bracelets. De-
signed to please are sterling-silver
bands which the Indians from New
Mexico make in the long evenings.
Milady can wear any number from
one to five, although this season it
is the vogue to wear quite a few of
them on either one or both wrists.
Among a group of girls living in
a dormitory or sorority house it is a
common thing to pool the silver trin-
kets owned by each person, and take
turns wearing the . whole jingling
mass to classes.

dresses with many frills and ruffles
on blouses, skirts, sleeves and full
swinging skirts. Prophesized as the
newest sensation, to succeed the
broomstick skirt, is the fiesta skirt.
It is made of bright calico, is very
full and fairly long, and has a wide
percale ruffle along the bottom,
caught up and over by a big percale
Everyone's time is precious and the
latest clothes take this into consider-
ation. The new timesaver dress, the
chemisier dress, and the belted tube
dress, are all one-piece. With no
trimmings, buttons, or fastenings,
they are easy and quick to get into.
Some are wrap-arounds or have
draped skirts. These will be found
in abundance this spring.

Latest Edition!

Pajama Favorites,
Are Newly Revised
With the coming of warm weather,
silky, sheer nightgowns are pretty
arid cool, but in college, pajamas
remain the perennial favorite. For
years college girls rolled up the legs,
so finally clothing manufacturers
caught on and now turn out sleep-
ing shorts. These are wonderful as
far as comfort is concerned and who
cares about appearances anyway?
A new reversible house coat with
terry cloth on one side and glazed
chintz on the other, works double
time. The terry cloth is soft as a
kitten and even your telephone ring-
ing while you're in the shower won't
be too irritating if you can slip into
this nice bath towelish material. The
chintz is slick and cool.

There used to be a set rule each
season for the length of skirts and
shorts. You looked funny if you didn't
follow it, and sometimes funnier if
you did. This season the only rule is
variety, and you can wear anything
that looks best and gives you vivid-
For one suggestion there is a flow-
ered sateen shorts ensemble knee-
length and slim with a glently flaring
skirt to go on top. Green acetate jer-
sey makes a graceful dirndl skirt and
you wear full peasantish batiste
blouses on top.
Sports Suit Suggestions
Another ensemble idea is a yellow
cotton print skirt coyly looped to
show a red cotton petticoat under-
neath. It's calf-length and has a
one-piece bathing suit to match. For
barn-dances an ankle-length black
cotton skirt with bright gingham
stripes around the bottom is pictur-
esque. Old-fashioned white blouses
and a cameo brooch are supposed to
be worn with Rt.
Incidentally black is the striking
color in sports this year. It's made up
into slim slacks with boleros and
bright printed blouses are worn with
it. Now shown also in big stores
are knee-length shorts of black syn-
thetic material and sun-flower print-
cotton blouses with a flattering gau-
cho collar.
Culottes Come Back
Culottes have made a fine come-
back for this summer, combining the
ease of trousers with the grace of a
skirt. They are worn in white shark-
skin with a red jersey blouse and
sash and strings of red and green
Playsuits are full of color and
verve. You may wear anything from
navy cotton knit shorts that come to
the middle of the thigh to long skirt-
like affairs and back to the very brief
romper suit. Copied straight from a
boxer's come gabardine shorts, and
they are accompanied by a multi-
colored short ballerina skirt-and-bra
bathing suit which can be dressed up
with a knee-length skirt and bolero
Other assorted suggestions are the
white cotton jumper over brown print
shorts and shirt, tapered spun rayon
slacks that zip down the sides, the
"vitamin" dirndl (backless), rhumba
frills on playsuit skirts, and a white
cotton utility jacket to go over all
your summer clothes.
Glasses Have Lost
Their Social Stigma
Time was when we gals would go
through almost anything to avoid
wearing our specs in public; we'd
reach for the mustard and come
back with the gravy, we smiled at
strangers and snubbed our friends-
oh, all by accident of course, and
just because we were embarrassed to
wear glasses.
Now, however, spectacles have lost
their stigma and they're seen at all
the best places. If you don't look
good in plain, old rimless ones, you
can't let that deter you. You can
get 'em to match your hair, your
eyes, your clothes, almost anything
They've lost their air of drab real-
They even occupy an enormous part
in the movies these days. Seems as
though they sort of indicate your
personality if you choose 'em right.
