Brighten Landscape With Frost-Fooling
Sports Outfits Of Fleecy, Warm Materials

Wool Ski Suits
To Buck Blasts
Brass Buttons, Double-Breasted
Effect Shows Military Trend
"The cold wind doth blow and we
shall have snow"-and what will poor
coed do then? That isn't so hard to
answer. Why, don her warmest
clothes and nakethe best of the icy
blasts and snow. The Michigan col-
lege girl is used to good cold weather
and disappointed if there isn't snow.
She'll get out .her ski suit (bright
colors, if you please) and have her-
self a time playing in the snow. Gab-
ardine and wool seem to do the best
job in keeping the cold out. Ski suits
this year follow the military trend-
but definitely-brass buttons, the
double-breasted effect, and a hat
like the captain's. Bright blues, reds,
yellows and greens are used to accent
the outfits.
Short Skirts For Skating
Maybe you prefer skating to ski-
ing even though the falls are harder
to take. If so you'll trek down to
the pond in a bright-colored skating
skirt and jacket. Little-girlish, to be
sure, but we're betting that while
you're cutting those figure eights
you'll receive more than one look of
There's nothing like the new fluffy
wool jackets and coats with bright
red and green linings to keep you
warm on those afternoon or evening
hikes. It's fun to hear the snow and
ice crunching under your feet, but
it's more fun to be good and warm
while you hear it.
"Red Flannels" Practical
Heavy flannel shirts are probably
the best solution as to what to wear
under winter clothes. You'll most
likely want to drag out your red
flannels, too, because some way or
other the day gets colder and colder
the longer you stay out. Yet, it's
fun to be out-of-doors, but it feels
good to come back in and get warm
again and feel your face, hands, and

Mittens Make
Useful Present
Fur, Gabardine And Lambskin
Mean Warm Hands In Winter
There is no better Christmas gift
than mittens and caps to keep you
warm for winter sports and ordinary
wear outdoors.
Mittens offer the most room for
imagination and originality. Woolen
ones knit in circus stripes look very
gay on one of those dreary trips to an
eight o'clock class. Or you might try
them in an Indian design for some-
thing really different.
There are also woolen knit mittens
that have little zipper pockets on the
back of each glove. This type is dis-
played in contrasting colors-bright
red mittens with medium blue dia-
mond-shaped pockets.
Fur Mittens Warmest
If one wishes to emphasize pretti-
ness rather than gayety, there are the
usual fluffy mittens. White bunny
fur ones look very soft and feminine--
as long as they are clean. For ordi
nary campus wear natural bunny fur
mittens are often seen. Fur has the
advantage not only because of its
appearance but also because it is very
warm. Mittens in a very fluffy lamb's
fur are also very practical for that
For heavy winter sports such as ski-
ing and tobagganing, there are bright
colored gabardine mittens with lea-
ther palms. This type has elastic at
the top and at the wrist to be sure
that the snow and wind are kept out.
For extra warmth they are lined with
flannel. Gabardine ski caps with vi-
sors can be had to match these mit-
Lambskin forgSkiing
Another kind of glove that will real-
ly take the snow is the type, often dis-
played also for men, that is made of
lambskin with the fleece turned in.
This kind is probably the best from
the standpoint of durability.
For the head, babushkas with a
drawstring around the neck to pull
the scarf tighter are new. Some of
these babushkas have pompoms on
top for decoration. Sonja Henie "baby
I caps" look nice and do a neat job of
keeping the ears warm. Or if you real-
ly want to show your contempt of the
weather, old fashioned ear muffs will
serve the purpose.
Many of these woolen breeze-scar-
ers can be made at home. It might be
a good idea to look around for old
moth-eaten sweaters to be remade
into bright, warm scarfs, mittens and
caps. Conservation of precious wool
and keeping healthy by not getting
cold are two of our patriotic duties
For Extra Warmth
Your sister would love a pair of
bunny-fur mittens to show off to
her school friends. They're all beige
and white and silky; her hands would
be warm as toast all winter. In fact,
you'll like them so much you'll want
to wear them yourself.

Different Gifts
Can Be Found
In Paper Sacks
The last word from Washington
suggests that Christmas shoppers
start digging into the paper pile for1
novel presents. Practical housekeep-
ing will now include the use of card-
board dust pans, cardboard waste
baskets and cardboard trays.
What's more, fancy coat hangers
will also be made of cardboard and
covered with colored cloth. In of-
fices, strong but lightweight filing
cabinets will be constructed of con-
ditioned paper instead of pre-war
steel. In workshops todls will all
bear handles of non-priority plastic.
Thus practical Christmas presents
will now run along paper lines rath-
er than in other modes.

Red Flannels Are Still Tops In Fashion;
Newest Lingerie Emphasizes Comfort

Are you wondering what to give
that roommate of yours for Christ-
mas? One thing no girl can have too
much of is lingerie, and some of the
novel ideas that have come back into
style today are sure to capture her
The keynote of lingerie this year
is warmth. Manufacturers are going
to grandma's day for-ideas that will
keep the modern generation warm at
the reduced temperatures necessitated
by the war effort today.
Slips of aralac, brushed rayon and
other new materials have come to
the fashion fore. They come in
bright stripes, gay plaids, and dainty
flower designs. They will not only
keep you warm through the coldest

of the winter breezes but are abso-
lutely shadow-proof.
"Red Flannels" are back again in
new and improved versions. They
are obtainable not only in all colors
of the rainbow but also in all shapes
and sizes. Some are designed with a
seam up the back of the leg to ,re-
semble stockings, others are meant
to be worn under your skating skirt
or your slacks. Vests and other warm
undergarments are becoming increas-
ingly popular for classroom and cam-
pus wear.
The ideal thing for studying in
bed is one of the new bedjackets.
They come in all colors and types
from the most dainty with lace in-
set and frills to the good old plaid
flafnel shirt you swiped from your
boy friend.-

Coeds Reluctantly
Relinq'uish Nylons
For Scorned Lisle
This year it's mesh silk, rayon mesh,
isle mesh, lisle and, of course, plain
rayons for the legs. Perhaps these
are not as enticing as the well remem-
bered silks and nylons, but we have
to admit they're more sensible and
definitely more durable.
It all started when a Japanese bomb
suddenly dropped on a small Hawai-
ian harbor way back sometime last
December, yet in the short space of a
year, we have accustomed ourselves
to shortages of all kinds, to syntheti-
cally-made materials, fewer clothes
and to the once scorned cotton stock-
Not only has lisle mesh had its grip
on the bloom of American woman-
hood, but so has a brand new shade
of hose for dress wear. It's almost
opaque, dark, feminine, and very slen-

Shoe Fashions
Bow To Rules
Of War Board
Shoes are just beginning to show
the effects of war restrictions. Two-
tone shoes are getting scarcer, and
leather soles and heels are gettinga
more plentiful. In spite of this, how-
aver, the college girl still has plenty
to choose from, including new styles
designed to meet the present condi-
The loafer is still a winner, and is
now made in a great variety of styles
and colors. If you're the casual kind
and like to slide down the corridor,
loafers are for you.
In the shop windows we see many
pumps; classic spectators, smooth al-
ligator styles, and trick jobs in pol-
ished calf. A popular shoe is the plain
pump with walled toe and pert little
bow. This is seen in suede with gros-
grain or suede bow, and calf with a
matching bow. They come in Dutch-
boy heels to please the U. of M. coed
who wants to wear something com-
fortable when she tours the campus.
She also will be delighted with the
good looking platformed spectators
with squared-off toes.
For the girl who clings to her spike
heels, there are alligator pumps in
brown or black, very eye-catching,
and gorgeous with her wool date dres-
