Success Formula for Easter Lies

In Suits; Cheeke4
What with the advent of spring
and warm balmy weather the coed's
first thought is of what to wear on
Easter morning. This year the order
of the day will be suits and more
Despite wartime restrictions this
year's suits will not take a backsea
to those pictured in yesteryear'
fashion magazines. Manufacturers
have taxed their ingenuity to the
limit and have placed on the marke
a dozen different styles in plaids
checks and solid colors in both tai-
lored and dressy models.
The best bet for any coed and one
that neatly solves the problem of a
new spring coat is the three-piece
suit. The coat can be worn ove
other outfits and still maintain it
New Collarless Suits
The new collarless suit is offered
in various materials and is especially
smart in gabardine. These suits ar
not limited in color and are avail
able in a wide array of lush pastel
including yellow, blue, violet and th
new shade shocking pink.
For those who want to get awa
from the tailored look there are the
new dressy suits, truly feminine i
every detail. The long, hip-length
jacket is forsaken for the shorte
jacket and with shirred detail on
the shoulders and at the waist thi
type of suit can be worn for ay
occasion. The buttons on this typ
of suit are truly unusual. Jeweled
buttons, painted buttons and others
in all sizes and shapes make the out
fit unusual and provide a pleasan
change for - the coed whose close
contains plain, tailored suits.
Another innovation this Spring i
the weskit suit. A straight skir
topped by a short sleeveless jacke
Sweaters Continue
To Be Universal
Favorites of Coed
The universal fondness for sweat
ers has recently developed into thei
adoption for year - round wear
whether for protection from chil
winter winds or damp spring breezes
Now is the time, especially for th
college girls, to rejuvenate your as
sorted selection of washed-out, bagg
sweaters. The advent of Easter an
spring is enough to make anyon
long for a change in wardrobe, an
the colors in which the sweaters ma
be had reflect the gay mood o:
Such new Easter colors as water
melon red, mint green, lilac, an
Chinese blue lead the choice fo
something different and refreshin
in the way of color. Spring seem
to bring out the bright-color com
plex in everyone, and that feeling i
even more prevalent in ,.this third
war-time spring.
Again, sweaters are being worn no
only for sport, but for dress and eve
ning wear as well. The latest rag
for cap-sleeves has been carried ou
in the more formal styles, with dif
ferent necklines adding a new touch
too. One of the most popular of thes
necklines is the once-sporty "crew'
neck. Other formal sweaters a
being worn with the new short eve
ning skirts.

d. Plaid Solid
in either a matching or contrasting
shade would rate high on any list
of smart clothes. Worn with either
a tailored blouse or one of the fancier
types this is a good outfit for casual
ewear. The jacket is a replica of the
regular men's vest and can be worn
either buttoned or unbuttoned.
t That Well-Tailored Look
s For those who still desire the old
standby of a good tailored suit there
are some very nice ones in almost any1
t material. Saddle stitching aroundt
the collar and down the front of the
suit makes a particularlyrattractive
outfit with that well-tailored look.
e The jackets are found irn either the
a traditional three-button style withj
lapels or the jacket with the cardigan
r effect.
s A spring suit is a must for any,
coed. It can be worn through spring,
and on into the summer months.
I They can be worn for seasons to
S come and by changing the buttons
e or piping the jacket in a contrasting
- color what was this year's new suit
s can also serve for next year.;

y Stamp-Free;
Shoes Are Easy
s On Eyes, Feet
y The unrationed shoe-that godsend
eto the American woman, besides ful-
filling her desire to purchase more
ithan theallotted two pairs per year,
- is helping her uphold the reputation
t that American women have the pret-
tiest feet in the world.
Since rationing, nearly every woman
t has been faced with the problem of
,"Is this pair of shoes worth one of
_my stamps, or should I buy some-
thing which is more sensible and
which will wear longer?". Common
sense tells her the answer, yet there
is something within her that makes
her buy the frivolous shoe, that will,
look so nice with her short-sleeved
dress, and then to talk dad or broth-
- er out of buying a new pair of shoes
r so that she can use his stamp for
a pair of really good ones.
l The ration-free shoe solves the
problem, ,making available many
e styles in many colors without the,
- need of giving up that precious stamp.
Y These shoes are for the most part in-,
d expensive, and the soles of rope,
e wood, felt or fabric, have been tested
d and proved to give good wear.
y Flattering new styles, suitable for
f play and dress appear daily in the,
shop windows. Among them are
- white sling pumps with colored plas-
d tic soles, gabardine-topped espad-
r rilles with ribbed hemp soles, multi-
g colored fabric shoes with baby ank-
s let strapsand rope soles, crossed;
- bands of gabardine with homasote
s soles, and wedge sling pumps dressed
d up with a bow or an ankle strap
and rope soles.
- If you are a fairly good knttier,
e you can probably qualify for owner-
t ship of a patchwork sweater. They're
- not only new, but they belong almost
, exclusively to those who "knit their
e own." Save all your scraps of yarn
" and knit them into squares to be
e sewn together. Or if you prefer, knit
- it like an argyle with blocks of any
shape and size.

Chintz, Cotton
Fo"rials Are
Moonlight and roses and formal
dances seem to be aiding Dan Cupid,
war or no war.
Dances mean dresses and dresses
mean dollars and since there is us-
ually a shortage of both (at least it
seems that way to a coed) let's be
practical about the whole thing.
Chintz, or cotton in other forms, is
the answer to the problem.
What could be lovelier than a
large skirt that crinkles and crackles
while you walk? You can match the
flowers your date isn't allowed to
send you by choosing a fanciful fab-
ric full of roses, daffodils, or blue
violets. You can find an off-the-
shoulder gown and be a belle from
the South (South University any-
Gingham checks in black and
white or blue and white will make
you cute and coy. Gingham trimmed
with white pique "couldn't be sweet-
er." Of course organdy is still the
ideal spring or summer evening dress
and red and white or yellow are the
most popular colors.
Dotted swiss with navy blue or red
background is something to consider
seriously. And if you're feeling in
especially fine form how about some-
thing in silk jersey.
Net and marquisette in white, pink
or blue are the sort of things we long
for but seldom find-well, the war
won't last forever. Make yourtmotto,
Bright and Beautiful, and pray some-
body gets a leave or furlough in time
for the big night.
Clever Compacts
Are Still Available
The wartime restrictions that have
been placed upon manufacturers
have forced them to drastically re-
duce the variety of compacts but
even so there are still some very nice
ones available that would gladden
the heart of any coed.
There is a flapjack type absolutely
tremendous which can carry the av-
erage woman's week supply of lip-
stick, powder, foundation cream,
mascara and anything else she might
need. Nothing nicer than one of
these with your name engraved in
huge sprawling letters on the top.
Perfect for a blackout or in movies
is the compact that, when opened,
lights up. With a compact like this
on the market there can never again
be a shiny nose. An absolute boon
to the emotional femmes who cry in
movies (and there are quite a few)
no longer will it be necessary to walk
out of the movies with a shiny nose
and tear stained face.
The newest thing in the line of
compacts are those made of shiny
glazed chintz fashioned like a pouch
with a drawstring. The mirror is on
the bottom and the bag itself is large
enough to hold the coed's favorite
cosmetics and possibly a book or two.

Coeds Choose Clothes
For Tennis, Riding
Palmer Field, the WAB, the Uni-
versity golf course, local riding sta-
bles, the arboretum and the island-
all will be kept busy as soon as warm
weather shows signs of "hanging
around" for awhile, and thus the de-
mand for suitable sports clothes
arises from campus coeds.
ISunday morning breakfasts at the
Island have been popular for years,
even more so since blue jeans and
plaid shirts came into their own.
Boots come in handy too if the
breakfasters contemplate any trial
excursions to the water's edge, be-
cause there is still plenty of mud in
plain sight.
Shorts for Tennis
Tennis clothes speak for them-
selves, all types of tennis dresses and
individual shorts and shirts being
the accepted costume on the tennis
court, with light weight slacks ap-
propiate for chilly days.
There isn't much anybody can do
about heavy riding boots for the
equestrienne, but light weightfriding
breeches and jodphurs are a welcome
relief to the heavier winter outfits.
Blouses, open at the neck, and wind-
breaker jackets are fine for Spring
rides, the latter being shed aftera
few minutes of "exercise" on the
Softball outfits bring out all sorts
of costumes, the consensus of opinion
being that all "hep" softball players
prefer shorts and shirts to jeans and
plaid shirts because of the strenuous
workout fly catchers usually have.
Slacks Prevent Sunburn
Hiking and outing costumes de-
pend on the weather, sunny days us-
ually requiring covering for the legs
if the outdoor girl wishes to avoid
the trouble arising from really seri-
ous sunburn.
Outdoor swimming overcomes the
necessity of wearing the regulation
cotton swimming suit required for
pool adherents, and all sorts of orig-
inality can be used this year, the
trend being toward plain colors rath-
er than huge splashy designs, this a
result of wartime saving of dyes.
Golfers Prefer Sport Dresses
Golf courses are usually devoid of
the coed's favorite summer costume,
shorts and blouses, because shirt
waist dresses and light weight slacks
come into their own in this field.
Archers, too, feel more at home in
shirtwaist dresses although other
costumes are not taboo. However,
golf and archery are sports in which
dresses do not hamper ability, and
other costumes can be saved for
sports that require greater freedom
of motion.
The facilities for plenty of sports
exercise are available, and so are the
clothes. All that is lacking is the
balmy Spring day which makes
everyone want to forget all about
bluebooks and term papers.
