Swiss Watches Also
Make Good Presents;
Are of Fine Quality
By MARION SIPES
Glittering sparkling glamour-This
year's priority list should hold no ter-
rors for you if that is what you wish
in your gift for the special someone.
Precious metals combined with tal-
ented artesians are offering m'lady
jewels in the finest sense of the word.
Could Old John Silver but see the
wealth of his favorite metal being
shown now in the stores, he would
probably start a pirate movement in
the vicinity of Ann Arbor.
Gorgeous huge hand-wrought sil-
ver pins and clips are taking the
place of hard-to-get rhinestones. Sil-
ver is always smart looking as it's
hard to cheapen a piece of sterling.
Individual silver links, joined to-
gether to form a belt are among the
most exotic jewelry found this year.
It really is the answer to that present
for the woman who has everything.
Unless she's visited South America or
the Far East she will probably not
have one of these unique belts; and
anyone could use such a luxury piece
on the simple smooth dresses now be-.
Filigree Always Appeals
Men seem to take a particular de-..
light in picking out some perfectly
uninteresting piece of modern jewel-
ry and giving it in all good faith that
it's just what she's always wanted.
They won't be taking a chance, how-
ever, to give any silver filigree. It's
hard to find, but a few "old world"
shops in Ann Arbor have some fra-
gile filigree bracelets. They are so
beautifully done one would never
guess how inexpensive they are.
The watch industry almost fell in
a mud puddle and came out with a
new suit of clothes when the Ameri-
can industries converted fron "lady's
watches" to precision instruments.
Although there are still a few Amer-
ican watches left in the stores, the
place of honor in the displays has
gone to very fine Swiss watches.
Swiss Watches Popular
Their workmanship and quantity
of perfect detail make them more ex-
pensive than some of the former
American made watches. However,
the name "Swiss Watch" should be
sufficient to explain the rise in price.
Their styles are famous for their
ability to put perfect machinery in
the smallest possible space. It's a
lifetime present when you give a
Swiss made watch.
Although most of the aforemen-
tioned articles are in a higher price
range, there is a good variety of in-
expensive costume jewelry in a ci-
na-like material, wood, and translu-
cent plastics. The trend is towards
the genuine jewelry and epet

Coed Should Make
One of the most peculiar fashions
to appear was the wearing of earrings
with loafers and saddle shoes. Too
many college girls, in an effort to be
casual, have lost the appealing fem-
inine art of wearing jewelry.
In a bright spurt of femininity they
will screw on the only available pair
of. earrings as they dash out, com-
pletely oblivious to the potentialities
of those minute but all important
accesories. They are not made to
wear with sport shoes and socks, nor
is any pair made to wear with every-
They are infinitely attractive if
worn to enhace a costume and infin-
itely cheapening if they are merely
"something added to."
They are made in all sizes and
shapes on purpose. Some are for
little people; some are for glamoz-
ons. Sparkly ones are best for long,
concealing hairdos; curved to the ear

anyone says anything to the contrary
it's because they've seen some of the
sadder examples of casual turned
And they are one of the most like-
able giftis to receive and give as you
can actually choose personality types.
The small enameled butterflys, bright
silver skylarks, round glittering silver
discs, were made to order for you or
someone on your gift list.
Everyone collects sweaters. To
make your date dresses truly original,
have a collection of earrings to dig
into. This would be a good time to
let your friends know you're starting.
Just don't collect for quantity
though. Have a method in your mad-
ness. It's such fun to don glamour
for a change.
Christmas is a wonderful time to
replenish your lipstick and nail-
polish stocks. If some obliging room-
mate, or relative does not come
through, you might spend some of
your Christmas money for them.
A new color, called Radiant Peony,
has just made its appearance. The
color is all that the name implies,
having a lavender tint over a bril-
liant red. This color is available in
both lipstick and nailpolish for those
who are match fiends, and in a color
that is flattering to almost every
shade of skin.
For those who like to have an as-
sortment of nail polishes handy to
change with their costumes, a fa-
mous nail polish firm has madie up a
set of five small bottles of polish:
one to match almost every mood, and
a bottle of Adheron. These come in
a Christmasy red-and-white-striped
kit that would be a decoration to any
dressing table top.
New Fad Is Started
A fad that was started recently
was to put a light shade of enamel
over a dark one, which gives unusual
shades and highlights.. The lighter
one must be applied before the bot-
tom one is dry, to obtain the best
A lipstick that has a top fastened
on the case by an elastic is another
novelty. No longer will you have to
fumble vainly 'in your drawer,
searching for that elusive cap, while
your lipstick gets dirty and melted.
Now that top will always be right
where you want it.
This lipstick comes in such glam-
Starting with the time that Antony
presented Cleopatra with a jar of

cosmetics have been high on the list
of preferred Christmas gifts. And
while adder's tongue balm may have
done very well for Cleo, the girl of
today likes her beauty aids less mys-
tical and more effective.
Every year the cosmetic manufac-
turers put out special kits and pack-
ages designed for Christmas giving.
This year, although somewhat re-
stricted by war shortages, they have
managed to place many attractive
gift sets on the market.
Colognes, in a new form, have
made their appearance. Now they
are creamy, white and of the con-
sistency of milk. But they stilleretain
their clinging odors, and have proved
to be even more effective than the
former kind. Resides lasting fully
as long, these creamy colognes pre-
form the same function as a lotion,'
soothing and smoothing out rough
surfaces, but lending a fragrance
that no lotion would ever hope to

able are Apple Blossom,' Tabu,' 'A
