Newer Look
Spring coats and light toppers
embody the highest style points
of the 1950 spring fashions.
There are few radical changes
in coat fashions this spring, but
there are some interesting modifi-
cations. Coats are generally very
full and roomy with big sleeves.
Many have belts and can be worn
with or without to give variety.
featured this spring which make
the coat more comfortable when
worn over suits. The full drop
sleeve is also popular. This style
is carried out by a smooth drop
shoulder effect and a -yolk across
the back.
Some of the more dressy coats
are featuring puffy push-up
sleeves which have a full arm
and tight cuff. Many of the
sleeves shown are braclet length
and some are very short and
above the elbow of a semi-coat.
This dress-like style can be
worn as a dress or, in cooler
weather, as a coat over a dress.
Large wing-pointed collars give
a flying send-off and big conspi-
cious pockets add the finishing
touches. Perky stand-up collars
are also being featured with large
lapels. White pique is shown on
collars and cuffs to dress up the
coat a bit.
* * *
NEW HIP-LENGTH jackets are
just the thing to give last year's
suit the new look. Bright contras-
ting colors are featured with suits.
Many- of the jackets may be worn
straight or belted. A flared back
is again popular this spring.
The full short sleeves and
push-up sleeves are very sty-
lish in the jacket. These short
mull jackets billowing over a
pencil-slim skirt are just the
thing to give the stylish top-
heavy look of this spring.
The casual coat of this spring
follows the trend of the season. It
is large and full with huge con-
spicious pockets. It has full rag-
lan sleeves and big flowing collars.
It is worn with a belt which may
be buckled or merely folded over
in a neat knot.



Valuable experience in leader-
ship and personnel training is be-
ing offered to University women
who are interested in counseling
a select group of high school girls
during summer vacation.

director at Jordan Hall.
Counselors will receive $20 as
remuneration plus room and
board, and will be able to enjoy
many of the privileges and facili-
ties of the University while parti-
cipating in the program.
EACH COED will be assigned
to a town consisting of about 14
students. There will be a total
of 238 girls forming 17 town units.

Navy takes over again this
spring in the fashion world.
Whether it be the newest style

navy blue heads the list.

IN FABRICS with a hard finish
such as the old favorite, gabar-

sleek, tailored look for which
many a damsel strives.
Light weight wools, used more

in the latest fashions in coat de-

weight fleece and the new suede-

ceiving a top popularity rating.

THE BOLERO costume is one
of the most effective means of
wearing navy blue to the best ad-
vantage. A vivid contrast between
the blouse worn under the bolero
jacket and the navy blue of the
suit creates a spotlight effect.
The boleros vary in length,
some of them swing from
the shoulders while others fit
