THE DOES ABOUND-Competition runs wild, with the feminine
adaptation of the doe-eyed look, as illustrated by Ann Lindbloom,
'52, and fellow eyecatcher. The new look in eye make-up also
sports an oriental slant which gives it a distinction all its own.

Two fashion minded Newberry
girls, Ida Semerjian ('51) and
Doris Stoll ('51 Ed.),nare seriously
thinking of writing a book en-
titled, "How To Make an Im-
pression in One Easy Lesson."
Dressed to the teeth in blue
jeans, Michigan T-shirts, and
long, dangling earrings, the coeds
decided that their ensembles were
not complete. They needed the
new artificial look.
Upon making this momentous
decision, they proceeded to get
theatrical. After they had made
up their eyes, complete with' eye-
brow pencil, mascara, eye shadow,
et al, they covered their 'faces with

of the dormitory, the girls went

THE DRUGSTORE clerk looked
at them, turned away, did a double
take, and "just roared." He re-
marked, quote the girls, "I don't
think it's here to stay!"
Evidently Mrs. McCoy had re-
covered by the following day,
because she stopped Ida in the
hall, and told her that she was
glad to see that the girls had
taken off their eyes.
Confidentially, Doris and Ida
are in absolute agreement with
their friend, the drugstore clerk.
They don't think the look is here
to stay. In fact, they aren't quite
sure it has arrived!

Men's styles still seem to be run-

Nai Is To Shine
By New Method
For women who like well-kept,
shiny nails but hate to have chip-
ped nail polish the perfect answer
is powder polish.
It gives the gleaming look of
colorless nail polish but is minus
many of the offending character-
istics of nail lacquer.
The only instrument needed to
apply it expertly is a nail buffer.
It is applied by shaking a small
quantity of the powder onto the
buffer and buffing the nails brisk-
ly in one direction.
The luster is heightened. by
washing the hands and finished
off by rubbing the nails against
the palms of the hands once or
twice. The use of a nail-white pen-
cil underneath the tips of the nails
enhances the attractiveness.

It will be checks - checks every-
where - this spring when coeds
don their new Easter suits, if one
can predict from the large selec-
tions of checked suits being shown
by leading fashion magazines.
What kind of checks? All kinds.
In size they will be tiny and reti-
cent, medium, big and bold, giant,
or startling. Colors will be usual
Checks can add glamour to any
color, occasion or figure. Some
fashion experts have said that a
single checked fashion can workd
like two solid costumes when it
is properly aided with accessories.
CHECKS ARE handsome, fun
to wear and above all tricky. Small
checks make you appear tinier if
excess poundage is your problem.
Large, reckless checks, some with
contrasting skirts in plain colors,
flatter a thin figure and are high

Suit silhouettes will offer a
variety in choice. There will be
long or short, loose or fitted
jackets, and straight or full
Unusual details will be abund-
ant. Among the innovations will
be winged cuffs, flared lapels,
contoured belts, dolman sleeves,
bloused backs, link buttons, and

COLOR CHOICES this spring
are yellow, green-gold, the red
family from soft pink to scarlet,
beige, and the everlasting navy.

An all-purpose checked suit

A line is drawn with the pencil

of mascara, one cosmetic company

For instance, place-mats, a
comparatively new innovation in
linens, have really come into their
own. Fashioned out of everything
from bamboo to linen damask,
they can be used for the most in-
formal or formal occasions.
Some of the more informal mats
are made from cork or reed, while
others are of heavy woven cotton
or plain linen. Most of these can
be gotten with matching or con-

OF COURSE, the important
thing in all of these styles is Col-
or! Practically every hue in the
spectrum can be had. Colors
ranging from deepest grape and
wine to the palest of pastels are
present in one style or another.
Colors such as these have been
introduced to help make the
table into a coordinated whole.
In fact, some place-mats have
been designed to match a few
of the more popular china pat-
While lending charm and beau-
ty to the informal table, place-

part of the formal table.
THESE FORMAL MATS are

of the same material. Many of

With the coming of spring, per-

The biggest news in scents this

Taste in scents is an important

rmarily because if any one of

worn, a heavy perfume is as in-
congruous as a fur coat in July.
Although floral scents are the
biggest news, tweedy perfume is
still fine for casual outfits. And,
of course, the sophisticated is al-
ways good for evening.
So that perfume can be carried
with no fear of leakage, several
companies have manufactured -a
