DURING THE WAR, Assembly
and Panhellenic combined in the
presentation of their annual dance
but in 1947, Assembly Ball was

and wind their thoughts are turn-
ing to warmer days when they
can store away gloves and boots

EVER POPULAR gingham will
reign again in the kingdom of
casual wear. Harlequin plaids and
small, delicate plaids-miniature
checks and bright, bold checks will
all be seen in gingham.
Blazing white pique will also
be featured in this spring's
fashion parade. The stiff, pebbly
texture of the material makes
it an effective fabric for jackets
and skirts and a useful trim for
collars and cuffs.
Chalk white circle skirts of
pique are cut to give a stiff, sculp-
tured appearance. A short full
jacket of the same material will
complete a striking ensemble.

FOR DRESS WEAR, the five
year old Lumina fabric is steadily
gaining in popularity. Lumina is a
combination of long staple combed
cotton woven with aluminum to
produce a metallic effect.
