SWEATER SET - Michigan coeds model four popular sweater styles. Ann Patterson, wearing the
short sleeved style, hands a coke to Carol Wilcox who is pictured in a long sleeved pull-over. Carol
Schumacher models a light cardigan and Virginia Gish, a pull-over jersey model. These styles and
many more make up a large part of the college woman's campus wardrobe.
ANSWER TO EVERY OCCASION:
Jewels, Colored Yarn Spark Evening Sweaters
Nine out of ten college women
This fact comes as no surprise
to coeds who would be at a com-
plete loss without their many
sweater and skirt combinations,
yet sweaters are not often in the

PROBABLY because they are
worn so much, and because the
basic style does not change, sweat-
ers seldom make the headlines.
However, recently, this popu-
lar garment has begun to come
into its own.
Several women in New York,
searching for new and different
ideas to occupy their time, began
embroidering their sweaters for

THE IDEA caught on quickly
and manufacturers are now mak-
ing evening sweaters on a large
Although at first these sweat-
ers were made in boucle and
very fine yarn, now they are
shown in plain long sleeved car-
digans and pullovers.
The only basic difference be-
tween the casual and dressy sweat-
er is the embroidery around the
neck and shoulders.

SOME ARE simply intricate de-
signs of different colored yarn,

tiny jewels-usually pearls or
Most of the latest sweaters
bear the mark of the predomi-
nant Spanish influence found
in so many styles this year. De-
signs are larger and more intri-
cate; brighter and infinitely
Along the line of casual sweat-
ers, besides the ever popular long
sleeved cardigan and pullover, the
latest news is the short sleeved
cardigan, complete with cuffed

THIS TRICKY number comes in
nearly all of the colors, and al-
though at this time there are not
a great many in stock, local stores
expect to receive several shipments
"Sloppy Joe" sweaters are a
thing of the past. Neatness is
the byword in sweaters today.
Shaped to fit, most of them have
elasticized necklines and cuffs
to prevent stretching.
In materials, Zephyr wool is the
biggest news. znported from Scot-
land, this wool is soft, fine and
durable. Nylon is still importan#
in sweater news; but the favorite
is cashmere. ,
A WORD to the wise, authorities
say, that the best cashmere is
from hina, not Scotland, as most
coeds seem to think. And for the
"Didja know" department -- it
takes 72 beautiful Chinese moun-
tain goats to make one cashmere
Hence the high price.
Colors are also in the news. Bit-
tersweet, a sort of orange with a
brownish tinge, is the color for
FOR EXAMPLE, neutral shades
are being shown for both' winter
and spring, and toast, the color so
much in demand last fall, will con-
tinue to be seen through the win-
But the color for spring is
purple. Purple in any shade -
from lavender so light it is al-
most white to the deepest of
deep purples. This is the color
seen most frequently in the
short sleeved cardigan.
One authority has stated the
latest word on the care of sweat-
ers. They should be sent to the
cleaners the first two or three
times, she says.
The outline of the sweater
should be drawn on a newspaper
before the sweater is washed. Af-
ter being washed in soft suds, and
rinsed at least three times, it
should be pressed dry in a towel,
not wrung out with vengeance.
When dry, the sweater should
be ironed-or rather, steamed, un-
der a wet pressing cloth or towel.
New Pink Hue
For Yule Tree
Change in Tradition
By Sorority Sisters
"Did you ever hear of a pink
Well, neither did a group of poor,
unsuspecting members of Zeta
Tau Alpha until last Thursday.
s f *
ON THAT NIGHT three "Ze-
tas" were sitting in the living room
staring at the steel blue drapes,
when suddenly one of then re-
marked: "I want a pink Christmas
The other two didn't thinkit
was such a bad idea either. So,
all three of them donned blue
jeans and headed for the base-
ment of the house armed with
paint and brushes.
The pink color was produced by
mixing some old white and red.
paint which was scraped together.
* * *
HALF WAY through the job one
of the girls acidentally knocked
over the can of paint, spilling pink
all over the floor, her jeans and
her watch (which by the way, still
contains the remnants of pink
From that time on, the girls
proceeded with their task by ap-
plying the paint from the floor
with their hands.
At last, well after midnight, the
job was finished!
* * .
FIRST REACTIONS-to the tree
were all very similar. Comments
vary, "I like tradition." While oth-
ers gasped, "It's fushia, ghastly!"
The three culprits were sought
out, and almost dealt with dras-
tically. But fate saved them!
After looking at the pink tree
for a while the feeling slowly
changed. Many liked it; some were
even more enthusiastic about it.
Anyhow the nine foot pink
Christmas tree still remains up-
right in the living 'room of the
Zeta Tau Alpha house direct-
ly in front of the bay window.
Passers-by can easily spot it. An-
gels' hair and ornaments of prac-
tically every color (except yellow)
adorn its branches. The tree has
no lights; instead a red spotlight
shines down on it and the tradi-
tional star tops it.
The General Library will remain
open during the Christmas vaca-
tion for students who want to
jump the gun and start studying
Officials don't anticipate great
crowds jamming the study halls,
however. Therefore the library
will be operating on a limited
schedule, according to Warner G.
Rice, library director.
The short hours', which will go
into effect Friday, Dec. 22, will
continue throughout the vacation
period until Monday, Jan. 8.
Weekday hours will lie from 8 a.
m. until 6 p.m. The library will
be closed Saturdays, Sundays,
and Mondays, Dec. 23-25. Dec. 30-
Jan. 1; and Jan. 6 and 7.
There need never be the prob-
lem of what to give the housewife
for Christmas. Tablecloths are al-
ways welcomed gifts and are of-
fered in a variety of shapes, sizes
and colors. Matching napkins can
usually be found to supplement
