Europe Leads
Travel Areas
For Summer

s

By NANCY TAYLOR
With spring comes that itch to
travel.
Hundreds of students satisfied
part of that wander-lust during
spring vacation when they trekked
down to Florida, but now the big
plans are for the summer.
Europe is high on the list of
travel spots. The old world with
its ruins of what was once the
great Roman Empire, the snow-
capped Alps of Switzerland, the
gay life of the Riviera and Paris,
and the many priceless treasures-
all of these draw thousands of
tourists across the Atlantic each
year.
* * S -
THE QUEEN MARY will carry
Sally Knapp from New York to
England, where she will begin her
trip through Europe. She is going
on a conducted tour with college
women from all over the; United
States. They plan to 'visit all of
the }ountries of Western Europe,
except Spain and the Scandanavi-
an countries.
Some of this year's graduating
seniors will be sight-seeing their
way through London, Rome and
Paris.
These coeds, Pat Sly, Charlotte
Stough, Lydia Wilhelm, Shirley
Davidson and Letitia Pierce are
planning an itinerary of the low-
countries, France, Germany, Italy
and England, which will extend
from -July to October.
* * *
THE FESTIVALS in Britain are
high points on their list of things
to see. The festivals are given
throughout the summer at Strat-
ford-on-Avon, Liverpool and Cam-
bridge.
Since Paris is celebrating its
20th birthday anniversary this
year, an extende stay in the
famous French city has been
planned by the touring coeds.
The S. S. America will carry
Mary Lubienski to Europe. She
will land in England and from
there she will cross the channel to
France and on to Switzerland and
Italy.
f r
FOR HER, ALSO, the "Festival
of Britain" will be a highlight of
her trip. "It is a cultural event,
much like the New York World's
Fair, which features art and sci-
ence exhibits," said Miss Lubien-
ski. "I'll be anxious to compare
English ideas with American."
What to wear on a Europea
trip is Barbara Simmons' main
problem. Since part of her tour
will be taken by bicycle, her
wardrobe will have to be limited
by luggage considerations.
Miss Simmons i going on a stu-
dent tour which is leaving June
28, on the S.S. Georgic. The tour
will cover England, France, Ger-
many, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium
and Holland.
* * *
"WE ARE GOING to try to see
the people and how they live,"
said Miss Simmons, "-not just
museums and a lot of buildings.
By touring on bikes we feel that
we will get to out-of-the-way
places where we can really see life
in Europe."
Jean Heidgen is leaving in
July on a conducted trip which
will tour most of Western
Europe.
When asked what places she was
most anxious' to see, she said,
"Heidelburg, because I've heard so
much about it as a real old coun-
try university town; Capri, because
it sounds romantic; and Paris, be-
cause . . . need I say more?"

Vacation Togs,
Styled To Suit
ForeignClimes
By PAT SMITH
Summer vacation brings
thoughts of travel and visions of
a perfect wardrobe for the trip.
In a travel wardrobe dilemma
one should first consider the
weather of the country being
visited, secondly, the baggage limi-
tations, and thirdly, the things
one plans to do.
IN, THE SCANDINAVIAN coun-
tries, for instance, a seersucker
suit or a cotton dress would not
be sufficiently warm.
On the other hand, if the
traveller were clad in Harris
tweeds while strolling on the
banks of the Bosphorus she
would find the experience very
uncomfortable.
Temperatures, of course, vary,
but generally the climates of Bri-
tain, France and other countries
in that latitude compare with the
northeastern states.
* * * .
SCANDINAVIAN weather is
closely allied to Canada's, while
the Mediterranean shores are sim-
ilar to California or Florida. A
Near East visitor would discover
that the climate there approxi-
mates southern Texas, along the
Gulf of Mexico.
Bermuda boasts a mild and
equable temperature which, over
a period of 25 years, has aver-
aged 70 degrees. Frost and snow
never occur and extreme heat
and humidity are rare. Cool
breezes are present at nearly
all times.
During the warmer months, cot-
ton dresses, an afternoon dress, an
evening dress, and summer sport
clothes will prove suitable for all
occasions.
A NICE BALANCE to strike for
many trips might be a medium
weight suit for basic wear and
sports type clothes in differing
weights for varying activities and
climates.
For European travelling and
other trips requiring m an y
changes a n d little carrying
space, non - crushable fabrics
such as nylon, tie-silk, seersuck-
er, and knits are preferable to
crepe, shantung, organdy and
gabardines.
Those who have been abroad
recommend that visitors take two
pairs of comfortable walking
shoes, preferably broken-in.
* s S
SINCE MATCHES are scarce
items in Europe, one who smokes
should include a cigarette lighter.
Lighter fluid may be purchased
everywhere.
Soap is another scarce com-
modity,band an adequate supply
should be included.
Experienced travelers w a r n
against taking too much. They
say that it is -a good idea not to
include fussy, frilly hats or elabor-
ate jewelry.
* * s
ALL-WHITE or light colored
clothing with the exception of
prints are also on the impractical
side.
One will probably find a trip
more enjoyable if a minimum
amount of baggage is taken.
It will be much easier and con-
venient to pack only light-weight,
easily laundered articles.
Seasoned travellers say that one
can easily get along on much less

than many would-be tourists ex-I
pect.

Formal Fashions To Feature
Variety of New Colors, Styles
Summer Fabrics Include Nylon, Voile;
Coeds Favor Models with Stoles, Jachets

:a

By LIZ BARBER
Frothy or plain, feminine ort
tailored, pastel or vivid, formal
dresses will add a bright and
beautiful touch to the summer
fashion parade.
Formal fashion has found new
fabrics, color combinations and
styles and it is taking full advant-
age of its findings. One of the
newest fabrics is frosted organdyt
in every lovely color imaginable.r
Piccola, an embossed cotton1
that will not wash out, is an-C
other material which has made a
recent debut together with em-c
bossed organdy and marquisette.

FOR VERY formal occasions,1
lace over satin, or nylon net andc
tulle are especially fashionable.

CHAPEAU CAPERS:
Marcel Wave
Inspires New
Hat Designs
By LORRAINE BUTLER
Hats off to the woman who
knows how to choose the correct
hat for herself and is not be-
wildered by the large array of1
millinery fashions this season.
Rather than from soup to nuts,
it has been from a marcel wave
to a clam which have served as
inspiration for the hats American
women will wear this spring.
* * ,
THE MARCEL WAVE, long
abandoned by most women, is putI
back on women's heads by de-I
signer Sally Victor, in tight-fitting
little hats of straw, ridged like
the bumpy waves of the crlingI
iron days.
These hats sit back of the.s
hairline, although Miss Victor
and other hat designers agree
that the forward tilted berets,
sailors, bowlers and pillboxes
are the newest in hats.
"It will take women a whilevto
get used to wearing hats over
their foreheas," Miss Victor said.
There are many new spring hats
that leave the forehead bare, how-
ever, like the "clam" head hugger
designed by "Mr. Fred" of John
Frederics. The skull cap is four-
pronged and fashioned in various
spring colors and fabrics.
* * *S
"CUTAWAY" hats are brief
enough to appeal to those women
who prefer to go hatless. Miss
Victor, who designed the cuta-
ways, did a suit version in a black
straw witha tiny white bow tie
tucked under the halo brim, and
a dress-up version in starched
white lace.
"Summer hats will either be
very small or veiy large," Miss
Victor predicted. "Very large
hats should be straws with wide;
shaped brims that curve out
over the forehead and down at
the sides, often ending in flar-
ing points at either side," she
said.
One creation for summer is the
cartwheel hat made by sewing
milan straw of different pastel
shaes together, designed by "Mr.
Fred." He also used pastel shades;
of velvet to make summer hats
patterned after traditional leg-
horns. They are set straight on
the head and trimmed with
matching pastel straw in shades
of soft pink, yellow, off-white and
a champagne beige.
* . *e
TRIMMINGS for spring bonnets
this year include the veils, feath-
ers, plus new ideas like "Mr.
John's" pink candy straw decor-
ated with appliqued flowers of
matching pink cotton; or a com-
bination of straw and white se-

quins sewn together in rows! or
cotton lace inset into milan straw
and dotted with rhinestones, or
"Mr. Fred's" .pastel straw hats
decorated with tiny bows of
matching wool yarn.
Another feature in spring
hats Is the flower - trimmed
snoods which dangle from the
back of tiny pillbox hats to give
the impression of a chignon.
The pancake-shaped creation of
pink flowers and black velvet bows
was designed by "Mr. Fred" to
pin on the back of the head,
matching a crown of pink and
black worn straight on the head.'
These, he says, are "separates",
to be worn together, or one at a
time.
* * *
THIS SEASON it is- especially
important in choosing a hat to

Swishy tissue taffeta falls into
this category, too.
If a woman is planning to
travel, and wishes to take a
formal, her best bet would be
nylon marquisette or non-crush-
able voile. Both dry clean beau-
tifully and stay fresh and crisp
after pressings.
Back again in good standingris
ballerina length, the local stores
report. Strapless styles with bo-
lero jackets and stoles of every
description head the list for bod-
ice favorites among University
coeds.
* * *
DROP SHOULDER dresses in
pastel organdies or starched. mar-
quisette are very feminine and
look cool and fresh on hot eve-
nings.
To soften the formality of a
dress, detachable sleeves can be
worn. A one strap effect serves
the opposite purpose of making
the gown very formal.
A formal that comes with a fit-
ted jacket can be turned into a
cocktail or dance dress at will.
* * *
DESIGNERS have made good
use of velvet again this season
and it is found in combination
with every fabric. A striking con-
trast is a pastel dress trimmed
with velvet ribbon of a deeper
hue.
Black lace or red print over
white is found in several ver-
sions, often trimmed with velvet
cord ribbon of the same color
as the print.
Solid colors range from the
usual pastels to the brightest of
reds, mint greens and orchids in
pique, net and cotton.
Another new scheme is the com-
bination of two or thre shades
of the same color.
The graduating shades are com-
bined in layers of net in a stole
or gathered in a puff on the
shoulder.

JewelryFads
Style Now To Favor
Simplicity, Lightness
By JANICE JAMES
Grandma may have worn a lock
of grandpa's hair in her gold and
pearl locket, and the flappers may
have gone overboard and sported
gobs of beads and bracelets, but
today's woman seems to have hit
a happy medium with her spring
and summer jewelry fashions.
While the women of the naugh-
ty nineties followed the strict and
severe styles of a plain locket, with
perhaps a ring on the hand or a
bracelet around the wrist, the flap-.
per covered herself with so much
jewelry that she looked like a
walking pawn shop.
The females of the fifties,
though, seem to follow the "on the
fence" policy, for they have devel-
oped the knack of dressing up, or
down, a gown by merely adding or
subtracting a piece of jewelry.
* « «
THIS DEVELOPMENT is espe-
cially noticeable in the spring and
summer months, when emphasis
is placed upon the straight and
clean cut lines which make a dress
appear lightweight and so much
cooler.
It is during these months that
white seed jewelry once again
comes into its own. Bracelets,
earrings and necklaces of this
material are a perfect comple-
ment to summer pastels.
Many women prefer to wear just
earrings and a bracelet with their
warm weather wardrobes, feeling
that an abundance of jewelry gives
a heavy and cluttered appearance.

WITH WHITE A dominating
summer hue, jade and coral reach
their height of popularity during
the vacation months. Long a fav-
orite of Orientals, jade provides
a note of richness, along with sim-
plicity to summer gowns.
Used extensively for earrings,
brooches and rings, jade may be
carved with a great variety of
designs which add a distinguish-
ing note to each piece.
The earrings are often of the
drop variety, but the flat versions
are also attractive and popular.
Rings are usually made up of one
stone, but the size may be of any,
dimensions.
A FAVORITE FOR many years,
coral is another stone which reigns
over summer jewel fashions. Many
women nrefer to wear only a string

SHADES OF NAPOLEON:,
Antique Court Pieces Inspire
Costume Jewelry Designers

By MARILYN CAMPBELL
Sport clothes, cottons, after-
noon dresses and evening clothes
are all complemented by the new-
est designs in costume jewelry.
Especially adaptable are repli-
cas of old court jewels, created by
several designers. Napoleonic seals
and adaptations from English
heirlooms of ruby, amethyst, and
aqua marine set in antique gold
are being favored by many fash-
ion experts.
