Tennis, Canoeing Beckon Students Cowlook
To Spark WoolensKeep in Spotlight for Spring Season
Variety in Style,
By MARILYN CAMPBELL
With, the arrival of spring in
Ann Arbor, students begin desert-
ing classes and studies for the ten-
nis courts, the canoe livery, the
bicycle shop, for hikes along the
river, picnicking and for just plain
Attractive sport clothes are then
practically a necessity for all co-
eds. This year's selection inclules
a variety of styles and colors.
PLAIN OLD-FASHIONED blue
jeans can now be found in many
different colors, including pastel
blue, black, green and red, which
are accented by white stitching.
Also popular with University co-
eds are western-styled jeans, cop-
ied after those of the cowboy.
The tennis enthusiasist has a
variety of outfits to choose from.
Shorts of practically all colors
and styles can be purchased in
the local stores.
"Boy shorts" with or without
cuffs are often seen on tennis
players. Bright chartreuse, Scotch
plaid, striped, fashionable navy
blue, white or any other color can
be found. The material in these
shorts is usually of cotton denim

COMMENTING on this, his lat-

er stated with gutteral intonations,
"We have had the doggy look, the
poodle cut, the horse tail and doe
eyes; the day of the cow is come."
The crowded / display room
rang with applause as his first
number was shown. Pirouetting

this is a red synthetic woolen shirt
with zippered front.
FOR THE sporting woman, Kar-
mazov has included in his collec-
tion a wide display of velvet ace-
tate shorts with matching or con-
trasting jackets. Crush resistant,
non-wrinkleable, the fabric is
shown in a veritable rainbow of

Vibrant vodka, acclaimed byc
the fashion world as "moreI
heady than champagne, more
burning than burguindy," made
its appearance often today.
"For evening wear, vodka will be
the toast of the town," a leading
buyer predicted. "We plan to stock
it in all proofs-or fashions, I
FABRIC, FABRIC and more fa-
bric hits the eye when one gazes at
the collection. For, with the re-
cent advent of "steriltone"-the
new processing which requires
neither washing, ironing n o r
hanging-the designer of today
need not concern himself with mi-
lady's problems of maintenance.
Swirling skirts for evening,
for the classroom, for casual
wear, these are the trade marks
of Karmazov. "They, decrease
the chassis," one model inform-
ed me, "and release one from the
confines of her girdle--although,
with the new super-stretchable,
skin scintillating models, even a
girdle is no hardship."
The nipped in waist? Gone for-
ever in the collection. Even to the
fashion layman, it is evident that
such a waistline is incompatible
with the "cow look." And thus it
is that Karmazov's designs feature
reoccuringly the frock blouse,
simple and straight--falling from
shoulder to waist.
Although the coed looks anxi-
ously toward spring as the time
for a switch from winter clothes
of wool to those of lighter cotton
or the many new synthetic ma-
terials, the fashion world does not
comletlyignore spring woolens.
Long spring coats will be found
in a new nubby textured wool that
is simply designed. The full cuffed
sleeves are cut with the four pan-
eled body of the coat for a smooth

A coat dress in a fine wool
with a special weave is also sim-
ply styled. It combines a wisp-
waisted princess style line with
a tiny back belt. Buttons cross
the dress diagonally from a
small pointed collar.
A suit suitable for almost any
occasion is styled for spring in tail-
ored wool gabardine. The jacket
is of medium length with the still
favored soft rounded shoulders.
The skirt is slim under the panel-
ed designed jackets.
ANOTHER CASUAL suit that
indicates the trend in the spring
clothes is of ribbed worsted. Over
a plain slim skirt is shown a car-
digan jacket of plaided worsted.
Belted in front, the back of the
jacket swings out to form a deep
