A sure sign of coming warm
weather is the increasing number
of new spring coats which are be-
ing displayed in the stores and
in fashion magazines.
New fabrics are being featured
this year's coats along with
w varieties of the old "stand-*
y One of, these new fabrics is
Dynel, a fluffy fleece-like material
that can be machine washed but
FAILE is also being featured

There are several rayon com-
inations appearing in new
coats, These are / particularly
popuar combinations for the
The coat fashions this spring
'eature a combination of the old
and the new.
AMONG THE traditional styles
are toppers that seem to be per-
ennial favorites. They are being
featured with flare backs, some in
French designs and others in the
Limple fingertip style.
One of the unusual new spring
coats is the all wool Maharajah
crepe. It features removable
white pique trim and is made
in three styles-fitted, topper,
and box coat.
Wool checks and tweeds are
ery popular this year. They are
being especially featured in the
'casual full length coats.
ONE CHECK is made into a
lollarless coat with wool suede
facing along the neckline and
down the front.
A pointed collar, diagonal
patch pockets and rayon taffeta
lining are featured in a tweed
One of the new comers on the
scene of spring coats is the very
short coat. Most of the short
'shorties are about waist length and
are made in either nubbed wool,
slubbed wool or the smooth wool.
J The short coats usualy button
to the, waist, and many are made
yn bright colors. ,
As usual in fashions, new ma-
terials are used in traditional
patterns and new styles are made
of traditional materials. However,
spring coats this year do offer a
great deal of variety in both ma-
terial and styling.

Although the Michigan coed
may only wear her cottons for a
small part of the year, the de-
partment stores and designers
conspire to tempt her into buying
her wares early.
Cottons again will be bright
and gay to match the first spring
days. Stripes, plaids or solid col-
ored dresses trimmed with pique
are being shown by many stores.
* * *
ONE SILKY textured cotton
features push up sleeves and
small pearl buttons on the bodice
with a large gathered skirt.
The full skirted style is indi-
cative of the many summer
clothes being shown in the dis-
play windows. If skirts are not
gathered, they use the still pop-
ular unpressed Pleats.
Combed cotton dimity is fea-
turned by another designer. Keep-
ing crisp with a permanently
starched finish, one dress comes
with a matching finely striped
cotton corduroy jacket.-

VARYING FROM the stripes,
plaids and pastels are the many
new candy colored separates com-
ing in embossed cotton which
stays fresh looking for a long
Practical to the coed becapse
they may be easily switched
around to stretch a wardrobe,
some separates combine a cir-
cular flared skirt with sleeve-
less blouses. Rhinestone, pearls
and demure collars add to their
Bold colors and prints are util-
ized in some of the quilted sep-
arates that have been on store
racks in preparation for spring.
ONE QUILTED skirt is shown
with a quilted top made like a
halter which comes to points over
the flared skirt. Both the pieces
are faced with a solid matching'
One multicolored calico print is
used in a quilted doll waisted
skirt and matching weskit.
In contrast to the heavier ma-
terial quilted in the Jacket and
top, a light cotton blouse with
long gr push up sleeves make it
an appropriate ensemble for
the warm days ahead.
Another quilted outfit combines
a sunback dress with a bolero that
may be reversed. In contrast to
the checked skirt and bodice, the
bolero is backed with picolay-type

With spring in the offing, many
fashion experts predict a continu-
ation of the trefias started last
winter in women's hairdos.
The pony tail and poodle cut,
made familiar in the fall and
winter of 1952, have a number of
qualities that will make them
adaptable for summer.
* * *
THEY ARE easy to take care
of. Everyday vigorous brushing to
'distribute natural oils and an
occasional warm olive massage
keep the tresses gleaming. Run-
ing a comb through them is all
that's required to keep the two
styles looking neat.
Another feature of the pony
tail and poodle cut that will
interest the coed is their ver-
satility-.they can be either
dressed up or down.
For playtime the shortness of
the poodle cut keeps it out of the
way for fast tennis games, and
is easy to tuck into a swiuning
THE PONY TAIL is a boon to
the sport-loving woman because
it will stay in place for a long
time. And wearing the hair off
the neck in summer is a recog-;
nized method of keeping cooler.
For evening wear both styles
may be dressed up to fit the
occasion. Rhinestones and vel-
vet ribbons are especially popu-
Fashion experts, this spring,
have taken into consideration the
woman who doesn't want quite
such different hairdos. They ad-
vise dressing the hair to match
the rest of a woman's wardrobe.
* * *
TO FIT the femininity of light
summer cottons and bembergs,
curls piled high on the head are
recommended. For this the hair
should be cut not more than
three and one-half inches long.
Simple hairdos are appreciated
by the working woman. With lit-
tle time to bother with grooming,
the easy-to-fix quality is impor-
tant on the summer job.
1952 spring fashions are de-
signed to bring out the smartness
and taste of the woman as well
as highlight her features and

Pastels To Appear Again.

For the woman who desires to

begin to bud, fashion has brought
out the pale but interesting look.

Reflecting fur colors are her
