Coeds Choose
New Luggage
For Traveling
Packing Hints Suggest
Well Filled Suitcases,
Wrinkle-Proof Clothes
For the college girl who plans
to travel this summer, manufac-
turers are featuring clothes of
wrinkle-proof fabrics as well as
new styles in luggage.
Many sportclothes this season
are of nylon or acetate jersey.
Washing and drying is the only
attention this material needs, and
in dresses of this fabric the trav-
eler can find pleats that will stay
'a * *
sweaters of nylon can be found in
cottonrand nylon seersucker. This
may be ironed simply by hanging
it in the closet.
For evening wear, many de-
signers feature skirts of layers
of nylon organdy which can be
worn with nylon jersey halters.
Wrinkles in these clothes will
hang right out.
Crinkled cotton, which never
needs to be pressed, is shown in
dressy clothes also. One manufac-
turer has used it in a mauve-pink
sleeveless coat. Underneath, a red
strapless dress with a wide circle
skirt is worn.

THOUGH IT doesn't rain as
much everywhere as it does in Ann
Arbor, the wise traveller will take
along a raincoat. Many stores
are featuring Zelan-processed ny-
lon seersucker coats which can be
folded into a small package and
will unfold with no wrinkles at all.
To pack these clothesa square
suitcase which will accommo-
date, without folding, the shoul-
ders of a coat, jacket or dress
is being shown in local stores.
To take cosmetics, shoes and
other small items in a canvas bag
is recommended. One style, of
plaid canvas, rolls up into an en-
velope which may be used as a
laundry bag.

signed a set of inexpensive light-
weight luggage modeled after a
It comes in all sizes from an
overnight case to one equipped
to handle clothes for a week's
vacation. Also this season stores
are featuring a sturdily built
Pullman case which weighs four
pounds less than average air-
plane luggage.
When packing, every bit of space
should be filled, for air pockets
mean wrinkles. Small things such
as stockings may be packed in the
toes of shoes. Gloves and a small
bag like an evening bag may be
placed inside a larger bag.
Experienced travelers suggest
that the coed take separates for
they may be combined to form
many different outfits. A concen-
trated color scheme that requires
the fewest number of bags and
shoes is also recommended.

A true Cinderella story is that
of a little emigrant known as Ca-
pezio who came to this country
about forty years ago and set up
a small shoe shop next to the Met-
ropolitan in New York.
The shop wasn't much, in fact
the person looking for it had to
climb a flight of stairs, plow

through piles of rubbish, banana1
peels from someone's lunch and+
groups of laughing friends before
he could ever get to the little shop.
* * *
THE CINDERELLA part of the
story came when the great bal-
lerina, Pavlova, brought her prec-
ious pair of ballet slippers there
to be repaired.
The shoes were wearing out
and she was superstitious-she
wanted to keep them. So she
left them with Capezio who re-
made them as good as new.
Pavlova liked the work and
brought the shoes there again and
again until they finally wore out.
Then she commissioned the emi-
grant to make her another pair.
THIS HE DID and the ballerina
liked the work so well she brought
her troupe to him and he made
shoes for all of them.
From then on, Capezio's name
was famous. Dancers who
danced at the Met brought their
shoes to him or had him make
new ones for them. Capezio was
the originator of the ballet shoe
in America, and since those days
has made shoes for almost every
famous dancer in the country.
When the Broadway hit "Brig-
adoon" was being staged, the prob-
lem came up of shoes for the danc-
ers. The costuming called for high
boots, but it was quite impossible
to dance in them.
* * *
THE PRODUCER took the prob-
lem to Capezio who solved it quite
simply-he made the whole troupe

ing her unique Oriental Jewelry ... the kind
she'has always wanted. Gift wrapped and mail-
ed on request, the reasonable prices make them
twice as attractive!

Capezio's Name Remembered by Shoemakers

ballet shoes and put burlap tops
on them. It looked like a boot and
yet was easy to dance in.
After that almost all the
Broadway productions that feat-
ured dance scenes had their
shoes made by Capezio.
As his fame spread, the public
came to Capezio for shoes and
he began making them for models,
wealthy socialites and some of
the best dressed women in New
With this increased patronage,
came a demand for a larger shop.
To Capezio and his friends, it

seemed almost a crime to leave the
dingy shop that had served so well
for his cobbler's work. Also, the
shop was brimming over with Bo-
hemian atmosphere that seemed
todelight the customers that came
But the change was made even-
tually and contrary to the fears
of the owners (Capezio had died
before the change was made)
there was nc loss of business. The
little emigrant's name was too
famous and well-loved.

ing carried on in New York

fast becoming

Sportswear To Use Denim

"Ol' Sol" is shining, the tennis
courts are crowded, and students
are picnicing and sailing out at
Whitmore Lake - all of which
causes a coed's fancy to turn to
thoughts of summer sportswear.
Denims hit a fashion high this
season in the sports clothes de-
partment with the college girls,
who look for practicality, adapt-
ability, and style in their clothes.
The old stand-by denim "blue
jeans," which talpe so well to coed
life, have inspired designers to fill
the demand for more stylish and
colorful clothes which still afford
the practicalness of the "jeans.,,
Among the popular denims this
season are the "matador" trousers
of three-quarter length; the one-
piece, belted play suits with long
zipper fronts; the slacks with
large patch pockets and the fam-
iliar pedal pushers.
. All of these clothes adapt them-
selves not only, to summer sports
but to comfortable study wear as

Also shown in the new frosty
pastel shades of sailors' cloth, are
jackets with straight lines or flar-
ed backs and new middy styles
like the "monks"' jacket which is
loose fitting and belted with rope.
These new creations are design-
ed to give women the freedom they
require for active sports.
Sailor dresses, square-necked
jumpers, and wide gored skirts
have found their way into the
fashion parade along with denim
shorts and halters-all of which
can take the wear and tear of
summer sports activities and yet
provide a touch of style.
The dresses and jumpers are not
only suitable for a "dressy" walk
in the Arb, but also for a canoe
ride on the Huron and for classes
on a warm summer day.
Denim has even invaded the
footwear department where the
"sneakers" are of popular acclaim
and do not require extra minutes
of a busy coed for cleaning.
