Suggestions Include
Gloves, Scarfs, Purses

She might have a trio of hand-
sewn cotton gloves in black, white

fits, colors and classes.
NO COED will make a fuss about
receiving a pair of embroidered
angora mittens with pin wheels
of mock pearls or a pair of white
lace gloves with pearled cuffs
for evening wear.
These gloves will have in hand
clutch purses of calf, leather or
velvet, or they might be hidden
under a white squirrel muff that
represents ermine.
The gloves may open to reveal
a shocking pink silk satin purse
covered with a tapestry of jewels
with a compact and lipstick of the
same material.
FOR CAMPUS wear the white
wool blanket mittens have a tight
grasp on the new plaid carryall
pouch bag.
For her waist our Christmas
coed will ask Santa for a variety
of belts. Her dark clothes would
be brightened by a golden-tone

Inexpensive Gift Suggestions Made
For Students with Empty Purses

Once again the approach of
Christmas has caught coeds by
surprise. '

list of gifts to buy, the student
finds herself in possession of a
near empty pocketbook.
However, judging from the stock
carried in Ann Arbor stores, one
may even buy novel but useful
gifts for $1.00 or less.
High on the list of these items
is a purse ash tray that contains
a cigarette rest on the inside. On
its cover, one sees a cigarette cen-
tered on a gold background.
One of the newest items is a
little stamp box complete with an
attractive cover.
Another product called a key-
keeper, fastens inside a woman's
handbag and makes it impossible
for her to lose those elastic keys.
Even gloves now remain intact
when they are fastened with glove
clips to the purse.
Going even one step farther,
producers have placed on the mar-
ket two articles that will make the
purse losers happy.
One of these is a purse hangar-
ashtray. The ashtray part of this
gadget fits on a table edge while
the hangar extends below the table
holding the purse.
Traveling shoe bags and plastic
cosmetic cases containing un-
breakable plastic bottles of assort-
ed sizes promise to iron out many
packing problems.
Whether for dorm or travel use,
sewing kits with red leatherette
cases make practical gifts.
In the perfume line many stores
are selling applicators that sell
for around 75 cents.

New Shirt Look
* * *
Shirts Found
To Be Useful
With shirts being the new word
in men's fashions, the Michigan
man will find a variety of styles
that could fit into his college ward-
The biggest change takes place
in the collar as more and more
fellows are seen sporting the but-
ton collar and round collar styles
for date and classroom wear.
* * *
WHILE THE button collar shirt
has the reputation of being a prac-
tical school or business shirt, one
Ann Arbor store reports that they
even have it in formal wear.
This dress shirt for tuxedos
is made out of silk and will be
noticed at many dorm and fra-
ternity Christmas formals.
Becoming "the thing" on cam-
pus is the Eastern style round col-
lar shirt worn with the Repp
striped tie and the tab clip.
* * *
A FAVORITE with men who
like the classic English look to
their dress, the shirt is made from
Oxford cloth or white pique with
regular or French cuffs.
Eastern stores this year are
pushing nylon shirts which
wash easily, dry quickly and
need no ironing, features which
make them handy for traveling
However, one Ann Arbor sales-
man reported that the college stu-
dents here don't like the nylon
shirt classifying it as "an expen-
sive but not a quality shirt."
One new fabric that the stu-
dents do "go for,, however, is
brush cotton. A material that has
a tighter weave than regular cot-
ton-producing a softer finish.
Electric Gifts Aid
Students Selection
Of 'Right'_Present
Electricity has come of age and
this year especially in the form of
useful Christmas presents to fit
the needs of everyone on a stu-
dent's shopping list.
For someone special, an electric
razor is a good gift. Thisyear
small electric razors in pastel
shades are being shown especially
for the women.
Electrical appliances are always
accepted as welcome gifts. They
mak take the form of an electric
clock, an automatic toaster or an
electric mixer.
An electric blanket for a cold
winter night may be beyond the
student's budget but could be put
on a list of ideas for future refer-
A French fryer is a handy ap-
pliance for a family to own also.
Completing the list of electrical
gifts might be a steam iron, a
portable electric broiler or a small

Selecting gifts ror the home'
and family can be a pleasurable
experience if the harried student
can sit down for a few minutes
and reconsider his family's likes
and needs.
These few ideas may be of help
in choosing accessories for the
home and the first suggestions
given are all under $8.
If you have the kind of family
which is constantly on the go a
small notebook may be just the
thing to jot messages in. One such
notebook comes in simulated
leather of a vivid red or forest
green. This has the added aid of
a magnetized gold-finished pencil
that clings to the rings inside the
Prints and reproductions of
paintings make nice gifts from
you to your family. Ann Arbor is
a good shopping center for these.
Perhaps TV has completely
taken over as the source of enter-
tainment for your family. If not,
a fresh new deck of cards might
be a good gift. The washable type
can be found for around $2.50.
Gift booklets of coupons that
buy anything at RKO theatres,
from tickets to candy can be pur-
chased for $1, or $5. This might
be one way to get Mother -or Dad
to take an evening off.
Books are always appropriate
gifts and make nice additions to
the home.
Families who enjoy good food
would probably appreciate a bas-
ket of plum pudding, stuffed figs
or fruit cake. Such things are
specialties in many stores during
the holiday season.
Cheese Chests containing a va-
riety of spreads are a nice change
from the candy so often given al-
though candy is always an appro-
priate gift.
Keep food hot throughout a
meal with a wrought-iron trivet
that has a separate sterno holder.
Pretzels and popcorn can be
easily served in a wicker spoon
basket with an extra long handle
which makes a nice gift.
A new barbeque, that works in-
side and out all year 'round is
priced under $6.00. This is copper
and nickel plated steel.
Steak sets could be given to go
along with the barbeque if you
and a brother or sister wanted
to give related presents.
Butterspreaders make nice gifts
also and canape used as cheese or
relish spreaders. Six of these can
be purchased together or they can
be bought separately.
Continuing in the same line we
find Swedish, satin-finish, stain-
less-steel flatware in a 6 piece
place setting for $8. Another ver-
sion of stainless steel dinnerware
is that with bamboo handles.
An entertaining accessory for a
fireplace is a box of extra long
taper matches. A brass holder to
accompany this gift would also
be an idea.
Another cheerful gift might be
a door knocker. They come in
many materials and usually have
a place to engrave or paint a
name. A brightly painted Iranian
goat bell was seen which served
as a door knocker.

This would sell for about $23.
A large coffee jug to use for
parties is another suggestion for
families who entertain. For cof-
fee connoisseurs an automatic
coffee-maker is a perfect gift and
an imported coffee mill is a use-
ful accessory.
