APHRODITE REIGNS SUPREME:
Coeds Bow to Godess of Beauty
By ESTHER MARGOLIS
Aphrodite, the goddess of na-
tural beauty, might turn over on
her cloud if she could witness the
advancements made by cosmetic
manufacturers in furthering femi-
nine loveliness and cleanliness.
"To enhance the sheen of your
hair, try shampoo with color ac-
cents. O n e reasonable-priced
shampoo is especially designed to
bring out highlights in red and
brown hair, to lighten blonde tres-
ses and to eliminate any yellow
discoloration in silver tones. It
will not harm or bleach the hair.
Conditioners with coloring can
be found on the market as a sup-
plement to the shampoo. There's
usually an uneven coloration in
the normal head of hair. The dif-
ference in shade is seen between
the shaft and the ends of the hair.
The new dressing creates an even-
ness in color and brings out the

'Good Scents' Attract Males;
Floral Fragrances Stressed

Spring usually makes a young
man's fancy turn to love, but the
right perfume can make these
Perfume, definitely as import-
ant as correct fashions, are just
as subject to seasonal change.
Here's a preview of some of the
fragrances drifting around this
Floral scents are always popu-
lar in the springtime. Some de-
lightful ones are "Lavendar" by
Yardley and Dior's "Miss Dior"
which is a blend of "sixty dif-
ferent flower notes."
Other ever-popular floral scents,
their names derived from their
odors, are "Lilac," "Gardenia,"
"Heliotrope," "Blue Hyacinth"
and "La Rose." "Un Air Em-
baum6," (fragrant breeze), is a
creation of Riquad which is per-
fect for the girl who wants to ap-
pear as the proverbial breath of
To match the new sport fash-
ions, there are such woody and
spicy blends as Bendel's "Un Peu
d'Elle and Faberge's always-popu-
lar "Woodhue" and "Straw Hat."
For delightful spring evenings
there's a range of scents from
floral to the ultra-sophisticated
oriental blends. A new fragrance
"Accomplice" by Cody is "warm,
fresh . . . and just a bit myster-
ious," ideal for those "special"
From this preview it seems as
if the perfume manufacturers have
created fragrances for every mood,
occasion and personality. A good
reason why it won't be difficult to
use "good scents" this spring.

Rouge for Naturalness
Liquid rough is still the best
compliment for the dheeks, it
creates a more natural look.
There is now a concern manu-
facturing two lipsticks of the same
shade, one for day and one for
evening wear, because lights have
a different effect on the lip color.
For example, clear red lipstick
appears orange at night. To avoid
this change, -manufacturers sell
two lipsticks in a combination
package so that the color selected
will always appear the same tone.
Women now enjoy the advant-
age of indelible lipsticks. One
company has introduced an un-
dercoat that will insure indelibil-
ity of any lipstick. In the form
of R-Tone for red, V-tone for
blue-red and T-V for orange, this
undercoat is also worn alone.
The hands are another focal

Crinolines, one of the most po-
pular of feminine frivolities, are
by no means a new invention of
Petticoats worn today were the
style -of the court of Queen Eliza-
beth and James I. Crinolines in
vogue during that era were sup-
ported by whalebone and made of
horsehair." For years they were a
leading branch of the steel trade.
In 1856, the crinoline invaded
the wardrobes of women of all
ranks. Reaching pretentious di-
mensions, they proved very incon-
venient to both the wearer and to
those near her.
These immense bell-shaped pet-
ticoats left the fashion scene
About three years ago, the ad-
vent of the tiny waist and billow-
ing circular skirts caused the crin-
oline to regain popularity. A host
of styles and brand names ap-
peared on the market, the most
effective being the nylon horse-
Since the price was too high to
accommodate most budgets, many
variations have recently appeared,
offering attractive stiff crinolines

The trend in crinolines for
spring is the straight top, hip
flair with embroidered *eyelet.
Novelty crinolines are also
shown. Fancy fringed bottoms with
dangling charms and fruits, along
with the feminine multi-colored
ruffles are eye-catchers.
Although many heavier coeds
wish to wear crinolines, it's sug-
gested they avoid the gathered-
waist style and stick to the smooth
hip-line petticoat which is more
flattering to the waist. Slim girls
can choose from the wide variety

males for their opinion of this
fashion, a wide difference of atti-

One student denounced them.
He said that he couldn't get close
enough to his date when she wore
so many petticoats. Another re-
marked that crinolines were made.
"tg deceive the opposite 8ex."
"They make it difficult," he said,
"to determine just where the co-

The general concensus, however,
was that crinolines should be
worn in moderation. A gentle bil-
lowing effect is graceful and at-
tractive, but an excess is disliked
because "it makes coeds look like
In keeping with the current
trend, beach jackets are also gaily

flowers, has the added attraction
