EASTER CHAPEAUS-Whether milady prefers the large cartwheel or a petite pill box hat, she'll
find it this spring in straw. Modeling three popular versions are from left to right, Barbara Green-
field, '56, Bert Peacock, '55, and Na'ncy Kovack, '55.

Coeds do buy hat-s.
Many students will indulge in
a new bonnet for the Easter sea-
son. The styles they'll- see this
spring will be either very large or
tiny in size.
Mrs. Anya Finkel, a local buyer,
explained, "More girls are learn-
ing to wear hats to improve their
personality and appearance and
to learn to meet the public on the
public's terms."
Larger Styles Featured
The larger hats, which look best
oh coeds with long hair, are either
picture hats or sailor styles with
large rolled brims. The smaller
hats are pill boxese with "loads"
of tiower trimmings. Most styles
this season rest near the front of
the head.
Multi-colored straw is the prin-
cipal fabric this year, with flower
trimmings all the rage. Many
stores are showing pastel-colored
hats with a single matching flow-
er tilted across the brim.
Many chapeaus this season
make good use of avocado green,
introduced as a new color in the
fall. The old standbys-navy, blue
and black-are still favorites.
White., trimming decorates the
darker colors, with yellow, laven-
der and pink favorites among the
pastel shades.
Large and small polka dots dec-
orate many hats. Some are dabbed
on ribbons and veils, while others
can be seen covering the whole

hat. Few feathers are noticed, but
salesclerks say "more will appear."
For regular special events Uni-
versity men and women are apt to
disagree with the fashion experts
on fiats. As one freshman, Marilyn
Carnegie, '58, said, "Hats in Ann
Arbor's rainy weather are imprac-
tical and a nuisance. The only
hat I would consider wearing is
the one that goes with my slicker!"
Michigan men agree. George
Bard, '56, commented, "I'm not
fond of hats for two reasons: first,
they are impractical and second,
some hat fashions are very silly."
Men Voice Opinions
Another student, Howard T.
Howard, '58SM, declared, "I don't
like to see hats on women. I'd
rather see their hair-not hats on
top of the hair."
Gil Wolter, '57E, summed up
the case when he said, "It's just
a matter of personal taste, but I
don't go for hats!"
"The reason coeds don't wear
hats more often, Beverly Hough-
ten, '56, maintained, "is that they
aren't socially accepted here. We
hesitate to wear hats on a date for
fear of being laughed at. I wear a
hat to church and believe that{
everyone should."
Experts Advise
According to the experts, best
taste exacts that in town a hat
be worn with street clothes in the
daytime, especially in church.

Smart Styles
Enter Spring
Shoe Picture
Soft Pastel Leathers,
New Fabric Materials
Gain Fashion Honors
By JANET JAGUSCH
Flattering color, novel mater-
ials, and smart styling captivate
the spring shoe picture.
Soft pastels in leather and liz-
ard are sweeping the country.
This spring pink stands out as the
best bet for shoe fashion honors.
Vivid reds and blues highlight'
milady's dark costumes. Warm
honey calfs compliment her brown
ensembles. Green and brown
tones are artistically blended into
such delightful combinations as
avocado, coffee-frost, pine, and
sapling.
Lady of Pearl Introduced
Besides the emphasis on color,
shoe manufacturers are introduc-
ing new fabrics. The Panama
lady of pearl is a stunning addi-
tion to the patent leather family.
As its name implies, it closely re-
sembles the sheen and luxury of
a cultured pearl.
Vinylite enters the picture in
open, airy styles. Luster calf
with a silky smoothness and glis-
tening luster is both smart and
lovely. Prospective buyers will
find it difficult to resist these re-
freshing additions to their shoe
wardrobe.
Styling this spring on the whole
combines high fashion and solid
comfort. The modified Spanish
toe gives a definite illusion of
slenderness. American women
now may purchase this shoe with
the pointed toe effect but without
the discomfort of the conventional
pointed toe.
Straps, Slings Return
Halter straps and slings have
returned in number and occupy
a prominent position in the shoe
picture. Jeweled and plain mules
stand foremost in evening shoe
wear. The trend is definitely
more exposed, airy styles.
However, the opera pump re-
mains a favorite of many fashion
conscious women. White stitching
highlights many of the plain
styles, providing a slight contrast.
Versatility endears the pump to
women in all phases of life.
Straws and nylon mesh in com-
binations of tan, beige and white
will receive foremost play in later
months.
Indications from local stores
seem to imply that this spring's
shoe picture is extremely bright.

By MARJI BLUTTMAN
Those wonderful daydreams of
sunny days on Miami's golden
beaches and dancing under the
sultry night sky will soon come
true.
Hundreds of University women
will travel to famed resort spots
throughout the country this April.
Every means of locomotion will be
used from hitchhiking to a first-
class plane trip. The main prob-
lem is: what is the appropriate at-
tire?
The Florida-bound gal should
be stocked with cool cottons for
daytime or evening wear, either
in new pastel shades or printed
with modern motifs.
Flared Skirts
Always popular are strapless
dresses with flared skirts that
come with matching or contrast-
ing stoles. Several of the 1955
models consist of candy-striped,
scoop necked dresses in polished
cotton topped by orlon cardigans
with matching trim.
For afternoon strolling or sight-
seeing, Dior's H-line in blouse and
skirt ensembles is ideal. This lat-
est look has hit the realm of cot-
ton. It faithfully reproduces the
characteristics of its woolen or
tweed sister.
The slit in the slim skirt Is
there. This tropical edition also
demands one or more ropes of
Chanel beads. A chic dresser will
match her beads with the frames
of her all-important sunglasses.
Middy Swim Suits '
Bathing suits, which come in
middy and tank suit styles this
season as well as in the classic
modes, are perhaps the number
one items on every vacationer's
list. Shorts and pedal-pushers are
rarely worn because of the ex-
tremely hot midday sun.

Swim suits with matching jack-
ets or capes are ideal for both the
nautical and the non-swimmers.
Floppy straw hats provide won-
derful protection from the sun's
rays.
Footwear is as important in an
outfit as the dress Itself. Low-
heeled or flat sandals are perfect
for daytime or beach use, while
high-heeled models are made for
outdoor patio dancing. Plain fiats
and pumps are fine, if they are in
light or bold shades of leather.
Dark colors rarely look well, and
suede is absolutely passe! Warm
tones in sheer hose are best, in
seamless and sandal styles.
Moving on to Eastern resorts
such as Atlantic City, one finds
the vogue in dress quite different,
Here, because of cool ocean winds
and a more temperate climate,
clothing is heavier and more
spring-like.
Mornings on the Boardwalk will
be the scene of Bermuda and Ja-
maica shorts or pedal pushers in
such fabrics as denim, corduroy,
sailcloth and linen. Word with
sailor-boy blouses in jersey or ter-
ry-cloth, these casual fancy-pants
will give visitors to New Jersey's
Atlantic shores that authentic sea
faring touch.
Dresses in linen and rayon with
accompanying jackets are well-
suited for late afternoon. Dark
colors are brightened by the addi-
tion of well-chosen cotton gloves,
tote bags, shoes, cosmopolitan
jewelry and cloche hats.
Fleece Toppers
For cool evenings, a fleece top-
per in a new spring shade affords
ample protection against crisp
April weather in the East.
The Far West look this season
is sleek, long-lined and simple.
Popular in California is the one-

piece tube

BY THE BEAUTIFUL SEA:
Gay Attire for Sunny Resort Wear Introduced

In town at formal receptions,
teas, luncheons and meetings wom-
en guests usually keep hats on if
they have worn them. However,
the lack of a hat would, probably
not be remarked upon. Even at
formal luncheons the modern hos-
tess often suggests that guests
leave their hats with their coats.
Hats worn with dinner suits
or dinner dresses are intended to
remain in place throughout the
evening and are usually tiny
enough not to obstruct the view
of those behind one.
In the country when hats are
worn at all by women, they may
be removed with coats if desired.
At garden parties or at garden
weddings, it is a matter of pref-
erence whether a woman who has
been shown to a cloak room first
decides to remove her hat or leave
it on.
Probably the most novel mani-
cure product on the market at this
time is the new spray nail enamel.
Guaranteed to dry nail polish in
seconds, it has no harmful ef-
fects. It even contains a mild
antiseptic, thereby reducing the
risk of infection. Used after the
top coat has been applied, it will
protect nail polish from smudg-
ing.

ance in this style which is flatter-
ing in cotton knit, cotton and

Beach Clothes
Casual and beach clothes are
wonderful in California. Always in
good taste are Bermudas with

shirts in fabulous colors of flamin-
go, hyacinth, turquoise or topaz
gold.
Tall pyramid hats and brashly-
striped denim beach slacks are
common on the Coast. Also pair
lightweight kilties with cotton
knee-length socks.
Huge bags, hoods, beehive hats,
cork-heeled open toe footwear and
lightweight coats in gabardine or
rayon and nylon linen complete
the picture of the visiting coed.
South, East, West-they're all
wonderful. For North-bound trav-
elers, Ann Arbor winter clothing
is absolutely perfect. In any case,
bon voyage!
