Color Popularity Rises
New colors have also been add-
ed. "Many of the girls this year
Y ave been asking for blues, aquas,
yellows or reds in the, trench
coat," a local merchant com-
ments. Tartan plaids are also
rising in popularity in the trench.
Coeds tend too be fairly con-
servative, and most choose colors
and styles which are adaptable'
to school and date wear - thus
the trench coat, in style, taste and
color fits the coed's wardrobe. in
Although many coats are fea-
tured in washable dacron and cot-
ton, other materials such as faille
or gabardien are prevalent in the
dressier trench coat.
Poplin syles,' several with
bright plaid linings, continue to
be best trench-coat sellers for the

With the soft breezes of summer

ing comes the perennial question of
Etiquette experts claim that
manners away from home are best
revealed in tipping procedures. For
ships, planes and trains there are
definite rules to be followed. -
Just before disembarking from
a ship and beginning to tour, a
passenger tips the room steward,
table steward, headwaiter, wine
steward and the 'deck and bath
Rates for tipping are becoming
standardized with certain amounts
specified. One expert says that the
steward who has taken care of
your room, the table steward and
the head waiter expect to receive
from $7.50 to $10 per person.
Deck stewards, bath stewards,
cabin boys and the "boots" receive
one dollar or more depending on
the service which they have ren-
dered. Tips for these may be given
at the time of service or at the end
of the voyage.
On most ships the chief steward
is classed as a ship's officer and,
as such, is never tipped.
For those traveling by plane the
problem of tipping is not so com-
plex. No member of a plane crew
is ever tipped, as all have a pro-
Tip Sky Caps
When you pick up your luggage
at the destination, the airline
provides porter service from the
plane into the checkout area.
These are staff porters and are
not tipped, but porters (sky caps)
who take over from them and
carry your luggage to waiting
limousines or taxis are tipped ap-
proximately $.25 per bag.
On soie planes there is a charge
per meal. It is important to deter-
mine this before taking off. Meals
are always served on the interna-
tional flights as part of the cost
Red Caps, Porters
Train travel involves the tipping
of red capsin railroad stations be-
fore boarding the train, as well as
tipping the porter and steward in
the dining car.
In most terminals redcaps re-
ceive a standard price per bag, as
much as $.25 in large cities. An
additional tip is usual where the
service has been prompt, courteous
In areas where redcaps do not
receive a set fee, a minimum of
ten cents per bag is expected in
addition to a tip of a quarter or
more, depending on the amonut
and weight of the bags.
On trains, as well as in res-
taurents, the tip left for dining,
service is between 15% to 20% of
the total bill and never less than
a quarter, etiquette experts say.
Restaurent tipping need never
embarrass the diner if he remem-
bers certain rules. Tipping shouldT
be done in an unobvious manner atC
the end of the meal. The waiter isr
generally the recipient of the tip,I
but on certain occasions the head-
waiter, if special service has been
given, is thanked and given a token
in the form of a tip.I

The chemise is a slip designed

Choose one in white tricot with a

most complete job of covering.
Its excess is buffed off after dry-
ing with a cotton square.
For a lighter foundation, choose
an oil and powder blend in liquid
form. Use without powder for a
glowing look, or add powder if you
want a mat finish.
Rouge should be applied spar-
ingly over foundation. Dot on with
fingertips over the cheekbone,
then blend out toward the temple.
Keep rouge high, and near the eye.
Powder, too, calls for a light
touch. Consistent coverage, even
on lips and eyelips, helps to set
lipstick and eye shadow later.
