On t4e a e n
DESPITE the sticky weather, fashion magazines are featuring news
about fall clothes. The NewLook is supposed to be out the win-
dow in the fall, but from the looks of the styles displayed, it will only
be sticking its head out. "New" warm colors are featured for fall
wear, bright orange, warm browns and the varied greens. Loose swing-
ing jackets will be featured side by side with the pencil line suits.
Capes will still be fashionable and there won't be much of a differ-
ence in the length of hems in every style dress.
STILL in the throes of hot weather, despite the showings of maga-
zines and the local stores,, cotton clothes are uppermost in the
minds of coeds. One of the most practical materials for summer
clothes is the corded fabric. It wears well, washes and irons beauti-
fully and has the crisp, cool look. Not recommended for the very,
very hot days.
* * *
M ADEMOISELLE magazine has some interesting tips on how to
keep cool. The only inexpensive tip offered is the one about
having a cool "attitude." Others include skin fresheners, sharply
cool cologne, cool cottons, food, drinks, frills and feet.
THE UPCOMING summer formal should be turning coed's thoughts
to cotton evening gowns. Local shopping so far has not been too
fruitful along that line. We have seen though, ingenious patterns for
hot-weather formals which range from strapless numbers to off-the-
shoulder, midriff gowns. The patterns are simpler than they look and
a few diligent hours of work can turn any coed into the belle of the
I_- - -

Now that the hot summer
weather is striking its full muggy
force, women will be grateful to
those hair-stylists who dreamed
up the New Look haircut.,
In addition to ridding women of
sticky, heavy hair at the nape of
the neck in these hot days, the
short hair cut, presents a sleek,
cool look. Easy to take care of, the
new haircut looks neat and so-
phisticated as' well.
Variations on the Theme
Variations on the shortie hair-
cut can be adapted to almost any
occasion. Slight bangs and the
short pagetboy which iscut to
slant up at, the sides from the
neck to ears is a popular style
for business women who want that
trim appearance.
College women favor the casual
bang and soft curls. For more
formal occasions, the haircut can
be glamorized by sweeping the
hair from the sides to the top of
the head in short, demure curls.
Long Hair Advice
Women who still can't bear to
cut their long hair, can achieve
the same look in a few extra min-
utes. For hair that is over eight.
inches long, the classic middle


part and sleek ear buns achieve
charming and unusual effect. The
hair is brushed away from the
middle part and downward in
Combing it back to a point
about an inch behind the ear, an-
chor the hair firmly with a tooth
comb and be sure the teeth are
slanted forward. Thenr pull the
hair away from the front and to-
ward the back, twisting it into a
rope all the way to the very ends.
Then swing the rope forward be-
low the tuck comb and coil it flat-
ly over the ear. Secure it firmly
into place with hairpins. Arrange
the left coil in the saie way.
Careful Grooming
Whether short'hair or long hair,
achieving the same effect, careful
grooming is still essential for the
New Look. The hundred-stroke
brush routine, resulting in gleam-
ing hair, heightens the -Aeekness
of the look.
Cowlicks spoil the effect of the
New Look, but the part can be
arranged so that, they are no
longer a problem. The most satis-
factory part curves from the
temple, right into the cowlick at
the crown.





The changing character of the
women's force, of great impor-
tance to management, is gaining
stability from two sources, the
magazine Business Week reports.
"First of all, it comes from a
steadily growing percentage of
older women in jobs (slightly more
than half today are 35 years old
or more), and secondly, from an
increase in married women work-
ers (46 per cent of the women
job holders today are married.)
"Reasons listed forkthe increase
in married women workers by the
Women's Bureau of the Depart-
ment of Labor are: (1) There's
been a marked change in the so-
cial attitude toward working
wives. (2) Because of high living
costs, families now require more
income. (3) There are relatively
fewer unmarried women in the
employable age brackets than be-
fore the war-in other words,
girls are getting married faster
"Also more women are becom-
ing independent business women."
