'Beach Ball'
To Be Given
Before Exams
League To Present
3rd Annual Dance
In Ballroom Setting
A beach scene, similar to the
kind found in sunny Florida and
California, will be discovered by
couples attending the 3rd annual
"Beach Ball" which will be held
from 9 p.m. to midnight, August 3,
in the League Ballroom.
Dancing will take the place of
sun tanning and swimming for
the evening, but students will be
reminded of a typical waterfront
atmosphere as they whirl among
sea serpents, fish nets, beach balls
and sailboats.
GAILY DECORATED tables ca-
nopied with beach umbrellas will
line the dance floor and refresh-
ments will be available.
Lemonade will be served in
the League garden, weather per-
mitting. The Rumpus Room in
the basement of the League will
also be open for serving refresh-
ments.
No admission will be charged
for the record dance which will be
a dressy, but informal event.
TRADITIONALLY, the League
summer council has given a for-
mal each summer on the last week
end before finals. Two years ago,
because of the heat and informal-
ity of the times, a casual warm
weather "Beach Ball" was inau-
gurated.
Ken Norman and his orchestra
played for last year's event. The
council decided to use records for
this summer's dance as they want-
ed to have no admission charge.

GOING TO THE DOGS:
'Poodle Cloth' To Be Favorite
For Fal, Winter Coat Fabrics

Hair Tinting Becomes Increasingly Popular

NEW STOCKING STORY:
Fas hion's Influence Brings
Applique, Jewels to Hosiery

A coed's new fall or winter coat
will be as shaggy as her dog Fido's
if she wants to be on the ground
floor of the new fashion trend.
For the first time in fashion
history, women are going to try
to look like dogs next year, say
New York designers.
INITIAL SHOWING of fall coat
collections bear out designers' pre-
dictions. The new winter coats
will be so bulky and shaggy that
the wearer may be hard to find
underneath it all.
"Poodle Cloth," in a score of
different textures and called by
as many names, is the particu-
lar pet of the designers this
year. They present it in great-
coats, jackets, suits and dresses,
usually in neutral canine colors
and realistic textures.
Garment manufacturers prelict
that the new poodle coats are go-
ing to make mink old-fashioned,
and that every smart woman will
demand canine cloth instead of
furs next fall.
*. * *.
FATHERS AND husbands will
not jump for joy, however, as they
will find the clothes bills higher
than ever. Clothes in general, and
woolen ones in particular, are go-
ing to cost more next year.
One New York manufacturer
explains the situation as thus:
"In the fashion field, there
is one fact which is all too cer-
tain-wages and materials have
risen and have reached new
heights.
"It is generally expected that
the public will pay these increases.
The public, however, resists pay-
ing an obvious price rise . .. If a
dress that formerly sold for $20
now has to bring more, it would
be sound business to sell it for
still a little more and use the dif-
ference to build it into a better
garment.
S* -.
"TAKING COGNIZANCE of this
basic truth, in creating this collec-
tion, I didn't think of what price
mach dress must sell for, but ra-
ther, no matter what we have to
sell it for, does it look worth the
price? My clothes look more ex-
pensive and more luxurious than
ever before."

Despite little basic silhouette
change, fall clothes have a com-
pletely different look because of
the new fabrics and textures,
the bulky look of coats, the fuz-
zy look of suits and dresses.
In coats, the balanced pyramil
is a new outline. One model which
will be featured all around with
raglan sleeves caught tight at the
wrists to give the new oval arm
and shoulder line.

Cleopatra took society by storm
when she dipped her hair in a
henna dye.
Overnight, her titian locks start-
ed a new rage, and the price of
Egyptian Henna soared higher
than the pyramids.
* * *
BUT CLEO'S excursion, into hair
coloring was only a commercial
ripple compared with what -the
hair dye manufacturers say they
are doing to 50 million United
States women.
Hair dye's manufacturers are
vigorously splashing color all
over each other as they fight
for a consumer market that

gives$150 million yearly to beau-
ty parlors for tinting "women's
crowning glory."
They are tinting men's "crown-
ing glories" too. Beauticians re-
port that men are flocking in back
doors. One company claims that
10 per cent of its sales are keeping
the grey out of gentlemen's tem-
ples.
ANOTHER COMPANY says that
an estimated $100 million is now
being spent in beauty parlors for
hair tinting.
At first the beauty parlor crew
were scared sillier than some of

their colors. Here, they thought,
was another "home permanent
threat.
They forget, however, that the
home permanent business boosted
the parlor business. In 1950,
beauty shop permanent waving
jumped 20 per cent over the pre-
vious two years, for the home perQ
man ent boom made Women per-
manent-wave conscious, including
many who did not want to fuss
with the intricacies of home wav-
ing.
Hair stylists have also comment-
ed on the rise in their businesses
since hair coloring entered the
fashion picture.

Fashions in hosiery change as
do fashions in clothes.
This is a new concept in stock-
ings, say the manufacturers. As
recently as a little over a year ago
stockings were selected by color
and weight alone.
THE STORY is different today,
say designers. New heel treatments
and unusual decorative notes have
made it necessary that more care
be given to choosing hose that will
complement a particular costume.
"The picture-frame heel was
brought out a little over two
years ago, completely changing,
the concept in stockings. Hosiery
sparkling with rhinestones and
other jewels, or patterned with
dark applique were also intro-
duced as stocking decorations.
Among next fall's hosiery trends
will be a stocking called Bowknot,
which will sport a small bow of
amber bugle heads with a topaz
center hand sewn at the instep.
This stocking fashion is designed
specifically for the rich cham-
pagne to brown satins that will dot
the after-dark scene. Bowknot will
also be popular for the high fash-
ion brown-with-black.
* * *
LATE-DAY FASHIONS for the
short evening dress will feature+
such designs on hosiery as a gold-

v\
en bee with wings outspread. De-
corations such as this one will be
as washable as thestocking itself
as the design is applied by a pro-
cess that permanently fixes fab-
ric to nylon.
In tune with the Spanish in-
fluence, one stocking called To-
reador will feature a dagger
clock of black electronic appli-
que studded with emerald and
ruby colored stones.
Taking a cue from shoe trends,
namely the shell pump, a stock-
ing will be ornamented with a
rhinestone bow set low at the cen-
ter front. The bow is intended to
create the effect of a buckle just
above the shoe contour.
