hey’re showing so many tunie

rowns, dark greens and rusts,
like hi"h waist lines, and fitted

“You don’t? Hansel and Gretel?

“What am I wearing to dinner
is evening? Mv black satin, of
urse! Satin is in again—for din
r, street and Sundav afternoons,
lack seems to predominate for
e color, but white and reefs are
so shown a lot.
“Of course, I think so. Evening
ess is every hit as important as
mmis clothes, tho’ every coed

Lggerated shoulder, slender
ist and flared shirt and not

th that military heel; and the

“Small hats, high waists, full
irts and buckles and buttons
like ‘fishes’ and such are certainly
leading the Dame Fashion parade.
With colored hankies and hats and
different shoes, one can certainly
change the looks of her suits and
dresses. That’s the beauty of cam
pus clothes—and accessories. One
dress,with a new scarf or belt and
different coats can be worn end
lessly and still look different.
“Yes, clothes are lovely and it's
fun to have a lot of them, but
seriously, Kay, this idea of a college
wardrobe has been over-played. If
your clothes are becoming to you
and are kept nicely they can be
worn and worn and still you can
look grand. People, even college
boys and girls, never tire of seeing
the same thing if it's in style and
is worn well. I’m all in favor of
buying double-duty clothes and
formals that can be worn the year
round. A formal, a dinner dress, a
street outfit, a dress-up dancing
dress of Sunday afternoon type,
and sweaters and skirts and
blouses and jackets for campus
wear are clothes enough really. A
tricky hat or two, matching gloves
and a few knick-knacks like
unique buttons and belts—they add
a touch of smartness, and I still
insist you don’t need to dress like
Jean Harlow or Joan Crawford. If
you’ve money, have clothes and
clothes and clothes! If you’ve a
limited budget buy discriminately
— remember quality before
“Heaven’s! It’s almost 4 o’clock;
guess I’ll slip into my lounging
pajamas and fix my nails—huh?
Yes, lounging pajamas are com
fortable and inexpensive, too—wish
sometimes we could wear them to
classes. Who’s silly—oh! I was only
kidding. Say, you’d better scoot—
you’ll be late for tea and anyhow,
I’m tired of talking—I don’t know
what got me going on clothes this
past few minutes—guess it’s be
cause you look so nice.
“Put on your sweetest smile,
Kay. After all it isn’t your clothes
that’s selling you—it’s you your
self. Clothes help, of course, but
they really are secondary to per
sonality and—will you leave ? I’m
getting started on philosophy now!
Good bye, Kay.”

In order that you may get a
more comprehensive slant on
clothes and accessories for this
fall, it is necessary to list the dif
ferent articles of clothing separ
ately so as to avoid confusion.
Almost half the suits sold this
fall will be in the double breasted
model in plain backs with perhaps
a center vent or side vents. Sport
or belted back suits will still be
shown in single breasted models
and will continue to be very strong.
However, the backs will not be as
fancy as in the past but much
plainer, in many cases with noth
ing more than a belt and tucks at
the waistline. The English drape
coat with plain back, both in the
single and double breasted models
with pleated trousers, will undoubt
edly be the preferred style.
These suits will be made up in
two-tone stripes, chalk stripes,
glen plaids, cheviots, and shetlands,
depending upon the model chosen.
Fall overcoats will be shown in
loose English raglan models, some
with the military collar and some
with the conventional notch lapel.
The wrap around coat has been re
placed with one very similar except
that it will have buttons. The wrap
around belt will still be used. Polo
coats will continue to be in de
mand. The fabrics used in these
different coats will vary due to the
model. However covert fleece and
gabardine cloths will be widely
In shirts and neckwear, the but
ton-down and wide spread collar
will without a doubt lead the
field. These will be made up in
stripes and bright colors as well
as plain. Neckwear will be colorful,
more so than any year thus far,
with stripes and wide spaced fig
ures both in silk and wool pre
Shoes for fall will be much the
same as in the past: suede or buck
skin with crepe soles for campus
or general wear, the heavy brogue
for wet weather, and the black or
tan calfskin in cap toe or wing tip
style for dress.
The snap brim hat in rougher
finishes and mixtures, some with
bound edge and some with plain
should be part of your wardrobe.
The Hamburg hat is favored for
For general campus all around
wear, the traditional “frosh pants,”
“sophomore pants,” and “cords”
can never be replaced. Odd sport
coats, leather jackets and sweat
ers complete this campus outfit.
A fellow does not have to be a
millionaire to be well dressed, but
can select a wardrobe conserva
tively and inexpensively and still
have an outfit for any occasion.

Admiral Byrd, one of the most
noted explorers of the modern age,
will present his movies of his
second expedition to Little Amer
ica sometime in January, accord
ing to Ralph S. Schomp, director
of educational activities who is ar
ranging the current program.
At least one and possibly two
more top-notch attractions will be
booked for the series. Negotiations
are now under way with several
individual music stars, including
Nino Martini and Lily Pons.
Appearances of the University
of Oregon symphony orchestra,
directed by Rex Underwood, and
the University concert band, will
be held this year in the school of
music auditorium instead of Me
Arthur court, Schomp revealed.
They will be features of a "little
concert series,” which will also in
clude several outside attractions.
Members of the associated stu
dents will be admitted free upon
presentation of student body cards
to all concerts and lectures.
