Clothes Better Than Line
Fine Feathers Outdo

They tell you, that is the pro
fessors do, that the way to a wo
man’s heart is via a delightful per
sonality of your own.
Now it ain’t proper to argue with
educators right before final ex
ams if one hopes to hide his ig
norance, but it’s the well-dressed,
handsome young Esquire who gets
all the ferns on this here campus,
in case the professors really get
right down to cases.
Take Betty, and she was a case
No. 1. She was beautiful, intelli
gent, and could toss the guff with
the best of them. Did she choose
for her dream man a Phi Bete?
Not for her dough . . . Did she go
for a “He's not so hot looking and
doesn’t dress too well, but omigosh
what a personality” deal ? Quit
She grabs herself off a fresh
He spells cat with a "k.”
He adds two and two together
and gets somewhere in the neigh
borhood of six or seven.
He uses his hands to eat with
instead of those funny-looking
metal things with prongs on them,
But ... he smells like he just
stepped out of a tub of bath salts
and forgot to dry off ... he makes
the pictures in Esquire blush with
mortification when he stares at
them, dressed like sin . . . and he
walks with the debonair stride ot

So, to give the males on this here
kampus a break, so they can come
back spring term and really make
the most of their opportunities -
scholastically and socially - here’s
the consensus, gathered after an
extensive survey of campus coeds.
Both of them were emphatic
about their opinions.
First, when you start in dressing
to go with some frail who parks
her chassis in one of the best
houses on the campus—the one
that did get above a 2-point GPA
—begin from the bottom.
Wear shoes, even if you hail
fro mTigard, Lakeview, or Port
land. Your feet will hurt when
you first put them on, but you'll
get used to them by degrees if
you put your sole into it.
If it’s just a coke date you don’t
have to change sox; but if you
really want to make an impression
put on a new pair even if the
month isn’t up, and you’ll be sur
prised how much difference it
makes. You may even get another

Sports clothes will again reign
over king spring. A new sports
coat and suitable slacks are in or

kinds of sweaters are suggested
for campus wear. A new suit would
be nice as suits are always prac

trasting shades will probably be
the most popular. These clothef

Around the campus again we’ll
find every one wearing saddles—
either brown and white or black
and white. Moccasins are also very
comfortable and popular to wear
to class. Every type of dress shoe
is available—wing type, military
type, smooth or rough surfaces
are available at Powell Edbloom.

Maybe you thought a good suit HAD to cost a
lot of money. Well, try this: Come on down to
Wards. Slip into a Darien suit. Notice how well
the coat fits. How it broadens your shoulders,
slims your waist. See how full cut and comfort
able the trousers are. (They’re zipper-fastened,
too!) See how smart every pattern is. And we
bet you’ll agree that Darien’s quality is a match
for suits selling elsewhere for $22 and even more!
