We hope this column will help
answer the eternal question,
“What shall I wear?” We don't
wish to dictate fashion, but
merely to state the standard
dress for each occasion—that
which has found favor with the
Average coed. This standard will
naturally vary, according to each

team is the victim, and campus
clothes are in order. Of course,
if one is catching a late show af
ter the game, dressy wools and
heels may be worn, especially if
its a Saturday night date.
"Of Mice and Men” makes its
appearance on the campus Friday
and Saturday nights, and the ma
jority of women will,wear short
silks and heels to the perform
Wednesday night desserts us
ually require short silks or
dressy wools and heels, and some
coeds will wear fur coats if their
house is the one being asked out.
Dress coats are perfectly proper,
however, and may be worn on
many other occasions.
Oh yes, if you’re going to the
Nickle Hop next Thursday, you
should make it heels and dressy
wools, a suit, or an extra nice
skirt and long sleeved white
Campus clothes, that is, low
heeled shoes, sweaters and skirts,
■^5r the equivalent, are the thing
for midweek and Friday night
shows, but this is purely optional.
For Saturday night and Sunday
afternoon theater dates, it is the
custom to “dress up.” But if your
date wants to dress casually—
don’t cross him.
Remember that it’s better to be
under-dressed than over-dressed,
and make simplicity the keynote
of your costume.

Gee, it’s January, and so cold
you crave a hint ahead of a sum
mer season. Oregon coeds give
that hint when they turn out at
the ROTC dance in white wools,
red shoes, and green shoes. Soon
they’ll be wearing Panamanian
hair ornaments made of silver
thread and pearly fish scales.
They’ll be also wearing them in
large clusters on each side of the
head a la Chinese. . . .

If your wardrobe has that mid
term slump—how about sparking
it with an item from the boy
friend’s collection. Borrow that
apple-green or bright blue sweat
er (what if the shoulders do
droop) and push up the sleeves.
It may not fit but it’s the last
word in smartness.
