No, those girls seen in the slick
white jackets and navy blue skirts
every Monday do not just happen to
be dressed alike. They are the se
lect group of women chosen from
this year’s senior class to be mem

look closely you will see the small

their jacket pockets.
They receive this recognition by
being outstanding on the campus,
both in leadership and scholarship.

Fall Fashions
The big weekend is over, but
there is always another one to look
forward to. Foremost in the mind of
every coed is the problem of what
to wear on tni3 weekend's date. The
ever popular short silks and dressy
coats will be our subject for this
week’s column.
Saturday night's dance was a ver
itable fashion show. Black, as usual,
was the most popular shade for date
dresses. A flash of trimming added
the spark. Crepe was predominate,
and the styles were right in the
height of fashion. We saw the glim
mer of sequins and shimmering
lame. Many of the dresses featured
all sequin bodices, and some were
peppered with bright colored bead
Postwar Material
Lame, almost forgotten about
during the war, is back with us and
definitely in the limelight. Gold, es
pecially, has made a hit. It is being
featured on black or brown dresses
as a sleeve, neck, or belt trimming.
Simple but stunning are the se
verely plain black crepes which fea
ture the sheath or drape effects. In.
the minority, but outstanding, are
the bright colored crepes, electric
blue and shocking pink. Emerald
green is another color not to be for
Wools are being worn this fall,
for .the dressiest occasions. Soft
wool jerseys in pastel colors are
suitable for any date. Some wools
are designed for more formal wear
by following the styles with drapes,
folds, and sparkling trims.
Simple, Yet Smart
Simplicity of line and design can't
help but mean a smart coat. The
perennial black chesterfield seems
to be the favorite for any event.
Oregon coeds wear these coats for
sport and dress, and even as a for
mal wrap.
Fur trimmed cloth coats are beau
tiful, and many girls can be seen
wearing them. Smartest this year
are those with tuxedo fronts, either
in the finger-tip or full length.
A chill’s a thrill for gals who are
lucky enough to own a fur coat.
Eeaver, muskrat, and leopard are
the leading furs with the college
set, because they are so versatile
and can be worn with any color or
