THE DAILY COLLEGIAN Joe College Views Women's Clothing A man's opinion of the coed's wardrobe is conpidered so import ant that various shops this year invited college men to preview campus attires throughout the country. Ultra-collegiate outfits were viewed with approval but the men candidly claimed "some girls just can't wear sports clothes." One BMOC praised sweaters in natural shades and okayed the 'White shirt which is becoming tops. However, high wedgies are taboo on campus because they're termed too "clumsy." Unanimous approval was given to white and all-black evening dresses but the conservative men shied away from red velvet saying it was "nice 'but a bit flashy." Plaids and tweeds took first place in masculine admiration. College- women agreed on that point but they all seemed to have a place in their hearts for the red velvet.

PAGE THREE Grooming Tips For Chic Women A well-dressed woman is judged not alone by what she wears but by how she wears it. Fashion mag azines notwithstanding, last year's clothes can look just as smart as the new models with a bit of at tention to details and a small amount of proper care. First essential in good grooming is pressing. Woolens, silks, taffeta. and linen should be ironed on the wrong side with a damp (not wet cloth. Velvet should be turned in side out and steamed. Stubborr pleats may be pressed on-the right side, first with a damp cloth ane then with a dry one, but never• without some protection betweer the iron and material. Airing and brushing immediate ly after ' wear will lessen the amount of pressing no end. Sweaters should he aired and folded carefully and placed in a drawer with plenty of space to prevent crushing. They may be laundered as frequently as neces sary if blocked with an iron. Leather and alligator shoes wil keep their luster longer if polishec often. Scrapes and scratches ma: , be hidden with a dab of iodine or brown shoes or ink on black. Shot trees are a must and should be placed immediately after wearing Dust is better averted than re moved from hats and a hatbox is the best precaution. Tissue paper inside the crown and around the brim will preserve the shape of r. hat beautifully.
