Pillow Cases and Sheets at Special Prices SHU AXAIA-ZIIS and discussi; tiii: tunic rx IUOATIOX TO THE MOMI-iVr MODC Tunics are with us once aqaln tunics long and tunics short. The extremely narrow skirt always pro duces an epidemic of tunics, because the scant width demanded around the feet will pan the broader por tion of the figure around the hips, if a fuller tunic isn't dropped over the kirt. This is the "raUon d'etre" of tunics. From the skirt tunics wo wander Into the ornamental tunica. Under the Renlus of a designer, a tunic cm be transformed into the feature of a frock. It is remarkable how a de signer can take the sleeve, the neck, the cklrt or even the belt of the Kown and put so much oripinality into a part of the dress that the whole costume is individualized by the treatment. I like to watch the evolution of a dress in the workroom, when I'm lucky enough to have time to invade this sanctum. Sometimes the designs are worked out in sketches by our pretty little artist, Mrs. FYazee, un der the instruction of Mme. Frances. Again, madame will take a bolt of wonderful velvet, and standing be fore a mirror will wrap it around her own lovely figure and "Presto:" she has decided on just the line of a novelty gown. F.ut I was ppeaking of tunics, wasn't 1? The model of dark blue trlcotine shown here is the reason for dwelling on that idea. Four graduate tunics make the feature of this gown, you will cbserve. These tunics k are faced with red hroad cloth, though putty-colored cloth would make a beautiful contrast. The blouse Is made with a box plait down the front which fastens with black bone buttons. Three plaits are laid on either side of this box plait. The center back of the blouse j is also plaited in the same way. ! A cording of blue tricotine finishes the square neck across the front. You will love this collar of butcher's lin j en which givet? a crisp schoolgirl air to the neck. Cuffs of linen turned back on the plain, tight sleeve, which carry double cuffs of blue. These cuffs are inspired by the tu nics and lined with red. The narrow box plait which runs down the front of the blouse con tinues alor.p the center line of the skirt. This plait also carries a row of bone buttons. The belt which is worn with this dres im one of the leather belts we have used so much this season. In thiH belt patent leather ornamented with silver nail heads add another touch to a costume which, although essentially tailored, is also quite dressy plough for any daytime wear.. Y(ni will love the hat which is worn with this gown. Its crown is like the hat of a Chinese mandarin. It differs, however, from the head- pear of an oriental lord, in that it sports a pom-pom made of ostrich feathers. The brim of blue velvet Is scallop ed, and turns up all the way around. This arrangement of the brim gives a chance to show the hair in a very becoming manner. A bat which rolls and shows the oiffure is always youthful. Noire Dame News The latest addition to the collec tion of relics in the Lemmonier library at the University of Notre Dame Is a gavel made of a calibash tree, under which Thoma Moore, the Irish poet, wrote his master piece.

Bui Any person walkinK down Michi gan Pt. Sunday afternoon could easily have imagined that It was Easter. Spring was in the air, and warm sunshine bathed the town with its welcome rays. Father and mother, hon and dearie, in fact everybody who was ablö to walk ame down town. Those who start ed for the movie shows changed their minds and stayed outside. Girls were prettily dressed, many of whom had their soldier boy hero on parade, but In this case, the parade was vastly different for the khaki-clad youth than those in whicli he formerly walked, head erect, eyos to the front, arms swinging- naturally and at a cadence of 120 steps to the minute. The walking habit was very con tagious, and as we joined the pro cession and promenaded about for a while, the thought occurred to us that mot of the hoys are back. Surely there has been no time dur ing tho past year and a half when so many young m"n have appeared in I RIOTS I of tonal beauty. "Key of Heaven", 1 p an old Knßlis'r. melody, ensagini? in 1 L its rhythm and "The Shepherdess, j by Horsman, closed the croup. The) encore which was graciously pro- j vided was the familiar "Long. Inc; ; Ago", into which Mrs.' Ueach put j such rral musicianship that it was j indeed, what the words literally ; mean when one says "simply bauti-j ful." The singer's second group 'asj. , . , n n II 4 presented with similar success and mods nam bureaus as baiiot- was closed with two of those juainl Oil III MANY Negro spirituals, "Standin' in de Need o Prayer", and "I Want to b Ready". These won ready response from the audience, which wns in clined to insist upon more. Miss Weber's accompaniments were uniformly sympathetic- and artistic, revealing the hreaIh of h r muieianhip. Mr. Dolk presented two roupi, opening with a number by dounod, "Au Priuteinps" and following with Schuecker's "Mazurka". In bis se cond group were a '"Valso Caprice" on an ing Goes on Airmen Drop Leaflets. LOXOo.Y. Jan. 2'.
