, The weather may still seem like
winter, but It Is spring according to
the calendar, and that is what Lin
coln's clothing stores are going by.
Spring and Easter fashions are
featured in window displays
throughout the city, showing the
variety of "looks" available to coeds
Colleen Ehman, a college represen
tative in Miller and Paine's Boutique,
predicted the popularity of pastel
dresses, especially those made of see
through voile, decorated with small
floral prints and French ribbon
designs. She also approved of big,
floppy hats to accent spring outfits.
Miss Mary Louise Babst, fashion
coordinator at Miller's, previewed
other aspects of the fashion scene.
SHE OBSERVED that the
Americana look of red, white and blue
will be big news this spring, but that
fashion designers have found many
new ways to use the bright colors
besides outdated suits.
The emphasis in sportswear is the
bare look with halter shifts, coutout
sundresses and bare midriff costumes.
Flare-bottom pants are expected to
maintain their popularity along with
new items such as polo shirts and
The wet look will be seen in clingy
blouses with wide collars and cuffs,
and in the short slicker jackets which
can be worn over bikinis for sailing
and swimming. Some stockings even
reflect the influence of the shimmery,
ONE PIECE SWIM suits are
becoming more important, according
to Miss Babst, but they differ from
the ones coeds remember from their
camp days. The new one-piecers are
cut low and cut-out in provocative
places, patterned with unusual designs
such as bulls eyes. Accents are often
at the waist. Miss Babst says that
often "cutouts make the suits sexier
Weather hampers baseball
by Mark Gordon
NU baseball coach Tony Shame
returned to Lincoln Sunday night with
four wins in six games at Houston
against Houston University. But he
left the most important ingredient for
a successful Big Eight season in Texas.
When Sharpe returned to
Nebraska's cold temperatures and
wintry conditions, he left friendly
sunshine annd warm weather, ex
plaining that the lack of baseball
weather is his main concern.
"We're hoping the weatherman
gives us a break," he added. "There's
nothing like practicing outside."
While Sharpe said he was amazed
at the team's success at Houston, he
idded, "We knew all along we had
i pretty good team, but you never
know how a team will do in game
onditions. He also said the squad
hit better than he had exptced.
NEBRASKA SCORED 26 runs in
cluding one 10-run performance and
another seven run outing, both of
which produced Husker victories.
Leading the way was third baseman
Tom Tidball with six hits, five RBIs
and one homer.
"The team kept their timing up
well," the coach said. "We could see
that they were more relaxed and con
fident in their hitting as the week
With only two seniors and six
returning lettermen, Sharpe said it
was amazing that NU handled so
many situations with a minimum of
errors. He added that four or five
mechanical miscues were made, but
as far as actual mechanics the
Huskers committed few mistakes.
In terming the freshman-dominated
pitching staff's performance a s
unbelievable, he credited freshmen
Gene Stohs and Paul Marek with ex
STOHS, A GRAND ISLAND native,
won two games yielding two runs in
12 innings, while Marek permitted one
hit and struck out seven batters in
eight innings in the 4-2 Husker
triumph in the series' finale last
Although senior pitcher Al Burby
faltered somewhat, Sharpe said the
left-hander was hit in the arm with

The look of the Thirties persists In
spring fashion, especially in the area
of accessories. Spring will be a season
when those little extras can make or
break an outfit, and Miss Babst
observed that accessories will be worn
Perhaps the most valuable single
accessory is the oblong scarf, or
dozen of them. They are worn almost
anywhere, with pants and dresses,
around the neck, waist or hips, or
tied around the head, gypsy or Indian
The chains which were so popular
last fall are still around, but in many

ROUND TOED, clunky heeled shoes
will still be seen, but sandals will
also put in an appearance, worn with
city clothes. Spectators, part of the
Thirties look, are adding a little height
to the heels.
Purses are soft and pouchy, with
"safari bags" being so popular that

Spring will see less texture in
hosiery with emphasis in subtlety.
Mis Babst added that see-through
clothes demand special consideration
regarding lingerie. Such conveniences
as panty hose, body stockings, bra
slips and garterless girdles should be
Miss Babst concluded that the
spring fashion season should be
particularly exciting, as it will be a
time that a girl can take any
particular look that appeals to her
and make it her own.
