McDivitt in Parade

Hippywear Makes'
The Michigan Scene

The largest and most loveable
parade in Michigan's history will
take shape this coming Friday.
What began as a vague attempt to1
fill in the aching gap left by th'e
loss of Michigras, has suddenly
blossomed into a full-fledged fes-
tival in its own right.
A vast array of assCrted stars
and celebrities were invited. And,
to the surprise of practically
everyone concerned, everyone in-
vited has accepted. This is cer-
tainly a new collegiate record.
Causing the most excitement will
be the arrival of alumnus James
McDivitt, Michigan's first space
walker. McDivitt, whose family
still resides in the state, said that
he was eager to return to them
and the campus scene. Plans for
the famous alumnus include a
ride in the parade and a luncheon
on Saturday. Gov. George Romney
will also be present to see the
University students and to meet
with Astronaut McDivitt.
On the distaff side, there will
be beauty queens and some lovely
Playboy Bunnies. The Bunnies are
genuine, imports from Detroit's
Heffner - approved Playboy Club.
The Go-Go girls, to be seen"on a
splendiferous Shindig float, were
selected from among Michigan's
student body. The contest drew
over 100 contestants, each with
her own supply of high-potential
Pony-energy, from which only 20
were selected. They will dance in
regulation cages on the float itself,
and will later be seen at the Fri-
day night dance accompanied by

the "Four Tops."
The parade Will begin at 3:30
p.m., from a point on Catherine
street in downtown Ann Arbor.
From there, it will wind through
the downtown area, following
Main street, Williams and Fifth
avenue. The caravan will make
the turn on Washington to make
its entrance onto the campus area.
It will cover the stretch of State
street between the Frieze Bldg.
and the Law Quadrangle, turning
up South University for its last
spurt. From South University, the
parade will turn into Church
street, where it will finally dis-
perse. The route has been plan-
ned for the utmost viewing pos-
sible, both by University students
and Ann Arbor residents.
There will be 60 units in all in
the parade. The order of appear-
ance is:

Fashion trends at Michigan are
not only set on Hill Street at the
Kappa house, but at the Union
MUG as well. This is the era of
hippywear, wherein the faded
army jacket is replacing the
"Villager" sweater.
The exciting thing about hippy-
wear is its extremely arbitrary
nature. The rigid tradition which
had girls wearing dresses and
boys wearing pants has been
broken. The bewildered singer who
questions, "Are you a boy or are
you a girl?" owes his confusion to
the new trend which refuses to
draw a line between the sexes. An
unwritten rule placesgall hippies
in jeans, thus challenging the in-
dividual to determine with whom
or with "what" he is going out
next Saturday night. In this age
of trial and tribulation we must
meet this challenge.
For the hippy who must walk
miles a day picketing the Detroit

Armory, fashion has enlisted the
blissfully comfortable tennis shoe.
For less animated work, such as
Fishbowl haranguing, open san-
dals are perfectly acceptable.
Unusual accessories play up the
somewhat muted look of faded
blue-jeans. Although the "sosh"
element on campus has taken over
the pierced ear, let it not be for-
gotten that pierced earrings were
given their big push in the many
jewelry stores which line the
streets of Greenwich Village.
Keeping in line with "equality of
the sexes" boys too are allowed to
wear earrings. A large gold hoop
through one ear is particularly
effective.
The MUG fashion leaders have
not forgotten their rich American
heritage. Though they often con-
demn American political policy,
they show their respect for their
Fatherland by sporting metal-rim-
med Ben Franklin glasses.

Geometry
Triumphs
Supreme
Long has mankind bewailed the
loss of womankind, to the dictates
of demon High Fashion. This year
is no different. Even Rudi Gein-
rich, a former crusader for an
honest female form with his sup-
er-decollatage and free-form un-
dergarments, has changed his
Habit. In the fall showings
throughout the United States and
Europe, Geinrich was only one
more voice in the general holler
for "straight-line design." This
season's Venus is a stylish piece
of plane geometry. Despite the
ever-narrowing space between the
hem and the neckline, the well-
dressed woman will maintain the
Wheatcake silhouette. The rea-
sons for this conspiracy of rulered
edges is probably technical. It
would take unparalleled genius to
give Sophia Loren an uncluttered
look. And that is just the prob-
lem-any curve, no matter how
appealing to the masculine gen-
der, is a circular abstraction, an
additional frill. To a school of de-
sign nurtured on winging rockets
and direct protest movements,
nothing could be more hideous.
Yves St. Laurent, whose prodigy
has kept the House of Dior su-
preme, has chosen the art of
Modrian as the basis for his new
fashion. Bold colored blocks and
rectangles are separated and neat-
ly sectioned by heavy black bor-
ders on a sleeveless shift. St.
Laurent caps his model with a felt,
all encompassing, dome, tied un-
der her chin. An alternate is the
rigid shelf of the same material,
fastened on perpendicular to the
head.
Courrege, the newcomer whose
spring collection last year literally
rocked the fashion world, has con-
tinued his successful design. It
features a thigh-high hemline, in
mimickery of a toddler's smock.
The dress is hung from diminutive
cap sleeves and a demurely squar-
ed neckline, to achieve the final
effect of a trapezoid.
Seventh Avenue, New York, has
been quick to pick up the thought.
Current releases bare the unmis-
takeable tang of Danish Modern.
