'U' Coeds
Set Styles
For Hair
The fashion world has not yet
reared its ugly head on the hori-
zon and produced another year
of unfemale looking girls.
Women can do anythink with
their hair on the University cam-
pus they want (as evidenced by
the many coeds who do).
Hair can be sheared, shingled,
,straight, or stringently curly.
However, it will be on the head,
instead of towerin gabove.
Actually, if a girl wants to be
in fashion, she will be wearing
the flapper look. That is, short'
and plastered to her head like
she Just came out of the shower,
except for two large spit curls
encircling each ear.
The eternal page boy is still
around, as it has been since the
14th century, only this year it is
anchored semi-off the face with
a large barrett.
The girl who is "in the know"
(i.e. in an authentic handmade
ski sweater) will be wearing her
hair most likely in waves or soft
curls.
A certain amount of discrimin-
ating men have voiced the opin-
ion that theywished that bangs
would be "out" this year. "Unless
a girl has a face she wants to
hide, she shouldn't wear bangs,"
saith the men.
Hair will in general be around
the face, except for very formal
evenings, in which it can be piled
on top of, behind, or around the
head.

ALUMNI HALL-The University art museum holds a collection of art treasures ranging from pottery to Far Eastern silk screens, from
antique furniture to abstract sculpture, from classical to modern painting. In contrast to the outside of the building, which is classical
and solid, the inside has been transformed into a mobile modern gallery.
Museum Houses Growing Collection

By RISA AXELROD
From a small collection in the
South Wing of old University Hall,
the art treasures of the University'
have grown to between five and
ten thousand permanent pieces in
Alumni Memorial Hall, the Uni-
versity Art Museum.
Begun in 1855 by Prof. Henry
S. Frieze, the collection was
gathered in Europe to aid Frieze
in the lectures he was to give on
painting, sculpture and archi-
tecture.
The collection consisted mostly
of engravings, photographs and

plaster or terracota copies of
classical sculptures.
The original artifacts were
mostly classical, as the art col-
lection was an adjunct to the
Latin department until the depart-
ment of fine arts was established
in 1911.
The first important work in the
collection was a life-sized marble
statue, entitled "Nydia," by nine-
teenth century American sculptor
Randolph Rogers.
Shipped from Rome
The work was shipped to Ann
Arbor from Rome, where Rogers'

£ U

studio was located, through the
funds raised by a group of local
citizens, called the Rogers Art
Association.
The Unifersity alumni and
those people who paid an admis-
sion fee to view the statue in Uni-
versity Hall also helped pay for
its shipment.
Later, Rogers donated most of
the contents of his Rome studio.
to the University. However, due
to inadequate and scattered ex-
hibition space, almost all his
pieces disappeared within the next
half century.
The original collection was
moved to the North building of
University Hall in 1858 which
stood where Mason Hall standsf
today. There it remained for
twenty-five years until 1883 when
the Graduate Libra.ry was con-
structed, partially for the purpose'
of providing space for an art
gallery.
Third Floor Museum
The third floor of the building
constituted a kind of art museum,
but adequate space was sorely
lacking.
In 1898 the library was ex-
tended, doubling stack space and
the size of the gallery, but numer-
ous paintings still had to be hung
on the first and second floors.
Frieze served as curator of the
collections until his death in
1889, at which time his position
was assumed by classical scholar
Martin Luther D'Ooge.
It was about this time that
Alumni Memorial Hall was plan-'
ned in order to alleviate the
crowded galleries of the library.
The final structure emerged as a
compromise between the require-
ments of the Alumni Association
and the University's needs.
Conipleted in 1910, the art mu-
seum housed a sculpture gallery
in the basement, an archaeology
collection in a small room nearby
and its paintings on the second
floor.
When the department of fine
rts was created in 1911, office
space was given to the museum
staff on the first floor. Presently,
the Alumni Association also has
offices in the building.
Building Modernized
The museum was modernized in
1957, at which time a metal stair-
way connecting the first and
second floors and modernistic
partitions' were added. According

to museum director Charles Saw-
yer, the stairway and partitions
helped create useable exhibition
space on the first floor and united
the first and second floors.
The West gallery, formerly a
classroom, was provided with a
false ceiling and transformed into
an exhibition gallery.
In addition to its permanent
collections, the museum displays
approximately 30 temporary ex-
hibits during the course of each

Important
In Shoes
By SHARON MUSKOVITZ
Once again University coeds will
begin shuffling through last year's
supply of shoes trying to decide
which ones are worth another year
and which are to be discarded.
Fall's new shoes will cause more
confusion, with three shapes of
toes to pick from: pointed
square . . . and oval. The pointed
shoe is expected to remain number
one in fashion volume. It aims
toward elegance for wear with
dressier fashions.
Square toes and oval tes will
be of great importance in complet-
ing the tailored look in street and
daytime type clothes.
Flats Invade
The flat shoe has always been
a popular style for campus wear
and is again invading. Especially
popular are pancake flats which
are made with an extremely low
cut throatline or shell. Around the
University,: the natural heel and
unfinished sole is preferred
Flats are slimmer, trimmer, and
dressier this fall. Besides.the crush
leathers and velvety bonnieskin, a
new washable suede has been in-
troduced. This brushed suede re-
quires no cleaners and can be
washed with soap and water. Pop-
ular shades are expected to be
black, coppery browi, and mush-
room. The toes will be sharply
pointed or smartly squared.
Always popular for class wear,
the loafer is taking on new look.
Black patent leather loafers are
coming out and are expected to
become quite a fad in various
styles.
No can-pus would ?be. complete
without the gym shoe which has
recently, startedvarious style
trends of, its own. The, conven-,
tional gym shoe now has the
tapered and pointed toes as well as
the squared toe.
,Gym shoes now come in a wide
variety of colors and fabrics. The
standard sneaker will seldom be
found anymore as girls are begin-
ning to develop a gym shoe ward-
robe.
Multi-Colored Suede
A new trend is starting with
multi-colored suede shoes. The
slim two-eyed oxford and pixie
boots head this creation. Any
variety of colors can be found.
Little heels, for a look that is
somewhat removed from the ex-
tremely casual, and also to combat
short boyfriends are picking up
some new fashion twists. The
wafer thin or stacked cowboy style
is found in the jet heel which is
about one and a half inches high.
The slim and hour glass heel
which is thin in the middle awd
large at the base will be for a little
dressier wear.
Sweatsh irts
Stay Popuar
Sweatshirts, usually associated
with gymnasiums, cold weather
and other zymotic envronments;
appear to have undergone virtu-
ally no change this fall.
Just as in other Tears, the most
popular model is the one with
"Michigan" emblazoned across the
front, curving over the University's
seal.
The maize and blue variety of
this kind is by far the best seller,
one store clerk said. Most of the
purchasers of these sweatshirts
are boys, as the girls' choices are
diversified to include the dark blue
and white and light blue and whte
models.
Second place in popularity goes
to the fraternity and sorority
models with the names of various

affiliate units stenciled on them.
Outside of these two varieties,
relatively few other kinds of
sweatshirts are sold on campus.
These include 'yellow, gray and
white.
Most of the ofbeat sweatshirts
are not selling very well, the clerk'
reported. There were hopes that
a model of "sweatshirt" stamped
on the front would go over, but
they haven't as yet. Other so-far
unpopular novelty items include
Sshort sleeve sweatshirts and ones
with a zip-up top.
There are also no new materials
in sweatshirts. They continue to
be made of shrinkable cotton.,
Prices for sweatshirts run about
three dollars.

year. The monthly exhibitions in
the foyer of the Undergraduate
Library are also sponsored by the
art museum.
Sawyer sees his duties in the
capacity of museum director as
three-fold.
First, he must help the art
museum form and enlarge its col-
lections for teaching purposes to
serve the University as a whole
and, more specifically, those stu-
dents in history of art and design
courses.
Second, he believes that he and
his staff must organize a cycle
of special exhibitions throughout
the year both for general interest
and to serve instructional pur-
poses)
Third, Sawyer teaches in Amer-
ican Studies and art, as well as
giving a graduate seminar con-
cerning the museum as a career.
The course is open primarily to
history of art majors, but' other
students are also admitted.
