rtwaist Solves Numerous Dress Problems

can, in no way, be termed "one
of those preposterous styles which
makes q girl look like a sack."
Typically American
The casual style is typically
American and did not just come
off the designers board in Paris.
The shirt-dress is traditional
among college and white collar
girls for its usefulness, variety and
wearability.
Care for such dresses is easy.
Most are now "wash 'n wear" and
can be easily stored and hung
without thought of wrinkling. (At
least this is what the manufac-
turers claim.)

One of the best uses for the
shirtwaist is "weekends away."
Whether a girl is going home or
to another campus, it will suffice
in almost any situation and usually
can be crammed into a crowded
suitcase easily.
A common use for the dress at
the University is the "dinner
dress" which travels to breakfast,
lunch, dinner, lounge or wherever
a dress is required by University
rules.
These cool dresses are quite use-
ful to just "pull on" when late for
class and help the wearer fight
the humidity of Ann Arbor.

CLAMDIGGERS, SLACKS COMPETE:
Bermuda Retain Title in New Summerwear

By GAIL EVANS
Bermudas are going better than
ever this year.
Contrary to rumors, the kulot
will not replace Bermuda shorts-
at least not yet. Competition may
come from clamdiggers or the new
summer slacks, however. .
The cool spring weather calls
for transition colors and materials
like Batik and . Madras. Olives,
khakis, and charcoal in. poplin
and cotton cord are again best-'
sellers among college students.
This year's innovations in Ber-
mudas are textured materials:
burlap and Italian cotton. If coeds
can endure the rough weave, there
are burlap shorts featuring flowery
embroidery.
Another competitor with Ber-
mudas are Jamaican shorts.
Matched with knit T-shirts,
Jamaicans in hot pink,, orange,
lime, and lemon fonow the trend
toward bright colors.
One problem store owners find
affecting Jamaican sales is 'that,
they are not allowed on golf
courses. Also, Michigan students
seem to prefer the added length
which Bermudas offer.
Bermuda styles for men have
remained consistent with those
of past years. Batik and Madras
with a predominating blue back-
ground appeal to the majority of
Michigan men.
Why do students wear Bermu-
das? One woman replied, "Egad,
for comfort, of course." Men seem
to wear them to display the beauty'
of their knees.
And so, despite knobby knees
and other anatomical disadvan-
tages, the campus this spring will
again swarm with Bermuda-clad
students. In the libraries, in
classes and around town, these
bright new styles will be admired
by all.
Fashion Note
LAKELAND, Fla., '(P)-Note to
fashion designers:
A woman in Lakeland lost her
purse and placed this advertise-
ment in the Lost and Found col-
umn:
"Lost, dark gray pocketbook.
Looks like ,a small suitcase."

as we've seen . , . this trimly ;
tailored shirtwaist from our 4
newest collection of haberdash-
ery by John Ross.
All the more perfect because it's done in snap-wash, scarcely-iron
dacron and pima cotton broadcloth at its. smoothest. Check that
neat convertible collar, the fly front bodice closing, the cluster
pleated skirt. And for extra comfort in the long stretch--an
action pleat back.

-Fred Shippey
LAZY LOOK-Of shiny white pegged pants matched with a gaily gaudy hobo shirt in varying shades
of orange calico. To make the outfit complete, a pair of kick-offable flats and a floppy straw hat.
Hats and shoes are making a comeback this year and seem as popular and varied as ever. Big straws
such as the one pictured are featuring gaily decorated bands and streamers, and canvas flats in all
the rainbow hues and low prices can match any outfit. Especially popular, now that Mrs. John F.
Kennedy has shown a preference for them, are open straw sandals.
