Union Installs Heat System

For Casual Campus Characters
By PHILIP SHERMAN
A cursory observEr might say
the Michigan Union has been tor-
pedoed, and the torpedo was a
Evidence seems to point to this:
there is a big hole in the back of
the building about ground level
and a long cylinder lying on the
However, the cursory observer
would be wrong. Frederick C.
Kuenzel, general manager of the
Union, said yesterday that the-
Union was installing a new heat-
ing-air conditioning system for
140 of its 183 guest rooms.
Cut Hole in Wall
The hole was cut to allow con-
tractors to move in air-condition-
ing machinery which will be erect-
ed in the basement.
Cost of the entire system, which
includes installation of individual-
Aly controlled -heating and cooling
units in each of the, rooms will be
$275 thousand, he added.
Intent of the project, Kuenzel
said, is -simply to provide better
service for guests; since only Un-
ion members or their own or Uni-
versity-sponsored guests can stay
at the Union, it is not a device to
attract more business.
Work started July 1 and was
to be finished by Sept. 15, but the
target date is now Oct. 22. Kuen-

The most important category of
men's wearing apparel on this
campus is and has been for some
time sports wear, and there are
some important changes in this
facet of fashion this autumn.
Most Michigan- men return to
school well supplied with sports
coats, shirts, sweaters, slacks and
outerjabkets, and less supplied
with suits, topcoats, hats, dinner
Jackets and tuxedoes. For there are
far more occasions here calling for
comfortable dress than for formal.
In sports coats this fall, fashion-
ers say, ivy stripes are dead. Small
checks and sharply-defined plaid
patterns are the trend and brown,
then gray, are the favored colors.
A shetland check is considered
ieally high fashion, and modified
Norfolks and houndstooth pat-
terned sport coats are especially
good for our BMOC.
Blazers Look Green
Blazers are retaining their popu-
larity this year with the new colors
of olive and charcoal-green even
outdoing the favored navy blue.
And sweaters, men-the more
you have, they say, the happier you
are. This fall shetland wools in
boatnecks instead of the classic
crew neck are news. Also such de-
partures from the conservative
crew as wide wool shetland stripes,
over-all plaids and shawl-collar
cardigans in bulky knits are the
Especially good for warmth are
the long - sleeved lamb's wool
sweaters with deep chevron pat-
terns in front. You -might really
appreciate that fuzzy feel when
you bicycle down for your eight
o'clock some morning next month.
Wool flannel slacks are nice to
have besides the usual stock of
khackies. The ivy - cut "perma-
"An Analysis of The Science of
Culture" will be the topic for the
Reading and Discussion Seminar
to be held today.
Prof. Leslie White of the an-
thropology department will lead
the discussion. The seminar will be
held at 4 p.m. in the Honors

nently - creased," all wool slacks
with front pockets and without
cuffs are the smartest ands most
practical this season. Slacks of
high fashion are in muted plaid
wool flannel. Recommended com-
panion is a solid-color blazer.,
The wool stadium coat as an
outerjacket gets plenty of use from
football season on. The trend this
fall, as in women's skirts and
dresses, is toward a new shorter
length. Smooth - surfaced tweedy
fabrics, many stroked with sport
fur and wool pile collars, are the
popular ingredients for this coat.
Its double-breasted version in a
nubby wool of a brown-black mix-
ture will make the wearer a true,
attention-getting fashion plate.
Unscathed Shirt Stays
The only article of sportswear
that has survived alteration in our
changingfashion world is the
shirt. It is still the basic button-
down Oxford cloth in the same
basic white and blue.
So there is at least one article
of clothing the Michigan Man did
not have to buy new this year-and
he can wear his least expensive
part of his wardrobe with his new
sports coats, flannel slacks and

"Smooth sophistication" is the
fashionable world's summation of
their collegiate designs this fall.
- Separates that blend together
to give that one-piece look are
sharing their, perennial spotlight
with sprightly jumpers, smart
simple dresses and suits that
mimic the men's.
Subdued men's wear worsted is
sneaking into the coed's wardrobe
in the form of subtly feminine
suits pleasingly spiced with details

Mixing metaphors is frowned
upon, but following the same pro-
cedure in fashion results in a
charming combination of suit and
dres. Coordinate a boxy tweed
jacket with a simple wool dress or
top a jersey shaft with a leather-
trimmed jacket for the ,sophisti-
cated look this season.
For those casual occasions, the
style setters again lend their
hearty approval to the Chanel
technique of pairing a straight or
pleated skirt and the loose little
jacket that's cut off short.
Double dividends, particularly
with this fall's high-style ver-
sions, come to the jumper owner

blouse or sweater, it's quickly re-

and skirts will still be the staples
in classroom clothes.
