RIVAL "DUTiCH CLEANSERS"
Costumes for the annual Unionj
opera, "Cotton Stockings" that will
open Dec. 3 at the Whitney theater
are by far the most gorgeous and elab-I
orate that have ever been used in aI
Union opera, according to E. Morti-
mer Shuter who is directing the pro-
duction. There are one half again as
many gowns in this year's show as in
last year's.
The gowns this year are designedj
by Lester of Chicago, who has cf'eat-j
ed costumes for Michigan operas for
several years. "Lester has outdone
himself in producing this year's cos-
tumes," Mr. Shuter said. "It was a
unanimous opinion last year; that the
gowns used were the finest ever seen
in a Mimes production, but those in
'Cotton Stockings' will surpass .them
by far."
Large Number of Costumes
The number of gowns in this year's
show is larger than any before used.
Lionel E. Ames, '24, who plays the
leading -female role, has eight co-
plete changes of costumes, including
shoes and gowns. The show girls
1' orus has four complete changes.
'"is elhorus is composed of. 12 mem-
bers, al n all changes the gown
work is different.
The chorus of twelve 'girls' has sev-
en complete costume changes. The
men's chorus, another of twelve men,
has only two costume changes, the
first costume being worn through the
first act and the second in the final
act.

For Holiday Parties
Glittering gowns, bright colors, gay trimmings,
combines to make frocks for holiday festivities
brighter and gayer. All the accessories, combs,
beads, earrings, filmy hose, bracelets, and rich,, fur-
trimmed wraps.

The placing of the scenes in an art-
ist's studio in the opera gives chances
for .exceptionally fine costume work.
That both acts of the show are in stu-
dios of artists, and the models usec'
and the costumes that can be used to
clothe them lend the show an air of
richness and splendor never before
seen on a Mimes stage.
Has Period Gowns
Probably the most extravagant and
gorgeous number in the show will be
the "Lady of the Tapestry" 'song.
Members of the show girls' chorus
parade the stage in this number,
clothed in period gowns. Each girl
represents a different period in the
history of the art of fine dressing for
women.
Another number of exceptiopal br l-
liance. will be the "Spanish Dance"
The rich gowns that Spanish costum-
ing allows will be a romantic fea-
ture of the opera, Mr. Shuter believes.
A novelty number that will probably
be one of the hits of the show will be
the "Clown Dance". The dance is a
pew idea of Roy Hoyer who is direct-
ing the dancing for the opera, and is
something never before used in the
musical comedy stage. Mr. Shuter be-,
lieves that it will be as much of a sue
cess as the "Dutch Cleanser" number
was last year.

Plain and Fur Trimmed

Frank & Seder of Detroit wishes to convince the women of Ann Arbor that we desire their patron-
age.
We wish to show that we have the kind of merchandise you will enjoy having, and that we can
bring it to you at a genuine saving. Orders will be taken for these coats, for delivery, November 28.
Coats on Display from io A.M. Until P.M. An Experienced Fitter NWill Be in Attendance.
Also Several Experienced Salespeople, Who Will Be Pleased to Show the Garments to You.
We purchased these coats under an agreement with the maker that we would n'ot use their name
in advertisements. Under no other circumstances would they give them to us at the price we were
willing to pay. It is for this reason that we are able to bring them to you at prices which, under any
other circumstances, would be impossible for coats of the same desirable quality and distinctiveness.
