Dresses to be Representative
of Campus Clothes Worn
on School Days.
Peck and Peck Display Modeh
in First All-Sports
Style Show.
In the attempt to cultivate good
taste and appropriate clothes for
campus wear, W. A. A. is exhibit-
ing this afternoon a collection of
dresses which have been chosen
as representative of sports wear
for the college women during the
school day. The -models displayed
are from the Detroit store of Peck
and Peck. Refreshments and a
showing of the costumes by campus
models compose the afternoon's
entertainment, which is scheduled
to start at 4 o'clock today in the
ballroom of the League building.
The girls showing the sports cos-
tumes 'are Mary Shields, '32,
Mary Harrigan, 3O, Kathleen Suggs,
'30, Vincelle Bartlett, '33, Donna
Jones, '32, Harriet Trowbridge, '30,
and Herma Grabowsky, '30. The
models were chosen by Thomas
Roussel, manager of the Detroit
store of Peck and Peck, for their
ability to wear standard sports
The style ,sliow is one of many
that have been undertaken by W.
A. A: to stint4ate women's interest
in style, but this is the first year
that all the models are to be strict-
ly, of the sports order. The style
show is one of a series of events
that, have been given in connec-
tin..with the sports clothes cam-
paign of the last few weeks. The
campaign is a general result of the
dissatisfaction that has been pre-
valent because of the formality
and inappropriateness of the cos-
tumves worn by Michigan women
on the campus.
"Tfe princile benefit in taking
drama courses is to learn what tra-
ditions to depart from," stated Elis-
abeth- Smith, Spec., who recently
won the long play contest with her
contribution "Jonica Starrs." The I
aim should riecessarily be high. A
study of Ibsen, Shaw, and Shake-
speare may produce a play like the
"Show-off," whereas the study of
popular contemporary drama such,
as the "Show-off" will produce*
mere vaudeville skits."
"A play is never an individual
effort," Mrs. Smith continued. "It
is not a play until it is produced.
In my own case, the criticisms and
suggestions of other -students en'
gaged in play-writing have been
invaluable in the re-writing of my
own plays. Professor Rowe, of the
rhetoric department, has been most
patient and helpful in the revision
and rewriting of my work."
Elisabeth Smith entered Michi-
gan as a freshman eight years ago,
but left to be married. Last year
she re-entered as a special student.
"I manage to have about three
hours a day .to write, and I make
every minute count," remarked
Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith is the
other of two children.
"Everything I write is based upon
something that has happened to
someone I know or to myself. I
can't write from imagination," she

continued. "In my last play every
character can be traced back to
someone I know. The events are
not necessarily authentic. I take
the characterizations of individuals
and build up events to fit those'
Mrs. Smith is very much inter-
ested in the use of color on the,
stage. "Colors should be used to
indicate character, and can also be
used instead of scenery," she said.
"Extreme care should always be
taken in the costuming of charac-
ters. In the recent campus produc.-
tion of 'Romeo and Juliet,' Romeo
did not stan'd out at all-he was
just 'one of the boys.'
According to my theory, Romeo
should be dressed entirely in black
and Juliet in white. Juliet should
,have a black sash and slippers and





- 5UT HOW A BOUT TH5 ,ted
Past Century Inlander Reflected Student
1 "Dnion on Matters of Current Interest

The Inlander of the last cen-
tury was not devoted to student
literary aspirants, as is the present
publication. It was rather an or-
gan to reflect student opinion on
matters of current interest on the
campus; it did not exploit and en-
courage student writing merely for
the sake of the writing itself.
As an example of this, the In-
lander published in April, 1896, was
devoted exclusively to women, who
were engaged in a campaign for
athletic education for women, and
for a women's building. The his-
tory of the movement for a wom-
en's building, the Women's League,
and aspects of the early days of
co-education were featured in this
number. The only section which
exhibited any similarity to the
present magazine was the book re-
view department.
In accordance with the Women's
theme usedthroughout the maga-
zine, the frontispiece is a drawing
entitled "The College Girl," with
the only poetry included in the is-
sue printed under this caption.
The lines,
"Sweet maid dost see what life may
In thoseedim days that wait for
or thee?
Grow strong as wise, 'till love arise
To meet the longing in thine eyes!"
conote an entirely different type of
college girl from the emancipated
and carefree.one of today.
Among the several articles about!
Romeo's doublet should be slashed+
to show white, to indicate their in-
completeness without each other.'
The backdrop in the death scene
should be of black velvet. In this
scene, Juliet would be completely in
white and Romeo in Black. As Ro-
meo dies, he would take up some1
white roses from Juliet, but would
drop them as he falls with his face!
to the backdrop. When Juliet dies,
she would fall between the curtain
and Romeo, once more giving Ro-!
meo outline by her white costume, i
accenting him in death as her love
made him definite in life."

the women's building is one which'
prints and explains the plans ofj
the building, now known as Bar-
bour gymnasium. This was the
first building on campus erected
solely for women.
Alice Boise Wood, first woman to
attend the University, writes an
entertaining account of her first
year here. She was the daughter of
James Robinson Boise, professor of
Greek, and began, attending her
father's classes, though there were
then no women connected with the
university in any capacity.
Despite the hostility she encoun-
tered on every side from both fac-
ulty and students, she remained in
school until she received her de-
gree. It was not until several years
after her graduation that women
were officially admitted to the Uni-
A symposium of 26 contemporary
authors on "Athletic Education for
Women" was the real feature of
this issue. Both men and women,
responded to a questionnaire sentl
out by the Inlander on the advis-
ability of opening the field of ath-
letics to University women. Among
those who answered were William
Dean Howells, Ella Wheel Wilcox,.
George W. Cable, Elizabeth Stuart
Ward, and Charles Dudley Warner.
The consensus of opinion favored
athletics for women.
The "Among the Books" section
reviewed several contemporary
publications, indicating the type of
literature indulged in by the nine-
teenth century college women. The
titles include "Studies in Educa-
tion," Macaulay's "Essay : on Mil-
ton," "Problems in Differential
Calculus," and "Plane and Solid
A novel by Elizabeth Stuart
Ward, "A Singular Life," is hailed
as "one of the books of the year
which will go down to coming gen-
erations as having an enduring
value. It is a book which fascin-
ates, interests, and elevates the
