terclass team played the Ann Ar-
bor Hockey Club yesterday in open
challenge matches at Palmer Field.
First G~Ame.
In the first game, the freshmen
defeated the Ann Arbor High
School team 2 to 0. Janet Miner
and Ann Russe made the two goal
points for the freshmen team. It
was a fast game with good playing
on the part of beth teams, but
there were no outstanding players.
The freshmen team is composed
of Ann Russe, Jane Hopkins, Lois
Jerkin, KatherinebAnning, Janet
Miner, Hilda Kurby, Lucy Little,
Maxine :Maynard, Sally Pierce, La-
vina Creighton, Martha Newhardt,
Ruth Root, Jane Bassett,LFrancis

In the second game tie juniors
and the Ann Arbor Hockey Club
tied 1 to 1. Dr. Mabel Rugen, and
Miss Marie Hartwig starred for the
hockey club. Their defense was ex-
ceedingly good. Although the field
was very wet and slippery, the
game was fast. The junior forward

Variety of Pelts Used to lake
New Type of Short
By B. A. C. '34.
Short fur jackets, which were
originally intended for sports wear,
have today become very usual and
essential accompaniments to for-
mal and informal attire.
The most useful purpose that the
short jacket serves is for street or
sports wear. There are a variety of
furs used. The striped furs are
especially popular. The jacket often
has a wide peplum, a wide collar,
and large baggy sleeves, which
effectively carry out the tweed
A very attractive ensemble was
that of a brown muskrat jacket
used with a full, slightly flared skirt
of rust, a rust tam, with its tiny
brown feather, and a rust and
brown combination scarf.
One of the newest jackets is that
of shaved lamb fur trimmed, with
chestnut astrakan. Cloth jackets
are also popular, especially when
used with a wide fur scarf, which
is almost as large as the jacket it-
self. A leopard scarf adds a charm-
ing complement to a plain wool
costume and the hat worn with the
ensemble may be banded with leo-
In spite of all that has been said
about the new wide shoulders Paris
has just recently been showing
some tight, "squeezed-in" shoulder
effects. This, however, isn't affect-
ing the new slim waistline. If any-


thing, waists are becoming even
more slim. And the waistline is
never ignored; it is always definite-
ly indicated.
Day-skirts are almost straight in
line though they may be slightly
flared. However, the emphasis of,
the dress is particularly placed on
the sleeves.
There is at present a great con-
troversy in Paris over the wide-
narrow shoulder problem. The new
sleeves quite obviously have a
widening effect, especially, the leg,
o' mutton, and puff effects. The
puff may be at the, elbow, or be-
tween the elbow and wrist. If the
puff is at the elbow, the rest of the
sleeve will be skin-tight.
Many attractive new tweeds are
t used in jacket-skirt combinations.
By possessing several skirts, one
may have an entirely new outfit.
Then there are so many clever
little blouses, which either lend an
interesting note of colorcontrast
or complete a general color 'scheme.
The short-sleeved, loosely knitted
wool sweaters which are scarcely
heavier than a silk blouse, are still
much in evidence.
Prof. Brumm to Talk

Retiring From Opera
Geraldine Farrar, famous opera
star, makes her farewell address in
a recent article in the Saturday
Evening Post. This season of 1931-
1932 is her last on the operatic and
concert stage.
A great many friends are sym-
pathizing with her on the heart-
break of retirement. Miss Farrar
says this concern is very sweet of
them but hardly called for as her
retirement is not a tragedy but a
privilege.) It is not an end but a
long-deferred beginning, a setting
aside of certain exhausted inter-
ests in order to take on others. It
means that she may stay in one
place as long as she likes and en-
joy something like privacy.
It was because she was so com-
pletely happy in her late career
that she has so few regrets now. To
express her own words, 'My urge
towards the colorful, the vital, the
dramatic, was inseparable for me
from the art of singing. I express-
ed4mpulsively rather-- than withr
caution, and, quite naturally, the
price of such glorious excesses was
often strain and fatigue."
Henceforth she shall have to ac-
cept art and beauty in a more im-
personal. When she is no longer
able to create beauty she shall hope
for the grace to sit at the feet of
those who can,, and appreciate it
with equal virtuosity.

Attorney-General, Paul M. Voor-

luncheon which took place at 12:30
o'clock at the League ball room. Mr.
Voorhies discussed crime as related
to the individual and as related to
the state.
Miss Thelma Lewis, soprano, ac-
companied by Miss Laura Whelan,
presented a group of French songs.
Mrs. C. R. Wilson, past president,

Woman." Miss Marion McClench
