Michigan is noted in the field of
music for the excellence of its cur-
ricula and the calibre of the musi-
cians it turns out. Part of the train-
ing facilities are offered in the vari-
ous musical sororities and fraterni-
ties, together with a social life that
is interlinked with musical interests.
Half a hundred women are benefiting
by the advantages so offered through

Union Dances
Refl.et Trend
To Sim1Iieity
The perpetual importance of black-
and-white proved itself again in the
overwhelming evidence of its popu-
larity seen at the Union last night.
Black satins, chiffons, and all varie-
ties of crepes were set off by a pro-;
fusion of white organdies, mousseline1
de soie, laces and all types of white
lingerie touches.
One of the nicest things we've seen
for spring was a lovely flowing long
affair of black chiffon with a stif-
fened organdy top of white. The low
V decollette met the waist with a
jeweled clip in back.
An altogether different type frock
in black and white satin would be
appropriate for formal afternoonj
wear. The white top was cut surplice
fashion and studded with gold se-
quins, while the skirt was built on
the fashionable straight lines for
An effective interpretation of the
so-called speakeasy dress was done in
pure white crepe touching the floor;
extremely simple lines were followed
with a high boat neck-line and full
sleeves to the waist.
There's one thing about the Union;
every type of dress from daytime
frocks to the point where only a
jacket separates an outfit from be-
ing formal is acceptable. For in-
stance, one skirt and blouse ensemble,
the latter of organdy, with large ruf-
fled sleeves was as smart and appro-
priate as the more formal types.
