THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Spring Styles For Men Fe(
Unique Patterns, More
Opes Before A
Campus Celebrities And
Faculty Members Attend
A gala company of Ann Arbor ce-
lebrities and near celebrities watched
the trials and tribulations of Hedda
Gabler at the preview of Play Pro-
duction's presentation of Ibsen's play
last night at the Mimes Theatre.
Dean Alice Lloyd, Jeannette Perry,
assistant dean of women, and Dr.
H. E. Schultz were present, and the
0. J. Campbells, en famille, with
daughter Emily wearing a smart
combination of brown and grey. The
League trio represented by Ethel Mc-
Cormick, Alta Atkinson and Emily
White were present and Dean W. R.
Humphrey and Mrs. Humphrey,
seated close by, seemed to be enjoy-
ing themselves greatly.
During intermissions we caught
glimpses of Dr. R. J. Saunders of the
philosophy department and Prof.
G. E. Densmore of the speech de-
partment enjoying a between act
cigarette. Prof. C. L. Meader of the
general linguistic department, and
Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Lincoln of the
Spanish department, R. J. Nelson of
the English department, Prof. T. S.
Vander Vort of the German depart-
ment, Eric Walters of the English de-
partment, Mrs. Walters, and Mr.
Charles R. Knudson of the French
department were other faculty mem-
Those prominent in campus circles
who attended were Francis Manches-
ter, chairman of this year's J. G. P.,
wearing a long flowing powder blue
crepe; Ann Verner of Comedy Club
in an exotic gown of figured crepe
with an odd decollete in back that
formed a very short jacket covering
the shoulders but leaving the waist
bare, and Myrtle Cooper in a well-
fitting frock of black satin.
Billie Johnson of Comedy Club and
Harry Allen, '33A, prominent in dra-
matic circles, were both there. Others
we noticed from Comedy Club were
Isabel Bonicave, '34, in a quaint for-
mal of old rose taffeta featuring a'
tiny ruffled cape; Robert Hogg, '34;
Dorothy Dishman, 535, in powder
blue crepe with a tiny turbin of the
same material, and Ann Evans, '34,
in a flowing crepe formal.
Blue seemed a favorite color last
night. One notable frock in pale blue
satin was banded at the hips and at
the shoulders with brown sable, while
a royal blue crepe formal was set off
to good advantage by gold sequins
encircling the shoulders. A Sunday
night frock in powder blue crepe had
a top of velvet fastening down the
front with rhinestone buttons.
A clever treatment of the popular
mousseline de soie was noticed on
a pale pink frock of flat crepe. The
organdy-like material was gathered
in large ruffles overthe shoulders.
An inverted V-shaped decolletage
on a white crepe frock trimmed with
rhinestone and a hunters green
model with thin straps of brown satin
and an oblong decollete were two ef-
fective gowns. -The ostrich feather
motif was well carried out on a lip-
stick red gown with the fluffy feath-
ers bordering the neckline and back.

Women Uphold Negative
View On Federal Radio
The negative team of Michigan's
women's debate squad won the de-
bate held with Ohio State Tuesday
night in the University Hall audi-
torium at Columbus.
Michigan's team consisting of
Gladys Baker, '33, Ethel Howard,
'35, and Alice Gilbert, '33 debated
the negative side of the question,
"Resolved, That the Federal Radio
Commission Should be empowered
to organize all rac(Io broadcasting.
stations into a single, monopolistic
concern under federal control."
The decision was given by Howard
Higgins of Miami University, who
acted as critic judge.
This debate with Ohio State is the
last major debate of the season for
the women's team.
The season concluded Tuesday
night was to have included a debate
with the University of Indiana, how-
ever that University was forced to
forefit its decision to Michigan be-
cause of lack of funds to sponsor a
trip to Ann Arbor.
However, a debate with Northwest-
ern was arranged for the affirma-
tive team, and they met the North-
western negative team at Elkhart,

Unfinished worsteds see mto occupy

ways, for they come in soft shades
that are necessary to properly bring
out the prevailing patterns. Also
they lack the stiffness that has been
characteristic of men's suits in the
past. This is made possible by more
careful tailoring which gives a fin-

high school audience.
During the season, several minor
debates were held with Albion Col-

The two plays to be presented are:
"Siz Who Pass While the Lentils
Boiled,", and "Sir David Wears ,a
Crown." Each is a one-act play, but
the two fit together as a complete
production. The costumes are to be
modern throughout. The plays are
very fantastic and can be enjoyed by
anyone, although the plots appeal
primarily to children. The settings
are effective but simple.
