Antique Gold, White, And
Pink Are Most Popular
For Formal Wear.
By LOUISE CRAiNDALL
Antique gold, which seems to be the
newest shade for winter formals, pa-
aded in full regalia Friday night at
the Mosher Jordan formal dance.
Margaret Beckett, '34, Jordan so-
cial chairman, affected this color in
a.gown of rough crepe with brown
fur trim, and brown suede pumps.
Ssie 'Feldman, '33, Jordan president,
wore a dress of an off shade of gold,
with a brown velvet trim around the
neckline, ending in a cocky bow on
lVie left shoulder. Several other
gowns in different tones of-this color
were observed in various styles, while
white, in fiat crepe, satin, and velvet
was not without its place.
Unusual Gown Joted
We noticed Martha Bowen, '34, in
white crepe, with rhinestone trim and
accessories. Barbara Vandeivoort, '34,
wore an unusual gown of dead white
rough crepe, fashioned on toga lines,
featuring the high neckline, and long,
draped skirt. The neck was caught
on the left shoulder with a corsage
of. gardenias. Katherine Leopold, '35,
was strikingly clothed in white crepe
with a high round neckline of green
stones. Her accessories were emerald
green, complementing the gown. Polly
Walker, '33, chose white satin and
sequins, with a high front neckline.
Pink lace, with complementary color
trim and accessories were other com-
Georgina Karlson, '35, chose pink
lace with silver accessories for her
outfit. The dress was cut on a stright
line, reaching th~e floor.. A "V" neck
with a strip down the back rendered
it outstanding. Virginia Hartz, '34,
wore pink lace and brown velvet. Her
pumps were brown, as was the fiat
shoulder bow, on her gown. Satin,
not to be outdone, was predominant
in pastel pink.
Noda: McCamly, 34, attired in
this material, accentuated the stun-
ning simplicity of her gown with
rhinestone straps and buckle, on the
high waistline belt. Helen Bailey, '33,
was another of those wearing pink
satin. Kathleen Lockhart, '33, social
chairman of Mosher Hall, fulfilled
her capacity gracefully in pale pink
with a large fiat bow at the extremity
of the "V" back. Georgiana Mott,
'33, Mosher president wore pale peach
with a gaily flowered jacket.
Probably no formal dance would
be complete without the sophistica-
tion of jet black, plain or relieved
with another color, seen here and
there among the dancers on the floor.
Mary Ellen Webster, '34, wore a
lain frock of black crepe, and car-
ried out her jewelry in crystal. Bar-
bara Rose, '34, preferred velvet, with
narrow shoulder straps, an simply
cut. Marian Brooke, '35, chose satin,
aeientuated with emerald green, in
atriangular scarf which fell over one
shoulder. The belt and slippers were
also green. The gown of Elizabeth
Spray, '35, was of velvet, featuring
long, full sleeves. The neck was ex-
tremely high in front, contrasting
with the low cut back
Shoulder to Wrist Sleeves
Careen Eshleman, '34, was attired
in crepe, also featuring the long
sleeve falling from shoulder to wrist.
Over the shoulder narro* straps of
the same material, and the gown was
relieved with sequins, Miss Dorothy
Birdzell, assistant director of Jordan
Hall, chose her black frock in lace.
Again long sleeves were featured.
Catherine Thompson, '34, wore a gay
frock of Capuscine with a shoulder
corsage of gardenias in contrast.
Helen Rosenberg, '35, was gowned
in plum colored satin, featuring the
suspender back, caught at the bottom
with a spray of purple flowers. Jose-
phine Talbot, '34, wore the same
shade, her dress being of velvet. The
neck was high in front, descending
to a low "V" in back. Miss Kather-
ine K o c h, assistant director of
Mosher Hall chose a crepe of hya-
cinth blue, treated with sequins about
the neck. Nedra Alexander, '36, in-
augurated an early spring trend in a
frock of flowered silk with small puf-

By ELEANOR B. BLUM
John C. Mathes, contract bridge
instructor at the League, returned to
Ann Arbor Monday after having at-
tended the National Bridge Teach-
er's Convention in New York, con-
ducted by Ely Culbertson.
Evenings at the convention were
devoted to duplicate bridge and Mr.
Mathes brought back two top-score
cups. Playing with Charles Coleman,
'34A, he scored two firsts, a second
and a third in four evenings of play,
making the highest competitive aver-
age of the convention. He also re-

Playing at the Knickerbocker Club,
Mr. Mathes and Mr. Coleman won

American Bridge Olympic; Mrs. Lelia
Hattersley, bridge lecturer and au-
thor of several books and articles on
bridge; Commander Winfield Liggett,

Culbertson match; and George Ruth.

The new Culbertson Blue Book is
not yet ready for distribution, and

in the Ethel Fountain Iussey room
of the League at 2:30 p. m., Jan. 11.
The first lecture will cover the new
four-five no trump convention for
slam bids, the new convention to;
show established suits, the one-over-
one, the two-over-one, and the new
forcing bids. The second lecture will
cover changes in the present system,
including the new no trump valua-
tion, the new semi-pre-emptive bids,;
the new interpretation of defensive
bids, and various other details.
For the convenience of those who
will be unable to attend in the after-
noon, these same lectures will be
given at 7:30 p.im. Jan 10 and 11.
The lectures are open to students,
faculty, and townspeople.

Financial conditions among wom-

Long flowing lines in all types of
materials from wool to chiffon pre-
dominated at 'the League Friday
night, while black took the honors
as the most popular color.
There were black laces, black chif-
fons, satins, velvets, and crepes until
we welcomed with something akin to
relief anything bright. Such an indi-
vidual frock of rust sheer wool, long,
with a full-sleeved jacket. The sleeves
were banded by a strip of fur above
the elbow and were snug to the wrist.
Almost immediately after that we
saw a clever green crepe dress that
had the yoke and decollete filled in
with net, trimmed with wide borders
'of silver bugle beads.
A bright red frock with a low V-
back, effective with a black velvet
sash, and a pretty gold colored frock
with butterfly sleeves made two vivid
splashes of color among the dancers.
Yet it would be incomplete not to add
a few of the smart black frocks that
were observed. For instance, a finely
designed black lace with a short-
sleeved jacket and wide coral girdle;
a corded black crepe snugly fitted
with white lapin sleeves; a black
velvet, queen-like, with long slit
sleeves and slit decollete; another
crepe with a wide belt of brilliants
and a short circular cape; and a chif-
fon with a velvet belt.
