Plan Exhibits
Of Needlework

Will Display Rare Quilts,
Wooden Doll Collection,
And Handwork Novelties
Old and new handmade quilts will
be on display at the quilt tea to be
given Wednesday, in the Women's
Athletic Building. The exhibit is
being shown as a result of the wide
interest among women in the finer
needlework of the earlier days. The
event is sponsored by the Ann Ar-

Fellowship Fund.

man and will be assisted by Mrs.

Mrs. Burton Knapp, Monroe, will
place on display her unique collec-
tion of quilts which, when displayed
in Cleveland, drew over a thousand
visitors. The collection includes many
fine examples of needlework, old and
modern, in designs of both familiar
and intricate styles.
To reproduce more fully the spirit
of pioneer days, Mrs. Marie Meissner
will operate the spinning wheel which
she used in her home in the early
pioneer days of Michigan.
Any power whatsoever is destined
to go on the rocks when it encounters
fashion. If fashion decrees short
skirts, you will not succeed in length-
ening them, not even with the guillo-
tine. -Premier Mussolini.
With fewer students away for out-
of-town games, campus social life
brightened, and at the Union Friday
there was an imposing array of cam-
pus personages.
Gay Mayer, Mary Edna Travis, and
Ann Timmons wore gowns of black
and white, each distinctive in mode.
Miss Travis' gown was of black crepe
with an edging of white chiffon
forming the high neckline in front,
and the lowback. A shawl effect was
created by the white satin top of
Miss Timmons' dress, and black vel-
vet with a smart white collar was
Miss Mayer's choice.
While passing through the lounge
between dances we noticed Barbara
Casper,,a few chairs away Charlotte
Whitman and M. K. Snyder. Lois
King's long crimson velvet attracted
our attention and near her Sue Cal-
cutt, of the J.G.P. committee, also
in red. Mary Savage, Virginia Coe,
and Francine Wright were there.
Jo Hadley and Jean Kepple at-
tended with young journalists and
Jane Brucker with one of the mem-
bers of the J-Hop committee. Nedra
Alexander wore a charming blue

shoulders, while Harriet Church's in-
formal black dress had a striking
white tailored cravat.

MISS KIRBY, '35, is very proninct i n women's activities on the campus. Last year
she was Chairman of the Sophomore Cabaret and in recognition of her splendid work
she was appointed Chairman of the Finance Committee of this year's Junior Girls'
Play. She is also Treasurer of the League and active in Wyvern, Junior Women's
Honorary Society. Realizing the importance of neat appearance Miss Kirby patronizes
Greene's where her clothes are given the utmost attention.

The sun shines outside while you sit in that sleepy 8 o'clock. But you
don't feel sleepy. Your dress, back from GREENE'S, is immaculate and
like new. There's something about that feeling of a clean, pressed
dress that tak.es you right out of the hazy atmosphere qf a Shakespeare
class. If only the rest of those people would wear Microcleaned clothes
the sun would be IN the room and Shakespeare 'would be pushed back
into his sixteenth century.
