What is so rare as a pair of cords
in Ann Arbor? They just don't exist.
Of course, if you look long enough,
I you might find a pair hanging around
the Intramural Building, but for gen-
eral campus wear they are extremely

is negligible, and the upkeep practi-
cally nothing. You just don't get 'em
cleaned. Not if you're a real he-man.

SThe probable answer is that Michi-
gan men are too particular in their
saitorial tastes to stoop to such
depths. Cords. Ugh! Not for me.
That for the pseudo-sophisticate.
But we have a secret suspicion that
down deep in the heart of the aver-
age student is a subconscious yearn-

Prof. Arthur P. Scott, of the Uni-

Therefore he asked all his students
to bring their textbooks and notes to
the June examinations.

A noble ambition, but one which
received the derision of those men
from the wild and woolly west. Say
they - phooey on setting the style.
Phooey on all that's "right." Just
give us our cords.
And aren't they right in a way?
Slaves to fashion, uncomfortable as
it sometimes is - that's what we are.
The westerners would rather be slaves

Strong Point In
What To Wear
Majority Of Predictions On
Spring S ty l e s Concern
Jackets And Slacks
To say much about sport clothes
for this spring is to generally speak
of everything that men will wear, for
it will again be a sporting season with
odd jackets and slacks and sweaters
making up the majority of all men's
Essentially, it is the time of year
when men look in their closet and
pull out the first jacket that is there
to drape on with their slacks. No fuss
is necessary and no debate as to
whether it will fit the occasion, for
if you own clothes of this nature they
are good for all occasions.-
Actually, there is very little change
this year from the styles that first
took this part of the country by

Corduroy trousers, sport shoes, shirt

- that's the average classroom wear
of the western student, but we're
not so sure it is exemplary.
Anyone who dresses up in an actual
suit there is a sissy. He's socially
ostracized. He just doesn't know hisI
way around. Their standards of dress
are entirely different from ours.

West they compete to see who can
wear his cords the longest without
getting them cleaned or pressed. Ru-
mor has it that the marathon has
sometimes extended into years.
Their one ambition is to get their
cords so dirty that they will stand by
themselve's. Then they can leave
them standing by their bed at night
and just jump into them in the
Rips and tears are swell - they fa-
cilitate ventilation. It's a fact that
some ardent individuals wear their
cords so long that they ultimately
have to wash them off with a brush
and water. Either that or wear a new
pair over what's left of the old ones.
SHORTS FOR MEN
Men, long slaves to the tradition of
long pants in tennis, are taking up
shorts along with the women. One
number which is receiving popularity
is cream-colored corduroy shorts,
worn with a dark brown jacket of

Harris Tweed A Standby
One of these is a jacket of Harris
tweed and is always found in the1
wardrobe of the sportsman because of<
the multiple uses he finds for it. With'
the increased popularity of rougher
cloths during the past season, college!
men have been taking to them with
thanks, and there seems to be a de-
sire among most men to have a
tweed in their list. They wear indefi -
nitely and most people say that they
actually look better the older they
get. Dark sleeveless sweaters or a Tat-
tersall weskit add to the effect.
Slacks this year are even morej
prominent than they have been dur-
ing past seasons, the most outstand-
i ing being dark grey. Others that are
finding great favor, and that have,
incidentally, replaced the Glen plaids
of last season, are the houndstooth;
and shepherd checks. Generally,
slacks promise to be more colorful
than ever this year.

Good And Heavy Crepe
Soles Are Popular
One of the most popular models of
shoes that has been seen so far this
year is the brown buck with leather
soles and heels. It is the same shoe
that was so widely worn last year.
Of course, as far as Ann Arbor is
concerned, we have all seen demon-
strated that white shoes are still the
most popular type and will continue
to be -in fact they are so well-liked
by a number of men here that they
are worn all winter, and the dirtier
they get the better they are supposed
In spite of all this, however, they
will again be the most relable shoe
for all occasions this spring and sum-
mer. Their greatest advantage lies
in the fact that they can be worn
with any color clothes. Brown bucks,
which seem to be most in demand in
plain toes, are without a par when
worn with dark grey slacks and aj

style centers. They are available in
both brown and white buck and add
another note of hugeness to the gen-I
eral theme that men are following.
