Shade For Clothes
For Spring Season
Has anyone been under the mis-
taken impression that brown is dis-
appe4ring from the scene these days?
If anyone does feel that way, may we
announce that they are very, very
much mistaken. Brown is with us to
stay, for by past performances it has
proved its suitability for summer wear
as well as for more wintry clothes.
Brown combined with white seems
for some reason or other to be quite
as cool a combination as can be found
in any of the pastel shades. We are
all familiar with the brown and white
shoe, primarily for sports wear which
has maintained its popularity, but
now we have brown coming to the
fore in many other kinds of accessor-
ies as well as in frocks.
Linen Blouses Shown
The brown linen blouse which has
been worn with the spring suit may
be combined for summer wear with
the white linen outfit. The solid color
blouse is perhaps the smartest, but
there are prints in linen and in or-
gandy which are very good.
Street costumes combining brown
and white are especially popular and
the somewhat dressy suit for after-
noon as well as the street has taken
brown for its very own shade.
Such costumes may be seen in
printed chiffon, either a white figure
in a brown background or a pale
yellow or green note. Taffeta too
is used for these suits and one es-
pecially attractive outfit combined an
all brown crepe dress with a brown
and white taffeta coat.
Brown For Evening!
Even evening gowns are going all
brown; brown net and mousseline de
soie are appearing in great quantities
made up in all sorts o fluttery femi-
nine styles. A sort of reddish brown
shade seems to be the most popular
for evening and proves very becom-
ing to spr-ing[,tn.
A charming tennis dress recently
seen on the courts at Palmer Field
was of a brown and white gingham
check, made with a low back and with
larg'e wite buttons fastening it on
the thoulder,. Speaking of sports
we hear thai the all brown bathing
suit will be a featu-e of the beaches,

"The creation of the Freshman
Project Committee with the objec-
tives set up for it, I consider to be
the most important contribution to
the development of educational fa-
cilities for the Michigan women that
has been made in many years." This
was the written statement made by
President Alexander G. Ruthven in
reference to the plan recently formed
by the League Council to extend the
opportunities of freshman orientation
throughout the first semester. .
The plan which has been outlined
will place a group of five members of
the faculty at- the head of the com-!
mittee which will advise the presi-
dent of the League and the 20 stu-
dents in charge of the 20 freshman
groups. Regular weekly meetings
with the groups, extending through-
out the first semester, will be held to
acquaint the students with the op-
portunities of the University, to help
them with problems of curricula, and
to help determine the student atti-
tude which will be maintained dur-
ing the four years here.
Dean Alice Lloyd, upon being asked
about the plan, said that it met with
her "heartiest approval." Professor
Henry C. Anderson expressed his sat-
isfaction with the plan, when he said,
"f regard the new freshman project
as one of the real forward steps in
the education of the students. It has
my absolute sanction."I
Supplementing the direction and
assistance of the student advisers,
members of the faculty will assist by
giving regular weekly talks on es-
sential features of the university.

discuss will be the arts and social sci-

Like Gad-About, you probably
want something for your mother
that is personal and yet different.
The selection in that case should
include the Elizabeth Arden Bath
Mitts from The Quarry Iqc. A box,
costing what you will prefer to pay,
contains enough of these luxurious
sponge mitts, saturated with al-
mond soap to last a half year, and
one needs no soap, salts or soft-
ener when they are used. Isn't
it time these mothers had a rest
frcom th non-committals of hum-
drum life? After all, rompers days
are over for us, and it's time we
started providing those little items
that make living so much more en-
joyable and even a little gay and

This business of
"Saying It With Flow-

believe it particularly
when the flowers have the appeal
of those at Schegel's Florists. They
offer telegraph service and mailing
service if your order is in soon
enough. And after all, it is spring
and a gift of flowers is the offering
which is adored by any woman,
they mean so much and mean it in
the most thoughtful of manners.

So that your mother will be

the Elizabeth Dillon Shop.
The person who means so

but appreciate these
printed crepes and chif-

day occasions. They are
the kind of frocks that go
places and do it with the
right degree of dash, col-

with dark accessories on
gloomy days and with
white on sunny days, they are
turning the town print mad. And

We dashed right back from Ja-

over the "Bolero" sandals which

which they succeed so splendidly
