inaugurating a new Orientation Proj-
ect for both freshmen and upper-
cla:swomen new on campus for the

advantages and opportunities of the
Michigan campus and of developing
in them an attitude which will enable
them to make the most of their col-

throughout the year and is under
the direct control of the undergrad-
uate women of the League, an or-
ganization which as the composite of
all the women's activities on campus,
has the facilities for putting across
such a plan.
Contact will be immediately estab-
lished with the entering women
through the student advisors and1
their assistants who are assigned to
each freshman group. These advisors
will remain in charge of the groups
throughout the first semester and will
meet with them once a week in order
to advise them as well as to hold
round table discussions. At these
meetings there will, from time to'
time, be student speakers to explain
various activities in which the group
is interested.
.In addition to these group meet-
ings there will be meetings every
Wednesday from 5 to 5:45 p.m. at
the League for the entire body of
new women. At this time each week
there will be a facultyispeaker to dis-
cuss some phase of University life. At
New Materials For
Campus Wear Seen
"For campus wear" is a term ap-
plied to a large assortment of new fall
dresses. Not only does it include many
new and original styles but also new
materials, a wide collection of plaids,
checks, stripes, and novel colors.
Perhaps one of the most popular of
the latest styles is the "butcher boy
dress." This features a two-piece
model, the blouse of which is belted in
front and allowed to flair out in back.
The close-fitting skirt accompanying
this blouse is slit from the hemline to
the knee in the center back.
Another new addition is the dress
with a "monk's neck." The dress prop-
er is very simple the attention being
placed on the boat-shaped neck with
a rolling collar.
Tunicslare shown this fall, some
buttoning up the front, some down
the back with no buttons at all. 8hirt-
waist dresses are also good again.
Colors are new and stimulating this
