It's Not The Job It Used To Be - It's a Job
For Cleaners Skilled In Their Profession.
IN RECENT YEARS dry cleaiing has progressed from ordinary dry cleaning
to scientific cleansing. Each year adds some improvement to this de,-art-
ment. We have adopted Microleoen as the most perfect rrethod up to date.
Suit materials such as tweeds and coarse homespuns, which are popular
this year, gather considerable soil in the weaves and require not only the
removal of surface soil which may be seen by the eye, but also the removal
of embedded grit and soil which can only be seen under the microspope and
the restoring of animal oil present in all wool materials to impart -heen
and touch to the fabric.
MICROCLEAN performs all these servTices without fail and constant test;
are made each day to insure uniformity.
Suits sent in for cleaning go through these different or1erat ions. First -
they are marked in and searched for onything left in the lpoC.kets. Such
articles are tagged and put in envelopes to insure return to customers. The
pockets and trouser cuffs are blown cut with compressed air to remove
accumulated dirt and lint. They are then sorted according to color and
fabric and then MICROCLEANED.
Next-they go to the Spotting Department where stains requiring the
work of a chemist are removed. The cuffs are then tacked up and garments
inspected for missing buttons and minor repairs. From there the garments
go to the battery of latest type pressing machines where the garments are
gently reshaped on the different steam presses to their original shape and
Experienced men are required in this department who can reshape and
distinguish between the different materials. A blue serge is pressed dif-
ferently from a coarse tweed. A tuxedo is reshaped differently again from a
Palm Beach. After pressing the linings of the tuxedos an'd full dress suits are
hand-ironed to insure a back to new appearance.
All garments are then inspected thoroughly as to cleaning, pressing, repair-
ing, buttons, etc.
Any special requirements of the customer, such as round sleeves, roll lapels
or round cuffs on trousers are given special attention without extra cost.
The finished garment is now placed on a hanger which will not leave a
crease in the trousers from hanging or will the shoulders sag. These hangers,
while expensive, insure a perfectly cleaned and pressed suit to be delivered
to the customer.
When you arrive in Ann Arbor, stop in and we will explain the different
processes tq you and alho furnish a guide for your inspection of our plant
which should prove quite interesting.

Football is always good from the spectators' point of view, but when one can see the Michigan teams go prancing up and
down the field from a perch at the top of the 87,000 capacity MICHIGAN STADIUM, the game will leave a lasting
impression. The stadium has been the home of the many champion Michigan teams, and until last year always sdw the
finest teams in the country within its walls. Two years ago for the Ohio State-Michigan game there was such a demand
for seats that temporary bleachers were put up until the seat ng capacity was 93,000, the largest crowd ever massed in one
structure east of the Mississippi. This year, we are told, Michigan is not going to have the same sad fate that it had in '34
and we again expect the large attendance that we had back i, i the days of Wistert and Fay.



April st, 1936 --on and after
this date spring garments are in
vogue, so let us suggest you send
in your furs for Cold Storage and
cleaning - cleaning by the furriers
method; that is, the scientific saw-
dust cleaning method recommend-
ed by all furriers. GREENE'S is
the c rly company 'n the city
li ndling Cold Storage.
For your winter garments, cloth
coats, cvercoat;, wool dresses, wool
suits, tuxedoes, in fact, anything
along the woolen line, send them
in as they are discarded for Spring.
We will clean, cold store, insure
and protect there from moths
ready for your return again in the
fall. It eliminates all the carrying
home and back again and costs you
no more than to have it done at
home. You do not pay anything
for this service until fall when you
get your garments back. All work
is insured by the largest Insurance
Company in the world. We feel
this is a truly wonderful service -
typical of our superior quality.

White gloves, black gloves, long
gloves, short gloves, men's gloves
or ladies gloves -- all clean beauti-
fully. Our glove department is
modernly equipped to handle all
kinds of gloves. Any gloves which
ar~e cleaned, having ripped seams,
are resewed without charge on our
regular factory glove-stitching ma-
chines ----the only glove-stitching
machines in Ann Arbor.
- """ningt b'[~'Zent 'a Credit
Department who will be pleased to
:pen a personal charge account t:)
ty student who can furnish ade-
:lttate credit information.
Monthly statements will be sent
directly to the student or to the
parents for theirsapproval, which-
ever they reauest.
We feel this service is one to be
considered,tas our credit records are
kept accurately and brought regu-
larly to the student's attention and
he in turn can check, as well as the
parents, on his "cleaning budget" at
any time.


A competent staff of tailors and
dressmakers are employed at all
times for your convenience. How-
ever, we do not make new gar-
ments, either suits or dresses.
We are, however, in a position
to alter, repair, reweave, reline,
patch, and make over any suit,
overceat, topcoat, leather jacket,
new cuffs, zippers, et^., in fact, if it
can be repaired, we can do it.
Cuffs of trousers which are worn
may be turned 'so as to still re-
tain the cuff and the exact same
1enth. Trousers are being worn
for fall to the beels in Ann Arbor.
Sleeves can also be lengthened
or shortened to suit at nominal
Reline jobs with a guarantee. A
large supply and variety of differ-
ent quality and colors of lining are
carried at all times.
If the seat of your trousers get
thin, as is natural in going to
school, do not wait until they are
worn through, send them in early
and have them reinforced. You
will be unable to see the patch as
it is on the inside well secured and
doubles the life of the trousers.

YOST FIELD HOUSE. This immense building houses a great many of major sports events . . . basketball, track meets,
football practice when weather is inclement. You'll see a great deal of this building.
