By HELEN M. DOUGLAS
Whatever the young man of today
may think about women's fashions he
emphatically does not like red nail
Out of thirteen representative men
on campus interviewed yesterday,
c only one favored brilliant lacquer.
This, and other facts pertaining to
the male view of feminine styles,
was determined in a survey of the
opinions of various big men on cam-
"They're wionderful!" was Dave
Burnett's reaction when asked what
he thought of women's fashions. Dave
likes fur trimmed galoshes -espe-
cially white ones! He is also partial
to short dresses, perfume, and muffs,
although he added that the latter
are not very appropriate for the
classroom. Red nail polish is out as
far as Dave is concerned.
McCarthy Against Hats
Jack McCarthy agreed whole heart-
edly on the subject of the polish. "I
don't like it!" was his reply -but his
pet peeve is silly hats. Jack thinks
fur trimmed galoshes are excellent
and also likes hoods on evening wraps.
Frank Aikens is very easy to please.
In fact, he likes everything except
bright nail polish. "They're great!"
was his verdict on muffs, and fur
trimmed galoshes are fine. Frank
thinks the Michigan woman is pretty
well up on her fashions.
If the woman likes it, it's all right
with Wencel Neumann, no matterI
what the subject is. He doesn't par-f
ticularly care for hair ornaments or
earrings - but, as was said before -
it's up to the girl. One good bit of
advice offered by Wencel was that a
round-faced girl should not wear ear-
rings - this was not to be printed!
Dixon Favors Perfume
Contrary to most of those inter-
viewed, Bill Dixon does not care for
fur trimmed galoshes. "They're
silly!" Red nail polish doesn't bother
him and he likes perfume - in mod-
"Carioca reds" as colors for eve-
ning dresses appeal to Tommy Sul-
livan. Tommy thinks white galoshes

Here's something! A much sat-in
velvet dress is Norm Williamson's
pet peeve! Like Tommy, he doesn't
care for white garshes, and he
doesn't like "lots of curls" in girls'
hair. Norm mentioned one of the
fragile campus beauties who proved
an exception to this rule. Norm
sneaked in a complaint about the
trouble a fellow has in getting a
suitable corsage for a girl.
