T ogs For Campus
IWear Change With
Fashion's Decree
The Michigan woman dashing to
the campus for an 8 o'clock five
years ago was a far cry from the col-
lege woman of today in regard to
campus togs. She wore silk and
crepe dresses, not shirtwaist style, to
class, dresses such as we now would
consider "date" dresses. She wore
very high-heeled shoes and only the
sheerest of sheer silk stockings.
A woman seen on campus five
years ago without a hat was prac-
tically ostracised by her fellow class-
men. One young woman who ven-
tured out without a hat on, was told
by her sorority sisters that she must
never again be seen on campus with-4
out a hat.
The heads of the different dormi-
tories and league houses gathered
their charges around them before the
beginning of the school year and
warned them that they must never
leave the grounds without a hat, and
that that was to be firmly entrenched
upon their curly locks. The girl of

But perhaps the ready admission
of the men of Michigan (that they

mind. For who dares say that the

annual Union Open House. The
three-hour period from 7:30 until

the pharmacy department displayed
the labelled ingredients of "two typ-
ical mouthwashes comparable to
those widely and often extravagant-
ly advertised. Most mouth washes,"
the exhibit advised, "should be re-
garded as cosmetic rather than ther-
apeutic agents."
The use and composition of nar-
cotics were explained by members
of the narcotics division of the De-
troit Police department in another
exhibit. The Michigan State Police
maintained an exhibition booth ex-
plaining the process of finger print-
ing. They also offered anyone's fin-
ger prints to him free of charge.
