Skirts have become an institution
in every college girl's wardrobe. They
like the United States Constitution,
have undergone various interpreta-
tions and amendments since their
creation, but all in all they have re-
tained the essential qualifications of
a skirt. And now in this present era,
skirts as well as dresses are one of
the implied requirements for enter-
ing college. At least we could hardly
imagine going to college without at
least one tucked in our wardrobe.
They have adapted themselves very
well to our changing tastes. Now,
just as spring is sighted on the distant
horizon, all the heavy prickly winter
skirts are beginning to disappear, and
in their place come some very vernal-
looking ones with new soft colorings
to freshen up our wardrobe.
Plaids For Spring
The latest style says plaids for
spring, or as one fashion magazine
words it, "small checks to pay big
dividends." All sorts of color com-
binations are to be found. A few
suggestions are: Brown, blue and
gray; gray, brown, and yellow; or if
a gayer note is desired, dark blue,
white and red.
Fashion requires a skirt to be tai-
ored. It must be beautifully cut into
a neat trim model that makes one
look tall and slim. Flared black skirts
are very popular. These skirts are
designed for action with fullness at
the bottom. Also styles that have one
or two panels stitched up the front

Supply Of Skirts
receive much attention. One style1
has rows of tucks streaking from the
flaps at the yoke down the front into
a burst of pleats at the knees.
Skirts and Socks
A smart new skirt lifts an outfit out
of the ordinary run. Choose a lighter
weight skirt that has a future in the
coming spring and that can still be
worn now under a fur coat. Much
in vogue right now is the fad of wear-
ing matching ankle socks with your
skirts and sweaters. During the past'
few months socks have matched
sweaters, but with the incoming sup-
ply of 'pastel colored skirts for spring,
skirt and sock combinations are man-
ifesting themselves.
One local shop is featuring this
week a spring-like window arrange-
mcnt of new skirts and sweaters. The
skirt colors are soft and warm, butj
the accompanying sweaters are in;
neutral tones of gray and beige. But-
tons down the front further distin-
guish the flared skirts.

Buffet Supper
Will Be Served
At Union Today
Game Rooms To Be Open;
Ballroom To Be Used As
Radio Lounge
Students and faculty members are
invited to attend the second buffet
supper to be held tonight from 6 to
7:30 p.m. in the main dining room of
the Union. Howard M. Campbell,
'38, who is'in charge of the supper,
has urged everyone .Ato come and
take an active part in this social hour.
The first supper was held last Sun-
day evening and was attended by 48
people. According to Campbell, the
Union is planning for more guests
this week since the enthusiasm
shown last week was indicative of
growing popularity. Supper is served
on a long table in the dining room
and waiters are stationed in the
room to assist with coffee and des-
sert. The charge for the supper is
50 cents a plate.
The game rooms will be open dur-
ing the afternoon and evening for

supper the second floor ballroom will
be open for social gatherings. I'
will be furnished as a lounge witl-
radios for entertainment. People may

So Michigan women are all grown-
up, sophisticated and blase? Thenl
here is some information that doesj
not coincide with that statement at
all. Using Betsy Barbour residents as1
a representative group of campus'
women, it was discovered that these1
85 residents possess, all together, ex-
actly 175 stuffed or china animals,
birds and dolls. Toys are supposed
to go hand-in-hand with childhood-
so where does that leave sophistica-
tion? Something is sadly a-miss
Dogs Popular
Dogs seem to be the most popular
of all the animals. They number 84,
while elephants make a not-very-
close second with 17 and bears are
third with 10. Ducks lead the bird
class with 20 representatives, and
there are nine penguins. Dolls, al-
though definitely inferior in number,
do play their part in making up the
amazing accumulation of toys and
Another thing that might be men-
tioned is that the majority of these
pets are carefully named. Since
most of the dogs are Scotties, their
names are appropriately chosen-
such as Mac, Angus, Jock and Sam-
uel McGuire. But then there are
some names which seem to have no
connection whatsoever-Butch, Po-
kie, Taffy, Tarazan, Sherry and Ish-
kabibble. Also some dogs are quite
undistinguishable as to breed, par-
ticularly those made of brilliantly
colored plaids.
Bertha The Cow
Two of the elephants are called
Pinkie, and there are also several
answering to the names of Landon
or Knox. Among the bears are
Winnie-the-Poo I and Winnie-
the-Poo II. Nor should Adolph
;he tiger be forgotten, nor Bertha the
,ow, Spot Cash the horse, Cleopatra
the giraffe, Penelope the cat, Fanny
'he rabbit, Josephine the monkey,
Freddie the frog nor Franklin the
Nearly all the ducks are named
Donald. One penguin is Addie Byrd
and another is Snort. Socrate is an
owl; Oscar, an ostrich.
Perhaps the students keep these
stuffed and china creatures for their
sentimental value; but it should be
a safe guess to say that they bought
most of them becausethey could not
resist them. And is that evidence of
At Northwestern University, all

Perhaps owing to the present
3panish revolution, the newest hats
are inspired by the land of toreadors

esemblance to a bull-fighter's skull

THE TANGS of winter - real
winter - are now upon us and as
the snow flurries down and the
wind whistles through our rattling
windows, you'll feel rather glad
that you have exams to keep you
from venturing out - or am I
mistaken? Anyway we hope the
radiators stick by us!
BUT TIME OUT for a while
before you hibernate, you studious-
creatures, I have found some very
good "catches" for this week in
my gadding - and the very first
is something that the fair maids
of Ann Arbor have been yearning
for for many a year. At CALKINS-
FLETCHER'S they are featuring
Tussy's cleansing cream which is
rich enough to use as a night
cream to soften those chapped
faces, lips included, and even your
hands - and incidentally it looks
good enough to eat! (I wouldn't
try it however!) It comes in sev-
eral size jars but the 8-ounce jar
holds enough to last the whole
school year providing your room-
mate and other little pals don't
pitch in too. Or we might say
it wouldlast one semester with the
roomie's part ownership -now
there's a point! But really this
IS worthwhile - especially if the
wind still blows and the snow still
snows !

THERE'S NO END to the ad-
vantages of gadding these days
because sales are popping up right
and left - now is really the-time
to show that you are really a

snow caps-which will come in
very handy these days when you
slip away from the grind for some
of Ann Arbor's long-waited-for
winter sports. You'd better hurry
down before the crowds arrive-
and then after the sale just you
wait until you see the new abode!
A NEW COIFFURE to go with
that new chapeau would really set
you off - you've no idea! And
speaking of coiffures and things,
I hardly need tell you that
at your service! And incidentally
one of the secrets of their su-
cess in your shampoo that makes
your hair look so soft and glisten-
ing is that soft water is used en-
tirely. The other secrets are -
well-just that certain technique!
Facials and manicures are also
among their specialties and you've
no idea of the soothing effect of
a facial at Dimattia's! Ask any-
one who has had one! They all
METHODS for forgetting exams
(for the time being, understand)
are in the air -and one of the
best is to go down and buy your-
self a new dress. It has worked
for years - ask any of the Mich-
igan veterans - and ELIZABETH
DILLON'S SHOP has foreseen this
"getting away from it all" and is
well stocked with perfectly stun-
ning pastel wool dresses that will
be a temptation - no foolin'!
