Golfers And lill Cliulbersl
Require Wash Material,I
Wide Skirts, Jackets
After a fall of rain almost equalling
the proportions of the original Deluge,
Ann Arbor is finally enjoying weather
that will permit Sunday morning,
breakfasts out in the open and eve-
ning picnics along the Huron.
While clothes for these outdoor
parties must of necessity be sturdy
and practical, it does not follow that
they should be unattractive combina-
tions of shapeless old skirts and faded
sweaters. Outdoor clothes can be'
just as smart as other types if time
and care are spent on their selection.
Nothing could be better to wear for a
picnic than a jacket, blouse and skirt,
that were assembled in a campus
clothes shop.
Soft Green Wool Chosen
With the soft green wool jacket,j
a tan wool pleated skirt was worn,
and a crash linen blouse repeated the
colors of the jacket and skirt in its
plaid. A tiny thread of red gave
the plaid added dash.

The activities of the group take
them on hikes and picnics all over
the city. A new experience came to
Ada Zolla, '37, when, in the chill of
early spring, she had to wade into the
depths of the Huron River to find a
Mickey Mouse watch dropped by one
of the girls. This same group started
to sew three-cornered shaped scarfs
some two months ago.
Stuffing The Ballot Box
Charlotte Kahn, '37, found great
difficulty in holding elections in the
group. The ballot box was stuffed
in the traditional manner, after
which the culprit confessed that she
did the deed because she thought her
candidate deserved the position in
question. Miss Kahn was amazed one
day to discover her group looking a
bit peculiar. After careful scrutiny
she realized that half of them had
curled the hair on the top of their
heads, a thing that she herselfhad
done the week before.
The finaladrive for money occurred
last night at the Penny Carnival at'
the Jones School. Ruth Lipis, '37,
had to persuade her group that, when
selling flowers, they could not wear4
their conception of a flower girl's
costume, the Hollywood one.

TO INTRODUCE the 1937', 38 Fur Modes, we
want to sell 22 really fine sample coats - just 22,
mind you, not more - at 35'l less than we would
ordinarily price them. Because constantly increas-
ing prices in fur and labor coats like these will
be at least 35%> higher. It seems almost impera-
tive that you take advantage of this offer.
A small deposit will hold your coat in our
scientific storage vaults until you want it next Fall.
