..t4ou ficlkle old man. March- is
soxt of~ oudoing hes lion act and cur-
r ,xt sartorial fancy ,is :restricted to
??itens, piufFers,, and ear muffs, ur
spring and summer styles are berg
set for us right now way down yonder
!n the. sunny southiands,. on. Florida
beaches, and New Mexican ranchos.
,Truckloads of summery, light cloth-
Ogare being unloaded into our State
street haberdasheries, and with the
Prst hint of spring will be displayed
to a winter-tired campus.
The big questi~r} at the moment
poncerning informal canpus attire
as "What about- the beer jacket?"
fast year the duck drinking jacket
was begun at Princeton and spread
1apidly to university and prep school
alike. But somehow a more formally
inclinedIMiehigan Gaxpus stubbornly
Frefused to acept the beer jacket with
full-hearted approval.
Jackots Didr °I GGQ QOmer
Many stuents did.wear them, it
is true, and een several fraternities
ordered hatches made uipwith their
§eal qn, ,the breat pcket. But the
beer jacket never even approachd the
heights of popularity it enjoyed. in
other universities, chiefly the style-
setting eastern ones.
MSo this ear the qlestion is a
prominent one. Men want t know
if the stores and factories are going
to force the jackets on them by . not
turning out _anything that mightbe
a substitute, or will they for once
create a supply to 'meet the demand.
Jacket producers and haberdashersj
have long protested against the shod-
4y beer jacket, claimed they wereof-
fensive, sloppy, ani not, very popular.'
It has been our sage observation, how-
;ever, that this pentiment was insti- ;
gated by mercenary motives. Therej
is not ,muh,prfit to, be iaaoe in the
modestly priced beer jackets- a
strong reason for t eir overwhelming
popularity. Be that as it 'may this
spring will see rthe.substitution of<
the' dressier bush coat for th beer
Formerly Expensive Affairs -
The bush coat as formerly an expen- '
sive affair used chiefly for golfing,
hiking, corntry x Mot''n and similar
rough wear.. Tis winter .however;1
complete bush suits, in wshable
cottons, in off-whites and egg shell; ,
appeared on Florida beaches
The suits are light, extremely com-t
fortable-dnd smart-looking, and are
moderat~ely, priced. Chiefly jacket as
been brought north for campus wear,
although the complete suits are avail-
aPle. A heavier windproofed and'
waterproofed bush jacket, for, early
spring, worn with woolen, gabadine,
or flannel slacks, and the universally
favorite saddle shoes will. present a °
very popular outfit.
aA jacket of the lighter ,fabric will;r
b~e more suitable for later'spring: and
It. will especially appeal to those
who objected to the offensive- beer
jacket, and will also meet the fancy
of men who are tired of loud sport
jackets, and who wanted something
mnore informal, yet would hardly wear
beer jackets.f
The'bush jacket Is very ressy, has
four patch pockts , a sip riing;belt ,,c
and open swaggr bottpm. It comest
in mackinaw or j ket length in. sev- '
eral colors and. fa Jics.r
