Light Felt Hats
Are Tops Now


. " {

Dark Himhurg Now Worn
For Semi-Sports
Now that the radiator no longer'
looms large in our daily, life, the
heavyweight hats, of winter 'are puta
aside with a sigh of- relief and' well-
dressed men turn to the lightweight'
smart felts suitable for spring wear.
One of the best looking of these
is the cavalier hat. It got its name
from its resemblance to the dashing
hats of the ancientecavaliers of Eng-
land; an illustration of it appears on
the large head in the center. The
hat is made of soft lightweight felt
and has a narrow band. The brim
has a pronounced curl and should'
always be worn turned up.
More conservative is the low crown
wide brim hat with the welt edge.
This hat is always worn with the brim,
snapped down and is an excellent
country job.
The cap, too, is winning increasing .
favor for country wear. It may be
worn with a one-piece top as illus-
trated at the left, or in anew small
varsity shape that has seven pieces
and a button in the center.
Tyrolean and semi-Tyrolean hats'
are seen more and more on well-
dressed men. The model in the lower-
lefthand corner of the illus'tration is a
semi-Tyrolean hat with a tweed band.
These hats look best in shades of
brown and green.

Joe Q. Flyubdub
Tells 'Of Men's]
Pants And How
When questioned on the prevalence
of pant-wearing males on the Univer-
sity campus, Joe Flubdub, noted men's
fashion expert, responded thus: "I
can see. that trousers might prove
convenient to many young men, since
I have seen several rather nasty speci-
ments of bowed and'knock-kneed legs
in the University locker rooms. It
certainly would not do for such a
man to walk about with these extrem-
ities exposed to the callous view of
strangers. Nevertheless, the fact re-
mains that trousers, as merely an
innovation introduced by a Keokuk,
Iowa, tailor to boost his fabric sales,
Are an unnecessary and cumbersome
article of apparel. Of course, I am
cognizant that, since trousers are
destined to be a short lived fad, they
should soon go the way of all fads.
Still in all, we should do everything
in our power to prevent the spread
of this decadent evidence of mascu-
line vanity.
"It is to be regretted that so many
fine, well turned male legs should be
relegated to the comparative obscur- .
ity of the privacy of their boudoirs.
We men should take a leaf from the
opopsite sex and expose as much of
our lower extremities as is discreetly
possible, Flubdub said.
We questioned Mr. Flubdub con-!
cerning a possible remedy for this'
crisis in male fashions. "Elimination
can be the only result," he said. "One
good solution is the wearing of knee
breeches, or even truncated trousers,
certainly extending no further than
the knee. This article has been re-
ferred to, in the more uncouth regions
of the East, as shorts. I have even in-
vestigated the extreme of exposure,
the breech-clout."
Although we agreed heartily with
Mr. Flubdub's views, we thought it
would be more authoritative to query,
student opinion on this vitally im-'
portant issue. Women students were
included in our poll. The results are
published as follows.
Male pct. Female pet.
Trousers..........2 38
Knee breeches ......5 8
Truncated trousers. 7 3
Breech clout ......43 1
No trousers......43 0
Unfortunately no less than 50 per
cent of the women students who voted
in the poll wrote in "No men."
For those.men who object to the
relative confinement imposed upon
their' necks by a collar, the ascot
scarf, now being developed in many
new styles, provides a welcome re-

Get ready, fellows, here they come!
Ann Arbor is going to entertain some
24 karat royalty imported from the
realm of Zog and you had betcer
brush up on your royal suits.
A certain Law School fraternity
wrote to KingZog's sisters three and
.enjoined them to come over and see
Ann Arbor while .they where touring
the United States looking for Girl
Scouts. The princesses replied that
they would be glad to come and asked
the lawyers to have some "royal suits"
ready. However, because the corner
of the telegram was torn the lawyers
are not sure whether the "queens"
meant royal suits, suitors or suites.

The Latest "As Seen in

Be that what it may, .the campus
will certainly have to break out in a
cloud of appropriate costumes for the
visiting potentatettes. At the last
writing Emily Boast had not made up
her mind just what Albanians wear-
or how much. So we have had to im-
provise a little.
Because shoes as so universal, we
suggest that everyone should wear
shoes during this trying period. Then,
it seems rather generally believed
that women shouldwear dresses, and
we again concur. As or you fellows,
gosh - you will be packed so tight
around the three princesses, they
won't be able to tell just what you
are wearing.
