People around Mosher Hall are

their hands to keep from saying,
"Well?" after their friends' remarks.
If someone says, "Golly, I look like
a bored junk pile," it's so easy to
say, "Well??" implying that a bored
junk pile has a perfect right to look
like a bored junk pile.

Informality Is
Key To Dress
For Michigras
This little world's fair called the
Michigras that's coming off next:
weekend necessitates a serious thought
as to what the well-dressed girl wili
wear. Anove all other things dress-up
clothes are definitely not the thing
to appear in.
Casual clothes are the best bet-
saddle shoes and all that goes with
them. The smart suit shown in the
picture is one of the most appro-
priate things that could be worn. Ac-
cordion pleated skirts with sheer
blouses are cool and may easily be
cleaned to free them of the layers
and layers of dust that, accumulate.
Shirt waist dresses with full pleat-
ed skirts adapt themselves nicely to
dancing on the Pi Phi Pent House
and offer freedom while climbing on
and off the ferris wheel. It's going to
be a marvelous fair but promises to
be just as dusty as last year so the
final admonition is to go easy on the
light colored clothes.

Interviewing For Adviser
Posts Ao Be Continued
Interviewing for advisers and assist-
ant advisers of freshman women will

fer advisorships must be interviewed

man, said.
