By the Neighbor
There were horse parties, picnics, canoeing trips, Arboretum excursions,
formal and informal dances-in fact, Ann Arbor could have been qualified
for the typical movie college town last weekend. And with the added attrac-
tion of dozens of little heroes and heroines to supply the glamorous touch
to the production.

Ferris Wheel 'Troubles A t Mischi ras ...
The Beta House put on a show of its own last weekend at Michigras,
and from all reports-well, anyhow, Ginny Zaiser's and Paul Ullmer's-it
was a thing to see and to marvel at. Which isn't saying
a thing now, is it? Over on the far side of the Field
,House, Leon Coquillette was trying to console date Grace
b Miller, who, it seems, accidentally got in the' way of
some wet paint on the ferris wheel.
- P tsy Matthews and Jack McLeod were having
a little trouble with the ferris wheel, too. When ques-
tioned as to the exact cause of her disturbance, Miss
Matthews said, "We didn't mind it when the wheel got stuck, but were we
surprised to look down and find we were on top." Jane Scott and Pete
Palmer were also seen decorating the affair with their respective (and sun-
burned) presences, as were also Monie Codere and Dave Fleming.
The Sky-Ride Insp res A Sad Tale.
No tale of this year's Michigras would be complete without some men-
tion of the sad, sad story of Jane Connell who didn't quite have a date with
Al Dubs. It seems Mr. Dubs is a Delt, and the Delts
had a sky-ride (opinions differ on this point) which
needed careful attention, and sooo . . . But they made %
up for it Sunday morning by double-dating with Naicy
Chapman and Perry Nelson for an early breakfast ate
the Island..
We just got a glimpse of the fun and festivities go- l
ing on at the Union Saturday night, but Helen Carter
(Hawaii's gift to Michigan) and Bill Brown were cer-
.;ainly having themselves a time. So were Jeanne Rak-

Newi Bathing Suitsl
Feature Rick-Rack
And Printed Pique
The first warm weather brings
thoughts of swimming to everyone,
and when it grows really hot its the
sure-cure method for cooling off.
More than this even, the thoughts of
the feminine swimmer turn to new
suits and what will be the latest thing
in fashion for the season.
This summer girlish suits are go-
ing to. lead the race for popularity
which means the dress-maker type
with a full skirt will be tops. Gay,
prints with shirred or gathered waists
add a 'graceful note to your out-of-
the-water movements and insure add-
ed comfort. Rick-rack trimming of
quaintly printed pique makes its
appearance in one new suit.
Bright flowered patterns in both one
and two-piece suits are due for great
popularity again this summer. Mexi-
can figures, Hawian surf scenes and a
host of other unusual pictures are ap-
pearing on this season's suits.
Shark-skin and pique are both
heavier materials that give a sleek,
chic note to the water-front figure
of the season. White with deep toned
contrasts in the trimming have en-
joyed great popularity during the
winter resort season and are sure to
be seen a lot up nort in the hot
month soon to come. C lored zippers
attaching top and bottom parts of two
piece suits are a naw no elty of the
year which will add a gr, gat deal to
the comfort of the swimm r.

Golden and Bill Kramer were more interested in having some trick pictures
taken of themselves, and Janet Slottow and Danny Levine were still more
interested in themselves.
Formals And Picnic Fill Weekend .,..
Jane Pfeiffer and Joe Kerzman were helping the Phi D. E. house cele-
brate the arrival of a new radio victrola Saturday night. Rhode Foxman
and Dave Friedman, Joan Ferguson and
"Cooky" Friedman spent the the eve-
ning deciding whose favorite records
were going to be played when, and it
so, why not and how come. (Whew!)
Janet Jacobson and Bill Pollak were
the life of the party at the Zeta Beta Tau
house party, which included two formal
dances, a picnic, and canoeing trip.
Madeline Kaufman and Jerry Gross-
man, Chirley Taubus and Jerry Meck-
lenburger took advantage of everything that went on. Sorry we can't supply
you with a movie close-up at this point, but it just isn't being done this sea-
son, doncha know!
