you know, that beauti- ---
ful smooth tan! Tussy's
Creme is the perfect.
lotion, not sticky, and
delightful to use. If,
you're really planning j

perhaps you'd better

Dorothy Gray's Lotion ---

phobia for freckles, how about
Tussy's Anti-sunburn Foundation
Creme for a powder base.
Gleaning all these Ultra-Violet
rays you will need some ultra smart
play clothes. KESSEL'S CAMPUS
SHOP in the Arcade has the won-
derful three-piece short-and-skirt
outfits perfect for bike
hikes, picnics, sailing.
The slacks are some-
thing sleek and smooth,
too. BUT the sport
dresses are something
to rave about. Casuals
with unpressed pleats,
in melting shades;
chartreuse, rose, aqua.
And of course, shark-
skin dresses: One par-
ticular beauty in tini-

collar, and all the flares any

it's open hunting season for those
crisp, starchy, flattering dance
frocks. But the search ends at
SOREN'S (the little shop around

with a big swash-buck-
ling-red-patent belt.
Smart and oh so sleek!:
For a frivolous maid-
there's the one with
rows and rows of tiny
lace finished off with
tiny black velvet bows.
A new idea are the for-
mal skirts in taffeta or
crepe, black of course
for smartness, with
sheer chiffon shirt-
waist blouses. Pickyour
becoming color in Hyacinth Blue,
Lime, or Shell Pink.

COTTON FROCK? Of course,
haven't we all! And the DILLON
SHOP on State Street has all the
clever Doris Dodson
dresses. You've just .
never laid your eyes on
such gay colors, and 4
every frock has some J
new clever gadget in
the way of belt or trim..
A beautiful Roman
stripe linen would take
anyone's eye. A tur-
quoise printed linen
had a lovely maroon
jacket. Cutest of all are t
the outfits wtih check
skirt and crisp pique s
jacket, topping it off is
a little checked chin - chucker
pleated all around. How does this
sound: Lime homespun with rasp-

prettiest things out!

We stopped in American Samoa
yesterday, and I went ashore at Pago
Pago (pronounced "Pahngo Pahngo")
with Stuart. We were met at the dock
when we disembarked from the motor
boat by several of his Samoan friends.
Among them were his old Tongan-
Samoan mother-by-adoption, Suli,
and Saipale, a young man who had
been Stuart's assistant in a store at
Although I had not seen either of
these people before, they accepted me
as a friend-because I was vouched
for by one of their friends. They are
grand people, unsophisticated and
sincere, caring more for the simple
pleasures of life than for the super-
ficial benefits offered by the life of
the white man. After meeting two
such grand people, I am glad to be
able to count them among my friends,
and I can readily understand Stuart's
preference of the natives to the people
of his own race.
Saipale, chief of the village of
Pago Pago-the landing place is in-
correctly called by the same name-
took us to the guest house of the vil-
lage. We sat on leaf mats-"fala"
mats-on the floor and watched some
of Saipale's relatives dancing for
tourists from the ship. After long
drinks of cool coconut milk, we left
for Suli's house, in the village of
Utulei, located on thecoast onthe
ocean side of the naval base and boat
landing. When we left Saipale pre-
sented us with a beautiful pair of
sleeping mats-one coarse and one
fine-woven from fala.
Suli gave us a warm welcome at
her home, putting "ulas"-wreaths of

Research Club will meet on Wed-
nesday, May 17, at 8 p.m., in the

ing. Program: Professor R. C. An-
gell will speak on Society, Com-
munity, and Conemporary America";
and Professor N. R. F. Maier, on "Ex-

The Council will meet at 7:30 p.m.

Notice of Union Elections: On Fri-
day, May 19, will be elected in con-
junction with the all-campus elec-
tions six vice-presidents of the Michi-
gan Union, one each for (a) the Col-
lege of Literature, Science, and the
Arts and the Graduate' School, (b)
for the Colleges of Engineering and
Architecture, (c) for the Medical
School, (d for the Law School, (e)

and (f) for the remaining colleges
and schools, from the nominees as
filed with the Recording SecretaryJ
by the Nominating Committee of the
Michigan Union.

flowers-about our necks. Her house
is a large frame building, set up
high above the ground on posts. Sai.-
pale's guest house, on the other hand,
is built after the conventional Samo-
an pttern. A flattened conical roof
is set upon a circle of posts about five
feet in height. Another set of posts'
supports the center of the roof, and
the life of the entire household radi-
ates from this group of posts.
Before we had been on shore more
than twenty minutes, Suli and Saipale
had both invited Stuart and me to
stay with them while we waited for{
the next boat. Of course, on the face
of it this invitation to me seemed
like mere courtesy, but it sounded
sincere, and Stuart told me later that
Suli and Saipale had been truly dis-
appointed when we hadn't been able
to remain in Samoa with them. Such
generously spontaneous hospitality is
like nothing I have ever seen before,
and I was thrilled deeply by the kind-
ness of' my two new friends, both of
whom had taken me to their homes,
presented me with beautiful sleeping
mats, and invited me to stay.
