Uniform Night
Wins Approval
Of Panhellenie
Pledges Will Have Same
Meeting Night To Help
Heads Of Dormitories
A unanimous decision favoring uni-
form pledge night among sorori-
ties was made at a recent meeting of
Panhellenic Association, Stephanie
Parfet, '39, president, announced. In
view of a few minor difficulties it
was impossible to make this a Pan-
hellenic rule this semester, but that
step will probably be taken later.
The chief reason for this decision
is that a uniform pledge night would
make it possible for dormitory direc-
tors to plan meals more closely. At
the present time both Monday and
Tuesday nights are peldge nights
among the sororities, When the rule
goes into affect Monday will be speci-
fied, Miss Parfet said.
Action will be taken later on the
suggestion that both fraternities and
sororities choose the same weekend
in March for initiation. The reasons
for this suggestions are: first, it will
stimulate alumnae interest ( since
alumnae of all sororities will be in
Ann Arbor the sam~e day; second, it
will simplify the process of issuing
initiation slips for the Dean's office;
third, it is expected to provide a bond
of unity among pledges of all sorori-
ties; fourth, since all houses will plan
on the date, there will be no trouble
of conflicting house dances.
Action on the question of uniform
initiation day was postponed to per-
mit Panhellenic representatives to
sound out the opinion of their sor-
orities on the problem.
JGP Committee Meeting
The Finance Committee of the
1939 Junior Girls' Play will meet at
4 p.m. tomorrow in the Undergradu-
ate Office of the League, Jean Tib-
bits, '40, chairman, announced.

College girls this year can ac-
quire that chic casual touch by
wearing just such a tweed reefer
coat as is shown above. This type
of coat is suitable for practically
any occasion and is most flatter-
ing with its fitted lines and tail-
ored smartness.
Tweed Coats
Place Stress
On Casual Air
Casualness and a studied careless-
ness are the two new notes in the
untrimmed coats this winter. This
pertains, of course, only t( sport and
spectator sport coats. Tweeds and!
camels hair are the predominating
fabrics and their common-placeness
is forgotten in the variety of color
combinations that they offer.
A typical winter reefer is the coat
pictured above. It is well tailored with
sport lapels, buttons down the front,
has padded shoulders, fitted back
and waist-line. This coat is becoming
in solid black or deep navy blue
fine-weave wool and also in the rich
English tweeds which subtly blend
many colors into a black or brown
Background with the white or gray-
white grain.
Reefer Plays Dual Role
This type of coat is in good taste!
almost anywhere for it is a Jack-of-
all-trades affair. With dressy sport
accessories it can be worn at the
coctkail bar, open house, tea, matinee
and on those casual dates in the eve-
ning. It has a dual role, being suit-
able for town and country wear.
For the woman who feels that a
reefer coat is too revealing, there is
the nifty swagger coat. This coat is,
most flattering for it suggests slen-
derness, especially in the tall but
stoutish person, whereas the .reefer
coat gives long lines to the shorter
Miss. One should select her coats in
accordance with her figure, choosing
that which does the most for her.
Camels Hair For Campus
There are many types of swagger
coats to chose from. The camels hair
with broad shoulders and roomy
sleeves is especially styled for com-
fort when knocking around campus
or in the country. It is the ideal coat
for a long winter tramp on those win-
try windy days. Being well interlined
it offers sufficient protection and it
is smart looking besides.

Swagger coats are equally chic -in
white grain tweeds and can be worn
with many colors for they contain the
multi-colored hues of the rainbow
within their tweed mixture. There
are some who prefer their swagger
coat to have a dressy touch and in this
case one can have a collar of heavy
fur like raccoon, skunk, wolf, or red,
gray or silver fox.


ANGORA, of course - the baby-check-like ingredient that makes
the new sweaters downy soft and far more appealing than the
flatter, harsher mixture of yore. Indeed, there's been so much fuss
as well as fuzz about angora that a genuine shortage looms just
ahead. As the supply of angora has definite limitations, prices are
zooming. We. with commendable intuition, foresaw all the fuss
