Swimming Club
Meets Yesterday
Much splashing was in evidence at
the meeting yesterday of the Michi-
gan Women's Swimming Club, as the
girls practiced starts and turns, and
wore themselves o u t swimming
lengths. The reason for all this ac-
tivity is explained by the fact that
the girls are training for future meets,
to be held during the first part of
the new semester.
Any women who would like to try
out for the club may do so at 4 p.m.
any Monday afternoon at the Union
Pool. Their times will be taken to
determine their qualification for
membership.

A smart high brimmed Tyrolean
hat trimmed with a soft fluffy
feather gives a sophisticated air to
that campus outfit.
High Feathers,
BArushes Adorn
SportToppers.
It's not very often that the college'
girl bothers ;o complete her campus
outfit with a hat, but when she does
happen to feel rather sophisticated
and mature, she will invarably choose
a sport topper.
Last year, you remember, everyone
wore "snap brims." There were a few
unfortunate individuals who looked
a bit squashed and flat-headed, but
generally this was a flattering and
comfortable style. Then the Tyro-
lean craze began to influence sport
hats. Crowns grew steeper, and the
effect was infinitely more becoming.
It was all in keeping with embroid-
ered sweaters and tasseled socks.
Shaving Brush Bristles Misused
That's one explanation then of
the new hats-that they borrowed
the idea from some Tyrolean yodler.
However there has been another ru-
mor floating around. Last year the
American male whole - heartedly
adopted the electric razor. The shav-
ing brush companies were faced with
a crisis. There were disturbed con-
ferences; but finally, by a brilliant
transaction, they disposed of their
surplus supply of bristles to the hat-
makers. Now you see them every-
where-every third hat-masculine
headgear not excepted-sports an at-
tractive little shaving brush.
Another innovation this year was
the "pork-pie," which the college co-
ed copied quite frankly from her col-
legiate brother or date.
No Ceiling On Feathers
Sport hats come in every hue and
color-conservative b r o w n s and
greens, smart black or alluring pastel
shades. If you prefer, it may be
trimmed with a soft fluffy feather.
Feathers, by the way have hit an all-
time high. Competition has become
feverish-no sooner does one girl ap-
pear with a three foot feather than
her room-mate rushes down to buy
one three feet five inches tall.
We personally have nothing against
this fad, but we do think a short girl
looks a tiifle ridiculous carrying a
feather several times her own height.
Also the door situation reminds one
of that era in France when ladies had
to have openings cut in the tops of
doors in order that their towering
head dresses could pass through.

Party Line
fly the Neighbor
And so we have another year with its resolutions, but we had a week-
end just the same! Sleigh rides (excuse me, hayrides, these January thaws!)
an exciting hockey game, and lots of places to dance revived the old pepD
despite those fluttering visages of conscience and much needed rest afterI
vacation!
Among our weaker-willed and fun loving individuals who deserted the
books for a bit of relaxation were Ginny Schwegler and Bob Buchner who'
sought it at the Gamma Phi hay-ride. John Swishert
and Hattie Dean, tiring of the horse's dogged pace, ran,
walked and jogged along side, ringing doorbells along:
" f the way. Back at the house missles flew, so some off
the party took shelter under the nearest table, but
Bobby Chissus and John Parker calmly proceeded to1
" "f* " explain the intricacies of bridge to Pedo Ortmayer andt
Ted Novae.K
That same night, we saw Jack Brennan. Sol Sobsey and Ed Frutig "do-
ing a postman's holiday" at the hockey game. Charlie Kettler, the man
who's always startling people with his proclamation "this is the last day!
to buy the 'Ensian at this price, BUY NOW!", was a bit disturbed himselft
when one of the pucks flew into the audience. Nor were George Whitmant
and Lenore Johnson looking any too secure with the play so close at rand.
Cameraman Gets The .ird ..
At the Phi Beta Delta radio dance, Marjorie Ullman and Jerry Schwartz-
bek and Judy Frank and Leon Pershing Dicker crowded 'round while Bob
Bach took reels and reels of pictures. Bob was slightly embarrassed when
he found out that he'd forgotten to put in the film!
Over at the Lambda Chi dance we saw Patty Mat-
thews, Jack McLeod, Jane Scott and Dick Knowe and /
then the "Line" got held- up a trifle while Shorty Wolfe
and Beth Jenkins "switched" dances with Wanda
Thompson and Dave Peet . . .
But it came through with excellent connection at
both the League and the Union. Friday night at the
former found Harriet Thom and Harvey Clarke follow-
ing the rhythm of Zwick's stick. Colburn Cherney was.
also there with Mabel , whose name we could
not get but whose phone number is 5445.
Steinle was beating it out at the Union, and so were Elaine Matheney an
and Bill Niles. Amid the maze of dancers we also spotted Betty Whitely and
Marshall Crawford Brown, Jr. (commonly known as PORT!.
Steinle And Zwick Swing Out ..
Evidently the students on this campus haen't heard that prosp.rity
is still lurking coyly behind a bush. Saturday night both dance floors werek
ammed again. At the League we saw Charley Smith with Beverly Clark, who
was stopping through on her way to:Boston after seeing America first. She
naively confided that she half expected to see Indians this far west! Instead
she saw Margaret Whittemore with Bill Lyman (quite civilized I assure you!)
Bud Sherman and Ginny Keilholtz and Nancy Gould with man-about-Ann
Arbor, Bill Comstock. Janet Dickinson's and Gonzalo Semper's smooth danc-
ing was enough to straighten out the astigmatism in any man's eyes.
Among those dancing under the Union's varied colored lights were Marg
Cleary and Foster Wilkinson-who were bringing ridicule down upon them-
selves with a big game story involving the would-be shooting of a rabbit!
AggiesCrow and Bill Worthington were dancing to the "Umbrella Man" and
others. Looking slightly disgruntled in the Union after the dance were Torn
Buermann and Jack Ellsner, waiting for their respective dates.
Bowery Dance Is Given
By way of diversion, we stopped in at the Sigma Alpha Mu bowery party'
Saturday night. Dressed up in "gay ninety" garb were Ruth Jacobson, Harry
Bloch, Zelda Davis and Jerry Dick. Which reminds us, al-
though we don't quite know why, about the impromptu
tea party which Meyer Davis, Forrest Beckwith and David
Stocking held at the Allenal that same evening.
Time marches back to the Phi Sigma Kappa pledge
formal Friday night, where Francis Besancon and Harold
" ' '' Adler, Sally Connuy and Jack Maytham, and Mary Gret-
chen Connine and Bob Paver arrived just in time to see
Mary Trelfa and Jim McPherson give the "Big Apple" its
last shine.
The formal season opened at Mosher and Jordan Halls
with their formal supper parties on Friday night. At the
- Jordan dance, looking contented and well-fed were Ginny
+v:\ Zaiser, Paul Vallner, Mary Gage and Paul Theriaulty.
: - -* Agnes Landers and Dick Higgins, Virginia Durand and
Dick Fletcher were seen flitting by at Mosher. Thus endeth the first week-
end of '39; till next week, adios!
