Instructions To Be Given
By Chas. Van Houten
Physical education classes in skiing
are now being conducted at Barbour
Gymnasium, Dr. Margaret Bell. head
of the women's physical education
department, announced recently..
Charles N. Van Houten, who is in-
structing the classes, has done most
of his skiing in the east'and some in
the Rocky Mountains. He has skied
with the Dartmouth Outing Club.
In addition to the technicalities of
skiing itself, he will teach students
how to wax and adjust their skis.
The classes are held at 3:20 p.m.
' Mondays and Wednesdays and at
2:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursdays.
Mr. Van Houten will also be at the

Every now and then something
truly educational comes off on cam-
pus, and the students, acting in the
true college spirit, generally managed
to avoid it.
Something of just this nature oc-
curred last Friday'in the Union Ball-
room-and I don't mean the dance !
Four speakers, all of them authorities
on phases of the subject, talked on
Spain and her Revolution. Two of
them were Michigan students who
have seen active service fighting in
member of Parliament, and the
Spain, one was an Englishwoman, a
fourth wad an ex-newspaper corres-
pondent for the Chicago Tribune.
Jay Allen, the newspaper man,
traced the origins of the revolution
to the establishment of the Republic
in 1931 with the resulting reforma-
tion of the army and the exceedingly
corrupt church. Allen stated that
these are the elements which are the
revolting factors, and if it hadn't
been for German, and Italian aid
shortly after the beginning of the
war the revolt would have been
crushed inside of three weeks.

Call For Gay Resort Fashions
Nobody will ever know whether you are an expert or not if you wear
a dazzling costume like the one featured above when you leave your books
for an evening of winter sport. This outfit is made of heavy wool and may
be worn with a jacket. The skirts are short and brightly colored with
matching cap and contrasting socks and mittens. Both plain colors and
plaids are shown. Colored tops and black velvet skirts are very practical
and smart. A tailored neck and padded sleeves are the vogue here as in
other gowns. For snugness a zipper in front which both beautifies and
keeps out the cold. The skirt is very full providing room for free move-
ment. It may be pleated, flared, or gored. If the skirt is separate sweaters
can be used. The eap is small and gives that exotic Russian air. It m'ay
be fur-trimmed or plain.

"June in January" was a popular
hit tune of several winters ago, and
this season it is becoming unpopular
to seek the atmosphere of June in
January by packing up and shuffling
off not to Buffalo, but to the "sunny
southlands." Whether you fortunate,
individuals who are forsaking the
snowy and wind-swept North for
sunny days and balmy breezes have
selected 'Bermuda, Puerto Rico, or
our own Florida, your wardrobe prob-
lem is praqtically solved for you.
Knowledge of the conditions and
needs of your chosen environment is
an essential factor in traveling and in
purchasing your clothes for the vaca-
tion. Even a necessarily restricted
amount of luggage need not hinder
your selection of appropriate clothes
if you plan carefully.
Strapless Mode Vogue Again
Bathing is, of course, one .f the
most popular sports participated in
by southern vacationers. As usual,
new styles have been devised for this
phase of out-door sports. The strap-
less mode is carried out in one of
the latest suits. Rayon moire is the
fabric selected for this suit which has
a pleated skirt and ruffled bodice.
Another new style feature a flattering
shirred waist and a draped bodice.
Shirred Matletex makes a suit with
diagnonal ink blue and white stripes.
Ideal for the cabana is a one-piece
violet silk play suit worn with lime-

Vivid Gowns Featured
Warm tropical nights seem to pos-
sess some strange enchantment and
mystery. Carrying over this atmos-
phere into evening gowns forms the
basis of many patterns for resort
formals. Meinbocher's dinner dress
combines huge red and pink flowers
in a riot of strangely harmonizing
color. The long-sleeved creation has
a draped bodice and graceful skirt.
The popular new suspender idea
has found its way into the evening
dress realm. A full silk skirt is striped
in dark blue and white with braces

in a ruffle at the wrist. Glamour is
added to mellow evenings by a twist-
