Shops Exhibit
Easter Bonnets
To IcyW orld
Ann Arbor is in the grip of winter
at its freezingest, so any frost-bitten
student hurrying to classes with his
hands over his ears would agree, but
spring is here in the hat shops. Light
fabrics and colors are in all the shop
windows and more new spring bon-
nets are appearing daily.,
A new hat is probably the best way
to refresh a winter costume and spirit,
and Vogue has several novel sugges-
tions to make on this point. There
are several pages showing new white
hats to compliment a black outfit-
with interesting materials such as jer-
sey and other light wools being fea-
tured. These new hats are small, us-
ually of the favorite spring style, the
sailor. They are trimmed in black-
a crisp black veil or several saucy
black bows,
The thing that distinguishes this
year's sailor hats from those of more
ancient vintage is the novel highF
crown. Indeed crowns are generally,
so high as to be reminisent of the
headgear of a Pilgrim father. They
are naturally not restricted to white,

which is rather the exception, but are
in navy, black and fresh pastel
Another new note is the wimple
which was given a big play in Life re-
cently. Growing out of the neces-
sity to protect the back of the head
and ears, left quite exposed by the
uplift hairdo and doll's hat, it con-
sists of a scarf draped from the hat
and falling down around the face and
neck. Though at present a rather
extreme idea, it threatens to become
quite popular as were the bright chif-
fon scarfs that were flaunted on the
spring hats of a few years ago. The
wimple has the same glamorous ap-
peal of those scarfs, the flowing
graceful lines give the wearer a defi-
nite Marlene Dietrich feeling.
But there are always those who will
prefer the more youthful impudence
of ridiculous small hats perched at an
impossible angle on a saucy head.
These hats will be shown in all pos-
sible shapes, from the neat compact
pill box to something resembling a
bird's nest or fish bowl. Flowers and
feathers are the favorite decoraions
at this point, nothing more spectacu-
lar or lunatic having as yet appeared
from the fertile imagination of some
ingenious fashion designer.

So you've heard the rumors about
new freshman hours to the effect that
you may have to be in on week nights
after 8 p.m.? So the Daily hopefully
conducts a survey to see if other
schools don't set a precedent of more
liberal hours? Perhaps instead you
had better thank those lucky stars

iomeopathic tIchooi for Nurses
(which amalgamated with the Univer-1
sity Hospital in 1922) has, since thatI
date, graduated approximately 1,6001
students, and is today one of the l
largest and most efficient trainingJ
units in the country.1
Clinical Services Available
Having the dual advantage of be-1
ing able to draw on the facilities of a
prominent and well-established edu-
cational institution, and, at the same;
time, being able to enjoy the unusual
clinical services found only in a large!
hospital has meant much to the stu-
dent in the way of enriched curricu-
lum and increased opportunity. And
every effort has been made to turn to
account the opportunities thus exist-
I How much success has attended
these endeavors can be seen most
clearly when we compare the school
as it exists today with that which!
the original six students entered in
the vfinter of 1891. The course of!
.instruction offered at that time was
only two years in length, and was
limited in scope to medicine, surgery
and obstetrics.
We get some inkling of the prob-
lems of expansion which had to be
met when we realize that until 1915,
the School had no full-time instruc-
tors, and, until 1898 had no special
housing facilities. In that year, with
the enrollment increased to 20, the
first nurses' home was built.
Program Enlarged
In 1918, when entrance require-
ments were made the same as those
for admission to the literary college,
we find the first sign of a "tightening
up" and gradual enlargement of the
training program. The following
year, the five-year Combined Curri-
culum in Letters and Nursing course
was instituted.
Couzens Hall, the new home for
nurses, made possible through the gift
of Sen. James Couzens, was complete
three years later, and is, today, one
of the largest dormitories on the cam-
pus. The Hall was built to include

That is the candid opinion of Mrs.
Mott, tall,wavy-haired, housemother
of Jordan Hall. Nor is her opinion to
be taken lightly. Any woman who
has over 17 pictures of undergraduate
men on her bedroom wall, and who
expects a portrait of Tom Harmon in
a few days, can well be regarded as
an authority on the subject of college
"I don't belive that I'm prejudiced,"
she added, "for Mount Holyoke, not
Michigan, is my alma mater."
After Mrs. Mott received her A.B. at
Mount Holyoke, she was engaged in
business in Jackson. Last year she.
was appointed house-mother at the

question in her mind that they were

she added, "When you'chaperon boys+
you are very likely to meet the girls
as well." I think the girls at this+
University are as friendly and naturalI
as I have found them anywhere ini

Mrs. Mott will tell you that girls
can make as much "racket" as boys,
and have just as much fun making it.
She admits that it is much easier to
enforce quiet hours at a fraternity
house than it is in a dormitory. "Don't
let anyone tell you that girls don't
have to study as much as the boys do,
though," she said.
While she doesn't miss the rushing
dinners, and agrees that brocoli is

friends at the Phi Delta Theta house
