'Way honored too.

Navy Is Favorite For Spring
Suits this spring are preferably dark with the choice of pin stripe.
Severe tailoring, short broad revers, and buttons down the hip length
jacket are featured. Shoulders are built up more than ever, and the
stern lines are softened by the soft swirl of the skirt. Accents in bright
reds, whites, and even yellows, are important. Many suits will have the
popular military touch of bright silver or gold buttons, rows and rows-
of them, on a double-breasted effect. Gay, off-the-face hats are fea-
tures with these suits.

"Spunk and gumption," asserts
Prof. H. O. Whittemore, head of thej
Landscape Department, "are -two1
qualities which every landscape archi-
tect, and especially women, must
have, if they are to be a success."
According to Professor Whitte-
more, work in this field is a "he-
man's" job often involving very large
and difficult problenms. The woman
in landscape architecture is required
to work on an equal footing with the
man, and when dealing with contrac-
tors must fight for her own points
and ideas in addition to exercising the
"artist" in her.
No one can be a member of the
National Professional Society of
Landscape Architects until they have
shown their excellence and have suc-
ceeded in passing a series of rigid
tests, Professor Whittemore states.
That 32 out of a total membership of
330 are women, shows that women
have established a good, solid foot-
ing for themselves in this Nvork.
These figures do not include the vast
number of assistants and the numbers
who have not made the effort to get

two of these 32 are graduates of
Michigan's department. Both of these,

Of all the branches in this broad
field, women are most apt to en-
gage in home grounds and gardens.
They enjoy their greatest success in
this, not because the work in this is
any easier, Professor Whittemore
claims, but because they are more
willing to pay attention to the enor-
mous amount of detail involved. Im-
patience makes men less suited, he
pointed out, and this fact is probably
the main reason why women are very
successful in this branch.
One must be willing to work under
rough conditions-and must not mind
