Flare Coat is Flautering

Fullness in the skirt of this coat
is only one of its flattering feat-
ures. The set of the buttons and
the stitched pockets make for a
small waistline. Note the soft roll
of the collar and its bit of em-
bridered decoration. Such a fa-
shion leader is familiar but de-
pendabie.

Jewelry Adds
Original Dash
T o Plain Styles
It seems that collegians are very
conservative dressers-low heeled
shoes, tailored dresses, and the like.
So crazy notions had to come out
somewhere, and they're all concen-
trated in costume jewelry.
Everything from Buddhas through
the kingdom of flora to punctuation
points are put on bracelets or neck-
laces. It sounds crazy until you think
how attractively a row of wooden
Buddhas can adorn a date dress, or
how dashing a necklace or big dif-
ferent-colored question marks can
look on a sweater.
The most important place in the
costume jewelry world is taken by
imitations of fruits and flowers. Made
of cork, wood, celluloid or china,
they're of every shape and every
color, with a predominance of red,
white and blue. An especially at-
tractive pin has gold stems with cel-
luloid, bell-shaped flowers, and an-
other is a fruit cart with movable
wheels.
Movable parts are the charm of
"conversational gadget pins." Beside
wheels that go around, there are flow-
crs with bugs moving around the cen-
ter of them, and other such novelties.
Other ways of presenting flowers are
in separate clusters, each on a white
disc, or with fruits and vegetables.
Former Residents
Of Halls Will Meet
The annual spring alumnae meet-
ing of Mosher-Jordan Halls will be
held April 13 at the Detroit Yacht
Club.
A bridge luncheon will be held at
1 p.m. and will be followed by a din-
ner dance at 8 p.m. It is requested
that all wishing to make reservations
for either or both events contact
Phyllis Blauman, 8550 LaSalle Blvd.,
Detroit. Arrangements will be made
to transport anyone to the club if
the request is made far enough in
advance.

By GRACE MILLER
Black night and raw wind find
the boy turning away from the house
with the locked door to hunt for
an unlocked car in which to curl
up till morning, when he can steal
some papers to sell for his break-
fast.
Boys with this environment, or
problem boys, or underfed and un-
derprivileged boys are the ones who
are recommended by local social
workers to the University of Mich-
igan Fresh Air Camp, primarily from
southeastern Michigan, although ap
plications are received from through-
out the United States. Here is where
the proceeds of next Tag Day, May
3 and 4, will be put to work by the
Student Religious Association, whi'ch
is the camp sponsor.
260 Boys Attend
Two four-week sessions at the
camp on Patterson Lake bring about
260 boys, divided into groups of eight
or ten, under the carefully selected
leadership of the 40 counselors.
Camp routine is elastic enough to
permit the lads of each group to de-
cide whether it will be an over-night
hike, or breakfast up the lakeshore
next day. Besides the traditional
handicraft and nature study of the
summer camp, individual self-expres-
sion is encouraged, partly through
the unobtrusive form camp discip-
line assumes. A boy with energy and
musical talent is apt to find himself
leading the singing; hobbies in pain-
ing, photogiaphy and weaving are
enthusiastically followed-truly a
taste of the "good life."

Sixteen cabins, a central lodge, an
athletic building, a health cottage
given by the Galens, honorary med-
ical society, 180 forested acres jut-
ting into the lake-these are what
meet the eye, but behind them there
is a pervading largeness of spirit,.
a generosity and a love, that cannot
fail to impress even the hardest-
shelled lad.
Counselors Prepared
"The boys have two strikes on
them when they. arrive," says Pro-
fessor F. N. Menefee, director of the
camp. The counselors are fore-arm-
ed with pre-histories furnished by
parent, teacher, and local social
agency. Upon this foundation the
results of careful daily observation
are built, with great success in many
cases. Often the counselors find
they can uncover causes for the boy's
traits, and make a wholesome inroad
toward positive aid and understand-
ing. This is where the follow-up
work is important. Case histories
and observation are only half the
job, which lasts all year long. Using
any possible facts brought to light,
as past environmental obstacles,
present abilities, and personality
bents, counselors and social agents
keep the groups alive and happy with

year-round plans, as Y.M.C.A. wi
craft hobbies, or Cub organizati
At present the Fresh Air Camp
held. as. it has been since 1924
trustees Alexander Ruthven, RIc
Earhart, and Mrs. David Dyer H
ing, presumably until such tim
the University Sociology and E
cation departments can take
the work.
