New Spring Wear
Will Chase Gloom
With Cheery Hues
Now that the weather man has fol-
lowed the example of the regents in
celebrating the advent of spring the
campus population has followed suit:
by returning from vacation with
trunksful of sparkling new clothes.
All in all the most delicious spring
colors, smart styles and what have
It would seem that the dreary class
room scenery is about to be pepped
up by a'host of cheerful cottons with
the first warm day. Fine spun cot-
ton is appearing in weaves that look

.. .of cabbages
and kings ..
Hello folks!
This is your Ann Arbor correspondent, attempting to report on some
of your vacation vicissitudes. You certainly traveled around, too. Con-
sidering how tired everyone seemed to be eleven days ago (can it really
be that long since vacation began?) a lot of people had a surprising
amount of ambition. For instance, there were Harriet Sharkey and Jane
Grove who bustled off to W.A.A. Con-
vention. If that wasn't energetic! /
New York Is Popular..
The number of people who made a
bee-line for New York as soon as classes
ceased was amazing. Johnny Baker was
.one of them. Pattie Hadley went to
Washington and then joined Mary Hay-
den in New York and they drove back to Ann Arbor together. Jean Ryerson
and Betty Johnson were sojourning in the big city at the same time.
John Corson had a hitch hiking race which continued to Rochester,
New York (why quit there, John, were you tired?) but no one seems to
know whether he won. Bob Darden and Jack Knecht weren't content with
just seeing New York-they toured the whole of the East. Bill Gram trekked
East, too, as did Al Bentley, Jim Monahan, Chuck Dillman and Wheaton
Can't Be Michigan Weather. ..
Florida came in for its full share of Ann Arborites, too. So don't be
surprised if you see a lot of sun-tanned individuals
striding across campus. Ried Cramer and Bob Fow-
ler went down to bask in the sun. Practically all 19 $
of the Phi Psi house toured down there, too, among
them Jim Gunn, Glen Robinson,' and Ed McLogan.
Eleanor Donahue and Leona Hendreson stayed in
Coral Gables and had "the most wonderful. time!"
Barbara Rogers hopped southward, also, as far
as Lexington, Kentucky, where she saw the races
(hope lady luck was with you, Barb). And Doris Merker and Betty Ann
Chaufty stayed in New Orleans. Betty Ferriss is another who should have
a southern accent now, since she took a trip down to Birmingham, Alabama.
Visited In Chicago .. ,
Chicago-bound were Eleanor Lobban, Lois Longan
{ yand Jane Griswold to visit Clara Louise Fulde,
Mary Rodger, and (Daily
member). Also visiting in Chicago was Anne Winters,
who stayed with Pat Nahser, and Helen Jean was
seen wandering around that city taking in the sights.
Margot Thom and Mary Alice McAndrew took a
trip to Annapolis (you lucky girls!). And Joan Hamil-
ton stayed right here in Ann Arbor, but she wasn't
exactly bored because she was busy getting in her
flying hours for C.A.A. No vacation is complete
without some tragic tale of woe-consider the sad
case of Peg Seabright, who bought a beautiful new
spring outfit, and had it stolen on the way back to Ann Arbor.
