Answering the quips of the Mich-

satirized their male co-students at
the annual presentation of Fresh-
man Project. "Left to right, this

D6ris Kirk, -the gum-chewing switch-
board manager, introduced three

cents in my pocket; what more
could a MICHIGAN MAN want,"
exclaimed one of the masculine trio,
dressed in exaggeration of the usual
campus mode.
Grace Procter, general chairman,
was assisted by her central com-
mittee: Carol Pitcher, Jane Honey,
Barbara Amsbury, Barbara Clarke,
Jeanne Clare, Marcia Dubrucq, Jane
Graham, Barbara Alcorn, Betty
Jane Barnett, Jean Jeffrey. Richard
McKelvey, dramatics director of the

in time to the music of Bill Sawyer,
was composed of Marjorie Nield,
Layne Bennett, Mary Pfender,
Mary Elinore Brown, Jean Ranahan,
Suzanne Nicholson, Sally Laux,
Doris Arner, Lorraine Judson and
Joan Gerrung. Skit roles were taken
by Doris Kirk, Nancy Worrell, Vir-

your toes, gals, be prepared, and
also be comfortable in play suits
and slack suits. The CAMPUS
SHOPPE has all styles-all prices
for you to choose
from. They are real-
ly handsome. For
example, take their
crash slack suits-

there is a point which is well
worth while when picnics are in
order. They also have good look-
ing suits in flannel and cotton.
The play suits feature a number
of styles. One cute trick is of
pretty pink and blue material,
the play suit is a honey and is
covered with a suspender dress
or jumper. Another play suit is
covered with wrap-around skirt-
handy when you are in a hurry.
See them now-don't miss the
