,asual Jackets For +chool Or Outings

Unpredictable spring weather necessitates some kind of wrap that
will not be too heavy when the sun shines and yet will afford protection
from cool breezes or sudden showers. Whether the occasion is a class
on campus or a picnic in the woods a plaid lightweight jaeket will fill
this need. Material may be smooth flannel or tweedy wools, and colors
may be chosen to match or contrast with that favorite skirt and
sweater combination.

Just in case any of you folks didn't know, this was a BIG WEEK END
in Ann Arbor. Your correspondent tried to pretend she was a candid
camera and not a human being, but with not much success. What with
so many parties, she go sore feet anyway. Spring (AT LAST!) and a
whole bunch of dances. formals, and picnics arrived right together and
the impact was really terrible..
For instance, there was the formal given by the West Quad Friday.
Betty Erdmann and Jack Emmett, Ann Faden and Jim Spaulding and
Betty Ann Neal and Roger Hayward were absolutely lost in admiration for
the decorations, while Jean Cromwell and Dexter Green, Marian Geerds
and Bob Fife, and Ann Herzog and Tom Poyser gave serious
attention to a little matter of dancing.
od Camera Shots ...
Got a few good candid camera shots of Kay Williams and
Paul Norris, Helen Smith and Ron Chadwick, and Elaine
.Norris and Diiane Parker, who seemed to be enjoying themselves muchly
at Apothecaries' Ball. Got a few more good informal shots a little later
inthe evening at the A.T.O. house where a radio dance was in progress.
E-la Dodge and Mark Meyer, Betty Wibel and Stan Conrad, and Bessie
Trethaway and Johnny Engel were having themselves a time among others
in the gang that was present.
Still later I crept over to the Delt formal just long enough to snap Barb
Clarke dancing with Chuck Buell. And then onward, once again, to the
S.A.E. party where Margaret Saxton and Phelps Hines and Mary Dixon
and Lee Perry stood listening to Helen Rhodes sing (and can she sing!).
Barely Standing Room..
Practically broke my camera at Miami Triad Saturday. Mary Dick
Holcomb and Stewart Moran, Beverly Bracken and
Bob Straub, Jane Vennell and Bill Gram were having
a marvelous time, as were Muriel Hess and Bob Ander-
son and Fran Weiser. Just arriving en masse were
Rae Gustafson and Bill Olson, Milly Thomas and Bob
Sager, Isabel Balfour and Bob Hotchkiss, Helen Jean
Dean and Gene Bowles, and Jane Honey and John Shields.
After that there was barely room left for even my camera, so I escaped
and dashed up to the Hillel formal to see what I could find in the way
of a few good pictures.. And there I observed Joan Sack and Lennie Ober-
man and Rollie Ollesheimer and Sam Pomerantz sipping cokes with great
gusto, while Sunnie Forman and Ted Leibovitz and Barb Ostheimer and
Sheldon Finkelstein glided around, oh so gracefully.
Very Active Fun . ..
Dropped in briefly at the Law Club formal where I just had time to
catch a quick glimpse of Lizz Titus and Peter Cartwright whirling about.
Over at the League in the Delta Sigma Pi party I snapped a couple of good
pictures of Jane Dunbar and Bob Halsted and Betty Ann Armstrong and
Byron Harris.
And then there was the Druid's picnic where there was definitely
active fun going on. Betsy Robinson and Bobby John-
son, Howis Parker and Helen Van Dyke, Jane Connell
and Ed Hutchens, and Kay Cainey and Johnnie "Mint-
worth" Goodell. Got some really good action shots
here. A vigorous game of baseball was noisily in prog-
ess, among other things, and Janie Connell was in dire distress when a
ball came whizing swiftly at her and when it reached her (OUCH!) nei-
ther paused nor turned aside.
Picking up my candid camera, at this point, I wearily wended my way
home with the priceless negatives. And as I went I thought, "Ai spring,
ah Ann Arbor-and oh my blisters."

Dorothy Shipman.
To Wed Former
Michigan Student
The engagement of Dorothy Ship-
man, '40, to Arthur B. Lundahl, '38,
son of Mrs. Marie B. Lundahl of
Moline, Ill., was announced by her
guardian, Mr. E. H. Denney, of Oak
Park, Ill., at dinner last night at
the Pi Beta Phi house.
Miss Shipman has been president
of the League during the past year,
and is a member of Mortar Board
and of Wyvern. During her junior
year she was general chairman of
Junior Girls Play.
Mr. Lundahl is now connected with
the John Deere Plow Works in Mo-
line, and while on campus was presi-
dent of Interfraternity Council and
a member of Michigamua and of
PVayclothes To Be
Theme Of Display
"Playclothes are as much a part
of American life as apple pie," said
Mrs. Grace Skinner, who will con-
duct a fashion show of summer wear-
ables from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. today
in Goodyear's downtown store.
Shirt-and-slack outfits will be
modeled in shantung, gabardine, and
cotton. Three-piece playsuits with
button-on, or tie-on skirt to match
shirt and shorts combinations will
also be shown.

"Spur of the moment" it's "bridle
bits" again for once more the horse
is in his hey-dey and the riders in,
the limelight. With an interesting
and active past behind, and an equal-
ly hopeful future ahead, Crop and
Saddle, University women's riding
club, will sponsor the University's
16th annual Horse Show Saturday,
May 18 at the Fair Grounds.
Back of this show will go long hours
of preparation by the 20 active club
members who are this year planning
a mounted drill and open classes
for University men and women as
well as a demonstration of jumping,
a pair class, and feature game events.
Three ribbons will be awarded in
each exhibition class on the basis
of good horsemanship.
Pegasus Club Formed
Still further in the background, the
history of Crop and Saddle extends
to 1925 when 12 charter members
gained University recognition with
their Pegasus Club. The original
three founders were Gretchen Mulli-
son, '27, now Mrs. Lewis Holland of
Ann Arbor; Elizabeth Nutt, '27, now
Mrs. Nathan Potter III of Ann Arbor,
and Betty King, '26. The group was
then limited to 12 members whose in-
clusion in the club was invitational.
The badge of these Pegasus members
was a small silver horse with a ruby
In 1926, one year after the found-
ing of Pegasus, Crop and Saddle be-
came active on campus, a larger
group with a membership limited to
25 but open to all who could pass
the group's riding requirements. For
two years then, both groups conduct-
ed rides weekly, but throughout this
period, the Horse Shows were still
held in conjunction with the Univer-
sity riding classes. In 1927 eight of
the original twelve members of Peg-
asus were graduating from the Uni-

versity with Master's degrees so, at
this time, their club was abandoned
and Crop and Saddle became the
official University group.
Horse Shows Traditional
Sinco this change, all the Horse
Shows have been traditionally un-
der the auspices of the club. In ad-
dition various members of the group
have represented the club as a whole
in Horse Shows held each year at
Flora Stone Mather College in Cleve-
In the fall of 1937 and again in
1938, two members made the Cleve-
land trip over a weekend to partici-
pate in the activities there under the
sponsorship of their Boot and Saddle
Club. At such times, as these, dis-
cussions on the various schools of
riding were also held, as well as an
interchange of ideas on club composi-
tion, requirements and activities.
Membership in Crop and Saddle
still remains on the basis of tryouts
held in the spring and fall to ascer-
tain the ability of each rider wishing
to join.
