To Be Staged
At Field House
Tea a 4rtn, Coke' Bar
T B, Added Features
Of Annual Local Event
Traditional home of Michigan
sprts, Yost Field House will under-
go a brief but radical change next
week when the Ann Arbor Flower
Show bursts into bloom on Saturday,
June 1. An annual event, the show
will be held from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.,
June 1 through June 3.
Visitors, for whom tables have been
arranged in a tea garden, will have
a full view of the 22 gardens ar-
ranged around the modernistic pool
and fountain. The gardens are to
be designed and built by individual
citizens and social organizations of
Ann Arbor. Their functions, other
than beauty, are to offer suggestions
and ideas in landscape design and
plant material. Supervision of all
the gardens and display is under the
direction of George G. Ross, profes-
sor of Landscape and Architecture.
To Have Coke Bar
lowing to popular demand, a
"coke" bar, to be backed by a color-
ful mural, will be a feature of the
otherwise sedate tea garden. The
meals for the show will be served
by the Union.
Aside from the general floral dis-
play on the main floor, there will be
a balcony which will house a garden
library, a photography exhibit, a
scientific exhibit and an exhibit of
landscape architecture. Visitors will
also find seats here from which
vantage they may watch the entire
Displays May Be Bought

Stripes Ar $ mart
Molded stripes can work miracles
for the not-too-perfect figure. The
ones shown on the jacket of this
dress combine with the vertical
rows of buttons to give the illusion
of the new long "torso" silhouette.
Add padded shoulders and a scien-
tifivally draped hip-line, and the
result is the tall slim figure any
college girl envies. The diagonal
stripes of the skirt break the mon-
otony and flatter the wearer.

"Best of all in America I like the
informality and up-to-date methods
of living," said John Kantor, Grad,
of Johannesburg, South Africa, yes-
terday in the International Center.
Most surprising, he confessed, is
that the coed dresses just as typically
as their imported movies portrayed
her. Johannesburg college women, as
well as the men, are much more for-
mal in dress.
Kantor came to the United States
in September to obtain his masters
degree in electrical engineering atl
Michigan, after studying for four
year at the University of Witwaters-
rand in Johannesburg.
Talks Of War
Asked about the war situation and
how it affected his country, Kantor
replied, "Naturally, I want the Bri-
tish to win." Soon after the war
was declared last September, he re-
marked, a bill brought up in the the
South African Parliament to remain
neutral was defeated by a small ma-
jority, which showed that sentiments
at that time were not completely in
favor of pledging support to the em-

by the Parliament which now gives

Door-Signs In Women's Dorm
Give Key To Occupants' Moods

Two-Piece Cottons
In Printed Designs
Liven Exam Time
Two-pieced cotton dresses, espe-
cially in stripes or flowered prints
with quilted jackets, serve for many
a varied purpose.
First of all, such dresses with full
dirndl skirts, are attractive to wear
at any price. They fit in the campus
scene, picnics or informal dates, and
there's nothing better to make you
look fresh and delicate than a candy
stripe in white and red or blue.
There')s no reason, however, to
wear them in just one way. Separate
them, and you have a million other
uses. The skirts will compliment a
white blouse, whether prim, frilly
or tailored, or can be worn with a
white suit coat with a scarf of the
same color as the skirt to fill out
the neckline. In summer, they will
combine well with halter tops.
The jacket has as many uses. It
can be used over other dresses, or
with white skirts. One of the most
ingenious ideas for these are to wear
them, zipped up close to your neck,
over white cotton formals. It lends
a new and colorful air to an other-
wise plain evening dress.

Door-signs ranging from warnings
to welcomes on the doors of Mosher-
Jordan rooms bear witness to the fact
that Mosher-Jordan is either the
most forward or the unfriendliest dor-
mitory on the campus.
Men are especially welcome on the
upper floors of both houses, if signs
read true, for their are several read-
ing: "Furnished or Sleeping Rooms
for Boys" scattered through the dorm-
itory. Also "Do Not Disturb" signs
lifted from various hotels and "Quiet"
and "Have You Forgotten Any Per-
sonal Property?", signs of which the
Pullman company were relieved, were
very much in evidence.
Advice Is Offered
Advice to the Love-lorn and Be-
wildered naidens is offered on the
third floor of Jordan, while a Wild-
Life Sanctuary is to be found on the
fifth floor of Mosher.
Jitterbug dancing is forbidden on
one of the Mosher corridors while an
announcement of genius reading:
"Silence, genius at work" with the
compliments of Ulrich's book store, is
to be found on Jordan's third floor.
"Danger-Do Not Enter -This
place is being fumigated with a pois-
onous gas and must not be entered
except by fumigator until this card
is removed. By Order of the Board
of Health," speaks for itself, while
a request: "Help Prevent Forest Fires
-Don't throw tobacco out of win-
dows" is furthering the progress of
Warnings Are Given
"Danger-Soft Shoulders-Watch
Out for fallen rock" points out a par-
ticularly rough spot, while a series of
signs on the life of the fiend was dis-

played on one of the Jordan doors.
This fiend from the latest report of
its keeper "breathes fire, wears pants,
carries concealed weapons on her per-
son and proves, as always, that the
female of the species is deadlier than
the male."
"Death be to those who defy this
warning-when once the solitude and
quiet of the fiend is disturbed-there's
no predicting what may happen-
You already know from previous an-
nouncement of the behavior of the
fiend-but be warned again-Her
habits are very queer-she growls,
hisses or bites at the slightest provo-
cation-Right now is in insane mood
and insists on sitting at desk with
book in front of her-Enter At Your
Own Risk--We will not be responsible
for damages-Our advice is to keep
your distance-Feeding peanuts will
not help-"
And so go the signs of Mosher-Jor-
dan-but don't believe everything you
