To the Editor:
There is quite a bit of difference
between the clothes worn on the
California campuses and this one.
The weather probably has a great
deal to do with it, but there is one
other determnining factor, and that
is comfort.
Clothes on the Cal campus are
very casual and very comfortable. The
girls wear the same sweaters and
skirts and the same saddle shoes that
you find on any campus. They never
wear long stockings, no matter how
cold it is, and they scorn hats, even
when it rains. Cotton and linen
dresses are worn all year. Dirndls
were very popular last year, and
modified editions of the beer jacket
are still going strong.
Ties Are Not Worn
The men are much more casual
than the women, most of them stick-
ing to slacks and sweaters, no shirts
and no ties. If a man on campus is
wearing a tie, he is either one of the
faculty or a tourist.
It is on weekend dates that the Cal
girl shines. No matter where she
goes, to a show or dancing, she is
expected to turn up with an outfit
complete with hat and gloves, and
she usually gets a corsage to go
with it.
On formal dates there is only one
difference between the Cal girls and
the Michigan girls. At Cal, every
girl wants to look as much like a
Hollywood glamour queen as pos-
sible, and you don't see any of those
modest little numbers with high
necks, sleeves, or ruffles. Tie men
are different on formal dates too.
Not one of them would be caught
dead with a tail coat, a dinner jacket,
or a white dinner coat.

To the Editor:
Having graduated from Vassar
College last June I have been asked
many times 8bout the difference be-
tween Michigan and my former Al-
ma Mater.. The only time that the
Vassar campus ever resembles Mich-

igan's is on the weekend of our Junior
The Vassar girl feels that, since
there isn't any inspiring-ahem-
atmosphere at the college, she can
let down her hair and really be com-
fortable. Therefore, she puts on the
sloppiest outfit she can find-dirty
saddleshoes (if you have clean white
ones, you are considered unfashion-
able), socks (but no stockings even
in the icy gales), and expensive, but
much abused sweaters whose sleeves
have been pushed up until they have
no shape at all. She never wears a
If the cardigan was made to button
down the front, she will have it but-
ton down the back. Her hair droops
uncurled, - and her nose is always
shiny. On rainy days she loves to
astound her classmates by appearing
in a long sinister hooded cape or a
Mexican sombrero.
But on weekends she really turns
into a glamor girl. All those smart
New York clothes are taken from
the closet; her hair is waved; and off
she trots to West Point,; to the Wil-
liams houseparties, or to the Dart-
nouth Carnival.
The Michigan girl is much bettr
groomed. She certainly is n
"dressy," but she is usually neat. She
wears makeup to class. Her hair
looks under control, and not as if
the wild man of Borneo had arrived
on campus by mistake. She takes
better care of her clothes. She would
rather wear what everyone else is
wearing than be conspicuous.
