Cet-Aequai iet

What effect is the present Euro-
pean war going to have on American
fashions? This is rapidly becoming
a foremost question in the minds of,
American women. Already buyers
and fashion experts .have been made
aware of the decreasing stock of im-
ported goods in wholesale houses and
of the fact that new orders cannot be
Fortunately- all American women
are not as perplexed about the cause
of this shortage as one misguided in-
dividual, who, after. purchasing to-
matoes at an exhorbitant .war rate;
said in indignation, "You can't tell
me that they are fighting that war
with tomatoes!" Restricted shipping
on the Atlantic, loss due to sunken
ships, the confiscation of factories for
the manufacture of war materials, are
all influencing factors in this phe-
Eastern Materials Needed
The demand for raw. materials for
the manufacturing of war essentials'
not only requires the materials of
Europe; but also. those of the Far
East. This was apparent to buyers
as soon as it became almost impos-
sible to obtain silk lingerie and oth-
er exports from the Orient.
France realizes what it would mean
to her to lose her American markets
and so is attempting to keep those
factories supplying our markets run-
\ MACK'S InC \

ning on normal schedule. However, if
the war goes on, more and more
factories will of necessity be takens
This happened in the last war with
the results that American manufac-'
turers beganto duplicate foreign pro-
ducts. While America in the last few
years has not been, vitally dependent'
upon -Europe for articles of apparel,
we did obtain many of our most1
prized possessions from abroad.
Consult Fashion Experts
To bring this story closer home, we
consulted the fashion representative'
and buyers of one of Ann Arbor's
leading department stores. Here was
revealed the true nature of the short-
age. Women students shopping, for
their coveted Brooks type sweaters
and L'Argyle socks this fall were
warned to buy while there was stock.a
We find that this was no mere ad-:
vertising talk, for very, very scarce if
any is the stock remaining now.
Those lovely hand blocked wool
scarves from Poland are becoming
almost impossible to obtain. Cut-glass
jewelry, pearls and the unbeatable
French gloves, suedes and doeskins,
are also listed as rapidly vanishing
stock which will be. most difficult,
perhaps impossible, to obtain.
While the shortage of French cos-
metics and perfumes has not yet be-
come acute, due to the fact that the
wholesale houses anticipated the
shortage and stocked up, this supply
is limited and is rapidly being sold.
Manufacturers Raise Question
The question here arises as to
whether American women will of
necessity adopt the product of Ameri-
can manufacturers and the styles de-
creed by American designers, or will
there be a tendency for the European
designers and manufacturers to move
their establishments to America for
the duration of the war. As to manu-

facturers there has been nothing to
indicate such plans for the future but
several designers are already coming.
to this country for patrons. One of
these is Bruyere who has scheduled
a fall showing in New York.
Martial trends up .to the present
time .are limited for the most part
to. millinery and ,accessories but de-
signers feel that by' spring war in-
spired simplicity will become domin-
ent in the, whole silhouette. As the
last war .affected fashions. profound--'
ly, ushering in the absurd and tom-
boyish. costumes of the twenties, so
this war will have its effect.
Uniforms To Influence Designs
It is conjectured that the wearing
of uniforms by the majority of Eu-
ropean women will have its influence I
on the design. of American clothes
making them even more severe and
Whether a few foreign designers
come to our country or not, this war
is going to give the American design-
er an opportunity to come to the front
and display their true talents. At
last the local designer is to be given
[credit for his own work. .
American Clothes Gain Prestige
As designers use universal themes
there should be no shortage of in-
spiration in this country and with
New York and Hollywood vying for
the position of fashion center, Ameri-
can fashions should become some-
thing to which American women will
be partial.
To assist in this glorification, for
that is what the local product really
needs, of the American designer, the
women of this country must be pa-
triotic enough to realize and acknowl-
edge the intrinsic value of American
products and transfer their worship
of the Paris creation to one which
bears the more appealing stamp

AFTER MONTHS OF PLANNING, MACK, Inc. are now prepared to present
their "GET-ACQUAINTED SALE," to prove to University students that mer-
chandise from solid, established national firms can be obtained at low prices
