Again Popular Fashion
With Changed Version
When that four o'clock shadow
falls across the field and there are
only two minutes left of play, it's
the girl in the fur coat who still
thinks the game is a good one and
who doesn't give a hoot for the Ann
Arbor weather.
Back in those dear, dead days when
mother was a girl, fur coats had one
purpose-warmth. Today we have
discovered that it is just as easy to
be beaut'iful and practical at the
same time.
Furs To The Front
Furs can be fun-and not only
expensive fun. In these days when
no one cares whether a dress is pure
silk or not-so-pure rayon, and syn-
thetic fabrics are IN, furs, too, are
having their fling. Muskrat mas-
querades as mink, opossum looks like
skunk, and skunk has been known
to impersonate sable, baum marten,
and blue fox. Even the lowly rabbit
has achieved a new glory in the form
of mouton.
Leopard, formerly considered as
strictly sport wear, is this year's
glamour girl of the 'furs. It still is
the perfect foil for bright wool dress-
es, but the new coats with their dress-
maker lines look equally well over
dressy clothes and evening gowns.
Have you seen the hats, gloves,
shoes, and umbrella handles trimmed
in leopard?
A Raccoon Here To Stay
Maybe the rah-rah college days
have returned to haunt us and may-
be they haven't, we won't argue that
point. But all the same, the -raccoon
coat is here again. The 1939 version
however, would scarcely be recog-
nized by its fraternity. brothers of
the Jazz Age-it's, the most remark-
able product , that the fur industry
has turned out thus far. Only the
black and silvery furs are used, and
the skins are worked in fairly nar-
row bands, so that the result re-
sembles silver fox more closely than
it does the old-fashioned raccoon.
For real warmth and sturdiness
beaver, Alaska sealskin, Persian lamb
and our own wolverine are tops.

fur and one of the smartest coats
is bound in leather.
"Chubbies" comprise one of the
most important of the new fur
trends. They are usually less ex-
pensive than the long fur coat, and
still have a look of luxury. Lynx,
with its beautiful cream and reddish
brown shading, makes a lovely fur
jacket. Guanaco, beaver, and all the
varieties of fox are also good.
Squirrel Coats Are Warm
Its silky fur and eye-catching soft-
ness make squirrel another one of
the less expensive coats with the ex-
travagant air. It is extremely light-
weight and very warm, but unfor-
tunately it is equally perishable. Not
a knock-around coat.
Fur evening wraps are always in
fashion-it's just a question of how
the styles change from year to year.
A fur coat purely for evening is be-
yond the budget means of most col-
lege girls, but if you want to ex-
perience a few jealous pangs just
take a look at a white fox wrap-
the skins are mounted separately on
black velvet.
To come down to earth and Ann
Arbor again, most fur coats or fur
jackets can be used for both daytime
wear and over evening gowns. (This
should be a good selling point for
the family.) i
Designers Discover Fur
As Sweater Trimming
Fur on sweaters is the newest use
designers have found for that lux-
urious material. Shown in New York,
these sweaters zip up the front and
are knitted of fine wool and rayon
yarns. Each sweater comes with a
clever little fur-clad hat to match.
One model is a soft green wool
trimmed with mouton, and another
shows caracul fur on a bright red

Reasonable Is The Word
Now, not being redundant, or even
attempting to revive the old issue
that men always use to deride most
fashions de mode; above all, when
you look to new whims and new de-
signs, pause and take' stock. Is it,
to even a slight degree reasonable?
If it isn't, then do enough others
'think enough of it to adopt it? It is
hard to draw the line, but too indi-
vidualistic or too far ahead of the
times, even if it is Scniap or Moly-
neux, may be too r'ediculous.
But never fear, Michigan women,
and this is addressed to you. You're
not too far ahead of the times. Thank
God, you have sensibility, but limit
it to the' classroom. Even dates to
the Bell call for more than a sweater-
skirt-saddle shoe outfit, if you still
have saddle sljoes, and we under-
stand they're out.

Make Fashion Moderate
Moderation, they- say, is the es-
sence of something or other, and the
same applies to fashion. If you will
go enthusiastic for some of the new
whimsies, go it easy and one at a
time. Two at the most but never
ruffles, pleats, draping, etc., all on
a single dress to take one example.
It might be well, before closing this
Michigan men's salvo, to point out
to those uninitiated who are new on
campus, that the biggest drawback
to hats is also lack of moderation.
Simplicity on the chapeau, and you
have something really attractive.
Simple Neckwear
Banishes Scarves
Two years ago the freshman'si
dresser drawers were cranuned to
the hilt with bright scarves (three-
cornered), novelty belts, and old pins.
Today we find an indispensable
string of pearls, one heavy silver
necklace, a complete dirth of belts
(witness the baggy effect), and a
stray pin or two.
Transplanted from neck-utility to
use as rain-kerchiefs, the scarf can
still be found in dark corners of the
closet or stuffed in stray pockets-a
sad come-down for the popular neck-
erchief of yesteryear. But sadder
still is the fate of the belt. Our
beltless state may hint at the non-
existent waist of the late '20's, but
the hint is vehemently denied.

,''o the Editor:
I come to you in desperation and
particularly in srch of advice. Ever
since I was a freshman, I have had
one ambition-I want to be a BWOC.
And now that I am a senior I am
beginning to\ realize that I am not,,
-and have no chance of becoming one.
What shall I do, Editer, what shall
I do?
It is not that I have just sat back
and waited for my dream to come
true. I ,have worked hard to achieve
this status-but in vain.
No function of the League has been
carried off in many a year -without
the benefit of my assistance. I have
carried posters around campus for
every publicity committee that has
ever existed, I am continually sell-
ing tickets for something or other,;
and many a rainy day has found me
staunch at my post selling subscrip-
tions to The Daily. But when it
comes to the big positions, alas, some-
one always beats me to it.
In other ways, too, I have tried to
act like a B WOC. My skirts and
sweaters are as sloppy as the rest,
'and I wear saddle shoes and ankle
socks even though they don't do a
thiig for my legs. I cut classes and
spend the time I should be using for
study in all night bull sessions and
bridge games. Four years have found
me spending the socially right two
hours a day in the Parrot-and as
yet no one screams "Hello" madly
at me when I walk in. No one begs
me to make a fourth for bridge. I
am a failure.
I don't think my case is one for
Dorothy Dix, as I am not without
dates. It's just that I don't know
the right people I guess. I spend
my Friday nights in a movie watch-
ing black and white glamour girls,
while the other girls, the important
ones, are drinking beer in the P-Bell
surrounded by noise and other BIG
Please help me, editor. Do you
suppose that there is something in-
tangible that goes into the make-up
of a BWOC that is lacking in me?
Depressingly yours,
