To Be Modern
Formal Design
End Panels Will Achieve
New Sunburst Effect
By Revolving Spotlights.
Decorations for the 1941 J-Hop
will carry out the central theme of
a modern formal, employing a sun-
burst motif in pastel shades of green
and wine, William Harrison, '41,
decorations chairman ,announced yes-
The design as a whole is formal
anc modern with relief supplied by
the end panels. These panels will
create the sunburst effect by using re-
volving spotlights which will play on
pastel shades of wine. The center-
piece has also been designed to simu-
late a sunburst when spotlights will
be thrown on its sparkling surface.
Large figures will be thereby thrown
into silhouette on the walls.
The ceiling treatment consists of
a center panel which will be illum-
inated by cove lighting producing an
indirect glow. This panel will be
flanked by draped green sateen ex-
tending out to a valance and con-
nebting with the ceiling of the fra-
ternity booths.
The booths will be draped with
bands of horizontal and varying
shades of pastel green satin. The
columns which separate each booth
have been worked out in a modern-
istic design. Behind the grill work
lights have been placed. The band
stands will be placed diagonally from
each other on either side of the floor.
Programs will also be carried out
in the same color scheme, their being
green and gold with the coat of arms
printed on them. Favors will be
given to both the men and the women.
For the women there will be dull
gold pins shaped like the University
of Michigan coat of arms. The pins
will be the large type that can be
worn at the necklines of sweaters and
shirts, Janet ibley, favors chairman,
explained. The men will receive gold
key rings with the coat of arms on
one side and "1941 J-Hop" on the
other. The committee is using the

Fshion, Like
World History
Rep eats lItselff
So you say your dress is the new-
est thing! There's the saying that
there is nothing new under the sun'
and by a comparison of our styles
and those of the 1920's, we must agree
with the soothsayers.
Our pencil slim skirts were "just
the thing" froi 1920 till about 1928.
The small, modified bustle of today
could easily be found on those dresses
in the attic. .So could the gold em-
broidered gowns seen so'often at the
important affairs of today. At pres-
ent we are enlphasizing the smartness
of the low waist line, but the genera-
tion before -us wore this, style and dis-
carded 'tib6tit 15 years ago.
Now for skirts and blouses. We
certainly think we have something
new there but "Ah,"-peek at those
1920 style books. What do you see?
That's what we thought-skirts and
blouses were "the thing." Coat dress-
es were as good then as now as was
the princess style dress.
Muffs for formal then were favor-
ites and ribbon and net for formals
stood in the spotlight as they do to-
In only one way can we claim to
"have it over" our earlier sisters-our
clothes encourage feminine figures
while theirs emphasized only the boy-
ish silhouette.
Thes are only -a few of the numer-
ous ways in which our clothes com-
pare with theirs, but the next time
you buy a new creation try tiptoeing
up to the attic.
Marriage Is Announced
Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Lewis of Ann
Arbor announce the marriage of their
daughter, Mary Jane, to Robert 0.

Thomas was president of Sigma Chi

Michigan students may huddle in
sorrowful groups and wail over their
difficulties in getting tickets to J-
Hop, but, according to Eleanor Hana-
van, '41, underclassmen at Smith
College must go through an even more
punitive procedure to attend Junior-
Senior Prom, Sniith's big social event
of the year.
Technically, only junior and senior
women are allowed to attend that
dance, but any freshman or sopho-
more asked by an upperclassman to
serve as a "runner" for the weekend
may also attend-but without a date,
Miss Hanavan, who is a transfer to
the University from Smith, explained.
At the Prom, "runners" are a priv-
ileged lot, Miss Hanavan said, for they
may "cut in" as often and as many
times as they like. Before the dance,
however, "runners" must attend to
all the tiresome details that the
junior or senior would rather not
do. Duties include pressing clothes,
making beds, .running errands and
a variety of other miscellaneous tasks,
Miss Hanavan stated.
Smith women date Amherst men
more than any others, but mostly
because Amherst is only seven miles
fron th college, Miss Hanavan de-
clared. At the big dances, however,
she continued, Dartmouth men are
most in prominence, with the Yale
representation coming in second.
Dating for the big dances is an ex-

Santa Rosa Marbles
Resemble Cold Beef
Most history students are so en-
grossed in their books that they do
not realize they can get a much bet-
ter perspective of the past by visiting
the Archeology Museum, which,. for
your information is across the street
from Angell Hall and right next door
to Helen Newberry Residence.
In the foyer a case of various kinds
of marble will give one an idea of
what the Romans made their bath.
One Santa Rosa marble, which can
be easily recognized by its- unfailing
likeness to cold roast beef, must have
been chosen to give the gluttonous
Romans an appetite to resume their
pastime of eating.
