The Nav'...

Navy Blue With White Touches
Sails Again Into Spring Fashion

Bow To Catch A Beau


Navy blue with crisp touches of
white will salute the tulips again this
There are nautical navies like the
sailor suit above. In light weight serge
it nips and flares to a form-fitting
silhouette. Three rows of white braid
mount the wide square collar with
three rousing cheers for the marines
who have set a style as trim as theI
sea winds.
Sailor Suit Is Comfortable
The light wool sailor suit is com-
fortable everywhere, as suitable for
emi-dress occasions as for casual
gatherings. With a brimful sailor

red it goes to town. Under a three-
quarter length corduroy jacket of
signal red it marches off to classes.
But wherever it goes, it stays neat
and fresh looking, with easy-to-press
skirt and a brush-clean color.
More feminine and dressy is the
silk companion. White silk pique
unfolds at the neck with the new low
I casual collar line. The dress itself,
of textured navy blue crepe, is
tucked into rows of tiny pleats for
the waist, and then released from a
tie. belt to drape into a soft skirt
Sleeves Are Gathered
Coverd buttons carry out the
blouse effect of the waist with an
opening that extends to the belt. The
sleeves, not long, not short, but
Iathered just below the elbow sug-
gest the coolness of spring, and the
first hint of warmer weather.
Not as adaptable as the sailor dress,
the tucked silk is however, more
suitable for the Easter parade. It
submits coyly to the most absurd and
colorful hats, and lends itself as a
placid background to spring corsages.
Lace Jabots Are New
And these, of course, are just two
of the navy andcwhite combinations
that spring styles have to offer. Lace
jabots will flounce over plain cut
suits. Lace collars will be the most
dainty and fashionable of trims of
all silk navy blue. Semi-sheer and
pleated navies will take plain white
edging, or white pique flowers at the
neck. But wherever the navy goes,
there will be flecks of white like foam
at the neck.

Alas and alack the weekend's past,
And though' we hate to admit, it's left us aghast.
The social whirl nearly came to a stop,
And the date situation was almost a flop.
And so for news we follow the faculty members around, to see just how
they spend their weekend vacation. This last weekend began
Thursday with a roller skating party at one of the well known
rinks. While Mrs. Baum was learning to skate backwards,
Mr. Bernard Baum, Mr. and Mrs. Fred White, Milton Hall-
* . iday and Harry Garvin watched.
\k acu y . A itte d s Dance ...
Attending the Assembly Ball and dancing around with
the students were Dr. and Mrs. Frederic O. Crandall, Mr. and Mrs. Mentor
Williams. Mr. John Weimer and Prof. William Halstead attended the Hillek
play the other night. And right now we can't help mentioning Prof. and
Mrs. Waldo Abbott who are at present enjoying the warm Florida sun.
=Congratulations on your second place on the Professor Quiz program.)
Mrs. Secord remained home all weekend while her hus-
band spent a busman's holiday.
A general reversal from the regular faculty teas took
place Sunday. Instead of the students entertaining the
faculty, the faculty were entertained at a Friendship tea
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Carlton Wells. Meanwhile
Dr. Frank Marckwardt spent the weekend writing a paper
on dmestic calls to domestic animals. This paper is writ-
ten in connection with his dialect research work.
Initiation Takes Over
As we leave the faculty, we turn the spotlight toward
one of the big student even- of the week in the form of
initiation. Perhaps more interesting than the initiation
is the week previous commonly known as "courtesy week." .
Swimming meets on the living room floor, standing ajar,
and "being a stitch in time" were just a few of the many
things which the pledges had to do. The Gamma Phi
Beta house had a novel idea when they made a few of
their pledges fill the bath tub with water, a glassful at a time. Delta Upsilon
stuck to tradition and had the usual fire practice.
And now for the BIG event-Assembly Ball. Marcia Stern and Mal
Katz; Ruth Pomerance and Julius Friedman; Jean Krise and Jack The
Thompson: Madeiine Levy and Lloyd Purvis; all exclaimed that the musif
was excellent and particular interest was shown in the decorations. Evelyn
Kuivinen was responsible.
Of course, we could go on saying that
f WPatty Walpole and Woody Rankin; Dorothy
Schloss and Gary Chertoff were there but that
would be rather silly.
Books Again Forgotten..
"' ",. \Once again the lawyers forgot their books
" . " -as the members of Tau Epsilon Phi held a
party at the Rackham Building Saturday
night, Herb Kahn and Shirley Singer, as well
S ::... as Hope Robinson and Murry Ropewin were
very much in evidence.
Evidently the faculty didn't hold a monopoly at the play presented
by Hillel because we saw Yale Cozzan and Muriel Schwartz there too.
There has been a terrific uproar heard from several houses lately and
upon investigation we discovered that the women were having their pictures
taken. It seems that the idea is to make each and every one who has her
picture taken a second Hedy Lamarr. Glamour and more glamour is the
