Well, spring, are you coming in or
not? We can't continue to keep an
open mind about whether to feel
like spring or like winter! So no mat-
ter what the weather, let's create the
illusion of warm spring months.
That's the time when flowers come
popping up, and just a bit of snow
appearing on the ground at various
intervals now is all the more reason
why. we should beat the weather man
by decking ourselves out in floral
Buy new artificial flowers if you
wish, but since you must work out
your own original ideas, you would
do as well to tear apart old bou-
quets, For instance, you might
dismount a clusterof small flowers
and sew them along the shoulder
seam in a straight line from collar
to sleeve. This innovation is possi-
ble with the new sloping shoulder
line, but with padded or puffed
sleeves it would be "too much."
Another suggestion is to put a few
flowers on grosgrain ribbon and
strap this to your wrist.
Flowers on ribbon are also the in-
gredients for a half-way hat. Recog-
nizing that, after all, there is a bit
of winter left, better make these hats
of velvet and cover the whole with a
dark veiling. By the way, veiling onj
hats or tulle bows on dresses have an}
ethereal look when they have tiny
flowerettes mixed up, and clinging to
them. Another flower adaptation
that admits of the presen1ce of win-
ter are bright yarn blossoms with
which to decorate a hat. Pin a
matching bouquet to your purse or
Hats are catching the majority'
of flowers now. They're piled up#
over brims or hung from under
them. One lovely example was a
white hyacinth curving under the
brim of a plain black bonnet. And
also you'll enjoy the conventional
way of wearing flowers-either sin-
gle big ones or clusters on the

Engineers To Battle Lawyers
During Annual Dances, April 4

Cries of warfare are expected to
pervade the Michigan campus once
again when the University's engi-
neers and lawyers start forming bat-
tle lines fpr their annual dance feud
which will take place on Friday, April
4, in the Union and League respect-
The two dances mark one of the
three dates every year that sees both
groups in their full fighting trim-
each desiring to show the coeds that
they are not only the true "he-men"
but also the "more romantic."
Clash At Swingout
Engineers and lawyers, incident-
ally, also clash during their spring
athletic contests and at Swingout,
when the barristers are asked to de-
tour around the engine Arch.
The long-standing feud between
the engineers and lawyers began a
good many years ago (nobody knows
the exact date) when the two groups
held classes in the same building.
With the passing of years the spirit
of warfare grew-the spirit which is
usually climaxed with some sort of
conflict on dance night.
For a great many years the engi-
neers' Slide Rule Ball and the bar-
risters' Crease Ball were held on dif-
ferent nights but in 1931 it was de-
cided to make the coeds choose be-
tween the two groups more definitely.
The result was the decision to hold
both balls on the same eve.
Began In 1927
In 1927, the year which begins the
modern history of the conflict, the
lawyers stole the eight-foot slide rule
which the engineers were using as
their main decoration. Rumors of
destruction followed but actual strife
was avoided when the rule was re-
turned for the 1928 Slide Rule affair.
It was in that, year, however, that
by means of
A dark, gloomy used car lot not

the engineers retaliated. A party of
them, including two assistant pro-
fessors, attended the Crease Ball via
a heating tunnel, released stink
bombs and tear gas, cut the current
at the power boxes and escaped in
the darkness. The ringleader was
duly expelled.
Spirit Not Lasting
The Michigan Daily on March 27,
1931 had this to say about the two
dances being held on the same night:
"The occurrence on the same night
of the two dances by the former rival
schools is an innovation in the his-
tory of the University and could not.
have been considered a few years ago.
For it is only a few years ago that
each of the dances was inevitably
followed by a raid by the members of
the rival school."
But although the years 1927 and
1928 were filled with conflict, the
spirit was not to last. During the
past five years many secret commit-
tees have been formed in both schools
to plan raids but little has become of

shoulders. They're especially love-
ly pinned to keep in place thej
flounces of a wide white eyelet
pique collar.
The Chinese are influencing us
now to wear flowers in the hair.
The favorite way is to wear them
over each ear. Right now the cluster
should not be too big unless worn
with formals, but it's a safe bet that
this summer you'll be wearing enor-
mous earmuffs of flowers with sim-
ple white sport frocks. For the pres-
ent, try two real red carnations in
your hair the next time you go out.
Lei-length flower necklaces of
plastic material will do a lot for
your dark winter dresses. Or try
putting a few artificial violets on
the cuff or down, the back of black
gowns. New and popular earrings
come in the form of picture frames
with flowers painted within. Or, to
get into the spirit of it, just carry
a handkerchief with bright and
splashy flowers over it.
Charlotte Noble, '43, Best Dressed
fCo-ed of the Week, always wears a
fresh white carnation on the side of
her navy blue grosgrain Dutch cap.
Flowers are appropriate with such a
cap which is inspired by a country
usually abundant in bright flowers,
and is part of the "fashion loyalties"
trend. The low waisted wool dress is
also navy blue.
