bInrod ucing Aggie C0w:
The curse of "Four Out of Five"
which has dogged the Michigan
woman's footstepsreven since some
bright football hero let it drop, has7
begun to take a noticeable effect in
the clothes which we are gradually
substituting for those poor old "low
heels and baggy sweaters." The
metamorphosis has been slow, but'
we are receiving encouragement as
campus styles all over the United
States are changing.
If enterprising merchants can
sell fur coats in August, shorts
and chambrays in January, and
velvets are "out" in December,
there should be no objection to
rushing the season with a little
speculation on probable style
trends for colleges in general and
Michigan in particular. Designers
and buyers are way ahead of con-
sumers in determining styles for
::ix months from now, and ideas

adopted baby bonnets which cover
the ears and tie under the chin as a
more flattering alternate, and I feel
sure that their example is going to
be followed next fall. The only simi-
larity they bear to those little things
you wore in your cradle days is in
style, because the colors are bright
and peasanty. All sorts of individua
touches can be added such as yarr
and fur pompoms, or detachablf
bows that sit right up on top.
No bandanna in the world could
eflace a sturdy Sou'wester when
one of Ann Arbor's six-months'
rainy seaons set in, and it should-
n't take the campus any longer to
accept this answer to a maiden's
prayer than it did to. adopt the
rubber boot craze. As soon as khe
fad catches on, it should be easy
to get the hats in any color de-
sired, to match or contrast with
your raincoat or boots.
Although this is just one woman's
idea, I wouldn't be surprised to see
the imaginative designers who have
used yarn, sailcloth, fur, both white
and dyed, and even leather boxing-
gloves, in their creations of mittens,
seize on to the faithful old furnace
glove as a possibility for next year.
Of course, the bulkiness would be
cut down, but the room, the warmth
and the original style would fit very
well into the college picture where
novelty is the spice of life.

smoothly. For the lively points of a

The dear old snap brim is about to
be converted into cotton stripe now
that the weather's turned. And straws
will start being piped in-- you
