Umbrellas Return
With Gayer Colors
Umbrellas are back! Figured, plain
or sheer, they conspire a brilliant
vengeance for their long hibernation.
Bright and light colors, or matching
ensembles with coats offer as gay
a damp weather protection for curls
as the flowered bandana which sent
them into the dark.
More and more umbrellas have
been springing up along the diagonal
like mushrooms in the spring rains,
and they nay offer a new parking
problem in classrooms.

Reigns Here
In Summer
So you're going to summer school!t
You may be rather bitter that this
summer, instead of merely having
to decide whether to go swimming
with the crowd or relax and keep
cool, you're going to have to slave
over a hot desk all day. However,
if you listen to some of the comments
of former summer schoolers, they
might cheer you up considerably.
If you like informality plus, along
with your education, you'll probably
like Ann Arbor in the summer, be-
cause shorts and slacis are the style-
setters.In the way of sports, there's
canoeing, tennis, and riding, both
horseback and bike. Tea dances are
held quite often, plus regular dances
at the League, and there is usually a
reception for all the students during
the first week.
From all reports, the campus is
quite beautiful during the summer
months. One young lady went so far
as to say that summer school seemed
almost like a resort to her. Another
expression used in describing it 'was

many of the students are from dif-

The main drawback seemed to be
the heat. According to reports the
League and the local theatres are
the coolest places in the afternoon,
unless you can find some way down
to the "old swimmin' hole," which,
by the way, is very popular at that
time. Two other complaints are
the seven and eight o'clock classes,
and that there are too many grad
students and older people around.
However, one definite academic ad-
vantage is that it's easy to get the
courses you want, and when you want

people have liked it, there's more
