Architecture I
Student Body
To Hold Mixer
All Members Of School Invited
To Meet Informally In Union
For Annual Gathering TodayI
William Harrison, '41A, will intro-
duce the faculty to the student body
as they meet informally at the an-
nual college of architecture mixer'
from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. today in
the Union Terrace Room.
Jean Rananhan, '43A, social chair-
man of the Architectural Council,
heads the affair 'which is sponsored
to provide the oportunity for stu-
dents and faculty. to mingle in the
informal atmosphere of a social gath-
ering. The Council, which each year
sponsors the mixer, is the governing
body of the college.
Radio and record music; plus re-
freshments, will be included in the
evening's entertainment, while th
program will consist mostly of in-
formal discussion among those- at-
The annual mixer is known to be
one of the few social events in which
students may meet and talk with
their professors without that usual
classroom formality.
In keeping with the informal key-
note of the affair will be the casual
clothes worn by those attending.
Admission will be free; all members
of the college will be welcomed.
Diseuse Avoids
All Interviews
Ruth Draper Receives Publicity
By Actions Rather Than Words
"No interviews whatsoever" is the
unbroken rule by which Ruth Draper,
diseuse, keeps her privacy intact;
only facts related to her work may
appear in heW""OH-ups.
Few artists are able to live up to a
rule as strict as this one. Many may
start out with a similar idea in mind,
but human nature is usually strong-
er, aid interviews find their way
into print.
The strength of character exhibit-
ed in this rule has become apparent
in other situations. For example,
she always- 'writes the character
sketches which she presents in the
form of miniature dramas. Once
this practice obliged her to reject,
unhappily enough, a piece written
especially for her by Henry James.
For years she has been urged to
appear in talking pictures, which
most artists d at some time or an-
other, if halfway presentable-looking.
But the strong-minded Miss Draper
refused, for she feels that the mech-
anism destroys any subtle voice ef-
Radio has suffered 'the same fate.
Her sketches make frequent use of
pauses, which would leave blank
spaces on the program, and to change
them would not suit Miss Draper.
Another reason is, of course, that
the characterizations must be seen
to be fully appreciated. Television
has its fingers crossed.
The personality of Miss Draper
would seem as unique as her particu-
lar type of writing-acting is. She
will appear here as a scheduled lec-
turer Oct. 29 in Hill Auditorium.
Committee To Meet
A meeting of the decorations com-
mittee for Sophomore Cabaret will
be held at 4:30 p.m. today in the
Suite Kitchenette of they League,
Peggy Ihling, '43, chairman of the
decorations committee, announced.

Details of the outfit are all-im-
portant, and it is by them that a
really well dressed person can be
noted. Designers earn their living
by creating pretty dresses, but wear-
ers of these dresses then have to
add just the right touch of distinc-
tion with a hat, gloves or jewelry.
If a college girl should take down
her hair, and confess, she would
admit that often she overlooks the
little things. On goes a date dress,
Sbut who stops to think that a com-
pleting note could be struck by a
little hat, or Miss Co-ed slips into
skirt, sweater and reversible with
no thought of how neat a pair of
pigskin gloves could make the out-
fit look.
It's not that most Michigan co-eds
don't have pretty details, so out they
should come. If you plan to wear
a yellow sweater tomorrow, think of
how nicely a lace-trimmed or em-
broidered white collar would look.
If you have a gold chain bracelet.
it'll be at its best when worn with
yellow, so add it. Your costume will
be above average.
Since most people get their ank-
lets to match sweaters, why not
get them to match with skirts, or
even hairbows. Think of a dark
blue sweater and light blue skirt,
with light blue anklets. Isn't it
more striking than if worn with
dark anklets? With a good looking
beige wool school dress, wear pink
hairbow and pink anklets.
Hats, in recent years, have become
a bone of contention on the Mich-
igan campus. In a way it's too bad,
yet in a way, one should be glad, be-
cause since many are dubious about
them, those who do wear hats are
doing something distinctive. An or-
dinary brown skirt and tan sweater
outfit can become quite glowing when
a brown snap brim completes it. In
the same way, the familiar black
velvet frock is a new thing if a hat
goes with it.
One thing is sure., Hats are not
out of place! For the classic roller,
this is almost completely accepted.
But for date hats, the acceptance
is not very whole-hearted, and so
those who use their heads for both
brain and beauty are even more
advanced.. They choose little hats
that really aren't at all conspicuous
in themselves, but serve as a uni-
fying center for a date outfit that
To return to a certain black velvet
dress. it has been seen a lot in Ann
Arbor but noticed especially on one.
That one wore with it a velvet hat,
also black, with a heart-shaped bon-
net brim. Another suggestion for a
velvet bonnet includes a rolled pleat.

To leave velvet, the pillbox, by
changing position on the head, has
taken on new hat importance. Now
it nestles on the back of the head,
and, from the front, is partially

Another fashion detail that has
fallen into disuse is the scarf. It
came startlingly back last week in a
streak of cold weather, when the
owner of a grey coat filled out the
neckline withra royal blue knitted
scarf. The coat was just a coat, but
the outfit as a whole was favorably
