and some of her pieces will be appro-
priate to the theme. Betty Keppler,

speech platform. Programs are to be
given out at the theatre.
The Fashion Fantasy is to be held
at 4:15sp.m.Nov. 7 at the Michigan
Theatre, and there is to be no charge.
Those who wish to may see the early
movie and stay for the fashion show,
but it will be possible to enter the
theatre at 4:15 for only the style dis-

vertising manager of The Daily, ex-
Twenty-seven student models have
been chosen to wear the clothes that
are to be shown by the various Ann

head of the committee of models.
A Man's Eye View
The press-box yesterday afternoon
was an autograph hunters' paradise.
Radiorators Ted Husing, Bill Stern
and Bill Slater (wearing a Roose-
velt button) were there, also Watson
Spoelstra of the AP, John Lardner,
Henry McLemore, Grantland Rice,
and phtographers Sergei Eisenstaadt

It was as masculine as the Union
Opera until two young ladies tried to

The Wolverines were wearing their
blue woolen cardigans with yellow

So far this column for women has
been all about men. But we're sure
you gals prefer it that way.

"I like it," she replied withoutt
hesitation. "I always carry a radio
with me, and listen to it for recrea-
"Do you think jazz has a definite{
place in the musical world?" I asked.
Swing Has Place
"Yes," said Miss Anderson, "I do.
I went to a theatre in New York
whose stage show featured a swing
band a short while ago. I've never
seen people react to music in the
way I saw those people react. They
were 'jitting.' Is that what you call
it? 'Jitting?' If music reaches peo-
ple as that did, it must mean some-
thing to them and therefore it has
a place in the musical world."
The mob once more surged around
her about that time, and we were let
out in the cold again.

Franklin P. Adams, Michigan grad-
uate, author of the Conning Tower
and a star of "Information Please,"
took a "busman's holiday" yesterday
dropping into the Student Publica-
tions Building to' find out how ThE
Daily was getting along.
Accompanied by his son Timothy,
Mr. Adams, or FPA as he likes to be
called, took great pains in avoiding
questions, claiming that he had "too
many to ask himself and no time to
"I don't get around here very often,"
he said, "and when I do come I want
to know what The Daily boys are
doing and how well the principals of
free press, fairness and liberal action
were being upheld." The only infor-
mation he volunteered was that Elli-
ot Maraniss, '40, last year's editorial
director, had received a new position
on the New York Post.
The things FPA was most interested
in, outside of the Ann Arbor news-
papers, were the chances of the foot-
ball team, thie degree to which the
University coed had improved (or
vice-versa) and the way the student
body felt about conscription.
"I'm sort of a newspaperman my-
self," he said as he left, "so just write
up any kind of interview you want to,
quote me as saying anything you like
-and don't leave out my son's name."
