Professor Brumm has announced

Enter the first all-campus form-
als! Many scheduled for this weekend
are to put new da h to this Untvcr-
sity life that we've ahealy becom
accustomed to since the sunimer of
1940 is past history. A few private
%artns last week-end served to her-
ald what is to come.
At these preliminary parties one
was ablo to see what college women
i ked of the new fa ons ,and what
they chese to keep of the old. There
are many ideas, too, that American
designers have put forth for us
but that haven't had time to show
themselves and all this must be
temrercd by the knowledge of what
general trend this campus has al-
ways followed.
It seems that college women have
enthusiastically received the "cover
up" mode. It makes them feel more
comfortable, and the gaity and in-
formality that is necesary for fun
even at a formal occasion naturally
accompany comfort. Perhaps for this
reason Ann Arbor has always leaned
heavily upon the most casual of
evening clothes, so it is no small won-
der that hearty endorsement is given
this new style.
If you wear your sleeves just
above the elbow, just below or even
to your wrist, there is no doubt that
you'll be in keeping with the crowd.
Sleeves offer a vast amount of orig-
inal notes that may be struck while
still wearing the same type as oth-
ers do. Various tuckings or gather-
ings, as well as bead decorations
serve to singularize them.
The fuller the skirt, the better -
in spite of the words 9f New York
designers concerning the sheath sil-
houette. Conservative draping is def-
initely right, but when it becomes
extreme enough to lift in front to
give the effect of a split showing the
ankle, it has become taboo.
The "cover up" mode" is a conserv-
ative one, but when novelties become
radical, you may be sure they will
not be accepted. So such ideas as
draping should be kept in check.
There are others, and the bare mid-
rif is an example. It was not too well
received last spring and there is lit-
tle indication that this has changed,
so one should tread carefully with
such a style.
All this talk about sleeves and high
necklines must not lave the impres-
sicn that decollete is not accepted, for
it definitely is. Sleeveless and strap-
less formals have their place here, of
course. Especially for the bigger
dances, when the atmosphere is more
formal than at house dances, they
show off at best advantage.
In Washington, D. C. - not New
York or Paris this time - there is a
designer who does lovely work that is
very adaptable to the University
wardrobe. Her name is Jane Derby.
Her theme is feminity, but she does
not create in a frilly way. Deep ber-
thals and original petticoats under
lace frocks are among her tricks, and
they combine well with her love for
color. Also she has cleverly incorpo-
rated the revealing with the covered
that the topic of his talk will be
closely associated with the theme of
the banquet, which may be interpret-
ed as meaning "laissez-faire." Feat-
ures of the evening include the tap-
ping of six new members by Senior
Society, and the awarding of schol-
arship and activities awards.

look. An example is a black lace
strapless formal which includes a
lace hood that continues to drop over
the shoulder nearly to the elbows.
One can be much more original
with hair-do's while in formal garb
but even here extreme and complicat-
ed fashion is not the best taste. One
thing that has become more popu-
lar this year than last is gadgets for
the hair. Revival of metal, especially
silver in all types of jewelry has
extended to hair clips. Large silver
flowers show up in a flattering way
in all colors of hair, particularly
black and brown.
Feathers are so becoming to eve-
ring hair-do's if the wearer doesn't
abuse her new license. As feathers
get bigger and longer on snap brims
so they may become for formal ac-
cessories, but right now they're com-
raritively small. Some have just a
few, died the color of the evening
dress, and placed in a single cluster.
At times, they are worn as small
wings on each side.
Best dressed coed this week is Bev-
erly Bracken, '41, attired in a red silk
jersey formal. Her brigand belt and
bracelets ,and the heavy chain neck-
lace are of silver. She crowns her
outfit with red feathers in her hair.
Note the successfully casual use of
draping in the frock.
