Photography Holds Promise
As An Advancing Profession

Dressed For Tea

Is photography your hobby? ;If
your greatest pride is your camera
creations that you take with thought
to art and originality, then think.
about photography as a profession.
A Michigan woman is the acknowl-
edged leader of the industrial photog-
raphy field, for Margaret Bourke-
White attended the University in the
late twenties. In speaking about the
supply and demand of photography,
Miss Bourke-White discloses that
more advertisers are turning to pho-
tographs instead of artists' sketches.
or watercolors.
Industries Seek Photographers
Besides direct advertising in pic-
tures, Miss Bourke-White finds that
many opportunities for the job-seeker
lie in the photographing of industry
which is the field in which she, at the
age of 35, has made an outstanding
reputation. It involves the telling of
the story of an industry for the con-
sumer. "Many industries," she in-
forms, "have conceived the idea of
selling their institution to the public
in a promotional way rather than ad-

vertising their product more directly."
A metropolitan magazine which ca-
ters to the women of college age re-
veals that in photography "fashion
work is a booming field. If a large
magazine or store takes your work,
you're made," it encouragingly reports
to the gal with a camera eye.
Gardens Offer Opportunities
Jessie Tarbox Beals, garden pho-
tographer from Chicago, states that
her specialty field through garden
clubs is "opening up new avenues of
business to anyone alert enough to
go after them." She comments that
with all the opportunities at hand,
few men or women are specialists in
this line.
These experts of photography agree
that a taste for color, ingenuity, com-
position and a certain dramatic sense
is essential for success. All advise
that rudiments of technique be ob-
tained at a school of photography or
through a studio apprenticeship. Fin-
ancial returns are variable according
to the type of work done but oppor-
tunity for advancement was stressed.
Progress, as Miss Bourke-White says,
"depends not only on energy and
skill, but also on the amount of
business ability the photographer may

To College Me From Co-eds.. .
There is no typical Michigan man, but here is a generalized composite.
He is better dressed than most college men, wears tweeds, to the joy of
co-eds. and gabardine pork-pies, to their dismay.
This week "The Feather" dedicates itself to a discussion of men's
clothes. Comments here included come from every feminine corner of
the campus. Although there are a few scowls, it's mostly a mass of com-
plinerts which, it must be said, is a bit of a contrast from what men
have to say about women's clothes.
N) one passed up the chance to laud all-tweed suits, of which there
re naVimnv here, nid sport jackets worn with plain trousers got their full
share of compliments. Someone came forth with the valuable remark that
soft tweeds for tea dancing preserve the schoolgirl complexions much more
than do the coarser variety. And just incidentally, pipe smoking looks won-
derful with the be-tweeded collegiate.
Gabardine suits, especially in brown and grey, win approval. Gabar-
dine trousers are, by the way, one of the favorites, for offsetting tweed
sport coats. Belted backs don't win the popular vote they once did,
and their former popularity goes to center or double vents. Most women
prefer the count of three for buttons on jackets, but one person spoke
up very strongly for four button coats on tall men. Definitely on top
is camel hair. In all three lengths-top coat, medium lengths and sport
coAt-it gets the first note of admiration. As all men know, women like
covert cloth enough to swipe it from masculine closets for their own
wardrobes, but they don't want to take it all for they like to see lots of
men's ton coats in that material.
Ties are a good thing! That's the opinion of all, with no dissenting vote.
Open collars are all right for the summer, but school's in and so are the
winter winds. And the calmer the ties, the better, with dark wool plaids
among the favorites. A feminine heart revealed itself when one girl said
her favorite sight was a blonde man wearing a dark suit with a dark tie.
For any type and any occasion, a white shirt is preferred over colors.
Now for important incidentals. No "business man's" hats. Al-
though practically every vote is cast for hats on campus and for dates,
they must be casual, worn straight on the head and pushed back a little.
Not so casual, though, that wavy brims or gabardine pork-pies are in
the limelight. Moccasins seem more popular than saddles, and black
shoes, except for evening wear, get no encouragement. Sporty, casual
argyles take first place for socks. About "green" there is a great contro-
versy, for some are very enthusiastic while others think it's the last
cola a man should wear.
So men want women to be neat! Turnabout is fair play, and co-eds ask
for the same thing. In spite of informality, well pressed suits are a pleasure
to the eye. There's a plea that sweaters be kept for picnics or sports, not
for classes, and there's a "nix" on the athlete's love of a Michigan T shirt
for campus wear. Neatness shouldn't, however, mean painful exactness.
Overly carefully planned outfits, with color accents that too obviously bal-
ance off each other, is as taboo as spic-and-span-ness that hints of stoginess.
Women, we've heard, by far prefer dressing formally than men-
although there is some doubt as to whether the masculine grumbling is
all sincere. It shouldn't be, for most think men are at their best in tails.
A note to those getting ready for an occasion that shouldn't require
tails or to very short men who never like to get into them-women don't
at all mind seeing you comfortable in a soft collar with a tux. Chester-
fields are a wonderful, but not a necessary addition. Opera hats should
be worn only if they look well on the man. Now let's say goodbye to Mr.
Michigan Man, as he puts on whatever type of hat he looks best in and
walks out of this column for now.

To Feature Hourly Executions;

A frock-coated gentleman will be
stationed at the pearly gates which
eve'yone must enter, Mortis ex-
plained, to utter a curse and a prayer
over each gloomy guest. The ball-
room will be draped with black and
lighted with eerie tapers, added the
ghoul, and a large coffin, whose con-
tents are to remain a secret until
the fateful night, will be placed in
the center of the room.
"The Ghoulish Glide," a new dance
to be introduced by Mortis himself,
will be, in his unbiased opinion, a
spine-chilling sensation. The Union
terrace will be transformed into
"Congress' Catacombs" and, accord-
ing to Mortis, anyone who enters
thereon may abandon hope of ever
returning to civilization.
Bill Sawyer's orchestra, bullied in-
to playing for the fantastic frolic,
will be broadcast from midnight to
12:30 a.m. over WJR.

Swimming Qala
To Add Funds
For WAA Pool
The swimming pool for women-
modern, refreshing, much needed.
ind adaptable to many occasions-
.s coming nearer to realization as the
Women's Athletic Association adds
to its funds by selling tickets to the
annual Matt Mann Swim Gala next
'A knock at the dormitory or fra-
ternity door during dinner. and a
voung woman enters, pauses to tell
you about the opportunity to attend
the exhibition while helping to fur-
ther plans for the long awaited equip-
ment. Every house on campus will
be covered by the Association in its
endeavor to increase its swimming
pool account.
With its new plans for enlarged
organization of "mixed sports," the
WAA is hampered by the lack of
facilities for swimming along this
line. The Union pool does not have
accommodations for dressing rooms
for both men and women. Ordinary
swimming instructions and clubs
are also held back by the limited
amount of time allotted to women at
both pools on campus.
The University women, while agi-
tating for a swimming pool, have
sponsored Jan Savitt at the swing
session last year and Tommy Dorsey
the year before in their effort to
raise funds. Selling these tickets,
therefore, is just one more step for-
ward in the continuous drive for the
much needed pool.

Bedecked in the lates vogue, this
model is ready to step out to tea or

choose. Notice the sparkling square
buttons which contrast against a
dark background of sheer material.
