eerie strains of his music will be
heard over Station WJR from mid-
night to 12:30 a.m.
Decorations for the party will fol-
low the gruesome tone which the par-
ty will strike. Pearly gates, black
drapes, eerie tapers will all add to the
sordidness of the spectacle, Mortis
explained. The contents of the large
coffin which will be placed in the
middle of the dance floor were not

f eal er 9 ", Il Ci ' l

With the coming of the snows, Ann
Arborites take up another discussion
-do you like this weather, or do you
not? Very probable it is that those
who do like it know how to keep
warm, and those who don't, have
spent too many a cold winter to look
forward to what is coming.
To those who haven't succeeded
in repelling chill winds, may the
question be asked-is vanity keep-
irg you in the cold? If so, it's silly.
Anyone can be warm and beautiful.
There are beautiful but warm coats,
and, for you who already have
winter coats, there are a thousand-
fold (well, nearly that many) ac-
cessories that tell the same story.
Among them are the most varied
headgear. From warm South Ameri-
ca comes this frost-chaser, an adap-
tation of the Peruvian chullo. They
are bright knitted bonnets that are
pulled down over the ears. Triangu-
lar tabs flap out on each, side to
make them look much like a Dutch
cap, and the pointed crown is either
left up or pulled down to one side
or the front.
Kerchiefs can be the neatest,
smartest things if care is taken of
them. They should match some
part of the outfit. If you have a
big shawl that will fall lower than
regular kerchiefs, throw one corner
of it over the opposite shoulder
for a dashing effect. For campus
have the shawl of wool, for evening,
of silk.
When feet get numb, there's a
.rmedy. It's a rubber or suede shoe-
ioot. zipped up the front, fleece lined
and with sheepskin cuffs. The effect
is bulky, sort of Mongolian and very
attractive. With the shortness of
skirts nowadays, it is definitely not
oo heavy looking.
News in gloves is colorfully dyed
lamb's wool backs with leather
palms. The cold just can't get
through thick boxing gloves. And
for evening wear, long gloves can
again be taken up. Most have
stopped using them because they're
such a struggle to get into. Now,
in glamorous black or jade green,
elbow length evening gloves have a
cuff as wide as a Canadian Moun-
tie's gauntlet, but the edge is all
gilt to make it look less practical.
To keep the body warm, jerkins
are right. Wool or knit ones adorn
either date dresses or skirt and blouse
outfits. If you have a short warm
coat, some very attractive flannel
slips can be worn under skirts to
keep the lower half of you as warm
as the top. And sweaters have now
reached into every corner of the
feminine wardrobe to be chosen on
every occasion that pops up in the
twenty-four hours.
Some women just aren't for
things that come close around the
face. They want to stick to hats
in the snow. But what to do about
your hair getting wet and scraggly?

Corsages On Display
Everything from the flower that
tops those campus curls at Soph
Prom to the evening wrap to be
wcrn at home during a freezing New
Year's Eve, to the corsage that rests
against the shoulder of the J-Hop
chairman's partner will be on dis-
olay in the "Formal Room".
The daintiest sweaters and the
bulkiest hooded ski suits will all be

the "Sport Chamber."
Radios Exhibited

along with typewriters, lamps, and
other mechanical devices, will be in

Mimes Opera Draws Talent
From Campus Songwriters

Dance." Most of the songs were writ-
ten on special assignment for the
Last year's opera, "Four Out of
Five," featured five Bowen-Hardy
songs. among them "I'm in Love with
a Dream,' which is now played at the
Union by Bill Sawyer as part of his
regular dance program.
Song May Be Tradition
Holding a sentimental spot in the
'opera, Summerfelt's drinking song,
"To Michigan." bears about as much
resemblance to the rafter-raising
stein song as a minuet does to the
shag. Because it is felt that this
song may become one of the tra-
ditional Michigan songs, a special
place was made for it, according to
Bill Slocum, '42, publicity chairman
of the opera.
Another sentimental spot in the
production is Summerfelt's "Your
Page in My Mem'ries is Blue," which
will be sung by Chan Pinney, '41, who
has the leading role. "The Mythical
Male from Yale" is a hilarious song
that ought to appeal especially to
the Alpha Phis, Summerfelt thinks.
"Michigan Memories," from last
year's opera is another one of Sum-
merfelt's compositions. He is a stu-
dent in the music school, and plays in
;he Michigan band. It was his ar-
rangement of "Summertime" that
was played by the band for Varsity

Wear it in a roll pinned just below
the edge of your hat. Very little of
it gets wet, and when its combed
cut it's curly and dry. Another
hint-let this first snow act as a
warning to get out hand and face
creams,-for chapped and red skin
never yet has helped loveliness.
Coats of lambs' wool, sometimes
known as British llama, makes won-
derfully warm coats that extend up
into hoods. Fur coats too climb above
the shoulders to develop hoods to keep
wind away from the neckline.
Best Dressed Coed of the Week is
Charlotte Cleary, '43, who is keeping
warm in a silver fox jacket. Flowers
balance just over her forehead, and
the gown, decorated with a design of
small, wooden beads on pockets and
neckline, is silver-green.
