'Winter Carnival
Still To Be Held
Next Semester
All good things come if you wait,,
watch and pray long enough. You'll
get the toy trumpet you longed for as
a child when you have a long grey
beard, just as the Union staff got its
prayed-for snow when final exams
are just around the corner.
It's too late now, however, to do
anything about it. The much-herald-
ed Winter Carnival will take place at
the beginning of the new semester,
according to Don West, '43, and Don
Harness, '43, co-chairmen of publici-
ty for the carnival.
Carving Will Be Featured
One of the features of the carn-
ival will be the snow-carving con-
test. The fame of snow carvers from{
other schools has spread throughout
the collegiate world, but inasmuch as
it is Michigan's first chance at it,

Judges Are Announced
West and Harness specified that
each entry should have a sign placed
near the exhibit, telling just what
the entry is supposed to be (conces-
sion to amateurs).
Judges will be Prof. Walter J. Gores
of the decorative design department
of the School of Architecture, Miss
Catherine Helter, also of the decora-
tive design department, and Marga-
ret Whittemore, '41, member of the
League Council.

Boots March
Into Fashion
With Winter
"Tramp, tramp, tramp the boots
are marching down the diagonal eve-
ry stormy day," could well be the
new theme song of the Michigan
coed for she has at last accepted
the dictates of dame fashion and
dionned the boot as official footgear.
Last year on many campuses, the
women immediately took a liking to
this novel way of keeping their feet
dry, but the conservative dressers at
Michigan steered clear of this new

courage to put on these boots and
appear in public. Yes, they were
different from the ordinary overshoe,
but were they going to be a passing
fancy, and how would the men take
The last question was soon an-
swered for no serious objections
seemed to be forthcoming from the
male element. The boot was prac-
tical and not too hard on the eyes.
And so, reluctantly at first, and then
with wholeheartedness, the boot ap-
peared. They were worn by the
BWOC as well as the hope-to-be
But there are many more pleasing
features about the finally accepted
boot. Lately new and smart ideas
have been incorporated. Colors
pleasing to all tastes instead of the
