Independent Fortnight, sponsored
since 1906 by Senior Society, will be-

include special programs for each ofl
the five groups in the independent
organization, announced Rosebud

These five groups are the women's
dormitories, the Ann Arbor Inde,
pendents, the League Houses, Beta

men working and attending school!
and the cooperative mouses on cam-
pus. Committees of Senior Society
members have been appointed to
plan the programs for these groups
and all of the nembers will partici-
pate in them.
Programs Present Activities
The programs will present to the
individual groups the kinds of activi-
ties open to independent women onf
camnpus. They will also show to some
extent the averages of the different
houses and dormitories as to the
amount of their participation, and
the activities in which they took
Five committees, made up of three
women each, have been delegated to
plan the events. The dormitory
committee consists of Peggy San-

These typical fall hats, although
designed around classical lines,
each have a clever twist which
gives them distinction in a crowd.
The topmost hat has a new irregu-
larly shaped crown and its wearer
can truly be said to be topped by
flying colors with respect to the
pert bow and trailing ribbons.
Cut along "classic" lines, the hat
on the lower left has appeal be
cause of its unusual snap brim.
The bright cluster of feathers at

the back render it suitable and be-
coming with almost any outfit.
The more dressy hat on the right
has an "off the face" tilt" yet its
turned down brim gives it smar.-
ness. The wide velvet bow and
flowing veil add a touch of fem-

Co-ops To Haye Program
The program for the Ann Arbor
Independents will be handled by
Jean Krise, Doris Cuthbert and Rho-
da Leshine, while Dorothy Anderson,
JPeggy Polumbaum and Mildred Cur-
tis will plan for the cooperative
houses. The activities demonstrated
to the independent women will in-
clude publications, athletics, League
work and individual house activities.
The airn of the entire Independent
Fortnight is to interest the unaffili-
ated women on campus in the activi-
ties offered during their college life,
and to increase attendance at the
Assembly Banquet, which is the first
big event of the independent year
and which also concludes the Fort-,
night programs.
Senior Society Taps
Sometime during the banquet,
Senior Society will tap five new
members to add to its present ranks.
The members wear caps and gowns
during the ceremony and the follow-
ing day, new members will be seen
on campus wearing the traditional
white collar and blue ribbon.
Assembly and Senior Society plans
for the coming year were also an-
nounced by Miss Scott after a recent
meeting of the officers. The annual
Come Across Dance will be held the
week-end before Christmas vacation
and will be, as usual,. an informal
affair. The honor society members
will also be entertained by Dean
Alice Lloyd, Nov. 17.
Conference Is Planned'
Plans for a conference of inde-
pendent women from the Big Ten
universities, are also being made.
Problems of independent activities
and organizations will be the center
of discussion. There will be women
attending from' Purdue, Ohio State,
Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Chicago,
and also Wayne University and
Michigan State College. The tenta-
tive dates set for the conference are
either January or the early part of

Designers Find Inspiration For Fashion
In History, Newspapers And Vacations,

- For fuller lecture notes.
" For part time and summer employment.
" For 'more certain employment after graduation.
" For congenial defense work in the army or industry.
Hamilton Busines ollege
27th year William at State

There's nothing new under the sun I
-at least not in so far as basic fash-
ion trends are concerned. In fact,
it seems to us that fashion designers,
the leading couturiers and milliners,
are practically the world's worst
The source of a designer's inspira-
tion is rarely his own brain. His ideas
are mostly adapted from the fashionsl
of other peroids or other countries,
with the addition of such definitely
modern touches as the zipper and the
use of synthetic fabrics.
Is History Student
How does the average designer go
about getting his ideas, then? First
of all, he is probably a keen student
of the history of costume; he knows
all about women, at least what they
have worn, from Elizabeth's farth-
ingale to Alexandra's bustle.
And when he is devoid of ideas just
like a night editor who is told to con-
tribute a feature, he simply pulls a
sleeve here and a neckline there out
of the pile of outmoded styles rele-
gated to moldy attic trunks or musty
museums, uses them in a new com-
bination suitable for the modern fe-
male, and there he has an original
(?) creation. -
Tires Of Frills
Tired of frills and furbelows, some
smart person becomes a big-wig in
,the kaleidoscopic world of fashion by
simply reverting to the classic, simple
lines of the Greeks, to convince sus-
ceptible women that they could be
statuesque Junos in softly draped
Or another couturier gets himself
and his creations plastered all over
the fashion magazines by appealing
to our romantic natures with hoop-
skirted, hand-spanned waisted, bil-
lowing formals in which to glide
around the dance floor with Victorian
Capitalize On Calamity
Capitalizing on the war and other
news of interest, designers are con-
stantly introducing peasant touchesE
garnered from the authentic costume
of the particular tiny country that
suddenly is thrown in the limelight
by Hitler's latest conquest.
The Nazis took over Austria, so'
what happened? No more Salzburg
festivals, no more winter sports cen-
ted in the Tyrol after the Anschluss.
So we brought the Tyrol to us with
the help of Lanz and the ski experts,'
and we wore beflowered skirts and
embroidered blouses until the world's
attention became focused on some
other spot.}

cations on South American cruises

Shades of a by-gone era are the
fashions of the forties: Bustles, bas-

our grandmothers, while we're bor-
rowing tunics, ostrich plumes and
peg-tops from our mothers. Then
there's the sheath-like silhouette of
the mad twenties, only now the un-
flattering line is alleviated by a beltI
to show where the waistline is.
