Petites Pommes de Terre
Probably the most important of the extremely important and vital
events which have been going on on the campus lately is the style show in
connection wth which, Michigan's Best-Dressed Male is to be selected. Im-
mediately after the announcement of the contest last week, a later com-
munique told campus admirers of high fashion that Allan Axelrod, whose
clothes would make .Jeeter Lester blanch, was a candidate for the title.
The fact in itself was interesting enough, but the whole intrigue behind
it is really much better. Started in an idle off moment by Hale Champion
and Will Sapp the program to promote the campaign, grew to amazing
rt -;o2rtions in an hour. A beautiful poster in a blinding color was planned,
at the top of which was to be featured a cut of "Homespun Al"-"Vote for
the Man Who Wears His Own" and "He achieves unique effects without
looking forced!" Below were a few. random endorse-
ments of Homespun Al's attributes from town business
organizations. From a second-hand clothes dealer-
"Mr. Axelrod's clothes are absolutely unbelievable"-
which is, if anything, understating the case, and The
Ann Arbor Dry Cleaning Association--"Axelrod? Never
heard of him!"
The serious backers of the show and the contest,
however, were really worried parties in the matter. A
gentleman who represented Esquire and had been sent
from New York, expressly to assist in the promotion of
the whole enterprise was told of the dark horse entry. He asked to see him,
and Al was duly pointed out. Now no man can fulfill the exacting duties of
being a Best Dressed Man On Campus without having a fairly impressive
wardrobe. No mere charm and amiability of manner will fit him for the
post. He must be equipped with tarpaulins for suits and what looks like
the tops of old fashioned bathing suits for sweaters.
Smooth Old Al has all of these, and seeing him, the arbiter of fashion
from the big city winced. His reaction, in fact, was terrific; there was a
moment of sudden paralysis, he stared glassily. It was clear that he would
unhesitatingly cast him for the role of star in a horror film, but Best
Dressed Man On Campus? Egad, I mean, well after all! The ghastly sud-
denness of the thing was perhaps its most appalling feature. He shook his
head unbelievingly to clear it. Surely this was not a suit on the lad? It
must certainly be a coal delivery coming in in sacks! For once in his mas-
terly life this masterly man was completely unnerved. He rushed out and
relieved his feelings by sending six telegrams in rapid succession.
But Smooth Old Al withdrew a short time afterwards with no protest
at all. The gentleman from Esquire was relieved beyond measure, and
' Smooth Old Al's friends were amazed. This was not the Axelrod they knew.
Where was that old gusto-that old fight-that old brio? After a short
period of sullen silence he explained to sympathetic friends that this had
said; he finds nothing in them to criticize, and talking in this hideous
been a severe blow to his pride. He, himself is quite fond of his clothes, he
flippant way of sacred things in which he had such an unspotted faith had1
completely destroyed his trust in humanity.

Easter will usher in a new spring
Sseason and with it the problem of
new spring clothes. Defense activi-
ties have brought with them the pos-
sibilities and even the probabilities
of a future shortage of pure and vir-
gin wools. With this thought in mind,
smart buyers are shopping for suits
that will wear indefinitely and will
keep their style for many seasons to
This classic suit with a long tailored
ja(-ket and slightly flared skirt will
be the backbone of both your spring
and fall wardrobes. Whether worn
over a sweater or with a dickey or
blouse, this will be smart in all cir-
cles. In any case, a pure wool lable
should be your guide in suit-shopping
this season.
