You Fit To Be Tied?
We have been warned that metal
jewelry will have to be relinquished
for the duration but it doesn't end
there. Dresses and coats will be de-
signed with tie belts-or beltless-
and zippers, metal buttons and even
snaps may have to be abandoned, in
time, as fasteners. This will mean
bows at the neckline, bows at the
waist and in all a rather baggy ef-
fect-all because of the metal

Hardy Dance
Previewing the bunny and all the
colored eggs of the Easter season,
there will be a very, very informal
dance from 9 p.m. to midnight to-
morrow in the League Ballroom, with
Gordon Hardy and band furnishing
the melodies as usual.
Sweaters, skirts, saddle shoes or no
shoes, will be in vogue for the eve-
ring and some new arrangements
which promise a treat, are up. the
sleeves of the boys in the band, who
really ought to know.
Joan Reutter, winner of that not-
so-long-ago contest for "Miss Michi-
gan of Song," is the featured vocalist
with Hardy's band, with "Doc"
Sprachlin stepping in now and then
to warble a ballad or two.
The quintet will also make itself
very much heard, it's understood,

Thompson, base fiddle man and for-
merly with Jimmy Dorsey, Charlie
Goodell, "Honk" Howard, Marvin
Droeger, and Hardy himself on the

celebration include that favorite,

Probably only- seniors have been
conscious of the peculiar phenomena
which has begun to assert itself lately
at Michigan-and every other cam-
pus for that matter-but they, plus
a few incidental juniors, have known
of it-even in its dormant state for
quite a few months.
Contests-not quite as bad as the
breakfast-food rhyme kind, but
right up there fighting for first place
-have college girls in their assorted
grips. Every fashion magazine in the
country from the Needlers' Guide
right on up to Vogue is sponsoring
some contest or another which of-
fers fame, orchids and ermine to the
winner, and guarantees that she will
sodn be sitting behind the editorial
desk in the front office.
Scorns Competition
"Great heavens," every girl in the
country screams to herself. "This is
my big chance! With all the jerks I
know for competition and all the
probable jerks I don't know for com-
petition, how can I miss?" She muses
a bit. "I'll enter," she resolves, quick-
ly signing a handy WCTU pledge and
kicking her parcheesi board under
the bed where it won't tempt her to
waste time.
And so she enters, poor thing. The
first slight inconveniencethat she
notices is the fact that every time
she must send in one of the little
essays which comprise so important
a part of the contest, she has a blue-
book or a term paper due. Also, there
is the small matter of trying to dig
up enough money at the end of the
month to buy the derned magazine.
Fads, Please
All these troubles are as nothing,
however, compared with the agony
of getting plausible material on
styles to write about. Every third
essay it seems is to "discuss the fads
of the moment on your campus."
Now, every college girl knows that
college is the last place you'll find
fads-fashion magazines just seem
to have gotten that idea, and they
cling to it tenaciously. So, no matter
what, you-"discuss the fads of the
moment on your campus."
Well, if there aren't any fads of
the moment, the only thing you can
do is make them up. The result is
that fashion periodicals all over the

Coeds Dream Up Campus Fads
For College Fashion Contests

country are receiving the amazing
news that "coeds are mad about
Pullman towels for scarves this year,"
and "pleated dresser scarves make
delightfully different skirts to wear
with your new mosquito netting
blouse," and "really smart college
girls are twining poison ivy around
their reading glasses to give their
faces a piquant charm, and inci-
dentally, to keep them awake."
the pangs of conscience have no
terrors for a senior who is looking
for a job and sees one in sight. "These
aren't lies," they'll tell you; "they
are nothing more than slight elabor-
ations. Can we help it if the average
coed has no originality?"
