'Spot Hop'

The Class of '45 announces a gala
intermission of entertainment for the
"Spot Hop," the Freshman Project,
which will be, held from 9 p.m. to
midnight, April 18, at the League
Four skits will be presented. Alpha
Chi Omega will stage a skit on a
Freshman's First Blind Date. Chi
Omega will give an act called "Dorm
Fever," where every woman is con-
fined to her bed with measles. A
fashion show which will be a take-
off on the types of dress that can
be seen on campus, is to be the feat-
ure of Gamma Phi Beta. Jordan
Hall will satirize the treatment one
receives at the Health Service when
strickened with measles.
Eileen' Blum, '45, a contralto, is
to sing two numbers: "Kiss in the
Dark" and "Bill." A chorus made
up from the Barbour Gym tap class
will do a number. Perhaps one of
the best features of the evening will
be the singing of the Psurfs (The
Ann Arbor Mountain-Climbing and
Psurf-Riding Association). The mis-
tress of ceremonies will be Natalie
Mattern, '45.
Homage was paid to all women who
have aided in bringing honor to the

astic average, as well as the women
who had obtained appointments in
extra-curricular activities, were pre-
sented with flowers and gifts.
Stockwell Hall has done an exten-
sive job of entertaining this week.
Tuesday, they held an exchange din-
ner with Hinsdale and Greene Houses
of the East Quadrangle. Wednesday,
Stockwell held a house tea which
was attended by the residents and
their guests.

'Prices Were
Much Lower
Then,' Say Files
From now on we are going to hear
the wail, "Remember how cheap!
things were before the war?"-we
think they were cheap but just look
at the. newspaper advertisements be-
fore the First World War. Whale-'
bone corsets guaranteed not to crack
in the waistline were 79 cents, girls!
Look in the files of any Ann Arbor
newspaper of around 1908 or so and
see how fashions change even in the
lowly rag. Who could resist the sales'
talk of "Dress Goods Slaughtered"
or the headlines declaiming "Col-
lege Students Do Not Drink" or "Japs
Are Sensitive"?
Daily Scorned Women's Ads
The Michigan Daily, with a tra-
ditional scorn of women, did not cater
to their buying power in their ad-
vertisements, but The Ann Arbor
News constantly featured special
French Val lace was one cent a
yard, fur scarfs of "Japanese mink"
were $5.70 and now safely away from
the Victorian Age, ladies' fine ribbed
union suits were featured at 79 cents.
Other items were mourning pins
(???) one box for a penny, and be-
lieve-it-or-not, sirloin steak was 15
cents per pound.
Living Was Inexpensive!
Those were the good old days when
the Lecture Series AND Choral Un-
ion tickets were three dollars for the
series of 10 for each of them. One
of our leading bookstores also used
to offer the latest fiction at a flat
rate of $1.20, and who knows what
text books were?
Fancy phrases as ". . . the remains
will arrive on the 6:10 train" or ". .
four children have been given to this
union, two of whom survive" sound
silly now, but 20 years later our obitu-
aries and probably the rest of the
nation's papers will be just as funny
o the next generation.

'Bomber Dance' To Be Given

Wolverine is sponsoring a "Bomb-f
er Dance" for the Bomber Scholar-
ship Fund from 9 p.m. to midnight
Saturday, April 25, in the Wolverine
dining room.
Gross proceeds from the dance will
go to the fund since the food will
be donated by the Wolverine and the
labor by 78 Wolverine workers.
These 78 men have made up their
own committee which includes, Ed
Sosnowaki, '43, Jerry Moscowitz, '45E,
Paul Gardner, '44, Murray Gottlieb,
'42, Ted Astley, '43, with whom th?
Wolverine Board of Directors, head-
ed by John Scheibe, '42M, president,
is cooperating. Ann Arbor business
organizations are also assisting with

money contributions which will be
used for programs.
It should be stressed that this is'
an all-campus affair, open to every-
one, and wide support of all groups
is hoped for by the committee.
Signs will appear shortly on bulletin
boards and tickets may be bought at
the door as well as other places
which will be announced later.
Group To Hold Party
All students in the School of Pub-
lic Health and their guests are in-
vited to attend the Public Health
Party at 8:30 p.m. today in the As-
sembly Hall of the Rackham Build-

lowed by refreshments.

Picnics are in order for the comn-
ing warm days that we have so hap-
pily tasted this past week. With base-
ball, boating and fun in general,
you're going to want some good hardy
:lothes that will take their share
and more of knocking around.
Slacks, of course, are the first
Lhing one thinks of for the forth-
-oming hardy outdoor life. However.
'since no coed wants to be the walk-
ing demonstration of "what slacks
'3hould not do for one," care should
be taken in buying. Well c'ut grey
i'lannels or a navy gaberdine trouser
;uit with matching jerkin or jacket
will gain you a reputation of being
well-dressed everywhere. Denims are
also popular for still more strenu-
ous activities from now on through'
