Final Fling Has
Added Attraction
Of Ice Cream
The Union came through again,
this time bringing to the campus a
special treat, a preview of the Final
Fling. Yesterday noon those who
got up in time for their 11 o'clocks
were greeted with a delicious dish of
ice cream as they started the noon
rush home for lunch.
This campus addition of the Good
Humor Man was seen pushing a blue
wheelbarrow and wearing two signs
like the old time sandwich man roam-
ing around the Diagonal. After care-
ful ivestigation this welcome new-
comer turned out to be Bob Richards;
'45, re.hman tryout for the Union
staff, '1he fre~ei cream is just a
preview of Saturday' ( dance in the
Union Ballroom,.
At this time 1,000 ice cream cones
will be distributed to all who attend.
Since the advent of spring in Ann
Arbor, the ice cream cone has be-
come icesnl popular in all
groups. Not only the newest fresh-
men are seen strolling across the
Diagonal with an ice cream cone in
one hand and a beautiful girl in the
other, but also the biggest BWOC
and EMOC's look forward to getting
their daily ice cream cone.
Realizing this fact, the Union Ex-
ec utive oCicil acted quickly enough
to secure thlis large number of cones
so that Saturday night the students
will be able to combine their favorite
entertainment, dancing to Bill Saw-
yer, with their favorite refreshments,
the increasinl popular ice cream

SALISBURY, Md., May 13.-(A-
Peoples Court Judge E. Sheldon Jones
didn't waste any time fining a man
$5 and costs on charges of drunk and
disorderly conduct. "I really don't
even need to hear your testimony,"
Jones said. "I heard it early this
morning, and you caused me' tolose
a good hour's sleep."

Long Shorts, T
Mark Changes,
Although several changes have
been made in this season's sports
clothes, the keynote of play togs is
as always-"solid" comfort. Slacks
suits seem destined to capture first
place in many a summer wardrobe,
with three piece outfits promising to
offer some real competition.
The really new feature in slacks
this year is that they have been de-
signed to look attractive on all shapes
and sizes. Long jackets or tunic suits
are flattering on almost any figure,
while if you're lacking that longed-
for wasp-waist, a jerkin is an ade-
quate substitute, and is sure to pro-
vide that neat, up-to-date look.
From Sharkskin To Wool
As for material, anything goes
from sharkskin to light weight wool.
Sheperd's plaid is especially smart
this season, and even horse race
checks are being seen. .
The latest word in slacks them-
selves is the tapering of the trousers.
A "dirndlish" effect has also been
added to many of the new styles by
a gathering at the waist.
Three piece suits this year include
Judicial Memory
KANSAS CITY.-(A'-Ray Hill, 18,
was fined $5 for a traffic violation by
Judge Earle W. Frost of the munici-
pal court.
"Say," said Frost. recalling the de-
fendant to the bench, "weren't you
here once before, and promised to
bring the fine when you got it?"
"Yes, I forgot." answered Hill.
"I didn't," said the judge. "Your
fine now is $15."
Dinner To Be Held
All members in good standing of
the Varsity Glee Club are invited to
the annual banquet to be held from
6:15 p.m. tomorrow in the Michigan
Final refunds of music deposits will
be made then and all who ordered
pictures must pick them up at the
banquet. Serenading will follow.

Proves Capable
Of Double Duty
One of the many advantages of
balmy weather is the fact that sum-
mer clothes can play a double role,
that is, for date use as well as infor-
mal wear.
Accompanied by a pair of specta-
tors or any similar foot-geafx, any
type of summer clothes can be
dressed up appropriately.
The most popular style of the
"double duty" dress this year is the
fitted bodice, dirndl skirt mode. An
ever-growing popular material is
printed chintz, unglazed preferably,
with a white or pastel background.,
Combinations Are Used
The other materials that arebagain
good this year are striped broad-
bray. Ginghams and sharkskins both
cloth, solid colored pique, seersucker,
perchail and the ever-popular cham-
bray are most appropriate
Summer skirts, in any of the wash
materials or in light flannel, worn
with a silk or silk-jersey blouse or
a sweater makes a suitable date out-
Pinafore styles appear again this
year. They are made of several cuts.
One attractive innovation to the ba-
sic pinafore is a band of white, broad
ric-rack trim around the neck and
Spectators in Front Seat
The tailored shirt-waist is a prac-
tical dress that fully deserves its con-
stant popularity. Chiefly seen in
chambray, usually in soft, solid col-
ors, this model makes an excellent
"all-around" basic dress.
As for accessories with date clothes
nothing in the line of jewelry is par-
ticularly essential.

shirt, jacket, and slack comb'inations
as well as the standard trio of shirt,
shorts and blouse. Seersucker- is a
popular material for just such out-
fits because of its non-crushable
quality, although cottons and rayons
are equally popular. Open necklines
and gored fly-front skirts also char-
acterize these practical outfits.
Shorts Getting Longer
For tennis or hot weather, shorts
still fit the bill-and what's more
they're getting longer! The last-
word is the just-above-the-knee
length, with a turned up cuff.
Short shorts are holding their own,
however, and the newest addition to
this category is the sleek looking
black boxing shorts. With a turtle
neck sweater or one of those popular
middy blouses, you're all set for a
real workout!
Versatile Turbans
Gain In Popularity
Snugly fitting turbans are grow-
ing in importance and popularity
each day, and the uses to which they
may be put ae keeping an exact
Although turbans are everywhere
at every hour of the day, at present
they are most in evidence Friday and
Saturday nights about dinner time.
It is then that college women in an-
ticipation of a gala evening ahead
conceal their latest hair styles under
turbans and go without dinner in
order that their hair may dry sure-
ly and perfectly.
How much more sensible it is to
wear a turban on the tennis courts
rather than suffer the inconvenience
of having one's hair continually blow-
ing around, straggle across her face,
and generally make a nuisance of

Wrinkle Proof
Travel Clothes
Are Essential
With all of the masculine element
in one branch of the service or
another summer travel clothes this
year will definitely lean toward the
sensible and easy-to-pack.
Musts for those weekend jaunts to
see the man in uniform include: aI
suit for wear on the train (and don't
put big patch pockets on it. Defense
says you can't.) Be sure to insist on a
wrinkle proof material, if you want
your arrival at camp to be heralded
with applause, or at least admiring
For Your Travels
To accent your travel suit we sug-
gest a dainty blouse, Don't be afraid
of a frill or two, because they do help
to relieve the monotony of olive drabs.
Take an easily packed, "muss" re-
sistent dress, and be sure it looks and
is cool. Remember Uncle Sam isn't
planting big, shady trees in front of
the barracks these days for you to
sit under. Again by all means make
yourself a sight to behold by being
strictly feminine. There's enough of
the masculine, military influence
around camp when you're not there.
Have Evening Wear
Chances are, if he's an officer, you
will not go wrong with an evening
dress in the bottom of your suitcase.
We're terribly fond of the demure
little summer cottons that include
jackets for informal affairs, and elim-
inate the necessity of carrying an ex-
tra wrap to boot.
Treat yourself to one of those great
big bags that hold everything that
won't fit in your "overnighter". They
come in colors that make them look
good enough to eat, and while we're
on the subject of color here's on
more word on this business of being
ultra-feminine. By all means wear
pastels and bright colors, but don't,
don't, don't wear a Blrass buttoned
cross between a suit and a uniform.
How would you feel if you went down
to meet the best gal from home and
she appeared looking like one of the
Take A Coat
Don't start out without a topcoat
in case the weather gets a little cool-
ish. Most flattering of the year, as
far as we can see are the pastels
with big pearl buttons.
The final word, don't even consider
shorts and slacks unless you're sure
that the camp has a beach beside it
(and you can, be sure it won't).

Do insist on looking pretty, and
give them all a change of scenery, and
incidentally give yourself a big charce
of getting invited back t we're sure
you will).

Meadville, Pa.-(IP)-An hour after
a prisoner in the city jail shouted
"I've been robbed" Police Chief E. C.
Gibson booked the prisoner's ex-
cellmate on a larceny charge.,
Gibson said two construction work-
ers had occupied the same cell after
being arrested on a charge of drunk-
enness. After one of the men was
given his freedom his companion re-
ported $24 had disappeared. The
chief gave the accused thief a sep-
arate cell on his return to jail.
to an alarm, fire trucks today
clanged up to the Philadelphia mint,
one of the most closely guarded in-
stitutions in America.
While firemen argued with a guard
who barred entrance, a foreman
leaned from a window and asserted:
"You can't get in here, buddy."
"But there's a fire," shouted one
of the firemen.
"There is no such thing," was the
reply before the foreman slammed
the window, "but if there was, you
still couldn't get in."
They didn't.
Dinner Will Be Given
For League Council
The Union Executive Council will
entertain the Women's League Coun
cil at dinner at 6:15 p.m. today in

will be present at the affair. Miss
Ethel McCormick and Mr. Frank
1 Oakes will be special guests.
The program, which is to follow
the banquet, will include speeches
by Don West, '43, and Charlotte
Thompson, '43, presidents of the
Union and League respectively.
New Problem Rises
NEWARK, 'N. J.-(-P)-Sugar ra-
tioning registration brought this
problem today to Jack McLaughlin,
a clerk in the school superintendent's
A woman telephoned, "I'm expect-
ing a baby soon, can I have a book
for it now?"
"No," would have been the easy
way out, but McLaughlin said:
"You know, if you had twins, you'd
be out one book. Why don't you wait
until the final count is in?"
The woman was agreeable.

Neatly- perched on the back of the
head, this "petit chapeau" is ideal
for summer, wear. Made of a colorful
straw,'the hat will be of such a light-
weight quality that the wearer will
be completely unaware that she has
on a hat. Moreover, there is no dan-
ger 6f disrupting your hair dress with
a headgear of this sort.
The smart looking veil adds that
finishing touch and makes the hat
appropriate for dressy occasions as,
well as sportswear. And others are
sure to approve, too, for this is one
hat which promises not to obstruct
anyone's view or to reach out and
hit someone when he's not looking.
Its simplicity and coolness makes it
just the thing for summer.
