American Youth Hostel Offers
Outdoor Trips At Dollar A Day


Prints Herald Spring

Roughing it-with good beds, and
hot and cold running water-that's
Youth Hosteling! Today, some 100,-
000 hostelers frequent the 5,000-odd
hostels which dot the world.
Hosteling expenses total less than
a dollar a day! This unbelievably
low sum is due to the fact that the
AYH (American Youth Hostel) is a
non-profit institution existing en-
tirely for the benefit of the hostelers.
The hostels, usually located on sec-
ondary roads at fifteen-mile inter-
vals, are generally farm houses con-
verted for the purpose with separate
sleeping quarters for the boys and'
girls, common kitchens and dining
rooms, and are supplied with genial
"house-parents" who serve as chap-
Cook Own Meals
The travelers cook their own meals
(the food is bought at the nearby
grocery), wash their own dishes and
make their own beds, and although
there are no rigid hostel rules gov-
erning conduct, consideration for
others is expected. Most hostelers are
collegians, nevertheless all those "be-
tween 4 and 94" who enjoy the out-*
of-doors and like to travel "under
their own steam," be it foot, bicycle,
skis, horseback or canoe, are eligible
Essentials include an AYH 'pass,
which may be purchased for one dol-
lar by those under 21 and for two
dollars by those past the voting age.
Incidentally, the pass is good for one
year. An AYH handbook, guide to
even the most remote hostel, is a
hosteler's "must" as well as a sheet
sleeping sack to be carried from hos-
tel to hostel. Overnight rates are
twenty-five cents per night. Even
though the United States alone
boasts of more than 250 Youth Hos-
tels, many of the more adventurous
Defense Uniforms
Should Be Correct
For Volunteer Wear
For those who have volunteered
for defense work, desire to wear a
correct uniform has taken primary
importance in their mind right along
side of obtaining the correct formal
for that "big" spring dance. How-
ever, the volunteers will wear a uni-
form only if authorized. This is es-
pecially true in the case of woolen
ones, for wool is at a premium.
The American Red Cross uniform
for outdoor workers is a slate-blue
coat-dress. It combines rayon-and-
wool covert with a sharkskin dickey.
An overseas cap of the same slate
blue completes the outfit. The coat
work over the dress is slate blue
cavalry twill with a zip-in flannel
lining, for those particularly blus-
tering days. The epaulets on the
coat vary with the branch of your
For the Office of Civilian Defense
an outdoor winter "dress" uniform is
worn. This is in a suit design with
a long jacket, four pockets, brown
leather belt and gold buttons. The
0. C. D. office worker's uniform is
of service-blue. Being a shirt-waist
dress, use is made of large pockets,
gilt buttons, grosgrain epaulets, and
a slim gored skirt.

Hostelers On Campus
In case this brings to mind the
groups of hikers or bikers you've seen
lined up in front of Hill Auditorium
on certain Saturday afternoons last
semester, you are right, they were
hostelers. The Michigan Outing Club
sponsors such hostels almost every
Saturday afternoon. The treks begin
after lunch on Saturday and the
travelers return just in time for din-
ner on Sunday. Last semester over-
night excursions were made to the
hostels at Pleasant Lake, Saline Val-
ley and Waterloo, while this semester
many new trips are on schedule. The
trips are made by bicycle or on foot
and offer a splendid campus oppor-

You will have to separate yourself
from more cash for the "Defense
Stomp" than for the ordinary run-
of-the-mill tea dance, but you'll be
able to get in some hot licks with your
change-'cause your change will be
in defense stamps.
This, the newest thing in tea
dances, will be held from 3:30 p.m.
to 5:30 p.m. March 5, in the League
Ballroom. It is the first in a series
of three which are being planned by
the V-DanceCommittee.

Tickets may be obtained at the
door of the ballroom and while the
price asked exceeds slightly the price
of other tea dances, each person will

Sugar Rationing To Be 'Blessing'
For Health Of American People

Duty Is
In Shoe


Believe us-spring is coming! We
know it because the fashion marts
are being brightened by eye-catching
prints such as the one pictured above.
The simplicity of this dress ac-
centuates its fine cut and charming
pattern. The smooth waistline and
torso cut bless the figure. A fore-
cast* of a future fashion "must" is
the two or three inches of shirring
emphasizing the torso waistline.
The slippers pictured above have
captured the fashion fancies of the
country. The ballet-dancer's influ-
ence is in Tading the realm of day-
time dressing and everyone loves it.
Nothing could be more flattering to
the well-turned ankle, or more fun
to wear than this shoe styled after
the ballet slipper.
Sale Of Tickets
For .Pay-Off'
Will Continue
Tickets for "Pay-Off," sponsored
by Mortarboard, are on sale and can
be obtained from Mortarboard mem-
bers or in Miss McCormick's office
in the League. The dance will be held
from 9 p.m. to midnight, Friday,
Feb. 27, in the League ballroom.
"Pay-Off" is the first all-campus
radio dance to be given this year, as
well as the first all-campus dance to
be given by the women for the men.
Informal dress will be the uniform of
the evening, says Mortarboard, and
adds a caution to the women to be
chivalrous toward their dates for just
one night.
With the change in women's hours
cutting time off the end of the eve-
ning, and with many fraternity and
sorority initiations scheduled to be-
gin the same week-end as the dance,
Mortarboard suggests that the wo-
men see to it that their dates begin
earlier, thus _keeping the amount of
fun to be found in one evening at a

urged to come, Cox said.
Assisting Cox on plans for the
dance are Phil Whelan, '45, Jean

Tryouts for "No Questions Asked,"
the 1942 Junior Girls Play, will con-
tinue from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today
in the Kalamazoo and Game Rooms
of the League. All eligible junior
women may try out for speaking,
solo or chorus singing parts, even
though they have already signed up
for another committee.
Eligibility cards must be presented,
health rechecks completed and class
dues paid before trying out for a
part in the cast of this year's JGP,
which will be given the end of March
for the seniors, the general public,
and for the soldiers at Fort Custer.

At Stanford University in Palo

rooms are provided for studying dur-

ing on as usual during an alarm.
WAA Board will meet at 4:45
p.m. today in the League, Donelda
Schaible, '42, president, has an-
nounced. Members must bring
their eligibility cards, signed by
the League, to the meeting.

I Designed Today I
It's "women into uniform" and
footwear dedicated to duty. Ameri-
can women are leading double duty
lives and shoe designers have res-
ponded with footwear combining
fashion and service.
Campus coeds will follow the trend
and take advantage of the smart low
heeled fashions. Calf, jodphur styled
moccasins resembling officers' boots,
are neat and comfortable walking
shoes. Sheep lined moccasins, de-
signed for air raid wardens should
prove an answer for numb toes.
The new crop of sport shoes are
featured in leather. Light brown
saddle leather is popularly used in
the buckle and strap version of the
campus flat. Soft red calf in a flap
shoe with gum soles reverts back to
the prep school favorite. _
The antique brown leather flat tie-
ups are now popular on campus.
Good arch support is guaranteed by
these. Laces matching light coats
may be bothersome to put in, but
they add a bright dash to a stable
What about date shoes? A flat
black suede pump and narrow red
strap is a new version of the classic
style and will be really appreciated
by those of you who need dressy but
down to earth footwear.
Shoes for off duty hours are feat-
ured with both low and high heels.
The latter are shown in patent leath-
er, bright suedes, and colored calf.
Open toes predominate; new styled
sandals have numerous criss cross
lines. Nailheads switch from plat-
form soles to shoe ornaments, while
platform clogs in shiny calf and high
strap are recommended for the so-
Suit shoes are more in the campus
style. Antiqued red calf with black
heel are casual and classic. Tailored
calf or crushed kid pumps with
tricky "doodads," head the list. Here's
an original and tailored calf pump.
It has a bump toe and a tiny square
leather purse over it with contrast-
ing color lining.

"It's a blessing in disguise," said
Miss Adelia M. Beeuwkes, instructor
in nutrition in the School of Public
Health, of the effect of the new sugar
rationing which has been set up.
"The great American dietary
fault," she continued, "has been the
eating of too much refined food con-
taining only calories and no other
nutritive value. Last year the sugar
consumption was 114 pounds per
capita in the United States as com-
pared to 10 pounds per capita in
1830. Now Leon Henderson, federal
price administrator, predicts cutting
it down to 77 pounds, and I believe
it a very good thing."
Fewer Vitamins Consumed
"The danger of this terrific in-
crease during the past century has
been not only that we get nothing
but calories from the sugar itself,
but that such consumption pushes
aside the consumption of those pro-
tective foods that contain vitamins
and minerals as well. From eating
too much sugar, we are bound to eat
too few of the cereals, fruits and
vegetables that alone would supply
the necessary calories along with
plenty of the other food values."
Miss Beeuwkes believes that a large
part of the sugar consumption could
be cut down be cutting out the car-
bonated drinks, candies and choco-
late bars. Statistics show, she says,
that 74 pounds of the 114 are used
in the household, and 40 pounds are
used in industry, a significant indi-
cation that America tends far too
much to eat refined foods. To com-
bat this dietetically harmful ten-
dency, she proposes the adoption of
the campaign slogan, "Choose your
calories by the company they keep."
In other words, eat the natural food-
stuffs that haven't had all the im-
portant nutritive value taken away.

the situation, Miss Beeuwkes added,
"there is nothing hysterical about
this nutrition propaganda. We sim-
ply have to begin now to see that
every age group is in the best of
health for participation in the big
war effort. This ration plan is an
attempt to encourage positive good
health instead of just a state of not
being sick. It is also an effort to be-
gin early to save food. Wasted food
is lost food."
Conservation Needed
Miss Beeuwkes predicted that if
the democracies who have so much
food now were to conserve the supply
so that they would have enough after
the war to assist war-torn democ-
racies, they might have a larger in-
fluence on the peace terms. In Paris,
according to recent reports, she says,
the monthly ration of butter is less
than one ounce per person, and food
is so scarce that people don't dare
let their pets (when pets are allowed)
out into the streets for fear the poor
animals will be stolen and eaten.
Concluding the interview, Miss
Beeuwkes expressed hope that the
new rationing program might im-
prove American nutrition habits per-
manently, and with it the national
