Pleats, All-Wool
Crow Scarcer
In New Styles
Comfort is still the keynote of col-
lege sportswear! Even though the
outrageously roomy "Zoot Suits" may
have been abandoned by the War
Production Board, sloppy sweaters
are still being worn this fall.
While the trend in skirts has stuck
to plaids and checks, the pleats seem
to be skimpier-or not at all. How-
ever the tapering skirts with the dip-
ping hemlines are seldom seen among
the college coed's wardrobe. And
along with the decrease in flares, ev-
ery shopper has noticed the scarcity
of zippers in both dresses and skirts.
Less 100% Material
Material itself has undergone a
radical change with less all-wool ap-
parel being shown and more rayon
and mixtures available. And with
quality going down, every war-mind-
ed citizen is taking the best of care
of all old, as well as new clothes. Nor
is it much of a job to revamp last
year's models into up to the minute
Outfits, for by merely cutting things
down to trimmer lines clothes are
made. more up to date.
But just because women have re-
signed themselves to narrower skirts
and fewer pockets one can hardly say
they have given up all their frills.
Bows are seen everywhere. . .in neat
rows down the fronts of dresses, on
dress suits, evening gowns, and in
touseled heads.
Slacks Take Back Seat
And at last trousers have taken a
back seat in women's fashions. Last
spring the weaker sex were all "mad"
about slacks--and the men were just
mad. But after a summer of heckling
the women have finally agreed to
forget them--it's not the right season
for them anyway.
Among the new fall shades comes
a color which looks like a cross be-
tween purple and pink. It can be worn
well with browns and blacks or al-
most any shade of blue, Grayish blues
are also good this season and furnish
a slight contrast to the usual fall
browns and golds.
Night Life Suffers
Evening dresses, too, have followed
the same set pattern of eliminating
the billowing skirts and replacing
them with slinkier lines, and less ma-
terial. However, less formal wear is
displayed this season as there will
definitely be a much smaller demand
for it, and evening dresses have taken
on the appearance of something like
date dresses-ankle length.
More material is saved in hats, too,
for milady can get away with wearing
a mere speck on the back of her head
this season. Pots, berets, and small
caps with visors are plentiful in all
the store windows. Just as long as it's
easy to wear and doesn't demand too
much material, it's on the fashion
parade this season.

League President To Encourage




Charlotte Thompson, '43, president
of the League, said in an interview
last Thursday, that her trip to Wash-
ington to attend the International
Student Assembly, September 2 :to 7,
has impressed her more than ever
that her position at the League
should be one of encouraging *Michi-
gan women to participate to the ut-
most in war activities.
She plans to stress "scholarship,
service, and training" above all else
in her capacity as League president.
According to Charlotte, Michigan is
now the leading university with a
war training program.
On Arrangements Committee
As Michigan's woman delegate to
the Assembly, which was sponsored
by the International Student Service,
Charlotte was chosen one of fifteen
delegates to be on the arrangements
committee for the conference.
Three hundred delegates from all
the United Nations and 125 invited
colleges of this country attended the
conference. P'oreign students in this
country and from abroad arrived in
Washington expressly to discuss im-
portant issues of the war..
Charlotte says that women played
an important role at the Assembly.
Mrs. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was
present at many of the sessions and
participated in one evening discus.-
sion group. Other Interesting womnen
whom Charlotte met were Miss Luid-
mila Pavlichenko, the Russian girl,
famous as a German sniper, and. a
Chinese girl who flew all the. way
from Chungking on Thursday to at-
tend the last two -meetings.
Charlotte remarked-'that she was
particularly impressed by the pres-
ence of anti-Nazi delegates from ,Ger-
many and delegates from Free
Radios Blacked-Out
She also explained that the speech-
es were considered of eno igh impor-
tance so that all radios were blacked-
out in subjugated countries. Presi-
dent Roosevelt made one broadcast
speech to the group, and foreign dele-
gates broadcasted the proceedings
to their respective countries in their
native languages: Newsreels .'of the
Assembly were sent all over the world.
The delegates had -tobe'p articu-
larly careful that no serotts differ-
ences arose among them, for -it is be-
lieved that the Axis would have, been
particularly anxious, to, c1hn that

we'e having the same trouble.
So theF spirit of the Assembly was
inspiration and cooperation. The del-
egates signed a creed at the end .of
the sessions proclaiming a united
front on all issues.

Maybe you weren't aware of it, but the pick-up and delivery of your
laundry is an important source of rubber consumption. Last June our
Government issued an order requiring us, in effect, to reduce the mile-
age involved in our pick-up and delivery service by 25%. To conform
with this order we will necessarily have to operate on a five-day serv-
ice. Our new schedule is printed below ... under it our trucks will be
in your section of the city once every week. Your cooperation will make
this conservation measure a success.
