DILLONS just got in an or-
der of yummy pastel suits for
Spring. If you wear dickies
with your suits they have all
shades and the styles vary from
the round collar type to those
of many frills. To add that fin-
ishing touch to your suit they
have many beautiful lapel pins.
If you like a bargain and who
doesn't, we found some good
DRUG. They have that won-
derful Dorothy Gray's Dry Skin
Cream which usually sells for
$2.25 marked down to $1.00;
and Tussey's dollar size hand
lotion for fifty cents.
For the fascinator that truly
fascinates see the beautiful
ones at the VAN AKKEREN
KNIT SHOP across from An-
gell Hall. They also have many
beautiful shades of yarn for
that sweater you want to make,
and to solve the problem of
cold toes on these wintry nights
try their hand-knit bed socks.

The 1944 ful-year automobile license plates,
which went on sale Monday, are to be used only on

manufacturing cost, according to Secretary of State
Herman H. Dignan, left, shown above with J. I.
Herndon, Lansing manager of the Automobile Club
of Michigan. The new plates have a maroon back-
ground with white numerals. --AP Photo
