Cabaret Booth
Is Open Today
Sophomore Coeds May Sign
For Various Committee Posts
A booth will be open from 1 p.m.
to 5:30 p.m. today and tomorrow in
the League for all sophomore women
who wish to sign up for work on
Soph. Cabaret committees.
Coeds who have already registered
for committee work do not need to
do so again. The Cabaret booth is
only for those women who are in-
terested in signing up for a commit-
tee, but who have not as yet done so.
There are several committees
which need members and every
sphomore woman is urged to sup-
port this social function of the Class
of '47.
Among the committees for which
coeds may sign up are the finance,
publicity, poster, skit, ticket and dec-
or-tion committees. Other important
committees are the floor show, script
and dance committees. Working in
close cooperation with these are the
costume and props committee.
Cabaret committees also include
those of patrons, food, hostesses and
eligibility. All women working on a
committee must present an eligibility
card. Further information may be
obtained at the League booth.

Supremacy Is
Designers' Aim
With Paris looming again as a pos-
sible rival to the newly established
fashion centers of New York and
Hollywood, American designers are
striving this spring to maintain their
supremacy in the fashion world.
New trends evidenced in the spring
collections are probably more radical
than in any previous season, and
their variety promises to satisfy ev-
ery woman.
There is no in-between in silhouets.
Extreme fullness, or slim straight
lines are equally good and are some-
times combined into one ensemble.
Full cape sleeves are used with cinch-
ed-in waists, and the perennial dirndl
has been modified into front full-
ness or draping.
Waistlines Are Accentuated
Tiny waistlines are accentuated
with corselet waists, some even lac-
ing in the manner of peasant dres-
ses. Shirred or flared peplums serve
to whittle waistlines also, and never
has the peplum enjoyed the hey-day
it does today.
Sleeves vary from narrow caps to
full pleats and drapes. Huge flow-
ing bows are perched on shoulder,
hip, and neckline, and clever handl-
ing of materials gives the illusion of
straightness, and the feeling of full-
ness and ease in many dresses.
Jackets are every length, so just
pick the one most flattering to you.
The long close fitting tunic, some-
times tiered, as well as the long fit-
ted pullover, are naturals for lengthy
girls. But short gals need not feel
forgotten, for the waistcoat suits,
eton jackets, and short yoked jack-
ets make them look as willowy as a
Coats of All Types
Coats, like jackets, are of every
conceivable type. Dressmaker coats
have to be scrutinized to tell them
from dresses, and the three quarter
length coat is good for still another
season. Greatcoats and trench coats
are done in soft pastel fleeces for
To top it all off, hats are hair cov-
ering and snug, but vary from the
flat, brow-hugging look to the tow-
ering, but still brow-hugging high
America nwomen have no cause to
complain of fashion monotony or lack
of originality this season. The new
spring collection will make it diffi-
cult for Paris to ever compete again
with American clothes, designed for
American women.

Pong Tourney

'No Bid'Need Not Mean Heartbreak

_)URING the last two weeks
hundreds of independent co-
eds have been going to the Pan-
hellenic office in the League to re-
ceive invitations to sorority par-
ties. Dormitory telephone lines
have been crowded with calls ac-
cepting and declining these invita-
tions. Sorority members have been
struggling to keep up with count-
less meetings, parties, "hash" ses-
sions and class assignments. Rush-
ing at the University of Michigan
is in full swing and approximately
2,000 coeds are directly involved.
Stories in The Daily, talks by
house mothers, Panhellenic lectures
and bull sessions tend to emphasize
rushing to such an extent that even
freshmen who never heard of the
supposedly famous Greek letter
combinations before coming to col-
lege, are greatly impressed with the
vast significance of it all. Out of
all this emphasis conc a great many
erroneous ideas about the import-
ance of belonging to or not belong-
ing to a sorority. These ideas nur-
ture the unnecessary friction that
sometimes arises between sorority
members and rushees who are not
pledged, and lead to the complete-
ly ridiculous heartbreak that some
times succeeds a "no bid."
