Sports Organizations To Revive
Traditional All-Campus Event
Carl Bird's Orchestra Will Be Featured

Reviving an old tradition, the wom-
en and men students of the physical
education departments, together with
the members of the M-Club, will
sponsor the Olympic Ball to be held
from 8 p.m. to midnight Wednesday,
May 29, in the League Ballroom.
Carl Bird and his twelve piece or-
chestra from Muskegon, will pro-
vide the music for the dance. The
all-campus affairs will feature a
global theme, with the League Ball-
room completely decorated. A huge
globe of the world will dominate the
Olympic Ball will be semi-formal

and will be open to the entire stu-
dent body. It is being held on the
eve of the Declaration Holiday and
late permission will be granted to
"Olympic Ball under the sponsor-
ship of the three sports organizations
Volunteer workers are needed to
serve on all committees for Olym-
pic Ball. Any student desiring to
work on a committee is asked to
telephone one of the committee
chairmen for further informa-
tion. The publicity, tickets and
decoration committees especially
need additional members.

Brilliant Colors, Suave Neutrals
Featured in Chic New Shorties

ior Summertime


T HE SHORTIE, whether it be a
simple classic, or belted with a
softer touch, is an All-American style
that makes an ideal all-purpose coat
for any wardrobes.
This versatile coat comes in many
different versions including the pilot,
mandarin, cardigan, straight, belted,
and swagger lines. The belted shortie;
which either has a drawstring belt or
is tightly tied or buckled, empha-
sizes the broad-shouldered narrow-
waisted look.
ONE OF THESE belted coats has
raglan sleeves and a cardigan
neckline. Another contrasts rich
black braid trim with soft spring
colors. These coats also can be had
with full sleeves, tightly buttoned at
the wrist, or deep armhole sleeves
either plain or with wide cuffs. The
belts on many of these coats are de-
tachable and they are equally smart
with or without the belt.
The straight shorties also have a

variety of unusual details. One good
looking coat seen recently is very full
in back with the tuxedo front and
cuffs of a contrasting color. It has
button back revers extending from a
tiny collar. Another of this style is
double breasted with slit pockets and
a convertible collar. The mandarin
style has short slits at the sides and
when trimmed with gold or silver
thread embroidery makes a beautiful
and fashionable evening coat..
MANY OF THE NEW shorties fea-
ture unusual pockets, different
looking collars, shoulder pleats, and
interesting yoke and button trim.
Checked and plaid materials are used
effectively by cutting them on the
bias in contrast with straight up and
down fabric. Bold black and white
checks are popular as are plaids and
blurred stripes. Shetland-type weave,
menswear flannel, suede cloth, wool
gabardine, and other individual tex-
tures and weaves are in demand.
Brilliant colors, tangerine, tur-
quoise, jade, scarlet, neon blue, coral,
and kelly, and the suave neutrals,
corn silk, silver web, king tan, eagle
gray, surf, white wine, and pussy-
willow are definitely in the limelight
this spring with dull and drab shades
in the background.
The length of these brief but
bright coats looks better than ever
over narrow skirts. As spring's short-
cut to smartness they seem to be here
for a long stay.
