WITH SKIRTS LENGTHENED, hips padded and coats by Omar
the tent maker, thus hoping to have achieved the "New Look,"
coeds have returned en masse to Ann Arbor.
The "New Look" is most noticeable on campus in the longei
skirts. These skirts are either slim and straight with fly-fronts, side
slits and other such details, or they are fully pleated or circular,
cut on the bias.
To be completely the latest fashion the skirts range anywhere
from ankle length to 14 inches above the floor. Complications
have already arisen from the new longer length. Stepping up high
curbs and getting in and out of buses, streetcars and cars has
proved hazardous in the long straight skirts.
But full skirts also have their disadvantages. A high wind spells
disaster to the coed wearing a full skirt, while those cut on the bias
have a tendency to sag around the hemline creating a rippled effect.
ON THE TALL, slim, fashion-model type of woman longer skirts,
if not too extreme, are definitely attractive. But on the shorter
coeds the long skirts make for odd appearances.
Another feature of the "New Look" is the suit jacket with padded
hips. Women formerly spent many a grueling hour at hip reducing
exercises and massages. Now, with padded hips in high fashion,
Swedish masseuses are threatened with extinction.
The hour glass figure has returned, accentuating hips and
wasp waists. Besides hip-padding fashion experts have re-intro-
duced the old-fashioned'4boned corset, much to the discomfort
of fashion-minded women.
New coats have also been designed for the tall woman, as are
most styles. Long, with full backs and hoods, they create a tent-
like impression, resembling something from Act 1, scene 1 of Macbeth.
THE "OLD LOOK" is also in evidence. Coeds who purchased that
new college wardrobe long ago now sport a tell-tale line around
the hems where skirts have been let down.

Managers will meet at 5 p.m. to-
morrow in the W.A.B.
Every dormitary, League house
and sorority house must be repre-
sented. If a regular manager has
not been elected, tentative repre-
sentatives should attend.
All WAA club activities will be
explained at the meeting and the
new League House zoning will be
announced. Changes in the sys-
tem of awarding the participation
cup on points will be discussed.
Every house will be asked to
hand in a time preference for the
volleyball tournament to begin
Monday. The time choices are:
Monday through Friday at 5 p.m.,
7:20 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. Each
team will be required to have a
timer or a scorer or both to be
eligible for the tournament.
Ann Arbor women and those liv-
ing in private homes should report
to the athletic office in Barbour
Gymnasium before Thursday to
be placed on a team.
The formula for keeping hair-
brushes stiff and in good condi-
tion is to wash them frequently
and rinse them in extremely hot
