AY 3,9 THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Decorations at 18th IFC Ball
Will Depict Waterfront Life

Decorations for this year's IFC
Ball, which will be presented from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, will trans-
form the IM Building into a pano-
rama of waterfront life.
Travel posters and pennants,
and murals of typical scenes will
decorate the foyer of the building,
while a colorful sign over the en-
trance will introduce guests to the
mood of the dance.
The usual picture-taking booths
will be specially designed to take
passport photos. Refreshments
which will be served at a stand
across from the picture booths,
will be concocted to further carry
out the waterfront theme.
THE BALLROOM itself will
suggest a small city at the edge of
the water. A ferry boat scene will

decorate the east end of the room
and a mural of the skyline at a
waterfront will cover the other
end. The bandstand will be trans-
formed into a wharf,
The booths erected by the fra-
ternity houses will constitute
one of the evening's main at-
tractions. Two fraternities will
combine their efforts in con-
structing each booth. In all,
there will be 21 booths which
will be patterned after the dives
along a waterfront community.
Electrically lighted stars sus-
pended from the ceiling will add
the finishing touches to the scene.
Tickets for the dance are now o:
sale and may be purchased
through representatives in each
fraternity.

Four Women
Take Honors
At Banquet
Scrolls citing journalistic
achievement were presented to
four Detroit women by Theta Sig-
ma Phi, honorary women's jour-
nalism fraternity at a "Ladies of
the Press Banquet," Sunday, at a
local hotel.
The honored speakers were
Helen Bower, music, drama and
book critic of the Free Press, Fran
Harris, women's editor of WWJ,
Melba Harlett, author and play-
wright, and Margaret Winthrop,
manager of Tech Advertising'
Agency and president of the De-
troit chapter of the fraternity.
* * *
"JOURNALISTIC muscle devel-
oping makes you strong on the
job," declared Miss Bower, "but it
has to come the hard way."
Advertising was advocate I by
Miss Winthrop as "the most ex-
citing writing job." Mrs. Mar-
lett, author of five novels, point-
ed out the novelist first has to
live while writing. She recom-
mended mystery novels as the
easiest start.
"There is no writing in televi-
sion, so far," Mrs. Harris said.
"The actor projects the situation
idea of the 'writer'."
President Mary Alice Cheney in-
troduced the eight initiates. They
were Ann Joan Beck, Alice Brink-
man, Mary Clements, Dorothea
Hess, Joanne Leivo, Nancy Lutton,
Dolores Palanker, and Nancy
Sayre.
Blue Team
The Blue team, with their pre-
sentation of "Deuces Wild," were
the first winners of Frosh Week-
end.
Winning with a total of 199
points to their opponents' 190, the
Blues achieved victory by a very
narrow margin. The teams were
judged on decorations, program
design, ticket design, dues collect-
ed, floorshow and the cost of the
dance presentation.
Judges of the dances were Miss
Muriel Efty, house director of
Stockwell Hall; Miss Wilma Ste-
ketee, assistant business manager
of the League and James Jans,
president of the Student Legisla-
ture.

By JEAN RUSS
Coeds can take a deep sigh of
relief when they shop for spring
cottons to suit the hot weather
ahead in Ann Arbor because prices
in general are one to two dollars
lower than last year.
Wholesaler and retailer are tak-
ing less profits on individual styles
than last year to increase business.

the last few months due to a gen-
eral tightening up in all indus-
tries.
This year shoppers will get more
than their money in the way of
styling and fabrics because of
technical advances which are be-
ginning to affect the whole gar-
ment industry.
THE WIDESPREAD fallacy, ac-
credited to the influence of the
Paris designer Dior, that skirt
lengths were going up has proved
completely false in all price lines.
Skirts on all dresses, including
those for casual wear with flat
heeled shoes, will remain 12 to 13
inches from the ground. Some lines
are featuring hems 11 inches from
the ground.
Most retailers seem to feel
that the- proper length is not
that which fashion in its whim-
sical way is dictating at the mo-
ment, but a length which is
suited to individual proportions.
Skirt lengths on all dresses, re-
gardless of size, are about the
same.
Favorable reaction has greeted
the advent of the full skirt in all
price ranges. New cap sleeves,
which are set in, instead of being
made in one piece with the shoul-
der, are being popularized.
ENSEMBLES HAVE taken the
spotlight in sports clothes. Shorts,
skirt, bra, and hat can be bought
separately in the same fabric. Fine
detailing is conspicuous i' all
styles.
One of the reasons for the
trend towards mix and match-
ing summer separates is that
it enables the buyer in the mid-
dle-class price brackets to put
her own samp of originality on
pieces which are made more
cheaply through mass produc-
tion.
Fabrics which have not been
seen since 1940 are returning to
the market. Egyptian cottons,
Swiss-embroidered organdy and
cotton brocades have returned to
the spotlight. Irridescent cham-
brays, dotted swiss, and a new
fabric of rayon, which does not
need to be ironed, called piquette,
are featured.
Colors which are most popular
this year are all shades of purple
from mauve to plum, sunny hues
from daffodil to dark gold, and
pristine white. Black will be fea-
tured toward the end of summer.
All the pastels have proved again
to be the "best sellers."
