Print Dresses
Take Spotlight
For Springtime
Shops Will Feature
Variety of Fabrics
In Unusual Patterns
If fashion magazines, dress
shops and pattern books are any
indication, spring is just around
the corner.
Among the many recent show-
ings of feminine fashions are gay
print dresses, a welcome change
from winter woolens.
* * *
IF TALENTED, one can make a
new print dress. There are all
kinds of prints to choose from
- flecks, penline, spatterdash,
squares, designs and even dots
These unusual designs are of-
fered in a variety of fabrics.
Latest patterns are now avail-
able, and if one likes, variations
can be added.
Whether making or, buying
ready-made, the print dresses for
this spring promise to be bright,
colorful, and flattering.
BRILLIANT squares on silk'
shantung echo the clean lines of
a two-piece suit, dress with its
wedge-shaped neckline and double
breasted closing.
Pen-line print is pretty in a
sophisticated way. Tiny sleeves
are cut in one with bodice and
' ,yokes. A spatterdash print is
wonderfuly effective for a soft
afternoon dress with the new cape
collar. Polka dots are very young
and gay when accented with
A small geometric print is being
shown in many pattern magazines
with a deep U-neckline. There is
shirring on bodice and hips.

Forestry Club
To Give Dance
Costumed Couples
To Be Casually Clad
Blue jeans and plaid shirts will
steal the spotlight at the Forestry
Club's annual Paul Bunyan "For-
mal" to be held from 9 p.m. to 1
a.m. Saturday in Waterman and
Barbour Gymnasiums.
At this strictly informal "for-
mai" casually costumed couples
will dance to the music of Paul
Lavoie and his orchestra amidst
an atmosphere of red pines im-
ported from the Forestry School's
woods near Portage Lake.
The forest also provided all the
lumber used in the construction
of the "longest bar in Ann Arbor"
which has been built as a replica
of the early saloons which were
frequented by lumberjacks in the
days of old.
techniques used in obtaining the
materials for this construction will
be given during the intermission
when sawing contests will be held
between three couples selected
from the audience. All contestants
will be presented with suitable
awards for their efforts.
Intermission entertainment
will also feature a game of
"Guth or Consequences" in
which a forester by the name of
Guth will have the starring role.
Foresters, as well as other stu-
dents, enjoy these displays of
might and talent and, thus, they
will have strived to keep alive the
tall tales of Paul Bunyan and his
legendary power.

Peak by piling rocks around his
pike pole and built Niagara Falls
for a shower bath.
Speaking of water, it is said
that one of Paul's water wa-
gons sprung a leak and formed
the Mississippi River, and one
day, when he was feeling par-
ticularly sad, his tears formed
the Great Salt Lake.
Another time, he decided that'
a state similar to Texas should
border the Gulf of Mexico, so he
proceeded to toss rocks across the
water and form the state of Flo-

Survey Proves
Men Illiterates
Sometimes the truth hurts, es-
pecially when it comes out that in
most countries a great majority of
illiterates are women.
A surveyconducted by the UN
commission on the status of wom-
en has disclosed such statistics.
* * *
IT HAS BEEN found that in
all countries of the world except
Canada, Finland, Sweden and the
United States, there are more il-
literatesmamong women than
among men.
In some countries there are
four times as many boys as
girls in school. Two UN agen-
cies are now attempting to help
correct these inequities.
The UN Economic and Social
council has asked UNESCO to aid
in developing education programs
in under-developed countries and
adult, education for women who
were denied educational oppor-
* * *
THE COUNCIL also asked the
International Labor Organization
to develop vocational guidance
and technical training for wom-
en and to attempt to encourage
the social advancement of women.
There a r e many factors
which contribute to the differ-
ence in literacy. One factor is
the traditional view that mar-
riage is the primary purpose of
a woman's life and therefore
her education is brought to an
Another reason for the difference
is that women are kept too busy
with domestic tasks. Often more
emphasis is put on the education
of men because of the job com-
petition in most countries. There
is resentment when women enter
into this keen competition.

Students are not immune to the
problem of trying to adjust a
limited budget to rising expenses,

the Women's Division of the In-
stitute of Life Insurance has re-
Like everyone else, students are
feeling the pinch of rising costs.
The survey indicates that tuition
in a group of private colleges has
increased by more than $200 a
year between 1937 and 1949.
* * *
IN ADDITION to tuition, almost
everything else is becoming more
expensive, including fees, living
costs, clothes, transportation and
One life insurance company
has estimated the total cost of a
college education as high as
$2200 a year, depending on tui-
tion costs, fees and the location
of the college.
In an attempt to balance their
budgets, more students are re-
ported to be seeking scholarships,
hunting for part-time jobs and
applying for student loans.

The institute reporting the sur-
vey was not ready to blame the
slight decline in enrollment in
colleges and universities this year
on the higher cost of education.
Other factors, they say, may al-
so be responsible for the enroll-
ment drop-off. There are fewer
G.I. students receiving govern-
ment funds this year, more oppor-
tunities for full-time employment
and more men entering or expect-
ing to enter the armed services.
