Ticket Sales To Begin
For Annual JGP Production
By NAN TAYLOR
"Get a horse . .."
Believe me, I wish that I had had one last Friday.
I WAS GOING into Detroit that afternoon, so promptly at 3:20'
I was standing in front of the Union with my ticket in my hand.
The man at the bus terminal had assured me that it took only
two minutes for the bys'to come'from the terminal to the Union,
but at 3:30 I was still waiting out those two minutes.
What seemed like an age later, the bus hove into view, and there
was a general mad scramble to be first in line. (There were now
twenty-five people waiting) when the driver opened the door-not
that it mattered. Ae only opened it wide enough to say, "Another bus
in five minutes."
"Five minutes." HA! I had heard that one befoje. Of course,
if the bus company has a special system for counting five minutes as
one, then it was only five minutes.

THE EUROPEAN LOOK:
Tour To Offer' Visits to Dior, Fath Houses
By JO KETELHUT
A fashion tour of Europe, de-
signed to bring students and oth-
ers who are interested in fashion
careers into intimate contact with
the greatest designers and coutur-
iers in the world today, will be
conducted this summer.
Fashion will be studied at the
most celebrated establishments in
Paris, England, Vienna and Rome
on this trip, which is being spon-
sored for the second year in suc-
cession by Travel and Study Inc.
* * *
AUTUMN and winter styles of
the 1951-52 season will be seen in
Paris by the group.
There will also be visits to
such famous houses as Dior,
Fath, Schiaparelli, J a c q u e s
'Griffe, Alex Maguy and Pierre
Baldwin, with discussions and
illustrations of the dominant

theme of a particular season
Millinery, jewelery, perfume and
accessory houses will complete the
program of visits in Paris.
* * *
IN ROME, the group will be
given an insight into the histori-
cal development of design and
dress through the art treasures of
the Latin and Renaissance civili-
zations, in addition to viewing the
foremost conturier establishments.
After Florence and Venice,
the silk mills of Como will pro-
vide a natural transition to the
Woolens and. sport clothes will
be accented on the trip to Eng-
land. London's department stores
and exclusive retail shops will,
facilitate a comparative study of
American and European retailing,
buying and sales techniques.
IN VIENNA, the main empha-
sis will be on the autumn collec-
tions, winter sports and ski out-
fits, leather goods and costume
To see costume on the march,
the group will attend opera,
theater, concert and ballet per-
formances in the various cities
They will see the major art and
music festivals in Europe and the
special ceremonies connected with
the Festival of Britain and the
2000th Anniversary of Paris.
* * *
SOME TIME will also be spent
at a French resort center.
Coeds who are interested in
advertising, designing, buying
for stores or managing an ap-
pearal or accessory shop will
have an opportunity to gain
valuable knowledge of the fash-
ion world on the trip.
Women who are especially in-
terested in evening clothes and
suits will find the visits to the
Dior and Fath Houses most profit-
able. The exotic, extreme, popu-
lar and most recently-styled hats
will be the main attraction at the
House of Schiaparelli in Paris.

Finally another bus came along, and this one opened the door
all the way. Picking up my suitcase, I stepped confidently forward'
to hear, "Sorry only room for two," and to be practically trampled by
two men who dashed by with,"We have to catch a train.''
* * * *
On the cheery note of "another bus soon," we were left standing
This time I wasn't going to be fooled, so I picked up my suit-
case and started for the taxi stand. I was going to go to the bus
station and be sure of a seat. My frozen feet made it slow going,
and I reached a cab just in time to see a bus stop in front of the
Union and pick up everyone who was waiting there.
"Oh, well," I rationalized, "they probably won't get seats."
* * * *
Nothing more could go wrong I was sure, but by this time I should
have known better. When I got to the station, I found that I didn't
have my taxi credit card, and since it was B.A. day (before allowance)
I didn't have enough to pay for the cab.
I finally succeeded in convincing the driver that I was who I
said I was, and he agreed to accept my signature on a credit slip
I think the thing that swayed him was the fact that I agreed to
pay interest on the forty cents.
At last I trundled onto the bus, and fell into a seat. I thought it
would be fun to pass the time by knitting, so I took out my needles
and yarn and began. Going around a bend the bus lurched, and in
the process I found that I had lost a knitting needle.
* * ** *
After a futile search, which caused a mild confusion, I gave it up
as a bad job, and settled back to sleep. I was just dozing off when I
heard someone sit down next to me. This was followed by a loud
shriek by the newcomer and a hasty and angry departure to another
seat. She had found my knitting needle.
At the next stop someone else took over the seat next to one,
and after five minutes I wished that I had put a dozen knitting
needles there. This gentleman? lit what I thought was a cigar,
but which I soon discovered was a combination of old rope and
corn silk that had been aged in a brine of rotten eggs.
At last I heard the driver calling my stop and cutting my way
through the blue fog, I stumbled toward the door. Staggering out
into the fresh air, I looked around for my dad and the car, but-
no dad and no car.
I hadn't long to wonder what had happened. In answer to my
phone call, I got, "The car is in the garage being repaired. You'll have
to take a bus. Hope you don't mind."

Jewelers recommend that
watches be wound in the morning
rather than the evening for two
reasons: the watch appreciates
being wound regularly, and the
morning is apt to provide a more
regular time for it. Another rea-
son is to avoid a change of tem-
perature which is apt to break
