Spring finally made her Ann Arbor debut this year following the
slowly rising white curtain of winter and judging from student
response her performance was a hit.
It didn't take us long to get into the show crowding the steps
of Angell Hall on those rare days when it was warm enough to sit
outside between classes. Students fill the front of the building in a
manner which makes the entrance look like Grand Central station
during the holiday rush.
A resort atmosphere encircled our dorm as most of, us
prepare, to become bare-legged sunbathers on our trips South
during Spring vacation. Some of the coeds will be fashionably
attired in the new hour glass bathing suits which are boned to
the hipsand then flair out into baggy bloomers.
As you can imagine, a large portion of our allowance went for
those clever sunning aids. With all the unusual sunglasses on the
market, we just couldn't get along with last year's pair. One that
particularly struck my eye probably derived its origin from the rocket
adventure stories as one would expect the men from Mars to wear
Then we had to stock up on sun tan oils, creanms, and lotions to
enter into the latest controversy concerning the values of different
With books in hand we finally made our trip to the famed
arboretum. Now we know why everyone talks about that place.
Looking out over a span of land that stretches for miles, one
can see patches of violets, winding streams and odd sized hills
being admired by picnicking couples.
During the warm evenings or after classes everyone went off
their diets and budgets to consume doubledip ice-cream cones. This
makes me all the more anxious to get home and consume some of
those good Wisconsin brands.
Who says the Michigan cded is sloppily dressed? While we don't
go in for the latest Paris fads advocated by some of the stylish fashion
magazines, as you can see from the snapshots, many of the ideas
being featured this spring found their place in our wardrobes.
COATS SANCTIONED-Besides the ever popular belted-shorties and fitted wraps, closets this year
will be filled with full-length dusters and coats. For her wardrobe Peggy Perkins has selected a full-
length Motor Coat which has adjustable sleeves. Seen entering the car, Carol Goldshire has on a
' pleated topper that will make its first appearance on the Easter Parade this year.
MERMAIDS-Bathing suits soon to be worn outdoors while sunbathing were recently donned by
Marge Cook, Marilyn Miller and Yvonne Cousins as they took advantage of the Union Pool.
SPRING FORMALS-Even with a slight drizzle marring the evening, coeds donned their new spring
formals to attend the annual Assembly Ball held the first weekend in March in the League. Taking
a breather from the crowded dance floor Sandy Stolorow, Sandy Norian, Nancy Dodick, Ruth
Finger, and Stuart Friedman gathered around the piano to hear Frank Norman play.
