'U' Students To Vacation
- f -

Throughout World'

Italy, Africa
To Be Visited
By Travelers
Via boat, plane, bike and thumb,
determined and enthusiastic Uni-
versity students will take advan-
tage of a three-month vacation
period to see more of the world.
While Uncle Sam has refused
to allow certain men of draft age
out of the country, he has fostered
the travel plans of NROTC stu-
dents with his free compulsory
cruises to Scotland, Norway and
South America.
ON THE OTHER hand, many
ROTC camps will be in the states
of Georgia, Texas, New Mexico and
New Jersey.
While the bulk of students in-
tend to take the commercially
sponsored college tours, others
will spend the summer visiting
Such is the case with Pieter
Thomassen, '54, and Don McClel-
land, '54, who will visit relatives
in the Netherlands and Belgium.
McClelland will also tour Scotland
and England.
* * *
ALASKA, the "land of oppor-.
. tunity," will be the destination of
one of the Daily editors, Mike
Wolff, '54, who will work in the
Yukon this summer.
Sandy Robertson, president of
the Business Administration
School senior class, will be a
member of the Dr. Rancho New-
berry Expedition to South Afri-
ca. Explorations will take this
group to Liberia and down the
gold and ivory coast to Cape-
Although Dorothy Myers, '55,
claims she can't boil an egg, she
still hopes to land a job as a cook
on a liner cruising the Carribean.
Another boat job on a freighter
going to Bermuda has been off-
ered Ed Smith '54.
* * *
AN EXPERIENCED - traveler,
Mil Prayor,.'55, and his twin broth-
er will hitchhike to Mexico where
they hope to earn enough money
to return to this country in a more
leisurely fashion. Pryor has al-
ready been to Europe twice.

Cotton, Wool
Dress Sets
Matching Ensembles
Will Aid Versatility
To Summer Fashions
Whatever the weather may be,
a cheerful cotton dress with a
matching sweater will come in
Gay print forms a border on
the sweater and makes a match-
ing ensemble. Short bat-wing
shrugs are a bright contrast to
the sleeveless cotton dress.
These dresses are plain and
simply-tailored. The prints all
suggest a coolness that is not ex-
pected this summer. For warm
days the dress may be worn alone
and for cool nights the sweater
makes a handy addition.
Many local stores dye sweaters
to match colors that occur in the
Cottons that go well with sweat-
ers are sleeveless and have full
skirts, and are as cool to look
at as they are to wear.
For formal wear there is nothing
better than a tailored topper.
These toppers have semi-full
backs with long sleeves.
The rage in toppers is pointing
directly to a light, dainty coral.
Coral contrasts well with the light
pastel colors of blue, green, tan
and white.
The best colors for summer wear
in toppers are pale pastels. These
blend easily with any colored cot-
ton dress.
Sweaters are also worn with
strapless dresses. When the sun
goes down the time comes for
women to don a sweater to keep
them comfortable for cool nights.
Shawls go well with cotton
dressesand can be held securely
by fastening a belt over them. If
the weather is too warm they may
be carried loosely on an arm.
The newest thing for formal
wear is a beaded sweater. Stores
are showing a black cashmere
sweater with tiny pearls stitched
on the bands iii front with a tiny
collar of pearls.
The eternal triangle in the
latest fashions is a triangular linen
scarf trimmed with fur. It is
featured in a light beige and pink.
For a coat which fits nicely over
a slim, straight-skirted cotton, the
new, modern balloon jacket is de-

Quick-drying, Color-fast Materials
To Improve Bathing Suit Fashions


--Daiy--Don Carnpe
WHEELING ABROAD-Many students at the University will take their bicycles with them when
they cross the Atlantic and tour such countries as Norway, Sweden and Belgium under a program
designed for hostelers. In the above picture Bert Shapero, who will tour the continent, tries out his
bike with Joan Karabelnick.

Both active swimmers and coeds
who "hang their clothes on a
hickory limb but don't go near
the water" will find a large selec-
tion of bathing suits available irn
local stores.
Fashioned in a large variety of
fabrics, most of the suits are priced
to fit the budget of the college
NYLON ACETATE, which dries
quickly and keeps its shape, is
being widely used for swim suits.
Available in a variety of pastel
colors, one suit features contrast-
ing stitching and convertible
straps, making the suit adaptable
for swimming or sunning.
Cotton everglaze is another of
the bathing suit manufacturers'
most popular fabric choices.
Following a fashion set last year,
many of these suits are strapless,
with scalloped necklines and boy
shorts. "Step" shorts and bloomers
are also featured on many of the
"creations for mermaids."

MOVING BACK in history -to
the early '20's, fashion designers
have re-introduced the one-piece
knitted wool bathing suits to the
These creations, which may
remind University coeds of "that
favorite tank suit from elemen-
tary swimming class," have rib-
bed waistlines for figure flat-
Coeds will be garbed to brave
the cold waves in true nautical
fashion in a middy suit of lastex
faille. The strapless suit is em-
broidered, with deep-sea pockets
and contrasting collar.
ONE BATHING suit "sure to at-
tract attention" is flamenco pink
in color with polka-dots and a
shirred bodice. Another in the
same color is heart-topped, bloom-
er-bottomed and embroidered.
Many otherwise plain suits
have been adorned with trim-
ming, giving the "individual
Glazed cotton straw trim is fea-
tured on one nylon-acetate-laton
swimming creation.

THE QUESTION of "button,
button, who's got the button" is
readily solved by the coed wearing

a halter-necked nylon maillot suit
trimmed with bottons of decreas-
ing sizes.
Pearls and brilliants adorn
another suit, fashioned in dress-
maker style, which is* intended
for use primarily by coeds seek-
ing a sun tan and not for women
attempting to break records in
the Austrailian crawl.
Embroidered wing* on the hip-
line of an orlon boucle suit will
enable women to become "social
butterflies" on the beaches and at
the swimming pools this summer.
* * *
HARKING BACK to Greecian
styles, one suit featured nationally
is "sculptured" with a full, per-
manently knife-pleated skirt, cin-
ched by a patent leather belt. This
suit, too, is more appropriate for
sunning than swimming.
Coeds looking for suits that
will be of very practical use will
find combination playsuit-bath-
ing suit fashions in the stores.
These suits may be worn at the
beaches or for back-yard sun-

white cotton, outlined in black em-
broidery, are emphasized on a

Ribboned panels and formal
pleats provide accents for other
swim suits. Many of these have
detachable skirts, which can be
"whipped" on for dancing or
discarded for a plunge into the

The handy handkerchief, say
fashion experts, is a faithful

most any need as well as add a

perts have predicted.
New color-fast dyes,. in prac-
tically any conceiveable hue, have
been developed which will make it
possible for coeds to wear favorite

Graduation Gifts
Show Thoughtful,
Useful Selection
Coeds and men will soon face
the problem of what to choose for
a graduation gift.
The trend is toward more prac-
tical thoughfulness in the choice,
and the final decision should de-
pend largely on the future plans
of the individual, it is suggested.
The woman who intends to be
married in the coming year will
welcome a gift of silver in the pat-
tern of her choice. The coed,
however, who is thinking more in
terms of a business career for her
future would probably enjoy a
fashionable watch, or a ring to
replace her worn high school ring.
Insignia rings of the University
are featured around graduation
times in many local jewelry stores.
Useful items can be found in a
wide price range; to suit the oc-
casion. Wallets to hold first pay
checks or new driver's licenses and
compacts to contribute to better
grooming, will always be welcome.
A leather travel clock is often
a badly needed replacement for the
worn old alarm clock which has
sounded the call during college
In the case of gifts for men, a
knowledge of his future plans is
also essential, if something is to
be selected that he will really en-
If he is scheduled to enter the
armedservices in the nearfuture,
a different type of watch is called
for than if he plans to go into
a business career or continue his
Personal jewelry is a good way
to emphasize the importance of a
well-groomed, business-like ap-
pearance in new surroundings.
Cuff-links, a tie holder or match-
ing tie and collar pins are suitable


Don Messersmith will be a
tour leader for American Youth
Hostelers this summer in Swe-
den, Belgium and France. The
group he is leading will include
Shirley Seegmiller and students
from Michigan State College,
Wayne University, and the Uni-
versity of Toledo.
All thoughts now center on Italy
and Paris for five members of Phi
Sigma Delta fraternity, Al Gen-,
delman, '53, Pete Katz, '55, Ted
Andur, '55, Bob Paley, '55, and
Dave Wilson, '54, who will make a
private tour.

"IT ALL happened over a bridge
table," replied Alice Seitzman, '56,
when asked howshe decided to go
to Europe. Between bids Miss
Seitzman and her partner both
expressed a burning desire tobvis-
it the continent and before the
game was over the decision had
been reached.
Studies will occupy the tine

of many University students this
vacation period. While Mary
