'Jazz Age' Styles


"At ease!" is the-fashion order
this fall, for clothes have reverted
back to the loose and relaxed styles
of the roaring twenties.
Sheaths aren't so "sheathy."
Suits have unbuttoned their jack-
ets. The new look is one of casual
comfort, so right for campus life.
Bulky Sweters...
Sweaters, too, are bulkier and
less form-fitting. Big news is the
Shetland, a heavy yarn named forj
its place of origin, the Shetland
Islands. These sweaters run the
gamut of the color wheel in shades,
and relax comfortably around the
hips in the new long look.
Even necklaces are in keeping
with the trend set by the flapper
girl. Ropes of beads-30 or even
90 inches in length -are being
swung around the necks of many
fashion-conscious coeds this sea-
Pleated Skirts ...
The pleats that Grandma loved
are back again, too. Accordion
pleats. Knife pleats. Box pleats.
Take your pick; they're all being,
featured in the smartest skirts and
For that all-out "twenty-three-
skidoo" look, try a raccoon coat.
Used ones that have been cleaned,
glazed and relined are available
at many stores, and will provide
the warm answer to cold Ann
Arbor winters.
Gay Plaids ...
Plaids, too, are adding gayety
to this season's wardrobes. Whe-
ther your choice is a big bold Tar-
tan so right for skirts, or a small
check to add luster to a "dressy"
dress, you're sure to find the right
one for you.
You should be anything but an-
gry if you look in your closet and
"see red," f or red is being pro-
claimed as "the" color this season.
From the rosy pink shades of
pledge-formal pretties to the
bright orange shades of campus
costumes, red is being featured in
every hue for you.
Jazz Societ .. .
The first meeting of the Mod-
ern Jazz Society will be held at
8 p.mi. in the Union on Sunday,
Oct. 13.
The club plans to bring a fa-
mous name jazz group to campus.
Lectures by professors of the Uni-
versity Music School are on their
agenda for this semester.
Interested persons may contact
William, Hoffa at Extension 207
in South Quad for further infor-
mation about the organization.

Swim Class
Now Open
To Beginners
Pool Offers Fun for
Employees, Alumni,
Coeds; Faculty Groups
The Women's Physical Educa-
tion Department is initiating a
swimming instruction program
for upperclassmen who do not
know how to swim.
The class will meet once a week
on an informal, elective basis for.
about half an hour.
Miss Fritzie Gareis, associate
supervisor in the department, said,
that 5:10 p.m. Tuesday, OctobeV
8, has been tentatively set as the
time for the class. If this time
proves to be inconvenient for the
majority of women interested, the
time may be changed to Friday
afternoons after classes or anoth-
er suitable time.
Additional information can be
obtained at the Women's. Pool or
office 15 in Barbour Gymnasium.
Miss Gareis encourages all women
to inquire and indicate the time
that is best for them.
Water Wonderland
"It is everyone's moral respon-
sibility to learn to swim," stated
Miss Gareis. "It's a shame," she
added, "that in this water won-
derland' there is such a high rate
of non-swimmer drownings."
Towels and suits will be pro-
vided for the students, who are
requested to bring their own caps.
There is no charge for the les-
sons, which will be taught by a
member of the physical education
Women students, co-ed groups,
faculty, grad students, employees,
and alumni already able to swim
are invited to make use of the
pool's facilities at regularly sched-
uled times.
