Simplicity in every type of apparel
ranging from the very formal evening
dress to the sporty campus model has
been decreed as the keynote to the
sporty campus model has been de-
creed as the keynote of fall fashions
with reverberations of the days of
1926 and '27 being re-echoed in day-
time skirts hanging 12 to 15 inches
from the ground.
A large wardrobe is no longer neces-
sary for the well-dressed University
woman. Several sets of easily change-
able collars and saucy bows make it
possible for one dress to fill the place
of several. Some of the most attrac-
tive fall collars are made with dainty
ling6rie trim.
Plum, mulberry and wine colors

headlined as the center of attention
for early wear at school. One of the

Huge Forest Fires
Sweep. Northwest
SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 14. - (P) -
Huge forest fires roared out of control
in the Pacific Northwest today while
others threatened to break out of
Montana, Idaho and Oregon saw
the region's-worst blazes, with at least
three major conflagrations. In Wyo-
ming, Utah and Washington timber

'colored suede, a matching sweater,
and a heather mixture skirt. The
sweater is fashioned with a severe
neckline, relieved only by a tie. The
swagger coat can be nicely worn to
complete other ensembles, and is
especially good when combined with
green wool.
A wardrobe isn't complete without
at least one knitted dress for the semi-
chilly days which are so prevalent.
When nothing else seems just right,
it will always fit in, giving just the
right satisfaction for most any day-
time occasion. Several shops are dis-
playing models with warm, lacy yokes,
and the tie-ends and buckle of spar-
kling crystal. The rainy day prob-
lem is settled with a dark boucle
trimmed with a gay belt.
Mentioning rainy days brings an
absolute essential into view -a rain
coat. One of- the most practical as
well as smart models is a plaid coat
finished with a waist-length cape.
The coat has no sleeves in it, mak-
ing it possible to wear a suit or heavy
coat underneath on cool days while
it is long enough to cover books and
fully protect the wearer.
With the opening of school comes
the heavy sorority rushing. Here
again the dressy knitted frock can be
worn as well as a tailored crepe dress
to the initial teas and the early din-
A jacketed formal will rank first
place in any wardrobe. With the
jacket, it can be worn to the formal
dinners, thus serving the purpose
of a dinner gown and later a formal
for dancing. Ancient Greece, orig-
inating the pleated sleeves in the
jacket, is returning to the very mod-
ern Ann Arbor of 1935. In this same
model, the classic style is continued
in the V-decolletage. The evening
dress is of the palest of icy-blue satins
flowing gracefully into a short train.
The dress is completed with bottons
of matching material running up the
Accessories are important in fin-
ishing the outfit. It is well to choose
one predominant color scheme for the
entire wardrobe in order to be able
to use the same accessories with the
various suits and dresses.
The low heeled suede shoe will re-
main the most prominent on campus
with the high heeled tie and straps
taking first place for ordinary dinner
and evening wear.
New System Of

of these three larger fields of study.
For example: A student who is
primarily interested in scientific pur-
suits may, after completing in his
first two years at Michigan a total of
60 hours with at least 60 honor points,
proceed to concentrate in Group II
(Science) or he might select a depart-
ment in the group (such as Physics,
for instance, if he is more interested
in Physics than in a more sweeping
survey of all the sciences.)
Each student's credit for gradua-
tion, comprising his entire course of
study in all four years at the Uni-
versity, must include not less than 30
hours study in his department of con-
centration, or not less than 60 hours
of study in his division of concentra-
tion, if he chooses the latter.
Minimum of 120 Hours
It should be carefully noted that if
the student selects a division of con-
centration, which is a field of larger
scope than a department, he must
take 60 hours in that division, rather
than 30, which is all that is required
in the department of concentration.

Play Production
Windt Is Director
Spring Dramatic Season
Brings Noted American
Actors Here
Opportunities for taking part in
student productions rivalling those
of experienced little theatre group
as well as for viewing come of the
best of modern drama as presented
by the Spring Dramatic Season is
offered to the dramatically-inclined
student at Michigan.
The University Play Production
grcup, directed by Valent ine B.
Windt, is an integral part of the
University curriculum, and students
enirolled in this department are
taugh every phase of stage work,
including acting, costuming, direct-
ing, and stage designing. Although
the courses are not open to fresh-
men, any student with sophomore
standing may be admitted to the de-
Play Production gives about seven
plays annually, each of different type,
in order to give the student a more
varied education in dramatic work.
In interest the plays presented range
from light comedies to Shakespearean
drama. Last year the roster of plays
included Elmer Rice's Pulitzer Prize
drama, "Street Scene," George S
Kaufman's and Edna Ferber's comedy
"The Royal Family," Suttan Vane's
unusual mystery drama, "Outward
Bound," the operettas, "Iolanthe,
and "A Midsummer Night's Dream,"
the French satire, "Dr. Knock," and
Martinez-Sierra's religious play, "The
Kingdom of God."
Dancing, Music, Combined
During the past few years the de-
partment has attempted to correlate
education in acting with music and
dancing, and Play Production has
combined with the School -of Music
in presenting several operettas. In
addition, students enrolled in Play
Production are required to take in-
struction in rhythms under the di-
rection of Miss Emily White of the
department of physical education for
women, and several interesting dance
recitals have also been given by stu-
detsof his deartment. In "A
]Midsummer Night's Dream," the act-
ing was in charge of Mr. Windt and
his classes, while the School of Music
faculty directed the music, and spec-
ial dance choruses were trained for
the production by Miss White. This
year, an even more ambitious pro-
gram is being planned for the co-
operation of the three departments.
The Laboratory theatre of Play
Production is used for all classes in
acting and directing, and all the sets
for the plays are built there, al-
though the plays are always pro-
duce din the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre of the League.
For those who have no interest in
taking part in plays, but who enjoy
seeing professional productions, the
Spring Dramatic Season directed by
Robert Henderson is of interest. Each
spring Mr. Henderson brings to Ann
Arbor some of the best plays of the
year, selecting his casts from amng
the best American actors.
Nazimova Starred
This year the plays produced in
the Dramatic Season were J. M.
Priestly's new comedy, "Laburnue-
Grove," George Bernard Shaw's new
play, "The Simpleton of the Unex-

pected Isles," Ibsen's "Ghosts," Noel
Coward's revue, "Up to the Stars,"
a world premiere of Robert Raynold's
"8he Ugly Runts," "The Bishop Mis-
behaves," and "Ode to Liberty."
Foremost among the players in
the season was Nazimova, who 'was
seen in the Shaw play and in
"Ghosts." Other welly-known actors
who appeared in the productions were
Romney Brent, Edmund Gwenn, Mel-
ville Cooper, Ilka Chase, Walter
Slezak, Irene Bordoni, Violet Hem-
ing, Estelle Winwood, Tom Po'"-,
and Ainsworth Arnold.
Next year will be the sixth of Mr.
Henderson's Dramatic Seasons, and
an even more ambitious schedule has
been planned. The season opens
during the middle of May, and runs
for five weeks.
