~JE~D>AX, 3~LY 27, L%37 7AQI

Despite the heat, Friday night saw
the usual large crowd at the Union.
Charlie Zwick and his "Swing De-
rons" again kept every thing going
with new novelties and smooth
On walking into the ballroom we
encountered Jean Geyer looking sup-
er in a pale peach knit suit, inciden-
tally she deserves loads of credit for
the neat job of getting hostesses for
the occasion.
We went out for a bit of dancing
and bu ped quite unceremoniously
into Ja e Reitter and Jimmie Sar-
gent. Then we spotted Hope Hart-
wig with Jack Crofts. . . . and out
of the corner of our eyes we caught
sight of John Jordan getting ready
to do a little cutting. . . . Cigarettes
were holding the attention of several
couples, among whom we saw Jenny
Petersen with Hank Homes.
As usual, stags were numerous,
which is a feature that adds to the
fun of any good dance. Thirst hav-
ing gotten the better of us, we wan-
dered down to the grill to partake of
a coke. We saw Marie Sawyer with
Doug Gregory . . . smooth dancers by
the way. . . . On the dance floor
once again, we saw Marge Erb danc-
ing with Fred Hoffimeister and hum-
ming along with the music,
On account of the rain, Saturday
night was somewhat cooler and the
crowd seemed even larger than Fri-
day. With mid-semesters completely
over, happiness was in the air.
Charlie Zwick helped the evening off
to a great start by playing "The Night
Ride" just as well as Ambrose ever
thought of playing it.
We saw Phyllis Miner, who also de-
serves a great deal of credit for pick-
ing hostesses, wearing a black linen
bolero dress with a red sash, dancing
here and there with several lucky
stags. And speaking about stags, we
saw Tom McCann looking for some-
one to dance with.
While in the grill we found out
how the band amuses itself during
intermissions. They play a modified
form of basketball, using paper nap-
kins which they and others were vain-
ly trying to throw into coke glasses.
Very shortly 12 o'clock rolled
around and the band sang "When
Night Falls Dear" as the whole crowd
listened without a sound. It was a
very impressive way to end a swell

Accident Happens 9 Miles
North Of City; Total Of
7 Treated For Injuries j
Two men are in critical condition
and a woman seriously injured in St.
Joseph's Mercy Hospital here today
as the result of a head-con collision
near the intersection of Webster
Church and Farrell Roads Sunday af-
ternoon, nine miles north of Ann Ar-
Three more have been hospitalitzed
and a seventh person treated and re-
leased for injuries received in the
same crash.
More than two hours elapsed after
the crash at 5 p.m. before the last of
the victims had been removed and
brought to the hospital by the two
ambulances, Staffan's and Red Top,
which are the only ones in Ann Arbor
available for emergency calls. Heavy
traffic on roads leading to the scene,1
together with the necessity of two
trips by each ambulance, occasioned
the delay.
Autos Hurled Into Ditch
The crash took place on the Web-
ster Church Road 200 feet from its
intersection with Farrell Road, and
at a point where two cars barely have
roo menough to pass. A car being
driven south by Merle Groulx, 32
years old, of Whitmore Lake Route 1,
came over the brow of a hill on the
road and in the hollow beyond it
collided with a north-bound car driv-
en by Rothwell E. Felter, 27 years
old, 917 E. Ann St., and both auto-
mobiles were hurled into the ditch.
Groulx, who suffered a skull frac-
ture, severe scalp lacerations, and a
probable internal injuries, was most
seriously injured. One of his com-
panions, Elmer Altenbernt, 20 years
old, also of Whitmore Lake, was also
reported in critical condition. His
. right eye was badly damaged, and he
also suffered severe contusions, lac-
erations, and abrasions, together with
compound fractures of the nose and
right cheek.

With his customary genial grin,
Grimm declared that he "felt real1
good." He gave every indication that
he had been relieved of the sciatic
condition in his back which forced
him to turn over the National League

companion, Mrs. Louise Chapman, 22
years old, 1007 S. State St., was pro-
nounced in serious condition by hos-
pital officials, who listed her injuries
as fractures of both legs and a wrist,
together with severe neck lacerations,
and a possible skull fracture.
Two other passengers in Groulx's
car, Florence Altenbernt, 14 years
old, and Chester Radjekawski, 17
years old, a neighbor of the Alten-
bernts, were also hospitalized, the
girlr with severe bruises of the head
and body, and Radjekawski with a
dislocated shoulder and deep cuts
about the head.
Nelson Altenbernt, 17 years old,

Petitpoint Flower Cirelets
Across Vamp Increase
For those of you whose early season
dress and street shoes look a little
worn, or if your wardrobes need
brightening, there are still smart
styles in summer footwear. And be-
sides, the summer sales offer bargains
to those who feel that the full price
for half a season's wear is uneco-
This summer colored shoes and
those without toes or heels are worn
by those who are not too conservative.
For the first time white with colors
other than navy, brown, or black are
seen frequently.
One pair of the most becoming
color-trimmed sandals are heelless
and toe-less with a T-strap. Across
the vamp are petitpoint flower cir-
clets, about 7 of them, following the
cut of the shoe. The toe is cut in a
V up the instep and below each little
circlet is a V shaped space, making
an interesting pattern. These slim-
ly elegant linen sandals never fail to
cause comment, and come with the'
circlets in one or two tropical colors
on white, deep blue and red on sun-
tan, brown and bellow on beige, or
rose on baby blue.
Ankle-Strapped Sandal
Ankle strapped sandals with open
toes flatter the ankles, though they
are rather uncomfortable when climb-
ing stairs., Pandora has one in pow-
der blue cotton shantung with kid
trimmed petals over the vamp.
Two open-toed sandals that are
distinctly dressy are in mesh lined
with kid. One is all white with a
cross-winged T-strap with strips of
calf outlining the cut of the shoe. The
other is a plain strap sandal with a
stitched circlet on the toe, comes in
all white or white with black or blue
The sabot shoe is an unusually
comfortable shoe. It is cut like a high
oxford, but has a strap which buckles
on the side, is either heelless, or has
cut-outs above the arch. This type
of shoe may be found in plain buck,
linen mesh, or in kid with a colored
twill mesh insert down the center of
the toe.

is the pump, especially the peren-

terday morning committed suicide by
pumping exhaust fumes into his
coupe as he sat in it with his Bos-
ton terrier, Toy, a constant compan-
ion of recent years.
His body was discovered by Harold
Hutzel, owner of the double garage
at 116 W. William St., where Wahl
kept his car, shortly after noon when
Hutzel came after his own automo-
bile. He noticed that Wahl had his
motor running, and the garage doors
open, and then saw a piece of garden
hose running from the exhaust pipe
through the car door, which was
slightly open.
Wahl, who had been a bill collector
for a number of local firms, at the
time of his,'death was a salesman
for the A. & L. Battery Electric Serv-
ice. He left a note asking that the
dog be buried with him.
Police, who attributed the death
to family troubles, said that the mo-
tor had probably been running for
three hours or more. The body was
taken to Staffan's Funeral Parlor.
