Not so long ago there 'appeared in.
the Daily an article which stated,,
from a feminine standpoint, the
grievances the fairer sex bears in re-
gard to the choice of summer wearing
apparel on the part of local men.
Now it so happens that the grie-
vances are by no means limited to the
fawirer sex..

Voters Will Decide
On Loan For School
Electors of the Ann Arbor school
district will meet July 26 to vote upon
the question of raising an $82,500
bond issue to be used as part payment
in the construction of a new north-
side elementary school. A petition
for $67,500 in PWA funds to cover
:he balance of the cost of the pro-
posed $150.000 school is now in gov-
ernment hands, and it is considered
that the willingness of local tax-
payers to bear a share of the cost
burden will influence official decision
in making the grant.
The election, originally scheduled
only in case of success of the local
petition, was set for this month iol-
lowing a recent communication from
PWA officials. Also to be considered
at the July 26 meeting will be the
question of authorizing the increase

that as the years mount up so does
the amount of wearing apparel with
which ladies seem bound to burden
Progressing from the pleasant state
of near-nudity which the little lady
in the first illustration is enjoying, we
next see to what lengths the modern
lady will sacrifice comfort for what
she be?eve to be style.
Now this thing in the next illustra-
tion, according to the style books, is
called a dirndl, which is about as
appropriate a
name as any.
T h e principle
of the outfit is
an emulation of
what European
mountain wo-
men have been
trotting around
in since time
i m m e m o rial.
The skirt con-
tains about a
country mile of
cloth which is
e x p e ted to
swirl gracefully
a r o und the
knees but us-
ually achieves
only a dispiri-
ted droop.
If it isn't striped, it's flowered. If
it isn't flowered it presents what
seems to be a panorama view of an
electrical storm. But the worst part
of the whole outfit is usually the
color. Are these dresses carried out in
carefully blended colors that com-
bine harmoniously to please the eye?
On the contrary, the clash of hues
ranging from one end of the spectrum
to the other will induce in the hardest
soul P-1 ihe feelings of one afflicted
with locijaw and a terrific case of
mal cein(r.
These dirn dls if they are to be
worn for the best results should be
donned when going out into the rain.
The reason for this is that a raincoat
is usually worn when going out into
the rain and can as well protect the
rain from the dirndl as protect the
dirndl from the rain. The point to
remember, girls, is that dirndls worn
under a large and ample coat are

A Saginaw Saga..
Bill Watson who hails from Sagi-
naw, found out what his townsfellows
think of him at an appreciation din-
ner given in his honor Tuesday night.
SBill, as any Saginaw youngster
will tell you, reported for high
school track as a sophomore weigh-
ing 130 pounds. Imagine Bill Wat-
son at 130 pounds. But by the end
of his senior year Bill had won state
championships in the shot, broad
jump and the high jump. His shot
put mark, which broke a 40 year
record, still stands.
According to Charley Hoyt who at-
tended the dinner Watson is the
"greatest all-around athlete in the
world today". Said Hoyt, "I know of
no athlete who can do so many things
so well as Bill. I do not believe he has
yet reached his peak. I expect Bill
will do even greater things for us next
year as captain." All of which points
for a very profitable year for Michi-
gan track hopes next year.
Besides being a track star, Wat-
son proved his versatility by croon-
ing a couple of ditties. Can't you
just see Big Bill warbling in the
night. On top of all this, admirers
of the Saginaw star presented him
with three checks as "tokens of
Watson will stop in New York for
the Hibernian Games . at Randalls
Island where he will compete in his
favorite events, the shot put, the
broad jump and the discuss. Then
next Wednesday he will set sail for
England as a member of a picked
A.A.U. squad.

Burt Smith, defenseman on the
hockey team and varsity hurler, is
back in Summer Session trying to
graduate, Smith last June was signed
by the Boston Red Sox but Burt
passed it over for the present because
he wants his degree. He is pitching
for the Altes Lager team in Detroit.
Herm Fishman, another varsity
pitcher, who was signed by the Sy-
racuse Chiefs in the International
League, has been farmed out to
Albany in the Eastern League.
Johnny Gee, pitcher here two years
ago, is still going strong for these
same Syracuse Chiefs. He is pitch-

bad for a freshman in a double A

Ouster Rumor
Looms Abovte
Grimm's Hecad
CHICAGO, July 15.--AP)--Rumors
-This being the season for "firing"
managers of fading ball clubs-
boomed today over the graying head
of Charlie Grimm.
Bewildering confusion surrounds
the future of the Chicago Cubs' pilot,
whose team has skidded from near
the top of the National League stand-
ings down to fourth place. "Manager
for a day" apparently was his latest
title, despite the two victories scored
yesterday over Philadelphia which
snapped a six game losing streak.
"Charlie will manage the team at
least until tomorrow," said owner P.
K. Wrigley with a smile as he emerged
from his latest conference with
Later he said he "wouldn't fire
Charlie unless I found a better man-
agir, and I haven't found a better one
yet." He emphasized, however, that
he was not going to "back Charlie up"
by offering to renew his contract at
this time.
The tip which touched off the blast
of Grimm ouster reports cracked
through the town yesterday. It had
Catcher Gabby Hartnett taking Char-
lie's job. While Wrigley has said heI
would go outside his team if he ever
did select a newpilot, he admitted to-
day he might change his thoughts
along that line. The leading Cub
"candidates." apparently, were Hart-
nett, Tony Lazzeri and second base-
man Bill Herman.
Saturday, July 16, from 8 to 10 p.m.

dent's Observatory on the roof of An-
gell Hall, it was announced last night'
by M. G. Slattery of the Summer
Session office. All Summer Session
students may attend, but it is not
open to the general public.

Electric cooking is the up-to-the-minute
cooking method in use .oday. The
modem electric range represents the
last word in fine cooking equipment.
But what about -tomorrow?
Twelve years is the average length
of time a family keeps a stove. This
means that the stove you buy today
will be cooking for you in 1950. If you
buy an ELECTRIC range, you can be
sure that it will be as modern then as
it is now. The trend is to electric cook-
ing: Sixty thousand of your neighbors
now cook electrically. Last year alone,
10,000 families in and around Detroit
switched to electric cooking.
What 'are the reasons for this rapidly
growing popularity? An electric range
offers 6 proven advcintages that you get
in no other stove:
(1) CLEANLINESS-An electric range
cooks with pure heat from a glowing
wire-heat as clean as sunlight. - Your
kitchen walls and curtains stay fresh
for a much longer period of time, with
less frequent redecorating. Cooking
utensils remain bright and shiny after
long use.

electric range will not raise the kitchen
temperature even one degree, no matter
how warm the weather. It is a boon
during the hot summer months.
(3) BETTER FLAVOR-Electric cooking
has a deliciously different flavor - a
natural flavor in foods. Meats and
vegetables cook to melting tenderness
in their own juices. _4
waterless cooking method seals-in
precious minerals and important food
values. On an electric range, vege-
tables are steam-cooked: l1f-a-cup yof
water is ample.
(5) MORE LEISURE-rAnelectric range
is time-saving ,. it gives you extra
hours of freedom away from the kitchen.
(6) MODERN COOKING-This modern
cooking method is fast, simple, safe-
and convenient. Snap the switch and
start to cook. Thanks to the accurate
oven heat control, you can get the same
perfect baking results time after time,
without guesswork.
Let your dealer tell you about these fea-
tures of the 1938-model electric ranges.
