THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Hindu Rug-Cutters Go To Town In London Rehearsal
By the Neighbor
Begrudgingly we admit that Ann Arbor the beautiful has been too
warm for comfort this past week, but a few active souls have ventured out
after sundown to take in some of the "night life."
At the opening of "Judgment Day" we saw Stan Swinton, Ed Frutig,
Karl Kessler and Harry Kelsey, the latter two having an hilarious time.
Seen bumming the other day were Phil Newman and Dennis Flanagan.
Wonder what the attraction is in Detroit.
Found on a beer coaster: Men I would marry (in order of preference):
Melvin, Bernie, Truman, Arthur and Harry. The lady must have been a
little uncertain at the time, but if you're at the bottom of the list don't give
Seen watching the Union floor show last night was pretty Elaine
Wood with Chuck Dolph.
In town for the weekend, was Art Hopkins, '41E, who is working at the
Fresh Air Camp this summer.
Lenton "Scud" Sculthorpe, next year's 'Ensian managing editor, is
in town with Dave Laing, the 1939 editor.
Thursday night between acts at the Lydia Mendelssohn, Kay Purdom
and George Quick were seen talking to Phil Buchen and Dick Humphreys.
And Friday night Paul Park and Betty Conn took in the play.
Adolescent Bohemianism . .
The other night while we were coming out of a local restaurant we over-
heard a young girl blithely say to her companion. "I simply love this adoles-
cent Bohemianism what with beards and everything." At which the recipient
of the remark turned around and yelled down the street, "That's all right,
sister, you may have one yourself someday." If you're curious as to the
name of the bearded individual we refer you to Eli.
Who is the prominent young man on Campus who burns the midnight
oil till 4 a.m.? He's either suffering from a severe case of insomnia or else
he lies awake worrying about what his cohorts are doing away from his
guardianship. The name in the case is CENSORED.
If you'd been around the composing room about 2 a.m. Wed. you
would have received one of the very special issues of the morning paper with
Happy Birthday Lauren printed in place of Price Five Cents. Lauren besides
running the press in a very proficient manner is a swell guy. And inciden-
ally, Wednesday was his birthday.
Jane and Tommy Waters, Jean Griffin and Jack Link of Akron are up
for the weekend to see Corinne Killinger and Ellen Jones. Wonder if the
Rackham Building will be open today.
Jeannette Thomas, popular brunette at Jordan Hall, turned down three
dates Wednesday to study. More power to her and we hope her professor
Sober Minds Play Horsie .*.
What sober-minded (?) upper-classmen were seen playing "horsie" out
at Barton Pond this week. The game requires little brains and much
brawn, the object being to see how close you can come to drowning your
opponents by clipping them on the chin and then submerging them in the
water. We thought they looked a little silly, but they seemed to be having
a good time.-
Seen down at Flautz's the other night was Diana Barrett Moulton,
authoress of "Beer and Skittles," who was indulging in a surrealist game
called "associations" in prepartion, no doubt, for the ASU Surrealist Ball
which comes off Friday.
Picnicking at the Island yesterday, and having themselves a won-
derful time were Jean Maxted, Jimmy Driscoll, Winters Kendall, Ginny
Finkbeiner,,Ginny Morris and Ben Marino.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold House, former Michigan students, are throwing
a birthday party today for Ruth Seager, at which Gretchen "Scotch" Has-
selbring, Bob Pomeranian, George Lewis, Mickey Udell, and "Buttons" and
"Mimi" House will be among those raising whoopee.
Mr. and Mrs. John Alcorn, he's a junior in the engine school, had an
infonal gathering of friends at their apartment yesterday. Warren.
Baughmann and Helen Smith were the guests of honor.
"Here today, there tomorrow, where oh where is our darling dauIghter?"
Don't worry folks, she's probably out having some harmless fun, and will be
home soon unsullied. So chin up, shoulders back, and don't believe
EVERYTHING you read in the newspapers.
Oh where, oh where can those women be, oh where is our dear purveyor
of personal little bits about personal little people-Oh well, the presses must
roll and our anxious public must be satiated, so we'll see what a husky (?)
male can do.
YES, and HERE is our chance to TAKE a few digs at those nasty
little remarks Mme. Alice and Co. have been making about the collective
male student's appearance.
I suppose it's now customary to mention a. few who's who's of campds
life seen where THE people meet. Well, here's my version: Dropped into
the Hillbilly last night, and who did I see there but my old friend Pat
"Butch" McAllister munching daintily on a large 'burg, onions included.
There's something about a hash house that gets under one's skin, but being
in a rambling mood we hied off toward THOSE places downtown that
friend Dickinson has warned us about.
This may not be a jitterbug routine, but devotees of swing could get same ideas from Ram Gopal (center)
and his Hindu dancers, rehearsing in London.
Autumn Hues, Blacks In Fall Dresses
Are Refreshing After Summer Pastels
By ALICE RYDELL
A few fall fashion forecasts for
Summer is doing a "black-out"
what with the stores featuring black
dresses, black shoes, black hats, even
black furs. But black looks mighty
enticing after a summer of whites
and pastels that begin to look rather
pale and jaded when August comes
along. For a first best dress, black
is an inevitable choice unless it's
vastly unbecoming. It should be
softly draped with fullness pulled
toward and back and maybe ac-
cented simply with a piece of old gold
Colors such as oak red, willow
green and autumn brown are pro-
phetic of Indian summer and have a
fresh tang after too many bon-bon
pastels have sickened the palate.
One outstand1ing dress in fall col-
lections is a beige cashmere jersey
with saddle-stitching outlining the
fly-front, huge patch pockets and de-
mure round collar. Fly-fronts, by
the way, are high fashion this fall
and featured in many a tailored
frock. Zippers are often used under
the fly instead of the usual buttons
to facilitate speedy dressing.
Sweater sets are back again after
hibernating for a few seasons. They
are being shown in Shetlands, cash-
meres and angoras, particularly. New
sweater colors are moss leaf, grape
wine (much like fuschia), blue, navy,
natural, yellow, white, red and burnt
For dressier frocks the wide, cor-
seletted midriff is flattering. Some-
times -it is shirred or smocked to
give a definite 1939, air. Smocking,
the sort your mother put on your
pantie-to-match frocks, is revived
this season and used to highlight
grown-up silks in unusual ways. Many

Approximately 25 Almanians have
already promised to attend and all
small tucks and deluges of pleats are
other prominent details for fall.,
A first fall suit in botany woolen
is a smart as well as practical choice.
Made with horizontal "rib-tucks" and
flaunting six pockets, such a suit is
a firm foundation for any wardrobe.
Have the gored skirt flare fully from
the tiny waist. New combinations for
the blouse are dark green with char-
treuse, plum with chartreuse, or blue
with wine. Then use the skirt with
your sweater wardrobe.
Another unusual suit is an authen-
tic clan plaidin true lumber-jacket
style worn with a flaring swing skirt.
The jacket fastens with gold buttons,
and the skirt matches one of the col-
ors in the plaid.
For more formal occasions, if you
still want to be suited, a lush, black
sheer woolen with Persian collar of
Peter Pan cut and a fitted jacket
with many small buttons is the an-
swer. Larger, round pockets are the
only decoration and are also of the
For coats, tweeds seem to lead the
way. A fresh combination is por-
celain blue shaded ito rich brown
and, topped with a generous raccoon
collar. For a dressier model, a rnt-
ted bodice and full dervish skirt with
velvet accents outlining the breast
pockets is a happy choice.
