Looking E ass
One of the most unusual new materials is drop-stitch linen. Especially
smart is it in cool French blue with narrow wine kid belt. The skirt is flared
below the hips, giving that desirable appearance of flat front
and not too bulky hipline. If a dirndl makes you look frankly
chubby, this is your skirt. The bodice is buttoned with 16 tiny
rmatching blue buttons up to a collarless neckline. Two small
pockets only accentuate the smart simplicity of the design.

If you're going swimming in Portage, Alpine, or Whitmore
be sure to have the most becoming in suits. One of nature's
ablest flatterers is black lastex. Choose it either
ina aonepiece style oflittle boyinspirationorwith
a flattering ballerina skirt. If you're dark or have
a coffee tan, your best bet in enhancement is a
dead white. But be sure your figure is nigh perfect
before you dare the revealingness of white. .

Also grand for beachcombers is a white terrycloth robe,
tailored and long. Not only is such a robe smart but comfortable,
too, after a hard swim. For terrycloth, like a thirsty towel, absorbs the drops
of water.
Smarter than hats and far more practical on windy days are fishnet
snoods. White for dark heads, black for tow heads. They'll keep
your locks tidy and smooth, come what may.

One of the coolest dresses found in campus shops is a brown
.' sheer voile with tiny white dots. It has the appearance of chiffon
but all the practicality of cotton. The top is classic ;
shirtwaist, dressed up with tiny pin tucks from t
shoulder to waist, tiny pearl buttons, and collar and .h
cuffs edged in narrow baby lace. The skirt is flat-
teringly cut with gores stitched on the outside in the
' 1939 manner to make them flare in a perky manner. 4

JGP Scripts
Are Requested
By Chairman
Stories May Be Submitted
By Anyone Interested;
Deadline To Be Oct. 14
All those interested in writing
scripts for the 1940 J'unior Girls
Play are urged to do so by Marjorie
Allison, '41, general chairman. It is
not necessary to be a member of
the Junior class or to be a student
in the University to have the scripts
accepted, she stated.
The dead-line for scripts will be
Oct. 14 and the author of the accept-
ed script will be paid, providing he
or she is not a member of the Junior
class. In order to be considered for
acceptance a tentative script must
be so constructed so as to include
a large number of persons in the
cast and must be adaptable for prd-
sentation in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, Miss Allison said.
Musical comedy productions offer
the best material while collegiate
themes do not usually make good
stories for this sort of play, Richard
McKelvy, producer and director of
the play stated.
The Junior Girls Play started 34
years ago as a stunt night presented
only for the senior women in the
University andsdeveloped slowly into
an elaborate production similar to
the Union Men's Opera. In 1913 the
fantasy, "Realm of Dreams" was
produced with an orchestra and
traveled to Detroit and Toledo under
the direction of Professor Herbert
It was not until 1923 that the
University men were allowed to view
the production when it was opened
to the public and enjoyed a week's
run at the Whitney theater. When
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre was
completed in 1927 the play was
moved to that location and produced
on a large amateur scale while the
old tradition of only Senior women
viewing' the first performance is still
Plays of recent years include the
"Mulberry Bush" which was a musi-
cal comedy laid somewhereinEurope.
The plot of the play included a large
royal family and many political in-
trigues of a humorous nature. The
1938 JGP, entitled "Feather in Her
Cap" was a Dutch toy shop story of
a long lost son returend in the nick
of time to save his father from
financial ruin. The Class of 1940
presented "Pig in a Poke," the story
of an aristocratic Southern family
and deals with the hair-raising es-
capades of a son turned into notori-
us gambler. A clever plot, many
bright costumes and dancing chor-
uses made the production a success.

nese culture, an exhibition of textiles

ence, and will be on view in the
mezzanine exhibition rooms of the

Ceremonial gowns, bed covers, and
