Of MEN and MICE..
Daisy Mae and L'il Abner came to town en masse Saturday night at
the "Sadie Hawkins" dance. It was the ladies' big night on account of
they could ask their gentlemen friends . . . . or hillbilly men as the cafe
might be. We'd like to give a big hand to the people who really donned
hillbilly outfits. It takes time and ingenuity to work up a clever costume
and a lot of nerve to walk down to the League in it after you've put it on
(judging from some of the outfits we saw!) but the people that came dressed
as hillbillies really made the dance a success for themselves and everyone
else .. Seen cutting the rug, or shining the barn floor, or
swingin' in a square (or whatever you call dancing in the
mountains) were Bill Coxon and Mary Piersol, Arnold White
and Jo Ann Smith, Sam Cresson and Mary Morton, and
Bill Rockwell, Marty Peirsol, Jim Dunlap, Mary Reichard,
Logan Hovis and Betty Hoag. Mildred Patterson came as
Granny and won the prize for havin' the best gals' costume
it was complete right down to the pipe and sunbonnet!
The Li'l Abner that won was Thomas Todd. His costume
but what we think really won him the award was that his
physique is just like Li'l Abner's ! . Lucky man!
There's been lots of talk about censorship lately ... on account of war
and everything .... It only touches us slightly on Monday afternoons when
all our friends rush up to us and say, "Gosh, don't put it in that I went out
with HIM" or "You don't have to say we were at the Bell do you? Can't
you just say we were at the League?" This all leads up to the fact that we
think a little censorship doesn't do anyone any harm. Example-the League
Council sponsored the "Sadie Hawkins" dance, The Michigan Daily wrote
the publicity, and on Saturday, July 27, out of these two RESPECTABLE,
UPSTANDING organizations came this statement on page three, line 29:
"Everyone attending will be asked to wear at least a par-
tial costume." Well, really! we feel that this is carrying
the comfort in hot weather idea a LITTLE bit too far ...L
Our mother taught us never to be seen in public in any-
thing but a complete costume! What was the League
Council thinking of?
Speaking of cool weather, or.trying to be cool in ho
Weather, we've seen lots of people out playing golf and tennis and other
strenuous sports ... What we want to know is how do they stand it. We
recommend complete isolation in a basement surrounded by myriads of
electric fans; a raidio, and something cool to drink. Oh yes, we discovered
a new way of cooling off over the weekend .... Go out to Walled Lake and
spend all your money on the roller coaster ..,.

Metro - Goldwyn - Mayer's newest 7
musicale "New Moon" made its de-
but in Ann Arbor last night at the
Michigan Theatre, featuring the
songs of Jeannette MacDonald and
Nelson Eddy.
Eddy Disquised as Bondslave
The plot involves the usual Eddy
entanglement with Metro's blond
baritone playing the part of an ideal-
istic, revolutionary nobleman who be-
comes enamoured with a wealthy
countess. Eddy, a victim of circum-
stances, is at the time when the spark
of love flickers in the employment
of his dream woman not daring to
reveal his true identity because the
police are hot on his trail. After a
touching scene in the garden during
which the ice definitely breaks, Eddy,
the much misjudged boy, is dishon-
orably discharged from further ser-
vice. After his wounded pride recov-
ers, he frees his bondslave friends
from the garrison and together they
recover their rescue ship, "New
Moon", setting sail from New Orleans
early the next day. Of course, at
precisely that moment, MacDonald
decides to get away from it all and
naturally chooses the fatal shipwhich

is destined to be taken by pirates ali-
as Eddy and crew.
A terrific storm comes up and the
New Moon total eclipses on the rocks.
Simultaneously, a big beautiful is-
land appears on the horizon and
everybody's happy especially when
Eddy's and MacDonald's continous
growling turns to love, not immed-
iately, but nevertheless love after
Eddy goes away to war singing and
returns home singing.
Excellent Singing Duets
The acting on the whole is not too
good, but the singing is excellent
and after all, that's what the public
want when they go see Eddy and
While the action may move rapidly
enough for a musicale stage show, it
did seem to be under par as far as
movie action goes. Though as a whole
"New Moon" doesn't reach the heights
of "Naughty Marietta", the singing
is every bit as good if not better.

Above are shown two of the most bewitching and certainly the most
comfortable costumes for Ann Arbor weather at the present time that
could be dreamed up anywhere. The sleek jersey suit at the right, shown
here in black, but available in bright colors for the more conservative,
is most becoming to any type of figure. The one at the left, also sporting
the full skirt, is made of satin lastex, skillfully gored to fit the figure
and flatter the wearer.

Germany, aiming at England's
southeastern "chin" which juts out
close to France, struck new bomb
blows on teeming town and country-
side today (Tues.) following up Mon-
day's heavy raid on Dover, greatest
single smash at a British city thus

The bombers this morning spent
three hours bombing Wales and
other localities, but their most mas-

dential district there before the pop-

was no report on the number of cas-
ualties, but the British acknowledged
that homes had been destroyed.

was the landing spot in 1066 of Wil-

Tea Dances Called Off
Ruth Streelman States
Due to the heat during the day,
there will be no more tea dances
on Wednesday's at the Michigan
League, Ruth Streelman, '40Ed, in
charge of the dances, has announced.
The dances have been sponsored
throughout the summer by the Sum-
mer Sesson social office, and have
been free of charge to University
members. Earl Stevens and his or-
chestra have been playing for the

German dive-bombers and fighter
planes, witnesses said "German planes
were falling like autumn leaves."
The British Air Ministry reported
17 Nazi planes had been shot down,
and three other bombers were de-
stroyed elsewhere as Germany also
raided the south of England and the
Channel. 9
Doverlis the nearest English port
to German-occupied France and a
logical place for debarking German
troops. Reports that train service
between unoccupied and occupied
France had been halted, denial in
Berlin, plus more intense air at-
tacks heightened speculation that
Adolf Hitler might not be long in
giving the expected order for an
attempt to invade England.
The Air Ministry, however, report-
ed that 17 Nazi airdromes in Ger-
many, Holland, Belgium and North-
ern France had been bombed Sun-
day night along with oil depots and
docks in Germany. Three British
planes failed to return.
The Germans placed Britain's
planes losses at 11 and said the raids
Sunday night did not hit military
The British charged that Germany
was using seaplanes marked with a
medical Red Cross for "valuable
reconnaissances" and for general
communications work. The Air Min-,
istry said two of those planes were
shot down Sunday.
