Chambray Makes August 'Last Stand'
August may mean fur sales and the first fall fashions to some peo-
ple, but for comfort and chic these hot days of late summer, nothing
is more appropriate than a chambray frock, executed in soft shades of
pinky-beige or muted green. Cool and smart, they are a change from
fussy summer sheers, and are just enough on the autumn side to satisfy
The huge patch-pockets and slimmer hipline on the dress at the
right are two of the biggest fashion notes being stressed at present in
the new winter clothes.
Wlill Be Given
Not to be outdone by the winter
session, the Summer Session social
office is following the fad set this
past year by having a, "black out"
party at the dance at the League,
The event, which will feature the
dance to be held from 9 to 12 p.m.,
will also include "come as you were
asked" costumes. This will allow
much informality, and a variety of
outfits are expected.
Decorations of the ballroom will'
follow the black out theme. Betty
Hoag is in charge of the dance, and
will have a group of hostesses there
for those who wish to meet partners.
Earl Stevens and his orchestra are
to furnish the music for the affair.

The engagement of Grace Creitz,
of Sunfield, to a former student in
the University, Ronald Isbell, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Isbell, of Ann
Arbor, was recently announced by
Miss Creitz's parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Creitz. The wedding will take place
in Sunfield, where Mr. Isbell is ath-
letic coach and principal of the high
school, on August 27.
A wedding Saturday, August 17,
is being planned by two University
graduates, Frances Mary Anderson,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. N. An-
derson of Kewanee, Ill., and John
Woodward Hays, son of Mr. and Mrs.
C. A. Harris, of Ann Arbor.
Mr. Hays graduated from the liter-
ary college in 1937, and is taking
work in the dental school at the
present time. Miss Anderson was
graduated from the University school
of education and plans to take a
course in the dental school next
fall. She is a member of Alpha Gam-
ma Delta sorority.
Another engagement of interest to
University society is that of Betsy
Lucille Jolstad, daughter of Mrs. Try-
gve Jolstad, of Detroit, to Russel
Montgemery Welch, of Grand Rapids.
Miss Jolstad attended Smith Col-
lege, and Mr. Welch was a student
in the University, where he was a

The Burke-Wadsworth draft bill
came in for strong attack as a step,
toward facscism, when Tom Downs,
chairman of the local chapter of
New America, last night told an open
meeting audience that the people of
America must have a standard of
living worth fighting for.
"The conscription bill providing
$21 a month for drafted men, while
capital is making unlimited profits,
undermines the moral and unity
necessary for a defense program,"
The prerequisite to an adequate
defense is breaking those monopoly
controls that keep production from
the people, he said.
Robert S. Rosa, speaking on the
"Havana Confereige versus German
Penetration of South America" ap-
plauded the cartel plan saying "it
will successfully forestall economic
penetration by the Nazis." He agreed
with Downs that United States' in-
ternal economy must be expanded
before the cartel can succeed.
"We must be able to buy from
as well as sell to South America,"
Rosa said in calling for an expanded

Pacifists Urge Program
Of Trust, Good Will
An alternative political program to
conscription and increased militar-
ization was discussed at the meeting
of the Fellowship of Reconciliation,
campus pacifist organization, at Lane
Hall last night.
The opinion of the group was that
the present defense program creates
antagonism and distrust, and that
any program for building ultimate
peace must be one that creates trust
The points discussed were:
1. The development of friendly re-
lations with Mexico and other Latin-
American countries, and to give mor-
al support to democratic forces in
2. Lowering tariff barriers against
other nations in this hemisphere.
3. Proposing a fair system of trade
with Europe, no matter who con-
trols it, and refusing to cooperate
in unfair trading.
4. Reducing all economic and po-
litical sources of friction and ill-feel-
ing within this country.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.. Aug. 6.-
(I')-The new State Association of
County Welfare Boards today opened
a drive for a larger financial appro-
priation for relief from the Legisla-
ture as its annual convention began
Milton S. Van Geison of Flint, pres-
ident of the association, proposed in
his opening address that the dele-
gates set up a committee to work
out a "sound welfare financing sys-
tem" based on earmarking a portion
of the state sales tax revenue to
"finance at least half the relief bill
of the counties, including adminis-
trative costs and other welfare
charges against the counties."
His remark was taken as a refer-
ence to a proposal by the Associa-
tion's officers that 25 per cent of
the sales tax revenue-or about $15,-
000,000-be allocated for relief and
distributed to the counties 90 per,
c'pnt on fhe hagig nf nnnlation sindi
In a series of recommendations,
Van Geison said the matter of ade-
quate financing "was the most im-
portant." He said the county relief
forces had expected the legislature,
in enacting the 1939 welfare reor-
ganization law, would provide for
the distribution of state funds "on
the same basis as in the previous six
Van Geison said a majority of the'
legislature "admitted" that an an-
nual appropriation of $8,750,000 for
the biennium was not sufficient to
meet the needs of the counties and
that deficit financing would be re-
quired. Instead, he said, those coun-
ties which could have been forced
to pay 50 per cent of their relief costs
and others had been "pressed" for
a greater contribution to the extent
that some are "in serious financial
The President also demanded the
