camp and other special activities con-
nected with camp. Canoeing classes
learn to paddle on the Huron River.
During the winter months, four
other activities are planned to pro-
vide indoor games. Interclass and
intraclass tournaments are held in
connection with elgfnentary and in-
termediate badminton. There are
classes for both beginning and inter-
mediate fencers.
Ice skaters practice in the Univer-
sity Coliseum. Team sports for the
cold months are indoor baseball and
indoor basketball. Body mechanics
classes are designed to improve pos-
ture and to help students to gain a
general grace in carriage of body,
Miss Beise said. N
Throughout the year classes in
swimming and dancing are offered.
Beginners learn to swim in the Bar-
bour Gymnasium pool. The inter-
mediate class, which is not only for
bettering skill in individual strokes,
but also for water games and stunts,
meets in the Union Pool.
Dancers have a wide variety of
classes from which to choose, includ-
ing modern dance for both beginners
and intermediates, a class for music
majors stressing the relationship of
music and dance. There are also
classes in both elementary and inter-
mediate tap dancing, in American
country dancing, in folk dancing and
in social or ballroom dancing. The
latter classes will be organized for
those who have had little or no ex-
perience on the ballroom floor.

Formal Outfits
Follow Trend
Of Simplicity
Cover-Up Evening gowns
Become Popular; Some
Prefer Sleeveless Ones
There's one time in your life when
you want to be absolutely glamorous
and that's for the first formal dance
of your University career.
Be sure that everything's perfect
about that occasion, but don't overdo
it. As everything about this campus,
evening clothes are conservative. No
trailing gown that would be appro-
priate for New York's social high-
light, but nevertheless, something
with a great deal of yumph.
Evening dresses very often have
sleeves, but that certainly doesn't
mean that strap or strapless gowns
don't find their place at dances here.-
Men here like to see lovely shoulders
while they're wearing white tie and
tails, just like anywhere else, but you
should have at least one.dress that
isn't entirely decollete.
It's a good guess that grand-
mother's taffeta dress with long
sleeves and high neck--the ones that
are swarming the market this fall-
will be accepted here. Another to
find acceptance will be the classic
draped gown that shows off a tiny
If you possibly can, get an evening
coat to cover yourself with. Practical-
ly everyone has one, and black vel-
vet ones can be gotten at not too high
prices. If your wrap doesn't have a
hood, it would be nice to have a silk
kerchief to cover your curls with, for
wind and cold here get some very
bitter streaks. Because of these bitter
streaks, white gloves or mittens are
wonderful to have for the sake of
As for the accessories of your eve-
ning dress, the only word to say is,
not too much. A lot of spangles are
not considered good taste. Women
here often bedeck their hair with
flowers, ribbons, jewelry, and some-
times even bits of filmy veil, but
many wear their hair in exactly the
same way as during the day.

conjunction with the department.
When a club gives an open tourna-

an open one also.

Classic Hats,
Low - Heeled
Shoes Worn



Football Spectating And Sports
Make Many Costumes Possible

.., h..:ti'... .

At both extremities, from your
head to your toes, you'll be wearing
things that Michigan is absolutely
dictatorial about, and those things
are hats and shoes.
Hats are almost nonexistent ex-
cept for snap brims. Many co-eds
have a supply of them that range
the colors of the rainbow, but that's
hardly necessary. At any rate, for
both campus and date wear, have at
least one classic snap brim like the
one above. Bandanas are used on
cold days, and a few women have
saucy skull caps matching some part
of their costume, but there are very
few fussy hats in view.
Shoes on campus are usually flat
heeled. Some wear high or medium
heels, but for all the walking that'
goes on because of the auto-ban,
sport shoes are by far in the lead.
Men are trying to convince girls
that saddle. shoes are a dying vogue,
so that other low heeled shoes, such
as moccasins, are putting in an ap-
pearance, but the saddle is still king.
With campus shoes, anklets are
usually worn over silk stockings, but
some people prefer to have only the
stockings on.
The shoes to wear with date dress-
es are of a wide variety. Any kind
of a high heel is fine. Low heeled
pumps bask in the limelight because
they're comfortable to walk in, and
there is so much of that to do here.

When the first signs of fall ap-
proach on the trail of summer, teen-
age minds immediately turn to
thoughts of college. And with
thoughts of the University of Michi-
gan comes the ever-present antici-
pation of a thrilling footb'all season.
Now it's only natural for every girl
to want to dress, in style to watch
football played in style, and so we
will briefly describe to you what
authoritative sources predict will be
the correct mode of dress for 1940's
Snappy knee-length pleated skirts
of plain and plaid design with knee-
high woolen socks topped with a jack-
et, either matching or contrasting
with the skirt, is just the right thing
to wear to the first few games when
the cool fall breezes proceeding the
cold wintry blasts have not yet made
it necessary for heavier clothing.
For Indian Summer
If Indian Summer weather pre-
dominates at the time when you're
all set to leave for the stadium, hop
into a tailored suit of corduroy, her-
ring-bone or camels hair, pull a chic
snap brim over your curls, slip into
the new master low-wedge saddle
shoe and you're all set. We have it
that plain colors will overshadow
plaids in popularity this year as far
as the new wrist length jackets are
Now for something absolutely new
and something that buyers all agree
will take campuses by storm. It is a
little boy coat or flared copy cat re-
versible, with- brown or blue tweed
on one side and durable, water-re-
pellant, wind proof gabardine on the
other side. They're mannish and
tailored and really smart looking-
the wind and the rain may get into
your hair but it won't get through
your coat.
'Two-Fleed' Polo Coat
The casual classic polo coat has
gone two-faced this year and can be,
seen with camel's hair and wool on
one side and cotton gabardine whifh
has been processed to resist rain on'
the other. Hooded tweeds and her-
ringbones with fly-front zipper are
also reversed with a fine-weave beige
Full-cut skirts in the new fall
shades worn with cashmere, angora
or pinafore sweaters are just the thing
to wear under a coat. Or perhaps

you may prefer blouses--in such a
case, long-sleeved shirts of silk jer-
sey, broadcloth or flannel will ade-
quately serve the purpose. It seems
that long sleeves are almost com-
pletely replacing short sleeves for
campus wear.
When the Michigan Stadium be-
comes frost-bitten as it is sure to
later in the football season, sundry
fur coats and colorful sport hats
will be picturesquely dotting the
bleachers. Fur coats assure complete
warmth and wind protection especi-
ally when worn over corduroy pina-
fores "with detachable tops and wool
jersey shirts.
White Box .Coat
Something else making its debut
this fall is & white camels hair box
coat with a delightful hood lined
with raccoon. The amazing thing
about this coat is that it can be worn
as an evening wrap over formals, a
campus knock-about or as sports
wear for games.
But gals, football doesn't last all
winter even if we wish it did and
you'll soon be dashing off afternoons
to the ice-topped hills and snow
drifted valleys of Ann Arbor's favor-
ite sport playgromind, the Arboretum,
to ski and slide with the gang. Classy,
bright ski outfits are about the only
thing that really guarantee warmth
and protection when that topsy-tur-
vy toboggan tosses you head first into
a snowbank. Gabardine outfits will
be featured again this year, as well as
Skate At Coliseum
There's no better way to relax from
studies and the worries of the day
then to glide over the ice in step
with rhythmical recordings at the
home of Michigan's hockey players,
the Coliseum. Last year short, flared
skirts became the rage almost over
night but their popularity wasn't as
extensive as it might have been be-
cause more conservative skaters were
a bit reluctant to wear them. How-
ever, now that the country- has be-
come accustomed to them, each and
every skater will want to own one
of these ballarina skirts with a match-
ing or contrasting quilted jacket or
a jacket lined with fleece.
And this fall when your thoughts
of college have materialized, you will
see correctly attired Michigan women
proudly displaying the 1940 mode of
sports wear.
