Highway Employes Asked

Detroit news said today that some

nual salary" to the Van Wagoner-

Culotts For Afternoon Wear
Chic For Town
Cool Freshness Of Black
Stressed For July
With the yearly advent of mid-
July, fashion copy begins to stress,
much to the honest amazement of
many women, the chic of the "simple
black" for town and dress wear.
Strange as this may sound on one
of those broiling days of summer, a
black gown, with the proper acces-
sories, can bring about a cool mien
and a sense of serene freshness that
is utterly lacking in the shiny face-
bright cotton ensemble.
Favorite complements to the basic
dress are immaculate and shining
white pull-on gloves, and an enor-
mous black cartwheel straw to shade
The costume jewelry found in such
abundance these days on the de-
partment store counters of America
is the source of endless variations.
Porcelain is the curernt favorite,
mounded in the form of flowers, and
ranging in size from tiny chokers to
long and complicated lei effects.
An interesting model for the pen-
cil-slim woman is one of rayon crepe,
made with a horizontally tucked bo-
dice. The skirt is cast in the new
straight mold, fitting smoothly over
the hips and the three-quarter, push-
up sleeves are cool and flattering.
TWO ON THE AISLE
By... The Two B's ...
Michigan Theatre offers a wide va-
riety of short features."Pony Ex-
press," a brevity done in Technicolor,
shows the difficulties faced when the
first pony express line was establish-
ed. A "Circus Today" cartoon and
novelty skit are particularly good
"Earthbound" At The Michigan
In the eternal triangle, Andrea
Leeds as Ellen, Lynn Bari as Linda
and Warner Baxter as Nicky make
up the three-cornered symbol of
"Earthbound" which arrived at the
Michigan Theatre yesterday. It is a
movie with a moral under the guid-
ance of a little fellow in black (we
still can't figure out who or what he
is) impersonated by Charley Grape-
win. The play deals with the adven-
tures of a ghost living on earth.
Nicky, murdered by Linda near
the beginning of the play, finds it
difficult to resign himself to the fact
that he is actually on earth but is
unable to be seen or heard by any-
one except one who refuses to ex-
plain his supernatural power.
It is amusing to see him present
at his own funeral, running about the
court room trying to sway the jury
with his inaudible speeches. How-
ever, he considers his life of ghostly
exsistence well spent when he is fin-
ally able to force this knowledge of
the crime into the subconscious mind
of his wife.
Ellen, the faithful wife, comes
through with two dramatic speeches
when she denies the justice of the
court, and when she pleads with a
condemmed prisoner determined to
shield the culprit. Henry Wilcoxon
portrays Jeff who tries to cover his
Musical Background Unusual
A snow-covered peak in the Swiss
Alps furnishes an ideal setting for
the mood created by Nicky and Ellen
at the beginning of the play. In cor-
relation with the settings, the un-
usual handling of the musical back-
ground flavors this worth-seeing pic-
ture. Choir selections exquisitely done
make up the greater part of the ac-
companiment and add a certain
touch not obtained by the customary
The appearance of Nicky's spirit
is continuously supplemented by a
weird musical wailing which builds
up the impressiveness of the final
scene. The combination of a misty
atmosphere and the concluding ac-
tion of Nicky permits every theater-
goer his own interpretation.
While we would recommend this
picture as relaxation over the week-
end, we do not say it is a particularly
intellectual or stimulating piece of

Here's an appropriate costume for that bicycling spree you're plan-
ning this weekend. It combines smartness and comfort. The culotts
could be worn with your favorite sweater, or a halter for that wonder-

Summer St udents
Are you a stooge, or aren't you
a stooge? Do you spend 15 hours per
day in the library, or do you take
time out to imbibe some good old
vitamin D? There's nothing like a
little wholesome relaxation mixed in
with book larnin' to keep you looking
fine and feeling even better.
The campus has much to offer the
summer school student in recreation-
al activities. There are four cement
courts and about a dozen clay courts
in back of the Mosher-Jordan Halls.
Miss Beise or Miss Hartwig will be
around to give the beginner a point-
er or two should she want instruc-
Then there's canoeing on the Hu-
ron River and Miss Crowe will be
glad to help out there. One can al-
so rent badminton equipment from
the Women's Athletic Building or
take a fling at archery and swim-
ming. Even picnic equipment can be
obtained from the Women's Athletic
Biulding. So do come out and find
your place in the sun!
