Dogs, Drunks,

Out of Union+
Dogs, drunks and dames . .. these
are the cardinal points of the taboos
of the Michigan Union.
But the monastery will admit the
third under certain prescribed and
rigid conditions. To protect the last
surviving stronghold of male suprem-
acy on the campus, these rules are in
operation :
1. The Union is a men's club, and
is therefore governed as such. The
rules regarding women are similar
to those of other men's clubs.
2. Women may not enter the
front door. They may enter by the
side door if they enter legally .. .
that is, under the conditions listed
here. Help, freight and 'women
must use the north entrance.
3. During Union membership
dances, the main ballroom and ad-
joining corridors are open to
4. The Pendleton Library and
the basement taproom may admit
women during dances and special
5. Women must remove their
hats when attending Union dances.
6. The first floor lobby is open to
women only on football week-ends
and on special occasions, such as
the recent G.I. Stomps. Women
may work in ticket booths in the
lobby under special permission.
Women may also enter to buy bus
tickets at the main desk.
7. Women may be admitted for
special meetings, such as those of
Bomber Scholarship and the Post-
War Council.
8. Between the hours of 10:30
a.m. to 6 p.m. women, if accom-
panied by Union members, may be
shown through the building. How-
ever, woman guests may not enter
the area of the swimming pool.
The' Union breaks down twice a
week and permits women's swimming
classes to be held in its pool. Other-
wise, the Union and all its facilities
are for men only.

Women interested in camp-coun-
selling are invited to attend a meet-
ing at 7:30 p. m. Wednesday, Nov.
22, in the W. A. B., of the CAMP
will meet monthly for discussions on
counselling and related subjects.
The officiators have their place in
the OFFICIALS CLUB, headed by
Irene Turner. Anyone interested in
learning how to officiate at intra-
mural volleyball, basketball, or soft-
ball games is invited to attend the
organization meeting at 5 p.m. Wed-

'Fashions Are
Hash,' Says
Coed Columnist
'Spinach' Theory Refuted as
Variations in Woman's Moods,
Wardrobe Are Brought Forth
Editor's Note: This is a Groberg classic
on college fashion which we believe
bears repeating.. It was first printed
in the Daily on November 2, 1943.
Contrary to the claims of promi-
nent fashion authorities . . . i.e. that
fashion is spinach . . . common ob-
servation tells us that there is a
little more to it than that.
Indeed, if fashion is spinach, then
the Michigan coed is a victory gar-
den and Ann Arbor is a veritable
hotbed of vitamins. No, fashion won't
be spinach until things get a lot
worse than they are now . . . and
when that day comes the chances are
that we'll all be wearing slacks .all
over the place.
Well if it isn't spinach what is it?
It's a little hard to tell yet, but it
shouldn't be hard to find out.
Some prominent coeds maintain
that fashion is hash . . . and they
can prove it. The Michigan coed,
they point out, divides her time be-
tween trying to look like a man and
trying to look like a woman. Thus,
in her more masculine moments she
slouches around town, moccasins
beating. a delghtful tattoo on the
pavement, coat flung open to the
October breeze (system flung open to
pneumonia), trouser pleat in her
skirt (c'est la guerre, but c'est also
the Michigan woman's idea of what
a well-dressed skirt will wear) and
something terribly tailored in the
way of a blouse hanging out of some-
thing terribly tailored in the way of
a blazer.
Now, this state of affairs is not to
be condemned . . . for with women
doing everything from factory work
to truck-driving their whims must
not only be tolerated, when it comes
to clothes, but they must be catered
to in no uncertain terms. Similarly,
when the sweet young coed expresses
the desire to roll her blue Jeans up
above her knees, any effort to inhibit
such action might not only be proven
unfair but absolutely dsastrous. The
sweet young coed, you will remem-
ber, is fast turning into a hardened
As for the other side of the picture,
a woman is still a woman and there
are moments in her life . . . even
now .. when she wants to look like
one. Thus we have the velveteen
dress, the black nimber that knocks
them over at first sight, the high
heel, the "she's-engaged-she's-lovely-
she-uses-soap" look, and the long,
bloody fingernails which threaten the
life of many a well-meaning but
lonely soldier. Here, of course, she
reverts to type . . . forgets the be-

double purpose life. Suits and
coats that will serve for semesters
