Hash,' Says
Coed Columnist
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a Groberg clas-
sic 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.
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 delightful tatoo 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 wor};:
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 disastrous. 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 number 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.

years ago also by wartime food short-
ages, Although dinner gave way to
a brief dessert at Recognition Night,
the traditional talks and awards were
presented. The event is scheduled for
Dec. 3, and the ball for early spring.
Theme Song
Assembly also sponsors the Date
Bureau and the Speakers' Burean,
now under the direction of Joy Baz-
Last year Assembly struck a new
note - and a musical one, with the
composition of a theme song:
"Assembly, we sitig to thee
As we sing to the Yellow and Blue.
We sing of staunchest loyalty
And a spirit strong and true.
Tssembly, we sing to thee,
Hear our voices loud and clear.
We are Michigan's Independent wo-
Who stand beside you through the

A Junior Girls Play, the traditional
Junior-Senior Night and varied sales
and publicity activities will again
ths year keep the campus aware of
the war stamp and bond campaign
which has been the Junior Girls Pro-
ject for the last four years.
.During the past year, campus
stamp and bond sales totalled $99,-
217.57. Among the activities which
helped to bring in this sum and
which will be continued next year
are bond and stamp sales in the co-
ed residences through special repre-
sentatives, sales in stamp booths and
on the Diagonal, in theUniversity
Hall and in the League, and special
events, such as Bow Days and stamp

Scripts Being Submitted
The scripts for this year's Junior

Girls Play are being submitted to
the script committee, and August 31
has been set as the deadline. Caro-
lyn Daley is general chairman of the
play, and the script committee is
composed of Barbara Brady, Janice
Carter and Lois Kelso.
In the Sixth War Loan Drive, JGP
of last year held its first Bow Day
and sold $232.55 worth of war stamps
attached to small ribbon bows. Fif-
teen Bond Belle teams of junior wo-
men canvassed the faculties of the
various schools and administrative
office of the University.
Stamp Bows
The April 23 Bow Day served the
double purpose of publicizing JG
play the following weekend and of
selling $179.65 in war stamps. As at
the other Bow Days, coeds manned
eight posts on campus to sell the pink
and blue stamp bows.
The 1945 Junior Girls Play, "Take
It from There," was presented April
26 in the traditional senior night
ceremony, and two additional per-
formances were opened to the public.
The play was written and produced
entirely by members of the junior
class and was financed by class dues.

strangle hold on you, be sure to ask,
"Is this grip really necessary?"

the War Council.

Guimaraes, will also keep a catalog
of activity cards, pictures of each

extracurricular activities. This cat-
alog is used as a reference+by cam-
pus honor societies and by the Social
Director in answering letters reques-
ing recommendations.
