H1IGH SCHOOL WARDROBES have to grow up a little before they
come up to the standards set by college coeds, and the formula
includes a bit of the casual and a dash of the trim,
Choose the basic and fundamentally practical type of clothes
and make sweaters, skirts and suits the piece de resistance of
your wardrobe. Plan them so that with a few goad things you can
always be well dressed and keep in mind that the campus trend
Is toward longer skirts and sweaters that fit, not bag.
In the extra-curricular clothes department, classic tailored- dresses
and suits that can be dressed up or down can't be beat on most Ann
Arbor weekends. A few occasions may pop up where sophistication
is in order so don't entirely neglect sequins and black.
POST WAR SOCIAL LIFE is reviving more traditional formals
every semester, which call for at least one or two formals cn
hand. The best plan is to have one all-out formal for the big affairs
and another for the semi-formal dances. If you are confined to the
minimum one choose a simple one that may be elaborated on or
prove striking for its simplicity.
Blue jeans and slacks should be confined to the dormitories
and Arboretum outings. The well-dressed University coed does not
appear in her eight o'clock with pajamas tucked up under her
i blue jeans and a scarf= covering the, hardware on her head after
a heavy date the night before. A wraparound skirt and a pullover
sweater is a more graceful solution to the problem of making
early Saturday morning classes.
On the truly practical side, a warm winter coat is a necessity.
Local thermometers have no respect for the cute but lightweight
toppers. And remember, if it rains anywhere in Michigan it is raining
in Ann Arbor, so be prepared with rain coat, rainhat and waterproof
boots. Matching raincoats and umbrellas are high fashion and have
their practical side.
THE ARB IS AS FINE for skiing and tobogganing as it is for its
other more famous virtues, so if winter sports are your meat
bring the appropriate toggery.
First impressions are important and good taste in clothes can-
help make yours a successful one. However, keep in mind that you
and your activities will mean more than the clothes you wear. College
women wear clothes well-suited to their activities, but are subordinate

Michigan, one of the first of the
large universities to become co-
educational, was the first to be
represented at an early national
alumnae conference, sponsored by,
the Association of Collegiate Al-!
umnae, now known as the Ameri-
can Association of University Wo-
Although Michigan alumnae!
have been active since the first
woman graduated in 1871, they
did not organize into a group un-
til 1917, when the Central Cor-
respondence Committee began
directing work "to do more for
Michigan women and to. stand
loyally by all interests and ach-
ievements of the University as ex-
pressed through her Alumni As-
The first project of the alum-
nae was to purchase a self-
help house, to be maintained by
women students. A house on
Washtenaw Avenue was occupi-
ed and in 1926, the Regents ac-
quired the present Mary Mark-
ley House, earlier known as
With the growth of alumna
groups, the name Central Cor-
respondence Committee was no
longer representative of the func-
tion of the organization, and ac-
cordingly, in 1920, it was changed
to Alumnae Council of Alumni
Until 1928, headquarters of the
alumnae, as well as of all wo-
men's organizations, were housed
in Barbour Gymnasium, which
had been built to accommodate
about 400women students.
The Women's League began
the fund for a separate women's
building in 1921, and the Alum-
nae Council embarked on x
campaign to raise $1,000,000 for
it. When half the sum was ac-
cumulated, the Regents donated
the land on which the building
now stands, and in June 1929,
the formal dedication took
The Council has a national
chairman and Board of Directors.
About 50 local groups are repre-
sented directly on the National
Alumnae Council, which meets
annually in Ann Arbor.
The first executive secretary of
the Alumnae Council was Mrs.
Mary Bartron Henderson, '94, who
served from 1917 until 1930. Mrs.
Marguerite Maire held the posi-
tion until 1932, and Mrs. Lucille B.
Conger succeeded- her.
Among the permanent projects
of the Council is a program of
student aid based on broad lines,
awarding of current scholarships
and fellowships. and :the establish-
ment of permanent endowments
