(Special to The Daily)
only two weeks have passed since
I boarded the S.S. Volendam in
Quebec, I feel that I've had enough
experiences to fill a book; experi-
ences encountered during the ten
day voyage and during the four
days I spent in Holland.
Life on board ship was filled
with planned daily activities such
as movies, dances, lectures, dis-
cussions and deck games. Here
fifteen hundred students from
many colleges in the United
States, Canada and the Nether-
lands lived like one large family;
all members having similar goals
for the summer.
There were about forty students
on the ship from the University
of Michigan and at several re-
unions we had a marvelous time.

FOR GIRLS, blue jeans were the
accepted attire for informal activ-
ities, but once in Rotterdam,
Sandy Brown and I found our-
selves the objects of many staring
eyes. The jeans immediately
branded us as Americans and my
saddle shoes helped in this iden-
tification process also.
I found the people in Holland
very friendly and eager to help
us. One Dutch girl walked a mile
out of her way to take us to the
train station. In the cities, the
girls look well fed and well
dressed, although the "new look"
is not prevalent. The girls
seemed to admire American stu-
dents and many expressed a de-
sire to visit America.
It wasn't until I saw the quaint
Dutch villages of Maaken and
Valendam, where everyone dresses
in old Dutch costumes and wears
wooden shoes, that I felt apart
from modern civilization. In the
cities, the Dutch girls seemed
much like Americans but in these
villages, wearing ancient costumes,
hair in braids and wearing no lip-
stick, they might well have been
living in the 1700's.
* * *
BUT IT ALWAYS takes an oc-
currence to make a visit to a
country memorable. Sandy had a
cablegram from Queen Julianna's
private secretary saying the Queen
would be happy to see us when we
were in Holland. This was due to
Sandy's having known her when
she stayed in Massachusetts dur-
ing the war.
After arriving in Hague, we
found that the Queen was in
Soestdijk, but before leaving we
were shown through the Royal
Palace in our blue jeans which
were not worthy of the atmo-
sphere of marble, gilt and plush
in this seventeenth century pal-
ace. But in Soestdijk, we
changed into dresses in case we
would be lucky enough to meet
After talking to guardis, officers,
a private secretary and sending
a note to the Queen herself, we
were told we could meet her. So
accompanied by a private secre-
tary we walked up the winding
driveway past the glassed in porch
and to an entrance to the right
of the main entrance.
THERE IN THE doorway stood
Queen Julianna wearing a rust,
or maybe orange in Holland, dress
and white sandals. We shook
hands and enjoyed talking in-
formally to this attractive friendly
A limousine drove up and a
chauffeur helped the queen's
eldest daughter out. This little
girl, Trixie, will probably be the
next ruler of the Netherlands.
Our visit lasted about five min-
utes because the Queen was hold-
ing a conference. So, hardly able
to believe this actually happened,
we walked down the driveway and
to the station, en route for Col-

Fine fabrics have teamed up
with the new suit in flagging eyes
to its 1950 look.
Tweeds are a perfect example
of the glance-pulling materials.
Whether fine or coarse-grained,
nubby or smooth, homespun look-
ing or highly textured, tweed is
an eye-catcher. Surprise colors,
such as mauve and curry-yellow,
accentuate its virtue.
To aid the tweed in its tack of
appeal, woolens that are best
teamed with it, such as jersey and
woolknits, are used in making the
suave blouses and lining the jack-
ets of many of the fall's smartest
One of the smartest of these
ensembles is the suit with the

doubles as a three-quarter length

high hemline, a brown leather
