Korean Styles
ProVe Unusual
Although khaki and battle-hel-
mets seem to be the vogue in Ko-
rea currently, the traditional
dress of the natives varies radi-
cally from these familiar uniforms.
The absence of buttons and but-
ton-holes in Korean dress is one
outstanding difference from Am-
erican attire. Ribbons are used for
belts and fastenings.
POCKETS ARE also missing.
Their place is taken by a small
bag attached to the belt by a cord.
All men wear jackets and vol-
uminous trousers.
For outdoors a flowing tunic,
sometimes of silk or satin, is worn
over jacket and trousers, reaching
somewhere between the knees and
the ankle.
WOMEN WEAR skirts in addi-
tion of the Korean jacket and
trousers, changing styles being re-
flected in the length of the skirt
or the jacket, and in the width of
the sleeveband.
The skirts of elderly women
touch the ground, but school-
girls and young women wear
shorter lengths.
One of the most important parts
of feminine dress is the horitti, an
embroidered or hand-woven waist-
band worn between the jacket and
the skirt. A bride's horitti is usual-
ly presented to her as a wedding
gift by her uncle or aunt.
On ceremonial occasions women
sport ornamental hats resembling
Men's hats, which are made of
silk, split bamboo, or horsehair,
are always black except in the case
of young bridegrooms, who wear
hats of yellow straw, or of per-
sons in mourning, who wear white.

Norman's Band
Will Be Heard
At 'Beach Ball'
League Council Sets
Annual Casual Event
Entertainers Slated
Everything from sea serpents
and fish nets to a yacht will be
seen at the second annual "Beach
Ball", which will be held from 9
p.m. to midnight Saturday in the
League Ballroom.
Sponsored by the Women's Lea-
gue Council, the dance takes the
place of the traditional League
summer formal, which was discon-
tinued last year when the first
"Beach Ball" was held.
** *
THE DANCE will be informal
and matched to the casualness of
the summer session.
Music-maestro for the evening
will be Ken Norman. His band
is well known in Southern Mi -
chigan. Norman has played for
many fraternity and sorority
parties on campus, as well as
for the annual Caduseus and
Blackfoot Balls.
He also plays in other nearby
college towns and in ballrooms
and country clubs. Norman had an
orchestra at Syracuse University
for 10 years before he came to

NORMAN'S orchestra is noted
for a sweet, danceable, ballad
style and a distinctive sax section.


TROTH TOLD-Mr. and Mrs. Harold E. Garrett of Detroit and
Miami Shores, Fla., have announced the engagement of their
daughter, Beverly Ann, to Norman William Risk, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Norman Mitchell Risk of Petosky. A former president of
Delta Zeta, the bride-to-be is a 1948 graduate of the University.
She is now completing graduate work in the education school. Mr.
Risk graduated from Michigan State Normal College, and com-
pleted his graduate work at the University, where he affiliated
with Phi Delta Kappa and Iota Lambda Sigma. He is now an
assistant professor at Michigan State Normal. The couple plans
a Spring wedding.

In the first study of its kind in
six years, a life insurance organi-
zation has announced that most
"ordinary" life insurance policies
which women bought last year
were purchased by young women
under thirty.
The new study, which took a
year to complete, represents an

Staekrep e au4, sho

analysis of many thousands of life
insurance policies purchased by
the American public during a typ-
ical month last year.
This report gives a reassuring
view of the continuing economic
progress of women since the war,
or at least of those millions of wo-
men who bought life insurance
since then.
More women are buying life in-
surance and they are buying lar-
ger policies.
The average ordinary life insur-
ance life insurance policy bought
by women last year was forty per-
cent larger than it was in 1942.
"Ordinary" excludes life insur-
ance which women purchased on
weekly premium plans or through
their employers.
Peak age for buying life insur-
ance for women is between 20 and
24, the report shows. Almost 30
percent of all policies issued to
women over 15 went to this age
Women who already owned some
life insurance purchased larger
policies in 1949 than women who
had no previous insurance.
