League Offers
Small Library
For Studying
Informal Atmosphere
Available to Coeds
For Reading, Relaxing
"Why didn't I discover this place
This has been the often heard
cry of graduating seniors and sum-
mer school coeds who happen to
wander up to the third floor of the
League during the last week of the
* * *.
THERE THEY found the quiet
and informal atmosphere of the
League library, a welcome place
for study and relaxation.
The traditional book-lined
walls surround a homelike set-
ting, where cushioned leather
chairs, tables, carpeted floors
and an old-fashioned fireplace
offer an ideal place for recrea-
tional and cultural reading and
"drowsing," if that be necessary.
Blue jeans and removed shoes
are legitimate, adding to the lib-
rary's appeal, for' the cozy retreat
is for women only.
STUDENTS may browse through
the 3,500 volumes of the library
and pick their reading material.
The shelves contain fiction, refer-
ence books, poetry, drama, bio-
graphy, music, encyclopedias and
President's Reports, which are us-
ed for information in writing Lea-
gue .petitions during the regular
school year. There is also an ex-
tensive collection of current and
back issues of popular magazines,
including Vogue, New Yorker, At-
lantic Monthly, House and Gar-
eden, Good Housekeeping and Ma-
Music school students and
others who are interested will
find the Carnegie collection of
music scores available for cir-
culation. The scores may be tak-
en out for a period of three days.
Record concerts are held dur-
ing the regular school year from
7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Fridays. Coeds
may bring dates to the listening
sessions, and smoking is permit-
ted. The scores of the pieces being
played may be followed or the bio-
graphies of the composers can be
read during the concerts.
** *
NEW BOOKS are also-constant-
ly being secured by the League lib-
rary- for circulation. Fiction and
non-fiction circulate for two weeks
and drama, poetry and periodicals
may be takegn out for three days.
The room is open from 1 to
5:30 Pm. daily and from 7 to 10
p.m. Mondays.
Newest addition to the library
is an outstanding drama section
which is being collected in memory
of the late Dean Alice Lloyd. Mor-
tar Board is in charge of the pro-
ject which began this year. It is
intended that the drama collection
will be one of the most outstanding
in the country.

A PORTRAIT of Dean Lloyd and
a parchment telling of her achieve-
ments will be placed on the wall

The library room was financed
and furnished in memory of Dr.
Jessie Morton Koessler, distin-
guished University alumna, by
her husband and brother.
Dr. Koessler, who studied medi-
cine here, designed a pictorial map

Volumes of books have been do-
nated to the library by various so-
cial groups, including 1,000 vol-
umes in honor of Dr. Koessler.
In 1939, reading programs were
held every Sunday afternoon, fol-
lowed by tea. These programs have
been discontinued, but a variety of
book displays and programs dur-
ing Book Week are still being held.

A Place for'Unlaxing'

MEN NOT ALLOWED-If the Union can do it, so can the League. In the quiet informal atmosphere
of the Women's League library, coeds will find a place for relaxation and reading-away from the
company of the male population on campus. Cushioned chairs, carpeted rugs, an old fashioned fire-
place and tables are found in the small library which has an extensive book and magazine stock.
Blue jeans and removed shoes are permitted as an added appeal to coeds who demand comfort
while they study.

From Loincloth to Bikini Suit
--Fashion's Influence Shown

Far outweighing the anguished
cries of husbands is the drive to
be "in style," and this fact has
been true for some five thousand
Fashion has held a powerful in-
fluence over the human race from
the time of the loincloth until to-
day-the time of the Bikini bath-
ing suit.
used to conceal physical defects.
The great Queen Elizabeth's neck
was not a thing of beauty, so she
sanctioned the use of the huge
ruff, which was not only beautiful
in itself, but served a purpose.
German scholars and Ameri-
can savants have written vol-
umes describing and analyzing
fashion, yet it remains indefin-
However, they have tracked
down some striking truths about
it, not all of them -flattering to
the human race, but all worth
pondering by manufacturers whose
existence depends on the fads of
the consumers.
SUPPOSEDLY, THE weakness of
fashion is expressed in fads. Each
departure from the custom, other-
wise known as a "fad," must be
small or it will not be accepted.
Originally, a fad is a personal
revolt against custom. If the de-
parture is followed by others, it
becomes a fashion. If not, it is
just a short-lived fad.
Fashion changes originate, part-
ly, in rebellion against boredom
and conformity. They may repre-
sent a protest against the obscur-
ity of the individual in a powerful

THEY MAY BE intended to add
to personal attractiveness; or to
hide a crooked leg under a long
skirt, to give the ego a needed
boost, or to satisfy a vulgar desire
for notoriety.
Styles obviously have some
connection with the desire to
catch the eye of the opposite sex

and to excite the envy of the
same sex.
But, most significantly of all,
fashion bridges the gap between
a social group and the group next
above it in prestige.

THAT IS, when people on the
wrong side of the tracks have
adorned themselves like the people
on the right side of the tracks, the
people on the right side, who orig-
inate fashions, must adopt some-
thing new to keep ahead of the
This is what a famous English
writer has described as "gen-
tility fleeing from vulgarity."
There is a little more to the
story, though, for "gentility"
would be quite upset if the "vul-
gar" crowd did not imitate gen-
tility's fashions.
Each new mode touches the one
ahead of it, or arises from some
necessity or conveniences of the
moment. For example, the vogue
for going barelegged arose from
the demand for comfort and the
wartime shortages of silk and ny-
lon hosiery.
According to fashion experts,
styles do not recur. "Evolution
without destination" has been used
to describe fashion changes.

Swim Classes
Beginners Can Learn;
Others May Review
Summer naturally means warm
weather-and with the hot, sultry
days one usually finds in Ann Ar-
bor about this time, the student's
first thoughts often center around
finding relief by going swimming.
CLASSES ARE still open in be-
ginning swimming for those
women who wear bathing suits
merely to get a tan and to inter-
mediate swimmers who would like
to perfect a few strokes.
Miss Fritzie Gareis, assistant
supervisor in physical education,
stresses the importance of being
able to swim and emphasizes
that women who do not know
how to swim should stay out of
canoes and other boats.
Swimming accidents are unnec-
essary, she said, when one can
learn to swim in eight weeks.
in the afternoons and intermediate
instruction is given in the eve-
nings. Information and registra-
tion may be secured at Office 15
in the Barbour Gymnasium.
Those coeds who enjoy splash-
ing in indoor pools and those
not able to get to the beaches
this summer, will find recrea-
tional swimming available to
them from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Tuesdays and Thursdays in the
Union pool.
Registration for instruction in
other sports is also still open by
the Women's Physical Education
Department. These classes include
tennis, golf, archery, modern dance
and posture, figure and carriage
for both beginners and intermedi-
MOST OF THESE classes, which
are being conducted for both re-
creational enjoyment and instruc-
tions, are open to both men and
women. The classes are small-and
will be designed to fit individual
needs, said Miss Gareis.
A health permit, which may
be obtained at Health Service,
is required for participation. Re-
gistration may be made in Bar-
bour Gym.
Coeds are also urged to request
any sport instruction or recrea-
tional program which they would
like to see organized. The Physi-
cal Education Department stresses
the fact that they have equipment
and facilities available for almost
every kind of sport.

Light summer jewelry is always
a popular addition to the July
and August fashion scene.
However, say manufacturers, it
needs special care to keep it fresh
and colorful.
Bracelets and necklaces of com-

household information services, by
shaking them gently in the suds
of a mild detergent cleanser and
String or cords on which beads

are strung can also be cleaned
in this manner, but the treatment

brush, then rinsed and dried.
