Brides Wear
Pastel Shades
Pink, Blue Challenge
Usual White Gown
Bridal gowns in pastel shades
have come to the fore this year
and are beginning to break into
the circle of traditional white
Blush pink and ice blue are two
colors being chosen by many brides
this season, while an unusual or-
chid shade is featured by several
local stores.
* * *
TIESE COLORS are being used
alone and also with top skirts of
sheer fabrics to lend a softer, more
subdued tone.
Traditional white or ivory sat-
in with full, flowing trains and
floor-length veils, which are
correct in any season, are as
popular as ever, but nylon mar-
t ~quisette, 'silk mousseline, lace
and taffeta are coming into more
extensive use than before.
Summer brides are becoming
more conscious of the effectiveness
of warm weather inventions and
are providing this by the use of
crisp organdy and starched chif-
fon appliqued with floral, butter-
fly and bird motifs.
ECONOMICALLY-minded brides
are finding an ever-increasing
supply of gowns which can be used
later as dinner and dance dresses.
Among those are dresses with bo-
leros, stoles, redingotes and fitted
Jackets which, when removed, re-
veal attractive strapless formals.
One style features a full skirt
and train which can be removed
and has underneath a slim-
skirted dinner dress.
Bridesmaids, too, are wearing
these duo-occasion creations which
are being shown in woven satin
plaid on starched sheer chiffon
and white over-stripings on soft
pastels. In both brides' and at-
tendants' gowns, puffed sleeves
and boat necklines are popular.
* * *
ONLY A FEW years ago, unless
the bride was wearing a formal
gown, custom dictated that she
wear a suit, but this is not so any
more. This year a bride can wear
a dress of the traditional style ex-
cept for skirt length.
Ballerina weddings are quite
popular when a slightly more in-
formal ceremony is planned.
These shorter dresses cannbe
found in satin, lace over satin
and the sheer fabrics, and are
shown in the new pastel shades
as well as in white.
Spanish. styles in white are a
rather unusual type of wedding
gown being shown for summer.
One such dress is of Chantilly lace
with scalloped neckline, tight bod-
ice and a very full skirt with a
scalloped hemline. The Spanish
motif is completed with a mantilla
also of Chantilly lace.
JULIET VEILS, half-hats, bon-
nets and coronet caps are popu-
lar headdresses again this season
with lace and illusion veiling being
used, ofter with pearl trim.
Picture hats of crisply starched
organdy are shown for summer,
especially for garden weddings.
Halos of real flowers with veil-
ing attached are also featured.
For the bridesmaids there are net
caps gathered over each ear with
small feathered birds or fluffy but-
terf lies.

Women Practice on WAB Putting Green

Coed Begins
Own Evening
When that "close the books"
sleepy hour of 11 p.m. rolls around
each evening, students may find a
suitable background for their re-
laxed mood by listening on their
radios to a half hour of soft,
dreamy music and quiet chatter by
Carole Anderson, senior in speech
Miss Anderson's show, "Summer
Interlude," is designed for late
evening listening and can be heard
on WHRV Monday through Fri-
KEEPING in mind that the la-
ter hours of summer evenings are
the most relaxing, Miss Anderson
plays soft, slow records for her
listeners and comments during in-
tervals on vacationing, summer-
time activities and the styles of
well-known musicians.
Musical arrangements by
George Shearing, Billy Eckstine,
Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra,
Doris Day, Jo Stafford and Fred
Waring have been heard by her
radio audiences during the past
two weeks of the show.
Miss Anderson, who is from
Royal Oak, also sings on her pro-
gram. Her low, sultry-toned voice
sang out the musical notes of
such songs as "I Cover the Water-
front", "Laura" and "Blue Moon,"
on her first shows.
* * *
in radio and television, Miss An-
derson has been active in numer-
ous play productions and radio
shows on the Angell Hall Play-
house at the University.
In addition to her radio show,
she is also playing one of the
leads in the musical-comedy show,
"Anything Goes," which will be
presented by an Ann Arbor drama
group this summer.

PRACTICE SESSION-Three University coeds are shown practicing on the putting green at the
Women's Athletic Building. Fields and equipment are available for almost every kind of sport at
WAB. Students are welcome to make use of the facilities during the summer session and may re-
quest any sports program which they would like to see organized. Tennis, golf, softball and arch-
ery are among the most popular sports among the students.
Varying Widths To Be Seen in Fall Fashion

Although most coeds are still
shopping around for swim suits
and strapless cottons, there are
some who are surging out in the
midday sun to buy fur coats for
next winter and others who are
thinking about additions to their
fall wardrobe.
Coeds who would like to know
what to expect when the heat is
called off, will find that fashion,
once again, will accept a few of
the past styles and will inaugurate
a book-full of new ones.
* * *
THERE WILL BE two new fig-
ures for suits, the old stand-by of
every coed. One is slenderdown
to the hem but will sport drawn-
in curves. The jacket is padlessly
curved along the upper sleeves and
again over the hips, making the
waist look sucked in and ring size.
The other has a full skirt, the
jacket nipping in and then
arching out over the skirt: top.
Two-dimensional coats in three-
dimensional fabrics will take top
honors next fall and winter. Last
year's pyramid is this year's tri-
angle, say designers, a side-wide
coat with a flat front and back.
NARROW AT THE neck, often
sporting collarless collars, and
achieving a fuller look as the eye
travels to the hem, the coat will
have simple lines and will some-
times have the effect of an inside-
out appearance.
The fabrics look thick enough
to comb and curry, says one
manufacturer. Poddle cloths,
door-mat weaves and long-
haired (often patterned) fleeces
will be featured.
The black coat will be rich and
ribbed and will be outnumbered by
the Great Gray Coat, designed to
be suitable as an over-everything
* - *
FUR COATS will be short, with
lots of flair, say designers.
There will be more of those
dresses that aren't what they
seem. Their aprons come off
and become capes, they remove
their sleeves like gloves and they
step out of full overskirts as
slinky sheaths.
More decolletage per dress in
wide, square-cut , or stand-away
necklines is the fashion word for
fall. Skirts will be full too, but
they will also be seen in varying

ALL SHAPES of sleeves, enve-
lope, barrel, bouffant and oval are
in the book of "What to Wear"
next fall. The missing sleeve will
also stay through the winter.
A return of stripes, pleats under
new management, spiraling braids
and buttons, soft tweeds, "wrap"
dresses, the unclassic tweed smock
and the spreading top with the
slinky skirt will all make their ap-
Two-color shoes and shoes in
two leathers will rise to the top
of theapparel parade. Footwear
will be brief too-hanging on by
the thinnest threads of staps or
maybe built up over the instep for
evening wear.

All shades of yellows will be in
the sun on the diag. Other popu-
lar colors will be black-browns and
platinumized browns and colors to
weigh against gray or black.
