President Little Urges Student Sup-

90 Per Cent
CANVASS THIS WEEK
President Clarence C. Little in urg-
ing support of the life membership
drive for the Women's league building
stated, "Upperclassmen should have
developed an unselfish loyalty to the
University by this time and should
pledge life memberships for that rea-
son; underclassmen in addition should
pledge because in all probability they
will have a chance to use the build-
As the time allotted by the Regents
for the completion of the quota of
$1,000,000 is commencement of 1927 it
is necessary that undergraduates,
graduates, and friends assume at once
full responsibility. Only one half of
the required amount is raised so far,
leaving but one year and four months
in which to secure the remainder.
SMrs. W. D. Henderson, newly ap-
pointed executive secretary of the
alumnae council, commented on the
campaign, "I am certain," she said,
"that the task, enormous as it appears,
can be accomplished. This will be
true, however, only in case everyone
assumes their full responsibility. The
new slogan is 'Break Ground for the
University of Michigan league build-
ing June 1921.''
Four hundred thousand dollars re-
mains to be raised out of the $1,000,-
000 stipulated by the board of regents
of the University as the necessary
amount before the league building
may be started. If the students re-
spond to the campaign for pledging
life memberships it will be possible to
start the erection of the building June
Outsiders have raised 90 per cent
of the $600,000 already contributed,
and it is up to the students who have
only contributed 10 per cent of the
amount or $60,000 to show these out-
siders that the need of the new build-
ing is recognized by subscribing for
life memberships in the campaign be-
ing held this week.
House to house canvass will be car-
ried on until Friday night when the
percentages of the various houses will
be registered on a large chart made
for this purpose. Subsequent inter-
views will be made during next week.
wNow that the work of raising the
money for the league building is en-
tirely in the hands of Michigan grad-
uates, Michig'an students should die
loyal'in aiding the fund.

Change Date For
Dates for the performance of the
Junior Girls' play "Becky Behave"
have been changed to March 23 to 27.
The production will be offered at the
Whitney theater as is the custom.
Six performances will be offered to
the public, one each night and a mati-
nee on Saturday. The first perform-
ance is given especially for senior
women who attend in cap and gown
after a banquet at Barbour gymna-
sium, and this year the last perform-
ance on Saturday night is to be given
primarily for the alumnae although
the general public is invited.
Steps are being taken by the cen-
tral committee to advertise and
arouse interest in the proposed alum-
nae night. Helen Reece, business
manager, has superintended the print-
ing of circulars, mail order blanks
and other advertising material that
will be sent to the Pan-Hellenic and
alumnae organizations of the large
cities in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois.
These mail order blanks are to be
returned to Miss Reece by March 9
and seats will be reserved according-
ly. As many as six may be ordered
together. The Hill Auditorium sale
of tickets will be on March 19, 20 and
The cooperation of the sororities on
campus is highly essential to the suc-?
cess of alumnae night, and many of
the organizations are planning to
give alumnae week-end parties. The
Women's league will endeavor to ar-
range accommodations for any of the
alumnae who desire them.

Who Do More Than Just Sell
Individualized Costuming is part of
Goodyear's Advisory Service
'ACH new season brings new modes and stamps them
as "fashionable," but the perfectly costumed woman
knows that being well dressed demands something more than
picking out one of the new modes in a haphazard fashion,
donning it, and walking out on the avenue.
It necessitates rather, a careful consideration of the styles and
the adaptation of those style tendencies suited to the wearer's
type, her tastes, her age and mode of life.
To assist women in determining these things our salespeople
are ready with helpful suggestions and equipped with most
distinctive apparel, fabrics and dress accessories with which
to carry out their suggestions..
