Alumnae Council Receives Amount In
Life Menibership Pledges
To Wmen's League
CONTINUE INTENSIVE DRIVE I
More than $8,500 in new life mem-
bership pledges have been received by
the alumnae council office during the
last two weeks as the result of a let-
ter which was snt to all Michigan
alumnae who wegre not already mem-
bers of the League.
The point stressed in the letter was
the fact that only League members
would have access to the privileges
"which the building when finished will
entail, and that the membership fee
will be raised after the intensive drive
is over. The present membership fee
is only $50 and the $8,500 which has
come into the office as the result of

1Mr. W. D. Henderson, executive
secretary of the alumnae council, stat-
ed that the response to this letter was
one of the most encouraging things
that had happened during the cam-
paign. "After all," she added, "it is
the active membership that will keep
the League alive and growing, a ben-
efit to its members and to those who
come in contact with it."
As the last of these letters were not
sent out until last Saturday, more life
membership pledges- are coming in
every day and an be expected to con-
tinue for another week or more.

TEXAS WOMEN. ORGANIZE
Women of the University of Texas
now have an organization, as the re-
sult of a constitution which was pass-
ed unanimously recently by the Stu-
dent's assembly. This constitution pro-
vides for a Women's association,
which is to be composed of women of
the University. Its legislative, body
will be the Women's assembly, whichj
will elect officers of the association.
The Women's association will have
jurisdiction over all of the women stu-
dents of the university with the final
consent of the Student's assembly.

'LA 'ERSKIN E SIX'
E ST CONFORTABLE
AU S U P REME DE G RE"--L'AUTO, PARIS
"Still setting the style pace, aren't you? Glad I'm not the parent who pays
and pays and pays. "
"Ah, that's the point. It's an Erskine Six and economy is its secret passion.
Don't judge its cost 3y its appearance."
;I i 'l'.

SPEAKING frankly, who cares a fig for bore and stroke,
cubic displacement and all of that. The car of today
is the one that slips through traffic like an All-American
halfback wriggles through a broken field; turns on a
dime with nine cents change and pops into a parking
space with a hair's breadth clearance front and rear.
To match the spirit of American youth a motor car must
have "It." "It" is the ability to chase the horizon all
day without pantidg; smart good looks that do credit
to the intelligence of its owner and riding comfort that
wins a sigh of complete ease.
That's why the Erskine Six Custom Coupe is taking
America's youth by storm. Style conceived in Paris-
design by Dietrich, the master designer-speed that lets
you decide whether or not the car behind will pass. And,
will it stand up? Studebaker builds it-Q. E. D.
Take possession of an Erskine Six today. Drive it over
roads other cars fear. Forget the gearshift lever. Revise
all your notions of motoring. You're riding in a car
. that has set a new pace for others to try and follow.
The Erskine Six Custom Coupe, as illustrared, sells for $4y' f. o. b. factory,
"emphte with front and rear bumpers and self-energising 4-wheel brakes.
