TO TAKE PART IN Of Bazaar Sellers


Sensational Feats And Acts Of Daring
To Take Place In Sawdust Arena
Of S. S. I. A. & C. Cureus
Circus days are coming!
The great Sophomore Sisters' In-
corporated, Amalgamated, and Con-
solidated Circus has finally consented
to a two-day engagement, to be ful-
filled on Dec. 2 and 3 with five un-
surpassed performances of their fam-
ous and stupendous show. They will
pitch their red and yellow tents in
Sarah Caswell Angell hall early on
the morning' of the second, and for
two days the place will be the scene
of utmost activity.
Sensational and original feats and
acts of reckless daring will take place
in the enormous sawdust arena of
the '. S. I. A. & C. Circus. Grand
and lofty tumbling, pirouetting, and
all the posturing known to the famous
India Rubber nman will be exhibited.
Artists on the tight rope, the trapeze,
and the bars, will perform at dizzy
heights, while from below the audi-
ence will gaze with wonder at the
enormous spectacle.
A menagerie of the fiercest possi-
ble description will accompany the
<. circus. Practically untamable ele-
phants, man-eating tigers, rare birds,
monster baboons, and the only sacred
giraffe in the world have been pro-
cured at enormous cost. Ohio, famed
as the most intelligent ring-tailed
ronkey, has been obtained for his
world's premier. performance in Ann
Arbor, and other beasts equally as
reputable will accompany him.
With the reliable old attractions
still on hand and startling novelties
still coming to the surface, a program
of sensational sideshows will appear
as part of the extravaganza.
The whole will be presented with
the aid of several famous clowns, each
and every one an artist of mirth. Pe-
ro, the peerless, the acrobat, will aid
the ring master and trainers through-
out each and every performance and
the circus audiences of Ann Arbor
will at last be permitted to know the
funniest clown of all history.
A band of heartless m'usicians will
accompany every act and feat of the
whole show in a manner not to f
surpassed by any of Ann Arbors
worst talent.
Sophomore women are still needed
and may notify Marjory Muffley, dial
9617, if they wish to take part. Mu-
sicians, menagerie, and property men
are in the greatest demand, but any
talent or lack of talent will be wel-
come. Practises take place in Bar-
bour gymnasium and a schedule ap-
pears daily on the bulletin board in
the hall there. It is im-portant that
all sophomores attend practises or
call the chairmen of their stunts to
be excused.
The Board of Representatives held
the second meeting of the semester
Saturday Nov. 19. Plans for the
Christmas bazaar were discussed, and
reports of the chairmen were given.
Jean, McKaig, '28, chairman of the
bazaar, told of the new luncheon ar-
rangements. Lunch will be served
from 11:30 until 1:30, dinner will be
served from 5:00 until 7:00, ai ea
will be served from 3:00 until 5:00.
These will be at popular prices,
luncheon at 75, and 50 cents, tea at
35 cents, and dinner at $1.00.
Besides the various things that the
houses are making for the bazaar the
league will offer Christmas and play-
ing cards. This undergraduate league
fund committee has made great
strides in redeeming the pledges. Last
year they bought the caps and gowns.
and this year the money will be clear

profit. The sale of chrysanthemums
was also quite profitable.
Janice Peck, '28, chairman of the
sellers committee, spoke about the
booths in the bazaar, and asked that
the girls give their preferences re-
garding the hours that will be r.ost
convenient for them to serve. The
shifts will run in three hour periods,
and will begin at three o'clock in the
afternoon and continue until nine at
night. Slips will be sent around to
the houses and the girls desiring hon-
or credit will put on it their name.
telephone number and the shiftthey
wish to Eerve. If for some reason a
house does not obtain a slip, those
girls who want the honor credit
should appear at the organization
meeting. It will be held on Wednes-
day in the gymnasium. There the
hours will be assigned them. The no-
tice will appear in the Daily.
Elsie Murray, '28, chairman of the
Undergraduate league fund explain-
ed about the work that must be don<
by her group. Women are asked to

When the women on the campui
at the University of Michigan begin
intensive practise in basketball di-
rectly after Thanksgiving, they will
indulge in the most recent of sports
and in one which has the distinction
of being invented and designed by a
single mind at one sitting.
In 1891 a lecturer on psychology in
the training school of the Young
Men's Christian Association at Plain-
field, Mass., while talking about the
mental process of invention, suggest-
ed that someone sit down and plat
a new game which had never been
devised before. One of the students,
a James Naismith became so interest-
ed in the idea that he went home to
think on the ni'atter that very night.
The game which Mr. Naismith de-
vised from is mind in a single eve-
ning was tried out in the class the
next (lay, by the Young Men's Christ-
Ian Association in the immediate fu-
ture and a little later in similar or-
ganizations' of near-by towns. In two
years its fame was of a very '$ide
range, and it steadily grew to be the
important sport which is now popular
in all schools and colleges and is
regulated Ly the Amateur Athletic

college are spending the first week of
six required in the three-home man-
agement houses. The girls have a dif-
ferent task during each of the six
weeks. One week a girl is cook, an-
other hostess, another has entire
charge of the baby, does all the buying
or assists in the kitchen. This actual
experience in keeping a home is re-
quired of all the three-home econ-
omics courses.

Initiation was held at Helen New-
berry, after which, as favors, the init-
iates were presented with corsages of
baby "mum's," tied with blue ribbon-
the colors of the sorority. Initiation
was followed by a banquet at the
Haunted Tavern.
Miss Evans addressed the club on
"Widening Horizon of Pi Lambda

tion as a profession to the place it
now holds as a school of specializa-
tion, and telling of the activities of
the various branches of the society
in other colleges.

New members of the sorority are

According to a questionnaire, fresh-
men wom'en at Iowa have a definite
purpose in taking physical education.
They are most interested in swim-
