To Hold Annual Supper Preceding
Opening Performance Of
Junior Play
Appearing in their caps and gowns
for the first time, senior women will
hold their annual Senior Supper at
6:30 o'clock Monday at the Union,
preceding the opening performance
of the Junior Girls' Play, "For The
Love Of Pete," which they will at-
tend following the supper.
According to tradition this initial
presentation of the play is dedicated
to senior women. Originally the play
was presented before them alone but
in recent years it has been opened to
the general public. The evening is
enlivened by impromptu seletions
from last year's play, presented by
former participants.
Special tables will be reserved at
the supper for Senior Society, Mor-
larboard Society, and the Advisers to
Women. The advisers will be the
guests of honor of the senior class.
No definite program has been plan-
ned for the supper, according to Mar-
garet Meyer, vice president of the
senior literary class, and chairman
of the affair. Singing will be led by
Nellie Hoover and Margaret Cole,
who will be remembered as two of
; the male leads in last year's play.
Spring flowers will form the decora-
tive motif for the supper.
s Tickets for the supper are $1.60;
they will be on sale from 2 to 5
o'clock today and tomorrow in Bar-
bour gymnasium. Immediately fol-
lowing the supper, a line of march
will be form'ed; this line, will pro-
ceed -on State street to Williams,
down Williams to Main and then to
the theater. The senior line will be
led and directed by Junior Honor
Guards, a complete list of whom will
be announced.
Mortarboard Society will head the
line, followed by Senior Society, they
in turn followed by the seniors of
all schools, including the nurses,
marching in twos. Both seniors and
Junior guards are asked to watch
The Daily for further direction as
to the march.
Miss Meyer has been assisted by
Jean McKaig, who has been in charge
of the sale of tickets, Alice Fouch,
Adele Ewe, Adeline O'Brien, and
Alice Felows.

OHIO STATE.---An all around de-
velopment which stresses a pleasing
personality as much as high grades
should be the aim of more students,
according to Dr. Edward R. Weidlein
of the Mellon Institute, Pittsburgh.
According to the reports of movie
men, people hearing their own voices
the first time on the vitaphone general-
ly never recognize them. In fact it is
quite a while before they can be con-
vinced that it really is their own.
One man in this new business of
"talking movies" said that people
would be just as surprised if they
were not to see themselves in a mirror
for years and then they should sud-
denly have the opportunity of behold-
ing their images.

But we do see ourselves in the mir-
ror, and thus are constantly striving
to improve our personal appearances.
Would that the same thing in the
future may happen to our voices.
One, might say 'if we could only hear
ourselves as others hear us." The
improvement many person's might
make in their voices after listening to
unmusical and often jarring tones is-
suing from the vitaphone is an experi-
ment worth trying.

About 25 members of Athena wit-I
nessedthe initiation of 9 girls Tues-
day night at the Chi Omega house.
The girls that were initiated are the
following: Dorothy Wilson, '31;
Dorothy Airby, '29; Adrienne Jacobs,
'31; Dorothy Weed, '28Ed.; Isabel
Thorpe, '30; Lucetta Moss, '29; Les-
lie Franz, '31; Ann Goldberg, '31; and
Freda McMillian, '30. After initiation
bridge was played and refreshments!
were served.
At the next meeting of Athena the
members will participate in a mock
trial with Alpha Nu. A jury will be se-
lected from the audience.
Program Is Given To
Raise League Pledge
The Association of Michigan Wom-
en of Royal Oak sponsored a Michi-
gan program recently whereby they
raised about three fourths of their
pledge to the league. The University
band wa-s invited to Royal Oak and en-
tertained at dinner by a men's group
of Michigan alumni. After the dinner,
the band gave a concert in the Royal
Oak high school auditorium, which
was filled to capacity.
Three members of the cast of the
Junior Girls' play, "From Eight 'Till
Eight," produced last year, were also
featured on the program. The pro-
gram was received enthusiastically,
according to a member of the Uni-
versity who was present.

Compulsory chapel, no dancing, and
J no theater-going are among the fea-
tures of Mount Holyoke college in
1887, according to some observations
recently published. This was about
the time of the fiftieth anniversary of
the seminary, and many ideas were
clung to which had been popular dur-
ing the first years of the college's ex-
In the period from 1887-1890 not
only were there compulsory chapel
every morning and prayer at night,
church, Bible class, and evening serv-
ice on Sundays, and' prayer meeting
Friday evening, but each student was
required to spend half an hour every
morning and evening absolutely alone
and presumably engaged in devotional
reading and prayer. Also, if she
wished to stand well with the faculty,
she had to attend prayer meeting
every night in the week in some teach-
er's room. On Sunday no one was al-
lowed to go out of doors except to
church, except for half an h'our be-
tween 5 and 5:30 o'clock in the after-
noon, and then only on one particu-
lar lawn.
A few girls who danced together in
the gymnasium were forbidden to do
so when it was found out. During
1889, Booth, Barrett, and Modjeska
played "Macbeth" in the city of Hol-
yoke four miles away. Some of the
girls wanted to make up a party to
go to see them, but were told that it
could not be thought of. "What would
people say if iit got into the papers
that Mount Holyoke students had been
to the theater."

The basketball season is over, and
already fickle fans are forgetting its
past glories and are turning with
enthusiasm to baseball. The cham-
pionship team which emerged froml
the past season's strife, at least in'
the realm of class competition, was
that of the senior majors. Besides
winning all four of its scheduled
games, it answered a challenge from
the "Non-efficients," faculty and
alumnae team, by defeating them.
"But we didn't just romp through
the tournament to an easy victory,"
was the emphatic statement of Nellie
Hoover, captain of the team. "In fact
we fought some very close games,
ind-well, twice we won by only 3
Practically all of the champions
were also members of the junior ma-
jor team last year, and all of them
have had considerable previous bas-
ketball experience. Nellie Hoover,
side center and captain of the team,
has played on the Varsity team of thej
Sargent school of Physical Education,I
Marva Hough was a member of the
Varsity at Kalamazoo State Teach-
ers' college, Sarah Bonine played all
through high school and four
years here on the campus, and El-
eanor Treadwell was on her class
team at Sargent.
Helen Beaumont and Eunice Child,
forwards, are two of the three mem-
bers who played together on the
,reshman basketball team, and have
continued to do so, off and on, during
their entire four years on the cam-
Spus. Martha Robinson, guard, com-
pletes the triumvirate of the players
who have worked together since their
freshman days.
Mildred Hardy is one of the team's
most versatile players, filling the po-
sition of center, side center, and for-I
ward equally well. Before coming to
the University she played for one
year on the Varsity team at Detroitl
Teachers' college, and was at the
same time a member of the Central
Nationals, a team organized by the
Central Methodist Church, in Detroit,
and the holder of the state cham-
pionship for five years.
It is a singular fact that almost
all of the champions took part in
the intramural tournament which has
just been concluded leaving Group I
the undisputed victor. Eleanor Tread-
ell played with Group I; Helen Beau-
mont with Martha Cook; who were
runners-up in the tournament. Mil-
dred Hardy played with Betsy Bar-
bour and Alpha Xi Delta, Nellie
Hoover with Kappa Delta, Martha
Robinson with Helen Newberry and
Sarah Bonine and Marva Hough with

even been placed upon the windows
to prevent them from going through.
All precautions have been taken to
keep the players from undergoing the
same grievances experienced by
housewives and the pesky flies, al-
ways so dominant in spring.
Flies alone are not the only dif-
ficulties which the baseball aspirants
are trying to overcome. The eager
players have uncovered too great a
number of fouls getting mixed up in
their game. They strike, but still they
do not go out. And it is all because
of fouls. Plenty of tips have been
rolling off the bats, too, and the stars
realize that the tips don't get them
any place. So they engage in run-
ning bases. They get to one base
and someone tags them and they go
out. Or else they make a bee-line
for home. When they hit the plate
they become hungry. Then they de-
cide they've had enough for one day,
and they quit. But-so it is with.
It is such difficulties that the in-
door baseball fans have so far en-
countered and the practises have
been going on only a few days. The
first games of the season's tourna-
ment have been sluggish. Errors
have been prevalent. The player's
arms have not yet warmed upi to
powerful swings which will send the
ball to left field or to center field.
From the mound, no curve balls
have been flung; the catchers are
still a bit cautious in getting close
to the bat; the balls are even a bit
dead and still reek with camphor.
But the season has just begun. And
so early in the year home-runners
are not even desired, let alone ex-
With the abundance of material
which has turned out with hopes of
making a team, with a bit of prac-
tice, and with the pep shown by the
22 organizations which have signed
up for the annual tournament, "it
will be a dandy baseball season," ac-
cording to those in charge at Bar-
bour gymnasium.

"Varsity Team Holds
Meet ByTelegraph
Taking into consideration that a
new target was put in -use for the
first time last Saturday the Varsity
rifle squad showed up very well in
its competition shooting with Mich-
igan State College. Results from
Michigan State have not been receiv-
ed in Captain, Bricker's Office to date,
due to the fact that the scores are
sent by mail.
The five high-point scorers on Sat-
urday were Rowena Stillman, '28,
with 97; Merle Raine, '29, 95; Irene
Cook, '29, 93; Maurice Jones, '28L,
91; and Helen Clinton, '30, 90. The
other Michigan women who fired for
scores on Saturday were Eleanor
Coryell, '29, Miriam Hosmer, '28Ed,
Eleanor Short, '29, Elsie Hauschild,
'29Ed, and Marion Hyslop, '28Ed.


"I have never ;intimately known a
college or a university in a small
town. My undergraduate days were
spent at Barnard, and I have been
closely connected with Columbia and
Barnard ever since," said Dean Gild-
ersleeve of Barnard in an interview.
"A large number of Barnard students
live in New York, while the rest live
in dormitories.
"Colleges for women in the East
during the past ten years have lost a
great deal of 'college spirit.' The stu-
dent council at Vassar resigned be-
cause of lack of interest, and those of
other women's colleges were equally
unsuccessful. College life as it is pic-
tured does not exist.
"There are no sororities at Barnard.
A number of sororities had chapters
there but they were abolished, not by
vote of the college authorities but by
the students themselves! They
thought that unless all could belong
to some such organization, none
should exist. Sororities as such do not
exist in most of the women's colleges,
although the 'club' system exists in
some. The 'clubs' choose those fresh-
men they want, and the freshmen
choose the 'club' they wish to join. It
is a system of preferential bidding
such as exists in sororities.
"Barnard each year exchanges one
student for one with some foreign
country," Dean Gildersleeve explained.

"The students from the foreign coun-
try are often chosen by their federal
government. In Fran-ce, the Minister
of Public Instruction does this. This
year we have a student from Esthonia
one of the republics carved out of the
Russia of pre-war days. We have
students from many European and
Asiatic countries. We tried to ex-
change a student from Russia, but
were unsuccessful."
did not actually refuse diplomas on
that account.
members on this team were chosen
for The All-Star team last year, Nel-
lie Hoover, Mildred Hardy, and Mar-
tha Robinson. Martha Robinson, Nel-
lie Hoover and Sarah Bonine are
members of the all - star team this
"Physical education seniors should
be able to play basketball pretty well
and know the technique and rules
perfectly," remarked one of the team.
"All of the training and experience
we have had in other sports and all
we have studied should have devel-
oped accuracy and endurance. These
always count in a tournament."
An admirable record for this team
went down in the books at Barbour
gymnasium this year. Comparatively
few fouls were scored against them
during the whole season and no
member of the team was put out o°
the game for fouls.
