Costume Jewelry Is
Fad, Says Carl Bay
"'Women's costume jewelry is a fad
which will only last about a year," is
the prophesy of Carl Bay, owner of the
Arcade Jewelry :shop. Mr. Bay claims
that women realizing that this jewelry
is a passing novelty, are unwilling to
pay high prices for it.
"All costume jewelry is made in,
Europe," stated Mr.I Bay. "Not only
do they know how to make it better
than we Americans, but they can turn
it out much cheaper. If American
manufactures made costume jewelry,
they could not afford to sell it at the
present price.
"This type of jewelry, as a. rule,
consists of earrings, a necklace, and a]
bracelet. However, often a ring and
a pin are included in the set. The fav-
orite colors are yellow, paris blue, and-
green,' 'explained the jeweler.
Mr..Bay related an amusing incident
that every so often has happened ;n
connection with selling costume
jewelry. "Every once in a. while two
or three girls will com.e in and each
buy one piece of a set.

WOMEN ARE ADVISED BY PRESIDENT
TO ENGAGE IN INTER-COLLEGE SPORTS ''LUMNA,[, ASSOCIATI
Speaking recently before the Mid The cost would be well repaid by the
West Physical Education Society n inspiration gained." ANNOUNCES ITII S Uo

Detroit, President Clarence Cook Lit-
tle had an opportunity to state'his
views regarding women's athletics,
particularly upon the question of in-
ter-collegiate competition. A printed
copy of the speech has recently been
received by Dr. Margaret Bell, head
of the women's department of Physi-
cal Education, who was chairman of
the session addressed by President
Little. That his address was not an
official statement was one of the de-
clarations, of President Little. The
subject of inter-collegiate activities
for women is one of the most-discus-
sed in the world of women's athlet-
ics at the present time and one with
which all educators are concerning
themselves,
A resume of President Little's atti-
tude is to be found in his statement
that "if women students would visit
the campus of other universities, with
a serious objective in mind more than
they now do they would come back
with a greater appreciation of the
benefits which they have in their own
institution, and new ideas as well. Be-1
sides this they would see what pro-I
blems are common to all universities
and what problems are those of their
own institution and their own indi-
vidual selves. A stimulating reaction
is bound to be the result of a group
who are physically fit going to one
place to play a game with other girls
of their own age and training."
Constructive in its content was
President Little's next remark. 'I
should like very much to see an ex-
periment tried in which one of the
varions ' co-educational institutions
would send perhaps a hundred girls
for a joint Field day. The delegation
could include a field hockey team, a
tennis team, the gled club, a group to
act a one-act play in competition with
the dramatic organization of the op-
posite school, and any number of dif-
ferent interests could be represented.
Glee Club To Hold
Election Tomorrow

President Little qualified his re-
marks, however, with the statement,
that "men administrators will have to
be guided and just back up the plans
of the women who are In charge of
the physical education program for,
women, who are in atposition to kno A
a great deal more about the formation
problem than we are." He called at-
tention to the fact that there have
been investigations by bodies of wom-
en regarding this matter of inter-col-
Slegiate athletics which listed 114 rea-
sons against it and only 77 for it, but
he said "that does not prove that the
77 which are for it may not be more
vital than the 114 which are against
it "
In regard to professionalism enter

ing. the field of women's
President Little expressed
ion that there was little

athletics
the opu-
danger of

Women's sports ever becoming as;
professional as men's sports, "because,
men will not go to to see contests be-
tween women if they can see men's
contests in the same sports. Then too
there will never be as many women as
men with afternoons to spend loafing
at contests of this kind."
Among President Little's other ob-
servations at the Detroit meeting was
this one. "It is remarkable that Am-
erican girls and women have acquir-
ed the interest in physical education
that they have when the attitude to-
ward women which our'civilization'has
developed is considered. The idea of
a successful woman came to be, at
one time, that it was she who could
afford to avoid physical effort. Cer-
tainly in the Victorian period the
clinging vine idea was prevalent."
"Would the tendency be toward
more normality or less normality if
women had their own inter-collegiate
or inter-scholastic teams instead of
devoting both their time and energy
to ; following the men's athletic
teams?" "More normality" would be
the inevitable outcome, as President
Little sees it.
MISS SHAMBAUGH
TO TALK TO CLUB
The last meeting of the Women's
Educational club will be a social meet-
ing held at four o'clock this afternoon
at the club room in the Faculty Wom-
en's< Club house, on S'outh Ingalls
street. A short business meeting will
precede the social meeting, at which
plans for next year are to be dis-
cussed.

Announcement has ben made of the
.une meetings of the Alumnae Assoc-
iation of Michigan Women. The board
of directors will meet at the home
of Mrs. W. D. Henderson, 1001 Forest
Avenue, Thursday night June 14. The'
meeting will be preceded by a supper.
The regular council meeting isto 1
be combined with the annual meeting
o take place at 10 o'clock, Friday
June 15, in Room D, Alumni Memor-
ial Hall.
These meetings are to be followed
by an Alumnae luncheon at 1:00 o'-a
clock at Betsy Barbour- Dormitory, to
which Alumnae and friends are in-
vited. The program for the luncheon
will be announced later.
The increase in dues for member\
ship in the Women's League will be a
subject of discussion at these meet-
ings. Once more, the Alumnae Coun-
cil wishes to call attention to the fact
that this increase will take place the
first of July. It should be remembered
also that priveleges in the League
building are available to life members
and undergraduate women.
A 1)VISOR GIVES AID
IN FINDING WORK
University women may make ap-
plication for summer employment
through Miss Beatrice Johnson, one o1
the advisers of women. Miss Johnson
interviews applicants and secures
names of possible employers for them..
The two greatest sources of summer
employment, according to Miss John-
son, are pastimes as counsellors in
camps and hotel work. Hotel manag-
ers write to Miss Johiison, stating the
type and number of positions open. A
large percentage of such positions are
obtained, however, by the applicant
writing directly to the manager of the
hotel, stating that they desire work in
that particular place.
Miss Johnson also runs notices in
the issue's of the Michigan Alumnus
calling attention to the fact that a
great deal of student help is availably
during the summer months. In this
way any available positions are tap-
ped.
During the summer session in Ann
Arbor, places in private homs are
available. In these cases the student
usually secures her room and board in
return for four hours work daily. Po-
sitions in local tea rooms and dormi-
tories are also usually available.
Some calls come in for cashiers and
jhostesses.

FRESHMEN YIELD
TO SENIOR TEAM
In revenge for their defeat Monday
at the hands of the freshmen, the
seniors beat the frosh baseball team
by a 'score of 13 to 5 at Palmer field
yesterday afternoon. The seniors
showed much better ability at bat,
Appelt, Child, Beaumont, and Powers
doing excellent stick work. The freah-
men were not playing their best de-
fensive game, but Wood, Koch, andl
Whitney each hit several two-baggers.
At the same time the juniors de-
feated the sophomores, 19 to 1. This
puts the juniors in first place for the
interclass championship. The fresh-
man had received only one defeat up
to yesterday, but the beating admin-
istered by the seniors put them defin-
itely out of the running.
Lineup. Seniors: Beaumont, Pow-,
ers, Child, Bonine, Appelt, Folsom,
Hough, Robinson, Tuthill. Substitutes,
Wright, and Van Tuyl.
Freshmen: Wilson, Koch, Schafer,
Whitney, Locke, and Wood.
