Sororities Arrange Breakfasts
Their Chapter Houses
Following Ball


Due to the exceptional demand
for tickets to the sixth annual Pan-
Hellenic ball, to be held Friday,
November 30, in the Union, the
quota of tickets has been increased
from 200 to 1250, according to an
announcement made yesterday by
Allene Yeo, '30, chairman of the
event. The increase in the total
number of tickets to be sold is
made possible by an arrangement
whereby two of the smaller rooms
off the main ballroom of the Union
will be opened for dancing.

Ifor the Pan-Hellenic ball is
still available due to the in-
creasein the allotment an-
n founced yesterday. These
tickets may be secured from I
Janet Calvert (7817), or j
Ailene Yeo (3718).
Morq than the originally allotted
200 tickets have already been sold,
it was announced by Janet Cal-
vert, '29, ticket chairman, though
some of the additional allotment
are still available. Women desiring
to purchase the extra tickets
should call Miss Calvert at 7817 as
soon as possible.-
Maurie Sherman's nationally fa-
mous recording orchestra will come
from Chicago to play for the event,
it-has been announced. Sherman's
dance band, which has gained a
national reputation through its
broadcasting and its theatrical
tours is at present engaged at the
College Inn in Chicago, which place
has released them from their con-
tract especially to enable them to
play for the annual women's party.
Sherman's orchestra is the highest
priced organization ever to appear
at a Pan-Hellenic ball, and one of
the most expensive orchestras ever
brought here.
Especially attractive decorations
of Pampas grass have been ar-
ranged for the party, it was stated
yesterday by Eloise Harnau, '29,
chairman of decorations. The
grass is being imported from Flori-
da by a local florist especially for
the event and the actual decorat-
ing will be in charge of James
Goodhew, local decorative expert,,
who has had charge of nearly all
of the major party decorations in
Ann Arbor for the past decade.
The present plans call for a unique
tropical setting of a variety never
before attempted at any of the

University parties.
A large number of sororities and
women's organizations have ar-
ranged breakfasts at their chapter
houses to follow the ball, and the
dancing at the ball itself will stop.
promptly at 1:30,. since an impera-
tive engagement the following day
will make it necessary for Sher-
man's orchestra to return to Chi-
cago at night. If present arrange-
ments are completed the dancing
will start at 9:30, it has been an-
Programs will be distributed

nounced by the committee.

Women's Athletic building, Betty

womens who were present for the
first time at a closed meeting of
the association. In the course of
her address she reviewed briefly
for the benefit of these new mem-
bers the outstanding facts of the
history of W. A. A. here at Michi-
gan, and referred them to the W.
A. A. scrap books which are kept
in the room in the new Athletic
building which belongs particularly
to the society.
The members of the executive
board, which includes the officers
and managers of the differentF
sports, and the members of the
faculty in the association were
then introduced informally to the
new members. Immediately fol-
lowing this, Dr. Margaret Bell, head
of the physical education depart-
ment, gave a short talk on some of
the subjects which are of special
interest on campus at present. A
discussion among the member:
followed and, the stand that W. A
A. would take in regard to these
questions was determined.
After the business meeting, tep
was served and a short program
which had been arranged by Dor-
othy Touff, '30, vice-president, wa
given by some of the members of
men students who wish to go auto-
riding outside the city limits are

600 women at Sydney. Fraternities
and sororities are unknown.

Charts providing a place for wo-
men to sign for the shift prefer-
ence for selling in the League ba-
zaar have been distributed to ev-
ery sorority house, every dormitoryl
and every league house canvassed
by the articles committee. These
charts will be posted on the bul-
letin boards in every house and
are the means through which the
women are given the opportunity
to sell at the bazaar, which is be-
ing held December 7 and 8.
There will be three shifts on Fri-
day, beginning at 1o'clock, the op-
ening of the bazaar. The shifts
will be from one to four, from four
to six, and from six to nine. Sat-
urday has been divided into fourl
shifts; from nine to twelve, from
twelve to three, from three to six,
and from six to nine. All women
are eligible, and each woman will
be awarded one activity point for
the one shift period allowed her.
The lists of all those who would
like to sell must be completed by
November 24 in order that changes
and rearrangements in shifts can
be made if necessary. Each wo-
man will be held responsible for
being atthe bazaar at the time for
which she signs.
This year, to be in keeping withI
the decorations and to help carry
out the idea of this bazaar, the wo-
men who sell will wrear bright cos-
tumes provided by the bazaar com-
mittee rather than the white and
colored smocks that have been used1
in previous years.
Women are urged to sign the
preference charts early, since in
case of confict preference will be
given according to the order in
which the names are listed. If
there is any question concerning
the selling of articles at the ba-
zaar, the information can be ob-
tained by calling Madge Brook, '29,
dial 7146, chairman of the Sellers
boards on the campus by the new-
ly chosen members the day after
their election.

attain membership in Senior Soci-
ety. The requisites, as for Mortar
Board, are high scholarship and
