The chairman of the affair an-
nounces that it is to be "something
different" and the plans seems tc
bear out this statement. Tennis
nets are to be used in the decora-
tions to resemble fish nets, of
course, and all guests should be
careful not entangle themselves in
them. In order to get the women
acquainted with one another, each
«.one will be signed to a royal order
of a certain fish as she enters, and
then members of one order will

A party of students and faculty
members of Texas colleges is being
organized to tour Mexico during
the summer of 1929 by an Illinois
University student, J. W. Woodruff,
a junior in the Literary college.I
The tour will start about the mid-
dIe of summer in order to be in
Mexico during the cool climate.
Meeting in San Antonio, they
will travel to Mexico City on a
special train. They will visit Vera
Cruz by the famous mountain
route, Guadaljara in the mountain
lake district, known as the "Swit-
zerland of America," and the opal
Mines of Queretaro. Some of the

cents, -one may have his fortunel

About 35 years ago Ypsilanti was
known as a woman's school and
Ann Arbor as a men's. There were
between five and six hundred stu-;
dents at Ypsi. Mrs. Ellen Rossen
attended there, and later taught
school for several years.
"The college women of today are
more flapperish, but also morea
self-possessed and resourceful.
They probably took their work1
more seriously then, though hu-
man nature remains the {same,"j
she said in a interview.1
"When I taught school, the
pupils were each given a number,1
and went by that through theI
year. They answered to it instead
of their names. While calling rollj

some of them claim to-we would

And if they won't consider the

ed professors and instructors. I'm
sure they don't enjoy their turkey

-any more than we do for think-

kknow that those students whotare

probably will be physically incap-
able of listening to a lecture or of
reciting due to the fact that they
consumed too much turkey or
something today.
There really is something to be
thankful for though, and that is
'that the auto ban was raised for
a whole day. The only thing is
that it wasn't announced in time
for most of us to have our cars
shipped to us here at school, and
since comparatively few people
live near enough to go home,. they
won't have much chance to avail
themselves of the privilege. But
then, I know we should be thank-
ful for small favors and I do here-

becomes ill over the holiday.

Landscape design is a field of

to women, according to Professor
Aubrey Tealdi, of the Landscape
Design department.
"Certain phases of landscape de-
sign offer excellent nelds for the
I professional woman designer," said
Professor Tealdi. "Notably in the
field of domestic landscape design,
the development of home grounds
and country estates ith, their
endless opportunity for beauty and
convenience, women have a chance
to distinguish themselves. Both in
this country and in England some
women practitioners stand in the
front ranks of the profession.
"Several women graduates from
the Department of Landscape De-

States today with decided success.
Every one of them does credit to
the department and to the Uni-
versity. Their records prove that
there is a place for women in the
profession provided they are will-
ing to devote themselves whole-
heartedly to their work."
