el Delbridge and his orchestra,
o have just completed a season's
at the Blue Room of the Book
lillac hotel in Detroit, will play
the dance sponsored by the
gue from 4 to 6 o'clock this Sat-
ay afternoon in the main ball-
m of the building.
he dance is the first of the af-
loon parties, planned by the
gue this year, which will be

of affairs which have been ar-I
ged under the supervision of
ious campus houses, and the'
ceeds will go to the Undergrad-
o campaign fund.
Committees in Charge.
[embers of the new and old so-
committees of the League as
I as members of last year's Un-
graduate Campaign fund com-
tee will be in charge of arrange-
nts. Jeannie Roberts, '32, social
irman, is general chairman of

By A. T. '33.
As hotter weather approaches,
the thought of long, almost should-
er length gloves gives an almost
desperately hot feeling. So stylists,
always ready to comform first of
all to comfort, have decreed that
gloves for summer wear are to be
no longer than twelve button
length at the most, and most often
of all, they are to come nearer the
wrist.
Gloves should be crinkled at the
wrist, to make them come just the
right length up the arm.
A good idea and also an econo-
mically stylish one this spring, is
the shirtwaist fad. Crisp little
blouses of eyelet embroidery, linen,
and voile and quickly washable and
they will freshen any costume.
They can be worn under the new
suits, with their touches of dainty
frills and tailored plainness show-
ing, or they can be worn, on hot
days, simply with a skirt.
Following the blouse idea, many
two piece dresses, or three piece
being shown. Smart silk ensembles,
with contrasting jackets and light
organdy and voile blouses form a
variable costume that can be worn
with or without a jacket. The new
angora wool dresses which have
been very popular are also made
frequently with a tuck-in blouse.

Prof. Howard M. Jones to Give
Women Pointers on How
to Write Play.
Initial activities of the 1932 Jun-
ior Girls' Play will begin at a meet-j
ing to be held at two o'clock this af-
ternoon at the Women's League
Biulding. Every women in the
sophomore class who is at all in-
terested in working on the book for
next year's play is invited to attend
the meeting.
Prof. Howard Mumford Jones of
the English department will ad-
:dress the group present. He will
give some pointers on writing plays
of this type and will, tell of the re-
quirements of the play.
Miss Alice Lloyd, Dean of Women
will also speak at the meeting on
the type of play and the style and
plot that is expected.
Miss Amy Loomis. who has for
several years directed the annual
Junior play has requested that thel
manuscript be written by a single
author this year instead of by two
working in conjunction. The plan
of having two authors has worked
successfully in past years, but it is
more convenient if there is but
one," Miss Loomis stated.
All Sophomore women are invit-
ed to attend the meeting whether
they have seriously thought about
writing the play or not. This dis-
cussion will give a good idea of the
type of work, and will serve to out-
linxe the method of writing.
Any sophomore woman who can
not attend the meeting but is in-
tending to write a play should con-
sult with Jean Botsford, '33, for
further arrangements.
Sigma Alpha Iota Has
Annual Installation

"The first Freshman Girls' Glee
club was organized in 1918," stated
Mrs. Bernice Nichols Hall, secretary
in the department of hygiene and
health, and a member of that first
organization.
"Two other young women and
myself were interested in music,
and desired to get in the University
Girls' Glee club. However, we were
told that freshmen were ineligible.
We could see no reason why we
should not have a club of our own,"
continued Mrs. Hall.
"We consulted Miss Hunt, sponsor
of the major club. She said if *we
organized a culb, she would direct
it. We succeeded in assembling
twenty-six women. Our program
was much like that of the other
club except that we did not take,
any extensive trips. However, we
did sing carols at Christmas time.
The officers of that first club
were: Esther Hollands, '21, presi-
dent, Camilla Hayden, '21, secre-
tary-treasurer, Helen Butler, '21, li-
brarian.
"The picture of the first organ-
ization is now in one of the League
committee rooms," said Mrs. Hall,
in conclusion, "and if you want a
good laugh, look at it."
A few years later, the club started
the practice of selling candy at the
Junior Girls' Play, which it has
continued to do ever since. Each
class since 1918 has had a Fresh-
man Girls' Glee club. The present
one is under the direction of Miss
Helen Gould. The club sang at a
Play Production show, last Christ-
mas, the first time a Freshman
Girls' Glee club has ever made a
public appearance.
The University Girls' Glee club
is planning to entertain them at a
tea to be given May 17, at which
time the Freshman Girls' Glee club
will present a group of songs.

Character of Work Being Done
by Women Improves.
"In China 40 years ago women
were kept in the home and had not
entered into professional careers at
all," stated Dr. Zung Wei Koh,
graduate student, recently.
"But now, since Western civiliza-
tion has become so -strong there,
the life of the women has been
changed entirely. Higher schools
for women have been established
and even co-educational institu-
tions are popular. The women are
just as active in athletics as are
those of American universities,"
she continued.
Women Doctors Preferred.
"Women are becoming profession-
als in all sorts of work. However,
medicine leads. Women doctors in
China are preferred to men. In
fact most men like to go to the
women doctors," Dr. Koh said.
"And as for law, it is a much ad-
mired profession. One of the first
women lawyers was educated in
France. She has now become one
of the most powerful and influen-
tial women in China, and has es-J
tablished a law school for women
in Shanghai and in Peking," she
continued.
Banking is also a field of great
interest to women and Dr. Koh
told of a friend who is, at present,
the manager of a bank in China.
Marriage Is Barrier.
In fact, "women are getting into
the worthwhile positions w i t h
amazing rapidity. There are at
present five women who are hold-
ing some of the highest govern-
nental positions in China. This is
surely a great advance from 40
years ago," she declared.
"Marriage is a barrier to a pro-
fessional woman in China. A single
business woman is welcomed into
society but the married business

women are not so welcome. Ameri-
can customs are rather in opposi-
tion to this, I believe, for a certain
social status which one does not
otherwise have is given to the
married woman here," Dr. Koh
said.
"An interesting law has just been
passed in China which states that
when a woman marries a man, if
she goes to live at his home she
takes his name but, if he comes to
live at hers, he takes her name. Also
a woman can now be the head of
the house. That is, previously when
the father died a son became head
of the family and if there were no
sons the nearest male relative. In
this way the mother and daughters
were often placed in a precarious
position. But now, by this law, the
mother becomes the head of the
family and the property which is
inherited can be divided equally.
China is, indeed, becoming rapidly
w sternizedc," Dr. Koh concluded.
Music Sorority Gives
Formal Spring Dance
Members of Delta Omicron, na-
tional honorary music sorority, were

"Every so often we hear the
same old cry: the race of the grad-
uates of our colleges is dying out.
The graduates of the colleges mar-
ry late and sparingly. Women's col-
leges create a strange aversion to
matrimony. But I do not agree with
this," declared Miss Mary Lee, Rad-
cliff e graduate and author of "It's
a Great War," in an article on
"College Graduates and Civiliza-
tion" in the May issue of Harper's
magazine.
"In the first place, college women
marry as often as any other select-
ed group of women of the upper
classes and, like other women of
the upper classes, prefer to have
fewer and better children than did
their ancestors," she continue.
Statistics have proven that grad-
uates of Vassar, Smith, and Welles-
ley marry as often as those daugh-
ters who remain at home. In fact
",your daughter has a better chance
of finding a husband there than if
she stays at home," Miss Lee stated.
Men students of Birmingham
University claim that the presence
of women is desirable for they act
as a pleasantrelief from the mon-
otony of lectures and examinations.
