Thanksgiving Tea Will be Held
This Week in League


Miss Loomis and Dr. Bell Will
Pour; Miss McCormick
Helps Committee.
Thanksgiving theme will be car-
ried out in the decorations and en-
tertainment of the League tea
which will be given Friday after-
noon from 4 to 6 o'clock in the ball-
room of the League building, under
the direction of the Felker, Ban-
nasch, Gorman, and McEachron
houses. This is the second of the
series of informal teas given every
other Friday for all League mem-
League parties this year are
handled under a new policy. The
social committee merely acts as an
advisory group and the parties are
given by organized houses or groups
of houses on the campus. Friday's
tea is the first under this plan, and
the success of the project will de-
pend on the interest shown by the
campus in the first few parties.
Eileen Lester, president of the
Felker house, is general chairman
of the tea. Her committee is com-
posed of the presidents of the other
three houses, Audrey -Callendar,
McEachron, Margaret Reed, Ban-
nasch, and Lynn Adams, Gorman.
Miss Ethel McCormick, of the phys-
ical education department, is fac-
ulty adviser to the League social
committee and is assisting the
above committee in making ar-
rangements for the tea.
The committee invites all faculty
women to Friday's party. There will
be dancing and tea as usual, and
in addition to this a Thanksgiving
entertainment is being planned.
Miss Amy Loomis, director of the
League theatre, and Dr, Margaret
Bell, of the physical education de-
partment, will pour.
Japanese Do Not Play
Enough, Says Student
"The Japanese women do not
make enough effort to play," re-
marked Mi'ss Kimiko Ashino, a
Barbour scholarship student from
Tokyo. She attended the Women's
Christian College there supported
by Canadians and Americans.
"We do not have parties and
dances in our schools and I am sure
that some of our students would
feel shocked if they could come over
and see how late you stay out at
night. We are not brought up in
such close contact with the men
and I approve of the boys and girls
going together more. It surprised
me, however," she said.
Miss Ashino taught English in the
college at Tokyo and is pursuing
several English literature courses
here now.

Appeal to Children Was Main
Ainx of League Organization
in Choosing Play.
"Make-Believe" by A. A. Milne
has been selected by the newly
formed Theatre group of the Wom-
en's Leaguehasgtheir initial pro-
duction. The group has received
permission from the Women's Lea-
gue for its first presentation at
10:00 o'clock this Saturday morn-
ing and will repeat the perform-
ance again at the sahe time on
Saturday morning, November 29.
The chief appeal of Milne's
"Make-Believe" will be to the child-
ren of Ann Arbor as the group is
endeavoring to take the place of
a Junior League, but adults ac-
companied by children will be ad-
mitted, which reverses the usual
order of things.
Members of the group which was
established early this fall will take
the leading parts assisted by repre-
sentatives from the Dramatic Coun-
cil of Tappin School, who will play
the prologue of "Make-Believe."
Among the women who have
leading roles are: Blossom Bacon,
'31, Eugenie Chapel, '32, Anne Dav-
enport, '31, Anne Robb, '31, Jane
Robinson, '31, Elva Pascoe, '32, and
Eleanor Walkinshaw, '32.
Rehearsals are being held in
preparation for the play, sets, pro-
perties, and costumes are being de-
signed and executed by members of
the group themselves and Miss Amy
Loomis is directing the play.

by Cornelia Skinner.
Martha Cook dormitory will pre-
sent Cornelia Otis Skinner in a
program of character sketches Fri-
day night attheLydia Mendelssohn
theatre. Residents of the dormitory
are making all arrangements for
her appearance and are entertain-
ing Miss Skinner at Martha Cook.
This is the second program given
in the theatre this year by campus
organizations. Under this arrange-
ment any house that wishes may
use the theatre for some such pre-
sentation, provided the receipts be
used for a benefit fund connected
with the University.

performance that she recently gave
at the Selwyn theatre in New York
and at the Harris in Chicago. She
left the legitimate stage two years
ago, and since then her work has
been in the line of an individuali
entertainer. Most of the character'
sketches she gives are original, as
she is interested in writing as well
as in acting.

Posters were placed yesterday in
Barbour gymnasium and the Wom-
en's Athletic building by the com-

cabin, and it is expected that the
group will return by 4 o'clock that
This will be the first large out-
door activity sponsored by W. A. A.
this year, and everyone who is in-
terested in joining the Athletic As-
sociation is invited to come. Audrey
Callander, '33 Ed., who is in charge

mile hiked.

Alpha Xi Delta and Zeta Tau
Alpha Postpone Scheduled
Game Until Wednesday.
Champion of Intramural Hockey
Will be Decided in
Friday's Game.
Kappa Kappa Gamma defeated
Alpha Phi in the only hockey game
which was played yesterday after-
noon. Alpha Xi Delta and Zeta Tau
Alpha were scheduled to play, also.
but the game was postponed until'
In the first few minutes of play
Kappa Kappa Gamma took the ball
into Alpha Phi's territorly, and
kept it there during the greater
part of the game. When Alpha Phi
did get the ball they took it down
the field with a great deal of spsed,
but they were only able to getI
through Kappa Kappa. Gamma's
defense once for a goal.
Although the game was not ex-
ceedingly fast, both teams fought
hard, and they were extremely en-
thusiastic. Alpha Phi excels in at-
tack, while Kappa Kappa Gamma
is best on defense. Kappa's goals
were due to the fact that its= back-
field took the ball from Alpha Phi's
forward line, and hit it up to its
own front line players. Alpha Phi
did the opposite; its forward line
was exceptionally fast, and took
the ball down the field by its own
ability to dribble.
Grace Mayer and Harriet Hunt
did the best playing for Kappa
Kappa Gamma. Ruth Walser and
Olive Dawes were the stars of the
Alpha Phi team.
Because of the postponement of
the Alpha Xi Delta--Zeta Tau
Alpha game the finals of the hockey
tournament will not be played on
Wednesday as was previously an-
nounced. The Alpha Xi Delta's will
meet the Zeta Tau Alpha's on Wed-
nesday at 4:45. The winner of this
game will play Kappa Kappa Gam-
ma on Friday for the champion-
ship of the intramural league.

Activity Points Will be Given
Sophomores for Work
During Cabaret.
"One of the most interesting and
entertaining jobs in the Sophomore
Cabaret is that of a waitress,"
stated Aileen Clark, chairman of
the waitress committee. "The work
is not at all hard, and the com-
pensation of being present during
the actual presentation of the
Cabaret offsets the amount of time
and energy that must be expended."
"We will need about 20 women,
and we plan to arrange it so that
they work in two hour shifts. The
Cabaret takes place the afternoon
and evening of December 4 and 5,
so that only two days of work will
be necessary," continued Miss Clark.
"The waitresses will appear in
attractive costumes and the work
itself will not be difficult. Women
who serve in this capacity will be
awarded one campus activity point,
according to the amount of time
spent," she concluded.
Women interested in serving as
waitresses should get in touch with
Aileen Clark at 23203 or Jane
Fecheimer at 22249 before Thurs-
day afternoon.
