Athena, women s speech group,
has appointed the team which is to
represent them in the intramural
debate which is being held nextj
Tuesday night between Athena and1
Adelphi, men's speech society. The
woipen who will speak are: Gladys{
Baker, '33, Muriel Levy, '34, and
Goldie Lightfoot, '34.-
The subject on which these two
societies will argue is whether stu-
dents spend too much of their time
on social activities. Neither group
will use any of its varsity debaters.
A decision will be given by the au-
dience as the debate is an open

club parties the outdoor cooking
club will meet at 2 o'clock today
at the Palmer Field house. All wo-
men whether or not they are mem-
bers of the Women's Athletic As-
sociation are invited to attend.
To Use Tin Cans.
The feature of the party is that
tin cans will be used for the cook-
ing. According to Marjorie Els-
worth, '32, who is head of the club,
this is the best way of outdoor cook-
ing as it takes about a minute to
heat the food and' also it is con-
venient to carry and to prepare a
fire. Two women will share one
tin can and one will cook while the
other will feed the fire with small
Bacon and pancakes will be serv-
ed and all attending are asked to
bring fifteen cents to cover the ex-
penses. It is expected that the
groups will go out to the fireplace.
TWenty W. A. A. points will be
given to a woman who attends four
of these parties and on the receipt
of one dollar will become an active
member of the organization.
First of Group Parties.
This is the first of a group of in-
dividual club parties. The skating
club uader Martha Doehmer, '32,
will meet Jan. 16, and the Ramb-
ler's club under Elizabeth Shull, '34,
will meet Jan. 23. The three clubs
will combike Jan. 30 for the party
which will be typical of the month.
This schedule will be ' repeatedI
throughout the year. Glendora

petition form one of 30 units of wo-
men acting similarly in different

The petitions, in impressive bulk.
will be presented to the 1932 world

At the open meeting of the
League which was held yesterday
afteinoon in the Grand Rapids
room the principal motive was to
acquaint the board of directors andI
the board of representatives with
the activities each group and to
allow all members of the league an
opportunity to learn the business
of the organization.
Katherine Koch, '32, p esident of
the league presided and reports
were given by the chairmen com-
mittees including those of Ruth
Duhme, '34, financial chairman for
the Mardi Gras and Sophomore
Cabaret, Barbara Braun, '33, treas-
urer of the League, and Enid Bush,
'33, social chairman who tld of
the proposed functions for the
coming semester.
Miss Geraldine Grover, '32, chair-
man of board of representatives, in
giving her report especially urged
the upper classmen to enforce the
8 o'clock rule for freshmen.
A feature of the meeting was the
report by Helen DeWitt, '3, who
served as the League delegate to
the N. S. F. A. convention in Toledo
during the Christmas Holidays.
The N. S. F. A. was formed in 1924
at Princeton in order that college
students might be given an oppor-
tunity to express their views con-
cerning the question of the United
States joining the World Court. At
this time the delegates became in-
terested in having this chance to
discuss together problems of stu-
dents in the different colleges.
The meeting ended with a report
by Evelyn Neilson, '33, on the pro-
posed Dinner Dance. It was de-
cided that the dance should be giv-
en on the same plans of the Pan-
hellenic Ball and that it should be
entirely a women's proposition.

as the season progresses. The use
of beaded and rhinestone effects
has attained much popularity, and
has addeda note of elegance not
seen in the gowns of the last few
seasons. Although the gowns, Which

gue, many of the newer ones fairly
sweep the floor.
We saw a lovely one recently of
pale crepe. The neckline was en-
tirely even and straight, and was
quite low both in the front and
back. A detachable strip of amber

was very long, and very full.

Black transparent velvet still re-
tains its popularity. A most effec-

in the front, but was practically
without a back, with the exception
of two narrow bands of velvet
which crossed in the back. The on-
ly trimming was a rhinestone buc-
kle, and rhinestone earrings of a
startling length completed the ac-
cessories. -The accompanying wrap
was also of blacke velvet, and very
White still predominates, espe-
cially in satin, although recently
white velvet has assumed popular-
ity. We saw a lovely white satin
gown which had a very low cowl
neck in front and back, and had
a plain bodice and a full skirt. The
only trimming on the dress was a
twisted velvet belt of a dark shade
of wine.
The evening wrap which was to
complement the dress was of the
same shade of wine velvet found in
the belt. It -was very long, and the
sleeves were astonishingly full, and
were heavily shirred from the el-
bow to the cuff. The slippers worn
with this gown were wine colotd
sandals with fantastically high
heels. The only jewelry worn was
a pair of long, dangling wine Cry-
stal earrings.
Although the little bunny wrap
is still popular, and short wraps
of ermine are niuch worn, the new-
er trend is toward wraps which are
almost at long as the frock worn
beneath it. Shirring is much used
on the sleeves.. Velvet and fur may
be said to predominate in the ma-
terials used.

WASHINGTON, /J a n. 8.-(P)--
Two women, working swiftly, have
completed a portrait of President
Hoover and a bust of Mrs. Hoover
to be exhibited at the Chicago
World's fair in 1933.
Blond, energetic little Baroness
Violet Wenner did the portrait of
President Hoover in three sittings
of 35 minutes each. ,Dark-haired,
serene Helen Adele Miller, Chicago
sculptress, completed the bust } of
Mrs. Hoover after three 15-minute
Both were commissioned by the
Middle West Art association of
Chicago which seeks to collect some
20(i portraits of illustrious citizens
born in the middle west or who
have contributed to its building.
Both Baroness Wenner and Mrs..
Miller seized appointments with
President and Mrs. Hoover when-
ever it was convenient for them to.
be received at the White House.
Baroness Wenner stayed near her
telephone in the hotel and dashed
out, lugging the portrait, whenever
the summons came. She outlined
the picture with bold, swift strokes
in the brief time she had with- the
President and added finishing tou-
ches after each sitting. Her portrait
shows a wistfulness, almost a sad-
ness in the chief executive.
The Baroness has painted Charles
Stewart Mott, Otto Kahn, Harold
McCormick, former President Cool-
idge, the late Emperor Franz Josef
of Austria and many others. The
baroness, born in England, married
an Austrian baron.
Sitting on a high, clay-dusted
shelf in a drafty sculptor's shop
Mrs. Helen Adele Miller gave a few
finishing touches to the bust of
Mrs. Hoover.
