MARDI GRAS A SUCCESS
Evelyn Neilson to Be in Charge
of Proposed Spring Formal
Satisfaction with the work of the
Women's League this semester in
every respect was expressed yester-
day afternoon by Katherine Koch,
'32, president. New projects were
undertaken successfully, the finan-
cial condition was strengthened,
and the League aim of closer
friendship and cooperation among
the campus was accomplished.
The lack of success encountered
last year by the I annual League
bazaar wad counteracted favorably
by the initiation of the Mardi Gras
entertaiment, which was given in
conjunction with the Sophomore
Cabaret. The substitute was much
Cmore'successful financially and as
a means of entertainment.
Instead of the Mardi Gras next
year, however, a formal spring din-
ner dance will be given annually,
starting next spring. Evelyn Neil-
son, '33, has been named chairman.

sonetime in April;

it has been decided to hold them

able, according to Miss Koch, the

The board of representatives, of
which Geraldine Grover, '32, is the
chairnan, has worked in collabora-
tion with Miss Lloyd on the problem
of 8 o'clock week-nights for fresh-
men women,. and Miss Koch feels
that the ruling is better understood
and enforced as a result,.
The'judiciary council, under Sal-
lie Ensminger, '32, has striven to
achieve a more friendly and sym-
pathetic policy toward those who
violate League rules, and to make
these rules more familiar to all
"All in all," Miss Koch concluded,
"the semester has been one of pro-
gress, and we are looking forward
to continued success in the next."
Many States Well Represented
by Residents of Large
By Alice Boter, '33.
Almost every opportunity for cos-
mopolitan contacts is offered to
residents at the University of Mich-
igan Mosher-Jordan dormitories,
one of the largest dormitories for
women in the world. Registered at
the halls -are individuals from
twenty-eight different states in the
union Wilkershire and Windsor, On-
tario, Canada, and an .assistant di-
rector from France.
As is to be expected, the largest
percentage of the 440 residents are
roun cities in Michigan, with 264
representatives. Michigan students
are familiar with the stories of the
early French settlements here and
tell of the beautiful spots and rec-
reational advantages of their state.
Ohio has the second largest rep-
resentation, with thirty-one living
at the halls. They hail from the
corn belt where hog raising pre-
sents the chief form of livelihood.
Pennsylvania students with their
fund of knowledge about steel mills,
coal mining and historic tales of
Philadelphia and Quaker settle-
ments number thirty.
Twenty-three come from New
York state with the cultural ad-_
vantages of being near the great:
metropolis. From the steel mill re-
gions of Indiana have come twelve
Others have come from the corn
belt of Iowa, the blue grass regions
of Kentucky, the winter wheat
belts of Weft Virginia, Missouri,
Kansas and New Jersey; the grain
belt of Illinois; the industrial cen-
ters of Massachusetts; the dairy
lands of Wisconsin; the oil sections
of Texas; the cotton belt of Tenn-
essee and North Carolina; the can-
yon regions of Colorado; the -gov-
ernment centers of Maryland; the
resort meccas of Florida and Cal-,
ifornia; the blackstone valley of
Rhode Island, the semi-arid re-t
gions of Oklahoma and Nebraska;
the diversified farming country of
Connecticut; the mountainous re-
gion of New Hampshire; and the
revolutionary scenes of Delaware.

Down deep in every college girl's heart is a secret yearning
to dash out and just once have a wild orgy of' buying clothes-
about 49 dresses and 67 wraps and 1,000 stockings and-and
-for once to have enough to wear!
For college girls need lots of clothes-sprightly clothes, good
clothes, gently priced clothes! Three adjectives' that don't
often bear fruit in the same shop. That's why you so often
hear the gayly garbed girls about the campus say,
