dollar fee to only the following: Su-
zanne Mahler, Helen MacDonald,1

cards before paying your fee.

tertainment committee, with her
committee, have planned the follow-
ing dances for entertainment during

Society Leaders Model At Benefit

Staid Collegians1
Dancing At Un
College students are conventional!
That was the most highly evident
fact at the Union's Open House last
night. The premise is based by the
fact that the billiard room-a novelty
counted upon to bring co-eds by the
dozens-was comparatively deserted,
while the dance-floor, the students'
old stand-by, was so crowded as to
make dancing definitely impractical.
It should be understood that "com-
paratively deserted" is purely a rela-
tive term as applied to the billiard
room last night. All but a few of the
tables were in use, but women stu-
dents therein were remarkably scarce.
And as far as the co-eds were con-
cerned, ping-pong was a total flop.
, The Open House is an annual af-
fair, and is the one occasion during
the year when women students are:
allowed almost unlimited privileges
in the sanctum sanctorum of Mich-
igan men. The idea this year took
definite hold; it is estimated that a
Chbest Instructor Chosen
For Wyvern Luncheon
Louis Chapard of the French de-
partment of the University will be
guest instructor at the weekly lunch-
eon club meeting sponsored by Wy-,
vein, which is to be held Thursday
at 12:15 in the League cafeteria.
This plan of having students and
faculty meet once a week at luncheon
has been inaugurated by Wyvern to
help students get better acquainted
with each other and members of the
teaching staff. A regular table is re-
served for those attending and the
meetings are open to all persons con-
nected with the University.
Wyvern will hold its annual initia-
tion ceremonies Sunaay afternoon in
the League chapel.
Kappa Delta Entertained
At Delta Sigma Phi House
At the Delta Sigma Phi chapter
house Saturday afternoon the mem-
bers of the fraternity and their guests
from the Kappa Delta sorority listen-
ed to the reports of the Indiana
game. After the game there was tea
dancing to celebrate the outcome.
The char'erones were Mr. and Mrs.
Albert J. Parker and Mr. and Mrs.
David Cling-Smith of Ann Arbor.
Mrs. Parker poured.
The house was decorated in maize
and blue in keeping with the spirit of
the afternoon.

Spend Time
ion Open House
thousand couples were present, and
most of them spent a good deal of
their time dancing to the music of
Don Loomis and his orchestra.
The swimming exhibitions proved
popular. A special surprise treat Was
sprung on the visitors, who were able
to see the Varsity medley relay swim-
ming squad try for a new national
collegiate record in the 300-yard
medley relay, and succeed in lowering
the Western Conference mark by 3-
10 of a second. The new mark is
unofficial.
Other attractions during the eve-
ning, from 7 to 10:30 p. in., included
election returns, announced on the
dance floor and posted on a bulletin
board in the main lobby, swimming
for women only, bowling, billiards,
and the ill-starred ping-pong.
Brid c Lecture Tonight
Will Be Third Of Series
"Opening Bids of One and Re-
sponses" will be the subject of the
lecture to be given by John Mathis
at 7:30 tonight at the League as the
third in a series of bridge lessons
conducted every Wednesday evening.
Those taking the course play sev-
eral hands of bridge under the direc-
tion of Mr. Mathis and his assistants
following the lecture which last about
20 minutes. Between 65 and 70 peo-
ple have been attending the lessons.
It is still possible to attend the re-
maining lectures of the course ac-
cording to Faith Ralph, '34, chairman
of the project. Miss Ralph also an-
nounced that another series of les-
sons would follow the completion of
the present series.

Among prominent society leaders appearing at New York's benefit
fashion show were Mrs. George U. Harris, (left), who wore a black
evening gown set off with white feathers at the neck and shoulders.
Mrs. John H. G. Pell, (right), chose a peach evening gown with mink
trimmings.
