This Afternoon
All junior women expecting to take
part in the Junior Girls Play are to
attend the weekly practices, the first
of which will be held at 5 p. m. today
in Sarah Caswell Angell Hall.
Informal tap dancing classes will
be given each week, so that the fun-
damental steps and movements may
be learned. Through these classes the
dance committee, assisted by Mr.
Russell McCracken, will make selec-
tions for the choruses and leads.
The traditional fee of $1 will be
collected from each woman, eligible
or ineligible, and anyone who plans
to participate in junior activities.

stated that women lve been ap-

junior women.
New Football Coat
Is Ideal Garment
For Stadium Wear
Are you looking for something
warm to wear to the game which
will at the same time be dashing,
enough to do away with that bundled
look which is more fatal to charm
than any number of red noses?
If so, we have found the answer
to numerous prayers in the football
coat which is just what the name
implies, the ideal garment for sta-
dium wear.
It is a sport coat which will take
the place of your rather bedraggled
polo coat and yet differs from the
swagger style which has seemed for
a long time to be the only alterna-
tive to the ever-popular polo. In other
words, it is really new and different
and yet is practical. The style is
simple, unusual sleeve treatment be-
ing the only decorative note. How-
ever, the untrimmed collar is pro-
longed to form the trimmest little
scarf which performs its appointed
task of keeping the vocal chords
warm and at the same time waves its

ends in the breeze in an exceedingly
dashing manner. In addition to all
this, it comes in the gayest of colors,
which will liven up the drabbest of
days and raise the spirits of the most
despondent rooters.

and Evelyn Bluestein, '37, of Brook-
line, Mass.

garet Mustard, '36, of Battle Creek;
and Martha Steen, '36, of Belle Ver-

Sigma Kappa
Lucille E. Jetter, '34, is in charge
of a rushing dinner and bridge at
Sigma Kappa today. Yellow winter
chrysanthemums and pale green tap-
ers will decorate the table.
Zeta Tau Alpha
Zeta Tau Alpha entertained the
pledges of other sororities at a tea
Wednesday. Ellen Chapman, '37, was

Rust-colored flowers and shell-pink

It is a somewhat popular belief
that in order to portray a character
successfully on the stage, the actor
must to a certain extent resemble
that character in real life.
In "Dinner at Eight," the Broad-
way success which Robert Henderson
is bringing to the Majestic theatre
for a week's engagement, beginning
next Sunday night, Helen Hughes,
who appears as the cheap slattern
wife, Kitty Packard, wife of "big bus-
iness man," Dan Packard, is a direct
contradiction to this argument.
In all probability Kitty Packard
had a difficult time getting through
the grades, has never come into closer,
contact with polite society than from
the receiving - side of a hat-check
counter, and possesses a vocabulary
limited at best to two hundred words,
including profanity.
Helen Hughes was graduated from
the University of Wisconsin with
highest honors. A Phi Beta Kappa,
she was one of the most popular girls
on the Wisconsin campus, being cho-
sen Prom Queen in 1928. She is a
member of Delta Gamma sorority
and was active in campus dramatics,
being a member of the Wisconsin
Players with whom she appeared as
leading lady.
Her professional stage experience
has included such important engage-
ments as understudy to Pauline Lord
Alpha Delta Sigma
Reorganizes Here
Plans for reorganization of the,
Michigan chapter of Alpha Delta
Sigma, national advertising frater-r
nity, were discussed at a dinner held
in the Founder's Room of the Union
Wednesday night. Robert Ward, '35,
was chosen to call together 15 stu-
dents interested in advertising.
The movement for reorganization
was begun by Arthur Hallam, grad-
uate secretary of the fraternity. In
addition to students in the schools
of journalism ;and commerce, the,
group will include members in the
professional world, such as Henry T.
Ewald, who is now a member of
Campbell and Ewald Co. in Detroit.
Only students interested in advertis-
ing may belong, Ward said.
Hopwood Prize Winner
Critically 1.1 In Montana

and member of the New York Thea-
tre Guild's road production of
"Strange Interlude." On Broadway
she appeared in the Theatre Guild's
production of "Faust" with Dudley
Digges and George Gaul. She also
played an important role in William
Brady's much discussed play, "Simon
Called Peter."
Miss Hughes has attracted much
favorable comment in "Dinner at
Eight" from the critics in Detroit
where the play is now being per-
formed at the Cass theatre to ca-
pacity audiences.
Explanation Of
Women's Point
System Is Given
A clarification of the puzzling point
system for women was issued by Miss
Jeannette Perry, assistant dean of
women, yesterday. The system is de-
signed to distribute honors and du-
ties among a greater number of wom-
en, and to encourage more women
to participate in extra-curricular ac-
Each recognized activity, such as
the League, W.A.A., publications,
honor societies, language clubs, Pan-
hellenic, literary, music, and other
clubs, is given a certain value in
points,'and no student will be allowed
to assume more than 14 points at
any one time.
Activity positions are divided into
three groups, according to the re-
sponsibility and importance of the
position held. Group C includes mem-
bership in any such activities which
counts one or two points, and offices
of the minor clubs, for which each
woman earns two points. Group B
includes more important positions,
with a rating of from three to five
Group A includes the presidency of
the League, of W.A.A. and a few
other offices, each carrying from six
to 10 points.
