urged all sophomores planning to at-

as possible in order to make this
truly their own class function.
The dance, which will be held Jan.
19 at the Union will last from 9 p. m.
until 2 a. m. and late permission until
2:30 a. m. has been granted women
attending it. The party will be for-

The Prom is following the new
trend toward very low prices for class
dances in its ticket price of 2 dollars.
'Wencel Neumann, chairman, declared
that the class was' fortunate in being
able to present Jimmy Garrigan's
band at this price. The band has been
very popular throughout the Middle

Defend Heroine Of
Lewis Carroll Book
Alice, of Wonderland, Lewis Car-
roll's fantastic heroine, was hotly de-
fended by Ispectors Burt R. Shurly,
Douglas Jamieson, and Frank A. Gor-
man of Detroit Tuesday. Mrs. Laura
F. Osborne, president of the School
Board, attacked the Alice sketches
for schoolroom walls on the ground
that the bizarre figures of Alice, the
Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Twee-
6iedee would have a bad effect on
young children. Her objections were
overruled, however, and the designs
'iere definitely approved by the
board, subject to the supervision of
George W. Styles, equipment engi-
Inspector Jamieson defended Alice
in Wonderland, saying that he saw
the moving picture by that name, and
that "the theatre was crowded with
children, who instead of being hor-
rified at the picture, seemed to enjoy
it very much."
He was seconded in his opinions
by Inspector Gorman. "My seven year
old daughter saw the movie," he said,
"and it seems to have impressed her
imagination. It's the first movie she

ever saw, the details of which she
could remember afterwards."
Mrs. Osborn claimed, however, that
the sketches used were out-dated and
not particularly interesting, suggest-
ing that something else be included
in their place,
"There are many other subjects
which would be more suitable," she
stated. "For instance, I would suggest
a picture of children at play. That
would be light and graceful. Or what
would be more appropriate in Mich-
igan than a cherry tree in full blos-
In answer to the question of Dr.
Shurly as to whether she would sug-
gest the cherry tree that Washington
cut down, she replied that she meant
an upright tree. Adding, "besides, it
has never been definitely proved that
Washington cut down a cherry tree.
"Children are compelled to look at
the pictures on a schoolroom wall.
Think how terrible it would be for
kindergarten children to have to look
for a year at a picture of a gro-
tesque fat man balancing a snake on
his nose."
Dr . Shurly effectively answered
this argument with "Humph! As az
disciple of Aesculapius I've looked a
his symbol, which is a snake, for 38
years and it hasn't hurt me any."
All of those present refrained from
telling Mrs. Osborne that the snake
that she referred to was not a snake
but an eel, which Lewis Carroll refers
to as Father William.

In November of 1932, the Daily
carried a feature announcing the
awakening of the women to the fact
that there was place for many of
them in the League. Now it is well-
known that the women no longer de-
pend on the men to run their build-
ing. Twenty women live in the
League and are employed there. As
yet there seems no way to get around
the fact that the 16 men employed
cannot be replaced by women.
Figures for the patronization of the
cafeteria have considerably increased
in 1933 over those of 1932. Approxi-
mately 62,928 were served in the grill
room in 1933, and only 35,301 in
1932. Figures for the four months of
this last term show that there was
a gain of 8,250 patrons for Septem-
ber, 1933 over September of 1932; 7,-
668 gain for October, 1933, over the
Name month in 1932; 7,372 gain in
Novmber, and 4,337 in December.
Students who are working their
way through college were helped to
the sum of $12,000 paid them for
work in the League during the year.

Mortarboard Will

As there is no scholarship recog-

Marian Giddings, '34, president of
Mortarboard, announced yesterday
that thesenior honorary society will
publish the names of those women
who have maintained an average of
half A and half B during the first
semester. They will entertain for
them early in the spring.
Miss Giddings expressed the wish
that next year's Mortarboard will
carry out the same idea in the hope
that the announcement will become

for work on special dinner parties
where the trays are too heavy for
the women to carry. Although the
dining room in the League has been
closed this year, special parties are
still taken care of in the private din-

to a report by Miss Alta B. Atkinson,
business manager of the League.
Clubs meet often at the League; as

as the two Inter-fraternity Balls, the

Ethel McCormick, social director of

the bridge classes in which 35 are en-
rolled, and the duplicate bridge tour-
naments, at which eight or ten tables
are set up every Tuesday night.
Profits from these and other activi-
ties go to the fund. Authorities ex-
pect that the debt will be completely
paid in another year.

Erroneous rumors have been heard
in Ann Arbor concerning the Detroit
Civic Theatre, which was reported
closed. This is not true, for it is still
functioning though not in the house,
formerly the Bonstelle Playhouse,
where it originated.
It is now situated in the Art Insti-
tute Theatre and is under the direc-
tion of Thomas Wood Stevens. All
this week it is presenting "Ch'is-

matinee and Sunday night the pro-
duction will be "Pigeons."

Several sororities have been enter-

ners, which, because of the proximity
of exams, are almost the only form
of social activity on campus.

for ten guests last night. Decorations
used were sweet peas, daffodils, yel-
