Mss McCormitk Begins Career
in 'A Little Red School House'

* Miss Ethel McCormick, social di-
rector of the League, has done a great
deal toward making the League the
center of women's activities.
Lace, Gay Colors
.On SombreFrocks
Show Spring Trend
With that certain something of
spring in the air frocks are beginning
to ,show the lighter trends of warm
weather in subtle colors and lingerie
Many pastel shades are being sold
at present to brighten sombre fur'
coats and the effects of dark acces-
sories. Yellow is considered "good," as
is a bright chartreuse. Dancing in a
campus restaurant Sunday night we
noticed a crepe frock of this latter
shade, the accessories and suede belt
being brown. The ascot tie and flare
at the hip-line were finished in fine
pleating, which promises to 'be one
of the favorite trims during the com-
ing months.
For wear in a drafty lecture audi-
torium, one notices the wide use of
gay twin sweaters. For instance, the
same sharp green was seen recently
with a bell hop's cap to match. A
grey skirt and squirrel coat retained
the sobering effect of the cold weeks
yet to come.
Mn case one prefers the darker navy
blue or black frock for street and
Suiday suppering, the lightening ac-
cents are lingerie touches of lace or
starched net.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third
in the series of articles on prominent
women in the University.
Teaching that began in "a little
red school house" was the profession
that led Miss Ethel McCormick, social
director of the League, to her present
Miss McCormick was born in West
Branch, a little town in the northern
part of Michigan. Since her parents
lived on a farm, the first six grades
of her education were secure'd in a
rural school, and the others, through
high school, in the village school in
West Branch.
From high school she went directly
to a teaching position in a typical
country school house. In this red
building, Miss McCormick says she
broke a precedent. All of the teachers
that had preceded her had been mar-
Her next step was to leave the
teaching position she had and attend
Ypsilanti State Normal College where;
in two years she received her teach-
er's certificate. "Reading, and 'riting
and 'rithmetic" were the subjects she
taught in the third grade of the pub-
lie schoolstof c.BattleCreek. Detroit,
was the next city that she was to,
go to. Here she taught in the primary
grades of the Markhausen and Esta-
brook Schools.5
Teaches Deaf Students'
Helping the deaf to learn to read;
lips, and retaindtheir voices was the
next task that)she had, in the De-
troit School for the Deaf. It was
while she was there that Miss Mc-
Cormick became interested in phys-
ical education. She was sent to Rus-
sell School on the east side of Detroit
by Miss Edith Perrin, head of the
city's physical education department.
Here she did everything with her
usual energy; she coached a track
team of boys so well that they won
the inter-school championship; she
handled approximately 300 boys a
day in classes and teams for baseball+
and soccer.
Leaving her position as supervisor
of physical education on the east,
side, which she had secured in recog-
nition of her work at Russell School,
she received her degree at the teach-

er's college in Columbia, having pre-
viously attended summer school in
both Columbia and Madison, Wis.
Only a month after her return
from Columbia, Dr. Bell, recently ap-
pointed head of the women's physical
education department, came to see if
Miss McCormick would be interested
in working with her at Michigan. She
was not long in securing the title of
Assistant Professor in Physical Edu-
cation. Her subjects included sports,
tap lessons, folk and natural dancing.

gayety of the Soph Prom Friday
night at the Union was reflected
Saturday in the many couples who
danced to the music of the Union
band and listened to the southern
voice of Mary Ann Mathewson sing-
ing the lyrics.
Petite Miss Mathewson, presiding
over the "mike," chose a stunning
green and red color combination for
her gown. The dress itself was of
bright green rough crepe, long and
skillfully cut; red flowers at the waist-
line and red satin slippers contrasted.
Among those co-eds seen on the
floor were Ruth Kurtz, who chose a
long blue gown cut on quaint lines,
and Helen Ilaxton, of Sophomore
Cabaret note, who wore deep purple
velvet. Vera Sebastian appeared in a
stunning black crepe with long puffed
sleeves, and Mary Jane Cummings
selected maroon velvet.
A great number of alumnae, and
out-of-town guests attended the

Sales of dresses that will be in

months are most unusual at the
first of the season, so we marvel
at the values that the Elizabeth
Dillon shop is offering. There are
two gay, yellow crepe formals
among the lot, one for a short
and one for a taller girl, with the
cleverest of flower trims. Also the
newest in J-Hop glory will be in
during the week, to the tune of
laces and prints, and new models
that will perfect the most roman-
tic evening of the year, and stamp
it in your memory.

Two short comedy skits, under the
direction of Lucille Wood, Grad., were
presented by members of Athena Lit-

dramatic organization for women, at
the final meeting of the semester

The first skit, a satire on the ques-

their meeting on Jan. 15, "Resolved,
That the Charm of Woman Varies
Inversely With Her Size," presented
caricatures of fat and thin women.
