Of Qestions Regarding
Student's Study Habits
Developing a habit of reacting ac-
tively to the material presented in
lecture and in class, and of seeing the
relationship of concepts is one of the
primary leatures of good study habits,
Prof. Howard McClusky of the educa-
tion deparfment said yesterday in the
second lecture of the Orientation
series, for freshmen women "Habits
Essential to Good Scholarship."
In answering the question, "What
evidence is there that efforts to im-
prove study habits will improve
scholarship?" Professor McClusky
said that statistics show that every
person can do better than he normally
does, and that most students utilize
only 70 per cent of their abilities.
The second question which was
asked was "What practical device can
a student use in budgeting his time?"
Professor McClusky suggested that
each student take inventory after
every few days of the way he has dis-
tributed his time in order to discover
whether or not he has spent too much
time on outside interests and whether
or not he has been allotting too much
time to his easiest study.
His reply to the third question "How
may a student improve his reading
ability?" was "Keep a chart of your
reading speed on some easy reading
material, forcing yourself to speed up
your reading and avoid a laborious,
analytical method of reading. In
preparing a reading assignment, it is
best to skim over the material rapid-
ly first, and then read it slowly to
fix the contents in mind."
To the last question "What would
you regard as the two or three most
important points in improving study
Habits?" Professor McClusky says he
believes self-activity, the active re-
ception of ideas, and the use of a
personal notebook for recording the
student's own ideas were the most im-
portant elements in good study hab-

Conference f Michigan Deans
To iscuss Student Problems
Saturday, deans from 18 Michigan
colleges will meet for a conference in
the League, and exchange ideas on
student government and organization.
Some years ago Michigan State in-
vited the deans and student advisers
to such a conference, and the project
was repeated in 1932 by Ypsilanti
State Normal. This time delegates
from junior colleges will be included
in the invitation also, since it is felt
that their interests and problems are
nearly identical with the larger

Curtis To Conduct
Clinic On Study
Prof. Fraicis D. Curtis, of the Edu-
cation department, will conduct a
"How to Study" clinic at 7:30 tonight
in the League. The novel project will
carry out the scheme of yesterday's
Orientation lecture, "Habits Essential
to Good Scholarship."
Under the direct supervision of Dr.
Curtis, students will receive actual
practice in note-taking, will learn how
to acquire effective silent reading
habits, and receive other helpful sug-
gestions. Any student wishing to join
the group is asked to leave her name
with Miss Ethel McCormick in the
League by 5 p.m. today.
sories to a smart fall outfit.
For campus sport wear, many styles
and materials remain stable, but there
are several new novelty bags. One
that is very appropriate at this season
is called the "football bag." It is
oval-shaped, fastens at the top with
a zipper, and is decorated with leath-
er cross-strings on both front and
The "knit-your-own" fad has be-
come so popular that it has even car-
ried to purse styles. One very smart
style is of a rough leather. It fastens
with four leather loops through which
a knitting needle is nonchalantly but
Tweeds Are Durable
The tweedy materials, because of
their durability, are excellent for
campus. They are practical because
of their large size and numerous com-
partments. A clever addition to a
green suit is a leaf-green pouch bag
made of the new chenille that looks
like terry cloth.
For afternoon wear, sharkskin, pin-
seal, suede, crepe and velvet combina-
tions and antelope are very good. One
smart style comes in brown. It is a
six-inch square, with an'telope in the
front and a fine leather in the back.

top and two neat gold initials on the
Sketch Camp Work
Exhibited As First
The first special exhibit of the sea-
son, arranged by the Students' Art
Exchange in the League, opened Sun-
day with a display of work done by
contributors during the summer
Scenes of old-world quaintness and
beauty are the woodcuts which Mason
Whitney, '34, designed during his stay
at the Summer Sketch Camp, near
Harbor Springs, Mich. Of particular
charm is his study of an old spired
church in the neighborhood.
Also included in the Sketch Camp
work on display are several water-
celors by Earl Pellerin, '27, Allan
Loeffler, '33, and Helen Maynard, '35.
Another scene in northern Michigan
is , the interesting water color by
Jonathan Taylor, '29A.
Campus scenes rendered with great
artistry are the water colors and pen-
and-ink sketches done by Gerhardt
Bauer, '35, which include the en-
trance to Haven Hall, the Law Club,
and the Clements Library. Banquier
Aubrey, '30, has submitted a number'
of etchings, and Mr. Taylor has placed1
on display his original designs for
In the field of practical arts, a wide
variety of work may be seen. The jew-
elry exhibit from the Cranbrook
Crafts Shop, includes silver pendants,
rings, bracelets, all hand-wrought,
and a silver pin worked in enamel
cloisonne. Several pieces in hammered
brass and copper, hand-woven scarves,
and a case of Indian handicraft, por-
cupine quill boxes and birchbark, are
also included in the exhibit, which
was arranged and planned by Mr.

Evening Bags Are Extreme
Evening bags are being worn in two
extremes - either very elaborate or
very plain. If your formal has a
sequin trim, the sequin bags of gold
and silver will be appropriate. Lame
and metal cloth are also smart this'
season, especially with the formal
tunic blouses of these materials.
One novelty evening bag comes in
moire. It is fitted with compact,
lipstick, perfume container, comb,
mirror, and change-purse, and sur-
prisingly, for the amount it carries,
is small enough to easily fit into your
escort's pocket. Another style comes
in black satin. It is made in the
shape of a wide tailored bow with a
wide strip down the center that poses
as a tie. It closes with a small mar-

Dr. Curtis mapped out his plans
for conducting the freshman study
group at 8 p.m. tonight in the League.
He will suggest four or five simple
techniques for taking down lecture
notes. This meeting is designed to help
freshmen women who are having dif-
ficulty in adjusting themselves to col-
Hilda Kirby, '34, before introducing
Dr. McClusky, emphasized the im-
portance of freshmen women finding
out about their studies now as five
week's grades will be out in another
three weeks. Mr. McClusky's lecture
was intended to help the students
check-up on themselves as well as in-
terest them in the new study group.
