Many Sororities Indulge
In Unique Settings For
Rushing Dinners
Now that sororities are in the
midst of rushing, decorative settings
are receiving greater attention. Among
the most unique settings were the
Alpha Xi Delta circus and the nau-
tical layout at Kappa Delta.
Alpha Delta Pi
Green and White formed the color
scheme for the rushing dinner held
last night by Alpha Delta Pi sorority.
Green bowls filled with white dahlias
formed centerpieces for the tables,
while green candles completed the
Alpha Omicron Pi
Alpha Omicron Pi announces the
initiation of Edith Forsythe, '36,
which took place at the district con-
vention held in Chicago this summer.
Delta Glass, '36, was in charge of
the decorations for the rushing dinner
held last night. The color scheme was
carried out in lavendar and ivory,
with ivory tapers and bowls of laven-
dar asters on the tables.
Alpha Xi Delta
A circus dinner with place cards
in the form of clowns, was given at
a rushing party by the Alpha Xi Delta
sorority recently. Pink lemonade and
ice cream cones were served to carry
out the circus effect.
Last evening the members of the
sorority planned a Chinese dinner for
their rushing guests. Decorations con-
sisted of chinese lanterns, black
candles and candlesticks. At a prev-
ious dinner, the pln was a Spanish
setting. Tables were covered with a'
red and white checked cloth, and
Spanish place cards used.
Collegiate Sorosis
An attractive setting for a rushing
dinner was the one chosen by Col-
legiate 'Sorosis Tuesday evening. The
dining room was softly lighted by
tall orange tapers at each table.
Matching the tapers were orange and
black dahlias which gracefully filled
an ivory bowl in the center of the
head table, and were reflected around
the table by a large mirror placed
beneath the flowers.
Kappa Delta
A unique rushing party was held at
the Kappa Delta sorority last eve-+
ning in honor of the yachting races.I
k,,natical'setting consisting of ban-
ners from the Detroit Yacht club, ship
models, and nautical decorations were
planned by Elizabeth Moor,36.
Eleanor Baker, '35, also planned a
clever rushing party--in the form of a
Dutch dinne. A Dutch village form-
ing the centerpiece of the table was
surrounded by Dutch houses, dolls,
and windmnills.
Kappa Kappa Gamma
Decorations for the rushing dinner
given at the Kappa Kappa Gamma
house Tuesday night consisted of
ivory tapers, purple and lavender as-1
ters and purple coxcombs.
Zeta Tau Alpha
The members of the Zeta Tauk
Alpha sorority wish to announce the
initiation of Janet Kappler, '36, of
Pentwater, Theresa Mackey, '37, of
South Lyons, and Evelyn Forshee, '36,
of Ann Arbor. The ceremony which
took place last Thursday was fol-
lowed by a formal banquet.

Although the official opening of the
swimming season is still in the future,
like all sports, a training period and
practice are necessary to stay in top
Miss Irene Field, faculty supervisor
and swimming coach, yesterday urged
that all the women interested in
swimming or in trying out for mem-
bership in the Swimming Club should
make use of the recreation hours for
women at the Union Pool. The sched-
ule for this year remains as it was
last - Tuesday and Thursday eve-
nings from 8:30 to 9:30, and Saturday
mornings from 8:30 to 10:30.
Mary Stirling, W.A.A. manager for
swimming, will be in charge of the
tryouts for membership, and any
information concerning the tests may
be obtained from her.
The swimming season is a little
broader in scope than those of other
sports, as a rule. Not only is there
an Intramural and Interclass and All-
Campus meet, but an Intercollegiate
telegraphic meet in which contestants
compete with swimmers from the
other Big Ten and middlewestern
Hockey will be one of the most dif-
ficult and skill-demanding sports on
the women's athletic schedule this
year. A season of four weeks for prac-
tice with two intensive drill periods a
week will get under way today, and
will be followed by four more weeks
of Interclass and tournament com-
petition, according to an announce-
ment from the Athletic Department
The climax of the season is the In-
terclass tourney, for which the hours
of practice are pointed. After three
days spent in organization and prac-
tice of the Interclass teams, a round
robin tournament will open on Oc-
tober 18.
The Ann Arbor Hockey Club will be
the first of the non-university compe-
tition in which the teams will par-
ticipate. They tangle with the local1
aggregation in about two weeks.
Coaching will be under the expert
direction of Miss Hilda Burr, whot
came from England three years ago
to coach hockey, and Miss Laurie
Campbell, director of athletics. Miss
Irene Field will assist them. Lavinia
Creighton, one of the stars of the
game through the years she has been
on the campus, is manager.
A heart and lung recheck is neces-
sary before any girl enters the sport,
if she has not already had a medical
examination this fall.
Autumn Mode Features
Quaint Picture Dresses
Among the new formal styles that
will be seen this fall are the picture
dresses. These dresses originated in
the picture dresses of the late nine-
teenth century, with the full skirt,
tight bodice, droop shoulder, of this
style. One gown of this type was of
black moire. The full skirt, shirred
on at the waist, gave the dress a'
sweeping line. The neckline of this
model was extremely wide and low
and thefleeves were puffed. The
whole effect was of turning back the
calendar a few decades.

LAWRENCE TIBBETT is a hero in many divisions of musical art
- concert, opera, radio, and the movies. Pronounced natural gifts
augmented by definite, serious and continued intelligent study
have combined to win for him distinction everywhere. His magnifi-
cent voice, finely schooled, gives him a tremendous advantage.
Behind this is supreme musicianship and culture, and back of it
all is the "way" he does things.
Possessor of a powerful personality and an equally forceful
imagination, Mr. Tibbett, with deep thought and insight into all
that he undertakes, is a creator of originals - not a. copyist or

His entire study, development, and fame are "American made,"
and he has thus been completely free from international influences
which might otherwise affect his ideals. Here Thursday, Nov. 1st.

' QUSSEVITZKY, in the season now beginning, enters upon his second decade in America
as tl conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
S1924, when this most vivid figure among European conductors took the direction of
this tfi ionally great orchestra, he has brought it to a new and surpassing fame. Through a
dci. Ie has developed the various sections into an assemblage of virtuosos and a perfection of
Sscarcely to be equaled anywhere in the worlT. The Jlperb, glowing tone which has come
