Announces Plans



Simplicity Of Design, Color Are
Featured In Afternoon Wools

For T ea Dances

,.,.. .,


A quorum was assembled, and at 4:15 Wednesday the meeting was called
to order. ... Are you wondering what it's all about . .. It was the first
W.A.A. board meeting of this year . .. Prexy Parkinson in a grey wool with
white trim presided calmly at the head of the long table in the trophy
room . . . Roll was taken and the minutes of the last meeting were
dispensed with ... Just as everyone was beginning to concentrate on plans
for the year, in bounced Louise Lockman and Kate Landrum .... Of course,
you know that Louise is hockey manager this year and is busy now with
practices at 4:15 every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons . . . She is
also arranging games with such organizations as the Woman's Club and
Lawyer's Club . . . . You simply must see those ...
*., * *
Lawyers Challenge
The lawyers, you know, challenged the women's Varsity last spring
... and just because they know their Gladstone doesn't mean that they're
unskilled at sports . . . they made their way down the field with amazing
rapidity .. . but the women swing a wicked stick, too. So wicked, in fact,
that the score was ended in a tie . . . one all. Crowds came out for the
game... more than attended any other contest all year.
The women returned the challenge this fall . . but the lawyers, busy
with briefs and rushing, haven't accepted or refused . . . .e have heard
from a very authoritative source, however, that they intend to play . .
probably in a couple of weeks when they aren't quite as hectic .
And have you heard about the zone-sorority hockey competition? Each
of the seven zones, which have on an average 48 women in each, will or-
ganize a team. These teams will play one another and the championship
team will be matched against the winning sorority . . . a tall silver cup is
the trophy.
The zones, we are told, were organized by Pete Hartwig .. . Miss Ethel
McCormick ... who is great on organizing things .... Brenda Parkinson
.... and Maureen Kavanaugh. . . president of the Assembly. The League
house presidents cooperated; too .. .
* * *
More 4-pples
Sports bulletins to be posted in the houses will be sent out immediately
. ... Watch for them .. . "An apple a day" is still considered as a necessity
... They may be purchased at the Information Desk in the building. . . So
along with other first considerations, don't forget to bring the pennies
so you can have an apple . . . And 'Pete' Hartwig, then and there, in the
midst of the meeting invited us all out for a social meeting to be held in
the near future at her house ....
8happy - or do you know her as Dorothy Shappell - as treasurer
asced for an estimation of the year's budget from each sport's manager ...
What mercenary creatures we all are . . . Guess it not only takes money
to make the world go around, but also a bit of it to finance women's ath-
letics . . . Edith Frederick, that energetic Kappa, is poster chairman .-
* * *
All In Favor
Newly-elected members of the board are Hope Hartwig and Dorothy
Briscoe . . . Hope was wearing a tile-colored boucle outfit and not Robin
Hood's favorite green, but she was chosen to lead his favorite sport . .
And that, my friends, makes her the new archery manager .. . Dotty will
manage the publicity . . . . Just another gag, dontcha know . . . Good
luck to them .... If we can find some four leaf clovers, they shall be con-
tributed to the cause ....
There's much talking about combining ping pong and baseball under
one manager . .. Adele Gardner, Jean Gourlay, and Julia Wilson are out
to interview all prospective candidates .. . It was suggested -that a certain
blond junior, whose name appeared in this column last week, be elected
'cause "She gets things done' . . . This opinion was voiced by the husky-
voiced Julia.
* * *
Check And Recheck
Dr. Bell, particularly attractive in a navy blue street dress and match-
ing hat, facetiously suggested that government funds be allotted to pay these
gals while they are busy interviewing, just to recompense them for time
lost . . . . My, my, what is this world coming to . .. Speaking of Dr. Bell
makes us think of the rechecks of heart and lungs which is being done
.W. W. A. A. helps plan these . .. That's because the organization is inter-
ested not only in a lively sport's program but also in an adequate health
program . . . Call the Health Service . . . Make the apointment for your
recheck for sometime between 2 and 5 p.m. Tuesday ....
All of a sudden, a huge map for A.A. was produced . . . Thought maybe
we were going to get a needed discussion of how to find one's way around
this city's intricate pathway of streets ... But no, the Zones of League Houses
were neatly checked and laid out . . . This is just to eliminate difficulties
Last year, there was not such a definite layout of Zones and the
gals played for the Zone team that was doing the best. . . . More fun ....
And more games won . . . This year each team will have an equal chance
in competition ...
Champions In The Making
Kate Landrum, intramural manager, was made chairman of a com-
mittee ... Under consideration of her group will be the subject of a plaque
for the W.A.A. Building . . . Shall it contain a list of current champions or
shall it consist of an accumulated record .. . That is the question .
One particularly enthusiastic member wanted the record 'cause she believed
that much satisfaction could be obtained from coming back 50 years hence
and finding her name among the champions of the 'good old days, way back
when' ... .

Now It's Tennis
The first round of the tennis tournament must be played by Oct. 141
.... That comes on Monday.. . . So those who have signed up to participate
in the Women's Tennis Tournament, please remember . . . . Jane Quirk,t
tennis manager, has posted the list in the W.A.A. building ....
* * *
Tournaments are in the wind now, so to speak ... Mrs. Stuart Hanley
tells about the golf tournament which is open to all women students ....1
The first scores must be in by Monday, Oct. 21 . . . Playing passes will be
given to those having the eight lowest scores . ... There should be some real1
golf played before the competitors are eliminated to that number . . . 'causet
such shots as Margot Goodrich and Dorothy Shappell are going to par-t
ti6ipate . ... And listen to this ... That Betsyite, Louise Nack, manager of^
golf, is also going to try her luck. ... And you know, she's awfully good ....
Others entered thus far are Marjorie Late, Bettie Bea Randall, Dora Ann
Day, Frances Sutherland, and Marge Greenhouse ....
I've saved the best for the last . . . There's a big rumor of an outing
toj. e held some Saturday in the country . . . This is for W.A.A. members
.... Aren't you all quite excited about that ... Call Mabel Allison at Jordan
some time soon and find out more about it... .

This week's prize goes to Louise Paine, a W.A.A. member, who arrived
at-the meeting just as everyone was going home for dinner ....

Small Hats, Tailore Silks3
Are Shown For Dances{
After Game
After the Indiana game, where?
If it's tea dancing, here's a little
hint on how to make the best possible
entrance. In the bustle and confu-
sion you may find yourself whisked
away to the strains of the latest
dance rhythm before you even have
a chance to indulge in any feminine
primping or changes of costume.
Dressy Wcnlens
So, a word to the wise! Prepare to
meet this situation by donning one of
tihe sheer woolen spectator-spofts
dresses before the game. A partic-
ularly suitable one, which has been
seen hereabouts, is fashioned of black
wool crepe,street length, smartly
simple. It is fastened at the neck
by a double row of bright steel but-
tons. With it is worn a hip-length
jacket, fitted at the waist, and ac-
cented by blue fox lapels. This cos-
tume suggests the dress suit, any
version of which is decidedly correct
and becoming for afternoon wear.
By way of forecast, we have an
idea that it will appear quite gen-
erally, in a variety of warm fall colors
and styles. Persian lamb, sable, and
leopard vie with each other for pop-
ularity. Then, too, there are going to
be lots and lots of simple frocks,
fashioned of either wool or crepe.
Afternoon Frocks
Of course, if you are one of the
fortunate ones, who have time to
dress for the "second act," there are
11- - -l

numerous opportunities awaiting you
to express your individuality and ac-
cent your charms by donning silks
and satins, shirred or tailored, and
even a jewelled clip or buckle; if you
wish to create a more romantic at-
With the dressier type of gown you
may choose one of the new exotic
hats. Here's another hint. For danc-
ing, mnake it a small one. Little off-
the-face models andnsubtly-veiled
turbans, mindful of Oriental poten-
tates, are quite the most desirable.
As for shoes, with the large variety
of street models, in suedes and
smooth leathers, pumps and ties, to
choose from, need we say more?

Brenda Parkinson, '36, president
of the Women's Athletic Associa-
tion, announced the plans for the

ing of the fall season.
Adelphi House
Plans Smoker
For Tryouts
Speech Society Is One Of
Oldest Men's Groups On
Adelphi House of Representatives
will hold its first smoker of the year
for prospective members at 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday night in its room on the
fourth, floor of Angell Hall. The pro-
gram is to consist of an open dis-
cussion. All men students are cor-
dially invited to attend, according to
Victor H. Weipert, '37, speaker.
Adelphi schedules debates with all
of the other speech societies on the
campus throughout the course of the
school year. Last year there were
two outstanding debates. The first
with Alpha Nu, was based on the
proposition, Resolved: That Huey P.
Long should be elected President of
the United States.
The other, with Sigma Rho Tau,
engineer speech society, on the sub-
ject, Resolved: That the Literary
School is suffering from coeducation.
The latter was an open air debate
held on the historic stump on the
south-east side of campus.
Officers of Adelphi'for the present
semester have been announced. They
include: Weipert, speaker; Harry
Shniderman, '38, clerk; Israel Finkle-
stein, '37, treasurer; and Eugene
Gressman, '38, sergeant-at-arms.
Adelphi is one of the oldest or-
ganizations in the University of Mich-
igan being founded in 1842 and has
counted many prominent alumni as
members. The main object of Adel-
phi is the promotion and development
of proficiency in public speaking ac-
cording to Weipert. Throughout the
year members take partin discussion
of important questions and also in de-
bates. A number of debates with oth-
er campus speech societies are also
scheduled this year. These may be
based on either serious or humorous
This society is one of the few extra-
curricular activities open to first se-
mester freshmen. Michigan men
wishing to tryout may do so by giv-
ing a three minutemspeech on any
subject. The time of tryouts will be
announced soon.
