Emerson Gil's Band Will Play For

Annual Panhellenic Ball Nov. 29


cJ{erry-Go- 0Rund
Want to buy a duck? . . . You should have been at the Union Friday
night. They have been full of little surprises there recently . . . but the only
trouble is. . . you never know when they are going to pull one of them until
you get there. And the climax came Friday when they started to raffle
off chickens . . . ducks. . . and what not. . . and they were all really and
truly alive too.
It was all very novel and among those who seemed to be enjoying it
all were. . . Avis Day and Jack Warner . . . Avis was in black . . . and they
were sitting at a long table with a group of Chi Psis. Jean Nelson and
John Freeze were watching the raffling with great interest. We saw
Eleanor Gessner dancing with Dick Spickney . . . and also on the dance
floor we saw Florence Schenck and Joe Sahlmark.
As we were making our way to our table at the League Friday night
we pa'ssed Elizabeth Nicol with Bob Cook . . . and Betty Van Winkle with
Cary Baldwin sitting together at a lone table. Elizabeth was wearing a
long blue velvet. Cary . . . who was on campus last year . . . was back in
town for the week-end. At another table nearby Norma Pioch . . . who
had on a brown velvet jacket over a brown crepe skirt . . . was sitting talking
to Bob Cooper.
Singing With The Ba nd ...
Shirl Crosman was singing with the band Friday night . . . it seems
quite a bit of campus talent is finding its way into the various orchestras
about Ann Arbor these days. Shirl chose a black dress with white collars
and cuffs for the evening. Also in black and white was Jean Bertram .. .
who was sitting at a table for two in one of the far corners with Bill Don-
ovan. Barbara Spencer's black dress was trimmed with bright red flowers
at the neck.
Charlotte Whitman . . . of J.G.P. fame year before last . . . was there,
Chucky . . . as we believe she likes to be called . . was in a black dress
trimmed with a gold belt . . . she was with Bob Benton. Also there were
Louise Sprague in bright red . . . with Russ Coward. . . and Eleanor Smith
... who was wearing a long wine velvet. Julie Kane came in rather late
. . . she was in wine red crepe.
The little bits of mirrored red light were beautifully reflected in the
sequins that trimmed Betty Cooper's green crepe dress . . . Betty was there
with Don Stewart. Marjorie Kress and Jack Wilson were dancing together
. . . Marjorie's brown crepe dress was smartly but simply cut. A very
sophisticated emerald green crepe drawn up in gathering at one side of the
neck with a large gold clip and more shirring gathering up the skirt at the
left was worn by Dorothy Shutt. . . who was with Rush Bowman.
At The Jordan Dance ...
Hattibell Grow and Ben Starr.. . track man . . . with Margaret Dodds
and Stewart Forbes wandered out into the radio room to discuss an ap-
parently weighty subject. Jayne Roberts . . . in brown and white crepe
was with Mark Piper of Albion . . . and they were among the many
who gathered around the punch bowl for refreshments. Mary Louise
Bierkamp in a stunning black crepe with white braid trimming and Clifton
McClew . . . seemed to be enjoying a short pause.
Despite the rainy weather there was much running back and forth
between the two dances. The girls ran through the center corridor, but
their escorts were forced to brave the dampness outside . . . As we entered the
lobby of Mosher we saw Maureen Kavanagh . . . president of Mosher . . .
who chose black velvet trimmed with white ermine for the dance. We no-
ticed her talking with Joe McCann and Elaine Cobo . . . who wore a good-
looking lavender metallic dress. Herb Baker appeared at that moment and
he and Elaine went out on the dance floor. Scott Daily successfully sneaked
into the kitchen and grabbed a few cookies for Soph Cabaret Chairman Angel.
Maliszewski. . . They sat in the radio room and ate them dropping crumbs
all over Angel's blue crepe.
Dancing At Betsy Barbour .. .
Betsy Barbour also entertained Saturday night. . . and from all reports
it was a very successful party. Rachel Lease was there wearing a flame
colored shirt waist dress with an accordian pleaed skirt. The house
president .. . Janet Peabody .. . ware a black crepe tunic dress. . . Mar-
got Goodrich . . . who by the way spent the summer in Portugal . . . .
chose a black velvet dress for the dance. A Phi Psi contingent including
Bill Griffiths . . . Harry Brelsford. . . and Rod Craighead also attended.
And at the League Saturday night . . . the Zimmerman brothers seem
to have a leaning toward freshmen women.. . Bob was with Doris Bolton
. . and Don had Peg Strickler as his guest. Tor Nordenson enjoyed
himself with Betty Preston . . . who was out from Detroit for the week end
.... Betty wore an attractive green frock . . . . Bill Shaw also was seent
with a Detroit girl . . . . Betty Davis who wore red. Sue Willard made
a striking appearance in a white and gold brocade with a black skirtt
.... and we cannot fail to give honorable mention to Marian Dickson whor
entertained the crowd with her singing . . . . she wore a black velvet formalt
decorated with rhinestones .
Sorority Pledge Formals...
From all report the Delta Gammas royally entertained everyone present
at their pledge formal last Friday night . . . one of the main drawing cards
for fun was the picture taken in the course of the evening ....
Just ask Mary LeVan who contributed mainly to the ruining of the dig-n
nified effect of the picture . . . we're sure she'll tell you Bill Griffiths . -
Maryanna Chockley was dressed in a rust-colored lace formal with shorta

cape sleeves and Marian Baxter in a white crepe with asimple gold belt
invited Chuck Coe . . . Roe Manchester looked very charming in a wine
velvet dress coming high in front and a low square neckline in back. n
The Sorosis girls certainly had a running start for the successful pledges
formal which they held last Saturday night . . . . for their decorations
created a very appropriate atmosphere . The mantle was banked with silverP
lame in front of which were strewn beautiful bouquets of red roses . . . . theA
lights gave a softening effect being covered with silver and black . . . . and i
the balloons and flowers through the house completed the picture . . . . but U
as we always said, "it's the people who make the party" . . . . . and here
are a few of those present . . . . Betty Anne Beebe . . . . in a black formal
with gold threads running through the material. . . . was with John Patter-
son a medjc student . . . and Jane Servis . . . wearing a gold cloth formal
fastened at the neck with heavy cord . . . listened to the music with John
Carson .. . . we didn't see them dancing as John was disabled from an injury
. ... Eleanor Skiles had as her guest Lee Moore. She wore a long-sleeved
black velvet dress.

Will Play For Ball

Emerson Gill, who will furnish the
music for the Panhellenic Ball, has
played at the Hotel Webster Hall,

ments or is particularly interested in
archery is eligible to participate in
this final contest.
Arrangements for the tournament
to be held indoors have been made

the contest to be carried on outside,
as has been the custom in other years.
Several participants already signed
up are those who won places last year.
Lillian Scott, '36, took first place
and Martha Bragg, '37, received sec-
ond place, in the contest last year.

The twelve pieces of modern French
painting, exhibited under the aus-
pices of the Ann Arbor Art Associa-
tion, are of particular interest in that
they stimulate one's imaginative
qualities. In this type of modern art,
there is, perhaps, more room for dis-
cussion and controversy than in any
other. Aside from acquaintance with
certain laws and the technique of
modern art, criticism lies wholly in
individual interpretation.
Pale Colors Used
The most comprehensible pieces
are the Laurencin pastelles, "The
Hammock" and "Head of a Woman,"
in which the desired affect is obtained
by the use of cool, pale colors. In
the first of these two paintings, grace
of line and color is outstanding. Pi-
casso's "Composition" and "Still
Life and Tulips" call for the most
subjective interpretation. The prin-
Activities Heads Asked

Cabaret, J.G.P., Assembly, Pan-

conducted through the East Medical
Building by special guides, seniors in
the University, who were trained for
this work by Miss Ethel McCormick,
social director of the League. Mrs.
Raymond Huff directed the meeting
in the place of Mrs. Charles Ramous,
regular chairman of the group, who
was absent.
