Well there certainly was a Merry-Go-Round of fraternity and sorority
parties. this week-end . . . and loads and loads of people were back in

in on all the various dances.

Bob Alexander . . . Liz Allen in a dark red metallic with Ray Whitney . . .
Larry Smith and Barbara Lutz . . . who was in pink and black .. . and
Barbara Coventry was there with Fred Norton. Barbara looking stunning
in a green uncut velvet. Helen Price in black was dancing with Chuck

among their friends were there . . . and there was quite a mob. Barbara
Worth was dancing with John Park . . . _ and we saw Eleanor Heckathorn
and Bob Yates together . . . Eleanor was in orange taffeta. As is their cus-
tom . . . the Betas and their dates formed a long chain and marched
about the house over tables and chairs . . . and we could not help but
notice a few of the co-eds who were there. Among them were . . . Betty
Van Dyne..g raduate . . .sJane Edmonson . . . Marjorie Swann . . in a
white grecian formal . . . as the guest of Bud Matthews .. and Nancy

There was much excitement up on Washtenaw Friday night especially
at the Phi Kappa Sigma house . . . As we came in we noticed Theta Harriet
Pomeroy in red taffeta dancing by with Chuck Brooks ... and as we pro-
ceeded to the ciowd around th refreshment table we saw Marjorie Stebbins
and Barbara Teall who were standing in the hall talking to Allen Crewson1
and Bob Mansfield . . . . Barbara was in white satin and Marjorie in a
lovely black velvet cut on grecian lines . . . Jean McGregor and Bob Palmert
agreed with us . . . it was a grand party. . .

for the game and Nancy Hulwick had a stunning red wool dress . . .
Jean Greenwald dropped in later wearing a lovely knitted tweed wool .. .
. . . people wandered about from one house to the next . . . and looked
At The Pi Phi House....
It seemed as though a steady stream of people kept coming through the
yellow picket gate of the Pi Beta Phi house Saturday night where the actives
were entertaining the pledges. Betty Scherling . . . president of the
chapter. . . had as her guest Harold Love. She was dressed in a blue formalt
with a high neck and a beaded top. Mary Margaret Barnes and Don Sweenyk
were dancing together . . . Mary Margaret was wearing a red crepe formal>

Joe Sahlmark . .. Dorothy Shutt appeared in a blue satin formal with af
cowl neck. A white crepe formal with princess lines and black straps over the
shoulders ... was worn by Dorothy Hood. . . a graduate.C
After The Game"...F
The League was a popular place as usual after the game Saturday night c
. . . the tables extended throughout the entire south wing on second floor.
In the main dining room at the Alpha Sig's table we noticed Lucille John-t

ston and Larry Evans talking with Lois Keddy and Stanley Anderson ... .
Lucille was in green crepe with a huge gold buckle and Lois wore black
trimmed in whitetruching . . Mary Knight and Ted Miller were alsothere
but they got up to dance as the music floated through the corridor. We
caught a glimpse of Adelaide Ely and Larry Briggs dancing by as we stopped
to talk with Barbara Roberts and Frank Stone at the Lawyers table . . .
Barbara wore a lovely brown crepe trimmed with brown velvet.
There were just loads of alumni back for this week's game especially from
the last year's class . . . Chuck Baird was dancing by with Nancy Kover
who wore a lovely wine velvet . . . The high spot of the evening was when
the trio from last year . . . Maxine Maynard . . . Mary Morrison and Jean
Seeley.. . agreed to sing a few numbers ... They were really generous and
sang several times during the evening . . . apparently enjoying their reunion
as well as we did.

It is doubtful if many art exhibits
have aroused more various and sun-
dry opinions on the campus than has
the much discussed group of French
paintings in Alumni Memorial Hall.
The views of students and profes-
sors alike are not only taken from
different angles of opinion and lev-
els of experience but from entirely
different planes of thought. It seems
to be primarily either a matter of
one's aesthetic endurance, tolerance
or insight. Perhaps it is all of this
and more. At any rate it is the in-
dividual's indisputable right to think
as and what he will.
Prof. J. P. Slusser in commenting
upon the exhibition says that it is

Tea At League,
Miss Ethel McCormick will pour at
the book week tea to be held from
4 to 6 p.m. today in the League Li-
brary. At that time the questions on
books and authors which havebeen
placed in the question box will be
answered by Miss Mary Wedemeyer,
Although all League members are
invited, special invitations have been
extended to Mrs. Alexander G. Ruth-
ven, Miss Margaret Mann, Miss Edith
Thomas, Miss Eunice Wead, Mrs. Wil-
liam W. Bishop, Mrs. Mary B. Hen-
derson, Dr. Margaret Bell and Dr.
Helene Schutz, according to Julie
Kane, '36, who is in charge of the
Members of the House Reception
Committee will act as hostesses. This
ncludes Harriet Hathaway, '38, Adele
Polier, '38, and Dorothy Oostdyk, '37.
Special displays and exhibits will
carry out the motto of the Book
Week which is "Reading for Recrea-

extreme, and an "important group
in that it is representative of School
of Paris painting." Professor Slus-
ser added that it is also significant as
Picasso and Matisse are undoubtedly
the best known modern painters liv-
ing. He says, "Matisse, the colorist
of the group, does a remarkable job
of simplication in design and col-
Discussed In Lecture
Prof. B. M. Donaldson in his gallery
lecture speaks of the Matisse and
Picasso paintings as studies of planes
and masses. "These painters," he
says, "are all radicals, representative
of their time - an age of confusion
and uncertainty. Science and meta-
physics are taking their place in art,
and whether we like it or not, we must
not close our eyes to it.
"Matisse, a student of Persian and
oriental textures, has worked toward
reproducing the rich, mosiac-like col-
oring, characteristic of Persian min-
Student Viewpoint
Professor Donaldscn concluded his
lecture by advising the students not
to oppose stubbornly but rather to
be interested in the new and experi-
mental -even though it does not
please -and to accept the paintings
for what they are.
General student opinion inclines
toward a conservative view. One
observer gave but one terse comment
on the Braque "Composition"-
"Spring house cleaning in the attic!"
The most strenuous objections were
levelled against the Matisse colorings
and the so called "unbalance" of the
Picasso paintings. It is interesting
vo note that these two most important
exponents of modernism should
arouse the severest criticism.
-It has been well said, "There is
no disputing tastes."
