eral, usually taking the easiest way
out, there is no place at the Uni-
versity for the Council if it is to fol-
low sentiment in every case, although
we do take campus opinion into con-
"3. Coming into contact, as the
Council does, with all problems which
occur in campus affairs, this body is
forced to take a much broader view,
and to see both sides of the question,
more than the individual woman.''
The reasons advanced by the Coun-
cil for its action were:
1. There have been many com-
plaints by professors that students
are bolting their Saturday morning
2. House mothers and dormitory
heads have reported cases of "fa-
tigue" on the part of undergraduate
women during week-ends.
3. Saturday classes are now defi-
nitely a permanent institution at the
University, whereas at first they were
believed only tentative.
Blakeman To Talk
At Hillel Discussion
"Religion and the State" will be
discussed by Dr. Edward W. Blake-
man, counsellor in religious e'duca-
tion, at 8 p.m. today at Hillel Founda-
tion. The talk is one in a series of
bi-weekly discussions, the theme of
which is religion in a changing world.
The primary purpose of these non-
sectarian talks, Dr. Blakeman ex-
plained, is to arouse University stu-
dents from their apparent indiffer-
ence to religious issues. Their im-
portance in the world today, he point-
ed out, is attested by the severe de-
mands Nazidom is making upon Jews,I
Lutherans, and Catholics, and the
problem facing churches everywhere
as the war threat grows.
Committee Appointed For
Student Volunteer Parley
A committee on the Student Vol-
unteer convention to be held in In-
dianapolis, Ind., during the Christ-
mas holidays was organized yester-
day in the office of Dr. Edward Blake-
man, counsellor of Religious Educa-
tion. The organization ofthe dele-
gation was assigned to George Aber-
nethy, Grad., and a representative of
each student Guild.
This conference will bring between
1,500 and 2,000 students from all over
the country to Indianapolis. The con-
vention, which is a meeting of stu-
dents interested in. Christian mis-
sionary movements will be attended
by around 20 students representing
the University.

Contrary to most beliefs, there is
one instance in which fashion is not
noticeably fickle, and that is in the
costume of cap, gown and hood.
The cap and gown as it is today
is the result of a long, slow period of
evolution, but nowhere along the line
has there been any radical departure
from established custom. In 1321, the
University of Coimbra required all its
"Doctors, Licentiates and Bachelors"
to wear a gown. Later in the same
century certain English colleges offi-
cially prescribed the uniform use of
a long gown and expressly forbade
"excess in apparel." It is interesting
to note that the chilly interiors of
medidval university buildings doubt-
less considerably influenced the
length of the garment.
Hood Adopted For Warmth
It is unknown whether academic
garb originally was derived from ec-
clesiastical or civilian dress; it prob-
ably was a combination of the two.
The hood is supposed to have been
adopted for warmth; it was super-
seded in that use, first by the skull-
cap and later by the "mortar-board,"
but it still survives in the costume of
the modern professor on Commence-
ment Day.
The University has just revised its
regulations regarding academic garb'
to agree with the code set up this year
by the American Council on Educa-
tion, which, in turn, follows closely
Hobbs Speaks On
Modern Explorers
Prof.-Emeritus William H. Hobbs of
the' geology department addressed the
members of the American Association
of University Women on the subject
of modern explorers at the regular
monthly meeting of the organization,
which took place Tuesday night in
the Ethel Fountain Hussey Room of
the League.
The interest of Professor Hobbs lec-
ture, which was illustrated with lan-
tern slides, was greatly increased by
the fact that he possesses intimate
knowledge through association with
many of the explorers discussed.
A short business meeting preceded
the lecture, which was followed by
the serving of resfreshments. Faculty
members and their wives who are in
Ann Arbor for the first time this year
were among the guests.
Seniors In High School
To Study Campus Life
At a cabinet meeting last night in
the upper room of Lane Hall, Evelyn
Maloy, '36, was chosen chairman of
a committee which will make ar-
rangements to provide facilities per-
mitting senior students in Michigan
high schools to make excursions to
the University campus in the spring.:
The annual sociology trip to Chi-
cago to study slum conditions and

was set for some time in February or

this trip, there will be several trips
to Detroit and Toledo.

the rules adopted by a conference
of college representatives in 1895 at
Columbia University. Only a few
minor changes were necessary.
Regulations Are Detailed
The regulations, however, are as
minutely detailed as any military uni-
form. The length of the sleeve, the
width of the edging of the hood, are
prescribed to the inch, along with the
color and the placing of the trim-
The degree - bachelor's, master's
or doctor's -is advertised by the cut
of the gown and length of the hood.
The inside lining of the hood is used
to designate the institution which
confers the degree. The edging of the
hood including the velvet band that
encircles the wearer's neck, shows by
its color the subject in which the
degree was granted; thus, white is
for arts and letters, orange for en-
gineering, brown for architecture,'
russet for forestry, purple for law,
green for medicine, light blue for edu-
cation, olive green for pharmacy, lilac
for dentistry, drab for business ad-
ministration and pink for music.
Michigan seniors also wear tassels of
these colors on their caps.
New Members Talk On
French Club Program
Short speeches in French by new
members were featured in the pro-
gram of Le Cercle Francais at its
regular meeting at 7:35 last night in
Room 408, Romance Languages
Building. This procedure was an in-
teresting departure from the custo-
mary one, in which the speakers are
members of the department who have
traveled abroad. Prof. Rene Tal-
amon of the French department,
faculty adviser of the group, greeted
the members.
Th^ meeting was followed by a so-
cial hour.
Pi Lambda Theta, national honor-
ary educational sorority, held an open
meeting last night in the University
Elementary School library. "Thumb-
nail sketches in art design" was the
subject of the lecture given by Prof.
