_TIE MICHIGAN DAILY PAGE FIVI
eX rr o- ound
This past weekend's activities were certainly long and drawn out .
commencing last Wednesday night with the Theta Xi pledge dance at the
League . . . and one of the regular membership dances at the Union.
Thanksgiving Day found the town rather deserted .. . and we are willing
to bet most of you went home and proceeded to eat too much turkey and
pumpkin pie . . . but then Thanksgiving only comes once a year . .
and so does Panhellenic Balls....o we will start there.
The League was packed Friday night with girls donned in dazzling
evening dresses and men in "white ties and tails" .. . For as everyone
knows this was the occasion of the famous annual Pan-Hell Ball which
every sorority girl makes an effort to attend. But that's not all . . . After
the strains of Emerson Gill's orchestra ceased at one o'clock most of the
houses served breakfast for their respective members and their guests.
Since everyone proclaimed this party the best ever these breakfasts proved
to be fetes of gaiety.
At The Sorority reakfasts ...
Let's go over to the Gamma Phi house first. There in a dining room
lighted by candles and harboring a bouquet of pink carnations on each
table sat a hoard of enthusiastic people . . . . At the head of the table
sat the president . . . Marg Spencer . . . dressed in white satin. Her
guest was a certain Ted St. Clair who hails from Detroit. And we couldn't
help but notice Mary Lambie . . . who was with Bob McKeever .m.t.
wearing a black formal. Yes . , . she's the one who was a committee
member. Dotty Webb . . . who had as her guest Bill Fredericks . . . Mary
Potter and "Mike" Sharpe . . . Louise Sprague and Russ Coward . . . Elsie
Moore with friend Jack Bishop . . . And Jean Shaw accompanied by Bruce
Kelly . . . were a few of the other guests who added to the merriment.
The Thetas likewise defied the idea of an end to activity when one
o'clock came. As the guests trouped into the dining room they were
impressed by the gourds which sat on each table . . . It seems they were
a California gift of some kind. A few of the guests whom we noticed
were . . . Betty Ronal with Fred Buesser . . . Betty Barth and Chuck Van
Winkle . . . Betty Shaffer sitting next to Steve Mason . . . Rod Craighead
as Adeline Singleton's guest . . . Mary Gies and Jim Ritter . . . and Mary
Johnson with Bob Burns. We might mention that the house president
. . . Jean Laitner . . . looked very charming in her blue velvet formal.
An Hilarious Evening...,
In looking in at the Pi Phi house we met with no let-down in spirits
. . . singing songs and inviting people like Phil Ordway always were a
sure way to a hilarious evening. The party sat around tables which
were decorated with yellow baby mums and rust colored chrysanthemums.
The dim light offered by the candles also added atmosphere. Betty Scherling
in a pretty white formal sat at the head of the center table. She had as her
guest Harold Love . . . Barbara Bates sat at the other end of the table
with Jim Wildes. And we couldn't help but notice Barb Hanna ...
the one who was leading all the songs. Duck Norman's the man she
was with . . . Bob Weeks and Jennie Peterson . . . Edith Zerbe and
Bud Doerr . . . and Mary Margaret Barnes with Don Sweeney were
a few of the other guests who were present.
Upon walking in on the Delta Gammas the first thing we noticed
were the table decorations : . . colorful bouquets . . . Jean Hatfield . . .
who was in charge of the breakfast . . . was dressed in a cut velvet
formal of plum shade ... Her guest was Willis Tomlinson. . . Sue Thomas
with George Lawton was there too. They occupied the center of the
stage as they well deserved . . . "Swell Ball" say we all . . . Harriet Hath-
away and Tom Sullivan . . . and Mary Louise Willoughby and John Mann
. . . were a few of the other couples present.
Elaborate Table Decorations ...
And the Chi Omegas really did their breakfast up in grand style . . .
strong on the decorations . . . Every table was covered with black oil cloth
and three silver Chi Omega crests served as striking contrasts for the
black . . . On each table was also a bouquet of snapdragons. June Arnold
the president of the house . . . wore a white satin formal. Philip Mit-'
chell was her guest. Barbara Spencer sat beside Bing Cary . . . and Sallys
Brown seemed to be enjoying herself with Phil Warner . .
The breakfast at the Tri-Delt house certainly drew a large crowd .. .
Adele McDonald was there with Walker Graham and Marion Bell with
Earl Morrill . . . we noticed Louise Florez talking to Joe Smith, and Mary
Ellen McCord, Bob Taylor, Mary Beth Tarbell and Bob Ward also seemed
to be having a grand time . . . Dorothy Sprau and Bob Langford were seen
admiring the centerpiece of white snapdragons, while several couples were
grouped around the fireplace . . ,
A round The Mantle . .
The Sorosae all seemed to have enjoyed themselves at the breakfast
which was held at the house following the dance . . . Jane O'Farrell was
noticed talking to John Rockwell, and Betty Ann Beebe with John Patterson
. . around the mantlepiece which was decorated with yellow chrysanthe-'
mums were Jacqueline Kolle and Brad Carpenter . . . also among thoset
present were Marion Edgerton and Pierson Beebe . .
The dining room of the Alpha Chi Omega house was filled with guests
at the breakfast after the ball. Dorothy Shutt's green orchid was nice and
fresh for the breakfast for it did not arrive until 10:45 p.m. . . . long after
Dorothy was at the dance. Her guest was Rush Bowman. Betty Rich .
president of the sorority was there with Frank Rennell . . . and Grace Lamb
was with Bob McQueen who came out from Detroit for the ball. Marjorie
Kess's guest was Jack Wilson . . . incidentally . . . Marg is wearing
Jack's pin. .

metropolitan paper," he stated,
"don't attempt to work for it, and
don't be afraid to learn the ABC's of
journalisms on a small town paper."
Professor Haines expressed the be-
lief that knowledge of stenography
and typing is the "open sesame" to
work in a publishing house.
"In fiction writing," he continued,
"woman's chance is perhaps better
than the man's, for women are prac-
tical and imaginatively daring." It
was his belief that it is not so much
of a shock for women as for men to
realize that they must think of the
product of their inspring moments
as a commodity to sell.
After the speeches, Senior Society,
honor society for independent senior
women, inaugurated the new custom

Project Plans Announced
By Maryanna Chockley;
To Be Held Dec. 13, 14
Maryanna Chockley, '37, was
named chairman of the League Fair
to be given Dec. 13 and 14 in con-
junction with the Sophomore Cab-
aret, by the Undergraduate Council
of the League last night.
The Fair will carry on the central
theme of this year's Cabaret-the
Grand Central Station with the
catch word, "All Aboard," Miss
Chockley announced. The Fair is to
be in the form of a "train smoker,"
and will be held in the Grand Rapids
Room of the League, she added.
Senior Society has announced its
intention to present an old fashioned
melodrama as a part of the Fair,
ard it will be held in the Ethel Foun-
tain Hussey Room. The proceeds
from this play are to be used to
further the scholarship fund started
by the organization this year. These
scholarships are to be given to sopho-
Other women's honorary societies
including Mortarboard and Wyvern
will be in charge of booths. Addi-
tional entertainments will feature
target games with three chances to
knock off the "kewpee" and win the
doll; professional fortune telling; old
fashioned tin-types; and cartoon
drawings, Miss Chockley stated.
President and Mrs. Ruthven en-
tertained more than 50 faculty mem-
bers at a reception which was held
from 4 to 6 p.m., Sunday. These
teas are held once each month and
are of an informal nature.
The refreshments, cake and tea,
were served all afternoon. Mrs.
Mehmet Aga-Oglu, wife of Professor
Aga-Oglu of the Oriental religions
department, was chosen to pour.
The flowers throughout the house
brightened the congenial atmosphere
which prevailed. On the dining room
table was a bouquet of red roses,
while bouquets of large yellow mums
were seen in the living room.
There will be another tea in a
month which will also honor faculty
members, Mrs. Ruthven announced.

Soph Cabaret Is Continuation
Of Annual University Custom
Originated As A Circus out in the Gypsy motif and trans-
When Michigan Became formed the auditorium of Sarah Cas-
By ROBERTA J. MELIN,
There may be those of you who
think that the Sophomore Cabaret
as it has been presented in the past'
few years is a comparatively new ac-
tivity in the social life of the Univer-
sity; but those who might think so
are very badly mistaken, for the
custom began early in the days when
Michigan became a co-educational
school and the Sophomore women
originated the traditional Sophomore
This affair continued to be an an-
nual event until six years ago when
the central committee of the Soph-
omore project decided to try some-
thing new and different and con-
ceived the idea of changing the cir-
cus into a cabaret, a custom which
is still in existence today and which
will be observed by the Sophomore
women this year Friday and Satur-
day. Dec. 13 and 14, in the ballroom
of the League.
The first caaaret was presented
in 1929 in Barbour Gymnasium, with
Emily Bates, '32, acting as general
chairman and Mrs. Byrl Fox Bacher,
assistant dean of women, serving
as the advisor for the central com-
mittee. Like any new innovation,
this first cabaret was a dubious ven-
ture and was held on a much less
pretentious scale than it is today.
Nevertheless, in spite of the uncer-
tainty with which the central com-
mittee proceeded in its plans, the
final financial report showed a total
profit of almost $200, a very sub-
stantial increase over the proceeds
[of the previous circuses. Decora-
tions for this cabaret were carried
