Decoration Theme Shows
Engineering Influence;
Dance To Be Tradition
More than 300 couples danced to
Teddy Brewer's music last night at
the dimly-lighted Union ballroom
during the first Engineering Ball in
campus history. Brewer's orchestra
came from the Indian Room at In-
dianapolis, Ind., where he has been
broadcasting regularly over the Co-
lumbia Broadcasting System.
The ballroom was simply but ef-
fectively decorated. A huge replica
of the Engineering Arch was mounted
over the fireplace, and around the
walls were placed plaques repre-
senting the various engineering so-
cieties sponsoring the dance.
Florence Harper Leads March
Florence Harper, '36, looked par-
ticularly attractive, as she led the
Grand March with Francis Wallace,
'36E, chairman of the central com-
mittee. Miss Harper wore orchid
crepe, draped along Grecian lines,
with a round collar of bugle beads.
Her slippers were silver and her ac-
cessories rhinestone.
Other members of the central com-
mittee and their guests were Robert
Merrill, '36E, Adeline Singleton '38;
Lyle Reading, '36E, and Louise Juck-
ett, Detroit; Howard Jackson, '36E
and Ruth Lavender, '37; and Charles
Marschner, '36E with Harriet Shack-
leton, '38. Miss Singleton's formal
was rose moiree, full-skirted and with
a little cape. It was trimmed in
brown, and she wore brown acces-
sories. Miss Lavender looked charm-
ing in tangerine silver lame, cut in
Grecian style.
Also noticed during the Grand
March were Jane Mutschler, '37, in
red velvet trimmed with brilliants,
and Robert Warner, '36E. Gail Well-
wood, '38, with Lawrence Lentz, '35E;
Mary Dayharsh, from Syracuse Uni-
versity, N.Y., and Robert Baldwin,
'37E; sand Harriet Breay '37, with
John Ingold, '37E.
Regal Wine Velvet Worn
Phyllis Jean Campbell, '38, wore a
regal wine velvet gown with stand-
up collar. She was the guest of John
Henderson, '38. Jean Friederici, '37,
accompanied by Edward Morrison,
'37E, appeared in a pink crepe form-
al featuring a rhinestone belt. Mary
Ellen Menard, '37, attending with Bill
Forcey, '37E, chose black velvet with
an interesting back decolletage
formed of criss-cross straps. Betty
Chapman, '36, selected royal blue un-
cut velvet for the affair.
Entering the crowded ballroom we
noticed Virginia Handeyside, '38, in
black velvet, and Louise Sprague in
roman-striped crepe. Louise was
with Bill Mason, '36E. Dorothy Cur-
tis, '36, danced by with Ed Katzen-
meyer, '38. Dorothy's black organza
dress proved a striking contrast to
her blond hair. Betty Sonke, '36,
wore a lovely gown of gold lame,
princess-styled, with a high collar.
She was with Willis Hawkins, '37E.
Janet Allington, '38, appeared in black
In The Corridor
In the corridor we saw Esther Ann
DeWitt, '38, in flame crepe with silver
accessories as well as Jean Flecken-
stine, '36, with Roger Schlingnam,
'36. Jean was wearing an attractive

formal of green taffeta accented
around the bottom by fluffy ruffles
which ended in a train. Fanny Wild-
er, '37, attending with Robert Waters,
'36E was seen by the fountain. She
selected green satin, fashioned with
one of the new panels down the back,
and finished by a train.
Nancy Cassidy, '38, was seen danc-
ing with Jim Talcott, '36. Her form- 1
al was beige crepe trimmed cleverly
with brown. Also in the ballroom

This method of collection was used

Superstition; Show
Ready For Opening
In spite of the fact that the Sopho-
more Cabaret will begin its two-day
run on a Friday the thirteenth, the
members of the central committee
aren't at all appalled, and in order to
prove that they don't consider that
the superstition will act as a jinx of
any sort, they have ruled that danc-
ing for the first hour on Friday af-
ternoon will be free.
The cabaret will begin at 3:30 p.m.
and all dancers will be admitted with-
out a ticket until 4:30 p.m. After
that, the charge is to be 25 cents for
general admission and five cents for
every dance.
The central committee is particu-
larly stressing the fact that all stag
dancers have been invited. One hun-
dred sophomore women have been se-
lected to act as hostesses.
In order to further carry out the
central theme of the cabaret, which
is centered around the activity in a
Grand Central station, the hostesses
will be considered as members of the
Travellers' Aid, and will wear badges
blaring these words in order to dis-
tinguish them from the rest of the
Tickets for the dancing will be sold
at several travellers' aid information
boothes to be located at various places
around the ballroom. So that it may
be seen easily, each booth will have
on it a large lighted globe bearing the
words "Travellers' Aid."
The cabaret will be held in the af-
ternoon and evening of both Friday
and Saturday, Dec. 13 and 14. Danc-
ing will begin at 3:30 p.m. and again
at 9 p.m. There will be a floor show
which will begin at 4:15 p.m. and at
10:45 p.m.
The engagement of Bernice Kavin-
oky, '35, daughter of Dr. and Mrs.
Samuel Kavinoky, Buffalo, N.Y., to
William Isaacson, '37L, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Louis Isaacson of Gallitzin,
Pa., was announced recently. The
wedding will take place in February.

History Student Is Here
From Japan To Gain
Broader Viewpoint
The bond of friendship between
Japan and the United States is con-
tinually being strengthened by the
Barbour Scholars. Among those at-
tending the University is Mrs. Yoshi
Akagi, of Tokyo,
Mrs. Akagi, who is residing at Betsy
Barbour House, is studying in the
history department, and is planning
to receive her M. A. degree in June.
She will return to Tokyo to teach.
Gains Broader Experience
Her purpose in studying in Amer-
ica, Mrs. Akagi says, is to gain a
broader experience in life outside of
Japan, so that she may be equipped
'o aid the young people of that
ecuntry in adjusting themselves to
modern ideas. She has a keen inter-
est in the problems of the youth of
Japan, who are being seriously affect-
ed by the conflicts through which
their country is passing.
Besides, she points out, the mem-
bers of the older generation there
tend to be old-fashioned in their
ideas, maintaining a conservative at-
titude towards youth. Many of them,
who are not progressive, attempt to
curb the freedom of young people in
their friendships outside of the home.
Thus, Mrs. Akagi, herself a member
of the younger generation in Japan,
feels that by steeping herself for a
time in foreign ideas, she will be able
to return to her country better fitted
to be a counsellor to the young people.
Describes sectionalism
Previous to attending the Univer-
sity, Mrs. Akagi spent two years in
Starrit College, a Methodist institu-
tion in Nashville, Tenn. Later she
took up her studies at Columbia Uni-
versity, N. Y., where she received her
B.S. degree. Each section of the
country, as she sees it, has its own
particular problems, those of the
South being racial and those of New
England primarily economic.
Now that she has become acquaint-
ed with America, Mrs. Akagi realizes
the difficulties besetting the forma-
League Library
Adds 66Books
To Collection
The new League Library is a rap-
idly developing organization, atten-
dance records showing a material in-
crease of 113 visitors this month and

collection of contemporary works, are

in the month table exhibits of books
suitable for different members of the

Miss Mary Wedemeyer, librarian,
statd that the library is anxious to
receive back numbers of any maga-

Lion of international friendships. "It
is a great deal harder for a foreigner
to make close friendships in this
country, than one would believe," she
She believes that an important
cause of the strained relationship'
existing between the United States
and Japan which has been distributed
in both countries for the purpose of
instilling a hatred in the people for
the citizens of the other country. In-
ternational friendshipsmust come
gradually and will not, she feels, be
achieved for hundreds of years. "Be-
sides broadening the outlook of the
youth in Japan," Mrs. Akagi says, "I
want to aid, if I can, in the develop-
ment of the ideal international
