THE MICHIGAN DAILY
THE SPORTING LADY
By THREE BLIND -M-ICE-
For all you readers who really want to know what is happening ... It's
really a problem to know where to begin . . . The second intramural season
is actually under way now . .. And so many things are happening. . .
The ever-popular tournaments . . . Also these recent and surprising snow-
falls are encouraging to ye outdoor lovers.
'Merry Christmas To All.. .
The Graduate Outing Club has scheduled its annual Christmas party
and chicken dinner today . . . So far, about thirty are planning attending
. . . They're to start from Lane Hall at 3 p.m. . . Their destination is
Camp Newkirk near Dexter . .. And they're going in for sports in the
afternoon .. . We hear that Dave Cleverdon, Henry Silver, Corinne Fries,
Gertrude Knight, Wayne Whittacker, Margaret Schneeberger, "Pat" Rice,
and Edward Marceau are among those attending . . .
Thursday was an eventful day at Barbour Gym . . . No less than a
big group of teams appeared to play . . . It promises to be a real tourna-
ment . .. Competition and a true spirit of rivalry are in the air . . . Partic-
ularly enthusiastic are Zones II and III and IV and V . . . And the sororities
entered plenty of representatives to make some very enthusiastic teams . . .
The Alpha Phis came through, and have their own ideas about which is the
best team . . . And it's confidence that makes for a winning team .
The Pi Phis and the Tri-Delts are also getting in lots of practice . . . And
by this time you've probably imagined that the A.D.Pis are also represented
by a good sextet and some substitutes who will also play ... Everyone that
is interested is going to have a chance to play, and there will be some
real sport . .. This is a chance for the active sporting lady to get into
action .. . All the teams are not entered yet . . . So if you're busy organ-
izing one, do it right away .. . Because straight elimination in the tourna-.
ment will begin right after Christmas holidays, and your team and time
preferences should be in right away .. .
Watch The Birdie.. .
And the ladder tournament in badminton looks quite intriguing .. .
To enter you put your name at the bottom of the list and keep moving
it upward, that if, if your opponent's name is above yours and you win the
game .. . On the other hand, if you're above and you lose, your opponent
trades places with you as you go downwards.. . . Tricky, eh? .. . A player
may challenge either of the two prayers preceding her name on the list . .
We noticed the names of Betsy O'Dell, Mary Jane Shields, Louise Paine,
Mary McClure and Helene Kipf while we gazed, fascinated at such a
complicated affair . . . And we understand it's a big fight in the gym]
nowadays between the basketball courts and the badminton nets . . . The
latter must come down before the former can be played .. . And those birds
seem to be so interested in those ropes . . . Then about the mixed badminton
. .. Twenty men and women reported . . . Teams are being formed and a
match with the faculty is one of their plans for the near future . . .
The W.A.A. bulletin board in Barbour Gym has taken up costume de-
signing . . . Anyway "the Sports Vogue" advises all the women as to the
latest outdoor sport togs . . . So if you're in doubt as to what you wish
Santa Claus to bring, here's one solution .. .
And have you seen the new W.A.A. bulletins that are being put out to
help show the freshman women what it's all about . . . Really quite pa-
triotic with their alternating pages of blue and gold . .. And they've even
a box on the front to inscribe one's name on and thus keep it safe from
designing roommates and the like . . . It contains just about everything
anyone could possibly want to know about women's sports this year . . .
Brenda Parkinson is heading the committee for their distribution .. .
Tunes Of Long Ago. ..
The dance club is giving an exhibition of its talents next week .
We think it would be worth anybody's while to wander over to the League
next Wednesday . . . Dec. 18 . . . At 4:15 p.m. and see the dancers .
With Julia Wilson as manager and Miss Ruth Bloomer as faculty advisor
they ought to have a fine program . . . They are dropping the popular
modern note for a while and presenting music, songs, and dances of the 17th
century only . . . The music, which is by Bach and Purcell, is used because it
has definite dance form in itself . . . The dances are reconstructed from
the 17th century dances as much like the originals as the composer could'
get with the scanty information concerning the actual routines . . . A suite
of dances is to be given and the names, if they mean anything to you, are
Saraband, Gavotte, and Allemande. .. The music will be played by a string
quartette, the first time that instruments have been used with the dancing
on his campus . . . The artists for the afternoon will be Ila May Browns,
Beatrice Lovejoy, Mary Jane Muehler, Mary Belle, Betty Gipe, Julia Wilson,
and Bernice and "Bud" Folkson . . . The last two, as you may know, are
twins and as far as records go they are the first twins to appear in the dance
club performances . . . We hear that it is a wonderful sight to watch them
dance because they have perfect coordination . . . But maybe you'd like
to come and see for yourself . . .
So far about forty people have come out for rifle . . . Miriam Miller,
Emilie Marcus, Helen Harp, Sally Kenny, Ruth Wood, Frances O'Dell, Edna
Kandelin and Mildred Funk are among those improving with leaps and
bounds . . . Or does one improve in a different manner in riflery? .. .
Anyhow we're inclined to agree with "Pete" Hartwig's remark that it looks
like "Here come the British, Bang! Bang!" . . . Anyone can still enter
and Betty Robertson, rifle manager, will supply any information needed .

Is Crowded At
Floor Show Is Received
Fair Also Successful
By ROBERTA MELIN
The seventh annual Sophomore
Cabaret assumed yesterday the ap-
pearances of what may prove to be
an unprecedented success for any
other affair of its kind.
In spite of the numerous frater-
nity parties held last night, the floor
of the League ballroom, the scene of
the cabaret, was crowded during both
the afternoon and evening. The only
flaw to appear was that there were
not enough hostesses to accommo-
date the huge number of stags pres-
ent, and Miss Ethel McCormick, so-
cial director of the League, has an-
nounced that 100 more sophomore
women will be contacted today and
urged to turn out to act as "travel-
ler's aids" for the even larger crowd
The floor show, which was present-
led at 4:30 p.m. and again at 10:45
p.m., was received enthusiastically by
the audience. Honors seem to go to
Mary Kelkenney, chairman of the
entertainment committee, who ar-
ranged and directed all of the dances
in the program besides doing an in-
tricate cane tap dance herself as
the last number.
The League Fair, held in conjunc-
tion with the Cabaret, also was
termed a huge success, according to
Maryanna Chockley, general chair-
man. The tin-typist and fortune
teller were extremely popular during
the course of the evening, as were the
boutonnieres of mistletoe sold by Wy-
Many members of the Cabaret's
central committee were seen on the
dance floor during both the afternoon
and evening. Angel Maliszewski, gen-
eral chairman, appeared in the after-
noon in a long blue crepe tea dress.
At night she was seen dancing with
Bill Griffiths and wearing a white
crepe formal with a large orchid
pinned at the neckline. Harriet
Shackleton, dancing with Dave Bar-
nett, wore a long dark blue crepe
and seemed to be living up to her po-
sition as chairman of the hostess
The Cabaret will be held again to-
day in the ballroom of the League.
Dancing will begin at 3:30 p.m and

WARMTH is really a necessity-

you are sure of lasting beauty and
quality in buying at-
Do you fear for your fate on Christmas morning? Do your
kind-hearted fathers and brothers possess that unhappy fac-
ulty for buying the wrong things .. . and spending a small
fortune in the process? One strategic move . . . delicately
handled . . . and that painful experience will assuredly not
be repeated. Merely this: sneak this page onto his desk (with
all items that you hanker after carefully checked), leave in a
conspicuous spot. Whereupon he (unsuspecting soul) slips
said page into his pocket, sails down to Mack's, ascends to
the Second Floor . . . and our clever clerks do the rest.
