The orchestra for the prom has
not as yet been definitely chosen, but
the committee plans to announce it
by the end of this week. After the
decision has been made the price of
the dance will be made known.

ternately chosen from the literary1

Fourth Lecture Of Series
Has Hero Of New France
Prof. Anthony J. Jobin of the
French department will address the
Cercle Francais on the most romantic
and picturesque figures of the heroic
age of New France, at 4:15 p.m. today
in Room 103, Romance Language
The leading figure of this age is
Pierre LeMoyne d'Iberville, who did a1
great deal to influence North Amer-
ican history, according to Professor
Jobin. The description of the back-
ground and some of the outstanding
events of the last decades of New
France under Louis XIV explains in
part the appearance of such a large
number of extraordinary and versa-
tile men of action, such as Marquette,
Joliet, LaSalle, DuLhut, and the nine
brothers of LeMoyne, says Professor
This lecture will be particularly in-
teresting to everyone in Michigan
since settlements in Mackinaw, Sault
Sainte Marie, and Detroit were made
during this heroic age.
This is the fourth lecture which
the Cercle Francais has sponsored
New Walking Shoes Designed IBenefit Card Party
For Comfort Under Galoshes! Aids Rural Library
By BARBARA LOVELL
The vogue for high-heeled fur-
trimmed galoshes creates a problem
these cold snowy days. One cannot
wear one's favorite flat heeled ox-
fords on campus, and high heels gen-
erally are not noted for supreme com-
Manufacturers have cleverly metI
this problem by presenting a host of
new shoes whose heels are tall enough
for wear with galoshes, yet so well-
constructed as to be comfortable on
your jaunts from class to class. These
models also seem subtly to introduce
an unexpected, pleasing note of spring
without being so extreme as to be
ridiculous in midwinter. Flats area
good, but not many are being shown
in comparison with the heeled num-
bers. One startling fact is that prac-
tically all of the newest shoes feature
square, stubby toes.
Patent leather is fashionable once
more, recommendable to the college
woman because of its practicality and
beauty. Combined with dull kid or
fabric in beige and brown it makes
a stunning dressier pump. The heel
and a wide band on the toe are of
shiny patent, highlighted by a gold
metal button on the vamp. Contrasts
of patent with dull leather is also
effectively carried out in another
slipper. Bands of the gleaming
leather are applied in a curving trim
and there is also the popular bow-
Patent Is In Vogue
For dress occasions patent also
reigns supreme. A flattering dress
sandal features an open toe and heel.
Criss-cross straps° contrast pin dotted
and sleek leather and the widedstrap
buckles on the side. The cut-out
toe this season is much smaller and
less conspicuous than last year's ver-
sions - therefore more becoming. An-
other design to make the foot appear
smaller is the use of a very tiny
floral patterned print of silk crepe'
of blotting paper texture. Any of
these models could appear to effec-
tive advantage at the J-Hop.
The support of the rural library
movement was furthered at a benefit
card party given at 8 p.m. yesterday
by the Ann Arbor Business and Pro-
fessional Women's Club at Harris
The club originated the county
library several years ago and has con-
tinued supplying it with books pur-
chased with funds earned at the an-
nual benefit party, and collected at
each meeting. Other agencies have
contributed to the funds and last
spring with appropriations from the
state a unit of the library was estab-
lished at Milan with the services of
a librarian. Efforts to make this
unit permanent and establish others
is the present aim of the club.
