Superstition Scorned By
Committee To Honor
Eight unaffiliated women were
named yesterday to serve as members
of the central committee for the 1936
Assembly Ball to be given March 13,
in the Ballroom of the League, Mary
Ellen Heitsch, '37, general chairman,
Janet Karlson, '38, was named as-
sistant chairman. The committee
chairmen are: Helen Jesperson, '38,
chaperons; Josephine Montee, '38,
music; Virginia York, '37, programs;
Florence McConkey, '38, decorations;
Barbara Schacht, '37, publicity; Jane
McDonald, '38, finance; and Margaret
Anne Ayres, '38, tickets.
Appointments Are Made
The appointments were made after
the unaffiliated women had petitioned
to the Executive Board of Assembly.
The Board, composed of Maureen
Kavanagh, '36, president, the officers,
and Miss Ethel McCormick, faculty
adviser, announced its selections after
it had interviewed each applicant.
The dance will mark the second
annual Assembly Ball ever to be given
by the independent women, and is the
only all-campus party which is given
by women during the second semester.
It corresponds to the Panhellenic
Ball given by sorority women during
the first semester. The 1935 Assembly
Ball was attended by more than 300
Committee Scorns Superstition
The central committee scorned all
superstition by arranging for this
year's dance to fall on Friday the
thirteenth, in order to honor the
birthday of Miss Kavanagh, this
year's Assembly president.
The decoration motif has tentative-
ly been planned to carry out this
scheme. The band is to be announced
soon, according to Miss Heitsch.
Tickets for the affair will be put on
sale at the beginning of the second
All members of the central com-
mittee are associated with the As-

Mary Karpinski To Spend
Vacation Bicycling In
England And France
Among the various vacation trips
planned for this summer, one of the
most interesting is that anticipated
by Mary Karpinski, '28. Miss Kar-
pinski will bicycle through England
and France with a group of graduate
students and teachers under the
charge of John C. Dengler, Jr., di-
rector of the Student's International
The tour is part of an international
project which has for its object the
promotion of peace and good will
among the youth of the various coun-
tries. Every summer separate groups
of high school pupils, college stu-
dents and young teachers travel by
bicycle, bus and faltboot, a sort of
collapsible sailboat, through France,
Germany, Austria, England and
Scandinavia. The trips are plan-
ned as economically as possible.
Students travel third class on ship-
board and stop over night at the
youth hotels, which are placed at
convenient intervals along the route.
Opportunities are provided to become
acquainted sufficiently with the for-
eign languages to converse with the
natives. Miss Karpinski will teach
French on her tour this summer.
Miss Karpinski will sail on the
steamer Franconia June 2 from New
York. Included in the itinerary
are such places of universal interest
as Kenilworth, home of Sir Walter
Scott, Stratford-on-Avon, Stone-
henge, England, and Brittany and
the castle country of the Loire in
France. The trip will occupy 10

Bements And Moores Give
Dinner Parties Before
By BETSEY ANDERSON
More than 100 couples danced to
the strains of Bob Steinle's Union
Band last night in the Union Ball-
room at the third Faculty-Alumni
Dance sponsored by the Faculty
Among those noted in the gay as-
semblage were Mrs. Benjamin W.
Wheeler, who was charming in a
gown of black net with ruffles, and
Mrs. Walter B. Rea, who selected
Mrs. Donal H. Haines proved most
appealing in flame chiffon, accen-
tuated with flowers of the same color
worn at the shoulder. Mrs. John F.
Huber was lovely in a" white dress
and white tiera. Prof. George R.
Moore, research associate in the Uni-
versity Elementary School, and Mrs.
Moore were prominent among the
dancers, with Mrs. Moore attractive.
in a sweeping gown of black velvet.
Professor and Mrs. Moore gave a
dinner party before the dance, as did
Dr. and Mrs. Newton S. Bement.
Mrs. Walter V. Marshall seemed to
be among the most popular faculty
wives of the evening. Flowered crepe
was chosen by Mrs. Ivan H. Walton,
while Mrs. C. A. Bradley, Jr., wore
a green crepe frock with gold clips.
A gold hair ornament in the style
which appears destined for a cer-
tain and well-deserved popularity set
off the entire ensemble to good effect.
Also at the dance were Dean Clare
E. Griffin of the School of Business
Administration, and Mrs. Griffin;
Prof. James K. Pollock of the political
science department, and Mrs. Pollock;
Prof. Charles L. Jamison of the School
of Business Administration, and Mrs.
Jamison; and Prof. Floyd A. Fire-
stone of the physics department, and
Others who aided in proving that
adults are just as capable as the stu-
dent body at showing to advantage
in the Union Ballroom were Prof.
Lawrence Preuss of the political sci-
ence department, and Mrs. Preuss;
the Rev. Harold P. Marley, pastor
of the Unitarjan Church, and Mrs.
Marley; and Prof. Henry M. Kendall
of the geography department, and
I St. Valentine Gowns Are
Most Beautiful Of Year
In Style And Cut
By RUTH SAUER
Formals are a subject of much dis-
cussion these days when all the girls
are thinking about their attire for
that night of nights when the juniors
give their party of the year. St.
Valentine will add a touch of ro-
mance to the event. In case you are
still undecided about what to wear,
just go browsing in the shops about
town for an inspiration. They are
now showing the most beautiful
gowns of the season.
Black iet formals are extremely
popular for mid-winter. Embroid-
ered with white designs or covered
with ruffles, they are ethereal and
very sophisticated. One is plain
black with a single ruffle around the
neck and around the bottom of the
ski-t. It has a little capelet trim-
med with black ruching. Others
that are very smart are trimmed
with white flowers, embroidered all
over the dress and jacket. One of
them has a plain black ruffle around
the skirt extending from the knees,
and a closely gathered ruffle around
the jacket. Another has ruching of
black and white for trimming. If
you have never worn a flattering
gown of black net, you must look at
them, for they are guaranteed to
make any girl feel like a princess.
Yellow Net Shown
A little lighter in color but no less
exquisite is a yellow net formal be-
ing shown in one of the stores. The
dress is plain, with a low neck and
a ruffle around the skirt. The jacket
is the most adorable one we have
seen. It is one solid mass of tiny
yellow ruffles and looks like some-
thing out of fairyland.
A more tailored
gown is of red nov-
elty crepe with a
halter neck. It is
-- gathered with a
/ rope of the same
material that has
two huge tassels on'
the end. They reach
all the way to the
floor and give a very
novel and sophisti-
\1 . In case you arej
interested in a com-
bination di n n e r
gown, cocktail gown'
and formal, you
must see some of(
the two- and three-
piece dresses of the
new "bengaline." It
isa tailored serge-
like silk material
that makes dresses
just as smart look-
ing as a tuxedo. One
trimming. Underneath is the for.
mal of plain black bengaline.
Exotic Chiffon Smart
Chiffon also makes exotic forma
gowns. A pale, ice-blue creation i
one that caught our eye. It is trim-
med with little "carioca" ruffles al
the way down the back, and it ha
a high neck, trimmed with a flounc
of the same mater-
ial. The formal ef-
fect is heightened
by a slit up the mid-f
dle of the back. An-
other gown is of a
raspberry shade, cut
along Grecian lines,
trimmed with braid
in front and has two (
long floating panels, a+,.
Lace gowns are al-
so being shown now.
They are practical
as well as attrac-
tive, for they can be
worn later in the
spring. Bright col-
ored laces interwov-
en with gold and
silver threads, are
beautiful with dark
velvet skirts. An at-
tractive light blue
gown that we saw
had a jacket to '
match, with a full peplum around
At the conclusion of our shopping
tour, the only thing we can suggest
is that every girl interested in a new
formal or dinner dress take a look
at the treasure chest of gowns be-
ing shown now in our local shops.
The last in a series of six luncheon
meetings for freshmen women being
given under the sponsorship of Wyv-
ern, junior honorary society, will be
held at noon today in the north-
east alcove of the League Grill Room.
This meeting is being held espe-
cially for non-affiliated women. The
Assembly and activities pertaining
to them in particular will be dis-
cussed. Gretchen Lehmann and Mary
Andrew are in charge of the meeting.
The purpose of these meetings is
to acquaint freshmen women with
the different fields of activities they
will be able to enter at the beginning
of the second semester and to enable
them to decide which ones they are
especially interested in.
The other five meetings included
discussions of the class projects cover-
ing the Freshman Project, the Soph-
omore Cabaret and the Junior Girls
Play; publications; the merit system;
the social and house reception com-
mittees of the League; the theatre
arts committee which includes the

O. K. ON MIDNIGHT BLUE
Midnight blue will be the predomi-
nant color in both tuxedos and full
dress suits at the J-Hop this year.
The distinguishing feature of this
shade is that it appears blacker than
