This is an excellent opportunity to remind you of the swimming meet
that will be held at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday at the Union pool ... With Sir
Walter Scott, we'll say, "Come one, come all" . . Anyhow, everyone's in-
vited ... -
Thursday night at the Union Pool, we saw Elinor Bale, lame from the
afternoon's basketball game, do a pretty good job of the 25-yard free-style
As did Jane MacDonald from Betsy Barbour and Betty Hopkins from'
Kappa Kappa Gamma . .. Manager Sally Kenny saw fit to time her breast-
stroke for the 25-yard event . . . Here's the very latest on the number of
girls from the various houses . . . Martha Cook and Kappa Gamma are inj
the lead with nine girls each . . . Chi Omega is next with eight ... Alpha
Phi and Zone III each have seven ... Both Mosher and Betsy Barbour have
four ... while Jordan, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Zone VI each have two ...
Alumnae House, Alpha Sigma Phi, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Phi
Sigma Sigma, and Zones V and VIII have one representative each .-.
All out for the Ann Arbor tournament! That's the slogan on the bad-
minton courts these days . . . According to Miss Hilda Burr, it will be good
practice in competitive playing for everyone, beginners or advanced . .. And
who can tell, beginners, you may surprise yourselves and win a game or two
... The tournament will start March 30 and will last for a week ... Besides
men's and women's singles, there will be men's and women's doubles and
mixed doubles ... So everyone will have a chance to show his talent ... All

League Ballroom Scene
Of Grand March Led
By Miss HeitschI
More than 300 coupies danced to
the music of Johnny Hamp's na-
ticonally known band last night in
the colorfully decorated Leagueball-
i oom at the Assembly Ball. The af-
fair was the second annual dance
ever given by independent women.
Leading the Grand March with
Evans Morton, '34E, Mary Ellen
Heitsch, '37, general chairman of the
:all, looked particularly attractive in
a delphinium blue crepe, its soft col-
or contrasted by a pale pink sash.
With it she wore a jacket of match-
ing blue, and silver accessories. Fol-
lowing her in the line of march were
Josephine Montee, '38, and Kenneth
Bright Colors Predominate
Miss Montee appeared in a striking
flowered print featuring a short train,
bright flowers at the neck and tail-
ored lapels. Barbara Schacht, '37,
attending with Robert Crawford,
wore white pleated crepe, accented
by a scarlet flower.

Delta Zeta entertained at a rushing
tea from 4 to 6 p.m. yesterday at the
home of Adele Gardner at the Forest
Plaza. Spring flowers furnished the
keynote of the decorations.
And the first round of the mixed doubles tournament went off Wednesday
evening with no untoward incidents . . . Not even a fainting spectator . .
As to particulars, Rodger Longley and Helen Strain defeated Alex Hudson
and Helen McLane, 15-10 and 15-11 . . . While Eustace Fox and Dorothy
Lyndon were victors over Bob Wilkins and Margot Goodrich by a score of
15-8 and 15-9. Harry Kasabach and Gwen Bryce overwhelmed John Kitchen
and Marguerite McQuillan, 15-3 and 15-4 . . . And, in the final game, Jerry
McCarthy and Louise Paine defeated Ernie Johnson and Phyllis Carey,
15-4 and 15-9 . . . The next round is to be played Wednesday evening and
the rest on succeeding Wednesdays . . .
In the beginners' tournament this week, Doris Puls and Jeanette Ny-
boer eked out a victory over M. J. Moran and Carol Schafer, the score be-
ing 12-15, 15-10 and 15-13 . . . And then went on to win by default over
Barbara Heath and Janet Mills . . . And that is as far as it has gone in spite
of the entreaties of the manager, Helene Kipf, to finish the games before
the rush of mid-semesters, horrid thought! . . . And even former games have
been played in the doubles . . -In the contest between Carolyn Woodford
and M. J. Mueller, and Helene Kipf and Floydene Beardslee, the first team
won ... Also in the first round, Jean-Christy Groh and Louise Paine defeat-
,d Mary and Fran Redden, 15-4 and 15-8 . . . And then this team took
Jane Hardy and Betsey O'Dell, who had drawn a bye in the first round, by
the score of 15-4, 15-1 . . . And incidently, the hours for playing games and
for practice have been changed . . . The new ones are posted on the bulletin
board in Barbour as usual . . .
"Time," "en guarde," and the beginner's fencing class goes into action
Watching from a discreet distance, we tried to figure what it was allj
about but we couldn't even recognize anyone, what with the masks and
guards that everyone had donned .. . However we recognized the voice bit-
terly complaining that she couldn't guard herself as that of Alice Stebbins
Miss Hartwig took her in hand and it was not time at all before she
was lunging with the best ....Eleanor French seemed to be winning all her
bouts (we privately think it was due to the red heart she was wearing on her
chest guard) and Kay Choate was crying "touch&" in a triumphant manner
as we passed . . . Madeleine Krieghoff illustrated the fact that this is one
fight where you don't have to take your glasses off to join in the fray . .
Virginia Mulhollandl and Betty Randal seemed very earnest about the1
whole matter and parried back and forth calmly as Lucile Vander Velde,
standing next to them, glared grimly at her opponent ...
Down to the Rifle Gallery at the W.A.A. building Thursday and learned
the results of last week's Telegraphic Meet . . . Carnegie Tech and Ripon led
with scores of 498 and 490 respectively while Michigan came in third with a
score of 489 . . . Girls contributing to this were Francees O'Dell with the
perfect score of 100, Eileen Lay with 99, Betty Robertson with a 99, Dorothy
Williams with a 97, and Laura Brilliantine with a 94 . . . Betty Robertson
and Frances O'Dell had already shot for next week and both had 100's ...
Wednesday, Miss Virginia Peaseley directed the shooting and Fannie Wilder,
Betty Wagner, Charlotte Meredith and Betty Howard did their best to shoot
And have you noticed the "spring" appearance of the bulletin boards ...
Daisies and evervthing. Rumors have it that "Pete" Hartwig is responsible

While their husbands are busy
delving into the realms of knowledge
in stuffy libraries, the 125 members
of the Michigan Dames are having a
gay time playing bridge and studying
For the Michigan Dames are wives
of University students and internes,
and since 1921, they have been or-
ganized in a society which combines
education and social activity. Mrs.
W. L. Hindman, president of the so-
ciety, in a recent interview, explained
the purpose of the organization and
qualifications for membership.
Originated As Social Club
It commenced primarily as a social
club, but it has since become some-1
thing of an educational organization
as well, sponsoring prominent speak-
ers who give lectures on current
events. The Michigan Dames Society
is divided into twe distinct groups, ac-
tive and associate members. Any
woman whose husband is taking work
in any school on the campus is eli-
gible for active membership, while all
Dames may become associate mem-
bers after their husbands have ceased
to be students.
