Final Tryouts For J.G.P.
Are Scheduled For Today





This afternoon at 2 p.m. excitement is breaking forth in the guise
of a winter sports party, and incidentally, it doesn't include tobogganing and
skiing, but a kidnaping, and all amateur detectives will be welcome . . . Clues
will be left in hopes that a rescuing can take place ... Snow games and last
but not least, refreshments will be in effect during the course of the after-
roon . . . Outdoor Sports Manager Mabel Allison can supply any additional
information . .. And reports of the party held on the last Saturday sound
most intriguing and show why winter is getting more and more popular as
it wears on, even in spite of frozen ears, fingers and the like . . . On occa-
sxons such as this, you really find the cold walk to and from the W.A.A.
building definitely worth the struggle .. .
And speaking of outdoor sports, there is a meeting at 10 a.m. at the
Union for anyone interested in forming an Ann Arbor Ski Club . . . Mr.
Roger Piersol will be in charge and students, faculty and townspeople are
urged to come ... There will be some discussion of a ski meet to be held
in the Arboretum the following Saturday at which ribbons will be awarded
to the winners of the three class divisions and exhibition skiing will take place
and there's a rumor that some jumping will occur although it has not been
verified as yet . .. Here's a good practical use for some of the ski suits that
have been in evidence on campus lately . . .
And Winter HangsOn . ..
March 7 the W.A.A. is sponsoring a winter sports house party at White
Lodge (for you who are not better informed it's near Pinckney) . . . They
will leave here Saturday afternoon, have dinner and breakfast there and
return late Sunday morning . . . Outside of a small fee for transportation
there will be no charge . ..gPapers have been placed on the bulletin boards
at Barbour Gym and at the W.A.A. building and the first eighteen to sign
up will go . . Line forms on the left, please, and no crowding, ladies . . .
And we've a new Women's Swimming Manager to introduce to you in
Mary Montgomery's place, Miss Mabel Howard of Betsy Barbour . . . Stand
up and take your bow, Mabel . . . And she's got plenty on her hands what
with both the National Telegraphic and the Intramural Swimming Meets
occurring at 7:30 p.m. on March 19 in the Union Pool . . . To enter either,
one must be timed previous-to the meet, and to prevent everyone arriving at
the last minute, notices have been sent out to the different houses and dorm-
itories to appear on a certain week at one of the following times,.5:30 p.m.
Tuesday and Thursday, 9-11 a.m. Monday, 8-11 a.m. Wednesday, 9:30-11
a.m. Friday, and 8:30-11 a.m. Saturday.. . The houses this week are Martha
Cook, Chi Omega, Sorosis, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Betsy Barbour, Adelia
Cheever, Mosher, and Zones 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 . . . Being ignorant of such af-
fairs as telegraphic meets, we inquired around and got the following results
. ..It is a meet in which universities all over the country are entered and
they send the results from intramural meets at their separate schools in to.
the headquarters and results are compared and the winners announced by
telegraph to the schools.
We found the Club Basketball enthusiasts starting out in full swing . . .
Barbara Kanouse, Billie Andrus, Elizabeth White, Betty Lyon, Helen Harp
and Mary Redden were out on the floor catching upon on lost time during
finals . . . Virginia Donahue, Martha Tillman, Virginia Bonning, Ann
Schinman, Elinor Bale, Norma Curtis, Sally Kenny, Edith Hooker, Mary
Pfluger, Blanche Finkbeiner and Janet Allington were also very much in evi-
dence during the free practice period . . . Extra incentive was added by the
prospect of the intercollegiate meet at Battle Creek today. Janet Allington,
manager, has announced that it is still not too late for new girls to come out
for basketball - - -
Watch The Board. . .
Anyone who wants to know what is going on in sports should look at the
tricky bulletins posted in Barbour Gym and the W.A,B.. . . You can't help
but get interested in at least one of the many exciting activities . . . If you
are a bit slow on your feet, try a little rifle practice . . . Or if your eye isn't
so good, go down to the Coliseum and try your luck on ice skates . . .
The equipment for ice hockey is furnished and admission is free .. .
And don't forget the heart and lung recheck that is necessary before partici-
pation in any sport . . .
An intercollegiate rifle meet is going into effect . . . Betty Robertson
is in charge and the following schedule has been announced. . . The week of
Feb. 21, Michigan will compete against the University of South Dakota, the
University of California, the University of Missouri, the University of Ken-
tucky and Coe College, the following week against Louisiana State, the Uni-
versity of Maryland, Drexel Institute, the University of Washington, the

pendent teams under the management of Sally Kennedy, three enthusiastic
Delta Zeta teams, Alpha Phi, Alpha Epsilon Iota, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa
Kappa Gamma and Mosher-Jordan have entered . . . Three leagues will

There is much excitement in the campus badminton circles in the person
of the Scottisb. badminton champion, Mr. Kenneth Davidson, who will lecture
and demonstrate at 4:30 p.m. Monday in Barbour . . . The beginners' tour-

iament got off to a fine start yesterday . . . Among the names, we noticed

Skulls And Skeletons Grin
At Medical Dance Guests
Ferom Union Walls
Ghoulish skulls, grinning skeletons
and a general morbid overtone of
death were emphasized in decorations
for the third annual Caduceus dance
which greeted more than 300 couples
who attended the function in the
Union Ballroom.
From the title: "Der Totentanz"-
the Dance of Death, which hung over
the stairway giving access to the Ball-
room, to the seven-foot skull glaring
down from above the solemn, black-
robed orchestra, the entire scheme of
decorations was a grim reminder of
the constant opponent of the medical
Gruesome Decorations
For the past three years the dec-
orations of the annual dance given
by the Senior Class of the Medical
School for the students and faculty
of that school and members of the
profession have been unique in their
line, being carried out by means of
the gruesome mingling of humor and
horror in the pictures.
On the prosceniumon either side
of the orchestra robed and cowled
skeletons played a silent accompani-
ment for the "Totentanz," while
perched on the mantelpiece at the
north end of the Ballroom an actual
skeleton waggishly shook his finger at
the dancers below.
'Time Marches On'
Next to the proscenium, on the
west wall, a skeleton on stilts stalked
across the pages of history, leaving a
bloody trail behind him: "Time
Marches On!" Above the north fire-
place was a poster repeated from last
year, depicting a surgical maneuver,
while above it was displayed the "Ob"
or obstetrical call, bugaboo of the
leisure-loving medico.
More posters, on the east wall,
showed a scythe sweeping in a "har-
vest" of skulls, a cowled skeleton
looking in on an autopsy, and two
symbolical paintings entitled "Death
Takes a Holiday" and "Say When!"
Decorations in the ballroom itself
were completed by a large silver and
black caduceus, the symbol of the
medical profession, which consists of
Meicury's winged rod with two snakes
entwined about it, at the south end,
and another poster, "Rainbow's End,"
at the left of the proscenium.
'Michigan's Unbeatables'
A more humorous note was struck
in the hall leading to the dance floor,
where was hung a large portrait of
"Michigan's Unbeatables," twelve
members of the Medical School fac-
ulty drawn up in football formation,
(waterboy included,) with the follow-
ing legend below:
"They haven't been scored on yet!
"For four years the present Senior
Class has been unable to pick any
holes to slip through this defense.
"We believe that this team has
the strength, weight, and craftiness
to whip any Mid-western aggregation.
Are at their best in a dry field, al-
though we feel they are equally good
In the painting several outstanding
characters of the Medical School
could easily be identified. Among
them were Dean Albert C. Fursten-
berg at left halfback, cracking the
whip over his line; Dr. Carl V. Weller
at right half, armed with a scythe
and rule book; and Dr. Charles W.
Edmunds, cradling in his arms a sub-
machine gun.
The painting, according to the sig-
nature, was executed by E. Shrdlu,
probably the notorious Etaoin Shrdlu
who has frequently appeared in
newspaper accounts in the past.

of 600 dancers.
The macabre motif of the decora-
tive scheme was nullified by the va-
riety of color and attractiveness of
the gowns worn.
Helen MacDonald, Detroit, with
John MacNeal, '36M., the publicity
chairman was seen in a blue velvet
gown, studded with rhinestones.
Elizabeth Davis, Ann Arbor, who
attended with Douglas S. MacIntyre
'36M, wore a deep blue crepe formal,
cut along simple lines. Miss Davis
wore gold sandals and crystal ac-
cessories. Mrs. George B. Higley was
seen in an unusual green taffeta for-
mal with tight bodice, full skirt and
high neck trimmed with a tailored
bow and gold nailheads.
Irene Summerfield, the guest of
John Bunting, '36M, appeared in a
white satin formal which featured a
train and three large red roses at the
waistline. Elizabeth Bell, '36, who
with Charles Knerler, '36, was seen in
a striking crepe formal of dark bril-
liant blue. The color was set off by
rhinestone clips at the shoulders and
a matching rhinestone buckle. Flor-
ence Harper, '36, was seen dancing
with James Cook, '39M. Miss Harper
wore an attractive silk crepe formal
in light green with high neck and cap
sleeves. A lovely white brocaded for-
mal, with a low neckline and full
skirt was worn by Jean Neson, '36.
Hazel Hanlon was also seen on the
dance floor.
