"Oz U," a humorous fantasy, wil

The pageant will be divided int
college episodes taking place in th
Land of Oz, famous fairy tale coun-
try. Standardized campus types wil
be recognized in the characters o
"The Land of Oz." Such characters
are the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow
Professor Ogglebug, and the Saw-
Dialogue, dancing, and music will
comprise the pageant. The enter-
tainment committee headed by Mary
Rall is writing "Oz U'" and plans to
have it completed Sunday.
Casting will start next week under
the supervision of Sally Peire, Grad.,
and all freshman girls are urged to
try out. The project of this year is
very different from those of the past
and strikes a new note in originality.
The pageant, "Oz U," will be given
in conjunction with Lantern night
on June 1. Nothing of this type has
been given on campus since the
Freshman Project of 1932 when the
theme of the pageant was "The His-
tory of Music." This displayed the
progress of music interpretation
through the ages, as typified by
dances beginning with the primitive
through the colorful middle ages tol
The pageant will be given in a na-
tur al amphitheatre on Palmer Field
near the Observatory where trees and
shrubbry will form the background. It
will be presented at nightfall immed-
iately preceding the Lantern Night
Froshr Project oiers the first chance
for first year women to participate in
campus activities. This year's pro-
ject has been planned so that the
greatest number of Freshman women
possible will be able to take part.

Presiding over the tea table in the
dining room was Jane O'Ferrall, look-
ing springlike in navy blue accented
in white. Margaret Guest in brown,
was also pouring as were Marjorie
Mackintosh and Kate Landrum.
Strolling around the room were
Priscilla Smith in navy trimmed in
lighter blue, and Harriet Heath, who
was wearing a becoming rust knit
suit. Miss Heath, as chairman of the
League social committee, was in
charge of the affair.
A soft aquamarine shade effectively
contrasted with the blonde hair of
Priscilla Abbot, and Jean Keinath
looked smart in a tailored suit. An
unusual and lovely shade of yellow
was the choice of Jean MacGregor.
Mary Jane Mueller wore another of
the popular knit suits, in turquoise.
Receiving guests in the living room
was Mrs. Ruthven, looking charming
in a spring print. Helen Owston, in
navy and grey, was seen chatting
with Mary Louise Willoughby in a

Store Ixxccitives Speak
By MARGARET HAMILTON
P'raps you'd better go no further,
if it's department stores you're in-
terested in, for your college degree
n will be held against you.
f So ran the consensus of opinion of
a number of Detroit department store
executives, speaking under the aus-
opices of the vocational bureau of the
University. Three short speeches
were given on personnel work, ex-
f ecutive positions, fashion and style
But the first statement should be
qualified, for although it can't be
cdenied that your college training is
going to help you in getting the job,
nevertheless, it will be much harder
jfor the girl with a college back-
ground to fit in easily with the other
employees of a large (epartment
store, for they will resent immediate-
ly any sign which might make them
think that the college trained girl
thinks herself superior. Because of
this, college people have to be ex-
ceptionally well adjusted and able
to get along with all sorts and types
All three of the speakers stressed
the fact that personnel, executive;
and style work in the large depart-
ment stores is still in its pioneer
stages, and for that reason, any
woman thinking seriously of enter-1
ing these fields, needs, in addition to
the specialized requirements in edu-
cation, a natural liking for people of
many types, the ability to get the<
other person's point of view, and toc
inspire confidence in her associates,
and an enthusiasm for her work
which quality cannot be overempha-

to several weeks, but in addition,
('very large store has what it calls
on the ,ob training." This is nec-
essary in order that each of its em-
ployes keeps abreast of all the lat-
est developments in his particular
field of selling, personnel or even of
executive work. All of the best stores
in the country also have systems of
promotional training for those few
whom they think particularly well
adapted for executive work.
If a large enough group of women
from the University are interested
in the vocation of department store
work, it may be possible to arrange a
trip to one of the larger Detroit
stores. so that they can obtain first-
hand information about the various
lines of work in which they may be
interested. This trip, if carried out,
