Musical Notes Add Charm To Sailor

Especially attractive with sport clothes is this pert white breton
sailor. A shallow appearance is given to the erown of the hat by folding
its sides just far enough to leave only the top showing. The pattern
en the band around the crown is unusual, consisting of a white musical
bar and notes on a black background. The band encircling the edge is
also black.

Scholarship, Ability To Be
Leader Considered By
Campus Organizations
Why is a B.M.O.C.?
When innocent young freshmen
enter this University, and observe up-
perclassmen who are commonly
known as "big shots" the first question
they ask is "how did they get that
way?" Here is the answer.
The two freshman organizations of-
fering opportunities to become promi-
nent on campus are Alpha Lambda
Delta for women and Phi Eta Sigma
for men. Both chose their members
on the basis of good scholarship that
is at least half "A's" and half "B's"
the first semester. Alpha Lambda
Delta was founded at the University
of Illinois and a chapter was or-
ganized March 24, 1928, on this cam-
pus. Miss Alice Lloyd, dean of women
is now faculty adviser.
Sophomores Work For Honors
The sonhomore year is spent mainly
in striving to perform accomplish-
ments necessary for membership in
junior organizations. Wyvern, junior
honorary society for women, is based
on scholarship and activity. It was
founded 15 years ago under the super-
vision of Mrs. Frederick P. Jordan,
dean of women. New members are
now taken in once each spring on
"tapping night." On this occasion, ai
group of active members goes to the1
rooms of eight to twelve sophomores
after 10:30 p.m. to tell them they have
been chosen to join the ranks of
Wyvern. The occasion is followed by
attendance at a spread given by the
faculty adviser.
The junior men have an opportunity
of joining "Sphinx," which bases its
membership on leading positions and
prospective high senior positions. Ti e
club promotes Michigan spirit by
helping out at pen mcetilgs, selling
tags, aiding with the flood relief and
entertaining football mana ;crs dur-
ing the football season.
Members Selected In May
Members are chosen early in May
frcm the sophomore class. They are
visited at night by a committee and
are rolled out of bed. The following
day they are tied to a board, placed
in a wagon and driven all over Ann
Senior students have an opportunity
to gain recognitioan in seven different
societies. Mortarboard, a senior honr

orary society for women, chooses its
members on the basis of scholarship,
leadership and service. The organi-
zation was first founded in 1918 at
Syracuse, N. Y., by members of exist-
ing senior honorary societies, from
four local chapters at Michigan, Cor-
nell, Ohio State and Swarthmore.
Senior Society, for women, is or-'
ganized for the purpose of stimulating
scholarship and social activities in
independent women. This national
society was founded in 1906 by nine
charter members. It has been in-
strumental in founding the League
Assembly, and awards a $50 scholar-
ship to one outstanding sophomore.
Two scholastic organizations open
to both juniors and seniors are Phi
Kappa Phi and Phi Beta Kappa. The
latter, a national society, was or-
ganized in 1776 at the College of
William and Mary at Williamsburg,
Va. It was the first "Greek-letter"
The medal, or key, of the society
bears the motto translated as "love of
wisdom the helmsman of life." Dr.
Oram Butler, secretary of the local
Alpha chapter of the organization
founded in this city in 1907, stated
the following purpose for the group:
"The object of the Phi Beta Kappa
society is the promotion of scholar-
ship and of friendship among students
and graduates of American colleges."
Seniors must have a minimum scho-
lastic average of 2.5 and juniors an
average of 2.8 in addition to hour
requirements, to be eligible.
Graduates must be candidates for a
degree higher than Master's, must
come from a college in which there
is no chapter of Phi Beta Kappa
and must have the equivalent of at
least :36 hours in residence. Not
more khan one-tenth of those hours
may be a "B" grade, the rest being
required "A" grades.

Railway Express can handle laundry
packages for you very easily and
economically. Simply notify the folks
that you ate shipping your laundry
by Railway Express and ask them to
return it the same way. If you wish,
you can ship "collect." It saves time
and detail, and loose change.
Railway Express is fast and depend-
able and can be relied upon to get
your laundry back as fresh and in as
good condition as when it left home.
So think the idea over and telephone
Railway Express. Our motor truck
will pick up the package at your door
'at no extra charge.
