Overflow Dance ..

Committee Abandons Idea
Of Additional Party, To
Have Been Given
The Overflow Dance fornSenior
Ball which was to e held on June
19 will not be given, according to Tor
Nordenson, general chairman.
The central committee considered
giving a dance in the League ballroom
with the sale of tickets to be open to
all classes, in addition to the one be-
ing held in the Rainbow Room of the
Union, because of the large number of
students who wished to attend. How-
ever, the number was not large
enough to warrant taking such a
Plans for the Senior Ball have been
completed, according to Nordenson
who will attend with Jean Lynch of
Auburn, New York. Benjamin Char-
in, music chairman, will escort Ruth
Craft ,'37. Others of the central com-
mittee who are attending are Larry
David, '36, ticket chairman, who is
taking Mary Katherine Andrus, '37,
and Philip Ordway, '36, programs
chairman, who is attending with
Martha Steen, '36. Helen Rankin,
'36, chairman of decorations will go
with Thomas Griffin of Pontiac.
The dance, which will be a spring
formal according to the custom fol-
lowed at this annual affair, will be
the last big event before graduation.
It is to be held the night before com-
mencement and is the last celebra-
tion of the senior class.
Ted Weems and his band are fur-
nishing the music for the affair. Elmo
Tanner will supply added entertain-
ment in the line of whistling. He is
known for his ability in presentation
of novelty numbers. Weems has
done most of his playing in the mid-
dlewest on the radio and, as a dance
band, mainly in Chicago. He played
at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Ar-
bor last winter.
Decorations for the ball will be
carried out in the college colors, ac-
cording to Miss Rankin. Blue and
gold drapes with a large '36 at the
top-will be draped over the orchestra
In 1931 an overflow dance was held
in the League Ballroom. The or-
iginally hired orchestra, Tal Henry
and his North Carolinians, played in
the Unior Ballroom, and the Union
Orchestra played for the overflow in
the League Ballroom. In 1934 an
effort was made to limit the dance
to senior members only. Last year
the tickets sold so rapidly that the
sale was not thrown open to any but
the senior class. Kay Kaiser and
his orchestra furnished the music.

sional journalism fraternity, at its
annual spring initiation last night in
the Union inducted 10 new members
into the organization.
The new members were Russell
Anderson, '36, Kenneth Chattres,

ald T. Smith, '38, and Tuure Tenand-
er, '38.

C. Spaller, both '38, were elected as
pledges to the organization.
At the meeting, Marshall D. Shul-
man, '37, president of the local chap-
ter, was elected a delegate to attend
Sigma Delta Chi's national conven-
tion, which will be held Nov. 13, 14
and 15 in Dallas, Texas.

nus Magazine should be turned in

as soon as possible, according to
Grace Snyder, '37.

Flat crowns and brims of Merry Widow proportions will be seen at all the smartest places this summer.
The model above, designed by Howard Hodge of white slit, cellulose film, has a wide Breton brim banded
with brown grosgrain ribbon.

Suminer Hats Feature Width
In.Brms And Simple Trimmning

White Pretlomiinales For
Sport, Eveig Wear-
T'] l s Popular
Brims on the new summer hats will
go high and wide this year.
Shading the smart miss from the
summer heat, dipped, broad or rolled
brims will be seen on the new hats,
and crowns will take a back seat to
E emphasize the breath-taking propor-
tions of the wide brims.
A white model is trimmed with a
simple ribbon band, but more elabor-
ate decorations, such as red and green
lacquer pepper, appear in front on a
brown straw hat. For garden party
wear, Milan has tightly curled pastel
tinted ostrich tips, cupped back over
the edge of the rear brim.
White Hats For All Occasions
White hats may be worn on any
occasion from sports to dinner. Boy-
ish caps and mushroom hats are
made of pique and straw and may be
worn with sports suits. The evening
fashion in white seems to favor flow-
er toques.
June and July weather favors small
dark straws shaped like inverted
flower baskets. These are trimmed
smartly with bright clusters of flow-
ers, and are worn tipped at a rakish
angle over one eye.
An airy fabric, tulle, has been in-
troduced into the fashion of hats. Ita
is stitched very closely in various for-
mations, and added to hats without
brims, with narrow brims, or in tri-
corn shape. A bright nosegay placed
conspicuously on the brim or crown
completes the hat.
Fashion Favors Simplicity
Predominating in summer fashions

is simplicity. Decorations on hats
are limited to a minimum. The
smartest chapeaux are trimmed with
ribbon accents, a rakish quill, or a
flower touch.
Predictions are that Merry Widow{
hats will be seen at the smartest res-
taurants this summer. A white slit
cellulose film hat has a wide up-roll-
ing Breton brim, banded with brown
grosgrain ribbon, and is worn with a
brown crepe frock of green and white
In contrast to the simplicity of the
summer, the late summer and early
fall hats will feature a different
trend. Trimmings in great abun-
dance will be placed on all hats, and
recollections of the days of the ele-
gant eighties will be seen on the
women who desire smartness.

Sehool Offers
Opportunity To
(olII-eo'e omen
Experienoe with pre-kindergarten
children is being ofTered by the Mer-
rill-Palmer School, Detroit, to col-
lege graduates and to a few under-
graduates during the summer
An opportunity of this kind is val-
uable in helping the college woman
to find her interests and aptitudes
and in giving her a chance to at-
tain a greater knowledge of com-
munity social service, of actual prac-
tice in work and assuming responsi-
bility, and of experience which will
give theoretical college courses more
From previous cases it has been
found that college undergraduates
often have been mistaken in their
choice of a major course and that
this method has helped them find
their real life work. College grad-
uates are many times given employ-
ment in social agencies and insti-
tutions, such as the Department of
Public Welfare, after completing this
summer work.
All of those students interested in
this opportunity afforded by the Mer-
rill-Palmer School should get in
touch with Dean Alice C. Lloyd in
her office in Barbour Gymnasium.
