Panhellenic Ball
Heads Chosen
By Betty King
First Meeting Of Group
Chairmen Will Be Held
Tomorrow At League
Tickets To Sell Soon
Is Planned For Last Week
In November; Popular
Orchestra ToPlay
Chairmen of the central committee
for the annual Panhellenic Ball to be
held Nov. 27 in the League ballroom
were announced yesterday by Betty
King, '37, general chairman.
The heads of the various commit-
tees of the ball will hold their first
meeting at 5 p.m. tomorrow in the
League. The principal problem for
discussion will be the choice of an
orchestra for the affair, Miss King
The chairmen are Katherine Loom-
is, '38, Alpha Phi, music committee;
Betty Ronal, '38, Kappa Alpha Theta,
ticket committee and Betty Whitney,
S'38, Collegiate Sorosis, publicity com-
Also Dorothy Shutt, '37, Alpha Chi
Omega, chaperone committee and
Priscilla Smith, '38, Pi Beta Phi, floor
committee, Ruth Friedman, '38, Al-
pha Epsilon Phi, will be head of the
committee on decorations and favors.
Tickets for the ball will go on sale
about Nov. 10, according to Miss King.
The traditional dance given by
sorority women, the ball usually takes
place sometime in the last week in
November, Miss King explained. It
marks the one time in the year when
the women can, with propriety, invite
the men and treat them to an eve-
ning's entertainment, she said.
Last year the ball, under the gen-
eral chairmanship of Mrs. George
Lawton (Sue Thomas), was termed an
"outstanding success" by all who at-
tended. Similar affairs in the past
have attracted about 400 couples to
the League ballroom, Miss King said.
Emerson Gill and his radio band,
with Marion Mann, novelty singer,
furnished the music for the ball last
year. It has been planned to procure
some equally well known orchestra,
Miss King said. No plans have yet
been made for decorations, according
to Mrs. Freidman.

of the Michigan Alumnae Club will

and the wife of Senator Vandenberg,
is returning to Ann Arbor, and will be
speaker at the meeting.
She will be honored at a luncheon
given by the executive board of the
club before the meeting, and also at
a tea following the meeting. Mrs.

the council of the club, will tell
something of the life in Washington
as she has come to know it as a Sen-
ator's wife.
Women who are eligible to join the
club may attend the meeting Friday,
as Mrs. Harold Trosper, chairman of
the membership committee, plans to
enroll new members at that time.
Those who have attended the Uni-

The alphabet today should be even
more important to you than it was
when you were of kindergarten age.
Not because of any academic signifi-
cance, however, but because A-B-C's
are the coming thing in costume

appearing everywhere to point up
both sport and afternoon ensembles.
For tweed suits, one manufacturer
has put out a simple, classic mono-
gram with a satin finish, enclosed in
an enamel or tortoise shell frame.
But why stop with a tortoise shell
frame? Letters themselves come in'
this distinctive new material, and
translucent amber initials would
create unique contrast on a black
cashmere sweater.
Still more informal are the dangle
pin and "barrel" initials. Consist-

ed group," Professor McClusky said.
He pointed out that only 133 out of
every 1,000 who attend fifth grade
ever get to college, and he further
stated that of that 133, only 52 grad-
uate from college. "You are a se-
lected group but the process of selec-
tion is going on," he said.
As valuable aids in helping the
freshmen in their educational en-
vironment, he cited the scientific at-
titudes and methods, progressive
reading habits, a sense of intellectual
adventure, the ability to express one-
selg, both orally and in more formal
writing, and the ability to get along
well with other people.
Miss Lloyd opened her talk with
the statement, "Your college years
are your years of leisure. Even your
studying represents your freedom
from the task of earning your living.,
What you do with, your free' time
shows what kind of a person you are."
She emphasized recreational read-
ing, good music and the various cul-
tural opportunities which are offered
in Ann Arbor as being the greatest
help toward getting the most out of
a college career.

ride at 5 p.m. tomorrow according
