Speech To Be Unusual Yule Gifts

IFor This Christmas

Poise Lecture

Importance Voice P
To Be Explained To


By Prof. Densmore
Prof. Gail E. Densmore of the I
speech department is to give the last
in the series of "Poise and Personal-
ity" lectures at 4 p.m. today at thel
League. Professor Densmore will talk
on voices and personality, it was an-
nounced by Jean Hatfield, '37, chair-J
man of the League orientation com-
In his lecture Professor Densmore
will explain the part the voice plays
in a pleasing personality and how one
may make a favorable impression
through the voice. The lecture is
open and free of charge.
This will conclude the series which
has been sponsored by the orienta-
ion committee principally for the
Benefit of freshmen woman. Atten-
dance has not been compulsory and
all of the talks have been open to
the public.
This is the first lecture which has
not been sponsored by a local shop.
Such topics as hairdressing, make-
up, correct clothes for campus and
more formal occasions have been dis-
cussed, with the help of undergrad-
uate women who served a models.
The room in which the lecture to-
day is to be held will be posted on the
bulletin board near the League desk
according to Miss Hatfield.
Mrs. Waite Lands
'Individual' Homes
One's cottage should be comfort-
able, attractive, and possess indivi-
duality according to Mrs. John Waite
who gave the last in the series . of
interior decorating lectures at 4 p.m.
yesterday in the League.
Mrs. Waite stressed particularly
that the furniture of the cottage
should be simple and useful. She
favors built-in furniture because it
conserves space and can be put to
more uses.
To illustrate her lecture, the speak-
er showed several articles which she
herself had made to make her cot-
tage more livable. Among these was
a bed lamp and dresser lamp com-
bination made of a small bread pan
turned upside down.

I he Princess of Fashion steps up
with each new season ,flourishes her
magic wand, and, lo and behold! in-
triguing new styles appear. Her
royal highness has been thoughtful
beyond comparison in creating cold
weather protections for formal wear
in the approaching holiday time. So,
if you are in a quandry as to what
sort of a gift to give the girl "who
just has everything," Ann Arbor of-
fers several unusual suggestions.
For young gadabouts who trek
from party to party, there are car-
riage boots in styles to suit every
taste. They come in black velvet
with black fur-trimming, in white,
rubber with white fur-trimming, and,
for those less conventional individ-
uals, shoe stores are showing them
in colors.
Red is especially dashing against
the sparkling whiteness of the snow.
Besides being decorative and con-
forming to the shape of the ankle,
these boots keep feet and ankles
warm and comfortable. They come
with snap and zipper fasteners and
lace or wrapabout closing.
Then there are evening hoods
which cherish coiffures while en-
hancing the charms of the wearer.
These, likewise, come in black and
white as well as colors. The hood
doubles as a collar when not used
to cover the head.
Last, but certainly not of least
importance, are those fuzzy white
angora mittens whose little-girl de-
mureness, which may, at first, seem
ridiculous to many, is in striking con-
trast to the smooth sophistication of
the modern wrap.
Alpha Xi Delta announces the
pledging of Gladys W. Ward, '39, of
Nanking, China.

To End Fridayl
Early Reservations Urged
For Interfraternity Dance
By Committee HeadI
Ticket reservations for the Inter-
fraternity Ball, to be held Jan. 15,
may be made from 3 to 5 p.m. every
day this week at the Interfraternity
Council office in Room 304 in the
Union, according to Arthur Lundahl,
'38, co-chairman of the ticket com-
Because of the large advance de-
mand, Lundahl urges fraternities to
make their reservations before the
general sale of tickets immediately
after Christmas vacation. Tickets will
be sold at $2.50. Reservations may
also be made with committee mem-
As in other years, the tickets will
be sold exclusively to members of
fraternities and will be limited in
number to 300. Last year's ball had
a ticket sell-out three weeks in ad-
vance, George Cosper, '37, general
co-chairman of the ball stated.
Fletcher Henderson will provide
the music for the dance which will
be held in the Union ballroom. Hen-
derson, who has a colored band, also
arranges numbers for Benny Good-
man. His organization is considered
one of the finest colored bands of the
Middle West and has been featured
lately in Chicago.

Mitchell To Speak
At Luncheon Today
Prof. Elmer D. Mitchell of the
physical education department will
speak on the Olympic Games at the
last graduate luncheon before vaca-
tion to be held at noon today in the
Russian Tea Room of the League.
These meetings are held for the
purpose of giving the graduate stu-
dents an opportunity to become ac-
quainted with each other and with
the work in departments of the Univ-
ersity other than those in which
they are working. This is done by
having each week as guests faculty
members who talk informally on a
subject connected with their depart-
Those attending the meetings get
their lunches at the League cafe-
teria and carry the trays across the
hall to the Russian Tea Room where
the talks are given. About 35 stu-
dents usually attend the luncheons.
Women's Badminton
Tournament To Start
Women interested in the women's
singles badminton tournament may
sign up this week in Barbour Gym-
nasium, according to Betty Lyon, '39,
in charge of women's badminton. The
first round will be played off the first
week after vacation .
Tournaments with the Ann Arbor
Club, the Ypsilanti Club, and possibly
with Michigan State Normal School,
are being planned, Miss Tyon said.
A progressive tournament will take.
place at a guest night to be held some
Wednesday after the holidays. The
mixed group will meet a University
High School group the second or
third week in January.
