Two representatives, to be activ
members of theAssembly board, wer

to a petition presented by Fnlorec
McConkey, '38A, president. The rep-
resentatives will be elected by th
new organization at a mass meeting
to be held in the near future, Miss
McConkey said, adding that about 8
women are in the group.

The other oficers of the Ann Ar-
bor Independent Women besides Miss
McConkey are Elizabeth Notley, '39
secretary, and Dorothy Novy, '38

Summers, '40, and Hilda VanTuyl,
A new insignia was introduced at
the meeting and was accepted by a
unanimous vote. Helen Jesperson,
'38, president of Assembly, praised
the idea and said the emblem would
appear on all future Assembly occa-
sions in the way of decorations and
on the programs, place cards and
leaflets of the organization. The in-
signia was chosen by the Assembly
representatives from a group of five
sketches which were designed by
Berta Knudson, '38A, and Miss Mc-
Conkey. The idea of the insignia
was introduced at the recent As-
sembly Ball where it furnished the
motif of decorations.
Executive Committee Planned
Joanne Kimmell, '38, was appoint-
ed to head a committee which will
make plans for an executive group,

adding that the petitions will be
made in the fall after the Assembly
house elections.

Universty Librar y
Offers Emily Post
A La 1781 V ersion
Any Michigan woman who wants
to brush up on the finer points of
etiquette can find valuable aid in
the general -library, where there are
16 books on etiquette for ladies and
more on related subjects. The
"Ladies' Hand-book and Manual of
Politeness" is addressed to "any of
the fair sex who deem it important
to become graceful in deportment
and attractive in manner as well as
intelligent and accomplished." It
offers advice on everything from
marriage to preservation and im-
provement of beauty.
Michigan women might also be
interested in the "Ladies' Friend,"
which claims to be a treatise on the
virtues and qualificatrions which are
the brightest ornaments of their fair
sex and render them most agreeable
to the sensible part of mankind. This
bdok, published in 1781, treats not
only the lighter things of life, such
as dress, diversions, love and gal-
lantry, but it deals also with studies
fit for women, and advises them "not
to meddle with abstract sciences and
weighty investigations. They may,
however, be allowed to improve their
intellects by a little study."
Graduates To Hear

Prof. John W. Riegel of the eco-
nomics department will be the

of Industrial Relations. Special em-
phasis will be given to recent events

are welcome at these meetings which
are held weekly.

Colorful Hats Top
New Spring Suits
In Giddy Manner
Cap the climax this spring with a
new bonnet. Suits were made espe-
cially' for the hats it seems, because
this spring's campus toppers are in-
The predominant style is called a
"roller," meaning that the small, soft
brim is rolled and then bounded with
a ribbon of matching or contrasting
shade. The crown is shallow, so that
the hat may rest lightly on the top
of the head. Instead of the usual
feather there are stitchings on the
side, which are called feather stitch-
ings. Don't worry about matching
you're outfit because this particular
style comes in 38 different shades.
There are also other equally at-
tractive styles with descriptive
names, such as the "up 'n up,' a small
off-the-face hat tied with a contrast-
ing ribbon which runs along the base
of the crown and along the peak of
the brim.
Just a word as to shades: the new-
est ones are as devastating as they
sound. Some are the new thistle, a
dull rose, which goes with anything,
a shade called red-earth, which is a
shade darker than british-tan, or
"sailor's aqua" a lovely pastel blue
So with all these intriguing new
styles and shades hold your head
