To Hold Special
At a featured meeting of their
year's program, to be held at 3 p.m.
Wednesday in the League, the Faculty
Women's Club will have as their
guests the Michigan Dames. At this
meeting of the club the various sec-
tions unite to present the entertain-
ment, which is to be given in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Contrary to the general rule of the
sections offering separate parts of the
entertainment such as musical or
dramatic features, the program this
year will take the form of an or-
iginal farce entitled "A Day In A
Radio Station" in which all sections
are to be united.
At the close of the program tea will
be served in the Ethel Fountain Hus-
sey Room and in the concourse, ac-
cording to Mrs. Walter F. Hunt, who
is in charge of the tea arrangements.
Mrs. Edward L. Adams, president of
the Faculty Women's Club and Mrs.
Lewis Haines, president of the Michi-
gan Dames will receive.
An exhibit hung in the lobby and
corridors of the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre will be presented by the art
section of the club, according to Mrs.
Benjamin Bailey, who is in charge of
the exhibit, which will be presented
from Tuesday morning through
Mrs. S. T. Dana, and Mrs. R. A.
Smith will pour at the table in the
Ethel Fountain Hussey Room and
Mrs. J. L. Brumm and Mrs. B. F.
Bailey will serve in the concourse.
