To Explain Plan
At Lecture Here
A precise explanation of social
science phenomena in terms of math-
ematics will be the subject of a
University lecture by Prof. Karl
Menger, Austrian mathematician, at
7:45 p.m. tomorrow in Room 304 of
the Union.
Research worker in mathematics,
Professor Menger, has been working
on an exact theory of sociological re.
lations. Under the title of "A Math-
ematical Theory of Human Rela-
tions," he will sketch his plans.
"I'm sure this lecture will be of in-
terest not only to economists and
other social science workers, but to
mathematicians and physical scien-
tists as well," Prof. Howard S. Ellis
of the economics departMent said.
Professor Menger was the son of
the famous economist'of the same
name, who, with Jevons and Walras,
is considered to be the founder of the j

to have found a Michigan man who
can outdo both Washington and Lin-

As usual the case is very chimer-

name. But it happened last week

Sigma Rho Tau's 'Cooley Cane'
Is Pirated Post, Brackett Asserts

- - - . w w w w w - W~ W w - -.


The "Cooley Cane," that symbol
of meritorious service to Sigma Rho
Tau, engineering speakers' club, is a
pirated post, according to Prof. Rob-
ert D. Brackett of the engineering
Professor Brackett explained that
many, many years ago a fence en-
closed the campus, in order to refuse
admission to the multifarious domes-
tic and wild life that infested Ann
Arbor in those days. The entrances
were masterpieces of engineering in-
genuity, consisting of two gate-posts
with cedar stakes placed in staggered
formation so that no cattle, other
than students, could enter, he said.
"Civilization Came"
But soon, according to the Sigma
Rho Tau director, "civilization came
to our city," and the University au-
thorities decided tohsell the fence to
a neighboring farmer, reasoning that
any spasmodic invasion by an oc-
casional runaway horse or stray bull
would not deeply disturb the serenity
of the campus.
The students, according to Profes-
sor Brackett, felt the loss of the fence
keenly, for it had been the line of
battle for many a class struggle, and
few if any of the ringleaders had
escaped the embarrasing accident of
being hung up by the tousers on a
paling. So they held a secret con-
clave. The errant fence was tracked,
and, as a natural result, the farmer
found himself minus one fence the
following morning.
Students Get Canes
About a month later, Professor
Brackett continued, students ap-
peared in Dean Cooley's class in the
engineering school with cedar canes,
beautifully turned, finished and pol-
ished, filling the room with all the
perfume of the cedars of Lebanon. A
deputation presented one of the canes
to Dean Cooley as a token of their
For many years Dean Cooley car-
ried this cane with him on his walks,
although, Professor Brackett reports,
there is no evidence to support the
belief that he ever used it as a dis-
ciplinary tool. So far as is known,

Dean Cooley's Cane is the only relic
of the old campus fence.
Now, the cane so hallowed by tra-
dition is awarded to the student who
has rendered the greatest service to
Sigma Rho Tau during his four years
on the campus. Universally known as
the "Cooley Cane," it is passed on
from year to year, being awarded to
the student chosen by the "Attic Ten,"
the supreme governing body of Sigma
Rho Tau, by the student who won
the award in the previous year.
Wednesday night, at the annual
banquet, Robert A. Lowe, '36E, of
Buffalo, last year's winner, will pre-
sent the Cooley Cane to a member of
the society who has earned recogni-
tion as this year's outstanding mem-
ber of sigma Rho Tau.

GET OUT and do things! Yes,
that's the motto of spring and in
Ann Arbor it's no trouble at all to
find those things to do - just
think, we have bicycling, canoeing,
roller-skating - if you're so in-
clined - and no end of amuse-
ments for the more serious ath-
letes. And it's in Ann Arbor that
you'll find the spirit too!
'BEEN THINKING about all
this lately and have been scouting
for the athletic costume for the
Michigan out-door girl - and
with a great deal of success. Yes,
I found the coolest kind of dresses
for the moderate exercise, in fact,
tennis or golf dresses, walking
dresses and cool non-wrinklable
class dresses (do we call that exer-
cise!). Spun linen is just about
t.he coolest this year and IS
wrinkle-proof - a feature that I
for one have been loking for for
years (centenarian??). Then there
are loads of seersuckers and linens
in the dark and light print com-
binations. You can easily see that
it's up to you to be just as sporty
in the classroom as on the tennis
court - don't you think so? -
and be cool both places! Inci-
dentally, but not incidental, Miss
Dillon is showing some lovely vita-
cool summer suits-- just the thing
for all-time wear, and the loveli-
est pastel gabardines that you've
seen. I've given you the lead -
now it's up to you to look (take a
big look while you're at it) into the

AND THEN there is the scent
for every summer costume - an-
other little matter you might look
into! For the sports lady it's
Tweed, floral perfumes ' for the
summer afternoons in a fresh
frock, and gardenia, carnation, or
spicy for the mid-summer evening
and a flowing filmy gown. And it's
provide you with your summer
scent. Yes, perfumes, toilet waters,
colognes cannot be dispensed with
for your coming vacation to make
you fresh and charming at all
times of the day. And another
thing these perfumes come in your
favorite "make" - and in suiting
yourself in your OWN particular
iproduct, you can suit yourself
with the various odors. It's all
yours for the asking - so take
your pick and ask!
DON'T be at loose ends with
your hair! Why not try a long
bob for a change and curl the ends
under - something new and dif-
ferent, no less - and very smart.
Or we might try old-fashioned
fluffy bangs, in fact, there's any
number of cutely peculiar ways to
wear your hair - and right now I
suggest that you trot down to the
either describe your heart's desire
or ask for suggestions, both of
which you will get and then some!
Take advantage of this, and let

with smartness and femininity,
because the smart lady of 1937 is
