The inevitable question during the past week was "Shall I?" or "Shall I
not?" just forget to go to my various and sundry classes . but after
the question was answered either "yes" or "no" came a weekend of
merriment and fun and the ever-present dances at the Union and the
League ... plus only a handful of chapter house dances . . a welcome
respite from the hurry-scurry of the past few weeks .. .
Even though chapter house parties weren't in vogue, Lambda Chi Alphaj
threw another radio dance Friday night . .. they seem to make a practice1
of averaging at least one party a week . . . Roy Neff and Jean Langfordt
again took in the fun ... Morgan Gibbs and Jack MacLeod were making
fun of the girls who seemed to have a chronic case of sleepiness . . . andc
Mary Ann Young and Patricia Matthews were making valiant efforts to
conceal the yawns ... everyone was sleepy for some unknown reason..
Bill Hope came in with. Charlotte Schreiber tucked underneath his arm
. ..and Dotty White and Shorty Wolf went down to the dining room
which had been converted into a "sitting" room,. .
' os beautiful' Swnmer, Too . .
The Swimming Team's Banquet at the Union Friday night brought
all the aquatic stars out . . . for steak and speeches . . . Johnny Haigh
and Betty Johnsoil were intent upon eating that last little
bit . . . while Tiny Blodgett and Hal Benham listened to
platitudes emanating from head table . . Jane Krause
and Eddie Mack applauded the election of Bill Beebe as
"most beautiful man on the team" . .. while Alberta Wood
just smiled . . . after everyone was all speeched out they
all went down to the Ballroom to carry on . . . Betty Bald-
win and Blake Thatcher were already down there dancing
Now that the plain everyday dances are in favor again
the League was crowded to the doorway Friday night.
The A.T.O.'s table was filled to overflowing most of the
time and among those using it for the base of operations
was Harry Clark and Ruth Washburn, Pete Gossard, Jerry
Martin and Roberta Teall, Bill Shaw, Ted Frazier, Lorraine Haskins and
Art Brandt, and Kenny Meyers ... Addie Mason and Jack Appleton came,
by to say "Hello" to Lorraine and stayed for a while .. ,
The royal family, of Boeotia was well represented on the floor . . . Hi
Collins and'Mary Gies were fairly stomping up a dust storm with their
spirited stepping . . . and Marcia Connell and Casey Carter were runningt
a close second for honors . . . Bill Canfield was standing on the sidelines
watching Marietta Killian and Russ Strickland dd a couple of nifty steps,.
Eccentric Daicii . . . But Not Tap .. .
Reed Alexander and Harriette Babcock watched while Bill Forcey and
Ronnie Stilson did a solo . . . a very eccentric solo it was too . . . Dotty
Barrett and Al Roth came jup from below just as Rosemary "
McArthur and June Johnson appeared . . . Marge Williams
and Bill Parfet were there as usual . .. and Wally Hook and
Marge Stebbins came up too. . . Eddie Bach was standing in
the lobby surrounded by people ..
Michigamua, the Vulcans, and the Druids banded together .
to give some kind of an Honors dance at the Hyron Hills
Country Club Friday night . . and some of the couples went n,
on a picnic beforehand ... Jack Thom and Margaret Mary;
Thomas were at the dance ... and Tom McCann and Frank(
Coolidge were also there . .. during intermission they cooked f.
up a jam session with the piano player in the orchestra whilel
Poodie Pomeroy and Mary Johnson cheered them on, aided in
the cheering by Hope Hartwig
Some of the more bold and daring members of the student
body decided against an evening of inside entertainment
and had a picnic out at Walled Lake Saturday night . .
Phil Elder and Johnny Clark took to the wild life with a-
Heigh-ho and a cheerio to Ann Arbor . . . and Mary Helen
Hurley and Bob Hanley put on old clothes prepared for the
fun too . . . Marg McCall and Johnny Stewart were with the
crowd too and went for rides on the roller-coaster and things Even outt
there it's impossible to get entirely away from everyone and they met up1
with Marie Sawyer and Bob Henoch and Freddie Buesser and Betty Ronal
also out for something a little different from the fare served up aroundg
here in the way of entertainment....n

Women II Co
Opportunities in volunteer com-
munity work for University women
living in Detroit during the summer
have been offered by the Volunteer
Service fqr College Women of the
Merrill-Palmer School, Ann Sprague,
executive secretary, announced.
The Volunteer Service was e Aab-
lished in April, 1933, for the purpose
of giving college women the .exper-
ience of applying their university
training by taking part in community
life after they have left the univer-.
sity. At the present time 55 alumnae
groups make up the membershio of
the organization and during the past
two years 154 women were active in
the service, 134 of them worked in 39
icifferent agencies.
Committee Offers Lectures
The Volunteer Service is one of the
groups making up the Central Voiun-
teer Committee of Social Agencies of
Detroit. In the winter of 1936-37 the
Committee offered two lecture courses
'at which authorities on the social
problems of Detroit gave lectures and
~led discussions.
The Toy Workshop Project was
opened in 1936 in the Crafts Room of
the Merrill-Palmer School, where the
workers make simple toys and rebind
old books for children of the hospitals
and public health clinics. The toys
are made entirely of waste material,
and are designed by the women in the
group. Another of the projects of
the service is concerned with Eloise
Mental Hospital. The Volunteer
Group has established a library for
