Among the new summer cottons,
attractivelyfashioned )n stripes is
this shirtwaist style, whose vivid.
colors and novel buttons relieve its'
simplicity. A colored leather belt

Board To GiveI

Cups For Participation
For Winner Of Sing;
The Lantern Night line of march
will form at 7:15 p.m. today in front,
of the General Library. The band
will lead the procession to Palmer
Field, where the traditional Block M{
will be formed. The Lantern NightI
sing will immediately follow the line
of march.
If the weather is too damp to per-
mit the use of the field, the line of
march will still be held and the sing,
will take place at 8 p.m. in Water-
man Gymnasium, Norma Curtis, '39,
general chairman of the affair, an-
nounced. If it is actually raining
at 7:15 p.m., Miss Curtis'said, there
will be no line of march, but the sing
will be held at 8 p.m. in the gym-
nasium. Arrangements were made to
hold the sing inside in case of rain
because of many requests, Miss Cur-
Uis said. Questions about Lantern
Night will be answered at the Wom-
en's Athletic Building, she said. '
The participation cup given every
year by the Women's Athletic Asso-
ciation to the sorority, dormitory or
independent zone having the most
participants in W.A.A. will be pre-
sented at the sing, Ruth Hartmann,
'39, awards chairman, announced
yesterday. Last year Kappa Kappa
Gamma was the winner of the cup:
A cup will also be presented to the

Loses To MosherE

Moping On The Mall
By Meandering Minnie
J.G.P. is starting to work, as usual, without wasting any time. The
central committee called a mass meeting Tuesday to get the future
juniors together and tell them a few important points about the whole
thing. All the committee chairmen gave
a slight dissertation upon the work in-
volved. Enora Ferriss struck a small -D
snag when her roommate, Alberta Wood
, (new Wyvern president) sat in the front
row and methodically hissed. In fact,
the whole front row joined in, with
gusto, but Enora plowed right on to the
bitter end. Fortitude, we calls it.
b Jeanne Tibbets also gave a stirring speech on the best way to alienate
friends by collecting the dues for the affair. "Keep at 'em and collect
even if you do lose a friend," she cried. Mary Minor, who has gone
through an appendectomy recently, appeared to everyone's surprise, and
gave her speech although she was supposed to be going home on the 5 p.m.
Betty Brooks, Ruth Carr, Lillian Zimmerman, Jean Smith, Rhea Jane
Easton, Roberta Leete and Betty Baldwin were there in the audience.
.Braves Swat 'em PalefIace Good.
Michigamua took care of all their new little palepusses in their usual
lair-raising ceremony outside the General Library yesterday. The in-
itiates arrived early and disported themselves in boyish
play, ripping each other's shirts off, and dumping
* pails of water on each other's craniums. But when
* .the Big Boys arrived-the scene changed. In the
crowd gathered around to watch the primitive goings-
on were Naomi Levin, Kay Burns, Jack Brennan,
. Hal Benham, Mary Ervin, Betty Whitney (camera in
* hand), Pan Crandall and Bill Lord. It was a regular
* . field day for the amateur photography fiends. Harriet
, , Thom and Harvey Clarke were out in front of the
* Library waiting for things to happen, and so was
Barbara Summers. Barb Paterson also spent the
afternoon sitting on the steps in a mood of quiet
reverie. Not a good day for studying, apparently.
"Liliom" seems to be attracting the drama lovers.
Phil Clark, Margaret Whittemore, Genevieve Spurgeon,
she of the, broken pinion, and Janet Sibley took it in yesterday afternoon,
and Grete Holst was in the Tuesday night audience.

through the railroad yards at that, too.
