THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Moping On The Mall
By Meandering Minnie
Congratulations are now in order to Mickey Mouse Luby, the father
of our column, for winning the prize top hat of the week.
The busy little group in the League Undergrad Office the other day
was a charming sight to see. All the little hands were busy making paper
flowers for the "Secret Garden." Helen Jesperson, Sally Pierce, Alberta
Wood, Faith Watkins, Ruth Friedman and Dorothy Novy
were among the artistic ones.
J.G.P. seems to be getting a little involved, even at this
early date. On the bulletin board the other day, the dance
class was scheduled for the Garden Room. When the women
trucked on down there, they were told to go up to the Kala-c
mazoo Room. From there they were directed to the Ballroom.
Let's have a treasure hunt-shall we? Alys Pierce, Priscilla
Abbot, Alice Bassett, Nancy Saibert, Mary Skinner and Pa-
tricia Haff were among the tryouts.
W.A.A. Under Control...
W.A.A. has gotten under control at this point-badminton, basketball,
rifle, swimming, bowling and so forth. The basketball tournament is now
going on, and early results are piling in. Delta Gamma whipped the Ann
Arbor Independents last Monday. On Tuesday, Frances Anderson scored
most of the points when Alpha Gamma Delta defeated A.O.Pi by 14 to 2.
Zone IV was also among the losers when Mosher beat them 11 to 6.
Marorie Kern was high point scorer when she piled up 7- points. Sally
Connery and Irene Sabo, forward and guard, were certainly whipping around
the floor at a breakneck rate of speed. Among the season's basketball
fiends are Jeannette Wathey, Elinor Bale, Virginia Storts, Frances Anderson,
Charlotte Baxter, Dorothy Adams, Edith Butler, and Betty Armstrong.
Sorosis beat Kappa last night, 11 to 6.
Dorothy Cowan, Virginia Finkbeiner, Edith Flack, Edna Kandelin, Mary
Richardson, and Olive Reed have been practicing their riflery with great
Bowling Begins At arbour.. .
Next Tuesday the dance club will give a Christmas exhibition. Same will
be presented in the W.A.B. that afternoon, and tea will follow the per-1
formance. Beatrice Lovejoy, Beverly Jenness, Shinsil Kim,
Leada Miller and Virginia Brigham have been working
long and hard on it.
After rigorous tryouts the swimming club has settled
into a picked bunch of aquatics. Bettie Baker, Anita Car-
valho, Neva Dilley, Jean Hendrian, Helene Higgino, Virginia
Keilholtz, Charlotte Meredith, Twila Traber and Rowena
Lacoste are often seen thrashing around the Union pool.
Rowena recently won a yellow and blue"M" scarf from
,WA.A. for completing two seasons of participation. .
Bowling begins today when the club meets at 4:30 in Barbour. Elsie
Waier is high scorer for women this week, with a snappy 184, and Stanley
Strine leads the men with a high 224. Louise Patterson, Roberta Moore,
Betsy Anderson and Eleanor Peschke are ardent devotees who practice

Orchestra Was Conducted
The Boston Symphony, directed by
Serge Koussevitzky, was well received
last night in Hill Auditorium. There
was one of the largest attendances of
A marked contrast was noted be-
tween the first two numbers in the
first half of the program; the first
composition, the symphony of Haydn
in G major, No. 88 is a decidedly
classical score while Prokofieff's or-
chestral suite "Lieutenant Kije," is a
comparatively new composition which
tends towards the modern. The Hay-
dn Symphony showed a small wind
instrument section with the string in-
struments dominaiing throughout.
The audience was particularly recep-
tive to "Lieutenant Kije." The second
movement (Romance) was played by
a string base. There was a great deal
of musical variety throughout the
remainder of the composition.
The second half of the program
was Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op.
. 43 by Sibelius, a living composer.

An electric range is the gift of gifts .. . something every woman wants
and hopes some day to own. An electric range is more than
just another stove: It combines SIX GIFTS in one.
O The gift of kitchen freedom. An
electric range brings extra hours of lei-
sure to do the things you enjoy most.
You can put your whole meal in the
electric oven and go out for the after-
noon. A Timer Clock (available at small
additional cost) turns the oven on and
off at the proper time. When you come
home your dinner is waiting, perfectly
cooked-piping hot and ready for the
The gift of cleanliness. An electric
range cooks with pure heat from a glow-
ing wire-heat as clean as sunlight. You
will enjoy the ease with which you can
keep your kitchen bright and sparkling,
with less frequent redecorating expense
and practically no scouring of utensils.
t The gift of better meals. Electric
cooking has a delicious natural flavor.
There is nothing else like it. Meats and
vegetables cook to melting tenderness
in their own juices. You'llbe amazed at
the difference electric cooking makes in
ALL your recipes.
The gift of healthful cooking. The
waterless cooking method is at its best
on an electric range. Precious minerals
and important food values are sealed-in
... not boiled away in excess water and
poured down the sink.
O The gift of comfortable cooking.
In hot summer weather, an electric range
does not raise the temperature of the
kitchen, even one degree, by actual
1 The gift of modernness. Electric
stoves installed ten years ago still look
as good as the day they were installed.
An electric range will often beautify
the entire kitchen.
Electric cooking is the finest cooking
that money can buy ... and today, you
don't need a great deal of money to buy
it! Electric range prices are now so mod-
erate that you can purchase an electric
range for about the cost of an average
stove of comparable size and features.
This Christmas, choose the gift that will
serve the entire family .... surprise her
with a new, modern, sparkling ELECTRIC
RANGE! See the new electric ranges on
display at department stores, electrical
dealers and at all Detroit Edison offices.
Did You Know
T HAT this year marks the hundred and
sixtieth anniversary of THE DECLA-
RATION OF INDEPENDENCE.
Ironically enough the LIBERTY BELL
that rang forth the birth of a new nation
was cast in Whitechapel, London, in the
year 1753 by Thomas Lister. Due to un-
usual brittleness it was necessary to twice
recast it. Contrary to general opinion the
bell did not crack while pealing forth the
glad tidings of Independence but while toll-
ing a knell for the death of Chief Justice
Marshall in 1835.
The young nation of 1781 was founded
on individual initiative and endeavor. It
has become the world's most prosperous
country by adhering to this principle that
the Liberty Bell heralded from its brazen
throat one hundred and sixty years ago.
T HE MICHIGAN DAILY believes that in-
dividual initiative and effort as coordi-
nated by its heads is the cornerstone of effi-
cient service. It seeks to apply wherever
possible individual attention to the needs
of its readers and advertisers.
Since 1890 The Daily has been an integral
part of the University life. In that year
it became a student publication under the
Board in Control of Student Publications.
Its size and prosperity has grown with that
of the University and Town until today it
stands as one of the best college papers in
the country. The Daily is proud of its
University, proud of its Town, and cher-
ishes the esteem in which it is held.
The Michigan Daily invites an inspection
of the unusual facilities it offers in the way
of news and advertising.
