Moping On The Mall
ByAMeandering Minnie
Christmas is practically on its way, and all the University is practically
on its respective ways home.
Monday afternoon before the League Council meeting got under way
completely, a bunch of the upperclass-women were seen jumping rope
in the Undergraduate Offices. Barbatra Bradfield had brought a rope to
tie up her roommate, one Betsy Baxter, and putting it to good use were


Hope Hartwig, Bobbie Melin, Midge Ayers and
Mary Johnson.
All the league house presidents were at a meet-
ing last Tuesday. Billie Potter, Ruth Steinke,
Frieda Kaufman, Clara Marie DeWeese, Helen Lou
Mosher, Phyllis Brochman and Lottie Marie Babin-
ski were there. Elsie Mueller went on record in
favor of the League Sunday night suppers for
league houses and Virginia Ritter gave her little bit
on the side of faculty teas.
The Christmas program of the Modern Dance
Club was given in the W.A.B. Tuesday afternoon.

It was a very artistically presented program-one that did the art proud.
Eileen Lay, Ann Schaeffer and Grace Wilson sang in the trio. Beatrice Love-
joy, president of the club, Virginia Brigham, Doris Daitz, Beatrice Danziger,
Sarah Graf, Barbara Guest, Elaine Hamilton, Virginia Hoelzle, Beverly
Jenness, Sally Kenny, Shinsil Kim, Edith Levienne, Leada Miller, Mary Jane
Mueller, Beth O'Roke, Mary Redden, Irene Sabo, Victoria Staianowski,
Bernice Wolfson and Bud Wolfson took part. Mary Johnson, W.A.A. presi-
dent and Dorothy White were there, and Alberta Royal was passing
out programs.
Badminton Proving Popular
Badminton has become so popular this season that the powers that be
are seriously considering making people sign up for a course. Too many
people come at once on the open nights
at Barbour to make things run smoothly. ,,
By the way, the floor is being "done" dur-
ing Christmas vacation, and as a result,
there will be three, instead of two courts.
The swimming club had a five-women,
swimming meet in the Union pool yester
day afternoon. Barbara Johnson won the
back crawl in competition with Helen
Wolf. Helen and Jean Hendrian won the
tandem from Clara Lenfestey and Sally
Corcoran. Sally, in turn, beat Clara and
Jean in the breast stroke, and Jean beat .
everybody in the 50 yard dash. Seems like it gets rather involved as time
goes on.
That awful W.A.A. pool again! Without a doubt, there's never a day
but that somebody brings it up. Now they are even handing in little poems
for the Daily.
The carillon plays Christmas carols
And we wish that you could see
The spirit of Michigan's Christmas
In the lights on the Campus Tree.
If wishes could be granted,
And as the air, were free,
We'd wish Santa would leave us
A POOL, not a Christmas Tree.
Mlartha Cook Attends Theatre..
Martha Cook went down to Detroit to see Helen Hayes in "Victoria
Regina" and the next night, full of youthful spirit and ambition, they
walked all over Alpha Epsilon Phi and beat them by 24 points! Final score:
Cook 25, Alpha Epsilon Phi, 1.
The time has come for all good mice to truck on home for the
holidays. Let us close with the ever-present and ever-trite-see you next

Prof. William HaberE
Talks To Graduates
Prof. William Haber of the ec-
onomics department was the prin-
cipal speaker at the Gra-duate Lun-
cheon held yesterday noon in the
Russian Tea Room of the League.
Prof. Haber spoke on the present ec-
onomic conditions in the United!
Thousands of industrial layoffs I
took place and at the same time the
federal government economized, he
said. Thus, need has been going up
and ways of meeting need have been
going dowh. On the one hand, Pro-
fessor Haber stated, we want the gov-
ernment to spend less, and the bud-
get to be balanced. On the other
hand, when the government does

If you would like to make a child'sj
Christmas complete, one of the books
by Sadye and Anson Lowitz would
prove a real delight.
Mrs. Lowitz, the author of the
stories, graduated from the Univer-
sity of Michigan in 1925 and since,
has become a prominent writer of
books for children. Mr. Lowitz does
the extremely clever illustrations,
which are of as much enjoyment to
the reader as the story itself. The
drawings are very gay and are scat-
tered abundantly throughout the
Among the books is "General
George the Great," which gives the
life of Wash~ngton in a way that
brings him to reality. "The Cruise
of Mr. Christopher Columbus" and
"Mr. Key's Song" make both of these
events unforgettable. A spirit of ad-
venture characteristic of fairy tales}
fills every page and has just the
right touch of lightness and sim-
plicity. Mrs. Lowitz believes that the
adventurous side of historical events
should be emphasized and thus en-
courage further explorations into
history on the part of the young

Pilgrim's Party"Fare equally interest-
ing and amusing; for the children
