A interhouse volleyball tournament
will start Monday, Oct. 18, said Miss
Virginia Peaseley, instructor of phys-
ical education for women. The tour-
nament will have A and B divisions
and this year the rules will be mod-
ified. The volleyball tournament has
replaced an interhouse hockey tour-
nament which used to be held, be-
cause it was thought that hockey re-
quired too much skill and training
and therefore volleyball was a more
enjoyable sport for a tourney of this
kind, Miss Peaseley pointed out.
Archery Club To Meet
At 4:30 p.m. tomorrow in the
Women's Athletic Building the first
meeting of the archery club will be
held, Ruth Carr, '38, archery man-
ager, stated. Anyone on campus who
is interested in archery is asked by
Miss Carr to come out for the meet-
ing. All scores are kept from each
shoot and at the end of the season
a prize is awarded to the one with the
largest number of weekly high scores.
Freshmen women are allowed to
participate in sports, one of the few

Formals Combine Sweet1
Girlishness And Smooth
There are usually two alternatives
for the women preparing for the
winter's heavy schedule of parties;
sophistication or those adjectives,
sweet, simple and girlish. However,
this year the formals manage to
combine both ideas with outstanding
One dress which is smart, yet
sweet, is a rose taffeta, trimmed with
velvet of the same color. The formal
is rather decollete but has tiny bows
running down the front and it fits
smoothly at the waist, flaring for
yards at the hemline. With this
dress is a short bell-hop jacket with
velvet buttons.
Dress Spells Smoothness
A dinner dress which spells
smoothness is one with a black velvet
skirt with a gold kid top. A short
black velvet bolero jacket with puffed
sleeves is lined with the same gold
kid. Gold satin made on simple lines
is stunning for very formal occasions
especially if it has the new draped
Black tis always good for evening
and one dress is made of black velvet
with puffed sleeves and white gar-
denias nestle in the folds of the
sleeves. The skirt is split up the
front making the hemline slightly
uneven. With this, one could wear
a cameo on a black velvet ribbon. An-
other dress in black is made of net
with a wide border of taffeta around
the hemline and this makes the skirt
stand out. The gown itself is shirt-
waist fashion but the slip provides
the more formal aspect as it is cut
Short Formals-Or Not?
There is some speculation as to
whether or not short formals will
be worn in these parts but formals
with uneven hemlines are just seen
everywhere. One in royal blue moire
has a bright green backing and it's
made in a very simple style with
puffed sleeves and a square neck-
Black, again, but this time it is
black net shot with gold. A black
velvet girdle is at the waist and the
skirt flares beyond all belief. An-
other formal is found in a bright
blue with tiny red velvet buttons
down the front and the jacket is also
in red velvet. The skirt of the dress
is split to the knees.
Slipper satin is made into every
style imaginable. One formal is iv
baby blue with drop shoulders and
a bouquet of pink roses in the front.
This dress is one of those things that
make you look rather adolescent butj
everyone will love it.
Black Is Still Favorite
Another of that old favorite black
is in velvet with inserts in the hem-
line of bright colored plait taffeta.
It has a Peter Pan color piped in the
same plaid with small buttons run-
ning down the front. Dubonnet vel-
vet is combined with blue crepe in
lacing down the rront of a severely
plain formal.
There will be lots of parties this
winter and everyone will want to look
their best. You don't have to pick
a certain type this year but with a
few changes of hairdress and acces-
sories you can change from a woman

Many hours a week are spent in
every state in the Union in careful-
grooming which is always necessary
for those good looks and that pleas-
ing appearance which all women
of the world into a sweet young thing.
By the way, don't worry about look-
ing like the latter because people
fairly eat it up, especially the men,
and probably that is really whom you
are interested in impressing. I
League Starts
Children's 'Play
Series Oct. 22
Sarah Pierce Will Direct
Younger Actors In This
Season's Productions
The series of plays, presented each
year by the Childrens Theatre, will
open Oct. 22, 23 and 24 according to
Ruth Friedman, '38, chairman of the
theatre-arts committee.
The names of the plays for the
coming year will be announced at a
later date, Miss Friedman stated, for
the schedule has not been definitely
arranged. Other productions will be
held Nov. 11, 12 and 13 and Dec. 9,
10 and 11.
The plays will be under the direc.
tion of Sarah Pierce, Grad, who has
directed all other productions of the
Childrens Theatre. Miss Pierce has
been active in Play Production and
has appeared in several roles both in
this group and with the Repertory
Players. She was seen in last year's
production of Henry VIII and also
directed Junior Girls' Play and the
pageant given by the freshman wom-
Childrens Theatre is arranged in
conjunction with Play Production
and is sponsored by the theatre-arts
committee. The purpose of the or-
ganization is to present plays of in-
terest and color to both children and
adults. Donations from various groups
make it possible for children of all
circumstances to attend these plays.
Miss Friedman stated that the
theatre-arts committee has made
plans to make this year's program
of greater interest and variation
than ever before. Their aim is to ar-
range the program in a unique and
different schedule and to extend the
popularity of the Children's Theatre,

She Has To Be Beautiful

Luxury For Coming Season
Found In Bride's Boxes,
'Cocktail' Perfume
Rich of fabric, seductive of style,
the gowns from the Paris Openings
have promised a return to the old-
time "elegance" in clothes. In choos-
ing your new perfumes for winter, it
would be well to advance along these
same lines.
A delightful, heady fragrance per-
fect for wearing with furs and velvets
is the new one called "Cocktail." And
it is; it has an intoxicating, exhilar-
ating effect. A small application is all
that is necessary, for it not only
clings for hours, but the longer it
stays on, the better it is. A heavy,
musky scent is always more appro-
priate for winter-time, and adds that
touch of femininity and allure to your
dressy, evening clothes. But a lighter
perfume is still to be preferred for
daytime costumes. That old favorite,
"Tweed," is as popular as ever. It
is now offered in a set containing
powder as well. This comes in snappy,
tweedy little boxes.
Three Bottles In a Penthouse
Another attractive set is "Pent-
house." The outside of the package
looks like a skyscraper, and inside
are three-good-sized bottles of col-
ogne in different "smells." Another
house puts out twelve "Garden
Scents" which are said to really have
the true fragrance of your favorite
Any woman who likes to bathe lux-
uriously in good soap will enjoy the
box containing four attractive cakes
which is put out by a famous French
house. Another new idea in soap is
the soap chest. But these cakes are
tiny-the ideal thing for carrying
when traveling back and forth to
school. The chest contains 18 cakes
that are tiny enough to leave behind
in the train when you have finished
without straining your economic con-
science at all. For soap is so un-
handy to carry around in your bags.
Manicure Sets For Daity Hands
Hands, too, come in for their share
of attention, and to provide a beau-
tiful background for jewels should be
smooth and soft with carefull mani-
cured nails. And all last traces of
the summer's tan should be removed.
A manicure set is perhaps the best
way to go about keeping your nails in
good condition. A complete set is
compact and attractive, and in that
way one is sure to have all the various
bottles, orange sticks and emory
boards in one place. They are mod-
erately priced, but practically price-
less to own.
And-here is something in the way
of a deluxe beauty kit that was de-
signed especially for college girls. The
company which puts this out first
selected a good-looking alligator case,
and then let a group of college girls
plan together the preparations togo
in it. And as a crowning touch, the
whole thing is within the average al-
lowance. The official name of these
cases, which come in red, black or
brown, is the Campus Carryall. It
contains powder, skin lotion, cream,
rouge, lipstick, comb and a large
Beauty In a Bride's Box
Have you seen the new "bride's
'boxes?" It seems that in the olden
days every bride kept a box full of her
keepsakes and treasures. T h e s e
bride's boxes are authentic reproduc-
tions of some originals that are in
the Metropolitan Museum in New
York. But our modern boxes are
filled to the brim with exciting beauty
preparations-soap, powder, toilet
water-everything in "Old Spice," a
quaint, yet thoroughly modern frag-
rance. The boxes are finished in
wood, decorated with little figures
and flowers, and the bottles, too, are
painted in gay colors.
A "Pro-Curler" is absolutely the
only thing for keeping the back hair
attractive and manageable in between
sessions at the beauty parlor. It is an
excellent aid for girls who haven't
the time to spend at the hair-dress-

ers. And it is very simple to operate
-simply put in a bobby pin, roll 'er
up and pull the curler out. This leaves
the bobby pin in the curl to hold it
firmly in place. A decided improve-
ment on the kind that used to be
manufactured. Why notsgive the
roommate a treat by using the "Pro,"
and throwing away those old-fash-
ioned, unsightly curlers?
Fortified with one of the ever-
popular bright colored warm blan-
kets, enclosed in thernew zipper bags,
and wearing a camel's hair polo coat,
which is always suitable on campus,
many a student will be better able to
watch Michigan score its touchdowns
this fall.
