Shanghai Rotary Club indicate that'
the refugee lists are increasing at the
rate of 200 a day. The Salvation
Army alone is caring for 10,000 refu-
gees in Shanghai.
Students Are Contributing
In face of this great need, the Chi-
nese students in the United States
are making every effort to contribute
as much as possible to the relief of
their suffering countrymen. The
Michigan group, which is the largest
at any American University, is spon-
soring this Chinese movie as a means
of raising their portion of this relief
The picture, "Song of China," has
been pronounced by Beaton of the
Hollywood Spectator as the best ex-
ample of the art of the screen which
he has viewed in the past six months.
It represents the finest cinema art of
China. It is entirely the work of
Chinese actors and producers and was
filmed in China. The picture is au-
thentic in every detail, giving a con-
vincing and beautiful picture of Chi-
nese life before the war.
Stage Show To Be Given
The Chinese students are present-
ing also a brief stage show, after
the picture. There will be a special
matinee at 2:30 p.m. Saturday for
the benefit of those who cannot see
the film Friday night.
Tickets, which are priced at 50
cents, are on sale at the Union,

Week's Entertainment To Bring
Slenezynski, Interfraternity Ball
"Swing is here to sway" not only
in the realm of music, but in that
of ice as well, it seems. At least, the
wide flare of such skirts as the one
pictured above indicates that de-
signers are preparing for freedom
of action on the rinks as well as
on the dance floor.1

First Aid Course Of Red
Cross Begins This Week
The first class in a first aid course
for both men and women students,
sponsored by the local chapter of the
American Red Cross, will be held from
7 to 9 p.m. some evening this week,
probably Thursday, in University
The course will consist of ten two-
hour periods of lectures, demonstra-

give the instruction. An American

Even the shoes are getting tempera-
mental! And if you've made up your
mind that you are very much tired
of the suede pumps you've been wear-
ing all fall and winter and that you
would prefer something different, oh
entirely different, then the new shoes
It's a bit of the Italian touch, and a
very radical bit too! After Ferragamo
of Florence presented his thick cork-
soles to the astonished world, other
designers covered the cork soles with
kid and other skins. These are now
worn (or rather, worn if you can make
it) for street wear. Of course, for
campus they are simply out of the
question, but if you want to call a,
small sized riot, there's nothing bet-
Beginnings Were Crude
But from these crude beginnings
have sprung Ferragamo's inspiration.
The sole is built up starting from the
toes and ascending to the heel. The
sole itself is flat on the bottom but
forms sort of a triangle with the body
of the shoe.
But if you want something a little
less sensational and still on the "being
different" side, you'll like the fashion-
able shoes in python leather. They
say men risk their lives to captiure
these beasts, but it's certainly worth
the effort. They make very, very
There Are Pumps And Pumps
There are pumps dressed up with
little bows, and pumps that are built
up a bit toward the ankle. If you
have sturdy ankles, there are those
which fasten with a strap right at
that point of your leg. They give your
foot extra length and grace, if that's
what you're looking for. Cross-strap-
ped shoes are very good and also come
in python. Of course the toe-less
shoes are featured everywhere and
come also in this new leather.
For you people with an eye toward
the southern points for between se-
mesters and spring vacation, the white
shoes are making their appearance,
and very much of an arrearance too.
Brown-and-white combinations are
still the best. The toe-less angle comes
in here as well. One pair is in white
calf-skin with trimmings of perfor-
ated luggage tan. For campus in the
spring they'll give a brand new feel-
So with these suggestions you should
really be stepping high.
