TIHE MICHIGAN DAILY
Moping On The Mall
By Meandering Minnie
The ugly head of Finals Fear, that disease known especially to Michigan,
has been seen lately. People, it seems, feel that they ought to study instead
- of playing basketball. For not too many games

- LOmega, with only five players, was defeated by
Jordan, which had a full team of six. On the
- winning side were Dorothy Gardiner, Mary Rich-
ardson and Joan Bevington. Jane Wilson, Peggy
Pulte, Margaret Waterston and Virginia Allen
were among the cheerful losers.
Zeta Tau Alpha showed good sportsmanship
Tuesday by deciding to use only five players when
they found their opponent, Helen Newberry, had only that number. But
virtue was not rewarded in this case, for the score of the game was 33 to 3.
in favor of the dorm. Newberry's hard hitters (or are we thinking of
baseball?) included Jane Dunbar, Doree Thornhill, Eileen Boorsma, Ruth
Seekamp and Norma Curtis. And congratulations to Norma, the newly
appointed chairman of Assembly Ball.
Hardy Souls Ride Horses .. .
Fifteen brave people faced the elements Sunday morning when the tem-
perature was only ten above and went horseback-riding. Dorothy White, Lois
Gillen, Betty Hood and Ellen St. John were part of the
plucky few. However, swimming enthusiasts didn't have
quite enough courage to turn out in full force (or anywhere
near full force) for the club meeting yesterday. Marie
Brans, Lois Gillen, Harriet Britton and Helen Wolf were
the only ones who appeared.
The W.A.A. bowling alleys have been quite crowded . P
lately. Among the recruits have been Catherine Parsons,
Doris Cranmore, Beatrice Hopkins, Roberta Moore, Ger-
aldine Krueger and Marion Weiss. The faculty-major school tournament
has started this week, so there ought to oe much doing and great excitement
from now on.
Rifling also has attracted quite a few. Elizabeth Gross, Blanche Ander-
son, and Florence Dyer have been among those present. Florence recently
won the rifle tournament 'and here's orchids to her and sympathy to her
roommate if Florence ever gets mad.
Michigan certainly is trying its best to train us to be ferocious. Fencing
has also been attracting a goodly number. Buffy White, Nina Svidlo, Ruth
Field, Cecily Forrest, Katherine Taylor, Mildred Bos and Olga Dobosz have
all been prancing around Barbour Gym armed with the dagger like wea-
pons. Here's sympathy to their roommates, too, in case they should ever
be seized with fits of anger.
No Flowers For Friday's Ball...
You girls must get on the ball so you'll look pretty for the ball. (Not
the Foo, but the Interfraternity.) The committee has announced that no
corsages will be allowed for the dance, so it's up to you to look beautiful-
with no outside help in the way of orchids.
At 5 p.m. today, the Ann Arbor Independents will hold a meeting to

Python Sets Are Elegant
Envelope styles continue to occupy
an important position for shopping,
business and school. Probably this is
because they can hold so much and
still lie flat. One style has very square

"would be no admittance" to the Fireside Hours. Sad case.
