Tickets wlil be distributed by mem-
bers of the social committee or may
be procured at a table in the main
lobby of the League the day of the
show. There will be no charge for
the tickets, but reservations for tables
in the ballroom itself entail the obli-
gation of ordering tea which will be
25 cents. Reservations may be made
by calling Mrs. A. L. Clarke at her
office in the League.
The style show presented by this
store is an annual affair, and is con-
ducted by the social committee of
the League. Charlie Zwick's six piece
orchestra will play, and a represen-
tative of the store will do the an-
Attendance Is High
One table will be reserved for a
group of Ann Arbor women who will
be the special guests of the store. The
names will be announced later, Miss
Heath said. At last year's show there
was an attendance of more than 1,-
000, and for this reason it is impera-
tive that reservations be made
Both residents of Ann Arbor and
students are urged to attend. The
show has been presented for a num-
ber of years and has always been ex-
tremely successful, Miss Heath said.
Ann Arbor people who find it im-
possible to pick up their tickets be-
fore March 24 may do so then.

March 31, still two weeks off, marks1
the climax of another 'struggle' for
positions on the Student Senate, con-
ceived last year at this time and ap-'
parently dying and ignominious;
Originated in the hope that it
would become a respected and pow-
erful organ of expression for all types
of students, its chief value has ap-
parently been to act as a proving
ground for the Hare system of pro-
portional representation.
Volunteers Turn Out
Though this particular form of
election requires a lot of effort on the
part of the election officials, there
has been no lack of volunteer assis-
tants, particularly among political
science majors who are anxious to
find out exactly how the system
Obviously however, the purpose of
the Student Senate is not to act as a
proving ground for any system of
election. Its purpose, a rather vague
quantity, is to function as a center
of discussion for all types of thought
on all types of question. In this pur-
pose it has been more successful than
most students realize.
Failure Due To Student
If it has failed then, its failure is
due to the lack of interest generally
found among students on this cam-
pus in current affairs outside the
scope of the Union, the League and
Angell Hall. Whether this is an in-
dictment of student attitude or not
depends chiefly on where one stands
in the case.
The most probable explanation is
simply that the average student is
too busy going his way to pay much
attention to the Student Senate or
anything else. At any rate, the Dies
committee would be hard up to find
a bit of red or even pink in the re-
ception accorded the Senate is any
