An opinionated person by profes-
sion, we're atsomething of a loss
this week to decide just what sub-
ject most properly deserves our at-
tention. We might thumb our nose.
at Hitler (and howl we'd like to!), we
might give Michigan's new governor
our blessing, or we might wish the Al-
umnae House girls the best of luck
and hope they didn't all catch colds
in the fire Monday.
On the.other hand, being juniors
at heart, we choose to recommend
"Pig in a Poke" as the best JGP in
history. Yes indeed, there's talent
in the class of '40, and Sophomore
Cabaret and Freshman Project were
mere phantoms of the successful
class project compared to the "Pig"
which opens its initial performance
tonight at the League.
If you're the type that goes for
hoops and luscious colors in a big way
you'll love the costumes which Jane
Nussbaum and her hard-working
committee turned out after many
hours of slaving over the sewing ma-
chine. On the other hand, if you
like your plays with plenty of clever
lines to give them spice you'll ap-
preciate Dick McKelvey, both as au-
thor, and director.
If you're like us and mostly like
them funny, be prepared to roar
when the Colonel goes into action on
"I challenge you!" and practically
cracks the table top when he bangs
on it. It's hard to lay one's finger
on the exact point where the "Pig's"
success will lie because it is practical-
ly perfect in every detail.
Unlimited credit goes to Dorothy
Shipman, general chairman, and her
whole committee for the hard work
they've put in, and only a little less
to every junior participant. It's been
difficult and long, but there was
never a play put on with more en-
thusiasm among those working in it.
Now take the hansom cab, f'r-
instance. A beautiful scene, yes in-
deed. No one will ever know that
the darn thing broke down at every
rehearsal and caused Bob Corrigan
plenty of headaches over making its
wheels go round. 'Nuff said,

Sappington To Talk
Fashion As Applied
All Phases Of Life

Mr. L. B. Sappington, assistant
merchandise manager of the J. L.
Hudson Co., will be the first of three
speakers in the current series of lec-
tures sponsored by the University Bu-
reau of Appointments and Occupa-
tional Information who will be of
particular interest-to women, Dr. T. L.
Purdom, head of the Bureau, said
Fashion, in its broader aspect as
applied to every phase of modern life.
will be the subject of Sappington's
lecture, to be given at 4:10 p.m. to-
day in the League.
Since 1920 Sappington has been
actively engaged in the field of mar-
chandizing and fashion. After grad-
uating in 1919 from the University
of California, he joined Hudson's as
assistant advertising manager for
three years. He transferred to the
William 1H.engerer Company, Buf-
falo, N.Y., as vice-president and gen-
eral merchandise manager, and re-
turned to J. L. Hudson Co. in 1930 in
his present position.
Though thoroughly acquainted
with the field of fashion open to the
clothes stylist, Sappington's lecture
will place particular emphasis on the
more varied opportunities in other
phases of the general fashion field.

Inquiring Reporter Finds
Out Salient Facts Of
Michigan'sIce Rink
Eleven miles of pipe . . . an ex-.
coffin factory . . then amusement
park . . . a lost petticoat . . . four
inches of sawdust . . . 500 gallons of
water a day . . . large blue spots...
small red spots . . . Doesn't anyone
recognize it? That's the Coliseum,
or with respect for hockey Coach Ed
Lowry's wishes, the University of
Michigan Ice Skating Rink.
'Open for four months of the year,
from the middle of November until
last Sunday, the Coliseum is a ka-
leidoscope of names, people and
events. Not only did the Michigan
sextet play 14 games there this past
winter, but every afternoon skaters
have come from as far as Detroit to
try their skill on both fancy and plain

and he thinks professional hockey is
exceedingly dangerous.
One girl of 14 in a green skating
skirt and floppy green sweater, on
which a Dick Tracy badge was pin-
ned, has enough enthusiasm and
skill to daunt many a veteran skater.'
Indeed, she proudly displayed a med-

class which she won in an all-De-
troit contest. Watching from the
stands, many a fond mother sits and
freezes while she sees her child do
stunts on the ice.
But if one gets -too tired skating,
one can always take "the pause that
refreshes," for the Coliseum operates
a refreshment stand. Furthermore,
there is a check room, a skate-rent-
ing business and a skate-sharpening
Cornering Mr. Elmer Kapp, skate
sharpener and general manager, we
;managed to get a few more additional
facts about the Coliseum. After the
rink, which is 208 feet by 83 feet, has
been flooded with hot water, it freezes
over again in about an hour. In order
not to pile up too much ice during
the year, the rink is planed three
times during the winter. This in-
volves the removal of about 50 tons of
But with spring so definitely in
the air (although it came from re-
liable sources that it was seven above

has decided to roll up the ice and
save it for next year.
