DAY, APRIL 4, 1939



By the Neighbor
April 3, 1939
Dearest Wilbur,
Just think . . . only 72 hours and I can see you again. Won't you be
surprised when you see my new saddle shoes? You asked me what's been
happening lately, so I will tell you about my last Sat. till Mon.
Mosher Hall defeated Alpha Phi by a score of 28-19. The members of
the winni . . . pardon me, Wilb'ur, but the city editor just walked by.
What was.I saying, oh, yes, when Harold Garn and Peggy Dalton walled
into the S.A.E. dinner party a half hour late, the whale fraternity rose and
stood at attention . . . dead silence . . It must be an old Q.A.. custom
that you learn with the "Violets." George Kingsbury and Marcy Towns-
ley consumed unbelievable amounts of proteins, and Betty Stout and Larry
Thomas, "His Royal Dryness," had their usual discussion about which angle
to wear his pin. Bob Moffet and Jane 'Skiley loved the "spuds."
Got Any Clues, Wilbur? .
Shades of Pu Manchu . . . Some people say that it was Frank Rhein-
hammer that was spooking people with a Michigan blanket over his suit at
the Phi Kap dance, but who can be sure? Anyway, Pete Gossard and Betty
Barney weren't taking any chances. Joanna Dailey said that
it was a deep secret and you'd have to be on the inside to
® understand it.
At the Theta Delt party on Friday night Barbara Johnson
and Deacon McCall (you remember them from last year)
were talking things over confidentially. Bill Chamberlain and
Virginia Brereton executed some trick twirls after every
number. But Peopall seemed to remark that something was
missing. Do you think it could have been John G. Eldridge,
who was indisposed at home? Jeff Hall insisted that he
needed money to buy earmuffs for his gold fish, and no one
. t1 knew where your friend, Johnny Barr was.
And then there was the case of the worried girl who heard her room-
mate was bringing home a bunny. Connie William's pink footed one that
she won at the Union Bunny Hop has one eye lost in his whiskers. Pat
Loughead and Dick Ludwig decided their bunny was exotic, even if it was
knock-kneed. Kay Cramer and Max Busard and Kay
Williams and Russ Fischer hopped around like happy
Speaking of little animals, you can imagine the b
worries of Martha Poe when she found a fly living in
her coffee at the Gamma Phi dinner in the League. Dick '.
Mead practically had to disect an antenna to prove it - .
was only a wire fly. Back at the dance, Rae Gustafson, r
Johnny Ruccus, Bob Hotchkiss, Lee Hardy, and Dusty Rhodes shagged and
exchanged sallies, as old friends will. It took John Holton and Betty Gould
to show what suave dancing really is. Ted Novac stayed his usual two min-
utes and then he and Pedo Ortmeyer returned to where they came from.
No Shysters Allowed
Remember Doug Edwards and Peg McGregor? They could have sworn
that they saw a shyster "right over there in the corner" at Crease Ball,
but Carrel Langsten and Joyce Hammond insisted that he was only a flat
foot. Betty Cole and John Rae seemed deeply impressed
by some statement in the "Raw Review" about disorder-
ly conduct. Don Maxon and Shirley Roberts and Jim
Grahm and Ginny Sappington and Pat Patterson and
Johnny Johnston seemed to dance on and on.
I heard the Betas had a. party, too, but then,
enough is enough. So you can see, Wilbur, that Ann
Arbor doesn't need a Hitler or a five alarm fire to
keep things a-zipping.
Your own Mable.
P.S. You asked me if I'm still going steady with you. What makes you
think I'm not?

Staff Will Give
Senior Women.
Health Checkup,

White Accents For Chic

White Organdie Or Lace Makes
Cool Sheer Blouses For Spring,


Consecutive Years
Only Requirement
Medical Exam

All senior women who have attend-
ed the University for four consecu-
tive years will be given the oppor-
tunity for a complete health exam-
ination by the Health Service staff
after Spring Vacation, Dr. Margaret
Bell, director of physical education
for women, announced.
Complete Examination
The examination will include a
complete re-examination of eyes, ears,
nose and teeth as well as the general
examination and health conferences.
Letters will be sent this week to all
heads of dormitories, league houses
and sororities, and immediately fol-.
lowing Spring Vacation a letter will
be mailed to each student eligible for}
the examination stating the two-
weeks' limit within which she may
make her appointment. Those who
do not make their appointments at
the time specified in the letters will
have no other opportunity to do so.
When the students make their ap-
pointments at the Health Service
they will be given an intensive ques-
tionnaire, which Dr. Bell asks that
they fill out as accurately as pos-
Exam To Aid Research
Although the Health Service would
like to give this examination to all
senior women, numbering approxi-
mately 600, it will be impossible to
handle any more than the fdur-year
women, numbering approximately
200, Dr. Bell said.
The purpose of these examinations,
in addition to their obvious benefits,
is to enable the Health Service to
compare the state of the individual
senior's health today with her con-
dition at the time of entering the{
University, Dr. Bell said. This sur-
vey is being conducted because of
articles which have appeared in
magazines stating that a woman's
health ordinarily deteriorates while
she is at college.
House Heads Will Meet t
The association of league houset
presidents, which is one of the threef
subdivisions of Assembly, will meet
at 4:15 p.m. today in the League,
Mary Frances Reek, '40, Assembly,
president, announced yesterday.-
The meeting will be held to discuss .1
plans for next year's work. Atten-
dance is compulsory, Miss Reek said.

Not so long ago the co-ed of '27
slipped on a pair of "Goo"lashes and
a dress three or five inches below her
original waistline. With her high-
heeled shoes and a fresh marcel in
her hair she was all set for the soror-
ity tea.
Back To Victorian Era
Today her younger sister is going
far behind the "giddy" twenties for
her inspiration in dress. When she
walks out to the sorority teas she is
likely to be wearing a Victorian dress-
Smakersuit with a sheer blouse under
it. The blouses she may chose from
are of all the pastel shades from theI
reds to the grays.
Pink dressmaker shirts are among
the most popular selections. One such
model has demure pockets on each
side with stitching -along, the neck-
line. Light blue and amber yellow
blouses match exceedingly well with
a dark suit of the same color.
White Is Refreshing
Nevertheless, it is the dainty, white
blouse which has been receiving an
encore from the spring minded. Crisp
'and immaculate looking it adds a re-
freshing spark to the duskiest of out-
Lace and pique are tne most sought
after materials for these blouses. An
example that caught our attention
was a short sleeved one with a little
round collar. Six colourless buttons
marched down the front, each one
being smaller than the one at the top.
It is predicted that these blouses will
be worn under cardigans as well as
with suits.
Blouses With Formals
Nor do they have a chance to rest
up in the evening, for diaphomous
blouses are being shown for formal
wear with full skirts. Especially with
shadowy shades they are effective.
Such styles often have a figured de-
k'sign wending its way across the front
and back. Flowers, and bizarre pitch
forks may seem entirely out of touch
with each other in their attitudes, but
they meet on common ground in one
L striking model. In this case the flow-
ers were white and the forks were

figure out a blouse which will be asC
serviceable as a cardigan and yet
more feminine. Perhaps Vionet has
the answer in her startling creation
of a "Cardigan Blouse." This one is
as long as the average Brooks Sweat-'
er. It buttons down the front and
is gathered at the waist. One can
purchase it with its twin, which is of
the same material but has no but-
tons except at the actual top. Vionet's
model is of silk jersey, trimmed with
pique buttons.

ever, by Mrs. Haynes, Mrs. Smits,

White pique rickrack edges the
neckline and hem of this trim navy
