Ann Arbor Membership
Is Committee's Goal
A committee of 18 lieutenants un-
der the direction of Mrs. L. J. John-
son, captain, was formed recently by
the Ann Arbor division of the Wom-
en's Field Army of the American So-
ciety for the Control of Cancer, Mrs.
Cyrus C. Sturgis, publicity chairman,
announced yesterday.
The purpose of the committee will
be to solicit membership from the
business and factory district of the
city. Its aim, Mrs. Sturgis said, is to
make everyone in Ann Arbor acutely
conscious of the cancer problem.
On the committee are Mrs. May-+
nard A. Newton, Mrs. Willard C. Ol-
son, Miss Fredericka Waldron, Mrs.+
E. W. Kern, Mrs. Paul M. Haller, Mrs.
W. Lloyd Berridge, Mrs. M. B. Eichel-
Berger, Mrs. H. D. Libolt, Mrs. John
Dyer, Mrs. Arch D. Wilson, Mrs. E.

A brunette wig, a mascara stick,
and a lanquid look became properties
in a twin act which played a one-
night stand on April Fool's Day when
a certain freshman woman imperson-
ated a mythical twin sister on a date.
The 'prevue' of the show is as fol-
lows: the "twin," divorced actress
from Hollywood, comes east and visits
sister the, same weekend that hert
counterpart is called home because of
illness in the family, so arrangements
are made for boyfriend to entertain
At 8 p.m. our blonde freshman
emerged as the dark, slinky and
sophisticated "Sandra Whitlock." Did
it go over? Yes, the disguise was com-
pletely convincing, but who can ex-
pect a freshman to keep her sense of
humor under control all evening,
especially when she is wrestling with
a long red cigarette holder? Yep, he
caught on.

"Cured Cancer Club" To Fight Disease

Led by An 82-year-old woman, a
small number of men and women
who had once suffered from cancer
and who had recovered from the
diesase, last year admitted to the
world their former afflication when
they formed in New York City a
"Cured Cancer Club."
The organization is considered by
those well acquainted with the can-
cer problem in the United States a
movement bound to raise the morale
of all those living in fear of the dis-
ease, or those who are actually suf-
fering from it. It is indicative of
the more mature attitude now being
taken toward the problem by the lay
public, it was stated by the Ameri-
can Society for the Control of Can-
cer, which is sponsoring the club.
Organization Started In East
Dr. Anna C. Palmer, of. Milton,
Mass., head of the Cured Cancer Club,
was cured of cancer 18 years ago, in

1920. Last spring the club was or- id
ganized in the East, and is expectedi a
to play an important part in the t
programs of many state divisions of t
the Women's Field Army, which is
an auxiliary of the society. e
Membership in the club is open
to all persons who have at one time f
had cancer, and who have been free a
from it for at least five years. Appli- tY
cants must be sponsored by a state- c
ment given by a physician in good g
standing. The American College of f
Surgeons this year announced that
they possessed a catalogue of 29,195
cured cancer cases, which is far in c
excess of the total given five years a
ago. t
Aim Is Education
Second largest cause of death in u
the United States, cancer looms as t
one of the greatest menaces to hu-
man life in modern civilization. The C
society, whose managing director is c
Dr. Clarence Cook Little, former pres- i






With the furor of League appoint-
ments beginning to settle down,
Michigan women (and men, too) turn
their attention expectantly to Michi-
gras, high point of the year for those
who like the simple things-ferris
wheels and loop-the-loops.
Though it's still in the rather far-
distant future, what with a bit of
vacation and another stretch of
school to span, it's not too soon to
start thinking about it. If J-Hop
is the week-end for formals and gay
parties, Michigras is the week-end
for kid sister to come up for an
exciting week-end at the Big School
---and that takes planning, you know.
It's A Young Tradition
Though it was only started two
years ago, Michigras bids fair to be
one of those traditions that stick. On
a campus where the typical student
would pass for a model of "what-the-
well-dressed-student-will-wear" (so
they tell me), it's no wonder that
the poor man likes a chance to break
down and dig his toes into the nice
dirt of the Yost Field House track,
pretend it's a bit of sawdust, and
act accordingly.
Like Circuses?
There's an atmosphere about the
affair that gets you, if you're at all
addicted to circuses and the like. With
the minimum of skill you can bring
home the maximum of prizes-in-
triguing little things like ashtrays or
Ferdinands or toy dogs. Flowers are
inexpensive and everybody wearing
them gives the whole fair a festive
One thing we missed last year
which we hope they'll have again, is
the stunt act put on by the Univer-.
sity team of acrobats. They had it
the first year and it was simply
amazing to see what talent was hid-
den among our fellow classmates. I
nearly died when the quiet boy who
sat next to me in history turned out
to be one of the stars. Really!!!

1o Sprimg Outfits
More than ever before the spring
fashion trends are demanding a dis-
tinit coordination of fresh new colors
in clothes and accessories appearing
in the fashion marts, Every item
from the tone of your dress down to
the most minute polka dot on your
hat veil must blend or contrast with
a system and planning that make for
good grooming.
Large pique daisies with either yel-
low or navy centers may be worn on
suit lapels or chucked under the brim
of dark straw hats. Turbans are the
perennial 'must,' and this year any
clever girl can drape her own out of
a yard of roman striped taffeta to
match those all-purpose roman
striped chiffon blouses for both for-
mal and day-time wear. These tur-
bans may also be matched by large,
flowing sashes on untrimmed navy
This game of "matching and cn-
t rasting" ought to be carried out in
beads too.;
