Herbie Kay To Play For 22nd Annual Military Ball A

Moping On The Mall
By Meandering Minnie
Sorry! Minnie couldn't even meander this week. She merely slopped
hither and yon around campus. In fact, we have just come to the momentous
decision that we should have stayed home and retained our hazy vision of
A2 with the trees in bloom, the birdies singing, and the students not study-
ing, instead of coming back to be disillusioned by that aforesaid town
(not mentioning any names, you understand) being horribly typical. Nasty f
old rain! Isn't there some ditty about going away and coming again an-y
other day-well, we're hinting pretty strongly right now, if you know what ;
we mean.2
'Puddle Jumpers' Will Clutter League ...
Minnie must go on, however. Rain or no rain. And so we reach the n
League, only to find Betty Slee milling about the Undergrad Office with o
Judish (do you spell it with an "sh"?; we've only talked t
about it heretofore) in full swing with petitioning for w
J.G.P. of 1940 getting underway in the not too distantC
future. And then Dorrie Mercer and Bobby Bachus wereS
around for the same purpose.
Freshman Project fits right into our mood, so we're
glad to see some "Puddle Jump" planners, or Freshman
to you. We suspect a prearrangement-sort of a gang-up
of Ginnys-on Lois Basse's decoration committee, with F
Virginia Appleton's, Alvin, Frey, and Ward in evidence. E
Other ardent projectors we've seen around are Phoebe;
Power, Patricia O'Farrell, Lois Sharbaugh, and Penny L
Patterson. No telling what gigantic possibilities these Froshies may have,a
but it won't be long until all will be revealed. Swing it Class of '42.
And speaking of swing, there was a Swing and Sway session last nighta
at the League. Ladeez and Gentleman, we will have you know this is the w
first in a series of four, with Arthur Murray's dancers, Bennett and Gale, A
at the third one. (End of buildup.)p
On To The Pool Via Michi.gras ...
Which reminds us of a carnival barker, which reminds us of Michigras,t
which reminds us that Dame Rumor has it-or did we read it someplace-
that said mirth-provoking, rollicking, fun-having time (unquote-Harriet
Sharkey) will be May 5 and 6. It's one of the main worries down at the W.A. f
Building these days because the women's swimmingt
pool is at stake, you know. 1
A little bird told us that Senior Society initiated
Tuesday evening while Mortar Board increased their c
membership last night. Janet Clark, Betty Gross, Patty fi
Mathews, and Dody Nichols were among the initiates ofP
the former. And then there were Dotty Shipman, Al-
berta Wood, Beth O'Roke, Zenovia Skoratko, and Dottyw
Shipman just sort of around-dawnchaknow-last night.
The Class of '40's BWOC's or Minnie isn't as smart as she b
thinks she is.
And then there's the definition of a college man by a college girl which
we heard the other day-"Shoes, shoulders, and short pants." Need we say
more? i
Off to the races we say, or get ready for a trying week, on account of b
things should be happening quite fast from now on. Minnie says, "See ya!" '

Faculty To Hold Vance

Shoe fashions are singing the blues
again this spring-light, bright, sky,
and navy-but with added notes of
japonica, cherry, April wine, and
smarter-than-ever black to add gla-
mour to your own particular Easter
A black, perforated-patent number,
for instance, with open-toe, slender
heel, and strapping high around the
ankle will give you a "lift" exceeding
that of the heel height.
And, if you want to look, as well as
feel, exciting, try a cherry-pie-cut
shoe dne in lastex and trimmed in
light weight summer suede. A high
vamp, open toe and heel, and side
cut-outs add the final touch of dis-
A newheelless, toeless, low-
vamped pump bids fair to become a
classic this spring. It is equally
smart in japonica, cosmetic blue, or
black patent, and can be worn on all
Peek-a-boo mesh will be a favor-
ite this season for all those who seek
to combine style with comfort. One
particular model has a row of chubby
buttons up the front, a blue-calf trim,
and is available in either high or
transition heels.
You'll call it contrary-wise, but
you'll probably love this late design
in pumps which has one side cov-
ered, and the other open to the wind.

Indian Game Offered By WAA

Lacrosse, the oldest known athletic
contest played on the American con-
tinent, has been revived as one of
the sports offered by the women's
physical education department.
Originally played by the Indians
as a form of war manuver, whole.
tribes were pitted against each other.
Goals were .situated from one to sev-
eral miles apart, and any part of the
intervening territory was playing
ground. These contests, often last-
ing as long as a week, were gruelling
tests of courage and endurance.
From this mammoth beginning

lacrosse has evolved into a game
that combines many features of hock-
ey and basketball. The contest is
between two teams each composed of
12 persons.
Play is started by the "draw" of
the centers, which corresponds to
the bully in field hockey and the
tip-off ii basketball. The side se-
curing the. ball as a result of the draw
attempts to'carry it towards the op-
ponents' goal. The ball may be car-
ried in the lacrosse stick or thrown to
another player of the same side, or, if
on the ground it may be knocked or
