Future World
To Be Theme
Of Art Dance
Annual Affair To Feature
'Clothes Of Tomorrow'
And Faculty Caricatures
"Whirl of Tomorrow" is to be the
theme of the annual Architect's Ball
which is to be held from 9 p.m. to 1'
a.m., Friday, May 19, in the Archi-
tectural, Building. Richard Black,
39A, co-chairman of the ball, an-
nlounced that the theme is not to
be a take-off on the world's fair, but
will be the artists' own version of the
world of tomorrow.
All who attend the dance will be
in costume and prizes are to be
awarded for the most original "clothes
of tomorrow." Last year Fred James
and Sally Pierce, Grad., won awards
for the most original costumes.
Decorations will include caricatures
of the faculty and students as they
will appear several decades hence. Un-
usual lighting effects will be used to
portray a world of the future. K.
Conrad August, '39A, is in charge of
the decorations.
Tickets for the ball will go on sale
Monday at the Union and League
desks and at the Office of the College
of Architecture. They will be priced
at $2 a couple.
J. Edward Luders, '39A, and Black
are co-chairmen of the ball. Other
committee heads are: Ann Vedder,
'41A, tickets; Florence Brotherton,
'40A, patrons; Bruce Elliot, '40A, pub-
licity; and Fred Wigen, '39A, chair-
man of the music committee.

Program F o r Academic
And Play Training Aids
Chid In Readjustment
A unique institution in the coun-
try, but one which has been growing
tremendously since its introduction is
the Hospital School in the University
Hospital in Ann Arbor.
First organized in 1932 through a
gift from the King's Daughters Or-
ganization, it has been sustained ever
since from gifts and funds from va-
rious groups., principally the Galens
and Kiwanis Clubs, and smaller, con-
tributions in the form of magazines,
books, and toys from dormitories, sor-
ority and fraternity houses.
The school was established to pro-
vide the 8,000 children which enter
ithe hospital each year with the usual
experiences that they would meet in
normal life, because in a great num-
ber of cases, a long period of confine-
ment necessitates a great adjustment
problem upon their return to the
community. Its purpose is to corre-
late that the child wants to do,what
he can do, and what he must do as a
citizen of community life.
School Work Credited
One of the major activities of the
hospital school is allowing the child
to continue with his school work.
Specially trained, registered teach-
ers provide the academic training. Re-
ports of work done in the school are
sent back to their local'schools and
the children receive credit for the
However, activities are not limited

To maintaig your chic appearance
amidst the fun and excitement of
swooping on the Super Swoop or
a merry-go-round at Michigras, a
suit-dress of non-crushable "crick-
et" in either rasberry, Kelly green,
or royal blue, is the ideal thing to

to the academic field alone.:. Re-
markable facilities are available for
all sorts of play groups. Woodwork,
nature study, carving and Boy Scout,
Troop and Scout training, are among
the many recreational features of-
fered. Miss Ketchum, who is the
head of the social service division at
the hospital, said that the real im-
portance of the play activity lies in
the fact that it provides the child
with an outlet for his energy. He
learns not to be sensitive of differen-
tiation from other non-handicapped
children, which often presents a very
grave problem.
Self-Confidence Encouraged
Books are provided to each child
from the Galen's Book Cart which
is wheeled around to each bed. For
those who are able to walk around by
themselves, there is a well-equipped
library accessible to the children.
During warm weather, beds are taken
out on the sun porch; and a program
is also provided for the children out of
doors. Many of the articles which
are made by the children are used as
gifts which they send home to par-
The entire program is an attempt
to teach the child to develop self-
confidence and thus be in no way
maladjusted in a return to normal,
every-day life in the community, Miss
Ketchum said.

alone as a sun-back dress.
Just right for afternoons when you
want to dress up is q jumper dress.
The skirt is printed over a copen
background and is cable pleated. The
blouse is white dotted swiss; with lace
trimming the collars and cuffs.
Linen is always a favorite among
summer materials. One. which we
know you would like very much is in
white, with a navy trimming. The
neck has a navy insert resembling
the sea, and is trimmed with white
rope. The border on the bottom of
the dress is of this same sea-like de-
sign; and has a ship anchored to it
with white rope.
And then there's pique which never
fails to produce a crisp look no mat-
ter how warm the weather. One we
like very much has a ballet-full skirt,
a high neckline with a tiny collar, ;a
black ; belt, buttons down the front.
This concludesour forecast, so
merry warm weather to you.
