Women Having Health, Wealth
And Spirit May Join Flying Club

"She floats through the air with
the greatest of ease" has become an
actual possibility for any student
wishing to learn how to fly, accord-
ing to Daniel R. Ranney, '40, presi-
dent of the recently organized Fly-
ing Club.
Yes, women are not only acceptable
but encouraged, stated the head of
the group, now composed of 20 men
and three women.
Requirements Few
The requirements are few: a physi-

Civil Aeronautics Authority planes
are used, and only eight hours of fly-
ing is necessary for solo work. Those
who start now may-be soloing by the
end of the semester, Ranney said.
He added that those whose aca-
demic pursuits made it possible for
them to start this spring are urged
to attend the meetings just the same,
and they may begin getting actual in-
struction next fall. The next meet-
ing will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wed-

Novel Play Suit
Offers Variety
In Picnic Garb
The clothes you wear can make or
break the time you are going to have
on picnics. There are hosts of clever
new suggestions that will brighten
up the landscape the minute they
appear on the horizon.
Overalls are one of them and be-
sides their adaptability for all occa-
sions, they have the double virtue of
being more or less mosquito-proof and
fine for a scramble up a tree which
someone is sure to dare you to make.
Pink ones with the sort of top that
may be with or without a shirt are
unique and comfortable for sunny
days and cool evenings. The color is
feminine but the style marks you as
a true woman of the great out-of-

in brighter and more modern prints
than ever. The Western plains in-

where scenes of cow-boys and bron-

spread liberally over the cloth. It
might be a good point out here that'

Art Ball Ticket Sale
Begins Tomorrow
Tickets for the Architect's Ball
which is to be held Friday, May 19,
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., go on sale to-
morrow at the Union desks and in the
office of the School of Architecture.
They are priced at $2 a couple.
An annual affair, it is the only
costume ball given on campus. The
theme this year is to be "Whirl of
Tomorrow." Costumes will be or-
iginal models of "The Clothes of
Tomorrow." Prizes will be awarded
for the most original costumes.
Richard Black, '39A and Edward
A. Luders, '39A, are co-chairmen for
the ball. K. Conrad August, '39A, is
in charge of the decorations, which
will feature caricatures of the faculty
and students.

Play suits with detachable skirts
might well be included in the must of
a picnic wardrobe. They may be
worn on campus to the last class of
the day from which one dashes off
to the country. Once out at the picnic
place the first sight of a baseball and
bat is the sign for the skirt shedding
with the consequent appearance of a
very clever play suit of shirt and
shorts matching the skirt. Bright ace-
tate prints, non-crushable linens and
coarse home-spuns are all comfort-
able materials from which you may
choose your new three-piece play

Chairman Requests
New Dance Aides
There will be a meeting for all wo-
men interested in becoming members
of the dancing class committee of the
League at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Un-
dergraduate offices, Ella Stowe, chair-I
man, 140, announced yesterday.
No experience in dancing is need-
ed, Miss Stowe said. At least one
representative from each dormitory
is requested to attend the meeting.
Alumna Is Entertained
At Shower By Sorority
Alpha Xi Delta gave a linen show-
er for Mrs. Ralph Erlewine Wednes-
day night at the chapter house. Mrs.
Erlewine, an alumna of the sorority,
was Phyllis Carey, '38, before her
marriage this spring.
The sorority also announces the
pledging of Arlene Whelpley, '41SM,
of - Buffalo, N.Y.,

has been flying for many years, has
never had an accident, which may
be taken as indicative of the degree
of safety which modern flying has
reached, she said.
Women who are interested are
urged to consider the fact that flying
togs are among the most attractive
of sports outfits.
Club Chooses Officers
La Sociedad De Hispanica, Span-
ish Club, has elected the following of-
ficers for the coming year: Robert L.
Vandenberg, '40, president; Daisy M.
Bihary, '40, vice-president; Florence
J. Young, '42, secretary; and Michael
Massa, '41, treasurer.

The approach of warm weather and summer vacation call for cool,
comfortable play togs. These styles are both practical and attractive
with their combinations of bright colors and designs. The striped silk
shirt is effectively worn with a plain pastel skirt, or a play suit of al=
over design is also appropriate. For picnics, bicycling, or spectator
sports, these costumes are necessities for every summer wardrobe.
