Dance, May 20
Bill Gail's Band To Play
For Graduate Formal
The first annual Graduate Spring
Formal will be held Saturday, May
20 from 9 to 12 p.m. in the Assembly
Hall of the Rackham Building. The
lance climaxes the year's social pro-
gram for graduate students which
has been under the direction of the
Graduate Student Council.
Robert Cleveland, Grad., chairman
of the dance committee has an-
nounced that there will be no cor-
sages worn at the dance. .The Coun-
cil plans to present each guest with
flowers at the beginning of the dance
as favors. Bill Gail's orchestra will
play for the affair.
The ticket sale for the dance is to
be limited to 125 couples as an-
nounced by Eleanor Bale, Grad., tic-
ket chairman. These are now on sale
and may be purchased at the infor-
mation desk at the Rackham Build-
ing. All graduate students are in-
vited to attend, including those who
are not affiliated with the Horace
H. Rackham School of Graduate
Studies, but who have graduate stand-
ing in their individual departments.

tending the dance need have this

If there's anything which irks me,
it's to hear some part of an older

Four Years An Asset
What they've gotten out of those
four years depends on the individual.
The most important thing, it seems
to me, is not whether they've learned
to appreciate the 'arts,' can quote
Shakespeare, or recognize Bach in-
stantly, but whether they're happy
with what they have gotten. It's fool-
ish to try to fit every man into the
student's hole-a higher purpose, in
my opinion, is that his four years

The central committee has added
several novel innovations to make f ' '

ler, '39, chairman of the publicity
committee. The tentative theme for
the decorations is a "Symphony in

symbols against silver back-drops

Colognes Are Cool And Fresh
What could be more refreshing af-
ter a hot day than a cooling shower
and a thorough dousilig with a spicy
cologne before dressing for an eve-
Ting engagement? The cosmetic
manufacturers have recognized this
need and have put a large variety of
products on the market that are not-
able for their cool freshness and
their subtile lingering qualities.
The distinction between toilet wa-
ters and colognes ought to be made
as theysare often confused. A toilet
water is a fragrant liquid while a
cologne is all of this plus alcohol
which gives it a quick drying and
therefore cooling property. This lat-
ter is more desirable during the hot
months as it tones the skin and gives
one a pepped-up sensation.
Floral scents are the most popu-
lar for summer and come in both in-
dividual and mixed odors. Large bot-
tles of spring or summer garden flow-
er mixtures are on display in sets so
that they may be chosen each day ac-
cording to your mood. With many of
these sets atomizers are included for
a more economical and subitle result
from their application. All of the
better colognes and toilet waters have
been compounded so they may be lib-
erally applied with little fear of an
overwhelming result in spreading
great clouds odf perfumed air about
When bath talc is included in the
pre-date ritual the scent of the
powder must be the same as that of
your cologne. Though all hot weath-
er perfumes are light and usually
floral in odor it seems to be a good
plan to avoid a conflict of smells
where ever possible. Thus, gar-
denia for both talcum and cologne
with perfume if you wish might be a
good combination. Lilac, sweet pea,
lilly of the valley and any number of
combinations of these and other flow-
er scents may be purchased in all
types of products.
Summer time above all others is the
time to remember those fastidious
habits which mark a lady. Don't for-
get them this year!
