Reception To Be First Event On League Calendar For S


Dance Classes
Are Scheduled
In Two Groups
Famed 'Watermelon Cut,'
Week-End Parties Are
Among Season's Plans
The League will be i center of so-
cial activity this summer, as it is
through the school year, with Miss
Ethel McCormick, social director of
the League, in charge, as adviser to
the women students planning the
The first important event which
will start the Summer Session off is
the annual Summer School Recep-
tion for all students and faculty. Last
year his was held in the Rackham
Building the first week of the new
session. The place for this year's re-
ception has not yet been decided up-
on. The purpose of the reception is
to allow members of the faculty and
students to become better acquainted.
To Hold Dance Classes
Dancing classes will be sponsored
again this year by the League, and
there will be both beginning and in-
termediate sections. Another feature
of the summer which proved its popu-
larity last year will be the evenings
of old-fashioned country dancing,
where square dances and peasant
styles will be the entertainment. Ad-
mission to these is free.
Also being planned is a series of
bridge lessons, for which there will be
a small charge, as there will for the
dancing classes. There will be a spe-
cial event for southern students, too,
toward the end of the session-the
now-famous "Water-Melon Cut."This
is to be held in the League garden,
where the water-melons are cut end-
to-end and eaten out of the hand.-
Women To Be Hostesses
Tea-dances will probably be a regu-
lar part of the summer schedule, at
which the women will act as host-
esses. Miss McCormick stated that
these have been extremely successful
In past years, and that the chance to
meet new people is always welcomed
by everyone.
Friday and Saturday night dances
will continue as usual,. and various
clubs and societies may hold private
Sunday night suppers in the garden
of the League.
Summer school students are urged
to participate in activities around
carpus, as there is a wealth of en-
tertainment that is going to be off-
ered this year, Miss McCormick said.
The last event of the season will be
the anual Graduate Breakfast,
which is held the last week of the
session, and corresponds to Com-
'mencement for those who will receive
their degrees in summer school.
Will Have Same Hours
Hours for women attending the
Summer Session will be the same as
for the fall session with the exception
of week nights when the time has
been extended to 11 p.m. Graduates
may make special arrangements to
stay out beyond this hour.

Moping On The Mall
By Meandering Minnie
We just figured out why one doesn't take as many hours in summer
school. It's so one can have more hours for social life, which we think is a
jolly thought.
A Bang Of A Start For Social Life . .
And just to see that things start off with a bang and a wallop, there
will be a Summer School Reception the first week of the session. Last year
it was held at th Rackham Building, and although the plans aren't com-
for this year it will no doubt be a gala affair.
- Then for those people who are more ambitious
than sitting and coking or simply sitting, there wil
be dances every Friday and Saturday at the League
by way of lending a social light to every week. And
.iust in case summer studes want to brush up on
their dips and darts, there will be dancing classes
at the League.
The League goes rustic again in the "good old
summer time." Old-fashioned country dancing will
be featured with "one, two, three, Turkey Wing" and all the other intricacies
of the best of square dancing as a part of the evening's entertainment.
By way of variety-something in the dancing line-will be the tea
canoes with bevies of beauties to act as hostesses which makes the possibility
of a good time just practically certain.
Bridge For Light And Airy Days, . .
For those who demand their enjoyment in less active ways than on the
ballroom floor, bridge is a "delightful diversion for dreamy days." (Un-
quote.) Lessons will be given this summer to encourage perfection in the
art of bidding and buying.
"Yeah Man!" Nary a summer passes these days without the "Water-
melon Cut" for all good southerners who attend the Summer Session. The
League garden is the scene, and the entertainment,-well,
if you can't deduct that from the name-"We just ain't say-
Sunday night hasn't been neglected even in plans for
things to do. The garden of the League will be open for private ,"
Sunday night suppers which seems a delightful spot---no end.
Villains will stalk and heros will survive as actively this
summer as during the winter due to the efforts of the Michi-
gan Repertory Players. Playgoers can follow the activities of "le theatre"
without leaving "dear Ann Arbor town."
To climax the summer comes the annual graduate breakfast, the last
week of school, and then the curtain falls on "School days, school days,",
for a few short weeks.
What with all the planned activities which will fill the summer school-
ites' days and nights, we have come to the conclusion that Ann Arbor in
the summer must be twice as good as Ann Arbor in the spring, and not Just
'because it's twice as hot either.
Summer Has Its Individual Pastimes . . .
Then there are things one cando in the summer which, just don't fit
in at any other time of year. For instance all those picnics that get post-
poned in the spring on account of rain come in the summer-or did you
know that? There are picnickers and picnickers-those who brave the
elements and those who don dark glasses and sunbonnet, carry sunburn
lotion in one hand and mosquito-bite salve in the other. One and all claim
it is these pastime of pastimes, however, and well worth the effort of getting
up a lunch, finding an appropriate spot, and contending
with the antses and beeses for supremacy.
The athletically inclined are in their element at sum-
mer school as far as individual sports are concerned. What
could be jollier than a round of golf under a summer sky
, with the nice warm sun beating down and birdies in the
cup as well as in the trees. Tennis enthusiasts will hold
out for their game, however, and the courts promise to be
a popular rendezvous for lovers of the game. Cool waters
and summer days combine to make swimming the most
popular for summer school sportsters.
For people who want to go places and do things there
are bicycling, roller skating, and horseback riding. Then Ann Arbor has one
means of transportation which is relaxation and fun all rolled into one.
Canoeing on the Huron brings thoughts of moonlit nights and smooth
waters as well as sunny days with a picnic lunch at the end of the trip.
Time of year supreme-Ah, Summer!

Religion Will Be

man, Counselor in Religious Educa-

Special provision has been made
for visiting clergymen and other di-
rectors of religious education to at-
tend any or all of the classes without
Classes will be given as follows:

Gingham Stages Comeback;
Stripes, Plaids Lead Fashion

The dominating note of campus
clothes for summer school is sim-
plicity itself. Washable cottons and
nubby linens of the non-crushable
variety are both cool and in good
taste for warm weather wear. Stripes,
plaids and checks are the fashion
leaders of the year and the Leauty of
it is that they come in gingham of
the same crisp kind that grandma
used to wear when she was sweet 16.
One very good looking dress of this
sort is two-piece with little navy aud
white checks. The skirt is of the
becoming circular style while the
top zips up the front and has a small
Peter -Pan collar of white pique. A
similar dress has a gored skirt and
simple collarless top with bright red
buttons marching down the front to
contrast the more sombre navy part-
ner of the checks.
Nubby finished acetates are being
shown in a multitude of new styles.
Those who prefer darker shades will
enjoy a dress of black with narrow
white stripes in this material. It has
a thin black patent leather belt and
white bolero to slip on for cool eve-
For attendance at the popular
summer plays something a little more
dressy is required to be fashionable.
For this a dress of navy and white
combination might be chosen. The
blouse of one such model is white
chiffon with dainty lace ruffles

Must Approve Residences
j Duringthe Summer Session Jordan
Hall, Helen Newberry Residence, and
Betsy Barbour House will be open
o graduate women only. All women
not registered in Graduate School are
required to live in residences ap-
proved by the Office of the Dean of
Women. A list of such residences may
be obtained from that office.

around the neck. A tiny navy gross-
grain ribbon has been run through it
to add the lingerie touch which is so
good this year. The skirt is of navy
crepe and is very full and circular.
