however, realized the necessity of the
committee and chairman and an-
nounced Miss Potter's appointment.

To Handle Publicity

Lantern Night
Was Big Event
10 Years Ago
"The greatest of all Michigan tra-
ditions for women" says The Daily of
1929 in referring to Lantern Night
which will be held Thursday, marking
over a decade of the existence of this.
annual march of Michigan women.
Lanterns Are Symbolical
The lanterns for which the occa-
sion is named have been used every
year. Their passing from the hands
of the seniors to the juniors is sym-
bolic of the juniors entering upon
the last year of their University.
careers. Each lantern is symbolical
of the torch of college days which is
kept aglow by this custom.
Explicit directions giving the de-
tail of the line of march were print-
ed for days ahead of the actual cele-
bration that year so that every under-
graduate woman might know the sig-
nificance of whistles which were
used to direct the march.
The line of march formed "next to
the gate on the Hospital side of
Observatory Street" instead of in
front of the Library where it now
forms. Seniors passed under flowered
hoops held by the sophomores.
Colored Jackets Were Worn
More color was added by the wear-
ing of W.A.A. jackets which were an
innovation that year. The underclass
leaders also wore colored jackets
representing their class, yellow for the
juniors, red for the sophomores, and
green for the freshmen. The aides
were dressed in white.
A supper was held as part of the
festivities and the Freshman Pageant
was performed before the march took
New Committee

mittee which will be placed in charge
of arrangements for the dancing
classes will begin at noon today and
will continue through . until noon
Thursday, Ella Stowe, '40, vice-presi-
dent of the League, announced yester-
Miss Stowe, who will be in charge
of the committee, will interview ap-
plicants from 3 p.m. to, 5 p.m. .Fri-
day in the Undergraduate Office. She
stressed the fact that it is unneces-,
sary for students to have dancing
ability to qualify for the committee
since it will not be doing the teaching.

Tarty Line
By the Neighbor
"Be good fellows while you may, for tomorrow may bring sorrow so
tonight let's all be gay"-"Drink a Highball at Nightfall" might have been
written in honor of last weekend so well does it express
pits general mood.
Being "good fellows" over at the Pi Phi formal Fri-
day night we saw Barb Benedict and Jim Savage .
Lillian Zimmerman and John Hoppin appeared to be
having a "hoppin"' good time. Exams seemed to be the
farthest thing from the minds of Jane Nussbaum and Ellis
Wunsch, while Betty Spangler and Neil Levison were
admiring the view from the porch of the country club.
Teeter-Totters Were Popular...
Over at the Phi Epsilon Pi house . . . we saw Jean
Brodie and Ed Jaffee playing jacks . . . waiting their turn at the teeter
totters were Betty Stiglitz and Harold Weinstock . . . Seen in a chic bonnet
was Nell Taylor, while her date, Johnny Sykes, was a picture of sartorial
splendor in red-checked rompers . . . 'Twas a baby party!
Got over to the Washtenaw Country Club just before curfew . . . just
time enough to get a glimpse of Ruth Warren and Chuck Deutsch leaving
the Phi SigmaDelta formal. Trying to get a taxi were Elaine Goldstein and
Ray Engelman.
Saturday we spent the day dodging cloudbursts at the track meet .
Chamber of Commerce insists it was just a heavy fog. Down at the fair-
grounds the sportin' blood of Ann Arbor witnessed the Crop and Saddle
horse show. In the drill we saw Yvonne Westrate, Nancy Chapman and
Maxine Baribeau. Eyeing the blue ribbons were Virginia Barrows and
Janet Hiatt.
'Three Little Fishes' Are Getting Around...
Marion Conde and Jim Stadler were trying to get the orchestra to
play "Three Little Fishies" when we popped in at the Alpha Delta Pi formal
. . . on the negative were Phyllis Hoffmeyer and Chet Newcomb . . .
P.S. The ayes had it! Mildred MacArthur and Bill Darnton just stood by
and glowered.
The three "piscatorial" pests seemed to be getting around for over at
the Helen Newberry dinner-dance, Muriel Hess and Frank Southton were
dancing it . . . also Charlotte Wyss and Ward Johnson. Caroline Den-
field and Bill Kensell were looking "purty" for the photographers, while
Helen Ackles and Giff Cossar were busy talking to the chaperons.
A.E. Phi's Trek To Huron Hills ..
Out at the Huron Hills Country Club . . . which we finally found
after landing in a few pastures . . . we saw Shyrle Imber and Chuck Col-
man. 'Twas the A. E. Phi spring formal . . . and Mim Szold and Al Lieber-
mann seemed to be enjoying it muchly. Over in a corner we saw the old
engagees Madelaine Kaufman and Bob
Kann, and Ruth Jacobson and Harry
Bloch laughing over Ruth's passport pic-
ture. Talking about pictures . . . Bob.
Gach was having a hard time getting
Dorie Bladen and Dick Posmatur into the
group picture, seems the lady doesn't
like flashlights.
Hopping into our "trusty? Model T" we
managed to wheeze out to Barton Hills
. . .to the Kappa Delt dinner dance.
Seems we got there too late for the after-dinner singing but they say that
Jim George, guest of Marjorie McCoy gave quite a rendition of "Shortnin'
Bread." One guest didn't feel very happy when "Hail to the Victors" was
sung . . . Steve Luther, Purdue track star, looked properly squelched
while his date, Florence Rogers, gloated. Dick Dick (no I'm not stuttering)
performed a couple of parlor tricks with a glass of water . . . Helen Nutting
and Stan Eldred didn't seem to appreciate his efforts . . . even the best of
us make mistakes sometime and Stan and Helen were treated to an un-
expected shower.

On Orientation

Rules For Fall Are Read;
Replacements N a m e d
For Advisory Positions,
The meeting of the orientation ad-
vsiers for next fall was held yesterday
at the League. Prof. P. E. Bursley
spoke to the 58 advisers and 54 as-
sistant advisers present at the meet-
Professor Bursley stressed the im-
portant of orientation advisers as
leaders for the freshmen and transfer
women. He stated that the most im-
portant job of the advisers is to fa-
miliarize the freshmen with the cam-'
pus and to act as big sisters to them.
A year-round contact of advisers and
freshmen women will be emphasized
in the 1939-40 orientation program.
Absentee Advisers Dropped

day's meeting, the following women

'41; Nancy Gould, '42, is to be re-
placed by Jean Rakestraw, '42; Edith
Lynch, '41 is to be replaced by Mar-
jorie Polumbaum, '42 and Jane Pink-
erton, '41, is to be replaced by Mar-
garet Hubbard, '41, of Group 82B.
Change Of Address Important
Advisers will receive the list of
names of women in their group dur-
ing the summer. A change of ad-
dress must be reported to Miss
Matthews, who may be reached by
addressing the Undergraduate Office
of the Leagueor by calling Mary Mar-
garet Meloche, '40, of Ann Arbor.
Miss Mathews read the supplemen-
tary rules for Orientation Advisers
which stressed the making of personal
contacts with the freshmen women
and gave the schedule for Orientation
Week next fall. Miss Matthews stat-
ed that the theme of the 1939-40
orientation will be that of "Rushing
you for Michigan."
