To Secure Aid

Committee To Instruct
Sub-Average Students
Alberta Wood, '40, has been ap-
pointed head of the Tutorial System
of the League for next fall, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Dorothy Ship-
man, '40, president of the League.
Miss Wood will be in charge of a
committee whose job will be to help
the freshmen whose records show
that they are having difficulty in
their studies. The committee will
contact various honor societies, such
as Alpha Lambda Delta, Wyvern,
Mortar Board, Scroll and Senior So-
ciety, to ask for volunteers. The lat-
ter will give one or two hours a week
to help the freshmen. Their work
will probably begin soon after the five
weeks' marks come out.
This year, Miss Wood was presi-
dent of Wyvern, and played a leading
role in Junior Girls Play. She was
recently appointed treasurer of the
League, has been a member of the
social committee and theatre-arts
committee, and was a transfer orien-
tation adviser.
In her freshman year Miss Wood
was general chairman of Freshman
Project, and later she was a member
of the finance committee for Soph
Cabaret, in which she was also in
the chorus. As a - member of the
theatre-arts committee of the League,
she was in charge of properties, and
also worked on the candy-booth com-
mittee. Miss Wood was a member of
the publicity committee of WAA for
two years, and was a member of the
swimming team.

Band To Lead
Lantern Night
i pO -j
Seniors, Holding Lanterns,
To Start From Library
And Go To Palmer Fieldl
Directions for the Lantern Night
line of march, which will take place
tomorrow evening, were announced'
today by Florence Brotherton, '40A.
chairman of the line of march.
The procession will form at 7:30
p m. in front of the General Library.
The seniors, dressed in caps and
gowns and carrying lighted lanterns,
will line up in pairs, with underclass-
men in single file on either side.
The march will proceed to Palmer

Upon arriving at the Field, the tradi-
tional block M will be formed and the
first stanza of "The Yellow and Blue"
will be sung. After this the Lantern
Night Sing will begin.
The five senior women who will
lead the line of march and also the
formation of the block "M" will be
Jean Holland, Sybil Swartout, Betty
Jane Mansfield, Stephanie Parfet
and Norma Curtis.
Twenty-four dormitories and sor-

"Perspective" writes the conclud-
ing chapter in the year's literary his-
tory when its final issues appears
Sunday under a completely new staff
of editors.
Taking the place of the unsuccess-
ful "Contemporary" which collapsed
a year ago, the magazine seems to
have found a more satisfactory medi-
um in the newspaper type of publica-
tion and distribution with The Daily.
That can hardly account for the un-
usual success with which it has met
this year, however.
Perhaps it's because "Perspectives"
offers an outlet for some of the lit-
erary genius which insists on bud-
ding on the Michigan campus. Cer-
tainly the quality of the essays,
stories, and poetry which appeared
during the year indicates that the
function of Perspectives is a very
real one.
The editorial board is composed
of the heads of the three depart-
ments-essay, poetry, and fiction.
They follow no definite policy re-
garding the type of writing they ac-
cept-whether pre-historic in style
or showing a strong leaning to John
dos Passos-but it has to be good!
Only one thing remains-women
consistently ignore it, the editorial
end, that is. For the first time in
history, Michigan's literary puiblica-
tion has an all male staff-and they
don't like it!
The engagement of Dorothy Mar-
garet Cox, '40, daughter of Mr.and Mrs.
E. J. Cox of Detroit, to Karl H. Beck,
'39M, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Beck,
of Detroit, was made known yester-
day. Miss Cox is affiliated with Zeta
Tau Alpha sorority. Mr. Beck is affili-
ated with Alpha Kappa Lambda fra-
ternity, and is a member !of Phi Chi
medical fraternity. He will serve his
.internship .at }Columbia Hospital in
Mr. and Mrs. E. 'G. Staebler, of
William St., announce the engage-
ment of their daughter, Doris, '37Ed,
to Elmer F. Mahlke, '33E, son of Mr.
and Mrs. 0. L. Mahlke of Montgom-
ery Ave. The wedding will be July 1.

mittee of the League will continue to-

Flowered prints in practical cotton fabrics, like the one shown above
are proving tremendously popular with young women of a romantic
turn of mind. Equally perfect for the Fair, the West, or a weekend at
the family hangout on a lake, these dresses can be washed and starched.

The nearness of summer with its
many occasions where a formal is
needed is appalling all of us. Country
club dances, garden parties, wedding
receptions and a host of other affairs
both in the city and at resorts, where
the competition is keen and where
the dress makes the woman, are near-
ly upon us.
All of this brings up thoughts of
What will be the most appropriate
and unusual costume for each and
every occasion. Cottons and sheer
washable materials are being shown
more than fragile chiffons this spring.
Both demure and the more energetic
sort of summer formals are in good
Check gingham and printed piques
are the leades. One very smart sum-
mer formal of gingham is of deep bur-
gundy checks with a very full, bias
cut skirt which gives the wearer grace
during the season where constant
wearing of sports clothes tends to
bring out the tom-boy in all of us.
Th'e waist of this dress is cut on little
girl lines, and has short puffed sleeves
and a Peter Pan collar of white pique
hat matches the edging of the sleeves.
Another dress of printed pique has
vivid fish and deep sea creatures
wimming around the material so that
he total effect is one of varied shades
of greens and blue-greens with grace-
ul sea-weed figures intermingled be-
ween the fishy characters. The skirt
s full, of course, and the top is cut
n very simple lines that go straight.
around the bust with wide straps over
he shoulders. A tailored jacket of
he same material may be worn for
dinners and for cooler' dancing eve-
rings under the stars.
One of the most unique and clever

dresses to make its appearance this
spring is of a coarse, unbleached mus-
lin with dozens of Hollywood stars'
signatures covering the material.
These are of a maroon shade which
is carried out in the jacket. A full
skirt is topped by a drapped bodice
that crosses in the front and goes
over the shoulders in wide straps. The
jacket is quilted and has the most un-
usual and comforting feature of large
pockets that will hold everything from
hankies to compacts and large cigar-
ette cases. The .line of the jacket is
around the natural waist although the
pockets :ang down several inches be-
low this level over the hips.

Helen Jepson and Gladys Swar-
thout, honorary members of Sig-
ma Alpha Iota, were guests at a din-
ner given by the society during their
recent visit in Ann Arbor.
Entertained along with Miss Jep-
son and Miss Swarthout were Eliza-
beth Wysor, Thelma Amansky, Elsie
Hilger, Edna Phillips, and Marjorie
Tyre. Miss Jepson and Miss Swarth-
out were presented with corsages.
Miss Wysor, contralto, attended
with Mrs. Hugh Beebe, her hostess.
Miss Amansky is of the University
Choral Union. Miss Hilger, Miss Phil-
lips, and Miss Tyre of the Phila-
delphia Orchestra are also honorary
members of Sigma Alpha Iota.
French Club Plans

nual spring banquet -at 6:15 p.m. to-
