Comes April every twelve months and during it each day brings the,
announcement of another engagement. And as the days roll by June and
the red-letter day grows nearer while the daze of the girl in question grows
more thick and hazy. April showers and May ones too, bring something be

..1' down upon them as they rush madly from luncheons to1
6eas and surprise showers. The proud bridegroom toi
be is not usually included in this social whirl and he's1
usually glad of it.,
The initial spark that sets off the round of these
social affairs is the engagement party where the par-
ents of Miss June Bride make known the forthcoming
marriage of their daughter. Whether it be a tea for
her close friends or a large evening affair, she shows
herself to be a carefully groomed and sophisticated
young woman fully capable of taking her place among the "young married
The engagement is announced in a novel way that attests to the ingenu-
ity of Miss Bride (to be). The message may;be concealed in tiny nosegays
of spring flowers presented to each guest or it may be announced in a host
of other charming and usual ways. But, whatever the method, the spirit
of gaiety pervades the party and is carried over into the local evening
paper where a large picture of June appears with the formal announce-
ment by hei parents.
Within a few days June's friends have begun plans for a series of
showers that will include linen showers, glass, china and silver ones, and
kitchen showers as well as many personal ones where she will re-
ceive the luxurious pieces of lingerie she has always yearned for. ,
One of the first things that busy Miss Bride does is to choose ,
her silver and china patterns so that pieces may be added by gifts e
from her friends in order that her set will be completed more
quickly. Simplicity is the note of these household gifts as well as
the more personal ones she will receive for her own use. Throughout the
weeks previous to her marriage and even the wedding of this season's "Miss
June Bride" will have simplicity as.the dominating force of all her plans.

they could see little sense to sitting up
all night and through most of the
next day to pass laws.
"It looks a little childish to me,"
Mrs. Stockman said. "I don't think
the legislature is very business like.
We could have done most of this work
weeks ago."
Miss Thompson said she would not
go so far as to say she was "disil-

However, Olds said, ample room is
being planned for the double group-
ing, and those organizations wishing
to be together must make arrange-,
ments between themselves and then
notify Olds not later than Wednes-
day. Since no booth space will "be
given to a fraternity having less than
10 couples attending, the exact num-
ber should be known by Wednesday.
Each Group To Supply Furniture
Each group attending must furnish
one divan and two easy chairs. The
committee wishes to announce that
the following organizations have sig-
nified their desire for booths: Acacia,

'Baby Bob)' Is Cool Hair
Style For Hot Weather
Warm weather misery once again
raises the question of what to do with
that long and growing mop of curls
(natural or permanented). Patrons of
the Ann Arbor beauty shops have
found one style that solves the prob-
lem, and are holding on to it for
both comfort and beauty.
The "Baby Bob" trend sends oper-
ators running for the shears, to am-
putate those trailing strands about
three inches from the scalp-all
over. At this point curls will either
naturally crop up all over the head,
or they can be induced to do so by
subtle methods! Featured in Detroit,
this style has spread rapidly over
Ann Arbor with the approach of bath-
ing caps, sun, and the consequent
yen for a new hair-do.

Staebler Brennan, who has just re-
linqushed her desk as women's editor
of The Daily. Completely truthful is
her statement that newspaper work
retarded none of her other activities
-as evidenced at Senior Supper when
"Sis" blew out the candle and openly
assumed the title of Mrs. Brennan.

Jean Drake had more fun as junior
editor of the Ensian, extracting news
from the various schools on campus,
than she had being women's editor
this past year. "Making school news
interesting was my toughest job," she
asserted, but that only added zest to
the assignment..
Sports And Reading Neglected
The amount ji work demanded of
an editor varied from day to day, and
so Jean managed to keep up with
other activities. Reading and sports
were the only two phases of college
life that, were slightly neglected
while Jean was busy pounding out
copy. "It's a comfortable let-down,",
she said of her present resigned status.
Carolyn Ross, who is rounding up
her work~ as women's editor of the
Gargoyle, considers working on any
campus activity as a savoring of a
"small edition" of the greater world.
One meets the same types of people,
the same problems, the same preju-
dices. "It is not only ability that
counts. by any means," one has to
face the fact that pull, luck, person-
l ality are important.
Gargoyle Excellent Experience
Carolyn, who expects to pursue a.
career along the line of her Gargoyle
achievements, realises that work on
that magazine is excelleft experience.
The ribbing of "Perspectives" in the
satire issue of the humor sheet was
fun, thinks this lady editor.
Her greatest disappointment dur-
ing her magazine career was the
failure of the Garg staff's plans to
throw a dance with some of their
illustrius alumni. A small matter
of the cost of launching the affair
