Tarting Line
By the Neighbor
Dedicated to the Class of '39, we present this, our "Parting Line" in
the form of a resume of the leading social events of the past three years.
We arrived that September from rthe four corners of the earth, imbued
with a sense' of our own importance and ready to take anything in our
stride.tBig shots from high school, our egos received a
complete deflation when we walked down the diagonal
for the first time. Then orientation week began and we
lost that first horrible feeling of fear and loneliness.
October came, and with it the first football game.
That first festive weekend will never be forgotten . .
>ep rallies, fraternity house luncheons, chrysanthemums;
in the autumn sun . . the drum major . . . the fan-
fare of the bugles as the band marched on the field
. . and all. the thrills of our' first big game. Then
followed the first big formal of the year . . . Interfra-
ternity Ball. Chick Webb's orchestra played and it was held at the League.
Juniors Give Musical Revue .

Jan Garber and Jimmy Lunceford played at J-Hop and the I.M. Build-
ing was decorated in red in honor of St. Valentine. The Juniors gave a
music revue entitled "Sprize" and we were duly impressed and amused by
their terpischorean ability. Soph Prom took place that March and we all
danced to Herbie Kay.
The Burton Tower was still merely a jumble of white lines on blue paper,
and the English cabinet was trying to get Edward, married to a Greek
princess. Frosh Frolic came along at about this time, and
we got our first chance to be important . . . on central
committee for that event were Dorothea (Sis) Staebler,
Malcolm Levenson and Robert Pollard. Freshmen Fiesta
arrived a few weeks later with Jenny Peterson as Gen-
IC eral Chairman. We gave "Oz U" and B. J. Mansfield, Jean
Rheinfrank, Margaret Cram, Marian Smith, Marcia Con-
nell and Mary Wheat had leading roles.
Our sophomore year . . . the Union Formal in Novem-
ber . . . Panhell Ball with Anson Weeks' orchestra .
and Soph Cabaret under the efficient guidance of Chair-
man Barb Heath. Betty Lyon, Janet Fullenweider, Char-
lotte Poock were on central committee, and M. K. Adams, Mary Lavan, Jane
Lyon, Marjory Link and Betty Spangler took part in the floor show.
Edward made his farewell address . . . the carillon neared completion
and Fletcher Henderson and Charley Agnew were featured at Interfraternity,
Ball. That March the niors presented "Feather in: His Cap," and thls
freshmen gave "Rip Van Winkle" . . . Alberta Wood was general chair-
man and Frances Kahrs, Carrie Wallach, Anne Hawley, Annabel Dredge and
Glade Allen were on the central committee.
Swing Sessions Replace Afternoon Teas .. .
Stephanie Parfet was chairman of Panhell Ball. Jenny Peterson, Patty
Haff, Adele MacDonald were on central committee and Joe Sander's orches-
tra played. A little later came Soph Cabaret, "The Streets of Paris" with

New Mak eUp
For Hot Days
Is Light, Cool
More than any other summer for
a good many seasons the more prom-
inent cosmetic firms are producing
an entirely new and very attractive
line of hot weather cosmetics. Many
of these are designed on the new,
scientific principle of basic skin
health that comes from a good cir-
culation and internal health which
brings an inner glow, the basis of all
true beauty.
This new line of cosmetics also
works on the principle of skin tone
rather than merely applying layer
upon layer of greasy substances which
clog the pores and generally make
the skin incapable of breathing.
Heavy powder bases are useless over
a bad complexion although the health
giving rays of the summer sun will do
wonders for it if one is careful not
to take the sun in too large doses.
Most of these new products are in
the ,liquid form rather than of the
cream variety which usually contains
some sort of grease. They are doub-
ly valuable because their astringent
effects overcome the increased oili-
ness which is the bane of summer
time while the cooling part of the
preparations helps eliminate that
torrid flush which is so unbecoming
in hot weather.
Make-up for summer follows the
same trends of lotions and powder
bases in that it is notably light and
free from any of the harmful chemi-
cals that the new food and drug law
has recently condemned for use on
the skin.


Panhellenic Association, Assembly
and the WAA together manage to
touch just about every girl on cam-
pus. ° Stephanie Parfet, Betty Jane
Mansfield, and Norma Curtis have
had the jobs of keeping these or-
ganizations on a smooth running
"I believe that all girls are funda-
mentally the same," Miss Parfet said
in speaking of sorority and indepen-
dent women at Michigan. Although
unaffiliated girls have no obligations
to any house, Stephanie is still "com-
pletely sold" on the advantages of
sorority 'life. Used toplanning her
time, scheduling her work, Miss Par-
fet is now using her first free time
in college to play round upon round
of golf and then to lie in the sun.
Panhellenic is not merely an inter-
sorority council to draw- up rushing
rules; it endeavors to equalize rush-
ing opportunities among the various
houses, to break down any ill feeling
among those houses or between soror-
ity and. independent .women. Miss
Parfet said. Much stress is laid up-
on cooperation, with the rest of the
I campus in this organization.
"Working with people, both men
and women, is essential to any well-
rounded program," believes Norma
Curtis. At the WAA, opportunities
for numerous contacts, and programs
for spending spare time recreation-
ally, are provided for and urged upon
University women.

in '38 and '39 are Norma's pet enter-
prises. Running these affairs afford-l
ed her practical business experience'
as well as a wide field for ingenuity.i
No spare time for this former presi-i
dent of the WAA, even though her of-1
ficial duties are at an end, for Mortar
Board and Scroll will keep her busy
up to the very last minute.
"I have believed from my freshman,
year that happiness at college de-
pends not upon status as an indepen-
dent or sorority woman, but upon the
woman herself," asserted Betty Jane+
Mansf ield.
As retiring president of Assembly,
she states her opinion that the op-

portunities are equal; it is up to each
individual to make the most of them.
What Assembly does try to do, how-
ever, is to aid the independent to
enjoy the greatest pleasures, to get
the fullest values, out of her college
A firm believer in extra curricular
activities since her hightschool days,
Miss Mansfield asserts that partici-
pation in campus endeavors gives a
girl poise, and prepares her for the
social, as well as the business, aspects
of the future. No matter in what
type of position, women will have to
"meet people and get along with +
