O}f Assembly
Independent Organization
Was Formed In 1934
To Stimulate Interest
Assembly, an. organization for nOn-
affiliated women on the campus, was
formed under the sponsorship of
-Senior Society in the spring of 1934.
The constitution was drawn up at this
time, and plans for the organization
were made, but it was not until the
following fall that Assembly became
an active group.
The purpose of Assembly, as stated
by Senior Society at the time of its.
formation, is "to organize non-af-
filiated women and to stimulate their
interest in campus activities, both so-1
cial and scholastic." Assembly was;
also formed with the view of giving
unaffiliated women equal power and
representation with Panhellenic As-
Uociation on the League Board of.
' ~Zone' WereOrganized
With this purpose in mind, nine
League house zones were organized
and each zone and dormitory sent
temporary representatives to the first
meeting of Assembly, called on Oct.
9, 1934 by Eleanor Peterson, '35,
president of Senior Society.
The first Assembly Banquet was
held Dec. 3, 1934, at the League, under
the chairmanship of Betty Hill, '35.
MVlore than 400 non-affiliated women
attended, and three scholastic awards
were given at this time. Ilene Brun-
son, .'35, Mary Elizabeth Lun~y, '36,
artd Voltairine Hersch, '37, received
these .awards.
Senior ociety tapped 10 new mem-
S hbers at this banquet, varying from
their usual time and procedure of
Pnublished 'Crackerjack'
The first Assembly Ball was held
March 8, 1935 in the League Charlie'
Agnew and his orchestra provided
the music, and Georgina Karlson, '35,
was in charge of the dance. There
was a sell-out of tickets for the ball,
establishing a precedent which has
been carried out at every Assembly
"Crackerjack, a bi-weekly bulletin
of the Assembly activities, was pub-
lished throughout the year, and copies
were sent to the dormitories and
league houses. However, this publi-
cation was distontinued the follow-
ing year.
Maureen Kavanagh, '36, was elect-
ed the next president of Assembly.
The 1935 banquet was held Dec. 2,
with Miss Talsma as general chair-
man. Scholarship awards were given
and Senior Society tapped five wom-
en at this time.
Assembly Balls Given
Johnny Hamp and his band played
for the second Assembly Ball, which
was held March 13, 1936. Mary Ellen
Heitsch, '37, was in charge of the
ball. Mary Andrew, '37, was elected
president next year.
Miss Heitsch was chairman of the
Assembly Banquet held Dec. 7, 1936.
President Ruthven was the principal
speaker. He offered a book, a can of
tomato juice and a lipstick to the
women who wrote the best essays on
the true objectives of college life. The
prizes were never given, as no essays
were turned in3.
The third Assembly Ball was held
March 5, 1937. Janet Karlson, '38,
was chiairman, and Johnny Hamp'
and his band again furnished the.,
music. The result of the spring elec-
tions was Miss Jesperson, president;
Miss Karlson, vice-president and Mi-
riam Sanders, '38, secretary-treasurer.
Last fall Assembly oprened its year's
program by issuing bulletins to all

freshman women, extending a wel-
come to the new students and ac-;
quainting them with the organiza-
tion of Assembly.°
Independent Week, sponsored by
Senior Society and Assembly, was
held from Nov. 1 to 8, for the purpose
of "stimulating interest, geniality and.
friendship among all women on cam-
pus and of acquainting them with the -
League as a social center and club-.
house." During this week tours were
made to all the league houses and
dormitories by members of Senior,
Society and Assembly Board.

gown or a short date dress. The main
thing to remember is. that your fur
must be bulky, since smooth furs are
passe for the present.
If you are planning to wait till Octo-
ber to get your skunk Coat, here are
a few hints on how to know good
and bad skunk. The natural skunk has
a slight brownish cast to the fur and
is more silky. The skin, underneath, is
white and soft. The tipped skunk,
which is not quite as expensive, but
has the same durability, is not a
dyed skunk. for the skin is still white.

Wear Hair Long For Campus At JACOBSON'S!
But Swept U p High For EveningI

Hair-do Simple In Classes;
For Formals Coiffure
Will Be More Elaborate
A serious problem confronts the
campus woman this year, what with
all the new hair do's that have arisen
almost overnight. Shall it be up or
shall it be down, that is the question.
One of the campus beauty salons
has classified the college hair styles
into three categories, Namely: for
class wear, for teas, football games
and informal dances, and for the for-
mal dances.
On campus the theme is simplicity,
for fancy frills and gee-gaws are im-
practical and far from being smart.
The page boy and semi-page are out
this year but if they are becoming by,
all means wear them for every one
must look her best at all times. The;

is still in good taste and softens the
lines of the face. It is easy to keep
and gives a fresh appearance after
the night before.
Long Bobs For Campus
Long bobs are the typical campus
style, whether they be worn in rolls
or curls. The only ornament in the
hair for class wear is a ribbon. A
perky bow lost in the maze of curls
adds that feminine touch. No matter
what, don't wear ear rings on cam-
pus. That, of course, means, don't
wear your hair up even if you do
want to be the latest fashion plate;
it just isn't good taste at Michigan.
For spectator sporty affairs, foot-
ball games, teas, and informal dances,
the Ann Arbor student can be a little
more elaborate. There are several
ways of doing the hair for these occa-
sions. Sweep the hair back from the
face and curl it under and up in
soft rolls, leaving the back in a soft
row, or even two neck curls. This is
easy to keep and can be combed down
for classes on Monday. Another popu-
ar style is to brush the sides and top
up, into a bevy of soft curls and
leave the back long and soft at the
nape of the neck. This is the modified
version of the new up hair do's.
Up Swept Hair Good For Teas
If you feel that you do want your
hair up for teas and informal dances,
wear it up but don't be extreme.
Flower forth in the so-called semi-
dress coiffure, in which the crown is
up and the hair in back is brushed
up and allowed to speel over tortoise
shell combs in soft curls. Don't sweep
it all the way up to the crown but
raise it just off the neck line to show
the curve of the neck. This is most
becoming and is not as severe as
some of the more drastic styles that
are running riot this season.
When the formal dress is on and
you're ready for that extra super
date, then let your imagination go.
That is the time to wear the very
latest in coiffures. Up goes the hair
in a big way. Sweep it to the crown,
all of it, and make a nest of highly
piled hair, then top it off with an or-
chid or gardenia, preferably real, but
artificial flowers are just as good and
the budget always comes first. For
evening the styles are quaint and de-
cidedly old fashioned to go with the
hoops and strapless gowns.
Another good style, 'less radical,
but most becoming, is to catch the
side locks up in back and let them
fall in ringlets till they meet the
long curled, rather than rolled, back
hair. At the top of the crown tuck a
Jeweled combs are grand with the
hair up, but if you wear flowers use
the plain tortoise Shell combs.

But we do know she bores into
