J-Hop, always the high-point in
Michigan's social life, gives promise'
of being the most exciting in years.

in attracting these delightful dam-

with due respect for your curiosity,
we might mention that they are

NewSki Club
Members To Receive Free
Instruction In Skiing
Campus women interested in form-
ing a ski club met Thursday after-
noon, The meeting opened with a
talk given by Charles Van Houten of
the University high school physical
education department.
Mr. Van Houten spoke before a
group of over 20 women on the tech-
nicalities of ski equipment and pre-
scribed the best gear for skiing in
Michigan. Six foot skis are best for
the lighter women skiers but lacings
and harnasses are useless without
standard square toed boots, he said.
Mr. Van Houten announced that
he could be found almost any hour of
the day in the Arboretum as long as
the snow lasts. He is an expert skier
and will give instruction to anyone
desiring it.
Betty-Lou Witters, '41, president of
the club, announced, that many new
skies and poles are available at the
Women's Athletic Building, but they
must be reserved ahead of time.
Meetings will take place at any time
of the day or week when members of
the club are skiing, with informal dis-
cussions following at the Athletic
Building, Miss Witters said.

Michigan women, whose cry for
years has been that 'he' always drags
from home come J-Hop, after freez-
ing her feet at the Coliseum and
wearing her out at swing sessions,
resign themselves to twiddling their'
thumbs February 10 (the night) in
the face of such competition. What
J-Hop really needs is the Duke and:
Duchess of Windsor as chaperons.
For the rest of us, just part of the
mob, J-Hop means the peak of the
year, Hedy Lamarr or no Hedy La-
marr. That week-end between se-
mesters with no worries, school work
and committee meetings-is pure
fun, distilled to its finest.
Basie and Busse, combined with
that special week-end, spell a super
J-Hop for '39. There have been ru-
mors (we hate to gossip like this)
that if the date were changed-make
it March or April-we'd be dancing
to the rhythms of Dorsey and Good-
man. Say we-better Tim Doolittle
and his Michigan Mountaineers
February 10, than Goodman and
Dorsey March 15. Do you agree?

The rustle of taffeta pleats
under your best frock is another
way of saying that the key-word
of fashion today is piquancy.
Thus the lady above adds to her
