JGP Commiteemen
Find, iving Is Diicult

"We couldn't even give them away"
was the wail of the JGP publicity
committee yesterday when they tried
to give away nice, new yellow pencils
"free-for nothing" as a publicity
stunt for "Hi-Falutin," which will
open tomorrow.
Michigan students, wary of the
wiles of salesmen and the volunteer
workers who arQ in evidence on "tag
days" suspected some string was at-
tached to the pencils and expected
a charge to follow the giving.
"We had to practically plead with
people to accept them," was the final
comment of Mary Lou McKisson, Tad
Lynch, Jane Grove and Lee Hardy
who stood opposite the Engineers'
arch with their free wares.
An intensive and basic experience in
the various branches of nursing is
offered during tha thirty-two months'
course which leads to the degree of

New styles in coats seem to con-
firm the prophecy that skirts ale

fur collars appear to best advan-

the "upward trend."

Independents Frolic At Assembly Ball.
No winds of March, no trails of slush, kept Michigan women home
this week-end, for besides being Leap Year, Friday eve was Assembly Ball.
Independent women took advantage of the occasion and all were at the
League. Just arriving we saw Jeanne Grant and Chuck Greene looking
their bestest while having their images snapped. Right behind them, wait-;
/ ing their turn, were Mim Rubin and Jack Spitalny, talk-'
ing with Louise Rich and Les Spurburg. Lured by the
music we wandered into the BALLROOM to dance and
-immediately bumped into Marjorie Sherman and Bill
Hill and Annette Rossin and Mossie Lilly. Gliding along
once more after STRAIGHTENING ourselves out we no-
ticed Helen Boutell, Doris Atkinson, George Davidson,
and Bill Ash talking together in a corner. Something
whisked by in a hurry and quick like a bunny we looked
up to see Ginny Fowler and Bob Parker. Oh yes, we
said HELLO to Frannie Mendelson and Hartley Gold-
stien and to Helen Mosher and Dave Whittier. Getting
thirsty we went downstairs for a coke and met Sally Lev
and Mort Halperin and Emily Ross and Grover Trytten.
Back to the ballroom for one more DANCE and then we
waved good-bye to Helen Hill, Bill MacIntosh, Helen
Nevas, Joe Levine, Rosalie Beckman and Bert Zheutlin.
Over to the Congregational Student dinner-dance we
rushed to be in time for dessert at least. Though we
didn't stay long we saw Esther Honeywell, Phil Heuman, Jay Drake, and
Murell,'Bessey applauding Julia LaRue's birthday speech. Stopping in at
the Union we encountered nione others than Bee Haley and Hadley Smith
along with Kay Dye and Dick Arbuckle. Listening to Bob Steinle "give out"
the music were Ginny Patterson, Bob Getts and Jane Sciles and Jim Neilson.


Fsreshman Assistant Systems
Necessary, Says Mrs. Die1k

"No freshman dormitory can be
run successfully without a system of
upperclassmen advisors," believes
Mrs. Diekema, social director of Mar-
ha Cooke. Five years' experience at
Stanford University leads her to laud
the "sponsor" system in effect there.
The system of advisors, Miss Die-
kema pointed out, is valuable because
t. provides opportunities for direct
contact between freshman and girls
who have had opportunity to learn
the ins and outs of campus life.
Michigan To Adopt Plan
Although the acclimation of fresh-
man women to Michigan life this
year has run smoothly, the directors
of Jordan Hall, anxious to make
every improvement possible, plan to
adopt a similar, but not identical,
system at the freshman dormitory
for next semester. Twenty outstand-
ing women will be chosen as assis-
tants by the directors, to work closely
with the staff on personnel prob-
Twenty sponsors, 12 seniors and
eight juniors, are chosen at Stanford
by Conference, comparable to Michi-
gan's League Council. Three are from
the Council, comparable to the
League's Judiciary Council, and three
are chosen by the first six girls. "No
jobs are so coveted on the Stanford
campu as these 20 sponsorships,
since the most outstanding women
are deliberately chosen."
System Is Closely Knit
The closely knit system gives each
sponsor a chance to be intimate with
each girl on the corridor to which
she is assigned and in which she
lives. Her special qualifications equip
her to advise the freshmen on the in-
tracacies of campus life, on study
schedules, and on numerous prob-
lems that need special attention. In
each sponsor are combined the
youthfulness that permits her to

be genuinely friendly with freshman
women, and the personnel training
that fits her to deal with problems
sanely and competently.
Assistants To Be Trained
At Michigan, a special training
course will equip the assistants to
deal with problems in this way, and
will direct them in matters of per-
sonnel management. Stanford also
offers this advisorship training.
On a list of all junior and senior
women, the dormitory directors at
Stanford check off those girls who
are not suitable for the position of
sponsor; from then on the choice is
up to the student government. Al
Michigan, at least during the incep-
tion of the assistant plan, petitions
will be handed to Miss Colton, House
director of Jordan Hall, by Wednes-
day, and the choice will be made
by the Jordan directors.
Selection Based On Recorh
At both schools, selection is based
upon activities, personality, charac-
ter, stability, ability to get along witi
people, and dormitory citizenship
as demonstrated in the school caree:
of the candidates. At Stanford, ont
head sponsor works in direct contac
with the dormitory director, whil
the others are assigned to specif i
During orientation period, th
freshmen are instructed not only it
the ways of campus life, in stud3
systems, but are taught the Stanfor(
Scode of honor and dormitory regu.
lations. This work is also carried or
by the twenty sponsors. At Michi
gan, however, the usual system o
orientation advisors will be continu
ed. Advisors here are chosen by Judic
ary Council of the League, whil

be handed to Miss Colton of Jordai

Phi Kap's Had Fun At Party
On arriving at the Phi Kappa Sigma party we talked while there to
Kris Lee, George Egger, Ruth Silva and Tom Kieckhefer. Ann Minckler
and Lowell Moss didn't see us as they were busy dancing. 'Twas nearly
curfew when we were still at the Phi Kaps' so
we didn't have time to take in the Pi Lam radio
dance but we did hear who was there and had.
fun. And we were informed that Ruthie Ru-
biner was with Georgie Heller and that Ginny
Nathanson and Bert Lefkowich were together.
And reports have come in that the opera at
the Lydia Mendelssohn was well-received by
Gwen Dunn, Bob Dunn, Barbara Fairbairn, *
and Ed Bennett.
Satdy afternoon we had a wonderful time
laughing at the story of the "Hi-Falutin" dress
rehearsal when Annabel Van Winkle and Marion Condegot were stuck
under a bed. Visions of their having to complete the play with heads stick-
ing out from under a satin bedspread disrupted the cast, 'tis said, moment-
arily. And no wonder! The JGP gals really are havin fun preparing their
momentous offering. Louise Finney, Helen Rigterink, Do Gilliam and Pat
Nahser are attaining heights as "bloomer girls" in one of the most mixed-up
of the mix-ups. Central committee members Jane Grove, Lee Hardy, and
Ruth Fitzpatrick may be constantly seen dashing here, there, and every-

that the male lead of the play was

back the more elaborate productions
such as in 1915 when the play took
its first and longest trip to be given

JGP entitled "Yankee Yogie" was
taken to Detroit.
Last year's play, "Pig In A Poke,"
was notable for costume detail which
this year's play will alto present.

"Mrs. Roosevelt," accompanied by
her partner in dance, will be present
at the Union coke bar from 4:30 p.m.
