Engineer's Amateurish Action'
Ignored By Superior Lawyers

Nautical Sportwear

It may not be legal, but Michigan's
future barristers have supercilious-
ly declined to take steps to prosecute
certain unnamed embryonic engin-
eers who recently, and with malicious
intent, took down all the posters ad-
Vertising Crease Ball, annual formal
dance given by the lawyers which will
be held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday
in the League ballroom.
Dismissing this "amateurish ac-
tion" with a superior smile, the law-
yers declare the merits of Crease Ball
to be too well established to be hurt
by the feeble efforts of rivals who
can't cope with even the most inncs-
cuous competition.

Marion Weiss Wins
Bowling Title Over
Jane Zimmerman
Marion Weiss, '40, won over Jane
Zimmerman, '41, to become the wo-
men's bowling champion of the Uni-
Miss Weiss gained the title Wed-
nesday at the Women's Athletic
Building bowling alleys when she was
victorious in the annual individual
women's bowling tournament.
In a three string match, Miss Weiss
bowled scores of 195, 191 and 177.
Miss Zimmerman was the runner-up
with the following scores: 115, 1571
and 160.
28 women bowled in the tourna-
ment. Nancy Bercaw, '43Ed. was de-
feated by Miss Zimmerman and Miss
Weiss won over Irene Johnson, '42,
in the semi-finals last week.
Throughout the tournament, the
highest total score for three games
won each match.
The team tournament is now inr
progress. Teams are made up of
three members, and any number of
teams may be entered by each In-
dependent Zone, dormitory or soror-
ity house.
All games should be played off at
the earliest possible date, Miss Weiss
bowling representative on the Wo-
men's Athletic Association Board
announced today.
Chapter House
Activity Notes,

tact with the engineers, Law Club
members suggest that their "Slide
Rule" foes peruse carefully Dale Car-
negie's best seller before engaging in
any other activity which might be
brought to the public eye. Proof of
the need of this suggestion was of-
fered by the case of Jimmy Joy, one-
tire engineer, who deserted the pro-
fession, it is alleged, because of the
"uncongenial" associations involved.
Joy and his orchestra, appropriately
enough have been engaged to furnish
the music for Crease Ball.
Another featured attraction of the
dance will be the distribution of the
Michigan Raw Review, a magazine
published for people who move their
lips when-they read. The "Raw Re-
view", which is a take-off on the aus-
tere "Law Review" feature articlesI
,which are designed to lampoon pro-
fessors and members of the Law Club.
Published periodically whenever "The
collective heads of the law school
are felt to have become too large,"
this issue of the magazine will have
as an added attraction, special action
pictures and caricatures of the Law
School faculty.
"Review Is Rumorous"
The "Raw Review" is made as hu-
morously like its more dignified coun-
terpart as possible-using the same
format and type, and including in
its 40 pages leading articles, dis-
cussions and notes.
The "Raw Review Committee" is
composed of James Sagar, Spec, Edi-
tor-in-chief; Redick Jenkins, '40L,
and Leonard Wingert, '40L, co-busi-
ness managers, and C. R. Smith and
John Somerville, '40L, associate edi-
tors. The rest of the committee pre-
fers to remain anonymous in case
any trouble develops over the articles
rMiss Parfet To Be Feed.
By Formal Dance day
A formal dance will be given by
Helen, Elizabeth, and David Ladd, in
honor of the engagement of Steph-
anie Parfet, '39, to Sanford Ladd,
'38, from 9 p.m. to 12 p.m. tonight at
the Huron Hills Country Club.
Herb Ritz and his orchestra will
play for the party tonight. The par-
ents of the bride-to-be will be among
the 200 guests expected to attend.
A 'dinner will be given before the
dance by Mr. Sanford Ladd.

Rare Boo A w ,oek
An incident at Williams College
Williamstown, Mass, is an explana-
tion of the reason books in libraries
are kept locked up. A copy of the firs
Shakespeare Folic: was stolen from
the Chapin Library at the college.
The thief used a letter of introduc-
tion to gain access to the book and
then took it.
Therefore, librarians are keeping
a sharper eye than even on their
books, especially the rare ones.
