Poise And Attractive Personality

authorities in local Ann Arbor shops,

after vacation.

for a campus-sponsored style show,
the leading women in the various
shops have expressed their opinions
as to the qualities they desire in a
A model need not be beautiful, they
say, but height and an excellent car-
riage displayed with general poise and
personality are the major character-
istics desired to exhibit the clothes to
the best possible advantage. Good
grooming and a pleasant smile, neith-
er too stiff nor scared, are other nec-
essary attributes for a model.
Height is a desirable feature for a
model because of the extra advantage
that she has in displaying the clothes.
Also the dresses do not have to be
altered so radically. The tailored
types, with their long waistlines, are
especially fitted for a tall woman.
Hemlines, too, being usually long, are
more adaptable to the tall model.
Beauty is not a "must" for the
model; but attractiveness, grooming
and good proportions are able substi-
tutes. And remember that smile!
Menefee Wedding

day in the First Congregational

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Whereas all the good people of the Township of
Ann Arbor should rightfully know the truthful state of conditions during
the previous week-end, we shall now enumerate them foi-the benefit of all.
As ye good people all know the lawyers held court on Friday night at
their Crease Ball. Among those commanded to appear at said ball were
Julie Chockley and Ken Nordstrom who were celebrating their court ap-
pearance along with the Horty Smiths, Roy Rog-
ers, Helen Hay, Bob Gillis. Another happy group
of complainants and defendants were Freddie
' "Van der Veen, Brud Pierce, Patty Haislip, Jim
jGrace, Bev Brachan, Harry Dort, Betty Harwood
and Harry Calcott.
And whereas all ye people are aware there
was another rival group of devotes to the Slide
Rule, who had gathered to honor said instrument
on Friday night also. Among these were Marion
Schaefer, Edwin Ward, Fran Martin, Bill Wal-
lace, Jane Reshore and Dick Morton. But it is
sad to relate that there were other dissenters there who compared the
"state of rapture" to the court of the Slide Rule more favorably. We are
reluctant to admit that Ardiss Watson, Jim Mason, Gwen Dunn, Bill Davis,
Jane Hunt, and Bill Lambert were in the aforesaid category. But there were
more sensible persons who passed up said serious discussion to enjoy the
evening's entertainment. Those to be congratulated are Margaret Dodge,
George Smith, Jean Coffelt, Bob Wheeler and Pat Saxon and Gil Walker.
Phi Psis Are Investigated
But let us good people turn to other forms of relaxation which shall
enable us to have a good insight into the conditions of this township. The
Delta Tau Delta formal shows where Peg Seabright, Emmett Whitehead,
Carrie Wismer, Carl Wheeler, Barbara Woodward and John Dittman were
fulfilling their obligations as members of our community, affords us an
excellent example. Other citizens present at aforementioned entertainment
were Dorothy Merki, Johnny Yager, Peg Gezann, and Howard Parker.
Now my good people it is your right to know that the Kappas held a
tea dance Saturday afternoon. Jack Reed, Jim Tobin, Jim Wells, Billy
Cole, Bob Reeves, Bud Whitley and Johnny Gedell were among the stags
'' / trying to cut-4n on Alice Ann Lord, Do Gilliam, Doro-
* 0* ,thy Boyer, Barbara Brehm and Barbara Telling.
But we must turn to Saturday evening to really
have a true appreciation of said social activities. First
let us consider the case of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon
pirate party. The pirate supreme, Jake Anderson, was
helping Jack Luxan, Sue Barlow, Jim Meadows, Jim
Thompson and Fran Nevins over the gangplank when
we arrived to check up on the party. While Roger
Smith, Lois Gish, Bruce Beyer and Jeanne Noyes were
looking most fierce in their pirate costumes and sword.
We left much afreighted by such fierce buccaneers and
ran all the way to the Chi Phi House where we were received sympa-
thetically by Elsie Courtney, Buck Antell, Margot Thom, Tom Harmon,
Virginia Osgood and Barry Ratliff.
Delis Hold Formal
Said kind persons having dispelled our fears, we carried our investiga-
tion into the Phi Psi House where Lillian Zimmerman, John Hoppin, Lenore
Warner, Glenn Robinson, Adelina Hermandees and Phil Neuman assisted
us in our inquiry. But four others, namely Bill Lowden, Dorothy Dunlap,
Jane Nussbaum and Ellis Wunsch regarded us suspiciously and refused to
cooperate. Those citizens should accordingly be severly reprimanded for
their conduct.
It having come to 'ur attention that the Theta Chis had afforded them-
selves and their friends a Friday evening party, we hurried to gather wit-
nesses for their case. We found Gordon Hardy, Mary Dick Holcomb, Dick
Strain, Betty Henkel, Charles Dillman and Carolyn Denfield ready to testify
as to the legality of the proceedings. Among those present at such festivity
were Bill Keas, Virginia Paterson,, Jack Overton, Anne McCarthy, 'tis said.
Ann Arbor Independents
Elect Representatives
Elaine Wood, '41, has been elected
president of the Ann Arbor Indepen-
dents. Jean Krise, '42, has been chos-
en vice-president and Norma gins-
berg, '41 ,is the new secretary-treas-
These three officers will be on the
Assembly Executive Council and will
appoint chairmen for social, member-
ship and publicity committees.
