St. Andrew's Easter Ball
iloBe Held At Union
The League of St. Andrew will
?.old its annual Easter Ball from 9:30
p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Friday in the Union
Ballroom, Mrs. Cyrus Sturgis, pub-
)city chairman, announced yester-
Del Delbridge and his orchestra
from Detroit will furnish the music for
the dance, Mrs. Sturgis continued.
For those members who would prefer
to play bridge, 50 tables will be set
up in the Pendleton Library.
Mrs. Reed Nesbit is general chair-,
man of the dance. She is assisted by
Mrs. Elliott Barnwell, tickets; Mrs.
Lewis Gram, bridge; Mrs. Harry
Hawkins, decorations; and Mrs. Ran-
dclph Adams, president of the St.
New Trend In.
"I just sent my winter clothes home
in toto!" "It's still snowing like
February!" "Is this Christmas or
Easter Vacation coming up?" Those
are just a few viewpoints on the
weather conditions while spring
clothes are adorning shop windows.
New problems have arisen about
how to keep warm and look springy
at the same time. These problems
can easily be solved with a little inte-
gration of last season's and this sea-
son's wardrobes. "Fabric" and "col-
or" are the key words.
Under that heavy woolen coat or
swagger fur, a trim pastel wool suit
will be evidence that the Easter par-
ade is history although the thernmo-
meter does not seem to care. Tow-
ering turbans or snap brim "debbies"
to top the winter coat and to match
the two piece light weight suit will
brighten the effect-of a wintery coat.
Wool dresses that can be worn the
year round can now be purchased in
pinks, blues, foggy greens, light grey,
and numerous other shades that be-
speak the spring season. Warm and
soft, they are protective against the
unseasonal elements, and attractive
There will be a meeting of the pub-
licity committee of Freshman Project
at 5 p.m. today in the League, Jane
Graham, '43, publicity chairman, an-
nounced yesterday. The place of
meeting will be posted on the League
bulletin board. It is urged that the
committeemen bring all possble ideas.

A special dating bureau, operating

Spring seems to need a little coax-
ing this year. The jewelry designers
are doing their best to help with this
worthy project. Heavy necklaces of
leaves and bright colored flowers are
being worn. Pins with attractive mo-
tifs, such as the early bird getting
the worm or the first robin are ap-
pearing either on coat lapels or at
the neck of shirts.

Social climax to the convention
will be informal dances Friday and
Saturday nights, April 26 and 27,
in the Ethel Fountain Hussey Room
of the League. Earl Stevens and his
orchestra will entertain the terpsi-
corian minded delegates Friday
night. The orchestra for Saturday
night has not been announced.
The Foundation upon which all
the man-and-maid-matching will be
organized will be based on a terse
questionaire, grounded on psycho-
logical and sociological principles,
and flavored with a dash of humor.
In addition to ferreting out such pro-
saic but essential facts as height
weight and length of arm of the
date-seeking Theta Chi, the quiz
poses such alternatives as: "dark
redhead or bleached," and "athletic
student or just putting in time."
The forthcoming convention wil
mark the first year that the Theta
Chi regional Corral has been held in
Ann Arbor. Previous meetings have
been at Columbus, Ohio, and the
local chapter has contracted for both
this year and next as the convention
site, Colvin L. Gibson, '40, chairman
from the five regional chapters at

formal dances Friday and Saturday
