and Sigma Chi will attempt to re-
capture the spirit of the famed

The original "Miami Triad" had
its beginnings at Miami University
in Oxford, 0., where Beta Theta Pi
established its chapter in 1839, Phi
Delta Theta, in 1848 and Sigma Chi,
in 1855. The organization spread
through the West and South and
became so outstanding that "Miami
Triad" dances on many campuses
became one of the major events of
the social season.
Band Features Singing, Dancing
Leroy Smith and his famous or-
chestra will furnish the music for
the dance. Smith's 14-piece band,
which only recently finished a 17-
week engagement at the Mayfair
Casino in Cleveland, features both
swing and sweet music, especially
arranged in a tempo suitable to
dancing. The band also features en-
semble singing by the entire group,
and vocal solos and eccentric and
soft shoe dancing by drummer Henry
The committee in charge of the
"Miami Triad" consists of the social

Perry, '42, Phi Delta Theta; Robert
Shulters, '40E, Sigma Chi, and Julius
Beers, '40, Beta Theta Pi, who have
announced that a formal dinner will

On the afternoon of the dance,
the three houses will be split up,
with one class taking charge of each

will hold sway, while the juniors,
with the sophomores assisting, will
command the Phi Delta Theta house,
leaving the freshmen to rule the Sig-
ma Chi house.I

Dr. Eliza M. Mosher Was
First Notable Woman
Graduate Of University
In speaking of illustrious Mich-
igan alumnae it is only fitting that
the name of Dr. Eliza M. Mosher be
put at the head of the list. Eliza
Mosher, '75M, first Dean of Women
at the University, was one of the five
original women to enroll when Mich-
igan opened its doors to women in
The late Senator Royal S. Cope-
land, a colleague and friend, gave'
her much credit for Michigan's fame
when he said, "She started activities'
and movements which gave such
popularity to the University that
now thousands of women are at-
tracted to it."
Held Variety Of Positions
After her graduation Dr. Mosher
studied abroad, entered private prac-
tice, was appointed superintendent
of the Massachusetts StateWomen's,
Reformatory School, lectured at
Wellesley College, served as resident
physician at Vassar College, and
resumed private practice again.
But for only 10 years was she able
to do work in her chosen field when
her alma mater called her to be
the first Dean of Women under
President James B. Angell. At Mich-
igan Dr. Mosher developed the de-
partment of physical education for
women students in Barbour Gymna-
sium, which was just being com-
pleted. She also had a full profes-
sorship in hygiene and gave a course
on home economics in addition to
being Dean of Women.
Was Writer And Lecturer
In 1902 she returned to her Brook-
lyn practice which she continued u-
til her death at the age of 82 in
Accomplishments of this famous
alumna are too numerous to enu-
merate, but they include popular
writing and lecturing besides many
medical papers and a book on per-
sonal hygiene which has been trans-
lated into Braille for the blind.
Her studies in posture have been
considered outstanding. She design-
ed the seats in several types of rapid
transit cars, and was the inventor
of a kindergarten chair. At the In-
ternational Congress of Medical Wo-
Publicity Head
To Be Chosen

men at Geneva in 1923 Dr. Mosher
represented the Medical Women's
National Association of which she
was honorary President. For more
than 20 years she was senior editor
of the Medical Women's Journal.
Honored At Banquet
More recently, in June, 1927, Dr.
Mosher turned the first sod for the
construction of the new Women's
League Building.
It was in recognition of Dr.
Mosher's superior work in all that
she ever undertook that prompted
her friends and associates to tender7
her a banquet in 1925 in New York
City on the rare experience of at-
taining the completion of 50 years in
the practice of medicine.

Milady's Summer
Wardrobe Shows
Trea, To Stripes
Stripes! Not just all over our flag.
but this spring they're all over us.
Their charm is that they're becom-
ingly adaptable to every type. Thin
people wear them going around,
stout people wear them up and down;
and almost anyone can wear them
to an advantage when they slant.
They're most popular for blouses
and wash dresses, but suits, skirts
and evening dresses take their share.
You'll see them used as piping too,
or as a contrast to plain colors in
two-piece dresses. And the color is
incidental, for they are seen in every
hue. Blue and red quite often are
mixed with white. Different pastels
combine well into irregular widths
of stripes.
