their second annual formal which will
be held from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. to-
day in the ballroom and on the ter-
race of the Rackham School.
Musical background will be furn-
ished by George Kavanaugh and his
orchestra, who will feature sweet as
well as swing music. Vocal and sax-

portant part in entertainment. Kav-
anaugh and his band have recently

Union, and the Rackham School.
Members of the faculty as well as
graduate students may purchase tick-
ets, though one member of each
couple must have graduate standing.
The dance will be limited to 75

tee for the affair are headed by Jose-

Abe Rosenzweig, president; Jack
Dendy, vice-president, and William
Cargo, executive secretary.

dance are: Dean and Mrs. C. S. Yoak-
um, Dean and Mrs. Peter Okkelberg,
Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Gooch and Prof.

"Puerto Rico? The University
there is not so different. You losel
time loafing just like here, only more,,
for it's spring all year."
So said Adelita Ortiz, Grad., who
received her B.A. degree here last;
year after taking her first two years;
at the University of Puerto Rico at
Rio Piedras near San Juan. She
spoke with affection for her former
school, but added that she felt that
she was an American "like everyone
here is."
In Puerto Rico the campus is al-
ways green, with many tropical plants
and trees. The whole campus changes
its aspect in one season when the
"flamboyants" are covered with their
red flowers. At times when one's at-
tention is not drawn by these trees,
one would notice the Spanish archi-
tecture of the buildings with their
arches, columns and patios.
One of the most characteristic feat-
ures of an American university, the
football season, is not present in Puer-
to Rico, Miss Ortiz commented. 1Iow-
ever, they do have intercollegiate
sport meets with the College of Agri-
culture and Engineering at Maya-
guez. Basketball games with this
school draw all the excitement that
our football does.
Except for sports, there aren't many
extra-curricular activities at the Uni-
versity, Miss Ortiz continued. Most
of the students' leisure time is taken
up with swimming and picnics, and
the popular Ann Arbor past-time of
bridge is almost entirely excluded.
Other sports are tennis, horseback
riding, boating and deep sea fish-
il g.
Dancing and moving pictures are
riaturally popular. The music played
for dances, said Miss Ortiz, is mostly
Latin, for the Puerto Ricans tango
nd rhumba a lot, and whatever North

All-Year Spring Makes Study
Hard In Puerto Rican Schools

Anierican music is played is usually
played quite badly. Contrary to the
olpuiion of many people, chaperons
for going and coming to dances are
nt any more necessary than they
a e here. However, there are many
more dances with stags. These dances
are usually held in the open air.
Students go to the many country
clubs or to San Juan for their social
life, explained Miss Ortiz. San Juan
is an interesting combination of old
and new, for it is a modern city that
has grown around several ancient
forts. The busiest social seasons are
Carnival, celebrated at the same time
as, and very much like Mardi Gras,
and the Christmas season, which lasts
until Jan. 6. Its a far different
Christmas than here, though, for its
just like a cool summer day. When
Miss Ortiz spoke of snow, she said,
'I thought it would be dry like tal-
cum powder, but it's wet and sparkles.
That's the most different thing here."

Agency Organized
To Return Books
Ahead Of Deadline
Rain, and Ann Arbor rain in partic-
ular, has that faculty of making the
most of us very loath to climb out of
bed at 7 a.m. just to return the
library book we took out in a moment
of energy the night before; and it is
upon this common lethargy that
Winifred McAllister. '40, and Martha
Taylor, '40, have capitalized.
This agency, working in Martha
Cook Dormitory, picks up the books
at the library and will take them
back in the morning for a nominal
sum. "Very profitable," assert the
Misses McAllister and Taylor, "con-
sidering we are early risers anyway."
Their success is based not only on
the lack of desire of their clientele
to rise in the cold morning, but on
a very extensive personalized adver-
tising campaign. Posted on the
bulletin boards on each floor are
notices and testimonials by former
patronizers. "Miss Janet Montmor-
ency Clark relaxes in luxury knowing
that her brow will not be wrinkled
because of over-due books ." And
the face of Janet Clark, '40, peers
out from an advertisement from a
local magazine; and instead of ad-
vertising percale sheets, the McAllis-
ter-Taylor service gains customers.
No reasonknow, why the women of
Martha Cook can't have their books
and sleep, too.
(Iapel Will Hold Dance
St. Mary's Chapel will hold an in-
formal radio dance from 8:30 to 12:30
tonight in the newly-furnished chapel
auditorium. This will be the first of
a series of dances to be held between
now and the end of the school year.

C. Fuller. Theta Delta Chi will en-
tertaIn with a dinner dance. Mr.
axed Mrs. J. C. Garries and Mr. and
Mrs. E. F. Barker will chaperon.
The Theta Xi fraternity house will
be transformed into "Moose Hall"
tonight. Bill Gail's orchestra play-
ing in shirt sleeves will provide the
necessary atmosphere to carry out the
theme for the fraternity's spring for-
nal. Chaperons will be Prof. and
Mrs. H. M. Kendall and Major and
Mrs. Walter B. Fariss.
