man Project. She is affiliated with

out on the women's staff of The Daily.

this has necessitated rushing the
project in the fall. It is hoped that
under this new system the central
committee members as well as their
committeemen will have a better
opportunity to organize the plans for
the Cabaret early in the new semes-
Campers Say 'Baaaa'
To Nature's Mowers
Maybe you think lawn mowers are
noisy! Sixty women who went on
the recreational leadership house-
party at Patterson Lake last week-
end are willing to reconsider. On
their arrival they learned with inter-
est that the Fresh Air Camp lets
nature clip their lawns with the
assistance of several hundred roving
Shortly after "lights off" the mow-
ing machines began to function be-
neath the cabin windows. Some
sneered, some beeped, some groaned,
and a few bleated according to nur-
sery rhyme specifications. Count-
ing sheep was too realistic to induce
sleep, the campers found. Towards
4 a.m. rain set in and the flocks,
(100 per cent wool, liable to shrink-
age) with heart-rending and head-
splitting protests, fled to the woods.
"If they even; dare to serve mut-
ton at Jordan Hall next week," said
Mary Lou Carran, '43, the next morn-
ing to her hollow-eyed cabin mates,
"I'll scream baa-aa-aaaa!"

Of 'College Career
Comes Tuesday, June 11, and even
the worst grinds among the seniors
let their hair down, intent on the
one purpose of making sure their
last impression of Ann Arbor will
be the best one.
Ann Arbor always shines for senior
week, in fact, even the sun does. With
nothing more serious on her mind
than which color flower would look
best in her hair at Senior Ball, the
Michigan woman turns her eyes to-
ward the tennis courts, the river,
Whitmore Lake, Loch Alpine and the
nearest bridle path.
Sworntstatements by former seniors
testify that average nightly sleep
amounts to less during this week than
during the stiffest of their exams for
their four college years.
There will be not many, but a few,
under-classmen hanging around un-
derfoot, pretending to take it in their
stride, but actually thrilled by a new
outlook on school, or rather, school
as ideally conceived.
The land of promise needs a reser-
vation, of course; all good things do,
as the more pessimistic among us
have found out long ago. Permis-
sion will be stretched to 11 o'clock.
We hear that the year before last
some house capitalized on the canoe-
ing fad. A pool was made to go to
the house with the largest number
of dunkings for the week.
This year picnics and swims are
slated to build the week up to the
climax on Friday, when Glenn Miller
and his band will play for the Ball.
Dance Class Committee
To Begin Interviewing
Interviewing for the dance class
committee of the League will be held
from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. today and
tomorrow in the undergraduate of-
fice of the League. Margaret Whitte-
more, '41, is chairman of the inter-
It will not be necessary to hand
in petitions in order to be inter-
viewed, Miss Whittemore has an-
nounced. Members who do not call

Resolution To Abolish

sult of defeating Barbour Team II
composed of Julie Chockley, '43, and
Rosebud Scott, '42.
Students Supervised Debate
This is the third year that the
League has sponsored intramural de-
bating for women. Last year the
winners were Dorcas Conin, Grad.,
and Zenobia Skoratko, '40Ed., repre-
sening Alumnae House and Mosher
Hall. In previous years the debate
series was coached by Mrs. Cran-
dall of the speech department, but
this year the activity was entirely
Jean Maxted, '41, was chairman
of the series, and Mary Martha Tay-
lor, '41, Beth Caster, '41, and Jane
Sapp, '41, were on the committee.
Each team received one League point
for each debate.
Members of the women's varsity
debate team assisted in the judging
of the elimination debates.
Archers Will Hold

tion of Betty Lyman, '41, will finish

By Ann Arbor Local Corresnondent
Gather 'round and read on, all you social butterflies, you brave (or
foolish) lads and lassies who practiced the art of .procrastination (in r.e.
studying) over the recently completed weekend. Yes, read on, and maybe-
you lucky, lucky peepulls-and maybe you'll see your names in PRINT!
Despite the age-old saying that an Ann Arbor weekend swings into
action of a Thursday afternoon, there was little evidence of the death-throest
of one 52nd of a year until the sun had set Fi'iday. Then the Alpha Phis
started things rolling with a dinner dance at Barton Hills Country Club-
food and music were reported to be excellent, incidentally.
Procrastinators indlge In Festivities ...
Among other procrastinators were Ann Ward and Bud Cox, seen whip-
ping all over the crowded dance floor and having no end of fun, 'tis said.
Mary Hayden and Dick Higgins, looking definitely unbored, were discussing
weighty matters--probably relevant to trading a dance-over in a corner
with Barb Grill and Gail Rector, usually reliable sources stated late Sunday.
Chuck Coe, Detroit's reliable contribution to local society, appeared no end
interested in date Jan Burns, who, as rumor would have it, looked positively
radiant-gosh! Bette Corlett aid .lack Walsh were trying out;new steps
when last seen at the party, with Bob Fowler of track fame trying to cut in.
Meanwhile, Pudge Kreighoff and Jack Aries shuffled by the bandstand,
pausing for a comment to Janet Clark and Chuck Huber, who were amazing
in a very hero-worshipping way at the
maestro and his music-makers. Mimi
f ¢ Morse and Al Nelson seemed deeply in-
terested in a pack of cigarettes (sorry,
brand may not be mentioned), while
Gerry Braun and Jim Dickey focussed
their attention on the weighty problem
of dancing. Jean Anderson, gossip tells
us, was there, dancing with date Russ
Peebles-and were they trying out the fancy steps-wow! Jean Goll and
Jules Becker were seen catching their respective breaths between numbers.
The weekend got off to one of the best starts in University history, if
censored despatches relevant to the number of dances may be trusted. The
Phi Gams swung into action, Norm Call and Mary Lou Ewing leading the
way to the festivities. Lois Basse, Larry Rivek, Virginia Morse and Ed King
came in just as your collyumniste arrived.'
.tterbug Mecca Is Revealed .. .
As usual, the Union was a mecca for jitterbugs and general social but-
terflies, with dances Friday and Saturday night-BOTH Dorie Kimball and
Will Wallace made things uretty lively with some fancy, but smooth dancing
on the opening night, to the interest of Jean Wagner and Jim Davis. The
Saturday night gang included Rajah Kelly (explaining the European situa-
tion to Edith Langwear), while Mary Sullivan danced with Doug Gould.
The Delta Gams, not to be outdone by the other flutterbies, threw a
cute little affair at their Hill Street residence. Yep, and there the kollyum-
niste, still disguised as a kingly cabbage-found Jane Connell enjoying her-
self with Ed Htuchens. Oh, and those Psi Phis-imagine having a formal
dance just one week before finals begin--? Nancy Chapman, the little
lady from Grosse Pointe, was listening with inspiring intentness to some-
thing Ted Kennedy was saying to her, to #Marg Dodge and to Bill Sessions.
You say you didn't find your name in the kollyum? Gosh, that's aw-
ful. In fact, it's almost deplorable, the Allied propaganda bureau statement
said late yesterday. Anyhow, take a look again sometime-and maybe you'll
find it. Then, and only then, will your social reputation be made. Then,
and only then, will you have attained BM or WOC status. Until then, keep
looking, and say a little prayer each night. Toodle-oo, butterflies, the French
Ministry of Information announced today.

An experimental professional place-
ment bureau for radiologists (popu-
larly called x-ray and radium men-
and women) is being conducted, and
was recently expanded, under the
sponsorship of the American College
of Radiology by Dr. Samuel W. Don-.
aldson of St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital.
Its purpose is to uphold the standards
of the practice of radiology, and to
maintain it as a specialized field of
Women as well as men go into
x-ray work after having completed
their medical training. One of his
openings has recently been filled by
a woman who is in charge of a hos-
pital, and one other woman is now
listed among his applicants.
Many Requests Come
In the three years that he has
handled the Bureau, Dr. Donaldson
has had requests from the four cor-
ners of America and from a number
of foreign countries as well, although
he is not able to include people not
living in America in his Bureau.
Statistics that he 'has been collect-
ing since he was asked to form the
original placement Bureau in May,
1937, have convinced Dr. Donaldson
-and the Board of Chancellors of
the College of Radiology-that a
definite need exists for such an or-
ganization, that enough openings oc-
cur each year to accommodate all of
the doctors finishing their special-
ized x-ray training, and that most
of the men training radiologists seek
some such medium through which to
place their men.
Enlargement Is Planned
So convincing have these figures
been that in February of this year,
the Board of Chancellors voted, to
sponsor the enlargement of the orig-
inal, little-publicized placement bu-
reau into a professional bureau that
would include all men throughout
the country seeking jobs, and all post
graduate students of approved radi-
ology training schools.
Dr. Donaldson has revised his files
