Advisers' Posts
Two Types Of Positions
Open; Past Experience
Helpful To__Applicants,
Sophomore and junior women who
wish to be orientation advisers next
fall may petition for those positions
beginning tomorrow and continuing
through March 4, Betty Slee, '40,
chairman of Judiciary Council, an-
nounced yesterday.
Petition blanks may be obtained at
the Undergraduate Office of the
League, and 58 freshman advisers are
needed, as well as 32 transfer advis-
ers, Miss Slee said. All who petition
should state on their blanks which
of the two positions they want.
There will be no assistant advisers
this year, and those who were on the
committee last year are especially
urged to petition. Eligibility cards
for second semester must be present-
ed when interviewing begins, which
will be shortly after the deadline for
Judiciary Council is in charge of
petitioning and interviewing this
year, instead of the special Orienta-
tion committee, as has previously been
the case.
Announcement of those who have
been chosen as advisers will be made

Chorus Girls
Wear ..Hoops
"Hoops, my dears, we can't prac-
tice that step without hoops." And
the "bloomer girls" are in again for
the 1940 JGP, "Hi-Falutin!" which
will be given March 14, 14, 15,and 16.
Although the "bloomer girl" dance
is the most popular, every nook and
cranny of the League is humming
with other taps and tunes which will
appear in the production.
The conglomeration of rehearsal
costumes is the most striking feature
of the practicing up to date. Shorts
and slacks alike have that left-over-
from-the-summer-of-1939 look, but
colors and styles are not lacking in
SAnd where the dances are not un-
derway, the cast has managed to find
a corner in which to practice. Lack,
of properties ;forces the would-be
KatherinesCornells to use chairs as
trees, beds, and various other pieces
of furniture.
Major problem of the moment is to
teach young ladies to drop their fem-
inine habits, such as patting their
hair and acquire a few masculine
traits of walking and talking in order
to give a convincing performance.
Finally the cast has been warned to
wear old clothes because, it was soon
divulged, there are frequent falls by
various characters during the pro-

Ever popular on college cam-
puses is the trim polo coat. Leader
in sportswear for some time, it
again takes the limelight in spring
sports outfits. Its practicability
for both campus wear and dress
wear makes it almost a necessity in
the college woman's wardrobe.

Nearly 1,500 men students ,to say,
nothing of women teachers, have
learned to waltz, fox trot, square
dance, two-step, jitterbug, tango, and
rhumba in the last six years under
the direction of Miss Ethel A. McCor-
mick, better known as "Miss Mac,"
the social director of Michigan wo-
The classes, which started as one of
"Miss Mac's" pet projects, are con-
ducted in both summer and winter
sessions. Both beginning and ad-
vanced classes are held each term with
about 75 men enrolled in each. "It
has even been necessary to turn some
men down because there were not
enough teachers to be partners of
all who wanted to enter," Miss Mc-
Cormick said.
Dance For Fun
Besides learning to dance, the pur-
poses of the classes, according to
"Miss Mac" are to have fun while
dancing and to get acquainted with
others on campus.
Miss McCormick was connected
wth the public schools in Detroit and
taught dancing there and in the
physical education department in the
University prior to starting her danc-
ing classes in the League.
Contrasting summer anduwinter
classes, "Miss Mac" pointed out that
square dancing, which is very popu-
lar in summer classes, is not re-
quested at all in the winter-time. Stu-

the fox trot took the spotlight.
Interpretation Stressed
The idea of the classes, said Miss
McCormick .is not to teach certain
definite steps to the students, but to
give them ideas on how to interpret
selections in their own way, to teach
them to enjoy music. Students in
the classes are taught the steps they
want to learn and they may progress
as rapidly as they can.
Last year Miss McCormick asked
Elva Pascoe, who was then doing
graduate work at the University, to
assist her in the classes. According
to Miss Pascoe, she had been one of
the women who had spent her time
helping to teach the fellows just as
the others had and, until that time,
had learned all she knew from "Miss
When asked to assist last year she
enrolled in the Arthur Murray Dance
Studio in Detroit where she has tak-
en lessons since that time.

Committee Will Meet
Plans for coming guest luncheons
will be discussed at the next meeting
of the 1939 Frosh Project committee
at noon tomorrow in the League.
Those who wish to order early are
urged to call Betty Fariss, '42, to make
arrangement. A short business meet-
ing will follow the luncheon discus-
sion, Miss Fariss said.

Though at this time of year chap-

In Retrospect: a week made mem-
orable by the fact that George Wash-
ington's birthday cut it in twain.
Ergo, the great majority of students
thank Washington for so considerately
being born on Feb. 22-and not on
Dec. 26, or some equally undesirable
But said students might consider
"the father of his country" above
and beyond the fact that his birthday
brings a holiday. Principles of indi-
vidual liberty are here and there
deemed old-fashioned with "isms" at
the height of their popularity, but
there are times and times when even
the college student-in this little
world of his own-might be glad
Washington did not have leanings
toward dictatorship.
No Thursday Classes
And then there is the sad case of
those people who never have any
classes on Thursday, holiday or no..
In Prospect: a week which those
concerned hope will be made memor-
able by the revival of the Union
Opera. Possibilities of this revival are
many and varied, from presentation
of a song which will gain popularity
and fame equal to "When Night Falls
Dear" to the discovery of Gilbert
and Sullivan talent in authorship or
dramatic talent.
