ngagements
Climaxing a whirl of showers and
teas, the marriage of Harriet Heath,
'37, to Philip McCallum, '39L, took
place at 8:30 p.m. yesterday in St.
Andrew's Episcopal Church.
Palmer Christian played the organ
for the ceremony. Following the
wedding there was a reception in the
Michigan Union ballroom. Mrs. Mc-
Callum, who is affiliated with Pi
Beta Phi, is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Homer L. Heath, of Ann Arbor.
During her senior year she was chair-
man of the social committee of the
League, and a member of Mortar
Board. This past semester she has
served as secretary to Assistant Dean
Walter B. Rea. Mr. McCallum, son
of Sen. and Mrs. George P. McCal-
lum, is a member of Beta Theta Pi.
Mrs. Charles E. Hart, of Ann Ar-
bor, announces the engagement of
her daughter, Mary Louise Hart,
'39Ed., to Harry L. Hallock, '40, son
of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Hallock, of]
Royal Oak.

By FRANCES MENDELSON
Apple-polishing may not be an ap-
proved method of getting through
college, but for Margery Soenksen,
at least, what began as an innocent
attempt to get a good mark in an
English course, resulted in the birth
of a career.
"Way back" in Junior college, Miss
Soenksen, universally known as
Maggy, recalls that she accidentally
became enrolled in a very difficult
English course. The only way to get
an A in this class, she discovered, was
to participate in the plays which
the professor directed-and partici-
pate she did. Maggy was given a
leading role at the first tryout. "Since
that first play," she is wont to add
with a smile and a bit of a flourish,
"My life has been devoted to the
Drama".
Once arrived at Michigan, Maggy
becanie an active member of Play
Production and the pride of the
Speech department. With such a
start, and that fact that she was a
pretty smart girl on the side, it was
not very long before Maggy discov-
ered a campus building above whose
portals the words "University of
Michigan Broadcasting" were en-
graved. From that day on, going to
see Maggy and going to the broad-
casting studio has become practically
synonomous.
Maggy does not quite know how'
it happened that her affections'
swerved from the stage toaradio. "It
is not that I love the theatre less,"
she hastened to add, "but that I love
radio more." What she thinks prob-
ably happened, was that someone,
on that first day that she wandered
into the studio, was calling for a
script and, before she realized it,
she had offered to write one.
That first script was nothing but

a prelude to many more scripts
which Maggy has written for any
and all kinds of programs. It is not
in the least unusual for he to get
desperate calls at weird hours of the
night for a fifteen minute script to
be completely prepared for the next
morning's broadcast. Maggy does
not sit around waiting for inspira-
tion to strike when writing. Given
specifications as to the type and
length of program, and the number
)f characters desired, she will man-
ufacture a script to order.
In between times, whenever that
may be, she directs, acts on, and
works the sound effects for various
broadcasts, and, just for relaxation,
she writes scripts for her own amuse-
ment. With all this, Maggy still has
time to take care of "her boys" at
the broadcasting studio.
Paris Styles
Now Feature
Lighted Heels
Florida sunning circles and black-
ed-out Paris give us the newest news
in pre-spring shoe interest. Three
inch "Babylonian wedge heels" are
the "onlies" in the former place,
while luminous heels for street and
evening dress hold the foreground
in the latter.
Wedges are built solidly, or with
geometric excavations through the
centers. Colors in stripes, polka dots,
and mazes are the startling results
of the fantastic workmanship on
these new heels. To offset the heavi-
ness of this portion of the shoe, the
toes are cut out as much as possible.
Linen, patent leather, lizard, alliga-
tor, and suede are only a few of the
materials used in this type shoe.
While lights on this side of the
Atlantic are still on after dark, lu-
minous heels, which serve a util-
itarian purpose in Paris, are gather-
ing popularity in our own country.
In the daylight they look merely
translucent, but the dark hours bring
out the full effect of their weird
originality. A literally shining trail
may now be left by the maiden with
a taste for this recent oddity in foot
gear.
Checkerboard alligator is appear-
ing as the very durable, practical,
and comfortable medium for spring
street wear. Most unusual in the
new lighter shades of blue, the trim
appearance of this leather lends it-
self to use in spectator sports shoes
and in opera pumps. The "checker-
board" is achieved by the combina-
tion, in strips, of baby and regular
alligator skins.
