College Education
Is Valuable Asset
To Police-Woman
Who knows-maybe you too will be-
come a policewoman some day! And
if you do, you will always consider
your college career an indispensable
asset if you have used it to the great-
est advantage, Miss Mariana Chock-
ley, Detroit policewoman, told fresh-
men women yesterday.
Miss Chockley, the first speaker in
the orientation lecture series, spoke
yesterday on her work in the Detroit
police department. First outlining
the' organization of the department
she then described the purpose of
various divisions, and finally told her
audience of the invaluable help she
has found her education in the Uni-
versity to be in her present work.
Extra-curricular activities are ex-
tremely worthwhile, Miss Chockley
said, but academic excellence. is
equally desirable, and too often the
struggle to excel in activities causes
a student to neglect his scholastic

Over Here


By popular decree-April Fool's
Day moved up to Oct. 11 on the
Michigan campus. Registrar's
office pulls annual joke by releas-
ing "identification" pictures
Sure cure for those early morning
blues was a trip by Room 4, University
Hall, yesterday. Long cues of ex-
pectant students formed before the
windows, each individual primed for
the best laugh of the year as he re-
peated his name and held out his
They Laugh About It!
No one was disappointed. A faint
rumble could be heard in the hall all
day, and within the room, the ac-
cumulated chuckles added up to little
short of a din.
Identification pictures are a sugar
coated pill-we all have to admit that.
As a passport to football, basketball,
baseball and track events they're little
short of heaven-sent, and when the
time arrives to assert one's opinion on
election day they're a necessary evil.
Does Diplomacy Pay?
But the long and short of it is that
they're funny. It makes it rather dif-
ficult to know how to handle the
situation when your best friend shows
you her card. Question-is it better
to burst out laughing and then cover
up with a quick comment on the fact
that it "doesn't look a bit like you,"
or quietly and convincingly (you
hope) remark that it's as good as they
Just so you'll see what we mean-
there's the case of the Don. Juan who
absent-mindedly forgot to shave his
upper lip and .for the rest of the year
must flash a, card that makes him
look like a. suave edition of Simon
Legree. And the sullen type is no less
flattering. Particularly when the sad
possessor is on the happy side when
it comes to dispositions.
Alpha Kappa Psi Holds
Founders' Day Program
Alpha Kappa Psi, business admin-
istration fraternity, celebrated foun-
ders' day Oct. 5 at the chapter house.
Prof. W. 'A. Paton of the Business
Administration School was the prin-
cipal speaker:
The date marked the 35th anni-
versary of the 'founding of theG fra-
ternity and the 19th year of the open-
ing of the local chapter. The frater-
nity sponsors 1 a series of speakers
which is open to the entire campus.
Pledging Is Announced
Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity an-
nounces the i pledging of Jack Mur-
ray, '40, of Bay City; Darwin Bost-
wick, '43, of Flint, and John Erpeld-
ing, '43, of Chicago, Ill.

This . two-piece slack suit makes
an ideal lounging costume, especi-
ally for those fortunates without
Saturday classes.
League's Sa
System ALMS.
To Please All
"Stags" at dances have tradition-
ally been a cause for violent dissen-
tion between many an otherwise con-
genial twosome. For obvious reasons,
the average women highly approves
of them while her date finds them a
great inconvenience. Accompanying
the announcement that the League
ballroom =will; be open to stags Friday
nights is acarefully devised system
which was planned to conciliate both
Each week a different group of
women will act as hostesses to single
men, and cutting will be permitted
only among these women, regular
couples attendingsthe dance as usual.
In this way, a woman may have an
evening of variety in dancing partners
ocacsionally, while she will be free
most evenings to devote all her time
and attention to her date. The stag
admission price will be 65 cents in-
stead of the usual one dollar.
Cellophane hairbows will identify
the 34 women who have chosen to act
as hostesses for the first dance under
the new plan, to be held Friday Ten
women from the League Council are
included on the list.
