New Hit In Stockings
Guarantees No Runs
Silk stockings have given many col-
lege women a run for their money.
One very recent proposal for elim-
ination of this menace constitutes.
substituting knee length woolen
stockings with turned over tops. With
these stockings, short short skirts
above the knees are to be worn.
Though this style has not breezed
across the Michigan campus and
swept the ultra-smart off their feet,
its popularity can still be anticipat-
One of the short-comings of this
completely new and revolutionary
idea is the requirement of figure

Late Rushees
Must Register
Women who are being rushed dur-
ing informal rushing must register at
the Undergraduate office of the
League to be eligible for pledging.

rushing rules being used by Panhel-
lenic Association this year. Formerly
registration was compulsory .only
during the formal rushing period.
Those women who registered for
formal rushing and did not pledge
need not re-register but will be eli-
gible for further rushing by leaving
their names at the Undergraduate
Barbara Bassett, '40, president of
Panhellenic Association, announced
that she would have office hours
from 3:30 p m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday

anyone wishing to register or to leave
their names as having registered dur-
ing the formal rushing period.

New Pledges Announced

'Dates' Officer Inaugurated
"You see," he continued more
calmly, "if a man on this campus
wants a date with an attractive girl,'
he must either go steady with her or
call her weeks in advance. If a law-
yer were to do that, he wouldn't be
a lawyer," he concluded logically
enough. And so evolved the idea of
the "dates" officer.
"How did we choose him? That's
easy. We picked the best-looking
boy in the house, the one who was
never at a loss for dates himself,
and commissioned him to keep up
the good work, only on a larger scale.
Dislike Typical Coeds
As for the girls themselves, the
only prerequisites are that they must
be lots of fun and fairly attractive.

Tea will be served following the
Ann Arbor Independent's first busi-
ness meeting of the year, to be held
at 3 p.m. Sunday, in the Ethel Foun-
tain Hussey Room of the League.
Officers of the group will explain
their duties to the new members, as
well as the functions of Assembly
and the League in relation to the or-.
'ganization. The Ann Arbor Indepen-
dents are one of three members of
Assembly along with the Dormitories
and League Houses. Officers for this
year are: Frances Herdrich, '40,
president; Betty Hall, '41, first vice-
president; Mary Jean O'Donnell, '41,
social chairman; Daisy Bihary, '40,
secretary; Adelaide Carter, '42, mem-
bership chairman.1
