Panhellenic Dinner Heads'
Selection To Be Made
Interviewing for committee chair-

Over Here



They may swallow goldfish at Har-
vard, but at Michigan they knit! Not
that we dare generalize on the mat-
ter-it's strictly the women who knit.
Yep, the pendulum swings back.
Long skirts and knitting needles inr
1919, short skirts and wine glasses in
'29, short skirts and knitting needles
in '39. Quite a combination, when
you consider this machine-mad age
Iwe quote).
But there's plenty of method in
':uch madness. The woman who sits
and knits at meeting may look quaint-
iy domestic, but she's really very
smart. Take the finished product,
'rinstance. Not only is the hand-
knitted sweater good-looking, but it'a
much less expensive.
And then there's the angle on sav-
ing time (or finding a better way
to waste it.) There's a certain fasci-
nation about watching a piece of
< knitting grow and the ball of yarn
diminish which can keep your mind
off history for hours, and at the
Name time provide, a soothing balm
for the conscience.
Here's a tip to the confirmed anti-
knitting female. it's easy and it's fun,
and there's a woman here on campus
whose business it is to correct all
your mistakes. Don't let your best
friend tell you that you'd best start
on something ; simple--like scarfs.
They're terribly dull-you'll never
get beyond the first ten rows if you
follow her advice.
There it is-the answer to all your
conscience problems. The perfect
solution of what to do while indulg-
ing in a bit of a bull session, useful
form of relaxation when the cares of
the academic world become too
heavy, and something to take your
mind off your ears while you're under
the drier.
