Cooperation is
Dinner Theme
Of Panhellenic
Scholarship Award Given
To Phi Sigma Sigma
At BanquetYesterday
"Cooperation is when you and I
get together for the good of me," said
Harriet Heath in her talk on "Co-
operation in Rushing" at the fif-
teenth annual Panhellenic Banquet
held at 5:45 p.m. yesterday in the
Ballroom and Grand Rapids Room
of the League.
Nearly 800 attended the dinner at
which Hope Hartwig, in her talk on
"Panhellenic Cooperation With Oth-
er Organizations on Campus," com-
pared the University to a vast co-
operative house with Panhellenic as
one of the mutually dependent units.
Marcia Connell spoke on the "Jus-
tification of the Existence of Sorori-
ties." She read an open letter to
the sorority members of the Universi-
ty of Michigan from a graduate of
the class of 1939 in which she pointed
out such contributions made by sor-
orities as housing, helping to mold
student opening, an educational
agency, and social, ilitellectual and
cultural influences.
Ira Smith, registrar of the Univer-
sity, announced that Phi Sigma Sig-
ma was winner of the scholarship
award. Dean Alice Lloyd presented
the house with the Dean's office
scholarship award, and spoke on the
improvement in cooperation Panhel-
lenic Association has made' in the
past year.

Second Coffee
Hour Dance Is

Union Coffee Hour tea dances will
,ontinue with the second in this year's
series from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. to-
day in the small ballroem of the
Hostess for this week's cofee hour
is Mrs. Werner E. Bachman. Groups
who are especially invited include
Delta Gamma, Beta Theta Pi, Jordon
Hall and Allen House, although every-

Heinen, '40E, publicity chairman.
The purpose of the tea dances is to
provide a way through which students
may gather together and form new
friendships, James Palmer, '41E,
chairman of the coffee hours, stated.
It is by this -means that the Union
hopes to make the coffee hours serve
as an integrating influence for the1
entire student body. The need for
centralization of the student body is
greater in a university of this size,
Palmer emphasized.

It officially started last Friday morning at 11 a.m. after that last blue
book in international law; and after a thoroughly healthy week of ammonia
cokes, packs of cigarets, alarm clocks jangling at unearthly hours, it was
definitely the time for a few parties, one football game and still more parties.
Theta Chi, the Deke House, Sigma Phi, Alph Delt, Theta Delt, Beta, D.U.,
and Kappa Sig, just to mention a few of the places we saw people crashing
. ..! Triday night. Billions of people just poured into the
. ekehouse. Among those chasing a taxi to and fro
, were Ruthie Coler and Bob Lundgren and Midge Ford
and George Loomis. - On to Sigma Phi and Paul
Smith and Betty Purocher listening to, horrible if
we must admit it. a terrific rendition of "Scatter-
brain" by a few local lads.
Alpha Delt was informal but from all the extra
xcha'ngees it could have been formal. And zooming
around before splitting up and going to the Beta party and the Delta Upsilon
were Bill Thompson, Kay Dye, and Bill Hurley and Nancy Drew. More fun!
Charlotte Noble with Homer Bigelow and the rest- of the Beta bats were
doing all right: they just switched with Martha Bedford and Jerry Brenner
over at the Alpha Delt!!
They Get Aron.. .
Whisking over.to the Kappa Sig party at the League Hussey Room, we
ran into Geta Becker and Wes Caire making haste to get to the D.U. festi-
vities. Heard Betty Mandel, an ex-campuser from Grosse Pointe, was there
in much glory. And more G.P. news, Eileen Hayward came up and went to
Union, among places, with Don Treadwell. And yet more
fun. Also Berna Deane (Spook) Purgett, one of the
S.S.S. gals . . . and we don't mean Simple . . . was
there with Bud Schnier.
Andthenthefootballgame, letusnotmentionmuchabout-
saidgame,no. NO! But there were those whom just one
game couldn't stop. The Thetas, including Ginny More,
with Ed King, Phyllis Waters, taking Bill Downer and Harriet Thom with
Harvey Clarke, were celebrating via a pledge formal. Some of the celebra-
tions tore over to Phi Gafti house before things ended and what was there
to entertain them but a floor show, a one-man circus, or most likely a
publicity hunter out to impress the date? Nothing more than Dale Cham-
berlain standing on his hands and waving his legs on high. Date Milly Hul-
bert just stood by and giggled. Elmer Gideon also looked in on things and
then just disappeared; 160 miles is a long way to come for a game.
Here's one for that prize crocheted bathtub which is being handed down:
One stitch apiece for that interminable joke about the victrola which any
sports editor can reel off, and Prof. Vibbert's face when one of the Harvey
sisters demands to chan'ge the name of metaphysics (?) dep't. You can tell,
one's brain is giving out after the start of this much of the weekend.
And One For The Books...
And a poll which out-Gallups Gallup. Those people who write papers
on Study Habits and then try to find how many couples go out Saturday
night instead of studying. Taking honors as the hundredth couple to be
interviewd was Jeannie Barlund and Dave Red-
ner . . . You didn't know what it was for, did
you? And then in second place with the two
hundredth couple comes Frances Dikowicz and
Page Dinnel.
Chi Phi and names: Pat Patterson and Bob
Nelson and Mim Wendall and Bill Schuste. Phi
Psi and more names: Marian Ferguson and Ted
Sweeny, Nancy Chapman and Ted Kennedy.
And the Union with yet more names: Mary
Ellen Spurgeon and Harry Howell, and Chuck
Jasow and Marion Sugar of Detroit. And not
to forget Stinky Seabright and Em Whitehead
with billions of other Delts at their party. And more people that go to this
University. Phi B.D. with Marty Rudman and Marcia Cohodes, and Ernie
Salwen and Leona Gallow.

We wish to thank Beta Theta Pi, Kappa Sigma, Phi Beta Delta, Theta
Delta Chi, American Legion of Ypsilanti and Adrian.

Woolly Mittens Are
Excellent Insurance
Against Cold Winds
Suede or kid gloves may be all
right for dressy occasions, but when
it cones down to wearing gloves for
real warmth, mittens are your best
When you were a very little girl,
mittes were practical, not beautiful.
Today they combine both ;attributes.
One look at those soft angora mitts
in all their luscious shades to match
each different outfit should convince
anyone. White fur ones carry out
the "be-furred" idea that is so im-
portant this year.
A clever idea is to have your white
mittens embroidered with the words
"Yes" and "No." The, affirmative
word is 'placed coyly on the back of
one hand, the negative, bluntly on
the palm of the other. These are
the best conversation-making pieces
of the season.
Another ingenious lassie, forsaking
the ordinary glove shops, went to a
workman's supply store and picked up
a tremendous pair of yellow lamb-
skin gloves. No one mistakes her now
