Petitioning For

Assembly Come-Across



...of cabbages
We might warble forth in true Garlandish fashion "My weekend has
been such a loooov ly weekend," but instead we'll just get down to business
and report the happenings around old Ann Arbor town.
The weekend started early for the lucky divvils who went to Philly for the
game. Doug Bennett, Tony DePalmeri, Ted King and Tommy Williams
were among those who left on the train Thurs-
day. The trip was fun, 'tis reported.
Back in A2 Friday night; the .engineers threw
away their slide rules, donned top hats and tails
and went to their annual Ball. We saw two
Kappa Sigs there with their women, Jeffries Pace
with Caro'yn Denfield and Andy Ashburn with
Marjorie Stock. Their fraternity brother, Jack
Callouette, was there with Betty Lou Robinson.
Standing around listenin' to the Clyde Lucas
Band were Betty Clark and Bob Read, Carolyn
Denfield and Jeff Pace, Betsy Lightner and
Harold Simley and Marion Price and Frank Peacock.
Dancing at the League Friday were J. T. Lamb and Mary Spaeth, Lois
Basse and Dave Allen, Betty Pusch with Johnny Gillis and Roberta Leete
and Jack Gelder.
Dashing way out Washtenaw-way to the Zeta Beta Tau House Party
we saw Muriel Fishman and Milt Peterman, Betty Hamburger and Jerry
Mecklenburger, Elaine Barth and Doug Rosen and Madeline Kaufman and
Bob Kann admiring the very original decorations. Seems the Zebs wens
artistic and had a bevy of masculine pulchritude adorning their walls. All3
of the fraters were depicted in caricature!3
Back at Philadelphia the next- afternoon, some very happy Michigan;
chums were busy celebrating at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel. Laura Katz-,
enal, Sue Potter, Jean McKay and Mary Ellen Spurgeon were among those
attending the open house after the game. Also at the Bellevue-Stratford,;
Michigan headquarters for the weekend, were Ellen MacDonald, Sylviaa
Pritzker, and Phyllis Eisen. Several of the old (?) alums were there: Saul7
Kleiman taking time off from his Washington
Post job, Fred Warner Neal of the class of '38,
and Baltimore's youngest executive, Gene
Christian, '39.
Saturday morning the JGP girls met for a-
central committee meeting. Presiding over the 1
little group was chief Jane Grove, with her able
assistant Annabel Van- Winkle . . assisting.
Ruth Fitzpatrick, Ginny Osgood and Betty Ann Chaufty joined in the gen-
eral uproar, as once again discussion turned to whether or not men should
be permitted to declaim the sacred lines of JGP.1
That's all for now chilluns; after all some of us DO study at Michigan.
Happy Thanksgiving. to you all, and VATCH THAT DRVMSTICK!1

RealBeauty Is
Eas To Attain
WithMa ke-up,
Let's be beautiful, and surprise
the men by showing them that we
can be the sporty, athletic, or glam-
orous type of personality all rolled
into one, depending upon the make-
up we use, the key by which each,
girl can unlock her real beauty for
all the world to see.
New and exciting shades of pow-
der are designed especially to blend
in with the color scheme of your
clothes, as well as for your engage-
ment. A peach undertone in your
powder will go well with your foot-
ball outfit and give you that healthy
outdoor appearance. Bright red lip-
stick, not too dark, will set you off
for an afternoon of fun.
Be glamorous in the evening when
you are setting out for a formal
dance. Make your entrance drama-
tic in a fluffy white tulle dress by
using a rosy shade of powder which
will give your skin a glow and
warmth under artificial lights. Or
don a sophisticated cover-up dress,
and wear a powder with a mauvish
or violet tint in it, which will work
miradcks under tight lights.
Also, for evening, wear a darker
shade of lipstick with a blue or
purple cast to it. Daytime colors
are apt to look dell at night. If you
want to wear eye shadow be sure
you use the same color as your eyes
for that's what sets them off well.
Make-up can make or break your
appearance. Let's be beautiful but
not too startling.

wary E. Sweeney, assistant director
of the Merrell-Palmer School in De-I
troit. -
Miss Sweeney attended the Inter-
national Missionary Conference in
Madras, India, last year, and it is
from her experience as adviser for
the section of the Conference on
home and family life that she draws
her answer to the peace problem.
"I feel that a successful pattern for
true internationalism can be found
in the International Missionary Con-
ference," Msis Sweeney stated, "Their
fprogram is planned to further the,
extension of the highest standards
of home and family life throughout
the world."
