Letter Box
To the Editor
If you're flunking history examina
tions and tired of blue books in gen-
eral; if, momentarily, you would like
to forget the hectic movement known
as "college life" and have one whizz-
ing good time, we sophomores have a
solution. It's "Winter Wonderland"!
Yes, it's. sophomore cabaret!
We think that one of the super
things about "Winter Wonderland"
will be the special dances. With
-ihree group dances, "soft shoe,"
"kicking routine" and "ice . ballet
skating number," who wouldn't con-
sider it a real carnival? Oh yes--
we hear there will be a solo dance,
and possibly a dance team too.
As for skill we predict the very best
inasmuch as experienced dancers
have been choosen. Already rehear-
sals are being held weekly and cos-
tums are being planned by members
of the committee. In short we like
the idea, you'll have fun, so come
on-let's all go to "Winter Wonder-
- A Sophomore Spy.

Hlonrse Coats Are Gay



Good morning, Joes and Josies and all the rest of you slurps still at sea:
FLASH: or maybe just a flicker. What Trigon man whose first name is
Tom, and whose last name is spelled C-A-L-D-W-E-L-L walked around the
fraternity's "Pre-Victory Ball" Friday night with a lengthy
and unhappy look because his gal from the old home town
(Bucyrus, O.) failed to show up as per schedule? Tom says
the train broke down, but this column asks: Could she have
had a premonition about the game, maybe?
Sleep-walking (no other words could describe the con-
torticns dancers seem to go through nowadays) at the Union
Friday night, were Joan Davidson and Joe Reed, Tozn Jensen and Ruth Cal-
kins, Jack Erwin and Marty Bedford, and Caroline Rayburn and Bud Davis.
Mob Scene .4 Pledge Formal...
Included in the mob scenes at Alpha Gamma Delta's pledge formal were'
Fran Martin and Larry Wick, Bobbie Lairburn and Tom Zeerit, Leona Hen-
derson and Chuck Collins, Jane Reshore and Jack Calouette, and Mary Ellen
Alt and John Alderidge. Nice mob.
Following the band down to the Stadium were little Edie Leveene and
"Bruiser" Nadler, Ellen Cuthbert and Kermit Webb, Mary Henderson and
Dick Sinn. At the game, yelling with the bestof
them when the . turkey's head was cut were John.
Lehner and Joan Voles, and Jim Lovett (keep an eye.
on this lad when the hockey season opens up, andd
don't say we didn't tell you so) with Ilene Bonnette.
Comes now an intermission-to get you rested be-
fore the deluge of Saturday night parties begins-so
we now present in miniature "Limitations on Life" o :
What Went on at the ASU Africongo Ball the night
before Thanksgiving. And all through the house, a
whole raft of creatures, including Jimi'py Green and June Harris, Stan, Leib-
ergott and Ruth Wellington, Harry Purdy and Anabel Hill, were be-stirring
themselves with fitting revelry.
Orchids To The Fraternities .
Orchids to the fraternity houses Saturday night. They really outdid
themselves-ask any Ann Arbor gal if you don't believe us. So many parties
that wIe just had time for a few minutes' keyholing at each one, but at the
Kappa Sig radio dance we saw Mary Allen and Carl Wein, and Fran. Mary
Anderson with John Hays at the Sigma Chi likewise dance.

Woman Medical Student
Earned M.D. In 1899;
Is Known For Travels
When there were yet some who be-
lieved that the place of woman must
always be in the home, Mary Mc-
Kibbin-Harper, nee Mary McKibbin
of .Frankfort Springs, Pa., '99M, felt
sure, even at the tender age of 14,
that she would some day be a woman
Dr. McKibbin-Harper entered the
University in 1895 after being award-
ed a prize vWhich gave the winner
three mronthy of travel in Europe and
a' laboratory course at ."Weisbaden.
obtained M.D. In 1899
She returned DtMcKeesport, Pa.,
after taking her M.D. in 1899 and
with the helpful cooperation of medi-
'cal men and the public, she quickly
established a practice: "I felt like a
penny dropped in 'the middle of a,
-puddle, but with a keen sense of ad-
venture for building a practice," she
said. "Trained in the University of
Michigan where there is no sex in
medicine, I never developed an in-
feriority complex and after 25 years,
may say that I have experienced
neither opposition nor prejudice be-
'causeI am a woman doctor."
Practiced In Chicago
One of the 'early highlights of 23
years of medical practice in- Chicago
was the ridiculous, high-wheeled
buggy 'automobile which often stuck
In the mud and more often stalled. A
CGolles fracture, from cranking, is
adequate reminder of that antique,
She reminisced:
Known in medical circles for her
travels, Dr. Mckibbin-Harper made
five 'European tours. During the.
course of her travels she attended
clinics in London, Paris, Berlin anr

Vienna and took a short course at
Newnham College, Cambridge.
In 1925, she made a world tour last-
ing one and one-half years which
was exceedingly productive. Armed
with introductions from Aine ican
and English doctors to medical wom-
en all over the world, she gathered
much material for articles which
were published in the Medical Review
of Reviews of New York.
Dr. McKibbin-Harber was appoint-
ed editor of the American Medical
Women's Association while yet in the
Orient and has just retired after
serving as editor for 12 years. She
still acts in an advisory capacity,
however. In 1929 she was - further
honored by being chosen as delegate
to the International Congress of
Medical Women in 'Paris.
Inspected Hospitals
From there she went to Greece and
Turkey to inspect American Wom-
en's Hospitals, which care for more
Sthan a million refugees in the inter-
change of population, the Smyrna
fire and the tragic trek from Ana-
tolia, in three hospitals and 175 clin-
ics in Greece.
One of Dr. McKibbin-Harper's
many and interesting hobbies is the
International Dickens Fellowship'
founded in London, in 1902, with
literary and philanthropic purposes,
for which she has founded branches
in Chicago, Berkeley, and Pittsburgh.
A lecturer on nutrition and hygiene
to clubs and factory girls, she was
the first in her community to proffer
medical service to needy dependents
of soldiers of the World War.

House coats are indispensible to
every woman's wardrobe. For
lounging and studying for those'
mridsemesters this season's bright
styles decorate the corridors of
every dormitory and sorority.
Coats MustBe
And Practical
First prerequisite for college en-
trance is a sport coat-the kind that
will keep you warm and will stand
up'under all sorts of strange weather
phenomena nd rough usage.
Your coat must be good-looking be-
sides. You can never tell when the
date that starts with a coke at the
Parrot will end up with dancing at
the Union. If you are not the type
that looks her best in the loose, baggy
type coat which seems to have been
campus regulation for the past five
years, cheer up. Fitted sport coat
are the thing this year and almost
everyone looks well in these. They
also do away with that sloppy appear-
ance that the men have been deplor-
ing to no avail for so long.
Reversibles Improved
Our new reversibles have lost that
"I gypped it from my brother" look.
They, too, are fitted and some ever
have the padded shoulders which are
so new. According to a recent survey,
the college woman of today, in order
to be considered beautiful, must have
broad shoulders and slirhi hips. If
that is true, the new sport coats are
doing their best to make modern
Venuses of all of us. Any complaints?
The reefer classic is always flatter-
ing, and just as much in style thia
year as ever before. Get one of thew
in a multi-colored tweed, add fui
reverses and you have the perfeci
spectator sport coat.
Three-Piece Suit Ideal
The three-piece suit-jacket, skirt
and long coat with or without a fur
collar-is the answer to the college
girl's proverbial prayer. Wear the
parts separately or together and i:
you are ingenious you will have
enough outfits to take you smartl3
through the year, from registratior
to graduation.
No one blames the girl who silent-
ly mutters nasty words at the design-
ers who decreed the hour-glass fig.
ure and the torturous methods of at-
taming it.
