Those pathetic individuals who
lined up hours early in the Union 1
yesterday only to see the 800 J-Hop
tickets signed away in 20 minutes need
not give themselves over wholly to
despair: tickets and table reserva-

morrow in the Union ballroom may
still be obtained.
However, this will be their last
chance until the second semester to

Benham pointed out that the bas-!

ame Saturday meant that tomorrow
iould be the only night suitable for,
ancing in the exams. Bill Sawyer,
,nd his band have taken "proper"
notice of the situation, and will act
accordingly, he promised, "whatever
hat means."
He emphasized that for tomorrow's
ling, one need not-indeed, one had
better not!--stru gle into formal at-
ire, for plans indicate "a rather
wild time" what with pigs, rabbits,
ducks and couples pushing, hopping
and waddling respectively. The ani-

icket-holders, but Benham made it
clear that the committee obviously
will not be responsible once the num-
ers are drawn.
Other prizes will be a football, bas-

port Coats Have
Pocket Emphasis
And Boyish Lines



Long before Paris fashions turned
toward the practical, so that French
women could still be in full style
while doing war work, the American
college girl made use of this secret to
smartness. And so it remains for
the sport coats of this bright mid-
A suggestion comes from a leading
Paris designer to start the pocket
trend. There'll be lots of them, for
instance, in the polo coats Ann Arbor
shops are now receiving, and the
spring coats they'll have in a few
weeks. One new style features of
a tie belt attached to the fitted
waist, "cash and carry" pockets over
the hips, and two smaller pockets on
each side of the collar.
Probably the most populiar polo
coat news is the "girl-boy" style.
These trim coats are fashioned ex-
actly like men's, with patch pockets
and notched collar, rows of stitching
in the hem and a slit back. Buttons,
however, will remain on the left side.
Chapter House
Activity Notes
The before-exam slump has reached
the fraternity and sorority houses,
whose main activities for the week
have been exchange dinners.
Alpha Gamma Delta
A party for the patronesses of Al-
pha Gamma Delta, and their hus-
bands, was held last nigh.
Alpha Epsilon Pi
Alpha Epsilon Pi and Sigma Alpha
Nu held an exchange dinner yester-
Theta Chi
Theta Chi held an exchange dinner
yesterday with Delta Delta Delta.

September-Ex-high scnhool stu-
dents were seen wandering over the
campus equipped with maps and class
schedules. Were identified by wild'
look in their eyes.
October-=Old Grads returned to
former haunts and sports editor ran
wild. Air was notably cool and crisp
except home-game Saturdays when
the temperature swung from 91 in
the shade to 5 above zero and back
November-Upper-classmen worked
up their usual quota of ire over a
one-day holiday Thanksgiving, while
freshman started their homeward
trek jubilantly.
December-First two weeks were
devoted to shirking classes in prepar-
ation for "catching up" over vaca-
tion. Whiskey Special reservations
were made early and Detroit people
again felt cheated. Last two-weeks-
we leave that to you.
January--First week was spent be-
wailing the fact that we hadn't
cracked a book since November, and
that there are less than three weeks
before exams. Notable increase in
library attendance was observed. Wo-
men began drowning their sorrows
in day-dreams of J-Hop. Men also
drowned their sorrows.
