alesmen Alibis Are Listed
Among Class Of '43's
Numerous Problems

A pair of dirty saddle shoes, a
baggy sweater and a limp hair ribbon
dragged themselves into a local coke
emporium last Tuesday night, prac-
tically broken in spirit, definitely
weak in body and doubly weak in
mind. Aah, an oriented freshman,
someone murmured.
"Humph," she retorted, "hardly
I'm the adviser!" Groaning, she
pointed out other weak and wavery
individuals who were reviving ala
coke. And no wonder. Seems one
adviser had one of her charges
bounce in at 8 o'clock shouting, "Hey,
TOOTS, what do I do now?" Enough
to unnerve anyone, don't you think?"
Yes, Flighty Freshmen
Another upperclassman who was
rather petite and flighty-and aren't
most freshmen flighty?-was worn
out from being shunted around.
Everybody was just too, too solicitous
about her getting lost on this 'beeg'
campus. They all thought she was
: just the type to'whom to explain the
ins and outs of college. In vain she
protested she was an adviser.:
Four others sighed and looked
sheepish. It seems that one wan-
dered around the third floor of the
League for ten minutes trying to find
her group until her assistant rescued
her. Two others had callously for-
gotten to warn the freshmen to bring
their registration material for the
health exam, and all twelve had to
walk miles to get it. No wonder the
doctors thought that that one group.
looked especially wan and anemic!
Ah! The Element Of Surprise
And yet another worn creature ex-
claimed that she believed in the
element of surprise. Instead of her
meeting the, group on the steps of7
natural seience, she sent around a 1
stooge (male . . . . hah!) to, pick
them up!
A -very bedraggled blond an-
nounced that she had told her
charge to meet in the evening on the
steps of Hill Aud. Little did she know
that all of the other 90 groups had
also been told to meet on the steps
of Hill Aud!!!
Children Give
Plays Annually
League Project Benefits
Turned Over To Youths
One of the most unique, as well as
worthwhile, activities sponsored byj
the University in the field of drama
is the Children's Theatre, a project ofj
the Theatre Arts Committee of the
Each year, for six years, University7
students and pupils from the public
schools of Ann Arbor have presented
a series of plays, open to the general
public, the benefits of which are
turned over to the children of Ann1
This year the Children's Theatre,
will present four plays instead of the'
customary three but the price of the
season'tickets will remain the same.
The opening number in the series
will be an adaptation of Hans Chris-
tian Anderson's "The Tinder Box,"
and will be followed by "Thanksgiv-
ing at Buckram Corners," a play writ-
ten especially for the project. A chil-
dren's musical, an adaptation of the
story of Dick Whittington and his1
cat, will be the third presentation,
while the final offering will be divided-1
in two parts, the first half of which,
will be a marionette show, and the
latter half, a dance pantomine en-,
titled "Cinderella."

It's an age-old story-that of fresh-
men getting choice spots near mid-
field, and upperclassmen suffering
the indignity of a lonely pew near
the end zone, but regardless of the
apparent snubbing of seniors who
have been the graduating class on
their ticket applications every year
since 1936, all students have the in-
side track when it comes to reserve
stadium seats which will be none too
plentiful this season.
Sales Almost Double
Ticket sales for the Michigan games
show an increase of 80 per cent over
last year's figures of the same date,
and the steady flow of incoming re-
quest points to a busy year for the
boy scout ushers, not to. mention the
Sunday morning cleanup crew.
All this renewed interest in Michi
gan football traces back to not so
long ago in 1938 when the Wolverine
football stock soared after a succss-
ful season. And plenty of the right
kind of publicity with a good team
to back it up this year is doing much
to stimulate sales.
Yale Draws Heaviest
The sons of old Eli are the main
attraction for the fans when the Yale
bulldog comes into Ann Arbor, Oct.
25 for the first time in 56 years, and
according to Harry Tillotson in
charge of sales at the oftices, of the
Board in Control of Physical Educa-
tion, Ferry Field, Michigan State,
Minnesota, and Ohio State follow in
the ticket demand. Mail orders have
been accepted since Aug. 20, and the
over-the-counter sale for each con-
test will begin a week before the
scheduled game.
There has been a boost in prices
this year. Michigan State tickets in
the side zones are up from $2.50 to
$2.75. End-zone seats have been up-
ped to $1.65 for all games, and season
tickets in the side sections are now
Second Girls'
Com-o Started
iLereThis Fall
Further evidence of the growing
interestin the cooperative movement
on campus is the opening of a see-
nd Girls' Cooperative"ouse located
at 328 E. Williams St. Chaperoned
by Mr. Robert E. Ewing of the his-
tory department and Mrs. Ewing, the
16 charter members are planning to
serve meals as soon as possible.-
Ann Arbor's first Girls' Coopera-
tive House is now located at 15111
Washtenaw Ave. Formerly at 517
E. Ann St., it is now entering its third
year of operation, enabling students
of limited means to live economical-t
ly and cooperatively.
The new house is more advantage-
ously located and is larger. Two
more members have been added to
the former number of 19.
Each girl is alloted seven hours of
work a week and may be assigned a
variety of tasks including purchas-
ing, menu planning, accounting, cook-
ing, cleaning, setting tables and
washing dishes. The jobs are rotated
in order to give members experience
which will be valuable later in life.
The more practical side of life is
supplemented by a social calendar
which includes teas, parties and pic-
nics. An education committee has
been established for the purpose of
inviting well-known professors and
townspeople to -speak on topics of
current interest.
At present both houses are filled
to capacity, but any women who are
interested in living in a cooperative

The date set for sorority pledging
has been chnaged to Sunday, Oct.
8 from Saturday, Oct. 7, Barbara
Bassett, '40, president of Panhellenic

This change was due to a conflict
with the first football game of the
year, the all-important Michigan-
Michigan State game, which is also
scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 7. Al-
though pledging occurs but once in
a lifetime for the new women, and

Clothes For Classroom Wear
Present Problem Number 000
They say when classes start, then of pearls and a tweed suit will fill

clothes from the various assortments
offered by enthusiastic merchants and
As a general class, pleated wool
skirts and long cardigans come first
in the hearts and wardrobes of most
campus women. But that statement
only roughly covers the situation.
Pleats, pressed and unpressed, stripes
both horizontal and vertical, plaids
of tartan colors and just plaids, large'
checks and small, kick pleats, or,
pleated from the belt, or even pleated
from the hips. No wonder the wom-
en of M have trouble deciding upon
what skirts to choose.
One model was seen on campus the
other day wearing a soft green jersey
skirt with unpressed pleats and seams
running up the middle instead of the
usual side seams. At that moment
a rose cardigan topped a white blouse,
and of course, with the last two but-
tons unbuttoned. However, the same
skirt has a red and green plaid lum-
berjacket blouse with a reversible
plaid and green hood which can be
snapped on when rainy weather

ored pleated skirt in a blue and yel-
low combination-the patriotic type,
no doubt. But it looked quite classic

And if the brooks type sweaters,
both cardigan and slip-overs, are aces
in sweaters, shirtmaker , blouses are
tops as far as blouses are concerned.
With their tailored collars and smart
lines, they are just the type to go with
the college woman rushing all over
campus and being busy in a very busi-
ness like manner. Who could imagine
frills or lace on such women?
These shirts furthermore are just
the types to be worn under sweaters,
white shirt collars over bright sweat-
ers cheering up dark winter days. And
on those days when it's chilly at
eight-o'clock and violently hot at
noon, a blouse and sweater combina-
tion comes in very handy. At this
time one can wear gold or silver ini-
tial pins at the throat or on top of
the first button.

But if pleatedskirts come first,
Igored or just skirts come second in
the eyes of class conscious women.
One upperclassman was seen in a 10-
gored orchid skirt with quite a flare.
She chose a white cardigan, and re-
fused to unbutton it at the bottom.
And why, we asked? The answer:
The designers had been foresighted
enough to omit the last button!
Another classic combination which
makes for comfort and smartness on
campus is the plain skirt with kick
pleats in front and back. One of
the bigger BMOC's on this campus
has a forest green skirt with a kick
pleat in front which can be buttoned
and unbuttoned for hiking Saturday
afternoons or even racing to a Mon-
day eight-o'clock.
And tweed skirts and jackets should
not be omitted from the roster. With
