Hlouse Dreetor
Denies Legend
Of Dainty Diet
"Sugar and spice and everything
nice" may be the poet's idea of what
little girls are made of, but Miss
Sarah Rowe, -house director of Mar-
tha Cook building, has learned from
experience that these dainties are
insufficient to maintain the constitu-
tions of college women.
Miss Rowe finds that a bushel of
potatoes a day is barely enough to
satisfy the appetities of her large
family, and butter disappears at the
rate of eight to ten pounds a day.
True, however, to a woman's pre-
rogative of changing her mind, the
college woman's appetitie varies con-
siderably from day to day, due to the
weather, the menu or to no assign-
able cause. There is also a great
difference in the group tastes of the.
women in the dormitory in succeed-,
ing years. Certain dishes which were:
';olitely but firmly returned to the:
kitchen untouched one year will be
greatly relished by a new group the
next year. Salads and ice cream,
are always popular, however, Miss
Rowe has found.,
During finals there is a decided
Decrease in food consumption and

Galoshes May Be Prosaic
But Shoes Deserve Them
If those heavy galoshes which the
weather has forced you to wear make
you cast disparaging glances at your
feet, why not use them to protect a
new pair of shoes and thus think
more kindly of these institutions?
Spectators and dressy pumps are
featured. Gabardine, highlighted:! with
various leathers, is the favored fabric
for the new footwear.
For less dressy occasions, an alli-

gator tipped spectator of c

"This broadcast has come direct to
you from the campus of the Uni-
versity at Ann Arbor" are the words
ending the several weekly programs
presented from the local broadcast-
ing studio.
Behind these words and the fifteen
minutes of music and drama which
precedes them lies the activity of
numerous students-the author, the
director, the sound production man
and the actors themselves. The germ
of these activities lies in the speech
classes in radio work.
Students Write Scripts
"This class-will take over the broad-
cast on Thursday at 2:45." With this
announcement by Prof. Waldo Abbot,
instructor of one such class, the series
of events which will be climaxed by
a complete fifteen minut program
is set in motion.
A script has been selected from
those written by students who are
especially interested in this end of
radio work, or from the work sub-
mittted by the students in the special
script writing class. Casting of the.
short drama.which will be presented
is made in class.
"Three men are needed, one a son.
Let's hear you say, 'Boy this is good
turkey dressing'." With such infor-
mal tryouts, individual's voices are
tested for age and suitability. Each
student has several opportunities for
actual broadcasts throughout the
Last Minute Preparations
After the selection of the cast and
a sport run through the script dur-,
ing class, the students meet for at
least one rehearsal before actual pre-.
santation of the program.
A few minutes before the program
is to go on the air the students strike
an attitude of nonchalance, but there
is an air of last-minute tension. Thdy
announcer runs through the last few
lines of the script. "Drag them out,
Mary, till we switch to the Detroit
station. Let's have a music insertion
before that last sentence."
The minute hand of the clock in the
control, room nears the 60 second
mark-the light flashes-the Univer-
sity of Michigan is on the air!
The announcer finishes her lines.
One by one the student actors follow

each other at the microphone. Sound
effects come in their proper order as
the miniature door is opened and
closed, the phonograph played for the
roaring of the motor car, the jingling
of change on a table heard. The
hand of the controlman indicates
that the program is running smooth-
ly: The announcer steps up for her
final lines. As the musical back-
ground fades out the program is re-
turned to Detroit.
Criticisms of the program are dis-
cussed at the opening of the next
hour class. With new points learned
the class is ready to swing into an-
other production.
This is the background and atmos-
phere that lies behind the broadcasts
"direct to you from the campus of
