Frosh Frolic Is Scheduled For March 1, Gibson Ann




Unaesthe tic, Dirty
Saddle Shoe Fad
To Stay Forever
Of all the fads college women have.
adopted and discarded, the saddle
shoe shows signs of remaining for-
ever. Why thousands of otherwise
sensible women have taken to their
heart such an unaesthetic piece of
footge r is more than one can pos-
sibly understand.
College women, realizing that new
saddles suggest a tennis game in sum-
mer rather than long hours of tramps
to classes through slushy streets, let
their shoes tecome as filthy as pos-.
sible, proudly boasting that they have
never cleaned them. - Thus they sub-
stitute sloppiness for style.
To add insult to injury, nothing
gives a woman greater joy than to be
able to wear her beloved saddles out
on a date. No longer does she care
to impress her man by a stunning out-
The only hope for a new day in
footwear is that more men form
"Thank God For Sunday, Because on
Sunday Women Do Not Wear Saddle
Shoes" clubs.

Late Permission Granted
Women; Orchestra And
Theme Will Be Chosen
Frosh Frolic, one of the four big
class dances of the year, will be held
from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, March
1 in the Union ballroom.
Central committee positions for
the dance are held by Edgar Gibson.

trons chairman; James Pierce, mu-
sic chairman; James Morrison, pro-
gram chairman: Richard Schoel, dec-
orations chairman; Jerome Klein,
tickets chairman, and Rosamond
Meyer and Howard Wallach, co-
chairmen of publicity.
2:30 Peimission Granted
The office of the Dean of Women
has granted 2:30 a.m. permission for
the dance. Frosh Frolic will be the
second class dance of the year to have
late permission granted.
The theme and orchestra of the
Frolic will be announced at a later
date, Gibson said. Tommy Tucker
and his orchestra played for the
dance last year. A nautical theme
of decorations, centering around a
large pilot's wheel, was used, and
guests were required to enter the ball-
room by a gangplank. Ship's railings
were placed around the band-stand
ind the patrons' and chaperons'
Color Scheme Was Nautical
The color scheme was worked out
in the nautical hues of blue and
white, with the metal programs of.l
silver and blue also carrying out
the theme of decorations.
The price of the tickets and the
date of the ticket sale will be an-
nou'nced at a later date, but as the
number of tickets to be sold is limit-
ed, couples are urged to plan on get-
ting their admission early.
The ticket sale will be limited to
freshmen, but if there are any admis-
sions left over, upperclassmen may9
also attend the dance, Gibson said.
Over 350 'couples attended Frosh
f Frolic, which is the annual fresh-
man class dance, last year.
New Pearl Mode Seen
Classic one-strand pearl necklaces
are making way for their two, three,
four and even greater number of
strand sisters. Loose hanging or;
twisted, these larger necklaces are
always in style.

Over Here


A bottle of sugar-coated Benze-
drine Sulphates and honorary mem-
bership in the SPCC (Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Children)
go to members of Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon for the timely construction of a
perfectly gorgeous skating pond and'
the possession of the slipperiest hill
in Ann Arbor.
We make this presentation on be-
half of the children (aged 5 to 25)
living in the vicinity of Washtenaw
and South University, for whom the
SAE bowl has proved a haven of
refuge in these perilous times. What's
more, we'll mark off the high stock-
ing bill as a necessary evil attend-
ing the pursuit of happiness down
the long hill when one insists on rid-
ing on a tin tray.
Not that we like changing the sub-
ject-but have you noticed the li-
brary situation lately? It's getting
so bad people are skipping dessert
to get a ring-side seat near the book-
desk, and outside reading lists are im-
possible. It brings out the wolf in us
to watch the man ahead get the book
we waited two hours for.
Our candidate for Sorriest Man of
the Week is the lad who went through
educational psychology and the his-
tory of education in order to get Mc-
Clusky for dessert, and then had him
accept that job with the something-
or-ndthing organization for next se-
mester. Second in line is the Ec
major who has to have nine hours of
international trade to graduate, and
who can only get eight since they
cancelled a course.
Definition of an optimist-one who
goes around smelling the air and
watching for trees to bud when the
thermometer registers zero. Believe
it or not-these animals do exist.

Cinderella and her prince may have
lived happily ever after, but had they
not had the atmosphere required for
the success of their love affair, the
story might have been altogether dif-
ferent. The last children's play for
this season is the dance pantomime
All those interested in working on
the scenery for "Cinderella" are re-

"Get the SCHILLER Habit"

f'SHIRRING FOR ALL TYPES of siple date dresses is essential for
that chic appearance.. so necessary to youn moderns. It appears on
both sheer wools and silk crepes and is often combined with applique
and stitching for better tailoring. The models shown above combine
both these features to attain the well-groomed feeling in their style,
but are dressy enough for all occasions.
League To Adopt New Records
To0" Credit Activity Participation

In an effort to credit every woman'
fully with the interest she has shown
in League activity participation, the1
League Council has adopted a new
form sheet which will be used by com-
mittee chairmen to keep an accurate
record of the quality of work done by
committee members.
These records will be filed in Miss
McCormick's office with each wo-
man's activity record and will be re-
ferred to by the Judiciary Council as
an aid in selecting women for com-
mittee chairmanships. A separate
report will be filed for each League
activity in which she participates.
"Such a record will give each wo-
man credit for her work regardless
of the importance of her particular

ance, leadership qualities , original-
ity and dependability.
It is interesting to note that this
form of recording interests shown
through activity participation arose
out of the trouble's of the committee
chairmen of Capricorn Capers' in try-
ing to judge the work done by their
Jeanne Grant, '41, recording chair-
man for the dance, thereby originated
this form sheet in order to give each
of the chairmen a definite basis upon
which to report upon the work done
by the members of her committee.
