Madelon Louisa Stockwell Hall
Is Answer To Housing Needs

Ski-Suits Pervade Winter Fashions

Ninety-nine years of dormitories
on the Michigan campus will be
marked by Madelon Louisa Stock-
well Hall for use second semester.
Mason Hall, originally a dormitory,
was the first building used for this
Purpose and was opened in 1841. It
was built at a cost of $16,000. The
Hall was-110 feet long and 40 feet
wide and the original plan provided
for 64 rooms and 32 studies. This
plan was later changed to include a
chapel and recitation rooms on the
first and second floors, a library on
third, and a museum on the fourth
Two Buildings Built
Two buildings had been built for
residence halls by 1850 but were not
a success, so President Henry P. Tap-
pan ended the use of these halls as
dormitories in that year.
On Jan. 5, 1870 the action was tak-
en by the Board of Regents which


would admit women to the Univer-
sity. This admission meant that iesi-
dence halls for women would be the
next step in dormitory history.
Martha Cook Building and Helen
Newberry Residence were opened in
1916. Both residences were private
gifts. 117 women may be accom-
modated in Martha Cook and land
was given with this building to pro-
vide a permanent garden. Helen
Newberry was built to accommodate
82 women.
Betsy Barbour A Gift
Betsy Barbour House was also a
private gift and 88 women enter that
hall when it was opened.
In September, 1934, Mosher-Jordan
Halls were opened. It was the largest
residence yet built on the campus,
and was composed of two units,
Mosher Hall and Jordan Hall, each
of which has its own dining rooms
and living rooms. 434 women are
living in the two at present. The
building was named after two deans
of women of the University, Eliza M.
Mosher and Myra B. Jordan.

Deadline s Set
Appointments To Be Made
Before Thursday, Feb. 8
Annabel Van Winkle, '41, chairman
of patrons for JGP, announced yes-
terday that the absolute deadline for
health re-checks will be Thursday,}
Feb. 8. a
Appointments should be made
soon as possible at the Health Serv-
ice, and the deadline has been ex-
tended so that everyone may obtain
their cards.
No credit will be given to any junior
woman working on a JGP committee
either this semester or next, Miss
Van Winkle said, unless these cards
are turned in. Senior re-checks are
to begin early next semester at the
Health Service, so that it will be im-
possible for them to give their time
to juniors after the deadline.
Miss Van Winkle will also be in
the Undergraduate Office of the
League from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
today to sign eligibility cards, which
must be done in order to receive
credit for work done on the project.

pointment at the Health Service
should call her at 2-4514.

letic Association will convene at a
conference Feb. 23, 24 and 25 at Ann

clave. Heading the committees will
be Alice Braunlich, '41, chairman of
finance; Miriam Szold, '40, hospital-
ity; Norma Kaphan, '41, registration;

Over 30 delegates are expected at
the conference, which is the first of
its kind attempted by the Women's
Athletic Associations of Michigan.
To Offer Entertainment
In addition to the discussions, which
are planned, delegates will attend
several luncheons and dinners. The
committee in charge has also arranged
an evening of entertainment.
"It has been found that many
of the individual chapters of the
Women's Athletic Association are
faced with the same problems. It
is hoped that through the use of panel
discussions a solution to these prob-
lems will be reached to the mutual
benefit of all concerned," said Miss
Allison, today.
This is to be the first conference of
the kind to be held in Ann Arbor, and
will provide an opportunity for co-
operation among Michigan chapters.

Parisians' Wardrobes
You've heard a lot about Paris's
determination to keep the fashion
crown, war or no war. Maybe you
don't realize to what extent they're
going to be able to combine the two.
For the sake of atmosphere, French
fashion magazines have their models,
all dressed up in sequins and fur,
pose on crate boxes or descending
cellar steps, and drawings of young
ladies wearing the latest styles don't
include escorts dressed in tails or
English tweeds, but in uniforms.
Use National Colors
Magazine presentation is not all.
In styles themselves #they've decided
to have the world follow. Red, white
and blue, national colors for France
as well as the United States, are much
in evidence. All gay colors are used,
perhaps to brighten up the spirit of
"les militaires" home on leavn .
Perhaps you've already heard of the
pocket trend. Because French wo-
men need lots of pockets in war work,
they're determined to make them as
smart as possible. The result is
"everybody's doing it," for housecoats
through sport clothes to evening
dresses. Speaking of sport clothes,
Paris is, for the first time, emphasiz-
ing them above all else, and they're
being produced both pretty and prac-
tical. Suits are naturally a favorite,

most of them with flaps, that are
sewed on only at the top. if they're
not attached all around it seems that
much more can be put in them.
Hairseal Shoes Are New
For their own convenience, France
will have America conscious of prac-
tical shoes, not that the college girl
isn't so already. One of their novel-
ties are low heeled shoes covered with
hairseal skin. Another is the adop-
tion of spats for women's shoes. Cos-
tumes much like'ski-suits are worn
in air raid shelters, so many clever
styles can be expected to come for
the snow that falls on this side of the
A drawing factor for the popularity
of styles is the possibility of ap-
proaching them to the styles of the
last war. So evening dresses will be
very dominated by lace. Other feat-
ures for the evening is a trend for
covering up more, and for wearing
jackets. Paris has already gotten us
evening sweater conscious.
Naturally hats have given up the
nonsensical. In comparison to those
of past years they're so-o close fit-
ting and so-o simple. The word is
for skull caps, hats with drapes, and
turbans. But one thing seems sure,
the predominant Paris fad of hoods
started here in America.
Mosher Hall Residents
Pay Honor To Mrs. Ray
At an honorary dinner held last
night, Mosher Hall residents said
good-bye to their house mother, Mrs.
Martha Ray who will leave the dormi-
tory second semester to take up her
duties as social director of Stockwell
Hall. Her work will be carried on in
Mosher by Miss Rosemary Neuhaus,
present social assistant, and another
assistant to be named later. Mrs.
Ray, who has lived in Mosher for
six years, was presented with a ster-
ling silver bonbon dish by the women
of the house.
At the same dinner, announcement
was made of the election of Norma
Vint, '40, to the house presidency.
Miss Vint succeeds Mary LeGros, '40,
to that position.

Examination Blues
May Be Remedied
With Bridge Game
"How about a half hour of bridge?"
is the usual cry before and after din-
ner during the exam period. Students
everywhere are flocking to the card
tables between long periods of book
Relaxing indeed seems this form of
diversion after three or four hours of
outlining history courses or remem-
bering chemistry formulae. Mere
figuring out slam-bid hands seems
like child's play in relation to the
main problems on hand these next
two weeks.
General opinion has it, though, that
tempers are shorter and mistakes
more frequent around the card table
when the players are thinking of to-
morrow's final. As a repreive from
the sentence of more study, however,
the "short game of bridge" continues.
