Lions To Give
Benefit Dance
To Help Blind
$1,000 Raised Last Year
Used To Buy Glasses,
g Obtain Seeing Eye Dog
The Ann Arbor Lions Club will give
its annual ball for the benefit of the
blind, children of Washtenaw County
from 9 p.m. to midnight Satur-
day, Oct. 7 in the Intramural Build-
ing, it was announced by Robert
Bush, chairman.
Earl "Father" Hines and his 14-
piece orchestra will play fcr the.
dance. "Father" Hines played op-
posite George Olson and his band for
J-Hop three years ago and is known
to a large public.
'.The Lions Club raised over $1,000
through this dance last fall' and
hopes to double the amount this year.
The club fitted glasses to 97 needy
children of school age in Ann Arbor
and vicinity out of the fund during
the past year.
It also did other welfare work for
the blind of the community and
m'ade a $100 down payment on a
Seeing Eye dog from the Morristown,
N.J. school for a needy Ann Arbor
youth. There is an even greater de-
mand for funds for the same purpose
this year, Mr. Bush stated.
The club expects to test the eyes
of numerous welfare cases during the
wvinter_ and hopes to be able to fit
all of these children with glasses as
soon as possible. This work was
started several years ago and has
grown to such proportions that -there
is a far greater demand for suffi-
cient funds to carry it out than in
past years. The Ann Arbor Lions
Club has urged that the residents
and, students of the city cooperate
in this work.
Tickets for the affair are priced at
$1 per couple and. are on sale at all
times at the Staffle and Bush Cloth-
ing Store, Miller's Drug Store, the
Parrott Restaurant and all of the
campus book stores.
Simple Wools
Solve Problem
Foar oflegiates
To the foreground of the college
wardrobe comes the in-between dress.
"What shall I wear tonight?" "Oh,
just :put on a 'little wool'." Since no
body has ever limited the definition
of a "little wool," it has come to be
one main factor in every gixl's 'ward-
robe When' there is tnIe after class
only to slip out of saddle shoes before
the luncheon guest arrives, when
clothes for an Assembly or rush tea
present a problem, when you HAVE
to wear the old reversible and don't
care to put a silk dress under it'
"wear a little wool."
A vriety of simple styles this year
make the selection of this essential
an easy matter. Shirtwaist favorites
snapped up with pleated skirts and
suspender belts offer one variation
of the usual theme. Plaids to make
gay the most staid garb will add zest
as well as practical dividends to the
wool wardrobe that is depleted.
A favorite version of the eternal
classic is put out by one popular de-
signer. The dress is of the softest
cashmere wool, shirtwaist style with
tiny, glittering studs. Over this is
worn a cardigan of the same material
with push-up sleeves. Try it in
delphinium blue with a red jacket.
Another all-purpose dress by this
same style leader, is a black and
white plaid with a huge skirt and

a wide red belt. Both the plaid and
the skirt are large, so this sty'le
looks best on tall girls.
Usually complemented with a pair
of classic spectator pumps, these
simple dresses may be worn at so
many different occasions that "little
wool" has become an accepted phrase
among campus women.

Curiously hushed amid the din of
orientation was publicity for "Per-
spectives," campus literary magazine
which made its first appearance in'
October of last year.
Successor of "The Inlander" and
"Contemporary," "Perspectives" was
called into being last year by four
members of the English department
who recognized the need of such a
magazine after the lapse of a year
following the failure of "Contem-
In its proper medium as a supple-
ment to The Daily, "Perspectives" has
proved eminently successful. Freed:
from the necessity of making the
magazine financially independent in
its former expensive form, the edi-
torial staff has collected the best of
campus literary efforts and made
them accessible to every Daily sub-
Stimulus To Literatri
Two ends are thus achieved. The
magazine acts as a stimulus to cam-
pus literatri and at the same time
makes the best Michigan can offer in
creative writing accessible to a large
portion of the college population.
Number one example of the latter
is this year's opening issue which
will include only Hopwood material.
Among the features to be used are a
chapter from Iola Goodspeed, Grad,
"Loon Totem," prize-winning novel,
and the poems of John Malcolm Brin- t
nan, '41, and John Ciardi, Grad.
Tryouts Today
"Perspectives" opens its editorial
staffs to tryouts today, and at the
same time issues a plea to every hair-
brained student with a suppressed de-
sire to write-don't hesitate! Drop
your manuscript in the boxes which
will be placed for. that purpose in
English offices of the literary and
engineering schools..
And incidentally, women, this is
your opportunity to star. The editors
are anxious to have feminine con-
Costume Jewelry
To Replace Pearls
For Campus Wear
As a'relief from the classic strand
of pearls, fashion this year is show-
ing a new assortment of costume and
novelty necklaces. With so many,
simple but smart sweaters being worn
on campus, manufacturers have had
to design appropriate costume jewelry.
One of the cleverest things seen in
local windows is a matching necklace
and bracelet consisting of alternating
pencil ends and erasers. Another
of white and yellow shell flowers
strung on a gold chain can be worn
against a dark blue shetland pull-

Miss Bradfield's first letter, written
to a friend the night before the
Athenia was struck, describes her
own emotions and the general ten-
sion aboard ship, as the passengers
prepared for possible emergencies.
One excerpt reads as follows:
Carrying 1300 Persons
"This ship is carrying 1,300 per-
sons and it is built only for 600.
Lifeboat No. 17 looks uncomfortable

Miss Bradfield's second letter, dat-
ed Sept. 10 and written to her mother,
Mrs. Walter C. Schaefer of 556 Madi-
son' Ave., Grand Rapids, told of the
actual disaster, and also related con-
ditions of the rescue and subsequent
events. Beginning with the torpedo-
ing of the ship, the account reads:
"Sunday night after dinner, I
stopped at the purser's office to read
Chamberlain's speech. Not having
my glasses, I started for my cabin
to get them.
"I was descending the stairs to, D
deck when I heard the explosion.
Feeling the boat's great port list, I
hurried down to my cabin to get my
life belt. It was absolutely black,
