Chessmen, Chinamen, Rockettes,
Greek Athletes To Dance In JQP

It's not only a question of whip-
ping lines into shape for "Jumping
Jupiter," but also one of whipping
shapes into line, according to Mil-
dred Radford, dance chairman of the
1941 JGP.
There'll be fireworks aplenty in the
show with a pin wheel as well as the
smooth and synchronized (we hope!)
hi-kicks to be executed by those
glamorous bits of femininity, the
Rockettes, Ann Arbor's own edition
of the Radio City dancers.
The gymnastic Greek chorus, la-
belled the Athletes, consists of 22
calisthenically-minded juniors who
really have fun and provide much en-
tertainment with their dancing.
They'll be authentically Grecian,
complete # to the' laurel-wreaths on[
their heads. And for more of the for-I
eign element there is the Chinese
chorus, clothed in brief mandarin
coats and shorts with flowers placed
oriental-like over each ear, that does
a noisy, clever tap dance, designed
to torment poor Mr. Fu who has a
Playful Pixies, called the Satyr
chorus, have the job of amusing Mar-,
iadne, the heroine of the play, and to
this end the tiny dancers play leap-

Spring Brings
Model Figures
Into High Style
Preparing for Spring goes deeper
than buying a new suit, a different
shade of lipstick, or a military hat;
it gets right down to your hair, your
face, your skin, and your figure.
First, let's consider your figure
since it is most difficult to change.
Can it stand the trim lines of that
new suit or the straight, severe' eve-
ning dress? In case of a negative
response, help is close at hand, so
perk up and trot over to Barbour
Gym. Body Mechanics classes meet
there almost every day at several dif-
ferent hours. Attendance is required
only once weekly, but you can come
as often as you like. This treatment
is sure-fire for taking inches off any
Also for your figure-but you
know what is coming next. Those de-
lectable in-between-meal snacks can
keep you roly poly regardless of exer-
cises, so self-denial is the order of
your new Spring self. It surely isn't
any fun in the process, but think of
the lovely aftermath-you, slim and
smart-looking, and best of all un-
afraid of the bathing suit season that
looms around the corner.
Skin, to which winter has been un-
kind, can be remedied quickly and
painlessly. All it takes is a soft face
brush (instead of a washcloth), plen-
ty of soap suds; and nightly applica-
tions of lubricating creams. Stringy
hair needs at least ten minutes of
hearty brushing each night, taking
care to stroke away from the scalp.
While in the grooming stage you can
have fun designing yourself a new
hair-do. Beauty parlors are a bit too
much expense at the end of the
month, and besides it's nice torthink
you can do as well as the experts.
However, unless you have the fea-
tures of a Grecian Goddess, none of;
these measures will be of any avail
if you don't have good health. It is
only by being healthy that you can
have that sparkle in your eyes, that
glow in your cheeks, and the pep to
keep you smiling even through the
And, only sleep, outdoor exercise,
and good food can give you that
radiance about which poets wax elo-
quent, and college men rave. So be
clever! Seize calories, sunlight, sleep,
exercise, brushes and creams, and
turn into slenderness, soft skin-fun,
parties and laughter.

portunity to become "white collar"

Today is March twenty-second, the
second day of spring, the second day

markable coincidence with a list of

Lawyer-Engineer Feud Nears
Climax With Slide-Rule Theft

Come to its for
a combat with

treatment after
the changeable

Spring winds.

"Down with the engineers" was the
cry of the barristers at the victory
dinner last night in the Law School
dining hall to celebrate the success-
ful capture of the famed Engine slide
rule from their arch rivals-these
shirt-sleeved, tieless engineers.
The ingenious lawyers set up, ac-
cording to the blueprint of Black-
stone, the famed eight-foot slide rule
on a pedestal to command the super-
vision of the opening of the first
ticket sales for their Crease Ball
which will be given April 4, the same
evening that their traditional en-
emies will attempt to put on their
social airs for Slide Rule Ball.
Lawyers Limit Sale
In a close decision before the cele-
bration and after a serious case anal-
ysis, the committee judges decided
to limit their ticket sales to 300 bids
to be distributed to those barristers
presenting the jury fee of three dol-
Those tickets which withstood the
clamoring of the jubilant "Legal,
Eagles" at the banquet yesterday may
be negotiated for in the Law Quad)
from committee members.
Bickering Continues
Incensed with white anger at the
insinuating comment that the engi-
neers made that their "ticket sales
are being limited to engine students,"
Fred Niketh, '41L, indignantly de-
manded of this reporter, "Who be-
sides an insignificant engineer would
want to trip into their so-called
"Now, take the Law affair," added
the barrister, "there's an affair that
will be stupendous-why, those un-
shaven excuses for men wouldn't be
at home at our smooth Crease Ball
even with a tripod to lean upon."
Under the Engineering Arch, re-
ports reveal that there is trouble.
The engineers demand the return of
their coveted symbol, the slide rule.
Talk of a negotiations board to settle
the dispute is current and each side
is said to be avoiding appeasement.
Engineers Want Slide Rule
Certain "libelous innuendos" of the
enginemen were pointed out as the
cause for the action of the lawyers
in the grand larceny seizure of the
slide rule, an official representative
of the Law School insisted:
At press time, no decision had

been reached. There may be need
of a mediator if the deadlock is not
broken soon-for the engineers need
their respected slide rule, which for
many generations has been the an-!
nual exhibit at their Ball.
