The ROTC faculty officers and
their wives were guests of Adams
and Winchell houses in the West
Quad for dinner Wednesday. As
you remember, the East Quad also
played hosts to the army men
about four weeks ago.
Stockwell Hall will hold just about
its largest social function of the year
Tuesday night. The occasion is the
first anniversary of the formal open-
ing of the living room in this newest
dorm. The dinner, which will be
formal, will be followed by a musi-
cal program directed by Dorothy
Bach, Grad. The guest list will in-
clude President and Mrs. Ruthven,
Deans Alice Lloyd, Jeanette Perry
and Byrl Bacher, members .of the
Board of Directors of Dormitories,
Dean Joseph Bursley, the house di-
rectors of all the women's dorms,
Miss Ethel McCormack, Mrs. Sey-
mour B. Conger, Mr. and Mrs. Fran-
cie Shiel and Miss Kathleen Hamm.
The West Quad has two special
groups for those students who wish
to learn to converse in foreign
languages. The German table
meets one night each week, under
the direction of Mr. Frank Ryder,
who holds a diploma from Heidel-
berg University. This group will
soon be expanded and will prob-
ably include different tables for
beginners and advanced linguists.
La table francais-French Table to
you engineers- meets six times a
week, and is supervised by Monsieur
Bertram Smith, a graduate of the
University of Louvain, Belgium. This
table is reported to be doing exceed-
ingly well, with about fifty students
participating. Every two weeks the
table holds an exchange dinner with
groups from the women's residence
halls.
So far, tbey've exchanged with
French Tables from Stockwell,
Betsy Barbour, Helen Newberry,
Mosher and Jordan. Nice work,
if you parlez francais. (For trans-
lation see Mr. Smith).
Faculty members have also been
frequent guests to repast-seminars.
Professors Jobin, Prator, Gravit,
Hootkins. Mr. Merhab and Mr.
O'Neill. all of the romance lan-
guages department, have conversed
in French with the groups between
mouthfuls of West Quad pommes de
terre.
Those Louis A. Strauss Memorial
Record Concerts are still being held
nightly in the main lounge of the
West Quad at 6:45 p.m. every day.

As "Jumping Jupiter," the current
JGP, goes into its last rehearsals in
preparation for its opening Wednes-
day, junior -women carry on a tradi-
tion dating back to the earliest or-
ganization of women on campus.
The original play presented open-
ing night to the senior women had
its beginnings with the organization
of women by classes under Dean of
Women Myra Jordan in 1903.

In Summary
Henry Timmer, Grand Rapids, was
treated at St. Joseph's Mercy Hos-
pital for injuries after his car had
side-swiped a truck driven by Robert
Riley, Ypsilanti, just south of Stein
Road.
In Circuit court, Judge George
Sample approved a dismissal of a
$10,000 damage suit brought by Mrs.
Maggie Latham. The suit asked for
compensation for injuries incurred
in an accident last November 6.
Judge George Sample sentenced
Grant Mohrlock, Chelsea, 90 days in
jail and fined him $50 yesterday when
he pleaded guilty yesterday for vio-
lating probation. Only last week
Judge Sample placed Mohrlock on
two year's probation. on a disorderly
charge. Mohrlock was re-arrested af-
ter his release.

JGP play was the Dean of Women,
Mrs. Jordan. Entitled, "Don Quixote,"
the play was a take-off on romantic
customs.
The play was given to an audience
composed entirely of women the eve-
ning of Swing-Out, which occurred
during the last of April.
The seniors appeared at the play
following Swing-Out in their caps
and gowns, which they continued to
wear each Tuesday and Thursday
until graduation.
In Sarah Caswell Angell Hall, on
the second floor of Barbour Gym-
nasium, junior women gathered to
give impromptu skits.
Scenery and costumes were not
elaborate, since the main object was
to entertain the senior women and
to provide an extra-curricular activ-
ity besides athletics in which juniors
could participate.
Given in the spirit of fun it was
not unusual to see the dean of wo-
men or a prominent alumna appear
unexpectedly in the final perform-
ance. This was possible because from
the very beginning the plays were
written to include as many junior
women in the cast as possible.
During the 1920's men were allowed
to see the all-girl productions. Later
the public was allowed to see the
performances.
With the construction of the Mich-
igan League and the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre in 1928 the project was
J enlarged.
Scenery became more elaborate and
costumes and properties in keeping
with the period portrayed. The sale
of tickets to the theatre seating more
than 700 allowed the junior women to
