Rushing Plans
To Be Subject
Of Discussion
Dean Alice Lloyd To Address
Gathering Of Sorority Women;
Alumnae Members Are Invited
A mass meeting of all sorority wo-
men will be held at 4:15 p.m. today
in the League to discuss plans for
next year's rushing.
Dean Alice Lloyd will address the
gathering of Panhellenic women, An-
abel Van Winkle, '41, president of the
Council, announced. Plans for holding
rushing before school begins in the
fall may be discussed.
Each sorority is invited to ask two
alumnae members to attend the meet-
ing and all sorority women are urged
to attend and offer any ideas they
may have.
For the past two years the rushing
period has lasted for ten days, open-
ing with two teas on the first Sat-
urday and Sunday. Following the teas
are five days of informal dessert
parties, either a luncheon or a buf-
fet supper on Saturday and a break-
fast or buffet supper on Sunday.
Monday has always been* a day of
rest for both rushees and the sorority
women, follewed on Tuesday and
Wednesday with formal dinners.
Every rushee must register with
Panhellenic Association before she
may be rushed and pay a fee of $1.50,
which entitles her to a pamphlet with
information of all sororities on cam-
pus. There may be no contact be-
tween sorority women and indepen-
dent women during the rushing per-
In the past there has been set a
maximum of $25.00 which may be
spent for flowers and decoration for
the entire intensive rushing season.
There are numerous other rules cover-
ing every possible phase of rushing
and fines imposed for breaking these
Any sorority woman is urged to at-
tend the meeting and present any
ideas on any phase of rushing, form-
al or informal, that she may have.

announced yesterday.
Other members of the independent
group elected to responsible posi-
tions for the coming year are Rose-
mary Malejan, '44, as vice-president
and membership chairman, and Rob-

These officers' duties will begin im-

work in cooperation with next year's
Assembly officers, in their capacities
on the executive committee of the In-
dependents' group. The president and
secretary-treasurer will also act as
representatives on the Assembly
Board. The Ann Arbor Independents
make up' one of the four parts of the
Assembly organization. Other groups

League houses and the dormitories.
Under the group's constitution, the
chairmen of the various committees
Will be appointed later by the incom-

What with the Capitalist Ball, the Blackfoot Ball, and the Theta Chi
and Beta formals, to say nothing of the usual Union dance, the good old
quote Social Whirl unquote has been quite, well-quite whirly, to say the
least. If you didn't get to at least one of 'em, gals, you just ain't functioning.
So plaster on a little more of that glamorous pancake makeup, and see if
you can't do better next week. Anyway, to get you jealous, we'll proceed
with the weekly doin's.
'Rich Kids' Step Out...
We just can't understand where all the capitalists came from for that
ball Friday night. Haven't noticed anyone around
campus with green notes dripping out of his pockets,
but we probably just haven't been observant, because
+ 1 they certainly turned out. Mary Neafie was there
with Buck Dawson and Molly Hoffman was with
Bill Schoedinger. Helen Clark and Bob Hamilton,
Harriet Vicary and Ivan Cuthbert, Phoebe Power and
Bob Pumquist, and Jane Coupe and Bob Harrington
also graced (whatever that is!) the ballroom.
All the gals who were rehearsing for JGP Friday,
night gave their grateful thanks to the A.T.O. boys
for their thoughtfulness in holding their clambake
at the League. The tired Bernhardts merely swept for drooped, depending
on how long they had rehearsed) out of one room and into another-and
there they were! Marie Holmes went with Bill Todd and some of the other
couples keeping time (we hope)'were Jane Lindberg and Bob Muenzer, Pat
Lowe and Bill Kinsell, and Mary Herbert and Dick Gauthier.
The Trek To Theta Chi And Beta ...
The balance of social Annarborites, and believe us, there were plenty,
were at either the Theta Chi or the Beta house for their
initiation formals. Struggling through the mob (accord-
ing to the respective fraternity members-but we think ./
they're just trying to make their parties sound terrific)
were Kit Upson and Chock Low, Caroline Holt and Harry.
Kelsey, Sally Mustard and Bob Merriman, and Ruth You- -
mans and Dave Donaldson at Theta Chi, while Sue Ort-
mayer and Paul Shick, Janet Cornell and Ford Whipple,
Dorothy Larsen and Jim Holland, and Marge McVay and
Ed Adams did the same thing at the Beta house.
The Helen Newberry gals polished off the weekend
Saturday night with a radio dance. (We are going to say "on a polished
floor," but one can't get too corny, we suppose.) Helen Culley and Stan
Duffendach, Millie Curtis and Hank Beale, and Marian Edgar and Stu,
Bower did the polishing.

Tickets For Engineers' Dance
Are Available To Public Today
General sale of tickets for the an-
nual engineers' Slide Rule Ball,
which will be held from 9 p.m. to 1
a.m. Friday, April 4, will begin at
9 a.m. today at the Union desk, Ro-
bert Imboden, '42E, ticket chairman
announced yesterday.
The tickets, which will be sold for
$3.75, were only available to students
in the College of Engineering until
"His High De Highness of Ho De

furnish the music with ,his famous

that made him famous. Calloway,
however, has promised not to forget
a few well-known "hi-de-ho" num-
bers, which have been so popular dur-
ing the past few years.
Included among these numbers are
such tunes as "Minnie the Moocher,"
"Kicking the Gong Around," "Chloe,"
"Ain't Misbehavin'," "St. James In-
firmary," "The Scat Song," "The
Reefer Man" and "Zaz Zuh Zaz."

Rags Become Classic Costumes
For 'Jumping Jupiter'_Opening


Silks, satins, lace---even cheese-
cloth have all been whipped together
with artistic flourishes and patted
in place with a prayer to make the
striking display of costumes which
will be seen in "Jumping Jupiter,"
when it opens tomorrow night for
the senior women.
From motley chunks of limpish
material, these costumes have taken
shape, and now their pen and ink
watercolor counterparts can be seen
on display in the League Library, on
the third floor of the League.
Artist Is Virginia Drury
The drawings were made by Vir-
ginia Drury, '42, who is chairman of
JGP programs. Miss Drury is study-
ing decorative design. Her sketches
of the costumes show a remarkable
similarity between the dress of the
ancient Greece and that of today. Of
course it couldn't be time is working
backward in this case.
For example, Roxana's brown satin
jerkin looks Grecian enough, but it
can be found in every woman's ward-
robe, at least that of college stu-
dents. Dorothy Merki will play Rox-
ana. Charissa is shown in pale green
net over green taffeta, with gold rib-
bon binding on the neckline and
skirt. The long full sleeves are of

net. Nancy Drew is taking the part of
Xantippi, played by Veitch Purdom,
will be seen in rose violet taffeta,'
bound in blue taffeta, as shown in
the sketch. Jules, Charissa's abject
suitor, wears a bright green, red and
yellow silk tie with his tail coat
and black sateen pleated skirt.
His socks are yellow, and huge orange
men's shoes drag along on his feet.
To say nothing of his brilliant gar-
Mariadne Wears Voile
Mariadne, the sweet heroine, played
by Helen Rhodes, is sketched wearing
pink voile over pink taffeta, with
gold ribbon binding on the skirt and
drapery. Bonny Laurie goes the whole
Scotch hog in green,ered and yellow
plaid wool kilt, caps and shoulder
drape, with a yellow percale blouse.
Castor wears a black sateen jack-
et over a black, grey and white striped
shirt, with an Eton collar and black
tie. Papa is resplendent in a blue-
green satin tunic. Mr. Fu has a black
embroidered kimona, over blue satin
Dion, the hero, wears metal cloth
armour, a helmet, a ked percale tunic,
with brass plates on the armour.
Socrates is conservative in .a grey
taffeta tunic. Hippolia also wears ar-
mour, as does Ajax, her general.
The negro servants dress in true
southern style. The ministers of Hip-
polia forget about the gloomy job
of managing a state long enough to
wear glamour girl clothes.
As shown in the sketches the cos-
tumes are sophistigated suave
achievements of Grecian art. Not so
in the dress rehearsals. Pins are a
great institution here; snaps are still
to be fitted for and sewed on, slips
show, wrinkles dominate the scene.
Before the play opens a miracle
will be worked on the piles of bril-
liantly colored costumes that over-
flow the costume room. Principal
characters are still stewing about
what to wear for shoes, what to do
with their curls; minor characters
are just positive that their little
costumes won't let anyone tell wheth-
er they're third from the left, or in
the middle.
But all these typical difficulties of
the dress rehearsal stage will be
smoothed out, and disappeared with-
out a trace when the curtain goes up
for the seniors Wednesday night.

Groups Invited
To Coke Bar
Special - Guests To Be Present
At Union Midweek Dance Today
Seven groups are especially invited
to attend the Union coke bar from
4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. today in the
small ballroom of the Union.
These are Alpha Gamma Delta,
Chi Omega, Kappa Delta, Sigma
Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Nu
and Phi Kappa Sigma Hostess at
this week's coke bar will be Lou Car-
penter, '42. There will be a selected
list of 30 prominent women on cam-
pus also invited to this coke bar.
Free cokes will be served as usual,
and also coffee, tea, and cookies, on
the terrace. Tables will be set up for
bridge, and dancing will be to the lat-
est music.
Last week's coke bar had a good
campus representation, according to
Dick Strain, '42, social co-chairman
of the Union. This mid-week dancing
interlude offers a chance to relax for
the students, who will soon be work-
ing on their mid-semesters
Announce Marriages
Of Horelick-Isaacs
And Kimmel-Ellis
Mr. and Mrs. Louis'Kimmel of
Royal Oak, Michigan, announce the
marriage of their daughter, Ethel
R. Kimmel, '42, to Sheldon Ellis,
'40L, of Hftllsdale, Michigan. The
ceremony took place March 2 in De-
troit. Mr. Ellis is an affiliate of Kap-
pa Nu fraternity and Miss Kimmel
was treasurer of Betsy Barbour house
They are now living in Royal Oak.
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Horelick of
Pittsburg, Pa., announce the marriage
of their daughter Martha Horelick,
'39, to Irving R. Isaacs, '39, of De-
troit. The ceremony was held Febru-
ary 23 at the Hotel Schenley in Pitts-
burg. Mr. Isaacs is affiliated with
Kappa Nu fraternity. The couple is
living in Detroit.

Initiates, Pledges And Officers
Are Nlamed By Campus Groups

C7 f O

Helen Rhodes, the leading lady, gracefully extending her
hand in a dramatic attitude, and then suddenly grasping
a section of her anatomy with a yowl of agony. (You know
how vicious pins in an unfinished costume can be!) Susie
Adams, one of the show's "athletes," trying to smooth out
the padding in her stockings. Susie's fighting to preserve
her glamour, cotton muscles, and all! Margot Thom and
Bonnie Lodeh critically examining the Grecian drape of
their costumes. They both insist that the drape forms a
sort of kangaroo pouch at the front. Well, gee whiz, kids,
the Greeks hadda' have something to carry their make-
up in! 4
Any of you who have been in any kind of a produc-
tion, amateur or otherwise, know that the glamour (be it
more or less) of a show is practically nil during rehearsals.
In place of the sparkle of the finished product, though,

there is the fun of impromptu remarks by the cast,-the general horror when
an unfinished hem meets an unfinished board and the board comes out on
top,-and the excitement of waiting in the wings for your cue. All of that
goes with JGP. Let us assure you, however, that anything you have heard
;bout the thrill of greasepaint, you can simply discount. In place of that
word "thrilling," let us rather substitute "nauseating." We know!

If your theme song is "Time on my
hands, clothes on my mind," there'll
be plenty to keep you busy this
spring and one of the things most
likely to provide food for thought and
what might be termed, basis for ac-
tion, is the flock of new prints that
have been turned out by those willing-
to-please designers.
Your fancy might turn to prints
that feature animals, flowers, dots,
or maybe something even more strik-
ing and unusual, but whatever it is,
you're almost sure to find it sooner
or later. Your ambition is to draw
all eyes toward you because you have
that indefinable something, that well-
groomed, snappy look, and you might
ust as well admit it. There's one
dress that will gratify that ambition
pronto and as might have been ex-
pected, it's a print.
Actually, it's an ensemble, with a
tiny animal-strewn print on a dress
which has an all-around pleated
skirt and a shirt waist top complete
with convertible collar. Over this, if
you want anything over it, there's
a solid-color, fitted wool jacket. The
buttons are the same as the figure
in the print and the contrasting col-

ors intensify the casual and youth-
ful smartness.
There are so many new motifs
in prints this season that it's quite
confusing, but it's defintiely intrigu-
ing. The navy and military flair, the
Western flavor, the mechanical ele-
ment, such as the dress with tiny
headlights all over it, or the startling
splashy prints on white backgrounds
are seen. There's one which has tiny
musical instruments printed in white
on a choose-your-own-color back-
ground in a redingote style.
Gowns Are Ready
Senior women who have not
gotten their caps and gowns may
obtain them today at the League.
Women who plan to wear gowns
only to Senior Supper may rent
them tomorrow in the League.
Players Will Meet
All individuals interested in play-
ing, basketball in the Club Basket-
ball Series are urged to report at
4:15 p.m. today at Barbour Gym.
