Flying down to Texas - first as-
signment for Margaret Sanford, '42,
newly selected president of the
League, and last official duty of Lee
Hardy, '42, retiring president who
acted as co-representative with Miss
Sanford at the biennial conference of
the Intercollegiate Association of
Women Students meeting last week
in Lubboch, Texas.'
"New Frontiers for College Women"
was the theme of the three-day con-
ference at Texas Technological Col-
lege at which over 150 college repre-
sentatives met to discuss commonn
problems and interchange ideas. Said
Miss Sanford in describing the length
of the trip and the beauty of thea
Texas country, "We felt as if we werey
on the frontier of something."

Social activities of the trip, Miss
Sanford said, included a chuck wagon

Laten out of one big bowl. Miss San-
lord described the affair as "lots of
un but the food very peculiar." In
addition the delegates were guests at
a dance held at the college as well
as at a real Mexican dinner.
The women of the dormitory where
Miss Sanford and Miss Hardy stayed

they get to class by a quarter of

ford declared, was a bit rough on the
way down, while on the return trip
the plane had to circle the field in
Chicago for an hour before landing
through the fog was possible. Only six
hours were required by plane from
Chicago to Amarilla, Texas, where
the women boarded a bus to Lubboch.

"I love America. From the time
that I was young I have dreamed that
someday I would be able to come to
this paradise." This sincere statement
came from Esther Torczyner, Grad.,
refugee from Vienna.
Miss Torezyner has been here on
a Hillel scholarship and has already
formed many definite opinions about
the American women. "They aren't
too different except that they wear
more make-up than we do in Vienna.
We never see to it that our hair bows
match our socks. Whatever we hap-
pen to find most easily we put on."
Hitler Dislikes Make-up
Hitler's regime does call for less
make-up than formerly. "You see,
Hitler wants more naturalized wo-
menhood. Miss Torczyner also men-
tioned that in the high schools the
women are never permitted to wear
make-up, and it- wasn't unusual for
a woman teacher to send a student
out of the roomto wash her face.
Women smoke in Vienna just as
they do here. While smoking is per-
mitted in subways, any woman who
would ask a man for "fire" would
be frowned upon, and the case would
be written up in the daily paper."
If a man asks you to stop smoking
you must oblige." Otherwise the soc-
ial life is just about the same. "I
had a formal made for me just before
I came and the women say that it
is still in good taste."
School Unnecessary
"We don't have to attend classes
all of the time either." Still another
difference pointed out was that stu-
dents attending the University could!
not be employed or earn any of the
money necessary for an education.
It is up to your parents to support
you and if they can't then you can't
attend school. Private teaching was
not included in the category of work,
Miss Torczyner intend to teach
German in a private school until
she is granted citizenship. At this
time she plans to teach in a public'
high school. "My fathei' and mother

Ruth Brown, Grad., daughter of
Senator and Mrs. Prentiss M. Brown,

Hamtramck, will be married tomor-
row in St. Ignace. Thomas Dudley
Harmon, '41, will be the best man.
Miss Brown was graduated from
Albion College in 1939, and took

That women can hold as much
liquor as men has been scientifically
ascertained by three Yale University
scientists, the Yale Daily News re-
veals in an article shattering the
popular myth of male supremacy in
the consumption of alcoholic bever-
"Unless you weigh a lot more than
your girl-friend, technically it won't
take her any shorter time to become
inebriated than you, even though
she's younger and less experienced,"
the News points out.
Straight Shots Have Less 'Kick'
The threeYale scientists, Dr. How--
ard Haggard, Dr. Leon Greenberg,
and Dr. Giorgio Lolli, of the Medical
School faculty, wrote research articles
on "The Absorption of Alcohol" which
were published in the Quarterly Jour-
nal of Studies on Alcohol issued from
Yale headquarters March 21.
"Contrary to popular opinion,",
said the News, "the scientists disclosed
that the 'straight shot' of liquor tak-
en on an empty stomach doesn't carry
as much 'kick' as the same amount
of liquor in cocktail or highball form."
Dilution Hastens Absorption
This amazing statement was furth-
er elucidated by the explanation that
the diluting Agent in the drink has-
tens the passage of the beverage into
the intestines where the liquor is ab-
sorbed into the blood stream-the
amount absorbed determining the po-
tency of the "kick."
Ann Arborites will no doubt be in-
terested in the fact that beer has a
less powerful effect than both cock-
tails and whiskey. There is a much
weaker concentration of alcohol in
the blood due to beer as "the food
action of beer taken on an empty

years of age. The Yale paper related
that none of them received alcohol
more than three alternate days a
week; and each came to the labora-
tory without having had breakfast.
The doctors gave the groups a cer-
tain amount of "firewater" and then
the concentration in the bloodstream
was determined at intervals. "The
subjects varied in weight from 100
to 250 pounds and varied still more in
their emotional reactions," the News

Of Chic Frivolity
"In your Easter bonnet with all the

form of veils and flowers this Sunday
as she strolls in the Easter parade
down Fifth Avenue in New York,
Michigan Blvd. in Chicago, Woodward
Avenue in Detroit, or good old Main
Street in Ann Arbor.
Topping her outfit will be one of
those silly but scrumptious things1
that designers call hats. This Easter,
Sunday it will be composed mainly ofI
flowers, will be small with wisps ofi
veiling encircling it and will probably{
sit far forward on the head. If cam-
pus fashion has saturated her sense
of style, however, our coed will join1
the throng, bedecked in a big broad
brimmed straw of navy, the most
tailored thing she could find.-

will shine forth. They will have longt
jackets with big pockets while theI
plain pastel wool twill suits will be,
fashioned on the dressmaker line. x
If a suit doesn't appeal to you,

along the avenue in a navy silk print
with a vividly red short-sleeved jack-

officers for the coming year as well11
as apponted committee chairmen to
take charge of the annual horse show,

was reelected treasurer. Other offi-
cers are: Charlotte Thompson, '43,
vice-president and Betty Johnson,
'42, secretary.I
Miss Hayden said the military drill
consisting of 16 riders will highlight
the show. While exact drill forma-
tions have not been completely
worked out, the horsewomen have
been practicing throughout the win-
ter in order to acquire the precision
and timing which, Miss Hayden add-
ed, is necessary for a successful drill.
University women's open events,.
university men's open, and exhibition
jumping will all be features of Crop
and Saddle's annual spring horse
show. Plans for ether events have
not been completed as yet.
Chairmen named to head commit-

tired of it all and wants to relax

Roosevelt Started Fad
Roosevelt and the New Deal really
started something by having all those
lengthy initialed committees. We've
found two or three of them on cam-
pus, but we can say here and now
that they've nothing whatever to do
with the government. Ye Ed. has
already mentioned the H'.T.U.O.GP.
Club in his Scratch Pad, you know,
the club that specializes in making
deprecatory remarks about a certain
young gentleman who hands out free
gum, but you probably haven't heard
of the H.T.K.O.P. Club so we'll tell
you about it. It could be described
as the male equivalent of the Evad-
ers Club, but actually the initials
stand for the words, How To Keep
On Pro. Need we say more?
College women seem to like to
form clubs of one sort .or another,
(mostly another), but th most pecul-
iar one we've heard o yet is the
R.C.A., which ,translated, means the
Repulsive Club of America! The
worthy members tell us that the
word repulsive does not refer to
physical appearances, so gather what
you may from that!
One-Member Club Is Found
Somewhere or another you're -al-,
ways sure to find a club that has
but one member. The one-member-
club for this week is entitled the
I.C.A. which the president, founder,
and pole supporter, informs us means
the Infallible Club of America In
other words, she can't be wrong and
she won't let anyone else belong any-
way so no one ever knows if she is,
Enough of initials! Here's a club
that might interest any of you peo-
ple who are tired of drinking cokes.
It's called the Thank-God-It's-Fri-
day-Club, (also Saturday), and the
members repair to a certain well-
known eating (?) establishment
downtown every Friday afternoon to
praise Allah for another weekend.
From all reports it's quite a suc-
cessful undertaking.
Club Persecutes Joke-Tellers
If anyone hates people who tell
jokes that just aren't funny, here's
the club to join. The members resolve
to persecute all individuals who tell
such jokes and consequently they call
their organization the Lead Balloon
Club, you know, something that
doesn't go over? Yes, those were
their very words, so don't blame us.
Last but not least, we'd like to warn
all you people who go steady to be-
ware. There's an underhanded group
on campus who call themselves the
Club for Preventing Steadies and al-
though we don't know what they do
to prevent them, it might pay to be
on the look-out.
Oh yes, we almost forgot to men-
tion a certain group of cynical young
women who have formed an organ-
ization which they call the "If-We-
Can't-Turn-Their Heads-We'll - Turn

to think it's long but apt!
