Military Ball. (Shall we give 'em the old line about 'There's something
about a soldier'-just to start this column off? No, better not. They (mean-
ing my two readers-won't swallow that corn). You can see how it is. You
just have to fight off the trite phrases that come to mind when you're trying
to start a column-and I don't want to hear any cracks about'-you should
fight a little harder'. However, to get back to the point, there was, accord-
ing to all reports; a Military Ball on Friday last. Some of the couples there
were Jane McLean and Neal Sperhake. Betty Backus and John Poe, Harriet
Vicary and Ivan Cuthbert, Louise Higbee and bon Ryker, and Chris Segrist

Episode A t Mosher ...
Neatest Trick Of The Week: Science, instead of sex, reared its ugly head
over at Mosher Hall last Saturday night. Couples at the door weire inter-
rupted in their usual scenes of tender parting by another couple which strode
purposefully into the center of the group-(a primary
group, incidentally) --These strange new additions to
*" the Mosher scene quietly whipped a pair of surgeons
:masks out of their pockets, fastened them over their
faces, and then went into the most sanitary clinch the
dorm-or the campus, for that matter-had seen in
many a day. Perhaps it's a new fad. If it is, perhaps
it will sweep the campus-but we doubt it!

WAA's traditional Lantern Night,
which the campus of 1940 knows as a
Sing competition among women's
groups of the University, did not begin
as a sing at all but as a pageant.
Way back in the spring of 1915,
dancing activities at WAA were given
impetus through the presentation of
a pageant known as Lantern Night,
and thus the tradition has continued
in one form or another as the culmin-
ating festivity of women's athletic
program of the year had its be-
Pageant Presented
In 1922, Lantern Night was aug-
mented by, the presentation of an
elaborate pageant staged on Palmer
Field. Then in 1925, the occasion
was enlarged by including a Field Day
in the afternoon, box lunches on the
field and a night line of march.
Frosh Pageant, which had been a
regular feature of the program, was
discontinued in 1933, and Lantern
Night was given in connection with
Homecoming that spring.
Seniors Were Honored
1934 presented an innovation in the
annual affair by having only the six
seniors voted by each house as being
the most outstanding in leadership
and service in WAA compose the
block "M." These girls were honored
at a supper before the march.
The spring of 1936 found Frosh
Pageant presented again as a feature
of Lantern Night. Box lunches were
brought again and a dance was
planned on the tennis courts, but
inclement weather prevented this lat-
ter plan from taking place.
The 'Sing' characteristic of Lantern
Night began in 1938 when an all
women's sing was planned. Twenty-
four groups entered and the winner
of the Interfraternity Sing was on

the program also. The sing was pre-
ceded by a line of march from the li-
brary, led by senior women holding
the five major positions on campus
and the University of Michigan Band.
Women Formed 'M'
Over 600 women marched that
night, the "M" was formed, and the
"Yellow and Blue" was sung. Pi Beta
Phi won the first sing as well as the
last one, 1940. The participation cup
was given for the first time for house's
participation in WAA activities.
Since 1938 the plan of Lantern
Night has been the same. In 1939,
Kappa Delta won the cup, and Mar-
tha Cook outsang all other groups.
Last year 925 women marched in the
annual processional and Alpha Delta
Pi won the cup. Twenty-four groups
have entered this year's sing, and the
same form for the evening will be
pursued as was in 1938.
New Grecian Coiffures
Provide Best Answer
To Wind-Blown Heads
Grecian simplicity is reflected in
some of the smart new ideas for
practical ways of wearing the hair.
It is a feeling of repose that the new
soft waves, classic sculptured lines,
and smooth curls indicate.
Subtle use of false hair is coming
into its own; this false braid is skill-
fully wound around the head,, half
under the pompadour and the roll
at the nape of the neck. The days of
madly-blowing hair are over, for
awhile at least.
Yellow Is Chosen
As Summer Color
For Accessories, Suits
There is nothing retiring about the
colors chosen to accent our summer.
Yellow is one of the most promising
-it brings out the warm tones of
sun-tanned skin, makes a blond
blonder, a brunette more so.
Whole suits of brilliant yellow, or
sport dresses and outfits are good;
equally good are flashes of yellow
against black or other dark shades.
The new rich chocolate brown is a
natural setting for the startling yel-

Attend .Dramas
That the popularity of the Ann Ar-
bor Dramatic Season is not confined
to this city alone is evident from a
glanc at the orders being received
daily at the box office, Mrs. Lucille
Walz, Business Manager, said recent-
For years, clubs, schools and organ-
izations have found in this Dramatic
Season an educational value as well
as pure entertainment, and annually
groups of from ten to eighty arrange
to attend the plays.
This year the Milan Woman's Club
has ordered 30 sets of tickets while
one group from Adrian has arranged
for 48 season tickets. The Edison
Institute of Dearborn will be repre-
sented by 20 or 30 coming over each
High Schools Attend
No longer is the dramatic enthus-
iasm limited to adults and those of
college age, for even high school stu-
dents have come to realize the value
of the opportunity afforded. High
schools of Bay City, Port Huron, Sag-
inaw, Ypsilanti, Fordson, Detroit,
Flint and Tecumseh will all be repre-
sented at the plays.
State boundaries, too, mean very
little, as is indicated by the fact that
large Ohio groups are planning to
make the trip to Ann Arbor. Indiana
customers come from Fort Wayne
and South Bend.
Matinees Are Popular
Matinees have proved especially
popular with many residents from
Birmingham, Albion, Highland Park,
Royal Oak, Battle Creek, Marshall
and Kalamazoo, who will be driving
over on Tuesdays or Saturdays.
Though the sale of :season seats
both to Ann Arbor residents and those
from out-of-town has been unusually
heavy, there are still good seats
available for all performances. The
season sale will continue through the
first week of plays and seats for a
single performance are now on sale
at the box office.
