9t HIGHlt TIME!-
Patrons of the arts were either honored or outraged-we can't decide
which--at the Doodle Dance sponsored by the Architectural School last
Friday. The serious art did the honoring, and the doodles did the outrag-
ing with things that looked like something Salvadore Dali might draw onI
a rainy Sunday. The dancers, disturbed, though they no doubt were, byI
the weird decoration, kept right on dancing in the approved manner. Ollie
Rae Bilby and Johnny Stamm, Esther Guntley and Nick Athens, Helen Cox-
man and Eddie Stroko, and Fern Rice and Phil Dickinson were among them,
-the dancers, we mean, not the doodles.

hung slightly to one side. His eyes were becoming
glazed and haunted, and he clenched and unclenched
his hands nervously. Finally, one could see that he
had made the great resolve. He edged carefully over
to the picture, looking furtively over his shoulder,
straightened it, and then threw back his shoulders
with a sigh of relief. But he hadn't looked carefully
enough. The presid'ential voice boomed out: "You're
going to make some girl a wonderful husband." The

presidential voice has remarkable carrying qualities. Exit Schell amid
snickers of a suddenly gathered audience.
The Phi Epsilon Pi's, heated up with the Spring Formal fever, gave
their-Spring Formal, of course, on Friday night. Some of the couples there,
were Adeline Gittlen and Al Hirschfeld, Edith Sandler and Dick Allen, Bert
rater and Sylvia Kasper, Barbara Finsterwald and Dick Goldsmith, andI
.arbara Savage and Ralph Berlow.
Frannie Mendelssohn volunteers to add class (unquote) to this edition
of the column with her contribution. Mademoiselle Mendelssohn attended
the Ivy Ball at the University of Pennsylvania, which affair is one of the
swankiest given in the East. (It says here) Good for Frannie, and may we all
take a lesson from her.
The Parade Of he Formal-cers ...
Kappa Kappa Gamma also decorated its chapter house with Spring
Formal-eers on Saturday night. (Al right so Spring Formals are getting
monotonous; can we help it? )\ Anyway dear readers-or reader-be patient,
spring can't last forever, and you probably enjoy go-
ing to them as much as Ann Winters and George Combs,,
Betty Kinsey and Ben Douglas, Margaret Dodge and
Irl Brent, Elaine Richert and Webb Cook, and Betty
Henkel and Nevin Jamieson did.
Theta Xi's formal-and we are on them, aren't
we?-was decorated Friday night by such luminariesY
(That makes the column sound more Broadway-ish) as Helen Jean and Don
Kipka, Liz Graham and Bill Wadsworth, Jane Connell and Chuck Munn,
and Suki Scheffer and John Hunter.

Needy English Children Are 'Adopted'
By Ann Arbor Residents AndGroups

Dr. and Mrs. R. Bunting

Baby War Veteran

shelter in England for 30 children for
a year.
Buntings 'Adopt' Child
Foster parents of young Raymond
are Dr. Russell Bunting, Dean of
the College of Dentistry, and Mrs.
Bunting. Information direct from
England concerning the baby States
that there are two children in his
family whose income is only -3.00
a week, of which 12/6 has to be
paid for rent. Adoption will enable
the youngster to have greatly needed
extra nourishment of which he would
otherwise be deprived.
Approximately 200 such adoptions
have been made in Ann Arbor in re-
cent months, according to Mrs. Slos-
son, while $500 has been raised since
May 1 toward the shelter - the fund
for which it is hoped will be coni-
pleted by commencement time in
June. Since it has been impossible to
bring children to this country since
the bombing of the children's ship
last fall, "adoption" or contribution
toward the shelter is suggested as
the next best thing to actually car-
ing for a child.
School Children Contribute
Largest single contributor toward
the cause of the Federation, accord-
ing to Mrs. Slosson, has been the

Baby "war veterans," such as two-
year-old Raymond George, pictured
here, are among the English children
who are being "adopted" by Ann Ar-
bor individuals and organizations
through the Save the Children Fed-
eration under the sponsorship in Ann
Arbor of Mrs. Preston Slosson.
Thirty dollars will "adopt" a child
for a year with the money going to
England to pay for milk, medicine,
food, or clothing according to the
child's most urgent needs. In addition
to the sponsorship of these adoptions,
the local chapter of the Federation
is attempting to raise $3000 for a

Of the 120 students who applied
for scholarships last year, 60 received
interviews. Out of those interviewed
only five were turned down, leaving 55
deserving and needy students. "Un-
fortunately, however, only 11 scholar-
ships could be awarded," said Dean
Lloyd S. Woodburne.
With this situation in mind, the
Student Senate is sponsoring the
Scholarship dance to be held Friday
in the Union with the hope that with
the money raised more scholarships
may be given to worthy students.
Example Is Typical
A typical example of the truly "de-
serving" student is Mr. Y. He is a
'ophomore in the College of Litera-
ture, Science and the Arts. He has
been entirely self-supporting during
these two years of college except
for an Alumni Undergraduate Schol-
arship, which pays his tuition. He
has worked successively as a waiter
in a local cafe and at the .Michigan
The family-income is meagre and
so irregular that it is utterly impos-
sible for his family to give him any
assistance whatever. Despite these
handicaps he has maintained a scho-
lastic average of 3.7. In order that

he may pursue his plan of further
study in economics and business ad-
ministration, it will be absolutely es-
sential for him to receive some assis-
tance in the form of scholarships.
