Senior Dance
Patrons List

A good lead for any column at this time of year is always to pull all the
stops about "The last Fling of the Season" . . . or "With finals coming
closer and closer . . ." but we'll spare you all that and bring our little weekly
prayer meeting together on some other theme. There ain't no denyin',
though, that we're all feeling slightly on the scholarly side at this point.
(Boy, you've got to feel scholarly when you're writing something like three
term papers in one night). So, just to keep you in that desperately literary
mood which passeth all understanding we shall add, at discreet intervals,
j clarifying footnotes. These, we are told, are indispensible to a treatise like
It's High Time .
prng JoNrina Again . ..
Spring Formals' (1.) must be dealt with, so lets deal with them without
preliminaries. To put it briefly, there were a Iot of 'em. In fact, there was
such a run on the chaperons list that the Dean's Office almost had to make
a few additions so that there would be enough "squaw watchers," as a well-
known campus society calls them, to go around.
Thursday was Memorial Day, and as good as an excuse as any to give
a Spring Formal, for which there doesn't legally have to be any excuse. The
es**sy.- Chi Phis' (2) had one that was attended, among
others, by Helen Whiting and Art Carpenter, Nona
' Ray Parker and Dan O'Connor, Rae Gustafson and
! 4 Johnnie Rookus, and Elise Clark and John Stover.
Chi Omega had its formal on the same night,
and the competition might have been stiff, but
there were quite a few couples* 3), there, too.
Jane Ann Visscher and Bob Fitzgerald, "Speedo"
Swift and Bill Lapworth, Jane McLean and Neil
Sperhake, Kit Upson and Chock Low, Janet Cottrell and Dan Powers, and
Betty Durocher and Joe Van Antwerp were all there.
Tu e Champion A libi . .
The rize Of The Week, a cracked recording of one of Graham
McNamee's old World Series broadcasts, goes to Ye Ed. of the Daily Sport
page for his world-beating alibi. Ye ed. takes quite a lot of kidding, because
his dancing ain't what it should be; in fact, it just ain't. "My gosh, why
don't you learn how to dance," said one of his hecklers. "I saw you dipping
the other night, and it looked terrible." "Dipping?" screamed the outraged
ed. "She tripped me!"
The Phi Gains decided to cash in on their nickname Friday night and
go native with a "Fiji Island" dance. Everything was present from grass
skirts* (4) to pure pineapple juice, served in cocoanut shells, its purity from
any sullying influence insured by Stu Miller. Some of the islanders there
were Bob Titus and Margaret Dodge, Fred Anderson and Jeanne Crump,
Carol Wolfe and Jim Harrison, Ginny Boardman and Bob Gelston, Nan
Wagner and Andy Ritter, and Butch Jordan and his fiancee. Buck Dawson,
we might add, certainly deserved to have a good time at the party, if any-
one ever did. He broiled himself to the consistency of fine saddle leather in
the sun for two weeks before the affair, just so he'd look like a native. (He
doesn't look like a native.)
*(1) Affairs which consist of females in cotton formals, males in white
coats (more or less); usually is included a Country Club, and always included
is an orchestra whose vocalist has adenoids.+
* (2) A fraternity. Fraternities are college institutions which are sup-
posed to be snobbish. (But they got men in 'em, Cobina. That's enough
recommendation for us.)
*(3) Couples usually consist of a man and a woman. Further explana-
tion unnecessary.+

For JGP Plots
Are Explained
Now that you've dragged out your
tooth-worn pencils and frayed eras-
ers, all set to delve into the witty
depths of your brain determined to
write the prize winning JGP script,
here are some suggestions that might
help you along the way.
The plot must cover two acts. with
one act being slightly longer and the
climax should come at the end of the
second act. Next track down a plot,
steering clear of those that are local,
that is, keep it away from Ann Arbor
or any other college - such themes
were worn out long ago.
It has been suggested by the com-
mittee that some brave person at-
tempt a satirical show in the classical
play group - perhaps a takeoff on
one of Shakespeare's dramas.
About 10 or 15 leading roles should
be included in the play; and few male
leads should be used as it is difficult
for women to put them across. And,
as long as we're violently shouting
the "don'ts," exclude love scenes for
the result is usually disastrous.. ,
Also keep in mind that the more
opportunity you offer for songs and
dances, the more likely your script
will pass the preliminary bench of
All synopses of scripts must be in
by July 1, while the deadline for com-
plete scripts is November, Mary Lou
Ewing, '43, general chairman, an-
nounced. Anyone may enter the con-
test, she said, as it is not limited to
women nor to undergraduate students.

As the school year draws to a close,
students in the Spanish department
are turning their eyes south of the
border with the prospect of spending
their summer in Mexico and South
The ever-increasing interest in
Spanish and in our relations with the
Latin American democracies has in-
duced several Michiganites to form
a minor exodus to the lands of our
southern neighbors - and in various
The Rev. and Mrs. W. W. Thomas,
who have been in the Graduate
School, will go by steamer to Bogota,
Colombia, where they plan to con-
tinue their teaching in the American
College there.
Michelle Silverman, '41, will also
take to the waves, leaving from New
York, with a stop at Havana, and fin-
ally landing at Vera Cruz. From there
she will travel to Mexico City to study
Spanish shorthand and typing.
Don Rivette, '41, of Ann Arbor, is
joining the army to do foreign service
as an officer in Puerto Rico.
Mexico seems to hold the greatest

attraction for Michigan students. Five
of them are driving to the University
of Mexico to study in its Summer
Session; June Larson, Norma Bennett,
RuthdBennett, Frank Hagerty, and
Claude Hulet. Miss Norma Bennett,
and Mr. Hulet are the retiring and
incoming presidents, respectively, of
La Sociedad Hispanica.
John Falconieri, who along with
Miss Larson was the recipient of a
scholarship to the Mexican school,
intends to join the group of Mich-
igan students there, and Miss Car-
melita Rosasco of Ann Arbor will
motor down with her parents to at-
tend the Summer Session.
Jean Crump, '42, will assist in edit-
ing the July issue of "Mademoiselle"
first, and then plans to visit Mexico
afterwards, as does Robert Mantho
sometime during vacation.
