built under the auspices of the 50
organized alumnae groups of the Uni-
versity, have been approved by he
Board of Regents so that construction
of the house can probably begin

Alumnae Council.
Final report on the plans for the
residence will be presented by Mrs.

Building Committee, at the annual
meeting of the Alumnae Council to
be held June 20 here. The Council
will discuss the report in detail and
decide upon final plans for the laying
of the corner stone.
Funds Raised By Sales
Funds for the construction of the
house, which is expected to accomo-
date from 20 to 25 women living
cooperatively have been raised by
sales of playing cards, billfolds, and
jewelry by Council members as well
as by benefit teas, bridge parties,
lectures, plays, and style shows held
in the various organization centers.
Members of the Detroit group re-
cently sponsored a ticket sale on
chances for a cruise to Guatemala in
Central America. Winner of the trip
is to be drawn tomorrow at the fast

Soled Shoes
Keep Sand Out

Do you get sand in your toes whin
you're trying to get tanned on the
Abeach? So many new shoe styles
have been designed that from now on
all worries should be over.
Sandals with two and three inch
cork or wooden soles keep the sand
where it belongs and incidentally al-

To show off your tanned legs wear
white canvas shoes with a multi-col-

moccasins are wonderful foriboth

come in white and colors and are as
cool as walking on a cake of ice-and
much more comfortable!
Roman sandals made of colored
leather are smart, especially with a
matching beach bag which .carries

color add a dash to your costume too.

Architect's Plan Of Cooperative

Alumnae Will Be Grown Up
Quiz Kids At Council Meeting

Just between ourselves, it might pay
for some of you alums to brush up
on your knowledge of what's going
on in ye old University! That enter-
prising organization, Assembly, is go-
ing to present an Alumnae Quiz pro-
gram at the Alumnae Council meet-
ing in June and if somebody's not
careful there are going to be a lot of
questions missed,
The idea of a qiz program %o keep
the alumnae up to date on campus
doings and to acquaint them with the
activities of Assembly, seems like a
good one to us. It's being originated
to serve as a "refreshener" to the
minds of those ex-"Michiganites"
who might have lost touch or become
a little hazy as to just what's what,
where, and why.
Miss Cuthbert Is Chairman
Mrs. Lucille B. Conger, executive
secretary of the Alumnae Council, is
cooperating with the Assemly com-
mittee to put on the program, with
Doris Cuthbert, '42, as chairman.
Besides Miss Cuthbert, the commit-
tee to present the questionnaire con-

you get that one? If not, you'd bet-
ter start remembering now.
Poem Poses Question
It's a pretty safe bet that you
don't know the answer tq this one:'
"What distinguished Michigan gradu-
ate wrote the following poem:
Roses can only be as fair
As nature made them,
But ladies, they can all repair
To art to aid them;
And after powdering their noses,
They can turn them up at roses.
(Hortense Flexner King), (Richard
Kirk), (John Malcolm Brinnin),'(Ma-
bel Holmes Parsons) ."
Well, do you think you know all
the answers?

Theses, Exams

Are Over,

Relax, Read For Entertainment

Keeping abreast of the best sellers
list is practically an impossibility'
when you're trying to get a thesis fin-'
ished on time or cram for a blue-
book, but you'll agree that summer
vacation is the logical time to read-
just for pleasure.
Here are a few suggestions that
should provide something in the way
of conversational topics as well as re-
laxing entertainment. Nptable new-
comer in the field of light and witty;
reading is Sally Benson's offering,'
"Junior Miss." Judy is just a pudgy,
gauche little girl who gets herself in-
to perfectly normal scrapes, but these'
episodic sketches are guaranteed to
make you chuckle sympathetically.
Journalist Writes Excitingly '
Brilliant and exciting is Arthur'
Koestler's novel, "Darkness At Noon,"
which sheds some light on the notori-
ous Moscow trials. Koestler is a
journalist who chooses to write psy-
cho-analytic novels, but his experien-
ces in covering the European news-
front would make an exciting tale by
"Walking the Whirlwind" by Brid
Knight is a family chronicle some-
what on the pattern of the Jalna
series, which has a South African
setting. The process of the Ameri-
canization of an immigrant family'
in three generations is covered by'
Thomas' Bell in his "Out of This Fur-
nace," a saga of the steel industry.
The man in the headlines right
now is Winston Churchill, and pub-
lishers have been quick to swamp us
with books that dwell upon his career.
Phyllis Moir served for a time as the
private secretary of England's war-
time leader and has recorded for
popular enlightenment all the eccen-
tricities and foibles in this dominat-
ing personality. Churchill and his

policy are revealed in "Blood, Sweat
and Teals," a collection of all his
epochal speeches in the House of
Commons. '
Home Talent Revealed
For a Michigan background and
a story about very real people, read
the Hopwood Award winner, "Whistle
Stop" by Maritta Wolff, now being
acclaimed by critics as a promising
An uproarious low-down on cafe;
society is "Trousers Will Be Worn".
Tommy Thompson reveals it to us in
an account that promises to delight
all readers, except perhaps those who
"feel they owe a debt to society."
"Exit Laughing" is another amusing
autobiography, being the reminiscen-
ces of America's beloved Irving S.
Valtin's Sueccess Sensational
Sensational is "Out of the Night"
by the Communist adventurer, Jan
Valtin, whose work led him all over
the world and eventually into the
hands of the Gestapo. This daring
account throws a light on the back-
ground of the present war, especially
the post-war Germany of hungry
people and conflicting ideologies.
Right now, the best seller's list is
crowded with books to satisfy moods
and demands of every reader, from
humor to careful interpretations of
the international situation, so take
advantage of a long vacation and
catch up on the books that are mak-
ing literary news.
