Young Britons
Are 'Adopted'
By City Schools
Save The Children Federation
Sponsors Drive For Shelter;
League Council Donates $60
Youthful Britons, victims of war,
are continuing to receive American
support from Ann Arbor residents and
organized groups who are "adopting"
English younsters through the Save
the Children Federation under the
sponsorship in Ann Arbor of Mrs.
Preston Slosson.
"Adoptions" cost foster parents $30
for each child with the money going
to England to buy food, clothing or
medical supplies as are needed most
by the child. In addition the Federa-
tion is sponsoring a drive to raise
$3000 for the erection of a shelter
in England for 30 children for a year.
Schools Adopt Children
Among recent adoptions by Ann
Arborites have been those of the
pupils of the Mack and Perry Schools.
New daughter of the Mack School
pupils is Christina Murphy, an 11-
year-old child, the third in a family
of seven. Her father is a laborer with
an income inadequate for the needs
of his family. Christina is in poor
health so that adoption will enable
her to have food and medicine she
would otherwise be without.
Pupils of the Perry School have
adopted Leslie Hutchinson, a 10-year-
old boy who has had badly infected
lungs since he had diphtheria two
years ago. His mother, a widow, re-
ceives only a small widows' pension
and has no income for Leslie al-
though she works for a man in re-
turn for food for herself and the
boy. Leslie, who has been attend-
ing his school clinic for treatment,
will also be helped to better health
through American adoption.
League Council Contributes
; ,Fifth Ann Arbor school group to
sponsor a child is the Tappan School;
Bach and Angell schools adopted
children a month ago. In addition
. members of the women's League
Council voted a contribution to the
Federation of $60 earned by senior
women through a silver survey.
Gratification for the work Ann Ar-
bor people are doing was expressed
to Mrs. Slosson recently in a letter
from Capt. George F. Gracey of the
London offices of the Federation, who
stated that he had "never seen more
accomplished in such a short time."
Sir Robert and Lady Mayer, who are
honorary members of the organization
along with Captain Gracey, will be in
Detroit Wednesday at a tea to be
sponsored for the benefit of the

Anita Louise
To Attend Ball
Harmon's Senior Dance Guest
Will Be Blonde Screen. Queen
Arriving by plane from Los Angeles
June 19, Anita hLouise, screendqueen,
sweet young thing and blonde, will
plunge immediately into a week-end
that is supposed to be a typical Mich-
igan occurence, including housepar-
ties, Senior Ball and Tom Harmon.
Miss Louise,hwho will play the fem-
inine lead with Harmon in "Harmon
of Michigan," is taking this oppor-
tunity to study the Michigan campus,
and spirit - in other words, to mar-
shal all her talent, which she will
need to accomplish the dubious feat
of impersonating the Michigan co-ed.
As Harmon's guest, Miss Louise
will attend the Phi Delta Theta hous
party, which is becoming a house
tradition for Senior Ball week-end.
For all day Friday, a picnic has been
planned, to be held at Loch Alpine,
where the Phi Delta Thetas and the
'Phi Kappa Psis will get. thenselvcs
in shape to rush la petite Louise
at the dance Friday night.
Saturday Miss Louise will probably
attend the, commencement exercises
with Harmon's parents, Mr. and Mrs.
L. A. Harmon, who will drive up from
Gary, for the day.
"It's just going to be an extra-busy
week-end; she'll have to get as much
of Michigan as she can in just those
few days," is Harmon's way of look-
ing at it. His itinerary for the en-
tire week-end is being arranged by'
the studio.
Immediately after graduation Har-
mon will be driving west for the pre-
liminary days of wardrobe planning
and script study before the actual
shooting of the picture begins. Ad-
vance background shots have al-
ready been made of the campus -
a set of The Daily is being built inl
Hollywood. His parents will join him1
out there in about two weeks.'

If you're planning to spend the
summer in one long sun bath, in-
terspersed with a bit of food and
sleep, you might just as well do some-
thing constructive at the same time,
like a JGP script for example. I
You'd be surprised the plots that
could be concocted out of those in-
tangible ideas that race madly,
through your brain while you lie ,in
the sun. Summer ideas may not be
any too profound, but JGP is any-
thing but a serious, dramatic adven-
ture, so there could be some corrola-
tion between them.
X100 Is Worth It!
And just think of that $100 - may-
be - what would you do with it?
Or the trip to New York, all expenses
paid to say nothing of free theatre
Of course, those people behind the
$100 demand two acts, numerous=
scenes, no corny love scenes, a lack
of male animals, 12 to 20 leading
roles, absolutely devoid of an Ann
Arbor or college atmosphere, etc.
Outside of that you have a free rein.

Oh yes, don't forget "natural" spots
for songs and dances.
Maybe You're Musical?
Now that we're on the musical
angle, if the idea of writing a script
doesn't go over so big, how about
mussing up your hair, distorting your
face and struggling with the keys a
bit? If you can't play the praino,
let somebody else struggle, you do
the creating. It's been rumored that
a certain song in JGP this year was
written by a certain person who had
to have somebody else put, it down
on paper. Well, isn't that the limit?
Anyhow there's no excuse for not
Or let the birds and bees inspire
you into whipping out a tidbit or two
in the way of words that might serve
as companion for a song later on
when auditions are held. -
Now if you're not spurred on to
great achievements, we give up. Any-
how, script synopses are due July 1
and the completed script November 1.
Songs would not be due until some-
time during the second semester of
next year to be announced later.

The girl came into the study hall
at 10 p.m. and called for six books.
Requirements were, in apparent ord-

of last year's final examinations. Close
competition, however, was run by the
history reporters with their armfuls
of thin emaciated books. The dainty
"Chronicals of America" series was
popular as long as it lasted.
"What other qualifications should
a book have for popularity?" I asked
the librarian.
"They used to - ask for interesting
ones at the beginning of the semes-
ter;" he offered after some hesita-
Several students stepped up and




scribbled off requests for Will James'
"Will To Believe." They turned down
the five new copies, and chose in-
stead from the eight worn editions.
I asked for one of these to see what
made it so desirable. There were pen-
cil marks between the printed lines,
and read dashes in the margins, with
remarks like, "Don't be silly, Willy!"
Descartes, Berkeley and Plato were
likewise more popular in their most
mutilated editions. A comparison of
several of these showed that seldom
was the same work twice under-
lined with similar emphasis.
Reviews In Demand
Several requests for books reviews
were turned away, while a call for the
April 22, 1922, copy of the New York
Times Magazine section was discour-
aged with the reply that it was com-
pletely worn out.
"I think it has a book review of

What They're Reading
A shelf of history books was set
apart for free use by students of
one course. During the evening there
were 14 requests for the four most
slender volumes, total width less than
three inches. Several students thumb-
ed through the four thickest books,
which had an average width of two
and one half inches, but only one
of them made out a slip. I asked him
if he intended to read it.
"Eventually," he said. "I'll just
start it tonight. It looks interesting."
"But when will you get your re-
port in?" I asked. Report? He looked
S"Oh,this isn't for a report!" he
said. "I'm not taking the course."

You'll like the TIME-SAVING, FOOD-SAVING, and FUEL-SAVING that these
modern gas ranges, built specially for volumne cooking, will bring to the fraternity and
sorority kitchen. You'll like the flexibility - the capacity - of these sturdy, compact
ranges, for you'll find they can adequately take care of the cooking for the big crowd
on a Homecoming Day, or just as efficiently handle the cooking for the few around the
house during a vacation week. As have many others, you'll discover that the kitchen
keeps much cooler - the thoroughly insulated ovens see to that. And baking or roasting
is done without guesswork by the time and temperature method with the accurate oven
heat controls. Fine broiling and griddle facilities are ready for instant use. The large
top burners give just the right heat for any type of top cooking - instantly.

i n Food
should be uppermost in the
thoughts of everyone who is
seeking good food these hot
days. The place to find these
fashions in food is where the
emphasis is being placed on
hot-weather menus.
