Sophomores, Juniors Eligible
For Chairmanships; Interviews,
Will Be Held Thursday, Friday
Beginning earlier than in previous
years, petitioning for Panhellenic
Banquet, which will be held Monday
October 28, and for Panhellenic Ball,
which will be held on Friday. Decem-
ber 6, will open today and will con-
tinue until 5:00 p.m. Wednesday.
Annabel Van Winkle, '41, president
of Panhellenic, announced yesterday.
In order to give underclassmen an
opportunity to get started in League
activities, graduating seniors will be
excluded from petitioning. Women
eligible for positions on the central
committee will include the sopho-
more and junior delegates from each
house and two or three other women
of each sorority's own choice.
Special Interests Shown
Because petitioning and inter-
viewing for both the banquetsand
the ball will be held at the same
time, it will be necessary for each
woman to specify in which activity
she is interested in working.
Interviewing for Banquet positions
will be held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
on Thursday and Friday of next
week. The positions will be an-
nounced for the banquet the follow-
ing Sunday in The Daily.
Central Positions Open
Central committee positions for
the banquet include: general chair-
man and chairmen of menu, pro-
gram, tickets, music, decorations and
patrons committees. Ball commit-
tee chairmanships include: general
chairman and chairmen of tickets
and patrons committees. Co-chair-
men of decorations and chairmen
of the publicity, ballroom, music and
favors committees will be chosen at
the same time.
Positions for the Panhellenic Ball
will be announced at a later date.
As in the past, petitions should be
handed in at the Undergraduate Of-
fiee of the League.
W i I Be Today

By GRACE MILLER
It would take a tedious search to
find two women who occupy moret
distant points on the scale of fem-
inine types than Dorothy Thompsont
and Ruth Draper.
Miss Thompson, who will speak
here Nov. 29 as a part of the regular
lecture series, frankly admits that
wromen all too often bore and event
irritate her. Their minds are usually
too absorbed with petty details to1
be well-informed on any large scope
On the other hand, Miss Drapert
understands women so thoroughlys
that she cannot only write a few
lines and have a woman's whole
personality sharply defined, but also
speak the lines, with a few clever
gestures, so that the woman pctured
is living and breathing before even
the most unresponsive of audiences.
Perhaps the fact that Miss Thomp-
son was the brilliant, energetic and
somewhat repressed daughter' of a
minister might account for her feel-
ing to some degree. In another type
of girl, a life filled with meetings of
the ladies' guild, and ruled by the
hawk eye of public opinion would
have produced a sweet, feminine,
demure creature. But not the
Left Home Early
Instead she left dome" as soon as
she could after several unsuccessful
attempts before she was five years
old. Could it have been a slight re-
sentment of her sex that perversely
induced her to dive head firsr jmno
the woman suffrage movement? Or
perhaps she was sincerely fighting
for our side.
Years of batting around Europe,
meeting the great minds abroad, ex-
changing news slants with the top
foreign correspondents of home
newspapers were probably direct
steps to her present respect of mas-
culine directness and lack of preju-
Aside from the fact that Miss
Draper's mother had some dramatic
talent, her uncanny ability to re-
flect all sides of the feminine na-
ture with amazing sympathy is a
quality that is innate and as natural
as breathing to her. She portrays
the utter silliness of a debutante
with a richness of comprehension
that leaves no room for the sketch
to shade into a cruel satiric charac-
For the afternoon teas, Blacks are outstanding with others of
Red Earth, Soldier boy blue, and Khaki green.
