Fall Season's
First Parties

Jumpers Rival Skirts For Favor

Open Houses And Informal
Dances Will Be Sponsored
By Dormitories And Societies
As would be expected from a cam-
pus of this caliber, the first big
weekend of the year is starting out
with one terrific round of open
houses, dances and parties. The rival-
ry between Michigan State and Mich-
igan does not seem to prevent the
brothers here from giving the bro-
thers there a warm welcome, and the
dorms are right in there too!
Just to substantiate this last state-
ment, there is the West Quadrangle,
which includes Adams, Chicago, Lloyd,
Wenley and Winchell Houses, who
are going to repeat their traditional
open house following the game to-
day. Refreshments will be served
between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. in
the Concourse with the house moth-
ers acting as hostesses to the par-
ents and guests of the boys.

Martha L. Ray, social director, and
Miss Rosemary Neihaus will pour.

bour are to hold forth at tea dances
from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. today. The
social chairman of Betsy Barbour is

League Group
Will Present
News Bulletin
Information About Women's
Activities Wil Be Featured
In Forthcoming Publication

Aviatrix Carolyn Anne Hager
Descends On Michigan By Air

"What's Up" at the League-a
common question to be answered in
the future by a small bulletin of the
same name. "What's Up" will make
its first appearance Oct. 10 at the
newly inaugurated House President's
meeting in the League.
League Houses, dormitories, and
sorority houses will then have at
their disposal a 'brief bulletin con-
taining pertinent information about
League petitioning. interviews, and
committee meetings, in addition to
contributions by the League Council
and the Judiciary Committee.
"What's Up" will be published once
a month throughout the year.
Work on "What's Up" will be par-
tially taken over this year by the
members of the League Publicity
Committee who will work in con-
junction with the Judiciary Commit-
tee, who conceived the idea of the
bulletin and published one issue last
spring. Hopes of the women work-
ing on the project now are to en-
large the bulletin into a small League
newspaper containing details on
League events of interest to all cam-
pus women.
Women interested in assisting with
the publication of the paper may do
so through the League Publicity com-
Betty Boothby To Wed
Frank Smith Today
In Methodist Church
Elizabeth Boothby, '40, daughter
of Mrs. Alfred Russel Boothby, of
Westbrook. Me., will be married to
Frank Smith, '38E, son of Mr. and
Mrs. F. Smith, of Corning, N. Y., at
11 a.m. today in the chapel of the
Methodist Church in Ann Arbor.
William Boothby, the bride's broth-
er, will give her away, and Dorothy
Cox, Grad., and Josephine Fry, '40,
will be bridesmaids. Best man will
be William Smith, brother of the
Elinor Sevison, '41.

A course in aeronautical engineer-
ing may teach Carolyn Anne Hager,
'43, a great deal of engineering, but
to this veteran aviatrix little can be
taught in the way of actual flying.
At an early age Miss Hager was
interested in anything that had to
do with planes. In fact. it might be
said that she was born with her
wings. For her mother, Alice R. Ha-
ger, is a noted writer of several avia-
tion books, one of which is "Wings
Over America." Mrs. Hager also re-
ceived a plaque for being one of the
few people who has spent over 1,000
hours in the air. It is quite plausible
that the interest in flying is a hered-
itary trait.
Began Flying At 17
It was at the age of 11 that MissI
Hager met Amelia Earhart, and af-
ter that time she anxiously awaited
the day that she would start flying.
That day came when she was 17
years old. She began taking flying

lessons in Alexandria, Virgina, and
after three weeks of training in dual
control she began soloing. Within
three months she received her private
pilot's license, after successfully com-
pleting 35 hours of flying.
Miss Hager entered Stanford Uni-
versity upon graduation from high
school. There she was an active
member of the Stanford flying club.
She represented the school in the
National Intercollegiate Flying Meet.
and ran off with the third prize in
the safety division.
Lone Woman To Enter Contests
Glories didn't end here, for she was
continually entering contests in "spot
landing" at the Alexandria, Virginia.
airport. In a contest such as this,
the flyer must set down the plane
close to a circle 50 feet in diameter,
or on a line one foot wide. The avia-
tor who comes closest to this goal
is the winner. At Virginia Miss Hager
was the only girl pilot to take place
in these contests.


Since September. our aviatrix has
practiced stunt flying. She excels in
this. too. At a meet of the Ninety
Niners at Hartung Field in Detroit
Sept. 29, she received first place
among the group of entrants.
If you hear an airplane motor
booming overhead it might easily be
Miss Hager. She received her own
plane, an Aeronca 65. Sept. 21 for
her nineteenth birthday gift. The
plane will never be sold from lack of
use, as Miss Hager is continually tak-
ing her Alpha Omicron Pi sorority
sisters for free air rides.


Prof. Pollock To Give
'WorldlProblems' Talk

Bill Sawyer, Guest Of Radio
Program, Returns To Union



Prof. James K. Pollock of the Po-
litical Science department will give
the first talk in a series of three
"World Problems" discussions at the
meeting of the Congregational Stu-
dent Fellowship Sunday evening at
7 p.m. Professor Pollock will out-
line the factual situation of the world
today, and will describe the problems
we are now facing.
The second talk in the series will
be given next week by Professor
Preston Slosson of the history de-
partment, who will show the impor-
tance of religion and its relation to
these world events. The third Sun-
day of the series will be taken up
with a discussion by the student
group of the preceding two talks.

Fashion favors your preference this fall. If you like both the jumper,
dress and the sweater and skirt combination, this detachable jumper
ensemble will be a practical addition to your wardrobe. The bodice can
be detached and the skirt can be worn with sweaters or the jumper
blouse. There is an unlimited field of choice in color combinations and
material. The jumper in the illustration is royal blue flannel, and a
gray flannel blouse is worn with it. Corduroy or wool could easily be sub-
stituted as well as other color combinations. Corduroy is becoming a
favorite on campus and wool is always popular. Try the combination
of a jersey blouse and a wool jersey jumper.

From the applause of two conti-
nents, Martha McCrory, '41M, cellist
in Leopold Stokowski's All-American
Youth Orchestra, has returned to the
shadow of the Carillon Tower.
Miss McCrory, first cellist in the
University Orchestra, was chosen
from among 16,000 young musicians
between' the ages of sixteen and
twenty-five who participated in the
elimination contests last spring.
Five hundred were heard personally
by Stokowski, from which a final
selection of one hundred was made.
Didn't Expect Appointment
"I didn't dream I'd make it," in-
sisted Miss McCrory, "so I just re-
laxed and enjoyed the tryout."
The day before leaving Michigan
for her home in Quincy, Ill., she re-
ceived a congratulatory telegram. By
July 8 she was rehearsing with the
orchestra in Atlantic City, N. J.
Enthusiastic audiences heard the
young musicians in their opening
concerts in Atlantic City, Baltimore,
Washington and New York City. Not
only the appeal of youth, picked tal-
ent and famous leadership distin-
guished the concerts. A special seat-
ing plan was initiated by Stokowski,
with string instruments in the back
and woodwind in front, arranged on
a portable stage with sound reflec-
Sailed For South America
From sweltering summer in New
York City, the Youth Orchestra
sailed July 26 towards South Amer-
ican winter. Shipboard festivities
and sight-seeing were mingled with
a schedule of intense practice.
"But Mr. Stokowski was always
patient and considerate of us," Miss
McCrory hastened to add.
Stokowski endeared himself to
Michigan students during the May
Festival of 1936 when he joined them
in song at the Pretzel Bell.
Still enthusiastic among youth, he
Al l State Tradition To Be
Theme Of Union Dance
Taking the Michigan-Michigan
State tradition off the gridiron and
putting it into the more congenial
atmosphere of the Union ballrooms,
is the purpose of the annual All-
State dance to be held tonight, ac-
cording to Dick Scherling, '42, so-
cial chairman of the Union.
As has been the custom for many
years, two orchestras have been en-
gaged to supply continuous music
for the dancers. Bill Sawyer's band
will play in the Rainbow room, and
Tommy Snyder and his orchestra
will keep the dancers busy in the

Trinidad Gets First Concert
Never, before the performances of
the Youth Orchestra, had a concert
been given in Trinidad or the Do-
minican Republic. The largest au-
dience of the tour, 28,000, turned out
for this first concert to be given in
the Dominican Republic.
September 17the orchestra docked
in New York, met by Mrs. Franklin
D. Roosevelt. Once again American
audiences heard the Youth Orches-
tra at Carnegie Hall, Baltimore,
Washington and Philadelphia, where
they parted. Most of the members
were professional musicians, youth-
ful representatives of such renowned
organizations as the Philadelphia.
