Annual Affair To Be Held
Nov. 4 In League Ballroom
By Independent Women
Petitioning for committee positions
on the annual Assembly Banquet
will begin at 9 a.m. Monday and con-
tinue until 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, ac-
cording to a statement issued yes-
terday by Patricia Walpole, '41, pres-
ident of Assembly.
Interviewing for central commit-
tee positions will be conducted by
the Assembly Board between the
hours of 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Thurs-
day and Friday. Anyone wanting a
central committee job must first hand
in her petition in the Undergrad-
uate Office of the League, before
being interviewed. For those not
planning to petition for chairman-
ships, but who want to be on a com-
mittee, it is only necessary to peti-
Presented By Independents
The banquet, which is given an-
nually by the independent women
on campus, will take place Nov. 4 in
the ballroom of the League. Posi-
tions on central committee which
are open for petitioning include gen-
eral chairman, assistant general
chairman, and heads of the follow-
ing committees: tickets, decorations,
programs, Patrons and publicity. .
All eligible women on campus, in-
cluding transfers, are invited to peti-
tion. Miss Walpole announced that
all applicants must present their eli-
gibility cards before being inter-
viewed. She also suggested that peti-
tioners should state their ideas fully
on the blank which they turn in,
since this gives the committee a bet-
ter opportunity to consider their mer-
Executive Officers Compose Board
The Assembly Board is made up of
the executive officers of the group,
one delegate from each dormitory,
and the president and secretary-
treasurer of the Ann Arbor Independ-
ents, League Houses and Beta Kap-
pa Rho. Officers of Assembly for
the coming year besides Miss Wal-
pole, are Betty Lyman, vice-presi-
dent and Betty Hall, secretary.
It has been a tradition of Senior
Society to tap their twenty members
at Installation Banquet, which is
held in the spring. This year, six
new members will be tapped at the
Assembly Banquet, for there are only
14 seniors in membership now.
Assembly Banquet is .the climax of
the Independent Fortnight, and the
first big event in the independent's
academic calendar. Last year a new
idea was inauguratedfor feting the
scholarship of independent women
at the Banquet. The names of the
three best students each year in each
class will be engraved on a bronze
plaque to be preserved for posterity.
Dear Editor:
To the disappointment of both dat-
ed and undated the pep session of
Friday evening proved to be a com-
plete flop. The whole program
seemed to lack planning. After the
parade down to the Field House the
atmosphere became somber except fpr
a few minutes when Coach Fielding
H. Yost brought down the house.
The lack of organization was ex-
pressed particularly well when the

band left early and left the cheer
leaders to lead the singing and do all
the rallying themselves.
Failure Repeition?
There are two alternatives to re-
peating the failure: either we should
discontinue the pep session altogeth-
er or we should make it worth go-
ing to. A survey of public opinion
would probably reveal preference for
the latter. In that case we must
make the pep session so much fun
that no one will feel like wrecking
the town afterwards.
We might accomplish this by fol-
lowing up a suggestion used last
night. The whole pep session should
be held in the field. Flooding the
field with lights and connecting a
P.A. system would make this possible.
At the end of the speeches the lights
should be disconnected and -the fire
lighted. The fire should include fire
works; firecrackers, sky rockets,
fountains, etc. Hang a Michigan
State flag over the top of it and let
it burn. It is essential that the fire
be large enough to last until the
crowd is satisfied.
Band Is Necessary
Keep the band there. Break up
the cheering with a few songs. Keep
the cheer leaders busy. Above all
keep the crowd interested.

Type Decides
Which is your school of thought
--that which advocates new knee-
length socks or that which is for the
traditional anklet?
There's no doubt that each has its
boosters, but the best thing is that
there is no reason why one shoudn't
enlist under both banners. One
should, of course, remember their
type before taking either.
Those who wear knee-lengths most
successfully are definitely on the
slender side, and must beable to wear
short, flaring skirts. Best looking of
high socks are the tyrolean type in
white with green clocks up the side.
Scotland too has its influence on this
new fad, for those old favorites, ar-
gyles, hav come up to knee level.
Plaid argyles are, however, just
as much in use as anklets as ever
beforeuTheir sophisticated sport look
is a natural favorite with college wo-
men. Otheranklets have just the
cuffs in plaid. Large, dark blue
checks on a light blue sock is a vari-
ation of the plaid theme.
Should you be among those who
have slender ankles, take the op-
portunity to wear big, puffy angora
anklets. To go one step farther than
last year's initials on cuffs, this fall
the whole name is being written out.
Girls at Stevens College hold a
weekly meeting to discuss their bad
habits and how to stop them.

Leading the fashions for street wear and dates are these three
dresses. The skirt lines feature the jumper, pleats and gathers, with
fancy pockets and jumper tops contrasting. Sleeves vary between three-
quarter and full length as well as in fullness. Combining the tailored
and effeminate fashions in wools and velvet leaves choice up to indi-
viduals more than ever. Hats add the finishing touch to the outfit.
Novelty Necklaces Set Styles
But Never Will Replace Pearls

6 ventnqJTari

Just as classic as the practical
sweaters which appear perennially
on the campus are thenecklaces
which, go with them, adding the de-
sired touch of individuality.
The stream of novelty necklaces
made of everything from giant safe-
ty pins to colored sea-shells is nev-
er-ending, but the popular favorites
year in and year out are of course
single or multiple strands of pearls.
They are suitable for every occasion,
but are particularly appropriate as
complements for otherwise plain pull-
overs and cardigans.
Simple Necklaces Good
Other types of simple necklaces
may be mentioned: twisted, beaded
ropes in pastel shades, silver and
gold ones which resemble the snakey
looking stuff keychains are made of.
Also good are the twisted strands
of beads in three tones of gold rang-
ing from a sort of bronze to shades of
copper and white gold.
A rather new and effective neck-
lace is the one of beads made in the
magical DuPont laboratories from
coal tar and water like your Nylon

stockings. The stones vary in shades
from pale blue and pink with the
opaline effect of moonstones, to the
brilliant, glowing ones resembling
sapphires and rubies. -
,Lockets Return
Pendants and lockets reminiscent
of the Victorian era are also becom-
ing to sweaters. Prized" are the fam-
ily heirlooms of this sort with room
for tiny pictures, but modern imi-
tations can be just as attractive, es-
pecially those simple gold ones cov-
ered with mother-of-pearl.
If you are not the kind of a per-
son with a penchant for thinking up
unusual bits of jewelry from rubber
bands and cork, just get a classic type
of necklace and wear it with the
assurance that its conservative beau-
ty makes it suitable for practically
every occasion.
Campus women will be interested
to learn that Mademoiselle suggests
a change from the almost traditional
sweater and blouse to smooth dresses.

cated or sweet, but always smart
