At Annual Assembly Banquet
"Hi, Ho, Come to the Fair" is the
theme song to which independent
"Lassies" will enter the ballroom of
the League at 6 p.m. bmorrow to,
attend the annual Assembly Banquet.'
Jean Hubbard, '42, general chair-
man of the event, will act as toast-
mistress and introduce the speakers.
Prof. John L. Brumm, chairman of
the Department of Journalism, will
be the main speaker of the evening,
and he has announced that the sub-
ject of his talk will be closely co-
ordinated with the theme of the
Awards To Be Presented
Highlights of the evening include
the presentation of awards for schol-
arship and activities to the prize
"chickens" of each class and the tap-
ping of six new members by Senior
Society, honorary women's group.
Bright yellow sunflowers, a gay
assortment of all shapes and sizes of
balloons, silhouettes in the window
and a yellow and blue auction booth
play main parts in the scheme of
decorations. Awards for activities
and scholarship will be presented to
the honored students and groups
from this booth.
Honors To Be Announced
Registrar Ira M. Smith will present
individual scholarship awards to the
woman in each class who has made
the highest record during the past
year. It has been a tradition to award
a book to the house averaging the
highest in scholarship, an honor that
has gone to Alumni House for the
past five years. Dean Alice Lloyd
will make this award. Patricia Wal-
pole, '41, president of Assembly
will present an activities award to
the two women in each class who have
earned the highest number of League
points during the past year.
Marjorie'Polumbaum, '42, chairman
of the ticket committee, has an-
nounced that last minute ticket re-
quests may still be had from mem-
bers of the committee until 6 p.m.
today. Contrary to the notice print-
ed in yesterday's Daily, tickets will
not be sold at the door on the night
of the banquet. Dormitory residents
may obtain tickets for 45 cents, but
all other independents must pay the
regular price of 70 cents.

Off the fSfck
"Lothario" in his "Man's Eye View"
column last week made a crack about
two women crashing the press box at
the Penn game and implied that
what women didn't know about foot-
ball would fill two GWTW-sized vol-
And the other day, that disintegrat-
ed, dissolute, Touchstone, ridiculed
our talent for organization.
After lengthy consideration, we've
decided that the boys are just jeal-
ous. We'd do a much better job if
we had charge of the football game
AND the team, and they know it!
For instance ...
Michigan's team was humbled by
the Illini last year because they pulled
off a trick play successfully. That's
what we need-more trick plays!
Suppose Harmon, Westfall and Evy
got drafted. Then where would we
Here's Football News!
Here's one we worked out that I
think is terrific. First of all, the
boys would have to get some new
chapeaux, to be the exact color of a
football. Then after a barrage of
line-drives, passes, end-around, and
other conventional plays (just to
make our brown-jug friends feel at
home) the quarterback gives out with
the sig'nals for this super-terrific,
God-bless-our-All-American play. But
these signals are different. Instead
of yelling a mess of numbers, Evy
starts chanting like the tobacco auc-
tioneer ,and that's the high sign for
all the boys on the team to take off
their head-gear, hug them to their
bodies, shield them with their arms,
and start running like mad for the
Minnesota or what-have-you (and
personally, I'd .rather start with the
or-what etc. team) goal line. Every-
body does this except the guy who's
carrying the ball, of course. He takes
cff his hat about two plays previous-
ly, and, at the psychological mo-
ment, runs like mad, too. Nobody
on the other team knows who to
tackle, and Wee Davey Nelson makes
the touchdown. Simple, aren't they,
these brains-over-brawn tactics? And
the best part is, the boys will no
longer have to keep strict training.
That makes everybody happy, n'est
ce pas?
New Announcer Suggested
Another change we'd suggest is to
have Bullet Bob Benchly do the an-
nouncing. Can't you just imagine
the response he'd get when that ro-

Ruthven Teas
Will Resume
First Tea Of Series To Be Held
Nov. 6 At President's Home
The first of the series of teas given
each year by President and Mrs.
Ruthven and open to all students on
campus will be held from 4 p.m. to
6 p.m. Wednesday in the president's
home, Virginia Osgood, '41, chairman
of the social committee of the League
has announced.
All social committee members must
attend the tea in order to assist she
hostesses, Miss Osgood said. Group
I, which includes members whose
names begin with letters A-E, will be
in charge of the tea and will act as
hostesses for the affair. Marney
Gardner, '42, is in charge of Group
I and she is assisted by Betty John-
son. '42.
Special invitations have been ex-
tended to these groups, Pi Beta Phi,
the school of library science, Phi
Kappa Psi, Michigan House, and
Jordan Hall.
These teas will be given about every
two weeks throughout the year, and
everyone is invited to come besides
the groups to whom special invita-
tions are given.
bust "personality" voice floated over
the stadium in an enthusiastic "Good
Then, there's the little matter of
the program between halfs. Think
of the interest we'd have stirred up
last week if we'd had Charlie Barnet's
band march out on the field playing
Pennsylvania 6-5-0-0-0. And inci-
dentally, how about having Glenn
Miller out there to do a little field
work on "The Little Brown Jug?"
Or even Mickey Rooney, to "Strike
Up the Band?"
And as long as we're getting so
far away from the subject, how about
having TYRONE POWER out here
on general principles?

League House
Will Petition
Petitioning by eligible represen a-
tives for officers' posts in the League
house group will begin Tuesday and
last until 5 p.m. Wednesday, Patri-
cia Walpole, '41, president of As-
sembly, announced yesterday.
Miss Walpole added that inter-
viewing, conducted by the Assembly
executive council, for officers posi-
tions will take place from 3 p.m. t.o
5 p.m. Thursday in the Kalamizoo
Room at the League.
Representatives Are Eligible
It is necessary that every League
house have elected its permanent
representatives by the beginning ,of
the week, because it is from these
women that the officers of the group
will be elected. Any eligible repre-
sentative in her sophomore, junior
or senior years is urged by Miss Wal-
pole to petition, for any or all offices.
Suggestions given by the petition-
er concerning each post will be given
careful consideration before the can-
didate is chosen, Miss Walpole said.
Those who petition are requested to
bring their eligibility cards when they
are interviewed.
Offices Are Open
Offices open for petitioning are
president, vice-president and secre-
tary-treasurer. All but vice-presi-
dent become members of the Assem-
bly Board. Each one of the 40 League
houses elects annually one represen-
tative to the League house group.
This group handles the administra-
tive and legislative matters concern-
ing the League houses and is respon-
sible to the women of their respec-
tive houses for representation in
Assembly and for all campus women's
Petitioning and interviewing are
regarded by the Assembly Executive
Council as being the most expeditious
method of organizing the League
touses this fall, Miss Walpole said.

Mildred Radford, '42, Bette Corlett, '41, and Carolyn Denfield,
'42Ed, will be among the models at the Daily fashion show to be held
Thursday in the Michigan Theatre. Campus women will model clothes
exhibited by Ann Arbor shops.
Assembly To Sponsor First
In Series Of Weekend Dances

,.\ \\ ~\v.Q\ N >~ '\~,&~zN~'Sst~x.\ \\~\\ \ \N37>\>~N><' ,~<


The first in a series of Friday and
Saturday dances, to be sponsored by,
Assembly, Independent Woman's or-
ganization, will be held from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8 in the ball-
room of the League, Patricia Wal-
pole, '41, president of Assembly, an-
nounced yesterday.
A need for more room where stu-
dents can dance to the music of well-
known orchestras has been felt, Miss
Walpole said, because of the fact that
only one of the campus ballrooms
has been holding informal all-cam-
pus dances this year. On nights when
the Union ballroom is being used
for closed dances, she added, there
are few places where students can
go to dance.
Larry Douglas To Play
Assembly's plan for these affairs
is to bring out-of-town bands to
the League Ballroom on occasional
Friday and Saturday nights, Miss
Walpole stated, especially on nights
when class dances and organizations
affairs are being held.
Larry Douglas and his orchestra,
composed of Wayne University stu-
dents, featuring "sweet swing" will
play for the first of the dances. The
orchestra, organized in 1935, played
on the road for three years, earning
enough money to put the entire band
through Wayne University School of

Music, where they are now seniors.
Band Has Been 'Aired'
The band has been featured on all
of the major networks, and, prior to
coming to Ann Arbor, has played
engagements at Detroit, Toledo, Cin-
cinnati and Chicago hotels.
Committees, to mane arrange-
ments with the bands, and to run the
dances, will be announced in a few
days by Miss Walpole.
Prof. Carr To Speak
Prof. Lowell J. Carr of the Sociolo-
gy Department will be the speaker
at 7 p.m. today at the meeting of
the Congregational Student Fellow-
ship. Professor Carr will discuss the
importance of the family as a unit
in present-day life. After the program
refreshments will be served.
Hillel Committee Meets
There will be a meeting of the
Hillel social committee at 4:30 p.m.
tomorrow at the Found tion. All peo-
ple interested in workng on arrange-
ments for the annual fall dance.
as well as other activities of the
social committee, are requuested to
be present at this meeting, Laura
Katznel, 41Ed, social chairman, an-
