Red Norvo

To Play


'Sunshine Inc.', Sophomore Cabaret

Will Feature
Many Exhibits
Dining Room To Be Converted
To 'Sloppy Joe's; Show To Be
Given Nov. 29, 30 In League
Red Norvo and his orchestra will
play in a tropical, transformed
League ballroom for "Sunshine, Inc.,"
1940 Sophomore Cabaret, Nov. 29
and 30.
The nimble-fingered xylophonist is
but one attraction of the League Fair.
From the ballroom dancers may
promenade along the "boardwalk"
where Ann Arbor merchants are
sponsoring a variety of booths and
exhibits. Fashions, novelties, sou-
venirs, radios, records, flowers, three-
minute photographs; all these will
be part of a display to turn the sec-
ond floor of the League into a Flor-
ida resort.
To Hake Cuban Trip
"Sloppy Joe's" in the second floor
dining room is planned for a side
trip to Cuba. Jane Connell and Bob
Schedd will offer "La Conga," and
wandering minstrels stroll bet'ween
tables, as "Cuban" waitresses take
orders for refreshments.
"Cracker Madness," a skit, will
combine with song and dance chor-
uses for a show to be given in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre both
nights. Among the original songs
which the show will feature are "The
Censor Song," "It's All Over Now,"
"Blue Book Blues" and "Sunshine,
Inc." Although it is included in the
cost of the evening dance tickets,
those who wish to attend the show,
alone will have an opportunity to
bray tickets at a lower price.
"Date Bureau" Is Established
A Date Bureau system is being es-
tablished for those who desire to use
the Sophomore Cabaret as an oppor-
tunity to make new contacts. It will
be conducted on the same system as
for Freshman project last year, with
tables in the League and Union for
applications between Nov. 22 and 29.
Tickets will be placed for sale at
all living quarters and at the Union
beginning Nov. 18. The price, $1:50
per couple, includes dancing, all ex-
hibits, and the show.
Sophomore Cabaret is managed
and executed by sophomore women
as a classdproject, but ticket sales
and attendance is not limited to
anyone class or college in the Uni-

If Roosevelt can win the presidential election and if Evashevski can
win the prediction contest in the football poll that the so-called sports staff
sponsors, then we of the social staff feel it is our duty not to break the tradi-
tion and so will maintain our prestige with revealing our election results of,
the past A. A. week-end.
For the smoothest affair of the week we gave the vote to the INTER-
FRATERNITY BALL held Fridee nite at the Union. It was simply swelegant
with Helena Hansen, Dick Schoel, Hazel Burgess, Bill Rockwell, Louise
Keatley, Bill Gram, Judy Miklosh and Roland Miller adding force to the
campaign of the fraternity boys to put the thing across. Sally Loughead
got our vote of the best-dressed in her blue satin affair which pleased her
committee-man date, Paul Cosper. June Bender, Stan
Allen, Sally Laux, Bill Erwin, Frances Gray and Jack
Strait were among those we saw skipping out at inter-
mission. No, we didn't say WHERE they were going.
Harriet Vicary and Jean Goudy were with Tom Dal-
rymple and Joe Foote when they waved goo-bye to us.
League Dance Most Fun ...
For the most fun the LEAGUE DANCE won our
majority election vote with Frannie Freeder, Earl Ar-
kiss, Eleanor Maliche, Johnnie McCann, Cheryl David-
son and Ed Whalen being very much in evidence. Oh,
yes, we had the Hahvard influence when last year
Michigan men, Sam Grant and Mary Spiegel, vacated
their New Eastern hunting ground for old interests,
Arlene Lazansky and Sonny Forman. Crossing to the
7-11 CLUB for a coke, chatted with last year's ed Ann
Vicary and Bob Mercer, and then closed down our poll
for the eve.
Continuing our terribly important social election
poll Satdee after covering the ALPHA CHI OMEGA
pledge formal, we gave it the vote of the most congenial dance of the nite.
We noticed Gertrude Clubb, Carl Reid, Pat Lowe, Pete Gossard, Millie Rad-
ford. Bill Kinsell, and Barb McLaughlin with Dick Gauthier. 'Twas very
nice. The A. E. PHI'S grabbed the decision of the craziest party with their
turnabout celebration. Golly, the costumes were weird, tho. Elaine Fischer
was real cute as the sleek-haired waiter with date Irv Zeiger. Jimmy W7
was a howl as the flapper age collitch gal and Adele Neiman got quite a
kick out of him. Harriet Baker and Oscar Fefferman reversed the situation
in each other's clothes as did Hazel Taylor and Al Ureles. That vote was
easily decided upon.
Union. Was Popular ihide-Out .. .
Most popular hide-out in terms of population was the UNION with
Frances Henderson, Ford Kennedy, Olive Beebe, Doug Gould, Helen Haig
and Gerry Murphy spotted among the crowd in our elec- s
tion survey. Marta Travis, Bob May, Helen Beach, Joe
Lake, Esther Counts, Don Rust, Ginny Apple and Lauren
Wicks ignored the results of the afternoon game and
proved happy. The MOSHER nickelodeon dance we chose
as the most informal function with Ginny Golden, Si
Spelman, Rhoda Miller and Mel Lubar being friendly in
it all. Almost forgot to mention that Jane Hunt, Betty
Peat, Marion Schaeffer and Ardis Watson deserted local
talent to show up at the UNION with four Pitt men.
DELTA GAMMA's pledge formal merited the stu-
pendous vote with its wonderful music obviously being
enjoyed by Mary June Hastreiter, Charlie Fiske, Willie
Troutwine, Bill Harnist, Peggy Reid and Tom Heenahan.
The A. O. PI's had the cosiest party of the eve, or so we
voted 'nyhow, with Jean Denton, Frankie O'Brien, Mary
Jean Cunningham and Bill Furniss all sitting together in
a confab about Ann Aharmon U. BETA KAPPA RHO, the
new unit of Assembly, was rewarded with the plaque en-
titling them to go down in the annals of the history of last week-end as
giving the snappiest affair with Fern Rice, Laurel Jones, Lenny Tolmach,
Ed Britton and Sarajean Hauke all frisking about.
Well, lads and lassies, these are our reports and results of the Women's
Electoral College as written by ye correspondent. There were no runners-up
and this campaign platform was swept in on a breeze of wind.

Fashion School
Offers Five
Senior Women Will Be Eligible'
For Training At Tobe-Coburn;
Scholarship Is Valued At $700
Tobe-Coburn School for Fashion
Careers, Rockefeller Center, N. Y., is
again offering five fashion fellow-
ships to members of this year's senior
class. Each fellowship covers a year s
tuition of $700 in the School. Only
one will be awarded in any college
or university.
"Winners of last year's awards are
already outstanding in this year's
student group," said Julia Coburn,
President of the Tobe-Coburn School,!
in making the announcement. "Uni-
,versity of Indiana, Oberlin, Welles-
ley, University of Toledo,"and Univer-.
sity of Colorado are now represented
in the School by last year's winners.
"The value of specialized training
is indicated by the progress our
graduates are making. In depart-
ment store advertising, merchandis-
ing, styling, and fashion coordination
they are stepping up the ladder.
Eighty percent of last year's class
had positions waiting for them when
they graduated, and we are constant-
ly receiving requests for our grad-
uates, that we are unable to fill,"
she continued.
Women members of the senior
class who wish to apply for one of
the Fashion Fellowships must mail
registration blanks and answers to
the first test questions to the school
on or before December 10. One more
set of test questions and a research
project will complete the work for
the awards. Announcement of the
awards will be made April 25.

The winner will not only gain
prestige, but he'll also be wealthy
to the extent of $100. Which is
wealthy, on this campus. Scripts
should be submitted to the office of
Miss McCormick in the League.
There have been a number of
submissions already, Miss Silver said.
However, there is still time for those
whose scripts are being polished up
to complete them and hand them in.
Typical of JGP, and especially typ-
ical of forms of amusement during
times of stress, the submitted scripts
will probably all emphasize the light-
er side of life, with an eye to work-
ing in songs and dances.

Hobby-Lobby Skills
Include Stenciling,
Weaving And Printing
Three times a week, handicraft en-
thusiasts meet at the little field house
at Palmer Field to work on their
favorite knick-knacks, and to gath-
er experience in new skills.
Sponsored by the Outdoor Club,
Hobby Lobby carries on from 3:15
p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, with Eliza-
beth Mahlman, '43, in charge,
Wednesday, with Flora Hannahs, '44,

at present are stenciling Christmas
cards, weaving hot-pad holders, (at
the cost of two cents a piece!), do-
ing all sorts of leather work, and
potato-block printing. The last men-
tioned resembles linoleum printing,
while it costs less and requires less
equipment to be carried on.
The Lobby welcomes all women
students to its regular session.

All women, except, freshmen, may

"If England should collapse, it is
certain that Hitler's war against dem-
ocracy will turn next on the United
States," declared Archduke Felix of
Austria, earnestly high-lighting his
views on today's crisis, during a brief
interview after his lecture last night.
Hitler, he holds, is vitally afraid of
democracy, and the United States
would be the last main stronghold of
this force dangerous to Naziism. We
are doing exactly right in speeding up
our defense program, which needn't
bring us any nearer to war, but should
merely serve the function of demon-
strating an impenetrable front.
Because England is the last barrier
between us and active Nazi invasion,
we must do everything in our power
to keep her a strong barrier, he said.
This means that we should send her
as much aid in the way of supplies,
machines and economic support as
we possibly can. Qur men won't need
to go - England doesn't need them.
Running in an undercurrent under

his lecture was his firm belief in
democracy - his respect for the dem-
ocratic countries, and an unshakable
conviction that eventually democracy
will win out. When questioned as to
the source of this concept of the de-
sirability of democracy, he said that
he has. always felt it. He went' on to
explain that to him democracy is not
a political form, but a way of think-
ing and acting. To him democracy
means freedom of the people to ex-
press the things they think and be-
lieve, whether under a king or any
other type of ruler.
