Law Course
To Be Given
Mortarboard To Sponsor Series
For Junior And Senior Women;
First Meeting To Be Tomorrow
A three-hour course in parliamen-
tary law, open to junior and senior
women will be sponsored by Mortar-
board in order to make available the
tvue of material necessary in conduct-
ing meetings both in and out of
Only a brief survey of the subject
will be made in the lectures, but a
syllabus containing an outline of the
important points and reference lists
will be given to the students.
The meetings will be held at 4 p.m.4
Thursdays, Nov. 28, Dec. 5 and Dec.
12 in the Grand Rapids Room of the

mentary law and has had wide ex-
perience in this field, will be speaker
for the first meeting.
The idea of having such a course
was first introduced at Denver Col-
lege where it was very successful. It
is very important 'that women have
an understanding of at least the
rudiments of parliamentary law, de-
clared Jean Maxted, '41, chairman of

lectures, because there are so many
self-governing organizations on cam-
pus and out of school.

Winkle, '41.

Sweet, Swing, Dreamy Tempos
Are Featured By Rising Band
Selected In All-Campus Vote
"The Cinderella man of swing mus-
ic," Bob Chester, has been contacted
to play at Soph Prom, which will be
held from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Dec. 13.
in the ballroom of the Union, Home
Swander, chairman of the music com-
mittee, announced yesterday.
Tickets for the dance may be pur-
chased from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. to-
day, tomorrow, or Friday in thelobby
of the Union. Theodore Sharp, chair-
man of the ticket committee, an-
nounced that sophomore identifica-
tion cards must be presented for the
tickets, which are $2.75.
The success story of Chester is one
of the most interesting of any of the
present day rising swing kings. Mr.
Chester attended the University of
Dayton, where he starred as pitcher
on the baseball team. Though he re-
ceived offers from the Detroit Tigers
and Boston Red Sox, music and the
tenor saxophone, for which he is so
well known, seemed more important
and he left baseball to follow his
Though heir to the fortune of Al-
bert Fisher, retired president of the
Fisher,Body Corporation and his step-
father, Chester has preferred to work
hard and achieve his own success. He
spent severalhyears with New York
bands and then organized his own
group. In 1935 he and his new band
were engaged at the Detroit Athletic
Club for eight months. From that
time on, he has climbed until now he
is one of the nation's top orchestras,
but he continues to be called the cin-
derella man of swing music.
Previous engagements of Bob Ches-
ter and his orchestra have been at
the Book-Cadillac Hotel, Detroit; the
New Yorker, New York; the Van
Cleve, Dayton, and the Adolphus, Dal-
Chester and his orchestra provide a
combination of all the tempos: sweet,
swing, and dreamy, and strive to
"make you wanna dance." The feat-
ure of the band is charming Betty
The band was selected in an all-
campus election which was held last
Tuesday when they received 726 votes
out of a possible 1,000, showing their
great popularity. Chester is a lead-
ing recorder at the present time and
has recently finished a summer at the
World's Fair.

In Winter Fun
Skiis, Toboggans May Be Rented
By Student Sport Enthusiasts
Are you wondering if the snow is
going to settle? Have you inspect-
ed those heavy woolens that should
see another season of slush? Did
you revel in yesterday's weather even
though it brought the curl down
from under your kerchief?
Then stop to remember that there
are facilities offered by the Women's
Athletic Association to help you en-
joy your snowy sports to the fullest.
Palmer Field has been the baby-pen
for many an enthusiastic skiing nov-
ice, as more and more' women are
realizing that the skiis rented at the
WAB are of the very best quality.
They are equipped with whole-foot-
harnesses, "Very carefully examined
by experts," Dr. Margaret E. Bell ap-
proved. Ski poles to make the snowy
slopes more manageable are also

boring, and each of your roommates
has a newly washed face, get together
in holding down a toboggan that sails
the hills with an invigorating dash.
These, too, may be rented at the Wo-
men's Athletic Building where mixed
groups are welcome to take out a to-
boggan for the evening's or after-
noon's entertainment.

Casual Wear
Is Suggested
In Classroom
School has been in session quite
a while, but still there are many
doubts as to what to wear to classes.
One of the many new style ver-
sions which can be counted as school
attire is the two piece corduroy suit.
It is colorful, and its trim tailoring
makes it suitable for class wear. The
owner of such an outfit has the added
advantage of wearing the skirt and
jacket separately with another sweat-
er or skirt. A matching cap. adds the
finishing touch.
The winter jumper has been listed
as a "must" for the classroom. Its
casualness is combined with smart-
ness so that if after class you have an
informal date you need never worry
that you aren't properly attired.
Jumper types are as variable as dif-
ferent kinds of sweaters, but the
most practical kind is the one with
the detachable jump top. This kind of
jumper top enables you to wear the
skirt separately with sweaters. Any
tailored blouse of silk, gabardine,
crepe, rayon, cotton or jersey can
be worn under the jumper. However,
all satin blouses are taboo for class-
room wear.
Sweaters are always the perennial
favorite for classroom clothes. Howev-
er, certain definite changes have been
made in styles and wools. Angora
sweaters are fast fading out of the
picture. This doesn't seem to be such
a bad idea for most coeds know that
it is a very dificult task to keep
this kind of a sweater in tip top con-
dition. Then, too, the angora sheds
so easily that the man sitting next
to you is very apt to look like a storm
of angora had been let fall from the
