Informal Student Discussion.
Group Will Meet Wednesday
In League Kalamazoo Room
"A new step towards language de-
velopment on campus," was the de-
claration that Ruth L. Wendt, coun-
selor of foreign languages in dormi-
tories, made in describing the series
of French teas for students, the sec-
ond of which will be held Wednesday
in the League.
The purpose of the teas is to in-
crease the use and knowledge of
French in a conversational informal
group, said Mrs. Wendt, who is in
charge of arrangements for the teas.
At the last tea which was held earlier
this month, 55 men and women gath-
ered in the Kalamazoo Room of the
League and spoke only French, she
Many 'Brushing Up' OnLang e
Many of the students attending
the afternoon social were merely
brushing up on their knowledge of the
language and were not taking current
courses, Mrs. Wendt pointed out.
Most interesting aspect of the
group at the informal mixer, Mrs.
Wendt thought, was that those at-
tending constituted an international
group. Students were represented
from almost every country and all
contributed their ideas in French,
Mrs. Wendt stated.
Student Committee In Charge
Student committees took charge of
introductions. Mimi Sieg, '44, and
Burn Smith, Grad., assisted Mrs.
Wendt in preparations for the first
tea and will again serve on the com-
mittee for the Wednesday French
Attendance at the teas is by invita-
tion only, informed Mrs. Wendt, and
those desiring to be invited may con-
tact her at Stockwell Hall or call the
other two chairmen before Tuesday.
For refreshments at the tea a charge
of 10 cents will be made, said Mrs.
To End This Week
The volleyball tournament comes
to a climax this week as the last con-
testants in the A and B tournaments
fight to decide which teams are to
go to the finals.
In B tournament, Mosher and Del-
ta Delta Delta will play off the final
match. Alpha Omicron Pi will play
the winner of the Newberry-Alpha
Delta Pi match to decide which team
is on top in the A tournament.
Date Dress Is Tailored
Fitted waistine, squar e shoulders,
and one knife pleat emphasize they
tailored suit effect of this black
date dress. Interesting notes are
its velveteen collar and change of
direction in the neck opening.

"College students know their tem-
po and are the best dancers," de-
clared orchestra leader Red Norvo,
when interviewed on the sidelines of
sophomore Cabaret in the League
His fourth time playing for Ann
Arbor audiences, the genial maestro
was enthusiastic in his praise of the
campus and thinks that the coeds
are "swell." Norvo is not one to
change his mind, moreover, and after
being informed about the "four out
of five" slogan asserted that "Michi-
gan women are simply tops as com-
)ared with other campuses."
Norvo, like other popular band
leaders, is worried about the con-
tract dispute in radio between the
American Society of Composers, Au-
thors and Publishers (ASCAP) and
the newly-formed Broadcast Music
Hopes For Strike Settlement
"I don't know who will win out,"
he said, "but I do hope that it will
be settled in a hurry for it is putting
many writers and musicians out of
work.". Taking on a more serious air
with the discussion of the controversy.
Norvo revealed that he has been no-
tified that he must play -only BMI
songs on his radio programs after
"If I don't abide by this notifica-
tion, I won't be allowed to continue
broadcasting," he answered to my
question as to the enforcement policy.
Norvo pointed out that the qualtiy of
the BMI material has been poor. "All
the famous composers whose songs
rule the popular air waves are signed
with ASCAP, and the BMI has only

WINTER IS HERE and winter sports are under way! You don't have to
be a Sonja Henie or an Olympics skier to have fun, but even the rankest
amateur can look the part. On the ice you'll wear gay reds and white,
because warm colors are as important as warm materials. For skiing and gen-
eral frollicking in the snow, keep warm and attractive in new gabardine ski
pants with a bright hooded jacket or a blazing plaid shirt. Add a pair of cozy
mittens and you're ready for anything the weatherman has to offer.
