'Coffin Capers'
To Preview
Union Opera
New Songs Will Be Featured
By Chandler Pinney; Bill Sawyer
And Orchestra To Furnish Music
Chan Pinney, '41E, star of the 1941
Union Opera, will be featured at
"Coffin Capers," the annual Congres-
sional Fling, to be held from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m., tomorrow in the ballroom
of the Union.
Pinney, previewing two of the
songs from "Take A Number", will
sing "Your Page In My Memories"
by Ken Summerfelt, Grad., and "A
Dream and I Went Walking", by
Charles Bowen, '41, and Gordon
Hardy, '41SM. A dance team will
perform a waltz and a rhumba, and
the program for the evening will
be completed with incidental execu-
"A Ghoul's paradise", was the way
Rigor Mortis, master of ceremonies,
termed the decor for the dance. Pic-
turesque gravestones and luminous
Pearly Gates will add cheer to what
would otherwise be, according to
Mortis, a gloomy evening. Eerie
tapers will light up the pessimistic
countenances of the ghastly guests.
The coffin, originally planned to
be placed in the center of the floor,
will probably have to be abandoned
due to an unforeseen circumstance
in connection with a state law. It
seems, Mortis declared, shedding
ghoulish tears, that it is illegal to
place anyone who is not thoroughly
dead in a coffin. However, Mortis
said, brightening, if anyone knows of
a dead body lying around that no
one wants anymore, Congress will be
glad to take it off his hands and
supply it with a fitting coffin.
Bill Sawyer's orchestra, which will
play for the dance, an informal,
open affair, will be broadcast over
Tickets, at $1.25 a couple, will re-
main on sale today and tomorrow
at the Wolverine desk, Wahr's book-

David Panar, '41E, are in charge of
the ticket sale.

poor or troublesome classwork. Thus
efforts are being made to avoid these
blights to effective examination study
by preparing all who wish help in any
specific subject for examination time
through the League tutorial system.
Women are advised by chairman
of the tutorial committee, Margaret
Hubbard, '41 that tutoring is best done
now-before it is too late, since tutors
will not be available before finals time.
About 40 women have been tutored
through the system, so far, she stated,
and very favorable results have been
reported. Tutors are available in all
freshmen and beginning courses and
in many advanced courses as well.
Most tutoring, Miss Hubbard fur-
ther stated, has been in chemistry,
mathematics, geology and French.
She added that there is great demand
for chemistry tutors and that any
women wishing to assist others in
these subjects may leave a note in her
League mailbox, or call Miss Mc-
Cormick's, office in the League.
Women wishing to be tutored may
reach committee members the same
way, since office hours will no longer
be held. All tutoring is done in the
League, and a fee of 25 cents an
hour is paid to the tutors.
Alpha Omicron Pi announces the
recent pledging of Margaret Cor-
nelius, '41, of New York.
