news of the dorms


So there'll be plenty of stuff hap-
pening this week-end, teas, parties,
dances, carol sings and -can you
think of anything else? - oh yes,
dinners, too, we guess.
Yup, the first item we have is a
dinner, Jordan, it says, donned
formal attire for its faculty din-
ner last night. The Christmas
theme, of course, was predominant
in the decorations. The new Jor-
dan orchestra played, too, they
say. All right, that wasn't over
the weekend, but we had to men-
tion it.
Both the East and West Quads are
having Christmas dances tomorrow,
not to mention Betsy Barbour's for-
mal, and probably a half dozen more.
More on this tomorrow.
And here and now let us make a
New Year's resolution in advance.
We're going to get the news from
Fletcher Hall, even if we have tot
walk way down there every day.
We'll try and contact the person
in charge of propaganda dissemn-
ination. Of course, if he wants to
make it. easier he can contact us.
Lachenbruch is the name .. .
And we've heard enough about a
certain animal, genus Leporidae, sub-
order Duplicidentata, species rabbit,
which has been visiting Adelia Chee-
ver, to make her printworthy. Her
name is Hortense the Hare and she's
a thief. Aren't girls cute? .
Bob McNeil is a genius. He's
the fellow who's been drawing some
of the very clever cartoons that
make the East Quad's weekly, "The

East Wind", what it is today. His
sketches characterize little facets
of collegiate life picked up around
the halls of the E. Q. For instance,
he has a picture of the fellow who
won 15 beers by having the lowest
bluebook on the third floor of
Greene House.
Sally Sessions; '44, is now celebrity
number one in Jordan Hall. Why? -. -
She's University Women's Tennis
Champ after winning the Fall Tennis
Singles Crown the other day ...
The walls of the East Quad will
resound with that good old Christ-
mas spirit Sunday when the occu-
pants of that dorm will convene in
the Main Lounge for a carol sing,
to be followed by a buffet supper.
If we ramble on any more they'll
have to put us on the editorial page
. so adieu, and adieu mean yieu . .
. (corny, isn't it?) . .

ever taken.

"Alla en el Rancho Grande," the

made in Mexico City and one which
has won the acclaim of critics in
this country, will be shown by La So-,
ciedad Hispanica at 8:15 p.m. Mon-
day in the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
The picture stars the well-known,
Mexican actor, Tito Guizar, support-
ed by Esther Fernandez. English titles;
will enable the student who has no
knowledge of Spanish to follow the
dialogue without difficulty.
"Alla en el Rancho Grande" (Out,
on the Big Ranch) has been brought
back again and again to Mexican the-
atres by popular demand. It is a
musical romance with a setting on a
hacienda in old Mexico.
Musical score is arranged from na-
tive folk tunes by Lorenzo Barcelata.
The picture was awarded the gold
medal from the 16th International
Film Art Exposition at Venice, Italy,
in September, 1938.
All seats to the production must be
reserved either by phone or by per-
son at the Lydia Mendelssohn box
office, which will open on Dec. 14.

Added Strain
On Recreation
Centers Seen
Added pressure will be placed upon
recreation and leisure time agencies,
both private and public, in sections
of the country near camps training
draftees for national defense, Ray
Johns, national secretary and field
service manager for the YMCA who
is here as adviser to Ann Arbor agen-
cies, said in an interview.
Increased employment in areas en-
gaged in defense industries has
caused a migration of young people
to these centers. This has created
new recreation as well as housing
problems for youth living away from
home. Ann Arbor as part of the De-
troit metropolitan area will be af-
fected in some measure by this trend,
he predicted.
Added employment in defense in-
dustries and military service will les-
sen the unemployment, problem for
out-of-school youth but will not solve
it, Mr. Johns commented.
Another definite trend in social
service work is the increasjng partici-
pation in civic educational programs.
Youth has taken part wisely in for-
ums and educational activities which
have presented current social and
economic problems and the necessity
of civic responsibility, the youth di-
rector maintained.

Men's Council
History, Duties
Are Explained

Newly acquired by the Michigan
Historical Collections are two groups
of papers, dealing with the lives of
Roy D. Chapin, '01E, one-time pres-
ident of Hudson Motor Car Co., and
James O. Murfin, for many years a
regent of the University.
The Chapin Papers is one of the
largest collections donated to the
University. It is chiefly composed
of correspondence, including his let-
ters as president of Hudson Motors,
as member of numerous committees
working for good roads, as chairman
of the Highway TransportsCommittee
of the Council for National Defense
during the World War and as Secre-
tary of Commerce in 1932-33 under
President Hoover.
The leters of Regent James O. Mur-
fin, who died July 11, 1940, should
prove to be of significance for recent
University history, according to Prof.
Lewis G. Vander Velde, director of
the Collections. Mr. Murfin was
graduated from the University in

1895 and the Law School in 1896.
He received an honorary LLD. in
Throughout his life he was active in
the promotion of athletics at the Uni-
versity. His papers reflect his work
as a member of the Athletic Board of
Control from 1910 to 1917 and as
regent of the University from 1918
to 1937. In recognition for his ser-
vices to the University, Murfin Gate,
between Allen-Rumsey House and the
south wing of the Union addition,
on Madison Avenue, was dedicated
to him.
The Michigan Historical Collec-
tions which is located in Rooms
156-164 of the Rackham Building,
was organized five years ago under
the direction of Prof. Vander Velde.
Today its holdings include civil, rec-
ords; collections of personal papers;
boobs, pamphlets and newspapers
published in the state, and records
and minutes of alltypes of organ-
