Vacation Fun
Ann Arbortes And 'Marooned'
Students Are Invited To Hear
Bill Sawyer At Christmas Party
Vacationers have been invited to
start off the first of their 16 days
with a ban and a tune at the All-
Ann-Arbor Christmas Party to be
held from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Fri-
day,in the Union Ballroom.
Bill Sawyer and his orchestra will
make music for the dance which will
be informal. Sawyer has promised
everyone that all three of his soloists,
'"Big John," lovely Gwen Cooper and
Bob Holland will be there.
Ann Arbor residents and students
"marooned" for over vacation have
been especially invited to the dance.
For this one occasion, the Union has
put aside the membership require-
ments, so that no one need show
his membership card in order to
buy a ticket. The price of the tickets
has been set at X1.25.
Patrons and patronesses who have
been invited to chaperon the dance
are Prof. and Mrs. Bennet Weaver,
Ir. and Mrs. George R. Moore, Mr.
and Mrs. Clifton Day, Mr. and Mrs.-
Frederic Matthaei, Mr. and Mrs.
Leneord Gregory, Mr. and Mrs. Don-
ald Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Harold
Barnum and Mr. and Mrs. J. Von
Sponsors of this Christmas party,
the staff of the Union, have an-
nounced that its purpose is to bring
the music of Bill Sawyer's orchestra
to the'people of Ann Arbor and vicin-
ity, who have before now only had
the opportunity of listening to it
over the air lanes and who, because
of the lack of membership cards,
have been unable to dance to it.

Dresses that breathe of "Winter 1940-41" have elbow sleeves, medi-
um full skirts and collarless necklines. Little individualities are needed
for such thoroughly adopted styles. Scalloped self-patterns over the
entire skirt that emphasize its folds can be reflected in scalloped pockets.

Includes Six Women
A fairly representative cross-sec-
tion of the various instruments in
the orchestra is found among the 21
pieces that were selected for audi-
tions. Six women were among those
interviewed. Last year three musi-
cians represented Michigan at the
Center, among them Thor Johnson,
director of the University orchestra.
Scholarships to the Center should
prove very valuable to the student,
according to Mr. Johnson.
Those students who were inter-
viewed were Italo Frajola, Grad.,
S.M.; Vladimir Lukashuk, '42SM;
Thomas Wheatley, '42SM; Edward
Ormond, '42SM; Margery Mellott,
'43SM; Martha McCrory, '41M; Ma-

ley Howe, '44SM; Alfred Burt, '42SM;
John Robbins, '42SM; Paul Bryan,
'41SM; and John Houdek.
Receives Scholarship
Mr. Johnson, through Serge Kous-
sevitzky, conductor of the Boston
Symphony Orchestra, received the
Frank Huntington Beebe scholarship
fund in 1937. Koussevitzky had heard
Mr. Johnson's famous Little Sym-
phony Orchestra, and felt that a
chance to travel and study abroad
would be enriching experience for

when they took a free ride at the op-
ening of the Ypsilanti airport. Since
then they have taken extensive tripsf
all over the country, and viewed in
a few hours the sights most travelersl
see only after days of motoring.
For instance, they've flown to-
gether to the Pacific Coast five times.
They've explored the historical
grounds ofuthetEast, and on one
fourth of July they followed by air
the same road which Paul Revere,
sped over on his galloping horse froml
Lexington to Concord back in 1776.
In winter they escape the bitter cold

Was President of "Ninety-Niners"
Nevertheless 20 years of connubial
companionship attest to the success
of her own ability to combine two
distinct features of her life. From
1935 to 1937 she served as national
president of the "Ninety-Niners,"
foremost woman pilot's organization
in the country. She has logged some
1,170 hours in the air, starting from
her second time up, which was her
first lesson.-
Her most recent adventure is
ground instruction. In collaboration
with the Civilian Pilot Training Corps
she teaches primary and secondary
student pilots here and at Ypsilanti.

Sororities To Hold
Christmas Parties
Today, Tomorrow
To offset this week's bluebooks and
studies ,the sororities have planned
gay Christmas parties.
Alpha Phi will have a Christmas
dinner today at which the others
of the collegiate chapter, the alum-
nae, and patronesses will present a
gift to the house. Tomorrow night,
the chapter will have its big Chr"ist-
mas party. *Continuing a tradition
of many years, "Steve," jovial bus
driver on the bus route that passes
the Alpha Phi door, will don Santa
Claus attire and distribute presents.
Gamma Phi Beta and Kappa Del-
ta will hold their Christmas parties
today and tomorrow nights respect-
ively. They will send gifts to the chil-
dren at University Hospital.

Many Short Trips Taken

planes in her spare time might


"Although there is a great deluge
of young ,designers popping up every-
where, the talented ones will survive
and succeed; andthat is true of what-
ever work is attempted in life,"
answered Ruth LeBron, publicity
manager of an exclusive New York
retail clothing house, \to a question on
career opportunities awaiting the lit-
erally designing woman at Michigan.
Miss LeBron said that, today, as
always, it is difficult to say how one
may proceed to break into the field
of fashion. "Fashion design schools
usually have scholarships which are
an entering wedge into business," she
recommended as one way of finding
the path leading to the gates of
'achievement in design.
Skethk ing' Taleit ValuabIle
"Designers who are capable of
sketching often use this as a first
step by obtaining a job as a sketch-
er in a designing house," was another
illustration that she offered in meth-
ods "to break in." "These women
usually work right with the designers
and follow through all steps in the
making of each original," she fur-
ther explained.
Miss LeBron pointed out another
step which she said to be the hardest
of all-to get a job as a sewer or
finisher in a designer's workroom
and to work "up the ladder."
Contests Are Important
"There are some agencies," Miss Le-}
JGP Compositions
Will Be Recorded
As an added incentive to all youth-
ful composers, the central commit-
tee of JGP has agreed to record the
best songs'used in the annual musi-
cal comedy.
Anyone who wishes to submit mu-
sic for the play, which will be pre-
sented next semester and is entitled
"Jumping Jupiter," may obtain syn-
opses of the script from Phyllis Wat-
ers. Would-be composers who lack
technical musical knowledge but who
have ideas for songs are urged to
persuade a musician to write the
number down for them.
Vacation Sports Fun
Is Continued Herej
Christmas is the time when sports
aren't crowded into "spare moments;"
they're the main entertainment for
the holiday season.

Bron revealed, "that employ young
designers to make sketches of their
own ideas in fashions for the coming
season. Many full-fledged designers

Another path on the success road
she listed were the opportunities the
leading fashion magazines frequently
offer. Miss LeBron stressed the neces-
sity of taking advantage of contests
open to the college woman in de-
signing, for business keeps a sharp
eye on the winners in these com-
petitions, she feels.
