atives of the Assembly Board Wed-
nesday through Friday, Jan. 22 to 24,
in the Kalamazoo Room of the
League, Miss Walpole added. The in-

the Leaguc house, group dormitories,
Ann Arbor Independents and Beta.
Freshmen May Petition
At their meeting last week, the
Board representativesdagreed that
freshmen will be allowed to petition,
if they are positive that they will be
eligible next semester. Otherwise,'
the customary ruling regarding pe-
tioning will be in effect.
The Assembly Ball. is sponsored
each year by the independent women
on campus and any non-affiliated
woman may petition for a job on
the central committee. It is not nec-
essary, Miss Walpole said, but would
be a valuable experience to be in-
terviewed, even though not petition-
ing for a central committee position.
Three Co-heads Listed
Chairmanships for the dance in-
clude three co-heads. They are gen-
eral chairman, who also is head of
the music committee, assistant gen-
eral chairman, also in charge of mer-
its, co-chairmen of publicity, tickets,
and decoration, finance head, and
chairman of a committee for patrons
,,Miss Walpole has asked that all
applicants state their ideas fully and
carefully on the petition blank before
it is handed in, so that the merits
of each applicant can be weighed
carefully and the best possible com-
mittee chosen. Any independent who
wants to work, must petition even
though she does not want a central

Opportunity Knocks Again
The response was most disheart-

for positions that Assembly was forced
to turn over the direction of the pro-'

project of the year starts tomorrow.
You can read about the opportunities
offered on the Assemby Ball Conm-

you're at all interested in seeing one
of the nicest campus projects achieve
a deserved success, I urge you most
wholeheartedly to petition.

Are You A Cynic?
Perhaps you've never been encour-

activities. Perhaps your world-weary
roommate or your equally world-
weary landlady has inculcated the
attitude of cynicism in you. These
are conditioning factors that dampen
the spirit of anyone interested in
rervice to the campus, as well as fun
for the individual. But please, please,
don't let them gyp you out of half
the fun of your college life.
Assembly is your organization. It
was established and is being main-
tained in your interest. It needs your
help to continue.

EDITH LEVEENE, 40

Mrs. Dora Leveene of Mount Ver-
non, New York, has announced the
engagement of her daughter, Edith,
'41, to George Nadler, '41, son of Mrs.
Rose Pohly and Mr. Charles Nadler.
The announcement was also made
known at an open house held New

Mr. and Mrs. Eric Ferguson of Ann

One of the perennial questions is
again about to come forth with the
changing of semesters and in some
cases the changing of rooms. "What

With a little ingenuity though, this
problem can be easily solved. A
clever idea is to visit a furniture store
and purchase a small set of inex-
pensive drawers which will stand
about three feet from the floor. There
are usually four drawersin such a
piece. While there, select a small
stool if your budget will take it. This
can be had in the unfinished wood
for much less and it is a simple mat-
ter to stain it yourself. A round
mirror hung from the wall and a
dresser scarf is all that is needed to
complete the idea. Behold, you not
only have the extra drawer space
but a smart dressing table besides.
As mentioned it is not necessary to
buy the stool. A good sturdy box
covered with a bright material will
serve the purpose just as well.
Another novel idea, if you lack
closet space and have ample room is
to buy a collapsible closet. This
closet stands about six feet from the
floor and is about two feet wide.
Concert To Be Held
Classical pieces will be played at
the regular Union concert hour, from
4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. tomorrow on the
