It isn't like the Minnesota game-
at the Union Formal you can sit with
your friends. By the new double-stub
method, your ticket is your assurance
that you will be able to dine and
dance with members of your own par-
ticular group, Ed Holmberg, '43, res-
ervations chairman, announed yes-
According to this year's plan, table
-eservations are made at the time
the ticket is obtained. The individ-
ual's name and the name of his party
are filled out on each of the two
stubs. One stub is turned in at the
time of purchase and the other is
presented at the door upon arrival at
the dance. Thus, undesirable delay is
avoided at the entrance to the dance
Deadline Is Oct. 29
Students who wish to buy tickets
now but are not yet certain with what
group they wish to sit, may omit the
name of their group on ,each stub.
Then when definite plans have been
made, table reservations may be com-
pleted by calling Holmberg or the
travel desk in the Union.
All reservations must be made by
Wednesday, Oct. 29, Holmberg said,
because after this time, although
tickets will still be available, the Ex-
cutive Council can not guarantee
"lf 'ctoiy group reservations.

the seventh year that this tradition
and annual affair has been observed.
Tickets are now on sale at the
Union travel desk or may be secured
from any member of the Council.
Ticket sales will be limited to 250.
Nearest Drug Store
Holds Best Soution
For Beauty Problem
"Mirror, mirror, upon the wall, who
is the fairest of them all?" Today
the answer would be, "The girl who
is willing to spend her bottom dollar
for a new lipstick."
This month's allowance has al-
ready been spent, but, the first of
next month, how about tripping
down tg the nearest drug store and
purchasing some of Hollywood's pet
secret, pancake make-up? It is guar-
anteed to give you a smooth complex-
Or, if you are already an ardent fan
of this miraculous concoction, per-
haps you would be interested in an-
other treat. A nail polish manufac-
turer has produced a set consisting
of lipstick, cheek rouge, and the nail
polish-all matched!' These sets
come in such delightful shades as
Cherry Coke, Hot Dog and, for for-
mal evenings, Black Mask. And they
really match!
Juniors Will Meet
There will be a mass meeting of
all junior women interested in
working on the 1942 Junior Girls'
Play at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in the
ballroom of the League, Mary Lou

The good old college custom of Going Out Of Town To Get Drenched
In Somebody Else's Stadium was observed in all its expensive pageantry
(Stop us if this sickens you by being too reminiscent of DeMille) this last
weekend by quite a mess of local stoodents. The whole thing took place at
Evanston, and we won't give the rest of you headaches-(Those who took
the trek have already got 'em)-with the ghastly details of how gay every-
thing and everybody was, but we have a few little tidbits here which we feel
you might enjoy.
One of the most outstanding groups among the socialites who attended
(at least that's what they told us) included Webb Cook, Roger Kelley,
Woody Standish, Bill Schomburg, Jim Collins, Dave Lynch, Charley Braz-
nell, Dan Huyett, Hal Wood, and Monk Moore. Now, we're not saying that
the next item has anything to do with this noble little band of popular Mich-
iganites-heaven forbid that we should put suspicion's ugly shadow on any-
one-but there is a substantial rumor about that one
Cr of the gangs who went, didn't do so well with the
famed Northwestern dolls. In fact, the only things
C I) resembling females whom the boys could talk into
taking a chance on them for an evening were a bunch
of high school not-so-cuties.
An Opinion On N.W.'s Coeds -
Heaven forbid, also, that we should infer there is
b_ -anything of the sour grapes in the remark of one of
the proud swains, who shall remain nameless, because he is a Daily person-
ality ("and it shall be the policy of this paper not to unduly publicize them
as work on it"-Axiom 66 from Editorial Policy). He said, quote-and with
a notable lack of effectiveness-Those Northwestern coeds aren't what
they're supposed to be, unquote. And the fact that he didn't get close enough
to one to find out did not dull the sharp, disparaging potency of his remark.
Since this is supposed to be a social column, and since social columns
are supposed to contain a certain number of names once in a while (much
as it pains us) and since we efn't see anything less important about people,
just.because they didn't happen to be able to argue their parents into giving
them a few of the long green, we don't seen any reason for not mentioning
a few of the persons who didn't go to the game. Among them were Phyl
Banbrook, Vi Miller, Harry Kelsey, ( innie Frey, tob Wallace, Marg Hulbert,
Mary Sellon, Bob Brines, Marianne Taylor, Jane Cayia, Janet Taylor and
Dick Schell. Boy, that's padding the old copy out, if we ever saw it padded.
The Wild 7-11 Club. .
With everyone-well, a couple of dozen or so-out of town for the game,
things were slightly on the morgue side, here in Ann Arbor. To -show you
how quiet it was, just about the rowdiest place in town on last Friday and
Saturday nights was the 7-11 Club at the League. (Don't worry, Miss Mack;
everyone knows we're only kidding!) We didn't find
whether they were dancing or playing bridge or
studying-( Just a few in the giant list of things
which we understand one can do there) but anyway,
Betty Baille and Dick Shirley, Peg Brown and Frank
McCarthy, Teddy Plaisted and Rudy Sengel, and
Peggy Ihling and Ken Nelson were all occupying
themselves with one or 'many of the list.
It is not the custom of this department, if we
may dignify this trash by calling it a department, to /
hash over a particular social event before it has occurred. But a news item
in today's Daily forces us to offer an opinion as to Avhat next weekend will
be like. Already people are having hysterics and dropping off like flies-and
that's just standing in line to get the tickets. Just let your imagination wan-
der a moment in bits of idle fantasy on the subjec of what the game scene
will be. See what we mean? We thought you would. From where we're sit-
ting, the view presents horrible massacres as far as the eye can reach-
women and children screaming-and falling bodies all over the place.
So, the most effective advice we can offer you this week, is to practice
your Eliza-Crossing-The-Ice Act so that when you step out of the Stadium
next Saturday you can, with agility and that coveted casual look, step over
the corpses which will surround the place.
Well, they won't be corpses, but if you think we're speaking of prostrate
bodies in idle jest-then you've never been to a Homecoming game.
