Mimes Meets
Music Makers


n Union Today
Musicians, Lyric Writers Asked
To Submit Samples Of Work
For Committee Consideration

Musically-minded students, both
men and women, interested in work-
ing on the music committee for this
year's Mimes Union Opera, are urged
to drop in between 9:30 p.m. and 11
p.m. today in the Union, Gordon
Hardy, Grad., music chairman an-
Those who have composed music
and lyrics and who would like to
have them considered for the Opera
will hand them in at this time, Hardy
said, and if they are satisfactory, they
will be presented to the central com-
mittee for final approval later. While
today will not be the deadline for
music, Hardy said he hoped that
enough will be turned into permit
the committee to make the prelim-
inary selections immediately.
Plot Will Be Discussed
'he plot of the Mimes Opera will
be disclosed at this meeting so that
those who wish to write music or lyrics
will have a better idea concerning
just what is expected. Bob Adams,
Grad., director of the play, will also
be there to talk with the group.
Duties of the music committee en-
tails more than the composition of
music and lyrics, Hardy said, and
anyone wishing to work on the copy-
ing of music or as lyric writers are
more than -welcome to attend the
meeting. He stressed that both men
and women, regardless of their year
in school are eligible for work on the
The purpose of this meeting is to
give Hardy an idea of just how much
music there is for consideration now
and how much may be expected.

By Dean Lloyd
An outline of a defense program

Petites Pommes de Terree
We're writing this little classic from somewhere in the moorlands-
and praying as we write it that those little men-all of them Heathcliffs
won't return. If anyone doesn't quite know what we're talking about, let's
put it this way. If the Phi Psi boys up Wuthering Heights way will forget
they ever heard of Emily Bronte, so will we.
No doubt, by this time all you literary people are panting for your social
news, and now comes the item we've been waiting all fall to give you. Well,
last weekend, the Chi Omegas gave absolutely the smoothest, the best, the
most delightful, the mellowest dance we've ever attended-and no cracks
here, please, about how that last phrase cuts down the percentage. Boy,
oh boy, what a dance-and if you think this is any kind of a deliberate plug,
you're absolutely right.
The Lucky Ones s * .
However, some of the lucky kids who were privileged to attend this social
highlight of the season were Joey McGrath and Warren Westrate, Kit Up-
son and Chock Low, Nancy Bierworth and Buck Dawson, Dotty McDaniel
and Bob Wandell, Carol Forsythe and Harry Altman,
Joy Low and Lee Perry, and Phyl Gardiner and
Bruce Kleber. as
If you're interested in trivialities, the Union also
gave some little insignificant affair last weekend.
For names of some the dates, look in last Friday's

ing was over four weeks ago and because midsem-
esters are approaching rather speedily, we have an /
idea which we feel will greatly benefit all of our dispositions. Why not a
a good old rousing "Don't Smile Week"?
Aren't you sick of smiling faces and raucous laughter? Don't you feel
a hearty gag coming on when you see all the toothy grins around you and
hear the heart and soul in an empty laugh that booms out after some pro-
fessor's anemic pun?
Cut Out The Joy ...
Therefore, comrades, let us unite in a gigantic effort to cut out all this
foul joy about nothing in particular. We could form a sort of perverted Boy
Scout organization and, like our friends, the Alpha Phi Omegas, put up little

Bird's Nest Soup, Folk Dances
Give Michigan Dates Variety

Over half of the 50 girls we inter-
viewed on theirhmost original dates
were at loss for an answer. Averag-
ing two and three years of campus
dating, they could also average little
better than two or three varieties of
campus date.
"We always do the same old thing,"
they admited. "Movies, dances,
cokes, maybe a study date once in
a while." But the other 25 had
ideas that varied from eating. bird's
nest soup to feeding peanuts to the
campus squirrels.
Jane Utley, '43, who met the bird's
nest concoction on a Chinese restau-
rant date, has also provided variety
to some of the traditional dates. She
and her escort varied "taking a walk"
by punning through the graveyard.
They wandered among the markers
and tried to outdo each other in puns
on the names. "Going to a dance"
they gave a new flavor by attending
the Union Opera, Soph Prom, and--
two fraternity formals in the same
"For a dreamy date sit in the golf
course and watch the trains go by,"
offered by Mary-Jean Szysz, '24, "and

there are lots of active dates." She
gave for example the time she and
her date started playing baseball in
the streets with another couple, and
ended up with two complete teams.
The general opinion was that there
are far more facilities for the ath-
letically inclined than daters realize.
"The WAB folk dances are fun!"
said Jane Sargent, '42. Other sug-
gestions for the active were supper
horseback rides, date night ,at the
intramural building for mixed swim-
ming, bicycle hikes and roller skat-
ing at the rink.
"A different sort of double date is
badminton at Barbour Gym," sug-
gested Lorraine Judson, '43. It offers
a refreshing variety for the usual
ping-pong tournament.
Study dates usually end when the
library closes at 10 p.m., and the gen-
eral procedure is to dissolve it into
a lingering coke date and then dash
to the dormitory before the night
chaperon flashes the porch light.
Varieties of the coke aftermath were
offered by June Karker, '44.
"We like to splt a banana split,"
she said, "and sometimes we toast
