Independent Women's Group
Is Headed By Jean Hubbard;
Emily Root Is Vice-President
Assembly-one of the first words
to greet the freshman woman's eye
as she arrives on the campus-is the
independent women's organhation at
the University. An executive board
of four, heads the entire group, aid-
ed and abetted by 14 other women
who represent on the board, the
League House residents, the Ann
Arbor Independents, each of the eight
dormitories and Beta Kappa Rho,
an organization for women students,
who are working in Ann Arbor.

sembly's work this year, as president,
and Emily Root, '42, will assist Miss
Hubbard in the office of vice-presi-
dent. Doris Cuthbert, '42, will offici-
ate as secretary, while Elzabeth Ann
Walker, will act as treasurer for the
coming year. The 14 other women
who go to make up the -Assembly

We don't know how it developed
into a rivalry-this feud between the
two projects; in fact, we're not even
sure that it is a rivalry. But it's cer-
tain that there is a degree of sparring
between the two. One year, JGP will
triumphantly claim to have sold the
most tickets to its epic; the next
year, Mimes will report to the gen-
eral public-with great superiority,
that its line of 16 beautiful Co-eds
(count 'em, 16!) did much more dif-
ficult steps in its routine than did
JGP's chorus.
The Union Opera has been a tra-
dition at Michigan ever since 'way
back when-well, when people dis-
covered that it was funny to see un-
shaven lantern-jaws beneath Para-
dise-feathered hats and hairy legs
kick high from under layers of pleat-
ed chiffon. Light operas were at their

As Musical Comedy Champs


Another name was added to the
list of faculty wives Aug. 30 when
Elizabeth Anne O'Dell, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Augustus
O'Dell of Bloomfield Hills, was
married to Dr. Lloyd Stuart Wood-
burne, son of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. A.
Woodburie of Grand Rapids.
The service was read at high
noon in Christ Church, Cranbrook,
by the rector, Rev. William Hamm.
A small reception was held at Inch
dIouse on Tiverton Rd., Bloom-
field Hills, the home of the bride's
parents. The bride, who was unat-
tended, wore a closely-fitted dress
of cream-white satin, made .very
simply in the bridal tradition, and
her Juliet cap of real lace was fash-
ioned from a fine Brittany cap 200
years old.
The couple are at home in Ob-
servatory Lodge. Dr. Woodburne
has degrees from the University
and the University of4 Berlin, and
is assistant dean of the college of
literature, science and the arts.

peak, anyway in the twenties, and the
men's opera rode along with them to
such big-time heights as profitable
touring road shows and a box-office
record at the opera house where they
were shown in New York. In fact,
the revues enjoyed such a tremendous
vogue that their profits financed a
good portion of the building expense
of the present Union.
Mimes made a big comeback
with its offering, "Four Out of Five"
-about you-know-what. It repeated
with its 1940 production, 'Take A
Number", and, of course. promises
great things of Union Opera: Edition
1941. That's to be expected.
JGP hasn't had as star-studded a
history as has Mimes. due in part,
perhaps to the fact that it's never
had as exciting material to feature
as Men's Opera has. (You'know-
athletes to draw the female sheckels
at the box-office.) Just about the
most outstanding athletic personality
JGP has ever been able to dig up has
probably been something sensational,
like the captain of the Michigan Cro-
cheting Team.
