Model Nurse
To Accept Gifts
For. Red Cross.
On ydur way thro gh the League
iLobby today, you'll nbtice a life-like
model of a Red Cross nurse, (she's
a .rather tall but a capable one). Her
arm is outstretched and in her hand
is a box with a slot for loose contri-
butions to the 'organization-con-
tributions under one dollar.
Shed represents pictorially, the be-
seeching attitude of the Red Cros's
on behalf of .those in need, the drive
for all campus which was launched
yesterday and will continue until
Nov. 30. Next to the nurse, from 1
p.m. to 5 p.m. every afternoon this
week, there will be someone on duty
at - a table ready to sell the dollar
memberships and dispense cards,
buttons and stickers
By Saturday, a chart will be added
tN the nurse display,. on which all
contributions will be recorded as they
are made to the different dormitories,
sororities and league house represen-
tatives, and it will be kept up from
day to day. Each dormitory, sor-
ority and league house zone will be
represented on the chart.
Women's Red Cross goal this year
is $700, quite a lot over the $450 which
was the goal last year. All women are
to buy their memberships from their
residence representative but the wo-
man at the table and the nurse in
the lobby will take any that are left

First Faculty Dance
Will Be Held Today
The faculty and alumni will hold
the first of a series of five dances
from 9 p.m. to midnight today in

which run from November through

inembers of the conference. Since Detroit is no more favored by the ele-
ments than our fair town, it did the same thing there, yes, you've guessed it,
it rained. And wallowing in the mud was not just a thing in books, for the
players found sliding down the field easier than running. The fog was
thick too; even though the field was only 50 yards wide the players couldn't
Cee across it. Those who braved the elements were Violet Varden, Ruby
Maurer, Shirley Risburg and Annette Kemper. And in spite of the diffi-
culty in playing, Nancy Bercaw and lMaureen Patterson succeeded in mak-
ing the Great Lakes reserve team-good for them!
Crop and Saddle spent the last meeting training in the ring inside the
riding hall. After warming up by trotting around the ring several times, the
riders were told to take their feet out of the stirrups and continue to ride
around. Well, rumor has it that their faces dfopped a few feet at these
words, but after taking a deep breath and with a stern look of determination
each girl did her best and soon found that she was better thsan she had ex-
pected. Besides, it's good for the muscles, girls! A hot supper followed the
worlstout, and then the trip back to the campus, with everyone singing mer-
rily .... sounds like fun, guess we'll have to learn to 'post' after all,

Volleyball tourney still going on, we have scores to announce . . . . so
hear ye! Alpha Omicron Pi defeated Delta Delta Delta, 48-9, Alpha Delta
Pi the same to Pi Beta Phi, 38-26, and Mosher beat Alpha Gamma Delta.
Alpha Phi downed Zeta Tau Alpha to the tune of 45-34, while Helen
Newberry did likewise to Alpha Xi Delta, 32-18. Kappa Delta swamped
Alpha Epsilon Phi, 55-4, Betsy Barbour defeated Kappa Kappa Gamma,
35-27, and Jordan downed Delta Gamma 28-26. So 'til soon, solong, again.

At a tea in the League the en-
Tagement of Beulah Eddy, daughter
,f Mr. and Mrs. I. J. Eddy, Scottville,
o Gilbert Anderson, son of Mrs. Gil-
'ert Anderson of Detroit and the latc*
Vir.' Anderson, was announced.
Miss Eddy is a graduate of Cen-
tral Michigan College of Education.
Mr. Anderson received his bachelor's
'egree from the University and is
now working for his master's degree.
He is a member of Phi Kappa Phi,
senior honor society and Alpha Mu,
speech society.
Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Elliott of Angola,
Ind., announce the marriage of their
daughter, Janet, to Dr. John W.
Schonwald, son of Dr. and Mrs. J.
D. Schonwald of Oxford, Ohio.
Mrs. Schonwald is a graduate of

wald who is on the University Hos-
:ital staff, received his bachelor of
irts degree at Miami University and
:is medical degree from the Uni-
versity of Cincinnati.

School and intends to enter the Uni-
versity next fall.
While this is her first job with a
dance orchestra, Ginny gained valu-
9able experience through singing pop-
ular music over Station WSPD in
Toledo for four years. She has studied
voice five .years,her lessons in Ann
Arbor being under the direction of
Prof. Hardin A. Van Deursen.
Eesembles Deanna Durbin
The latest addition to Miller's or-
chestra is blond and blue-eyed and
bears a striking resemblance to movie
actress Deanna Durbin. In fact, a
few years ago, Ginny was one of five
girls in the United States selected by
a Hollywood magazine as looking
most like the actress.
It is not strange then that Ginny is
a member of the Durbin Fan Club
'and makes a hobby of collecting pic-
tures of the star. At present she has
3,000 photographs..
She spends most of her outside
time practicing voice, playing the
piano and writing to 45 persons from
all part's of the country whom she
M has never met. Her favorite sports
are tennis, swimming and horseback
Winner Is Excited
There was no need to ask Ginny
how she felt upon learning that she
had won the song contest, for sur-
prise, excitement and thrill showed
clearly on her face for hours after-
ward. In fact, she was so excited she
couldn't describe how she felt except
"terrifically weak."
"I think this is my big chance,"
she said, and Miller promptly added,
"and I hope it is."
