Tennis Tournament
Constance Hammett, '45, won the
women's fall tennis tournament yes-
terday afternoon when she defeated
Jane Edmonds, '44, in straight sets
with scores of 6-4, 6-1. Miss Hammett
advanced to the finals when she de-
feated Doris Ann Hendricks, '42, while
Miss Edmonds won her semi-final
match through default. The latter,
ranked number four at the beginning
of the tournament, was the only
seeded player who did not default.
Miss Hammett, a freshman from
Englewood, New Jersey, has had
much tournament experience in the l
past which accounts for her success.
4fter playing tennis for many years,
she won the New Jersey District
tournament, the Eastern Center, and
the Long Island tournaments.

Elizabeth Luckham, '42, chairmanI
of the drive, has announced that this
total includes only the five dormi-
tories and the twelve sororities which
have reported; no league houses or
cooperative houses have been heard

Union Dance
To Be Qiven
Thanksgiving is significant to most
in that they can eat and sleep-to
others of the more energetic type, in
that they can attend the "Fowl Ball"
from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. today in theI
Union ballroom.
There will be no advance in prices
over those of the regular week-end
dances, Bob Templin, '43; general
chairman said proudly and also there
will be no fowls. Bill Sawyer will lead
such distinguished musicians as Dave
Falvay, Phil Bush, Bill Rhoades and
Lou Hurd, and a few others whose
names we can't recollect at the mo-
ment. Anyhow, all together Sawyer
and his orchestra have promised some
more of those brand new arrange-
ments and Big John specialties.
Feature of the evening will be the
distribution of 10 free tickets to regu-
lar week-end Union dances to those
holding the lucky ticket stubs.
Hall Will Hold Tea
Tea will be served after dinner

If you're tall and rarely have the opportunity to look down on your
friends (or enemies) then you'll appreciate the great joy and exhilaration
experienced by Jean Johnson (five feeet ten) when at the State Conference
of Athletic Federation of College Women, held in Kalamazoo last week-end
she found five female Paul Bunyan-sized delegates from Wayne University.
They were really tall, and may it be said that it was the first time that Jean
had to look up to anybody!

Connie Hammett, victor in the women's singles tennis tournament, is
reported to have achieved her victory with a steady game, excellent net game
and beautiful serve . . . honest! we're not prejudiced. Opponent Jane Ed-
monds seemed to show great strength several times when she put over soilie
swift passing shots when Connie was at the net, but she didn't quite hit her
stride. Steadiness rather than spectacularity characterized the game . . .
"here's to the victor (s) valiant" .. . an orchid to Connie, from us, and bet-
ter luck next time, Jane.

Feminine fencers are going home with groans these days, having been
thoroughly worked out to a frazzle by Ray Chambers and John Dreher, who
fence at the IM building regularly, and who, according to Mary Reichle,
chairman of the club, really know their stuff ....

The first outdoor season being fast completed and the first indoor season
about to set in, woman athletes are torn between two fires, finishing their
volleyball tourney and practicing for the inter-house basketball tournament
which will begin next week. On occasion, basketball is even practiced with
a volleyball, for lack of keys to the cupboard or somep'un.
To start off the season, house athletic managers will meet at 4:30 p.m.
Monday at the W.A.B. to have explained to them the where, how and why
of the new activities for the season, which will open Tuesday. Zoning of
league houses was done in the middle of last season, so that girls now have
an organized group behind them when they go out to play. The houses are
grouped as to proximity so that inter-house communication is made easier.


girl. When all of a sudden arose such
a sound, they jumped from theirf beds
to see what was the matter."
Imagine the reaction when 400 col-
lege girls received phone calls at
identically the same time. That is
exactly what happened to the resi-
dents of Stockwell Hall. Rudely
awakened out of her customary
beauty sleep, each girl rushed to the
nearest phone, only to encounter
every other girl in the corridor doing
the same thing.
They Wouldn't Give Up
Fights and arguments followed as
each girl claimed that the other was
mistaken as to whose buzzer had
buzzed. Everyone tried to call the
main desk to prove that her buzzer
had sounded. One girl who was actu-
ally trying to talk to someone gave up
competing with what she called "1,000
voices in the ether."
At the main switchboard were two
people enjoying the whole thing im-
mensely, the house janitor and the
switchboard operator,'Gloria Nishon.
They had been trying to fi* a minor
trouble in the board and had inad-
vertantly pulled the general alarm.
The board almost immediately ex-
ploded with answ'ering buzzes from
every room in the dorm. One would-
n't think girls were as anxious as all
that for phone calls!
West Quad To Hold
Annual Tea Dance
West Quadrangle will hold their
third annual Thanksgiving tea-dance
from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thurs-
Mrs. Charles H. Peak, Mrs. Lura
D. Niles, Mrs. Virginia Harryman, and
Mrs. E. K. Herdman are directing
the plans for the dance which will
include an orchestra, refreshments,
and appropriate decorations.
Those attending are urged to ask
their dates to stay for the buffet
supper to be served afterwards.

Reports from Red Cross repre-
sentatives in sorority and league
houses are to come in daily. The
former are to call Rosalie Smith, '42,
and the latter, Mary Brownrigg, '44.
Miss Luckham stressed the fact that
without the cooperation of these rep-
resentatives,the chart can mean
nothing; all are urged to call in daily J
and report the total amount of money
they have collected as well as the
number of memberships.
Collection Continues
Women will be selling member-
ships in the League lobby at a table
near the chart all week and from 10
a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday before the
