Petitions For Orientation

eek Advisers AreDueSaturday

Two Weedks
To Be Allotted
To Interviews
Sophomore, Junior Women
Are Eligible For Application;
Marks Must Meet Standards
Petitions for freshman and trans-
fer orientation adviser appointments
may be filled out this week, and will
be accepted no later than 12 noon
Saturday in the undergraduate of-
fice of the League.
Although the announcement of ap-
pointmen'ts will be 'reserved until
spring, petitioning is being held now
in order to afford time for individual
attention to each woman who inter-
views for an appointment, according
to Jane.Baits, '42, chairman of Ju-
diciary committee.
Interviews To Follow
Following the week of petitioning,
two weeks will be alloted to inter-
viewing. This will take place from
3p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the undergrad-
uate office, Dec. 2 through Dec. 5;
and Dec. 9 through Dec. 12. In order
to avoid confusion caused by a last
day rush in interviewing, the inter-
views will be conducted on the basis
of alphabetical assignment, to be
announced in the I.O.B.
The duties of the orientation ad-
viser, to be outlined in detail follow-
ing announcement of the chosen
women in the spring, consist of ac-
quainting freshmen and transfer stu-
dents with the physical aspects of
campus, as well as acting as their
personal student advisers. Present
sophomore and junior women are"
eligible to apply for the positions,
providing that, their marks meet the
standards for participation in ac-
tivities.
Chairman To Be Chosen
A central committee in charge of
orientation will also be chosen from
the applicants, headedl by an orienta-
tion chairman. All orientation ad-
visers will return to school a week
early next September, meetingg for a
group dinner before their activities
begin.
This year the advisers met every
noon for lunch, and were provided
with dinner tickets redeemable at the
Y eague cafeteria. Their activities be-
gan with summer correspondence and
continued through the registration
period.

garten amused classmates by read-
ing them stories. Anything having
to do with figures fascinates him and
often on trips busies himself figuring
mileage and rates of sneed.
Harve Fischman, age 11, is a red-
head and possesses an infectious
smile and laugh that makes him a
favorite wherever he goes. He's the
American history and presidents ex-
pert of the group and is making a
book of interesting facts about in-
teresting people of historical and
contemporary fame.
Harve The Doodler
His interest in history became evi-
dent when he was four years old and
doodled away on scrap paper with
ideas of how Yankee and Confeder-
ate soldiers looked. His favorite game
is pinochle, but not being able to
find a deck in town, had to be con-
tent playing checkers
Jack Lucal, age 14, but only for a
month, was dark and dignified (in
fact handsome, if that's possible for
14 years) and strangely enough is
considering priesthood-until he falls
in love, no doubt.
Cuts The Newspaper t
Jack's chief interest is current
events an while we busily scrawled
out notes, he studied a newspaper
clipping of the supreme court jus-
tices-"just in case," he said. His
mother has trained him "to read a
newspaper with a scissors."
Gerard Darrow, age 9, the ring
leader of the kids, has the most in-
tellectual appearance and at the
same time is the most boyish acting.
You never know what he's going to
say ! next-usually it's something
quick and clever and off the trackof
the conversation.
Gerard Is Nature Lover
Gerard is the expert of sources of
nature with herpetology being his
main line though his aunt insists he
doesn't know anything about it. He
Theatre-Arts'
Second Play
To Open Friday
"Pinocchio," second in the 1941-42
productions to be presented by Thea-
tre Arts, children's dramatic organi-
zation, will open Friday with one per-
formance at 3:45 p.m. and will fol-
low with two performances on Sat-
urday, at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Starting with the famous Collodi
tale which has, in addition to its
natural charm and adaptability to
children's acting, a ready-made audi-
ence, both juvenile and adult, the
League's theatre unit has made the
story into one of the most effective
child-plays of the season.
Playing the leading role, that of
the little wooden puppet who had
such a difficult time being good, and
who had such trouble with a nose
which grew to enormous lengths\
when he told lies, is John Hathaway.
He is supported by a cast of Ann
Arbor grade school children.
Because Theatre Arts is not a pro-
ject designed to make money, but is
in the nature of a laboratory theatre
for the University men and women
who take the main roles and for the
younger children taking junio parts,
only a small charge is made for tick-
ets. They may be purchased at the
League all this week.
Mary Ellen Wheeler is directing
the series this year, and general
chairman is Virginia Appleton, '42,
with Veitch Purdom, '42, asnd Marjory
Storkan, '43, assisting her.

dislikes ice cream because "it's too
cold" and is quite proud of his men-
agerie of alligator, turtles, lizard, sal-
amander and cocker spaniel.
"I could have wrung his neck," his
aunt said, referring to their inter-
view with President Ruthven when
Gerard dominated the conversation
with his dissertation on ornithology.
Once more, he was apparently un-
daunted when he learned that Presi-
dent Ruthven was no less an expert
on the subject.
The Musical Expert -
Joan Bishop, age 14, is the musical
expert of ljhe troupe. She started pi-
ano at the age of five and at the end
of three months gave a full length
public recital. At six and seven years
she played atthe Chicago World's
Fair and at eleven played with the
Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Joan possesses absolute pitch in
the extreme and can reach octaves
with the thumb and third finger.
She has a natural free arm move-
ment which takes others years to ac-
quire and slim, strong hands indica-
tive of a great musical future.
All the Quiz Kids called, Ann Ar -
bor "a nice little town"awhile Harve
was particularly impressed with the
State Street traffic. Dick ventured
to remark that what they wanted
most to see was the stadium and
Fritz Crisler.
