Dance Temne
.WilI Feature
'JIngle.. Bell'
Belles And Beaux To Convene
At Senior Society 'Jingle Jives;
Band To Have Santa Disguise
"Jingle Bells" will be the appro-
priate theme song when belles and
beaux meet at Senior Society's come-
across dance, "Jingle Jives," from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, Dec. 12, in the
League Ballroom.
The round-cheeked Santas puffing
under a snow-bedecked canopy will
be Herb Miller's band in disguise.
Miller is working on a medley of
Christmas songs for the informal
dance, and a spe'cial arrangement of
"Jingle Bells" with word by Donna
Baisch, '42, has already been pre-
To Be Outdoor Scene
The entire ballroom will be decor-
ated to represent a Christmas scene
outdoors, with evergreens, bells, snow,
red and white decorations, and
strings of colored lights.
Tickets will be sold to women by a
Santa Claus on campus Monday for
women will do the asking to this afA-
fair. The annual Assembly dance is
known. as the "Pay-Off" dance, for
it is an opportunity for independent
women to pay off their indebtedness
to the men who have been showing
them the campus all year.
Will Serenade Tonight
Members of Senor Society last
night serenaded half of the women's
residence halls with the theme song
to their dance, written by Miss
Baisch. Tonight Martha Cook, Betsy
Barbour, Adelia Cheever, and Helen
Newberry will hear the familiar tune
with its new verse as follpws:
"Dashing through the dorm
With just a chance to say
It's 99 to 1
That we are here today, hey-
To let you in the know
That you have to go-
Don't give that man a chance
It's "come-across and dance."
Jingle Jive, Jingle Jive
It's on Dec. 12th I
Go on out and get that man
Don't leave him on the shelf.
Jingle Jive, Jingle Jive
That's right, it's on Dec. 12th."
Crepe-Soled Shoes
Like Brother Wears
Replace Old Saddles
Since the men are perennially and
emphatically opposed to saddles and
since fashion experts have dreamed
up quite a few other shoe styles for
the co-ed, it is now up to the women
to put their best campus foot forward
in something better than run-down,
dirty saddles.
If you have always wanted a pair
of those thick crepe-soled shoes like
your brother's, then now is your
chance to get some of your own. You
even have your choice of rough or
smooth leathers, dark or light shades
and center or side ties. Who could
ask for more?
Howiever, for those preferring lea-
ther soles the styles are even more
varied. '7here is always the slip-n
moccasin, with stitched or plain toes,
or a heavier shoe of dark brown lea-
ther with raw-hide laces to brig'hten
it up.

WAA To Hold
Mass Meetmgs
For Women
A mats meeting will be held at 4
p.m. tomorrow at the Women's Ath-
letic Building for all women who are
interested in any sort of a hobby.
The purpose of this meeting, accord-
ing to Bette Sachs, '43Ed, who is in
charge, is to discuss plans for a hob-
by club under the auspices of WAA.
Photography, making Christmas
cards, stamp-collecting, any kind of
odd collection-these are but a few
of the interests the hobby club will
foster and develop.
Regular meetings will be held from
4 p.m. to 6 p.m. every Thursday on
the second floor of the W.A.B.
Among other plans, Miss Sachs re-
veals that the club will exhibit any
odd and unusual collection in show-
cases in various places on campus.
Another mass meeting will be held
at 4 p.m. today at the W.A.B. for all
women interested in leadership train-
ing. Because of the demand for wom-
en in the present world situation, the
WAA has decided to add national
defense training to its present pro-
gram, which should prove valuable
and interesting to most women stu-
University women will be given
an opportunity to enroll and be
trained in recreational leadership in
order to be of assistance during the
present emergency. Donelda Schai-
ble, '42, will lead the meeting and
explain the position of women in the
present crisis.
Women who are prevented from
participating in activeesports because
of health ratings will find the pro-
grm of the club satisfactory. Valu-
able experience is offered in com-
munity recreation, playground work
and in camp counselling. Also in-
cluded in the program will be infor-
rhation on keeping scores, keeping
time and refereeing WAA tourna-
University women paticipating
will receive credit as is customary for
dlA WAA club activities. Different
aspects of the work planned will be
discussed and since the program is
at the tentative stage, it will be ex-
panded to include the interests and
desires of the women attending.
All University women interested in
an organization for leadership train-
ing are invited to attend.
New Rubber Boots
Copy Western Style
Go dashing through the snqw this
winter in a pair of rubber boots with
that new "tooled" Western look.
They'll be sure to match your winter
outfit since they come in red, brown,
and white.
Or if you'd prefer something a little
different, how about sporting a pair
of the two-toned jobbies? They also
have that certain cowboy air with
their white designs on either a black
or. brown background. For those do-
or-die conservatives, last year's pop-
ular cavalry style is back again.
If you decided against a pair of
boots this winter, remembering what
a tussle your roommate had with hers
last year, you evidently haven't heard
that the 1941 models are made of a
thinner, more flexible rubber, so that
one can practically glide into them.
So get a pair of rubber boots and
then just wait for snow to fly!

Indoor athletics are really indoor
these days what with fogs and mists
and rainy-reversible weather. Ex-
ceptions to the rule are the Crop and
"Satellites" who brave the elements
each and every Wednesday for their
usual moonlight rides, and the hostel
group which cycled merrily off to the
Saline Valley Farms last week-end.

Now that the volley-ball lines are
off the floor in Barbour Gym basket-
ball enthusiasts won't have to stop
short at a white line, afraid to move
another inch carrying the ball, for
those confusion-causing lines are no
more. Players could have at least
three feet to go, before being con-
fronted by boundaries and yet not
realize it, because of these frustrating

One of the instructors happened to
notice two freshmen at the edge of
the pool or should we say foot-bath
(you'll see why!) in Barbour the
other day. Both were clad in gym
suits, looking into the pool with tow-
els slung over the arms . . . this in-
structor is still wondering whether
they were intending to cleanse the
lower extremities therein . . . maybe
we ought to have a larger pool so it
wouldn't and couldn't possibly be
mistaken for a foot-bath! . . . re-
mnember that when the annual project

Sharpshooters, otherwise known as
the Riflery Club, i are warned that
since the club is so large, and since
members haven't been attending
their instruction periods as regularly
as they should, that only those with
the best records of attendance at
these instruction periods will be ad-
mitted as permanent members. And,
gals, since this is your great chance to
be masculine, why not come in
slacks? . . . riflemaster Filstrup ad-
vises it strongly, as a matter of fact,
they're more comfy and more con-
venient than skirts . . . so comply,
Wedding Announced
Of Stegenga, Coston
Mr. and Mrs. Albert H. Stegenga

daughter, Ruth Mary to Malcolm
MacGregor Coston, son of Mr. and

Birds are really flying at Barbour
Gymnasium these days-they're go-
ing so high that they even lodge in
the rafters. V( you're in the dark, so
far, it's badminton we're talking
about. At 7:15 p.m. today, there'll
be mixed play in both Barbour and
Waterman gyms and you can "get the
bird" for only 40 cents instead of the
usual 55.

sign up by -Saturday at Barbour for
the women's singles or the open wom-
en's doubles tournaments. The sched-
ule will then be worked out and
posted in the gym by Monday.
The Badminton Club itself can
boast this year of three 'famous'
members. Coming from far off Bang-
kok, Thailand, Pongchandra Gen-
gradon, national Philippine Island
badminton champion, has been wel-
comed into the ranks, as has Margery
Geifel, a star at Stephens College
last year. Chairman Jane Edmonds
herself is a notable, for she won the
1939-40 Detroit Metropolitan News
novice badminton tourgey in wom-
en's doubles and mixed doubles end
was runner-up in singles.
Dance club has expanded . . that's
the latest. Besides the modern dance
group, there are two additional
branches from this original trunk.
Both men and women may partici-
pate; there is a ballet group which
meets at 4 p.m. on Wednesdays and
Fridays, while the gbuntry dance
group will meet from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
on Fridays .. . both in Barbour .. ,

mittee will be held 3:30 tomorrow
