THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Christmas Cards Should Mirror
Unique Personality Of Sender
By SHIRLEY RASKEY
Football season and the Thanksgiv-
ing turkey are now events of the
past. But, so as not to dampen our
spirits, the future promises still great-
er events in the forthcoming Holiday
Season. In preparation for this oc-
casion there are such ordeals as
Christmas shopping, and-choosing a
greeting card that will surpass those
of your friends.
Upon entering a gift shop do not
become confused by the 10,000 cards
which confront you. Just exclude the
five designs you have sent in pre-
ceding years, and that will only leave
9,995 from which to choose. It is
claimed to be a simple task-by those
who never send them.
Can Be Different
Regardless of this large selection,
one poor girl was heard to wail that
she and her friend in California have
sent the same card for the last two
years, even though the former pur-
chased her design right here In dear
old AA. But don't become discour-
aged. It iS posible to obtain some-
thing different. Above all, don't give
vent to the impulse tonclose your
eyes, point your finger, and say, "I'll
take one hundred of these."
A greeting card should be a replica
of the sender's personality. For ex-
ample, what would better suit the
sweetly simple than white angels
floating across a dark blue back-
ground? For the smooth sophisticate,
the choice of modernly-designed deers
upon a plain background would prove
an able solution. For the coy and
cunning their .personality would be
reflected ih one of the numerous ad-
aptations of charming puppies and

dancing across fields, sliding down
hills, or decorating trees form gay
and seasonal prints.
Something new in the way of greet-
ing cards was introduced this season.
Replacing the usual gay colors, this
card is a combination of black and
white. Many beautiful scenic views
done in black on white may be found
in this group.
Design Own Card
If one is artistically inclined, a
clever idea would be to design your
own card. A block is then made from
this design which can be used for
printing almost indefinitely.
Those who wish to be a bit more
personal should indulge in notepaper
designed especially for the Holiday
Season. Holly ,wreaths, poinsettas, or
simply the words "Merry Christmas"
are printed neatly across the top of
the sheet. Here is an opportunity for
hyouto display that cunning wit you
have.laid claim to for years-no more

kleptomaniac who couldn't resist
walking off with two decks of
Union Opera Cards from the
League social director's office is
printed by request-of Miss Ethyl
A Merry Christmas to you! Hav-
ing received the cards from the
union, I am, of course, obliged td
return or sell them all. Since you
have neatly taken care of two
packs, I have no alternative but
to pull the dollar from my own
pocket-and this I do in true
Christmas spirit hoping you will
get many hours of enjoyment
from my gift. ' I only hope the
campus will come around to see
the design that so fascinated you
-and r lieve me of a few more
packs-but after this in the or-
thodox manner, please.

PACI Committee Will Bring
People From Same Locality
Together By Matched Dances
Not only is PACI offering to start
you off in the right way on your
vacation with its "Holiday Hop," to
be given from 3:30 pm. to 5:30 p.m.
tomorrow, in the League Ballroom,
it also has a good idea for making
that vacation profitable in the dating
way-if you feel that things like this
should be profitable in some way.
They're putting more than just a
superficial meaning on the sub-title
of the dance, "Get a Start On Your
Vacation"; the dance committee is
really taking its slogan to heart and
seeing that persons from the same
home town meet each other. And as
Hugh Ayres, '43, chairman, says,
"There you are -with a future date
prospect for vacation, if she looks
hlke a good number!"
Miller To Play
Herb Miller's music will be a fea-
ture of the dance, which is given un-
der the joint auspices of Panhellenic,
Assembly, Congress, and Interfra-
ternity, consolidated under the organ-
izational name of PACI. Representa-
tives from each of the four campus
groups make up the dance committee.
Anna Jean Williams, '42, anf Char-
lotte Thompson, '43, are Panhellenic's
delegates; Assembly is represented
by.Emily Root, '42A, and Miriam Dal-
by, '44; representatives of Congress
are William Buffington, '44E, and
Robert Sforzini, '43E; and the Inter-
fraternity delegates are Ayres and
Bill Robinson, '43.
Special groups, to be announced.
later, have been invited to attend the
affair, and hostesses will be appointed
to introduce any of the dancers who
Miss Williams will appoint the host-
esses for Panhellenic, Miss Root for
Assembly, while Buffington will
choose hosts for Congress and Robin-
son for Interfraternity.

"Athletics as usual" are the order of the day and the slogan of the times.
from now on. Sports may not interest you right now, but they may help to
keep one's equilibrium . . . doing everything as normally as possible.
First in the spotlight this week is the "Swimgala," sponsored by WAA
and Matt Mann's championship swimmers and divers, which will be at 8
p.m. Friday at the Sports Building . . . (formerly the IM). There'll be ex-
citement galore and fun galore for everyone (Japs notwithstanding), for
the water ballet troupe coming up from Chicago will cut water capers to
South American tunes. The gals will wear sarongs, a la Lamour, and 'tis
rumored they'll look fetching.
In a floating exhibition there'll be twenty women also coming from
Chicago, while our own coeds will take part in a relay race. Among those
who are doing their bit for the WAA pool which will reap gains from this
event . .. we hope! ... will be Gloria Stark, Hazel Muller, Adele Robins,
Agnes Day, Srbil Graham, Jeanne Paty, Evelyn Spamer, Phoebe Scott and
Matt's super-special team will do high and low board diving, participate
in free style, breast stroke and back stroke races, while three clowns will
promenade to add to the merriment. Gather 'round and get your tickets
from any member of the WAA board, and get in the swim!
Ann Arbor Independentites have an opportunity to form their basket-
ball team if they will only call Dorine Larmee by Friday at the latest. One
team has already been formed, and those interested are urged to come out ..
Keeping fit is an important aid to doing your lost in the ,emergency.
Betty Sachs has reported that the Hobby Lobby meeting last week was
most successful and that a Leather and Metal Works club is being organized.
An instructor will come in to help the girls in their work, and others are
making Christmas cards.
Ticket Is Won
It took an engineer to look at
a bunch of pennies and cooly size
them up as worth $4.00. Over 200
people tried to guess how much money
was in the "Jingle Jives" exhibit at
the Sophomore Cabaret, and their
answers ranged from one to fifty dol-
C. Freeman Alexander. '43E, rang
the bell with 400 pennies, and 99 of
them will be presented to him in the
form of a ticket to the independent
women's informal Christmas dance,
to be held from 9 p.m. to I a.m. Friday
in the League ballroom.
For those who missed. including
Lowell E. Tommpkins, '43, who slipped
by one penny, there is still an oppor-
tunity to purchase tickets at the

dance in a Santa disguise, and they
will work up a medley of Christmas
songs. A special arrangement of "Jin-
