Pretty Women
In Nightshirts
Are Back Again
Chattering teeth and goose pimples
are threatening signs of the ap-
proaching of cold winter nights,r
oleepy heads, so here's a bit of advice
sent down from Igloo College, Igloo,
North Pole.
This advice should be of particular
interest to dark dorm intruders, sinus
sufferers, and those who have to con-
tend with insomnia due to frigid
breezes. It also may be of help to
you unfortunates who find yourselves
in rooms with stubborn radiators-or
should we say-stubborn landladies.
Well, fellow sufferers, .nightshirts
are back in vogue, only this time with
trimming-yes, smart looking white
flannel outfits with red emboridery
on the high neckline and pockets with
long white sleeves puffed at the
wrist. You can even have your name
embroidered on these warmth insur-
For those who want complete pro-
tection from the draft-don't get ex-
cited; we're not talking army-we'
suggest Dr. Dentons, that come in all
colors now. They will bring you back
to consciousness or else smother you
in the attempt. Of course,"if you're
"the conservative type, there's the
plain man-tailored flannels, but don't
come to us if these prove to be in-
sufficient to combat the weather.
Accessories for cold-dorm sleep rs
include bed socks, bed mittens, and
night caps. Don't forget that for cold
ears, babushkas are as good at night
as for daytime wear.

you're right!-except for the possible

move into the Union Ballroom from

The dance is dubbed the Union's

as anyone can remember. Bill Saw-

the evening, the exact time at which
it is to end has not been determined.
Twinkle Toes' Sawyer
Feature off, the evening will be a
toe dance a Tla Nijinsky by Bill Saw-
yer who has been pyacticing with his
toes for years-the toe dance, during
intermission, will probably be wit-
nessed in the normal sense by a very "
few people.
There will be foot doctors at each
door to take care of sore feet as they
accumulate ,during the evening and
Dr. Brace will be present with a huge
box of aspirin to come to the aid of
all who become somewhat indisposed.

Year's Eve at the Union will A by far
the safest place to spend the holi-
"Oh yeah!" said last year's Aurig-
naciais as they sped down the street
on their knees. Wild Bill Sawyer con-
tinued with his dissertation in mono-
tone voice "besides, it will last until'
everybody is happy beyond compare."
The maestro has whipped up a few
special arrangements for this auspi-
cious occasion including: "Embrace-
able You" to be sung by Gwen Coop-
er, "Papa Piccolini" and "Huckle-
berry Duck" by Big John and the
qualtet, a sparkling new arrangement
of Revel's "Bolero" and the initial
audition .of "Blue Prelude."
Has Undergone
He may be one of our most dis-
tinguished citizens now, especially
around the Christmas season, but
once upon a time in his long career,
Santa Claus fell into disrepute.
For a time after poor Saint Nich-
olas served as a kindly bishop of Asia
Minor somewhere around 300 A. D.,
but.there came a period that we are
inclined to overlook-when. he was
the patron saint of thieves. So seri-
ously did he take his job, that Eng-
lish highwaymen were once known as
"Saint Nicholas' clerks!"
Turned Over NewLeaf
When he removed to Niuw Ams-
terdam along with the early Dutch
settlers, the old gentleman decided
apparently to turn over a new leaf-
for he even changed his name when
he took up residence here. A natur-
alized citizen so to speak, "Sankt
Klaus became Santa Claus to all good
little American boys and girls.
As evidence of his complete refor-
mation we now find him shedding
his kindness on bad little boys and
girls instead of just goody-goodies.
Young mischief makers, formerly ap-
prehensive of waking on Christmas
morn only to find the little worn
shoes placed outside the door filled
with a handful of cinders, now looked
forward to the occasion.
It's The American Way Now
Times have indeed changed from
the time when the upstart of the
household hid from the old Saint's
"Good Will" emissaries bringing can-
dy for the others but a switching for
him. Santa learned the American
way of life when he and his helpers
came to their New World. Christmas
came to be celebrated by young and
old, rich and poor alike. Now a con-
glamoration of traditions borrowed
from Europe-such as the Christmas
tree we inherited from pagan Ger-
many-and new contributions-such
as the tropical, native poinsettia-
Christmas as we know it is now defi-
nitely AmerPaan tradition.
Red Cross knitting yarn may be
secured at the Production Head-
quarters on Catherine Street in-
stead of in the Wolverine Building
as formerly announced.


War reaches down into WAA, on
this eve of vacation, for from the
Rifle club comes the news that the
University women's team challenged
the women's team of the University ofr
Hawaii at Honolulu to a telegraphic
match. At the same time, our team
was challenged by that team; the in-t
vitations crossed in the mail. Since
that time there has been no word
from the war front and riflers fear
that the match will be definitely
called off.
In addition, word has come from
several colleges that their rifle clubs
have been discontinued because the
army is calling all ROTC instructors.
Because of our large unit here, how-
ever, there is nothing to worry about
on that score, Nan Filstrup has an-

Overalls, blue jeans and slacks
{ have been the usual costume on the
courts, but shorts, skirts are much
in evidence too. When there were-
n't enough yellow "pinnies"-the
little aprons used to distinguish the
teams-to you athletic illiterates-
a yellow head scarf furnished by
one of the spectators became the
identifying mark.
Since the ultra - super - colossal
"Swimgala" of. last week-end, Miss
Thomas, swimming instructor and
sponsor of the swimming "open hour"
has reported eight volunteers for a
water ballet group to be worked up
by the group. Here's to better and
more graceful and more interesting
ballet work!
At the leadership training club
meeting held Monday, the comers
were introduced into the group as
they would be at a mixer . .a
mixer type of game was used to
get them acquainted, a practical
demonstration of how and what the
group will be working on. Miss
Har-twig, mainstay extraordinaire,
outlined the program of Civilian
-Defense Organization, exlaiing
the different levels of national, re-
gional, state and local divisions to
the girls.
Six general meetings going over
various phases of leadership training
work, will be held and thereafter the
work'will be specialized. Emphasis
is placed on the fact that the pro-
gram will be applicable to any size
group. Girls, after this course, will
have a background of practical ex-
perience to guide them in leading a
group of two or a group of 200.
At the next -meeting ,which will
be held at 4:15 the Monday after
vacation, in the Dance Studio of

Barbour Gymnasium, folk dancing
will be the order of the program.
* *
Success! That's the keynote of the
new dance groups. American country
dance group had more boys than girls
at the first meeting, so who said that
the ratio ain't what it usta be! Bet-
ter get out and dance, gals, dance!
The ballet group also was most suc-
cessful at its first meeting.

Jersey Formal
Is Outstanding
For Vacation
But a few days remain until the
forthcoming social events will whirl
you up to thb clouds, and won't let
you down again until that dismal
Monday when classes and not parties
occupy your mind.
For dinner dancing at the Ritzy
Room or the Roof Garden of Such
'n' Such Hotel, remember that your
dress should include sleeves and a
back. Answering this description, is
a gownl in slick white jersey with two
bands of emerald green faille stud-
ded with rhinestones.

the annual Country Club Christmas
dance, white still remains queen of

draped over bodice and waist will

South, this dress will be the mainstay
of your formal wardrobe.
Chiffon enters the story again
only this time in flesh pink with a
wide silver braided waistband. Full,
dancing skirt, gathered bodice and
full straps are the fashion features
of this design. It has A. practical
side also, for it can be worn well
into the spring.
Have fun, you social butterflies,
for exams are 'coming. It is then
that you will spend most of your
waking hours in a sloppy sweater,
baggy skirt, and disreputable shoes.
