French, German And Spanish
Social Hours To Be Conducted
Weekly In International Center
In accordance with President
Ruthven's plea for gredter concen-
tration in languages, there has been
a speed-up in the extra-curricular
program of foreign language social
activities, Mrs. Ruth L. Wendt has
announced, as well as increased ac-
tivity in Russian and Japanese lan-
guage departments.
At the International Center, a Ger-
man social hour will be conducted
on Wednesdays by Mrs. Wendt, Por-
tugese on Thursdays by Prof. Alberto
Leao, and French on Fridays by Prof.
Percival Price. Every Thursday dur-
ing the International Center Tea, a
Spanish conversation group will be
Tea To Be Tuesday
In addition to: this, the regular
international teas will begin again
Tuesday, with a French tea held, as
usual, in the League. All dormitories,
league houses, sororities and frater-
nities are asked to cooperate fully at
these student-conducted functions.
Mrs. Wendt stresses the impor-
tance of all students taking full ad-
vantage of these opportunities. She
finds that too many will not partici-
pate in language round tables be-
cause no credit is given.
Ruthven Predicts Im porta Ince
"We are taking President Ruth-
ven's speech on the importance of
languAges for post-war reconstruc-
tion as our motto," she said, "and the
most convenient means of getting our
students to dp more in the languages
they have learned is the organization
of extra-curricular affairs."
The Russian and Japanese lan-
guage departments will stretch their
schedule from three hours to eight,
which will include round table dis-
cussions lasting for two hour periods.'
Mrs. L. Pargment will teach the Rus-
sian, and Joseph K. Yamagiwa will
instruct students in Japanese.

Dinehart Has Unorthodox Replies
For Ordina' tma r n -


Alan Dinehart, as a Revealer of
All to the great theatre-going public,
respectsnone of the an enities of the
stock newspaper interview.
He has never been to Ann Arbor
before. He has seen neither tall
buildings nor beautiful women in
Ann Arbor-a fact which some may
excuse by saying there are none of
either, but which we hasten to ex-
plain with his addition that he "had
been sleeping until just before the
We Aren't Quite Sure
He isn't quite sure about just what,
exactly, a college audience is and
consequently, cannot say whether he
especially enjoys playing before one.
And he doesn't feel one way or the
other about the weather.
We didn't seem to be getting tooi
far with the careful list of questions
which we had prepared, to ask the
star of "Separate Rooms," the play
now being giyen in Ann Arbor, so
we looked to the Dinehart person
and costume for colorful material.
He Takes It Seriously
He's an actor who, if he isn't mak-
ing an intensely serious business out
of his acting, at least looks as though
he's making a business out of some-
thing. Just a rather average-appear-
ing courteous gentleman with a care-
fully-controlled voice-the only Hol-
'lywood touch about him, incident-
ally-who has reached the age where
one tries to comb the hair from
where it is over toward where it
We've already intimated that tl ere
was very little of the Hollywood
glamor here, so rule out, praise be
to Allah, any ideas of his wearing
either a luggage tan sport coat or a
polo shirt with an Ascotiscarf tuckedi
in at the throat. It was a dark brown
business suit and a yellow and brown
tie, and although campus exquiisites
might have shuddered and paled at
the fact that his socks didn't match


his neckwear, he presented a very
pleasant picture of a very mild, ordi-
nary guy.
We asked him if anything humor-
ous had happened so far during the
play's experiences on the road.
Displays Sense Of Humor
"Humorous?" he said, contemplat-
ively. "Well, now, let's see." Tap-
ping the chin with the forefinger.
"Humor-humor-oh yes-the little
Chihuahua dog used in the play is
just about freezing to death in this
cold weather."
We agreed with him that this was
very humorous, indeed, and decided
to let the whole thing go.
Then, we branched out into the
radical and- asked him if he had seen
any college productions anywhere in
the country, lately. Yes, he had-at
a college whose name he couldn't re-
member at the moment-where they
put the plays on in a sort of show-
boat affair. He gave a few worcs spf
approbation to this project. "The
arrangement was very cute," he said.
We thanked him and left.

Men Threaten Drastic Measures
If Women's Pants Fad Continues

If you're lucky enough to be going
on a special ski train excursion one
of these week-ends to Grayling or
Cadillac, towns in northern Michi-
gan, you'll be needing a mew ski suit.
At any rate, you may be doing your
bit of skiing in the University Win-
ter Carnival next month, so it's wise
to get that outfit now to do some
Yours should be lightweight as
well as a windbreaker and shoVld
have plenty of room for violent
movement, like the suit illustrated
above. For this reason, gabardine is
practically the uniform of the ardent
skier. Bird-cloth is good, too, being
less expensive than gabardine, but,
we must admit, gabardine surpasses
it in style and tailored beauty.
Houses Brave Cold
Winds To Entertain
It looks like the Kappa Nu's aren't
going to be left out in the cold today
since they are braving the winter
winds to terminate their gala week-
end. Yesterday they held a formal
dance and today they will be giving
an informal radio dance from 9 p.m.
to midnight at the chapter house.
The chaperons will be Mr. and Mrs.
Ben Kessel and Mr. and Mrs. S.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon will have an
ice skating party with Kappa Alpha
Theta and Gamma Phi Beta today.

(Whose opinions are his own and
not necessarily those of the Daily
Women's Staff-Editor)
"That this has gone far enough, is
evident; that something should be
done, is imperative; them women
have to take off them pants." That
is the ungrammatical outburst from
the male student body, occasioned by
coed usurpation of the masculine
long tweeds and high pockets.
It all started when an elixir of cold
wav~e was brewed in the East Lansing
kettle of the Unite States weather
bureau and spilled into this open city.
The mercury-shrinking temperatures-
caused consternation amongst our
fair, gulp, sex and they took to the
shelter of the trouser. TiMidly at
first and then in rapidly growing'
numbers they began.to assume the
attire of man's estate.
The Fad is "Taking"
Michigan men are slow to anger
and being gentlemen hesitated to
complain of the flagrant flagrancy.
They hoped that Dame Fashion
would reassert herself or that tea-
table talk would stifle the fad. But
now it appears that the women in-
tend to go on with the idea and even
improve on it.
Our "fifth column" now begins to
play fickle fashion with the plan.
They compete with ski pants, slacks
and go even unto belting themselves
about with the fraternity wrestler's
uniform-the blue denim "jeans" or
dungarees rolled at the ankle.
They complete the outfit, with
over-sze woolen shirts that hang,
and hang and 'hang like a truck's
tarpaulin. Altogether a sloppy uni-
form that obliterates any initial
