Honor Society
To Meet Today
At Breakfast
Wyvern To Adopt Alumnae
Scholars; Will Acquaint Them
With Varied Campus Activities
Wyvern, junior women's honor so-
ciety, will meet for a cafeteria break-
fast at 8 a.m. today in the Russian
Tea Room of the League to plan an
informal gathering with Freshmen
Alumnae Scholars.
Traditional fall function of Wyvern
is the adoption of these scholars for
a program designed to acquaint themi
with toe opportunities and activities
available to University women. Meet-
ings between the incoming women
and Wyvern juniors are to be per-
sonal and completely independent of
formal orientation.
Alumnae* associations in all parts
of the state sponsor the scholarships,
awarded annually to outstanding
graduates of local high schools on the
basis of scholastic standing, char-
acter and need for financial assist-
ance. Maintenance of the scholar-
ship is dependent on University
grades so that it is of primary im-
portance that Alumnae Scholars be
given a chance for early adjustment.
Not only the facilities for study will
be considered in the discussions be-
tween scholars and Wyverns, but the
advisability of a light program of
extra-curricular activity suited to the
individual interests of each scholar.

kee, Wis., and Mrs. Bjarne Larson of

uate. Best man for the bridegroom
was Robert Kleiner, '41L, a classmate
of Ensign Westbrook's.

Column (i9A t... by au

Hi, Freshman, so you're being "ori-
ented", initiated into the intricacies
of living at Michigan, advised, ad-
monished, warned, guided, teased, ex-
ploited, and wrung in one brief week
through the three years of college e.x-
perience your predecessors have
known. You've read all the "So
You're Going To College" stories in
the fall magazines, and perhaps most
of the "Advice to Freshmen" stories
in The Daily as well as the "advice-
to-freshman-disguised-as-news" stor-
ies. And you've found yourselves de-
scribed as young, bashful, green,
timid, questioning, naive, afraid, and
-well, need I go on? It sounds as if
you're being told, not asked how you
feel, doesn't it?
That's about the story-why? Well,
it's because we seniors aren't too far
removed from pot caps ourselves not
to have detailed memories of our own
freshman days. Indeed our feelings
as freshmen loom in retrospect far
more vividly than they did when the
prospect of a fist year was imminent.
All of which is one reason, I suppose,
why seniors delight so in passing
along their own individual gems of
knowledge.
We, The Students...
The fact that you're a college stu-
dent gives you license to the crazy,
mad sort of fun tht older, saner
folk smile at and call ridiculous. You
and I can drink a coke every hour,
not because we love the flavor but be-
cause it's done or because we love the
sociability of the coke dlate. We can
wear clothing so eccentric as to be
outlandish anywhere but on the col-
lege campus; we're expected to do
these things, moreover. We dictate
to the fashion magazines, we have a
jargon, an alphabetical code, a way of
life that is ours alone. These are the
privileges.
The responsibilities are another
story. Off campus, for example, you
won't be expected to radiate "co-ed",
custom, and craziness. You will be
expected to show a little common
sense and some knowledge of what's
going on in the world off the diagonal
as well as along it. So, prime your-
self....
They Say ...
There's a lot of cryptic comment
that goes about about college stu-
dents: you've heard it-most of it
falls in three categories. They say
that typically (a) we're the intellec-
tual cream, the financial top-milk,
the hope of the future; (b) we're
honey-fed, ivory-towered, cloistered,
sequestered youth unaware of the ex-
istence of a brutal, war-torn world;
(c) we're the lost generation.
Think twice. (a) is an opinion too
idealistic to live up to; (b) is an opin-
ion to live down; and (c) doesn't
make sense-so don't try to become
"a typical student." There's no such
thing. Try to remember that this
isn't Miss Cobb's Finishing School;
it's the University of Michigan. Here
we don't grind finished products off
the assembly line, all fit and packed
by the gross. You develop what you
and a. few breaks combine to make
you.
Secondly, begin now to look ahead,
not back. Forget your high school
triumphs, failures, disappointments,
expectations, and begin again and
then keep on giving yourself fresh
starts-last semester's grades don't
count a quarter so much as this
semester's.
Easy Does I t ...
Thirdly, adopt early the habit of

choosing your courses carefully and
remembering that you can only get
out of them what you put in and get-
ting to know your professors and so
on . . . b t that's a waste of time be-
cause it's too personal. After all,
you'll only learn what and how to
study and how and when to apple
polish by trying it yourself. Every-
body doesn't like the same courses or
the same teachers. And it wouldn't
be college if you didn't get stuck now
and then in a class you hated and
again in one you loved but had to
struggle to pass. It wouldn't be col-
lege if you didn't have some gripes
and if you didn't try to outdo your-
-self griping about them.
You'll be "oriented" and despite all
the applied adjectives you'll get
along and you'll be happy. You'll
know 4 reckless abandon you won't
find anywhere else, you'll find the
advantages of many facilities, and
the knowledge of many minds
dumped in your lap, you'll know the
fun of fellowship.
So, lastly, forget that anyone ever
smugly, tritely called college "prepar-
ation for life!" It isn't any prepara-
tion; it's the realest life you'll ever
live if only you will make it so. Start
living it-and have fun..
Open Dance At Union
Will Begin Season
For Rainbow Room
Wide open doors will set aside this
week-end at ,the Union as a special
occasion, with the Friday and Satur-
day dances open to everyone, regard-
less of membership in the Union.
Dances this week-end, as through-
out the social season, will be held
from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Friday, and
from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday.
Bill Sawyer and his orchestra will be-
gin their third year as the Michigan
Union orchestra.
With Sawyer will be Gwen Cooper,
vocalist, already well-known among
the student group as a singer in the
sweet - but - husky - voiced tradition.
Big John Hudak will highlight the
vocals with his conception of the
droll in music.
The dance after the game with
Michigan State is traditionally a big
affair, with the graduates of other
years especially welcome. All floors
will be cleared for the dance to af-
ford the maximum dancing space,
with the terrace room floor off the
Rainbow Room also open to dancers.
The regular week-end dances at
the Union will be closed affairs, open
to those with Union memberships, af-
ter this next week-end.
Freshman Touches
Upperclassman Ego
What a chance you freshmen have!
What a line, natural and cute as
kittens! Never again will you be
expected to be dumb--your charming
ignorance ,not only forgiven but
courted for that certain something
it does to the upperclass ego.
Carry a map-as big as possible,
and unfurl it without shame on the
public corners. Dig to the root of
the mysterious Michigan idioms up-
perclassmen use so casually.
