Suited For Defense

Will Sponsor
Annual Dance
Party To Be Pay-Off For Dates
Accumulated Throughout Year;
Boutonrijeres Are Appropriate
Breaking away from the usual cus-
tom of having the J-Hop gals ask
their dates to Pay-Off, to be held
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, Feb.
27, the dance is this year designed
to give the women a, chance to re-
pay the men for obligations accum-
ulated during the year.
This annual revolution in campus
social life is sponsored by Mortar-
board, senior women's honorary soci-
ety. Expressing the spirit of the
times, Pay-Off will be a very infor-
mal dance, where the sweater girl
will be in her glory. A nickelodeon
set up in the League ballroom will
furnish the latest music of the best
dance bands.
Men can expect to receive all the
attention they are so noble about
giving all year long, even to getting
corsages, which will be close enough
to boutonnieres to soothe those in-
dignant men who will insist on having
their masculinity preserved intact.
Committee women in charge of the
dance are Virginia Appleton, music;
Louise Keatley, programs; Jane
Baits, boutonnieres; Peggy Polum-
baum, tickets; Margaret Sanford and
Virginia Freye, decorations; Phyllis
Lovejoy, finance; Rosebud Scott, pa-
trons and Grace Miller, publicity.
Pay-Off was originally instituted
four years ago to give the women on
campus a chance to thank their J-
Hop dates but is an opportunity for
any woman to "pay off" any man she
has dated.
Guy Metraux
Will Address
French Table
At one of the regular round table
meetings to be held Friday from 8
p.m. to 9 p.m., at the International
Center, Guy Metraux, a special stu-
dent here, will talk in French on the
difference in attitude between Cana-
dian, American, and Argentinian
farmers, Mrs. Ruth Wendt announced
today. An informal discussion will
be held afterwards.
Metraux, whose home address is
Lausanne, Switzerland, nevertheless
lived in Argentina for some time and
observed conditions there.
Although these gatherings are of
chief interest to those fluent in the
French tongue, everyone is welcome,
and there are no charges.
Mrs. Wendt mentioned at the same
time that it was important to repeat
that all language affairs will begin
again this week. Portuguese round
tables will be held on Tuesdays from
7:15 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.; German dis-
cussion groups will be held Wednes-
days from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.; and the
Spanish Corner will be held Thurs-
days from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The next International Center Ger-
man Tea will be held Feb. 24, from
4 p.m. to 6 p.m., in the Grand Rapids
Room in the League.
Hold Meetings Today
The Merit System Committee will
meet at 3:30 p.m. today in the
League. Any eligible women who are
interested in working on this com-
mittee may attend.
There will be an important meet-
ing of the WAA Board at 5 p.m. to-
day. The meeting will be held in the
Members of the Panhellenic Board
will meet today at 4:15 p.m. in the

troit by the University Extension
Service Feb. 23-28. The Institute will
feature Dr. Paul Poponoe.

Registration produced a problem-
not the usual kind, however. The
cashier's cage, put up in Barbour on
Monday before registration, con-
fronted Donelda Schaible and Jean
Johnson when they wanted to play
badminton on the next day. "But
"never say die" said they, and with
that, they simply strung a rope across
the gymnasium floor through the
cage-and they played! Forgot to
find out who won though!
What with the decrease in en-
rollment of the male sex this sem-
ester and the general scarcity of
men around, your new fangled
techniques of bow and arrow may
not get your man; if in despair, trot
over to Barbour and see how the
"old, gals" did it. There's a case
containing old archery equipment,
an exhibit put together by Mrs.
Stewart Hanley (golf expert deal-
ing in arrows!), which is really in-
teresting and may prove helpful.

over there for a hint, a .similar dis-
play of other sports equipment may
be started, and an evolutionary view

showing your interest?

In response to the nation-wide de-

Standard First Aid course, for which
over 255 students registered. This
course will be conducted in four sec-
tions, having ten class meetings of
two hours each. Fifty-five have en-
rolled in the Advanced First Aid
Course, while four, mostly graduate
nurses, have enlisted in the Instruc-
tor's training course.
Motor Mechanics Course Closed

the instruction of a limited number.
Thirty-six have signed up, although
5 more applied.
The course in Child Care for Nur-
sery School Volunteers is also closed
because of limited facilities, a total
of 47 having signed up. The nutri-

is "more there than meets the eye."
The gals are clearing out of the
W.A.B. for blood donation activities
on Feb. 17 and 19; just another step
in the defense work WAA is promot-

To enjoy this snowy weather to
the greatest extent, why not ski in
the Arboretum and enjoy its wintry
landscape, for a change. Ski equip-
ment may be rented for a small fee
at the W.A.B. so come on down!
Final reminder for all those who
didn't get their names on the entry
blank for the tourneys of the see-
ond indoor season; today is the last
day to turn your name in if you
want to participate in the bowling
