Two OnThe Aisle
For JiP
It seems there are a few incidental
odds and ends that must be cleaned
up before JGP can start on its new
speed-up-production system.
There are but five and one-half
weeksto whip the show intonpre-
sentable shape. Think it can be
done? Sure it can, but it will neces-
sitate the fullest cooperation on the
part of each and every junior girl.
First of all-those health rechecks
must be taken care of pronto. Ap-
pointments may be made at the
.Health Service any old time of the
day. The whole recheck takes about
15 minutes, is very mild and it is
to your definite advantage to take
it. Well, you can't work on JGP un-
til your health card is okayed, so
let's take care of that right away.
r 1::
Everyone is asked to call for their
eligibility cards at the Dean's Office
as soon as final grades are issued
from that office. These cards must
e signed in the League and brought
to the next meeting of the respective
committee or to tryouts.
Tryouts for speaking parts in the
1943 Junior Girls Play will start
Wednesday. The time and length
of tryout period will be announced
There will be a meeting of the
music committee at 3 p.m. tomorrow
in the League. All those who signed
up for the committee as piano play-
ers, lyric writers or music writers
must be present and will be dropped
if absent without excuse from Bar-
bara de Fries, music chairman, or
Connie Gilbertson, assistant chair-
Any one-both men and women-
interested in writing music for the
production are urged to attend this
meeting as a brief synopsis of the
plot of the musical comedy will be
given at that time. Anyone having
original music who wishes to submit
it to JGP may bring it at this time
though song auditions will not be
held until next week.
In other words, the sole purpose of
this meeting is to give an idea to
those wanting to write music of what
will be needed and also to line up
the piano players and lyric writers.
The duplicate bridge tournament
will be resumed today. As last sem-
ester, everybody, including students,
faculty and people of Ann Arbor are

Petites Pommes de Terre
News of eligibility or non-eligibility is practically out now, and although
we're not particularly sure that there is the gigantic scramble which we
are led to believe starts at this time of the year-with swarming mobs of
freshmen opportunists eagerly examining the benefits offered by each
campus organization and frantic mobs of seniors, siren-like, luring the best
of the crop into their activity-at any rate, there may be a very few fresh-
men around who want advice on what activity to enter.
And this column is from us particularly to them. We have a favorite
activity-one which is very near and dear to us, and one which we wish
to boost a bit. Anything which has as much to offer to the up-and-coming
freshman as this organization does, certainly deserves all the publicity it
can get. The noble group of which we speak is the Union.
Cultural center; developer of personality; inspirer of initiative; center
of wit and Precieuse discussion; core of the campus! Union, we salute you!
(The Union also has a barber shop in the basement, a pool room on the
second floor and washrooms at convenient intervals.)
We say that it is a developer of personality and a center of wit; no
proof of this is needed. One has only to walk into the Undergraduate Offices
of the Union to realize the crystal lucidity of this statement. There they
all are-every personality of them. All fine, upstanding, sterling characters,
and every one alike. The same honest industriousness, the same sparkling
wit-("What he just said was a quotation from Milton - - - - Berle." This
with much comradely laughter and good feeling all around and then back
to earnest industriousness.) One need accept no substitute for a Union boy.
One is equal with the other.
We also mention that it is a cultural center, and we do not say this,
either, in idle jest. For anyone who has a writing talent there is a special
little corner in the Union Executive Committee's heart. Because there is no-
thing which the Union Executive Committee would rather do than read
reports on important stuff like "Coke Bars of 1941" or "The Union's Sun-
day Morning Saunters As Seen In 1939 By The Recording Secretary of the
Sunday Morning Saunters." These reports usually run to a size which makes
a doctor's thesis look like one of Gargoyle's Varsity Vignettes, except that
there is a certain resemblance, the general style being very much like one
of Gargoyle's Varsity Vignettes.
One which we particularly enjoyed was one by last year's Orientation
Program director-a little thing which ran to 58 pages of fine quality typing
paper. It included phrases like "When I was appointed director of orienta-
tion" agd "After much consideration, I decided" and in addition occupied
much space with things called Exhibits. These were very valuable, being
filled out applications and such, and it's a lucky tling they were included.
It's a plenty hard thing to figure out-this filling out of applications. -We
forgot to mention that the Union Executive Committee also keeps a special
corner of the attic for those with writing talent.
Lastly, the Union is an inspirer of initiative. Everyone knows that.
Look at the latest of the organizations which they are forming! This one is
called the Wolverines; its purpose is "to stimulate school spirit, and to make
Michigan united as a student body;" it will have a constitution; it will sit
in a reserved section at the football games.
Why don't you go out for the 'Ensian? They do exciting things there-
they file cards in the afternoons. J

Regardless of the fact that the
moon is still shining on the way to
that eight o'clock class, Dahe Fash-
ion maintains that spring is practi-
cally here. In fact, she claims thatj
now is the time to purchase a print,
crepe, if one wishes to keep in step
with the fashion parade.
The dress pictured above is a per-
fect example of '42 styling. The com-
bination of a knife-pleated skirt and
gathered bodice maintains a like de-
sign from shoulder to hem. The tie-
back waist is a figure-flattering de-
vice which any girl will be thankful
Special note should be paid to the
use of long gloves, as they are steadily
gaining popularity for both formal
and informal wear. These are obtain-
able in a great variety of colors and
