Freshman Project Will Spotlight Measles
At 'Spot-Hop' In League Ballroom April 18

That present Michigan affliction,
the red and spotted measles, will be
the theme around which this year's
Freshman Project centers and the
name of the project will be "Spot
Hop," to be held from 9 p.m. to mid-
night, Saturday, April 18, in the
League Contagious Ward, otherwise
known as the ballroom.
According to Frances Thompson,
general chairman of the affair, the
supply of decorations will also be
rather measly, featuring caricatures
of the current BMOC's and BWOC's
who have had the measles at some
recent time or another.
Have A Germ
Barbara Heym, decorations chair-
man, states that "there will also be
present "The Measly Mites," whose
duty will be to spread the germs that
can get the best of you out of a
bluebook or an unwanted blind date."
The revelation of these decoration
plans also solves the problem of those
mysterious spotted posters which
have been seen around campus lately.
A date bureau under the auspices
of Anna Louise Stanton, patrons
chairman, has been established and
will begin its activities from 3 p.m.
ROTC Dance
Tickets Will Qo
On General Sale
Advanced corps ROTC pay checks.
to be paid Wednesday, will afford
'advanced corps members their last
chance to get a ticket to the annual
Military Ball, which will be held Fri--
day, April 24, as all remaining tickets
will go on general campus sale start-
ing Thursday.
Already sold are almost 200 tickets
to the dance, Lieut. L. W. Peterson
of the military science department
revealed yesterday, and as a number
of advanced corps students have been
waiting for their checks, it is ex-
pected that only a few tickets will be
available to non-military students
Meanwhile the music committee
is having more than its share of trou-
ble, chairman John Scheibe, '42M, has
announced, because most of the big-
name bands have good spots in the
East and refuse to hit the road for
the West until absolutely necessary.
Dancing will be from 10 p.m. until
2 a.m. in the Union Ballroom, women
having special late permission for
the evening. The daaice will be pre-
ceded by a special dinner for ad-
vanced corps members, to be spon-
sored by Scabbard and Blade.
Until Thursday ROTC students
may obtain tickets only from Lieu-
tenant Peterson or at the pay desk
on Wednesday. After that time they
may s.Iso be purchased from Military
Ball coimmittee members,

to 5 p.m. today in the main lobby of
the Union. At that time all gentle-
men who wish dates for the Fresh-
man Project will be given an oppor-
tunity to sign up.
Women Register
The women who will act as dates
for signees will register at the League
from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday
of this week and next week in the
Council Room.
Leatrice Keller and Glenn McDan-
iel, co-chairmen of the entertain-
ment committee, say that tryouts for
all freshman organizations interested
in giving skits during intermission
will be held at 4 p.m. Friday in the
League. Appointments for tryouts
may be made with Miss McDaniel.

Skits are not to be longer than five
minutes and should pertain to some
phase of campus life.
Tickets On Sale
The orchestra for the dance has
been selected and will be announced
at a later date. In the meantime,
tickets may be obtained from Miss
Thompson, Obeline Elser, Miss Stan-
ton, Miss McDaniel, Barbara Heym,
Virginia Chandler, Jean Loree, Miss
Keller, Charlotte Haas, Mary Jane
Trainer and Shelby Dietrich. They
are also on sale at the League and
Union desks.
All freshman women who have not
paid their dues as yet are requested
to do so as soon as possible, said Miss

Out of the west last week-out of the great Hollywood silos whose capa-
city for the little golden kernels is astonishingly unlimited came a triumph
which should remain unchallenged for some time in the realm of purest
field corn.
The nastiest part about this film was the fact of the reams of publicity
which had been written about it-blurb which would lead even the most
suspicious to believe that here, at last was something to make Ibsen cough
apologetically and make up hasty excuses for those piffling things he called
plays. The authors-for those of us who want material proof-had been
paid $200,000 for the script, and for the literary group, let us tell you that
this epic got four stars. from Liberty, by gad!
Well, we saw it. It was called "Woman of the Year." And we wish to
report that the one really fine thing about it was its consistency. The pro-
ducers were absolutely impartial in refusing to pass up a single tried and
true situation or line. The great big homey, folksy, verile Ame'rican man;
the sophisticated, she-could -manage-her-
career-but-Che-didn't-know-he-had-a-w ill-
-of-his-own Wife; the extremely funny and
novel gag of the American insulting the







non-English-speaking foreigner, the latter
taking every gibe with a cheery smile; the
little honey chile whose tender innocence
brings the two together in the end.
But the most outrageous of all the trite
scenes which this picture managed to bring
together so charmingly was the pip where,
with the hero and his wife separated, the

offending heroine is brought face-to-face with the realities and responsibili-
ties of marriage by-guess what? Uh huh, a church scene. She stands in
the back with glycerine tears sliding down her pan, and a gruesome old
couple sitting together near her let their hands slide together in one of the
most repulsive gestures any modern movie which we have seen has been
able to produce.
Many of our friends said that the movie was a thing of exquisite beauty
-with both rib-cracking humor and heart-rending tyou will laugh at its
comedy and thrill at its warm, human tenderness!> pathos. Trhe only time
during the whole picture that we fought the tears was the horrible moment
when it occurred to us that we had paid a quarter for that warm, human
On this tender note we will leave you this week, hoping that we have
made your life a little better, a little sweeter, a little more bearable.

The drug store revolution of new
tubes for old is now fully launched.
The government's need for the valu-
able tin found in the flexible metal
tubes in which is encased tooth paste,
shaving cream, ointmints and a host
of other drugs, is being met by a
new law under which no such prod-
uct can be purchased without a
"1rade-in" of a used tube.
According to the proprietor of a
local drug store, the public is, on the
whole, very cooperative and under-
stands the situation. He has been
greatly amused, however, at several
individual reactions.
While most people are quite aware
of the setup, they do not seem to
think it is actually a law, but merely
a voluntary drive such as the one
to collect old newspapers. "Women
a little more than men," said the
lproprietory, seem vague on the sub-
ject and often 'forget' to accompany
their purchase with a used tube. They

To Be Interviewed
All women interested in working

seem almost startled when we 'crack
