Risking the possibility of contract-
ing Michigan's favorite illness, the
measles, Gordon Hardy and his
eleven-piece band will play for this
year's Freshman Project, which goes
under the forbidding title, "Spot
Hop," and will be held from 9 p.m.
to midnight, Saturday, April 18, in
the League Ballroom.
Joan Reutter, winner of the title
"Miss Michigan of Song," is regular
vocalist with Hardy's orchestra and
,will do several numbers during the
"Hop," which is an annual informal
dance sponsored and presented by
the freshman women.
Besides playing for the regular
week-end dances which are held in
the League every Friday and Satur-
day, Hardy and his fairly new, but
well-known band have played for
such campus highlights as "Blackfoot
Ball," the "Wolverine Hop," and the
"Defense Stomp." He also features
"Doc" Sprachlin on the male vocals,
a quintet within his band, similar to
the one originated by Goodman, and
is reputed to excel on the piano him-
Tickets for the dance are now on
sale at the Union and League desks
and will go on general campus-wide
sale beginning Wednesday. They may.
also be obtained from central com-
mittee members of the project.
Decorations will consist of carica-
tures of certain BMOC's and BWOC's
on campus who have either had the
measles or have been closely con-
nected with them in some way or
another. Among those to be featured
are Buck Dawson, Jay McCormick,
Bob Sibley and Dr. Brace of Ye Olde
Health Service. The women will not
be neglected however, with Marny
Gardner, Charlotte Thompson, Jane
Connell and Dr. Margaret Bell, rep-
resenting them.
Also featured in the scheme of

Symptoms of the dread disease will

novel record has been prepared which
will announce these dances at the
appropriate times to relieve Union
sophomores from this tiresome job.
Free ginger ale, coffee and cookies

Taking a tip from various cut-rate

and also from the highly successful
Soph Prom of last year, ticket sales
this time will not be' the barren,
colorless things that ticket sales us-
ually are. A stub will be attached to
each of the cardboards purchased,
on which will be printed the names
of four of the biggest "name" bands
in the country. The purchaser may
check his choice and drop the stub

"Since it is probable that this will
be the last Senior Ball for the dura-
tion of the war, we want it to be the
best that Michigan has ever had,
and the "Pick-Your-Band" poll is a
part of making it the best," Lee
Cleary, '42, and Robert Getts, '42E,
tickets chairmen said.
On the first day of sale, which will
start officially at 1 p.m.. tickets may
,be purchased by seniors only, and
idcntification cards must be shown.
"It is not necessary that you bring
your own identification card," Getts
added, "but one must be punched for
every ticket sold, to insure seniors
having the first chance to go to their
own ball.
Fewer Tickets Sold
Fewer tickets will be sold than last
year, it was also announced, so that
the Sports Building will not be too
crowded for dancing. An outdoor
dancefloor will also be erected if the
weather permits.
Price of tickets will be $3.63, plus
37 cents for government War Tax.
The results of the "Pick-Your-Band"

'Times Have CertainlyChanged,
Says Mrs. Bishop, Class Of '77


"Everything was so different then,
that it is almost impossible to com-
pare the 'Michigan Coed' of today
with any Michigan woman of my
class," said Mrs. H. H. Bishop. (Har-
riet Holman, '77) of Ann Arbor.
Hailing from Flint, which inci-
dentally was a quiet little lumbering
town, Mrs. Bishop entered the Uni-
versity in 1873. She was a member
of the third coeducational class at
Women Got Warm Welcome
sThe reception of women bythe in-
stitution on the whole was quite
warm. , Most members of the faculty
favored education for women. Those
who disapproved generally reacted
towards them personally in a very in-
different manner, without being rude.
The college men were of all types, as
they are today. Generally they dis-
played chivalry, tipped their hats to
the coeds, and treated them with ut-
most respect.
Some were extremely rude however
and wouldn't step off the sidewalk
and generally attempted to make life
miserable for the courageous women.
The Class of '75 gloated over the fact
that it was the last class to graduate
without women. Their efforts proved
in vain because the type of Michigan
woman of that day "was above such
petty insults."
A Gay Life Indeed!'
The women displayed a sensible at-
titude about their novel position.
They were all serious-minded and
fully appreciative of their advan-
tages. They wished to avoid any pub-
lic display of their existence and thus
alienate women of college age who
were unable to attend the Univer-
Although the business of attending
the University was to study, the wo-
men did enjoy a moderate social life.
TheOratorical series was in existence
even then and the women attended
all of the lectures. "We all had plenty
of boy-friends" and received callers
on Friday evenings. The rest of the
evenings were devoted entirely to
the books.
For exercise, the women took long
To Hold Open House
The board of Patronesses and Resi-
dents of Betsy Barbour House have
invited faculty members, parents and
friends to an "At Home" from 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. today. At this time the
students have the pleasure of taking
the guests through the building,
which has been completely redecor-
ated and has many improvements
which were made during the last



walks. In warm weather, the favor-
ite pass-time was canoeing on the
river. They would arise at 5 a.m.,
meet the boys on the sidewalk in
front of the house, and walk down
to the river for a day of violent (?)
Teaching was practically the onlyI
career open to the class of '77. Wo-
man's suffrage was in the air al-
though it had made no great head-
way. A few extremely courageous
souls had entered the Law and Medi-
cal schools but their numbers were
They Studied Then
The curriculum was far different.
Courses were entirely optional. Mrs.
Bishop chose mainly Greek, Latin,
French, German and mathematics.
Text books were few, but what they
were offered, they fully mastered.
Students were taught to think for
themselves and they weren't offered
material that was fully digested pre-
viously by someone else.
Mrs. Bishop said "we had a lovely
time." She will always be proud of
the fact that she was one of the early
woman graduates of the University
of Michigan.
