To Be Best
"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, andeRobert Getts, '43E,
ticket co-chairmen said.
There will be a shortage of tickets
this year so that the Sports Building
may be more enjoyable for those at-
tending, In view of this, tickets may
be purchased tomorrow by seniors

to go to their own dance," Getts an-
nounced. The sale will continue to-
morrow until all tickets are gone.

Are Best For Motor
The season for picnics has finally
arrived and the season for Motor

er-alls, overalls and what-have-you
than most of you would ever have
For the female mechanic, a sug-
gestion of denim coveralls usually hits
the nail on the head, and they're
made now so that they're becoming
enough to use for your picnics and
outings too. We have one outfit in
mind that is beautifully tailored, has
snappy metal buttons, and four
roomy patch pekets which always
come in so handy.
Another model available is a sleeve-
less coverall, under which you can
wear a cool, fresh blouse, or if you
want a sun-tan, no blouse at all. If
you want to try your hand at mak-
ing a slack set, there's an easy pat-
tern which has a snappy bolero to
slip over the sun-back top. It's
trimmed with giant ric rac all the
way around, too.

Petites Pommes de Terre
The highest form of anything on Michigan's campus-or any other
campus for that matter-is recognition of one's abilities and fine traits and
general felicity for humanity by one of the University's honorary societies.
Since the tapping season is close upon us, and it is possible that freshmen
who have not trodden the hallowed way of the BMOC are not initiated into
the mysteries of the honorary society, it might be well at this time to give a
full and complete account of these institutions which do so much to brighten
the lives of aspiring young students.
The first sign which one has of honorary societies comes long, long be-
fore the tapping itch is upon the members. It is traceable in every cam-
pus fraternity house early in the fall. Everywhere, wise heads bend over
the ears of the juniors, and anyone viewing them from afar would say the
venerable seniors were whispering sage counsel into the young brothers'
ears--words of wisdom designed to shape and guide their future lives. And
so they are.
"Now listen to me, jerk," they are whispering. "I've got you in good
and solid with the Pyramids, (Junior Honorary Society) and now it's up to
you. You don't wanta just hang around this campus picking daisies. A nice'
clean-up on a few good positions; that's what we want. And that's what
"I've got a good start," one of the unitiated remarks. "I've been working
like a dog over at the Michigan Melee-All The Humor of The Campus
Told The Spicy Way office. If I get to be editor, that ought to let me in."
The senior looks at him, his eyes widening with horror. Obviously
amazed that here in Ann Arbor, in that hub of civilization, there could be
walking the public streets a man ignorant of a cardinal fact of life, he
gropes for the light.
G;etting It All Straight ..
"You don't know much about honorary societies, do~you?" he says, and
to the negative proceeds to explain that although honorary societies cop-
scientiously reward any fine work or noble effort, impartially, that never-
theless, it simply isn't precedent for an editor of Michigan Melee to be in
the honorary society. So the young aspirant switches and starts to work
on the Junior Conservative Club Council. Naturally, he make the honorary
society, because he does fine work in the right place.
As to the final meeting of the honorary societies wherein the choice
is made as to tappees, we have our own ideas on them, too. Once called, the
business proceeds at a regular pace, no doubt,with names being proposed, a
few comments being offered after each proposal, such as, "He's the Michi-
gan World Telegram editor, isn't he? Certainly, he's all right."

Plans For 'Sportsday', To Be
Saturday, Are Near Completion
Plans are being completed for the
WAA "Sportsday" to be held at 9
a.m., Saturday at the WAB ald Pal-
mer Field, according to Bette Sachs,
'43, general chairman of the affair.
Friendly tournaments among wo-
men from various nearby colleges
and a University team will make
up the day's program of events.
Three contestants from each college
attending will be required to enter
each contest. At Palmer Field the
following tournaments will be played:
fencing, badminton, tennis and arch-

Three contestants from each col-

the guests at 12:30 p.m. at the WAB.
Every out-of-town guest at "Sports-
day" will be accompanied during the
day by one of the members of the
WAA Board or by members of the
various clubs of the organization.

Pictured above, however, is just
the thing to help you keep your tem-

bucking any old storm, whether you
liked the idea before or not.
This outfit has probably been seen
around by most of you, because it is
so practical and so flattering. It
comes in natural or in any of the
very popular pastels and has the ex-

panied by a smaller edition of them-
