Union To Give
Last InformalI
Party Of Year
Sawyer's Band To End Season
With 'Final Fling'; To Feature
New Novelty Arrangements
Pre-exam blues need not be, says
Chuck Dotterrer, '44E, of the Union
Executive Council. He went on to
explain that the Union is taking care
of this dread malady by a "Final
Fling," a dance to end all dances-
The last Union dance will be held
from 9 p.m. to midnight May 16, in
the ballroom. Bill Sawyer will play
for the dance and he has promised
several new arrangements and novel-
ty numbers.
Because of the foresight of the Un-
ion Executive Council, 1000 ice cream
cones have been stored in a special
vault in the sub-basement of the
Union, to be used Saturday night to
refresh the many students who are
planning to attend.
These cones will be distributed in
an unlimited quantity at a special
dairy bar erected in the ballroom and
they will.be served by expertly trained
Union fountain men.
The results of a recent extensive
faculty survey conducted by the effi-
cient Union polling service, reveal
that 97.6 per cent of the polled facul-
ty members believe that for maxi-
mum efficiency on final exams, it
is absolutely essential that every
student spend at least one evening
before exams dancing at the Union
to Bill Sawyer's band.
This dance will conclude the series
of informal dances sponsored by the
Union. As has been featured before,
the vocalist with the band will be
Gwen Cooper, and the other mem-
bers of the band will entertain indi-
No definite plans have been made
for Union dances during the summer
season but it is hoped that the dance
series every Friday and Saturday
night will be resumed next fall.

coin and make a perfect gift for
birthday or graduation.N

Belies Rainy Day Mood

Raincoats Offer
Fashion Appeal
And Protection
Since Ann Arbor is bound to have
its share of "California Dew" this ap-
proaching summer semester, you will
find that a lightweight summer rain-
coat will be a important item on your
wardrobe list.
Among the pastel styles that have
been so popular this spring, you no
doubt will see the latest oil silk or
cellophane models creating new fav-
or. Chemically treated to resist rain,
they are light enough to be folded
and sandwiched among your books,
handy to whip out at ai unexpected
Rain Coats Are Military
Like all apparel that is reflecting
the war influence, rain clothes have
gone a la militaire in cape styles
resembling those worn by the men at
West Point. This effect is brought
out in the shoulder length capes at-
tached to the full length coat, or in
the dress length styles with boxy
The latter style is versatile enough
to be worn as a casual daytime pro-
tector on campus or as an evening
cape, thrown over the shoulders of
your summer formal.
Coats Are Lightweight
These lightweight fabrics, however,
are not confined to use in rain capes;
coat styles have them too. Either in
box styles with fly front zippers or
buttons or belted-in models, they
come in a variety of colors. One
shade that is fast gaining favor is
the box coat of ice blue that looks
as cool as it feels.
It can be worn comfortably on cool
days, with sleeves pushed up cardi-
gan-style and white dickey collar
turned down over the coat collar.
Neutral whites also have wide-spread
campus appeal because they wash
easily and go well with any colored

but it must be that we live right, because Lantern Night event off without a
In fact, everything was perfect despite some external aspects--a gang
of young rascals, playing cops and robbers on the field, some barking- dogs
and various and sundry other noises, which just reminded the audience
that they were out in the wide open spaces.
It couldn't have been an easy job for the three judges to decide the
winners of the Sing, because every house made a nice showing. Topping it
all though was the performance of Kappa Sigma, winner of Interfraternity
Sing, which house sang "Vesper Hymn"-and it was really wonderful! The
weaker sex offers praise where it is due.

The veritable Eleanor Holms on campus staged a little of their own
competition last week at the Union Pool. The Swimming Club, now num-
bering 20 members under the guidance of Oriel Straehly, '45, finished the
season with a meet. Piling up the top honors was Gloria Fisher, '45. In the
25-yard freestyle Gloria Fisher took first place, Susie Lovett came in right
behind, and Emmie Gregg, '45, finished in third place.
Pat McGraw came in as winner of the sidestroke event, followed by
Hazel Reuttinger, '45, and Gloria Fisher. In the 25-yard back crawl, Gloria
Fisher was topper again, Suzie Lovett and Emmie Gregg taking the second
and third honor spots.
Winning sprinters in the 50-yard freestyle event were Gloria, first
again, Hazel Reuttinger and Suzie Lovett. Final event of the day was a
relay event, consisting of competition among teams of three people.
Gloria, Mary Ann Eibler, '45, and Dotty Servis, '45, made up the winning
While the girls rested, Alex Canja, '44; diver on the varsity swimming
team, gave an exhibition and then explained certain rules of meets.

If-we don't get a break from those black clouds pretty soon, those in
the tennis finals will be playing matches from morning to night to finish
before exams. Softball teams are having the same trouble, but the final
winners should be out soon, since but two more games remain to be played.
Retiring after 41 years of service in the men's Physical Education Dt-
partment, Dr. George H. May was honored by the men of the department
and the women of the Physical Education Department at a banquet yester-
day at Barton Hills Country Club.
Doc May has a place in the hearts of the women on campus, because
it's he who gets us out of the rain in sudden downpours and transports us,
equipment and all, to Barbour gym-plus a million and one other favors,

Well, with only fragments of news left, it's about time we retired for
the year. It's been wonderful fun and thanks for list'nin. Maybe we'll see
you around this summer. Hasta la vista!

International Center Aids Foreign
Students With English Language


, v,

Little-known to the campus at
large, but nevertheless a potent fac-
tor in establishing the best possible
relations between foreign students
and a university new to them, is the
English language service handled by
Miss Sarah Grollman at the Inter-
national Center.
Small and soft-voiced, Miss Groll-1
man gives individualized attention!
to the difficulties of her pupils from
Monday through Friday all year
Orientation Is Keynote
Orientation is the keynote of her
instruction, for she says lack of abil-
ity to express themselves in the Eng-
lish language causes much feeling of
insecurity among foreign students,
many of whom are professional men
of note in their own countries. Con-
sequently the aim is to help the stu-
dent understand the spoken word,
and to give him a correct pronuncia-
tion of speech melody and rhythms
so that he may be understood by
For instance, classes are held for
medical students to prepare for situ-
ations which arise during their work,
whether it be neuro-surgery, thoracic
surgery, general surgery, public
health, or special medical research.
Other preparation is given for stu-
dents of dentistry, law, business ad-
ministration, engineering, philosophy
College Life Differs
In Summer Session
The first comment that a summer
school student usually makes - a
student who attends the college in
its regular session - is that it's so
Most people agree that the general
atmosphere is decidedly changed.
Whether this change is an improve-
ment is entirely a matter of opinion.
This evident difference is caused by
the shuffling process that occurs-
sorority women occupy dorms, dorm
residents try league house life, and
thousands of students from other
colleges add to the general mele.
Many of the social boundaries are
dropped for the summer months and,
along with the heat, there is a general
let-up in formality and conventionali-
ties. Perhaps it's tat the enrollment
is smaller that one finds one's self
saying "hello" to everyone on the Diag
if only his necktie is familiar.
The pace seems to be slower- that
is, there seems to be more time to do
what you want - and what you want
are usually long afternoons of swim-
ming, canoeing and long, cold

and undergraduate studies in the Col-
lege of Literature, Science and the
Language Is Dynamic
Miss -Grollman's comment on her
English instruction was that "lan-
guage represents the expression of the
whole personality and is a constant-
ly growing and changing process."
Students are taught to express in
English the experiences they have
had in their daily life, which means
that each one has a different lan-
guage problem. The doctors learn
what the English phrases are when
he asks his patient what is wrong,
as well as what to say when he goes
into a restaurant or takes a taxi.
The same goes with dentists when
they want to say, "Open wide," or
engineers when they are demonstrat-
ing a problem.
Class work is oral, and no com-
position is offered, mostly because
the primary need is ability to speak,
but also because one can easily write
in a language if he knows how to
speak it.
During the last two years, the
Center's English instruction service
has accommodated 200 students, per-
ceptibly raising the standard of Eng-
lish spoken among foreign students
here, and greatly contributing to the
success of their work.

Let's hope it doesn't rain all the

more popular.

New Personalities



By Spring's Warm, Sunny Days
* - .-

It's either the season of the year
or the fact that finals will soon be
a thing of the past that has imbued
many dormitory residents with a cer-
tain vigor, heretofore a little foreign
to their conduct of the past eight
These days, blessed by Ra and all
his glory, have seen literally hundreds
of said students cut down their win-
dow drapes to size, shellac them-
selves with potent little potients of
olive oil, vinegar, avocado extract,
and cold cream and beat speedy
tracks for the nearest vitamin D-
bathed retreats to embellish them-
selves with a glow that has previous-
ly come to them in a compact with a
wet sponge.
Gain Patterned Tans
Those who aren't forunate in hav-
ing Stockwell's ideal sun deck, have
hied themselves to fire escapes, even,
through the bars of which the sun
rays filter, and the latest in waffle-
weave burns can be obtained. And
how Palmer Field is teaming with
physical culturists: Tennis, archery,
golf, baseball-all for the purpose of

way you like) for the approaching
Within the confines of them vine-
covered walls, how spring has caused
veritable neighborly benevolence to
crop out among the occupants. No
trouble at all to bum ANYTHING

chalantly tripped in a friend's cell
the other day to deliver a whole, new

ment for the "five I borrowed last

they hand it over when you have
come at last, clutching a towel and
slapping a bare foot in the water-
soaked spot with impatience!
But the season's influence really
engulfed one individual, who, evi-
dently having just received a tender
call from THE man, sauntered from
her room and lanquidly gazing into,
the eyes of a passing chum declared
in a rich, sonorous tone, "I don't
know what it is about you . . your
eyes, your hair, your pan . . . but I
LOVE YOU!! And she withdrew as
quietly as she ctame.
No Gripes, No Groans
Yes, Spring's arrival has taken its
toll. Nothing fazes anyone. Not even
the failure of the dorm elevators to
function can wrest the usual lamen-
tations and curses.
"C'mon, kids," these feminine voices
chirp, "the bird cage is on the blink
again. I'll race you upstairs to the
fifth floor!"
Such singular activities occur at
the end of every school season, and
this year is having its share of stu-
dent transitions in accordance with
the approach of summer vacation
in view.
Plane Replaces Cat

sey's scloolteacher 9 are going into
the first grles to "air condition"
"See the plane.
"The plane has wings.
"The plane can fly."

Travelers Join
Youth Hostels
Young men and women who enjoy
the simple outdoor life are turning
'more and more to youth hosteling.
For those who like to hike, or bicycle,
the youth hostel movement offers a
wonderful vacation at a very low
cost. The only requirement for mem-
bership is that you "travel under your
own steam."
Since the first hostel was opened'
in the United States in 1934, the
movement has spread until there are
now almost three hundred hostels in
the country, and over 15,000 mem-
Hostels are located about fifteen
miles apart and extend across the
United States, some trails taking in
early landmarks and places of in-
terest such as battlegrounds, Indian
pueblo villages, southern Californian
missions, plantations, and scenic won-
ders such as the Grand Canyon, Yo-
semite, Yellowstone, Glacier and
other national parks.
Individual passes may be had for
one dollar by writing to the AYH
Headquarters in Northfield, Mass.
For those who wish to travel in a
group, family or group passes are
available. A pass also entitles you to
a year's subscription of the AYH
Knapsack, the official guidebook,
which describes and .gives the loca-
tion of the various hostels, gives in-
formation about the AYH sponsored
trips under qualified leaders, and the
Rolling Youth Hostels.
The advent of war has put a crimp
in the 4,200 link chain in Europe, but
AYH leaders are attempting to start
chains in Central and South America.'
