Annual Frosh Frolic

Will Be March 13


Union Ballroom

WAAnti c


Yo-ho and a bottle of spirits of
cherry trees, a Ia Washington, after
that welcome breathing spell. It
caused a lapse in the bowling pro-
graijima, so they say, because only
10 of the 67. teams who are partici-
pating in the team bowling tourney
played their matches.
And little D. A. Hendricks has
made exception because of G. Wash-
ington's birthday holiday and has
extended the time to have these
matches'played off until tomorrow,
so get you down to the W. A. B. and
begin to heave those little (?) balls
down the alleys.
Winner in the singles tournament
was veteran Bette Sachs with a score
of 153 2/3 for her average of three
matches. Jane Zimmerman came in
with a very close second with 150 2/3,
while Barbara Alt emerged third
with 136.
Talk about heroes! The Outing
Club group, headed by Libby Mahl-
man, who has been doing a very
"actively" good job-(those kids are
always on the go!) was off to Saline
over Sunday and Monday last, and
walking back Monday noon, three
hostelers saw the roof of a farm-
house catching fire and ran ahead
to give warning. Anti-climax though,
was when the little country fire en-
gine finally came, it went whizzing
right past the house because it
thought the name of the town (?)
was "Acton" instead of "Austin."
P. S. By the time the fire engine got
there, farmers had already ,got the
blaze under control and into smoul-
dering cinders.
The group hiked and the distance
is fourteen long, long miles to Sa-
line; how about those weary feet,
kids? 'Tis said that the most fun
was in the Recreation Hall after
supper Sunday night when the place
looked like a scene from YOU CAN'T
TAKE IT WITH YOU--what with
Indian wrestling in one corner, chop-
sticks on the piano, classics on the
radio, calisthenics in the middle of
the floor, and keep-away and bare-
foot hockey some place in the midst!
To get in on their fun, you're all
invited to a super-duper barn dance
at the W. A. B. Saturday night. Plaid
Wedding Announced
Betty Ann Chaufty, '42SM, .daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin R. Chauf-
ty, and Henry Newton Ohrt, '41BAd.,
of Akron, O., son of Mr. and Mrs.
John B. Ohrt of Houston, Tex., were
married Saturday, Jan.21, in the Ann
Arbor First Methodist Church.

shirts will be the order of the eve-
ning, so come as you are!
Club Basketball is well under way
now, and the round robin tourna-
ment is in progress. Started last
Thursday, Marjorie Hall's team lost
to Arlene Ross's, to the tune of 11 to
47, while Obeline Elser's gang
trounced Virginia Johnson's group,
26-18. With 60 members, and organ-
ized for skilled players, this group is
getting excellent practical experience
within the fold. Teams to play to-
morrow are those of the Misses Hall,
Bercaw, Ross and Elser.
S * *
Tournaments in ping-pong are to
be played in the individual houses
by the first of next week, and names
of the winner and runner-up of each
house are to be turned in to the of-
fice of Barbour Gymnasium Wednes-
day, March 4. From this group the
campus tourney will be drawn and
posted on March 6.
Correction: Ballet Group of the
Dance Club will meet from 7:30 p.m.
to 9 p.m. today and from 3:30 p.m.
to 5 p.m. Friday, instead of times
that appeared in schedule. And thus,
to the end, and so long until soon.

Will Be Headed
By Betty Steffen
The Placement Ibureau, one of sev-
en branches of the Defense Commit-
tee on campus, headed by Betty Stef-
fmen, '42, is expected to get under way
almost immediately.
The purpose of this energetic and
extremely useful sub-committee is to
find out from as many senior wo-
men as possible just what kind of
jobs they would like to find upon
graduation and then to attempt to
place them in positions vacated by
men because of the war, as much in
accordance with their individual pre
ferences as possible.
Blanks will be passed out to all
senior women in dormitories, league
houses, and sororities, and although
they are not compelled to fill them
out, it is expected that most women
will, gcording to Miss Steffen. In
filling out the blanks, the kind of
job wished after graduation should
be included. After the results have
been filed and tabulated, the bureau
will aid senior women in obtaining in-
terviews with companies looking for
This placement bureau is a separ-
ate branch from the University Em-
ployment Office and Bureau of Ap-
pointments. When it was originated,
however, the chairman was aided by
valuable pointers from those in
charge of the University branch.

cessful, its horizon will be enlarged,
and summer positions forundergrad-
uates will be included in its scope.
