Are Due Today
All those who have been partici-
pating in rushing this semester are
reminded by Jane Graham, '43, rush-
ing secretary, to turn in their pref-
erence slips by noon today at the
office of the Dean of Women.
The preference slips were inclosed
with the first open house invitations
and were to be retained by the rushee
until today.
Anyone who has lost her slip is
advised to obtain another from the
rushing booth as soon as possible.
Then she should fill out the slip as
instructed thereon and place it in the
designated box at the Dean of Wo-
men's Office at Barbour Gym.
This should be done by the rushee
well before noon, according to Miss
Graham, because slips turned in later
than that time will not be accepted.
Every perso.n who turns in a pref-
erence slip should return to the rush-
ing booth in the League between 10
a.m. and 6 p.m. Saturday to call for
their bids to membership. Every per-
son who calls at the booth will re-
ceive a white envelope whether she
is bid to a sorority or not, adds Miss
Graham, so no girl should feel reti-
cent about asking for her bid.
The rushing season will come to a
close with house pledging ceremonies
to take place at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Nancy Upson
Finds Practice
Makes Perfect
"Strong ankles are not an essential
to one aspiring to be a figure skater
but practice is," says Nancy Upson,
'44, winner of several lower Michigan
amateur titles in both ice-dancing
and figure skating.',
Miss Upson will be a soloist in the
"Carniva' International," to be spon-
sored by the Ann Arbor Figure Skat-
ing Club at 8 p.m. Sunday, at the
Coliseum. She will present her well
known top-hat number and will lead
the WAA Figure Skating Club in a
sailor number in the finale, also.
She began to figure skate five years
ago, having never been on even plain
skates before then, but Miss Upson
made up for lost time. She practices
12 to 15 hours a week while in Ann
Arbor, and this summer at Sault Ste.
Marie she worked eight to ten hours
a day for five weeks.
Besides practice Miss Upson might
owe her success to a love for music
and dancing, and she is a music
major in the literary school now.
"Figure skating embodies everything
all in one-it's dancing, a sport, mu-
sic, and art," claims Miss Upson,
"there's nothing like it."
She has skated in carnivals all over
this country and has solded in several
recently, besides having been in one
in Windsor, Ontario. At this point,
Miss Upson has passed four United
States Figure Skating Association
tests, and is working on her "Gold
Dance test."
For the past three summers she
has studied at Lake Placid, N.Y. and
Sault Ste. Marie under renowned
teachers including her present ad-
visor, Pierre Brunet, four times world
champion an~d twice Olympic cham-
pion for figure skating.
Miss Upson, who intends to do ex-
hibition work and then some day go
into competition, mentioned that she
enjoys her dancing numbers much
more than executing ordinary figures.
An "Ann Arbor girl" until just re-
cently when her parents moved to
Pittsburgh, Pa., Miss Upson has been
active in many activities on campus.

down without reply. The professor
tried again. "What's the matter-
couldn't you make the ten o'clock
section today?" The anonymous face
lit up in a sort of vague recognition.
"Oh. isn't this the ten o'clock sec-
tion?" The professor was gentle. "No,
this is the nine o'clock" The charac-
ter made his way out. As he reached
the door, he was halted by the profes-
sor's vcice. saying this time, "You
can stay if you want to." He didn't
stay. "I know I have a class some-
where this hour." He left to find out
which one it was.
