Detroit Orchestra Will Appear
At League Dance tomorrow

Tomorrow night's dance in the
ballroom of the Michigan League
will feature a new band hitherto
unknown to Ann Arbor, Jimmy
Strauss and his orchestra from De-
According to Bill Sawyer, Strauss's
smooth styled tempos offer a style of
rhythm that is both different and
pleasing. Strauss has appeared re-
cently before sororities, fraternities,
most of Detroit's dance clubs and at
the University of Indiana.
Strauss promises to play the kind
of music which will inspire students
to study for final examinations. Saw-
yer's orchestra will be at the League
tonight and next Friday and Satur-
Plans are being made for an infor-
mal dance to be held the Saturday
following V-Ball. This will be a
dance to round out the biggest week-
end of the year.
Riding Clubs
Popular at 'U,
2 Organizations Provide Coeds
With Equestrian Opportunities
"Boot, saddle, to horse, and away,"
cried Robert Browning 'way back in
1850, and the modern coed has taken
his word to heart when she rides
with one of the two WAA sponsored
riding clubs.
Crop and Saddle, now headed by
Pat Coulter, '45, was the first riding
club founded at the University. It is
noted throughout Michigan as one
of the best riding clubs composed of
undergraduates. Having participated
- in many horse shows, the club pos-
sesses a large collection of ribbons
and cups won by the members. How-
ever, in the last two years, the
demand for membership in the Crop
and Saddle has so far exceeded the
capacity for new members, that an
auxiliary riding club has been
TheUniversity Women's Riding
Club, as the 'little sister' of the Crop
and Saddle was titled, is designed for
the less experienced riders, and has
grown up into an active and flour-
ishing organization. It is now headed
by Kit Hammond, '44.
Each club is limited to 20 members
and meets once a week for rides. On
these rides, lessons are given. The
primary aim of these organizations
is to improve the horsemanship of
coeds. Once a year, in the spring, the
two clubs sponsor a Horse Show, in
which members and other riders i j
Ann Arbor participate.
Try-outs for Crop and Saddle and
IJWRC will be held at the beginning
of the coming semester, and all coeds
who have had some riding experience
and who believe that they couldl
qualify for one of these clubs are
urged to come out.;

Although the WAB bowling alleys
have been closed for the rest of this
semester, women may sign up now
on the bulletin boards at the WAB

held during the first weeks of the
spring semester, Ginny Dodd, bowl-
ing manager, announced yesterday.
The alleys will reopen March 6,
and managers and pin-girls are ex-
pected to continfe working on their
scheduled days. If classes interfere
with the days on which women have
registered to work at the alleys, the
women thus affected are asked to
notify Miss Dodd immediately so that
new, arrangements may be made.
The Badninton Club will hold an
open singles and doubles tournament
early next semester for women only,
and those interested are asked to
sign up on the bulletin boards at the
WA or Barbour Gym now so that
the matches may be arranged imme-
diately, According to Madeline Vib-
bert, badminton manager.
Play will begin March 7.

Livelihood for Peace and Quiet
Someone must have killed two birds with one stone, because two little
chickens have vanished somewhere between a certain women's dormitory
and a certain sorority house.
The chicks were orignally the property of two certain little coeds who
revolted against the dormitory's failure to serve eggs for breakfast and,
besides, .ust loved chicken-in-the-rough. But after some 24 hours of
chicken-farming the hens almost had coeds-in-tyre-routgli. Moral: 'Chick-
ens cannot be raised in a dormitory room.
Chicks "Breed" Trouble
The little 16-cent chicks were cute to look at in the department store
incubator, but once in the possession of the coeds they turned out to bV
birds of another feather.
The trouble started when another coed, whom we will call Coed III.
came unknowingly upon the chicken farm one midnight. She nosed about.

the room for a while and then laid
the cards on the table. "I could swear
I heard a chicken peeping," she said.
"It was just me," said Coed I.
"Peep, peep!"
"And me," said Coed if, the other
chicken-farmer. "We're singing a
duet. Peep, peep!"
"Well, shut up," retorted III, and
she stormed out of the room.
But not for long. Only five min-
utes passed, and back stormed III.
"Who's playing a flute?" she asked.
this time a rustling sound came out
of the closet, so III turned detective
and plowed in.
Dorm Detective
If papers belonged on top of waste-
baskets instead in inside them, III
might have never discovered the
source of the disturbance, but as it
was, she picked up the paper.
Out jumped a Rhode Island Red
. . . and it wasn't a Communist.
Soon te rest of the corridor had
gathered to witness the new hobby,
and the chickens put on quite a per-
But, at 1 a.m., before an 8 o'clock,
everyone, even a Michigan coed, likes
to sleep, and chickens presumably
have different ideas. And those ideas
kept at least two coeds in a rather
sad state all through the night.
Birds Get Brushoff
So in the morning the coeds pack-
ed up the birds and shipped them to
a certain sorority house, which has
as yet failed to receive them. A
Daily reporter recently called the
house and asked if anything had
hatched out of the mail situation.
and the reply was, nothing.
Which all goes to show that, al-
though a bird in the hand may be
worth two in the bush to most peo-
ple, University coeds should leave
them in the bush.

Registration for the Marc h
blood bank which will he held at
the Women's Athletic Building
March 9 and 10 will continue this
week in Miss Ethel McCormick's
office at the Michigan League.
One hundred women are needed
to fill the quota; and so far, 54
women have volunteered. .
"Many women have come into
the office to register, but when
they learned that the blood bank
will be held the first week of clas-
ses in the new semester and real-
ized that they did not know what
their schedules would be," Miss !
McCormick said.
