President Roosevelt," Ramirez said,
"the Latin American Society has
postponed until further notice the
Pan-American Ball, scheduled for to-
day at the League."
"Anyone wishing a refund on his

The decision to postpone the Ball,
until further notice, overruling a
previous decision to hold the Ball
even in view of the mournful state of
this nation and its sister republics,
came as the result of a special meet-
ing of the Latin-American Society
held last night.

According to a statement made yes-
terday afternoon by George Hall, as-
sistant director of the International
Center, "the Latin American Society
did want to postpone the dance due

total of $112.60, or $4.69 per girl, and
Adelia Cheever followed with $69.05

girl, and Helen Newberry was fifth-

to the death of President Roosevelt,
but because of other obligations, we
are going ahead with arrangements
to hold the dance."
Although the Ball will be postpon-
ed, the Latin Amrerican Society will
meet those "other obligations," Hall

^es were planned as entertainment.

Outing Group
Wil Sponsor
Hike to Forest
With some people, "It's All or
Nethin' ", as the song goes, but with

ways "What's Next?"
The Outing Club has planned a
hike today to Saginaw Forest and
the group will leave from WAB at
12:30 p. m. (EWT), returning in
time for dinner. Those who intend
to accompany the group will bring

Spring Styles I
Feature Shorts4
E ONFIRMED Ann Arborites can ig-
nore the weather when the rains
come, but on those occasional bright
spring days, every coed gets sun con-
scious in a hurry. Sun decks, backt
yards, and tennis courts are fuller'
after one o'clocks than movies oni
Saturday nights.
SUMMER clothes are pulled from1
the depths of the closet and in-I
ventoried, and afternoon shopping
trips are the order of the day. Oft
pourse, rolled up jeans and a shirtl
are practical for tennis, and your
house mates won't mind last season's
paint spotted shorts on the sun-deck,
yet it's lots more fun and not too
expensive to splurge on a fewthings
that you can use now, and all sum-
mer, too.

FIRST on the list of practical but
pretty ensembles for a college
girl are the pleated shorts that have
the same self-repleating trick some
skirts have. They fold up and tuck
away in the corner of a drawer, yet
come out at any time looking as if
they were fresh from the ironing
board. In bright designs, with a
halter top, they'll look equally at
home on the back lawn and at the
SUNDRESSES will be popular for
sunning purposes, too. For in-
stance, there's a two-piecer--a fullj
skirt and a short top with scoop neckI
and slightly puffed sleeves. If you
would like' to get a pre-season tan,
this one will help guard against that
white midriff-brown back look when
you put on your r% two-piece bathing
suit for the first time.
F YOU'D rather be a little more
practical, there are always wash-
able bare-back dresses with short-
sleeved, collarless jackets for cover-
up occasions. Only for the lucky lit-
tle ones, is the pinafore style of
checked gingham, with a wide square
neckline, low back, full skirt and
eyelet-edged ruffles.
F OR THOSE who have said bathing
suits can't get much briefer, we'll
have to throw in a last word about
the newest in two pieces. You'll feel
strongly one way or the other about
this one-your opinion can't be luke-
warm. It's called, accurately enough,
the sarong-diaper suit, and its tech-
nique is strictly crib fashion!
THERE seems to be no shortage of
clever, washable gay sun clothes
this season to make your hours in the
sun as smart as they are fun.
Archery Club
To Enter Meet
Every coed on campus who can
handle a bow and arrow is invited to
register for the WAA archery tour-
nament, which will begin on Tues-
day, April 24.
Entrants may sign up on posters
which will be placed in the WAB,
Barbour Gym, and the League. Mary
Perrone, Archery manager, invited
all participants to practice with the
Archery Club at 4:30 p.m. (EWT)
every Tuesday and Thursday.
Members of the Archery Club will
shoot from May 12 to 19 for the best
scores for the International Tele-
graphic Meet. Ten-member teams
from schools all over the country
send in scores to the central office
in New York. An award is given for
the highest total score, and all teams
are rated by the National Archery
"We hope every archer on campus
comes out and helps us secure an A
rating in the Telegraphic Meet, to
make our own tournament a sue-
cess," Miss Perrone stated.
