Junior Girls

Play Honors
Senior Women.
Annual Feature Is Produced,
Acted, Directed Completely
By Student Committees
An annual feature of the school
year is the Junior Girls' Play, pre-
sented by the women of the junior
class in honor of their graduating
senior sisters.
Written, directed, produced, and
acted by members of the junior class,
the play is presented in Lydia Men-
delssohn theatre three times, the first
'for seniors only,' and the second and
third nights to a regular audience.
In former days, the play even trav-
eled in to the Cass theatre in De-
troit to play for the parents of the
coeds, but since the war, the juniors
have limited their expeditions to vis-
iting army camps.
Take It From There'
Last year the class of 1946 gave the
play 'Take It From There,' a scene
of which will be given at the Fresh-
man Rally. The theme was a futur-
istic college, and the difficulties that
an investigating committee encoun-
tered there. Other themes have been
a 'take-off' on Alice in Wonderland,
a 'Trip to France' and several cos-
tume comedies.
This year the Junior Play will be
given during the first semester, in
contrast to the usual March or April
date. The dates this year are, ten-
tatively, January 16, 17 and 18. The
committees have already been chosen,
with the exception of a few offices,
and these will be filled during the fall
semester. The script committee has
been preparing the play, and the re-
hearsal and tryouts for the produc-
tion will take place as soon in the
semester as possible.
Senior Antics
On the night of the Senior Per-
forinance the seniors attend in house
blocks, dressed in their caps and
gowns. A ceremony in which the en-
gaged seniors contribute a lemon to
the wishing well, a married senior, a
candle, and unattached women a
penny for eachunengaged year takes
place before the actual play. Other
senior antics include the singing of
their Junior play songs, and a skit
put on by the War Council. One of
the most important events of Senior
Night is in the announcing of the
new president of the League Council.
°The committees for the 1946 Junior
Play are as follows: GeneralChair-
man, Carolyn Daley; Assistants, Ruth
McMorris; Jean Raine, director; Eal-
eanor Stewart, secretary-treasurer,
assisted by Barbara Dewey; Stage
Crew is directed by Janet Young;
Music, Elain Raiss, Marion Sharkey
and Rose Dederain; Script, Barbara
Brady, Lois Kelso, Jan Carter; Cho-
reographer, Janice Bernstein; Tick-
ets, Virginia Councell and Carol Sie-
The list continues with Costumes,
Mary Cochran; Scenery by Virginia
Scott; Make-up, Shirley Hansen;
Publicity, Doris Krueger and Lynne
Ford; Ushering, Katheran Cowan;
Programs, Ann Kutz.

New Neckline
Jewelry Wins
This season neckline jewelry is the
most popular.
The new choker style originated last
spring, when a fashion model wanted
a chunky but sporty necklace and
found a Ubangi ringlet which ekactly
suited the purpose. The buyers caught
up the fashion, and since then choker
necklaces have zoomed into promi-
nence. Fashion magazines show chok-
er lecklaces with the majority of their
clothes this year.
Choker necklaces come in all
shapes and sizes, far surpassing the
plainness of the black velvet ribbon
which our grandmothers used for
adornment. However, the smart
women of today occassionally borrow
a ribbon from this same grandmother
and wear it decorated with their favo-
rite jewel.
Pearls Are Popular
Modern choker manufacturers pre-
fer pearls, although the strands may
be single, double or triple. Some of
the pearls are multi-colored with
bands of black or white. Tiny pearl
earrings to match these chokers may
be purchased. If you really have a
passion for pearls, you might be able
to find one of the new pearl rings to
complete your jewelry ensemble.
Metal jewelry makers, not to be
outdone by the pearl dealers, offer
snake-chain necklaces which may be
worn with high-necked sweaters and
dresses. These metal necklaces, like
their sisters of pearl, come in single
or double strands, but the single gold
mesh one has proved to be the most
popular. .
Variations of this gold chain may
be found with a string of pearls inter-
twined about it. One clever coed com-
bined a string of ebony bead, a string
of pearls, and a string of corals to
produce a strikingly different effect.
Single Large Jewels
A fashion originated by Louise La-
Valiere, lady of the court of Louis
II of France, is the single large jewel
or stone hung from a necklace. Fash-
ion-minded women will recognize her
name in our modern version of our
necklace, lavaliere. 1945 stresses the
lavaliere. Especially prominent are
single topaz, emeralds, or aqua-ma-
rines (real or make-believe) strung
on a slender gold chain that may
double as a choker.
Coeds who have sweethearts in the
South Pacific will often find them-
selves the pleased recipients of in-
tricately carved wooden beads, hand-
worked by the natives. These beads
usually reach to the waist line, but
the truly bright coed will restring
them on a firmer strand and make
not only a necklace but a bracelet as
Laundry Case
Is Handy Item
Everyone knows that a girl's' best
friend is her mother, but unfortu-
nately, we cannot take our mothers
to college with us. Therefore, we can
do the next best thing: we can take
the closest link to home and mother
-a laundry case.
This handy little container which
rides the rails between here and
home about twice a month may be of
almost any size or shape and should
have a reversible address card and a
good strong strap around it.
Nothing so cheers the hard work-
ing coed as a package from home.
The laundry case is better than an
ordinary package because, besides
holding food, soap flakes, cigarettes
and other necessary items, you may
also occasionally get some clean

Therefore, my advice to you is, if
you live any reasonable distance from
Ann Arbor, be sure to provide your
self with-yes, you guessed it-a
laundry case!

Cosmetic Manufacturers Choose
Splashy Colors for 1945 Make-Up

The cosmetic manufacturers have
begun the 1945 season with a splash
of color in lipsticks, rouges and pow-
For those constantly searching for
the 'right' color of lipsticks, one house
has neatly solved the problem by plac-
ing a color called 'Right Red" on the
market. A brilliant, true red, the
color is designed to go with the
most popular fall colors.
A new hair lacquer with colors to
blend in with the hair is another fea-
ture. This 'stickum' keeps the way-
ward strands of haid securely fasten-
ed for the new upsweep and Psyche
hairdos. The advantage of the color-
ing matter added, is that there is no
unpleasant shine of unmatching lac-
Nail polishes have responded to the
bright autumn colors, and one of the
newest shades is called 'Fatal Apple'
Advertised as 'the colour of Eve', it

it a light clear red that is very ef-
fective against siren black and darker
One of the manufacturers must
have read 'Alice in Wonderland' re-
cently for his house sponsors a nail
polish called Dark Knight'. A deep
maroon, the shade blends in very
well with the light blue and rose, as
well as the newest color shade,
'Winter Wine.'
4 The occasional 'hard' look that
comes from a too careless use of a
makeup is corrected by another firm
that puts out a 'soft-focus' kit. This
package contains lipstick, rough rouge
and powder, the latter being in a new
compressed form that prevents leak-
Handy additions to any wardrobe
and a college classic are pigskin gloves
which may be worn for class or dress

STOCKWELL HALL-as seen from the air. The largest of the women's dormitories will house 414 coeds this
year. Originally built to house 388 women, the dorm was named for Madelon Louise Stockwell, first coed to
matriculate at the University. The hall was opened to residents in February, 1940.
Orientation Period Provides Hectic Schedule
With Health Exams, Registration, Counselors

I . .1

It all started way back in the sum-
mer when you were a prospective
student of the University of Michi-
gan, Various and sundry notices, bul-
letins and important-looking slips be-
gan to arrive informing you of your
group number, your meeting place,
and the hectic time-schedule you
would follow.
You probably drove your family to
the state of actually looking forward
to your departure, but they tried to
understand - You were GOING TO
On the other hand, that flood of
mail may not have disturbed your
calm equilibrium. You already had
been to college, and you were mere-
ly going to transfer. But before
you had -a chance to wonder for a
long period of time, you found
yourself on the way..
Most of it is still to come. You've
already met your roommate, and if
she got here first, she grabbed the
best bed, dresser, desk and man. And
now orientation is well underway and
we've a suitable definition of the
same, direct from Grandpa Webster's
treatise on horse fleas, but here goes.
Orientation, it seems, is the pro-
cess by which, and by means most
devious, the University learns more
about you, your father's brother's
aunt's counsin's nephew and your
eating habits, than you'll ever know
or even wonder about. Books will
be written about you, files will be
kept. Perhaps you'll even be given
a number, but the antiquated stri-
ped suits have been abolished by
the Arb board of directors.
And speaking of suits, there's a
similar item you may have met al-
ready. 'Tis the widely acclaimed,
broadly proclaimed, and strictly un-

tamed Angel Robe! (To Plebeians,
it's a sheet with a hole for your head,
and a double-duty air conditioning
on each side - that's your costume
for your health exam debut.) In the
typical health exam, you start in the
basement, fully clad and within an
hour or so, come out via the top-floor
much-poked, but still possessing your
sense of humor, although you've lost
everything else.
A sense of humor is a handy as-
set to have. It helps in all sorts of
situations. It will cause you to
chuckle when you look around dur-
ing your aptitude exams, realize
everyone about you is turning a
page, and you're still on the third
item on page one.
Perhaps at this point, you've had
a chance to look at your academic
counselor from afar. You can stare
at him while your fellow group mem-
bers are having a friendly discussion
with him. One of the counselors will
probably take a firm stand for elec-
ting Differential Calculus as a first
semester freshman.
A soulmate to your academic
counselor is your long-suffering ad-
visor who is a casoned veteran of
the Battle of Ec 51, registration
and sundry points of the campus
compass. Your adviser is respon-
sible for your making your ap-
pointments cn time. Your adviser
can answer any question, ranging
from Ann Arbor weather to the
weather in Ann Arbor. (Very ver-
satile people, really. Try 'em and
see for yourself.)
Registration, done for the first
time, is definitely a revealing exper-
ience. It's told of a certain young
freshman that she lost her group
while registering and was found a
week later, as the gym was being

swept, still muttering, "But you can't
give me a Saturday class; I need my
Your running practice during Ori-
entation week would put you on any
track team. But in a few months
from now, you'll be a seasoned U of
M student, wise to the ways of the
University and those who comprise
it. You'll know many of the strands
to the various ropes. Perhaps, you'll
impart your newly-found knowledge
on to other incoming students. You'll
look back and realize the orientation
was hectic but fun.
Clever Coed Pays
Attention to New,
Attractive Belts
The clever coed of the 1945 season,
pays >as much attention to her belts
as she does to the selection of her
skirts and sweaters.
Most of the fashion magazines fea-
ture these giant waist-clinchers in
cowhide and suede. The former be-
ing used for more casual wear, the
suede for afternoon and date dresses.
Studded with metal buckles, and
cmblazoned with brass insignia, the
comhide belts are a versatile change
from the narrower models, and with
a tucked-in sweater and tweed skirt,
the 1945 look is definitely present.
One suede belt is adorned with cop-
per coins from Arabia, and shown
with a purple wool afternoon dress.
Another belt has a built-up front
section made of leopard fur with
suede ties in the back. Still others
have low, red pouches swung from the
wide capeskin midriff.
