Referral System Will Be Used
lSpring Term to Place Women
Because of the acute housing short-
age, certain changes in the procedure
of applying for reservations for wom-
en's league houses for the spring
term have been instituted, and hous-
ing plans should be made as far in
advance as possible.
Students who wish to apply for
league house reservations are in-
structed to call at the Office of the
Dean of Women and file an applica-
tion blank. League house mothers
should notify the Office of the Dean
of Women as soon as they know that
they will have spring vacancies.
Referral System Used
The only students eligible to apply
for these spaces in the league houses
are those referred by the Office of
the Dean of Women. This system of
referral permits individual preference
as to the type of housing desired.
Students may indicate their prefer-
ence as to location, meals, and single
or double rooms.
Students will be permitted to make
only one application, and those who
have applied for rooms in dormitories
will not be permitted to apply for
league house rooms for the same
semester. Referrals of applicants will
depend, in part, upon the date at
which the student files her applica-
Vacancies Are Reported
At the present time, a few of the
league house mothers have been able
to report definite spring vacancies,
and within the next few weeks it is
expected that many house mothers
will report an additional number of
girls who will leave the league houses.
Before the beginning of Christmas
vacation, the Office of the Dean of
Women hopes to have given definite
suggestions as to vacancies in league
houses to those who have filed ap-

a contract in the league house will

New Styles in Handbags Suggest
Possibilities for Christmas Gifts
BY JEAN WHITNEY
Now that Thanksgiving has come
and gone and the countryside lies
under a blanket of soft, white snow
(any resemblance between this and
Ann Arbor is purely coincidental) the
coed's fancy lightly turns to thoughts
of Christmas, and she begins to won-
der about what she should give her
friends and relations for this happy
A good solution to some of these
problems may be purses, of which
item many new and good looking
styles are being'shown.
THIS YEAR the trend in purses is
towards sizes slightly smaller
than the large carryalls of previous
seasons. Fabric bags, predominantly
of black, can be had in broadcloth,
faille, and corde. Many of these styles
are combined -successfully with tor-
toise shell frames. These frames,
many of which are like elongated
horseshoes, are a clear, rich-looking
amber color, and may be just the
right note to set off a new (or old)

Mexican alligator and goatskin in the

and well-wearing all-purpose bags.
The alligator bags are lined in suede
and come in a beautiful ox-blood
color, besides the established black,
THE ROOMY POUCH, over-should-
er style, and box bag are still in
good taste, but the newest bags shown
are narrow, and accentuate flatness.
One of the best looking purses seen
lately is a flat broadcloth with a rose
design quilted into the material. It is
lined in black satin quilted in red.
The large mirror is backed by this
same quilting. The frame is tortoise
EVENING and dinner bags also
make good gifts. These too come
in a multitude of styles and fabrics.
Shining black satin trimmed with
large gold polka dots, or handsome
roman stripped taffeta are very popu-
lar this season. Other satin bags are
set off with gold nailheads, colored
sequins, or tiny beads.
Another luxurious evening bag is
black or white satin trimmed with
silver sequins. One of the most beau-
tiful and different-looking bags seen
is oneewhich was brought back from
China. It is made of black velvet and
is completely encrusted with embroid-
