Assembly Activities,
Plans Will Be Told
A mass meeting for all unaffiliated
women to be held at 8 p.m: Monday,
Nov. 12 will start off "Independent
Fortnight," which is to be a series
of events to familiarize the 3,000 inde-
pendent women of the University
with the purpose and activities of
their organization, Assembly.
Skits, songs and surprises are to be
included on the program for the mass
meeting, according to Helen Alpert,
president of Assembly. The skit of the
evening, with the history of the Mich-
igan Coed as its theme,'will present
the true facts along with humorous
trimmings of how the first campus

'Group ToMeet
An interhouse managers' meeting
will be held at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday
in the Lounge of the Women's Ath-
letic Building.
It is important that the athletic
manager from every house be there,
and if she is not able to attend,
she must send a representative. Jean
Brown, interhouse manager, will con-
duct the meeting, and Barbara Os-
borne, president of the WAA, will
extend a welcome to all the members.
.The first intramural sport will be
volleyball. It is requested that every
representative bring her game time
preference and to indicate first and
second choice. The times available
are 5:10 p.m., 7:20 p.m., and 8:00
pim. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thurs-
days, and Fridays. All games will be
played in Barbour Gym.
After the general get-together,
group meetings will be held. The
heads of each committee are Ann
Lippencott, sorority manager; Ann
Wallerstein, dormitory manager; and
Janet Cork, league house manager.
Those bluwe booklets, curently seen
in the hands of coed freshmen, are
not the traditional bluebooks making
a premature appearance. They are

-the freshman woman's campus Bi-

coed was greeted upon her arrival at
Michigan. Today's coeds will be shown
how the first representative of their
sex fought for her place amidst the
razzings and jeers of yesterday's Joe
Quiz Show Featured
A feature event of the mass meet-
ing will be a Michigan quiz show, the
purpose of which is to acquaint fresh-
men and independent women with
facts about the University. Ques-
tions (and it is expected, answers)
will be of every conceivable variety
and will be of the following type:
Where would one go for a class in
sculpturing? Where can you get the
best malted in town?
Assembly's song, which was adopt-
ed last year, will be sung and the
words and melody taught to the
group. The song was chosen as - the
winner of Assembly's song contest
of last spring and was written by Miss
Alpert and Alice Berberian, '46.
Board Introduced
Members of this year's Assembly
Board will be introduced to the group
so that every independent coed will
know and recognize her leaders. The
central committee of Assembly board,
in addition to the president, Miss
Alpert, consists of two vice-presidents,
Mary Ellen Wood, '46 of Martha
Cook, who heads the league houses,
and Elaine Bailey, '46 Martha Cook,
in charge of dormitories, a secretary-
treasurer, Mary Alice Dunivan '46,
Stockwell; and two activities chair-
man, Grace Hansen '46, and June
Gummerson '46, of Mosher and Mar-
tha Cook, respectively.
All freshmen coeds and unaffiliat-
ed women are urged to plan to at-
tend the mass meeting, which is to
be the initial event of "Independent
Fortnight." The "Fortnight" will be
a two week period during which the
members of Assembly Board will visit
all women's dorms and large league
houses, explaining the purposes and
activities of Assembly. Teas will be
given for the smaller houses whose
large number makes it impossible for
them to be visited by the Board mem-
Recognition Night will climax the
"Fortnight." Plans for this event,
at which outstanding independent
women will be honored, will be an-
nounced later.

A meeting for those interested in
becoming members of the Daily
Women's staff will be held at 4 p. in.
Monday in the Conference Room of
the Student Publications building.
Although first-semester freshmen
are not eligible for work on the Daily,
second-semester freshmen, upper-
classmen, and transfers may try out
for positions on the Women's staff.
During her first semester, the pros-
pective staff member is given in-
struction in news writing, and is given
opportunities to write for the
Women's page. After a semester of
satisfactory work she is made a mem-
ber of the sophomore staff, and is
given regular assignments. Outstand-
ing work may merit promotion to the
junior night editor positions.
Women's page work gives experi-'
ence in writing news, features, fa-
shions, and weddings, and the staff
member gathers firsthand informa-
tion of' many of the important
women's activities on campus.
Tutorial Group
To Organize
There will be' a meeting for all
those women interested in working
on the Merit Tutorial Committee at
4 p. m. Tuesday in the Undergradu-
ate Office of the League, according to
Dona Guimarues, Merit chairman.
This committee supervises and
keeps the merit files, which contain
the records of the extra curricular
activities of all the coeds. These files
are used by the Judiciary council
when making appointments, and by
the honor societies.
Women who wish to work on these
files may spend a certain amount of
time each week on the committee,
usually in the afternoon.

Year's First Meeting
The Camp Counsellors' Club of
the WAA will hold its first meeting of
the year at 7:15 p.m. Thursday,

camp programs will be discussed by
club members, and all women inter-
ested in camp work are invited to
join the club, whether or not they
have had any previous experience as

ants should be present at the open-
ing meeting to consider the scripts

summer from other junior women,

eral chairman.

WHEN accessories crowd outfits off
T of the first pages of fashion
magazines, as they have this year,
the time has come to pay some heed.
Much has been said concerning
belts, and no wonder, for there is
plenty to talk about. With such hand-
some belts already out and so many
more ingeneous ones appearing regu-
larly, the gal who can resist has
will power indeed. Wide leather belts,
buckled in polished brass, do wonders
for last years sweaters and skirts.
Tuck your sweater in, add the belt
and the effect is guaranteed to pro-
duce comment on your new outfit.
Variety of Belts
Try a fur belt on a jersey or wool
dress. Leopard is stunning on beiges
or browns and is featured with grey
as a new combination. Pony and
broadtail are good in the belt line too.
The neat little one inch strap used in
the past for the purely functional
purpose of holding up a skirt is nudg-
ed into oblivion by shaped belts, ris-
ing in front or dipping in back. Jew-
elled belts add spark to a plain dress,
and narrow gold and silver chains,
reminiscent of grandfather's watch
chain, provide interesting variation.
BALANCING the belt, the neckline
has come into its own. Jewelry is
made imperative by the new high
and plain throatlines, and chokers are
complimentary to both the dress and
the wearer. Heavy chains, dogeollars,
and multi-strand chokers, are new
because you wear several at once.
Pendants and ropes of pearls are pos-
sibilities for the good black dresses,
and medallions pinned on velvet
bands are feminine and attractive.
Bracelets Still Popular
Bangle bracelets still jingle on the
well-dressed wrist, and large copper
and hammered aluminum bracelets
can be made to seem as cuffs on a
long sleeved dress. Ident bracelets,
preferably heavy, still have distinc-
Scarves can be manipulated to re-
olace a neckline, either wound clever-
ly and secured with your favorite pin

SOt4e 6ot4heie

or tied ascot fashion to replace a!
dickey. Worn in collaboration with a
gold or silver chain, the scarf can be-
come the focal point of the costume.
Practical Accessory
College rebellion against bags may
be slightly affected by the new bag
on a belt. It is a happy solution to the
problem of lipstick, money and comb
on coatless days.
IN ACCESSORIZING, no matter how
avid you may be to try it all at
once, stop in front of a full length
mirror before you make the import-
ant appearance. One too many can
be as disastrous as none at all.
Chunky, massive jewelry is grand on
the tall gals, but don't submerge your-
self if you are diminutive. Whether
you consider yourself the chic, pretty,
sophisticated or ingenue type makes
a difference also. There are accessor-
ies suitable for each, so define your
type and take your pick from the big-
gest accessory picture yet.

'U' Glee Club
To Hold Tryout
Tryouts will be held for the Uni-
versity Women's Glee Club at 4 p.m.
tomorrow and Monday in the ABC
Rooms in the League, Bernice Hall,
president of the Glee Club; announced
At at the same time, all old mem-
bers still on campus are urged to
come in to sign up for the new season
so that the number of new members
to be taken in can be determined.
All coeds who would like to try out
are eligible, with the exception of
first semester freshmen.
Plans for this year, according to
Miss Hall, include Sunday morning
broadcasts over a Detroit station
network, Christmas and spring con-
certs. The Glee Club is under the di-
rection of Miss Marguerite Hood.
A casual observer made a remark
the other day which rates repeating.
"A good use for that extra coinage
left over from book purchases invest-
ment in victory bonds and stamps."
