HIS ESSAY is being written from that much-maligned institution, the
University of Michigan Health Service. Some people blanch with fear at
the mention of this name; I think it rather charming. The decor is
tasteful, if not exhilerating, the cuisine is the best on campus, and the
library is fascinating.
Most of the sufferers in Health Service seem to favor popular magazines
as anodynes for their pain-wracked hours. This determination to keep in
touch with the outside world is indeed admirable, but causes the patient
to miss the gem of the collection, a volume entitled, "A Lost Lady" by
Willa Cather.
WHOSOEVER reviews books for Health Service has written cautiously
on the flyleaf of this one that it is-"Easy, fast reading. The story is
not a vivid or stirring one and in a sense not an original one, for you've
read similar ones many times. Time, 21/2 hours." This unknown critic shows
a genius for understatement, and is undoubtedly a speedy reader, but it
seems to me that he has ignored completely the most meritorious portion
of the book, the illustrations from a Hollywood studio screen classic, ap-
parently produced about 1922.
Everything starts off with a bang and a frontispiece of "Irene Rich as
Marian Forrester." Someone should have tipped Irene off that she was
Marian Forrester, and not Lady Macbeth, for such would seem to be her
impression. She is garbed in w'hat appears to be an inverted straitjacket,
a marcelled wave, three-inch earrings, a tense expression, and is clutching
a candle.
A FEW PAGES farther on we find a graying gentleman in a high collar
dangling a locket in front of Irene with an expression which suggests
that he has caught her in the act of pilfering it. The caption, a sterling
example of a type of prose which has, alas, almost vanished from current
literature, says-"His love expressed in priceless jewels-and still her
heart ached on."
Another illustration shows aT. group of ladies in unbelievably concealing
evening gowns dancing a good three inches away from their partners, all
of whom have martyred expressions and obviously wish they could smoke
on the set. The caption is-"The gay life that she longed for-the canker
that was gnawing at her heart." An addiction to this wild dissipation
could undoubtedly wreck any heroine's life-or nerves, anyway.
My favorite shows young gentlemen with hair like the Before in a hair
tonic ad proffering the cherry from his cocktail to the ingenue, who
regards it with sick loathing. This is captioned-"Her thoughts were on
another-she was blinded by tinsel and refused pure gold." On plunging
into the text, I discovered that she refused the hero's cherry and accepted
the villain's--possibly his was only imitation maraschino.
Irene-and I-somehow survived three hundred pages of this, and the
last illustration finds her in a black wig and Argentina, making up to a
wealthy widower-"ly a turn of fortune's wheel, no longer a Lost Lady."
Three cheers for Hollywood for producing this screen classic, to the
publishing industry for printing the boob, to Health Service for preserving
it for posterity, and my heartfelt thanks to the unknown genius wno wrote
the captions.

The Alumnae Association has al-
ready sold twice as many calendars
this semester as they did during
1944-1945, according to Mrs. Lucille
B. Conger, executive secretary for the
Alumnae Council.
Two thousand copies were printed
for distribution last year, and de-
mand for them was so great that the
order was doubled for this year. Of
the 3600 copies sold to date, a total of
960 has been attributed to the Ann
Arbor Alumnae Club, the greatest
number sold by any one organized
group. The Ann Arbor chapter was
aidedbydormitory presidents, who
were responsible for selling calendars
to the coeds living in their houses.
Calendars Sold Abroad
Calendars have been bought
through Alumnae Clubs all over the
country; some have even been sent
abroad. Requests have also been re-
ceived from many who are not mem-
bers of organized groups. The various
book stores on campus have aided in
satisfying demands from University
students, and many copies are still
being sold.
"Thesecalendars are very popular
with alumnae as souvenirs," Mrs.
Conger said, "not only because they
contain beautiful snapshots of cam-
pus scenery, but also because they
make handsome gifts."

Mrs. Conger went on to explain
that money collected from sales goes
into the Alumnae fund. This year's
profits will be used primarily to en-
