Featuring a humorous Michigan
quiz show, "Independent Fortnight,"

sembly Association to acquaint un-
affiliated women with their organ-
ization, will begin with a mass meet-
ing to be held at 8 p. m. Monday,
Nov. 12, in the League Lydia Men-
The quiz show will be composed of
questions on little things which usu-
ally take the average coed three years
to learn. Such important facts as,
"where can I get the best malted?",
will be brought out during the show.
With the nautical theme of "As-
sembly Launches a New Year," the.
mass meeting will also include skits,
songs, and surprises for the 3,000 in-
dependent women of the University.
The skit of the evening will present
the history of the Michigan coed,
up from the old days of her first re-
ception on campus.
Assembly's song, adopted last year
as a result of a song contest, will be
sung, and members of this year's As-
sembly Board will be introduced to
The "Fortnight" will consist of 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. Recognition

dent women will be honored will cli-

Recognition Night is a feature in
long standing with the members of

Will Be Held
The "Brown Jug Dance" from 9 to
midnight today in the League Ball-
room will open the series of weekend
dances scheduled for this semester.)
The 15 piece Navy Dance Band,
under the direction of Harry B. Til-
ler, will furnish the music. Wolver-
ine cheerleaders are sponsoring the
dance to obtain funds to send the
yell-leaders to Baltimore for the
Michigan-Navy game. Tickets may be
obtained from the cheerleaders or
members of the Navy Dance Band,
and may be purchased also at the
main desks of the League and Union
and at various booths on campus.
Saturday night will not find terpsi-
chorean-minded students disconso-
late, because the Union Council will
sponsor the first of its regular week-
end dances from 9 to midnight in the
Rainbow Room of the Union.
Billy Layton and his all-campus
orchestra, which plays at all Union
dances, will introduce Patti Du Pont,
their new soloist. Although this is
Miss DuPont's first appearance on
campus, she has been with the band
as featured soloist on their summer
tour through the middle west.
Aids AlI Women
A new booklet, published this year,
combines the activities of League
Council with the Panhellenic book,
and is designed to help Michigan co-
eds find the organization in which
they are most interested.
A section of the booklet is devoted
to the activities of the WAA and con-
tains a list of the dates of the first'
meeting of all the WAA clubs. This
is helpful to those women who are
interested in joining one of these.
The heads of each activity are also

place in the book. Helpful hints to
prospective rushees are given, as well
as pictures of the houses and lists
of their memberships.

early date of Recognition Night is'

With shoes recently joining the
growing ranks of the unrationed, the
most natural reaction is to tear out
and-indulge in the new freedom.
"Gee, now I can get some red
shoes," seemed to be the average com-
ment when rationing was lifted, and
it seems quite indicative of the gen-
eral feeling. No longer limited to
somewhat less than two pair of shoes
per year, it will certainly be easier to
buy extreme colors and styles with a
Rationing Affected Styles
Since rationing went into effect in
March, 1943, shoe manufacturers
have pared down their lines until
footwear has reached a new level of
basic practicality. The advent of no
restrictions will probably see manu-
facturers relieving all inhibitions and
producing weird but wonderful new
Already, there are shoes in local
windows that would not have dared
appear at this time last year. Wit-
ness the ballet slipper, which inci-
dentally, has amazing potentialities
as a glorified bedroom slipper, as well
the ability to make its wearer feel
that she is "really in the know."
Platform Soles Are Back
The earlier promotion of platform
soles was nipped in infancy by the
coming of the airplane stamp, but
within the last few months, the cam-
paign has picked up where it left
off. Extreme platforms have been
slow in meeting with public favor, but
the more modified types have caught
on well. Short gals find platforms an
easy way to gain that extra inch or
so in height without having to teeter
menacingly on spike heels.
Light suede fiats are something new
under the ankle and would be versa-
tile mixers with almost any color
combination. Campus stores offer
these new arrivals in beige and grey
french mocassins, suitable for every-
day wear with anklets, as well as
with hose for casual weekend dating.
Flats Are High Fashion
Flats have come into their own this
year with top magazines promoting
them withall their heart and soul.
They are the answer to the local
coeds' prayer hereabouts, since one
trek down Liberty and back more
often than not sends high heels to
the repair man and their wearer to
bunny scuffs and epsom salts. The
beauty of the new flats is that you no
longer have to look like a fugitive
from Little Abner or the nearest PX
in clumsy clodhoppers to have the
comfort of low heels.
You may choose from dressy suedes
done with sling backs and open toes,
in betweens of alligator or calf per-

feet fox suits and tailored dresses,
or the ever present loafers and mocs
-a veritable fiat heeled wardrobe.
All in all, the shoe picture shines
this season, and just to add a new
touch to your first ration-bookless
shoe shopping spree, you might light
your cigarette with the airplane
