Sales Will End
Seniors To Be Given Discount
In Buying Michigan Alumnus
Today is the last day members of
Scroll honor society will solicit senior
women for subscriptions to the Michi-
gan Alumnus Magazine.
Subscriptions will be sold on the
Diagonal to all students, and sorority
houses will also be canvassed.
The regular subscription rate is
four dollars but seniors will receive
a special two dollar reduction on
their subscriptions, according to Ann
Lippincott, president of Scroll.
Since it will contain news of other
memcrs of the class, their accom-
plishments, positions, fields of study,
services in the armed forces, and
other achievements, the Michigan
Alumnus Magazine will be of spe-
cial interest to graduating seniors.
This magazine offers graduates an
opportunity to keep informed of what
the alumni are doing.
Scroll is the senior women's hon-
orary society for affiliated women.
Its yearly project is the furthering
of relations between University stu-
dents and almunae.


Michigan State Introduces Honor


in Women's Dormitories

Michigan State has instituted, for
the first time in a co-educational
school in the mid-west, the honor
system in all the women's dorms this
This system has been used and met
with a great deal of success in many
of the women's colleges in the East
including Bryn Mawr, Mt. Holyoke
college, Smith, Wellesley and Vas-
sar. This proves that the idea is not
experimental, but has already been
tried and tested. However the honor
system is new in the coeducational
school field.
This new system of dormitory
organization makes each coed re-
sionsible to herself and those per-
sens that might be affected by any
of . her actions. Michigan State,
before this system came into effect,
worked under a proctoring system
which would enfore quiet hours, but
this is now gone as are most of
the penalties used to enforce house
rules. Now, it is the considera-
tion of the individual for the group
that enforces the house policies.
Student counselors trained for their
respective positions live on each dorm
floor, and are ready and willing to
help create a floor spirit, answer

any questions and settle problems.
This gives the students an opportuni-
tY to refer to a qualified person of
their own age level when help is
The Michigan State counselor
for women, Mrs. Isabelle Go non,
has indicated that, "living under an
honor system sets a standard which
the students desire to live up to.
This is the first step that will
eventually bring the honor sys-
tem in to the classroom, men's
residences, and women's residences
not already affected.
"It will inevitably arouse in the
students an increased feeling of sat-
isfaction with themselves and their
group and extend beyond the dormi-
tory to a loyalty toward all campus
activities and to college traditions,"
she concluded.
Honorary Society
Announces Newly
Elected Officers
Vulcans, senior honorary enginer-
ing society, recently announced their
new officers.
George Spaulding will serve as
president for the coming term, while
Charles Helmick was elected secre-
tary-treasurer, Donald Snider will
serve as Engine Council representa-
Vu-cans was founded in 1904 to
honor engineers who Qad been par-
ticularly outstanding in campus ac-
tivities. Membership is limited to 18
men and only those who have held
oftice in several activities are eli-
gible for Vulcans.
Although specific functions of the
group cannot be known publicly, one
purpose of the organization is to
draw the heads of Engineering and
campus groups together. Participa-
tion in sports also makes men eligible
fr membership.
Eefore the war, Vulcans initiated
and elected officers every Septem-
ber ard terms extended throughout
the year.



Seek Winners
Cf Senior Ball
Poster Contest
Deepest mystery shrouds the iden-
tities of the designers of the prize
winning posters in the recent Senior
Ball poster contest.
On one of the entries, the only clue
is the set of initials, J.B.M., inscribed
on the back of the poster. No one
knows exactly when the poster was
submitted and careful searching has
not disclosed the name of the author.
The mystery deepened today when
The Daily discovered that the Uni-
versity has no student registered un-
der the name of Bob Passfield, which
is the identification appearing on
the other winning poster.
The ghost artists are warned by
Jim Artley, chairmen of the con-
test, that unless their identity is
made known this week, Artley will
feel forced to claim the two $5 gift
certificates, first prizes in the com-
The all-campus contest closed re-
cently and judging was completed by
the central committee of Senior Ball.

in Ann Arbor, will be awarded to the

New Spring Formal Fashions Feature
Drop Shoulder, One Strap, No Straps

is almost over, we can take a
parting look at the numerous, color-
ful dresses worn by the coeds.
Drop shoulders are in great de-
mand and are just the thing to show
off your tan. The newer midriff is
also very helpful and alluring. Strap-
less formals are still in style. Another
recent idea is one wide strap with a
bow or flower on it.
Colonial influence is seen in the
number of hoops being worn, which
are separate and can be used to re-
juvenate your last year's formal or
add glamour to your new one.
The bustle effect is being revived.
A flounce all around the waist is a
newer variation of an old style. Pe-
plum is also being converted to for-
inal wear.

WHITE is having its heyday now
that spring is here with gay
flowered formals running a close
second. Pastel shades of blue, pink,
yellow and green are most sought af-

Cool eyelet is a popular spring ma-
terial. It is used in combination with
a black skirt for a very striking effect.
Other materials oftenrseen are dot-
ted swiss, chintz and 'xegular cotton.
Foreign fashions are making their
impression on coeds, too. Draped
Greek style with a high snug waist
helps create the slim waisted appear-
ance. One strap with a length of ma-
terial thrown over the other shoulder
is an import from India.
Ballet slippers are a must. They are
most popular in white, gold and black,
but can be purchased in any color
to match the dress.
