The collection of sophomore class
dues will begin Tuesday by members
of the Cabaret finance committee and
will last one week.
Members of the committee will per-
sonally contact all sophomore women
on campus. They will visit all dor-
mitories, league houses, sorority
houses and private homes where
sophomore coeds are living.
Funds Are Necessary
The committee hopes to get 100%
participation in the collection of dues,
as the funds are absolutely necessary
to finance the Cabaret, Pat Hanna-
gan, publicity chairman, stated.

The Floorshow Committee of Soph
Cabaret will hold tryouts today and
tomorrow in the League. The rooms
in which the tryouts will be held will
be posted on the bulletin board at the
League Main Desk. The tryouts have
been divided into three sections, sing-
ing, dancing and specialty acts, ac-
cording to Mary Stierer, floorshow
chairman.
Tryouts Are Set
The specialty act tryouts, which
Miss Stierer will direct, are scheduled
for 4 to 6 p.m. today and 10 to 11 a.m.
tomorrow. These include acting roles,
skits, monologues and musical talent.
Betty Estes, singing chairman, will
hold tryouts from 10 to 11 a.m. and
1 to 3 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to noon
tomorrow for women who wish to be
in the singing chorus. The chorus
will be in three-part harmony, and
there will also be solo and trio num-
bers.
Joanne Bromm, dance chairman,
will direct dancing tryouts from 7 to
8 p.m. today and 9 to 10 a.m. tomor-
row. Miss Bromm plans to use as
many coeds as she can in the dancing
chorus.
The Business Unit of Soph Cabaret
will meet at 5 p.m. today in the ABC
Rooms in the League.
WAA Board Holds
Meeting Today
A meeting of the WAA Board and
WAA club advisers will be held at 4
p.m. today at the Women's Athletic
Building.
Plans for the year's activities will
be discussed, and new advisers will
be introduced to the WAA board
members. The advisers, who are
members of the women's physical ed-
ucation staff, assist managers in
planning the program for each sport
and furnish instruction to club mem-
bers. Refreshments will be served
following the meeting.

Jerry Edwards and his orchestra
will be featured at the first Veterans'
Dance of the season to be held from
8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. today at West
Lodge in Willow Run.
The affair is held in an effort to
acquaint students living at Willow
Run with those on campus. Dances
of this kind were begun last year and
plans are being made to continue the
project.
Guests for the dance will include
nearly one hundred coeds from dor-
mitories, sororities and league houses.
Transportation will be provided for
those leaving from campus. Three
busses will leave at 7:45 p.m. from

tutes.
Patrons for the evening's entertain-
ment will include Miss Audrey Wes-
ton, Miss Patricia Piatt, Miss Allene
Golinkin, and Mr. and Mrs. R. L..
Mill'er.

Will Be Held
Every Week
Students, Veterans Will Meet
At Informal League Affairs;
Oct. 16 To Be Opening Date
The American Veteran's Committee
will sponsor a series of afternoon
dances from 2 to 5 p.m. every Wed-
nesday in the League Ballroom, and
the first of these dances will be given
Oct. 16.
The AVC hopes to make these
dances a campus institution where
men and women students may drop
in after classes and dance to records.
Because of League restrictions, no
refreshments will be served in the
Ballroom, but the League coke bar
will be open. The decorations will
be the same as those of the Campus
Casbah.
An effort will be made to have
hosts and hostesses at the initial
dances to introduce women students
and veterans.
According to Art Kaplan, AVC
dance committee chairman, "The
need for a place on campus where
coeds and veterans may meet in an
informal atmosphere has been made
more apparent this term than ever
before. The sharp line between men
and women's midweek activities has
been a handicap in this respect. We
are initiating these Wednesday after-
noon record hops to give both sides
of campus the opportunity to get to
know each other better."
Sorority Transfers
Sorority women who have trans-
ferred this semester and have not
yet contacted their chapter on cam-
pus may do so by calling the chap-
ter or depositing a slip with name,
address and phone number on it in
the Panhel box in the Undergraduate
Office of the League.

By BLANCHE BERGER
A tisket-a tasxet-so you've lost
your yellow basket, Parker 51, or
wallet!! Why be irritated? Light an
Old Gold and drop into Room 1 Uni-
versity Hall.
There, at the Lost and Found desk,
are turned in all articles found
throughout campus, except those
found in the Union, League, 'or Hos-
pital. In returning something to the
office, the student may accept a claim
check for that article. If no one has
called for it within a period of two
months, it goes to the finder. How-
ever, many students do not take out
claim checks for the articles they re-
turn and such things, if not claimed
by the owners in the specified two
month period, are sent to the Hospi-
tal Social Service. There the things
can be distributed to those who are in
need.
Everything imaginable is brought
to Lost and Found including coats,
hats, mittens, scarfs, books, glasses,
pens, jewelry, wallets, themes, and
bluebooks. During the winter it is
overrun with mittens and scarfs;
in Fall and Spring with raincoats.
Valuable watches, bracelets and
pens are also returned to the office,
much to gratification of the own-
ers. However petty losses are more
commonly returned.
Any library books found are imme-
diately sent over to the Library; vet-
eran requisition books without names
go to the Cashier's Office. At the
present time there is a box of lost
blueprints, cards, registration mate-
rial, letters and papers. Anyone who
has lost such articles during regis-
tration period is urged to claim them.
If names are written upon arti-
cles returned, Mrs. Siewars contacts
Read and Use the
Classified Directory

the student as soon as possible.
Therefore, the safest policy is to write
your name plainly in all books
(scratching out all previous ones),
notebooks, papers and in wallets.
The majority of the diversified
things turned into the office event-
ually find their way back to the own-
ers, much to the satisfaction of all
concernd.

To Open Booth
Beginning Wednesday, an Informa-
tion Booth will be open from 1 to 5
p.m. Mondays through Fridays in the
Merit-Tutorial Room in the Under-
graduate Office of the League.
The booth, which is sponsored by
the Merit-Tutorial Committee, will
furnish answers to questions con-
cerning League and Union activities,
campus clubs, sororities, fraternities,
scholarships, concerts, dances, Ann
Arbor activities and anything else
that will be of interest to students.
"It is really the thing we've needed
on campus for a long time," Judy
Rado, chairman of the committee,
said.
Students may still sign up to tutor
by filling out a slip with their name,
address, phone number and subject
they wish to teach. These slips should
be left in the Merit-Tutorial box in
the Undergraduate Office. To be eli-
gible to tutor, a student must have re-
ceived an A in the subject or a B if it
is his major. Tutors are paid 75 cents
an hour.
Coeds interested in making posters
or working on publicity for the com-
mittee should contact Miss Rado at
2-4225.
FRESHMAN
QUERIES
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third in
a series- of articles in which the Office
of the Dean of Women answers ques-
tions asked by freshmen women during
the orientation period.
Question: "What is the comparison
of the expenses of a woman student
who belongs to a sorority and one
who remains independent?
Answer: Sororities cost about 100
dollars more for the first year because
of the initiation fee and pin, and
about 60 dollars each subsequent
year for dues. The room and board
for those living in sorority houses is
just a trifle higher than that of wom-
en living in dormitories.
Question: "If you are not a soror-
ity member does it make you ineligi-
ble to hold offices or does it limit
your activities on campus?"
Answer: Our two associations for
women, Assembly and Pan Hellenic,
make it possible for both independent
and sorority women to hold offices.
Sorority women may not hold offices
in Assembly, and independent women
may not hold offices in Pan-Hellenic
Association. Mortarboard, a society
honoring women for their participa-
tion in extra-curricular activities, is
usually made up of almost equal
numbers of independent and sorority
women.
Question: "If a student chooses to
remain independent the first year or
two, can she possibly get into a soror-
ity later on?"
Answer: Yes, it is quite possible.
However, since sororities do not take
as many upperclassmen as freshmen,
a student's chances of getting into a
sorority are less if she remains inde-
pendent for the first two years.
Commemoration Founder's Day,
Alpha Phi will hold a dessert for ac-
tives and alumni at 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row at the chapter house.
