P OTENTIALLY almost as dangerous as the atomic bomb is Michigan Diag,
a "short-cut beaten path to campus custom and conduct" issued by the
dauntless Social Committee of the League.
The booklet starts off with the unexceptionable statement that, "If
classes didn't meet, there would be no university," which could hardly
bother even the people who write letters to The Daily, but this is only a
smoke-screen for more sinister things to come. There is something al-
most Machiavellian in its discussion of the always painful subject of
Ann Arbor's social life.
SOMETHING EUPHEMISTICALLY known as "social finesse" appears to
be of the essence in emerging from four years at Michigan without a
neurosis. A few quotations should suffice to give female readers an idea of
what social finesse is, and male readers the jitters.
"Well, there are always exchange dinners. If the lad you are paired
off with isn't a charm, be nice anyway and maybe the boy across the
table will see your radiating personality and call you for a coke with
"F THE CALL turns out to be some chap you detest, be nice anyway. His
roommate, to whom he may report, might be a friend of yours who
would be disappointed in your conduct if not your attitude."
... .you may always meet a prospective date while out with an-
ther not so interesting. Here let us mention that no matter how dull
your date is, it won't last long, and it is your social obligation to give
him your attention and make him think you are having a good time
because he brought you. At the same time, if you are in a crowd you
can have a sly look around and meet them all. This is called social
finesse ,and it is based on courtesy and a touch of femininity."
ANOTHER ASPECT of this interesting quality is brought out in Diag's
discussion of the 12:30 struggle. "But use your old social finesse and re-
member there's a place for everything and the spot for loving is not on the
doorstep-that's public property and so is the Arboretum." Just for the
fun of it, I wish Diag had bothered to tell us where the spot for loving is, if
it's neither the doorstep nor the Arboretum. Looking at the problem em-
pirically, somebody has been hanging around the wrong doorsteps.
My h3eart goes out to the Michigan man, it really does. There is
something pathetic in the thought of the poor boy, blasted with waves
of radiating personality intended for the guy across the table, cooed at
over the phone for the benefit of his roommate, deluded into thinking
he isn't dull while his date has a "sly look around," and finally straight-
armed on the doorstep.
It is interesting to note that even the League Social Committee, which
knows all the answers and understands social finesse, begins to skid when
it hits the thin ice of What To Do in Ann Arbor. After suggesting several
occupations, Diag winds up rather desperately with "... or you might think
of something yourself like sailing a kite."
Well, there's your shotcut beaten path to campus custom and conduct.
I don't know what you're doing here, but I'm looking for the long way home.

Jer 29, are urged to sign up on lists

Tuesday it was announced that Sally
Pearson, Alpha Omicron Pi, will be
chairman of the faculty teas, and
Doris Johnson, Kappa Kappa Gam-
ma, assistant chairman.
Miss Pearson and Miss Johnson
will work with two Assembly mem-
bers in presenting the faculty teas

designed to promote out-of-class re-
lations among the faculty and stu-
At the same meeting Panhel voted
to sponsor exchange dinners among
the sororities on campus. A rotating
schedule will be set up by Panhel and
the sororities, themselves will be free
to decide which day of the week will
be most convenient.
The Campus Casbah needs cam-
pus talent for the floorshow Fri-
day and Saturday nights. Anyone
interested is urged to attend the
tryouts at 7:30 p.m. today in the
League Ballroom.

WAA Organizations Initiate
Programs for Fall Semester

Counsellors' Clubs will hold a break-
fast hike at 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
The group will meet at the WAB
and walk from there to the under-
water bridge. Those attending the
hike are asked to bring their own
Membership in the two clubs now
numbers thirty, and there are still
places for interested coeds. However,
according to Virginia Howe, manageri
of camp counsellors, women should
sign up immediately in order to be
eligible for later activities.
Outing and camp counsellors' or-
ganizations work together during the
outdoor season, since the majority of
counselling activities are correlated,
with those of outing. Events that
have been planned for this year in-
clude hostel trips and cookouts.
During the winter, prospective and
advanced counsellors receive instruc-
tion in other camp methods. Outing
Club meetings are devoted to hikes,
skiing, canoeing, and various other
outdoor activities. All those inter-
ested in the activities of either club
are urged to attend the breakfast
hike. Those who cannot be there-
may call Miss Howe at 2-4471, or
Joan Richardson, head of the Outing
Club, at 3018.

hold its organization meeting at 10
a.m. Saturday in the Union Pool.
The club will swim each Saturday
morning throughout the year, and
will sponsor such special events as
the WAA Intramural Swimming Meet
held last Tuesday. Collegiate Sorosis

was the winner of the team compe-
tition in this meet.
As a special feature, work will be-
gin immediately on a water ballet to
be presented at the Union Open house
this fall.
Those interested in Swimming club
activities are urged to attend the first
meeting. The group is under the di-
rection of Louise Markhas, WAA
swimming manager. Any women who
are unable to attend the meeting
should call Miss Markhas at 2-4471.
* :' *
THE TENNIS CLUB is now open-
ing classes for the fall season, due
to the demand for instruction in be-
ginning tennis.
Sally Ware, club manager, ex-
plained that the weather has been
better than expected, and instructors
have been found to teach the class.
All women interested in tennis in-
struction are asked to call Miss Ware
at 2-4471.
The ladder tournament is now well
under way with approximately 65
women participating. Miss Ware
urged that members play their
matches as quickly as possible, since
one match a week is required for par-
ticipation credit.
League house athletic managers
will meet at 4:30 p.m. today in the
Women's Athletic Building to dis-
cuss WAA tournaments and par-
ticipation. Rae Keller , league

Women Veterans

To-Begin Activities

At their first meeting of the year,
the University Women Veterans' Or-
ganization discussed plans for this
year's activities.
The group hopes to write and
broadcast a radio skit written by the
members about the women veterans
on campus. Since this is a new or-
ganization, the women want to gain
recognition by sponsoring various
social events this year.
The first week of school the or-

ganization held an informal get-to-
gether for the new women to become
acquainted. The officers elected at
the first meeting are Anne Dearnley,
president; Lucille Schultz, vice-presi-
dent; Janet Roth, secretary; Ann
Bordman, treasurer; and Shirley
Hansen, publicity chairman. The
three advisors for the group are Miss
Ethel A. McCormick, Dean Mary C.
Bromage; and Miss McNeill from
Public Health.
