Climaxing the activities of Assem-
bly Fortnight, which began Monday,
Fortnight show will be presented for
all independent women on campus at
7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre in the League.
The primary purpose of the Fort-
night program is to familiarize fresh-
men women with the activities of
Assembly and the League. A merry-
go-round theme has been selected for
the slogan and the decorations.
Jeanne Claire, president of Assembly,
urges that all independent women
"Hop on the Assembly Merry-Go-
Round" and get acquainted with their
A program of five minute skits
and songs will be presented by rep-

hall on campus. The show will be

are not to exceed ten. Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre will be' open Monday
and Tuesday evenings for rehearsals,
and groups should come on one of
those days to rehearse the line-up of
tne program.
Assembly Fortnight was first in-
augurated last fall primarily to ex-
plain the part that independents
can play in their own association.
Fortnight lasts one week and is of-
ficially brought to an end by the
Assembly Fortnight show on the
final day.
Miss Claire also announced that As-
sembly memberships cards are now
available. Coeds may call for their
cards from 3 to 5 p.m. Mondays

All independent women are eligi-
ble for Assembly membership, and
these cards will be necessary for
such purposes as petitioning, for
admittance to league house dance,
and for purchasing tickets to As-
sembly Ball.
The use of membership cards was
initiated last year in order to provide
a tangible means of identifying the
independent coed with the Assembly

To Open

The WAA Hockey Club will open its
fall season with a meeting at 5 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 2, in the WAB.
Former members of the club and
all other women interested in playing
hockey are urged to attend. Plans for
the club's activities will be made and
pamphlets containing hockey rules
will be given out.
The Hockey Club meets twice a
week as long as weather permits. In-
struction is provided for beginners,
and practice sessions are held dur-
ing the first part of each meeting.
Teams will be chosen soon after the
start of practice. A game with Uni-
versity High School and a club picnic
have been planned for late in the sea-
The club is open to all women on
campus, regardless of experience. No
eligibility card is required. Those who
are interested but who are unable to
attend the first meeting should call

Coeds Must Share
Game Expenses
The consensus of opinion among
those who know about such things is
that it would be rather unfair for any
lucky coed going to the Ohio State
game on a date to expect her man to
foot the whole bill.
With game tickets selling for $3.50
and train tickets at $7.60, he would
find himself struggling under a $22.20
expense for the first part of his date.
So, again according to those who
know, the gallant thing for the girl
to do is to at least bear the cost of
her own train ticket. Incidentally,
Emily Post says it's the correct thing
to do.
For coeds troubled by lack of closet
space, new footstools are available
which cleverly conceal extra shoes.

The increased post-war population
of Ann Arbor has caused an increase
in the number of requests received
by the Office of the Dean of Women
for women students to fill part-time
Since Monday, the Office has in-
terviewed 24 women and referred
them to jobs. There are still many
openings for part-time employees to
work as soda dispensers, League
house or tea room waitresses, sales
women, art class models, household
helpers, workers in the University
Hospital, and baby sitters.
Women interested in working part-

WAA Hockey

time may apply at the office of the,
Dean of Women where they will be
referred to openings. Students ap-
plying must have their schedules
fixed and know their free hours so
that employment will not interfere
with their academic work.
The Office has a pamphlet, "Un-
derwriting Your Own Education,"
which is available to women interest-
ed in working while they are in 'col-
lege. This booklet describes employ-
ment opportunities, gives valuable
information about the number of
hours a student should work, and
how to budget time and finances.

Check It
The world's all around about
our Laurie Spence suits-
they're conversation pieces,
both, coming and going. The
9 to 15 crowd is talking about
our 100% 'virgin wool check
suit, an Antietam fabric in
black or brown with white,
advertised in August "HOLI-
DAY." The over - shoulder
straps, and the wornderful
little fitted jackets come in
for their full share of atten-

hether It's K'ndergarten
or Campus...
our tip is the same. If you're a Michigan man of brawn or
a gay co-ed .. . or a busy mother with tiny responsibilit-
ies, you'll be equally interested.
Rough weather is ahead and now is the time to prepare.
Make going to school a pleasure, unhampered by the wea-
ther. Have those outdoor things "MICROCLEANED" now,
and waterproofed the "CRAVANETTE" way to take you
through whatever the season brings.
