IN AN INFORMAL talk held
Monday in the League, Betty
Claire Schmid, College Board Tra-
el Editor, informed prospective
College Board members that their
first assignment is due in the of-
fices of "Mademoi elle" magazine
Nov. 1.
The report should be approx-
imately two pages and may be
on any phase of campus or aca-
demic life. Women are encour-
aged to focus their chosen sub-
ject from a new angle, reflect-
ing; modern trends.
"WE CQNSIDER the College
Beard a real stepping stone
from college to a career," Miss
Schmid revealed, "because mem-
bership gives an alert young wom-
an actual experience in magazine
writing and layout and provides
her with many valuable contacts."
"Several former members
from your own campus are now
working permanently with
'Mademoiselle'," Miss Schmid
IN AN INTERVIEW with a Daily
reporter, the Travel Editor dis-
closed that her purpose in touring
Midwestern campuses is three-
fold. In addition to recruiting
coeds, she proposes to increase in-
terest in the magazine's annual
political forum held in N.Y., by
speaking to students and faculty
members in political science de-
partments. "Mademoiselle" also
will sponsor a short story contest,
for which any coeds, particularly
English majors, are eligible.
Miss Schmid returned three
weeks ao from a summer bicycle
tour of Europe, during which she
helped rebuild a Youth Hostel in
the Pyrenees near the Spanish
border. While there she talked
and worked with young people
from many European countries
and with fellow visitors from
other parts of the world.

Ticket sales for the 1947 Home-
coming Dance, featuring the mu-
sic of Louis Prima, will continue
on campus today and tomorrow.
Tickets will be on sale from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Union,
League, and University Hall as
well as three local record stores.
Ticket Chairman Ruth Sights has
urged that students buy their tick-
ets early because "We will proba-
bly sell out tomorrow or Friday at
the latest."
Chuck Lewis, general chair-
man of the dance, has promised
that the number of tickets will
be held to allow sufficient room
for the dancers. Lewis said, "In
the past ticket sales were opened
to accommodate several hun-
dred more students who wanted
to attend. As a result there was
an overcrowded dance floor."
"This year the committee feels
that to assure a good time we
ought to provide for enough space
to enjoy the music."
Louis Prima, who played for
Senior Ball in 1946, will be remem-
bered by many students on cam-
pus for his entertaining as well as
his popular style of dance music.
Prima is famous for his gravel-
voiced vocals on such novelty
tunes as "Angelina," "White
Cliffs of Dover," "Felecia, No Ca-
prica" and "Robin Hood."
More recently his records of "I
Want a Sunday Kind of Love"
and "Coffee Song" have become
best sellers.
Several years ago Prima was one
of the outstanding jazz trumpet
players, featuring New Orleans
Dixieland style, but recently the
band has featured a more com-
mercial sweet music that has
made the band a favorite on col-
lege campuses, hotels, movies and
theatres. His band holds the all-
time attendance record at the New
York Strand Theatre.
Featured with the band are
Cathy Allen, Jimmy Vincent
and Jimmy and Lu Dell. Miss

Allen is rapidly gaining the pop-
ularity of Lillyann Carrol, who
made a stepping stone to sucess
as a radio vocalist out of her
two years with the Prima band.
Vincent at nineteen is one of the
nations leading drummers while
the Dell brothers are featured
members of the brass section.
Tryouts will continue at 4 p.m.
today in the League for Soph Cab-
aret floorshow participants.
Dancing tryouts will meet in
the Garden Room, singing tryouts
in the Grand Rapids Room and
specialty acts in the Rehearsal
