Senior Night To Be Capped
By Annual Junior Girls Play

Junior women will climax their
year of activities, when they pre-
sent the annual Junior Girls Play,
honoring graduating senior sisters,
to complete the traditional Senior
Night program.
An annual event since 1904, this
year's JGPlay will be the fourth
of the completely original presen-
tations, written, directed and pro-
duced solely by junior women.
The play is presented in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre three
times, and according to tradi-
tion, the first presentatlon of
the play 'for seniors only,' and

a regular audience. In former

Coeds may apply for a number
of scholarships and prizes award-
ed annually to qualified women
students in the University.
On the basis of good citizen-
ship, scholarship, and need, the
variousdormitories award schol-
arships. Although they are or-
dinarily intended to meet the needs
of students who have already
made a record at the University,
they are occasionally awarded to
a new student whose credentials
are exceptional.
Alumnus Scholarship
Entering freshmen who are
residents of Michigan are eligible
to apply for the Michigan Alurfl-
ni Undergraduate Scholarships,
valued at the total of the semes-
ter fees. These are renewed as
long as the completion of study ix
the University is satisfactory. Ap-
plication should be made to the
secretary of the University of
Michigan Alumni Club in the ap-
plicant's home city or district.
A goal to strive for is the win-
ning of one of the three Ethel A.
McCormick Scholarships which
are awarded each year. These are
given to second semester junior
women who have a scholastic av-
erage of at least 2.7 and have par-
ticipated in extra-curricular ac-

winner fails to meet the require-
ments at the end of the first se-

days, the play traveled to De-

activities is the parade in which

of this year's Junior Girl's Play.
For se~ver'al years the plays
were written by graduate stu-
dents. alumni, and even profes-
sional writers. "Take It from
There," "There's Room for All,"
and "The Best Years," staged in
1945 through 1947 respectively
were produced solely by junior
women, as will be this year's
The first production was a sim-
ple play presented by six junior
coeds in Sarah Caswell Angell Hall
in :arbour Gymnasium. The fol-
lowing year, "Every Senior," was
staged "For the warming and
moral awakening of the senior
In 1912 a second performance,
whicn was open to all women on
campus, was given. "The Come-
back" in 1915 was performed in
Detroit. The play was not opened
to men in Ann Arbor until 1923
when it was staged at a local

Junior, Senior
Coeds Eligible
For Awards
Junior and cenior women stu-
dents at theUniversity as well as
graduate students are eligible to
apply for loans according to Mrs.
Mary C. Bromage, Associate Dean
of Women.
In addition freshmen and soph-
omores who find themselves faced
with unexpected emergencies may
become eligible. Loans are made
after consideration of the stu-
dents' needs and resources in re-
lation to the cost of University
"Whereas there was relatively
little demand for loans during the
war years," Mrs. Bromage stated,
"the academic year 1947-48 shows
a decided increase in the amount
of money which students were
forced to borrow." This can be
attributed to mounting costs and
occasional loss of income due to
unemployment or family crisis.
The Office of the Dean of Wom-
en is able to work out the period
of repayment to fit the students'
program. Application blanks are
available in Barbour Gymnasium
upon request


Bromage Asks for Inquirinc
Minds in Modern Students

Today's student should bring an
inquiring mind and a susceptible
imagination with him when he.
comes to college, according to Mrs.
Mary C. Bromage, Associate Dean
of Women.
In addition, he should possess
the will to work and should have
the encouragement of his family
and teachers if he is to achieve
the objectives of a modern college
Dean Bromage cited these ob-
jectives as:
First, the acquisition of a new
perspective that comes from the
study of other peoples, places and
times. This should give the stud-
ent an insight into "his own turb-
ulent times."
Second, the increased enjoy-
ment of life which accompanies
the development of familiarity
with literary, musical and artistic
masterpieces. Dean Bromage said
that human nature cannot fulfill
itself unless the individual is stim-
ulated to a greater capacity for
self expression.
Third, the development of an
awareness of social responsibilities

and the obligations of citizenship
which Dean Bromage termed "in-
escapable in a democracy."
Fourth, discovery of the stud-
ent's own field of special interest
"Only knowledge induces the kinc
of self-confidence that betokens a
discipline of mind whereby ideas
are founded on facts, not prejud-
ices. It is this sort of knowledge
self-acquired, and not wealth, in-
herited position or prestige, whicl
opens doors in America."
Fifth, the opportunity to acquire
a. wide circle of friends, represent-
ing other races, nationalities anc
religions. Related to this is the
cultivation 'of a well-rounled self
development in social activitiew
and sports.
Finally, provision for acquiring
a basis for "that kind of human
relationship upon which an en-
during home life can be built."
Dean Bromage summarized her
comments on what student:
should get out of college by ob
serving that "a college' degree no
longer means four years in ivy
clad towers far from the stress and
strain of world affairs."

POISED FOR THE SWIM-But there's not much room to paddle around for these typically pulch-
ritudinous University women. Campus women are conducting a drive to replace this two-by-fqur
"Barbour Bathtub" with a really adequate swimming hole of their own. At present, the women
can stretch their muscles full length only by using one of the two pools on which men have first


League Holds
Classes for
Men in Dance
Coeds To Receive
Free Instruction
Ballroom Dancing may not be
listed in the University Catalogue,
but that doesn't mean that stu-
dents, both men and'coeds, can't
learn to dance or to improve he
two-step that carried them
through their high school days.
Dance classes, sponsored by the
League, offer an opportunity for
an hour a week of instruction
from an ex-Arthur Murray expert
to men for $4 each eight-week
courte. Coeds may receive lessons
free while acting as hostesses and
assistant teachers.
Dancers are divided into three
groups - beginners, intermediate
and advanced, and instruction is
based on the ability and prefer-
ence of the class.
Classes are held in the evening
in the League Ballroom. An-
nouncement is made in The Daily
at the beginning of each session as
to the time and place of registra-
tion and of tryouts for the ad-
vanced class. Casses are limited
to 65 man and an equal number of

Fall Fashions Promise Colorful,
Curved Look for Col eg&Bound

Fall fashions tempt the eyes
and pocketbooks of American
women with their ingenious styles
and imaginative colors, the latter
indicating a geunine feeling tone
for this bright season.
The lady-like look of natural
shoulder-lines, small waists and
curved hips and bosoms remains,
highlighted by a galaxy of excit-
Coeds May Obtain
Baby-Sitting Jobs
The Office of the Dean of
Women has issued a call for baby-
sitters-a job that has more
than financial remuneration to
recommend it.
Students whose pet peeves in-
clude an uncomfortable library
nd a noisy house, will find study
appeal in the baby-sitting position.
Parents usually have the young-
ster or youngsters in bed before
the arrival of the baby sitter who
can then sit down to an undis-
turbed evening of book-cracking.
Coeds who wish to baby-sit may
put their names on the list in the
Office of the Dean of Women.
Householders who wish to take
advantage of the baby-sitting
service may call at the same of-
fice. Office hours ,are Monday
through Friday 8 a.m. to 12 noon
and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

ing and unusual colors and rich
Black, the ever-popular, will
stand aside for tones of brown
ranging from coffee to butter-
scotch to beige. Grey, which en-
joyed a revival last season, has be-
come oh-so-versatile, with shades
from cloud to near-black.
Reds, warm and heartening in
the autumn coolness will be used
extensively. Lipsticks of orange
and maroon will be right up there
in the best of style. Contrasting
these colors are the variety of deep
shades which will make up a large
part of the fall wordrobe. Mossy
greens, luscious plum and black-
brushed blues will be seen in
sports as wellas dress clothes.
After dark clothes will compete
with the moon and the stars for
romance. Clothes of gold, irides-
cent and metal failles and taffeta
will light up the night. Stiff
moires, and that darling of queens,
brocade will lend themselves to
foi'mal wear par excellence.
As for fabrics, there will be plen-
ty of tweed for the college set.
Carrying out the dictum of dark-
er colors, many tweeds will have
blac:t'as a basic color, ofter with
flashes of tangerine, pink or pal-
est green to accentuate them.
It will be a warm and exciting
fall in women's clothes.
