Tenth fnnuai


Night Oct. 29


VarietyShow Will Feature Music, Magic


Music and magic will be two of
the main features of Michigan's
tenth annual Varsity Night, to be
held this year Friday night, Oct.
29, of Homecoming weekend in
Hill Auditorium.
Along the magic line Karrel Fox
will be pulling the bunnies out of
the hat. Fox, a comedian magi-
cian known as the "King of Korn,"
will carry a feature part of the*
program with professional ability.
* * *
MUSIC WILL be supplied not
only by the Varsity Band, the ari-
nual sponsors of the program, but
also by separate student talent in
soo and group arrangements.
Gloria Gonan will star as a
metzo soprano, while a Vaughan
House trio consisting of Stan-

ley Challis, Donald Skull, and
William Brehin will present
their own versions of "Coney Is-
land Babe," "Old McDonald,"
and "Dark Town Strutter's
Harvey and Frederic Stuart will
give a twin rendition of a musi-
cal comedy number "Military
Life," while Clifford Clarke and
Don Wyant will form a piano
team to do "Malaguena," and the
"Fire Dance." Another trio will be
Mack Ferguson, Johnny Teashout,
and Ray Nusca on the piano, gui-
tar, and string bass.
* * *
SELECTIONS OF the band will
be "Marcho Poco," "Waggery for
Woodwinds" featuring various

sections of the band, and "Repar-
tee," featuring a piano soloist,
Floyd Whirley.
Even ventriloquism will find a
place in the night's events when
Earl Gorrberg takes the floor.
If the performance of two years
ago is to be repeated, Gorrberg
is expected to bring down the
house with his talent for this
type of comedy.
In accordance with the "Var-
sity" theme of the program, one
of the co-authors of the song
"Varsity," and a noted alumnus,
Fred Lawton, will act as Master of
Ceremonies. Although it has not
yet been announced, other promi-
nent personalities are expected to
co-operate in putting on the show.

Initiative in Taking Duel Honors

To conserve the soap and wax supply and to save wear and tear
on garbage cans Village school children will be guests at a Halloween
Party Saturday, Oct. 30.
Miss Marion Wilson, project services advisor, heads the committee
planning the annual affair.
The costume parade will begin at 5 p.m. at each school and
lead to the Center Theatre. A free movie treat and prizes for the
twenty best costumes will be provided for the one thousand pupils
of the third to tenth grades of the four village schools.
Cooperating are the school principals, local fire department,
Parent Teachers Association and pastors, J. E. Edwards of Village
Church Fellowship and Waldemar G. Hintz of Christ Chapel.
AFTER THREE Sunday school sessions, Douglas Hicks, age three
and one half, volunteered to give the family grace. His prayer was,
"Dear God, thank you for food and little girls. Amen."
MRS. WILLIAM O. WINTER is in charge of the planning com-
mittee of the fall open house scheduled for 8 to 10 p.m.
Friday. Chairman of the refreshments committee is Mrs. Charles
Pierce. Assisting are Mrs. Lyston Jaco and Mrs. Walter Petrowski.

IF YOU WALK into the community center door and stumble over s
a large box, it's only 300 pounds of fire-clay. The studio workshop
not only has the clay but also a kiln. The latter is on loan from the
College of Architecture and Design.
HALLOWEEN CAME three weeks early on Monson Court.
Small fry on a "trick or treat" mission were greeted with the ques-
tion of their early arrival. The answer came quickly, "We'll be on
vacation then and I don't want to miss the candy."

MRS. BEN FAIRMAN, JR., 1285 Rutland, will be the instructor
for the class in beginning sewing. The group will start their regular
Monday meetings Oct. 25.

Abilities in abundance may well
describe the 18 coeds residing in
Mary Markley House, recent win-
ners of Assembly's two major an-
nual awards.
Both the scholasticeachievement
cup and the activities participa-
tion cup were presented to Mark-
ley residents at "Opening Night"
festivities,nAssembly's fourth an-
nual Fortnite celebration.
The gold cups are awarded on
a percentage basis each year to
the independent residences at-
taining the highest scholastic av-
erage and the greatest extra-cur-
ricular activities participation.
Mary Markley House won the
scholastic award this year with an
average of 2.89.
* * *
THE RECENT honors seem
especially remarkable since the
house is run on a semi-cooperative
plan. Each coed works on an av-
erage of eight hours per week in
the house.
Mary Markley House has
functioned under its present
name since the spring of 1942.
Before that time it was known
as Alumnae House.
The residence has always been
run on a semi-cooperative basis,

however, whereby the women pay
regular room and board and are
paid by the University for the
work they do in the house.
* * *
THIS YEAR'S house president
is Stella Brey and Miss Helen
Heikkinen isresidence director.
Forty-five per cent of the
women in the house who are en-
tirely self-supporting also hold
part-time positions along with
working in the house.
About 80% of the women are
here on scholarships, many of
whom have been awarded individ-
ual honors for scholastic or extra-
curricular achievements. This
year Marjorie McLain; sophomore
at Mary Markley, received an As-
sembly activities award.
Last year Mary Markley House
was awarded the independent res-
idence activity awaird and the
small residence WAA participa-
tion award. The house was also
honored at Assembly Ball by be-
ing given possession of the Queen
of Hearts Booth for selling the
greatest percentage of tickets for
the dance.
Freak Meeting
Ends in Wedding
Frances Mackey becomes Mrs.
Francis Mackey at the Little Cha-
pel of Lakeside here Saturday.
And if you think that's funny-
well, so did she. That's what start-
ed the romance.
Mrs. John G. Mackey of the
Dalles, Ore., happened to see the
name of Army Flier Francis
Mackey in a service paper during
the war. He was stationed in North
Africa. Amused, Mrs. Mackey sent
the clipping to her daughter,
Frances Mackey, a Navy nurse in
Frances was amused, too. Fran-
cis and Frances began writing
letters to each other.
After the war, they got a look
at each other and eventually went
shopping together, for a ring.

The Casbah has had its face
Capricious checks in gay blues,
yellows and reds will dominate
the modernistic atmosphere of
"Schmooland," which will be a far
cry from the oriental touch of the
original Casbah.
Sparkling "schmoos" will pop up
everywhere among the checks -
and perhaps peek from behind the
bandstand to perturb Art Starr
and the Casbah music makers.
Despite its new appearance
Casbah will retain its old title,
which has become a by-word for
campus dance-goers.
Along with the new decorations
have come the new seating ar-
rangement with conversation
groups the dominating factor.
.The familiar table system will
continue for the convenience of
large party groups.
This week's floorshow will be
presented by Blade and Schmiter
and will feature the one politician
on campus who is strictly on the
fence, Ed Miellef, in a saber and
epee demonstration.
Micllef and Norman Barnett
will show how college dueling is
really done. A novelty duel with
balloons at the vulnerable points
will also be presented.
Art Starr and his "Quality
Boys" will enter their fifth week
on the Casbah bandstand.
