"Don't Myth It!," this year's
presentation of Soph Cabaret, will
be held Dec. 10 and 11 in the
League.
The event will run a full week-
end with floorshows, dancing, re-
freshments and special booths
providing a variety of entertain-
ment for all.
THE FLOORSHOW, "A Date
With Jupiter," will be presented
at 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. both
nights. The experience of a Mich-
igan coed trying to study her

aret, according to Betsy Vial,

League for the hours that they
can work.
mythology and baby-sit at the
same time will be portrayed as
the coed tells the baby about what
she did on a visit to Mt. Olympus.
Original songs and dances written
and directed by sophomore women
will be featured.
Following the mythology
theme, the ballroom will be dec-
orated like Heaven with life-
like pictures of gods and
goddesses around the walls. Ted
Smith and his orchestra will set
the dreamy mood.
Other rooms will be transformed
into Appollo's Sun Palace, the
Mars Bar, where refreshments will
be served, and Pluto's domain of
the Underworld. The concourse,
tying the whole theme together,
will be decorated as Earth, lead-

ing to the difference places out of
this world.
NO MYTHOLOGY theme would
be complete without the famous
Oracle of Delphi, and she will be
present to tell couples what the
future holds in store for them.
A special feature will be a
telegraph booth where messen-
gers will be ready to carry tele-
grams to anyone at the Cabaret.
Other special booths will include
the traditional fishing pond, a
popcorn and cotton candy conces-
sion and a photographer. Cigarette
girls will circulate through the
concourse, selling flowers and cig-
arettes. One booth will be devoted
to souvenirs of the Cabaret to
make the evening long remem-
bered.
CAMPUS SALE of tickets will
begin Monday, Nov. 29, at the
League, Union and University
Hall. Ticket prices include admis-
sion to the Cabaret and one floor-
show.
The proceeds from this year's
Cabaret will go to the University
Fresh Air Camp.
The. Cabaret. is .traditionally
sponsored by sophomore women
and also written, directed, and.
produced by them. Several hun-
dred coeds, headed by Ethel Mor-
ris, general chairman, and Miss
Margaret Morgan, assistant social
director of the League, are now
completing final production plans.
Vacation Clothes

From behind the interviewing
desk in the Undergrad Office
chairman Mary Carolyn Wright
sees a passing parade of potential
League leaders.
From the interviewing commit-
tee stems the actual organization
of the League Undergraduate
Council. Responsible for choosing
the personnel to fill all League
posts, the committee is ultimately
responsible for the success or
failure of League organization.
IN THE FIFTEEN minute in-
terviews, backed up by written pe-
tition, Miss Wright and her asso-
ciates must judge the important
qualities that will make for good
leadership.
Talking with the League job
applicants requires a subtle
psychology, according to the in-
terviewing chairman.
It is up to the interviewers to
bring out the real character of
the interviewees who may appear
with shaking knees or on the con-
trary with a cocky know it all at-
titude.

presented with the question of ob-
taining the electricians for a
dance, replied that she would
borrow a few from "Engine
School."
The interviewers, do not ask
all the questions; the petitioners
also ask for information. And
the committee must be ready
with a broad knowledge of
League organization to answer
all-when possible.
All is not awesome on this pow-
erful committee, however. The
sight of the seven comely coeds
lounging informally around the
once infamous interviewing table
puts many a trembling aspirant in
the mood for conversation and her
qualities seem to tumble forth, ac-
cording to Miss Wright.
THIS EXTENSIVE training in
how to handle people and recog-
nize their potentialities is a direct
step to personnel work after grad-
uation, agrees Miss Wright with
the other Council members.
In fact, this League position
is valuable experience for any

attempt at post college job-
getting. The interviewing chair-
man has learned to anticipate
questions that come from the
other side of the table-an an-
ticipation that is necessary in
selling oneself for a job.
Miss Wright welcomes all fu-.
ture Council members to drop in
and interview. the interviewing
chairman about her position.

DANCING ENGINEER:
Relaxation Is Newest Asset to Dancing

i

PRINCE MATCHAIE LLI

By LILIAS WAGNER
There's more to dancing than
just moving the feet-in fact, ac-
cording to John Lekas, who teaches
the League's dancing classes, danc-
ing is the best mental and physi-
cal relaxation there is.
'Dancing isn't a retreat," Lekas
said, "but a complete relaxation to
Committees for
Winter Carnival
Will Meet Today

The Skiing and Tobogganing
Committee will meet at 7 p.m. to-
night at the Union. All members

terested in skiing and toboggan-
ing are urged to attend. The com-
mittee will plan events for the

give one a better perspective on
studying or working."
Lekas himself is a prime exam-
ple, of this philosophy. By profes-
sion an engineer and inventor, he
came to Detroit for its automotive
industries and thence to the Uni-
versity here.
EVER SINCE his early days as
an engineer, Lekas has felt thatI
everyone needs something directly
opposite to his work to furnish di-
version. He decided upon dancing.I
He taught part-time for Ar-
thur Murray in New York and
Detroit, and then began teaching

at the League. These will meet
again second semester.
Dancing, Lekas commented, has
to be approached light-heartedly,
even when one is just learning.
Otherwise dancers will not learn
recpetively, nor will they relax. He
feels that not enough people do
' enough good dancing.
Lekas teaches beginning, inter-
mediate, advanced and exhibition
classes. These meet on Monday
and Tuesday nights. Women who
are interested in further informa-
tion regarding the classes may call
