Coed Writers
Recognized
By Honorary
Women majoring in journalism
find recognition for their efforts
on the Michigan campus through
Theta Sigma Phi, women's hon-
orary professional fraternity.
Established by seven coeds at
the University of Washington in
1909, the organization has since
gained national recognition in stu-
dent chapters at accredited state
universities and institutions of
equal rank.
The curriculum of these insti-
tutions should provide for an or-
ganized group of courses suffi-
cient for a major in journalism for
a department or school of journal-
ism.
* * *
OBJECTIVES of the fraternity
are: to unite women engaging in
or planning to engage in journal-
ism; to confer honor upon women
who distinguish themselves in
journalism or letters; to achieve
definite standards in journalism
and letters; to improve working
conditions for women in these
fields and to inspire members to
greater individual effort.
Candidates for Theta Sigma
Phi are junior or senior majors
in journalism who are of high
moral ideas, capable of assum-
ing leadership and responsibil-
ity, active and enthusiastic in
college journalism and are in-
tent on making journalism their
profession.
TWO OTHER types of member-
ship are associate and honorary.
Associate members are women
chosen for membership by a stu-
dent or alumnae chapter because
of their professional standing in
journalism or letters in their- own
community.
Honorary members are women
recognized nationally for their
accomplishments in journalism
and letters. Some famous Theta
Sigs are Eleanor Roosevelt,
Alice Tisdale Hobart, Dorothy
Thompson and Frances Parkin-
son Keyes.
Among the annual projects of
the Michigan chapter is the fash-
ion show staged each spring by
members. This spring the show
will be called "A Fashionable Eve-
ning" to be held May 3.
Seniors
Senior Society members will
meet at 7:15 p.m. today in the
League Chapel.

Carnival Scene Staged in Hil
For Annual Appeal Festivities

lel

,

Those who happened to be
strolling in the vicinity of 2101
Hill last Sunday night were no
doubt startled by the unusual
commotion which was heard com-
ing from the house.
Hillel's annual United Jewvish
Appeal festival was in progress
and the entire Foundation was
transformed into a maze of color-
ful carnival-like activities. Tick-
ets for the various amusements
were on sale at the door and, ac-
cording to the ticket-sellers and
the enthusiastic throng of fun-
seekers, business was booming.
* * * *
THE ENTERTAINMENT was
planned to cater to all types of
personalities and pocketbooks.
Weird Hindu chants mingled with
strains of the latest popular songs
and the distinctive sound of fall-
ing dice. Each room in the house
held a different conglomeration of
thriving group enterprises.
As one entered the Founda-
tion they were immediately
drawn to the tempting displays
of food which were donated by
the townspeople and sold by
members of Alpha Epsilon Phi.
After suitable additions to their
energy supplies, members were
ready to cope with the jostling
crowd and try their luck at the
booths and activities of their
choice.
Luring customers with mystic
music of India, white-garbed Sig-

of the Fresh Air Camp will be
shown.

tribal ritlals.

OTHER FEATURES found on
the first floor of the house were a
penny pitching booth, sponsored
by coeds from Newberry and Bar-
bor, a gift booth and an auction
booth.
On moving up to the second
floor, carnival-goers found the
latest in equipment and atmos-
phere in games of chance in the
Kappa Nu's Kasino Noir.
Other second floor attractions
included: Zeta Beta Tau's Nicke-
lodeon, Sigma Delta Tau's dart
game and Tau Delta Phi's Yogi,
whose ability to foretell final
grades created quite a sensation at
the affair.
* * *
THOSE WHO were able to inch
down two flights of stairs, found

ore unusual entertainment i
the basement at Phiffi's Schoo
Dance, sponsored by Phi Sigm
Delta. These who came wit
escorts were admitted for a sligh
charge' and given instruction i
the latest dance steps. For thos
who had no partners, a bevy o
dime-a-dance boys was availabl
According to reports from sa
members of Pi Lambda Phi, the
contribution to the festival, a rin
toss booth, had been rent assunde
by the careless slip of a hastenin
passer-by.
This year two gold cups wei
presented to the group presentin
the most unusual type of diver
sion and the most proceeds fo

Eugene Malitz, president of th-
Hillel student council, announce
the winners. Kappa Nu won firs
prize with Sigma Alpha Mu an
