Mortcr Board Honors Senior
BWOC's for Grades, Activities


Modern Functional Designs
Invade Women's Fashions

Editor To


For those who are not Phi Betas
Kappas, women students on the
campus find their highest reward
for scholarship and activities in
membership in Mortar Board.
As a national senior honorary
society, Mortar Board has three
qualifications by which new mem-
bers are chosen: service, scholar-
ship and leadership.
SERVICE IS measured by the
.society by work done on the
campus; while the scholarship re-
quirement necessitates that mem-
bers' grades be .3 above campus
average. Leadership is determined
by positions held, responsibility
and personality.
The organization of this hon-
orary dates back to 1916 when
women from Ohio State and
Michigan found that similar or-
ganizations of senior women
wearing mortar board pins ex-
isted on both campuses. A move-
ment wasstarted to unite these
groups and add others with the
result that the national society
was formed in 1918 by represen-
tatives from Cornell, Ohio State,
Swarthmore, and Michigan.
Chapters in the national organ-

ization now number eighty and
are located from coast to coast
with conventions uniting them bi-
SERVICE TO TIE universities
is the purpose of the organization,
while projects range from the na-
tional publication, "the Mortar
Board Quarterly," to Christmas
carolling and the awarding by the
local chapter of two scholarships
each spring.
Scholarships are awarded to
outstanding senior women who
are high in scholarship and ac-
tivities and show some element
of need.
Funds for these scholarships are
obtained from the money earned
at the annual Mortar Board-spon-
Sored "Pay-Off" dance, to be held
Saturday, when women repay J-
Hpo escorts.
TAPPING by Mortar Board is
done each spring. Newly bid mem-
bers, numbering up to twenty
women, are recognized by the
wearing of their mortar boards on
campus the following day.
Officers of the local chapter in-
clude Eugenia McCallum, presi-
dent, Ruth Sights, vice-president,
Dulcie Krasnick, treasurer, and
Betty Estes, secretary.

Modern functional design has
caught with the New Look fashion
world and produced a blouse

Billed as a complete blouse
wardrobe in one garment, it is de-
signed for business girls and col-
lege women alike, wearable for
four or five occasions in one busy
A SEMI-TAILORED version for
work or school, a slightly sporty
change for that luncheon date or
for the speech class appearance
which requires something differ-

twist for evening. These are all
part of the new blouse wardrobe-
It is styled with a V-neckline

with two scarf-like reveres
which can be draped, tucked,
tied or shaped in all sorts of dif-
ferent styles.
Scatter pins and other Jewelry
can be worn at the neck to further
change the style and appearance
of the garment, which sells for
about six dollars.

PERHAPS THIS is part of a
new incoming era of fashion, fea-
turing shoes with three inter-
changeable heels and the com-
bined skirts-shorts-slacks out-
In any case, it's a practical
trend which is worth noting, par-
ticularly with fashion dollars
scarce and time for changes prac-
tically nil.

The Michigan daily needs advertising copy-
writers. There are good solid jobs open to
students interested. No fancy salaries-no
high-toned titles. Just jobs that carry a lot
of "pull" when you're job-hunting after
graduation. None of our clients get any
night-clubbing, golf or football tickets. Just
advertising that keeps them rubbing their
eyes-and their hands.
That takes writing! Not Shakespeare,
Syron or Perc Shelley. It takes writing
packed with ideas. With showmanship. A
touch of fast, fresh dialogue. A sprinkle of
zip and zang, now and then, or a punchy
headline loaded with dynamite. Words that
make middle-age women see Grable in the
mirror-words that SELL. Words that make
a super salesman out of a headline and a
bit of copy.
