Wyvern To Maintain Local
Status Following Discussion
Both Sides of Chimes Question
Given By Past Wyvern Coeds


Wyvern, junior women's hon-
orary, has decided to remain as a
local organization instbad of mak-
ing application to become nation-
al, after many weeks of pro and
con debate.
Chimes is the national junior
women's honorary to which Wy-
vein members discussed becoming
affiliated with. It was established
in 1946 at Ohio State and now
has chapters there, at Pennsyl-
vania University, Minnesota Uni-
versity and at five other univer-
Wyvern was organized on the
Michigan campus in 1908 and has
been thinking of becoming a Mor-
tarboard on the junior level for
zeveral years passed.
This year's members brought in
Jo Bell, last year's Wyvern presi-
dent, to give her opinions to the

members. Joyce Atchison of Mor-
tarboard also paid a visit to ex-
press her views.
Those in favor of an affiliation
with Chimes stressed the point
that in such a way the organiza-
tion would maintain more prestige
on campus and have greater op-
portunity for the exchange of
Those opposed to the measure
felt that Wyvern could best main-
tain her strength by keeping the
present local organization. They
also contended that Chimes was
still young and if Wyvern became
members, dues would be increased.
Each year new members have
an opportunity to discuss the is-
sue, but this year the vote was
quite evenly divided and so no
action will be taken.

women are asked to become a part
of Union Opera.
Only secretarial positions are
open. Women with experience in
taking dictation are preferred, but
not required.
Coeds who are interested in
such a job, working with approxi-
mately 100 men in the show, "Lace
It Up" may come to the Union be-
tween 1:30 and 5 p.m. tomorrow.
In 1918 the name of the opera
given was "Let's Go" in which
women actually appeared along
with the men.
Approximately six women are
needed said'James Ebersole, gen-
eral manager, who will each assist
with secretarial work once a week
or some may double up during the
The show will be presented on
campus March 29, 30 and 31 and
then the cast and crew will go on
the road during spring vacation.
Secretaries are especially needed

Union operas have long been a
tradition of the Michigan campus
dating back to 1908 and continu-
ing into the late "roaring twen-
ties." During that time they con-
ducted extensive road tours even
appearing in the Metropolitan
Opera House.
Last year "Froggy Bottom"
showed a revival of the tradition
which is being carried on again
this year with "Lace It Up."

Most Michigan men have been crossing the diag with empty
pockets ever since that certain annual dance which has left in its
wake fond memories, weary students and financial embarrassment.
That state, together with rushing, has delayed the advent of a
new round of social activities.
Several houses have recovered from last week's festivities,
however, and are taking advantage of that first weekend of the

AN "ASSIZE" is slated tomor-
row by the Lawyer's Club. The
dance takes its name from per-
iodical sessions of the judges of
the superior courts in England.
The purpose of the assizes is to ad-
minister justice in the trial and
determination of civil and crimi-
nal cases.
The lawyers, however, will con-
fine their Saturday trials to card

FIRST OF ALL, always use a
brush, say the experts. The brush
is heavily loaded with lipstick
while the lips are in relaxing re-
pose and not a conimonly seen
gold-fish expression. (This distorts
,he natural lip line.)
Trace the upper lip first,
from the outside corner to the
center, and then draw a short,
straight line across the bottom
of the lower lip, directly in the
center, to preserve the natural

pleted, lipstick is used to do the

as that detracts from the full rich-
ness of the color.
TMost coeds would now rea-h
for it tissue and blot their lips,
but this is as outmoded a prac-

to leave the upper imprint on
the lower. Lipstick lasts longer
and looks richer if it is not
Beauty 101 is a course that co-

purchased at any counter where
make-up is sold.
