Not at all "On the Sea" were

with their Sigma Phi Epsilon ver-
sion of "On Ohio."
FRATERNITIES may work for
weeks on their respective songs
for the Sing, but the sorority
houses are the scenes of frenzied
activity on the big night itself.
For instance, the Alpha Phis
spent the day making blue
headbands and white feathers
to go with the Indian war
whoop they sang and shouted
for Sigma Phi.

Alpha Epsilon Phi serenaded
the Sigma Chis yesterday to

blandly waving their blue and
gold balloons, they, too, col-
lapsed with laughter when the
ever-original Sigs, appeared on
the stage complete with boun-
cing beards and gurgling jugs.
The Phi Psis, according to Al-
pha Gamma Delta, "sing like
Crosby and his brother," even
without the support of cheerlead-
ers Nicki Sotier and Putt An-
derson. With every one dressed in
red and green, the coeds needed no
urging to shout their "sing, sing,
sing" to the fraternity.
The Delta Tris, who supported
the Zeta Psis, almost caused catas-

Many freshmen learn very lit-
tle about the University in two
semesters, but Miss Gigi Marion,
campus reporter for Mademoiselle
magazine, left Ann Arbor yester-
day after only a two-day visit with
a notebook filled with information
about everything from current
Michigan fashions to the local
On a three-week tour of colleges
in the midwest, Miss Marion has
visited eight so far, and plans to
look in at three more before re-
turning to New York City Monday.
PURPOSE OF the tour, Miss
Marion said, is to gather back-
ground material for an article slat-
ed to appear in the August "col-
lege issue" of Mademoiselle, and
to learn about new courses, acti-
vities and fashions on campuses
throughout the country.
Miss Marion's stay here in-
cluded a visit to the University
News Service where she obtained
pictcres for a forthcoming ar-
ticle. She interviewed Jim Eber-
sole, director of this year's Un-
ion Opera, for another planned
Ebersole even escorted her to
one of the most popular downtown
student hangouts where she was
given an opportunity to absorb
some Michigan atmosphere.

SHE ALSO talked with Associate
Dean Mary C. Bromage and Miss
Ethel A. McCormick, social direc-
tor of the League.
One of the highlights of Miss
Marion's visit was a tea Tues-
day afternoon at the League,
where she met the approximate-
ly 20 members of Mademoiselle's

Affiliated or unaffiliated women

ed by Monday accompanied by
three letters of recommendation.
The $125 award is to be used
next fall, during the student's sen-
ior year.

on one of the four or five tours of
the country she makes each year,
she is busily doing research and
writing articles for Mademoiselle.
A graduate of Stanford Uni-
versity, Miss Marion worked on
the New York Daily News before
joining the staff of Mademoi-
In her college days she worked
on the campus humor magazine.
Her aim upon graduation was for
some type of newspaper work, Miss
Marion said, but this soon was
channeled into the specialized
field of fashion reporting.

"WOMEN WHO plan to start at
the top level by getting a job on a
New York City newspaper will be
very disappointed," Miss Marion
She advised them to get local
experience before trying to break
into big city radio and journa-
lism work. New York jobs in
these fields are almost impos-
sible for a novice to obtain, she
In comparing opportunities for
men, however, women have a defi-
nite edge, she added. Women may
enter specialized fields of news-
paper and magazine work, while
men must compete for the broad
expanse of general reportorial
POSITIONS IN specialized de-
partments of Sunday newspaper
sections are much easier to obtain
because of the reduced competi-
tion, Miss Marion stated.
Miss Marion narrowly escaped
learning about campus tradition
the hard way. She innocently
walked through the "forbidden
portals" of the Union. Fortunately
a friend told her about the "sac-
redness" of the front door before
she was subjected to the indignity
of forcible ejection.
