OPTIMISM seems to be reigning throughout the campus this
weekend as many houses plan parties tomorrow to "celebrate our
victory over Army."
KAPPA NU'S and their dates will pass between goal posts to-
morrow night to enter the house, where they will find a football
field complete with star players silhouetted on the walls. Programs
giving the starting lineups (names of couples attending) are to be
distributed and half-time refreshments of hot dogs, peanuts and
crackerjack will be on hand. The social committee added that "there
will be no offensive holding."
ALPHA TAU OMEGA opens the, "formal" season tonight when
they honor their current pledge class at the fall pledge formal. Chair-
man Dick Frank announced that the theme is to be a surprise to the
k pledges. Ted Smith's orchestra will provide the music.
VAUGHAN HOUSE is planing an after-the-game open house
and record dance. Refreshments of punch, sandwiches and cookies
will be served.
S* * * *
"AFTER THE VICTORY over Army" the Phi Kappa Sigma's will
have a buffet supper. The house will become "Club 907" in the
evening when party-goers are entertained in a night club atmosphere.
Dancing will be to the music of Howard Smith and his Triple Shuffle
Rhythm. MC for the evening is to be "Lucky Pierre" Rohring, while
the Bowery Boys, a softshoe dance team, will display their talents
in the floorshop.
"RING AROUND THE ROSY" is the name chosen for Trigon's
cshildren's party tomorrow evening. A large maypole will bedeck the
center of the living room and balloons, lollypops, ice cream cones and
pink lemonade will be available. Also on the agenda is a game of Truth
or Consequences.
DELTA CHI'S and their dates will don blue jeans for the strictly
informal "Corn-Cob Shuffle" tonight. The house will take on a
harvest-ltime look with cornstalks and a wienie roast will be the
feature of the evening. As Dick Humes, social chairman, described
the party "it's a sort of hayride only we're not going anywhere."

A BIG WEEKEND is in store for the ZBT's when they welcome
150 alumni, some from as far back as the Class of 1917. Tonight
they will have an open house and record dance. Before members and
their guests set out en masse for the Army game they will be enter-
tained at a buffet luncheon. A banquet and dance at the Union will
round out a busy day.
FOLLOWING AN ARMY THEME will tbe the Phi. Tau's record
dance tomorrow. Refreshments will be cider and doughnuts.
GAY COLORED LIGHTS will adorn the entrance to Pi Lambda
Phi's carnival tomorrow night. Those who have a good aim or
just feel lucky will have an opportunity to try their hand at some
of the games such as the dart-throwing booth. Large plaster-of-paris
dolls will be awarded to the winners. There will also be booths dis-
pensing pop corn, cotton candy, hot dogs and cokes.
THE CASUAL PASSER-BY might think the Acacias are pre-1
paring for another global war tomorrow evening when they see thei
sand bags and even a machine gun beneath a sign marking the
entrance to the "Fort Acacia Officers' Club." Music-maestro for the+
evening will be Ted Smith, while entertainment in the form of a
series of skits on rushing will be provided by the Acacia Little
Theatre Group.

Independent Women To Receive Honors; Skit
By Housemothers Will Be Featured Attraction

GOTTA DATE-Leaving one coed less to ration out to the Army
cadets is Bill Wolfe, shown buying his A/A Hop ticket from Mar-
ilyn Eisenbach. The affair will take place tomorrow night in the
IM Building and will honor the men from West Point and their
football team with its theme, "Welcome Army." Assembly and
AIM are the co-sponsors of the annual dance which will feature
the music of Bob Strong.
Mary Hinsdale House To Honor
British Labor Party President

A brief jaunt into the carefree
country will be on Assembly's itin-
erary for its annual Fortnite pro-
gram which will begin at 7:15 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 19 in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Fortnite is a traditional presen-
tation which in past years, as its
name implies, 'too place over a pe-
riod of two weeks. Three separate
ceremonies occurred during the 14
days, Recognition Night, installa-
tion of house presidents and the
culminating celebration, Fortnite.
Recognition Night honors those
independent women in each class
who have shown themselves out-
standing in scholarship and in ex-
tra-curricular activities. Also, the
dormitories having the greatest
coed participation in activities and
the best over-all scholastic average
receive awards.
ON FORTNITE, which now
combines the three celebrations,
unaffiliated women gather for an
evening of entertainment center-
ing around a bill of three minute-
long skits which are put on by the
various independent groups. The
program brings the coeds in the
skits and in the audience the
chance to work together and cheer
together in competing for the
prize which is awarded to the
house with the most original pres-
entation.
Always a stellar attraction of
Assembly Resets
Petition Deadline
Petitioning for Assembly posi-
tions on the Student-Faculty tea
committee has been extended, ac-
cording to Jo Wilson, president of
the organization.
Monday noon has been set as
the new deadline and interview-
ing will begin that afternoon and
continue through Tuesday and
Wednesday, Oct. 11 and 12. Peti-
tions may be turned in at the.
Undergraduate Office of the{
League. Coeds who petition are_
asked to sign up for an interview
on the list posted in the office.
Positions which are open are:
general chairman, refreshment
chairman, chairman of hostesses
and publicity chairman. Appli-
cants are asked to bring their elig-
ibility cards to their interview.

Fortnite is the, annual skit pre-
pared and enacted by the house-
mothers. According to the Fort-
nite committee, a new dramatic
group will also offer its talent to
this year's show. As yet the
group's identity has been unan-
nounced.
Fortnite, then, is the evening
on which independents do honor
to the past year of activities and
study by recognizing those among
them who have achieved outstand-
ing records. At the same time, the
present year will be ushered in
with the installation of new house
presidents and skit competition.
THE THEME for this year's
program, "Assembly Goes Country
Style" will set a mood of informal-
ity. Typical Well-dressed Fortnit-
Dean Bromage
To Lead Talk
Mrs. Mary C. Bromage Asso-
ciate Dean of Women, will lead a
discussion of the resident counsel-
ing plan, which was introduced by
the University, at a meeting of the
Michigan State Association of
Deans of Women, which will be
held tomorrow in Flint.
According to the counseling
plan, graduate women, who have'
completed a special training pro-
gram, are employed as counselors
in women's residence halls. They
discuss such problems as those
concerning dating, dress, jobs,
roommates and class work with
residents.
In leading the discussion of
dormitory problems, Mrs. Bromage
will be assisted by Miss Jane Ben-
nell, social director of Jordan Hall
last year and new guidance expert
for the Grand Rapids public
schools, and by the deans of
women at Hope College and West-
ern Michigan College.

Residents of Mary Hinsdale
House, in the New Women's Res-
idence Hall, will entertain Lady
Violet Bonham Carter, president
of the British Labor party, at
dinner Monday.
Following the dinner, there will
be an informal discussion of Brit-
ish public affairs. Lady Violet will
spend the night at Mary Hinsdale
House.
Daughter of the late Earl of
Oxford and Asquith, who was the
prime minister of England from
1908 to 1916, Lady Violet is one
of Britain's leading public speak-
ers on political and social welfare
subjects. In addition to being pres-
ident of the Labor party, an office
which she has held since 1944,
she is the vice-chairman of the
United Europe Movement, under
Winston Churchill's chairmanship.
The United Europe Movement
sponsored The Hague conference
in 1948, which paved the way for
the Council of Europe.
LADY VIOLET served as gov-
ernor of the British Broadcasting
Commission from 1941 to 1946.
She is a member of the Royal
Commission of the Press.
She has also served as Pres-
ident of the Women's Liberal
Federation and as an honorary

president of the United Nations
Association. The latter is an or-
ganization to encourage popular
interest in international affairs
and to stress the need for build-
ing a strong United Nations.
Lady Violet lectured at German
universities in 1947, in behalf of
the Control Commission for Ger-
many. She is also known in Brit-
ain for her earlier speeches in
which she vigorously challenged
the appeasement policy of the
Chamberlain government and con-
demned Hitler's persecution of
Jews.
LADY VIOLET has contributed
to several British newspapers and
magazines, including the Sunday
Times, The Spectator, and Good
Housekeeping. She has appeared
on a number of radio programs.
On her present tour of the Unit-
ed States, which is her second, the
first being in 1912, Lady Carter
will deliver lectures at various
cities.
