Masher Women To Give Skit
For League Formal Show s

Hawaian Coed

Record Here

Sigma Chi Pledges To Bow

Mosher's winning Fortnite skit
will provide intermission enter-
tainment at the annual coed-bid
League Formal to be held Friday,
Oct. 28, in the League Ballroom.
The skit, which was presented
at Assembly's show last week, un-
der the direction of Mickie Sager,
is entitled, "Heaven is to Mich-
igan as Hell is to Minnesota."
AS ITS TITLE suggests, the
dramatization is a take-off on the
departure of Adam and Eve from
the Garden of Eden. Michigan-
Minnesota rivalry is brought into
the production giving it a touch of
campus spirit. The skit is to be
presented again with appropriate
props and costumes.
Guests will dance to the music
of Ted Smith and his orches-
tra, a band well-known on cam-
pus. Smith played for a num-
ber of big dances last year.
Tickets will go on sale tomorrow
from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5
p.m. in the League lobby and at
the Student Activities Booth in
the Administration Bldg. Repre-
sentatives in each of the women's
dormitories will also be selling

Choosing Silver



Of some 250 women entered in'
the all-campus swimming meet
Thursday, one star, Erminie Crock-
ett, was outstanding in every event
she swam.
Placing first in the 25-yard free
style, the 50-yard free style and
the 25-yard breaststroke, Miss
Crockett, a native Hawaiian, came
up against almost no competition
in any event.
A swimmer from childhood,
Michigan's top coed in the water
started actual competition as a
junior in high school in the islands
and went on to hold the terri-
torial 100-yard free style record
in the AAU.
With her home about one mile
from the beach, Miss Crockett has
nevertheless done most of her
swimming in a pool, which may
partially account for her look of
complete ease and grace in the
Union pool used by the women
Thursday night.
A sophomore in architecture
and design, she first came to the
States for college work and has
no plans for going on in the
sports field. She exclaimed, "I just
thought I would give it up."
Other honor winning swimmers
in the meet were B. J. Schmidt,
winner of the diving event, Joan
Daley of Stockwell who placed
first in the 50-yard breststroke,
Margaret Schuster, Jordan, first
in the 50-yard backstroke and
Marilyn Flynn, Delta Gamma,
winner of the 25-yard backstroke.
Kappa Kappa Gamma took the
relay title and also the meet title,
while Delta Gamma and Mosher
placed second and third.
Officials' Club
The written exam for a vol-
leyball national rating will be
held at Z p.m. Wednesday at
the WAB.

The Sigma Chi's will open their1
doors this afternoon to all woment
on campus.-
Invitations have been extended
to all dormitories and sororities for
an open house to be held from 21
to 5 p.m. honoring the fraternity's
22 new pledges.
MANY OF the women are skep-
tical about the motives behind,
such novel invitation, but the Sig-
ma Chi's claim to be perfectly
sincere in their hospitality.
"If they are willing to take the
chance of asking all of us," stat-
ed one dormitory social chair-
man, "we are willing to take a
chance in accepting."
Several groups of coeds have
planned to turn out en masse, 50
to 75 strong.
* * *
THE SIGMA CHI's expect ap-
proximately 600 women, and are
making plans for a general get-
acquainted party.
Skits will be presented during
the afternoon by the actives and
coffee I.nd hors d'oeuvres will be
served. The Delta Gamunas have
been asked to serve as hostesses.
The Sigma Chi's would like their
party to be thought of as sort of
a "coming out" party for their
pledges. They believe it to be
something new along the social
line and would like to see it be-
come a campus custom.
One of the social chairmen of
the dormitories sighed, however,
feeling sympathy for the pledges,
wondering what provisions had
Bigger Feet?
Maybe women today have bigger
feet. Or maybe they're just losing
their false pride. Larger shoe sizes
are being bought now than several
years ago. If a woman knows she
wears a size 61/2 or 7, which is
average, that's the size she asks

been made by the actives for pro-
tection of the 22 pledges against
such a hoard of females.
"We have asked all our coeds
who plan to attend to sign a pledge
that they will behave," she stated,
"and keep the welfare of the pled-
ges at heart at all times."

To Be H


An organizational meeting of
the Badminton Club will be held
at 5 p.m. tomorrow in the Bar-
bour Gym.
This will be a short introductory
meeting to acquaint and organize
the members, after which weekly
meetings will be held.
The Badminton Club expects an
even more successful year this
winter than it had last year, ac-
cording to Virginia Becker, man-
ager of the club.
The main purpose of the club is
to provide instruction for be-
ginners, added practice for those
who are already acquainted with
the sport, and genuine interest
and enjoyment for everyone.
Plans for this winter include
two informal parties after meet-
ings and one to climax the sea-
son. A tournament within the club
members will also be held during
the latter part of the season. To
end the activities, there will be
an all-campus tournament in

Shoulder Pads
Shoulder pads should be removed
when dresses or suits are sent to
be cleaned. Some new pads of
sponge rubber ignite spontaneous-
ly in the cleaning process and
others dry out. For safe cleaning
all pads should be removed.

face is picking the exact pattern
they will use," the jeweler said.
Most women have a fairly
clear idea of the pattern they
want when they enter college,
but after talking it over with
roommates and other friends
they often doubt the worth of
their initial decision.
To help make up their minds,
some women buy place settings
in three or four patterns, on one
of which they build their entire
ONCE IN A WHILE a pretty
violent argument flares up when
a couple come in and decide on
separate patterns, and a com-
promise has to be arranged by the
salesman," the jeweler related.
"We're thankful this doesn't hap-
pen too often."
Most men, however, are pas-
sive during these occasions, and
go along with the woman's
choice, he added.
After the pattern has been de-
cided, a teaspoon of that design
is usually purchased and taken
home to show friends. Many wo-

men build up their sets from gilts''
that school friends give them.

THE JEWELER stated that or-

nate patterns are more popular
with the majority. Art students,
however, seem inclined to pur-
chase plain patterns.
