Thornhill, who is reputed to
be onreof the oustanding mu-
slievAns bf -the year, has a life of
musical experience behind him.
At the age of six he gave his
..st reoital, and from that time
96 ~he Iasdevoted his time and.
effort to music.
His first interest was in the con-
ceit field, but he soon began to di-
r. his talents -along the lines of
modern dance music.
DURING HIS TIME in the Navy
while he directed the Navy's musi-
cal- aggregation, the Rangers, he
Inmproved and developed his style.
Upon hisreturn to civilian life he

So many articles, books and fea-
tures have been written about the
weaker sex, that if attempts were
made to read them all, women
wouldhave time for little else.
There always seem to have been
comments about the way they
walk, talk and dress.
MALES HAVE often voiced their
aversion to women covering their
legs with trousers or long skirts,
smoking through long cigarette
holders, and painting their lips
and nails a ruby red.
When these opinions are aired
vocally, woman is tempted to
completely ignore them, but
when faced with a page of print
she is apt to let assignments go
unfinished, dishes unwashed and
professional tasks negleoted.
Fewer' articles are written on
men, for the members of the male
sex would prefer to scoff at such
ridiculous accusations as being
lazy and always broke. Further-
more they never seem to suffer a
doubt as to their position in so-
ciety and durability.
AS YET, no one, has written a
book or literary work entitled
"Men Are Here To Stay." They all
seem to feel that every male is ir-
resistible without the use of mouth
wash and hair oil.
In the meantime, women
spend their lives - progressing
through the stages of heels, pin
curls and argyle socks.
When at last man relents to be-
stowing a proposal, a woman has
to undergo a sudden conversion

GIFTS FOR CHRISTMAS -Newberryites, Marilyn Campbell,
Mary Ann Beatson, and Roberta MacGregor, put the finishing

Christmas shopping in Ann Ar-
bor began early this year.
As part of a dormitory and sor-
ority sponsored plan, manyhouses
on campus have already purchased
yuletide gifts for war orphans ov-
erseas. The orphans are European
children who no longer have fam-
ilies to care for them adequately.

AN AGENCY in New York, the

Through contact with the
agency, many houses on cam-

that will carry over to the Union

Decorations will carry out the
atmosphere of school spirit. A

pict Michigan's superiority over
Wisconsin. It will show a robust
heroic Michigan athlete, partak-

counterpart languishes in the
background consuming beer.
