Magazine Recognizes Alumnae
For Architectural Work in UN
Belva Jane Barnes Given Annual Award
As One of Ten 'Young Women of the Year'
A

CHRISTMAS WORKSHOP:
Santa's Fantasy Decorations Invade Union

ROUGHING IT-Blue jeans, Babe theBlue Ox and a rolling of
cigarettes all provide casual atmosphere at the traditional Paul
Bunyan formal sponsored by members of the forestry club.
Couples also have the opportunity of patronizing the longest bar
in Ann Arbor at this strictly informal formal event.

A graduate of the University,
Belva Jane Barnes, was named
one of the ten "Young Women of
the Year" by Mademoiselle maga-
zine for signal achievement in
architecture.
Miss Barnes joined the UN
Planning Commission in Feb.,
1947 when she was only 25 and had
not yet'become a registered archi-
tect.
** * * ,
THE ONLY WOMAN to help
the international planning com-
mittee draw up the UN, building's
master plans, she worked closely
with ten eminent architects and
engineers from all over the world
who made up the Board of De-
sign Consultants.
The award which Miss Barnes
won is presented annually by
Mademoiselle magazine to ten
women in their twenties and
early thirties who have already
made a distinctive mark in their
field and are expected to make
even greater achievements.
After joining the UN Planning
Commission Miss Barnes spent
four months helping to prepare
innumerable charts, diagrams and
designs.
gn.*** * *
"WORKING with the men on
the board and watching the evolu-
tion of this tremendous building,"
Miss Barnes says, "was an archi-
tectural experience to be dreamed
of-except it was four months
with little time for dreaming."
When the final plan had been;
Badminton Club
Members of the badminton
club may play between 7 and
9 p.m. today at Waterman
Gymnasium. Birds will not be
furnished.j

agreed on and adopted by the
UN General Assembly, Miss
Barnes left the project to work
for Le Corbusier in his Paris of-
fices on plans for a fifteen-
story apartment house in Mar-
seilles. She enjoyed the job but
wanted to get back to the UN.
The Headquarters Planning Of-
fice had moved onto the building
site by the time Miss Barnes re-
turned. She could watch (and
work on) "the 39 stories of blue
glass and white marble, one of
the most beautiful buildings in
the world" growing out of "the
fingers and charts and sheets of
tracing paper" she had worked on
before.
Wyvern Plans
Hour of Music
A music hour for the listening
pleasure of any interested stu-
dents is in the process of being
organized by Wyvern honorary
society.
The society has discovered that
there is no place for students,
especially those taking music lit-
erature courses, to listen to music
without disturbing others who.
wish tostudy.
In order to relieve this situation,
it plans to pipe music from the
League ballroom to the concourse
for an hour every week. Selections
will be based on requests from
students.
Posters have been placed on bul-
letin boards in ,the music school,
Angell Hall, the League, main
library and the Union with space
fdr suggestions as to the time
to have the music hour and rec-
ords to be played.

The Union has taken on an at-
mosphere not unlike that of San-
ta's workshop this week as work
progresses on decorations for
"Santa's Fatasy," annual Christ-
mas semi-formal to be held from
9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday in'
the Union ballroom.
One of the projects that the
decorations committee is under-
taking is the construction of a
false ceiling of green and white
crepe paper which will add holi-
day atmosphere to the ballroom.
The downstairs will be appropri-
ately decked with boughs of holly
and evergreens.
Ahuge Christmas tree will add
to the Yuletide spirit of the
dance. 'Snowmen in the hall and
Santa's face over the bandstand
will be other decorative high-
lights.
The decorations committee is
even constructing an artificial
fireplace, complete with fireproof
"fire."
Recorded Christmas carols will
carry the Christmas spirit to the
door to greet couples as they ar-
rive.
Programs for the dance will re-
mind dancers that " 'tis the sea-
son to be jolly." They will be deco-
rated with sprigs of mistletoe.
"Santa's Fantasy" will be this
year's version of the annual
New Shipment
of Imported
Silk 'Scarves
at
3 30 Maynard

Christmas formal sponsored by the
Union Executive Council. It will'
be preceded by a banquet for the
council members.

All-campus 1:30 permission has
been granted for the dance.
Tickets are now on sale at the
Union box office.

quences," in which three con-
testants will take turns answering
questions. Losers will pay the con-
sequences, while the winner will
receive the opportunity to throw
a pie in the face of a forester by
the name of Guth.
Honored guest at theedance
will be Paul Bunyan, hero of
all present and future foresters.,
Bunyan is reputed to have
grown innumerable inches per
day until reaching his present
length of 47 axe handles and
also gained an average of 349
pounds a week.
During the war, Bunyan left
his habitual habitat and traveled
to the south where he worked pro-
viding lumber for the armed
forces.
* * *
WHILE DOWN among the mag-
nolias and mint juleps, the warm
climate began to have a bad ef-

fect on Bunyan. To alleviate the
situation, he began to shave his
chest each day. The task required
the use of two blades which mea-
sured two by four each.
To help pay for the price of
the blades, Bunyan sold his hair
to a nearby factory to be used
as stuffing for mattresses. The
scheme proved successful until
it was discovered that the hair
made the mattresses too hard,
and the firm cancelled its con-
tract.
Tickets for the dance will go on
sale Monday in the Administra-
tion Building, and will also be sold
in both east and west quadrangles
and all fraternity. houses after
dinner. Those purchasing their
tickets in the administration
building will have an opportunity
to guess the number of scales on
pine cones which will be displayed
at that time.
