Hatchers Occupy New Home
Amidst Decorating Process

By MAD DAVIS
After a somewhat hectic two
months on campus, President and
Mrs. Harlan Hatcher are at pres-
ent involved in putting the finish-
ing touches on the President's
House on South University Ave.
During their first weeks, the
Hatchers lived at the Michigan
Union and later attempted to live
quietly at home amidst a confu-
sion of painters, furniture movers
and other workmen busy complet-
ing the job of redecoration.
Done under the supervision of
Miss Helen Stafford, an interior
decorator, the redecorating and
refurnishing of the house has
made interesting use of tradition-
al and modern styles.
RESTRAINED modern furni-
ture of lasting line and design has
Petitions Due
For IFCBall
Petitions for next spring's IFC
Ball are due at the Interfraternity
Council office, Rm. 3-C of the
Union before 5 p.m. today.
Positions as general chairmen
and six committee chairmen are
open.
A proposed budget, an outline
of the projects and a list of man-
power requirements should be in-
cluded in the petitions.
Interviews for all those who
submit petitions will be this eve-
ning before the IFC Executive
Board.

been included in complete har-
mony with the Georgian back-
ground of the house. Antique
pieces from Mrs. Hatcher's family
have been strategically placed
throughout.
Carefully restored, these piec-
es include a crotched mahogany
Victorian sofa, a love seat also
of the Victorian era and a sec-
retary, all in the drawing room.
A mahogany chest has been
placed in the dining room.
This room has been kept in the
Georgian period with interest add-
ed through paneling of wallpaper
and draperies with a Chinese mo-
tif.
BLUE GREENS, golds, coppers
and touches of chartreuse and
American Beauty have been used
as the decorative scheme through-'
out the house. All woodwork has
been painted a chalk white and
the walldcolors give a feeling of
light and brilliance.
In the library, the walnut
paneling has been restored to a
natural color. The president's
study has been left with the
original pine paneling.
Merging of modern and tradi-
tional is typified in the library
where cornice lighting over the
bookshelves and the drapery cor-
nice has been installed. All of
the lighting in the house has been
modernized except for the crystal
chandelier in the dining room.
* * *
THE PRESIDENT'S house is the
oldest building on campus. Ori-
ginally built in 1841, it has been
remodeled many times to meet the
changing needs of the period, and
of the families occupying the
house.
In 1869, James B. Angell in-
sisted on the installation of a
bathroom and furnace before he
would accept appointment and
the Board of Regents finally
agreed after first balking at the
terms.
When Alexander G. Ruthven be-
came president in 1929, the house
was completely redecorated and
the study and plant room were
added to the east side of the
house.

BIG DEAL-Phineas J. Woodwind, of Omigosh, Oregon, packs up his mule train in preparation for
his annual trip to Ann Arbor for the Paul Bunyan Dance, which will be presented by the foresters
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, in Waterman Gym. Phineas says, "I'll really have to push
to get to Ann Arbor by Dec. 1, might even have to give in and use one of those newfangled steam-
trains, but I'll get there." The dance, honoring Paul Bunyan who is the hero of all lumbermen,
features the music of Paul LaVoie and his orchestra. Lumbermen's garb, blue jeans and bright
plaid shirts, will set the style for the dance, while pine trees from the University forest preserve
will create the "woodsy" atmosphere.

PRESIDENT OF Assembly this
year is Joan Mintzer. Working;
with her is a board composed ofe
Alberta Cohrt, vice-president; Ro-
slyn Egelka, secretary; Anita Ho-
ert, treasurer; Repee Levy, social
chairman; Adrienne Shufro, acti-
vities chairman; Athena Savas,'
projects chairman; Trudy Frank-
lin, publicity chairman and Eugen-
la Voreacos, candy booths chair--'
man.
Every year Assembly's social
activities start out with the in-
formal A-Hop, the first all-cam-
pus dance sponsored by the com-
bined efforts of AIM, the Asso-
ciation of Independent Men and
Assembly.
This year's A-Hop was held Oct.
13, and, according to Anita Hoert
was the most successful one in1
Assembly's history. Half the pro- ,
ceeds from the dance go to the
University's Fresh Air Camp and
the other half goes to supplement
Assembly's and AIM's treasuries.
ON THE educational side, As-
sembly works with Panhellenic in
putting on a program for fresh-
men and transfers during Orienta-
tion Week, giving a brief resume of
activities offered by each group
and points on how to petition and
interview for positions.
One of Assembly's most im-
portant activities is their annual
Fortnite, which this year in-
augurated a few new ideas.
A system whereby all big sis-
ters in the dormitories were to
take their little sisters to the per-
formance, is credited by Lila Beck,
chairman of this year's Fortnite

held Oct. 8, to have made Fort-
nite the success it was.
PRESIDENTS OF League houses
and dormitories were presented
this year with president pins. They
are small silver disks with crossed
mallots on the front with each
president's initials and year on the
back.
Scholarship awards were pre-
sented by Ira Smith, registrar of
the University, while Mrs. Har-
Ian Hatcher, in her first student-
function appearance, presented
the house activity awards.
The audience rose in tribute and
applauded as Mrs Hatcher mount-
ed the steps to the stage.
* * *
ALSO NEW this year was the
awarding of a door prize, which
was unusual in itself. It consisted
of a date with Laurie Le Clare,
football player on the Michigan
squad. The prize went to the hold-
er of the program with the win-
ning number on the back of it as
the result of a drawing.
Dean Bacon took the lead in
the housemother's skit. Dressed
in jeans and amid a forest of
human trees, she sang the story
of "Poor Babes in the Woods."
Lila Beck, chairman of Fort-
night, stated that Fortnite this
year was without doubt the most
successful one in years and wishes
to thank the excellent central
committee which worked with her.
