'U' President
Gives Advice
For Rushing
Opportunities, System
Explained to Rushees
By Fraternity Advisor
Friendly words of advice about
the fraternity system were offered
to rushees by University President
Harlan Hatcher as he spoke be-
fore more than 400 students at
an Interfraternity Council Rush-
ing Assembly.
"Where you live, how you live
and with whom you live is one of
the most important aspects of
your education at the University,"
the president told the group.
HE SAID that fraternity living
is what the fraternity man makes
"You can live a very happy
life here if you do not decide to
join," he said. "If you do enter
a fraternity, see that it has at-
mosphere in which you can grow
intellectually and see that the
atmosphere remains.
The fraternity system offers a
wonderful opportunity for young
men to experience congenial group
living," the president concluded.
Following the president's talk,
Joseph Fee, who holds the newly
created post of fraternity advisor
in the Office of Student Affairs,
addressed the group. Fee empha-
sized achievement of scholarship
as one of the main responsibilities
of the fraternity man.
There will be a meeting to-
day at 3:15 in the Student Leg-
islature Building for all those
interested in working on com-
mittees for Homecoming.

-Daily-James Easley
TEA TIME-Mrs. John M. Sheldon pours Mrs. Harlan Hatcher,
and Mrs. Robert Cochran, president of the Michigan Dames, a
cup of tea at a party given from 4 to 6 p.m. yesterday in the
Michigan League by Mrs. Hatcher in honor of the members of
the Michigan Chapter of Dames. The Damnes is an organizaion
of the wives of students, interns, and student wives on campus.
The group has within itself various interest clubs that investigate
such subjects as books, bridge, child study, drama, handicraft,
interior decorating, music and sewing. The Dames meet on the
second Tuesday of each month during the academic year.

Dean To Talks
Before Coeds
Dean Deborah Bacon, in her
speech to members of Assembly
and Panhellenic at 5 p.m. today in
the League, will talk on the sub-
ject "What Is Your Attitude?"
In her address the Dean of
Women will stress h e :x view
toward the problems of falsifica-
tion of identification. She says
that the question is not one of
legality as much as of basic moral
attitudes in our students today.
According to Dean Bacon, the
goal is unimportant. "It is as
wrong to lie or forge fora 20 cent
beer, she pointed out, as it is for
a mink coat."
She considers the existing prob-
lem a non-recognition of morality
rather than a slip in morality.
Today's meeting will mark the
initial get-together for the affi-
liated and independent women on
campus for this year.
After the general meeting of
Assembly and Panhel, the two re-
spective groups will break up into
separate meetings at which time
each group will discuss plans for
the coming year.

Soph Satire Cast Chosen;
Production Set for Oct. 20

One of the five co-recreational
organizations sponsored by WAA
is the Ballet Club, which will hold
its first meeting of the year at 7
p.m. 'today in Barbour Gym Dance
Ann Albert is managing the
club's activities this year and will
therefore serve on the newly es-
tablished co-recreation board.
THE CLUB is open to beginners,
intermediates and advanced dan-
cers, who will work on technique
and composition during the year.
A regular ballet lesson, which
is executed by the members of
the club, is divided into three
parts; the first being "exercises
a la barre."
The second part of the lesson
is called "Adage," a study in bal-
ance. An "Adage" consists of
supporting the body with one foot
and performing a series of slow
movements, which must come
with ease.
* * *
VARIATIONS in the "Adage"
are accomplished by a pirouette
or a "tour sur place," which is
done on the flat of the foot.
The last part of the lesson is
the lively "Allegro," which in.
eludes such steps of elevation as
the ballonne, echappe, entra.
chat and cabriole.
Different works occupy t h e

members of the club, such as var-
ious arrangements of steps, bar,
floor and toe work and the
"Adagio," which consists of men
a:nd women dancing together.
MORE ADVANCED students will
have an opportunity to try their
skill at choreography.
One of the activities in pre-
vious years outside of the week-
ly meetings has been to visit
Detroit for the performance of
the Ballet Russe de Monte
The club has also in past years
worked out programs to be pre-
sented before the public. One
such demonstration was given in
conjunction with t h e Modern
Dance Club, and was composed of
a short ballet based on a skating

cipated in the Inter Arts Dance

Fashions Throughout Years
Prove Controversial Topic

As seen in Glamot


' N,
?4j~r Ow

Comments come from right and
left about the fashions of today,
but the ones of yesterday were
just as controversial, as a glance
at the pages of history will easily
Back in the days of Louis XIV,
the nobility of France garbed it-
self with embellished brocades and
velvets. Necklines hit a low depth
which would rival those seen on
Television today.
* K
THE MEN, were not to be out-
done, though, for they were
dressed in the richest of silks and
satins, and their powdered wigs
rivaled those of the women when
it came to a question of curls and
As America became the crad-
le of a new civilization, styles
were modified to meet the New
World demands. Gowns and
suits became less ornate, but a
strong air of the Old World
was still present.
In the middle nineteenth cen-
tury, travel on horseback was the
most common means of transpor-
tation. Saddle bags did not allow
much room for frills and feathers,
so skirts became less full, and
some of the brocade trimming
was dropped from gowns.
* * *
THE CIVIL WAR era produced
an abundance of uniforms, but
the women remained colorful and
elegant with their bustles and
flowered bonnets.
Bustles were a major fashion
attraction for many years, re-
maining a dominating charac-
teristic of the stylish women up
until the end of the century.
Gracious living was the keynote
at the turn of the century, and
straight skirts became the vogue.
Dress lengths were on the rise,
though, attaining their greatest
height during those roaring and
well remembered twenties.
* * *
AS IS WELL known, the flap-
pers went in for straight beltless
dresses which completely dis-

guised their figures. Though of-!
ten trimmed with rhinestones and
sequins, they were further decor-'
ated by long pearls which reached
to the waist. Rhinestone shoe
buckles were also popular alongj
with the controversial short hair
This new hair style had been
introduced in 1916 by Irene
Castle, amid a storm of protest.
Males declared t h a t women
were on their way to a treacher-
ous and dangerous life.
The crushing blow came when
females invaded that most holy
of all holy sanctums, the barber--
shop. It wasn't long, though, un-
til women had their own barber-
shops, but the men still protested.
* * *
IT WAS at this time that the
"bobbed hair bandit" theory came
into being. The cause of the
charge may be traced t the num-
ber of female convicts at the time'
who were sporting short hair cuts.
Not to be ignored are today's
fashions which once again re-
turn to the feminine silhouette
with full and flaring skirts,
small waists and tight fitting'
Men may scoff at women's
fashion fads, but history can
prove that the female has the Iast
laugh. Maybe it's intuition, or
just the old perogative of chang-
ing her mind, but madame's fash-
ion tastes have always been pro-
phetic of economic conditions.
When there is economic or poli-
tical danger, the "eat, drink and
be merry" theory is evident, and
the female dresses to suit the oc-
casion, but when the nation ac-
tually approaches the crises, she
resorts to the tried and true styles
and ways of feminity.
League Council
Members of League Council
will meet at 7:30 p.m. today in
the Rumpus Room of the Lea-

zabeth Clapham, has grown stead-
ily since its debut in 1927 when
Mrs. Hanley offered her services
as advisor.
Because it was found in past
years that membership was too
large to facilitate adequate in-
struction, the club is open only
to those women who are experi-
enced players.
At the first meeting members
will be divided into intermediate
and advanced groups for the golf
season, which will last from Octo-
ber though November and then be
resumed in the spring.
Weekly meetings are devoted to
practice of the various strokes and
discussions on golf technique and
etiquette on the course. '
Activities of the club include
Pitch and Putt contests, field days
at the University Golf Course and
a season medal play tournament,.
One of last year's projects was
the exhibition by Patty Berg and
her two assistants, Betsy Rawles
and Betty McKinnon. The clinic
was witnessed by a large group of
students and townspeople.
Another event of the club is the
selecting of a. campus-wide wo-
men's golf 'beam, formed by mem-
bers of the club having the five
lowest scorese. The team plays
coed teams from Ypstilanti and
Michigan State annually.
The Tennis Club is open to any
woman on campus, who is of ad-
vance standing.
Club members will receive in-
struction and free use of the
courts several times during the
week in addition to regular prac-
tices and games.
During the rainy season, coeds
will study the rules of the game
more thoroughly and receive in-
formation on entering and draw-
ing up tournaments.
