Careful Steps Taken
By Women Attending

In Ann Arbor the dreary weath-
er semes to be incidental as with
Christmas vacation only a Ifew
weeks away, students are pictur-
ing snow scenes in their minds
eye and plans for the gala holiday
season are progressing in all of
the various housing units on cam-
The approach of Christmas each
year is a signal for every group to
plan a "special" dance or formal.
* * *
MANY SPECIAL dances on cam-
pus this season are planned by
the sorority houses. The novelty
of these dances lies in the fact
that many are planned to cele-
brate the holidays and also to
honor the women in the new fall
Chi Omega is planning a com-
bination pledge formal and
Christmas dance along the gen-
eral Christmas theme and call-
ing it "The Night Before Christ-
mas." Decorations will be con-
structed from the pictures sug-
gested in the lines of that favor-
ite Christmas poem, "T'was The
Night Before Christmas."
Many things have to be con-
sidered in planning such dances,
programs must be printed, bands
contacted, and meals arranged for
and a place must also be decided
upon which will hold the party
goers. Such things often show a
variety of ideas and tastes.
TURKEY DINNER is scheduled
for the women and their dates at
the Alpha Delta Pi house. This
Christmas pledge formal wiTl be
held in the newly completed recre-
ation room at the sorority house.
Gamma Phi Beta is planning
to have dinner at a local res-
taurant before their pledge
The Ann Arbor Alleycats will
play at the Pi Beta Phi pledge for-
mal. Dinner at the house will pre-
cede the dance with Dean Deborah
Bacon as a guest. The party will
be decorated, as is the practice at
the house, with traditional decor-

By JOY STANLEA
A Christmas card is one of the
nicest expressions of the holiday
season. It is a friendly and inex-
pensive way of saying hello.
Although many of the Christ-
mas customs have gone through
spurts of popularity, Christmas
cards remain an ever popular hol-
ONE OF THE most important
things to remember in the selec-
tion and sending of cards is that
the card should be a small expres-
sion of the sender. It should be
in some way associated with him.
The personalized touch can be
accomplished by making one's
own Christmas cards. Magazines
and newspapers offer many clev-
er ideas, if no bright idea comes.
A wonderland of cards can be
created from colored stickers,
tinsel, paper doilies and other
dime store items. Materials with
interesting textures, metallics,
foils, bits of evergreen, yarn and
rough felt papers, make an in-
teresting and effective card
which requires a minimum
amount of time to make, and
gives the receiver a feeling that
the card was made just for him.
For those who are artistically
inclined, an art materials shop of-
fers countless suggestions. Spat-
ter painting, linoleum block prints
and stenciled designs adapt them-
selves to a highly imaginative and
IF A PERSONAL touch is de-
sired with a minimum of work, a
call should be made on the local
photographer. A photo of home,
pets, family group or the sender
makes a remembered card which
serves usefully as a snapshot lat-
er when Christmas is almost for-
gotten in the summer heat.
The efforts of a budding ama-
teur photographer might also
adapt itself well to a card. A
simple greeting of the senders
creation can accompany the
In the wide range of cards not
being sold, cards especially ex-
pressive of the individual's taste
can be found.
The thing to remember is that
the Christmas card should be some
sort of expression of the sender.
Something as small as a Christ-
mas card can bring a great deal
of pleasure to the receiver.

FORMAL TIME-In true holiday spirit are the many parties and dances given each Christmas sea-
son on Michigan's campus. Typical of the party goers is this quartet. Anne Bailey is met at the door
of her sorority house by her date, Robert Grew, while Carolyn Swartwout and her escort,- Robert
Peck, wait for them in anticipation of the evenings fun.

Decorations for the dances
center around the traditional
Christmas colors or go into the
bizarre realm with such colors as
shocking pink being used.
At many ofbthe sororitydances

with the house crest or emblem
are popular favors.

WOMEN in the dormitories are
kept as busy planning special
dances as those in other units.

a dressy dance and Alice Lloyd

for their "Winterlace Ball" on

fashioned theme will decorate

Along with the many mechani-
cal duties 'which accompany the
carrying out of every dance,
Christmas or not, comes the big
decision of dress.
Maybe that bridesmaid dress
could be made over to fit in with
the requirements of the season,
maybe that old formal could be
taken in a little, maybe . . .
The dress that was worn before
with that special fellow-would
he mind seeing it again or "could
I stand wearing it with someone
else?" Questions such as this are
as much a part of any as the final
big affair itself.
Once the final date for the dance
has been set, the details have been
arranged, the dress bought, bor-
rowed, made, or madeover,wand
the dates have been called what
more is there to worry about-
the dance is the thing.

As the holiday season ap-
proaches plans are being laid for
