Dorm Residents Honor Director
At Martha Cook Surprise Dinner


Announced by Parents

At a surprise dinner last night,
residents of Martha Cook Dormi-
'.Iwglp asnog azagq paaouoq &104 '
Mrs. Leona B. Diekema.
Mrs. Diekema, who will retire
from her present position at the
close of this semester, is known
for her fondness for formality.
However, last night the tables were'
turned, and it was Mrs. 'D' who
was ushered through a long receiv-
ing line of residents before dinner.
An enthusiastis, well-informed
and well-traveled individual, Mrs.
'D' has been a guiding influence at
Martha Cook since 1939.
Although her job as director is
a time consuming one, she has
managed to find enough hours in
the day to take an active' part in
the Ann Arbor community. She has
served as president of the Michi-
gan Alumnae Club a
Before her graduation from the
University, Mrs. Diekema was sec-
retary of the senior class, president
of Mortarboard, senior womens'
honorary and an active member of
Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.
Grey-haired and charming, Mrs.
Diekema combines a gracious man-
ner with the ability to speak her
mind. She is never reluctant to
express her pride in Martha Cook
and in the individual achievements
of the girls who live there.

Through the years she has re-
tained her enthusiasm and an
inexhaustible sense of humor. Not
long ago, she gave evidence of her
good sportsmanship when she ac-
cepted a membership in a mock
dormitory honorary.
As part of the initiation which
was held dring dinner, she roasted
a marshmallow over a candle and
then downed the gooey concoction
with great dexterity.


A former house president termed
Mrs. 'D' "A unique individual who
has led a remarkable and exciting
life and has also managed to break
me of the life-long habit of folding
my arms in the lunch line.
Following her retirement, Mrs. 'D
plans to live in San Francisco. It is
certain that along with her lug-
gage for the trip, will be included
the sincere best wishes of her many
friends and acquaintances in Ann

The first jet engine ever to power an Ameri-
can plane was built by General Electric in
1942. Since 1948, G.E. has supplied the Air

perience soon will be paying additional new
dividends to national defense. Its J79 -
called the most advanced engine of its type
in the world-will soon enter production.
The man responsible for reporting G.E.'s

ration of direct-mail promotion, brochures,

teresting one. Last year he traveled over

mation and pictures.
