Hatchers Will Hold Open House

Psurfs To Sing
Christmas Carols
For U Students
Christmas music will provide a
festive background for the Christ-
mas open house to be held from 4
to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7,
at the home of President and Mrs.
Hatcher.
The Psurfs, a singing group of
11 law students, directed by John
McDermott, will entertain the
guests with a variety of Christmas
carols. Old English and Calypso
carols will be included on the pro-
gram.
Members of the Law Club,
Gamma Phi Beta, Phi Beta Theta
and Delta Phi Epsilon have been
especially invited to attend.
Other special guests will be resi-
dents of Mosher Hall, Prescott
and Adelia-Cheever Houses, and
Anger and Groton League Houses.
Also invited are .residents of Tay-
lor, Kelsey, Strauss, Greene and
Williams Houses.
Christmas decortions will be
featured this year but the Hatch-
ers will not have a Christmas tree
at their open house.
Refreshments ccnsisting of
punch, cookies and coffee will be
served by housemothers of the
various residences.
Besides meeting the Hatchers
and mixing with other students,
guests will have a chance to tour
the oldest building on campus,
often called "The Little White
House," the residence is noted for
its lovely rooms.
The open house is sponsored by
the social committees of the Lea-
gue and Union and men and wom-
en students serve as hosts and
hostesses.
Taking care of the arrange-
ments for the afternoon are Mar-
garet Goebel and Phyllis Singer of
the League and Mark Sabin of the
Union.
Calendars
ToBe Sold
Next Week
Having trouble keeping track of
all those appointments, dates and
engagements?
Desk calendars for 1956 will go
on sale next week. Featuring a
choice of yellow or blue covers,
pictures of familiar campus scenes
will be interspersed between the
actual calendar pages.
Additions to this year's calendars
will be pictures of new campus
buildings and of the University
Preside tial family.
Innovation
Another innovation will be that
the back of each picture is blank,
in order to provide space for
memos or reminders.
t Distribution of the calendars
has been tentatively scheduled to
be carried out by house athletic
managers. This will enable every
student in a University residence
to have, an opportunity to pur-
chase one.
The pages, each covering a
week, allow space for writing down
assignments, appointments, ap-
proaching tests and other special
events to be remembered.
Use As Diary
Many coeds have used these
calendars in the past as a diary,
to keep a record of their college
life and day-by-day activities.
The calendars are published by
the University Alumnae Council
and are sold by the Women's Ath-
letic Association and Alumnae
Clubs throughout the nation.
Profits which the WAA makes
will be used for its many projects,
such as the football clinic, Lantern

Night, Michigras and Spring
Weekend.
The Alumnae Council Office uses
the money to maintain a scholar-
ship fund and the Alice Lloyd
Memorial Library in Henderson
House, according to Mrs. Jewel
Stockard, secretary of the Council.

Oldest Women's Residences Keep Traditi

By PAT NORTON
Informality and friendliness are
prominent in the oldest and small-
est women's dormitories on cam-
pus.
Helen Newberry is the oldest
women's dorm on campus being
built during the first part of 1915
at a cost of $100,000. Mrs. Henry
N. Joy, Truman H. Newberry and
John H. Newberry donated the
building in memory of their
mother, Mrs. Helen Handy New-
berry.
Coeds who lived in the house
during the first few years found
the rooms quite elegant. The floor
of each room was covered with a
heavy velvet rug. The furniture
in the room was made of fumed
oak and wicker with touches of
chintz, and from the windows
there were light brown hangings.
Since first opening, the number
of coeds living in the dorm has
increased from 68 to approximate-
ly 115. The rooms, too, have
changed with the time. Today they
are furnished with durable furni-
ture, in place of the rugs there is
tile and at the windows there are
beize drapes.
Formally Initiated
Each year the incoming fresh-
man' and transfer women are
formally initiated into the dormi-
tory in commemoration of Mrs.
Newberry's birthday. An elaborate
dinner is held which Mrs. Joy
attends.
After the dinner the dean of
women and members of her staff
give talks. Then each new coed
signs her name on the log of
Newoerry, and is presented with a
red or yellow rose.
An arch, but a friendly rival of
Newberry Residence is their neigh-
bor to the north, Betsy Barbour.
Being built in 1920, Barbour is

the third oldest women's dorm on
campus. It was constructed by
the Honorable Levi L. Barbour as
a memorial to his mother, Betsy
Barbour.
Welcome Dinner
They, too, have a traditional
welcome dinner for all the incom-
ing coeds. There formal initiation
originated when Barbour was ill
and the women of Betsy Barbour
could not decide what to send him
as a get well present. They fin-
ally decided to send him some
fudge.
He was very grateful for this
gesture so he sent each coed a red
rose bud, saying they were for his
"Betsy Buds." After their welcome
dinner each woman signs the
house log and receives a rose bud,
officially becoming a "Betsy Bud."
Beginning this fall Barbour
Residence was open to',iust upper-
class women. Now housing ap-
proximately 115 women, the tra-
ditions and informality which pre-
vail in Barbour are much the
same as those in their sister dorm,
In between the building of New-
berry and Barbour dorms, William
W. Cook had the Martha Cook
Building erected in memory of his
mother, Martha Wolford Cook. It
was built almost simultaneously
with Helen Newberry, opening up
in September of 1915.
Architectural Gem
Cook is often referred to as an
"architectural gem" due to its
elaborate furniture, paneling,
flooring, glass and marble fire-
places. None of these distinct fea-
tures have ever been changed
without the approval of the ,de-
signers.
As one enters the Martha Cook
Building his attention is immed-
iately focused on the huge statue
of Venus de Milo at the end of
