League Selects Coeds
For Orientation Week

"This year we are initiating a
special training program for new
orientation leaders," said Linda
Green, chairman of the League
Orientation Committee.
The program will be given from
6:15 to 8:30 p.m.' Tuesday and
Wednesday in the League. Every
woman leader must attend one of.
the meetings. "Attendance is com-
pulsory and will be strictly en-
forced," stressed Miss Green.
Mr. Robert L. Garfield, admin-
istrative assistant in charge of or-
ientation will speak on the sum-
mer and social aspects of the or-
ientation program.
"Prof. Allen Menlo of the edu-
cation school is also helping us
plan the program," added Miss
Green. e.
Duties Explained
The committee will explain how
to handle special cases that arise
and will clarify and explain the
actual duties of the orientation
leader.
"The Union and the League are
working together on orientation,
but this meeting is only for the
women leaders," said Miss Green.
The Union committee, under te
direction of Barrie Shapiro, is
still in the process of choosing
their leaders.
"The leaders are chosen tenta-
tively by the committee," said
Miss Green. "Actually we never
really know how many leaders we
will need until we find out in Aug-
ust Now many freshmen are en-
rolled," she continued.
Leaders Chosen
"The success of our new pro-
grai will depend upon the leaders
we have chosen," concluded Miss
Green.
The following students have
been selected:

'Mondrian's Madness'
Paintings by the Dutch artist,
Mondrian, will set the atmosphere
for a semi-formal dance presented
by the College of Architecture and
Design from 8 p.m. to midnight
tomorrow in Lane Hall.
"Mondrian's Madness" is the
first event sponsored in part by
Architects Wives, a unique organ-
ization on campus. The group un-
der the temporary leadership of
Mrs. Joan Messenger was formed
to create closer relationships be-
tween the students and faculty of
the Architecture School. It is the
only campus organizataion that
exclusively limits its membership
to the wives of men in a certain
college.
Thegdance, which is also being
sponsored by the American' Insti-
ute of Architects, is the first joint
event between the two depart-
ments in fifteen years. They for-
merly co-sponsored the Beaux
Arts Ball. However, this annual
event was discontinued due to an
increasingly large enrollment of
students in the college.
Mondrian was chosen as a
theme for the affair as he greatly
influenced both modern art and

picting various types of art.
The dance is open primarily to,
the students and faculty of the
College of Architecture and De-
sign according to Mrs. Arlene Bor-
kin, general chairman of the af-
fair.

By NANCY STAMM
Completely relaxed and in a jov-
ial mood, cartoonist Al Capp chat-
ted with students over a cup of
coffee in the Union last week.
The creator of Li'l Abner char-
acters leaned back in his chair and
with characteristic humor proceed-
ed to describe his impressions of
the University.
Suddenly becoming serious Capp
said, "I got interested in helping
these kids last year." Since then
he has served as Mass. State
Chairman and Eastern Chairman
for the National Association for
Retarded Children.
Creates Lil Abner
Capp's creations, the Li'l Abner
characters, are read and enjoyed
by young and old in over 700 news-
papers in this country. Among his
avid fans are Britain's Queen Eliz-
abeth, novelist John Steinbeck and
comedian Harpo Marx.
Turning to himself, Capp de-
,scribed his own career. "I decided
to make a living drawing when I
read that Bud Fisher, creator of
Mutt and Jeff, made $3,000 a year
and had married six French count-
esses in a very short period."
He added with a twinkle in his
eye, "It isn't the money that in-
trigues me, but the French count-
esses." After deciding that he could
draw as "poorly as Fishei'," Capp
then 19, attended several art
schools.
Birth of Comic
Prior to the birth of Li'l Abner,
he and Bill Harrington turned out
his first comic strip, "Jobs of
Jasper." Then came studying, mar-
riage and finally Li'l Abner.
Upon his arrival in the city Capp
was welcomed by the Spring Week-
end Committee who had, his day
well maped out. For Sigma Chi, his
luncheon host, he had a wry smile
and succinct comment: "They are
wholesome and comfortable."
For the University coed, who he

observed with a raised brow and
critical eye while touring the cam-
pus: "They are beautiful, talented
and magnificent."

passenger during the p a r a d e

AL CAPP AND ANN ARBOR:
Cartoonist Sees Campus at Play

"It sounded blood curdling -very
nice!"
Capp was in Ann Arbor on be-
half of his favorite charity, the
National Association for Retarded
Children to which went the profits
of Spring Weekend. He appeared
as master of ceremonies at Skit
Night and participated in the
parade and judging of the chariots.
Journalism students who were
scheduled to hear the cartoonist
speak at the 13th Annual Inter-
scholastic Press Association As-
sembly, were told that he had
missed the train. Quipped large-
framed, exhuberant Capp: "Oh, I
caught the train alright; but the
train didn't make it on time."
Featured in 1200 Papers
Li'l Abner was taken by United
Feature Syndicate. Running it
first in the New York Daily Mirror
on Aug. 12, 1935, it rapidly became
popular. Today, fresh and spon-
taneous as ever, Li'l Abner and Al
Capp are giving readers of more
than 1200 newspapers, here and
abroad, a daily chuckle.
When asked if he ever depicts
his wooden leg in his comic strip,
the rudy complected man in his
late forties remarked, "Not con-
sciously." Capp's wooden leg is the
result of a childhood accident.
Grandpop Capp
Changing the subject, Capp en-
thusiastically spoke of what he had
been doing in his free moments.
Grandpop Capp visited his eldest
daughter, Julia Manning and her
family. They live in Ann Arbor.
Capp's grandchildren are one
year old Kate and two year old
Tamsen. With a parental aire he
boasted, "Tamsen is a talented

Ending the yeair on a high note, campus fraternities are featuring
everything from romantic pledge formals to original and traditional
native costume parties.
For their pledge formal tomorrow night, Phi Kappa Psi is playing
up the spring theme with a splashing waterfall and stream high-
lighting the decorations.
Phi Sigma Delta is going a little less formal this weekend with a
"Jail-Break" party tomorrow night. The decoration committee is

Bahama Bound
At an outdoor Bahama party Phi Sigma Kappa men and their
guests will enjoy an informal barbeque around a big fireplace.
The rich traditions of the old south have provided a romantic
theme for the Sigma Alpha Epsilon formal also tomorrow evening.
The members' dates will all wear white formals to carry out a black
and white color scheme.
Alpha Tau Omega will honor Sigma Nu tonight at their Blackfoot
Ball. To end the weekend celebration, forty canoes have been rented
by Sigma Nu for a trip down the Huron River tomorrow.
Utilizing their sets from Spring Weekend Skit Night, Delta Tau
Delta is holding its spring formal in a Japanese tea garden atmosphere.
Spring Fantasy
The Delta Upsilon pledge formal Is also this weekend. The men
have chosen "Spring Fantasy" for their theme.
A dinner, picnic, ball game and chapter meeting are scheduled
this weekend by Tau Kappa Epsilon to honor their founding alumni.
