Weekend Brings Three Weddings
Of Interest In University Circles

So Ann Arbor should just die on its feet when its usual gay, noisy
children have left for sunny climes and vacation spots? Not at all, not
by a long shot.
For instance several lads and lassies-namely Dru Handy with Julian
Kilman and Charles Clarke with Charlotte Noble were having a high old
time at a downtown tavern last weekend,
as Bob Straub dropped by for a minute
of gabbing.
And who were those familiar face,#
we saw at a nearby amusement park?-
oh, yes!-Betsy Gregg with Jim Wood-
ruff, Dave Easlick and Peggy Whitker,
Edith Walph with Jim Norris and last,
but not least,. Connie Lorch and Ted
Treadway. Said chillun were whooping it
up in great style-fast is the roller coaster
fascinated Edith-and she stayed with it
six times straight.
Seen milling around the registrar's
desk with very perplexed expressions were
several Ann Arbor gals who spent their
freshman year at eastern and southerI
junior colleges. Penny Shaw went to
Ward Belmont this year and will return
there in the fall after taking several courses on campus this summer. Ann
Evarts, who spent this year at Sullins College, plans to stay here for the
rest of her college days. Then there is Jean Moehlman, a Stevens gal who
is greatly interested in ceramics-pottery to you. Marge
Killins was at National Park College in Washington, D. C.,
no less, and will be seen batting around our good ole
stamping ground from now on.

Soaking In Culture . . ,

/ i

Mary Jordan and Peggy Weismer were soaking in a
little culture Sunday afternoon listening to symphonic
records in the League, as they rested their little bones
in an easy chair or two.
The summer social season was ushered in with a
whoop and a holler Saturday night at the first League
dance. The congestion was terrific as all the students in
town jammed the ballroom. There were so many stags,
hear tell, that the hostesses couldn't get in more than
a step or two with each partner. Ah for the good old sing
line. Same was composed mostly of engineers and law-
yers, too-so there!
Bustling around with "Official" tags pinned to their chests were a
bevy of energetic little femmes. Marion Conde, who occupies the position
of secretary of the Summer League Council, was there in fine fettle. An-
otherrrepresentative of that august body was
Barbara DeFries, publicity chairman of the same.
DeRhuia Skinner, Ann Vedder, Betty Brackett
and Nancy Warner were flying from one stag
to another.
Introducing The Stags . .
Joan Clement was doing a bit of introducing,
as stags Al Watson, Gil Walker, Roger Pryor
..- and Don Nixon hung on every word. Pat Stearns
was seen dancing with Bob Engels, and Jack
Harwood and Francis Faust did a bit of wan-
dering around. Frances Griffin, Roberta Fer-
guson, Phila Karr and Jane Cary Fristoe assisted in the job of hostessing
like veterans.
What with intermediate dancing classes, beginning dancing classes
and square-dancing classes, the campus ought to be pretty nifty on its
collective feet 'ere August rolls around. Sandwiched in between these terp-
sichorean activities will be a bit of duplicate bridge, Play Production, canoe-
ing, golf, b--ring and general raising Cain to occupy the summer student-
then they'll have to come back in the fall to get through!

McCormick and Miss Pascoe have
been in charge of the winter danc-

While Ann Arbor's summer residents are not customarily treated
to such classy visions in the way of sailing clothes as those of Eastern
resort town, shown above is a suit that could be adapted to use here.
It is lightweight and water proof, just the thing for sailing on Baron
Pond or picnicking along the Huron.

500 Attracted
To FirstDance
In New Series
Theophil Markiewicz, assistant to
Benjamin Lovett, supervised the first
in a series of six square dances last
night attended by a capacity crowd
of 500 summer school students.
Mr. Markiewicz has been assisting
in this project for three years while
Mr. Lovett, head of the organization,
began teaching for Henry Ford in
These square dances are sponsored
by Mr. Ford who includes this social
project in the curriculum of his in-
dustrial school at Greenfield Village.
Mr. Lovett and a staff of eight assist-
ants have instructed this type of
dancing as a course in 100 schools in
the vicinity of Dearborn, as well as
in many colleges including Wayne
University, Ypsilanti Normal and
Western State Teachers' College. In
Kalamazoo, students receive credit
. for this course as a part of physical
education and training. Mr. Ford
pays the expenses for the entire or-
ganization and all classes are given
free of charge.
"The purpose of the square dance,"
said Mr. Markiewicz, "is to emphasize
social grace. Through dancing, we
can teach social training to the stu-
dents and at the same time break
down a timidity which so often exists
among children of grade school age."
As an annual affair at the end of
the school term, all Dearborn schools
.~are represented at a performance
held at Fordson high school in Dear-
born. The object of this program is
to show the parents and friends of
participants what has been accom-
plished during the year. On various
occasions, students are invited to
Lovett Hall ballroom in Greenfield
Village to dance before Mr. and Mrs.
Ford who take great pleasure in at-
tending such affairs.
Out of an extensive repertoire of
old time square dance steps, Mr.
Markiewicz named the old rye waltz.
