Way, Jessie Zschoerner, Ruth Augs-
purger, Jean Abraham and Willy

be worn to practice sessions of the
rifle club.
Doris Allen and Dorothy Kelly will
represent softball, and Margo Thom
will model the modern twimming

WAA President

Of MEN and MICE...
It ain't long now 'til you'll be a college freshman, a real, honest-to-
goodness collegiate gal running around the Michigan campus like you
owned it, but before you get too sure of yourself and know-it-all, (and you
will-everybody does) while you're still green (and you will be) we want to
be the first to give you a bit of advice and tell you what it's all about (we're
so sure ourselves!) ... we know you won't take it, but we just want to make
the gesture! When you breeze into Ann Arbor by train,
car, bus, plane .. . or via thumb, you'll be all wide-eyed
o U Kand excited . .. bubbling over with where you're going
C H 0 CE to live, what upper classmen you know, how new it all
is, if your favorite man is here too, AND if Roosevelt or
Willkie is going to be the head man for the next four
years . . . go easy on this ... !Washtenaw County has
voted Republican for so long it doesn't even know that
/ '. ki there's any other alternative. We're about the only
dyed-in-the-wool Democrat here, and if we don't shut
up about it, we won't be here! So, enough about our
political views-what we want to tell you is how to live,
and you really can LIVE in A. A. The first thing you'll
go through is Orientation week. You'll meet reams of
people, be told lots, get very mixed up, acquire sore feet.

Serves As Activity Center,
Club House For Women,
Alumnae Headquarters
Dedicated to the unity of Univer-
sity women, the million-dollar Mich-
igan League serves as club house and
activity center for all women on
campus and the headquarters for
alumnae organizations throughout the
Its chapel, theatre, ballroom, cui-
sine, lounges, and accommodations
are integral parts of the building
which undergraduates and graduates
by virtue of their membership have
created and preserve. for the partici-
pation and enjoyment of the campus.
Seating 700, the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre is the scene of the Cinema
Arts program featuring outstanding
foreign and domestic movies, as well
as class projects and the repertoire
of Play Production.
Beautifully decorated, the spacious
wood-panelled Mary B. Henderson
Room, the Ethel Fountain Hussey
Room, the Grand Rapids Room and
the Kalamazoo Room provide facili-
ties for meetings, parties, such as
dancing, bridge, and dining in the
social calendar of Michigan wo-
Drama, fiction, biography, travel
and periodicals can be found in the
women's library on the third floor
about the panelled room where un-
dergraduate women gather for seclud-
ed study and reading.
Surrounded by its high stone wall,
the informal garden of the League is
well-known for its trim shrubbery
and flowers, as the warm-weather
meeting place of women and their
friends and the setting of numer-
ous garden weddings.
With headquarters in the League,

There'll be swell advisers to sort of give you the lay of the land and watch
over you, and do their best (after all they're only human) to settle all yourc
Comes Orientation ... d
By the time Orientation week is over school really starts . . . and witho
it oodles of upper classmen come back . .. you see lots of nice men (six tol
every gal) lots of purty gals (despite the "four out
of five women are beautiful and the fifth comes to3
Michigan" statement!) and perfessers, (who are \
nice too ... and also human). With all this comes .'
rushing, which is lots of fun. It'll be a hectic week, 5
but you'll find time to get your hair done and drift L
into the formal rushing dinners the last two nights
of rushing looking like a dream, very sophisticated,f
calm and poised .. . no one will know that your
stomach is probably full of butterflies, and you're terrified, but remember
the rushers went through the same experience once and should understand
. besides they probably feel just as weak in the knees as you do! As the
first few weeks come to life you'll get introduced to all the places to go ...
dancing at the League and Union is always popular, lectures, movies, con-l
certs, and drinking beer at the Bell make up a beginning list. But it's onlyj
the beginnin'.
S -Pretty soon after school begins . . . just about when you've gotten all
broken into everything, the Union Formal comes up. It's the first really big3
dance and its wonderful. About the same time the football
games start . . . and don't miss a one-you'll never forgivel
yourself! Michigan is going to have a swell team, you can
count on that, and you'll have the time of your life at the
games and yell yourself sick. Then just before Thanksgiving7
comes Pan-Hellenic B'all . . . all the sorority goils ask their
favorite men and dance to soft music in the League Ballroom.t
The females foot the expenses, so it's usually "THE MAN" that
you ask; And just a hint which you'll forget . . . You'll love it
here, but, unfortunately, just loving it ain't enough to keep
you here . . . the faculty and higher-ups like devotion to the
school 'cause everybody loves it, but they like what should go
hand in hand with it too, scholastic effort! In plain toims,
kid, ya gotta study besides play. We agree that all work and
no play makes Jill a dull girl,'BUT all play and no work makes Jill go home
permanently after the first semester. And you don't want to go home do
you . . . or do you?
Comes Cupid .. .
All this seriousness that Aunt Jemima is giving you is all for your own
good, and leads up to what happens after you go home at Xmas to tell your
families what a super, wonderful, swell, colossal, neat . . . and don't forget
educational, place this is. What we are leading up to is that when you come
back there are exams ... You'll probably age
a lot exam week, you'll never be quite so
carefree again, but always remember that
exam week is only the prelude to J-Hop4
weekend ... there are house parties galore,1
dances, breakfasts and tobogganing par-
ties and just everything to make the week-
end perfect! If you don't get asked your
first year, remember that you have three
more years to secure a man who has the
sufficient funds to feel like squandering
much cash on just you, and "much cash" it is too! If Cupid doesn't do his
stuff for you this year he's sure to make it up next year-don't give up hope!
Just remember that by the time people have seen you in Frosh Project
(which you must go out for as it's a swell way to meet the gals in your class
and is more fun than a picnic) or have your name on The Daily staff or the
Gargoyle staff, 'cause certainly you're going out for lots of activities, why
everybody'll want to know you!
After J-Hop comes the second semester. You go through the awful
