To Give Advice,
Aid Neophytes
Unaffiliated Organization
Will Conduct Station In
Lobby OfLeague
An information booth for the con-
venience of freshman women will be
established during Orientation Week
in the League Lobby by Assembly,
independent women's organization.
Members of Senior Society, honor
society for unaffiliated women, will
be in charge of the booth and give
out general information explaining
activities and registration.
The Executive Board of Assembly
this year will be headed by Patricia
Walpole. The Assembly Administra-
tive Board is composed of the Execu-
tive Board and chief officers of each
of three independent groups: dormi-
tory residents, league houses, and
Ann Arbor Independents, which are
governed by their own boards. The
dormitory board is composed of the
women's dormitories on campus, re-
presentation being based on the num-
ber in the dormitory. League houses
are divided into geographical zones
of 40 women each. The president of
each house is a member of the League
House Board. All women not living
in dormitories, league houses, or sor-
orities compose the Ann Arbor In-
dependents. This group has its own
board. Each group meets separately
to settle its own problems and month-
ly sits in joint meeting.
The social functions of Assembly
are the Assembly Banquet and Ball.
The banquet is held during the first'
semester for all independent women

Campus Sage
Tells Of Style
In, Men's Wear
Even though Old Sol is working
overtime right now, Ann Arbor's crisp
autumn isn't far off. That means
now is the time to start thinking
about wearing clothing again-suits
in particular.
Sport jackets and slacks will re-
turn again as king of afternoon wear,
we admit, but when it comes to visit-
ing Ann Arbor's numerous evening
entertainment places, an honest-to-
goodness suit remains the universal
This fall will see a 'close contest
between two general types of dress:
The single-breasted, conservative
suit (covert, gabardine, tweed and
flanel), versus the cosmopolitan
double-breasted dark suit.
Tweed suits, of course, are synony-
mous with college campus-any col-
lege campus. And thiey have been
for years, and they will be this year.
Gabardine and coverts which firmly
entrenched themselves chiefly on the
virtue of being so practidal, will re-
turn again, not as a particularly
strong style, but as an old standby
when you don't really know what
kind of an addition your wardrobe

on campus. Awards are given to repre-
sentatives of the sophomore, junior
and senior classes having the highest
scholastic record for the previous
year. Dormitories and League Houses
with the highest academic average
are also honored. The Assembly Ball
is heldeduring the second semester
for independent women and their
dates. Following the dance a break-
fast is held in the League or in other
specified places in Ann Arbor.

course), - as they tell her wherein the first steps of her success
are to be laid. "Smart and apppropriate clothes, Josephine, lend
you self-confidence, and a goodly supply of self-confidence is a
proper foundation for scholastic and social success." So .
Josephine, being a wise little freshman, asks Where? From her
advisors, from her dates, from everybody, 'the reply is always
the same . . . JACOBSONS'.
To make a long story short, Josephine College takes a quick
trip to JACOBSON'S air-conditioned shop and this is what she
finds ... to make her journey on campus through four won-
