Still Accepted
B yPlay Grup
Openings in the Ann Arbor Pre-
school Play Group for a limited num-
ber of children from four to five
years old, have been announced re-
cently by Mrs. C. R. Huntwork, secre-
tary of the organization.
The group is a cooperative pro-
ject organized for the purpose of
parent education, which is carried
out through the daily play periods,
and through evenings meetings for
parents held at the League, which
are devoted to study and lectures.
The school, which includes 25 chil-
dren from two to five years old, will
be run each morning during the
Summer Session at the Angell School
playground. A regular nursery
school director, Mrs. F. W. Ouradnik,
is supervisor and the mothers of the
children assist, thus cutting down
the operation cost.
The children receive medical in-
spection by two physicians when they
arrive, and during the day they have
access to the playground equipment,
modeling clay, books, bicycles, paints
and crayons. Twice a week they
study music, and a mid-morning
lunch is the highlight of each day.
Visitors who wish to attend the
class are requested to make an ap-
- pointment with Mrs. Ouradnik. The
goup prefers mothers who will be
able to assist in th work of the
group, but at times special dispen-
sation will be made for those who
cannot, Mrs. Huntwork

Slim Lines Cut Hips

The sleek gored skirts so popu'-
lar with the bathing suit manu-
facturers this year, are equally
popular with those women inclin-
ing to the pudgy side, for cleverly
cut, they do wonders toward re-
ducing the hips.

League will be given the second in a

versity who would like to take these

A group of seven special dances
will be included in the series of week-
end dances at the League during the
Summer Session, Mary Ellen Wheel-

Summer Undergraduate Council, an-
nounced yesterday.
The regular tea dance given Wed-
nesdays during Summer School, will

cial evening will be a "Quiz Pro-
gram," Miss Wheeler said.
July 6 there will be a regular Sat-
urday night dance, but Friday, July
12, will be the date of the annual
Watermelon Cut for all the southern
students on campus. The group will
gather at 8:30 p.m. in the garden of
the League for the cut, and at $ p.m.
will adjourn to the ballroom for a

a "Yankee Night" will be the feats :e

'Globe Trot' To Be Held
Friday, July 19, a "Globe Trot"
will be the theme of the social eve-
ning. A program by foreign students
in the International House has been
tentatively arranged for that night,
Miss Wheeler stated.
Saturday, July 20, and Friday, July

Skits, songs and dances from the
1940 .Junior Girls Play will highlight

Plan 'Sadie Hawkins' Dance
Regular weekend dances will be
given Saturday, Aug. 3 and Friday,
Aug. 9. The campus social season
will oficially close the night of Sat-
urday, Aug. 10, when a "Sadie Hawk-
ins Dance," borrowed from the fam-
ous comic strip "Li'l Abner," will cli-
max the summer League program.
This dance, when women students
will have an opportunity to ask their
own dates, has become a tradition on
many campuses, but it will be the
first time that such a feature will be
tried here.
The program was arranged by
Miss Wheeler, and approved by the
Summer League Council of 12 un-
dergraduate members.

Of MEN andMICE...
What a weekend, all we can say is what a weekend! W have decided,
after careful study, that everyone in A.,A. believes in the old theory that
all play and no work is swell and that right here is the place to play in.
Things started off with a bang Friday night with the Reception, which
was a huge success. We saw Penny Shaw, Marty Piersol, and Dee Skinner
ill docked up in summer formals going into the Rackham Building to do
their bit to introduce guests and make them feel at home. Mary Ellen
Wheeler was there, leoking lovely in a white formal made in Grecian style.

post of Social Chairman, never revealing the fact
that at ten o'clock she was going to have to tear

After the Reception the crowd migrated to
the League and Union and, of course, the local
h\taverns. As we took a quick peek into the Union
Ballroom we caught a glimpse of Marion Conde
and Harold Spoden enjoying the music of .Red
Ritz. In the League lobby we saw Allan Korn-
feld holding hands with Dorothy "Dixie" Walker.
South of Division we saw Pooh Griffin and Bill
Gram (who was responsible for that two-column
spread on the edit page Friday) making merry.
Marty Graham and Roy Neff were down im-
out at the Dearborn Country Club, dancing to soft

Local Shops Carry
Informal Outfits
For Sportswomen
Fashions have again come to the
aid of the sportswoman Many ath-
letic women have a difficult time
finding clothes that will look re-
spectable in town and also be suit-
able and comfortable for the beach
and sports wear. Now, however, al-
most every problem is taken care of
by designers.
In many of the local shops one
can find playsuits which have addi-
tional skirts. These completely
change a playsuit into a dress and
can be found in a variety of styles.
Some come with a separate play-
dress which goes over a brief play-
suit, others have pinafore skirts, and
some feature plain, tailored, button-
up-the-front skirts.

Efficiency ....?
Before we get too involved with "who went where with what and why"
we'd like to clear up a little matter with a certain Mr. Robert L. Williams,
the assistant registrar. We always thought the University was pretty effi-
cient . ., . well, quite efficient, but said Mr. Williams has taken away our
faith. You see, we've been here two years now and had (past tense) a sort
of egotistical idea that we were pretty well known. We felt that when peo
ple passed us on the street they immediately said, "did you see that girl,
Well, SHE'S on the DAILY!" and other such complimentary remarks ....
but no more. here's our open letter to Mr. W.:
Dear Mr. Williams:
On June 26 we received three little blanks and a letter pertaining
to the fact that we had completed sixty-three hours and were eligible
to concentrate. At the end of the letter there is a clause which reads,
"....should there be any other questions concerning your ACADEMIC
record do not hesitate to inquire in the Registrar's office for an explana-
tion." But, Mr. Williams, our question is not about academic matters!
All our blanks and our letters were addressed in meticulous trying to
"MR," and WE are a young lady! What shall we do?
- Bewildered
Those Southern Men!
Now that we have dispensed with Mr. W.. back to the gay sassiety life.
Caroline Holt was over from Birmingham for the Art Cinema production -
We can't tell you who she was with cause he's a DAILY man and it's

its residents, new and old, could get ac-
quainted with each other. We think it was
a swell idea (we got free tea out of it).
Milling around were Charlotte Kinney, Ruth
Willets, Bea Selvin and Liz Draper. Helen
Bock, Rita Marshall and Mildred Bock were
listening to records. All in all it was very
successful and we think the other dorms
should all try it.
Even though A. A. has been like winter
all'week some hardy souls'have ventured forth into the wind, rain and sleet
to get their daily exercise. We can't understand such fortitude but to prove
it we saw, Ruth Gram and Jean Coller heading for the tennis courts clad in
shorts! Doris Kimball and Hone Hartwig were playing too. And to top
it off, Suzanne Ellis went in swimming.
Just to give you something to do when you're not studying (? we've
worked up a Tizzie Lish recipe for you. Take a cab driver, a cab, a large
collie dog, eight bottles of coke, two jumbo bottles of beer, and seven pas-
sengers; mix well and see what you get. If you don't believe it we'll refer
you to the parties concerned.

it's clothes for under the sun or
